JEREMY PAXMAN ADMITS HE DID NOT VOTE IN THE LAST ELECTION – Jeremy Paxman has astounded viewers by openly admitting he didn’t vote during the last election as he found all parties completely uninspiring.
Full Story … Daily Mail
I can assure Mr. Paxman he is not alone; in fact I personally didn’t bother with the vote in the last four general elections.
Why didn’t I vote? For pretty much the same reason Jeremy Paxman didn’t; although where Mr. Paxman feels that the parties were uninspiring, I felt that voting for liars, thieves and murders was not conducive to creating a responsible society.
Mr. Paxman’s also feels, much to my surprise, that anyone who abstains from the vote really has no place on passing comment on the political arena.
Au contraire – I personally feel this puts myself and Mr. Paxman in a unique position as we are not tempted to take sides in a political debate and therefore create more objectivity in the process.
Recently Mr. Paxman interviewed Russell Brand who said that people had certainly become disillusioned – that’s an understatement if ever I heard one.
The real issue here is that it doesn’t matter a fig who you vote for, apart from UKIP, for the other major political parties all want to hand power over to the EU.
I’m afraid the only conclusion I could possibly deduce is that our politicians are so incompetent that they would rather hand over power to a despot dictatorship than having tackle the problems that Britain is facing themselves.
Undertaking such a course of action is far easier for those in Government; it simply allows them to point the finger of blame to someone else, which effectively allows them to be free of any real admonishment and in the process retain their tenure.
Such a notion is almost unquestionably the reason why the British Government employs over 500,000 civil servants – they are effectively the Ministers or MPs scapegoats as administration is often used as a way to reflect the failings of those supposedly in control.
I often viewed Russell Brand as nothing much more than a comical clown but listening to his views in the interview with Mr. Paxman it is clear that he has a passion for Britain but also truly despondent as to what Britain has become and indeed how it is run.
Russell Brand is unequivocally correct in that Britain does need a political revolution – maybe it’s time we all abstained from voting until we can find a political party that will serve the interests of the people and not the privileged public schoolboys.
During Mr. Paxman’s interview with Russell Brand, Mr. Paxman suggested that by not voting leaves a disparity in democracy. Yes, it is perfectly correct for without the public vote democracy doesn’t effectively work.
However, what are the choices? Do we exercise our democratic right and indeed what is viewed as a duty, simply to vote in the next dictator?
It is undeniable that the European Parliament is a dictatorship for none of the EU Commissioner’s, including the President of the European Parliament, is democratically elected by the taxpayer.
What about our own Government, are they truly democratic in their approach to governing Britain?
Again I would argue that they are simply democratically elected dictators. Evidence of this can be seen with the issues over our membership in the EU – long have we called upon David Cameron to hold an EU referendum and he has duly refused to allow such a democratic process to be implemented.
You may not be a fan of Russell Brand but watch the interview video above, for there is no denying that his views and concerns are frank, honest and genuine – traits that are completely devoid in politicians; which is why I will continue to abstain until a political party arises that will allow democracy to prevail.
