What a load of Ballots

 In a real democracy where the politicians can all be trusted, believed and relied on to do the job and not just milk the system, and where the need for a secret ballot has finally been eradicated from the paranoid mentality of the elite minority. In a world where we have the nation wide connectivity of the internet, and where companies can afford to invest in secure networks using fiber optic cable, and where a national database of every eligible voters details are already on a database, say the national register. And with people recognition hardware already being used and further developed at the front end of daily cash transactions. Why do we still have a secret ballot and its very dubious counting mechanism from the eighteenth century? Being mismanaged by the follies of human nature.


In an environment where banking executives are still thieving every penny that they can get doesn’t inspire confidence in a system that so obviously needs to be constrained by legislation, because it cant be trusted to not incentivise the old school chum network with stolen bonuses, after the world wide crash at their greedy hands. They are just not any more fit for purpose than the west end fiddlers.


Just goes to show what they all think of the common man, and reflects what they believe about looking out for yourself first, in the elite club of the self preservation societies gang of rouges.


In this day and age of the ipod generation, the hand held connectivity clubbers are at the forefront of technological advancement, where total transparency is still a buzz phrase (at least that’s the word in the virtual highway anyway) and doesn’t look like it will ever be grounded in the real world. The only change that we need is for the system to realise that they are responsible for the final decay of the last vestiges of the brave new world, as they hammer a willing work horse to death, penalises tardiness for late payments, and persecutes with prejudice the unfortunate and ill equipped to defend themselves.


The technology exists today for us to all be able to enter a voting place log in biometrically and cast a vote that is immediately registered on a public display where independent local adjudicators can verify the voting process. And there will be no need for a count recount system. The only thing that is lacking in the whole process is the mythical vote of no confidence in any of the candidates and if we all agree to include this ‘none of the above’ ballot amendment. It would finally be a voting system to envy and be the foundation of the way that voting should be done, in a truly democratic system.


MP’s are the elected representatives of the local constituents, the voice of the people at the court of the land. This is the base of the accepted seat of power in this green and pleasant land. They are supposed to petition the seat of power on behalf of the voiceless, to present the case for exceptions, for change and for progress for the lowest in the land for the powerless masses at the sharp end of an insensitive machine as it grinds up the life blood of the helpless in the path of the relentless motion of the blind trudge of the daily tread, as it lumbers its blind slog into infinity or beyond. The west end profile has a limited number of do gooders and social and political reformers in its ranks, and is instead flooded with a glut of low moral self-serving wannabes. The lack of honour and integrity in our system and its associated power structures indicates that only a crooked system can produce a crooked outcome.


A system that is based on fair play, proportional representation and has the backing of the whole populace will serve the whole countries best interests, if it has a spokes person that will defend our green and pleasant land against the profiteering marauders that regularly pirate the corporate fishing pool. You cannot make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, no good can ever come from a decaying corpse that only seems to make an elite minority more powerful or more wealthy at the publics expense.


Start as you mean to carry on require that the home finances must be kept free from the buccaneering types exploitation rules, and that all parties (not just the main punch and Judy duo,’ you set them up while I dip their pockets Fagin’) must learn to serve the countries best interests before the party rules. There can be no profiteering at the seat of power, and the mechanism should now be rigged against it. Given how human nature is, by virtue of the evidence of the last eighteen months. Banks the central core of any societies life’s blood are becoming a collection of stagnant pools, and all brought to their knees by the base nature of greed and fear.


If we cannot guarantee the caliber of the character of the type of person that gets through the scanners we can build a system that cleans its own house as it goes along. A new set of rules is needed that puts our collective needs and resources beyond the capability for any singular or collective assault on the private purse. We need to bring this system under the collective will of the people and to guard it against the casual privateer or absconder. 


The speaker should be the peoples elected champion and defend the fifty one percent of the moral majority, to guard against the erosion from the corporate entity and the hard-pressed social core that will always seek to better their lot from the public purse.


