Vote For Change Or Vote For Gordongrad

With rumours abounding of when a General Election might be called it seems a good time to present a few salient facts about this “government”.  Regular readers will already know the kind of things I’m going to say.

The current “government” is unacceptable.  A Prime Minister the people did not vote for, seemingly given the position on the basis of some Hansie Cronje-like match fixing agreement.  Utterly distasteful and disrespectful.  It has its fair share of ministers and MPs who completely lack Clue.  Stephen Pound, Jack Straw, Ed Balls, Andy Burnham and Hazel Blears being examples of this stupidity.  Jacqui Smith’s replacement, Alan Johnson, isn’t much better either. Trying to spin the party line he ducks the facts about Gordongrad, formerly known as Broken Britain.

Then there’s Mandelson.  It’s quite ironic that Mandelson is an Anglicisation of the Mendelssohn family name (a large number of whom fled the totalitarian state of Nazi Germany) when he is helping to impose a totalitarian state in this country.  Not only did the “government” refuse to enforce the law over BT’s use of Phorm’s illegal surveillance technology, Mandelson is now driving the Digital Economy Bill through the Commons which will allow sanctions against people purely on the basis of allegations rather than evidence.  That is the act of a totalitarian state.  Quite why any internet user would vote Labour after its complicity in the Phorm case I don’t know.

Party Politics & Phorm

Gordon Brown’s performance in this morning’s interview with Andrew Marr was pathetic beyond description.  It shows a man losing his grip on power and trying to convince himself, his cabinet, his party and everyone else that things aren’t as bad as they seem to be.  When he started to talk about fairness and responsibility I nearly choked on my tea.

His is the “government” which has done nothing to prevent the illegal interception – without the customer’s knowledge and without due judicial process – of thousands of peoples’ internet communications data by BT and Phorm.  Some would say his government is complicit.  Others might say they are collaborators.  Either way it is his government, civil service, watchdogs, Police and CPS that offered no obstacle to BT and Phorm and refused to enforce the law.

More Balls

Over at The Spectator there are a couple more examples of Mr Balls at work. This post didn’t go down well with Mr Balls, who took issue with being accused of mendacity and demanded that the post be removed. Fraser Nelson is having none of it. Read the comments on both posts; clearly I am not the only one with a dislike for Mr Balls.
