Liberals, socialists, conservatives… you MPs call yourself whatever you want. Your ideas do nothing for anyone other than yourselves whilst you masquerade as public representatives who give a shit

One of the most startling things that the chaos our MPs causing has brought to light, is not the difference between our elected politicians. It is the utterly wrong way in which they increasingly all look exactly the same.

The rights, wrongs and merits of all the political philosophies is a debate that is blind alley for anyone seeking the best ways to help others – except those who have an interest in finding excuses not to get along.

In any normal part of life behaviour of this kind would be bad enough. But for it to be the de facto approach of all sides in politics today tells us just how badly things have really gone wrong.

The people we have elected to represent us and our best interests hide behind ideas such as Marxism, Neo-Liberalism and any seemingly abstract idea they can affix an anchor to that creates the perception of legitimacy. It provides a veil of credibility and suggests they are driven by values and some kind of greater cause.

The problem is that political philosophies are always flawed.

They are based on historical experience and viewpoints.

They are out of date as soon as they are on paper and certainly long before anyone could look at them and call them old.

Their real purpose today is as a device behind which MPs masquerading as politicians who give a shit about the People who elected them can hide their real motivation and purpose for getting elected – their rampant self interest and doing everything they can for themselves.

Politicians who are committed to doing the right thing and delivering something better for the People who elected them don’t need political philosophies to guide them if they are genuine with their will to get things done.

They simply need ears to listen, just as they need eyes to see. Accompanied by the thoughtfulness and motivation necessary to look through all risk and fear, to avoid the siren calls of opinion and to takes whatever steps and to do everything necessary in order to get the job done.

These are qualities and an approach that will not simply arrive by reading a book. Politicians will never deliver meaningful change by anchoring themselves to any anachronistic world view.

In fact, by trying to impose methods that have worked previously in what are very different experiences and times, these politicians of the old order are attempting to remedy todays problems by using the solutions to yesterdays political crimes which were in fact themselves the cause.

It doesn’t matter what label these politicians use to name something they do. If it doesn’t serve everyones purpose, the results will always end up being the same. 

Liberalism doesn’t work because it functions by being illiberal.

Socialism doesn’t work because no matter how idealistic we are, each of us has an intrinsic capitalist that thrives on aspiration and reward on board.

Even capitalism in its purest sense doesn’t work, and it doesn’t even attempt the effort to impose a system of morality and ethics that guide people to use responsibility the right way as at very least the other broken outlooks do.

None of these politicians have the understanding and wherewithal to appreciate and value taking steps to guide everyone appropriately is exactly what good government should be there for.

Politicians have wrapped themselves in a cloak of propriety, offered by stories told in the days of the politics of old whilst they remain blissfully unaware that everything outside of their Westminster bubble is going wrong.

These idealistic ideas and ideologies are nothing but nonsense to those who know their value. But they have the potential to cause catastrophe – and do so too, for everyone else outside the political sphere of influence when they are revered as tools and placed in idiots hands.

The only way that we can now begin to solve all the problems that this Country and the World beyond our borders has is to do away with affiliations and loyalties to broken ideas such as the only god is money.

We need to be led by politicians who will always remember that our relationships with EVERYBODY should be public policy’s underlying cause.

This will not happen with the Politicians and the Party Political System that we have now.

We the People of the UK must find a new and better way to do politics. So that the issues that are important to and on behalf of us all can be tackled, addressed and politics itself is only used constructively and for the purpose it was intended for – as the means and not the end.
