Communism would appear to be the ideal but as George Orwell put it 'some animals are more equal than others. I'm not even sure what socialism is, everybody seems to have their own perception but it smacks of diluted communism designed to less offend American sensibilities. So what else is there? Democracy? I fail to see anything democratic about democracy, especially when opinion is so divided. Majority rule and minorities suffer as there is no compromise, you simply win or lose.
A further nail in the coffin of democracy is the stunts politicians pull to give themselves an edge. Thatcher started a war on one occasion and moved constituency boundaries on another. There wasn't even a charade of fair play. Trump and May are both in power despite the majority of the people voting against them. I do hate capitalism and exploitation used to maximise profits for one or two fat cats whilst employees have to take second jobs or work all the hours God sends in order to eke out a living. Governments won't tax these parasitic leeches that rape the resources of the nation, who else will pay for their campaigns.
Seeing the behaviour of politicians in the House of Commons reminds me of playground bullies. The schoolboy jeers and cat-calling is a disgrace. And what the hell is this filibustering all about. I saw an example where a Tory politician just kept talking nonsense in order prevent a speaker proposing amendments to a health bill. It was obvious what he was doing why was it allowed. I'd have punched him in the mouth.
In the main politicians are - in my opinion - self-serving rodents who don't give a screaming shit about Joe Public just as long as they further their careers and exploit the loopholes in legislation. So back to the question in hand, what is my political allegiance? Ask me again when voting isn't just a matter of picking the lesser of evils.
