MIKE FOR BOSTON & SKEGNESS

Mike moved to the Boston and Skegness constituency in 1992. He has worked in both Skegness and Boston and has raised and educated his children here and whilst he lives in Boston himself his eldest children’s relatives live in Skegness.

Mike worked for the Civil Service and has seen first-hand the destruction of the public sector. He is now self employed as a manual worker and active community volunteer.

WHY THE POLITICAL SYSTEM IS BROKEN

We don’t need another political party… We need a peaceful revolution!
Over the last 40 years, our country has been turned into a politician’s paradise and hell for the rest of us. Ordinary people have seen the slow destruction of our towns, cities and way of life. Change and decay on a scale that is only worse during wartime.
Who is responsible? See below:

Margaret Thatcher

Margaret Thatcher

  • Put public housing stock (Council housing) into the hands of the bankers via mortgages. We have never recovered from this theft.
  • Undermined British industry and encouraged corporations to send manufacturing abroad.
  • Turned Britain from a country of workers who produced social and economic value into to a country of consumers addicted to ‘stuff’.
  • She destroyed the culture of ‘public service’ replacing it with so called ‘business efficiency’. This has led to a crisis in morale and recruitment in every public service from the police to the NHS.
Tomy Blair

Tony Blair

  • Continued the policies above but also took us into a war many believe was unjustified.
  • Indebted young people and encouraged schools to persuade them away from skilled jobs and towards universities with no obvious long-term benefit to them.
  • Exposed the family to unbelievable stress and state interference, leading to struggling single parents and an epidemic in loneliness and mental illness.
  • Created a house price crisis where the average house price is over eight times the average annual salary, whilst the house builders throw up properties on green belt and agricultural land that no one can afford.
  • Started unexplained and unnecessary mass immigration and the collapse of our own birth rate, because to survive financially couples must work and can’t afford to have children.
  • Encourage the idea that ‘greed is good’.
Other Leaders

What did the rest of them do and what will the next lot do.

  • Most of the above and
  • Increased the cost of student loans.
  • Scrapped the agricultural wages board which regulated Boston and Skegness farm workers’ wages.
  • Failed to manage illegal immigration.
  • Oversaw a decline in the British road infrastructure (Pot holes)

Having wrecked our country all politicians and the whole political system can do today is waffle about made-up issues like ‘identity’ politics. They can then pretend they have an opinion to squabble over about. Thanks to 40 years of political meddling within our current political system, our country is a mess and only cooperation can sort it out.

HOW WE CAN FIX THE POLITICAL SYSTEM

Collaborate

Collaboration

When humans work together we achieve much more, just look at the space race.

Our adversarial and confrontational style of politics, ‘Punch and Judy’ as David Cameron called it, does not get the best results for our country. We believe Edward Debono’s collaborative 6 Thinking Hats method would deliver fairer and improved outcomes for us all.

No Whipping

Ban Political Whipping

We believe politicians should solely represent the people and not be controlled by their party or group.

We campaign to remove the whipping system from politics. This means that political parties and groups will no longer be allowed to force, conjole or even bully elected individuals into voting in a certain way

Bus

Real Political Change

We will need a new bus, not a new driver who thinks the existing system works.

The fix comes from having a bottom-up system that listens and politicians who wholly represent the people rather than their political party. Read below to learn how we hope to make this happen.
