This is an excellent article from the Telegraph, highlighting comments from former UK, Prime Minister, John Major. Check it out!

‘Truly shocking’ that the private-school educated and affluent middle class still run Britain, says Sir John Major – Telegraph.

Personally, I support John Major’s views. In my mind, the UK Conservative Party needs to return to One Nation Conservatism. 

A UK Conservative Party run by the privileged for their wealthy minority chums will not gain enough popular support to win the the next election outright, in my view.

Any thoughts?

  2. Dr Alf and Sir John Major are right, but “One Nation Toryism” and, for that matter, representation of anyone earning less than £250,000 gbp a year, has been a mirage for a very long time.

    How this is to change under the present system is frankly beyond me which suggests that barring radically different approaches to Governance just short of revolution, there will be no change.

    Any pretense that the UK is a meritocracy or that ordinary people have a voice in how they are governed is precisely that,pretense.

    This is why so many people choose not to vote and have no faith in politicians.

    They are just beginning to realize what I came to see many years ago from the age of 17 which is that the system is a rigged play with actors reading their lines all controlled by one theater director, who is in fact a puppet controlled by someone else who isn’t even in the theater.
