Democracy in theory should be the best political system that can be devised but where unfortunately in practice, it is as good and as bad as all other forms of running a nation by leaders and politicians. But now in the West, where inequality is at its greatest disparity ever and growing, western democracy is corrupt and needs changing.

Therefore 'PARTYOCRACY' (a party-ruled 'democracy') then surmounts democracy for the good of the PARTY and not overridingly for the PEOPLE of a nation. That is the main reason why the vast majority of political promises that get them elected and into power, never happen and the 'people' are let down time and time again.

Would you trust this man?
Indeed the biggest problem of course is to change all this but where our political leaders are bought and sold on the altar of power and wealth both in the USA and the UK. For when it comes to ultimate control, less than a mere thousand people control the destiny of the USA as an example, and at their pleasure. For it's official now, as they control the White House in reality, even before a new President is elected, no matter which Party gets into power. In this respect, in the USA things are not as they seem and where western media controlled by the top 1% wealthiest Americans, is suppressing the 'real' America of today. A few Americans have bought their political leaders before they even enter the White House and where the working poor, working class and middle class that accounts for 90% of the American people, have no say anymore in their country's future. Only the rich and powerful has any real say. Indeed the article by investigative journalists at the New York times released on 10 October 2015 makes this perfectly clear For just 158 families have provided nearly half of the early money for efforts to capture the White House. - http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/10/11/us/politics/2016-presidential-election-super-pac-donors.html?emc=edit_na_20151010&ref=headline&_r=0
BUT THE QUESTION THAT HAS TO BE ULTIMATELY ASKED IS, HOW CORRUPT REALLY IS the 'Establishment' in the United Kingdom?
For the answer to this, one has only to look at the emerging scandal over the alleged paedophile activities of the Establishment to obtain a small insight into the answer to this uneasy question.
This concerns a recent article in the Daily Mail published on July 19, 2014 (pages 28,29 30) and where this clearly shows that the Establishment is 'inherently' corrupt to the core when their vested-interests are challenged and attacked. Indeed, 'cover-ups' are inevitable from the top down - The article was entitled,
'Chilling day special branch swooped to seize ANOTHER dossier on VIP abusers'.
In this respect the article revolved around a substantial dossier on alleged paedophiles at the highest level within the Establishment - on top of what is supposingly being addressed presently (July 2014 onwards) by themselves the Establishment, but concerning over 114 paedophile accusations files that have gone missing at the Home Office. The following is extracts from the article which concerned a dossier passed on by the late Labour minister of state Barbara Castle to a journalist and what happened to this journalist in this events' aftermath.
The knock on the door came early one day in the famous dry summer of 1984...and Dale Hale, the young editor of the Bury Messenger, was reading the daily papers at his desk as his reporters were beginning to arrive...As Hale, then 31, answered the door, a trio of plain-clothes detectives barged in, followed by dozen police officers in uniform. What happened next was, in Hale's words, 'like something out of a totalitarian East Germany rather than Margaret Thatcher's supposingly free Britain'. The detectives identified themselves as Special Branch...responsible for of national security. 'They began flashing warrant cards and bark questions' said Hale. 'It was as if they were interviewing a potential criminal rather than a law-abiding newspaper man'. The officers told me that I should abandon plans to print a story that was scheduled to run in our next edition. If I didn't, they told me to expect a long jail sentence.'
Initially bewildered by their threatening tone. Hale soon worked out the purpose of the police visit. The focus of their attention was an incendiary dossier he had been handed a few days earlier by long-serving Labour politician Barbara Castle...and the MP for nearby Blackburn. One of her lifelong interests as a principled advocate... was child protection. To that end, she had become concerned at the rising influence of the paedophile lobby...infiltrating the political Establishment developing links with...senior public figures including MPs, peers, civil servants and police officers.
Mrs. Castle was particularly alarmed, Hale recalls, about the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE)...officially affiliated with the influential National Council for Civil Liberties...'To her frustration, politicians seemed unwilling to discuss this important issue,' says Hale.
So being aware of my investigative work in the local media, she approached me and we agreed to a meeting.'
Over tea and a bun at a local cafe Mrs. Castle opened a battered briefcase and handed Hale a bundle of extraordinary documents. They included typewritten minutes of meetings...held by Westminster in support of the paedophile agenda...with details of...Establishment figures who had apparently pledged support of their cause...No fewer than 16 MPs were on that list...I warned her that I would have to make enquiries...about some contents of the dossier.
...A few days later he (Hale) he put in a call to the Home Office. 'I could detect the antagonism from officials as soon as they answered'...The Institution that should have been protecting vulnerable children seemed more interested in topping the Press from prying too closely.'
It was the morning after Hale made his call to the Home Office that Special Branch officers turned up at the Bury Messenger.
Pushing him (Hale) into a corner, they began barking orders. 'Let me assure you that this story is not in the public interest,'...It cannot be printed, as a matter of national security.'
'That can't be right.', Hale told him (the senior interrogating officer).'Look, we're not here to argue,' the detective responded. 'Are you going to hand over your papers?'
'No', Hale replied.
At this point, the officer produced a document, signed by a judge. It showed that his previous remark about not printing the story had not been a request, but an ORDER. The document...was a D-notice - relic of wartime censorship that could be served on newspaper editors, allowing the Government to block any story that threatened national security.
'If you don't comply with this notice, we will arrest you for perverting the course of justice,' the detective barked. 'You will be liable for up to ten years in prison.'
At this point, Hale's resistance collapsed.
The papers...were swiftly confiscated, as were Hale's notes and even his typewriter (sounds familiar, it is and the very same thing that happened in the Local Authority case previously cited above this article).
'When I (Hale) asked the reason for this strange act of expropriation, I was told it was being taken in case of allegations of fraud,' he says (police officer).'You might have typed these statements yourself.' said a detective.
As the police left, Hale was warned never to write about the raid or tell anyone what had happened.
'One point I found interesting was that they all spoke with London accents,' says Hale. Not a single man was from Lancashire. It was obvious this was a Metropolitan Police raid, planned in the capital.
'This was confirmed when, disobeying Special Branch's instructions, I phoned Bury police about the incident. 'They knew nothing of it and were astonished.'
Rather less shocked was Barbara Castle. When Hale saw her a few days later, she told him, 'I thought this might happen.'...'Well, this certainly shows the extent of the cover-up.'...'We are fighting a formidable foe.'
With the D-notice in force not even Mrs Castle could then do anything as the Establishment had through the Judiciary blocked everything . But what the above clearly shows is how corrupt the Establishment is. Indeed since this dossier was erased from existence and in recent times, a further 117 documents relating to the Establishment's paedophilia accusations have been lost by the Home Office (the most corrupt department in Government).
As a further post-script to the above the Daily mail article also stated,
'This week a former Tory activist called Anthony Gilberthorpe told a Sunday newspaper that he had been asked to procure under-age boys for drink and drug-fuelled sex parties at political party conferences in the early eighties'
Can we say more about a corrupt Establishment? Probably yes and a great deal more to come !...if of course justice is allowed to take its course and the Establishment does not undertake possibly the greatest COVER-UP of all time?
But, there are alternatives to the sham corrupt democracy that we now have. One put forward and linked together below is,

