Let us imagine...

My voice. Hear it

Well, it's been five long years, and pretty soon, you're going to tick a box. Once.

And in another five years, you're going to tick a box again.

And that's it. That's as much democracy as you are allowed.

Now we know from both the Conservative and Labour Manisfestos that they lie and will not be held to them and there's absolutely nothing you can do about it. So shut the fuck up and take it.

We also know that Labour rule us all with a rod of iron when only 9 million voted for them last time around. The majority who didn't get one chance every five years to change it. And vote for a different colour of liar who will tell them to shut up for five years whilst happily ignoring what they said they'd do in favour of what will make them personally rich (whilst passing 26,000 new laws you never asked for).

Take just five minutes and think of all the times you've shouted at the radio, thrown housebricks at the tellybox (twice in my household) and slammed the house door on your way to work after listening to John Humphries allow some oily Party shite to wriggle his way out of a simple question on the Today programme.

How many times do you sit and watch Question Time or Prime Ministers Questions and shake your head in disbelief?

How many laws have you watched a few hundred agenda driven people introduce without your consent?

How many times a day are those laws affecting everything you do, say, earn, spend, think?

A few hundred people are controlling every single aspect of your life. Day in, day out. For the next five years. If they pass a law requiring you to put both feet in a bucket of water before you leave the house, tough, Mr Squelchy feet, get moving, you'll be late. And before you laugh, millions of us are forced to stand in the rain outside a pub, in one of the coldest winters ever, because a few hundred people who don't smoke said we have to. And we do it. And if we don't, we go to prison. No, really.

I've long been a fan of Swiss Democracy. Apart from the fact they are the healthiest, richest, happiest, most educated and democratic people in Europe, a few hundred people in Parliament could not tell them that they had to accept minarets in their towns and cities. They decided they liked cuckoo clocks and chocolate, thank you very much. So cuckoo clocks and chocolate it is then. Not the vested interests of a few politicians who for whatever reason thought they could sell the whole of Switzerland in return for a few votes. And they can do that because they have to hold referendums on serious shit. They HAVE TO. It is not up to a few elected, vested interest droids. It's up to the people. The people who have to live with it.

No wonder they want fuck all to do with the EU.

Five years is a long time. Think carefully. Sign on the dotted line and they can do whatever they please. In your name.

I want my voice heard every day, hence this blog. Now I want YOUR voice heard. Hence me running for Parliament.

Direct Democracy. Your voice, in your parliament, in your country. About bastard time. Stop imagining. Take control of your life every day, not just once every five years. You owe it to your parents and to your children.

If you don't, Margaret Moran will happily run your life for you.

PS. It's a Jury Team Policy. Funnily enough

All your points are valid, OH.
What WILL put off a lot of people from your message is the fucking & blinding every few words!
Yes - I know that politicians make politically aware people say "fuck" & "cunt", ( a LOT),but many people ARE offended by bad language.
I love your blog; I'm OK with bad language, but my wife would not read it, simply because of the language used.
Your electorate in Cambridge will have many who think like she does.

The British suffer from being culturally enamoured with class and social rank, getting misty eyed over the aristocracy and feudal past, which Parliament is a modern continuation of.

The peasantry are too accustomed to be shafted by their betters and doffing their caps in thanks, while other nations won't stand for this stupidity, the British take pride in being shat on from a great height, and adopt it as a national trait, in schools, employment and politics. Even in Napoleonic Europe the citizens have enough self esteem to give the finger to the rulers once in a while. The British can't bring themselves to upset the system, which is why politicians will always get away with whatever they like.

Marcellus said...

OH

I agree with you about the Swiss.

Our own immediate problem is the monoculture monopoly of the MSM brainwashing 90% of the electorate.

The MSM allowed all this to happen.

Broadcast news is the key. The people who run it are not elected. We have no control over them at all. WHY NOT????????

Broadcast news must be liberated from the monoculture. If it cannot be liberated, it must be resisted.

That's what I'm talking about. Bring it on, Holby.

Got something for you. Tuesday.

