Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the trouble is that we often don't get a choice. In the UK all political parties buy into the "reforming" nonsense, the difference between them being the extent and speed with which they'll stick it on you. So you can't vote them out and there is no point in protesting because the frame is about "reform".

There is also a genuine problem of democratic accountability, governments only want to know what you think once every 4 or 5 years. In between time the attitude is STFU and let the professionals get on with it. And then, you have a choice between wreckage by blue or ruin by red. Some choice eh ?

keep to the Fen Causeway
