Monty Python: Conservatives vs Leftards

Many leading Conservatives when they’re in top form seem to have a knack for sneaking Monty Python quotes into their speeches. Leftards on the other hand seem to be intent on making the people of the world feel as though they’re living in a Monty Python sketch, no matter what sort of form they’re on………. (OK, maybe things ain’t quite this bad yet, but give it time…)

What became of Gordon Brown’s infamous Stealth Taxes?

This is the random question that just popped into my head a few minutes ago. I’ve seen plenty of mention of them in the past, such as at this link I like to keep handy: http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/garbagegate/item2/stealth.htm I suppose I’d be right in guessing that unlike Gordon Brown, a large chunk of them haven’t disappeared yet and are still sneaking extra money out of our pockets into the government piggy bank, in addition to the “super star” taxes that get all the main attention, e.g. Income Tax, National Insurance, Fuel Tax, Road Tax, etc. Am I right?

Told you so: When discussing replacing the Human Rights Act with Sanity, be careful how you phrase it

I seem to remember in the not too distant past mentioning below an article on ConservativeHome or somewhere that we needed to be careful how we phrase it when discussing replacing the Human Rights act with something that has a bit more sanity to it (though I can’t currently find it). I knew this because I’d previously seen on Yahoo Answers (part of Yahoo, the 4th most popular website in the world) leftie idiots asking why UKIP want to revoke Human rights, after they’d had pretty much the same idea, which I got the best answer for correcting them with: They don’t want to revoke human rights……… they just want

Jeremy Hunt’s doing a better job than Andrew Lansley

Hands up who else thinks that Jeremy Hunt is doing a better job than Andrew Lansley as Secretary of State for Health? When Lansley was in the job you could hardly tell if he was doing anything, and the only time you knew he was there was when his name popped-up in the ConservativeHome monthly satisfaction survey. In contrast Jeremy Hunt has made headlines for doing undercover shifts in NHS Hospitals, and telling the NHS they must treat patients as people + bringing back the Family Doctor.

Will lefties try to ban the dictionary next?

On Twitter earlier, and on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show as I type this, I heard some daft MSNBC news host describe the term “Obamacare” as “racist”… didn’t Obama himself call it this before it started looking like the idea was (as predicted by many) going completely to ****? Even other notorious lefties said it was nuts. Got me thinking: Will leftards try to ban the dictionary next for being “racist filth” for having too many N-Words in it? There’s tonnes of them in the dictionary app on my iPhone, such as: Naive Numpty Nacho Nag Nail-Head Namby-Pamby Nannyish Nanny State Napoleon Narrow-minded National Debt + so many others I

What do the left have against electricty?

Does anyone else get the feeling that Lefties have something against electricity? First they used to see to it that it would go off at random due to their little union friends going on strike (until Mrs Thatcher came to power and gave them all a good handbagging)……….. now it seems they’re at it again with their insistance on using “renewable” energy sources that are about effective as a dynamo powered by a Hamster on a wheel + “smart meters” that turn off your fridge at random (don’t sound too smart to me).

Does Cameron & Co WANT to lose the next GE?

So gives the impression of a headline I saw at the Daily Mail earlier….. ———————————————————- David Cameron has abandoned a pledge to deport thousands of foreign criminals, including burglars, violent thugs and thieves. The Tory leader had promised in Opposition to change immigration rules so prisoners from outside the EU were automatically sent home – even those serving short jail terms. —————————- It sure as hell wasn’t going down too good with the commenters at the bottom of the page. I found James Delingpole’s Dog Shit Yoghurt theory *blog postings amusing, and as usual appear to be right…….. this latest headline makes it look like the Coalition is currently running

Just a thought…….

Came up with this while eating dinner, thought I’d whack it up here to get a bit more on the blog + in case it proves useful to anyone passing by: “Conservative governments tend to look [at problems] before leaping [for the chequebook]. Labour / Socialist governments (as most people have hopefully noticed with the most recent one in the UK), throw lots of other people’s money at problems hoping they go away, and then only look into solving it properly when the problem has become so bad it’s gonna take the biggest miracle since the birth of Christ to put things right”.
