Government by gimmick.
Posted by Big John on February 16, 2011
Today our country is governed by a bunch of
crooks professional politicians who for the most part have no experience of actual work and little knowledge of the ‘real world’, as can be demonstrated by our Tory ‘toff’ Prime Minister from ‘Planet Dave’ as he tries to ‘spin’ us his latest gimmick … “The Big Society”. (I wonder what happened to his other great idea for a voluntary “national citizen service” ?)
I won’t go into details of “Call me Dave’s” proposals, as they are well covered from all angles on TV and in the press, but I must say that his presentation made me want to puke as this Eton educated ex-member of the Bullingdon Dining Club did his shirt sleeved ‘man of the people’ act once again. Someone should tell him that Eva Peron invented this trick to give her dictator husband a new ‘image’.
I do like the idea that people should be more involved in running certain aspects of our country, but I suspect that “The Big Society” will be no more effective than the “Back to Basics” campaign of 1993, and I’m sorry to say that the words …
… “deckchairs” and “Titanic” keep springing to mind.
