Do as I say, not as I do

! 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.

David Blunkett says that everyone between the age of 16 and 25 should do at least 6 months of intensive voluntary work.

An interesting proposition but not something I can see many 16 to 25 year olds going for it.  How about our MPs set an example by doing intensive volunteer work during the 6 months a year that they don’t do anything to earn their very generous salaries?  Blunkett claimed over £143k in allowances last year on top of his MPs salary of just over £63k.

    I heard in advance that his speech was to be on the corporate domination of politics.

    Looks like he chickened out and went for the kids.

    They aren’t gonna give him a cushy non-job are they?

    I think that is a great idea, i love working and 6 months of stress free work, seeing the shit that will happen to you if you dont bother to study, et cetera would be great.

    Hard work is much maligned and it woukld get a whole pile of useful things done, that the fucking council are too much a bunch of cunts to do.

    I would give, John Gumley or McAlpine or Bovis a couple of million and say…..

    No, i would just take out the counciollors and re-educate them on the converted hockey pitches.
