I thought this was appropriate right now!
Anybody who believes that any political parties represent them, who fall for any of the rhetoric, is fooling themselves.
Politicians represent power and wealth. Nothing else matters. We are all merely pawns in their games. They take the electorate as fools, lie, throw them scraps, talk up the partisan hatred, and put spin on all their actions to hide their true intent.
When understanding where they come from and what they stand for it is easy to see their intent.
a. Most political parties where formed by the wealthy to protect the interests of the wealthy – Tories, Whigs, Republicans and Democrats.
b. Some political parties are little more than pressure groups. They were formed on the basis of one single aim – The Green Party, UKIP.
c. The Labour Party came out of the Trade Union Movement and was formed to raise the standards and conditions of working people.
