Unlike Mr Zambonini (Postbag, Crow September 17) I do not support any political party. I am one of the millions of non-voters who do not participate in general or local elections, and who wish to see drastic reforms of parliamentary procedures and privileges. Abolishing the power of the whips, for example, would be a step in the right direction.
Unless there is a seismic change in the voting patterns at the forthcoming general election, it will be back to the status quo; New Labour out, and the Conservatives returned to power for another five years of undemocratic government.
It is government policies that create the society in which we live. It may be a clich� to say "we are where we are now", but does Mr Zambonini have any opinion on who is responsible for the country's current situation?
