Who Should Replace Boris Johnson?

I don't know what the answer is. I don't blame people for not voting but it's all we've got. Maybe that's what's wrong. 

 

Our poncy style of government is antiquated and beset with archaic 'traditions' that foster a sense of undeserved entitlement and privilege. Does the House of Commons look like a suitable place of work for the 21st century? Have you seen the poor attendance at your average debate, with just a handful of MPs? It's pretty disgraceful. 

 

Let's shut it down, and keep it as a museum. Meanwhile build a decent up to date parliament building with the kind of built in tech other countries have, that can move swiftly to meet the challenges of the modern world. Let's have full time MPs who are obliged to come from the areas they represent, with no second jobs other than perhaps an annual period of secondment into a real place of employment where they can mix with the workforce and experience work as it is really lived, or just live in a community different to their own background to enhance their understanding and increase their perspective.

 

Finally, do away with the 'House of Lords' and have a second house of chosen and elected representatives who can do their job, and maybe includes a balance of some 'ordinary' people who work at the coal face; teachers, nurses, policemen, solicitors, etc.

 

Just ideas, I'm sure other people will add their own, but let's get the kind of leadership we need and deserve. 

 

Utopian nightmare

Someone once described him as a stupid person's idea of a clever person. He wrote a book about the Victorians that even the Times described as "anathema to anyone with an ounce of historical, or simply common, sense”.

not what he says but does, google him?

  • Having worked for years in finance, he co-founded investment company Somerset Capital Management, currently managing $7.6bn (£5.5bn).

  • He first became interested in the stock market aged 10, when his father invested £50 for him. He studied how his shares were performing and by 12 was attending shareholder meetings, quizzing the chairman and voting against proposals he thought were a bad idea.
