BRITISH VOTERS HAVE LITTLE TRUST IN MPS – According to a watchdog survey only about one fifth of the British public has any trust in their MPs.
I’m shock, stunned and not a little amazed either – you mean the British public doesn’t trust its Government?
OK, I’m being facetious for I have to be honest and state that I’m amazed the level of trust for our politicians is actually that high.
According to the report it states that some 9 years ago British confidence in MPs being honest stood at 31 percent and when you think about it, considering that was Blair’s era, that in itself is remarkable – either that or it’s just another lie.
You see, as in the words of the Bard; “There lies the rub” for the British public have been fed so many lies, been deceived and stolen from it’s almost impossible to distinguish the honest ones from the crooks.
Look at someone like Chris Huhne; now here’s a real special piece of work. Firstly he thinks he’s above the law due to his position as a Minister, and then he lies about trying to pass over speeding penalty points in order to evade conviction.
As we know it didn’t work and Mr. Huhne was sentenced to 8 months imprisonment. Yes he only served 8 weeks but the result was that this is one less liar in the House of Common – although it might appear common practice to replace one with another.
It’s not just about telling porkies but also that of competence and indeed dedication. The issue here is that most of our MPs really don’t have much of an idea of what they are doing and like David Cameron, our illustrious Prime Minister, will shirk off work for a holiday in the sun whilst austerity stricken British taxpayer’s couldn’t afford a round of drinks at their local pub; let alone swan off to some tropical destination – no less than four times this year.
When Mr. Cameron is working, the dozy idiot then leaves his vital red Government briefcase, full of sensitive documents, on the train whilst he pops off to the loo and for some well deserved refreshments in First Class… First what? Yes I know you’re probably not familiar with First Class but that’s the place where our lazy, incompetent and lying politicians like to frequent at your expense.
Back to the report, and nearly half of us think politicians are in politics purely for personal gain – looking at the offensive amount MPs get paid, and their recent pay rise, and again I’m astounded that the figure isn’t running in the high 90 per cent bracket.
It looks like public confidence has slumped to an all time low; but again I am truly surprised the figures are not a lot more damning.
I have to say that I don’t trust any of them at present; which is regardless to the political affiliation.
It is of course folly to think that all MPs are lazy and incompetent crooks however, those that are honest rarely seem to rise above the soil and stretch towards the sunlight. Unfortunately, it now appears that anytime we see a budding rose there are the rest of them that will liberally apply manure so that they wilt in the sewage created.
I often think that being a politician must be the most depressing of jobs for one knows that nothing is ever going to be achieved; for there are always those who will gang up to suppress your ideologies that measures can be implemented in order to make things better.
I would like to think that the British public will vote with the conscience in the 2015 General Election but it’s likely they’ll be duped by the socialistic lies of Ed Miliband, the social utopia of Nick Clegg or the Britain is Great and everything will be alright rhetoric from David Cameron (providing you don’t vote in a bunch of fruitcakes and racists).
Will UKIP be any better? Many are currently feeling disillusioned over UKIP’s recent antics – notably that of Godfrey Bloom calling women at the UKIP conference ‘sluts’.
Regardless of your political views I doubt very much if you have a firm belief in any one party being able to live up to its propaganda.
If we follow the statistics of the recent report it’s also likely you are thinking the only one to benefit will be the politician you vote in; and how many lies he or she has told you in order to garner your vote.
Yes, that is the state of Britain today and it’s why I rarely refer to it as Great Britain for Great Britain wasn’t built on a lie with some sleazy politician with their hands firmly lodge in the taxpayer’s purse.
Dr Mark Philip, chairman of the Committee’s Research Advisory Broad noted that the public require politicians to demonstrate seven key principles; these being selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.
On that basis I wonder how many of us could honestly say that any of our politicians admirably cover all seven or indeed come close.
