It takes a certain kind of person to be an MP in Westminster, and stay true to their beliefs, and to know that they are there because of the likes of you and I, the electorate, and to know that they are there to represent us, and to give us a voice in parliament, and have the strength of character and moral backbone, to avoid the obvious pitfalls of the corridors of power, such as power itself and the lure of a big fat bank balance.
This certain type of person or MP is one who believes in morality and all that it entails and they use such power that they have been given, by the electorate, to try and improve the living standards of the whole country, and to try and change things for the better.
But many MPs fall at these pitfalls, and they bury deep, or forsake their morals, and their virtues of Integrity.
Honesty, Humility, and Loyalty, are the first to be buried deep or forsaken, when the lure of power and wealth comes knocking at their door; these MPs are the ones that use others to get what they want and then turn on those that have helped them,
We know who they are, they send us emails trying to justify their position, loyalty is certainly not their strong point.
These MPs live their lives in the comfort of knowing that things will stay the same, and so of course they live in fear, of someone who is looking to change things for the betterment of the country, and not just the few.
So they fear everything that person stands for, in case it upsets their own personal little applecart, and they lose their positions of wealth and power.
We have seen many such MPs fall by the wayside when change comes their way, but there are many more that still take their seats in Westminster everyday, playing out their role putting themselves before the greater good; believing. that we the electorate, we who campaigned for them put leaflets through letterboxes for them, and raised money for them, are not important and need not be listened too.
They are living in a bubble protected by a right-wing press who are just as scared of change as they are.
I ask do the people of this country still want to live under the same old same old, that is screwing them into the ground, making them poorer and poorer by the day, while they live a comfortable lifestyle at our expense?
Or do you like hundreds of thousands of others want a change,
I know which type of person and MP I will be voting for in the next general election, and it won’t be for those who think US unimportant.
It won’t be for those that get rich at our expense, it won’t be to maintain those who have a cushy life telling us all what we can and can’t do.
It will be for the person who can maintain their moral compass, who still has Dignity, Integrity, Honesty, Humility, Humanity and of course Loyalty, a person who cannot be bought, who shows no fear in the face of abject hostility towards him, who is not swayed by personal attacks on his good name.
In my mind there is only one person who fits that bill, and that is our very own, very electable Jeremy Corbyn.
All things Corbyn
