"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it...and a moral code that glorifies it." Frederic Bastiat
One aspect of the 'plundering' came to light with the exposé, by the Daily Telegraph, of our elected representatives misuse of public money in 'Expensgate' - yet this is still continuing with MPs learning foreign languages which are paid for from the public purse. What, however, is just as important is the plundering of the nation's finances through ineptitude and also for reasons of political ideology.
Examples are legion; the cancelled IT projects; the introduction of multiculturalism which has placed untold burden and cost on society and public services; the continual 'tinkering' with our educational system resulting in incalculable cost for the future, in that the 'production line' produces an ill equipped end product; the imposition of costs to both individual and commerce through an enforced membership of what is, in effect, a United States of Europe; the abomination of costs imposed on individuals and commerce by an ill thought out environmental energy policy; the costs involved in attempts to introduce freedom and democracy abroad, whilst denying both to their own people; the subsidy that our political elite demand from the public purse to enable them to enjoy a lifestyle, one about which the majority can only dream - to name just some.
This plundering of the UK's wealth cannot be allowed to continue - and that is why a new system of democracy is urgently required for our nation.
