Direct Democracy Comment

Typical, patronising, judgemental Tory slams those who use food banks

Former Tory MP Edwina Currie, who decimated the UK egg farming community across the UK in 1988 with her 'I know better than the scientists' attitude, has elected to give us further insight into the Tory mind set. Completely voluntarily and without a single hidden mic or camera, Edwina lays bare the thought processes and attitudes required so as to fulfil the Tory Party's membership criteria.

“For the life of me I can’t see how giving someone a tin of soup when they are suffering from a mental illness or if they’ve got debt problems is going to contribute in any long-term way to solving their problems."

Edwina you top-spinner! The tin of soup is an emergency short-term measure, supplied by charity food banks to feed the vulnerable and jobless because your former party's current boss [David Scameron] is pushing them into debt, homelessness and suicide [via Bedroom Tax, Council Tax and great social injustice]. The tin of soup is for eating and is not intended to be a means to finding long-term employment but evidently, enjoying living in detachment from those who are focused on merely surviving gives you the most surreal ideas as to the purpose of the most basic items - such as a tin of soup!

Councils are now criminalising the homeless

“If people have got into debt they should be asking themselves ‘Why did I get into debt and what did I do that was stupid to get into debt and what can I avoid doing in the future? How do I actually take control of my life so I am not in this situation?"

Edwina you blatant propagandist! People are 'stupid' enough to get into debt because when they are vulnerable [which is not a crime remember?], Tories such as yourself alienate and punish them [in line with Tory tradition]. Your mate 'Dave' takes their money to fund criminal banks [that no one actually needs] while giving approx. £110 M of tax payer money to fund the rape and murder of children across Syria [courtesy of the FSA and never mentioned by the BBC], while letting people 'know' that companies such as 'you know who search engine' pay 1% tax - when the truth is that they actually pay only 0.1% tax!

People are 'stupid' enough to get into debt because they continually choose to either stick their heads in the sand or to vote for psychopaths like you, instead of using their existing freedom and power to vote now for self empowerment through legitimate direct democracy [as you know]

"What they [her Grandparents] all realised is that difficult times do come and that what you have to do in the good times is to put a little bit of money to one side to make sure that you have got that as support.”

Edwina you unrealist! During your's and your Grandparent's time, you had a wage and a living standard that enabled for you to save, while you yourself had your expenses paid for [and more] by the tax payers who you now abandon and deride. Up until 2010, many of your colleagues actually stole tax payer's money [via fraudulent expenses claims] and even though this was criminal, only three of them went to prison. In these financial circumstances, even the most desperate junkie could save a fortune!

“I get very, very troubled at the number of people who are using food banks who think that it is fine to pay to feed their dog, their dog is in good nick and beautiful but they never learn to cook, they never learn to manage and the moment they have got a bit of spare cash they are off getting another tattoo.”

Of course Edwina! The vast majority of vulnerable and jobless people ALWAYS do ALL of these things don't they! You wouldn't by any chance be trying to be divisive and to further divide our already highly-fractured society would you? If so, you should know that these are the exact same principals of racism but, being played-out against the poor instead but even so, your statement demonstrates that in principal you probably are as racist and imperialist as you are classist. After all, you were a Tory MP!

Voting for direct democracy outside a general election

Direct Democracy - Audio

It is up to us, the people [not the politicians] to use the power that we have always had, to choose to implement direct democracy as soon as possible.

This is not a protest campaign.

In accordance with Magna Carta Article 61 and with UN UDHR Article 21 and with all of the democratic principals up-held by the UN [which the UK has signed-up to], the people already have the lawful right to reform to direct democracy - even outside a general election.
