We need a new Parliament and we need it NOW. The problem is this shit show of a self serving party political system which means democracy won’t easily be recovered

We are being fucked by our own Parliament. Right now. Today. And our MPs are so blinded by their own arrogance that they cannot see any other way.

Action taken by MPs in recent days seeking to dictate a form of Brexit that the People did not Vote for and now even the Speaker of the House of Commons breaking with Procedure to ensure outcomes which are aligned with his causes that are only his own tells us just how rotten this Parliament has now become.

The destiny of this Country is now in the hands of usurpers. Their only focus being what works for them and no more.

Democracy is actively in its death throws over Brexit right now and as we look at the mindless self-interest engulfing our Government, we can only ask if this behaviour of the people who are supposed to be leading us is a real reflection of what we as a Nation have now become.

We need to change and refresh our Parliament as quickly as it is possible to do so.

We must replace the self-interest and contempt for democracy which is being displayed in every way by the current incumbents. We need politicians who realise, accept and respect that what is best for this Country and the People they represent, is as Representatives of the People, their only worthwhile cause.

The problem is that change within the system as it currently exists is not what on is offer, even within what may now be an imminent General Election.

The difference in the mentality of the Politicians who would replace all of these Party stooges, even if they were to step down voluntarily, is simply not there to be had.

With the Party Political System and the Political Parties structured today in the way that they are, we, as a Country, have been set up to fail.

The Political Parties only knowingly recruit, endorse and support politicians who are in their own image.

If you need to see what the end result of this process is in action, take a brief look at Theresa May and every Member of her glory-at-any-cost Cabinet. It is clear to see why change is needed so desperately and how our whole system of democracy has become terminally flawed.

The deck is critically stacked against any new entrant to the list of electable political parties who will willingly pursue change. Of that much we can be absolutely sure.

Yet we now need a new Political Party more than ever.

A Party which isn’t just a Party, but a movement. A new way of working with Government and Politics. Something conscious of cause and effect, the age of consequence. A power base which is in touch, truly dynamic and ready to offer us all something which is a whole lot more.

There are few serving politicians even at Westminster who could genuinely switch or reconstitute an existing Party in order to develop the right mentality and approach at the very core.

The question is for us exactly where is the change therefore going to come from. Because without it, this Country is on the verge – that’s perhaps only weeks away – from being well and truly lost.

MPs who cannot respect the Will of the People should step aside and make way for genuine representatives who will

You’ve probably heard the saying that absolute power corrupts absolutely, and so with it the suggestion that as the power of an individual increases, their morality and therefore ethics diminish in a like amount.

We should all be grateful that this is not generally an absolute rule. But in terms of today’s Parliament and the majority of the Members within it, I regrettably find myself being far from sure anymore.

Like many others, I have tapped away at my keyboard over recent weeks and months, at best bemused and at worst very sad at the state of British Politics and in particular what the activities and motivations of most of our MP’s has actually become.

That Brexit is the event that should never have happened in the minds of those who were Elected to serve us is already a given. That they are so hell-bent on overturning the democratic will of the people – even if it boils down to acts which are designed to deceive us all, gives a very telling insight of how dangerous to our democracy, the behaviour, self interest and lack of ethics and morality on the part of our politicians has actually become.

Yet to take debate and argument to a level where action will be taken to actively prevent the Brexit that the People Voted for, way surpasses the political malaise that has been present for a long time before the Referendum Vote and tells us that very few of the politicians elected to represent us actually understand what representation means and what the Representation of the People Act was itself brought into being for.

Holding up government might well prove to be a brilliant idea if you are a US President who has no concept of the pain caused and genuine loss of such action to others. But it is not the action of any individual or group of MP’s who paint themselves as being servants of the people, as respecting democracy and having the best interests of their Country at the heart of what they do – if they actually mean it.

To even attempt to derail the delivery of a democratic mandate – not because their fears have in any way been proven, but because they are simply too gutless and irresponsible to put their own ideas and plans to one side – is a travesty of democracy and of justice. They are simply trying to enact a decision that was never theirs to decide.

MP’s en masse are now making their position very clear. A position that shows they are incapable of carrying out the responsibility that has been entrusted to them. They are failing all of us, our Country, our future and it’s time that all of those MP’s who cannot see the will of the British People for what it is, however unpalatable they might themselves find it, should resign AND step aside.

We do not need a Parliament constructed of little other than the self-serving.

The UK has far too many issues that need redeeming, a prosperous non-EU future to embrace and far too many opportunities for good to be identified and acted upon for all of this to be put at risk by the lack of vision, integrity and care for others that is the only direction that all of these self-representatives are inclined.
