MORI SURVEY REVEALS VOTERS DO NOT TRUST POLITICIANS – It would be fair to say that this is not exactly a revolutionary survey and most might be wondering why such a survey needed conducting in the first place.
The MORI survey revealed that four out of five people believe that their MPs are only in politics for their own financial gain and it’s little wonder when you look closely at their activities and overwhelming evidence of continuous dirty dealings.
Politics for most MPs is merely a way to game the system to their own advantage. Their positions are often used to further their careers, seek non-executive positions in high profile corporations or engage in other activities, such as ‘cash for questions’ in order to stuff their bank accounts with even more ill-gotten gains.
Liars, thieves and murderers, the halls of Parliament have them all but their true identities are cloaks with Savile Row silk suits and highly polished leather shoes. It is of course a farce, a smoke screen, a wolf in sheep’s clothing for I doubt you would find an honest person in the Houses of Parliament.
It’s only June and we’ve already had a belly full of scandals, from ‘cash for questions, first-class perks, U turns on promises, court cases of deceit and the list goes on and on.
I’ve often been accused of being cynical and yet when you look at the facts there is nothing cynical at all about my views of our illustrious politicians.
‘Scratch a liar, find a thief’ my mother always said and this has never failed to be true when it comes to our MPs. As the famous Sci-Fi series, the XFactor, put it; ‘The truth is out there’, but unfortunately not within the Houses of Parliament.
Parliament has never been a bastion for the greater good or to provide value for the taxpayers’ money. It is quite simply a place where the almost untouchable crooks gather to scheme and deceive the public.
The biggest lie is of course creating the illusion that Britain is a democracy. Of course anyone even considering this notion is either delusional or simply as bonkers as Lord Longford; who was convinced Mira Hindley was a changed woman and should be freed. Thank the lord that the majority could see through his madness and that Hindley died where she (and most politicians) belonged – behind bars.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; the only democratic element to our society is the vote which merely allows the public to vote in the next dictator.
Not convinced? There is overwhelming public support for a nationwide referendum on Europe and yet David Cameron refuses to provide such a democratic act. Of course Cameron wants to hide behind the smoke screen of legalities and yet his true motive is that he personally feels that it’s wrong for pulling out of the EU.
So where’s the democracy? One man, or a handful in Parliament against 65 million citizens – at what point did that become democratic.
If you want to be cynical you could ask why Cameron doesn’t want to pull out of the EU. Is it due to the fact that President Obama is offering Dave a nice lucrative deal if he can delay or better yet quash any notion of such a referendum?
Could it be that Cameron knows full well that his term in office is about to expire and that his refuge lies in the halls of Brussels where the British taxpayer will have to stump up for his £182,000 a year salary, plus expenses?
Yes, I could go on with a number of other theories but considering the actions and in-actions of those supposedly running Government I feel that many of the so-called ‘conspiracy theories’ are a little closer to the truth than most would like to admit.
Going back to the MORI survey it also revealed that public confidence of our MPs has been declining in recent years at an alarming rate. Again I doubt anyone would be reading this with a sharp intake of breath at the shock of such a finding.
Nearly 72% of the public distrust their MPs and this I do find shocking; it’s a mystery to me why the figure is not in the high nineties.
From the MORI survey one thing is for sure and that’s the fact that most hard working honest taxpayers have had their fill with David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband. As for the rest of the rabble it would appear that public sentiment is that most of them should be behind bars while others think that we should pack the lot of them off to Europe and then pull out of the EU.
Despite growing public contempt it is unlikely that the politicians will change anytime soon; there’s simply too much money to be made. Of course we have the luxury in 2015 of finally getting rid of Cameron just so we can install a brand new dictator.
I feel it’s time for a change and maybe UKIP could provide this but if the public really want democracy then a political party would need forming that allows for regular referendums to be staged on the important issues facing life in Britain.
What do you think of our Politicians? Would you like to see a Government installed that operates via a system of referendums? Please leave your comments below.
