Despite the fact that the UK has separate Scottish, Welsh and potential Northern Ireland assemblies to 'run' these outposts, the number of MPs at Parliament has NOT reduced. We need 12 'good men and true' only to run the country though I am happy for this number to include a token woman or two. Seriously though, whilst the present shambles (of any colour - red, blue, yellow or green) persists in furthering their own nests at the expense of the populace, NONE of them deserves my vote. Sadly the lunatics have finally taken over the UK asylum. Or are we the lunatics for letting them get away with it? What we need is a good old revolution!written 22nd Apr 2005
Ant replies: There is no longer any prospect of violent revolution, the military and policing force of the state is grossly disproportionate to it's people in the modern age.
Besides, the citizens aren't even allowed to own weapons in our country ^^
The alternative is a peaceful revolution, but I don't see any prospect of that happening either.
It's too late now to do anything about it, we allowed it to get this far. Past the event horizon, if you will. There is no turning back to true freedom and democracy now.
