Our dysfunctional system of governance.

It's a real problem knowing where to start, these days, with a critique of our current political system,our politicians and current government. Suffice to say they are no longer fit for purpose and well past their 'Best before Date' and in urgent need of reform.

The main downside to our current dysfunctional form of governance is that the views and opinions of the largely 'Silent Majority' are consistently overlooked.

The media's fortunes are now heavy linked with the current 'Establishment' and it is not in their own self interest to rock too many boats. The media's use of 'Vox Pops' readily portray the general public as the great unwashed but are careful to provide 'balance' with hand picked members of the public who happily agree with and spout support for the liberal left of centre shallow 'apple pie'  PC views they espouse.

Unless and until the majority have the real power, that our six demands would give them, to make our political class our servants instead of our masters we will continue to be unrepresented and unheard.

The direct influence of the vast majority of the public, with their common sense views, is what is missing from our current political system. 


  1. "The whole history of the progress of human liberty shows that all concessions yet made to her august claims, have been born of earnest struggle...If there is no struggle there is no progress...This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both."

    ― Frederick Douglass

  2. You are right if we want political reform we, that is us the people, will have to peacefully fight for it with firm resolve and endless determination.
