ILLUSION OF DEMOCRACY APR 3rd 2011

Is an election just an illusion of democracy?
Just a changeover of the usual aristocracy,
Where nobody is required to vote so most don’t,
Can’t talk death-with-dignity like they do over in Vermont.

Can’t have binding referendums like they do in Switzerland,
Two of the many subjects that we have completely banned,
Can’t have proportional representation in first-past-the-post,
Where the collective opposition usually have many more votes.

None of our party leaders have offered much or any change,
And why should this seem so everyday ordinary and not strange?
No binding referendums or death-with-dignity offered here,
Not even compulsory voting so they have no fear.
