    Yes, lol
     
    Under international law, what you're allowed to legally do if you have officially declared war is much more extensive than if you havent. Although apparently its still legal to lob cruise missiles at someone if you're not technically 'at war' - which does seem a bit mental.
     
    Basically declaring war is a preliminary step to getting much more involved without risking being so easily accused of breaking international law. Interestingl;y the UK government have guaranteed and promised all along that we werent going to get more involved. So looks like thats going the same way that politicians promises usually do then.
     
    I, for one, am sick and tired of being ruled by governments that seem completely willing to lie to and mislead the people that they are supposed to be answerable to (us, the electorate), and seem hell bent on pursuing the interests of big business the banks (or in this case the oil companies) even when this clealry isnt in the interests of the British public, nor is supported by us.
     
    And Im sick and tired of watching coffins of British servicemen and women on the news so some smarmy ex-public schoolboy in the governement can continue to cosy up to the oil business.
     
    /end rant
     
    We need a bloody revolution in this country, or at the very least a complete change in the voting system such that politicians are obliged to act in the interests of the public and of the country, rather than in the interests of the businesses that sponsor them and will employ them when they retire from politics.

    Couldnt agree more with tac. It didn't take me long to realise that there is a very fine line between each political party. They're all the same more or less. Just thinking about themselves and not actually in the interest of the people and the country.
    Fair play that labour did leave the tories in a complete state, but do we REALLY need to be entering another war when economically speaking, we are knee deep in ****?!
    Surely this is just going to prolong the recession.

    thats what they like us to believe - but the fact is that many of these big businesses avoid paying tax in the UK by using tax havens and subsidiary companies, so often the country and the UK taxpayers see no real benefit at all from their increased profits - even though we're funding the military inteventions that they benefit from!
    BP paid just £1 in annual UK corporation tax recently - I, as an individual pay more than that every 1/2 hour!!

    Sorry, locked.  It would have been ok, but members a posting about their political opinions.  Other do/will disagree, this leads to arguaments, the tension spreads 99% of the time, etc
