Please Re-Post This One Nation Line


Are you, like me, totally fed up with those inane Facebook requests to re-post trite messages honouring some oppressed section of society or people with a terminal illness? I ignore them completely. If you really want to do something worthwhile, then donate to a suitable charity. Reposting something on Facebook is very simple, but achieves bugger all in terms of preventing cancer or funding research into motor-neurone disease. Donating a fiver achieves infinitely more!

Milliband is allegedly leading a One Nation Party. Isn't that by definition a totalitarian state, especially when a large proportion of the country won't vote for your party? His speech yesterday was cringeworthy in the extreme - it wasn't even rhetoric (much of it was lifted from the Tories, where it was equally inane). It was as inspiring as a flaccid, chamois leather and Milliband exhibited the leadership skills of a sheep. How on earth did he beat his brother in the leadership contest? Oh yes, I forgot, the unions wanted a tame sheep.

Time was when, if a department of government made a massive blunder, the minister in charge at the time would fall on his or her sword. Not any more, if the West Coast Main Line debacle is anything to go by - the incumbents at the time of the decision were moved to equally prestigious posts in Sept. What a shower.

  1. Yes, I am fed up with those posts. There has been a spate of posts lately along the lines of:
    'like' this photo if you are against child abuse/landmines/sending our troops to Iraq. If don't 'like' then you are agreeing with it.
    How infantile is that?
    And as for the supporting illnesses stuff - I had cancer 11 years ago and I don't believe social networks had anything at all to do with my recovery.
