Cabinet Change Changes Nothing In Politics

Whoever one votes for the government always wins.

Pink Pounds Talk In Malawi

The Malawian President has pardoned Mrs Dale's martyrs. Looks like the international aid is safe now.
Can he do anything for poor little David Laws? The seven hundred odd civil servants in Coventry working for Becta and QCDA who learned this week that their quangos were closing. They also did their jobs well* but didn't claim for expenses to which they weren't entitled. But they received no sympathy from the self-absorbed ranks of the LibDems and professional gays. Hypocritical? Of course, but they aren't those saints who give their lives in public service (not "Our Boys" who aren't given appropriate kit and training to protect life and limb) our wonderful MPs.

Breaking News- Government Minister Underclaimed Expenses

Sorry, typo error on the spreadsheet. It should have been a plus sign instead of a minus. All Sheeple return to paying tax now.

Why It's Better To Cut Now Rather Than Later

Nulab and Libdem like the idea of a gentle cut in government borrowing as it's fluffier and kinder and will give those nice banker more interest payments for longer. Play around with this tool, originally designed for credit cards*, created by the Daily Telegraph, and see that a short, sharp cut saves money.

*credit cards are an extremely inefficient way to borrow but are widely misused by the same people who vote sinisterly. When they discover they can't afford the repayments, it's not their fault because they couldn't be expected to understand the way credit cards work.

Message To Politicians

My vote is just as important as yours. I voted Conservative but wanted UKIP policies as well. (Wouldn't that have got a majority without this coalition nonsense?) I didn't vote LibDem as I believe they are just as bad as Nulabour but went to better schools.
Just get rid of the Scotch Squatter and his rabble of losers now. Retake 10 Downing Street for democracy and England.

A few Election Thoughts

1. A great shame that the Conservatives didn't get a majority but they are partly to blame because of their refusal to ally with UKIP (their votes wouldn't have gone anywhere else) and offer a referendum on the Lisbon Constitution.
2. The Victorian Boundary Commission using 2001 data to set constituency boundaries helped Labour MPs get elected with fewer votes in smaller constituencies.
3. The uberPC Electoral Commission quango which managed, in conjunction with many incompetent Returning Officers, to turn the election for many people in large cities into a farce worthy of the third world. For fusk's cakes, don't they teach contingency planning anymore? A general election is one of those occasions where a bit of waste (too many ballot papers, too many polling stations or polling staff) can be justified. where diversity training and translation services can not.
4. The LibDems will become the institutional party of government. Any other party, if First Past The Post is scrapped will have to get into political bed with them. The third most popular party will end up on top for ever. Any political wonk who wants a job for life will join the LibDems, secure in the knowledge that they will be guaranteed a government or quango job.
5. Proportional Representation will divorce the public from their MP whose loyalty will shift to their party bosses as their job will depend on their place on the party list. Mmmm... Continental machine politics and corruption. The alternative voting methods will favour vanilla, or least disliked candidates who offer the most for the least required. And, as manifestos are not actionable in law, you will not get what you want or expect.
6. Coalition government means that the one person with a vote to decide the government is now Nicholas Clegg whom over 25 million people didn't vote for. That's fair. Not.
7. Think back over the election campaign or futher if you wish and recall all the things the LibDems said about the Tories and vice-versa. And yet they hope to convince themselves and us that they can work together for the good of the country.
8. As nobody has yet commented on it, this country is engaged in a big war in Afghanistan. I hope our lads and lasses were able to vote.
