Democracy at work ?

Have your say

UK governments “interfere” in Middle East countries then disown local interpreters and their families leaving them at the mercy of the barbarians.

UK government MPs are caught committing fraud, but only a token few prosecuted to placate the masses.

UK government MPs involved in child sex abuse covered up for years by “the system”, then a few dragged ducking and diving all the way to a token prosecution.

MPs who are regularly absent from Parliament always seemto be “caught” by the press photographers for the token attendance at wringing-of-hands ceremonies.

These same people still wish to be known as The right honourable or His Lordship or Her Ladyship and moan that people no longer cast their votes.

I can’t really understand it, can you?

Just an afterthought, we send more than £15 billion pounds annually to support struggling third world countries but we have food banks, soup kitchens and a very recent appeal for charitable donations for one of our own children who desperately needs an up-to-date wheelchair.

You couldn’t make it up really.
