    Here in the UK we have a coalition government with in fighting

    An opposition party that helped to financially take us into a recession (and then has the audacity to question what the others finacial policy is!)

    A failed attempt to change our current voting system

    and the list goes on

      That sounds like a universal experience not just one peculiar to the UK.

        Kinda like having faith in God, or like believing in some cockamamie theory some "genius" thought up. Like, Newton didn't invent gravity, and everyone at that time understood plainly, that when throwing a rock in the air, it is best not to stand under it.

          Same thing w/ politics. Except that you throw a candidate in the air, expecting a messiah to come down, and stand right under it.

            I place no faith in men.

    We have MPs in the UK, who are punishing the poor and the sick by taking away necessary welfare benefits, whilst at the same time claiming expenses for the moats of their castles to be cleaned or for third, fourth and fifth homes which they don't even live at.  We also have a House of Lords, which is totally unelected, yet which has a right, because of their titles to make laws which will effect everyone. We also have a Prime Minister and leader of the Liberal Democrats who attended private schools and are from upper class backgrounds, so can have no understanding of real life for most of the British public.  In the UK, I still think class is the biggest barrier, but this suits MPs, so I can't see it changing any time soon.
