Here we go again – more empty promises

Ed Miliband has been speaking to Labour activists in Corby, an event ‘trumpeted’ by LabourList.

One has to ask three questions:

  • How will he achieve this as he is not in government
  • How much will his ‘plans’ actually cost
  • Why did he not do that which he is promising while in government

With this speech  Miliband provides three reasons which  highlight what exactly is wrong with our present system of democracy, although without doubt the electorate of Corby will not realize this when the time comes to cast their votes.

The Labour candidate, Andy Sawford, will not represent the people of Corby in Parliament if he is elected, he will represent the Labour Party in Corby – and the same can be said for which ever candidate is successful, although without doubt the electorate of Corby will not realize this when the time comes to cast their votes.

When informing his activists of the future it will not have escaped reader’s attention that Miliband’s theme is ‘We’; we will do this, we will do that – and the same can be said for any other political party, although without doubt the electorate of Corby will not realize this when the time comes to cast their votes.

More importantly, Miliband wishes to continue the practice of asking the electorate for a blank cheque in order to fund his plans for the future of our country which includes  the imposition of whatever societal changes he wishes to implement – and the same can be said for any other political party,  although without doubt the electorate of Corby will not realize this when the time comes to cast their votes.

 Without the aid of politicians – their manifestos filled with societal skulduggery and theoretical 5-year plans – it would seem that the world’s energy problems could well have been solved – not through nuclear, solar or tidal power, nor even through bio-fuels that create less energy than they use.  It has been solved by human ingenuity and technology. In other words, it has been solved by the people and it can therefore be said that people make a country what it is, not politicians.

In which case, should not we, the people, govern ourselves?
