Politics is a pain in the arse; there is the right, left, centre, centre-right, centre-left, upper left, lower left, upper right, lower right, upper centre, lower centre, Uncle Tom Cobley and Joe public.
The Eton dorm gang (otherwise known as the Coalition) are it seems making it up as they go along.
We have tousle headed Anne Milton one of the “Health Ministers” who thinks it is a spiffing idea to close off roads on a Sunday so that “children” can play.
She told MPs that the idea, which began in Colombia, could help tackle childhood obesity.
During a debate in Westminster Hall, Mrs Milton said: “On Sundays, they close certain streets so that everybody can play in them. That is an outstanding idea.
Think about it-Streets are normally lined with houses which happen to have gardens which the spawn can gallop about in, and that new fangled invention the “Park” is available for those that live in flats, or back to back terraces. And the responsibility evading cry of “but our children won’t be safe if they go to the park” is bollocks, have you seen a dozen or so “youths” playing in the park? They are safer than the SAS locked up in barracks.
U-Turn Cam (David Cameron) came out with “If you want a modern, compassionate Conservative go for the real thing: that’s me. I am it. It’s what I think and believe. When I’m under pressure and the Daily Mail’s having a go at me, I’ll stick to my guns because that’s what I believe in.”
Or in other words, no matter what anyone says I am right even if I am wrong and I will do as I want despite the ramifications.
Then we have Irritable Bowel Smith telling the unemployed that they should be offered incentives to move to areas where there are jobs.
Fair enough-ish if the unemployed want to leave their friends and family and take a job which will pay the minimum wage, and the people that move into their homes will be living in an area with no jobs, and we will end up with ghost towns empty of people, jobs and hope.
And of course George (reptilian alien in disguise) Osborne who spouted “Britain needs a simpler tax system which is simple to understand, where there are no loop-holes, where the very rich do not avoid tax by employing expensive accountants.”
Yeah right, who is your accountant George?
And Nick (hang dog) Clegg managed “Suzi Quatro seemed immeasurably cool to an eight year old. I found her music liberating and exciting as I danced around this tiny, tinny speaker with my brothers.”
Say no more.
What the hell has happened to Government?
It has become a “Bully”, a “Furk”, a “Calx”, a “Phalanx” of know nothing, non elected, inexperienced upper class twats that are so tunnel visioned they can’t see the damage they are doing to dear old Blighty.
And the “opposition” is just as useful.
Are you tired of politics?
I know I am, tired of the endless vomit projected from the unknowing mouths of the MPs, Ministers, Secretary’s and anyone else who thinks that just being in power is the be all and end all of Government, tired of the pointless to-ing and fro-ing of piss poor policies that are issued and then put on hold because they weren’t viable to start with.
Whatever happened to statesmanship in politics, what happened to considered thought and policies that are in the public interest?
This Daft Old Fart doesn’t have a clue anymore.
