Alright Jack Straw

24 Feb

So it’s goodbye to Rifkind the walking cess pit who was as of yesterday going to fight fight fight these scurrilious allegations that hit the headlines with the most scurrilous being the comment about his self employed status. What an elephant size arse he is! Actually he’s an insipid little man.

No movement from Jack Straw as yet but as his nickname some years back was Jack Boots Straw, as atonement I reckon he should stand up straight while everyone who has suffered through the bedroom tax gives him a swifty to his bollocks. He’s allowed a few minutes breather between every 20 kicks to his testicular nether region. He deserves it! Let’s look at some sums. His additional income up to now is circa £115,373.00 (two amounts are predictive rather than actual) plus his salary of £64,000 and then all his other allowances to keep his ship afloat tots up to £163,000 for the last full year so you get £342,648.00.

Back in 1998 agit-prop comedian Mark Thomas took a number of disabled people with severe conditions like MS and Crohns to Straw’s MPs surgery to argue the case for more research into the use of cannabis for pain relief and other bona fide medical purposes. Straw acted like a total arse. When one of the visitors took a tin of roll ups out Straw walked out and the next thing the police turned up en masse as if responding to a terrorist alert….but you can’t arrest someone using crutches for having a tin of tobacco. Mark Thomas made the point that there’s an issue that needs debating here. At the time the key person in the UK who could have initiated this debate was the Home Secretary…Jack Straw. And at the time he’d just made an arse of himself on TV by jumping to conclusions and wasting police time. The clip is actually very funny! I have no problems whatsoever with for example someone with Parkinson’s using plant extract to diminish extreme distress and discomfort but I do have a problem with political fu*kwits!

Straw meets the public!

Let Skirmish Commence: Dorries and Burt Challengers Announced!

3 Aug

First weekend of August…and soon the first hints of autumn. The Labour Party across Bedfordshire have selected their two candidates to contest the Bedfordshire North East seat where Saqhib Ali takes on Alistair Burt and Mid Bedfordshire where Charlynne Pullen goes head to head with telly D lister cash queen working class spawned ex nurse Nadine Dorries. Both seats are rock solid Tory. A blue rosette in a pile of horse shit would get elected so I can only assume Saqhib Ali and Charlynne Pullen are either very hopeful or using this as a trial run before they start going for nominations in winnable seats. Dorries has said as much in a barbed comment about her adversary! I’ve always mistrusted people who sell their “working class” origins whilst quite clearly having sold out to mix with their betters

About twelve reasons why Alistair Burt need have no concerns!

About twelve reasons why Alistair Burt need have no concerns!

 

What I can be certain of is that this time next year it won’t really matter which party is in power, certainly not in Mid and North East Bedfordshire and the only real way I will know is from the direction of the headlines in the media. In practice it will be either a left wing or right wing branch of the same political thought process albeit with enough difference to distinguish one from the other. In general the majority of voters are surplus to requirements as the vast majority of seats remain unchanged and our only use is to pay as much tax as can be squeezed out of us without breaking us. What it doesn’t want is me, you or anyone else for that matter running round the streets getting uppity.

To keep me quiet I can watch telly on well over seventy channels showing much the same thing. I can vote for dancing goons, boy bands, farting dogs each weekend and maybe win a holiday for my efforts and my premium rate phone call or text but when assisted dying comes up I’m excluded. Others have the “right” to decide on my behalf. If I die through excruciatingly painful bowel cancer I don’t get a say in how I end my days. Alistair Burt does.  We the governed passed our right to have a say about our future when we voted it away  back in 2010.  If I want my say on the situation in Palestine I’m restricted to the letters page in the free papers or this blog. Much better to have a few beers and watch telly, shout at the news, Paxman or Evan, maybe I can spend my days dreaming of a conservatory!

Novelty value Dorries! The new breed of Tory?

Novelty value Dorries! The new breed of Tory?

