No representation without taxation

 

No, I haven't gone dyslexic on the Boston Tea Party; I've gone mad on our political system which is beholden to those who have to be constantly bought off by more and more government hand-outs.

No more universal suffrage because the system is well and truly broken and hard-working, tax-paying citizens have had enough. Let only those who have paid a net amount of income tax - i.e. paid in more than they took out - cast their vote in any future election.

No representation without taxation. Any votes in it?