OH
Publish your office address please. I want to send a cheque (don't like Paypal on some vague principle). Or just email me your address (in total confidence). I'm off to the fish farm on 10th April.

Joe Public said...

Holby, you've missed the reason the Swiss are probably the happiest people.....

The personal weapon of militia is kept at home as part of the military obligations. Switzerland has one of the highest militia gun ownership rates in the world. WikiP

And their politicians know it.

how can something so beautiful have such an ugly price? how can africa be a man and a woman at the same time? will the world's most powerful go-between be conveniently martyred into an historic black icon by a white supremacist? or will his name be darkened from the civil-rights billboard by his african constituency first? israel-palestine is regrettably an horrific sideshow - it's not a choice between siding with israel or palestine, it's a choice between siding with gangsters or africa. the clock has stopped, sir - time to make your mark.

Before we embark upon the swiss route to all things pleasant I think it is worth considering some more fundamental aspects .the promise of reerenda led democracy is that in the end it delivers what ever the people vote upon , however are there some things that you would never allow a vote on OH . eg holding office for life ? .

As for the argument we have been sheep for far too long , harking back to the educated class running all societys across the world ,I am a little wary of some seeing having uneducated people holding office as somehow better .

Reprenstation via free and fair election is still important , I mean if we make choices what does a government do when elected , just rubber stamp referenda ??.

With you 100%, Holby.

I'll campaign for you on my blog, and you're welcome to guest-post, anytime (not that I get that much traffic) - but it doesn't take much to make a difference.

Guy Fawkes is going to try and get into the 'Houses of Parliament'' again this year.

However, in the present day, this outcast, this rebel, this most despised man goes by the name of.....

Nick Griffin.

If he wasn't for real, they wouldn't despise him as much as they do.

Catflap said...

OT:
The greatest scalp I ever had was this leftwing fucknut head of year teacher,who now, thanks to me, is stacking shelves in 'Focus'.
My deepthroat has given me another story concerning the nest of leftwing vipers who run this high school near to me.
I've just sent an email to my 'contact' at the Grimsby Telegraph who ran the 'Craig Samms'story and I hope he will run with this as well.
No sex this time but plenty of financial incompetence and a mini riot where windows were broke and the Staff lost control of the school completely.
The leftie cunt at the top of this mess is one of those'super heads'in charge of Two schools.
What a fucking scalp he would be.
Local politics is fun,don't miss out,get stuck in.

No doubt the self-absorbed pedants will be picking holes in your plan (maybe already, can't be fucked to read all the comments), or perhaps the Peoples Front of Judea will be along to demand a rewording of some committee minutes...

Fuck it. Go for it. It is staggering how divorced we are from the original principles of democracy.

The very best of luck OH.

Two minor points:-

If you hold a rally & hundreds of like-dressed clones are there, how do we know which is you?

If someone dressed as you holds a different rally, will the audience realise?

Lots of Swiss have weapons at home. True. However, holding ammunition is illegal. You can collect that from the nice Sergeant when you turn up at the barracks.

What the Swiss don't have is a professional political class unlike the UK. Politicians in Switzerland come from the community.

Lets not forget though that Switzerland was born out of violent revolution, not a tick in a box.


Though if it'll get me a Sig 550, I'll tick anything...

Not true. You are issued 50 rounds in a sealed tin so you can fight your way to the barracks to get more. You can also buy ammunition from gunshops and the government will subsidise it if its in a military calibre.

----------------------------------

Ditto Norway, where I now happily live.

Here, every Government is a coalition, due to the plethora of basically minority political parties.

No bad thing - means that while really big issues often never get properly addressed, legislation that IS passed is a compromise, and therefore "mostly harmless".

p.s. - and Crime using legally held firearms is essentially zero ! ...

JerryD said...

Come on OH - don't you see the double standard here? How can you stand to be a member of a parliament of pigs AND wear a Guy Fawkes Mask?

If you wear a Guy Fawkes Mask to blow up parliament, or at least destroy it, then OK - we can deal with that. We know what your honest intentions are.

