Having taken a prolonged leave of absence from blogging due to the tiresome ramblings of a socialist witterer* on each of my posts which filled me with so much ire I nearly shot my Mac, I feel the diabolical catastrophe that was last night's election bloodbath requires some comment. 1). If you voted for BNP or UKIP, you're a tonker. Not only because you're either a far-left extremist who considers Mein Kampf essential holiday reading or because you think for a second the EU will relax its tentacles because Lord Pearson of Rannoch has asked them to nicely, but because you've shored up the Labour vote. By denying seats to the Conservatives (or even the LibDems, at a pinch: despite their Obamania, support for the Euro etc they are at least LIBERAL). 2) If you voted for Labour, you're a tool. The last 13 years have been so insufferably vile, so filled with spin, counterspin, doublespin, backbiting, barefaced lies, financial ruin, Nannyism, snooping, deliberate uncontrolled immigration in the name of 'multiculturalism', 'diversity', 'equality', a monstrous welfare state, surveillance and Ed Balls that only windowlickers and their ilk can possibly find anything good to say about the Labour party. 3) Cameron could have been a lot stronger; he should have taken the gloves off and let his opposite number have it. Gentlemanlike behaviour, though terribly laudable, is not what is required here. Blowing up Brown (in a metaphorical sense, of course) *is*. There is so much that could have been pointed out about the malevolent meglomaniac currently hanging on to the doorframe of No10 and strenuously resisting any attempt to dislodge him - but wasn't. C- for effort.
Rather than sit about and watch the economy tank, I'm off to the pub. I may be some time.
*at least I think he was a socialist. Certainly a witterer. Either way, a pain in the arse.
