I read an article in the Daily Wail entitled ' British politicians have rarely been so ridiculed and despised and that should worry us all'. It was written by senior labour party big shot, former cabinet member and socialist hypocrite David Blunkett who was revisiting a previous pamphlet entitled ' In Defence of Politics.
Its a pathetic, dishonest article, bleating on about how the decline in trust for politicians and ministers has resulted in a subsequent decline in the authority of parliament. He further bleats that politicians are a despised breed and held up for constant ridicule. He briefly mentions the expenses scandal and the wrecking of the economy as possible reasons but his main thrust is that this 'malaise is a threat to the governance of our country and a threat to democracy itself.
Who is this political fraudster trying to kid? The people's respect for politicians was on the skids long before the expenses scandal broke. This scandal proved what the people knew already, that the political class have no respect for the people they are supposed to serve and no respect whatsoever for their hard earned money. As far as David Blunkett and the rest of the shysters are concerned taxpayers money is theirs to spend as they see fit and for buying votes for their continuance in power.
More worryingly they believe there's an endless supply of it and when the supply of ready cash runs out, no problem they will just borrow billions more from China and our enemies and leave our children and grandchildren pick up the bill.
David Blunkett didn't raise a bleep of protest when the mentally disturbed, power hungry fanatic Gordon Brown systematically went on a taxpayer funded spending binge and who increased borrowing and debt at the top of the economic cycle when he should have been preparing for the downturn we all knew was coming.
There was not a squeak of protest from David Blunkett when Brown and Balls wantonly wrecked the best final salary pension schemes in the whole of Europe or when the two morons sold half of Great Britain's gold reserves for a rock bottom price costing the British people an estimated £16 billion.
Where was David Blunkett's concern for democracy when the megalomaniac Brown was foisted on the British people as their Prime Minister without a single popular being vote cast.
David Blunkett moans about the threat to democracy but he was a willing partner in a government that has handed over ever more of our sovereignty to the unelected, unrepentant Maoist Barrosso and that other appointed totalitarian Herman von Rumpoy who has openly stated he wants to destroy Great Britain as an independent sovereign country.
David Blunkett's concern for democracy couldn't stretch itself to opposing Peter Mandelson's calls for a government built for the European Union in a post democratic age.
David Blunkett has the gall to mention Philip Gould in glowing terms, referring to him as ' the brilliant labour party strategist'. That's not how I remember the guttersnipe.
Together with Alastair 'Dodgy Dossier' Campbell, Peter Mandelson and Phony Tony Blair, this is the man who was responsible for dragging British political life into the sewer where it remains to this day.
Gould's sole purpose in life was to achieve political power for Labour and keep it for all time. Thus we now have spin doctors, media managers, rebuttal units, centrally controlled 'lines to take' by our supine MP's. These manipulators divided the country up into special interest groups with each group cast as victims and then made promises unique to themselves in exchange for their votes.
Probably the most disgusting of all tools Gould and company gave us is the smear unit. These units are used to belittle, degrade and smear opponents or even perceived opponents of their tawdry regime.
So bad was Philip Gould and his fellow power hungry plotters that the smear units were often used against their own side. Thus we have the indignity of government ministers being briefed against and smeared by their own side.
David Blunkett's article is not contrition or a warning against extremism filling the vacuum left by the people ignoring a disrespected political class, it is a crude attempt at justifying their continuing existence.
Hence we have the ridiculous and outrageous lie that '' following the financial crisis, politicians were the ones that saved the Western world from complete financial meltdown in those dark days of 2008''.
So there you have it, David Blunkett and the politicians saved the world from complete disaster.
We don't know how lucky we are.
Does David Blunkett seriously think we are going to fall for this nonsense? Is this is what the elite, out of touch political class think of our intelligence?
It wasn't the people of Greece or the bankers that spent their country into oblivion it was Papandreou and his politicians, it was the terminally stupid Biffo and the politicians who did the same in Ireland, it was Berlisconni and the politicians in Italy and likewise Spain, Portugal and rest of the beleaguered Euroland.
More importantly for us it was with David Blunketts' approval that Gordon Brown, Ed Balls and the Labour politicians that spent Great Britain into bankruptcy.
The sub-prime mortgage scandal in America was directly caused by politicians interfering in the mortgage market, insisting that home loans be made to people who had no chance of repayment.
David Blunkett then goes on to suggest a solution or how to reconnect with the public and restore their faith in the political process. This is breath taking hypocrisy and I consider this section of this nonsense to be a bigger insult to my intelligence than the rest of his shameful article.
'' the first step is to be honest with the public. Politicians' habits of deceit and dissembling have exacted a terrible toll''.
This quote is an admission that David Blunkett and the political class deliberately and routinely lied to the British public in order to impose their ideologically driven political agenda.
To atone for this appalling admission he at least must step down with immediate effect and call a by election in his constituency. As a senior member of the last administration he has inside knowledge of all the other politicians who have deliberately lied and must convince them to do the same.
If David Blunkett wants the political class to start again and begin a new relationship with the governed then it will have have to be without him and the current political order. He and they are responsible for the current sad state of our country and its wrecked economy.
They have systematically and routinely lied to the people and they must go.
I for one will never trust these arrogant, lying, self serving bastards ever again.
