Gordon Brown Doesn’t Have A Clue

Usually the rule in politics is: don’t ask a question you do not know the answer to. It goes without saying that you do not ask a question when you have already been told the answer in writing. That would be a waste of time and money.

Gordon Brown MP has tabled a rare written parliamentary question about a constituency issue in a belated attempt to catch up on a growing concern of his electors. The written reply doesn’t convey the full contempt…

Radioactive Waste: Dalgety Bay

Mr Gordon Brown: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence with reference to his planned visit to Fife in the week of 30 January 2012, if he will visit the sites at Dalgety Bay now under scrutiny for radiation contamination.

Mr Robathan: I am, this day, at Dalgety Bay and am visiting these sites. My office notified the right hon. Member’s office of my visit on 19 January.

Gordon tabled the question on January 26. He isn’t really paying attention is he?

      The BBC, combining a soviet method of subsidy and medieval style of punishment if you don’t pay up. Why since the fall of the Berlin wall has there been any need for a state funded broadcaster, expect perhaps in North Korea and Cuba? Why the fuck do we put up with it?

      There are many multi millionaires’ on Labour benches that it beggars belief that Ed the Talking Horse even used the line of Tory millionaires.

    What I posted on FB regarding Broon:
    People of Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath constituency. Did you know that Gordon Brown, Labour MP for the said constituency, is paid nearly £100,000 a year to represent you in the House of Commons. Are you aware that in the last year, he has represented us in the House of Commons TWICE? Yes, he has decided to turn up for work twice in a year. One of those times was a personal issue to him, regarding the News of the World affair. Therefore, to represent us ONCE in a year has cost £100,000 ish. Is he worth all that? This constituency is suffering. You won’t hear a bad word against him in the Fife Free Press, Central Fife Times, Glenrothes Gazzete, or indeed the East Fife Mail. The Fife Free Press group should hang their heads in shame, as they are politically biased. Democratic? Hah. The chief editor is a good friend of Gordon Brown, and his editorial is blinkered because of this. Any time you write to the paper, or respond to it’s news stories, and it regards Brown, your comments are deleted. It seems he has had a word with the FFP as he did with the Courier regarding anything against him. The Fife Free Press, representing Kirkcaldy should be asking him why he is not representing his constituency, and still being paid to do so. Rather this than him calling the tune. So, despite the Fife Free Press’ censoring to protect Brown, I thought I’d let you good people know through social media. As to the FFP, I know you will probably read this too, hang your heads in shame. The censorship just makes us more determined to inform the people of Fife about this ridiculous situation, be it social media, word of mouth, or leafleting. Our voice will be heard.

    Trouble with the people of my constituency is that they would vote for a scabby dug if it wore a red rosette. Wake up Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath, dump this bufoon!