Stop Press - Cameron Forced to put in the Queen's Speech or suffer defeat in parliament if he did not exclude the NHS from the TTIP trade negotiationsCameron was forced to include a clause yesterday (19.05.16) so that the NHS was excluded in the TTIP negotiations. This should tell everyone that he is working for the corporations, as the TTIP is a corporate treaty in reality and why should he have had to be forced to do this if the TTIP is so good for the people?
But he is having to do this under duress. Unfortunately for the NHS this will not stop the EU from privatising the NHS over a relatively short period of time when we have signed to stay in the EU and where because the TTIP makes it clear that 'MONOPOLIES' cannot exist, the EU will demand that the NHS is privatised.
And Britain will not be able to do a single thing against this, as we would then be trapped inside an all-powerful EU and under their total control. Don't believe me, return here in a mere 10 years time to see that all the above has unfortunately come true if we stay in the EU. For only by voting OUT can the NHS be saved and that is ultimately the truth.
I just wish people would wake up to the reality of the EU and where we shall definitely not be able to save the NHS and anything else for that matter that we cherish so much, once we sign to stay in the EU. For this time it will be forever.

As a postscript and the way that our political masters now think, the USA, Canada, Ukraine and most European countries (through abstaining in a vote at the UN), are in favour of Nazism, even though in Germany where Nazism was born and killed and murdered tens of millions throughout WW2 (over 50 million). Sadly you could not make it up if you tried but where this is perfectly true unfortunately for humanity.
Whitewashing Fascism - USA, Canada and Ukraine Vote against a UN Resolution in "Combating glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fuelling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance." Therefore the USA, Canada and the Ukraine are for Nazism and where European countries mainly abstained as they did not want to upset Obama.
