Dear Westminster
After your expenses scams paid for in its entirety by the British taxpayer failed, I find it extremely ironic and frustrating that you have decided to give yourselves yet another pay rise this year.

And then you wonder why people accuse you of being out of touch with reality? Then you wonder why people refuse to vote?

It's very simple. It's because you're a bunch of two-faced hypocrits that has had far too much of a good thing for far too long.

Please don't even try and justify your unneccassary perks, unneccessary bonus, and unreasonable wage increases by donating it to charity.

You see, when you do this, it is ultimately us, the honest British tax payers who ends up footing the bill for your "generous" donations.

You're ridiculous policies over the years have successfully destroyed communities, industries and the very essence of what once made Britain the industrial powerhouse that it was.

In order to help the country, why not take a leaf out of the book of the millions of civil servants and private sector businesses and follow suit.

I suggest part-time working, pay cuts just for starters. But it might, just might, help you to understand why we, the people of this country are increasing annoyed by the goings on in our so-called democracy.

The sad truth is that you may as well be based on Mars, given how out of step you are with the honest hard working and downright fed up electorate.

Stop paying out money that you don't have, stop making promises that you can't keep and Start giving power back to the people.

No, this doesn't actually mean a whole host of consultancies, quangos and yet more layers of micromanagement. It means actually working in the interests of the country.

You are spending MY money on things I don't want, don't need and don't see the point of.

If I wanted someone to do that for me, I would find myself a wife.

You can't justify not voting.
No vote - no complaint.

Yes it is that simple - be part of the solution or the problem - your choice.

Trouble is none of them are really worth your "X"
A mate of mine had the idea there should be a "non of the above" box on ballot papers.
If that one "wins" then they all have to go away and come back with better leaders and policies and we all have another go.
Until someone gets it right.
Eventually, we should get something worth our votes that way.

Yeah, I know it'll never work practically. but it's a nice idea.

I agree with the None Of The Above option.
But not voting is not an option.

Sorry if my letter was misinterpreted - definitely not a justification not to vote, more a general grievance about the fact that our "democracy" isn't really that democratic!

Heaven forbid we end up going down the route of America and start judging our politicians in the same contemptable way that our so-called pop stars reach the big time.

Surely there's got to be a way of improving things? (That doesn't involve Mr Fawkes and barrels of gunpowder!)

It's already

It's called a spoiled vote.

Just go and spoil the vote - it's a counted vote, and effectively says "None of the above."

However, to vote, means to be on the electoral role - something I don't trust these Orewellian authoritarians with.

This will be the first election since I have been of age, that I
won't be voting in.

I simply don't trust them to know any more about me that they already do.

Oh, I could conspiracy theorise for hours...
...well, a good 45 minutes at least.
