Going to hell in a handcart

Since 1979 this county has been ruled by Thatcher and sons of Thatcher, yes Blair is one of her children too. The rhetoric was to improve our lot but the reality was to empower rich people at the expense of the rest of us.

They stole from the councils, stole from the people and lined their nests. She brought in universal business rates that took money away from councils, then she set up council tax to steal from the people, her bastard progeny "new labour" then oversaw the biggest swindle of all time in bailing out the banks until their successors could sell the assets to their friends. Privatisation stole assets that we had all paid for and gave them away at cut price to their money grubbing mates, now we have the Tory pygmies blaming the working poor for all our ills!

"Les aristocrates a la lanterne" I say vive la revolution.

Michael Sheen gave a brilliant speech in Tredegar in defence of the NHS
"To those who have discarded all principles, save that of profit before all else; to those who have turned their backs on the very idea of a truly democratic society, and aligned themselves to nothing but self-interest; to those who have betrayed the vision of equality, and justice, and compassion for all - that vision that provided the crucible from which came forth the National Health Service - I say to you, as Aneurin Bevan said in Trafalgar Square in 1956: you have besmirched the name of Britain; you have made us ashamed of the things of which formerly we were proud; you have offended against every principle of decency and there is only way in which you can even begin to restore your tarnished reputation. Get out. Get out! Get out!"
I can't say how good it was to hear these words, especially now that we have suffered another general election under the same tired old first past the post system that Blair promised to reform and was also 2010 election promise of the Liberal Democrats!

All you stupid little Englanders, Tories and other ne'er-do-wells please pack your bags and scurry off to your hole in the ground, GET OUT. GET OUT! GET OUT!!!

Cameron wants to ban encryption without understanding that most of what he proposes is not possible.

The Home Office set up a Twitter account and then tweet that they have arrested "immigration offenders" without understanding the Contempt of Court Act.
Both of these is happening when there are some of the brainiest people employed by both the civil service and by political parties.

The government determined to carry on with the privatisation of the Post Office when every other privatisation have been of dubious value to tax payers and the paying public.

Grayling wreaks havoc on the judicial system.

IDS wrecks the lives of countless disabled people and the working poor.

Gove makes such a mess of the Education Department that he is "promoted" to Chief Whip.

I read a description of these people in a forward to Nicholas Nickleby where he describes the people running "schools" as incapable pettifoggers and, reading that, in my mind I can only see Cameron, and his Bullingdon club mates and the lickspittles that enabled the present government.

Don't get me started on the situation in Carmarthenshire where cronyism is the only way to go and Buggin's turn gives any old fool the job of their dreams.
