Cameron Further Consolidates His Position
Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on December 6, 2010
Here we are again, if there was any more evidence that the Tories are still the same old Party it used to be, Cameron just proved it again, and as per usual with barefaced cheek!
A list of new Peers has been unvelied for the Lords and low and behold, it’s going to be full of his friends and donors to the party! There will be 27 new Tory peers, 15 Lib-Dem and 10 Labour. This will give the Coalition Government the majority in the House of Lords.
What annoys me about this is not just that fact he’s filling the Upper chamber (Lords) with people so he can push through anything he wants, it’s the fact Cameron said there would be change in the way Politics are done after the Expenses scandal. Yeh, lots of change, axe 50 MP’s from the House Of Commons and add Peers to the House Of Lords where they can claim £300 a day for just turning up as well as pushing through any bills he wants!
Just the same old Politics and the same old Tory Party. Nothing has changed, it’s still business as usual in Westminster! The Tory’s are just consolidating their power, just like any Labour did and like any other Party would with the system the way it currently is.
Which brings me to the question, Why do we not have an elected upper House? It is the second decade of the 2000’s and we still have an upper house that can be filled with anyone by the Party in control, has 26 Bishops from the Church of England in there as well as Life peers, it’s still like the early 1900’s in the Lords. The name gives it away doesn’t it?
There should be an elected upper House, elected by the people! I’m not sure what kind of system to offer up to achieve that, I’d have to think about that, but it’d be a lot better and simpler than the current Lords which has 741, and will soon be 794 with the new additions!
This whole situation just shows me that the whole system is still bent and open to abuse and needs to change. We still have Politicians that think they have a right to run the country the way they see fit and businessmen that can buy their way in to a legislator to influence Policy and Law.
What do I have to say or do to make things change? Or, more importantly, what will the politicians have to say or do to make the vast majority of people of their arses’ and open their eyes to what’s going on? It took an Expenses scandal to get that system fixed, what will it take to change the full system? Do the people only complain when their money is being misused? If that’s the case they’re doing it every day of the week with other things!
Come on then… get angry and change things, they wasted billions on Military hardware they never delivered. Millions on rubbish for the MOD, Millions on red tape in the NHS and even more on other Government departments! Billions on bailing the Banks out and Millions on giving themselves perks! The expenses scandal may have passed but they’re still throwing your money away!
