During the years since 1997 the motorist, all 28 million of us have been used as a cash cow for Gordon Brown’s profligate spending with the ever increasing cost of fuel, speed and traffic cameras and Green Tax lies to try and extort still more money from the motoring public. From Brown’s first budget the cost of petrol and diesel has risen inexorably with the largest portion of the price of a litre of unleaded being tax; tax that we they pay VAT on!
Speed cameras spread like fleas on a hedgehog and quickly became a source of revenue, not a safety measure.
At the beginning of November the motorist and democracy were hit again when Brown changed the rules so that if you are found not guilty of a motoring offence you still have to pay the costs.
The chart from whatgas.com shows Labour’s poll rating against the price of a litre of unleaded, petrol was at it’s most expensive in July 2008, this is when the Conservatives had their biggest poll leads.
Several national newspapers have been predicting that unleaded will be £1.25 per litre at the time of the General Election.
Brown and Labour would do well to remember that 28 million of us own cars and we are fed up of being ripped off by Labour.
More delusional ramblings from the bunker including a commitment to the AGW scam which if god forbid he could carry through would cut our GDP by £530 billion. It’s official the Prime Mentalist has given up with that nasty reality business and now lives in world he saved from financial disaster, while Al Gore will save him from the evil carbon monkey that lives in his closet.
Since the really scary Youtube video Labour now go for the podcast with a single picture of Gordon Brown with a thousand yard stare; as the thing that Cyclops fears most in the world looms ever larger on his event horizon: The General Election. You can see the trauma in his eyes people will cast judgement on him, and just maybe their view of his record will not be the same as his.
Earlier this year an increasingly beleaguered Gordon Brown was forced to appoint unelected peers and Labour MEP’s to his Government of All Talents.
The Goats did not last long either deserting the sinking ship nearly as fast as they were appointed, or proving like Glenys Kinnock to be totally out of their depth and sidelined very quickly, before dropping off the face of the earth.
Labour have long plugged Gordon Brown as an international statesman and hoped that if he hung out with King Hussein of America, some of the star dust would rub off on Brown. Unfortunately for Brown, Obama is proving about as popular in the USA, as Brown is in the UK; Obama is also showing the same indecision and dithering that has characterised Brown’s regime in the UK.
On the international stage the financial genius that is Gordon Brown was humiliated at the last G20 when:
“US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has said he “is not prepared to support” Gordon Brown’s call for a tax on bank transactions”
Gordon then flew into Copenhagen as the international statesman who would save the world. True to form apart from leading Al Gore into a broom cupboard, the cursed one eyed son of the Manse achieved nothing and in the international press got less coverage than Chavez and Australian PM Kevin Rudd.
“Gordon who?” as they say in the USA.
The final humiliation for Brown internationally was the execution of Akmal Shaikh for drug smuggling yesterday. Brown had lobbied the Chinese extensively for clemency on more than one occaision, the Chinese ignored Brown.
It cant have helped Shaikh’s case that Brown and Ed Milliband blamed the Chinese for the Copenhagen summit failure. Brown’s angry reaction to the execution is just what Britain does not need right now: bad relations with the emergent economic super power.
Gordon Brown has been a disaster for this country as Chancellor, as Prime Minister and as the international statesman.
This has been more a government of Goits than Goats.
