How Can Mps Represent Working People When So Many Of Them Make A Profit From The Property Market?

Recommended Posts

Given that it's not a really a democracy there is no issue of representation. We get three parties or people, chosen for us to vote for to make us feel like we're involved when we're not. Day by day they're reducing our standard of living through inflation, they represent the banks not us. Would you vote someone that is making you poorer and banks richer if you had a choice. Until they're chased on the streets for their incompetence we won't get an LVT, they got everyone sucking on the property teet.

MPs represented the median voter perfectly. The median voter thought that rising house prices would make them richer. The MPs thought that house prices would make them richer. The democratic representatives represented. End of.

if this place has taught me one thing it is that our so called representatives and public servants are the exact opposite of what they purport to be.

black is indeed white in ponziland and we are through the looking glass

this is such a beautiful island it is a disgrace how badly it is run, lions lead by donkeys all over again

How can members of this parliament represent working people when so many of them make a profit from the property market?

These days they don't even represent the best interests of the UK.

...when these people are so thick...you must not blame them...but you should blame the people who voted for them ... :rolleyes:

Really?

You still don't get it?

They are all the same and they aren't trying to help you.

I have lived through a decade when the blues could do what they wanted and a decade when the red could do the same and look at us now.

so obvious it is embarrassing.

They can't. Most humans (aside from Ghandi, Mandela, Buddha and a few others) are emotionally unable to put aside their vested interests.

And the politics of Mandela and Ghandi amounted to self-interest too.

....and now they are calling for £10k pay rises at the worst possible time when in the next breath tell everyone else to expect to live on less, they never do as they say, they think one thing and speak something quite different.........all most of them care about is themselves, their self importance and egos, their next job and how much is in their own back pocket. ;)

Working people are so thick and insular they deserve all they get IMO.

Sadly its true, anyone who has worked in a public facing job can attest to that (software tech support in my case). It is honestly shocking how thick and uninformed the average "man on the street" is. People on here represent the top 1% of critical thinking ability. Think about what that means - 99% of the population have less analytical ability than wonderpup ;) .

MPs don't represent ' working people'.

They represent land/property owners, hedge funds, private equity and the Citeh.

Same as in most other corrupt so called democracies.

They cannot.

If we had "none of the above" they would begin to realise how much they are hated. Give them a bottle of whiskey and a revolver, and hope however unlikely they do the decent thing, for all of our sakes.

The Milliband family is no slouch when it comes to interesting property strategies...

Amateurs.

Dodging tax in this country whilst you're still in this country is a mugs game.

If only their kin had been more like Camoron's.

Used to think this was the case.

“The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness”

A Very English Deceit: The Secret History of the South Sea Bubble Malcolm Balen (2009)

But is it just the Conservatives or is it everybody? Me? I believe secure, suitable, adequate housing is a human right. But then, I'm often called an idealistic idiot. :huh:

Our MP's can not and will not ever work for the public good, as that would negatively affect their own pockets, pride and power status. MP's need to be MP's only - no other jobs - no seats on boards - no corporate interests and severe consequences for family insider trading, profiteering. I would quite happily agree to a substantial pay rise for MP's if this was the case.

<_<

There's no reason why they coudn't be slightly adapted to perform the functions of MPs - receive instructions and press a button to vote.

Recite prerecorded speeches they've been given as well as use standard phrases during interviews.

So true the only other option is to eject the monarchy and introduce a direct democracy like Switzerland. However with the military swearing allegiance to the Queen I somehow doubt that will happen...
