Vote? Why should I? (Politics #1)

There’s a rally in Trafalgar Square today – the object is to try to persuade the public to get out there and vote. I’d love to. There isn’t a political party for me though.

  • Labour/Conservative. I’m grouping them together because they are both right wing parties (I’m sorry, but Labour is no longer even remotely left wing), and I can’t drive a wedge between them. They’re the same side of the same coin. To make matters worse, they’re both obsessed with pleasing the tabloid classes. ‘Are You Thinking What I’m Thinking?’. Actually, no. I’m not. I’m thinking it’ll be a cold day in hell before I vote for either of you.
  • Liberal. I used to be a supporter of the Liberal party. Actually, I’m still a member – but only because I feel it’s my duty as an Englishman to support the underdog. I won’t be voting for bum-face and his politically correct cronies. A Liberal government would be very different from the Labour/Conservative alternative – but (unfortunately) it wouldn’t be any better.
  • Veritas, the Naz… er… UKIP. Er. No. I may be increasingly depressed with the state of politics – but I’m not stupid.

I am one of the most political people I know. And when I begin to think like this there is something very rotten at the core of British politics.

So what would I like to see? Okay. Continue reading this blog to see my manifesto for the party I’d vote for. Discuss – change it for the better – at the moment these are just my ideas, and so very far from being perfect.

  1. It is a fact that the largest part of the planet’s news provision is controlled by right wing capitalists. Their purpose is to spread the cause of capitalism and increase the planet’s gap between wealthy and those in need. Left Insider provides left wing news from reputable news sites such as Left Futures, Red Pepper, Novara, The Canary, Buzz Feed, Left Foot Forward etc. Everyone has the right to fully exploit our own potential and we all have the obligation to assist others maximise theirs.
