Cry.



It seems Labour have decided on their next campaign song. Appropriate choice of lyrics, at least. OldRightie already had an unbeatable photo so this was the best I could get.

There has been much blubbering lately from those we are supposed to look up to and respect. Ed the Ball has blubbered about his stammer, the Brown Gorgon and Spinmeister General Campbell have blubbered on TV and even the Church of Climatology has cottoned on to the public sympathy angle.

Yes indeed. Phil Jones, High Priest of Climatology, says he considered suicide. We are to share his horror at the death threats he has received from all over the world. Now, I don't do death threats and I don't agree with them at all. They are just silly. Yet I can have no sympathy for a man who has consistently threatened the entire population of the planet with death unless they do as he says. Whose threats have been shown to be based on some seriously dodgy data. That karma stuff, it's a real bitch sometimes, eh, Phil?

And life isn't improving for the Climatologists (copyright Bishop Hill) either. The Tories are moving towards an 'Oh no it isn't' stance just in time for voting day.

Spare a tear (of laughter) also for RK Patchycooly, whose drones have turned on him. How much proxy guilt are we expected to carry for these people? My total is 'none' and it will stay that way.

This is Britain. Inhabited by the British. A people who are very uncomfortable indeed with public displays of emotion and who, until recently, were brought up with the certainty that men don't cry in public. Men who cry are weak. We can't forget it. It's in our genes (even in my mongrel ones). Labour tried to change that. They tried to make us into passionate, volatile Continental types. For some, it has worked, but when they see their leaders crying and blubbering and whining about their problems, that genetic heritage will come back to the surface.

This is Britain. We don't respect you if you cower and cry. We don't want to know how you feel about anything at all. We are not remotely interested in your emotions and we don't understand them if you show them. We get edgy if you even stand too close. This is the country where Asperger's is normal. Here, you'd need to be well advanced along the autism spectrum before we'd even notice. And when we do notice, we won't worry about it.

We want leaders who will rage and fight against anything life throws at them. We want leaders who can stand up and say "Yes, I had a problem. I dealt with it. Forget it, it's not your business." We do not want to be run by a bunch of girlie men who blubber their way through life. That just won't work here. Any public emotional display makes us uncomfortable and we don't like to be uncomfortable. It's worse than vomiting at your host's dining table and it gets much the same reaction.

I hope blubbering is Labour's master plan for the election. I really, really hope it is.

I'm looking forward to the election. It's going to be top quality entertainment.


(Update - forgot to mention Weepy Jim Devine. The saying was 'Pigs might fly', Labour. Not 'cry').

Going for the sympathy vote is all Labour have now. How apt that the criminals turn themselves into victims.

How long before one of the expenses damned tries to blame it on bullying from Brown?

That's all there is left. Vote for me, or I'll cry, or scream and scream until I'm sick, or hold my breath until I go really red in the face.

I hope so, I'd find it monumentally entertaining. Perhaps we could line them up and make them humiliate themselves on the promise of a vote which holds as much water as a promise in a manifesto.

I hope they've really got something to cry about come May 7th.

I want to see Gordon Brown cry, I really do. But now is not the time.

I want to see Gordon Brown crying and wailing when he loses the election and has to be pulled, screaming, kicking and wailing like a little girl from 10 Downing Street.

I want to know that this useless Scottish fucker, who has done more damage to our Country, more damage to our public finances, more damage to our personal freedoms than any PM in living memory is going to spend the rest of his miserable fucking life sitting in rain-soaked Kirkcaldy crying himself to sleep every night wondering where he went wrong.

That, for me would be a small slice of solace for that fact that this cunt has burdened me and every other taxpayer in the UK with £800bn of additional debt (that's around £30k for each of us) which we are all going to spend the next 20 years paying off for him

I tell you this for free, if I ever run into the cunt crying will be the least of his worrys. I'll have the ugly fucker bleeding into the gutter for what he's done.

Snowolf - I cannot for the life of me think of any other group of so-called 'leaders' who imagine crying will earn them respect. They can only be aiming for the 'granny vote'. Although they've shafted granny's pension so the tea and biscuits might be in short supply there.

The Gorgon, it seems, now plans to sell Dover to the French. And still there are people who will vote for him! And those people are allowed out on their own!

I blame the Tories, you know. 'Care in the community' was their idea.

I want them to cry a hell of a lot more than that. After seeing the hell their policies have put friends through in the past decade, I hope they suffer badly.

OT, sorry.

Have you seen this:

"Scots smoking the same now as they were pre-ban. Government mystified. Etc, etc, etc, etc"

Bwahahahahahah!

"I told you so" just doesn't do it, somehow.

CR.

DP - they won't suffer as badly as they should. Nowhere near as badly.

We have an education system that's a shambles, borders you could drive a tank through without anyone noticing, a population scared of their own shadows. Now we have supposedly the best of Britain - our so-called leaders - blubbering on TV like five-year-olds denied a toy.

To cap it all, this latest Labour government ends not only with the most astounding debt this country has ever faced, but with members of Parliament facing criminal proceedings!

The shame and degradation they have brought on this country is beyond words.

And STILL there are people who will vote for them. Unbelievable.

Leg-iron said...

CR - thanks for that. Time for a bit of fun at the antismokers' expense.

This must be the ultimate measure of how out of touch and desperate these politicians are. How can they, in their wildest dreams, believe that this tactic will endear them to the public? I really, genuinely, honestly don't think they realise how much the people in this country loathe, hate and despise them. Far from feeling any sympathy for them, I hope they spend the rest of their miserable lives crying about the wholesale destruction which they have wreaked upon this country and its people. How dare they - how very dare they - try to play on people's emotions in this way? It's disgraceful, it's embarrassing and it's much, much too late.

Hugging! Now there is the tip of the wedge that started us on this rocky road.
