Gordon is a Loser

Gordon is a loser etc

The nearly man of British politics, Blairy's "friend" and neighbour, Gordon "Smiler" Brown is putting his considerable "personality" behind Nanny's proposals for ID cards.

You will recall last week that "Smiler" managed to lose the Dunfermline by election, by a swing of 16%, to the party that has issues with drink and rent boys.

Quite an achievement!


Anyhoo, today "Smiler" in advance of tonight's vote on ID cards is saying that ID cards will prevent terrorism.

Erm....not quite true Gordon.

The 7/7 tube and bus bombers were British citizens, they would have had ID cards. The useless and pathetic "shoe bomber" Richard Reid was British, and would have had an ID card. Captain Hook, the mad Mullah from London, was known about for seven years yet nothing was done; ID cards would have made no difference in his case either.

In short, ID cards would not have made the slightest difference.

Gordon, my old mucker, you are talking nonsense!

Even Blairy may sense that this is a lost cause, as it seems that Blairy's plane is having some engine trouble; as a result, Blairy will not be able to attend tonight's vote.

Just to remind you why ID cards are bollocks, here are the top ten reasons why they are bollocks.


  1. It is high time that this insidious proposed legislation be abandoned in favour of a more 'respectful' society, not one which views every citizen as being a potential terrorist, criminal, peadophile or other unworthy slug.

    The Scots showed Blair/Brown/Clarke and the rest of the 'Humpty Dumpty' gang what they though of them. I'm extremely surprised that the message has not yet dawned upon the dim minds of those in Government yet.

    The approach they are taking seems to be just like the post yesterday re. electronic safety devices in cars. Keep plugging away and people turn off, just like they allegedly stop concentrating once they have been told things are 'safer'.

    After which they are more tolerant of whatever the next message is.

    These people, Brown in particular, are simply deviant social experimenters. Brown should be made to spell out at length and in detail exactly how an ID card would make me safer and why I should pay any money for it at all since presumably the extra safety would allow HMG to cut costs elsewhere. That's the usual BS for such approaches isn't it? "If we regulate this then that will improve and save the taxpayer/NHS/Exchaquer XXX Billions in the next 5 minutes.

    All complete speculative BS since they have 5 more ways of spending the 'saved' cash already primed and waiting to be unleashed.

    One of the classics in recent years is the intention of increasing the Road Fund Licence (Road Tax) on the basis that the current cost is not covered by the revenue - which is quite remarkable really! Why not? I have to ask.

    Now normal process would consider simply discontinuing the system which seems to be fraught with errors anyway. But the proposed solution was to recruit more staff and increase the charges.

    Quite how increasing the costs of something which is now vital to the economy (and will be ever more so it seems while they keep closing down the public transport that they claim is a viable alternative to private cars.) whilst increasing the overheads can be considered a worthwhile approach I really don't understand. Unless of course the admin of the bureaucracy is to be handed ot one of the crony organisations and the extra staff are to be turned into guaranteed nu labia voters in a key marginal.

    That would make sense, absent any moral considerations.

  3. Well clearly, from last night's vote, our politicians seem to be intent on sleep-walking into the 'Big Brother' state.

    ID cards have been talked about for years and dropped, quite reasonably - but now that Blair et al have their so called 'terrorism and crime' excuses, the drone politicians who frequent the halls of Westminster have just droned on!!!

    When will we have politicians in this country who are free thinking and act on behalf of us all?? The UK is gasping heavily for air, which currently is not being provided.

    There's another point against ID cards preventing terrorism - spain already has them, and someone still blew up a few trains over there.
