The Way We Are Governed In The UK

Participating, directly or indirectly, with UK funds in the Greek bailouts in order to keep the Euro alive.

Placing ill thought out trust in the merits of wind turbines for energy production and ensuring in consequence that our fuel bills continue to increase to painful levels.

Giving aid to Pakistan.

Rendering the country unable to deport foreign terrorists and other undesirables by leaving the Human Rights Act on the statute book.

Leaving the ordinary citizen vulnerable to bullying and browbeating by agents of the state, directly or indirectly (think of the DVLA helping out pirate parking firms), who never pass up a chance to go after a soft target.

Maintaining a hostile attitude towards grammar schools.

Fuelling inflation via quantitative easing.

Turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to the plight of would be wealth creators burdened by excessive regulation.

And maintaining that the UK's membership of the EU is a good thing.

Policies of the socialist government with which we were enslaved for 13 years, all left untouched by the Coalition whose sole aim appears to be managing the legacy and the resulting decline rather than pursuing truly bold reforms.

One wasted year so far, and the threat of four more. Thank you, political class. You're all right, and nothing else matters.

On that note, let's bring an end to these occasional comments on UK politics and current affairs. Barring a truly seismic event, such as the break up of the Euro and the consequent collapse of the EU - we should be so lucky - there's little point in complaining. No one is listening.
