Welcome to Opendoors4U, a United Kingdom political search archive, set-up by ordinary citizens concerned with the actions of the UK government and the current political system that underpins it.

If you often feel as unclear as we do after reading the intentions and pledges of politicians, then this site will be of use to you. Government 'speak' has become notoriously difficult for the general public to interpret. To overcome this we have connected thousands of articles covering specific topics to provide as balanced a view as possible via our links database. From this site it is possible to review the pros and cons about issues that impact on us all by reading a significant number of perspectives and, importantly, discovering just who is abusing their tax-paid position by misleading the public.

Sadly today, the pre-election promises given enthusiastically by politicians no longer reflect their actions or actual intentions once elected. Trust is something seriously lacking between the general public and its political regime, hence our incentive to create and develop this historical record.

This website is not intended to offer breaking news, it is focused on reflection of news already communicated to the British public. Sometimes we follow-up on a story that may be just hours old if we believe it has merit, otherwise we will continue to dig for as much information as is available relating to events that happened weeks, months or years ago, in order to provide a clear historical background about the reasons the story is where it is today.

Unfortunately we cannot offer an opportunity for on-site discussions because of limited resources. We hope that the information accessed via this site will prove useful to anyone searching for answers behind important issues to do with the way they and their nation are being handled.

This site is a work in progress.

"If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is"

GENERAL ELECTION 2010
 

Almost as many people DID NOT VOTE, as comprised the combined number, 38.6%, of the electorate who did, for both parties now ensconced as the Coalition Government

 

It is clearly unfair that 34.2% of the electorate refuses to vote in a failing political party system that offers them nothing.

 

 

The NON-VOTING electorate were and continue to be disenfranchised by the political parties. This injustice exists because political leaders prefer to ignore people who do not agree with their policies.

 

 

It is not the fault of NON-VOTERS that they are disenchanted with the current political party system, especially one that appears to be so dominated by a minority business centred elite.
