Fair dealing?

Labour's policies make no sense when approached from the point of view of reason, fairness and justice. That is because they were not conceived from that point of view. The logic behind Labour's policies is simple and corrupt. Their objective is to steal public funds and use them to bribe Labour's supporters.

That is why Labour-donating Northern Rock, with its legions of Geordie depositors was saved from its idiocies. That is what all those non-jobs advertised in the Guardian are about. That is what selectively closing hospitals in Conservative constituencies is about. That is what cash for consultations is about. That is what devolution is about. Scotland and Wales are voter farms, with Socialists hand-reared at the flowing teat of Mother State.

Once you understand that, your sense of puzzlement at Labour's poll lead will evaporate and be replaced with a desire to find another homeland. It was a Scot, Alexander Tytler, who perceived that

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until a majority of voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse out of the public treasury."

But in siding with the visceral hatred of the Celtic fringe for the Saes or Sassenachs (don't deny it boyos, I grew up among you) Labour has gone a step too far. The English are famously tolerant and forbearing. They take pride in it. But Margaret Thatcher put her finger on the matter when she quoted Rudyard Kipling's "Norman and Saxon" to Francois Mitterand;

“The Saxon is not like us Normans, His manners are not so polite.
But he never means anything serious till he talks about justice and right.
When he stands like an ox in the furrow with his sullen set eyes on your own,
And grumbles, ‘This isn’t fair dealings,’ my son, leave the Saxon alone"

The Barnett Formula is very far from fair dealing. it is theft, pure and simple. It is the theft of the English taxpayers' life work to bribe the legions of Labour-voting Celts. It is corruption, nothing more.

It is so difficult when the nice Indian born British-educated person you work with tells you they are head-hunted because they are of an ethnic minority, or a Jamaican Social Worker tells you the whites were collonialists and so why can't Jamaicans outstay their visa. There is no irony in their stance. Meritocracy eludes them. To think if this were on the opposite foot in their countries. Never happen, unless the English succumb to the communist-feminisation of the species "is it cos Iz White?" and take this tokenism and inherent mediocrity as their salvation.

One way I've seen to make the English jobless is to specify having a fluent second language is an advantage on the application form. No English local government workers then.


As usual, you've hit the nail on the head. I fear though that the situation for the English is going to get much more difficult. It's quite clear that the State is filling administrative positions in England with people who have no historical, cultural or emotional attachment to our country. Soon any possibility of promotion within the new governing class will be predicated upon how not English you are.
