Huff and Puff

“ I’ll huff and I’ll puff till I blow your house down”

David Cameron, Osborne and their CONsevative troops have huffed and puffed through the Budget and their spring conference but have offered little or no policies, except to expand the ‘Tony Blair’ government policy of school academy to primary schools.

Despite the cynical remarks by Paxman, Neil , other commentators and ‘experts’ with their own agendas to push, and the same old reviewers of the daily papers at home, Gordon Brown continues to grow in stature Internationally as a leader, as his recent visits to Iraq, Afghanistan and the world conferences show.

As a ‘news junkie’ following most of the speeches in full live on 24 hour news there is a big difference listening to the whole speech rather than the ‘News Bites’ picked out by editors.

I remain a fully committed socialist as when joining Labour in 1952 but would sooner have Gordon Brown, or the Blair reforming government., than the CONservatives lead by anybody.

Damian McWho ? Nobody heard of him ‘til he had done what most of us have - written a humorous, unsolicited and maybe rude email to a friend or colleague.

The trouble is David Cameron’s CONservatives have no alternative polices to the ones the Government is pursuing today, so they spend their time ‘nit’ picking over words.

It concerns them more who watches what DVDs, minor spending on what, instead of getting down with other leaders to sort out a better system of MP’s expenses. They have nothing more to say other than keep calling for a ‘Public Enquiry’ into every thing. And calling for sackings with personal attacks.

The reasons being, NewLabour have spent their time in office trying to make the capitalist system work fairer and with a softer edge to benefit us all, so Cameron is really in a cleft stick situation unable to attack politically.

What is needed is a radical change in Political direction at Westminster and the World.
