Happiness and May 3rd Councillor Elections

Vote for anyone but the established power in the upcoming councillor elections and let's accelerate the process of fundamental reform for a better deal for the majority and nature.
Capitalism is nearly over and Sustainable Futures are coming.

By voting out the established power and then relentlessly attacking the incoming party it will undermine the political system and force the political establishment to re-consider the undemocratic first past the post system. If the one's first past the post are going to win a poisoned chalice of unrelenting abuse and attack it forces them to consider a proportional representation (PR) system whereby voters start to actually vote for who they want rather than just trying to choose between the lesser of the two dominant evils (Duverger's Law).  

PR will decentralise power and turn Parliament into a multi-party decision making body. This will weaken central government and put the brakes on corporate global capitalisation of the majority and nature. It will strengthen central government in terms of long term planning. The short term decision making power will be thrown back to the people locally, to community groups, small businesses and neighbourhood development groups (hyper-local as opposed back to local government who have spent the last few decades conceding to corporate power). If corporations want to do deals they will need to go through the hyper-local groups who theoretically should be less prone to corruption and considering any corporate activity affects them, their family and local area are more prone to broker a better deal for people and the environment. 

If pressure is then put on to introduce a whole series of policies such as a nature and wellbeing act, new nature friendly planning policies etc and further pressure is put onto strengthening wildlife enforcement law and even more pressure put on corporations to start measuring their output in triple bottom line accounts or Natural Capital Accountancy this will start metamorphosing new codes in the DNA of the system itself, fundamentally changing the code from one that measures value mainly in economic output to one that measures output in social, environmental and capital output. 

More power into the hands of the majority and less tied up in a power lusting minority. The more distal something is the more susceptible it is to corruption. The more power hyper-locally and individually, the more chance of decision making that puts people and the environment first and corporate profit and political careers second. 

So vote anyone but the established power and let's get these crocked bastards on the run. If you live in the Wandle Valley Ward vote for me and if I get in power attack me relentlessly.  I need a kick up the arse to keep me going.

Somehow need to reform our archaic political system. Nature is loosing out despite a majority of people not wanting that to happen. Better representation and better distribution of power is surely what's needed?
