Why do politicians insist in treating us like imbeciles?
They have less intelligence than the majority of the population of this country.
Just because they mostly come from privileged backgrounds and have gone through slapping each others dicks in doorways at Eton does not make them superior to the masses.
The structure of political wages should be as follows for a start.
Any elected MP should have to make do on only £35,000 a year maximum in wages, and then only if they are shown not to have more than £300,000 worth of personal assets, where upon the wage goes down to £25,000.
Any accommodation that is needed in London for their duties should be provided by the state.
This would force them to be grounded with the rest of us and make policies with fairness in mind as they will then be living within the means of the average voters of this country. i.e whatever they do will affect them directly.
The privilege of being voted into parliament should be just that, and if this were the case, we would have genuine politicians that actually care for the wellbeing of our country and not just there to wield power and shaft the lot of us.
"We are all in it together", I keep hearing this over and over, but it just does not ring true does it Cameron and Clegg? Oh! And I'm not leaving you lot out Labour.
If the bail out of the banks had been handled properly, like, let's say that the government drew up some loans that the banks then had to sign up to, let's say with an APR of 5% and were given a timescale to repay, let's say something like the length of a mortgage, 25 years, you can bet your arse they would have shifted themselves to repay the deficit the country ended up in in double quick time.
Yes I know there are other factors, but the fact that there is no way of really forcing the banking institutions to repay, it would have made sense to do it in a way they could understand, their way.
Now the politicians think that we are so thick that we could never understand AV, they know what's best for us obviously, the poor peasants that we all are.
This country has no proper representation of what the people want. It is unfair that a party wins a vote on the basis of getting only 35 to 40% of the vote. How is this just and democratic If 60 to 65% of all votes are against the party that wins?
Anyway, rant over, I'll leave you with one last thing.
Vote for AV in the referendum, it'll give them a swift kick up the arse, and might actually galvanise the political elite to sort themselves out. They only want you to vote no, because they know they will have to actually work for your votes in the future.
