At last, someone’s come up with a clean, decisive system for holding elections. The way it works is everyone has a vote, and then the management of British Airways and a judge decide the result. They’ve tried this method with the ballot for a strike amongst cabin crews, who voted 7,482 to 1,789 in favour. […]Read more →
This post was originally posted as a comment to the previous article:Â “Britain’s New Politics: The Clameron Government”.
That was a totally biased and negative article, and one that fails to mention some of the significant and excellent reforms/policies that are coming, many of which might well be considered â€œLeftâ€ and many which might never have […]Read more →
This was written (and amended as the day unfolded) on the day David Cameron became Prime Minister, for The Independent, but didn’t go in the paper.
The mayhem of the last few days seemed as if it would go on and splendidly on. Iâ€™m still half-expecting that by tomorrow morning the Lib-Dems will be holding talks […]Read more →
Though we are impartial at TMP, we have to admit that Nick “Calamity” Clegg has done well. Before the leadership debates less than 10% of the public thought he could be prime minister. He had to plaster a picture of himself next to St Vince Cable on the Lib Dem battle bus just for Joe […]Read more →

Gawd bless Dave.
HisÂ starting election speech back in April was filled with inspirationalÂ references from JFK to Barack Obama, he asked the Great British public to join him in the next UK government. Beaming with pride, he presented an expensive looking hardback manifesto showing that this was a “serious” party for Britain. The polls in April were […]Read more →
I make no bones about the fact that I am disillusioned with politics. I know I’m not alone in feeling this way but I had a real dilemma in writing this post. Do I spread my discontent or just leave everyone to make up their own minds?
I overcame my apprehension because I don’t like lemmings. […]Read more →
A personal friend of TMP, Cormac Hollingsworth, who is also a Labour candidate has been attacked by a British National Party supporter whilst campaigning in Bermondsey on Monday 3rd May.
Cormac Hollingsworth was leafleting an estate on Monday evening when he was punched three times in the face and kicked. Meanwhile the attacker kept up […]Read more →
“Iâ€™m not into politics.Â I donâ€™t understand it. It doesnâ€™t affect my life. Why should I vote?”
Those words were blurted at me after the very mention of â€˜General Electionâ€™ to a random young passer-by. It doesnâ€™t take a genius to realise that the level of apathy towards politics and its workings is sky high amongst […]
