Well, the short answer to my title is, yes, of course we will remember. But we won’t do anything about it. We can’t. Who can we vote for if we don’t vote for Tony Blair, a liar who disregards the voters totally at all times. What are our other options? Michael Howard? Who doesn’t know whether to be for or against Europe, or the Iraqi war, or indeed anything. He waxes and wanes about once every five minutes.
Then I should mention the Liberal Democrats. The Liberal Democrats.
Well, they can’t accuse me of leaving them out – I used capital letters as well.
The only other credible alternative could be the UK Independence Party, with an invisible leader who even most members don’t know. Hands up all those who know who their leader is? No, you are wrong – it is not Robert Kilroy-Silk… yet!
There are moves affot within UKIP to kick out their leader (I think it is a Robert someone-or-other) and replace him with Kilroy-Silk. If this isn’t carried out by the election I don’t give them tuppence for their chances.
However if they do change leaders and manage to get in half a dozen MPs, it will shake up British Politics more than anything has done since Lloyd-George got caught with his hands in the till, or as Britannia.com puts it: “A scandal over campaign finance led to further loss of Conservative support. Lloyd George resigned in 1922.”
Politicians should be punished for wasting our money for their own glory. The following was taken from a Scotish Website aimed at the American reader.
Millennium disasters in London continue
“We had the Millennium dome, a structure and idea so poorly formulated it wasted around about 2 billion US dollars in public money and has become the most expensive white elephant in the public eye in history.”
“Now we have another Blair pet millennium project ‘ the blade of light’ pedestrian footbridge built across the Thames in London, again with public money that has been closed for months as it is sways under load!”
“Repair work to the ‘Millennium Bridge’ across the River Thames in London will cost an estimated £5m and take six months. Engineering firm Arup is planning to attach a “shock absorber system” to the £18.2m structure which will absorb the vibrations caused by all the pedestrians and stop the bridge swaying.”
One way of punishing these useless politicians is to vote for the UK Independence Party. If they get some MPs, then apart from shaking the establishment to the core, it will terrify Blair as the referenda for the EU Constitution approaches!
