#G143* – £500M for TOO MANY POLITICIANS!

Too many mouths at the political trough

While the economy goes on shrinking, one group is thriving as never before.

Welcome to Britain’s greatest growth industry – our swelling army of professional politicians and their advisers, who now cost taxpayers an extraordinary £500million a year.

Disturbing figures obtained by the BBC suggest the political class has swollen tenfold over the past 30 years, taking the number of party hacks who draw salaries from the state to an incredible 30,000.


Army: Civil servants march on Whitehall

Indeed, in some areas an individual voter may have as many as 20 different elected representatives – including a Westminster MP, councillors, MEPs and members of a devolved regional assembly.

No wonder this country’s in a mess. Leave aside the sheer confusion, buck-passing and waste produced by this multiplying political herd, each treading on the other’s trotters as they cluster round the trough.

How can businessmen, soldiers, teachers or nurses expect any understanding from elected representatives who know nothing of the real world, but are expert only in the machinations and rewards of politics?

How can any of us plan for the future, when policies and the people responsible for them change every few months with every passing breeze of political fashion?

Worse still, as the political class grows, the quality of its membership is being constantly undermined by the parties’ obsession with political correctness.

Increasingly, candidates are chosen not for their ability but for their gender, race or sexual proclivities – a policy as insulting to minorities as it is damaging to the national interest.

So it is that the biggest and best-paid political class in our history is also the most third-rate.

What this country desperately needs is a revival of the sense that politics is not a self-serving career but a public duty.

Wouldn’t it be a good start to slash the number of paid politicians – and insist that anyone who stands for public office should have at least some experience of life outside the political bubble?

‘The arrogance and hubris of corrupt politicians
will be responsible for every drop of blood spilt
in the Wars of Disassociation, if Britain does not
leave the EU.

The ugly, centralised, undemocratic supra national policies being imposed by the centralised and largely unelected decisionmakers of The EU for alien aims, ailien values and to suit alien needs stand every possibility of creating 200,000,000 deaths across EUrope as a result of the blind arrogance and hubris of the idiologues in the central dictatorship, and their economic illiteracy marching hand in glove with the idiocy of The CAP & The CFP – both policies which deliver bills, destroy lives and denude food stocks.

The EU, due to the political idiocy and corruption of its undemocratic leaders, is now a net importer of food, no longer able to feed itself and with a decreasing range of over priced goods of little use to the rest of the world to sell with which to counter the net financial drain of endless imports.

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit
of their own agenda and greed, have done more
damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy
of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.

The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain
into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own
personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain
more than the armies of Hitler
and the Franco – German – Italian axis of 1939 – 1945.
