A statement, noted in Matthew D'Ancona's article in today's Sunday Telegraph, was one by a 'senior' Cameroon: ".......we have to reinvent the relationship between the citizen and the state."
FFS! Obviously I have no idea which 'senior' Cameroon suggested this idea - and lets face it, there are many dimwits from which to choose - but there is nothing, I repeat, nothing to reinvent. What does need repeating is that MPs are sent to Westminster to govern this country on behalf of the people and to enact laws to which the people assent.
It is so simple really in that MPs could begin by not handing control of this country to some supra-national, unaccountable and unelected body in a foreign land without specifically and previously having asked the people's permission; by swearing to place country above party; by not altering our democracy and how we elect our representatives without asking those who pay their wages, by not taking the taxpayer for a ride and abiding by the principle governing their expenses; and by acting as the parliamentarians they profess to be.
