I have a broken finger so please excuse lack of finesse – if I ever had any – but just reading the news about the Tory Party Conference I to write something, or throw something, and writing is the less painful.
It’s the first full day of the Nasty Party Conference and I am already spitting feathers!
Sunday brought our beloved leader, fifth Cousin of Queen Betty, on TV telling the world he wouldn’t mind altering the EU Treaty, not Maastricht or Lisbon, but the Treaty of Rome, the one that established the EU, or European Common Market, just minor amendments like the free movement of labour with the EU. I have to confess an interest here that my partner is German and as much as I would love to live in Germany that is not going to happen in the near future. Cameron thinks there are too many Europeans in the UK, and like any fascist he needs a scapegoat, and that is the EU. Most Fascists look for s subset of a group, but our Dave, he goes for an entire continent. Of course David forgets the other side of the coin that many British people chose to work in other European countries, such as Spain, Germany and France to name three, I also have a friend working and living in Poland.
Of course we could seek a special relationship with Europe like Norway has. Norway sits in the EU Council as a obeserver,enjoying trade with the EU but not having any say in the rules but having to abide by them – this would suit the British down to the ground, alone, without influence, but being bound by the EU rules, we could carry on in our ‘splendid isolation’ forever British wallowing in past glories.
Today, Monday 8th October 2012, the glorious Chancellor took to the stage to talk to the faithful!
‘We are all in this together’ and will take money from people who have been made unemployed by our disastrous policies because our policies are disastrous and are not working, and will definitely not take a penny more from the people we gave a £16,000 bump in earning by reducing the rate of tax on the super rich who might want to sell a £2 Million Home, that is not equality. Then of course we have those people who are in work.
Just to prove that the Tory Party is the Party of Business, ie funded by business, they will empower workers to sell their employments rights for £2k, well not exactly £2,000, the employers will give employees £2,000 IN SHARES – when the employers decides to sack them the employee can sell the shares back to the employer, only at a fair rate; the fair rate will determined by the employer, of course if you were given an unfair rate you could legally challenge them, but not having a job you would be hard pressed to afford a lawyer …
Employee rights are just that, they are not privileges, they are not a birthright to be sold, they are protection for honest people trying to make a living.
This Government is thoroughly evil.
At a fringe meeting Lord Carey, of the Coalition for Marriage, spewed forth some of his bile about te effect of equal marriage in Mexico and the Netherlands that have, apparently – and I would like proof – of a three-way marriage, God forbid! Of course, and this explains why the Catholic Church opposes Equal Marriage, they would have to change the wording. Actually they wouldn’t and that is a stupid argument.
The other argument is that equal marriage was not in the manifesto, well neither was the privatisation of the National Health Service.
In two days the Tories have proved beyond a doubt that they are probably the nastiest government this country has ever had – the uncaring, unthinking, pathological set of ‘arrogant tory boys’ ever to sit on the Government bench
