Don't mess with the Tories

The smug educated lower classes in the Labour Party's creative think tanks prove yet again that breeding is everything. Take for example the rather tedious jibes posted on Labour's feeble effort at "gloves-off" online satire at My David Cameron ...

And then compare it with the original Tory take on the same theme.

Which suggests that however smart the creative on-line classes of North London's smug socialist set might imagine they are, when it comes to genuine "class", they still don't have a lot to offer.

Cameron and Johnson are indeed mere amateurs when it comes to robbing the graves of the nation. Tony "Show me the money" Blair and the Auld Fraud  got there a long time ago; not content with more direct and stealth taxes than ever before in any period of government, Labour are still holding on to an inheritance tax structure that has been grossly inflated by Brown's "fairy money" economy, when he positively rejoiced in the consumer boom built on inflated property values. To describe the subsequent financial bust as "a global recession" takes a lot of nerve, but that is possibly the one commodity that these two both have in common, and spades.

One man's waste is another's savings...

We hope TMP wasn't the only one to spot that Alistair Darling's latest BBC TV interview exposed Labour's weakest spot in the current "we can save the nation through efficiency, not cuts" arguments:-

"If Labour can now apparently make billions in efficiency savings, what have they been doing for the past 13 years, presumably the only answer is that it has been wasting the same tax payer money that is now earmarked for savings on a monumental scale?"

Darling was completely flummoxed around this point.

However, CMD and Osborne are still perilously close to losing it for looking too much like New Labour.  Parading the likes of Clark, Hague and even BoJo reminds the electorate that there really is a big difference. In fact, they might be better off with Ozzy than George. Sharon for PM would also probably work...

And the scary "Smiler Broon" is still always just one step away from throwing a paddy and a stapler. Maybe Andrew Rawnsley can find the Botox and ECT evidence.... the Tories and media should have tried harder to sink Goebbles' heir, Peter Mandelson for good; he's far too good at his evil trade.

The fat lady clears her throat

TMP has been taking a rest in order to recharge for the coming fray.

It should be clear to just about everyone by now that the next election is going to be about as nasty as anything anyone has ever witnessed. The issues are the same for anyone that wins: how to mop up the shambles that now exists at every level of British society, left behind after 13 years of socialist misrule. (Who is old enough to remember the ultimate chancer - Harold Wilson - and his election mantra when he won in 1964?)

Even the Labour Party itself accepts that it has no record whatever on which to fight an election, and can only rely on rubbishing the Tories. Who aren't doing a bad job of handing round the ammunition.

A key issue might be separating the stupidity from the willfulness. There is enough hard evidence that Labour has specifically set about a programme of "social engineering" to gerrymander the entire nation in its electoral favour (as observed a long time ago in this blog); Blair has stated that many of his questionable and largely undemocratic actions (at least by all previous parliamentary standards) were done in the name of a crusading belief in his own self righteousness. And Brown has happily taken over Blair's"presidential" heritage and mantle and continued to shove anyone that gets in his way, and stick two fingers up the parliamentary process that once formed a large part of our democracy.

What the country needs more than anything now is intelligent team leadership and a return to some effort at consensus, to replace the many undeserving cabals of self interested minorities that have been so damaging to our society for the past 13 years of misdirected social engineering.
