U.K. democracy in terminal decline

29 posts in this topic

If only it was that, it might be a bit more fair. But look at 2005: mr. Tony Blair got in on about 20% of the total possible Electorate.

And then there's the curiosity of the U.S. system, where Mr. G.W. Bush could win, despite getting fewer votes than his opponent ..

Well, that could also happen with the British electoral system.Everywhere where the election is decided by the winner takes all district systems that can happen.

Or we could go over the the Greek system where our leaders are chosen by Brussels

Two old pals, a French and British man were walking along the beach arguing over which of their country's was better. Suddenly they stumbled over a dingy vase half buried in the sand. As they both reached down to pick it up at the same time and brush it off a Genie pops out and says "You have awoken the Great Genie from a long, long sleep. I usually grant two wishes but since you both found me I will give you one each!"

The British gentleman, still feeling a little chapped about his old pals comments said "Me first!" "I want an impenetrable wall, 20 meters high and 3 meters thick and 20 meters deep built around my great land so no frenchmen can ever set foot in her again!" The genie says "your wish is my command".

The frenchmen, a little more cautious with his one wish, asks the genie "this wall is 20m high?" yes. "20m deep? yes. "Impenetrable?" Absolutely thundered the genie. His friend is smiling ear to ear.

The frenchman says back to the genie "Well then, fill it with water!"

I've seen the same joke but the other way around.

Britain is screwed anyway, the people in power - joke.

these people have'nt got a clue about day to day living for most of the populace.

The whole country is in decline, and people dont really care because there

happy in there day to day lives, living just above the bread line, watching there soaps and jeremy kyle.

Sad state of affairs i know, but untill the masses wake up and see whats accutally happening nothing will change.

Still, the people in power know what good for us.

As for people not "discussing current affairs" etc the power people have employed divide and conquer tactics.

plus the fact the price of going out to the pub is robbery, the pub being a place where people can meet and talk about stuff, work, living, etc

it can't be done for most famillies.

still my 2 cents...

nice post OP. :tu:

Hear Hear!! couldn,t agree with you more sir, voters are so disillusioined by the clowns they send to Westminster in the forlorn hope that some good may come of it, that they now turn away from their universal sufferage or else think about opting for extreme right wing nationalist parties (Partei,s). The danger or maybe the hope is that a new form of national socialism will re-emerge, a'la Nazi,sm, unlikely but still a dark lurking danger unless our "Pollie,s" GET A FRIGGING GRIP and STOP TROUGHING IN THE SWILL BIN of the WESTMINSTER VILLAGE.,

Rant over, awaiting incoming
