We had our Berlin Wall Moment- But That Opportunity Is Now Fading
An independent commission should look at ideas such as moving the seat of democracy out of Westminster, a fully elected upper chamber with no whipping system, proportional representation, cutting the number of MPs by half, and reforming their pay and expenses, he added.
"It's time to be radical. Our current model was designed for the 18th Century. It doesn't fit 21st Century Britain,"
This is the confirmation that the BBC is firmly under Government control.
The palpable anger over the troughing is going to fade and the only action the people of this country can take, is to replace this Rotten Parliament with another headed up by the Tories.
The Libertarian Party would be far more radical than Dyke, no more than 150 MP's in Westminster charged with Defence of the Realm and Foreign affairs. The Social Service functions of MP's can be put back to the County Councils were they belong, and local taxpayers decide how many people in their communities they are prepared to support.
Fact- Benefits paid out in a year exceeds the amount raised in PAYE
The former French Prime Minister, Dominique De Villepin is going on trial today charged with trying to discredit Sarkozy.
Why in God's name have we not got the same sort of legal remedy against Blair for starting illegal wars and devasting our economy. Impeachment last used against Warren Hastings is still on the statute books !
At this moment in time we are faced with the following nightmare situation- The Irish finally say YES to the EU Constitution, Blair becomes President of the EU,Mandelson holds the Labour Party together through the Party Conferences, Brown announces his decision to stand down as leader on health grounds January/February. Election called May- IMF arrive June 2010. Somewhere in that lot Balls and Milliband slug it out for Labour leadership
Currently the opposition are failing to oppose, the call for 'savage cuts' is not real. The reduction of the State will be at the behest of the IMF, because the political classes are incapable of killing the Golden Goose, and we are too supine to make it happen as the Berliners did in 1989.
