This blog has been busy with comments about MP’s expenses; mainly from SNP cretins who cant quite grasp the rather obvious; that is that their attempts to damage Labour (never the Tories) are rendered completely worthless when their own MP’s are also involved; in fact their own leader Salmond (the spiv) has been fingered for eating £800 worth of London expenses grub or claiming to have eaten it; when Parliament wasn’t even sitting; this rather negates their silly attempts to blame others and try to excuse themselves. They have however by their clumsy comments kept this going perhaps longer than its blogosphere shelf life which has allowed me to broaden the discussion to include the wider issue of what kind of society we actually live in. My conclusion is that we are worse than some and no better than many others.
Inequality and unfairness lead to envy and on to corruption and dishonesty; society rots from the top down. When the majority of people look up at the privileged and wealthy; many of whom gain such wealth and power by inheriting it or exploiting those who are less powerful they think to themselves; why should I accept that these people have a divine right to these things. I will grab what I can just as they have and I won’t be to concerned about how I do it, this is the template for the ‘devil take the hindmost’ capitalist society, this is why I’m in politics; to change that society to one where everyone is treated fairly and to get rid of corruption, yes I know I’m a saint.
To achieve this we must start at the top. It will come as no surprise to some that by ‘the top’ I refer of course to the world’s greatest and most successful parasites, the Ruritanian farce that is the ‘House of Windsor’ (much loved by Salmond the spiv) watching them at the changing of the guard the other day it was easy to imagine that “Christopher Robin and Alice” were watching with me. Standing there; some dribbling; it was a source of wonder that the balcony they were on was able to take the weight of all the toy swords, medals and baubles that they were adorned with, farce does not suffice. Can we honestly expect a clean society with this nonsense going on? The Sunday Observer columnist Gerald Warner calls her majesty a great bulwark for democracy and calls on her to dissolve Parliament while foaming about unelected politicians in cabinet, whit?
Not prepared to restrict himself to cutting ribbons and dressing up like a Gilbert & Sullivan extra; the seriously wandered Prince Charles abuses his position through his contact with a fellow royal from some desert kingdom to overturn the plans for a development at Chelsea Barracks, the desert king owns the land you see. The fact that the architectural design was the creation of a top architect did not stop him from interfering, he thinks he knows about architecture and he is a prince after all. Meanwhile we learn that the cost to you and me the tax payers of protecting Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice while abroad on their gap year was £500,000. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth often referred to as the world’s richest woman applies for and is awarded a grant to repair fencing at Balmoral, does the moat cleaning and duck house MP’s expenses still look as bad? Perhaps there are lots of people out there who don’t take pleas for honesty seriously, why should they when they look around them.
Start at ‘the top’ and then move down through the lords and Barons and the military upper classes and gut out the lot, then we can think about creating an honest society, start admitting the truth.
