Politics in the UK certainly are not democratic or fair and I wonder how this will pan out when cameron and club royal try to force their policies on people. I think we will be in for a lot of unrest and strikes. However if it gets us change to a fairer system, let cameron's head and that creepy osborne's fall, no one likes either very much apparently.
Is Britain Really a Democracy or just a Fudge of it?
the candidate that can bring the most jobs and strongest economy almost always wins.
