Not everyone's cup of tea, and, arguably, not a great topic for tea parties - a lot of us love nothing more than a good political debate. So if you want to put the world to rights, or simply air your political beliefs, broadcast them here!
To me, it is obvious that the present established structure and crude segregation of our politics are inept in managing our country and our national affairs. BUT. What should a new structure look like? Russian style? American style? Maybe just one super person? or maybe a British people generated model that is uniquely for us?
There are more options that have sprung up since Brexit has breached every traditional perception of trust in the old elected style of MP's and political parties. In my view, none are trustworthy and capable of honest and reliable management of our nation. To me we the people must create what is needed for today's living in the world as it is today and overturn the centuries-old model that is now destructively defunct.
Let's get the ball rolling and air our visions and ideas about what has then the greatest domestic impact on our lives. Have your say and have your thoughts put into action. Maybe it is us, the silver Elders who have the best practical wisdom to retake the traditional role of elders that have been stripped away by the less experienced.
What should we do?
Few can have failed to hear of the political turmoil in Westminster in the year or so - parties both decided and undecided which way to vote, MPs clearly shouting and voting against the public's wishes declared at the referendum. In subsequent opinion polls as many as 74% of people polled go with Brexit; last week, I think, almost as many wanted to exit the EU without a trade deal. The public's requirement of their politicians and lawmakers is unmistakeable. Brexit. Yet so many are fighting the will of this nation's people. How do we react to being largely ignored by the ruling elite in the Westminster bubble? Does anyone have any confidence in these people? Should our politicians so publicly ignore the will of the people, sometimes to their own benefit?
I am fed up with the very mention of this subject. Nicola S________ is a total pest I can't spell nucance. She does not give a toss about government only her one track subject. My wife is English and worries sometimes about our hard-line element, o' to get back to a normal politic life as before.
Our MP's are so arrogant that they feel we the people of the UK yes Scotland as well , haven't got the brain capacity to vote for what we the people believe and want. Democracy is dead in Britain if these idiots get there way. My question to people is that any MP that votes against us leaving the EU should not be vote back in to there constituencies as they would be defying the will of democracy within Great Britain Shame on them!
What has changed since The Roman Empire? It was easily one of the most debauched, murderous and sexually abusive political structures, which then collapsed. Same thing today, different actors. Whether in America, United Kingdom, Russia, China or any other country: there is a similar pattern. It is as if this type of behaviour is expected of them. Scandalous behaviour of the so called Elite is rife. How many Cocaine induced decisions are made on the public's behalf? Power is supposedly an aphrodisiac, and having the power to do or buy what you want at will, only serves to feed the beast. It was always so and will always be. We are eons away from expecting anything other than the status quo. Trumps remarks dredged up from the past are in the spotlight. It is clear he thinks with his "other" brain. Hillary Clinton is a nightmare, cleverer at keeping dirty secrets than Donald. Her crimes are far worse than any off the cuff sexual remark. She manages to bury her and her husband Bill's heinous crimes where they may never see the light of day. Neither of them is fit for Office in my view, betting aside, she will win. She has had so much more experience and time to surround herself with corrupt paid off lackeys in well placed organisations such as the media. Donald, in spite of his lecherous remarks has a sort of sincerity about him (do not mention the tax avoidance and bankruptcies). In my view, such as it is, we are engaging in too much hand wringing, and missing the big picture. I challenge any person who says they have never made a derogatory remark about a person of the opposite sex. There may be one or two out there. Remarks usually off the cuff, meant sometimes in a humorous way, but sometimes in a more sinister way. I suspect nearly all of us are guilty.
A video of Trump in 2005 has just been released where he is being rude and offensive about women. If it was the UK he would have gone by now. Should he quit or should the Republican party fire him I womder? What do all the Silversurfers say?
