Like being savaged by a gerbil

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Hazel Blears has attacked political bloggers for “fuel[ing] a culture of cynicism and pessimism” about politics.

Hazel love, you’re a fucking fruit loop.  It’s people like you, dear, that fuel a culture of cynicism and pessimism about politics.  People like you who not only ignore the people who elected you but actively work against their wishes and act all surprised when they don’t think you’re doing them a favour.  People like you who consistently and unswervingly vote with your party on every issue, regardless of what their constituents want.  People like you who have consistently voted against every proposal to make parliament transparent and in favour of every bill that curtails human rights and civil liberties.

Ms Blears, the wealthy middle class solicitor and MP on a ministers salary of nearly £139k, says that we need more working class MPs.  She said that we need more MPs earning almost £62k a year plus expenses that “know what it is to worry about the rent collector’s knock, or the fear of lay-off”.

She did betray the real reason for her attack on political bloggers though.

The most popular blogs are right-wing

Yes Hazel, they are.  It’s also because left wing politics is so incredibly dull and predictable.  Corruption, sleaze, spin, class jealousy and never-ending destructive “reform”.

Do us a favour Hazel, go and get your hair done or something and leave the savaging to people who know how to do it properly.

    I think Blears raises a number of points, the broad thrust of which I agree with. The trouble is that it can be hard to even be selected as a candidate for public office if you haven’t travelled the “transmission belt” as Blears describes it.

    It would be of benefit to us all if politicians had experienced the rent-mans knock or indeed the call of the baliff – I have had to contend with both on occasions in the past and I am not afraid to admit it.

    Personal difficulties such as illness and unemployment can affect anyone. My own politics has been forged from the hard and often harsh realities of life. My friends, in both main political parties, know this and respect me the more because of it.

    On the question of political blogs, certainly a great deal of it is trash and the stuff of the conspiracy theory. Some of the bloggers hype up the negative as a means of distinguishing themselves.

    I hope that you will agree that my own blog does not sit amongst any of the aforementioned categories. Yes, it is a little bit right-wing, I suspect that Blears herself would hate it. But it does not deal in mere tittle-tattle and gossip, but in the battle of ideas. A battle that is often necessary for the maintanance of a free and democratic society. It is a struggle that has to be won and re-won with every passing generation.

    Why would that be of benefit to someone who isn’t poor? Rich people need relevant representation as much as poor people.
