Three groups of paedophiles

Identifying which crowd of cheating MPs – Tory, LibDem or Labour – is the least corrupt is like being faced with three groups of paedophiles and being asked which group is the least evil.

The short answer is none of them.

Not that I’m equating the MPs’ expenses fraud with paedophiliac behaviour, just pointing out that some commentators – both in the MSM and the blogosphere – really ought to get their heads out their tribal arses…

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…

The art of using foul language – yes, it exists

Found here in the comments:

I rarely log on to Staines; his blog seems full of gossip and tittle -tattle accompanied by the most foul language in comments.

If his blog is thought to be the leader in political blogging, then I am a Labour supporter.

To use the form of quote found in his comments: his blog is a s–t. (smut – for the suspicious – I would never use foul language)

Its puritanical and sanctimonious tone aside, this makes no sense –

his blog is a s–t. (smut – for the suspicious – I would never use foul language)

His blog is ‘a smut’…’a shit’…WTF?

But I see what he means – he would never use foul language and he shouldn’t – because he can’t.

Swearing is an artform.

For some reason, I’m reminded of the words of the late Frank Zappa here:

I have a message to deliver to the cute people of the world…if you’re cute, or maybe you’re beautiful…there’s MORE OF US UGLY MOTHERFUCKERS OUT THERE THAN YOU ARE!! So watch out.

I’d just like to say…

…that I find it intensely annoying when people supporting the Labour party assume that someone like myself who is critical of the party is a Tory.

I also find it equally intensely annoying that Tories see people like myself who are critical of their party as de facto pro-Labour.

Furthermore, people should not assume that people like myself who care for neither the Tory or Labour party are Lib Dem, UKIP, etc, etc.

I am now proud to be a ‘floating voter’.

More pigs

And still they come – more pigs eager to get their snouts in the expenses trough.

Tory, this time.

What a refeshing change!
