David Cameron: The New Prime Minister

From The Tory press and “democracy”:

That Labour is widely detested is beyond question. It deservedly received its worst vote share since 1983… What stands out above all from the results is the alienation of the majority of the population from the official parties.

From Voting in Britain for war. Take your pick by John Pilger:

All three party leaders are warmongers. Nick Clegg, the Liberal Democrats leader and darling of former Blair lovers, says that as prime minister he will “participate” in another invasion of a “failed state” provided there is “the right equipment, the right resources”. His one condition is the standard genuflection towards a military now scandalised by a colonial cruelty of which the Baha Mousa case is but one of many.

From Culture and Nationalism by Rudolf Rocker (quoted by Medialens):

We speak of national interests, national capital, national spheres of interest, national honour, and national spirit; but we forget that behind all this there are hidden merely the selfish interests of powerloving politicians and money loving business men for whom the nation is a convenient cover to hide their personal greed and their schemes for political power from the eyes of the world.

From The Art of Looking Prime Ministerial – The 2010 UK General Election:

Why +do+ voters consistently have no option in choosing parties opposed to waging war on “failed states” at the behest of the United States? Why are we restricted to such an obviously pre-filtered set of choices despite the equally obvious dissatisfaction of the overwhelming majority of the population? How do powerful elites manage to ensure that they retain control no matter who wins? What is the role of the corporate media in preventing the public from interfering with corporate control of society?
