For the past several months I have been slapping my palm to my forehead watching Brexit and Bordergate sink lower and lower into the political swamp (that apparently has NOT been drained!). I use to stupidly believe that in the “democratic” world we, the people, elected our Presidents and Prime ministers because politicians were supposed to represent the voice of their people. We get up out of armchairs and we waddle over to the voting booth and we mark very clearly who we think will best represent and lead us and we pop into the nicely sealed box. Am I right loons, am I right? Well, apparently NOT. Ever so cleverly a small chisel has been busily hacking away behind our democracy and reshaping it to look awfully like dictatorship.
No matter what name we place on the ballot our leaders believe once they are elected they have the right to do whatever the hell they like. And what is worse, the opposition leaders have been tarnished with the same brush. No matter who the “people” vote for, they have no voice. Now that to me is a dictatorship. Fortunately, there is one thing they can’t control, Youtube What were thinking?
