Democracy is broken

Democracy is broken – of that there is no doubt.

Modern politics is about the HAVEs and the HAVE NOTs about power vs. vulnerability.

The politics of lying is the norm made possible by the likes of Thatcher and Blair who took on a nation’s trust and hopes and drank them up for their own personal gain and power.

Scotland’s electorate can stand proud because 84% of them showed what democratic citizenship is all about.

They exercised choice although influenced by uncertainty and unknown outcomes.

The May 2015 election is now beginning but we will not have that turnout – we must remove coalition as a form of political governance as it does not work and bring back social democracy but based on sound values and promises that are lived up to.  Not sure any of the present parties offer that.

We need the optimism of 1997 but this time the honesty to deliver on promises with integrity – pigs are flying by my window as I write this but I live in hope
