Sir Billy Connolly once stated that "the desire to be one should stop anyone from becoming one!" He was making this quip about politicians. "They are liars for a living" being another of his observations. That shambolic, laughing stock, who purport to be representatives of the people, yet in reality are a bunch of self-serving half-wits, are back on the campaign trail. Once again seeking election to the job title Member of Parliament and a constitutional role which revolves around the democratic process that's been the bedrock of the UK's identity since the inception of the concept. Me, and the vast majority of folk, pissed off with politics? You'd better believe it.
I can't wait for that hapless Labour Party representative to knock our door - game on. Entertainment, on this scale, delivered free to your doorstep, bloody brilliant - "you knocked on my door, I didn't invite you here", so both barrels are perfectly acceptable under these circumstances. But it won't stop there, the Conservative and Lib/Dems can expect the same hostile reception. The whole lot of the established mainstream parties have lost sight of what the man on the street actually wants - the people who make up the majority of the voters, exactly the same ones who want to leave the EU, in this laughable exercise. Farage is no saint, his political career is based upon a flawed viewpoint, in my opinion, yet he is absolutely spot on with his "need for a political revolution" stance.
The only way out of this whole, farcical, mess is for the election to produce a hung parliament. Under these circumstances all of the political parties will have to speak with each other, attempting to find common ground rather than exploiting differences in manifesto promises. That Boris has the arrogance to think that he's the only one with a way out of the situation speaks volumes about his unsuitability for the role of PM. Corbyn is a disgrace to the memory of so many great socialist personalities of our past, politicians and activists who fought to get the working man a voice only for him to portray a party where only one opinion is of importance - his! Jo Swinson, bless her! How the f**k can a party purport to be in favour of democracy when, after the result of a referendum, goes into the fray supporting the opposite side to the argument. Let's hope she hasn't made any plans for the wallpaper inside No.10?
Cum December 13th, all of these uncertainties will have been resolved (in my dreams) and the UK will, once again, embark on a journey to leave/remain in the EU. With the global marketplace such an easy place to access, thanks to the advent of the internet, what difference does in, or out, make to the evolving demographic of the UK within a global economy?
Instead of reading from the party lines, prospective politicians would do far better if they conveyed their thoughts directly to those most affected by their actions. If you want me to vote for you then at least have the decency to visit my address. Too much of an effort for you? You can guess my answer when asked "will you vote for me?"
