This is going to be the march to watch as we see so very often for a few fleeting minutes on television news, many marches, protesting so many issues of a wide spectrum. What invokes the same thought on nearly every occasion is this, I doubt this commendable effort will have any effect whatsoever.
The people who can make the changes are the morally corrupt MP’s who are insulated from real life in so many ways by their own doing and laws to feather their own nests. What would make them uncomfortable, they don’t experience with their life style and what might, they legislate to protect themselves.
They all have the same smoke screen of, doing something for the public good but as we all know it is seldom done or achieved, as there seems to be some agreement on this expressed in the many futile petitions signed and marches trodden against MP’s who are supposed to be representing the public.
Does anyone have any evidence that such peaceful weak protest ever achieves result. Unless the march as in poll tax protest degenerates into anarchy and violence, then I think not. When the people are forced into similar cries for government to listen as in miners strike then either the army or police are taken from their real roll to be abused as oppressors of the population by our cotton wool padded politicians.
I don’t suggest for one moment a strike or other than peaceful march is desirable but I do think it is time a way was found to stamp down hard on MP’s who blatantly are corrupt and twist the laws to suit themselves and their own interests whilst obviously not representing their constituents for a sensible and just reward.
I do wonder if the damage inflicted on our society and humanity by politicians of all colours if far greater than the entire prison population does, Think of all the unnecessary dead soldiers and all those millions thrown away overseas that could have fixed a thousand problems here at home in the UK.
Fix our own problems first, enable education to a level where all will wish to work and have a realistic opportunity to do so, that will cut crime hugely. Where as, we currently continue to produce an underclass which MP’s find new ways every year to increase this segment of the population, thus over flowing the prisons. They then change all the targets, rules and laws to give lesser punishment to all in an effort to reduce the prison population, which in turn encourages even more disrespect of society and law, thus boosting prison population even further.
To police by public consent the police need to represent the public for their safety and not represent the failed politicians as an oppressive body who protect corrupt government.
welcome to the site!
I agree, I don’t think the march will achieve much. I’d still like to go, I’ve never been on a march, well not as a ‘marcher’.
Sadly, as my luck goes, I am working and can’t get any time off for it.
