All animals are equal … but some animals are more equal than others

! 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.

In a civillised democracy a member of an opposition political party would be commended for making public some embarrassing piece of information about the serving government.  Information relating to the employment of an illegal immigrant at the Home Office, the Security Industry Authority giving licences to illegal immigrants or a letter from the Home Secretary to the Prime Minister saying that recession might lead to an increase in crime (claims that it may have mentioned that bears shit in the woods have yet to be confirmed).

But, of course, this isn’t a civillised democracy any more.  Far from it: this is the Brownian People’s Republic of New Britain – an embryonic soviet-style police state in which the police and security services are an instrument of the ruling party and a grinning, jowly hypocrite tells us all what to do while he does the complete opposite.

The Tory MP and Immigration Spokesman, Damian Green, was arrested on Thursday night for just that though.  Civil Service bosses called in the police to investigate the source of a leak in their department, Green was fingered and anti-terrorism officers swooped.  His homes in Kent and London were searched and his office in Westminster was searched with the permission of Liebour MP and El Gordo’s sockpuppet, Speaker Micheal Martin.

It is the latter that has caused most concern because, unless there is an accusation of a criminal offence, Westminster is effectively off-limits to the police.  MPs have parliamentary privilege which gives MPs immunity from civil offences committed inside the Palace of Westminster.  The concept of parliamentary privilege is important because MPs need to be able to speak or act freely in parliament without having to worry about being sued as a result.  There is also the question of privacy – the police removed files and papers from his office in parliament which may contain confidential or sensitive correspondence from his constituents.

Of course, El Gordo says that he didn’t know anything about this in advance and nor did any of his ministers.  David Cameron did and so did Boris Johnson but the Prime Minister says he didn’t and the Home Secretary – the minister in charge of the police – says that she didn’t.  Didn’t know, my arse.  This was a parting shot from Ian Blair on his last day as head of the Met against the party he blames for his demise.  Of course the Goblin King and the facist bitch, Jacqui Smith, knew about it.
The idea that an opposition MP can be arrested by anti-terrorist police, have his home and parliamentary office searched and confidential papers taken away for examination for doing his job is truly shocking and there have been the inevitable and justified drawing of parallels with George Orwell’s 1984.  But it goes deeper than 1984, it’s just a small part of the whole rotten revolution.  Gordo and his champagne socialist co-conspirators are creating their very own animal farm with the One Eyed Wonder of Wankistan as Napolean and Alistair Darling as his Squealer.

George Orwell was a visionary and the most ironic thing is that Orwell was a Labour Party supporter for most of his life.

    Of course, Ian Blair……

    That expalins it.

    I do sincerely hope that they are lying, because if they are not and they really didn’t know, it means that the forces of the State are no longer controlled by the elected representatives of the people, and determine for themselves whether to intimidate MP’s doing their job, to invade parliament, and to loot and confiscate anything that takes their fancy. In that case we have already crossed the barrier from being a democratic society well into a grey area on the way to becoming a fully fledged police state.
    However I do believe they are lying; firstly, it’s inconceivable that Smith didn’t know, considering who else did; secondly, if she sneezes she won’t blow her nose until she’s asked Gordo which handkerchief to use; thirdly, the whole operation and deployment of the Goon Squad has the Goblin King’s great clunking fist written all over it.
    Sir Ian Blair? Don’t make me laugh. Nobody thought it worth bothering to tell him that the Goon Squad had killed an innocent man on his patch until the day after the event; the whole command and control function for which he was responsible was a complete fucking shambles on the day, but he never went near the place.

    You will note too that the raid took place when they knew the focus of the press and broadcast media would be on the terrorist attacks in India.

    Burying bad news, management of the media – it’s all there in Orwell’s books. People think that comparing current events to Animal Farm or 1984 are an exaggeration but it’s really not!

    Personally I think it’s good to see that MP’s are able to witness first hand how anti-terror legislation can be twisted and used against people.

    Good point Stan. A lot of them probably thought they were above being subjected to heavy-handed policing.

    Recall how the corruption probe into “cash for honours” was conducted.

    This is a bit out of context but I hope you’ll still laugh about it:

    The Heaviest Element known to Science.

    Lawrence Livermore Laboratories has discovered the heaviest element yet
    known to science.

    The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant
    neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an
    atomic mass of 312.

    These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are
    surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

    Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be
    detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A
    tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less
    than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete.

    Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2- 6 years. It does not decay,
    but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant
    neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.

    In fact, Governmentium’s mass will actually increase over time, since
    each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.

    This characteristic of morons promotion leads some scientists to believe
    that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration.
    This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

    When catalysed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an
    element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as
    many peons but twice as many morons.

    Jerry, very good :))

    Everyone else, I was not dead, in jail or sectioned, I was in Germany, munich to be precise.

    It was very strange, nearly everything worked and if it was not working, it was being fixed, hooray.

    Oki, not so different from here, I guess, a lot of things do work and when they do break, they sometimes get fixed too!
