Two high fives make ten




politics is dirty and disgusting.. that's what was going through my mind when I heard that Cameron was to become the UK's new Prime Minister. Either you get old, ugly, and inefficient leaders in the UK or you get young, ugly, and inexperienced ones.. oh well..

The fact that the LibDems are now in bed with the Tory's is a scary thing. I read that many LibDem voters will scramble to vote for Labour next time, coz the voted LibDem in 2010 to avoid handing power to the Conservatives, and what did the LibDem leader do? Oh, he went to work for David Cameron who has been able to become Prime Minster.

Also what do the new guys in power do on their FIRST DAY? Oh, they announce that parliament will be fixed for 5-year terms. This has never been done before, and the Prime Minster in the UK can call a General Election anytime they see fit. Obviously this is a weak and faltering government in the making and they want maximum time to get things wrong.

Tut tut tut..

The British public have decided that no one really has their full mandate to government. The electorate rarely does that, and that's why hung parliaments are very rare in the UK. Hung as in without a majority, not with a noose! What some expected is that some kind of coalition/minority government will result and a new General Election will be needed before the 5 year period. This hasn't happened and this lame new weak government has dictated they will stay around for 5 years. I don't suppose they can just decide like that. It should go for a Commons vote and I hope the Labour dudes block this!

For those of you reading this in my archives in 2015 (if we're alive).. you'll probably agree with me that this government hasn't done much good in these last 5 years.. oh well.. nothing new!

Hello BuJ;
Good morning...
well, I disagree with you, you can’t judge him just like that; although he is the youngest prime minister since almost 200 years ago and he is inexperienced one, but if you think, what are the great consummations that experienced ones have done before!

Regardless of the experience sometimes the younger ones are much wiser and more active than the elders. Somehow you gonna find them all the same; whether they are young or old as long as those politicians just inherited the governorship due to certain plan, so his mission should be accomplishing something different I think, so let the days talk…

Btw I agree when you said politics is dirty and disgusting.

Good morning R,

i see your point and i agree with you but i'll tell u this...

Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and now David Cameron all have at least one thing in common..

that is they have been plotting for being Prime Minister for a LONG time.

for me, that doesn't qualify them for the top job.. ok they worked hard for it, but it means they are guided and not leaders.

they serve their purpose.. like a pair of tissues.. then they are thrown in the bin.. and a new tissue is needed.

Cameron more than Blair is a very calculating tough bastard!!! i would prefer a prime minister that actually cares rather than someone that wants to act as if he cares.

also British politics, especially that followed by the Conservatives (Tories) is that of rubbishing the Labour policies rather than advocating better policy. this is not very professional or ethical or a football match!

it stems because they have been in opposition for 13 years and are getting grumpy like an old man who lost his false teeth. and now they have to eat a lot of carrots!

If it was with a noose it would be "hanged".

Let give them a chance. They can't screw it up more than the last lot did. Honestly, right now the country needs a tough bastard to sort the mess out. Good luck to him!

loooooool Susan!

Indeed, they need a tough old bastard.. how can you vote in a frigging cyclist to be Prime Minister!?

Take me instead, I'm proper and more manly with a motorbike! Plus I have a proper degree not PPE!

But still, I don't have age, and neither does he.

Still ..

Something about his face is just not right.. At least Brown looked serious when he spoke.. Cameron looks like he's about to be thrown with a pie!

Greetings -
On this occasion, I must respectfully disagree. You see, I think that the pre-election rubbishing of the opposing views is more dishonest than the good honest compromise that should result from trying to solve real issues together. The similarities between what are in fact three business parties are greater than the differences.
The differences (in US more than UK it must be said) are artificially whipped up to distract folk from noticing that we're all being screwed by international usurers.

Hi Paraglider

Thanks for your comment :-)

Is it possible to please elaborate on your point a bit more?

(blame my dead brain-cells.. after all it's Thursday afternoon and I'm still at work!)

Mashkoor!

I've added a new cartoon to the post.. reload the original page to view :)

Probably only for people who follow British politics closely.

Hi again -
Politics is little more than a vaudeville show in public, thanks to the media manipulation of the processes. But in private, there is more going on than the public ever gets to see. A few of us are also discussing this here, if you have a spare moment. Your perspective would of course be most welcome.

Hi BuJ;
Exactly, they are guided and not suppose to be named leaders at all. I liked your similes when you said they are like tissues in serving the country and the carrot as well lol, sooo true. Now I got your point why you loath that guy that much, I don’t really know him but I liked the idea of having younger prime minister BUT if his personality is really like what you said, that is disaster!

Rationality.. thank you for being so kind :) I want to use a simile for one of the guys here, but fear it will be wasted on him.

Still, no country is perfect, and the UK has good things, but the current election is not one of them.

Abutt.. please, behave. By the way, I sent you a pair of used marbles today. I think they're better than the ones you currently have. Although I heard you dropped the ball :)
