        Of course. It’s blindingly obvious that the voters are not going to forget about this in a week, a month, a year or even 5 years.

        The damage has been well and truly done and all the damage control in the world isn’t going to change it back now.

        Politicians are regarded as little better than thieving scum but a massive proportion of the British Population.

        And by all means have an Election tomorrow but it’s still not going to change the publics opinion that MP’s are all troughing piggish b@stards with the greed of a Banker and the morals of a Paparazzi.

        40 and 302 – You’re not alone: surely if it HAD been a ‘Gentleman’s Club’, members would have been told, by the Club Secretary, that so-and-so had been asked not to come back, and that the Porters had been instructed appropriately; he might have gone on to remind members of the Club’s constitution, membership conditions, etc., etc. stressing some of them, with a meaningful glare around.
        Gentlemen would not have behaved like Martin, Brown, Hoon, McBride, Campbell, Blair, etc., etc..
        Indeed: because even he, in this instance, cannot claim ‘it all started in America’, he insinuates, that it is the Gentlemen who are at fault, whereas, in reality, it is all caused by too little gentlemanly behaviour, not too much.

        Transparency and sunlight are the best disinfectants.

        Second jobs are a potential for corruption and should be transparent, they’re not and Conservatives have resisted disclosure, partly becasue they’re so embarassed by how little they get.

        Political funding is a potential for corruption and should be transparent also. Conservatives have resisted disclosure of funding and obfuscated when they do disclose.

        If you are happy with that, fine. Normal people are not happy with it.
        It gives them a strong clue of the real motives of many Conservative politicians, it makes them think they’re “bought and paid for”.

        Voter suppression is a typical right wing tactic, in the US the police set up road blocks on election day to stop African Americans from voting.
        The allowances sideshow is a voter suppression wheeze, but it will backfire against the right.

        The clue is in the name.

        Your party has failed. Your leader has failed; what is more he has been publicly exposed as a duplicitous and nasty liar.

        Nulabour have brought this country to the gutter so we are all on their (your)level.

        Lying, deceitful, spineless cowards the whole bleedin’ lot of you – the lowest form of human existance.

        Labour was born in 1906 with good intentions.
        Labour will die in 2009 and be remembered in the history books as the most incompetent bunch of uneducated low lives ever to sit in parliament.

        I see now why they hate excellence and success, as it just shows them up for the utter idiots and fools they are. But jealousy and envy will get you nowhere; most of us learn this when children.

        You are clearly shameless and see no problem in supporting a devisive, descriminating, evil government who have trashed England; this tells us much about you, whatever you care to write. Do you have a conscience?

        You remind me of some wonderful household gadget advertised on a shopping channel – well presented but of no practical use. I would engage in a battle of wits with you but I in your case it could well be unarmed combat.

        What precisely is the point of your comments ? I think you will find that the entire nation is verging on bankruptcy,which is a much bigger issue. Perhaps we could debate how we reached this sorry state of affairs ,rather than indulge in gleeful by- play about the state of some MPs finances.

        After all,it could well be that a number of Labour MPs find themselves in financial dire straits come 2010.

      I totally agree a general election is called for, but what I’ve said a number of times on here, is that we wont get an early general election, unless we make the government take notice of us, and the best way to do that is by having a general strike.

      How many more times do I have to say it, these greedy politicians wont take a blind bit of notice about what the public wants, unless you do something which stops the flow of the country. You have to force their hand, or you get nothing, direct and sustained action is the only thing these self serving, pig headed bastards understand.

      Whilst we are all moaning and blogging about how awful this is, and how we all want a general election now, the government will keep on giving out hollow platitudes about how sorry it is, and how they are making changes. Gordon Brown will keep on insisting, as he did yesterday at the afternoon press conference when asked about an early general election, that people are confusing the issue, it’s not about a change in government, it’s about a change in parliament.

      He will keep deflecting the issue of an early GE until Britain as a whole gets rid of it’s bloody apathy and learns to take action. Action, which involves stopping the country from working, action which involves more than just ranting and moaning.

      I’m willing to take bets right now, that without marches on parliament or a general strike, we will just get more of the same, and we wont get an early general election.

      For Christ sake people, the speaker has just resigned, now as I understand it once that happens it should signal an immediate GE, but Brown said yesterday he’s not going to call one. As I’ve said in other posts; politicians will be happy for us to rant and moan all day long, as long as we don’t challenge them directly. They must be rubbing their hands with glee, seeing us all venting spleen on these boards and on TV and radio, as long as we don’t do anything which stops the country from running smoothly.

