Easy answer?  Because most of us Brits are just full of stale old hot
air.  We let successive governments pour smelly yellow stuff all over
us and we sit back and take it.  I've tried my bit in the past, I've
literally pounded the streets and done leaflet drops.  I've slaved
over a PC for hours collating information gathered (yes, hours and
hours on end, no joke).  All for what?  So others can once again sit
back and do bugger all but bump their gums.
