"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."

Run For The Hills

"I want to go around the regions to hear people's views so every city where your readers are I am likely to be visiting over the next few weeks and months. I will be listening and I will take as long as it takes. I do not see my life as being in Whitehall or Westminster so much as being in London, of course, but also being around the country."

Leaving aside the fact that (a) he was talking to a London-only freebie so 'every city where your readers are' would be geographically limited, and (b) note how he's going around 'the regions' and not 'the country', can we stomach yet another Listening Tour? The crux of the problem seems to be that we've been listening to him and we don't like what we hear.  He doesn't know how to listen; his ears are closed to what the country is saying as were Tony Blair's.

In Blair's day we were used to government pronouncements: the government rejects... the government dismissed... the government denies... but for some unknown reason (surely it couldn't be something as superficial as that 'boyish grin'?) Blair got away with it.  After almost 13yrs Blair himself would have a hard time convincing the electorate to give him a 4th term so there isn't a cat in hell's chance that Brown and his ragbag of incompetent international socialist collectivists who've turned Britain into a soft totalitarian state will get a look-in.

Personally, I hope the Labour Party is annihilated as a political force and the Fabian Society & International Marxists finally have to pack up their bags and leave after 130yrs of  deceit and manipulation - their infiltration tactics have been a gross betrayal of the people of this country.

Get your questions ready for Brown, or failing that, the green custard.
UPDATE: A commenter tells me that Metro is in many cities, not just London, so apologies for that.  I really should get out more.


  1. He's so desperate to cling onto power.

    Sorry, Gordon, you old fruit, you're finished!

  2. I want it to go further than Brown, Gigits. They're desperate to cling on and the Cons are desperate to get it - we people are lost somewhere in between. They're fighting for control of our lives like two rottweillers with a Jack Russell.

  3. Well put GV, but the long term project has not stopped. We are a test lab and they cannot help experimenting on us.

  4. The metro isn't only in London - it's in most cities..I think

  5. Thanks Tarquin, there I go - being London-centric again :)
    Right Incoming, I've felt like a lab-rat for a long time now with all the social engineering they've done.

  6. The more he gets around, the more likely he is to meet someone who knows how to get his attention.

  7. A brick flying at him ought to get his attention!

  8. A few yrs ago there was a chap who got Prescott's attention quite well, and who can forget the woman who harangued Blair about the NHS? So a member of the public who isn't a hand-picked Labourite might manage to speak to Brown.

    On the other hand, who can forget the pics of cops with guns when he went campaigning in Glenrothes?
