    The Independent newspaper says it all

    Post by papa_umau on Thu 05 May 2011, 11:42 am

    I have put this posting in the rip-off section simple because the voters of Britain have been getting ripped off by the big two for far too long. Their need to hang on like grim death to the unfair first-past-the-post, ( FPTP ), system of voting is now so obvious that it is sticking out like a sore thumb.

    If you vote YES in the referendum today you will be getting rid of the people who think they have easy lifetime jobs in politics due to the very poor share of the vote that virtually guarantees them these easy seats.

    Make a change as change is now within your grasp !

    See THIS

    You know it is the right way to go !

    Thanks for that Paps. I voted YES yesterday but even I was not too sure about the AV system.

    I feel better now.

    Totally unbelievable and shocking that they voted to keep the status quo !

    I think that nowadays many people will do anything to avoid more change.

    The successful NO vote was a plea for less disturbance in their lives I think !

    I suppose that that can be understandable too.

    I think that Brits just want a quiet life these days.

    HEY.... that's MY favourite saying ! Very Happy

    But anyway, it does look as if you might be right there as many of the ordinary people in Britain are now just too tired to fight any more.

    When we see the same old story time and time again and the fat-cats continuing to win without effort it is no wonder that some Brits start to feel a bit defeated.
