Prime Minister and Expenses

Too Little, Too Late, Gordon Brown

This morning, PM Gordon Brown told Andrew Marr that he wants to ‘clean up’ parliament.
He wants a ‘code of conduct’ for MPs to follow.
The thing is, there’s already a code of conduct – it’s called the law!

All we,  ‘the people’ want, is to have reasonable laws and for people to follow them, equally.

Special Privileges

Gordon BrownMembers of Parliament are special. They have special responsibilities. In a nutshell, they represent us in the speaking house, the parler-a-ment. This simple fact makes them special. Within the speaking house they are allowed to say quite derogatory things about each other which in the outside world could be libellous. But this is the nature of the game. This is the special status that exists in Parliament for our representatives so that they can speak without fear or hindrance.

This simple freedom seems to have been forgotten.

Maelstrom

Maelstrom

Now they must all watch what they say, toe the party line, think of the future and their reputations…… Big Brother watches everything.

Now they think that they need extra-special status and self-justifiably grab whatever beneifits and remunerations they ‘think’ they are due.

This is the show we have now stumbled upon; evading tax, feathered nests and the nepotic practices of a third rate African despot, that is.

Greed

From left to right of the ruling classes, they’re greedily identical. Depending on how much wealth they currently have, their aspirations to further wealth naturally vary – but the greed in their minds is the same.

Shocked

The PM Gordon Brown has said he’s appalled and shocked by the revelations – despite being one of the ringleaders during the information-blocking process!   Now, in a further devious twist, in the interview, he’s not-so-subtly trying to shift the focus away from MPs again!

He just can’t stop it, can he?   He’s in total denial and his brain is in action debt!  Fiddle, fiddle,  fiddle.  Hide, hide, hide.

So yet another ‘code of conduct’ is supposed to be the panacea!   It’s just staggering ineptitude and a total denial of the events in recent financial history where our money systems, all obeying a ‘code of conduct’, all visibly folded. And he wants more of the same?

He says that he,

“…wants a clean-up of all public institutions – such as the NHS and the BBC”

This is the “smoke and mirrors” distraction, which could be all well and good, especially in the champagne-bottle-strewn corridors of the BBC.  Unfortunately for Brown, these institutions are already ‘code of conduct’-ed to the gunwales!

We need a Code of Conduct Czar we’ve got so many!  Call it OfCodeOfConduct!  OfCon for short, with the emphasis on Con.

NHS?

All changes since 1997 have been a Brown/Blair initiative. This means it’s their idea and their fault.  He can’t pass the buck!

Like MPs expenses, the power for change is as directly in his hands now as it always has been, and it’s disingenuous to shift blame again. He’s Prime Minister for fuck’s sake! If he can’t do it, what’s he for?

In fact, it reveals the depths of psychotic deception to which our leader, Gordon Brown, will plummet in a vain quest to change Britain (to what?) before the axe falls on him. He’s frantically grasping at straws, trying to stay afloat in the maelstrom of his own creation and management.

This psychosis means that all his good works (and to be fair, there have been many); minimum wage, better family allowances, better health service, 12 week operation wait, new hospitals, better child care, rail electrification etcthey are all as nought.

  • They’ve been completely cancelled out by the institutionalised corrupt practices at all levels of society under his watch.
  • Most will inevitably be rolled back by some future government, disguised as part of a ‘wider process of reform’, as they’ll say.

And if this future government is a bunch of Nazis then we’re in big do-dos.

Because the bad things that Brown & Blair have started – e.g.

  • the police state
  • surveillance everywhere
  • shoot to kill
  • war on terror
  • arrest and detention without trial for indefinite periods
  • torture
  • kidnapping
  • lies to further a war
  • massive reliance on databases and their subsequent loss!

…many of these won’t be rolled back. It’s that chip-chip away at freedom. Eventually when it’s all gone, then there’ll be a realisation. And if we don’t fall into the Maelstrom, there’ll be a bloodbath in it’s place…

What Must be Done?

Simple really.

  • Sack people who are incompetent with minimum compensation.    This means No Payment For Failure.  Make sure that this applies to politicians and all hitherto cushioned leaders, business or otherwise.  It’s what 99% of the population have to endure.  Enforce this by passage of a “Corrupt Payments and Bonus Law”.
  • Pass a law to retrospectively get money off the corrupt and incompetant bankers.  This is what we’d do in the fight against organised crime.  It’s what we do against dole-scroungers who’ve abused the system.   This is what we do against tax-evaders.   It’s the same thing – Just do it!
  • No more Codes of Conduct.  Make proper, morally clear, enforceable law.
  • An end to all priviledge.  Equal treatment under the law and one law for everyone.
  • Use the army to get our money back from Tax Havens.  Give them something useful to do instead of propping up heroin production in Afghanistan…  It’s our money that’s been siphoned off – go and get it.   We won’t need an ‘International Banking Code of Conduct’ for the future.  I mean, what would little Cayman, Bermuda and Lichenstein really do if a troop from Norton Manor Camp pull up at the front door of the ****** Bank Of ***** and ask for all our money back?  If the army can’t do that and protect the wealth of our nation, then retire them.

