A political advert that speaks to the UK mindset

By Mike Cunningham On March 31st, 2015

I have often compared Labour voters, up here in the former industrial heartland of England, to a bunch of sheep; but that is, truly, an injustice to the average sheep. Those Labour loyalists will vote for any nonentity, jobsworth or inheritor of a seat (council or Westminster) on the Buggins-turn basis, as long as they tie the Labour rosette around their fat necks, and pledge loyalty to the latest Labour nonentity who gets, or buys, sufficient Union votes to become Labour leader. The Lib-Dims are just as bad; those of a Tory persuasion are not visible, mainly from a self-preservation basis.

I received the first of the innumerable Election leaflets, promising roses, sunny days and everyone will be happy: if only we would vote Labour. And, folks, the worst part of that leaflet is that the sheep will believe it, and accept every word as Gospel!

But I saw yesterday the first really truthful campaign advert of this Election campaign, and although I may not vote for a UKIP candidate as I usually just spoil my vote out of sheer disgust at the choices available: based on the thinking behind this advert, I may well change my mind.

  1. Yeah, and what’s the betting Cameron will plead with the Malaysian government not to hang Abdullah, the man who stabbed to death two English medical students the other day.
    Although the two young lads were out there to help the people, this piece of crud disliked foreigners and wanted to kill them.

    President Najib Razak, whose government is closely modelled on our own parliamentary system of yore, still has the death penalty.

    I believe Nigel Farage is in favour of CP too, for wilful murder, and the thought of seeing this Muslim killer dangling would be a step in the right direction over here as well.

  2. “Sod the lot”

    Ironically, that is exactly what the ruling elite think of us serfs.

  3. As with so much of our physical infrastructure it seems that our political, moral and cultural equivalents are also in a similar state, – that of an ever increasingly speedy decline.

    So fragmented has our social unity become that I doubt that any Party, of whatever persuasion, can ever restore any form of sensible governance without some form of coalition. Such an answer is of course the quick and easy solution as far as our politicians are concerned.

    Part of the problem is the number of agreements, both trading and political made to allies and global entities such as the UN and NATO, and latterly to the EU, all of which are fine if looking towards a system of ‘world governance’ as a practical solution to global problems, such as ‘global warming’, but are very disruptive as far as local and national politics are concerned.

    Humanity’s global survival problems, it seems have been hijacked by ‘Big Business’, which, by its very culture of dishonesty and greed by a relative small group whose sole interest is ‘globalisation’, has destroyed many communities that have for centuries relied on local business and manufacture to provide a civilised quality of life for ‘locals’.

    Our politicians and business leaders have ‘of course’, jumped on the bandwagon, motivated by that old tactic of ‘seizing the main chance’, as exemplified by Blair.

    The current political and business scenario all points to some sort of eventual catastrophic event that can only result in a drastic reconstruction of ‘Life on Earth’, as we know it.

    As the rich get richer and the poor get poorer the options for change become very limited, and giving everyone an iPhone really isn’t the answer.

    Meanwhile, back on earth, do we vote, as usual, for the minimally ‘best of the worst’, or is the whole thing a gimmick and a waste of time?

    Abdullah….Abdullah….Islamic name check.
    Insane murderous violence…check.
    Hatred of Foreigners…check.
    Failure to mention motive in the press….check.
    Large Muslim presence….that’s a big check (according to Wikipedia).

    Yeah this is nothing to do with Islam move along Islam is peaceful, wonderful etc etc. Just thought I’d save our ‘powers that be’ the bother of re-iterating the standard line. Meanwhile I suggest we infidels have a little more situational awareness around weirdo oddball religions and the wacko adherents..

    Hope they execute the f***ker.

    Meanwhile I’m off to Rome in May to see the Pope and other tourist attractions. Obviously I’ll need to watch out for the provisional wing of the militant Roman Catholics……Beware Romans bearing Pizza’s no less.

    Maybe the morality of people voting influences who gets elected. When people like you Ernest who would use the tragedy and pain in someones life as a type of leverage against them are doing the voting you really can’t get decent people in office. You get scum when those that vote are scum…. like you.

    Now that is the reality on Earth.

    And here we go again ;-(

    I think just about the whole ATW community (apart from one or two hardy old souls) wished you a speedy recovery from your troubles, and wished your family well.

    Let it go.

  9. you’re right.

    Thank you.
