Fishheads in Parliament?
Yesterday, voters rejected a deeply flawed new voting system that, in the words of the Daily Mail, "makes winners out of losers".
What is needed is a reformed electoral system which makes winners out of the British people.
Our common-sense idealistic principles are not being represented in Parliament, which has sold us downriver to the EU; has tried to sell off our forests; is now on course to sell off our green land allotments; has dramatically raised university costs, which will hurt the poorest among us; has hurt the military with budget cuts while continuing to inadequately pay the men and women who risk their lives to defend us; and is cutting council services for young and old throughout our land. All this without once mentioning that none of these bloody cuts would be necessary if Britain withdrew from the EU, as our own Bill of Rights demands we do.
And I do declare that no foreign prince, person, prelate, state or potentate hath or ought to have any jurisdiction, power, superiority, pre-eminence or authority, ecclesiastical or spiritual, within this realm. So help me God. -Bill of Rights, 1689
Exhibit A - and it stinks to high heaven - is the very limited availability of fish and its high cost in Britain. We live on islands, once surrounded by fish-rich waters. Young and old brains benefitted from eating fish. Now, even on the coast, fish can be difficult to obtain, and the wonderful old standby, fish and chips, will put a family back more than 15 pounds. This is because British governments surrendered our waters to the European Union, and their greedy trawlers have wiped out our fish stocks.
We'd like to ask, will no one rid us of this dreadful European Union? But we know the only ones who can do that are we ourselves.
