The Return of the Tories

May 12, 2010

They’re back! The old etonians have taken over the asylum. Welcome back?  I think not. I consider this ‘historic’ moment a sad day in Britain. Having grown up under Thatcher and her cronies from ’79 to ’97, I truly dread the Conservatives taking back control of this country. The only saving grace is that the coalition with the Lib Dems has clipped their wings….for now.

David Cameron is now the 19th Prime Minister to hail from Eton. Says it all really. Despite his claims of modernisation of the tories, they are still a middle and upper class group who despise the working class people of this country. They also loath the NHS and would surely love to dismantle it. They’re the party whose members were born with silver spoons in their mouths. As for Nick Clegg, he’s cut from the same cloth. Just another toff. Classless soicety? My…there’s goes a pig flying by my window.

The Lib Dems should adopt the Beach Boys song ‘Wipeout’ because that’s what will happen to their MP’s at the next election. And we won’t have five years to wait for that. I reckon by 2012 we’ll be trudging back to the polls. In the meantime, God help us all!

Easter egg goodness

April 1, 2010

Ahh! The joys of Easter are upon us once again. I love this time of year. For many people, it’s a time to reflect on the sacrifice Jesus gave when he died on the cross for the sins of many. For others, it’s a time to pig out on lots of chocolate easter eggs.

I fall into the latter category. Well I had planned on chowing down on a nice Rolo egg, but alas I’ve been sworn off sugar for the next month due to  dietary reasons. It’s so frustrating as this is the first Easter I’ve spent in the UK since 2001. During my absence I’ve had egg parcels sent to me by friends and family or paying exorbitant prices for imported eggs.

I’ve dreamt of this moment for nearly ten years and now it’s all been scuppered. Damn you sugar gods. Damn you all to hell!!!!
