Part 1 set the scene with a bit of fun.
Part 2 made the case for ‘working together’.
Of course, that was never going to be the end of the article because it then begs the question of how. Without offering a means to accomplish working together the message is just, well-meaning rhetoric.
Part 3 will elaborate on that message and will supply a method.
We must achieve the advantages of working together, of co-operation, of consensus, without detriment to our Democracy.
A revolution is needed in two ways. We desperately need to sweep away the stale and corrupt parties of Labour, the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats. They have all deceived the electorate in so many ways, holding their employers in contempt while they mismanage and waste the assets and potential of our country, thus depriving us of a thriving and healthy Democracy. Very little can be said in support of the Left-Right confrontational politics we have had to endure for such a long time.
But there should also be a revolution in the way we approach politics and the workings of political parties. Where is the innovation and imagination in how we tackle this need for change? Nowhere to be seen. The alternative parties are going about their business in the same old way. Setting out their stalls and trying to attract support as if they were the only ones who had the answers to the countries woes. It will not be enough in the coming struggle for our country.
Our democracy, our culture and our freedoms, are all under attack. Shouldn’t people come together in times like this? Isn’t this a struggle for our freedom? Are we underestimating the danger we are in?
Wake up and look at the bigger picture. The rogue Ideologies were set out in Part 1, and none of them can be ignored. To fail will eventually deliver us all to Totalitarianism, and you know that is true! As one UKIP Daily contributor identified, their legs can be kicked away. Their legs are their support as in Labour, the Conservative and their ‘familiar’ the Liberal Democrats.
Working together has added value, not at first perceived. The two Main Parties cannot openly ‘work together’. That would certainly not do, spoil the fun and sport of manipulating the poor delusional electorate? There is a unique and untouchable quality in ‘working together’.
‘Political fantasy!’ as one comment to Part 2 understandably stated. And here’s the rub; it is crucial that political parties stand for what they believe in upholding their identity and integrity, otherwise what is the point!? To co-operate and maintain a democratic choice will be a balance, but in the coming struggle there will only be two possible outcomes!
Let’s put that to one side for the moment and consider another important point.
How do we communicate with the electorate? There will be no help from the MSM! The main communication links are online, public meetings and posting literature through doors. All forms of promotion are important, but these are the most effective.
For the first two, attention has to be solicited. People have to want to visit your sites or go to your meetings. This may be less effective than we think. Do many hunt out a political website or go to public meetings? Probably not.
The third option is unsolicited. There is no request, the Leaflet or Pamphlet drops onto the doormat. This is putting out information direct to the electorate and is still the most popular and effective form of canvassing. Information will win this struggle, opening eyes and persuading. Circulars bypass the MSM and are impervious to online sabotage. The challenge is to encourage the recipient to read the literature.
At the last General Election UKIP had a policy of putting ‘Country before Party’. What happened in some constituencies was that everything was given to the enemy, not just their enemies but the enemies of the country. Put your country first, but please let that mean being humble enough to fight the common enemy with those who are also fighting hard, and have similar values.
Returning to the need for identity and political choice: unless party politics can escape the straightjacket of tribalism and confrontation it will be doomed to a stunted version of its true potential. They will play the game of continual conflict, which will damage this country as it has done for over four decades.
A new order, a revolution, is required that puts the electorate at the lead and demands that politicians are accountable to their employers, the electorate. Accountability must also be the hallmark for all of the services that are financed by our money, public money.
After all the lies and deceit and incompetence there must be no compromise or tolerance of the old parties and exposure and prosecutions should follow. To forge this new order in our society, Common Ground must be sought. The areas that all can agree on. No details of policy, but basic beliefs to which all the Alternative parties, can relate. A fair voting system, independence, accountability, one law for all, and more.
Information concerning that Common Ground can then be distributed with names and contact details for all those groups and parties that endorse that information. There cannot be any bias and must be non-partisan. This literature in the form of say Pamphlet can then be delivered to every household in the country as a concerted effort by all involved.
But, of course, there will be one thing that will be done, and that will be the important point of this initiative. The Pamphlet will persuade voters not to vote for the corrupt parties that have got this country into such a terrible mess.
The Pamphlet can be called COMMON GROUND and we can all be called
We will strive to bring sanity back into UK Politics. And when we have achieved our victory, then we will deal with those legless Ideologues!
