So the MPs expenses saga just runs and runs.
What is surprising about it is how surprised people are about it. But then I would say that, wouldn’t I? It’s elementary anarchism: a representative, political class sooner or later starts putting its own interests before the interests of the people they are supposed to “represent.” This is exactly what happened during the tail end of John Major’s government. Only now, all the main parties have their snouts in the trough.
We shouldn’t be thinking about who to vote for in order to punish them. We should be trying to work out how to run our society without a political class!!!!
Which is actually, when you think about it, quite a hard thing to do…. Fortunately here in South Wales, the Cardiff Anarchist Bookfair is on hand with some much needed inspiration on this and many other pressing issues facing society today ;)……. See you down there!!!
