Occupier's Looney Demands

The initial demands of the Occupiers are being bandied round the press after they got upset with attacks from the right that they lack any coherent message:

A Demand For The Democratisation of ‘The City of London Corporation’

The City can no longer be tolerated as a State within a State governing above and beyond the authority of Parliament. This situation is undemocratic and unsustainable.
In the City and its anachronistic institutions our collective betrayal is writ large. The City is an anomaly in British politics – it has more power than the Scottish parliament. Democratic reform of The City Of London Corporation is urgently needed. The ancient political institutions of the City are surely unconstitutional and unfair. By permitting City firms to vote in elections the banks are afforded a disproportionate level of representation at the expense of local residents.

This is not in keeping with our Democracy.

The risk taking of the banks has made our lives precarious – they are accountable to no-one but themselves, unduly influencing government policy across the centuries both at home and abroad. This is not Democracy. Standing in the tradition of Clement Attlee we demand Democratisation of the City of London Corporation.

Reform of the Corporation’s political institutions will mean: An end to business block-votes in all elections – full democratisation of the City’s political institutions.

Abolition of the office of Remembrancer in the House of Commons.

Abolition of existing secrecy practices within the City and total and transparent reform of its institutions in order to end corporate tax fraud.

The City of London police to be decommissioned and its officers brought under the jurisdiction of the Metropolitan Police Force.

Abolition of the offices of Lord Mayor of London, the Sheriffs and the Aldermen.

A truth and reconciliation commission to examine corruption within the City and its institutions

These are our initial demands.

Guido thinks they might have been  better off just staying quiet…

Quote of the Day

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
