I haven’t written anything for a few weeks. Partly the reason has been practical; after a period of having builders doing a series of jobs scattered around the homestead every free moment has been taken up with finishing off. All the time consuming stuff that I’m much too mean to pay someone else to do, like clearing up, finishing the woodwork, exterior fittings, decorating and the like. The other reason however has been the overwhelming stream of rubbish, nonsense, lies, ineptitude and dishonesty that has been assailing us from the media and political organisations, I don’t even know where to even start?
This isn’t the time of year to be miserable so I’ll just continue to watch the unfolding omnishambles for a few more days. I simply can’t make any sense of Cameron whatsoever. Even assuming the worst of the man and my having given up on party politics as a sham anyhow one would assume he wanted to win the next election.
Yet he has done nothing but pick divisive and emotive issues, like gay marriage, alcohol pricing, web surveillance, and just this week web filtering. His MO seems to be to take a firm position that deliberately alienates traditional conservative voter support, then, having done maximum damage to himself and his party, he backs down and ‘U’ turns. That doesn’t win back those originally offended but also annoys and alienates all the people who supported his first position, thus everyone is unhappy with him. It’s as though he has a political death wish.
But for now, to anyone who finds themselves here. Have a good Christmas.
