Gov Hypocrisy

Of all the septics I know none voted for the infidel bush. So who did??

As for Bliar you only have to look at the toe rags on the councils to see what they are.

Why is it when you have grid lock and you need that new bridge they have meeting after fecking meeting costing tens of thousands employing surveys then when it is granted finally the local MP pops up telling you how he has fought the good fight and secured the bridge but it will have to be payed for in the private sector. And it will be a toll bridge.

Why is it that the local hospital has been told to shed jobs to balance the books through performing to many operations. There was me thinking that was the calling of them there places??

Then the same area we have a new mental hospital being built in the private sector. NHS patients will be treated there so who pays?? If we are shedding jobs in one area where does the money come for the other.

I am sick and tired of our elected governmnets hypocrisy- today a government minister stated that sadam has got what he deserved whilst the same time a statement is issued that they want to see the worldwide abolishment of the death penalty - they might! - but survey after survey of the population of this country would like to see its return for certain crimes.

Blair and his cronies are supposed to represent US, but when we dont conform to his blinkered vision of the world we are little englanders - homophobes - racisits or at best a 'vocal minority. They are the most undemocratic government in the UK in living memeory, policy after policy forced onto England is pushed through thanks to a majority owned due to MPs elected in Scotland where these policies have place in law.

The NHS, Educational System and the Armed Forces going down the pan and all we get is sound bite after sound bite.

And the really sad thing is we voted them in and then kept them in.

MPs: Our Representatives? Oh no! Just think where that might have led in 1938 when most of the electorate backed Chamberlain and he appeared on the balcony at Buckingham Palace after his Munich Agreement. MPs are not elected as representatives/delegates of the electorate (as they are broadly speaking in the US House) but as independent people usually affiliated to a political party and its programme. When you elect your MP you are electing an individual. If you don't like his/her behaviour in power you have the option of voting in someone else at the next General Election or of standing for Parliament yourself and persuading the electorate to vote you into Parliament and then begin the long ascent up (along or down) the greasy pole of power.

I must be honest Mikh, I prefer the Commons as it is. Just imagine if MPs responded to every Sun inspired, fictional, moral panic or complaint! They'd probably privatise the RN and do away with your (public sector) pensions. Privatising all public sector pensions might be popular with the public (it would be at the moment): that does not necessarily make for sensible policy. Moreover, it is typically the vociferous minority who get heard, not the silent majority.

Short term memory Mikh. Thatcher did the same to other parts of the UK where she had no mandate, most notably Scotland.
