Until the 6th May, this might be the
most important page on this site! CB has never voted Labour Independent, Liberal, SDP or any other extreme party. It is unlikely that CB will vote, in fact CB will not be in the Country on May 6th! BUT, now the Country is being asked to decide! Would you like to
evaluate the choices? OK, Gordon Brown, David Cameron or Nick Clegg! In
reality it is Gordon Brown OR David Cameron (read my page on The Vote to understand the 2 party cartel and read my page on The Leadership to help you evaluate your options).
1. Nick Clegg. This one CB finds the hardest! Before the Lib Dem's decided who the new leader was, Vince Cable
was their "stand in" leader. This man never put a foot wrong. The party
then elected Mr. Clegg! WHY???? Vince Cable is the ONLY parliamentarian who seems to NEVER open his mouth
and cause himself a problem as his thinking is so clear and logical. He was a superb deputy leader of his
party. His words have demonstrated that he has a better grasp of
international finance and affairs than any other MP. Vince Cable is the Prime
Minister this country needs but he cannot be our PM as he is not his
parties leader. CB suspects
that, everyone in the Libs knows how good Mr. Cable is but they fear he
would be an electoral liability as he seems "so Jewish". CB also
has the fear that the Libs might do a "Gordon Brown" by getting elected
then changing their leader to Vince Cable, a good thing for this
Country but the kiss of death for their party! CB can
see why many voters who have expressed their trust in Vince Cable would
distrust putting their faith and their vote behind a party who are so
blind to his obvious leadership qualities by electing another as their
2, OK, vote Conservative, David Cameron has it all,
he has the "Blair" factor! He looks good, sounds good, it all works,
EXCEPT, George Osborne! CB cannot
find the confidence to back that man. He has "bought" the business vote
with his big plans to not increase the national insurance rates! Great
idea but he says he will pay for this by cutting the £6.5 Billion
"wasteful" spending by the current Government! If that overspend is
true, why have the police not been involved? That is OUR MONEY! The
Conservatives are the OPPOSITION, why have they not questioned this
before? Remember DEEP THROAT? They said "follow the money"! If
£6.5 Billion of our money is being wasted, SOMEONE is signing the
cheque, who? Can't we get him and make HIM pay, not us? If this is
true, how can we believe the Tories will serve us any better,
considering Mr. Osborne seems to know about this financial haemhorrage?
3. Now it is time for the Government, and that means
Gordon Brown! Mr. Brown enjoyed a 10 year period as "The best
chancellor ever", whilst Tony Blair was in overall charge. Then Mr.
Brown found a way to shove Mr. Blair out of office! Yes, CB thinks
Mr. Brown is a bully! Nobody else in the Labour Party seems able to
control him so he is "GOD" (more on that Freudian slip later).
Now we have Mr. Brown assuming the job of Prime Minister! Within
a couple of days of taking "office" he was on
the Television saying "You will see this to be a different kind of
administration. We wish to hear what the man and woman in the street
has to say. We will even have forums of ORDINARY men and women from the
street so we will know what you are thinking". The use of the word
"ordinary" says it all, he has been so long in politics, he feels he is
above us all! Within 2 months of that, he had the chance of an election
to ratify his position and he refused it. The following Sunday Morning
he was asked on BBC TV by Andrew Neil, "Prime Minister, why did you
refuse the election"? The answer was "I want the time for the people of
the UK to see my vision for the future of the country". IF the UK was a
true democracy, surely his vision should have been explained on the
hustings and, if we wanted it, he would have got our vote! The truth is
he wanted to IMPOSE his vision for this country on us, and he has! Mr.
