I do see what you're saying - that's the same point the 'angel on my shoulder' was making.
However, I didn't vote these buggers in. For several years now there's been no-one to represent me - that's the beauty of living in a democracy.
Edit to add - the opposition hasn't been a lot better than the government.
Now with (hopefully) only a few months or so to go before a general election, I think I can wait.
And I do believe it's my right to not vote for anyone unless I think they are a worthy candidate. Some of us would like voting slips with the option
'none of the above'
I'll give you an example - over the last couple of days a member of the government has resigned, something to do with the hugely entertaining
expenses scandal. Some of her constituents don't approve of her and would rather not vote for her. They said so on TV yesterday. BUT, unfortunately
for them there's no-one else representing the Labour Party to vote for. It's her or no-one.
This thread was only me being silly, but this article illustrates what we're up against:
