C'est La Guerre!

Ummm, I'm back!

Still angry? Yes in many ways. Still angry personally? Nope, happy in a new relationship that makes me so happy I could shit!!

So why back after a long denoument? Because I care! My Babe couldn't care less about, politics, economics, physics, ethics, et al but I love her. The difference is I do and I want to change things by posting here. By change, I probably mean rage against the machine but hey....

more later

I'm back!

Not that I've been missed!

I feel I need to say something about Gordon Brown.

He tells me that he's a conviction politician yet all I see from him is platitudes or falsehoods. He tells me he has a vision but cannot articulate that vision despite his labour leadership hustings. He tells me to give him time to shape his vision and then employs lots of consultants to generate it, maybe. .......But at least the Smith Institute is well paid.

Let's face facts. He's a man devoid of ideas, morals, vision or indeed basic brain function. He is, in effect, a total cunt. And yet he's prime minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. How the flying fuck did that happen? Oh yes, Tony gave it to him over our heads.

for what it's worth I believe his "safe pair of hands on the economy" was the length, breadth and depth of his so called towering intellect and that we have a PM morally, intellectually and politically bereft of any idea as to how to run our great country. The man's a cunt! Full stop

The Rugby World Cup

I am a rugbyphile of the highest order. It is the sport that has given me the greatest pleasure both in playing and spectating. It is a sport so rich in nuance that football fans like Iain Dale don't even understand it!! it is brutal yet balletic, it is painful yet joyful, it is, as my favourite T-Shirt says, ELEGANT VIOLENCE!

I'm also greatly heartened by the current performance of the "minnows"; rugby is becoming a truly global game and that makes me a happy man. No sport "grows" a young person like rugby. It is the real "beautiful game". England 3 Israel 0? Who gives a monkey's fuck!!!!???

I am reluctantly taking down my Maddy poster.

Like many others I currently don't know what to believe and feel that my support is not quite as unequivocal as it was.

I'd like to try to explain why but all the arguments I've tried to post are either fatuous, disingenuous or based on mere supposition. But, but, but.

Part of my issue is that I have not liked the well orchestrated media machine behind the family, they were ill advised (sic) to be so clearly media oriented/manipulated. They had the media spotlight anyway, I feel others may have set them up for a fall through today's obsession with outright media manipulation rather than heartfelt direct appeal. Even this repetition of general MSM comment makes me nervous.

I have other concerns but will keep them to myself for now thankyou.

Update: Still none the wiser but working hard at not jumping to conclusions. Fascinated that the tabloids are also not jumping to conclusions but merely reporting the most lurid details they can possibly get their hands on. Hands up those who think they are beginning to hedge their bets at the expense of the disposable/dispensable McCanns? How well advised were this, let's face it pretty savvy, couple to so completely embrace the notoriously duplicitous press?

David Cameron

Enjoyed reading this paragraph by a VERY impressive young political journo/adviser.

"An ex-CCHQ senior researcher recalls when David and George were fledgling MPs and attending Prime Minister's Questions preparation for Iain Duncan Smith. "The pair of them would walk in, were slightly dismissive of IDS, would rip up the script, give their lines, eat a croissant and breeze out." He adds, "The air of confidence and self-assurance was magnificent. There was, of course, an inner desire to punch them."

Well this chimes well with me. I like the idea that Cameron and Osborne feel confident in their own abilities, running the greatest country on the planet is not for the faint hearted!! I like David Cameron, I like George Osborne and would wish to see his public profile heightened. But I too would like to punch them out of the same "inner desire" shown by conservative ministers, in as much as we all want to do that to people who effortlessly achieve what the rest of us have to work immesurably hard to even cusp.

Herein lies my undoubted respect. I'd love to punch them in the nicest possible way for being clever and confident and clearly highly competent. However, I'd love to punch the living fuck out of Tone and Gordo for being two complete fuckwits and for screwing up the country I love. Fuck you Gordon, I'll give you more than a fucking punch if we ever meet!!
