Why the Prime Mentalist is Speaking Today

Hold the front page: Gordon Brown is speaking in Parliament today. And why is the jet-setting Prime Mentalist gracing us with his presence? He’ll be speaking in a debate on Scottish independence, but don’t let that fool you. The only reason Gordon is speaking, today of all days, is that he somehow got wind of the huge celebrations planned tomorrow to mark the one year anniversary of the last time he spoke in the House. That’s right, the last time Brown spoke in Parliament was on the 30th November 2011. His utter contempt for serving Parliament and his constituents knows no bounds…

      Hi !!! and Hullo !!!!

      I’m addressing my comments to all members of the Tory Party who admire me so much! You remember don’t you ?! – you admired me so much and for so long you ached to have me lead you! – and as I was busy you chose my boy Dave as a kind of proxy!!

      Well, – I want you now to really, really, push hard to boost me to become President of the €USSR! It’ll be good for me! – and good for you! – especially when my boy Dave gets the UK safely and entirely into the Community Partnership of the Socialist Paradise that is the €USSR!!

      And I ask this, not as an afterthought!! but as something to which I have given deep spiritual thought!!! – and in a deeply personal and meaningful way! Cherry and the Crones in her Coven have also given deep thought to this and done their crystals and pendulums an’ stuff and they agree wiv me.

      Also, I wrote Lev’s Report for him – so my boy Dave is right grateful!

      Bye – must fly!! I’ve got to see some very rich investors in my Charity! Hope you enjoy Gordon !

      Issue is, we cannot have a system where by one who wants to become PM has to go cap in hand in-front of a newspaper owner, his/her family and senior staff. Also we cannot have a system where by police doesn’t investigate criminal offence committed by newspaper staff.

      If these can only be change by changing the law so be it. Hope we end up changing the law as to what % of circulation can be owned by one organisation.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Areopagitica

        Areopagitica: A speech of Mr. John Milton for the Liberty of Unlicensed Printing to the Parliament of England is a 1644 prose polemical tract by English author John Milton against censorship. Areopagitica is among history’s most influential and impassioned philosophical defences of the principle of a right to freedom of speech and expression, which was written in opposition to licensing and censorship. It is regarded as one of the most eloquent defences of press freedom ever written because many of its expressed principles form the basis for modern justifications of that right.

    The utter contempt, (that started with Blair and the huge majorities he managed to steal from the electorate), that all politicians hold us plebs in, their desire to strip every expense code bare and their ego that demands they know best, are just some reasons why I will never vote for any of them. Democracy and Parliament is no longer paramount today.

      Hasn’t stopped Labour smearing others over their mental health. Like former Islington councillor Margaret Hodge, who called a child abuse victim “disturbed” because he dared to complain about the abuse he suffered whilst under the care of Islington which Hodge and her pals did fuck all about despite allegations being brought to her attention on multiple occasions.

      Or how about Blair’s rabble smearing a train crash survivor who had dared to criticise His Holiness St Tony? Let’s not forget all the jokes about Thatcher’s dementia.

      The entire Labour cabinet knew that Brown was completely unfit to be prime minister, something many of them have openly admitted since going into opposition, but at the time they said nothing and let him become pm without even a leadership election in the party. He told the public he “relished” the prospect of a contest, while sending his bully boys to terrorise any possible candidates into silence.

    “There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it.

    There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.

    The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?

    We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”
