"Oh, I say, is that a rock?" "My word, I do believe it is. Never mind, let's continue." "I daresay you're right; I'm sure the passengers won't notice."
For years I've laughed at them and thought they'd come to their senses, all the while sensing that it was hope against hope. Let's face reality: the MPs we elect truly are thick. David Cameron is the most perfect example of a European Union technocrat and, believe it or not, I think Great Britain, being the country to bring down, was the first country to ever have one. Major? Blair? Brown? Cameron? Shills all.
Cameron, however, deserves a special mention. Against the odds he was parachuted into the leadership of the Conservative Party and from nowhere he went into No.10 in a vote that surprised many but seemed legitimate at the time. He's perfect for the role - almost born to it one could say - no thoughts of his own, no original ideas that would truly benefit this country, nothing radical, just a milksop centre-ground Communitarian third way in line with the UN. If he wants to be taken seriously he'd invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty - but he thinks we don't know so he won't.
We want Open Primaries for all; we want the power of recall if our MP fails to live up to the manifesto; we want pledges to be honourable in law. In short, we want to get what we vote for, not time-servers, time-wasters or careerists who see it as a fast-track to fame and fortune. We want honourable people who have integrity, not these waste of space numpties who can't even be arsed to get acquainted with government treaties, let alone turn up for debates and votes. We want MPs who do what WE say, not follow the whipped Party line once they're elected. We've had enough of their - aargh! expletive deleted - crap.
Time and time again it happens. When the heck are we, as a people and powerful in our numbers, going to wake up and get out on the streets - because that is what I think it will take. I hope we do it before we go a la continental, aka more tasers, water cannon, an armed domestic police force and an EU Army get into gear. We've already seen a hint of things to come with the opening up of top Police ranks to foreigners. It's spun as getting in the best man for the job from America, Australia or Canada but it won't be: it will be top police chiefs coming in from European Union countries.
I've really had enough of all the lies from government. Total losers, one and all. Angry, frustated, disgusted, dismayed? You bet your sweet bippy I am.
PS: Look, laugh and fight back: The EU's 'Troll Patrol'
The European Parliament is to spend almost £2 million on press monitoring and trawling Eurosceptic debates on the internet for "trolls" with whom to debate in the run-up and during euro-elections next year amid fears that hostility to the EU is growing.I guess that's our taxes being spunked up against the wall again.
