I typed the following post last evening, but left it in draft after realizing that blind rage was driving me. After some minor editing and removal of a paragraph on Osborne’s statement on his mismanagement of the economy, and the addition of the final paragraph, it sums up my personal feelings of last evening and a wakeful night, therefore I am posting it here, this morning.
It was uncanny seeing them all come back in the middle of August, without the impact of the Party Conferences, to first remind us of just how loathsome and obnoxious these supposed specimens of our countrymen and women really are. The MPs I mean, I did not get to see anything from the House of Lords nor check Hansard for their debate.
I occasionally flicked from the business news programmes to the Parliament Channel to watch these expense-accruing and money-counting, non-entities, posture over the riots, which as the better-informed public well knows, have been coming their way for years, as a direct result of these MPs’ greed, incompetence, ignorance and hypocrisy. Nothing any of them said cut any ice on the social unrest, nothing worth repeating is yet available from Hansard, linked here.
These morons and worse, some of whom such as Vaz, even appearing on TV to witter, as if they had the first idea of what occurs in the nation that they have destroyed, almost invoked in me a strong urge to vomit.
Apart from the criminal masterminds behind the rioting, many of the uneducated, lost and mindless looters, appear from court reports, to have been carried away on the impulse of the moment. Our politicians, (who have created the society in which so many of Britain’s unschooled people are now condemned to spend out their lives of misery, relieved mainly by alcohol, fast food and all too often illegal substances,) are altogether on a much lower level of humanity. Their performance in the House of Commons yesterday, fittingly led by the boorish and hypocritical Prime Minister, thoroughly disgusted me. Fifteen months has he been in supposed ‘power‘, fifteen months in which he has achieved nothing meaningful, nor even made any attempt so to do.