Brown now knows that we have lost a lot of faith in politics and
politicians and his answer is the "Preferred or Alternative" voting
system. This leaves us with the constituency system, as in the 2 party
system. This man is a political dinosaur. Watch him at 12.00 every
Wednesday on BBC News, Prime Ministers Questions. He is no match for
Mr. Cameron! His only reply is to rubbish the Conservatives (which
proves he sees only them as his enemy, thus underlining the 2 party
system). He is also NEVER seen to directly answer a question, which
makes a total mockery of the half hour of questions. When the financial
crisis landed, Mr. Brown claimed to be the leader of the repair, he
even did the freudian slip in Parliament when he claimed "to have saved
the world". Those who know understand it was a bit more like this
--->. The Chinese have most of the worlds money. When the financial
crisis broke it was down to the yanks. They had leant money where it
have been leant. When it started to go wrong, Lehman Brothers packaged
the crap (wrapping some good debt with lots of bad) and sold it to
banks around the world. Through greed and the need to make "profits"
for their shareholders they ate it up! Maybe thats why Lehmans were
allowed to go
bust, as payback for starting the financial crisis! The Chinese
Government INSTRUCTED America to fix it. The only fix
was to print money they hadn't got and to issue it. CB believes
that China, in order to protect it's dollar reserves guaranteed to buy
American bonds. On the strength of this, and seeing that the monetary
problem would become worldwide, America advised its nearest and dearest
to print money, possibly giving some kind of proposed help? Gordon
Brown was maybe about 10th in the list but he said (freudian slip) in
Parliament that he had "Saved The World". Now this same man is
promising "fairness in the community" as 1 of his 5 election promises.
Would you believe that a man who refuses you a vote on whether you want
him or not understands fairness? Place your vote. Be careful. CB will think
of you all as you cross the country away with your votes whilst he sips
a San Miguel. Do not get it wrong, it is not that CB does
not care, it is because he is old, has no kids, so it don't matter to
him, but he does know how much it matters to you, so THINK before you
vote!!!!!!! Could you trust a man who only sees himself in every
decision? Could you vote for a man who would sell his country just to
save his own arse? If you can't. do what CB is
doing and go on holiday! Or, maybe, a hung parliament with Cameron as
leader and Vince Cable as chancellor might just save our Island! THINK
Yes, this a
JOKE! Gordon Brown dies and goes to heaven and asks to be let in.
Gabriel says "well, you are on the list but we have a new policy here.
You do know what a policy is"? Yes comes the reply, what's this policy?
Gabriel informs Mr. Brown that he must spend 24 hours in hell, then 24
hours in heaven and then he can choose, but the choice is irrevocable.
Brown goes down. When the lift door opens he cannot believe what he
sees. The weather is beautiful, he is on a golf course, old friends
abound. Harold Wilson, wearing a cashmere suit, greets him and takes
him on the terrace where there is a barbecue. It could not be better.
After the 24 hours expire Brown goes up to see Gabriel and promptly
asks to be sent back down. Gabriel informs him if he rescinds his 24
hour inspection of heaven and chooses hell, he can never come back. Brown insists
on going straight back to hell. When the lift door opens he is
confronted by a searing hot barren landscape. He is astounded to see
Harold Wilson, wearing a threaded and shot at suit, grubbing at the
side of the road for crumbs to eat. He confronts him with "Harold,
what's going on, yesterday it was beautiful here and now look at it"?
Harold, with a wry smile says "You should know the answer to that one,
yesterday was BEFORE the election"!
Beware promises from men who have already shown us their true colours!!!!!!
OK, so now what? It has become quite apparent over
the last few days that there will be the usual bickering between the 2
main parties. Mr. Cameron seems to have lost his willingness
for reform, he too, as well as Mr. Brown wants to perpetuate the 2
party system. How do you choose? REMEMBER, the old 2 party system
applies for this election so, if we want to wrest the power from the
MP's and place it more with the people, every vote for the Lib Dems is
a vote for the people. CB is NOT a Lib Dem supporter BUT, if we leave the Lib Dems holding the balance of power, the system WILL change, as CB believes
that a coalition government between the Torys and Lib Dems will never
happen unless one of the criteria of forming a coalition is a change to
proportional representation so that every vote is a meaningful vote
from the next election after this one! That will be the first time
since Cromwell took governance from the crown and placed it in
the hands of Parliament that this country will be a true democracy.
They also have to ensure that there can never again be a Gordon Brown
(someone who takes charge of this country without a clear mandate)
unless there is a mandatory general election for THE BRITISH PEOPLE
to ratify the incoming PM's position!!!! In many ways, this could
be the most important election for the future of this country and it is
NOT all about the economy, the future system of elections is just as
important. If more voters abstain from voting than at the last
election, it SHOULD tell the MP's how little we think of them, but it
could also be a disaster in terms of our future.
