In the last week, two major energy companies have announced huge rises in gas prices, despite their massive annual profits. We have Civil Servants who can’t add up, and the education establishment has finally been caught out fudging the exam marking, requiring thousands of children to re-sit their GCSE’s. On top of that, the police are under the microscope following the Hillsborough cover-up and we have arrested five Royal Marines and charged them with murder for killing an aggressive enemy!
I don’t know what our politicians were expecting, but surely if you send troops into a war zone where they could be killed, especially when many of the enemy have donned friendly uniforms in order to murder our men, then we must expect that some of the niceties and codes of conduct will go out of the window!
Meanwhile our Government’s priority is not to tackle the obscenity of rising energy prices or to refuse to obey the EU directive to close down many of our power plants which could leave us once again short of the energy the nation really needs; oh no, they spend their time discussing MP’s pay and Gay Marriage!
It’s about time that Ministers took some responsibility and at least attempted to run the country. It would also be nice if we could return to a time when local MPs represented their constituents and were not led by their self-indulgences and personal ambitions.
As it stands we appear to have voted in a political elite composed of over privileged, chinless wonders who are residing in the place of far better qualified people, who, given the opportunity, might just achieve something for the nation, instead of themselves.
