Re: “Char­ter re­write vote de­lay,” (BP, Sept 25).

Given the ab­surdly high salaries we are pay­ing our “rep­re­sen­ta­tives” and their aides, one would think they could at least fake rep­re­sent­ing the peo­ple, but ap­par­ently not, as they slink out the back of par­lia­ment to avoid the peo­ple and head to their man­sions af­ter ba­si­cally fail­ing to do any­thing about a char­ter re­write.

It seems clear to me that par­lia­ment has no in­ten­tion of mak­ing any changes to the con­sti­tu­tion that will even come close to sat­is­fy­ing the peo­ple, but I sus­pect they will go on drag­ging this out for as long as pos­si­ble, so they can go on liv­ing the good life on the tax­payer’s money.

I don’t know how long this govern­ment can go on dol­ing out minis­cule amounts to the mil­lions of poor to keep them from re­volt­ing while they col­lect big salaries for ba­si­cally do­ing noth­ing but I imag­ine the money will run out one of these days and the stu­dents will be less than pleased to find they are heav­ily in­debted for the rest of their lives be­cause of this big noth­ing that they are now be­ing forced to pay ev­ery day now.
