Vote for Change

Clegg: Size matters. Well at least his jokes are funny aren’t they? I have to admit that thus far, which is only twenty minutes in, my opinions remains that Clegg remains the better of the three. Cameron continues to spend his time having a go at both Brown and Clegg, whilst Brown alternates between defending himself and talking up his opponent in Clegg. It seems Brown may have partly given up on the election and is thinking he would rather have a Lib Dem government than take a “vote for change”.

Now lets take a second and think about the Conservative slogan, “Vote for Change.” Living in a Conservative constituency I would like to warn the people who think that this change is supposed to be a good thing. My MP is someone very high up in the Conservative Party, he holds a lot of power and is generally well liked within his party. He’s also is well known for putting his friends ahead, often paying contractors friendly to his party much more (at one point up to twice) of what was quoted by other independent contractors. He has one of the lowest, if not the lowest expense bill from the last tax year, which sounds good doesn’t it? Except you would struggle to find an MP whose salary is higher or close to that of his. His local conscience doesn’t stretch beyond those who vote for him, despite claiming he is there for his whole constituency. Oh and he’s a prat. So lets recap; bent, spends government money on quotes that benefit him rather than the local borough, has not improved policing, which has instead became worse whilst crime is on the rise both in serious violence as well as drugs. That the change you would like? Get rid of one government you’re unhappy with to replace it with a bunch of slimy, bent career criminals. Yes I realise that they are not convicted criminals, but in the manner which they run my borough, and the manner in which they will run the country will be criminal, and once again it will be those of us who do not make the top money, who cannot afford private health care and do not spend our weekends at the Country Club who will suffer.

So people, don’t get fooled by Cameron and his face which looks much like Eyjafjallajokull mid volcanic eruption, you will not be voting for change. You’ll just doom your country, and you will be wishing a volcano would come up and swallow our country whole.

How Labour Lost The Election

So I’m just thinking, Gordon Brown promising that if he gets the vote for PM, he’ll stay in office for the full five years… Is that really a good thing? I’m not a conservative, far from it, under general circumstances I would probably be a Labour voter, or in worst case scenario just join the Independent Party, however I’m afraid that David Cameron using the phrase “Five more years of Gordon Brown” has a bigger impact  in the negative sense than Brown saying it has in a positive sense.

I do realise that this is a promise Brown has to make, not that it holds much clout as everyone will still remember that Tony Blair made that same promise only to fuck off into oblivion once things started to go wrong. Two years is a bit far off five isn’t it Tony? I do think that Gordon Brown means his promise, I don’t think he has any intentions of stepping down if he does bring Labour forward to their fourth consecutive term in office. Lets face it, things can hardly get much worse for the country, and if he was going to fuck off chances are he would have done so a long time ago. Considering all the criticism he has suffered it almost makes you wonder if he actually enjoys pain a bit too much, and in the future may be better off becoming a regular client with a Dominatrix.

It’s not all bad for our Gordon though, at least he seems more able to smile these days, perhaps it’s the knowledge that in a months time it may very well all be over and he can move on from the mess he’s been stuck in for so long. In which case our new Prime Minister will be one whose party thinks that having compulsory Sex Education for 15 year olds would be a bad thing in a country where both pregnancy and Sexually Transmitted Diseases are getting ridiculously common amongst teenagers.

How about me for Prime Minister? Higher tax for rich people without wanting to make the normal family suffer, sex education for teenagers as I am tired of seeing 14 year old kids pushing prams, lager or fag in hand, and retraining bankers as teachers? Not on my watch, I say send them to Australia, after all that’s what we used to do to criminals who had done a lot less than ruin an entire country’s economy. Surely it would be better than a hung parliament which according to the polls is where we’re heading.
