What Is Wrong With British Politics - Well With Lib/Lab/Con

Consider the following:

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious.
But it cannot survive treason from within.
An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.
But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
A murderer is less to fear.
The traitor is the plague.

Cicero

Now equate that with our three main political parties. 'A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious.....the traitor wears their face and their arguments......he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men......He rots the nation - but it cannot survive the treason within. The traitor is the plague'

Just about sums up Brown, Cameron and Clegg in a nutshell, as the saying goes, does it not? 

Consider: they, the political elite, all want Britain to remain a member of the European Union - yet they all wish to 'govern' the country, but cannot as membership of the EU means they are subservient to Brussels; they all wish to retain central government control, whilst they talk about devolution of power - which they cannot grant as 'central control' is the system on which the EU is based; they all discuss how to 'rescue' Britain's economy - yet cannot as they are 'controlled', or soon will be, by their subservience to the EU; they all discuss Britain's foreign influence and future policy, yet their hands are tied as foreign policy is an EU competence meaning the EU controls foreign policy.

In short they are the traitors who move within the country. Oh yes, they wear our faces, speak our language and pander to our arguments - but they pay no attention to those whom they are supposed to represent, instead continuing with their 'programmes' to enslave us, to control us in thought, word and deed.

A nation can only cede its sovereignty - the ability to govern itself - with the consent of the people, yet we are not asked if we agree. They believe they know best, yet who exactly are they? They are the ones who present themselves to us, the people, as our 'leaders', our 'caretakers', our 'guardians'. The most unfortunate aspect of their 'portfolio', or cv, is that they fail on every aspect - they are no more than our 'leaders', 'caretakers' or 'guardians' than our closest enemy, they are after their own personal and political agenda.

When will those whose only interest appears to be the latest reality television show, the latest 'happenings' in our 'soaps', the latest 'star' to top the pop record charts - when will these people wake up and realise what is happening to Britain? Remember the film 'Rollerball', starring James Caan? Keep the people entertained and the people are happy. But then who is watching the 'governing'? It can be argued that that is a situation the three main parties are attempting to 'engineer'.

It can only be hoped that those who read this blog, and run blogs of their own, will spread the degradation that is happening in Britain in respect of its standing in the world, its society and to democracy per se. Whilst it is recognised that all bloggers have their 'bete-noir', or favourite subject, nothing is more important than Britain's democracy. It has been shown, for example with climate change and Pachauri, how the blogosphere has 'led the field' in showing both to be the scam they are, with the MSM scrambling to catch up.

The MSM don't wish to 'write' about the degradation that the 'political elite' are wreaking on Britain - it is up to the blogosphere to lead the way and one can only hope that those bloggers with a large readership will pick up the baton that us 'lesser blogs' are attempting to carry.

Think on that, people, bloggers and MSM - and let us do something about it!

If that guy Mohammad, or whatever his name was, did, then it should be a piece of cake for a Brit!
