    Default Vote for option 4 or more.

    Neighbours,

    Are we-the-people tied 'til death do us part', to the present political system?

    Whichever political colour you think yourself, are you one of those who thinks political change is beyond you?


    ADVERTISING




    In the 2005 General Election (GE) many of 'us' did not bother voting...
    Garston-45% did not vote.
    Riverside-58% " " ".
    Walton-55% " " ".
    Wavertree-49% " " ".
    West Derby- 53% " " ".
    [source-BBC]

    Given that the next GE is an important one for democracy here and across Europe. What can be done?
    What can we-the-people do?
    There is 'power2010' which asks for the public to submit ideas for change, these ideas to be put to all Prospective Parliamentery Candidates (PPCs) and to ask them each to 'pledge' to bring much needed change about.

    I, on the other hand, wish people to consider voting for smaller partys and local Independents. I put this forward to both engage with those who do not have the voting habit AND to change the make-up of Parliament.
    Who has the answers to our present problems?
    The ones that were all too busy taking care of their own interests to care?
    [this includes all that are at present in Parliament]
    Harry Potter?
    The time has come, I say, for we-the-people to take responsibility for all that has befallen us and by doing so realise that the answers to these problems TOO are ours.
    (we SHALL pay).
    Given the large proportion of Liverpulians that as yet do not vote and all those for who this next GE will be their first chance to vote. No sitting politician has a majority to match their number. ALL is up for grabs.

    Are you tied to this present political system?

    It's certainly overdue for a clean sweep.

    go forth and multiply

    That you constantly
    affirm your honesty
    and misdeeds you decry
    to this is our reply

    Go Forth and Multiply
    go forth and multiply

    Whichever we choose
    we are the ones that lose
    from all blame do you fly
    now this is our reply

    Go Forth and Multiply
    go forth and multiply

    That you have often said
    that you are underpaid
    does more than patience try
    and this is our reply

    Go Forth and Multiply
    go forth and multiply

    If you see this as a job for life
    to employ your issue and your wife
    this your plan has gone awry
    for this is our reply

    Go Forth and Multiply

    though it's the public purse
    you say that you nurse
    it's your savings that magnify
    to this we too reply

    We fight wars of choice
    in which we've no voice
    though our children fight and die
    take this as our reply

    Go Forth and Multiply

    Democracy will set us free
    from your plutocratic spree
    in bankers hands our futures lie
    they also get this reply

    Go Forth and Multiply
    go forth and multiply

    There is one last thing
    the reason we sing
    as Britons we you power deny
    Forn this is our considered reply

    Go Forth and Multiply!!!
