I say that MPs are a joke.
Half the time they are not in parliament. They say they are doing their other duties, seeing constituents (voters) and other government business. As
far as im concerned thats rubbish. They have jobs to do and that involves sitting in parliament all day from 9am to 5.30 with overtime when required.
That is what they are MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT. They are not Constituency Organisers or Political Oliarchs. They are members of parliement and they
should sit in parliament and consider everything that is said and vote according to their constituents wishes. Half the time they are not there.
You can watch them live on the internet (but if you watch live you must have a tax levied licence else watch it later as a rerun for free) and its
clear that half the time parlient is EMPTY and they vote for legislation and stuff. That is not right.
If most people only turned up for work 20% of the time they woulf be fired, not given 32% pay increases.
British polotics is a joke.
Democracy is about passing the vote to the people, but they dont consider their people, only their parties.
The people are NEVER consulted in referendums.
If you listen to them in parliement, most of the time they dont know what they are talking about.
Parliement was formed as a compromised by the King Of England such that he could formally tax the peasants, that is to formalise direct taxation as
opposed to the historic indirect taxation general carried out by lords.
By creating parliement the king averted civil discord and cemented his soverignty of the island of evil people, ENGLAND.
Whilst it has been changed slightly to appease people it is still built of 3 entities, the King, Lords and Commons who all in theory keep check on
each other. However, the Kings role (queen) is currently seen as redundent. Further, Lords are not elected, they are just EVIL spirits that need power
to sustain their existence in this realm, thay are mostly dead and seldom discussed but they have far greater power than the MPs.
The MP's whose job is to discuss and agree legislation should be in parliement doing that. But in general they are not. Instead they are greasing the
wheels of finance and hob nobbing with the elite.
There are few seats of power on this planet as archaic as parliement. It should be burnt to the ground and MPs should utilise moderna office space
such as REGUS virtual offices and utilse teleconfernecing to save money and ensure expediency and effieciency.
32% of them should be sent to the worst parts of the country to start minimum wage jobs, enforced for 10 years.
