Power to the People!
When- and if- we replace this bunch of unelected shite-holes with another bunch of unelected shite-holes, will we realise that we are not really a democracy, if such a thing actually exists, but a plutocracy?
We are, and ever have been such; plutocracy, feudocracy (did I just make that word up?) or whichever you wish to call it, we are and ever have been ruled by the wealthy.
We need people elected from the streets, never wealthy enough to not give a damn and always in fear of the electorate; people who will do our bidding, in our name; people who can gain little from selling our heritage, our homes and our rights to the highest bidder- because they will be us; our friends and family, neighbours and workmates. Directly responsible and answerable to US!
This is my call for revolution- peaceful if possible, violent if necessary. But we need change, change from the Thatcherite ‘it’s all mine’ mentality, to the rather more caring society I grew up with.
I alone cannot make this change; neither can you. But together, we are a force to be reckoned with.
