I never have had much time for politics or politicians.
It is my belief that there is no discernible difference between any of the main parties any more, in fact, it appears that the only way to tell the difference between them is the colour of their ties.
However, I am very much aware that the 2015 General Election is going to be the most dirty and underhanded political campaign for decades, as the main players are crapping themselves that the voting British Public may have finally woken up.
(The smear campaigns already in full swing by the main parties, assisted by the mainstream media, coupled with the constant accusations of the ever-popular ‘Racism’ may give a clue to what is coming.)
Left and Right Wing politicians do not even exist anymore, and have been replaced by a gaggle of chattering corporate mouthpieces, fighting each other over occupancy of the middle ground, and becoming increasingly desperate to cling on to what little credibility they once had.
Very, very few politicians actually have the slightest idea about what the majority of this nation want from those, who, after all, only hold the position they do because they were chosen by the electorate.
That is the reason that anyone chooses to vote at all isn’t it?
To elect people that will represent them, to listen to them, and at least make an visible attempt to address the issues their constituents raise.
In 2015, however, there may an even more worrying reason why the main parties are in a state of panic.
Whether you acknowledge it or not, Nigel Farage and the UK Independence Party have been causing a lot more than a ripple, and that in turn, has been felt throughout the country and has really put the proverbial cat amongst the parliamentary Pigeons.
I have no feelings either way for Farage and UKIP, although I believe his stance on leaving the European Commission should be supported, his admiration of Margaret Thatcher, his open support of both Fracking and Nuclear Energy, however, will be his Achilles Heel and there is no getting away from that, as I see it.
UKIP are, on paper at least, streets ahead in the upcoming European elections, and whether that momentum can be carried over to the General Election is still to be seen; but as a party, they have certainly struck a chord among the grassroots electorate, and the main parties would be foolish beyond belief to ignore that.
As it stands, the political classes of the Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats seem to be in total disarray, which should not come as a surprise considering that Farage is speaking the same language, and giving a voice to the very real concerns of ordinary people and not the political elite.
On the surface at least.
He is also unusual in that he has had a proper job in the real world… He has worked for a living, albeit as a Banker.
Comparing him to the other party leaders, it’s easy to see the difference.
David Cameron, talks tough on resisting European interference – but that is all it is, because as soon as German chancellor Angela Merkel speaks, Tory posh boy Cameron, immediately falls into line.
He also talks about holding a Referendum on withdrawal from Europe only if he and the Conservatives are returned to power in 2015 – that is way too many if’s for me, and others may agree.
If the truth is told, he does not even want a referendum, it’s the increasing support for Farage and UKIP that has forced his hand.
He seems content to play the role of the Gym Boxer, pretty sharp while performing in front of the mirror, but positively useless and vunerable when he actually has to step in the ring.
The Labour leader Ed Miliband is no better, has he actually got anything right?
He is a chancer and just another privileged mouthpiece, who has zero experience of living and working in the real world.
Admittedly he did go to a state school, but it was a posh one which ensured he went straight to University and then into politics with a safe seat in the House of Commons.
A good pension at the end of it too – not bad for somebody who has never held a proper job!
He is the ‘leader’ of a party who once represented the ordinary working people of this country, but that party now is so conceited, that it believes that the people who pay their wages should not even be trusted to vote!
That brings us onto Nick Clegg, the stand-in that David Cameron needs as an excuse when he fails to deliver on any of his pre-election pledges (which were lies anyway).
Mr. Clegg is another one who has never worked in the real world.
He sold the students down the river over top-up fees, and like the other party leaders, continually denies any knowledge concerning allegations of Paedophilia among the ex-grandees within his own party.
Sir Cyril Smith anyone?
I don’t remember the Labour Party ever commenting on LABOUR25 either, while the Tories also remain damnably tight-lipped about the alleged Paedophiles within their Membership too.
Would I vote for any of the main parties?
Certainly not, and I would not vote for Farage and UKIP.
I would not cast my vote for the BNP or the BRITAIN FIRST brigade either, as any party that perpetuates the Lee Rigby false flag, and uses an image of Winston Churchill as something to aspire too, is anathema to anyone even slightly educated or a student of real British/English history.
I will be voting though, but for the only candidate who has shown a visible presence in the place I live, and has at least attempted to answer my many questions and offers something new and different.
If more people did the same, the big parties, who have made a complete balls-up thus far, would really have to up their game and start to realise that Britain is not in fact, populated by hordes of Brain-dead zombies who will put up with anything without a murmur of complaint.
People who are no longer prepared to vote the same way as their parents out of loyalty, and who clearly show that they are sickened by the complacency and utter contempt that has been shown to them by those who should be acting on their behalf.
A nation of people that will no longer accept the common-purpose puppets that are continually rolled out when needed, mouthing empty words and who continually betray and try to sell out both this country and it’s people to the highest bidder.
I fully expect to be in the minority, but my conscience will be clear at least.
