    The Age of Disenchantment is upon us. People are feeling the heat of monstrously high taxation coupled with failing public services. They are becoming aware that all too many of the people they elect, nationally and locally, are freeloading whilst not even making the slightest pretence to live by the legislation they themselves pass.

    Step forward Tony Blair. No single person has done more towards this state of affairs than he. His astonishingly demagogic enchantment of our mesmerised populace encouraged a feeling in the Conservative Party that the only way to beat Blair was for its leader to become even more like him. Hague, IDS and Howard just did not have it but Cameron was looked upon as ideal. With an irony too complex for the flathead Tories to begin to understand, this occurred precisely as Blair’s unsustainable persona had itself eventually begun to unravel and crumble.

    Now we are becalmed in five more years of Blairism with just a few insufficient tokens, such as the ending of squatter’s rights, thrown out to us.

    The opposition years are the danger ones. It is there that our parties decide how we will be metaphorically imprisoned for the next term. American style presidentiality produces lame ducks.

    Given the prevailing zeitgeist of permissive-laissez faire politics several aphorisms seem apposite:

    People get the government they deserve.
    You can fool enough of the people for enough of the time.
    Political parties often embrace styles at the precise moment the latter have run out of favour.
    Democracy serves us poorly when the country has fallen in a rut.

    Fuck Cameron, he committed fraud over the EU referendum and if he’s getting screwed by Cleggy then maybe he should wonder why he didn’t go for a minority administration. Cameron’s a duplicitous knave and whilst he may be keeping the EU referendum pledge for 4 months before the next election he’s still a spendthrift empty shirt. Geez – to get bested by Cleggy is humbling!

    Many have been wondering why England captain Andrew Strauss has quit international cricket. While it’s probably has more to do with his bad couple of years at the crease and major dramas in the dressing room, it’s well known that Andrew is a Tory and rumoured that he has an interest in moving into politics. He raised £25,000 for the party at a 2011 fundraiser…

    With the Tories struggling to find a candidate for the Corby by-election, perhaps it’s time for Strauss to serve again.

    Errr obviously the Tories took ‘yer advice, sticky wicket?

    Political Fraud says:

    But as was said on this very blog last week, “democracy is where 51 Bob Crows can out vote 50 Einsteins”

    We need to see a considerable change in the way people are permitted put themselves into the political arena, coupled with a whole new way of determining just what kind of person can apply to enter politics.

    None of this ‘never had a real job’ brigade need apply. We need people from business, public life, the upper classes, the church, academia and every other walk of life. Next they must be over a certain age, say 40 and must not have any criminal record.

    Oh, and the most important thing, they should be paid, not even expenses, it should be a calling and a duty, almost like jury service.

    Well that’s just it – the dumb bastards never even tried. Granted, it’s screwed the Libs like a 5 dollar whore but Labour are gonna walk the next election as every normal Tory is sniffing around UKIP. Any rational politician would have gone for minority, set a stupid trap about free schools or some other drivel, lost the vote, called an election – bish bash bong – majority. But Cameron’s such a weak child he shat himself.

    Call me an old fuddy-duddy but wouldn’t it be a good idea to have as an MP successful people who knew a great deal about private sector business, rather than someone who could hit a ball a bit? Knowledge of the vital contribution that private sector business makes to growth and jobs seems to be totally lacking in Westminster. And then we wonder why the country is in such a shit state.

    My previous version was about Rhodes Boyson and came at the end of a thread in answer to a question, leading me to believe that it would not be seen. However, I felt there was a larger point to make so I refined it using part of the original but adding some more detail and attempted to make it clearer. I hope no one is against people trying to improve themselves… It is surely better than just posting first on the fifth post of the thread!

    I have the complete works of JS Bach in two different versions. All of music since has been footnotes to his genius, IMO.

    Mozart and Beethoven have also been with me since my childhood.

    But the period from the mid sixties to the late seventies produced some wonderful rock music, much of which paid tribute in some way to this centuries old heritage. Counterpoint is still very much alive.

    I was lucky enough to see these guys live.

    The Tories need to leave office, in fact, leave politics all together. They keep on moaning about the deficit, they can reduce it by resigning. If the crusty duffers love the private sector so much, they should go and work there.

    Gidders, Grayling, IDS etc are all scrounging off the taxpayer – ironic for benefit bashers…

    Has Call me Dave, the millionaire paid back the DLA he claimed? He ought to, he had the money to look after his child without taking public money. Those people who haven’t got servants to wipe their bums have little choice but to claim DLA.

    The Fixed Term Parliament Act for Dunmmies says:

    For Gods Sake !! There CANNOT be a General Election until 7 May 2015 however much it might be a Tory “Wet Dream Scenario”

    IF the LibDems pull out of the coalition and the Tories continue as a minority government with or without a “Confidence and Supply” agreement from LibDems…the moment Cameron loses a vote of confidence he has to tender his resignation to HMQ…BUT under the terms of the Fixed Term Parliament Act 2010 HMQ then sends for the leader of the next largest party….i.e. Miliband and Labour.They can then try and form a coalition government with LibDems or form a minority government until defeated on a confidence motion….then there can be a general election BUT Labour would go into to it with the levers of government att heir disposal in the run up to it….relevant part of act “if a motion of no confidence is passed and no alternative government is found”

    There can also be a general election “if a motion for an early general election is agreed either by at least two-thirds of the House or without division”

    So either way the Tories would be fucked big time

    Er, no you don’t, Baroness. Your statement betrays your shallowness of approach.

