What a Week!
On Tuesday afternoon I set off for London with a colleague for a 3 day training course. I took my new laptop in the hope that I would be able to pick up a wireless connection from the hotel and get some browsing done but it wasn't to be.
So, I spent the best part of the week with no internet connection and what a week it's turned out to be!
Firstly, Patricia Hewitt addressing the Royal College of Nursing and getting applause from a single person in the audience and then getting heckled.
Then the news emerges that almost a thousand prisoners that should have been deported were accidently released instead. The Sweaty Baboon took full responsibility, offered his resignation and Traitor Blair refused to accept it.
Next, John Prescott changes from Two Jags to Two Shags and we find out that he had an affair with his secretary. One newspaper I saw had the headline "Prescott Affair in Pictures!". I couldn't figure out if this was intended to sell papers or put people off.
Postal Voting was the next thing in the news - 7 London boroughs are being investiagted for electoral fraud involving postal voting ahead of the upcoming local elections in London. In one tower block in Tower Hamlets, over 50% of the residents have received postal votes that they hadn't asked for. The polling station is literally next door to the tower block.
Finally, 5 of the prisoners that were released by mistake have already reoffended. Charles Clarke says sorry and the Tories call for his resignation again.
What does this tell you about the Labour Party? They are devoid of morals and utterly incompetent. They couldn't organise a piss-up in a brewery, let alone run the country. Just what does a minister have to do to get the sack nowadays?
If anyone is interested, the course was a complete shambles from start to finish. Ultimately worthwhile attending but a complete shambles nonetheless.
