It's all right, it's not one of those quizzes that
tells you which party's views you most associate with,
it was a question that was emailed to me by a visitor
to this site.
He added, "The Tories and Liberals would have
backed up the Illegal wars on Iraq and Afghanistan.
Look at the warmongering Tories who took us into War
for a few contractors on the Falklands-Then Paddy Ashdown
a military Buff man who would have done it too. Why
keep on attacking and discrediting NLP when you don't
have resolutions your self?"
It was a fair question which I thought deserved a reply,
which was as follows:
Thank you for taking the time to drop me an email.
I'm certainly not a Tory, but Labour are in government
and so they get the flack. I have also registered theconservativeparty.org.uk
and theliberaldemocrats.org.uk to deal with those parties
appropriately as well, time permitting.
"Why keep on attacking and discrediting NLP when you
don't have resolutions your self?"
I don't always have the answers, especially as NL have
messed things up so much. I do remind readers in some
of my articles that I do not support any mainstream
party - that there is a false left/right paradigm that
offers the illusion of choice.
Unfortunately, like you hinted at, big corporations
are really in charge - bankers, arms manufacturers,
rebuilding contractors, Big Pharma, self-interest groups
posing as charities, etc.
I think all the main parties are rotten because they
all more-or-less go along with this while disregarding
what is good and right for the people.
Examples: warmongering, globalism and political correctness.
What would I do? What can I do other than expose the
corruption and try to teach people what politics is
really all about and encourage them to be more proactive?
We don't have a gun pointed at us to force us to vote
for a main party, but most people are lost in a 'them
vs us' tribal mindset when it comes to Labour and Tory.
Then no matter who gets elected, the majority just tends
to let them get on with messing things up for four or
five years without ever confronting them about what
matters to them.
This has to change now more than ever.
Thanks again for your email.