Did you dream when you were a kid? MAybe you still dream of some preferable. It’s this belief in Oz, Over the Rainbow, cupboards to Narnia, Island of Lost Boys, flying with Peter and Wendy join Alice, Alan and Melinda in the adventure of The Lost Girls. Our middle earth utopia that can be achieved simply by accepting or believing in our democracy and that by playing our part in the five year vote we can collectively exert force over our direction. I can’t get my head how people can remain “Labour Stalwarts” after repeatedly being sold out almost from the time when Labour came into being and I now see it as a sort of an acceptable breathing spot for the Tories while they regroup and wash their hands!

Or have I long accepted that we’ve fallen for the glued down penny or the pea under the cup trick on Westminster Bridge before the old bill comes along!  Providing we keep believing that our vote counts for something and will lead to effective change or that our quid on the cup with a pea might land us a pay out they are safe!

Goodnight children…everywhere!

It’s What You Know AND Who You Know! My MPs second job!

22 Jul

Bedford Bypass recently advised the world or at least those that chanced upon the blog about Alistair Burt MP for Bedfordshire North East and how he’d obtained a lucrative consultancy paying circa £833 an hour for his services (£6666.64 for eight hours). Since then we presume through embarrassment maybe he’s dropped his rates and done another ten hours for paymasters PLLG Investors Advisors of Leeds for the paltry sum of £1,666.66 which we work out brings his hourly rate down to a mere £462 per hour although all the payments are £1666.66 or multiples thereof!

Worth every penny! I really hope he gets elected next year!

Worth every penny! I really hope he gets elected next year!

He’s done very well and achieved the same status as local MPs Richard Fuller and that totally awful Nadine Dorries in putting their fingers up to all of their constituents who count the days to payday in order to balance the books! I asked Mr Burt how his fortunes allowed him to nab this nice side-line and it seems the following applies!

Alistair by his own admission uses his knowledge and relevant experience of international politics and economics gained over many years (whilst being paid as an MP). Unfortunately whilst Mr Burt was a Government Minister and officially visiting numerous oil producing companies he wasn’t allowed to have outside interests, he could only harvest the knowledge and now that he’s been cast aside he’s free to trade himself on the open market like any other MP and has been snapped up by PLLG of Leeds. I asked how this offer came about…

The Chairman of PLLG is one Peter Levine and luckily for Mr Burt he’s known him since University with both qualifying as Solicitors from Oxford. Levine is the sole owner of PLLG Investments Ltd which is his family investment fund and PLLG is stated on the President Energy website as owning 25.6% shares in this South American Oil and Gas company. PLLG are based in Leeds, using the postcode LS15 8ZA and share this bit of land with 77 other companies. I must visit this hub of productivity when I’m next up there. I’m a bit thick when it comes to this sort of thing but after looking into PLLG’s financial statements they only appear to have £736 in the bank and net assets of £117,000 so for the life of me I can’t work out what they do although Mr Levine did do a marvellous introduction to the book “Doing Business with Kazakhstan”, he’s honorary British Consul to the Republic of Kazakhstan in England (!) and he’s chuffed with something called the British Kazakh Society who list Prince Andrew Duke of York as honorary patron. That’s the same Prince Andrew who made such an embarrassing total baboon shaped red dangly arse of himself as a trade envoy!

A valuable commodity

Back to Burt I asked him about his paid for jaunts to various parts of the Middle East and I am enlightened to know that these paid for trips ensure stronger relationships and better understanding between respective politicians. I am also advised in Burt’s reply that he has a good track record of raising human rights [issues] in the less tolerant countries however despite several days worth of work on this blog while there’s no end of peripheral stuff about PLLG I can’t for the life of me find out exactly what they do, nor can I find out exactly what Alistair Burt does for them, nor can I find out any evidence to support his assertion that he has a good track record for raising human rights but like I said earlier when it comes to complicated stuff like this, well I’m a bit thick and much prefer watching the telly! In fact I only write stuff like this coz I get paid £800 an hour, £400 if I’m feeling flushed!

The information in your head is priceless. I don’t think you realise what valuable property you have become. A man like you is in great demand on the open market. (Number 2 speaking to Number 6, Arrival the opening episode of The Prisoner).
