I used to Vote. Don't see much point now. Any Government that is voted in is going to blame it's predesessor for problems and force upon us it's own rights.

We must be one of the most Government controlled Countries of the World! And most don't even relise it!

I say "bring back the Unions" (or just one. Named, "the Union of the People"), now they've not allways been good news for the Citizens of our fine Country, but at least (if used correctly) you'd have a large power that could stand up for peoples rights.

We all know where the Government is wasting/shaving money and area's that could be improved (NHS dentists, doctors, transport, Schools.......) but please tell me. How do we go about improving these services?

I'm sorry to sound so cynical, but it's fast becomming a "if you can't stand the heat, get out the Kitchen" policy from the powers.

I want Torys in as well. Boom and Bust I'll make loads of wonga and have plenty of disposible income.

On a more serious note though, I know more people today that say 5 years ago that are moving/emigrating to foreign lands.

Now what's the RIB industry like in Austrailia?

15 years and I'm off if I'm still fit and of healthy mind.

Sounds like a jail sentence. A pretty tough one you don't even get 15 years for murder nowadays.

I think the more tax you pay the bigger say you should have in the way it's spent - sounds fair enough to me!!!

What amazes me is that some immigrants I know are allowed to vote even though they are NOT British citizens. It is mad - any wonder tony blair let's so many people in - it's so they will all vote for him!!!
All of which would be an unusual basis for a democracy (I think the correct term for what you are proposing is Oligarchy).

fortunately RibNet is a dictatorship and I am sure our great leader will be locking this thread very soon.

This is labour guaranteeing its next term.

You even get prospective MPs going round and helping these poor people to fill out there voting forms and making sure they are balloted. Corrupt or what !
