We have a political crisis that gets deeper day after day. We are being told daily of expenses abuses by Members of Parliament (MP's). The MP's 'fingered' so far are from all three major political parties. The list gets longer and longer. No party comes out of this smelling of Roses. Frankly this stinks. I think it is definitely the most serious political crisis in Britain in my lifetime.
And yet this may be a time when we have a real opportunity to change things.
MP’s seem frightened of their shadows at the moment. They are no doubt worried about just what and who are going to be exposed by the Daily Telegraph each day.
MP’s are supposed to be the people we look up to and they have totally destroyed any trust we are supposed to have in them. So many of them seem to have had their head in the trough.
The public of the UK are very angry and are demanding change.
Someone said to me this week – “It’s fine having a General Election … but who the hell do we vote for?”
We have a real opportunity to see radical change – the emergence of new politicians who are motivated for the right reasons.
A phoenix can rise from the flames. Let’s hope so.
I would like to see a complete change with the creation of new political movements that stand for ethics, integrity, common sense and simplicity.
Sometimes I think to myself ... “Am I exaggerating? – is it really as serious as I'm thinking?”
I keep answering myself – “Yes it is as serious as that.”
As far as I can see MP’s have lost all credibility – none of them are now trusted, simply because we don’t know all the information about this expenses scandal …
