One more thing to try before taking to the streets with weapons

I sent this email to all of the LibDem MPs.

I hope that you take time to read this letter, I am sending it to all Liberal Democrat MPs. I am not your constituent, nor will I ever vote for your party, but I am obliged to do something, however feeble and pointless to stop the excesses of this current evil government, and its path of destruction.

Your complicity in supporting this dreadful regime should haunt you. Your part in forging this dreadful government of robbing the poor to pay the rich, destruction of the environment, dismantling and privatisation of the NHS, materialism and anti-humanity  should keep you awake at night and make it impossible to have any pride in your contribution to public life. Without your support, this vile collection of misanthropes would have been unable to inflict their repugnant ideas and policies on us.

But you know that already, don’t you? Perhaps you recall the times that the Liberal party was respected, if not voted for, by the rest of the country. There was a time that it had principles – middle of the road, and somewhat ill-defined they may have been - but most of us recognised that you opposed the worst excesses of the free-market philosophy and could be relied upon to side with freedom. You have murdered that heritage in as callous a fashion as Blair and Mandelson slaughtered the traditions and morality of the Labour Party.

Who among you cannot see that not only are Osborne’s economics those of feudalism but also completely ineffective? Is there anyone there who thinks that future generations will thank Gove for his regimentation of our schools and his lack of regard for the welfare of children? Do you think that Hunt’s policy of rewarding the 1% with giving them extra income from the health service to the detriment of the sick is anything other than criminal? Do you not see that Cameron is better suited to the stocks than the despatch box?

Strangely, I was not moved to write this letter by yet another moronic policy from Slimy Dave, but rather his appointment of George Young to the cabinet. He has replaced one idiot who thinks that policemen are plebs with another who thinks that the homeless are what you step over when you leave the opera. Congratulations on your choice of bedfellow.

If you think that some of what I might have said above is offensive, you should hear what I say when my sentiments are not curtailed by my awareness of the laws of libel.

End this coalition now. Vote against these people. Try to find some morality and love for humanity and pursue justice rather than the lust for power. If you do, for what it is worth, I will try to forgive you.

Love and peace

Tied up or tied down?

Mr Romney's latest little catch phrase seems to be spreading all over the internet. I am not impressed. I have often (I hope you were paying attention) complained about units of measurement that give no idea about the size or volume.

One often hears such guff as “an area the size of seven football fields”, as though all football fields are the same size. Or multiples of the height of Nelson’s column, as if any of us actually has a clue as to its height; or fucking care, for that matter.

Now we have the next leader of the free world (pause while you laugh at that phrase), a man whose IQ is in the same ballpark (how big is a ballpark?) as that of Dubya, measuring women by “binders-full”.

I am aware that I am not the only one who will be deconstructing this phrase, but you chose to come here, it ain’t my fault.

How big is a binder? All the references I can find on-line indicate that none of the women I have ever met would be small enough to fit into one of them, and, as a rule of thumb,  I prefer women to be whole rather than chopped up (apart from Thatcher).

How big is a woman? Unless my eyesight is much worse than I feared, my observations lead me to believe that the size of the human female varies considerably. I will say no more, as I do not wish to cause offence (since when? Ed.).

What is the need to put women in binders? The whole concept is steeped in sexism. You may call me radical, but I believe that ladies should be allowed as much freedom as men, at least up to the point that they start to post pictures of cats on facebook.

No, Mitt, you have presented a useless and sexist, possibly misogynist, analogy. You appear to have all the credentials to take over running the USA and continuing to help its downward plummet in the opinion of the rest of the world.


Comments about binding women will be subject to deletion, unless they are very funny indeed.
