I deliberately withheld my vote at the General Election because, to be blunt, all three main parties agree that the economic crisis is to be solved by throttling the life out of the poor in order to feed the rich. This is the politics of vampirism! Little wonder that Christ emphasised that His Kingdom is not of this world. He also told the rich to give all they have to the poor, pick up their cross and follow Him. Probably a vote loser in the world, but... If we have to intervene poltically it cannot be on behalf of political parties, but on the basis of the Beatitudes and the Commandments.
