For the Majority,
not the Minority
can't there be a party that gets 60% of the electorate's vote? We
all have different views but there are plenty of views shared in
common by at least 60% of people.
opinion polls you include the 'dont knows' - or the poll
is meaningless. So in analysing actual election results, you must
include the 'no-shows' - those who stay at home instead of
voting. They're just as important as the ones who turn out to vote.
So percentages must be based on the whole electorate, not just those
who vote. Non-voters are NOT lazy young people who can't be bothered
to get off the sofa - they're people who would LIKE to vote - if
only there was a party / candidate they could support! They in effect
DID vote - for 'none of the above'.
the 2017 snap election called by Theresa May to 'improve' her position,
but which turned out a disaster for her, the Tories were marginally
the most popular party but with just 29% of the electorate's votes.
And Labour who came second, got 27% of the electorate. No party
gets even half the electorate's support - nowhere near! This continues
the trend for the last 40 years . Is it any surprise when you look
at how out of touch ALL of Parliament's MPs are, with ordinary people?
a new party for the centre
need a populist party . A popular party, a people's
party, to represent the majority who don't identify with the establishment
parties of 'right' and 'left'. With new populist policies from the
centre, A party for the centre ground, for the political MAINSTREAM.
The BREXIT CHAOS of our 'MENTAL' PARLIAMENT
our present 650 MPs are NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE and we need a completely
past few weeks of Brexit chaos at Westminster has made our Parliament
the laughing-stock of Europe and the world. Is
it any wonder the rest of Europe, and the rest of the world, don't
know what to make of us? They
can't decide whether to laugh at our parliamentary chaos - or to
just be appalled !
BY WESTMINSTER INSIDERS TO
FORM A 'NEW' PARTY
The latest attempts
by Labour 'Insiders' at forming a new 'centrist' party will fail,
just like the SDP did back in the 1980s. Because all the politicians
involved, are exactly the same establishment figures as we already
have in Westminster - instead of what we need , which is a whole
new style of politician from OUTSIDE the establishment. We need
to drain the Westminster swamp - not move clumps of it around.
Labour are supposed
to be an opposition to Theresa May's shambolic 'government' - instead
they're fighting among themselves - Brexiters against Remainers;
female MPs against male MPs. You couldn't make it up.
Tory Home secretary Sajid Javid
"No single solution to knife crime"
We've got a
knife-crime emergency. Every week the toll of knife stab victims
mounts; and every week our knobhead politicians like Javid, come
up with another "new plan" which is going to work. Read
- a brief history
is a small, new political party - founded in 2005 and based in the
West Midlands. The idea of MAINSTREAM is to try and re-create, what
we always had up to about 40 years ago - a party capable of getting
majority support - i.e., the support of more than 50% of voters,
in an election.
Parliamentary system of first-past-the-post is not going to change
any time soon: it was confirmed by a people's vote in the
2011 referendum. We're keeping it. Right now it's not working well
- but that's not down to the system : It's down to the useless collection
of politicians, and political parties, which have taken over our
politics. They're all totally out of touch with ordinary people,
representing only powerful and rich minorities and pressure groups.
Their ideas about what's right and wrong, what's sensible and what's
sick - don't come from the grass roots or from working people -
they come from snooty intellectual think-tanks based in North London.
