ARE BRITISH VOTERS DESPONDENT AND CYNICAL? – David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, has been told by Ministers and MPs that he will likely be replaced if he attempts to form another Coalition with Nick Clegg, the leader of the Liberal Democrat Party.
It’s a foregone conclusion that Nick Clegg will want another Coalition deal for he is fully aware that the voting public wouldn’t give their consent for him to lead the country; he is quite frankly a non-entity, a wet and completely and utterly incompetent.
Unfortunately Clegg is not alone with this honour as recent polls indicate that Ed Miliband, leader of the Labour Party, now has less than 46% of Labour Party support and it’s almost a foregone conclusion that the Labour Party will oust him and present a new party leader in the hopes of securing a victory in the 2015 General Elections.
I am not convinced Labour, whoever they decided to elevate, will be able to win the next General Election as the voting public are still fully aware of the damage Tony Blair did to the country during his tenure.
You could say that the race for leading the country is a three horse race; that is the Tories, Labour and Liberal Democrat. Taking a factual approach it is very unlikely Labour or the Liberal Democrats will ever secure enough votes which leaves us with just one alternative; the Tories.
Will David Cameron still be leader of the Tories in 2015? That of course remains to be seen but it might be that Cameron is their only credible choice which doesn’t say much for the Tory Party.
What exactly has Cameron achieved whilst in power? Our Foreign Aid bill has increased and austerity measures are squeezing the taxpayer to almost breaking point. Businesses continue to close, even some large retailers have gone bust due to rising costs and dwindling consumer spending.
We’re now handing more money to the EU than ever before and we’re forced to bail out other EU member states that are run by incompetent fools.
Crime continues to climb and most of the rise is attributed to the lack of immigration controls. Despite the fact that the Home Secretary, Theresa May, finally got rid of Abu Qatada after 10 years and millions spent on Qatada’s legal aid bill. Unfortunately Qatada is only one of the thousands of other foreign criminals residing in the UK at the expense of the taxpayer that we cannot deport.
As for the voters’ wishes these are continuously ignored. We’ve asked for an EU referendum, but Cameron won’t give us our democratic right. Yes he’s currently blackmailing the British voter with the promise of an EU referendum if he’s re-elected but even if that happens we’ll have to wait until 2017.
That means we will have to wait for another 4 years and with the current level of damage that Brussels is inflicting on Britain it may well transpire that a new law will be introduced, by Brussels, which forbids such a referendum.
Sound a little cynical? The stark truth is that Brussels is continuously imposing its will upon the British people through non-elected commissioners who create legislation that affects our lives.
The more I look at the situation the more I feel there is no way out and it’s almost irrelevant which Party gets the vote in 2015 because all we will be doing is voting in the next dictator who will continue to ignore the democratic voice of the people.
Again you’re probably thinking I’m being overly cynical, but before you pass judgment look closely at the Lobbying Bill that’s currently in draft form.
Many MPs have already come out to voice their concerns that the Bill is simply a complete and utter waste of time; one Labour MP, Graham Allen, openly called it a ‘Dogs Diner’ due to its contents having no benefit to the British public and even goes as far as making business meetings with Ministers clandestine.
How good is your memory? Cast your mind back just a few months ago to where Tim Yeo and Patrick Mercer were caught on film saying that they could help firms meet influential political figures in order to garner support for their cause.
This week it was revealed that the next Conservative Conference will consist of less than 48% of Party supporters; the remaining seats are to be taken with ‘paying’ guests so that they may have access to the Prime Ministers ear – of course the costs vary depending on whether you basically want a message passing on or a private meeting with the Prime Minister.
Democracy in the UK? The very idea is ludicrous; the UK, very much in the same way as the U.S, is run by the lobbyists who work on behalf of large corporations in persuading Government to act in a certain way is completely devoid of any democratic process.
It doesn’t look good at all, in fact the future of Britain is hanging in the balance and many feel that it won’t be long before the EU swallows us whole and strips away any sovereign identity we may have.
Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? That really depends on how brave the British voter is come the 2015 General Election. There is constant talk of more and more people looking beyond the three major political parties to an untested entity known as UKIP.
According to the latest statistics UKIP have approximately 14% of the British vote. If a General Election were called tomorrow it wouldn’t be sufficient to even secure a possible coalition deal.
The question is how will this vote swing at the actual General Election? Will the British people dig deep down and take a leap of faith and bring UKIP to power? Currently that scenario is all guess work but at this point in time it is unlikely.
There is however two issues that the British public might like to consider and if UKIP can hammer this home during their campaign the outcome of the General Election might produce a surprising result.
We already know that UKIP will offer an EU referendum and we know they want to slash or do away with Foreign Aid – both these elements alone could solve many of the UK’s problems.
I honestly believe that the three major parties are going to be in for a real shock come 2015 and I also feel that if the British public don’t show a modicum of nerve and try something new then it is likely that we will suffer further and the EU’s grip on controlling us will get even tighter.
We often say that there are dark days ahead and that in itself is true but there is always light at the end of the tunnel for those with vision and those willing to take a chance. Frankly I don’t see how UKIP, if elected, could make things any worse than they are now but if Cameron is re-elected then I for one will be on the next plane out and completely wash my hands of Britain for it is likely I won’t have a country within the next 10 years under another Tory Government.
What do you think will happen in the next General Election? Do you think the three major parties are in for a surprise or will the British public lose its nerve? Please leave your comments below.
