So its another media muppet show trying to persaude the people that they are free and live in a democracy! YAWN….. the people do not believe this anymore, this can be seen by the incredible low turn outs for the general and local elections. We can also see from the mass demonstrations ,that this low turnout has nothing to do with the people being happy with the status quo! It is in reality that people do not see anything worth voting for in today elections.
This is because there is no difference between New Labour and Old Tories ,both are just representing the “State Capitalist” party
State capitalism has various different meanings, but is usually described as a society wherein the productive forces are controlled and directed by the state in a capitalist manner, even if such a state calls itself socialist. Corporatized state agencies and states that own controlling shares of publicly-listed firms, and thus acting as a capitalist itself, are two examples of state capitalism
OF COURSE THIS IS JUST FASCISM!!
Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.
Benito Mussolini, fascist dictator of Italy (1922-1943)
THAT IS WHY THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LABOUR AND TORY OR REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRAT
“Our only political party has two right wings, one called Republican, the other Democratic. But Henry Adams figured all that out back in the 1890s. ‘We have a single system,’ he wrote, and ‘in that system the only question is the price at which the proletariat is to be bought and sold, the bread and circuses.”
Gore Vidal narrates the Fall of the American Empire
So we have the electeral reforms waved at us, to try and get our political attention. Of course this means NOTHING!! ITS A WASTE OF TIME AND EFFORT AND CHANGES NOTHING!!ITS A POLITICAL CON!!
It is just there to try and get more people out to vote for the “state capitalist party”(Labour,Tory ,Liberal) again, so they can go on about government mandates from the people and other such soundbyte nonsense! Thankfully Alex Salmond(SNP) has shown complete disdain for this GIMMICK!! That is all it is, a gimmick , but so is our modern “democracy” .Today our political system is Spartan ,not Athenian! It is in fact a modern “rule of the 30 tyrants” , the system that the democratic Athenians overthrew!!
IF WE WANTED REAL REFORM AND REAL DEMOCRACY WE WOULD DEMAND A DIRECT DEMOCRACY POLITICAL SYSTEM!!
Direct democracy, classically termed pure democracy, is a form of democracy and a theory of civics in which 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,EU)where sovereignty is exercised by a subset of the people, usually on the basis of election.
OUR REPRESENTATIVE “SUBSET OF THE PEOPLE” HAVE ALL BEEN “VETTED” AND ARE ALL BACKED BY THE SAME INTERESTS AND LOBBY GROUPS. THEY ARE IN EFFECT A ONE-PARTY SYSTEM OF DICTATORSHIP. WE GET TO VOTE FOR THE “CHEERLEADER”!!
ICELAND AND SWITZERLAND HAVE A DIRECT DEMOCRACY SYSTEM. BECAUSE OF THIS NEITHER ARE BAILING OUT CRIMINAL BANKERS OR ARE INVOLVED IN ILLEGAL WARS.
The (Icelandic Direct Democracy) referendum for or against taking over the Ice-save debts unconditionally by the Icelandic tax-payer has brought a clear “No” vote with 93.2% of those who voted,
IN THE UK WE HAVE NO VOICE AND NO CHOICE!!!
WE HAD TO PROTEST IN THE STREETS AND GET BEATEN AND EVEN MURDERED BY POLICE STATE THUG BOOT BOYS .THE GOVERNMENT MAINSTREAM MEDIA MOUTH PIECE(BBC) THEN BLAMES THE VICTIM!!!
END THE STATE CAPITALIST ELECTED DICTATORSHIP!
HOW DEMOCRATIC ARE OUR ELECTIONS?
THEY ARE NOT DEMOCRATIC AND THEY BREAK OUR EUROPEAN HUMAN RIGHTS!!
In a lot of the “new democracy” countries(ex-Soviet etc..) ,there is a non-election result if less than 50% of the electorate vote.So this would actually VOID most of our “elected politions” from taking office as thier “election” had FAILED to reach the required minimum representation!
ALSO VOTING IS A HUMAN RIGHT ,NOT A PRIVILIGE GRANTED BY THE GOVERNMENT!!
THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO RIGHT TO DENY ANYBODY A VOTE!!
ELECTORAL ROLLS ARE ILLEGAL, IF YOU PAY TAX YOU GET A VOTE ,IF YOU ARE A LOCAL RESIDENT YOU GET A VOTE ,END OF STORY!!!!
THE GOVERNMENT HAS ITS WIRES CROSSED ,IT IS A DISPOSIBLE SERVANT, NOT OUR ELECTED DICTATOR!!