    What we want most of all is people whose minds are tuned in to doing what is best for the people.

    Whether they are men or women; black, white or purple; rural or urban; from north or south; working class, middle class or aristocracy; matters not a jot. That they should be good is all we want. You are not the solution, you are the problem because of the inverted way you think.

You have spent your entire as a politician, over 40 years, using taxpayers money to enrich yourself and get sex.

    When Osborne was last asked to give an account of matters to the Treasury Committee, he was asked what was being done to strengthen the British economy. Someone might have expected him to say something interesting about what Britain was going to produce for export. Instead he just talked about Northern Rock and Virgin Money creating the impression that Mother Hubbard’s cupboard is bare. Mr Mandelson’s lot didn’t do “metal bashing”, nor did Keith Joseph’s. THAT was what the famous signs at the entrance to concentration camps was about, it really was an old warning (1873), from way before the National Socialists took power about the risks of making money lending and fraud a source of income. “Work makes you free” meant just that, an industrial economy is preferable. Unknown to many, they were trying to get the people/country out of a debt based, service sector, economy. What IF some sub-populations were genetically more brain-feminised and they could not, as a consequence, take to industrial work? We HAVE learned a lot about genes and behaviour since early in the c20th, and though we ARE now more understanding and tolerant of diversity, we STILL have a long way to go towards better managing it.

    And any idiot can end up on jury service. Like muggins here who did it a while ago. However I held true to the oath to try the case on the evidence, and not on how the bloke looked, or what I thought of him as a person.

    In my case it was a child abuse trial, where the “victim” was a nasty little shit making up the abuse story because he couldn’t get his own way. And there were plenty of witnesses who could place the defendent in another place at the time of the alleged abuse.

    However one jury member stated that her husband said that the police would never bring the case to court if he wasn’t guilty, so he must be guilty. Result – Not Guilty on a majority verdict as the rest of us couldn’t convince the dopy cow that she should have listened to the evidence and not her husband.

    Indeed!

    In 1948, when David Ben Gurion declared UDI, General George Marshall advised Truman not to recognize Israel. Truman rejected the advice.
    Some might say that there was in fact some wisdom to that apparent act of madness, as what it showed the international community in later decades, was that a small group, which for centuries has fought against assimilation and “persecution” (for the advantages of being a small minority group granted asylum and settling amongst others), showed the world that all might be that it seemed i.e. the suggestion to some that this group may not have been “persecuted” throughout the centuries, but censured for opportunistic, if not predatory behaviour at the expense of their neighbours. Many expected far better of Israel.

    Alas, all the evidence shows that censure doesn’t reduce the rate of reoffending, yet many naively live in hope. What we are witnessing, I suggest, is the incorrigible hypocrisy of pathological human narcissism, which always ends in tears.

Hi Oscar Goldman here, back in 2008 , there was crash and Barack Obama a man barely in office , we can rebuild things (beep beep) , using eurosociliast bionic spin , we put the economy back together and spent loads , we faffed around with painting stuff and roads , spent loads we werent actually making , but we did it , (ne ne ne ne na) The 16 Trillion dollar man …………

    Meanhwile in the UK , were getting a feel for some infrastructure spending ourselves , Ted Heathrow , superfast choos choos why not a brand new Island . I dont know who chap was on early sky papers review but he talked a lot of sense , which is a different strategy to Osbournes . If , we are wanting some new airport capacity for London and Justin Greening has promised to make the case properly , surely a re shuffle of how the airports work could have some promise , I mean airflights from the far east might find gatwick best , and from americas Heathrow. Failing that why not look at somewhere like Brighton and just put 2 runways in , still has the 30 min commute into London ….
    There are other infrastructure projects as important , such as some extra reservoir capacity for crop watering or a water shunt (I prefer river than pipe)from wales to midlands which can be cracked on with without much fuss . The trouble I have had with much of the infrstructure chatter so far , is it just has the whiff of vanity projects ,that are of limited public use and deeply detested as its all about digging up green countryside , rather than the lateral thinking about cleaning up brownfield , sure it has extra cost , but any rational government would be doing it anyway .
    I think Osbournes advisors on infratstructure have got it all wrong , everyone I speak too is infuriated by it and down sarf theres bearly enough green space to walk the dog and get some excercise , I mean if goverment planning policy is akin to the Daleks , you know coat the whole country in flat metal plates so we can all skate around better , does he not have an ounce of sympathey for anything natural he cant tax or sell off . Suppose he thinks the fairys at the bottom of the mansion , make oxygen and the magic sainsburys truck is where food comes from ,, mmm how will food be cheaper if there isnt any soil to grow it in ……. or natural parks that facilitate full natural habitats for those species that can only exits in such places …

    Can you work out which other “cosmopolitan” group hold no allegiance to any country, even those countries that adopted them and in which they grew up in?
    You will also notice that when this group’s behaviours are attempted to be regaulated because of the damage they do to their adoptive country’s economies, they often start throwing hissy-fits and start threatening to take their money elsewhere.

Yet when they discussed Frankie Boyle their unaminous response what along the lines of “what’s the fuss about?”

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
