Welcome to my Blog

Hi everyone and welcome to my "Have Your Say" blog.
I am very interested in current affairs, politics, democracy, and how we could create a better and fairer society than the one we seem to have now. I live near Runnymede, where the famous Magna Carta was signed in 1215, and many of my friends say I have an overdeveloped sense of democracy. That is probably quite true, but I feel strongly that many of our elected representatives have forgotten that democracy means "Government by the People, for the People. They seem to have their own agendas, and some of them appear to be far more concerned about lining their own pockets than listening to what the people who elected them are saying, and the question is: "What are we going to do about it ?"

If you agree with me - or even if you don't - I would like to know what YOU think, so please tell me - and everyone else - how you think we could create a better and fairer society. I look forward to hearing from you.
