You’ve probably seen Mr. Brown’s erudite and lucid explanation for what’s been happening on the political front in the Sun newspaper. But in case you haven’t, I present this:
“I CAME into politics because I wanted to change the world.”
Oh, just like in the pop song… Well, Gordon, didn’t you once say you’d “saved the world”?
Wouldn’t that do?
Ummm, you haven’t really changed the world, but you’ve well and truly shafted Briton…that’s got to account for something, hasn’t it?
“I love this country and, like most British people, I’m proud of the way that we decide things democratically.”
Which country do you mean then, Gordon? Scotland? Wales? Northern Ireland? England? ‘cause the UK isn’t a country, you know, old bean? Nor is Britain! You seem a tad geographically confused? Perhaps you’re referring to Spain? Off to Torremolinos for your summer hols, eh? Already slipped into holiday mode….
“We’ve got no big history of extremism in this country because our Parliament – the oldest in the world – has always been a symbol of how we decide things fairly together.”
So why the hell are we spending soooo much money on “anti-terror measures”?
Your mob spend much more now than when we were getting regularly bombed by the IRA!
And in fact we wouldn’t have any problems at all, if your mate Tony hadn’t gone off on one and invaded Iraq and Afganistan…after misleading Parliament and the electorate.
“But our democracy has been discredited by the scandals of recent weeks — revelations that have made me furious because it seems some people have been serving themselves and not the public.”
You didn’t know what was going on, then? No news on the planet Zarg, eh Gord?
You didn’t claim for two different second homes, while living in the same “grace and favour” flat for twelve years? And what about that flat you purchased and placed in your wife’s name while switching your second home designation to Scotland? Would that have been done to avoid Capital Gains Tax?
“So I’m determined to do whatever it takes to clean up politics.”
Yeah, right, so what have you done? Sacked half your cabinet? Rid yourself of all those Nu-Labour MPs who’ve been shown as “troughing”?
Nooo, none of that!
Instead you’ve set up a committee!
Gordon, I’m sorry, but you are a first class joke! If you had the least thread of moral turpitude or human decency you’d call an election NOW!
It’s what the people WANT and they want it NOW!
Not simple minded platitudes, but an ELECTION…NOW!

There is much nonsense in the news about the D-Day celebrations in France, our invitationless Monarch and the diminutive Nicholas Sarkozy. Most of the press claim Sarkozy will stand shoulder to shoulder with President Barack Obama. It is to be hoped that either M. Sarkozy or one of his aides will carry the box for the French President to stand on?
One of the most serious issues (for Britain in particular) facing the newly elected European Parliament will be the regulation of the financial-services sector. Here, continental jealousy of the City of London will be reflected in support for the report by Jacques de Larosière, leading to proposals for an EU-wide system of supervision – and an undoubted diminution of our sovereignty over the City of London!
The UK Government has already signalled that it is unhappy with much of the plan. Not just because of the effect on British banking and the City of London, but also the idea that the European Central Bank would chair the risk council in Frankfurt…which would effectively make Frankfurt the financial centre of Europe!
Whatever Europe decides it will not be in Britain’s best interests…but we should be bloody used to that by now.
My advice? Use your vote for the EU elections wisely.
Take just one daily until the problem goes away!
