I don’t know about you but…

Here’s a single voice speaking up against government repression – not on any single subject, just to say that no government has any reason to believe it should be able to silence dissent; that people speak up for a reason, and that their opinions are to be valued and taken seriously, not ignored or repressed. That’s one person. Are YOU speaking up in the same way?
If not, why not?

    you have every right to feel angry David Cameron got so called elected on false promises he stood up with nick cl egg and Gordon brown and told lies but like a good politician was convincing at the time

    They all spoke in a convincing manor but it was all lies and deception that is not a democracy and like we have just seen Egypt the Conservatives should be thrown out of power for cheating the public

    I believe that Egypt will lead the way in democracy for the future in that if you come to power on false promises you will be kicked out after one year it’s really that simple

    The situation in Egypt is being portrayed as a military coup rather than the army backing up it’s concerned citizens, especially if you read Sky News reporting.

    Unfortunately Maggie and co did such a good job in dividing this country that her heirs and sycophants have no trouble carrying on the tradition.

    Home owning,, debt ridden “working middle classes” fear more about their “status” than they do about their fellow man. The latest Ipad or 52″ tv is vastly more important than any welfare service or NHS.

    Being so heavily in debt chasing the ” social mobility (snobbery)” ideal they fear higher taxes or mortgage interest rises and will do all they can, including slavery and mass poverty, to protect their lifestyle.

    As with all important matters poverty and slavery are the new “Conspiracy theory” spouted by nutters and dropouts of society.
    Until the current economic crisis affects the middle classes to the same degree it did in Greece and the Arab countries nothing will change. Unfortunately the Tories have played a blinder by practically ignoring them with cuts and instead have hit the poorest only.

    The younger generations will rise up especially in the North African countries and bring those that have abused their power through getting into power in the first place by deception the misleading of the public into voting for them at a general election and failing to deliver on any of what was being discussed on live TV and get them arrested

    All countries should have a police state to protect those that slip through the net to their death. If we in the uk had a police state as back up David Cameron would not have gone before the electorate at all in the first place because he would have known that his deception would have been rumbled

    The NHS is in grave danger of collapsing by sheer mismanagement by the government and as we have seen during the welfare reform, bill / bedroom tax bill people are dying as a result

    The main trouble with British politics is that it is the most floored of political systems as it is a very corrupt place to be and it’s very off putting for a honest and genuine person to go into politics as throughout history all of those that have been decent have failed to get selected as the prime minister

    Only those with an Eaton/Oxford/ education seem to get that perk and are invariably wealthy. This is not my idea of a democracy and never has been

    Democracy needs to be redefined so that it is only valid for those who are genuinely sincere and honest and that you be forcibly by the police be removed from office once you have been found out as being dishonest or corrupt or not working in your peoples best interest

      Thanks, but I have no intention of living in any more of a police state than we have already. How do you think democracy can be defined in order to keep out the insincere and dishonest? You can’t. You’d probably only make matters worse.

      The situation now relies on people being thrown out if they are found to be dishonest or corrupt or not working in the people’s best interest. Unfortunately it seems that it all falls down if those who are supposed to enforce that system don’t think it’s in their best interest to do so.

      Or at least, that’s how it seems to me.

        we need to move towards a democracy in which the public choose not only the political party but also the leader as the leader is the main focus and getting it wrong keeps the country well behind especially for the younger generation and the lack of affordable housing what a tragedy in that the uk can’t even house all it’s people in decent affordable accommodation. Just getting this wrong on it’s own undermines the whole country and the way it thinks and behaves towards others

        When you speak mike you need to voice for all on the key topics so that the listener is fully engaged with what your saying and can tell straight off that you mean it

          I do mean what I say, but I can only give my own opinion. I have no intention of speaking for anyone else (at least, not on this blog). If something I write gains popularity, then I know I’m on the right track, but I won’t claim popular support where it’s not known or deserved – that’s what the charlatans do.

    I’m a excellent speaker mike I’m just saying and i did not mean you that when i stand up i speak and you know that I’m the real deal as my voice matches my facial expression you can tell straight away and without looking at any notes that i spoke for all from the heart

    That’s why i have mostly always had holidays in north Africa and Egypt as I’m well respected and rightly so by the locals
