HOLYROOD, SHIP OF FOOLS, PART 1

I really don’t want to denigrate our tribunes of the people, but I do despair that half the time they don’t understand what they do…

In my opinion, one of the ways of connecting the population with those who would govern them is to go back to the principle of a smaller society, not the big society that Cameron so naively proposed. We need a geographic connection between the governors and the governed; those in charge must be directly answerable to the electorate. You want those who provide services to do so locally.

THERE'S ALWAYS AN ELEVENTH HOUR...

Looking back over the past weeks and gathering my thoughts about the referendum campaign, I try to marshal some of the feelings, reactions and thoughts that have created in me such a profound depression.

I guess the second “debate” was the principal catalyst for depression.

Oh, what a fifth rate war we had - two shouty men - and an audience with a cumulative IQ of 90. That really summed up everything for me. 

Who won? Who cares?

On second thoughts, perhaps those of us who still are capable of impartial thought could salvage something from the aftermath of this public train wreck.
