Permanent elections

It’s been suggested to me that we use e-voting to have permanent elections. I trotted out my usual lack of security arguments, that we can’t have transparency of results and secrecy of the ballot, but we have these insecure systems running the banks and the monetary system; they’re always being hacked and or known to have errors. Maybe I am wrong democracy is not too important enough to protect against this sort of crap. It’s just that no-one who argues for more e-voting recognises the crapness, it’s argued as progressive reform. Mind you my correspondent suggested that his idea had been prompted by a viagra advert.  😜

Mrs L has a new welfare to work programme, a five year plan for jobs, increasing tractor production, work houses and cultural re-education. She suggests calling it the General University for Losers And Gits. Someone’s rattled her cage! 🙁

T/Y%

The EIU shares that Greece’s tax take is 47% of GDP, so it’s not a problem! WTF! GDP has shrunk by 25% since 2008 and avoidance leads to unfairness and the withdrawal of consent. The Greek Tax burden should not be measured as a proportion of GDP!
