"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

The Government We Deserve?

85yrs-old, attacked from behind. What happened to the govt's beloved CCTV cameras which are so 'invaluable in the fight against crime'?

No-one I know wants to live in a society like this and certainly no-one voted for it. No one voted for the changes that would bring this about. We don't have the government we deserve; we deserve much, much better than the present scummy b@st@rds in office. The cost of this government can be counted in much more than financial terms. We want a General Election NOW.


  1. Question is will Gordon use his emergency powers and postpone an election indefinitely? The most dangerous creatures are the wounded ones and New Labour are haemorrhaging.

  2. Well, they keep willing us to succumb to Swine Flu (witness the reported digging of mass graves - that's cheery!) or there are the frequent references to 'right-wing extremists plots'. Street riots/racial tensions? If that's the way they're thinking it could be any pretext.

  3. or do we deserve it? Voter apathy caused this - too much reliance on the traditional parties, a refusal to actually do anything about it, we've let them run roughshod over us

  4. Agree with that T but even though it may be our fault that doesn't mean we deserve it. The majority of people are still decent, law-abiding and upright who simply want to do the best they can for themselves, their families and their neighbours. Perhaps I'm just splitting hairs.
