I’ve not really formulated my thoughts but I’m thinking along the lines that engaging in conventional politics is entering into negotiation and bestowing an undeserved legitimacy on the current political agenda.
David Cameron and Nick Clegg have their positions of power and are abusing their positions of power based on outright lies – deliberate deceptions. Instead of engaging with them and their excessively offensive policies shouldn’t they be rejected outright as illegitimate? Instead of engaging in their discourse, shouldn’t it be an outright rejection? Shouldn’t the response to attempts to destroy the NHS, unnecessary austerity, quantitive easing continuing to fill the pockets of rich bankers and traders, militarism and invasions be far more radical?
