What is it about the condemnation of the riots that is just plan wrong? Until I read Nathaniel Tapley’s blog post An Open Letter to David Cameron’s Parents I hadn’t given it much thought but there was that nagging feeling it wasn’t straight forward.
Justly condemn the riots an rioters but consider the cause, could you have played a part? Are you responsible for supporting politicians whose hypocrisy appears to know no limit?
The damage caused by politicians outweighs the damages of recent riots and yet the venom for condemnation of our politicians fizzles out after a few weeks of finger-wagging.
We allow dangerous thieves dedicated to finding new ways to control and extract cash from our effort to feather their nests at our expense. They lie and cheat (see Tapley’s post), they abuse power and are accountable to no one. They believe in their own entitlement, moral rectitude and superiority (as one commenter states).
They say power corrupts, and evidently it does, we have seen good politicians turn to bad. It’s time to limit their time in office, it’s time to wrap them in red tape for a change.
Next time we are told a new tax is to “save the environment” lets ask them to prove it. Lets force them to demonstrate how much they believe in their own nonsense by making them accountable for it. All they have to do is pay the money back if the promise fails.