Politics is on its final warning, banks are building public contempt, and MP’s are on their last legs as the public of this world watches and waits with riveted awe at the gall of the nasty little blighters.


We all used to hope that some morally upright people were naturally attracted to the powers of Whitehall and not just the self serving types that we are hearing more and more about on a daily basis. This summer recess for the west end old boys network will not change the focus of the wary publics interest but will instead galvanise the collective resolve for the next round of follies yet to be revealed. If they don’t get it right we will see a world wide collapse of the great bright hope for the future of mankind crumble with a greater devastation than the fall of Rome or the decay of the Greek democracy ever did to the world of historic man. We cannot allow them to ride the atomic bomb of oblivion to destruction, not in our name, not with our proxy.


Given the nature of the beast, where police can get away with murder (Jean Charles de Menezes), as they gave themselves power to be judge jury and executioner in the shooting in the subway incident, where an innocent man was gunned down by a mechanism driven by the follies of low brow mans neurotic  thinking the worst and taking no chances, but excuse me doesn’t a crime have to be committed before the law steps in, and who steps in when the law breaks the laws. All this in the land where it is assumed that we are innocent until proven guilty, the operative word being ‘proven’ not assumed. And its not even an isolated incident just see the more recent case of Ian Tomlinson, and it does indicate a worrying mindset behind the powers that be, that they are above the law. Do they need a gun at their head to get the point.


Knowing that MP’s are the biggest fiddlers at the public trough as they point their collective fingers at any handy scapegoats to misdirect from their own shady dealings, the unemployed, single parents, the infirm, (or as they like to call them the lazy) the homeless. They confuse the needy with the greedy, after all it is pretty hard to fiddle the system at the bottom of the pile it is so well regulated, even local authorities use James Bond style snooping devices and tactics to check your details. Must be run by a retired Whitehall spook.


Banks have bigger thieves in their ranks than any criminals in the penal system and they still cant help helping themselves and giving themselves big bonuses, not for a good job done, but for the time and effort that they put into the job, regardless of the outcome after all to them time is money.


Social workers cannot do a decent job where the welfare of children is concerned, the blatant indictment of the case of baby ‘P’ will haunt them for decades as more and more failings begin to emerge from every avenue of the diverse mechanism that is a decadent and decaying system. The saddest indictment against the child welfare services is that because of the nature of the predator that stalks our children even Barnardos has shut down all of its care homes, and the horror stories that have come out of state run ones are just to horrible to contemplate in the cold light of day.


We have the mind power, we have the technology, we possess the wisdom to devise a better system and it can become the template for the world of man as it could be, tailored to our very best, instead of undermined by our base character. The only thing we lack is the political will, for it is suicide to the present system to admit its failings and to begin the process of devising a twenty first century alternative to a decaying Dickensian system that has never delivered and can never manage the unwieldy system of government that seeks to preside over our collective needs, and is tripping up on the machinations of the greedy maggots that have invaded and undermine the systems of maintenance.


Greed and profiteering is for the private sector, and that is where it should remain, the public purse has just been hijacked by a set of nerdowells, and our hard earned has been handed to the biggest set of crooks in the land, the banks.


How come this system has never worked and has been allowed to limp along tripping over its own feet of clay without systems being devised as it grinds along to guard against previous mistakes. Or is it just that any devisable system will naturally have loopholes and can be exploited by the greedy and the tenacious mind of the avaricious.


Time to concentrate on the things that do work and have stood the test of time. Time to employ the minds that see clearer than their own greed and petty needs, time to preserve resources and to empower the right actions for the collective good. Right now in the glaring public eye of the worlds media focus. What better time for change while we are all being watched and scrutinized and criticised.

Actions speak louder than words, and deeds and character are still the formation of being.


We can rebuild you we have the technology. All yours for just six million, cheaper than a wanker’s bankers bonus.
