It warms the very cockles of my cold, icy heart to note that SIX million of us are not even bothered enough to register to vote, a huge 1/5th of us are so disenfranchised with what the Political elite have to offer, we prefer not to bother to even attempt to play the game in which at the first sight of losing, our opponents can change the rules in their favour.
Slowly, but surely, we are turning our backs on a system that has done nothing except enrich those already in power or privilege. Tired of endless promises on the best way to spend our money, extracted by force, we are doing what every Politician most fears. Declaring them irrelevant after decades of minority rule, unenforced manifesto promises, thrown to the wind upon election, ignored pleas for referendums whilst gratuitously lining their pockets with the profits of lobbyists, big business and unions.
Good luck to them, I say. Carry on your pontificating and legislating because the more of us that choose to ignore you, the more grains of sand are slipping through your fingers. If "austerity" is teaching us anything, it is teaching us how to live without you and soon enough, you will be as relevant to our lives as we are to yours.
You're welcome. More please