BELGIUM HAS BEEN WITHOUT A GOVERNMENT FOR NEARLY A YEAR ….ITS DOING GREAT , THE PEOPLE ARE HAVING STREET PARTIES TO CELEBRATE!!
IF THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT TRUST THE PEOPLE,WHY DOESN’T IT DISSOLVE THEM AND ELECT A NEW ONE?!?!
PLEASE ANSWER ME THAT POLITION!!
…….YOU ARE NOT NEEDED ,YOU ARE NOT WANTED EITHER…..BUT MAYBE A WAR CRIMES AND HUMAN RIGHTS COURT MIGHT WANT A WORD WITH YOU ……AS WELL AS THE FRAUD SQUAD AND CHILD PROTECTION AGENCIES!!!
European Elections break our European Human Rights
Human Rights Violations at the Scottish Parliament Elections
Dear Mr Black,
I am an independent candidate for Glasgow Kelvin at the elections to the Scottish Parliament on May the 5th 2011.
I wish to make the following statements concerning the known human rights violations occurring at these elections.
1.Everyone has the right to vote and participate in elections that are held in conditions compatible with international democratic principles[i].
1.This right[ii] is set out in article 3 of protocol number one to the European Convention on Human Rights (“ECHR”)[iii].
1.The highest courts have found that all elections ever held in the U.K. have not been held in conditions compatible with either international democratic principles or Article 3 of Protocol 1 to the ECHR[iv].
1.All the main political parties and their Parliamentary Executives are fully aware of this situation and have known this since March of 2004[v].
1.The forthcoming elections for the Scottish Parliament are unlawful[vi] and are being held in conditions that violate the human rights of every person in Scotland.
1.All elections previously held in the U.K. have been unlawful and have violated the human rights of every person in the U.K.[vii].
1.Due to the above, I hereby state that I have no wish to take part in elections that are unlawful, undemocratic and violate the human rights of every person in Scotland. I therefore disassociate myself from this election.
1.I will use my candidacy to inform everyone of this state of affairs and I also wish to make it clear that I have no intention of taking any part in or deriving any benefit from an undemocratically elected Scottish Parliament.
1.I question any police officer who has either seen or received this statement to consider whether this deliberate and wilful violation of everyone’s human rights (and the undermining of democracy) is fraud[viii].

[i]See the case of Hirst (No 2) v the UK (application number 74025/01) at paragraphs 56 to 62. Note that Hirst (No 2) was a decision of the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights delivered on the 6th of October 2005. All EctHR decisions can be found on-line at: http://echr.coe.int/echr/en/hudoc
[ii]In Hirst (No 2) the court stated that every person must be able to to participate in democratic elections and that this is a ‘right not a privilege’. The elections must take place in conditions that satisfy the ECHR and modern democratic principles.
[iii]See Hirst (No 2) for the ECHR articles and protocols. See the Human Rights Act 1998 and the Scotland Act 1998 for an explanation of when parts of the ECHR, including article 3 of protocol number 1, were brought into UK Law.
[iv]See Hirst (No 2), Smith v. Scott 2007 SLT 137 – where the Registration Appeal Court stated that the 2007 elections for the Scottish Parliament were not convention complaint. Note that the state has a positive obligation to ensure that elections are both convention compliant and consistent with democratic principles.
[v]In relation to Westminster: the executive are the Cabinet. In Scotland: the executive are the Scottish Ministers. All of the four main political parties (Labour, Conservative, Lib-Dem and the SNP) are represented and have been involved in court cases where the highest courts have stated that the elections that elected them have been held in unlawful conditions. They have refused to do anything about this and therefore, in the opinion of the writer, they do not respect democracy and they will continue to violate the human rights of all persons in the U.K.
See Hirst (No 2) where a grand chamber of the European Court of Human Rights described an earlier decision of the court as follows:
“In its judgment of 30 March 2004 (“the Chamber judgment”), the Chamber held unanimously that there had been a violation of Article 3 of Protocol No. 1”
[vi]See section 6(1) of the Human Rights Act 1998.
[vii]Under the treaties on European Union all European Citizens have the right to take part in elections that are held in conditions compatible with modern democratic principles. The current situation in the UK not only violates the human rights of all UK citizens it also violates the rights of all European Citizens.
[viii]Fraud: a) Salaries are being taken by politicians who know that i) they have not been democratically elected and ii) that they were elected in conditions that violated the human rights of everyone who voted for them; b) Large amounts of money has been spent to organise and publicise an election that violates the human rights of everyone; and c) Money and time has been spent or will be spent by the people who are participating in this election – both candidates and voters.
