A cunning stunt

I get it.

Call me Dave wants an election ASAP –  this means that decisions on what to do about troughing MPs (including Tory ones) will be shelved – the Tories will get in judging by the latest polls – everything will be swept under the carpet and we can go back to getting screwed over as per usual and keeping the pigs in more or less the style to which they have become accustomed.

Note Dave’s reluctance to get involved in the Speaker affair…

A non-partisan blogger’s plea

I fervently hope that if Labour are ousted in the next General Election and the Tories get in – or some sort of hung parliament with a Tory/Lib Dem alliance – then the new government (indeed all politicians) will continue to be scrutinised and criticised by certain sections of the blogosphere.

Guido and others have done a great job in exposing the lies, corruption and incompetence of Nu Labour but it would be a tragedy if the emergence of blogging as a legitimate channel of communication, comment and criticism and an alternative to the increasingly servile MSM simply served to help remove one authoritarian government to make way for yet another.

As I have gone to great pains on this blog to point out, I am neither a Tory or a Labour supporter and I am as yet undecided as to how I would vote in a General Election.  However, what I am sure of is that I don’t want any government that is as repressive, incompetent or devious as Labour have shown themselves to be.

Consequently, as I state clearly on this blog, anyone is fair game for whatever I can say about them.

To paraphrase Gertrude Stein:

A cunt is a cunt is a cunt

A cunt can wear a red rosette but, equally likely, a blue one or a yellow one when they get in front of that microphone on election night.

You only have to read blogs like ‘Letters from A Tory’ to be reminded that the ‘old school’ Tories aren’t anywhere near extinct.

Beware of people who tell you that Ian Tomlinson was ‘asking for it’…

(I’m not going to provide a link to LFAT. If you don’t mind being repulsed by some of the stuff you’ll read on there, then you can bloody well find it yourself.)

It would be naive to the point of idiocy to think that if Labour get thrown out of government then whoever replaces them will be this country’s salvation and  that the failings that have been this present government’s hallmark would no longer be of concern.

We need to be able to trust our politicians again, and if they think that persuing policies that the public at large disagrees with will be immediately seized on by people such as Guido then this will hopefully make them take stock and think again.

Red, blue, yellow, green – fucking heliotrope – let’s carry on naming and shaming until the bastards start to justify the trust we’ve placed in them with our votes.

Don’t let any of them off the hook.

If we do, then all we’ve done is allow the next government to finish what the last one started…

A new piglet

Oink!

Haven’t we had enough of the Blair/Booth effect in British politics?

Hasn’t it fucked this country up enough already?

Well, some people don’t think so, it would seem.

Cherie Blair’s stepmother will stand for Parliament at the next general election, the Labour Party has confirmed.

Stephenie Booth was selected as the party’s prospective parliamentary candidate for Calder Valley, West Yorkshire, at a meeting on Thursday.

I dislike her already.

Just one more strident, greedy, authoritarian Nu Labour pig  jostling to get her nose in the trough.

Here’s hoping she loses her deposit.

I’m scared…

It’s not often Mrs Shark and myself discuss politics, but last night we were talking about how to vote at the next General Election.

As far as I know, she’s nearly always voted Labour, although she may have voted Liberal once or twice I suspect.

Me, I’ve always voted Labour but when I was much younger I would have voted communist had there been a candidate.

Last night we both agreed that Labour had fucked up so spectacularly and with such monotonous regularity that they didn’t seem worth voting for again.

We both have our doubts about the Lib Dems – especially as the Lib Dem controlled council here in Milton Keynes is such a shower of incompetent cunts.

That leaves the Tories.

And that scares me.

If – and it’s a big if – if they offer policies that I agree with then I may vote Tory.

And that scares me shitless.

I’m coming round to the idea of voting for the party which offers the highest number of policies with which I agree, rather than just voting out of loyalty.

If that’s the Tories, then so be it.

As far as I’m concerned, the Labour Party has betrayed my trust, so if they can’t offer anything other than the same old crap then they can just go piss up a rope.

Vote for Leila Deen!

OK…here’s a thought…

Leila Deen has very kindly on all our behalves declared that democracy does not work.

It’s official – the career activist has said so.

Thank God that ‘plucky young girl’ has ridden to our rescue!

Whatever would we all have done without her custard throwing skills?

Now, unfortunately we can’t remove all the MPs and replace them with green activists such as Ms Deen, as much as that prospect appeals (the custard fights at PM question time would be a real highlight of the new green parliament along with the pillow fights during all night sittings and bitch slappings in the lobbies) but we could have a Plane Stupid MP.

Presumably, Heathrow is not some political Bermuda Triangle so it must lie within the boundary of some parliamentary constituency.

Why doesn’t Plane Stupid field a candidate there in the next General Election?

After all, if someone can stand for the Monster Raving Loony Party why not a Plane Stupid candidate?

It seems like a no-contest to me.

They’re right and everyone else is wrong so they must win the seat, surely?

If Ms Deen is so confident of her cause, why doesn’t she stand?

Well, there’s an easy answer to that…

Because she’d fucking lose.

That’s why she doesn’t think democracy works, because she wouldn’t stand a chance operating democratically in one.

Plane Stupid?

No.

Just Plane Useless.
