    Default A new democracy

    Sure it's not just me who is never a fan of one party or another on all issues.

    I'd go for UKIP to get out of the EU or reduce immigration but I don't like their often conservative bent on social issues like gay marriage, abortion etc. I'd vote for Corbyn to improve our democracy and get rid of the monarchy and the House of Lords. I'd vote Tory on economic issues because I believe that the free market, with some regulation, is the only one that works.

    Now I have decided I'd like to vote for the Taliban on green issues, it can't be as daft as the green party, but not so sure about beheading women.

    Wouldn't it be nice if, instead of having to vote for a one party government, we could vote for which party governs each ministry?

    Exactly why governments need to devolve power. After religion, they are the cause of most wars.

    Centralisation of power does not work. The UK has demonstrated that with the anti-establishment Brexit vote.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    UKIP is about controlled immigration, not reduced immigration. They are not the same thing.

    Do they want to control immigration by reducing it? I'm pretty sure they do.

    Reducing it from uncontrolled to controlled would be a good start.

    On the plus side, you got a free mobility scooter after the inclusion of obesity in the eligibility criteria. On the minus side, you get to spend your afternoons with MF down the 'first class' day centre.

    Glad that's working out for you.