If you wear a Guy Fawkes Mask because of V for Vendetta, then you must know that Alan Moore, who created the original comic, is an ardent anarchist and would be horrified to see his design on your face...

If you want to became an MP, then might I suggest you wear a suit and tie like every other borg – but if this is just a publicity stunt then fine, milk it baby. But you actually appear to believe in the Jury Team.

Don’t you realise that the UK Parliament needs to be removed, not endorsed?

You cannot kick the whores from the whore house by becoming a patron (Apologies to whores everywhere!).

Rogerborg said...

Tick a box? I'll be wiping my arse with my postal ballot. I may leave some hanging chads on it.

Dazed And Confused said...

@Jerry D:

"You cannot kick the whores from the whore house by becoming a patron"

Fail.

If you really believe that line, then perhaps you should Watch This As that's precisely the way another grouping that doesn't believe in democracy of any sort are currently going about things.

The swiss are miserable bastards. They aren't happy at all.

'Don’t you realise that the UK Parliament needs to be removed, not endorsed?'
Absolutely opposition needs to be formed against the whole corrupt political system not the government.

Old Holborn, I thought you were a rebel not a lapdog.

Baldermort banking and financial services easing your problems whilst taking your money, in no way associated with Baldermort used car sales that has been exposed in the media as a ponzi scheme.CW thought all very reassuring on QT , our cuts will be different to tory cuts ? I liked the one about "as the economy improves and there are more jobs we will have the VAT reciepts to erm make the cuts"

As was the rather obvious all parties have got 25% cuts lines up (more that Lady Thatcher) CW was somewhat surprised no one picked up on Baldermorts gaffe in that he would be making people unemployed as people became employed , sort of stablising the 2.5mn out of work until the defiect was halved .Of course he spluterd there is the risk of interest rates (with totally honest bank manager type face) .So can we assume then that if interest rates rise the cuts will be more than 25% ? . CW was slightly amused Alec salmond found trident interesting , no votes in Fastlane then ! or just another chucking money away politician on break up ideas . Greece has got a £20bn euro bailout and the Ontario pension fund is going to benefit from UK gambling/gaming by buying Camelot (why isnt It being sold to national savings?) Still another one to add to the ruins long list of sending our wealth overseas .

As for making ones mark do you not think my hands are a little tied as I value loyality ,besides no one seems to be running with my energy ideas or eco thinking, as it will upset the markets despite it curing a number of problems .

If the election produces somthing gutless then the gutless will run it , so I might as well do somthing else of value as it wont be listened to.

Just waiting for the ruin to call it I suspect his own polling is reading like the labour party sucide memorial despite Bob Crowe having yet another pointless strike , nothing to do with jarvis going into administration then!

CW noted that the ruin looked particulary mental this wednesday , at least the lies are beggining to tell . Third time for the third way shsyters ,i would call that proof of wonkness and unsuitability .

Now wheres my kevalr helmet , the documents on the gold sell off must be on there way !

Excellent description of our existing "democracy" OH. We are meant to be grateful for this five year box ticking and then not object to being ignored for the next five years.

Old Holborn said...

Oh that we were ignored for 5 years, anon. I'd be happy with that.

But we aren't are we? They just wont leave us alone.

Because we're young said...

Spot on OH, as a 4-year resident of Switzerland (in Geneva), the political system works extremely well and voter turnout even for relatively banal issues is impressive

For things people really care about like the smoking ban (passed) and the minaret issue (banned) voter turnout was very high. So I feel the smoking ban in restaurants and bars is at least representative of a decent amount of people. Also bear in mind the smoking ban was Canton by Canton, so local democracy at its finest.

Really makes the UK system look shit. No troughing politicians, no interfering nanny state, and indeed there are a lot of weapons, you often see chaps off to do their mandatory annual day of shooting practice, carrying large rifles about.

The Penguin said...

Once you're on the inside, OH, do you suppose there'll be the odd occasions where you could trip some greasy cunt at the top of the stairs - accidentally, of course? Or when one of the troughers is having a nice smoke on the Terrace after a few subsidised gin and tonics, help sober them up by tipping them into the Thames? Sort of opportunist Direct Action?