Manchester launch for ID cards

Jacqui Smith insists that people's personal data would be more secureGiven all that happened in UK politics since last …er…week,

Hazel Blears from Machester!….it’s clear the reason why Manchester has been chosen as Wacky Backy Jacqui Smith’s test site for ID Cards…

Harriet Harman from er...…Two wimmin got up Brown’s nose this weekend… – one is always trumpeting her Manchester roots… – the other’s roots are somewhat vague….

Jacqui Smith - BrownerBut when three women are in the show…?

And the country needs a leader…?

Sincere Words to Ignore

News Items

The only news item missing is that from a premiership football club at the wrong end of the league regarding the future employment status of it’s manager…

@AmazonThere have been two news items in the UK today that must surely have everyone either rolling their eyes in the air, or laughing down their sleeves, as to say that we’ve seen it all before is itself a bit of a cliche.

News Item Number One

GCHQ DoughnutAgency denies internet spy plans

“GCHQ is not developing technology to enable the monitoring of all internet use and phone calls in Britain, or to target everyone in the UK.
Similarly, GCHQ has no ambitions, expectations or plans for a database or databases to store centrally all communications data in Britain.
The new technology that GCHQ is developing is designed to work under the existing legal framework.”
– GCHQ statement

News Item Number Two

HarrietHarman: ‘I don’t want to be PM’“I don’t want to be prime minister and I don’t want to be leader of the party. It’s simply not true and under no circumstances would I want to be a candidate.”

Now Let’s Vote!

Do you think?

  1. Both statements are true?
  2. One or other statement is true?
  3. Neither statement is true?

Answer

If you answered 1 or 2, I don’t believe you or you are extremely young or gullible.

It’s going to be fun watching this awkward squirming moment in history pan out….

As an aside: I wonder if Harriet, if it all ends up as it appears, will use some of her experience gained as legal officer for  The National Council for Civil Liberties (now Liberty), to roll back some of the draconian measures that have been implemented by the government that she’s been part of and voted with at almost every moment?

Government Database Lie

Question. When Is Database not a Database?

Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

Answer.  When it’s a Government Lie

And now, here is the news…

Plan to monitor all internet use

The home secretary, Wacky Backy Jacqui, has decided to scrap her naff plans for a (big) database but wants details of ALL internet activity to be held and organised for security services.

The ‘new’ system would track all e-mails, phone calls and internet use, including visits to social network sites.

This is apparently being called:

….a modernisation of UK police surveillance tactics!!!

Database Usage Explained

Fortunately, I’m not that thick to be taken in by this crap.  All the tens of thousands of database administrators and designers across the land must be at once giggling at the ineptitude of the statement but fearful of it’s monstrosity.  Most will routinely (like me) join and merge data from a plethora of different systems.  It’s not hard.

So Jacqui Smith;  her with a loose grasp of personal rights and wrongs regarding the public purse, and a demonstrably poor regard for our historical freedoms, is saying that all this data will be kept… where?

  • In a loose-leaf file?
  • In a scrapbook?
  • In some spreadsheets?
  • In a powerpoint display?
  • In a few Microsoft Word documents?
  • In PC Plod’s back pocket?
  • In one or more separate modern inter-communicating databases?

Leave your answers in the comments box.

As for political responses;

  • the Tories just want to score brownie points saying lots of ‘small’ databases is good but one ‘big’ one is bad.   (big and small are relative here – the data storage requirements are colossal, rivalling Google)
  • the Liberals are typically wishy-washy, talking about ‘balance’.

Fuck the lot of them – I’m off for a lobotomy.


Compulsory Voluntary Work in the UK?

I kid ye not!

Prime Minister Gordon Brown plans to make it part of the next Labour manifesto, he said yesterday.

But what’s really going on?

Brown chose to make his announcement in the gaudily extreme and populist Murdoch title, The News of the World.  (see Kids’ charity call-up: Brown planning to force 50 hours work on teens ).   Why not the excellent No10 website which shows a different mindset to everything?

The reactions in the NOTW article and other tabloids have been suitably strong, and that I think, is the reason for it’s publication in the NOTW.  It’s to gauge the mood and set the trend; there’s an election looming!  He’s out-stepped the Tories in right-winged-ness!

However, on the No10 website there’s an article where the PM confirms that our community policing is to stay (see Neighbourhood policing “here to stay”).  In this, and combined with the above, I see his communal spirit pushing through.  It’s a recognition of the fact that communities, to a large extent, police themselves.

For instance, it’s well known that large matriarchal figures exist on the large estates and have a huge governance on the internal running of schools.  Ask any teacher.  This governance is totally outside the law.  It’s a fact of life.

I see Brown’s overall words as trying to offer a concrete substance to this fact.

But it’s the way it’s done that’s bad.  It tars all young people with the same brush, when clearly, we and they are all individuals.  I don’t think it’s a one-size-fits-all solution, like a National Service for free.  Altruism comes from within, and to impose it from without isn’t altruism and doesn’t enforce a sense of social responsibility.  Quite the opposite.  People will see it as Big Brother, like Comrade Stalin forcing the crowds to smile for the camera.  They’ll smile, but they’ll hate it and reject it.

But it’ll please the Colonel Blimps and outraged-from-Tunbridge-Wells types for a bit.  It may keep their votes his way.
