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.
