That's the problem I'm afraid. A lot of English people are scared of change. They tend to live with the mantra "better the devil you know" and
this means sadly there will never be any hope.
Yes some will vote for fringe parties, but that's all they will amount to, why? Because at the end of the day when the voting majority stands in the
voting station they defer to the original three.
A few months ago on BBC they were asking members of the public which way they would vote for the European elections and it was astonishing when they
asked this lady, and do you know what she said?
"when I was little my mother turned to me and said, this was a labour household and that's the way it is and that's the way you will vote" and the
idiot said that even though she didn't support their views anymore she would still be voting for them because it was what her family had told her to
do decades ago.
How many idiots like that do we have in this country that vote a certain way because their families have voted that way for generations? That's not
democracy... That's just stupidity.
You know people say, why vote for these small parties it's just a wasted vote. Yes but if everyone did vote for these parties then it wouldn't be a
wasted vote, would it?
In the end it comes down to having the courage for change and most people in England are scared of things not working out. My answer to that is yes
it's scary, yes it might be hard, but you usually have to work hard for the best things in life. So stop voting for the three parties that have
gotten comfortable and shake up the system. At the very minimum it might scare the main parties into the action of listening to the English public.
