UK Election? What for?

What are we voting for on May 6th? Why do we need a Government at all? Below is a list (not exhaustive) of the responsibilities our last Government signed away to the European Union.
We were promised by our last Government that we would be allowed a vote as to whether we should sign away all these, but we didn't get it.
  • Competition
  • Trade
  • Asylum and Immigration
  • Foreign Affairs
  • Industrial Policy
  • Agriculture
  • Fisheries
  • Energy
  • Transport
  • Regional Government
  • Consumer Health
  • Social and Employment Policy
  • Justice and Home Affairs.
So, why do we need a Government, made up of self-serving trough-scoffers, claiming expenses for second homes, £400 a month on food, and working in the only building in the UK where people are allowed to smoke whilst drinking their taxpayer-subsidised booze and eating in their taxpayer-subsidised restaurant?

There is little left for them to do, so let's call it a day. 

Ten people working 3 days a week should cover what remains of their responsibilities.
