So, the Tories are about to have their annual
stage managed musical farce conference, and Baroness Warsi, the co-chair has stopped just short of telling the rank and file that it’s down to them to get the vote up. She uses terms like ‘reach out’ and other politico-asinine bollocks. When I heard what she said, all I heard was her putting in the ground to work to make sure that when the Tories get the pasting of all pastings from UKIP at the Europeans (stop sniggering at the back Labourites, let’s see how much of your support melts away to the BNP shall we? And as for you Lib Dems, well, there’s no point addressing them, I don’t think there’s any left) they can lay the blame squarely at the door of the campaigners.
How could people not vote Conservative? I mean, Theresa May’s announcement is music to the ears of the membership, isn’t it?
Mrs May says today: “I see it, here in the Home Office, particularly, the sort of problems we have in being unable to deport people who perhaps are terrorist suspects. Obviously we’ve seen it with some foreign criminals who are in the UK.” The Coalition has set up a commission of human rights experts to report on the possibility of bringing in a British Bill of Rights to replace the Act by the end of next year.
Oh, Theresa, stop it. You’ll make the little office boy cry. The thing is, I’m not entirely sure this can be done, as it is derived from the European Convention of Human Rights, being a signatory of which is a condition of our membership of the EU.
Still, a British Bill of Rights. Can you imagine? That would be great.
We’ve already got one, you stupid bint. Jesus H. Christ on a little purple trike with a basket, bell, crash hat and hi-viz vest. How can you be Home Sec and not know about the 1689 Bill? We don’t need a new one. A new one is useless, mainly because successive generations have decided to completely ignore the original. Why would you pay any attention to the new one? And why do I get the feeling that a new Bill of Rights will follow the Napoleonic model? You know how it goes, in Europe, as a rule of thumb, any action is prohibited unless explicitly allowed, whereas in the UK any action is allowed unless explicitly prohibited. On the face of it a small difference, in reality a fecking enormous one. We don’t need a Bill giving us rights, they aren’t yours to give, that was established in 1215 for crying out loud.
Anyhow, I digress. There’s no chance we’ll get rid of the Human Rights Act whilst we’re still in the EU, and Cameron still maintains that we need to stay in, and because that’s what he wants, that’s what will happen. This is yet another cast iron guarantee job here, it’s a naked attempt to placate the proles before the big party, make sure they’re on their best behaviour.
Who gives a pair of dingo’s kidneys what the membership or the electorate want? They did their job, the membership elected him, the country elected him, now they should sit down, shut up and do what they are told. I’ve a feeling that if/when a debate is held on our EU membership, if it isn’t kicked into the long grass or filibustered, that there will be a whip involved. He really doesn’t want us to have a say, he’s in charge, he’s worked so hard for it. Who are we to start making demands? It’s all so unfair.
And the rank and file are supposed to sell this to the electorate? Well, good luck with that, you’d be better off trying to sell Boy George CD’s at a Klan rally.
