a labour government which has consistently lied to the electorate,has slandered and blackened anyone who spoke out about it,has used dubious practices to get its laws passed,has inserted its cronies into the highest posts in the land,has politicised the civil service out of sight(ditto the police)and don't forget,has taken the u.k. into two unlawful wars based on lies.
surely they won't be elected again,but hang on, yes they will. because so many of the electorate are on government job schemes or are being paid (quite highly in most cases) for doing non-jobs(anyone want to apply for the post of "gypsy liasion officer"?
broon winning the next election will be good news for a select few,bankers,his own party,foreign bankrollers of the labour party,foreigners who want to buy into our remaining assets(steel gone,gas nearly gone,electricity about to go,banking nearly all foreign owned-the list is endless). the media are waking up to the idea that young cameroon could,just possibly could,win the next election,so out come the knives. no more honeymoon period for the tories,they must be stopped at all costs. so lets rake about in the background of the possible cabinet,get what muck you can,report and publicise it.
we get what we deserve,personally i haven't voted in the last four elections and don't intend to vote in this one. nothing will change for the electorate,except their liberties will get smaller,their wallets will get thinner,their old age will get poorer,and their future will all but disappear.
on a more positive note,the sun is out here in our village,my dog is pawing at the door for his walkies, and my boys are booking their flights to come out and visit soon. so all isn't lost....

I watched my English-based, meagre income fall by eight percent yesterday and read all there is to read about the reasons, varied as they are, but all agree that Cameron’s election would prop up the pound.

Unselfishly, and according to my few beliefs, I should vote Liberal, but I could be voting for Cable as the next chancellor and I would be among a million Brits forced to go home because the pound would be lower than the Peso.

Well, I don’t know what it’s like to be fagged, is it better than being f*****?

Good god. I had no idea that he was that way inclined. Where on earth did you get that from? That's quite some allegation, and not one I would care to repeat without serious proof.

Compared to Lamont, a dead dog would have been an improvement as chancellor. Mandy. Bit like a banana, I heard once, when some comic described him as a bent, yellow skinned greasy fruit.

The Tories' handling of the economy damn near ruined me, and under GB and the steady period of growth, we had enough of a breathing space to pull ourselves out of the hole and get up on our feet again. So, if for nothing else I will drink to his health and hope that Labour gets in.

Had those slimy tory sh*ts stayed in for much longer I would have been completely rubber ducked, and would not now have a chance to live in Spain.

Makes you wander why anyone bothers to vote, according to the 2005 election in England, the Tories had 35.7% of the vote and get 194 MPs the Labour had 35.5% and end up with 286 MPs.

What percentage of the vote do the Tories need to get a majority?

Most certainly not. I shudder to think what would happen if you repeated that within the reach of his lawyers, unless of course it were true. Even then I'd be pretty damn cautious.

Or do you just like living on the edge?

I remember Jerome K Jerome writing about how one should shun the law, and his editor telling him that while he would always seek to defend his property, should someone come up to him in the street and announce that he intended to institute a legal action against the editor in order to take his watch, he would hand it over there and then and consider himself damned cheaply out of that problem.

Libel can be a rich seam for the litigious to mine, that's all, and the promise of a rich payout can make it worth people's while to dig out even the best hidden.

I watched a curious tale unfold on another forum yesterday. An anonymous poster (like the rest of us) posted something mildly derogatory about a local business, it really wasn’t much to get excited about. There were a few replies, mostly meaningless.

Suddenly a lengthy post appeared from the owner of the affected business, well over the top, which threatened action against the poster, the site owner and anyone else who was even thinking of criticising his business..

It worked. The offending post was immediately removed, and a public apology was posted by the original poster.

As for our supposed anonymity and Rugby Matt feeling safe on Dartmoor, I wish that was the case, but the reality is that any of us can be found without too much trouble.
