Sajjad Karim has been elected again by the conservative party to stand as the prospective MEP for the North West of England.

I am sure he is a lovely chap and works hard, but he has held the post for 15 years and in all that time I have never heard of him, nor met him and that is what’s wrong with politics.

The parties just assume that we will vote for their party because we always have, without a thought because we don’t want the other guy in…..

Well not anymore. The parties need to get these people out to meet the electorate they represent, after all the extremely generous pay and conditions must be worth it FOR THEM.
