As Daniel Hannan MEP pointed out in his column in yesterday's Daily Telegraph
, the European Parliament is nothing other than a huge confidence trick designed to deliver taxpayers' funds in obscene amounts to the established EU political parties.
Arguably, even worse, in the UK we now have Tony Blair, the Prime Minister, apparently caught red-handed in selling honours while Tessa Jowell continues in his Cabinet. Even a columnist in the daily paper in Jamaica today holds Britain up as a shocking example of corruption. Read the article from this link
if you do not believe it.
Astoundingly, David Cameron, with his own deep roots in the now clearly rotten British establishment will today meet with the nation's latest shameless leader to discuss the steps they might jointly take over future funding for their individual parties, having been clearly exposed for the unacceptable methods used recently. On the agenda can only be conspiracy!
The Lib/Dems have similarly benefited from some of these abuses down the years.
The local government elections next month would seem a perfect opprtunity for the electorate to express their disgust by voting for none of the mainstream parties. But oh what sorry alternatives!!
Perhaps our new national crime agency SOCA might take its brief seriously and pursue these racketeers as seriously as other menaces to society and bring in the main political leaders to face justice. Are there enough in the main body of the party membership willing to step forth and put matters right?
A reminder of how racketeer is defined:
"a person engaged in illegal enterprise for profit"
Is not selling honours against the law? How does Blair manage to buy such expensive real estate? Does profit for the party one leads never provide personal gain?
