Blairite Dissembling

I can't wait to see the back of this government. Control freaks and crooks, that's what they are. All wrapped up in their New Labour dream. I find it amazing that the 80% of the electorate that didn't go out to vote for these bozos are still unable to agree as to how to get rid of them. Yes 80% didn't vote for them.

We've got a vindictive dimwit as Defence Secretary, who has taken umbrage at ITN for disclosing that the Ministry of Defence was sneaking injured soldiers back from Afghanistan at nightime so they could conceal how bad things had got. So what does Des Browne do? He orders the MoD to ban ITN journalists from making Remembrance Day broadcasts from Iraq or Afghanistan!

Then we get a hypocritical Ben Bradshaw, the Environment minister, who is preaching recycling is best but fails to do it for himself with his own garbage. We've still got the horrendous Standards Board stifling debate in our local councils, and then there is the Deputy Prime Minister swanning it around south-east Asia telling the likes of Malaysia how "tolerant" they are!

But the best is yet to come. Lord Levy has apparently spilt the beans to the Met that it was Tony himself "that told me to do it" over the cash for peerages scandal. The Tories are making hay!

False accounting charges could be brought against anyone who the police believe
was involved in an alleged conspiracy. As well as Labour officials, it could include politicians such as Mr Blair. Detectives have so far been investigating two main allegations. One is whether, by offering honours in return for financial support, the 1925 Honours (Prevention of Abuses) Act has been breached. Any offence under this law carries a maximum two-year jail term.

Let's hope one Blair is about to feel the collar of another Blair and the cheesy spiv gets his marching orders at last!
