    If you are a UK citizen  respond to 38 degrees campaign.Do not let our health service be privatised. The private companies cherry pick the easiest and simplest cases. They do not help train future doctors and surgeons etc. Even mad dog Thatcherite Norman Tebbit is worried about the privatization of health in the UK.

    I would help, but I am too busy plotting my escape from the country.

        Cags, it's not that funny. Especially if you understand the issues.

          Well you either laugh or cry, I can't laugh until I escape, so at least that gets straight to the bottom of my motives.

            I understand what you are saying Ryan. You are right. But those of us left behind will be crying into our old age. Can't believe these Condems have been voted in.

              I couldn't be any more disillusioned with the entire British political arena, and that means all parties, I can't identify a single group of people or a single person capable of running our country. They are all a bunch of unqualified (or qualified by birth right) neanderthals with very little genuine depth of knowledge who make a living twisting statistics. All of them, Conservative, Liberal Democrats, Labour. If they don't have ulterior motives they have incompetence.

              I am being asked to vote on the Alternative Vote. Despite the polling station being 50 yards from my home I will not be voting. I will be labelled no doubt by the media as 'apathetic' or 'lazy'. In truth I have absolute no interest whatsoever in changing the way that the country decides whether to have evil elitists or incompetent socialists running our affairs.

              I voted for the Liberal Democrats, by the way, in 2010. That shall be the last time that I vote in the United Kingdom. On anything.

                You should take the trip down to the voting booth.

                On your ballot paper, write 'Complete Bollocks' or draw a huge cock across it.

                It is much more satisfying - I did that the last time I voted in the UK. They count it as a spoiled ballot, and nobody can accuse you of being apathetic smile

                  I agree. There should be tick box for none of them. Western democracies start to worry when less people vote. But your idea is great.

                  Haha! Spot on mate. It might get Nick Griffin elected if everyone did that though - that's who I'd assume you meant.

                    True - that is the downside, although I long ago decided to vote for the candidate I believed would do the best job, rather than keep someone else out. I lived in Tory heartland, so my vote was always going to be wasted. Mind you, my MP was David Cameron, so you can imagine where the aforementioned cock was drawn big_smile

                    Seanorjohn - Great idea, but that is too much like common sense!

          The issues? Politics and Religion, Wealth vs Poor?

          Oh yeah, I've heard it before. lol

            You have heard many things before. But have you ever really listened?

            1. Cagsil profile image82
              Cagsilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

              I listen, always. And, when truth shows it's face, I am able to recognize it. I cannot say that for many people, simply because they are too busy thinking about themselves.

              It doesn't take a genius to see the pathetic nature that arises from humanity as a whole. The wealthy continue to strong-arm the world, while people live in streets or starve because they have no food.

              The path to peace I can see, can you?

                Sensible reply. So I will give you the benefit of doubt.

                Some of your postings led me to think otherwise.

                You mostly come across as a P....... K..... it ....a.

                  Bluntness and straight forward is how I bring what I have to the table. Most people don't like it and that would mean they don't understand me or have not taken the time to get to know me.

                  Judgment is formed, because I disagree with many people on many levels. And, I noticed you didn't answer my question.

                  Can you see a path to peace? The basis/foundation for peace to occur?

                  If you can, please do let me know what you think is the starting step. This way I know, if you and I are on the same page. wink

                    I am assuming I did not answer the q about peace.
                    So here goes.

                    The USA stops supplying weopanry and intelligence to rogue states.

                    USA stops fighting over oil and pretending it is doing good things.

      Quite understandable Ryan. Many may follow you.

    I have had a quick scan of 38 Degrees and whilst I support the causes I will need too investigate the organisation itself. I am reasonably active already in the campaign arena with a long standing no tolerance approach to social injustice.

    In principle I support you and will endeavour to be more useful without compromising existing committments.

    Good Luck.

      Thanks Aiden. You are great. Social injustice is a cause worth fighting for.

    Nothing's going to stop the NHS being privatised now. Labour were going to do it when they were in, the tories will definately do it now that there's zero opposition.

    British politics is more depressing than sitting at my computer on a friday night writing on a forum post because it's slightly more fun than a thesis.

    The NHS is the third biggest employer in the world incidentally, after the Chinese army and the Indian railroads. I got a train in India last year, they need more people.
