"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."

Beguiled Again

I've only had LBC Radio to listen to (well, strictly not true, I also had Sky and BBC but chose not to watch) and I've been amazed at how many people support Gordon Brown: he is dour, he is Scottish, he has integrity and the pound in our pocket is safe was the viewpoint of the majority of callers.

LBC is national radio so has listeners and callers from all over the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (just making a point there for Cameron's manifesto writers). I suspect that if it was still London Broadcasting Corporation instead of London's Big Conversation or whatever it is now, we'd see a different picture.

Did you know that today there are 30,000 illegal immigrants in London alone? Three years ago, according to Home Office figures, immigrants also took one in six jail places. Something is very wrong with this country.

The government of the past thirteen years has nuzzled up to us - I'm your friend, vote for me and I'll make your life better and easier. Vote for me and I'll take your decisions for you - don't you worry about anything. You just go on voting for me and everything little thing will be alright.

A vote for Labour equals a vote for Slavery and Indolence. Certainly, a vote for the Conservatives is same destination but scenic route. I don't know who invited the LibDems above and beyond the fact that they've always been there. They're greener than green, left of Labour and a minority Party... on that basis Lord Pearson, Nick Griffin and Alex Salmond should be invited to the Leaders' Debate. It's a ludicrous and a manipulated situation.

Many people are still hacked off at MPs' expenses and say they won't vote but that's all the more reason why they should vote. Check  a candidate's expenses if he/she is a sitting MP. If they've troughed, discount them - then look to the others. Go with your heart & mind engaged. Just vote. It's so important to vote; bloggers said it before it became a Brown or Cameron soundbite.  Just turn out and vote, even if it's to write 'none of the above c/nts' on the ballot paper.  Or, you could just take the soma:

  1. There is a quiet but still fierce battle through the media to diminish the power of blogging. With the blatant connivance of broadcasters and the MSM plus PoliticsHome (of Labour, all underpinned with tax payers's money, it is very scary and unpleasant. The lack of comments on blogs compared to pre-election is palpable.

  2. That's interesting OR. I noticed the rise of 'the blogosphere' in the msm's attention. Don't worry, it's just an attack based on fear.

    They moot over issues because of a 24-hr news service and everything has to be dissected - drives you up the wall. The worst aspect is, possibly, the fact that this generation of 'journalists' should be f/king shot because of their complicity.

  3. For future reference, the best thing to do is to Get one of these Stick a months usage on it, and keep it in reserve. That way you can't be taken off line again, as it's an entirely separate system to the one your now using.

  4. Thanks D&C - I'm waiting on my shiny new souped-up pc at the moment so that should make things a bit better (this one just can't cope any more).
