#1 Don't like the MPs grubby hands in the national cookie jar, certainly, but I like the "howling mob baying at the treed fox" treatment even less.

Who is waiting to step into the power vacuum if they manage to take out most of Her Majesty's Government?

And how are they planning to use that power once they have it?

#2 I wish a similar housecleaning of both parties would happen here.

We've already seen mob action there in which y00ts of Asian persuasion chased the police and taunted them for being cowards. The implosion of the West is accelerating.

I suspect you don't really want a similar housecleaning to occur here. Britain's is happening at the point where the MPs don't matter anyway since they are now totally subjugated to the EU. If we had a similar housecleaning, it would be a superficial change that was impotent to undo, say, the appointment of a SCOTUS justice who tilts the court to subjugate the Constitution to "international law".

#5 They need to do more than reform by introducing newly minted parliamentarians. They need to reduce the total number to something more realistic. They have 646 members of parliament for 60 million people. We have 435 for 300 million people. Think of all the money they would save just doing that.

But this is more sophisticated than Asian y00ts throwing bottles-n-rox.

Somebody else is stirring the pot here, but I agree they may find themselves surprised to find themselves *not* holding the reins when the smoke clears.

#7 Agreed, Sea. Just how that CD got to the Telegraph is unclear, but it's quite likely the paper is being used to advance a power grab. Does Soros have a 'reform UK' front org in place already?

Whoever's behind it, watch for the Islamicists to use this to promote the 'purity' of Islam vs. the empty corruption of democracy, not that the UK is all that democratic even in theory.
