It doesn’t matter who you vote for. It doesn’t matter who wins, we’ll still get the same old shit: a degraded NHS, cuts in services, higher taxes, exploited minorities, richer rich, poorer poor. Since Blair, all the parties have been converging into a kind of homogenous morass of corruption. Like putrescence from all over a sick body gathers in one place to form a boil – throbbing, full of puss, waiting to explode and spread its vile stench everywhere.
The similarities between the present day parties far outweigh their differences. They’re all friends, no matter what they say. All those words mean nothing. Think of pro-wrestling. They’re all in the business of deception and they really don’t want to hurt each other. We’re the dupes.
All the party leaders express concern about immigration in one way or another. The only way to prevent tragedies like mass drownings in the Mediterranean is to selflessly devote ourselves to improving the economic conditions of those poorer countries until they are on a par with the western power-nations or, as my ex calls them, the fat countries. We shouldn’t see immigrants as a threat to anything; we shouldn’t exploit them by plundering their doctors, engineers, scientists, nurses and other skilled workers. Nor should we exploit their unskilled masses to do low-paid menial jobs. But we do. And every political party is too scared to do anything about it.
POLITICS IS THE ART OF BREAKING PROMISES.
(They were disingenuous promises in the first place).
Politics is prevarication. Despite all the bellowing, POLITICS IS THE ART OF DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
Nothing that will upset the comfortable well-rewarded lives of the politicians, that is, but talking endlessly about how much they have achieved and what they are going to do – or what they would do if only the previous administration hadn’t fucked everything up.
You think you have democracy? Think again. Mrs. Pankhurst must be turning in her grave. Like the Roman Empire (and the British, come to that), the seeds of our cherished democracy’s destruction were sowed from within.
