Journal Entry No2 by TC

Today the Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez, has been in the UK (a guest of London’s left-wing mayor, Ken Livingston). Various socialist / Marxist / leftie sympathisers were available to make comments such as “This shows there is a better way than capitalism - where fairer wealth-distribution is the way forward.” Of course, they didn’t mention how this wealth will be produced to satisfy the materialistic aspirations of the workers in this workers’ paradise, but no matter, Socialism had no satisfactory answer to that - hence its global collapse. Political topiary (pruning the social hedge-funds into a socialist Utopia) just assumed the hedge will continue to grow, no matter how many leaves and branches are chopped.

Mr Chavez did one public service, however - more Political Topiary actually - though of a different kind. He tried to cut the Bush down to size. This time, just the George W Bush, not the whole social fabric. (After all, no one is as good at wrecking a country’s whole social fabric as GW - several million Iraqis can’t be that wrong!). More specifically, Chavez dubbed Bush a “terrorist” for his Middle East policies. Many observers found this breathtakingly inaccurate and over-played. After all, there is no objective evidence that the US President has any Middle East policies whatsoever. Formulating policies would imply a considered, intelligent and strategic approach. There is severe doubt that Bush can actually say those words, let alone understand them and then to actually combine them into a political policy would seem to be really taking the joke too far.

The US has banned its exports of weapons to Venezuela, on the grounds that Mr Chavez’ government is not doing its bit in the global fight against terrorism. However, the Americans only have themselves to blame - The US Secret Service is just too good at protecting their President to allow a Venezuelan hit-squad anywhere near Bush.

And what of the UK’s ruling Labour Party? I’m not one to intrude on private grief yet… and yet… the stunningly bad local election results have had amazing ramifications in national government. Blair is going to be tough on election defeats and tough on the causes of election defeats. Suicide is clearly his best option - but not the one a politician would choose. No, Blair is busy shafting everyone else. One-third of his Cabinet sacked or moved and now letters - veritable political shopping lists - sent to the new top ministers, setting-out what Tone wants them to do… their jobs might be a good idea, leaving Tone to go on holiday to Italy. (Well, he does less harm there).

Blair today has decided that the criminal justice system ain’t working. Yes, that IS thirteen years after Bambi (remember, he looked so young) promised to tackle crime, nine years after the song about it can only get better opened the big black door for Blair. So what has happened in the meantime…

err….

emm…

well…

Oh yes! 43 new bills about crime passed through Parliament. Most impressive, Mr Blair… you have an awfully big pile of white paper there. All the better to confuse us with? What we need is the Andrex puppy to spend a good year dragging the toilet roll over that particular pile of crap. Even then, Blair would simply blame the dog. Don’t believe me? Today Blair blamed the political culture and (by implication) the judiciary for the mess we’re in. Now, if 43 laws cannot do something to change sentencing, early releases, clear-up rates, escalating violent crimes, massively increased gun use and so on… well it must be the judges’ fault. Stands to reason. Wrong. It’s your fault. Yours and mine - for keep electing such an impotent, headline-grabbing, spinning and useless government in the first place - but, worse still, in the second place - and, for heaven’s sake, why a third time? Mr Blair’s road to our Hell may be paved with good intentions but it needs the puppy-dispenser running behind to sort out the mess.

So, if you’re raped or murdered in your house tonight, or killed on the streets tomorrow who should your relatives blame? Well it depends. If in the UK, Blair. If it Iraq, Bush… but with excellent support from his more able and more experienced best international political friend.

Sorry, did you say blame the criminals? Pointless! Why they won’t take responsibility for their actions - it’s not politic.

TC.

Hi J

Hehe, don't hold back any punches!

Ken Livingstone is an asshole. Tony Blair is busy building his own coffin. Soon the last nail will be hammered in. Bush is living on a cloud of self delusion and thinks he's God's right hand man, more like the Devil's left footed lackey.

Love this line:

All the better to confuse us with? What we need is the Andrex puppy to spend a good year dragging the toilet roll over that particular pile of crap

True Socialism will never happen, the leaders are too busy lining their own nests making sure they are rich and comfortable. They don't really care about anyone other than themselves.

