No one man should have all that power

29 Jul

A short post, yet in the light of more phone hacking revelations and the revelation in the Independent the other day that the Murdochs were given secret defence briefings- http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/murdochs-were-given-secret-defence-briefings-2326517.html , I believe it is time to remember what our democracy is supposed to stand for and that no one man who isn’t democratically accountavle to us  is too powerful, too influential and beyond reach. No one man should have all that power.

No One man should have all that power,
Not for a year, a day, not even an hour,
Control,
Over spirit, over mind, over soul.
No-one man should be untouchable,
Do what he likes, say what he likes,
Be unaccountable.
No one man should be beyond the law,
Beyond the scales of justice,
Hold our elected in awe.
The winds of change blow upon us, now is the hour,
Never again should just one man have all of the power!
