I am absolutely fed of the incompetence of the Labour Party at the moment, we have some damned good policies, a viable alternative, and addressing the absolute shambles of a Government facing us, we should be decimating the Conservative Party in the opinion polls, yet we are level pegging, at best a f ew points ahead of a Government that has put 500,00 people on a precarious financial foothold, that has committed so many goofs it is embarrassing and what do does the Parliamentary Labour Party do, fall about like an end of term 6th Form. We need to ask why the message is not getting over, and blaming a biased press, and BBC is about as convincing as the Conservatives blaming Labour for everything that has gone wrong – we need to buckle and give this shower of a Government a run for its money!
We had our day in the sun with the Murdoch travesty, we had the Government on the defensive, this was our Westland Moment (which came within one question of toppling the Thatcher Government) – which could have toppled the Government, but we let up, we took our eye off the ball (no pun, I am too damn angry).
On a day when we should have had the Government Front Bench hiding their head in shame, we are back on the defensive, it beginning to feel like the Michael Foot opposition – great ideas, a crap Government but failing to score.
Has the Labour got answers to the following questions, is it bothered about getting answers:
The relationship between Cameron and Coulson, and who vetted him? – officially they did not record who vetted him, so are we sure he was vetted?
The relationship between Cameron and Rebekah Brooks in her (ex) capacity News International Chief Exec?
The UKBA emails and is Theresa May culpable in the relaxed border controls that allowed illegal immigrants into the country?
Instead we have Diane Abbot making stupid remarks on Twitter and keeping her job, the Labour Scottish MP and his Nazi spoof YouTube caricture of Salmond, and whist we are seeing record rises in unemployment, the GDP figures being revised down (Germany has managed 3% growth compared to our 0.7%), absurd suggestions from the Minister of Education about RoyalYachts, unworkable changes to OFSTED, a Prime Minster’s friends with Clarkson, and a Deputy Prime Minister who basically Cameron’s ‘Bag Man’ and kept out of the loop in important decisions regarding Europe. On top of all that this Government just had a Bill passed in the Lords that is going to hurt 500,00 disabled people who are going to be subjected to medical and form fillings when they are in a place of pain, and many losing support all to save £1.4Billion, when the Government has just announced £32Billion on a High Speed Line, not even part of a network.
Above all else this Government is privatising the NHS – the only effective opposition to this Government has been the Occupy Movement, just look what Ed Milliband has been on about Consumer Rights, get real, and saying that Labour would accept the cuts the Tories have proposed – Ed Milliband might as well not bothered turning up at PMQ’s, and just given Cameron free rein, which he has, to ridicule the opposition.
Does anyone care about what this Government is doing?
Wednesday should make Cameron quake in his boots, instead we are giving him gaff upon gaff to distract from his appalling tenure in No 10. We should be making Cameron’s life not worth living when he walks into the Chamber, but we are not we making it a doodle to distract from the woes of the country.
When are we going to get our act together, the last time it took 17 years, we need it to be less that 17 days!
It’s time to grow up, play time is over.
