Do as I say, not as I do

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year and I've changed my opinions on many things over the years. Deleting things I wrote years ago would be like ripping pages out of a diary so I'm not going to do it despite the fact that some stuff I've written in the past will probably be used against me during elections by UKIP hating fascists. You should read this bearing in mind that what I thought in the past might not be what I think now.

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.
