The election is creeping up on us, whether we like it or not. Can you feel the excitement? Or like me, is it nausea that you feel. I tend to refer to party political elections as the crooks and liars competition. A period when certain types of crooks and liars, get into a heightened state of frenzy. Each determined to out do all other crooks and liars, for the prize of entering The Westminster Houses of Hypocrisy and Corruption. A chance to grab all the fiddles and privileges that go with the trophy of MP.
They will prance about the country spewing out platitudes, promise and puerile bullshit. Each will try to surpass the others mythical claims of how they can create a paradise on earth, no lie is too big, no subterfuge too vulgar. There will be wheeling and dealing behind closed doors, there will be duplicity, there will be babies being kissed, and hands shaken, all phoney, all for effect. A special band of charlatans, masters of weaving and ducking, abusers of the English language, they will drink from any sewer, indulge in any back-stabbing, for that glittering prize, that badge of hypocrisy, MP, (Master Parasite). It will set them up for life, float them in a world of closed doors, and slush funds, a fat pension for life, all at our expense.
This from The Press Association:
The Tory candidate in a key general election marginal has been suspended after allegedly hatching a plot with far-right extremists to win votes by stirring up racial hatred.
Afzal Amin is accused of scheming with the English Defence League (EDL) to announce an inflammatory march against a new 'mega-mosque' in the seat of Dudley North.
But, according to the Mail on Sunday, the idea was for the protest to be scrapped with Mr Amin taking the credit for defusing the situation.
In return he allegedly promised that he would be an "unshakeable ally" for the EDL in parliament and help bring their views to the mainstream.
