"I'm as straight as they come" - Shahid Malik
This picture carries a message. This message is trying to tell you a lie. I am not going to patronise my readers with telling you what it is.
As more heads roll, particularly today those who sought to actively cover up their crimes, I have decided to tell you how I am going to vote in the forthcoming Euro elections.
Some will not like it, but tough. I feel I need to send politicians a message. The message is, you are either crooks, or, you tacitly approved of the crookedness, or you may have been one of the few who did not fiddle the system and voted against the FOI amendment bill which sought to cover up the crimes you have committed.
These men tried to prevent us from finding out about their fiddles by enshrining their right to keep their theft a secret in UK law.
UKIP are not saints. I don't believe that for a minute, but I believe I shall vote UKIP for three reasons. The first is that I believe we should get out of Europe and remove, at a stroke, a very top heavy tier of fiddling, extortion and waste. Secondly, I believe the issue of immigration and loss of our national identity must be tackled head on. The Tories are not touching this and the BNP is not, and was never under consideration as far as I am concerned. Thirdly, I want to send a message to the main parties, Gordon Brown and Labour in particular, that I am angry. Very angry. Almost as angry as I was about the War in Iraq.
Come the General Election, I shall revert to voting SNP, something I have done since coming to Scotland and something I shall continue to do for the foreseeable future.
And finally (updated)
This is what Shahid Malik really thinks:
"In 1997 we got our first Muslim MP. In 2001 we had two Muslim MPs. In 2005 we had four Muslim MPs. In ša Allah, in 2009 (or) 2010 we'll have eight or ten Muslim MPs. In 2014 we'll have 16 Muslim MPs. At this rate the whole parliament will be Muslim."
"I am confident, as Britain's first Muslim minister, that, in ša Allah, in the next thirty years or so, we'll see a prime minister who happens to share my faith."
(Hat tip Labour Home!)
