Blunkett Out

I have to say, I'm sorry that Blunkett has been forced to resign over such trivial matters. His relationship with that vindictive witch Quinn was a purely personal mistake. (I must say, she sounds like a particularly evil psycho bitch from hell - and trust me, I know what I'm talking about here.)

The accelerated visa? Naughty, naughty. But not really that serious in the greater scheme of things. I mean, who doesn't make use of the people and facilities at work from time to time? Only this week, for instance, I used my company's bandwidth to download a ridiculously large device driver from HP, and used an office CD burner to burn it onto (my own) CD. Should I resign?

After all, it's not like he started a war on false pretences or anything, is it?

No, I wanted to see Blunkett resign over the introduction of imprisonment without trial, the end of the right to trial by jury, the introduction of ID cards, and generally being a fascist the most authoritarian home secretary we've seen in half a century.

Very rarley does one wake up feeling the world is a better place. Today I did. I am, like may labour back-benchers according to the press, very releived to see a rampant facist (He was on good relatiosn with The Sun and Daily Mail for christ's sake) out of office.
I agree completly - he should have been thrown out the country as a major threat to Democracy, of which he knew nothing in my opinion.
At least he's gone now.
If only we could oust Bush too...

Two points:

1- Should you resign.... why not, I can have a Christmas present early

2- When you have been unable to travel for around 3 of the last 5 years because of home office incompetence and inefficiencies, then the accelerated visa really fecking grates and yes travelling abroad does matter when part of your family lives there.

I'm sure Blunkett will be ok, with the BNP leader being locked up maybe there's a job for him there.

El P,
1 - What a morale booster you are, This morning, when you shouted out "Tosser" across the room to Bart, I assumed that you were trying to get *my* attention.

2 - I agree that it's irritating - but the fact the *one* visa was expedited by Blunkett to get that hectoring cow off his back can only have moved the rest of the visa queue back by a single place. It's not as if it were a matter of processing the nannies visa or all the rest.

And I think he's a bit right wing for the BNP. Perhaps he and Norman Tebbit could form a new party - the Ghengis Khan party perhaps.

(Is Norman Tebbit still alive?)

Cool - 12 hours he's been gone, and human rights are improving already!

Is it up to me to draw the parallels between the current administration and the later years of Tory rule under Mrs T and that grey bloke?

Rampant abuse of power? Tick.
One law for us, another for the plebs? Tick (ref: P Mandelson)
Enforcement of unpopular laws because "It will be good for us"? Tick (ref: poll tax, id cards and just about every-bloody-thing else)
Lack of a credible opposition? Tick

It feels like it's 1994 all over again. How nice. Except here in Australia where we've started fighting the red (sorry, green) menace all over again and it actually feels like 1964.

I need a drink, and it's only 9:30 am
