I am sick and tired of UNLESS politions harping on about “how tough” they got it and how its impossible to survive on thier wages and and how UNDERVALUED THEY ARE!!!!!!!!!!
SORRY BUT I DO NOT BELIEVE A WORD OF IT!!!!!
YOU (The MP) get paid from the same “kitty” as Nurses and Teachers and Firemen ,for example. Can I ask the public who deserves the money the most?
Do you think an MP is worth more than a Nurse or a teacher or a firemen? I DO NOT!!!!!!!!!
If nurses went on strike , people would DIE in great numbers , these HEROES deserve a pay rise!!!!
If teachers went on strike ,our kids would NOT be educated , these people earn thier money!!!!!
If firemen go on strike , we face another “Great fire of London”, these people too are earning thier money.
SO MP’S AND POLITIONS ,YOU GET PAID FROM THE SAME TAXPAYER KITTY AS NURSES ETC, SO IF YOU HAVE ISSUES ABOUT PAY AND THINK YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN A NURSE……
GO ON STRIKE AND PROVE YOUR WORTH THE MONEY!!!!!!!!
FYI IF YOU(MP) want to be paid the equivilant of “private sector” pay ,so as to keep the brightest and the best in the Halls of Power, then please STOP COMPLAINING AND GO AND WORK FOR THE PRIVATE SECTOR!
BUT I think the private sector would NOT pay you as YOU do NOT have the TALENT ,IMHO that’s why YOU became a polition instead of a private sector head of indusrty .
I would be happier paying Nurses and Teachers the equivilant of private sector pay , before a pay a polition ONE SINGLE PENNY!!!!!
Simple Truth is that politions are NOT the brightest and the best , they are just moths attracted to the bright light of power and corruption. Actually the very people we should keep AWAY FROM INSTITUTIONS OF POWER!
A good example of what the “brightest and the best” can do is the financial industry! Still demanding “taxpayer” BONUES from companies that would NO LONGER EXIST if they where left to free market forces!!! The brightest and the best I DO NOT THINK SO!!!!
SO WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF POLITIONS GO ON STRIKE?
AN IMPROVEMENT IN THE STANDARD OF LIVING ….. AND MORE FREEDOMS PREHAPS?
This is what happened when the government of Argentina collapsed in 2001 and fled with its pockets stuffed with anything of value. The last act of any government is TO LOOT THE NATION!!!!!
ARGENTINA HAS SEEN A FORM OF DIRECT DEMOCRACY SINCE 2001
on 20 December 2001 Argentina dove into its worst institutional and economic crisis since the 1890 Barings financial debacle. There were violent street protests, which clashed with police and resulted in several fatalities. The increasingly chaotic climate, amid riots accompanied by cries that “they should all go”, finally resulted in the resignation of President de la Rúa.
Three presidents followed in quick succession over two weeks, culminating in the appointment of interim President Eduardo Duhalde by the Legislative Assembly on 2 January 2002. Argentina defaulted on its international debt, and the peso’s 11 year-old tie to the U.S. dollar was rescinded,
After the non-violent collapse of the Argentinean government in 2001/2002, the social and economic organization of Argentina has undergone major changes, though how important these changes are remains to be seen. Worker occupations of factories and popular assemblies have both been seen functioning in Argentina, and both are the kind of action endorsed by anarchists: the first is a case of direct action and the latter a case of direct democracy. Approximately 200 “recovered” factories (fábricas recuperadas) are now self-managed and collectively owned by workers. In the large majority of them, pay is completely egalitarian; generally no professional managers are employed, or managers are collectively controlled in the other cases. These co-operatives have organised themselves into networks. Solidarity and support from external groups such as neighborhood assemblies and unemployed (piquetero) groups have often been important for the survival of these factories. Similar developments have taken place in Brazil and Uruguay. In 2004, Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein (author of No Logo) released the documentary The Take, which is about these events.
These anarchic , libertarian ideas has seen a rise in living standards and freedoms of the people of Argentina
ECONOMICALLY ARGENTINA HAS ALSO BOOMED
BUT OF COARSE DO NOT EXPECT TO HEAR ABOUT ARGENTINA’S CONVERSION ON THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA!!!!!
SO REMIND ME , WHY ARE WE PAYING POLITIONS ANYTHING AT ALL!!!!
LETS COMPARE THE EFFECTIVNESS OF STATE GOVERNMENT WITH THE EFFECTIVNESS OF PEOPLE POWER
Well a good example might be the Thialand Boxing Day Tsunami.
Our government was “On Christmas holidays” when the Tsunami hit unexpectedly on Boxing Day. By the time Tony Blair managed to get off his holiday chair and back to the UK and get in front of a camera to announce what his reaction would be.
THERE WAS ALREADY DOCTORS ,NURSES AND OTHER VOLUNTEERS ON SITE AND FINANCED BY NGO’s …NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANISATIONS
PEOPLE POWER IN ACTION….THESE PEOPLE MAKE ME PROUD TO BE HUMAN… AND all before Tony Blair could get in front of a camera and show his generousity by promising more of OUR MONEY and sending useless “state” aid.
LETS LOOK AT THE “HURRICANE KATRINA” RESPONSE FROM THE WORLD’S MOST EXPENSIVE GOVERNMENT.
