Thread Name: BS: Whither now England?
Subject: RE: BS: Whither now England?
I wrote to all of the local candidates (apart from the Greens)in today's elections asking why there was virtually no mention, in their election literature, of the most pressing problem of the 21st Century - the environment. I have not received a single reply (presumably they regard environmentalists as nutcases?).

Anyway, I suspect that the real reason why they didn't reply is because the ideologies of their parties are, essentially, 19th Century ones - now all deeply corrupted by neo-liberalism (the Tories, of course, didn't need much corrupting!) and they have no answers. If we have to wait until the 23rd Century for a truly 21st Century political ideology (one that puts the environment first) to emerge - it will be far too late!

I'm hoping that UKIP is just a 'flash-in-the-pan' - does anyone remember the SDP?
