Just on BBC news that a Lib-Dem MP called Lamb has notes
from a meeting with News Corp representative who said
that Cable must not give the deal to buy BSkyB to Ofcom
otherwise News Corp will shit on the Lib Dems from a great height.
Although that’s great news the great british public have now lost interest and it will be even worse when that great big circus starts up shortly – they’ll probably sneak the real bad stuff out then.
Even without all that we’re bollocksed anyway. The British (well the English actually) aren’t into politics, in fact I would say that most of the people are totally politically illiterate (funnily enough I don’t think this applies to the Scottish, Irish and Welsh), and in fact they fucking hate the subject and they’ll hate you when you start trying to educate them on it – they aren’t all Conservative, but they are all conservative. They never take to the streets about anything unless it’s foxhunting, and the ones who do take to the streets are vilified as the great unwashed-fancy-dress-juggling-workshy-you-name-it’s by the rabid press.
I used to hate the French but when Thatcher got in the socialists in Europe were our last hope. At least they get fucking angry every now and again.
But the great British public – pah. You’re wasting your time on them. Ask them why they vote a particular way, and it’s only ever because of the perceived difference it will make to their pocket – it’s never because they think it’s best for everyone, and they’d be shocked if you told them that you thought that was selfish of them.
Look at Thatcher, she convinced about forty per-cent of the people that the tory’s were looking after their interests, because they all thought they were millionaires – and they were right yer know, because anyone could become a millionaire all of a sudden, all you had to do was borrow a million.
We’re no better now, we've got normal working (tax-paying) families turning up at food kitchens because they can't feed their families, while the fat-cats boast routinely of paying less tax than their cleaners. But you can't even increase the fat-cat’s nominal rate of tax (that they don't even pay anyway), cos they might leave the country and they create jobs yer know, just ask anyone. How many percentage points do you think you would have to increase their tax rate before it affected whether they could afford to eat or not. Call their bluff. Let them fuck off if they want to. You live in this country so play by the same rules as the rest of us. How long will it be before it’s a case of, “Oh I know he’s a murdering paedophile but he creates jobs yer know”.
We have a Royal family that lives in the most obscene luxury imaginable and yet we want
them, because they’re good for tourism! I personally believe that most people who give that answer are just too embarrassed to admit to the child-like awe-inspired naivety that is the real reason. Why not bring back public executions, the tourists would flood in, so the great british public would vote for it tomorrow – bollocks to ‘em.
You can’t beat the system, but you can ignore it. Don’t be jealous of them, they might have everything money can buy but they’ve probably got fuck all of what money can’t buy. You’ve got your family and friends and hopefully enough to make ends meet. Don’t get sucked in to being like them. I know I sound defeatist, but all I’m saying is if you’ve got any fight in you, go and use it profitably in France or Scotland cos you’ll get no back-up here – just a hiding from the police while the media and their adoring public applaud.
Don’t know whether I’ll feel like this tomorrow, like.