      We all mock the French, but, say what you like, they wouldn’t put up with a tenth of this before they organised a general strike to bring their government to it’s knees. We are far to easy to placate in this country, we whine and moan, but never do anything to bring about real change

      It’s your choice people, if you want an early GE, get off your backsides and bring the country to a standstill and make these greedy bastards realise that unless we get exactly what we want, then we ain’t doing anymore work. It’s eaither that, or stop moaning and simply put up with it until next year. It’s a very very simple choice.

        Yes-but what do we want that an immediate GE can give us-Parliament still there, still 656? members, and all of the precedent, civil, constitutional and common law remains exactly the same. A GE now would give us the satisfaction of kicking the constituency incumbent, but right now, what would we get collectively?

        Hung parliament, weak Govn’t, the worst possible option. In that scenario if we believe in the rule of law and therefore recourse to the ballot box we would have an entirely impotent parliament where nothing would change except a bit of tinkering around the edges.

        I am all for getting shot of this shower but there are actually worse options. The only hope is that DC can get his act well enough together to get a working majority on a mandate that reflects the broad desires of the Country. Today we do not know what is his manifesto- we can only pray that it is not in the end NuLabour-lite.

        If a GE tomorrow does not give us “what we want” where the hell are we then? If we believe in Democracy then let it take it’s timely course. DC seems to have his finger on the pulse of public opinion right now, so maybe show trials when he has the power. But pre-election, or without a clear mandate on an unequivocal manifesto, forget real satisfaction on the venal scum who have ripped us off.

        But beyond our revenge, there are desparate problems to deal with, political and economic, which can only be confronted effectively by strong Govn’t. While DC today is no bankable option, he is the only credible one. Not a perfect option, but what in life is ever perfect?

        As a little more time goes on, if I am right he will strengthen his position; Brown will become weaker. Considered voting for candidates with all the facts to hand might deliver us a sensible verdict at the ballot box, but I do think a furious response “tomorrow” at a GE would be in the absence of all the facts- yes far more to come- and just yet, without sufficient credible alternatives.

        Just a little more time- keep the anger smouldering, stoke the fires of determination, forge purpose in the white heat of pure justification and take the dish of revenge, cold, absolute. Zero them out, and when its done bury me next to Churchill.

        The Fencepost Tortiose

        Whatever your politics, it’s a lovely phrase, and I’m sure could be applied to several people — not necessarily politicians!

        While stitching up the hand of a 75 year old Devon farmer, who cut it on a gate while working cattle, the rural doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
        Eventually the topic got around to Gordon Brown and his appointment as Prime Minister.

        ”Well, you know, drawled the old farmer, this Brown fellow is what we call a fencepost tortoise.”

        Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a fencepost tortoise was.

        The old farmer said, “When you’re driving along a country road and you come across a fence post with a tortoise balanced on top, that’s called a fencepost tortoise.”

        The old farmer saw a puzzled look on the doctor’s face, so he continued to explain, “You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he definitely doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he is up there, and you just have to wonder what kind of idiot put him up there in the first place.”

I’ve had two other, easier, better paid careers and chose to go into teaching. I work in a tough secondary school and teach a subject with unending stacks of marking. Having said that I love my job with a passion. I’ve never heard any teacher complain about their pay so fcuk knows where the NUT get their ideas from. Bad teachers (and there are many) tend to get promoted out of the classroom where they become bad managers, and schools are hurtling down the New Labour route of too many chiefs, ill-thought through initiatives to justify even more chiefs, suppression of open discussion and an obsession with data and targets. Education is fucked.

        6 useless teachers and we pay £Xk to get rid of them after decades of failure (you agree they are poor). That’s hardly a good return ? And we get to pay – why aren’t they weeded out before it costs the taxpayers ?

        On looking at the parents first, I have 2 kids.
        One gained no qualifications at all, the other had 5 straight A Grades at Higher (more difficult than A Levels) plus 3xA Levels all at A.
        Now at LSE even though educated in Scotland.

        Believe me, those of us that want schools to work want them out. My point is that the system is rotten from the top down. Once people clamber onto the gravy train they stick together – and they’re the ones making the rules/decisions. I’m not a ‘career teacher’, so I make my feelings plain. As I’m a good and respected (by students, parents and the staff who matter) teacher there’s not a lot that ‘management’ can do about it.

