Typical Politicians.

It seems that to encourage voting they are considering entering all voters in a prize draw. Read here.

It seems that 'almost 70% of people wanted a bigger say in local issues, but she said the "structures and culture" of politics "sometimes alienates them.'

Dozy politicians. The structures and culture that alienates us is the fact that politicians are totally useless and don't reflect what we want and there is virtually no difference between the main parties. We have very little choice, basically the colour of the rosette, but everything else is so similar that we can't tell the difference.

So after careful examination by the combined intellect of our wonderful leaders they decide to bribe us. I wonder why it is that slipping someone some money is seen as a valid solution? I suppose when that is your experience it is difficult to see alternatives.

Paying you out with your own money? Perhaps they have something here. At least you would get some of your rates/tax/fees/charges back if you won sort of like the lottery. Maybe it would increase your chances in the game of gettting value for money from your taxes.

I don't want a bigger say but I do want to overcome those morons who have it now.

All it would take to kill this daft idea, and perhaps to shake up the sterile centre consensus would be for everyone who turned up for their free prize on voting day to vote for any candidate other than those standing for the 3 big parties.

If only the ragbag fringes of the right and left (which includes myself) could unite around the one thing we all have in common - political committment - then the House of Commons might become quite entertaining.
