I have been a member of this fine ARRSE site now since I had the good fortune of stumbling across it on a google search. I try to get online every day, and whilst some debates can get pretty hot, I'm guilty of having a pretty short fuse myself, I have noticed an underlying theme on most of the threads concerning the UK. That theme is that most of us here are sick and tired of the Politicians that we have, greasy, in some cases seemingly overtly corrupt, most of them very shady, self serving (seen their claims and allowances!!!) and generally totally out of touch with their community. having enjoyed watching a particular fine piece of escapism last year, " the amazing Mrs Pritchard" a thought has occured Why dont we here on ARRSE start a political party? people here sometimes talk about a revolution being required in this country, well surely a legitimate political party is a far better opition.? We have such a diverse base of members (some on the far fringes of normality but hey we cant all be perfect.) with a wide wide range of experience and skills, but from almost every post I have seen on political matters, there have been very legitimate concerns comments theories and workable solutions..... an example, I dont think anyone on ARRSE supports this ridiculous pay as you drive tax, which Neu Arbeit are determined to bring in, 1.8 million fellow citizens didnt like it either, but a 1.8 million signature petition means feck all to the likes of T BLiar. In true Mrs Pritchard style ask what people really want instead and if its workable bring it in. or regardless of whether it is ideal or not, if the system isnt broke don't fix it There are more than enough people here to form a workable political party and get rid of these slimy feckers we have in power and in the wings trying to get into power. is it a workable idea or should I get the pencils and underpants out and prepare to say "Wibble!!"
