ASOCIAL DEMOCRACY

As the prospect of a Cameron government,
ably supported by Nick Clegg’s LibDems, looms ever larger – my sense of
despondency grows deeper.

The anarchy of the banks and stockmarkets, gambling with peoples lives,
this is the moving force behind our whole political system. The Tories,
defenders of inherited wealth and tax avoidance, are their front-line
supporters. The press, undemocratically supported by their advertisers,
attempt to persuade you to support their propietors political interest.
When, as a consumer or productive employee, were you ever asked whether
the profits derived from your endeavours, and purchases, should be
utilized to uphold the Tory press and indeed the self-same party by more
direct, and even occasionally dubious means? The politicians are merely
the mouthpiece, and innefective monitors, of the City’s abusers. The
true wealth creators, the working class, are overlooked by these
fearless defenders of the pin-striped parasites.

In my younger (political) activist days the greatest scorn we could pour
upon any prospective candidate was that they were "careerist"; these
days the word careerist seems to be umbilically linked with the title
politician. All the major parties vie to see who can do the most to
maintain the status quo. Yes they’ll offer a minor tweak here a
deceptive twist there but all they can do is proffer a band-aid to their
victims when what the whole system needs is major surgery. The prospect
looms of a VAT increase whoever attains power, as if they don’t realize
that this will hit the most impoverished members of society the
hardest!
