“Lets give the Liberals a go!”

published 23/04/2010

Democracy

Cameron

Time Magazine did a frivolous but intriguing article a few years back that examined the disproportionate number of high ranking politicians and presidents of the world who's Christian names all seemed to began with early letters in the alphabet, the theory being these guys were picked from lists...

“Letter to a Parliamentarian”

published 12/05/2015

Still in one piece

Destined to have a rocky, uncertain five years

To whom it may concern, if any (Read it out on election campaigns or on TV Debates) I may’ve lost my marbles during these last few months. I’m now checking that I’ve locked the front door before I leave my residence and I’ve added hazelnut syrup to my latte which is most unusual, I’m a smidgen...

“VOTE BADGER..........”

published 28/04/2005

Greater Policing, less red tape, reduction in cent...

None

As May 5th draws ever closer I'm sure I stand with a great number of the population who are increasingly sick and tired of television schedules being congested with party political broadcasts and the news covering nothing more than a select few bickering over who is right and who is wrong, who is...

“Government for Everyone”

published 20/04/2005

May not be in your short term interests

No class war!

When there's an election coming up, or something else of interest in the news, I seem to be constantly explaining to people that my politics degree is in theory and not current affairs. Nonetheless, I do have ideas on society generally and the democratic process - albeit generally in the abstract...

“Welcome to the Madhouse”

published 25/04/2005

This is my personal view of politics

I am probably going to get slated for it.

I will start off by saying that at this point I have absolutely no idea who I will vote for in the upcoming election. Why? Let me try and explain. Issues about politics Firstly I have a problem with the way politics as a whole is conducted at the highest level in this country. I find it amazing...

“A gesture worth making”

published 12/04/2005

Liberal and Democratic

Unlikely to win this time

This is not a party political broadcast on behalf of the Liberal Democrats. I write not as a party loyalist but an uncommitted neutral, suspicious of all politicians and sceptical about their promises. Nevertheless, when General Elections come round the outcome is going to affect all our lives...

“Vote Pendragon”

published 29/04/2005

Read the opinion

Don't Read the Opinion

The spectacle of frantic electioneering is once again gripping media coverage and public (dis)interest. Mere days away from the re-emergence of the ballot boxes in village halls up and down the nation and the tension is understandably gripping, or is it? Will this election actually conclusively...

It probably doesn't matter who wins

People forcing reasons why it does

After all my reviews and nonsense over the course of this last year since writing reviews on Ciao some people may want to know my take on the General Election - so here it is: First I should explain the title - In Palestine (yes it does exist) and Israel and perhaps Zimbabwe and South Africa it...

You may make a difference.

You probably won't.

As the election rapidly approaches I remain largely apathetic to all candidates. I trust neither Blair nor Howard and although Kennedy is a nice guy that does not a leader make. The minor parties are all one policy views be it the environmental stance of the Greens, the anti-Europe UKIP or the...

“Election 2005”

published 22/04/2005

Show you care - vote!

The voting age

As a frustrated 17 year old missing out on voting for the first time in the election on May the 5th by a couple of weeks, I am perhaps not best placed to be posting a comment on 'who to vote for'. However I feel, from my own experiences anyway, that my generation have strong views and take...

“No vote, no moan”

published 10/04/2005

All those promises

All those broken promises

I am not very politically minded as you will probably realise once you've read this review. But I do believe it is important to cast your vote and I have always done so. Therefor I have the right to complain. Being 50 years of age I've seen a few governments come and go, and don't see any...

“May 5th”

published 23/04/2005

using your vote

depends on who wins, not everyone votes

As the 5th May approaches the more we all get hit with whos going to do what and whos not going to do that and we all look at it all and think, thats hope its all okay. Or so i used to think. I must admit at the last General Election i was one the the thousands who did not, why should I ? What...

“DEMOCRACY”

published 10/05/2005

NONE

FAIRNESS

Now let me start with a definition if i may. What is DEMOCRACY? That form of government in which the sovereign power is exercised by the people in a body, as was the practice in some of the states of Ancient Greece; the term representative democracy has been given to a republican government like...

“Frustrated”

published 26/04/2005

Kennedy

Blair / Bush

I am not a politically minded person. I can quite happily go through each year not paying any attention to anything anyone has to say on this matter, but this year I have found myself getting involved. Each year I have voted based on the person whom I like. This may be a very simplistic way of...
