Say No to the Big Three

# It needs a token webpage as a focal point, no forum, no blog, just a short statement in simple wording, in three lines or less.

# It needn’t be “run” or maintained – the message either goes viral or it doesn’t – depends solely on whether you’ll spread it or not.

#  It needs a striking logo which people would be prepared to put on their pages.  If this one is too garish, then send another to our email [top right].  Why not use your own logo anyway?

Let’s start this ball rolling.

    Sorry James, from my blog@

    “Whilst that call is understandable, what seems to have escaped the notice of those making that call is that with our present system of democracy it matters not who you vote for as all the elite of any political party are interested in is power – personal power, the privileges that that brings, the chance to ‘grandstand’ on the world stage, etc – nothing else, least of all the best interests of the country they are supposed to serve. Neither would it make any difference were a similar call to vote for independent, ie non-aligned, candidates be put into practise as the present ‘democratised dictatorship’ pattern of government would continue. Why is that contention is so hard for people to understand? Why are people so apathetic that they continue to allow themselves to be used as mere pawns in a political game of chess? In that game the pieces (us) remain the same, it is just the hands that move us about that change; and unfortunately for us those hands have exactly the same ‘game plan'”

    Anyone but the big three? The Greens? The BNP? Even, presently, Ukip? Heaven forbid!

      What’s wrong with UKIP?

        It’s better not to steer people in any direction. Let them find out about the alternatives themselves and vote with their brains engaged rather than doing what they’re told.

        Personally, if there was a UKIP, I might vote for him/her but that’s up to UKIP to have a candidate in my constituency. There are disgruntled Labour and disgruntled LibDems too, not just our own demographic here. It needs to appeal to the whole community of any persuasion but knowing they don’t like the last 15 years.

    The corruption of the political process in the UK has occurred on many levels. The three main parties are not worthy of office or fit for purpose.

    The present batch of scoundrels, puppets and hangers on represent not the interests of the nation but the interests of a ruthless supranational global finance/power elite and themselves. They are spoon fed “sustainable” “collectivist” policies via think tanks and lobbyists their ideology and dogma is quite deliberately leading us to disaster.

    Doing nothing is going to lead us into a very nasty place indeed so is not an option. Do we have time to wait for an election or will a fait accomplis be delivered before that ?

    How about adding something along the lines of “Take Britain Back Governemnt By The People For The People Field Your Own Non Affiliated Candidates Fire The Status Quo”

    As an example of the rot Cameron, Gordon Brown, Ed Miliband and Tony Blair Office are all off to Davos together.

    One can but hope for an avalanche.

    James – I think people might get a bit confused about why the ‘G’ is yellow and the ‘3’ is red. It took me a few minutes to figure it out. It indicates that that the G3 is saying something rather than it just being political colours.

    Sorry to be a fly in the ointment but if this is aimed at Thicky McThick from Thickland then spoon feeding is what is required. No thinking necessary – just a very clear message.

      So we change it – easy peasy. I’ve no opinion one way or the other on that – only on settling on something reasonable that we can put on our sites and write about occasionally.
