when all political, rational, reasonable and reasoned
avenues of opposition to oppression are denied or
proven to be fraudulently inneficient, when all hope
of dignity is taken away, when all faith in the political
system is extinguished and proven to have been in
fact only an idealistic fantasy, when it finally becomes
clear that the notion of 'fairness' is a dream cherished
only by those to whom it is disallowed, only then might
the true course of action necessary to change the rise
of oppression be understood by the masses.

the true course is revolution. anything else is just
pissing into the wind.

That's a very long-winded way to say that you're a sore loser.

I appreciate that you are probably upset your political party of choice did not win the election, but why should that invalidate the opinions of the greater number of people who actively voted for them?

If more people voted for the Conservatives than any other party, and the Conservatives won the election as a result, that's hardly "fraudulently inefficient".

Was it realy free?
The VAST majority of people voted - not for what they thought their glorious leader would do for them, but because of what they were shown!
What were they shown?
Pictures of cameron holding a baby lamb, because they know crap like that sways the non thinking sheep.

It was free for me. I even took my own ink pen to be sure.
Stop with the whinging and claims of foul unless you have evidence to prove otherwise.
If people are too lazy to research party manifesto's and policies then tough # I say, start considering life more deeply than facebook I say, no sympathy.

Or maybe it was because milliband was a arogant twat who would not give the british public a voice in a EU referendom?

Maybe its because labours history of wars is still in peoples minds?

Maybe milliband should not have made ed balls shadow chancellor? The chancellor in power when our economy went down the crapper

The torys did not win.

Labour failed.

Well don't be so glum. Here in the U.S.A. we already know who will be our next president. It's like choosing from a menu based on crap.

Me to the waiter/waitress: Hmm, let me see. Should I pick the crap or the crap? Ok ,well let me go for the crap.

Waiter/Waitress: Fine selection Sir. Would you like to have a side of crap as well?

I would like to take a moment if I may in defense of the op.

Only joking the very fact that one party came out on top says that a nation made it happen.

I did not hear much talk of pencils not pens before the election.

First past the post was fine until it went the way that some did not want it to.

Its a scam i tells ya, we wos robbed.

God damn goverment stealing our votes and destroying freedom.

In the UK it is more like the freedom of choice.

Would sir like a poke in the eye or a kick in the balls, it's entirely up to you mind.

Evidence? Explain why cameron stood in front of tv cameras with a baby sheep in his arms! I'll give you a clue, its because he knows sheep follow sheep.



If people are too lazy to research party manifesto's and policies then tough # I say
But if the majority ARE too lazy, that makes our votes useless.



start considering life more deeply than facebook I say, no sympathy.
Never had a facebook account, and never will.

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

2.1 We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

2.2 That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

2.3 Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

2.4 But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

2.5 Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these States. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.


Might I suggest another approach....

Hahaha! That is exactly why I'm not whinging that 4.7% of the UK vote gets 56 Scottish Nationalist MP's, but 12.6% of the UK vote results in 1 UKIP MP.
That's democracy in the current system, I accept it, but then I'm more reasoned than blind whingers, every time.

I am pleased that 49.5% of the UK voted for the two parties who stood for a referendum on EU membership for the UK though.
Take the overwhelmingly independence seeking nationalist Scots votes away and it is over 50%.
