Subject: RE: BS: What the world thinks of America
Funny thing that, we have a Prime Minister here, who doesn't give fuck for the poor deluded people who elected him. Why should he worry what anybody thinks, he has a large majority, and a weak opposition. We've had again this morning, Peter Hain, one of our new portmanteau ministers, was quoted as being about to make a speech in favour of raising the highest rate of income tax. Well there was such an uproar, and next thing you know Downing St says, "We know nothing about this, it is not in our future plans" This is the same Downing St. that requires all its ministers etc. to submit speeches for vetting before they are made.It's the same old game, run it up the flagpole, see who salutes, and if nobody does so, deny that even the flagpole ever existed. I'm pissed off with being treated like an idiot by those we elected to run this shit hole of a country.
