The results have confirmed what many have suspected for a long time - that the current "First Past The Post" system of electing the UK Parliament is well past its 'sell-by' date. It is a simple mathematical fact that, e.g., only 34,348 national votes were required to elect an MP representing the Conservative Party; while 3,881,129 UKIP votes resulted in only one MP being elected! In any definition of 'democracy', that cannot be right! In the wake of the election results, a number of online petitions have been organised. One such may be found at http://action.
Of course, the conspiracy theories now abound. Normally, I am not one to give such theories much credence, but some of what I have read on social media (sometimes more accurate and truthful than the MSM!) would indicate that there is definitely a case to be answered. Stories abound of missing boxes; delayed counts; and names of candidates missing on ballot papers. It may all be the result of over-active imaginations - but with so much involved, it is surely worth a formal investigation.
This will, I hope, be my final 'political' post for a wee while. My next one is planned to be of a more moral/spiritual flavour. If you have started to check out my blog on the basis of the past few posts, please don't abandon me! I would like to think that you might find the other matters that I raise, and the information that I share, to be of interest. Of course, you won't know if you don't check it out!
