Just Plain Wrong

Just how stupid, sad and sick do you have to be to go to a demonstration with a poster like the one being held by the imbecilic man above?

Readers of this blog know only too well that I have an extremely low overall opinion of Cameron, but I do concede that he has his good points. One of them is that he empathises with the disabled in a way that no previous Tory leader (or any Prime Minister, probably ever) has done. His behaviour, and that of his family, over the life and death of his disabled son was exemplary. He cares, and is thoughtful. Though wrong-headed, his ring-fencing of the NHS budget in real terms for the term of this Parliament is a profound statement.

And if anyone thinks that Cameron is motivated by his OWN tax rate, they would be mistaken. The Tories are traditionally a lower-tax party than the alternatives, but that is the product of a Jeffersonian belief that good government is synonymous with an economy that is dominated by the private sector rather than the state. Cameron has, I believe, caved in to the illogical and spiteful left by reducing the top rate of tax by only 5p in the pound, when of course he should have dismantled the Brown time-bomb on Day 1, telling the country in no uncertain terms that it was bad for job creation, bad for tax revenues, and bad for free enterprise (and while he was about it, raising the tax threshold to £10,000 and taking millions of people out of tax altogether). The porridge-brained idiot with his placard could reflect on this, were he capable of lucid thought.

As you must be aware I'm surrounded by people of a similar mindset to porrigde-brain though a surprisingly large number of people in 'meat world' are quietly conservative and don't tend to get involved in union matters.

I became an active member because of a single issue (fatigue through poor rostering) and once I'd solved that problem I found that I rather liked the work - mostly the good rapport I was able to build with the managers. Being a union rep I attend the branch meetings and hear the guest speakers and it does my head in. The total reversals of the truth and insane anti-Thatcherisms - even from people who aren't even old enough to remember.

The rise of a huge un or underemployed class of people leaves more time for class (wealth) hatred more vitriolic than any time in recent history, it augurs ill.

Porridge brained? That bloke is quite clearly Quakers.

Thud - especially an *educated* underemployed class.

I hate the thought of us going the way of Japan.

The incidence of young lads walking into forrests and hanging themselves so bad that they've had to nail signs for help groups to trees.

I'd rather they be angry and jealous than that - if that means them turning Lefty then so be it.

What were we to expect when it was decided to open our job market to the whole world ? Or to drop entry requirements for the police, the fire brigade etc so that applications from young white men could be deliberately ignored.

...not to say that porridge-brain isn't a lefty, middle-aged twat !
