Five more years of Gordon Brown and Labour. Five more years of lies and profligacy in which, not only will you pay more towards the self-preservation of party loyalists, and their quangos, and their bent judiciary and their propaganda arm, the BBC, but also, your children will pay for this. And what of the alternative? In England and Wales, there is only the Tories. Stagnation. That is all you will get if the Tories win a majority. More of the same, except that maybe, the spending may get less. Maybe. A few of the more absurd initiatives may be binned. Maybe. We already know that the political and fiscal infrastructure has been changed so that many of the reversals of policy will be impossible. The British public has no appetite for radial solutions. In fact the British public appears to be interested in nothing but its own affairs.
We have reached a moral low in this country. There is a blind refusal to declare the obvious, which is that British public life operates in a morality free environment, in the mistaken belief that is according all comers a level playing field, whether they be axe-murderers or nuns. I am astonished that some people are already making out Steven Purcell to be some kind of Martyr. This disgusts me. He is clearly a man of low character, whose response to being found out is to flee to the other side of the world, after failing to shut people up with the threat of legal action and hiring fancy PR firms. God only knows how rotten Glasgow City Council must be to have kept this quiet for so long.
This is the true face of Labour; it is all about control and command by any means. Truth, and integrity and decency apparently count for nothing. This is your country. This is what it has come to. Five more years of Brown will make no difference. It is the people of Britain who go along with it that I am angry about ad unless they wake up to the fact that you have to have some kind of value system, based upon an understanding of what is right and what is wrong, this country will descend to the level of a third world country.
Great civilisations, such as Britain once was, decline because of two things: decadence and economic disaster. It can be equally asserted though, that they rise, initially, because of greed and conquest. Neither these states are acceptable. But there are places in the world that have avoided both extremes, and they have an uncanny knack of spotting the rot and doing something about it.
This will probably be the last year this blog continues in this form. It is just not worth the hassle of arguing with people who have no idea what it going down, especially when censorship and government sponsored harassment will make it impossible.
