Politi­cians de­cid­ing ev­ery­thing for us

Gloucestershire Echo - - LETTERS & OPINION -

✒ DOESN’T mod­ern democ­racy stink and where in re­al­ity democ­racy for the peo­ple just does not re­ally ex­ist any­more.

In this re­spect an­other pointer of the demise in the purest sense of the con­cept and sys­tem of democ­racy for the peo­ple, by the peo­ple and for the peo­ple, is in ac­tu­al­ity no more.

Be­fore the next Con­ser­va­tive leader is voted for by the party mem­ber­ship, our il­lus­tri­ous Tory MPS are given the power to whit­tle the vot­ing num­bers down to just two.

We all re­mem­ber well how 75 per cent of MPS voted to re­main in the EU and not to un­der­take the wishes of the ma­jor­ity of UK vot­ers to leave the EU af­ter the 2016 ref­er­en­dum.

There­fore it is not the peo­ple any­more who are de­ter­min­ing how democ­racy should be.

The po­lit­i­cal par­ties who de­cide be­fore­hand who they want and what they want and where the peo­ple are sim­ply be­ing used in all re­al­ity, as can­non fod­der for them to get ex­actly what they ac­tu­ally want and when.

In other words our politi­cians stitch us up all the way through from start to fin­ish un­der the guise of what we call democ­racy and where in re­al­ity it is sim­ply a mi­rage of what the ac­tual case is.

The ques­tion is, why do we vote for politi­cians un­der this pre-se­lec­tion and dic­ta­to­rial sys­tem of democ­racy in its to­tally un-purest sense, as it just does not make any sense to do so if we use our in­tel­li­gence?

But again, our so-called peo­ple’s politi­cians like it that way I sup­pose. Dr David Hill
