If you have ever seen a video of PMQ’s, (Prime Ministers Questions), you will understand full well why I say that desperate times require desperate measures. It is reminiscent of baboons squabbling over a choice piece of fruit, and about as productive.
I am certainly not the only one to think so.
Apparently Jenny Willott, the Equalities minister, has declared she hates prime minister’s questions with a “total passion”. More on this here:-

Now I maintain that the so-called ‘Democratic system’ in the UK is no longer fit for purpose, and is in dire need of a total revision. If you have looked at my site “The Challenge of Democracy”, you will understand why.
We can’t call on the obvious person for help – Guy Fawkes – as he is long since dead. Curiously enough, he has been described as “the last man to enter Parliament with honest intentions”, and I can fully understand why. (Wikipedia).
No, we have to rely on somebody who is currently alive, and in a position to do the job that needs to be done. The job I have in mind is certainly not to blow up the Houses of Parliament, but to decimate the parties that currently hold sway in it.
It doesn’t really matter which one you look at, they are all incapable of governing the country in the interests of the electorate, and that is why the system is failing us.
In order to achieve the change that is needed, it is first necessary to break the stranglehold that big business has over the parties in the system. We need a disruptive factor.
Enter Nigel Farage, and UKIP!
What you think of him doesn’t matter. Nigel is pushing the three main parties onto the defensive, and current polls show that UKIP is in a very strong position prior to the European elections on May 22nd.
Camerons latest invective, “David Cameron brands Nigel Farage and Ukip a threat to Britain”
is a case in point. It is a total misrepresentation of what UKIP is all about. Cameron is scared, and Cameron is scaremongering!
As for Bill Drummond, (who on earth is he, by the way), his asinine splurgings have probably contributed to an increased vote for UKIP – exactly the opposite of what he wanted to achieve. See:-“Why I covered a Ukip billboard poster with my international grey paint”
Quite honestly, I am not at all convinced that UKIP would be able to form a viable UK government, even if they were able to win a majority in an election.
But that is not the point!
UKIP just has to provide the disruptive factor we need, and the job is done. What happens to them after that is not relevant to this discussion.
