In my preceding post I posed the question whether the Coalition will last because of the wish of two disparate political parties to rescue the economy of our country, or whether it will last because the top echelon of those two disparate parties wish to retain their individual positions of privilege and power.
Where people wish to retain positions of privilege and power, be that the public or private sector, if pushed into the proverbial corner they will lie to save their careers. An example of this fact has been illustrated by Richard North, EU Referendum, (do follow the links) in which he shows that Cameron has in effect misled the House of Commons.
That the questioner, nor any other MP (God forbid MilibandE, who doesn't appear to know what day of the week it is) was not immediately hitting the 'airways' asking the question posed in Richard North's headline to his post, namely "Whose this "We", Cameron", leads one to finally believe that they are indeed "all in it together" - to coin a phrase. The marked lack of so-called 'Eurosceptics' so doing, was telling - what? Where was Cash, Carswell, Heaton-Harris, Bone, Jenkin (to name but a few) - and more importantly, although not an MP, where was that 'arch-antiEUer' Daniel Hannan, from whom so far we have not heard one peep?
The lack of rebuttal by MPs (and MEPs) can only be due to:
(a) they have no idea of what membership of the EU entails;
(b) they have no wish to 'rock the boat' as they are hoping for advancement in their careers', or:
(c) they are 'brain-dead' idiots.
Personally, I suspect the latter as that seems to be the prime qualification for entry into our political system.
Apologies for 'banging-on' about it, but does this not illustrate why our present system of democracy must, repeat must, be changed/
