Consultations, intitiatives...umm anyone tell them about just doing it...
So yet more hype and spin from the heartland of politics in sunny london town.
John Reid the new home office man in charge has 'committed' and 'planned' to implement intiatives and action plans.
I found it ironic to note he used the words 'in a few years' rather than committing to any dates.
"rebalancing the criminal justice system in favour of victims and proposals to get a grip on immigration and failed asylum seekers."
Was one of my favourites, I mean how priceless can a comment be. Rebalancing a criminal justice system in favour of the victims. Even Homer Simpson would be struggling to get a 'DOH' out here due to laughing so hard. I mean what morons have we got in government. And we let them get away with it on a daily basis.
I mean come on, he's basically saying that for the past few years the criminal justice system has been in favour of the criminal. Its no wonder theres so much apathy in this country when these morons spout these sort of rhetoric continually and are completely and utterly unaccountable.
Sure they sack a few people, or rather move them around quietly, I see old Blunkett is back in some position, and Mandelson is now in the EU...how on earth do they continue to get away with it?!?
Anyway back to good old John, there is pictured above grasping the balls of the nation...hard!
"proposals to increase the minimum terms served by dangerous offenders sentenced to life, create 8,000 prison places, hive off the "unfit for purpose" Immigration and Nationality Directorate, re-introduce embarkation controls and introduce uniformed border patrols."
More genius ideas here, especially the introduction of uniformed border controls, I mean didn't we have that already? Obviously not, and they wonder why we have a god awful immigration problem.
I particularly liked this part of the piece,
"Dave Roberts, director of enforcement and removals at the Immigration and Nationality Directorate, told MPs he did not have "the faintest idea" how many illegal immigrants were in Britain."
We put these people in power, we elect them, we pay their damn wages and they come out with statements like this and what happens? Well I've so far not seen any 'Dave Roberts Quits' statements.
I used to be in sales a long time ago, I had set targets to meet, if I missed those targets 3 months in a row I was out on my ear, that was that.
These people are playing with our lives, and yet they run free over the land, starting committees and sub commitees and plans and projects that ultimately achieve nothing. Its all hot air and bollocks. This government has now served its purpose and its time to go. The worrying thing is that we'll just get the same thing just a different colour, and on it will go again.
We just need someone, anyone, to step up, grab this great country by the balls and give it a damn good shake. Don't plan and pontificate...DO! Because if we continue down this line of complete dis-engagement from the real man on the street politicians are going to find themselves relics that noone has any interest in, and eventually enough will be enough and there will be riots/civil unrest, and not before time either in my opinion.
Time to stop the rot.