THEY KNEW WHERE AND WHEN THE HURRICANE WOULD HIT DAYS IN ADVANCE!!!!!
The government spent its time stopping NGO’s from entering the scene of devastation and probably caused MORE DEATHS!!!!
THIS IS NOT AN UNUSUAL RESULT ….REMEMBER HURRICANE ANDREW 1992?
Over 5,200 dead from Andrew. Media are CENSORED, they LIE
FEMA is our mortal ENEMY! It is EVIL
THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED DURING HURRICANE ANDREW 1992
The injuries of those who survived were mind boggling. I had a broken jaw with eight teeth knocked out. Huge shards of glass impaled my body so deeply, they were impossible to remove without the aid of a scalpel. My head injuries were so severe it permanently affected my eyesight.
But I was only one amongst thousands of severely injured victims who struggled to survive the aftermath. For ten long days, we were roped-off from the outside world by United States military forces, leaving us stranded with no food, no water, no medical supplies or shelter. Suffering from severe shell-shock, we waited and waited for rescue teams to arrive but that just never happened. None of the injured in the roped-off areas were ever rescued from the devastation. It was the worst gut-wrenching betrayal I have ever experienced. I saw grown men lying on the ground in the fetal position, moaning and groaning pathetically, as they tried to hug and rock themselves.
My son was amongst them.
Don’t get me wrong, United States military forces were indeed present in the roped-off areas within hours of Andrew ending. But they were not there to help survivors.
Not until I managed to escape the aftermath did I discover that the “thermo-king” sections of these same refrigerator trucks, jam-packed with wall-to-wall body bags, ended up being stored at Card Sound Navy Base, located in an isolated area just above the Florida Keys. The inside temperature was kept cool by portable generators until the bodies were either incinerated or just plain dumped into huge open grave pits.
Those working on the body pick-up operation were forced to take what is known as the Oath of Sworn Secrecy, which is strictly enforced by the government. Many of them plunged into shock, once exposed to the ghastly devastation and countless mutilated bodies.
The survivors of hurricane Andrew and the rest of the American people were betrayed by their own government.
BUT that’s what governments do , they PROVIDE EXCUSES NOT RESULTS!!!!!
SO I SAY ,FIRE THE POLITIONS TODAY, THE LOT OF THEM!!!…. AND LETS HAVE A DIRECT DEMOCRACY
BUT..what anarchic nonsense …It’ll never work……. You’re a dreamer…..well just end up as a basket case ….the sky will fall…the world will end is the usual brain washes response.
BUT WHAT ABOUT SWITZERLAND? … A DIRECT DEMOCRACY ,A VERSION OF ANARCHISM, OR PEOPLE POWER!
Is anyone going to say Switzerland is a disfunctional or inefficient state with high crime rates and low living standards and life expectancy?
Officially the Swiss Confederation (Confoederatio Helvetica in Latin, hence its ISO country codes CH and CHE), is a federal republic consisting of 26 cantons. its a Federal state, with parliamentary system and direct democracy .
Direct democracy, classically termed pure democracy, comprises a form of democracy and theory of civics wherein sovereignty is lodged in the assembly of all citizens who choose to participate. Depending on the particular system, this assembly might pass executive motions, make laws, elect or dismiss officials, and conduct trials. Direct democracy stands in contrast to representative democracy, (UK/USA)where sovereignty is exercised by a subset of the people, usually on the basis of election……OR the choice of Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dum……. FYI “Direct democracy” is a form of ANARCHISM!
FYI The Swiss have avoided illegal wars and have less crime and a higher standard of living!
THE SWISS HAVE NO STANDING ARMY!!!!!! The Swiss Confederation has a long history of neutrality—it has not been in a state of war internationally since 1815.The Swiss Armed Forces, including the Land Forces and the Air Force, are composed of conscripts: professional soldiers constitute only about 5 percent of the military personnel.The structure of the Swiss militia system stipulates that the soldiers keep their own personal equipment, including all personal weapons, at home.
THERE IS NOT AN ARMY ON EARTH THAT COULD TAKE SWITZERLAND!!!
IT IS TIME TO FOLLOW THE SWISS EXAMPLE , DISBAND THE PARLIMENTRY DICTATORSHIP ,THE UK AND USA HAVE AN “ELECTED DICTATORSHIP” (what else do YOU get to vote on, except YOUR dictator?) …….OR “PARLIMENTRY DEMOCRACY” AS LYING POLITIONS CALL IT
This way we can expose paedophiles in government instead of covering for them for a 100 years, and stop illegal mass murder, for profit and delusional ideology!!!
AND ITS TIME TO DISBAND OUR STANDING ARMIES (WHICH HAVE DONE NOTHING BUT INVADE OTHER PEOPLES COUNTRIES!!!!!!)
This would stop ” blackmailed ” MP’s using the army to invade other countries that are no threat to us and inflicting untold damage and suffering on the world.
The army would become the “People’s Militia” where the majority of the population make up the armed forces, I’d like to see some pompous liar of a polition boss this army around and send it to commit atrocities around the world!
LIBERTARIAN SOCIALISM IS THE ANSWER
SO GOVERNMENT, PLEASE GO ON STRIKE AND PROVE YOU ARE WORTH THE TAXPAYERS MONEY !!!!!
BECAUSE I DO NOT BELIEVE YOU!!!!
