It will enjoy running free in a safe, enclosed area It is extremely fast and is a natural racer. It will chase and kill small game. Be sure to provide a safe area for this politician to run so it does not get hit by a car should it decide to take off after an animal.!!

      Dear Mr Camoron

      You are so obsessed with occupying the “center ground” that you don’t realise that the “center ground” is no longer in the center.

      As a clue, I’d like to point out that the “center ground” is actually to your right.

      The voting public do not fit into a nice distribution curve around the middle. They move, they have their own views and ideas. They dont share your LibLabCon principles.

      UKIP found the center ground. Thats why they resonate and are on a surge.

      Now do you get it ???

        There is a limit to how much one can help an area which won’t help itself.

        I criticise Heseltine a lot but he did at least attempt to do something for Liverpool, a place by the way, which I do have some fondness for and where I have had not a few friends over the years. What is more, a number of these improvements endure such as the Tate which pull in people from other areas who might not actually come.

        Trouble is with the Derek Hattons of this world is that they would have their own passports and checkpoints coming in and leaving.

        You obviously have never been to Romania and Bulgaria and observed the problems that their societies have with the Gypsies and the social unrest that results. The Romanians have just banned the gypsies from driving around in their horse and carts hence the excess of horse meat on the market.

        Given a choice of living in a squalid ghetto and begging on the streets of Bucharest or living the life of Riley on the social in England which would you choose?

          There was some resistance in Canada to receiving them, but then there is plenty of space. The Roma did get a shock when winter arrived in deepest darkest Manitoba. It helps keep the numbers down.

          It is fair to say that the Roma are being pushed out of their homeland and find it hard to settle elsewhere as they do not conform to the usual norms which modern society demands. In particular living in a fixed location, paying tax to the state etc.

      Exactly. And pizza slices don’t even have the vote.

      The possibility exists that everyone who enters the portals of Number Ten as Her Majesty’s First Lord of the Treasury becomes infected by some as yet unidentified madness.

      Dave’s is bum sex marriages. Blair’s was making unwinnable wars against unidentified enemies, Major’s was not being able to dump poor ministers, Maggy’s was the poll tax. Callaghan’s was being unable to recognise a crisis when the dead were lying unburied in the streets, Wilson’s was thinking that devaluation would not cause inflation for a nation which relies upon imports, Heath’s was misjudging the miners, Home’s was understanding neither politics nor economics, MacMillan’s was his inability to recognise his minister’s exposure to spies in their efforts to fornicate.

      Of course, it will be seen that I have omitted one. A unique individual. A saviour of the world. Brown was just plain bonkers before anyone ever imagined he would get to Number Ten. He passed through the doors completely immune to the evil spirits which therein lurk. They probably took fright when they saw him approach.

          Exactly, Dave actually seems to like being in a Coalition with the LibDems! He is closer to them on just about everything than many of his own MPs and certainly more than the party membership. All three main parties share the same core ideology big state, big government, micro manage people’s lives and retain ‘world influence’ through a Euro Super State. None have any real commitment to national politics they find the concept distasteful. Even if Dave had won an outright majority he would have followed much of this agenda.
