We must ring-fence against cuts in two areas at all costs

I am not terribly interested in what Gorrrrdon Brrrrrrrrrroun said today to his pay- and puppet-masters, although I note that the cuts tomorrow (and no jam today) are indeed in the future: a time when this psychotic, evil bastard will be out of Downing Street.

 

I am not terribly exercised, either, by the latest pack of lies from Mandy, or Hattie’s airbrushing Mrs T out of the official history of women’s firsts in UK politics.  These are the daily indignities of a government of Leftists led by a man who should be sectioned under the Mental Health Acts, although they do have the useful purpose of reminding one just how contemptible these creatures are.

 

What do raise my hackles are the continuing proofs that the Left remains what it is, NuLab or Old: always and everywhere inimical to liberty, justice, and right – and, apparently, high heels on women.  (Stalinist, control-freak buggers.)

 

They have finally been revealed as having sold, for bung and oil, justice in the murder of PC Yvonne Fletcher (of Semley, Wilts), to the tin-pot despot of Libya.

 

And they have decided that we are all suspect, incipient paedos: you, me, the budding-ordinand who runs the Scouts (ahem), all of us.  (Except, I suppose, Lord Mandelson, who is certain to have an exemption from the laws that apply to others: he seems always to have one, after all.)  Forget the guilty: it is the innocent who must register with the Police State.

 

And so, whilst I am altogether in favour of fiscal responsibility, I must concede that there are public works that must be finished and naval stores to be hoarded.

 

For when I survey Labour, particularly its Front Bench, I tremble to think that we as a nation might run short of lampposts, or rope.

Oh, you've had to have Disclosure checks for Scouts since they came in; ditto people in the discernment process (it's doubly stupid as the damned things are not transferable between organisations; I have, or will have, certificates for three dioceses, the Guides, the Scouts, and I think there's probably another I've forgotten somewhere...). The forms aren't even well designed - full of boxes marked as compulsory that you don't actually have to fill in any more; it gives the general impression of being designed by Franz Kafka in one of his gloomier moments.

I was unclear.

What I ought to have said was that by making everyone suspect regardless of intent to work with children, and by basing everything upon a presumption of bad intent even by those who should reasonably be vetted, the Government are placing everyone in a false position, from those with only casual and accidental contact with children to decent volunteers.

If, hypothetically assuming it were possible, you could raise up the ghost of any prior Labor Prime Minister (and his Cabinet) and get a good trade-in on the current lot, who would you raise?

I'm tempted to say, that Wet bastard Heath.

Attlee was at least a gentleman, and indeed a Great War officer. But I can't stick his Front Bench.

Ramsay it is, then. At least he meant it; and with a National Government, one gets Tories.
