Can we Start a Democratic Revolution, Blogger of the UK?

As I walk to the village post office, about one and a half miles away, I pass at least three homes with repossession notices posted. I feel saddened by the plight of the people who can no longer afford to keep a roof over their head, or to support their family. In the city, the only shops I see full of people buying are those which offer "EVERYTHING FOR £1!" There is ample evidence here in the UK that its citizens are suffering under the current economic crises. More sinister and frightening is the set of thieves, liars and morally bereft individuals who form the government with which we have been burdened.

My blood boils and I am rendered speechless with rage as I listen to the news on BBC Radio 4. I hear more and more examples of how the money belonging rightly to those citizens is being grabbed and squandered by the very people we hoped would run our country in a honest, fair and democratic way. Some bloody hopes! The Mother of All Parliaments" is now a nest of corruption and greed, sinking under the lies, cheating and false promises of our so-called leaders and representatives. The hypocrisy of all those who have misused funds and abused privileges for their own gain absolutely beggars belief.

They have bleated constantly that they have done nothing wrong, they have stayed within the rules, so it is fine to own three houses, paid for by the voters, or to buy expensive baubles for Christmas, or to have expensive repairs carried out, all at the expense of a population struggling to make ends meet. My friend suggested to me that the army should be sent in to rout them out, throw them in the Tower of London and set up a government with integrity and moral backbone. He thought Joanna Lumley, who has so successfully championed the cause of our brave Gurkhas could head up such a team.

My plea is that all bloggers get online and offer their opinions on the disgusting misuse of public money and the even worse lack of morality and integrity. They might also like to suggest what could be done to address the issue of actually having a decent government. I know it might sound like daydreaming, but not having been involved in any revolutionary activities, I am not sure how to go about it.

The process of getting rid of those currently in power, where the Tower is utilized, certainly holds some appeal, but the Crown Jewels had better be taken away to a safe place first, if that pack of thieves and vagabonds are to be incarcerated there. Next, I would like to see a coalition government formed, made up of individuals with intelligence, integrity and bravery in equal measure. My ideal leaders would include the following, simply because I believe they possess these qualities: Ian Hislop, Jeremy Paxman, John Humphries, Jo Brand, Joanna Lumley and Anne Robinson. They could, if they deemed it necessary, enlist the aid of those politicians they believe to be honest and trustworthy, there are a few I believe.

So that is quite enough for one blog, I think. Should I not return to check on the progress of this revolutionary idea, then you better start baking cakes with files in, big metal files I mean, as I am more than likely to have been arrested and put in prison for daring to state what many people think. So come on bloggers, show your feelings on this most vital of issues and help us get some greatness back.


  1. I'm sorry to mention it, but 'Decent government' is one of those difficult things. Everyone knows what they mean by it, but when you actually try to work out what it means, you find the devil is in the detail.

    Most politicians, contrary to popular belief, don't go into politics for their own gain or glory. Most of them go in with the real, sincere intention of doing good. Only then do they begin to learn how hard that is to do, and what they have to compromise to do it.

    Evidence: when Tony Blair came to power, one of the first things on his agenda was a 'Freedom of Information Act'. That's the same act that has now been used to reveal how scummy those same politicians are. But if they'd always been that corrupt, surely they'd've put loopholes in the law such that it wouldn't catch them out. The fact that they didn't, suggests that the law itself was passed in good faith.

    So the only answer that makes sense is that these individuals have changed, since they were elected.

    Now: unless you can understand why that's happened, how can you hope to stop it from happening to any other government you put in to replace them?

  2. Somehow, and I've got no idea how, attitudes have to change. In my long rant to someone who made the mistake of calling my phone. http://projectsaviorreborn.blogspot.com/2009/05/explaining-economic-meltdown-to-my-bank.html
    I went off on some who worked for a bank viewing peoples deposits as "The Banks Money".
    The sad reality is a mindset has set in over the last 30 years that if people entrust a someone (Political or Financial) with their stuff, that person can use it as if it was their own.
    BTW: Thanks for letting me know what Patsy has been doing since AB FAB. I think she's a great actress and it's good to see that she is using her fame for a good cause.

  3. Vets is a wise man who speaks with the wisdom of knowledge and intellect, I know exactly what you mean, but I am very cross indeed (that's British understatement) at these shenanigans. Project Savior, thank you for commenting, and I agree with you regarding that destructive mindset. Cheers for taking the time.
