watching the documentary on bbc2 right now. arrghh i hate them. always been selfish cunts, always will be selfish cunts.
cuntish selfs, eh?
thatcherism on bbc2 . she was a CUNT of astronomical proportions
I used to like you.
I doubt it...
annoyed that they're blats going to win the next election. Cameron is a twat, just a massive massive twat.
i don't like the fact that i'm going to have to vote for labour (stupid first-past-the-post) but it's better than the alternative.
i don't think people should back cameron until he comes up with actual policies, rather than "let's send more people to jail" and "i cycle to work which is good for the environment, that means it is ok to have a car follow with all my papers in it"
by "the alternative" i meant cameron getting in.
although i'm not sure a PR system is the best idea either.
it's a hell of a lot better than fptp, I think. Hell, Finland had a government consisting of FIVE parties once, and despite speedmetal, they've done alright.
but the problem here is that there's this tradition of opposition for the sake of opposition, and i think it would lead to some terrible deadlocks.
of course, that wouldn't as such be a bad thing as it would stop governments forcing through legislation without proper scrutiny and debate. but on the other hand it might make it difficult to get anything done, and there are plenty of examples of that happening..
Proportional Representation would be a fucking disaster. It would be centre-right economic Thatcherism-lite for evermore. :-/
i reckon the left wing elements in Labour would be able to stage a massive resurgence if there was a PR system.
i think you know that guntrip meant labour v conservatives rather than PR v FPTP
if we have a parliament with no overall control at the next election it will be the best thing ever. assuming the lib dems are brave enough to ask for electoral reform from a potential coalition partner. it would change british politics permanently.
MY GOD THE TOYS ARE BASTARDS

'not recognise the UK government as having any sovereignty over me'
I will not enter into the charade perpetrated as it is, it must improve before I give it my authorization.
