Apparently, there is a leadership contest going on in the Labour Party.

Does anyone care?

Does anyone care? Not really.
But intelligent opposition would have a field-day with the coa-bodge of a government we have now, and would shine all the more from the paucity of opposition we've grown used to.
Some time soon the Unions will realize the EU is not their friend and this under-reported inflation will set the sort of strike to catch up that we saw in the 70s.
This will show the Unions that there is no power in Westminster to negotiate with, and Brussels don't care.
Intelligent opposition.....
Hmmm

OT

This is just ridiculous.

Quote:
A trainee accountant who posted a message on Twitter threatening to blow an airport "sky high" began an appeal against his conviction and sentence yesterday, arguing that nobody would ever have taken his message seriously.

Paul Chambers, 26, was found guilty of sending a menacing electronic communication in May and was ordered to pay a £385 fine, a £15 victim surcharge and £600 costs. He later lost his job.

Chambers, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, claimed he sent the tweet to his 600 "followers" in a moment of frustration after nearby Robin Hood Airport was closed by snow in January. The message read: "Crap! Robin Hood Airport is closed. You've got a week and a bit to get your shit together, otherwise I'm blowing the airport sky high!"

The 'Thought Police' in action. Had Betjeman been alive he would be serving sentence, just as mild mannered ex-maths teacher Fred Hill http://wadmag.mag-uk.org/fred_hill.htm served several sentences for refusing to wear a crash hat whilst on his motorcycle. At 74yrs of age, he died whilst part way through a two month sentence in Pentonville. He had harmed no-one, and by simply continuing to wear his WWII beret, could harm no-one - but the state made him pay. His ultimate crime was 'contempt of court' for refusing to pay their fines.

And such is the state we are in having been 'led' by the likes of all those Labour/Conservative/Mish-mash leaders who are all peas from the same pod, all grown in the same greenhouse, and 'watered' by the same hands. At what point does the number of the electorate who actually turn out to vote, make an election null and void - 100, 50, 1, or none? For if no-one voted, would they self elect, or simply adopt EU commission practice and to hell with any election. (Not that we aren't there already).

Does anyone care? The bbc care. And they've rammed their caring down the listeners and viewers throats ever since the campaign began. And today they are adjusting the times of normal programmes just so we can benefit from having the results as they happen. Thanks bbc for being so caring.

Yet six Algerian street cleaners are released without charge after being overheard joking about assassinating the Pope...

Here's more donkey's knob justice. Neil Weiner from Swanlea in London, gets twelve years for trying to frame his boss for possessing kiddie porn in order to get promotion. Weiner wasn't convicted of paedophilia, but for being a lowlife bastard. On the other hand, paedo postie Michael Williams gets a mere eight and a half years for grooming/abusing hundreds of kids via social networking sites. According to British justice, fitting up your boss as a paedophile is clearly more heinous than being the most prolific paedophile ever caught.

What I don't get is, if they actually don't have a sense of humour and thought Paul Chambers was going to blow up Robin Hood airport because it had been snowing, surely the logical response would have been to call in the men in white coats? Who made the decision to take what he said literally? That was the crime, criminal lack of a sense of humour. That individual shouldn't keep his job.

Being set up can happen to anyone. The victim could be important, in fact most likely would be. The crime of framing someone for something they didn't do damages the system. Sadly, abusing children doesn't. That's a personal choice and it will usually only happen to kids of irresponsible parents anyway, so it's less urgent to lock those people away. Child abusers are often important, respected people who use their status to get close to children.

Donkeys led by donkeys. To be honest (a new concept in politics) without the different coloured rosettes and logos I would be hard pressed to distinguish the parties and the empties/MPs. I've started reading Francis Beckett's biog of Clement Attlee - a great man in retrospect (mainly for getting out of India) but wouldn't be noticed in today's idiocracy. Mind you, he only became Labour leader in 1935 because nobody else was available.

I'm very much having to rethink my old ideas and prejudices ... I am now way out of my comfort zone.
