When a politician says:
“We understand your concerns…”
This means: We “hear” your concerns and will totally ignore them
“We are putting another £200M into…..”
This means: Well, not really, this is the same £200M we mentioned five months ago and, errrrr…. sixteen months ago.
And many of us are stupid enough to believe them. In my younger days I was too busy enjoying life to worry about politics. Now that I am older and wiser I have come to a frightening conclusion.
It is my fault that the country is in the state that it is in, and that democracy is dead in our islands. It is my fault, and people like me’s fault because we were too busy watching TV, drinking in pubs, enjoying our lives, so the “powers that be” surreptitiously introduced more, and more, carefully thought out legislation, that would enable them to get hold of us by the dangly parts. Funny how those legislations are so carefully planned but the really important laws are rushed through without much thought!.
Who amongst you are also guilty? Come on, hands up. Who spends more than 7 hours a week watching television before 10 o’clock in the evening? Who spends too much time in the pub? The two devises Government love because both debilitates the citizen and therefore keeps them out of political mischief.
When people talk about the ruling class, who thinks of the aristocracy? Why, for God’s sake? They aren’t the ruling class. They used to be, in bygone centuries, but now it is the politicians, but they are only a small part of it as I have said in a recent blog. There are a multitude of people working with politicians aiding and abetting them to destroy democracy and allow powerful and rich people to get more powerful and richer; with the help, apart from the politicians of all the Quango people, the press barons, the corporates, the civil service heads and the like.
But hey! Who cares. And why all that stuff about dangly parts?
“Oh that”. It’s in America at present, but it will surely come over here soon. It seems that you now have to go through a special scanner at airports that can see through all your layers of clothes to you body underneath “to see if you have any concealed weapons on you. Naturally the staff will ensure the men scan the women and the women scan the men! After all they have to be perverted in the first place to want to work in “airport security”.A jobs-worth paradise. Perhaps we should put them all on the “sex offenders register”?
