Asset Stripping England
On the 30th March 2012, George Galloway was elected as MP for Bradford North. “Gorgeous George” claimed that people have become disenchanted from Westminster and that is certainly correct. In this country we have three big political parties all very very similar. No matter the subject; they now seem to be as one!
In 1997 a New Labour Government was elected in the United Kingdom, they promised much, and they delivered much, sadly much of it very damaging to England and under the constant mantra of “reform”.
We now know that despite the election result of 2010 where the Liberal Democrats could have decided if the country had a New Labour coalition or a Conservative coalition it really would not have mattered that much, the Tories (and Liberal Democrats) have continued on with ignoring election pledges, while bleating the word “reform” as a catch all for imposing financial cuts that will bring the country to its knees.
The Tory led British Government is totally out of its depth and comfort zone in trying to deal with the legacy of financial mess created by New Labour. Curiously however they seem totally comfortable (and snuggly) within their comfort zone in asset stripping English national institutions and have no compunction in forcing their will using a Parliamentary rule for budgets to trample over the will of the Lords, this is after ignoring any groups “consulted” about various “reforms”.
The British Government have no mandate for selling English public roads or English forests, no mandate for asset stripping the English NHS, and no mandate for imposing (forcing through the upper house) the welfare reform bill. (It is even being suggested that elements of the welfare reform bill may be illegal under the UN charter concerning forced labour, and human rights legislation concerning treatment of people in a humane manner!)
The (English) NHS bill (also forced through the Lords) is another disaster waiting to happen, but why? Why is a Tory led Government happy to impose New Labour policies into a country that had the toughest welfare tests on the planet in 2003? You might ask why they are increasing New Labour’s snooping on the individual as well?
The reality of today’s political situation is clear, no matter who in the “Big Three” parties has “power” all of them are so out of touch they might as well be on Mars. We have just witnessed a Government inspired panic buying of fuel, followed up by a disproportionate use of Westminster time on the subject of Cornish pasties!
While some people have commented that these people are not fit for office, yet when you look closer at what this regime have imposed and intend to impose, you will see that it affects only people in England, the selling off of English public roads, English forests, English prescription charges rates, the English NHS, and yes the (English) welfare reform bill. The Scottish Government along with Scottish GP’s have openly said they will not impose this mess upon the people of Scotland come independence.
The Scots have something we do not, they have a choice. They have the Scottish National Party protecting Scottish interests. England has no one in power willing to acknowledge that England needs protection, fairness and parity as well or even that England exists. You can change that! You can support and vote English Democrats!
