A friend mentioned to me that to stop undue influence by a few wealthy people , the main parties should get there funding from Government.
I pointed out that at a time when the main parties are totally out of touch of the people they claim to represent and by removing the need to get any financial support from the individual means that they no longer even have to pretend they are taking on board peoples concerns.
Also state funding would mean setting this dweedledum dweedledee system in concrete
With no chance for smaller parties to grow and challenge the status quo.
Both parties now this and are eager to suck on the teat of the state, that's you and I paying even more for parties that pay us no attention.
