Whenever and wherever corruption is discovered, nothing happens. Whenever and wherever whistles are blown, nothing happens. We live in a country where the very idea
of accountability, or that our politicians are our servants
, simply does not exist.
As a nation state, we are a failure
. As a democracy, we have failed
. As a country we are bankrupt
, both morally and financially. We are the emerging market, banana republic of the European Union. Our political system is broken
. It is beyond redemption
Some will reply that I am a socialist, or other such attacks. I am actually right of centre economically, I just recognise what is standing in front of me for what it is.
An almost incalculable political and financial mess – generations are being saddled with the debts of the oligarchs, and the taxpayer is being lied to
by its own government.
