Helen, Your Freedom and Ours, points to an article in the Daily Express by Lord Willoughby de Broke on the subject of Monday's debate in the House of Commons. Helen has highlighted the passage which appeals to her and quite rightly too in view of the content. Personally, I would also highlight the following:
"We have a political class that has decided that it knows best, that it has the sole right to decide for the people of Britain what is and isn’t in their interests. It remains aloof from the hopes and fears of the majority. It wishes to continue with policies that have long since been rejected in the hearts of our citizens."
In their continual refusal to grant the people a say on EU membership; in promising Localism incorporating referendums, but allowing the people's vote to be ignored; all that the political elite in this country are doing is confirming that we do indeed live under a system of democratised dictatorship. Just how many times do I have to keep repeating this before people wake up and begin to use what brain cells they possess?
That eventually the people will rise up and rebel cannot be denied - as a people we are slow to anger, but once angered..........
Cameron, Clegg, MilibandE - and all their MPs - would do well to reflect on Gadaffi's fate!
