Beyond Desperate

I have just sat through Gordon Brown's speech.

You would think that they have not been in power for twelve long and weary years.

Only two things stood out for me

A referendum on AV- He promised a Referendum on Libon but did not deliver

The Right of Recall of Corrupt MP's- We cannot even get rid of an Attorney General who has broken the Law.

These marginal measures are far too late. I would have been more impressed with the AV measure whilst there was a massive Labour Majority, not when Labour has fallen behind the Social Democrats in the polls. This is exactly what the Liberals did in the interwar period when they were swept from power.

Cameron is not going to enact these measures, so we are going for another 'Landslide' Tory Majority with about 33% of the Vote.

So May 6th it is, no Summer of Rage, No Winter of Discontent- just Labour being shown the door.

Still, I can't disagree that Labour managed to "change the world". And - heaven forfend - they expect to gain votes by suggesting they will do so again!

This election is not a done deal. ZaNu have about 40% of the population on welfare one way or another. Just wait for the scare tactics,it's their only ace,and,boy,will they use it.

I'll believe we're shot of those thieving, lying, conniving, despicable bunch of cunts the day after the GE when the results are in. Until then, there's no security. 'Call me Dave' may be no saviour but he's better mannered & not such a lying crook as McSnot. It really IS 'anyone but Gordon & his corrupt minions' as far as I'm concerned. From now until May the urgency is to convince the sheeple to get out & vote. There's a limit to how much voting fraud even Gordon & his shower of shits can get away wuth.

Dont' forget OH, none of these policies will ever see the light of day unless we vote them back into office.

What's the definition of bribery? Oh include corruption in that too.

ZaNu being 'shown the door' isn't enough. At very least we need trials and sentences, plus a rooting-out of the activists they have placed in the quangos, charities, local councils, broadcasting organisations and other bodies, whose job is to run our lives according to socialist doctrines, whoever wins the mock election.

Here is a definition of 'anarchy' from dictionary.com:

"a theory that regards the absence of all direct or coercive government as a political ideal and that proposes the cooperative and voluntary association of individuals and groups as the principal mode of organized society."

Sounds pretty libertarian to me! There's nothing there about smashing up Starbucks.

Rogerborg said...

My, you certainly do talk a good game regarding sedition, OH. The number of times you've said it, I'd expect ZaNu to have been toppled by now.

Never mind; I'm sure that if we vote ZaNu in just one more time by first-past-the-post, they'll fall over themselves to change that system.

If you want to see corruption and fixed voting at a local level, check out the "SAVE KATOOMBA BOWLING CLUB!" group on facebook! When I was in Oz I was a member of the local RSL club and also the bowling club which has now been closed down. There has been a dirty tricks campaign going on there (people have had their membership of the club suspended for being members of the group and therefore couldn't vote at the last meeting! Outsiders were signed up for membership and bussed in on the day of the vote!) Maybe Gordon and his mates should get in touch with the guys in charge at the Katoomba rsl to help them win the next election!

I saw a smidge of Alistair Dahlinks speech today. He warned that the Tories would "step back, walk away and leave people on their own"

If only! Step back. Bugger off. Leave me alone. The Conservatives would walk an election if they stood for that but they don't. They don't want a small state anymore than Labour do because it robs them of influence. No. They will not be minded to return our authority. We must take it back.

Oops - wrong thread. I meant to post that definition under 'Slogans'. Damn, so much for my anarcho-activism! I clearly need the direction of a leader.

"No compulsory ID Cards for the British People ! promised Gordon, hurrah.

Like bollox; they may not be "compulsory" but you will need a voluntary one to work with 'vulnerable persons', be a paid household servant ( or employ one ), travel abroad, volunteer, drive a car, use the swimming pool, buy some stamps, get life insurance, get an Oyster card, rent a room, work in the public sector, leave prison or the Armed Services, borrow a library book, surf the web, Vote, exchange currency, sell a mongoose, access 'free' state education or, of course, the NHS.
ie life will become less and less possible without volunteering for one.

Gordon Brown, Liar Liar, pants on fire.
