The Tory conference party is going on at the moment, and some of the things coming out is unbelievable and quite shocking at the bubble some of these people live in.
First I wanted to say about the photo going round about snipers being on a roof in Manchester while an protest march going on. I personally thought this was a bit sneaky of the left, as the majority of the articles were published in a way to say these snipers were on the roof because of these protests when the more likely reason is because the Prime Minister was in Manchester.
I use to work in Windsor and every so often we would have snipers on our roof because either the Prime Minister was about or a member of the royal family.
Also when I said these people let me make it clear that I am not just talking about the Tory’s. Now I will never deny I am an odd sort of a person. I am right wing, the majority of my views are right wing, but I do have a bit of socialism shoved in there. While I will never admit this to my friends, I think the socialism bit comes from them. And I think that is good, I think your views should change as your experience life and meet people. There is never going to be a right or wrong answer to how a country is run, yes there are somethings like immigration you might hold firm views on as in whether or not to shut down our boarders or not, but in a lot of respects I think people are fluid and do hold an open mind.
I think why Corbyn is now so popular is because for the last 20-30 years the Tory party and the Labour party have not been left and right, they have been very similar, Corbyn is more socilaist and so far to the left than anyone else, do I think he is the right man for the job, maybe not, but what we have is not working.
for example this week
Lord Alan Sugar, he use to be a Labour peer made the suggestion that people are not poor or living in poverty because they have a microwave.
This reminds me of this saying going round regarding refugees who have mobile phones “Of course they have mobile phones they are fleeing a war torn country not the 18th Century”
Back in 1952, you were considered rich by having a TV, in the 1980’s certainly the 1990’s it was more the norm, so Lord Alan Sugar is being a twat, but it just goes to show the bubble they live in.
Now onto some of the great quotes coming out of the Tory conference.
Jeremy Hunt the Health Secretary have said that the tax credits will help the British people work as hard as the Chinese. This is the country which has to have nets in its factories to catch people commiting suicide. Does he not think we the poor are working as hard as they can, with zero hours contracts, having to choose between electricity or food. And with facing more cuts, its not like any other industry (apart from the education) still follows school holidays. 6 weeks in summer, 2 weeks over Easter, 2 over Christmas and two half term weeks
Theresa May insisted that foreign arrivals are putting British workers out of a job and putting down wages.
I have one thing to say to that
I could go on and on, I am leaving the whole grandparent leave for another post, just because I think that need a whole new post. Ian Duncan Smith, well less said about him the better. I am also going to leave most of David Cameron’s speech for another time as well, just purely beacsue it is so full of shit.
However I am going to take one part of David Cameron’s speech because I couldn’t believe it and I may well keep coming back to it.
He personally attacked Jeremy Corbyn
“And on the subject of protecting our country from terrorism, let me just say this:
Thousands of words have been written about the new Labour leader.
But you only really need to know one thing: he thinks the death of Osama bin Laden was a “tragedy”.
A tragedy is nearly 3,000 people murdered one morning in New York.
A tragedy is the mums and dads who never came home from work that day.
A tragedy is people jumping from the towers after the planes hit.
My friends – we cannot let that man inflict his security-threatening, terrorist-sympathising, Britain-hating ideology on the country we love.”
Wow that is impressive, Cameron has jumped right onto that band wagon What Corbyn actually said was
“The solution should ‘be law, not war’.
‘There was no attempt whatsoever that I can see to arrest him, to put him on trial, to go through that process.
‘This was an assassination attempt, and is yet another tragedy, upon a tragedy, upon a tragedy.’
:‘The World Trade Centre was a tradegy, the attack on Afghanistan was a tragedy, the war in Iraq was a tragedy. Tens of thousands of people have died. Torture has come back on to the world stage, been canonised virtually into law by Guantanamo and Bagram.”
That is what Corbyn said, this is what everyone is getting on their high horses about. Nowhere in that speech does he say the death of Bin Laden was a tradegy
And as I was researching this whole speech I came across this little gem
“British soldiers are not taught to murder unarmed people in the act of surrendering.
‘Bin Laden should be put on trial; not in Britain, but in the place where he organised the biggest and most terrible of his massacres, New York.
‘He should be put on trial, because a trial would be the profoundest and most eloquent statement of the difference between our values and his. He wanted to kill as many innocent people as he could.
‘We want justice.”
Boris Johnson 2001
Guess he should be declared as a national threat as well
Oh and to quote an ex prime minister,
Maybe you should learn from this Cameron
