GUEST,Strollin' Johnny BS: Democracy in the UK ? (47) RE: BS: Democracy in the UK ? 10 Feb 04

Teribarse- not bloody idle (I work on average 60-hours a week) or disinterested (I wouldn't be here in this thread if I was), simply too tired and too sickened by 57 years of living in a system whereby the wishes of the majority of the people are ignored by a small band of arrogant, self-serving, mainly career-politicians, many of whom don't even reside in their consituencies and who toe the party line in order to ensure their future career progression, whilst we Joe Soaps are forced to pay the huge bills for their idealogically-driven bugger-ups. Doesn't matter what party they belong to, they pay lip-service to the notion of serving their constituents whilst blindly following party ideology and dogma.

The 'Party Apparatus' of which you're so clearly in awe is a flawed system whereby a small number of determined and vociferous people with axes to grind get together in order to enforce their will on others.

And don't tell me that I've no right to moan if I don't engage in the party system - it's not necessary to be a part of it in order to have the right to criticise. I don't smoke or take illegal drugs either, but I know they're bad for me and I strongly advise others against doing it.