THIS IS THE NORMAL SITUATION IN EUROPEAN ELECTIONS! MOST ARE AGAINST OUR HUMAN RIGHTS AND ARE NOT TRUELY DEMOCRATIC
The ongoing IMF attack on European Democracy
Sunday,24 April 2011 00:00
by David Malone
In December of last year I wrote an article called “The cost of the bail out – Just your Democracy.” In it I referenced an IMF document called “Lifting Euro Area Growth: Priorities for Structural Reforms and Governance.” What prompted me to look at that IMF publication was the injudicious way the IMF publicly told Portugal that it should cut its unemployment payouts.
The document in question, I argued, was nothing short of the IMF’s blue-print for how to ensure the public in every country were forced to bear austerity measures in order to pay off their bankers’ debts. The paper detailed how collective wage bargaining had to be curtailed, wages lowered and laws over hiring and firing made more business friendly. It laid out how taxes should be moved from labour to consumption which is disguised way of saying shift taxes from graduated income taxes to flat rate VAT – shifting from high earners and businesses to ordinary consumers. And last and most fundamentally, how these ‘essential reforms’ could only be achieved if decision about them were removed from democratic control. Leaving such decisions too near to the electorate and their representatives was why they had not happened yet.
PROTEST AND SURVIVE
……….OR ENJOY YOUR FREEDOM PEASANT AND REMEBER TO PAY YOUR TAXES ,TO KEEP BANKERS AND POLITIONS IN THE LIFESTYLE THEY HAVE BECOME ACCUSTOMMED TOO AND REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR CHILDREN OFF TO SLAUGHTER SOME INNOCENT FOREIGNER SO BIG BUSINESS CAN GRAB THIER RESOURSES!!
FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY WESTERN STYLE…YOU ARE FREE BECAUSE WE THE GOVERNMENT ,TELL YOU YOU ARE!!! IF YOU TRY AND QUESTION THIS YOU WILL BE BEATEN AND CALLED A DRUNKEN YOUTH ANARCHIST!!
POLITICAL PARTIES AND THE GOVERNMENT IS THE PROBLEM NOT THE SOLUTION ,ITS A CON, ITS ELECTED DICTATORSHIP POSING AS DEMOCRACY
“Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of the government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men, who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world.
BY DIVIDING THE VOTERS THROUGH THE POLITICAL PARTY SYSTEM, WE CAN GET THEM TO EXPEND THEIR ENERGIES IN FIGHTING FOR QUESTIONS OF NO IMPORTANCE.
Montagu Norman, Governor of The Bank Of England, addressing the United States Bankers’ Association, New York, 1924.
THUS WE ARE GIVEN A REPRESENTATION OF DEMOCRACY ,CALLED “REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY” AND TOLD WE ARE DEMOCRATIC AND FREE!
ITS A LIE
WE LIVE IN A DICTATORSHIP WHERE WE ONLY GET TO VOTE FOR THE DICTATOR, A CHOICE OF TWEEDLE DUM AND TWEEDLE DEE,BOTH HAVE THE SAME BACKERS.
GOVERNMENT LIES TO THE PEOPLE ,GOVERNMENT CREATES DEBT ,GOVERNMENT START ILLEGAL WARS ,GOVERNMENT BEAT THIER CITIZENS
THE PEOPLE GET LIED TOO , GET HANDED THE DEBT , FIGHT THE ILLEGAL WARS AND GET BEATEN WHEN THEY PROTEST
If we where a TRUE DIRECT DEMOCRACY we would NOT have to take to the streets ,and get beaten by state boot boy police thugs , we would of held a referendum and voted to say “NO!”. In a democracy you have the right to say NO! In a dictatorship you get beaten if you say no!………IN THE UK WE STILL GET BEATEN FOR TRYING TO SAY NO!!…QED, WE LIVE IN A DICTATORSHIP!!
Switzerland is a direct democracy and has the highest standards of living and least crime in Europe! Iceland is a direct democracy and has arrested its criminal bankers and its previous Prime Minister for fraud!! Libya is a direct democracy with a state owned central bank, they have the highest living standards in Africa , that is why WE the “forces of freedom and democracy” are currently “humanitarianly” bombing, invading and destroying them!!
If we do not live in a dictatorship you will be able to tell me what YOU get a vote on ,other than the choice of dictator?
THE AV VOTING SYSTEM WILL CHANGE NOTHING!!! ANOTHER POLITICAL WASTE OF TIME ,MONEY AND EFFORT!!
SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE AND DIRECT DEMOCRACY IS THE SOLUTION!!
BUT OUR “DEMOCRATIC REPRESENTATIVES” WOULD DENY US BOTH OF THESE!!
