DECEIT AIN'T NEAT!

Those who sought election into that famous place

Failed and still fail to see the positions that they embrace

In the rich repository of a nation's right and clear intent

To rule itself and not be deceived by what was never meant.

 

Temporary custodians of  Parliament - nothing more or less,

They take their power from the people, but you'd never guess

From the way they presume to sign away what's not theirs to give,

To influence beyond these shores that tells us how to live.

 

Never - until it was forced upon them - did they ask the nation:

Vote - and we will all agree to comply with the situation.

Yet despite the decision duly reached, they didn't act as one

To ensure the task was taken up and the deed itself was done.

 

It's just as well they weren't around to deal with World War Two;

Best not to imagine what might have become of the likes of me and you!

You need to change the Westminster system and emulate the modified Australian version. Your mess would never occur here.

If we vote for something Parliament is duty-bound to carry it out. True democracy......

VG Mark. I don't think we've ever had such a motley crew. Boris on one side; Jezza on the other; the silly bitch from the LD's sticking two fingers up at 17.5m people. Basically it's a bloody mess.
