Politics, the battle of the many against the corrupt

Sunday 26 April 2015.

Dear Mr Cameron,

Nothing could highlight the vile state of politics and the election in Britain today than the utterly absurd, yet malicious, attempt by the Sun newspaper to discredit Nicola Sturgeon as a childhood doll abuser.

The smarm, charm, lies and propaganda merchants are really earning their pay and media moguls play fast and loose with anything resembling sense, reason, fact or truth.

The manifestos have been published yet they are in no way legally binding and are as tedious to read as the small print on a contract which few bother to read yet which is legally binding.

Why bother with the time and expense of publishing something that offers no protection or redress in law for the electorate and the promises made are entirely empty of any meaningful value?

Small wonder that so many are disenchanted with politics or completely disinterested, though blamed as apathetic. Our political system is utterly corrupt, bolstered by all the solemn, yet meaningless, ritual trappings of state, endorsed and sustained by the crown.

Politicians with honest intent are surrounded by scoundrels, liars and cheats in a House filled with braying donkeys.

I will be very glad when this election is over and the battle for a better Britain, for social justice, for meaningful politics and some semblance of democracy can continue by good hearted people who are prepared to wrestle with a political system that, in the main, despises ordinary people, favouring the rich, the powerful and the corrupt at the expense of the many.

Sharing Charlotte’s experience yesterday at her local Jobcentre was a vivid reminder that caring and consideration are revolutionary acts in a world dominated by financial and political corruption.
