Now They Know How We Feel

What do I keep saying ? It's amazing how many different ways the Cameroonatics can find to be appalling. Take the latest revelation that even if your constituency returns a Tory MP, there's no guarantee he'll have any influence once he gets there.

Admittedly, with all the balloon heads these people have put on the A-list, being elected won't mean what it used to mean, but still, it hardly argues for a firm commitment to democratic principles and accountability when the majority of Tory MPs will be left on the kerb, in favour of a group of insiders, some of whom have never been elected to a Parish council.

Not that I have any sympathy for the excluded MPs. On the contrary, contempt for the public has been one of the defining features of the Tories. All that's happening now is that some MPs are being treated like the base, in other words like barely tolerated drones.
