I am not a political animal, politics and politicians, especially politicians, leave me wishing we had the right to bear arms. Which is probably why we don't have it. I don't vote as I have no intention of legitimising any government, whatever the hue. And no, people did not die in two world wars so those that came after could put an X on a piece of paper and thereby give control to a bunch of treasonous, murderous sociopaths.
The UK but primarily the English have been sold down the river by Parliament since the traitor Heath's time and nothing is likely to change that, certainly voting won't change it.
It is however nice to see at least one politician having the gumption to state some quite plain facts. When pressed by a Times hack as to the purported shortfall in revenue claimed by other political pygmies, UKIP's Godfrey Bloom replied thus;
"The Times made no serious attempt to understand the spending cuts which UKIP would make. £15 billion per annum on EU membership, £12 billion on fake charity subscriptions, £14 billion on overseas ‘aid’ [and] £60 billion on Quangoes, if you allow £10 billion of Quangoes to remain. That gives us a saving of £91 billion to open the batting."
I don't know why £10 billion of Quangoes have to remain, I'd cut the lot off at the fucking knees thereby saving £101 billion in total but I love the rest of the intended recipients. I'd go further though and confiscate all the wealth of those individuals who have grown fat on the taxpayers coin and put them to work in their respective communities on minimum wage. To encourage les autres, you understand. Actually I'd go even further and hang the bastards that have been given the CP funded 'leading beyond authority' remit.
If UKIP really were going to do what Godfrey Bloom states then I'd be tempted to put my cross on the ballot paper but unfortunately they are just another facet of the political zirconium and if ever elected, would ultimately fail to do what is best for the long suffering people of this once great nation.
Still, it's heart warming to see at least one politician who recognises where the savings can be made.
