Fuck the military. Theirs to do or die...not to question government inaptitude!
Power politics by character assassination.
We Americans, who as you have probably read here are now lead by a non citizen marxist communist who hates all white people, are all too familiar with this revolting trend in politics.
The particularly vile, or the terminally stupid find this sort of politics by lies and inuendo, a grand way to conduct polticsal discourse.
And yet you find no such problem with the vile attacks on Palin, her Husband and her children, go figure.
Clement Attlee would be rolling in his grave right now. This mob of spineless, ethically diminished weasels, dare to call themselves members of the British Labour Party. They will do anything to hold onto power, yet they're not doing anything useful with that power. Are they so totally out of touch that they don't realise that they're destroying a once great Party? Labour was unelectable for years because of internal bickering (I'm thinking back to the Foot years) but least back then they stood for something other than simply holding on to power. I have no truck with the Tories but they will win the next general election and Labour will have to send a high pressure hose to clean out the shit from it ranks to begin the long climb back into government.
This administration has but one thing in mind, Diuretic. Self interest. They are taking the country nowhere but down, whilst lining their own pockets in the process. I'm sure you're aware of the recent scandals over politicians' expenses. Any honourable person would have stepped down by now, but these bastards are trying to keep their gravy train running.
I think Labour may well be done for on a much longer term basis. The Lib Dems have a good chance of relegating them to third place, as they have done in some recent bye-elections.
The recent scandals were reported widely here Boot, I know it crossed party lines but the government's response, if I can call rolling over and playing dead a "response", was pitiful.
I think you're right about Labour, sadly. I'd say this, New Labour should be put to the sword. A new Labour Party needs to be reconstructed. It needs to acknowledge its past, that time before this current manifestation of the Third Way rubbish, but then it needs to shape itself to meet the needs of working people in Britain as those needs actually are and not as Labour would like them to be. The old socialist model of Labour is irrelevant now. It was relevant and it saved Britain after WWII but now that model isn't required. But nor is the Thatcher Lite model of New Labour any use. The Tories represent their natural constituency, the LIb Dems are going to eat into New Labour's constituency and meanwhile no-one gives a toss about the real Labour Party's natural constituency. Labour, when it is driven from office, needs to purge its ranks in a manner that would have made Stalin blanch. Having done so they can then show their faces on the Opposition benches until they are invited back into government.
working on 213. Stay safe, Boots
Hi Bootneck. Good to see your name in lights again. Best regards to you. Thanks for all you do. Can't give you a good cold beer so here's a bit of rep.
