New Labour Reflections - In The Tenth Year

So, it has now been almost ten years since old Consumption (Tony Blair) first started running aournd the country crying out those now well worn platitudes "Trust me, Trust me!" "No sleaze, No sleaze!". What have we learnt in the intevening period?

Well, firstly we have learnt that the old "Trust me" ploy was just that, a ploy; personally if someone has to ask me to trust them I am always very suspicious of what they are hiding up their sleeve. Quite frankly I have never liked or trusted Blair; and we have all now learnt that he was never to be trusted and has constantly lied to the electorate.

Secondly, we had the "No sleaze" promise; what a damp squib that one turned out to be! Starting with Bernie Ecclestone and his brown envelope containing a million quid ("we don't really want to ban tobacco sponsorship of motor racing now do we?"); Mandy and Geoffrey Robinson; Alastair Campbell and the BBC; Mandy and the Hinduja Brothers; Mandy and anyhting else; Blunkett (almost equalling Mandy in the sleaze stakes, but not quite); and this is just a few of the sleazy goings on of these New Labour politicians since they have been in government. Those very same politicians who were throwing the "sleaze" comment at the Tories in the pre-election period; methinks there was just a touch of pot and kettle there...

Don't get me wrong here, I am not, never was, and never will be a Tory supporter; I am a good old fashioned Socialist, and I am not, never have been, and never will be a supporter of the bunch of morally bankrupt loonies that are, at present, running this country.

Oh, I almost forgot, if you have the odd million quid lying around in your back pocket stick it in a brown envelope, bung it to New Labour, and get yourself a peerage!