        I teach children with parents that I wouldn’t trust with a dog, or others who indulge them so much they’re incapable of taking any responsibility for anything. There are bad teachers, there are bad parents.

        Teachers get shit from above and from below, and if that’s not enough we still have to deal with this ‘home by three big holidays’ crap.

        Look at Labours record since 1997.

        1) Lifted thousands of children out of poverty.

        2)Tough on crime and the causes of crime. Crime is now the lowest it has ever been in any western country. I can safety walk down my street at night.I could never do that under the last government.

        3) Well off pensioners who can afford good quality food and a warm home in the winter months. The heating allowance is fantastic. A true Labour party idea.

        4) More job vacancies now than any time in living memory. Very low unemployment rates, with a fair TAX system.

        5) Well educated youngsters who can read, write and do sums to a high standard. We have become world leaders under Labour.

        6) Protecting us all from the global threats of terrorism and global warming.

        7) Helping to spread democracy to other less fortunate countries.

        8) A strong manufacturing base exporting all over the globe.

    this is not a party issue, it is simply we want all the corrupt to be brought to justice.

    Brown is finished we all can see that, but the fact that he and labour cannot see what needs to be done shows either a terrifying level of being out of touch, or shows that they are all implicated…either way we need justice and the guilty punished

    Community Service

    One day a florist goes to a barber for a haircut. After the cut he asked about his bill and the barber replies, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The florist was pleased and left the shop.

    When the barber goes to open his shop the next morning there is a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

    Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replies, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The cop is happy and leaves the shop.

    The next morning when the barber goes to open up there is a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

    Later that day, a college professor comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replies, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The professor is very happy and leaves the shop.

    The next morning when the barber opens his shop, there is a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen different books, such as ‘How to Improve Your Business’ and ‘Becoming More Successful.’

    Then, a Member of Parliament comes in for a haircut , and when he goes to pay his bill the barber again replies,

    ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The Member of Parliament is very happy and leaves the shop.

    The next morning when the barber goes to open up, there are a dozen Members of Parliament lined up waiting for a free haircut.

    And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the Members of Parliament.

      I signed it but I do think we might all be well served by letting Gordon blunder on for a while longer.

      He said today he was pressing ahead with the Royal Mail controversy. I’m not too au fait with HoC protocol but I suspect when it comes to an HoC vote on this , in the very near future – a good many of his back benchers (his whips have largely lost control of his own members), will join with the opposition and vote against his proposals.

      result – another humiliation similar to the one he received over the Gurkhas.

      Talking of which; what is Jackie Smith going to say on Thursday about Gurkha settlement that ‘ will protect the taxpayer’ ? – Gordon’s words today at PMQ’s.

      I hope he is going to do the decent thing but I just wondered when I heard his curous phrasing.

    It’s nearly two weeks since the stone was turned over and we finally saw just how many maggots have been feeding at the trough.

    Since then barely a handful of the greedy bastards have been suspended or sacked, and NONE are under police investigation, despite Gordon Brown’s assertion that even one of his own minister’s expenses claims were “unnacceptable”.

    The House of Commons should be closed immediately. Every MP should be sent home, a general election called, and those who have stolen from the electorate should be tried en masse at the Old Bailey and barred from public office for life.

    That won’t leave many MP’s, but parliament needs far fewer of them anyhow.

    When they are not filling on expense forms or accepting brown envelopes they are spending far too much time wrapping the rest of the population up in idiotic laws aimed at micromanaging every single action we take.

    They can stick their ID cards.

    They can stick their DNA database

    They can stick their HIPS

    They can stick their road charging

    They can stick their immigration laws

    They can stick their dustbin charges

    They can stick their council spies.

    They can stick their CCTV’s and their internet tracking.

    They can stick their health and safety laws

    They can stick their positive discrimination laws

    They stick all this where the sun don’t shine, fuck off and leave us all to get on with our lives.

    We need half the number of MP’s, and half of the the number of hours they work, and pay them half of what they currently earn. Their bank accounts should be regularly checked, CCTV cameras and should track their every move. One step put of line and they should be on the scrapheap along with Michael Martin.

    And if they think think sacrificing one or two troughers is going to abate public anger then they should wake up and smell the coffee.

    The next parliament should spend the first two years of it’s existence repealing every idiotic law ever passed by Labour.

“Well, then he’s gonna pay on December 2nd”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