Blair is in panic mode at the moment. He knows the end is nigh and is desperate. He is rapidly becoming a characature. He should give up gracefully and accept defeat. The trouble is the next lot will be equally as bad and dangerous. I don't hold out any hope for improvement. Politicians are a microcosm of our Society today, where everyone only care about themselves and don't give a toss for others.

I'm just listening to Governments latest hairbrained idea - teaching British values to children. Falling off my chair laughing. How ridiculous. Who decides what British values are? What exactly do they intend to teach the children Victorian attitudes of repression and oppression. The British Empire, i.e. - take over foreign countries, force them to accept Christianity,narrow attitudes, two tier Society - the idle rich and the exploited poor, racism etc. What do they think it is going to achieve. It certainly won't make for a better Society.

They'd do better teaching children values such as honesty, right from wrong, caring for others. Trouble is that politicians would have to learn those values first seeing as at the moment they make appalling role models. They'd do better looking at a way of making people realise that materialistic greed ultimately doesn't bring happiness and fulfillment, it's like a short-term drug high. They'd do better stopping entry to so-called asylum seekers who are criminals - like that Kurdish guy in the news yesterday who pulled the wool over everyone's eyes and grew fat and rich dealing heroin, living the life of luxury in a mansion in N. London. They'd do better teaching children parenting skills so their children don't become undisciplined hooligans expecting everything as their right without earning it, dragging Society even further into the mire.

Bah Humbug!

Hi James

I read this and thought, Hey, James is having a bit of a rant this morning ... then I read Nina's reply LOL.gif

More specifically, Chavez dubbed Bush a “terrorist” for his Middle East policies. Many observers found this breathtakingly inaccurate and over-played. After all, there is no objective evidence that the US President has any Middle East policies whatsoever.

Nope, he does have policies - they involve oil.

Formulating policies would imply a considered, intelligent and strategic approach. There is severe doubt that Bush can actually say those words,

Heck, I've heard him say "strategic" any number of times ... it means "We're gonna bomb the b***s."

The US has banned its exports of weapons to Venezuela, on the grounds that Mr Chavez’ government is not doing its bit in the global fight against terrorism. However, the Americans only have themselves to blame - The US Secret Service is just too good at protecting their President to allow a Venezuelan hit-squad anywhere near Bush.

Very sadly, global arms sales are spiralling out of control. The UK and the US are two of the biggest suppliers. So we arm these people (Mobuto, Saddam, Al-Quiada etc) and then have to deal with the consequences. It makes the balance sheet look good - arms sales to other people --> arms sales to our own military --> war expenses and "good works" (a pittance to clean up the results in comparison). Not a "real" "product" at all. In the same way that "the environement" was never taken into financial consideration in planning and so on till recently I think military spending should be entirely disallowed. OK, it does mean we need to "make" things (bombs, tanks, new hospitals ...) but it is not a true "production" or addition to humanity.

Blair today has decided that the criminal justice system ain’t working. Yes, that IS thirteen years after Bambi (remember, he looked so young) promised to tackle crime, nine years after the song about it can only get better opened the big black door for Blair. So what has happened in the meantime…

We've washed out hands of it. The cameras will pick up bad behaviour. ASBOs will stop it. Intervene and you're likely to be treated as a criminal yourself for daring to take an interest.

What we need is the Andrex puppy to spend a good year dragging the toilet roll over that particular pile of crap.

As soon as you mentioned paper I could hear the puppy whining to be let out rofl.gif

Sorry, did you say blame the criminals? Pointless! Why they won’t take responsibility for their actions - it’s not politic.

Responsibility ... something we all have to take for our lives, communities, actions. About time our so-called leaders showed us the way.

Cheers,

Hi J, Fran

I guess I do sound a bit like a bear with a sore paw (well eye) crab.gif boxing.gif balrog.gif

>F>We've washed out hands of it. The cameras will pick up bad behaviour. ASBOs will stop it. Intervene and you're likely to be treated as a criminal yourself for daring to take an interest.

very true. ASBOs aren't a deterent. They are now becoming a badge to be worn proudly and boasted about.

>F>Responsibility ... something we all have to take for our lives, communities, actions. About time our so-called leaders showed us the way.

and the moon is made of cream cheese.

I'm so sorry to be the one to shatter your fantasy. It was a hard decision to make but I thought it best not to leave you in delusion.

Wallace and Gromit have been arrested. Their trial begins tomorrow.
