Euthanasia of government

"Euthanasia of government" would be achieved through "individual moral reformation". William Godwin.

This is my favourite phrase at the moment- Euthanasia of Government- why in Gods namely are we meekly sitting around allowing these cretins to steal our money, blindly believing that if they throw enough money at the problem it will go away.

The Political classes are in a blue funk, today is the thirtieth anniversary of the start of the Winter of Discontent that brought down Callaghan. Despite all of the propaganda of the intervening years, the anarchy was triggered by ordinary people taking a twenty per cent real cut in pay, whilst civil servants and Judges were getting 35% increases. The Unions were vilified then and vilified now, but the people who supported the Unions were not mindless morons, they could see that the over regulated , micro managing Party of the People had lost control and were just rewarding their own. They had no plan and no strategy.

The people of England in particular, rejected State Centralism and voted for a Radical program of Liberal Reform, it was bloody, it was divisive, but nobody wanted the return of State Centralism, whether it was run by the Unions, The Labour Party or the Butskillism of the Tories, nor do we want it now.

In Iceland yesterday the Riot Police were called to protect Parliament, the Political Classes are fearing the worst here as well. Mass unemployment is going to lead to social misery and discontent, Brown at PMQ’s yesterday just flapped around worshiping the God Obama in a blind panic, I watched the faces of those around him not Brown. Discomfort was writ large, they know that he has lost control, he had not even told Harman he was dropping the exemption from the FOI for MP’s expenses, such was his panic.

Lastly yesterday evening we had the unedifying sight of a Conservative MP cravenly handing over constituency correspondence to a policeman squatting in his office. He should hang his head in shame and resign. If they cannot defend their own Liberty from the State they cannot protect ours.

A Cromwell was the cry of the Revolutionaries as they swept towards the Bastille in 1789, we have to fight these tapsters and wastrels in a corrupt Parliament, and reduce their powers over us.

Obama quoted Tom Paine in his speech, let me give you another quote from Tom Paine-

....governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whatever form of government becomes destructive of these ends; it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.

I no longer consent to this Government, it was elected on a fraudulent electoral system that ensures minority rule of fanatics wedded to the power of the State. Parliament no longer represents or reflects the will of the people. To quote Cromwell- In the Name of God Go.

Until such time as we have a written constitution that guarantees our Liberties and an Electoral system that reflects the diversity of political thought in this country. I do not consent to be ruled by it.

Euthanasia of Government.Nice idea. Perhaps not quite impractical.Brown retreated rapidly when the internet spread news of his attempt to conceal MP's expenses.

Let's take it further, agitate for reduction in MP's allowances to fit the current economic circumstances, and censure of the loathsome Speaker, who with his cronies in all parties has tried to avoid reform.

The internet should make electronic voting and referenda relatively easy, and enable a move towards more direct democracy, with need for fewer politicians.

It should be possible to give the phrase 'we, the people' some political and legislative meaning.
