To me this just a load of old tosh because these people in thirsting for power will be doing so at all costs yet the drones in the crowds behind these
party leaders just smile and nod like brain addled automatons, seemingly forgetful of the past elections where much of the same was promised in much
the same way.
It therefore stands to reason that the politicians will promise much that we would find believable without considering that these promises are almost
certainly carefully drafted from the fantasies of their orbiting spin doctors. A lie has to be believable and once in power those who have voted will
soon notice that they were lied to like every other pre-election promise that is always thrown at us like throwing a bone to a dog. Perhaps we
deserve what we get because we never seem to learn that they treat us like smiling idiots that nod at every word and are all too happy to forget the
promises of the past and hope for the best in the future.
There is no future with this political game because it is not sincere or built upon integrity and we are not treated with the respect we as vote
wielders deserve. They are meant to serve us not spin us round and round until we cannot tell which way is up. However I am not confused as I now
assume them all to be as dishonest as a nest of sick vipers that would sell out their own children if it would gain them a vote or three. I often wish
I could close my eyes again and just believe in the media spin but those days are long gone and sitting here I think it is not such a great mind
liberator to assume the powers that rule are all lying to us because they covet only our vote not our lives.
Castles in the sky, smoke and mirrors and lies built on believable promises that in the end were always going to be a big fat nothing. That is how I
expect to see much of the real substance behind these promises after the election is long over. Left and right, it is all the same only the colours
change much like a flag and a flag is just a price of flimsy material that was meant to distinguish one side form another.
We are not destined to work together under such a system and that is probably the reason we will not progress in the political sense and is also
probably why we be destined to believe the future lies and the spin from these “people” because we think this is the pinnacle of democracy when I
actually suspect that we are a democracy in cynical name only.
Only yesterday I saw Cameron talking with great emotion about the death of his son Ivan. In his position I would never have dreamed of talking about
the death of a son or daughter as to me such a thing is private territory and would seem terribly disrespectful to their memory and yet because he
thinks that the public would be interested he should therefore deliver.
Brown the clown did the same thing and I thought he was a disgrace to all fathers when he did this. I can now also place Cameron into this same
category of the disgraceful father who will sink to any low – including a child’s death to gain political capital. It is mind boggling that
Cameron would slate the three MP’s in the dock regarding their expenses on live TV and yet earlier he brings up the death of his own son as capital
for his own political ends.
Pot + Kettle +black = hypocrite!
As far as I am concerned, they are all snakes turning on each other as and when they see an opportunity to make some political advantage and it is
telling how far they will sink if they are willing to use the death of a son or daughter you and I would never dream of using because unlike them we
are still human beings.
I will vote SNP as it happens not because I support the SNP like some unthinking drone but because ever since I was given a medical discharge from the
army I have wished for my country to break away from England and in that regard the SNP are the closest to my political wants.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend and I class those in Westminster to be my enemy and also to be an enemy of all who are honest and who have any
semblance of integrity.
That said, though I assume the SNP to be as corrupt as these muppets down in Westminster I have no choice but to play the game with the cards I was
dealt or I am just ranting impotently from the sidelines? If I give my vote towards the effort to break my Scotland away from England by voting for
the SNP then even though it is just a single vote, I will sleep better and maybe even smile a little about it because I am Scottish and I was never a
willing member of the United Kingdom but to be a member of the society you must play the game. It is refreshing to find there are many others around
me who are coming to that mindset and who are no longer so willing to play this filthy game any longer. As a disclaimer am not anti English at all, I
am anti establishment and the establishment I despise above all others happens to be in based England.
It is a sad state of affairs that I cannot believe what a politician says at face value and must always try to find hidden meaning to the convoluted
and squirming things they say. That says much for where their minds are and how honest they are as people when it comes to how they rationalise
integrity and how they relate their political ideals and methods with the voters.
I am sorry for ranting all over your thread but when it comes to politicians I would have them all hanging in a gibbet if it was up to me, they have
all but ruined us.
