In the early years of the twentieth century a guy called Keir Hardie founded what is today the Labour Party. It was a party founded to represent the people, the working class. against the tyranny of the aristocracy and the industrial bosses who ruled their businesses with a ruthless efficiency.
Since that day the working class have clung to the hope that the Labour Party and their own Trade Unions would represent their interests at parliamentary level. They have been sadly disillusioned because since Tony Blair arrived, the Labour movement has been run by multi-millionaires most of whom have never done an honest day's work and would not recognise honest toil if they fell over it!
So having said that who exactly is representing the British worker? It cannot possibly be people like the Milibands, Ed Balls or Harriet Harman because they chill out in Islington which is a million miles from pits, steel works or muck and brass. They are clueless when it comes down to the nuts and bolts of industry.
Since Keir Hardie nothing and nobody has emerged to challenge the authority of government. Consequently we now have a one party state with all three major parties manipulating the system to contain any rebellion from the people. We all know that the British people want a referendum on our membership of the EU but all three major parties refuse to allow it because they would lose which brings me to the point of the post.
When all three major parties are colluding to rule the country for the benefit of influential groupings like industrialists, bankers, Bilderbergers and the European Union then just who is representing us the people?
Step forward Nigel Farage and UKIP. This is the first party to have made any inroads into the power game and the stranglehold that the puppet politicians have on British politics. In the last few years UKIP has picked up votes from all across the political spectrum as the electorate turn against mainstream politicians. UKIP could now be on the verge of a breakthrough which could eventually bring power back to Westmonster from Brussels and give 'the people' a voice once again.
The forthcoming European elections may be a marker which could measure the support for UKIP nationwide. If they do as well as predicted then the 2015 elections could be the most significant for many a year because at last the people have a party that does not represent the interests of the lobby group.
