The majority of the electorate are, I believe, disillusioned and frustrated with politics in the United Kingdom; feel that change is needed but have no idea how to effect the change that they want and know must take place; and because they know not what – and how to accomplish – change, continue to occupy the same “ground” on which the political class stand.
At this juncture it is worth pointing readers to an article that has appeared by a Czech political scientist in Revue Politika (reprinted in Presseurope). In the article the comment is made that “outpourings” by those in the European Union on reminiscent of those of the Soviets. But the question then arises: is that not also true of our politicians? Do they not address us in their own language? Do they not so do in order to cement their own position in our society?
If we are so unhappy with the status quo why do we continue to listen to them, thus occupying their ground? Why do we not move off their ground and seek pastures new? One has only to look at the picture above to realise that if those remaining followed the first – who has decided enough is enough of this crap – what happens to the politician addressing them? He/she has disappeared into the abyss of oblivion!
If we, the people, are frustrated with the “ground” we are forced to occupy by our political elite and wish to seek “pastures new”, then should not we be those who decide exactly what those “pasture new” should be? That is the beauty of this idea.
It is your life, people – it is your country. Remember that – or do you wish to be slaves for that which remains of your life?
