The Dark Lord thinks we're all thick
His Sliminess himself, Dark Lord Mandy of Airstrip One, has been charged by the Brown Gorgon with the task of promoting British business. His idea of doing this is to tell us that nobody in this country is any use at running a business.
Lord Mandelson, the man chosen by Gordon Brown to help British business survive the recession...
See? His job is to help British business survive the recession. Yet he plans to part-privatise the post office by selling it to a Dutch firm. Why? Well...
He signalled that the reason Dutch managers were likely to be brought in to run Royal Mail was because British managers were not capable of turning the public-sector business into a success.
British businessmen are no use. Thus spake the Dark One. The same Dark One whose job it is to promote British business. What a fine job he's doing. For the EU, of course. Not for us.
I wonder if the MP's sitting in the House of Commons will have any say in his decision? They had no say on Heathrow. They will have no say on the Gorgon's new bin taxes. Parliament is just a place to put people who have no other use nowadays. A political version of Remploy. They aren't allowed to actually decide anything. The EU and the Gorgon deal with that.
Those few MP's who responded to the receipt of their copies of 1984 did so with derision. We are paranoid, they said. Totalitarian state? Dictatorship? This is a democracy. I expect the more witless among them still believe that even though their unelected, unwanted and undead Business Monster is trying to remove the 'British' part from the phrase 'British business', while their unelected, unwanted and unpleasant Prime Monster overrides Parliament on every issue he can.
They don't care about Parliament, these people. How can they expect us to believe they care about us?
Update: It seems every other UK business is forbidden to advertise jobs overseas. Funnily enough, there's a provision in the Criminal Justice and Immigration act that allows Jacq the Ripper to do this without messing about with all that tedious democracy nonsense.
Does any new law get debated in parliament any more? If not, what are we paying them for?
