When you are having a good time it's easy to think it must be the present government and when you have a bad time it must be the present government.......blah blah, the fact is we are just figures and numbers to them wether useful ones or part of the problem.
Saying you support one party or the other and trying to pretend 'your party is best' is just small minded crap in my opinion..........not one party ever has or ever will be 'good' for everyone. It's always about winners and losers, that's how capitalism works. We can't all have wealth, that would not work.
I don't celebrate any death in history apart from people like hitler, idi armene etc.........thatcher was just a strong talking leader with slightly more unsavory policies than some...........too much fuss is being made of her, she doesn't deserve it or a state funeral, a respectful one yes, but that is all.
Most grown ups stop blaming other people for their misfortune, but you can reasonably generalise that a political party might not be acting in the best interest of your family, industry or area, etc.
This whole idea that we are just numbers plays to the Orwellian doom mongers. Politicians are just human beings. The MPs in the commons and the knobs in the Lords are a small number, we have all our local councils and MEPS, etc. as well, there is a chance to get involved at grass roots level anywhere you live.
Besides, we are all politically active at some level, even if that is decrying politics as pointless. Those who choose to get behind a party they believe in are no more small minded than anyone else who might sit on their sofas writing the whole thing off.
You don't need to think your party is the best at all, nor do you need to be naive enough to think your party's policy would be the best for all. You can change your party by getting involved, and if you choose to have nothing to do with politics you can sit and shout about how they are all this or that and nothing to do with you. Big deal.
Whether or not we can all be 'wealthy' or not is one thing, but we can all have a good quality of life within the society we have here in the UK, using a mix of systems rather than Capitalism alone. Like most states.
