Parties refuse to trust voters

I see Tavish Scott of the Lib Dems has whipped his members back into line. No doubt harsh words were exchanged at anybody daring to speak their minds. The issue at question was that of giving the people of Scotland a referendum on a constitutional matter. The Nationalists have maintained for years that Scots want Independence, despite the evidence of opinion polls.

Why don't we just hold the referendum? Now. Next month. Do it and get it done with.

What are politicians so scared of? Why do the Nationalists want to rig the question and hold a referendum at an exact time of their choosing? Why do the other parties fight so hard to make sure that Scots do not have a say in the future of their country?

This is the 21st Century. The days of sending off some member of the landed gentry to far-off London to take care of our interests are long gone. We are better educated, better informed, better capable of reaching a rational decision on our own than at any time in our history.

We've seen what comes of trusting politicians - they screw us for every penny they can get, then give themselves ermine & grand titles. Politicians are intrinsically untrustworthy, or so it seems. Given all the evidence, isn't it outrageous that THEY don't trust US?

Jury Team believes in putting the whip back in the hands of the people. Politicians work for US. They've managed to twist democracy into some perverted feudal system which sets them up as our lords & masters.

No more.

A vote for Jury Team is a vote for freedom.

  1. By all means hold the referendum, but just hold it the once please...!

    My suspicion, is that the Scottish people (as a whole) will want to remain part of the UK. Its just the loudmouth Nationalists pretending that they speak for the whole country who really want independence.

    I also suspect that the disatisfaction in Scotland (which I acknowledge) is actually the same disatisfaction that many English people feel towards Westminster. We're all in the same boat actually.

    So vote Jury Team. Independents are essential in Westminster. The more the better. There have been some very close votes in the Commons over the years. Independents have the potential to make a real difference in UK politics.
