GUEST,Strollin' Johnny BS: Democracy in the UK ? (47) RE: BS: Democracy in the UK ? 09 Feb 04


I know I'm becoming a cantankerous, contentious and cynical old sod, my so-called-friends constantly remind me, but I've got to say that I was totally unaware that politicians have EVER represented their constituents. They don't vote according to OUR wishes (they seldom ask us for our opinions on anything), they vote almost unfailingly for what their party leaders tell them to vote for. If you accept that there are three main parties, each with a leader, it follows that the wishes of a maximum of three individuals are what decides our lives and our future. Sounds like a bum deal to me.

I stopped voting years ago, my side never won so what's the point?
Johnny
