...just very busy.
Having said that though, it pleases me that in my absence, a regular troll of Old Holborn's has been keeping my presence very much alive. Thanks, mate!
With regards to this whole middle class sons-and-daughters-of-school-governors police brutality malarkey, I tend to find myself in agreement with Rab. The lefty students who support the idea of Labour's ratcheting up of the bully state for 13 years are now the ones publicly on the receiving end of it. And are sadly far too dim to realise that their ideology is the cause. This is what happens when you give certificates to spastics with side partings (perhaps now we can see why Labour were so keen).
Although in saying that, those now forming the Cleggeron Coagulation hardly conveyed the most vocal of opposition in past years, so let those fuckers take their share of the blame too. And the creepy hangers-on defending them.
But I digress. They may be indoctrinated, but seeing them getting a roughed up just doesn't affect me one iota, given what their more militant counterparts stand for.
If these are the brains of the future, then God help us. Not one voice opposed to high taxation, endless foreign aid, quangoes, bureaucracy, illegal wars, benefits 'n' housing for immigrants who've never worked here and don't even bother to learn the lingo, or our strictly democratic membership of the EU. All of which I dare say a significant amount of these stoodents would probably support, for no other reason than they've been told to support them.
Is this what we want? A generation of dipshits who do as they're told by suits? I thought they were rebels. Ha!
After apparently skipping all that, it's just gimme gimme gimme. Gimme the scraps thrown off the Big Table by the Elite, stolen from ordinary, tired, hardworking people (minimum wage earners too) at pain of violence and kidnap by the Almighty State they constantly demand "does something" to pay for degrees in flower arranging and golf club management. Well, now the Almighty State is doing something. It's YOUR turn now, crusties.
I fully expect to be hit with the argument that it'll be "my turn next". It will be anyway. It'll be everyone's turn at some point. It's what the students, the SWP and the trade unions wanted. But let us without big-governmental sin cast the first stone, eh?
Fuck 'em. Fuck 'em all. If a Marxist Utopian police state wasn't what a disproportionate amount of them wanted I might have some sympathy. But they do and I don't.
Sometimes, people just have to learn the hard way. Although I do admit, I have an interest in anyone holding their government to account (and sorely regret the crusties not doing serious damage to the Jug-Eared Prince and his Bit[ch]). I just wish it wasn't this lot doing it. It's entirely party political and principle can go and whistle, seemingly.
