Britain is a dictatorship
Wednesday, 27 May 2009 09:32

Like it or not, Britain in 2009 is a dictatorship hidden by a thin veneer or respectability that we call parliament.

MPs are elected from constituencies, but have little or no real power. MPs are bound by party loyalty first and conscience, common sense and morality comes nowhere, if you want proof of that just look at the Gurkha fiasco. Despite intense pressure the government put forward rules that would allow about a hundred Gurkhas to settle in the UK, only to be defeated by a commons vote. What is surprising is that there was a vote at all.

In 12 years this is the first defeat for the government. If the parliamentary system was working correctly they would be getting defeated on a regular basis. Instead they brow beat and coerce MPs into doing what they are told, with the threat of withdrawal of the whip which means they could not stand at the next election.

In the last 12 years Labour has systematically destroyed trust between government and electors, we are angry, VERY angry, but we the people have no power. What can we do?

There are only two ways to get a general election in the UK, one if for the prime minister to ask for it, the other is when the 5 year time limit on a parliament runs out.

There is no way for the people to demand an election.

Look what this labour government has done in terms of surveillance of the public, micro-mangment of schools, health and safety, roads, the health service and the police.

Look at the abuse of power by police and petty officials all over the country. As David Carmeron said . . .

'We are picked on and poked and bossed around, annoyed and irritated and endlessly harassed by public and private sector officialdom that treats us like children'

Does that sound familiar?

How were you treated last time you passed through an airport?

Do you realise that you are photographed at least 300 times a day, busses have as many as 12 cameras watching your every move, your car journeys are recorded, your phone calls and texts are monitored.

In his novel 1984, George Orwell's Winston Smith explained things very clearly . . .

'It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away . . . . In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable offence. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime, it was called.'

This has all been brought about by Labour, supposedly the party of the people. In reality they are interested in only one thing, power! The power to direct the lives of ordinary people whilst retaining priviledge to themselves.

Example: You and I pay taxes - the chancellor Alistair Darling claims expenses for his tax return being prepared and didn't pay the tax he should have paid. One rule for the people, one for the party members.

Wake up Britain!
