The Political Kipper Season has now arrived for the British Press.
Yes it’s Election time.
So don’t expect to read much more than what various politicians are trading as insults, one to the other, for the next four weeks.
Yet what’s the point in voting when
We Have No Say in Many of the Decisions Which Effect Our Lives?
So here are six reasons why I don’t vote, have never voted, and will never vote in any government or local government election: –
– The unelected House of Lords.
– The City of London Corperation, or last rotten borough.
This is where any company which operates in the city can get to vote, and vote again.
– The unelected and overpriced monarchy.
– The Greater London Council which was aboblished in 1986.
To misquote the old saying:-
When voting changed the system, then the System was Aboblished.
– The various unaccountable multinations,
such as the banks, and mining companies.
– How we now have no say as to just where nukiller waste will be dumped.
To quote Pierre-Joseph Proudhon: –
‘To be governed is to be watched over, inspected, spied on, directed, legislated at, regulated, docketed, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, assessed, weighed, censored, ordered about, by men who have neither the right, nor the knowledge, nor the virtue.
… To be governed is to be at every operation, at every transaction, noted, registered, enrolled, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under the pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, trained, ransomed, exploited, monopolized, extorted, squeezed, mystified, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, despised, harassed, tracked, abused, clubbed, disarmed, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and, to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, outraged, dishonoured.
That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality.’
