"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."

Brown's Speech to Conference

4ozs of Nuttall's Mintoes & a Sherbert Fountain to Grumpy Old Twat for designing this unique gift for Gordon.

Sarah made a 'surprise guest introduction' with a eulogy to Gordon  I'm glad to see she took my fashion advice and added a touch of orange to her wardrobe.  'My husband, my hero...'

Here we go...  the front seats are packed to the sounds of "Move on up...keep on pushing" and Brown's overall message is to keep on pushing for "The World That Can Be".

The speech lasted just over an hour and started, "You know, friends, it is the fighters and believers who change the world again.  We've charged changed the world before and we're gonna charge change the world ."

"I'm sorry to say that by opposing all these measures, Conservative policy would callously & coldly return us to the lost generation and the Cardboard Cities.  We say never again - that's the change we choose: the change that benefits the many, not the few."

Here's a complete list of Labour's accomplishments according to Gordon, verbatim:

the Winter fuel allowance
the shortest NHS waiting times in history
crime down by a third
the creation of Sure-Start
the cancer-guarantee
record results in schools
more students than ever
the Disability Discrimination Act
civil partnerships
peace in Northern Ireland
the social chapter
half a million children out of poverty
maternity pay
paternity leave
child benefit at record levcels
the minimum wage
the ban on cluster bombs
the cancelling of debt
the trebling of aid
the first-ever climate change act

"That's the Britain we've been building together, that's the change we choose".

Not exactly Gordon, only 23% of the electorate voted for your god-forsaken Party when Blair was Leader and you were coronated, aka parachuted in.  Only 23% of the electorate believed Blair then, and that gives me hope for now and the future.

I hope someone makes a video of that section because his arms were going left, right, centre and up his @rse.  I've never seen him so animated.

He went on to pay tribute to " my constant friend and brilliant Deputy Leader, Harriet Harman".  He praised her Equality Bill and managed to segue to the BNP - cue pursed lips and downward glance.

Alistair Darling was also singled out: "the best Chancellor the country ever had" (cue hesitant laughter from the hall) and he reinforced the limp joke by turning it back to himself by saying, "the press would probably report it as 'Brown snubs Brown".

It was just more of the same.   Repetitive, rhetorical and full of lying sh!t.  Of course ID cards aren't compulsory -  they never were.  Blunkett said it years ago.  It isn't compulsory, it's coercion.  Brown announced a policy-change to a policy which doesn't exist.  Click on the Surveillance State tag to find the record because I'm so hacked off about this.  It was known years ago and it's only because it's out here on the internet that they have to acknowledge small, non-harming leaks.  Will the Labour Party get rid of the NIR (National Identity Register)?.  Google NIR and you'll get the bus timetables in Northern Ireland.

"Because the task is difficult the triumph will be even greater."  Just a load of bollox soundbites for the News Channels.  They've been trying to change the world for 130yrs and I have to credit them with persistence

ENOUGH - Essentially the boxes were designed by Labour and have all been ticked in Brown's speech. There wasn't a topic he didn't touch, from our AF to the NHS - apart from the European Union.

I can only reiterate Brown's words:
"Our country faces the biggest choice for a generation so we need to fight."
After that you'll have to check out Churchillian speeches and Kipling's poems for yourselves.

  1. Alarm bells ringing on all sides, even his own. The pill intake must be on the increase.

    Social housing 'centres' for single mothers, what's next, correctional camps for dissidents? Heil Brown.

  2. That's a big leap VotR! I can't pre-judge and conjure up FEMA Camps here in the UK (Camp Athol?). All I can say is the conditions and laws are in place - but I've been saying that since 1997.

  3. These 'Labour Camps for Slappers' sound a bit fishy (no pun intended).

  4. It all depends on where the EU take us. Their mentality is well known under an official constitution. More will be known after the fixed yes vote on Friday. If it's a No result, things will look 'marginally' better how things are this week.

    Do not think the British are immune to creating concentration camps, or internment camps as they are officially known. We have had our own over the centuries. History can repeat easily once absolute power has corrupted absolutely.


  5. The EU is extremely capable of oppression as is the Labour leadership - I wouldn't put anything past them, GV.

    And now the EU wants the power to snoop on all of our bank accounts and financial transactions which, if they get away with it, will end up allowing people as far afield as Romania, and gangsters anywhere else in the EU being able to rip us off from the comfort of their own homes because they'll be able to access our personal information.

  6. It's not that I doubt some of them wd like a British equivalent of fema camps but where would they build them? That's why I was wondering out loud about St Athan.

    Gigits, he made them sound like those old Homes for Unmarried Mothers in the speech but Miliband on Newsnight wasn't so definite, talking instead of an army of social workers. It'll never happen.
