Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the most corrupt of them all, Brown and Cameron aren't fixing broken Britain, they are all talk

Dear All

People are deeply pessimistic about the state of Britain today.


Because Britain is rotten to the core!

A Populus poll for the Times found people believe society is broken and headed in the wrong direction.

The theme of this blog is that Britain is a corrupt society.

Post after post highlights this theme.

This has been caused by the social and political networks that operate in this country.

In the poll three fifths of people say that they hardly recognise the country they are living in and unsurprisingly 42% say they would emigrate if they could.

This flags up multiple issues that have been badly mismanaged by the Labour Government from immigration to lack of social justice.

70 per cent believe that society is now broken

68 per cent say people who play by the rules get a raw deal

82 per cent think it is time for a change

These figures spell bad news for the Labour Party in the run up to a Westminister General Election.

Although Cameron has used the theme of broken Britain, he is remarkably lite on solutions other than soundbytes.

It is not just the political institutions that are seen as broken but also the numerous unaccountable NGO that have flourished under New Labour.

Organisations set up to help the public but in reality don’t.

So, what does the poll mean that so many are disenfranchised?

It spells trouble as people turn away from main stream parties towards parties such as the BNP.

The gap between rich and poor is at its widest for 40 years, year on year both the Tories and Labour have never addressed the problems of social inequality and natural justice.

After all, what good is law if you can’t access it to protect your rights?

What good is law when human rights abusers don’t get punished?

What good is law when Government makes it so vague rich people escape justice?

After the Westminster election don’t expect solutions to broken Britain as Labour and Tories only address symptoms, not causes.

The same people discriminating will still be in power, the only change they will be pledging loyalty to a Tory Government.

Yours sincerely
