Local Government needs a very big shake up, and councillors and people who work for most councils need to be reminded that they are public servants, here to serve us the public, not to lay down the the law to us.
There is talk about legislation for voters to have the right of recall for their MP and it would make sense to apply the same right for voters for Local Government.
One of the most common complaints about local democracy is the time it can take to change things. If you don’t like a policy or even a whole council leadership, it can take years to unseat councillors or drive your message home to the powers that be. Read the rest of this entry
Just over 11 months ago Gordon Brown appeared on our TV screens pushing the fear and junk science of Anthropogenic Global Warming, there were according to the man who abolished “boom and bust”, just 50 days to save the world. Events have proved that this statement made about as much sense as the abolition of boom and bust lie.
The warming alarmists applauded loudly, WWF and Friends of the Earth though all their Christmas’s were coming every year for ever more, Chavez and Mugabe were on the verge of ordering their Bugatti Veyrons with all the money the west was going to give them and then Climategate burst upon the scene and the rest is history.
As the Church of Climatology withered and died it was Ed Miliband and Labour that tried to keep the scam alive as a political force, Harriet Harpie just prior to the General Election Read the rest of this entry
Forrest Gump has announced his Shadow Cabinet, appointing Alan Johnson as Shadow Chancellor in a surprise move either aimed at keeping those tainted with the smell of Gordon Brown away from the finances, or Ed Miliband has branched out in to saving marriages by giving Cooper and Balls roughly equal jobs.

It been a while since Aardvark heard the news about the results of the Labtard Shadow Cabinet elections, it has taken this long for him to stop laughing and be able to type.
Ed Balls beaten soundly into third place and considerably less popular than the radiant Yvette, who can normally be found doing passable imitations of a bulldog licking piss off of stinging nettles.
Ed has since tweeted that “they are both vpleased with the result” though one suspects that one partner is probably a lot more vpleased than the other Read the rest of this entry
Hot news from Left Foot Forward Mrs Ed Balls aka Yvette Cooper is hot favourite to get the job of Shadow Chancellor, a job her husband desperately wants.
Sources close to Ed Miliband suggest that Cooper is considered to be the safer choice of the pair.
It gets worse for Ed Eunuch Balls though: Read the rest of this entry
More people who served in the Falklands War have committed suicide since the war ended, than were killed in combat operations, just think about that for a moment.
A large number of the homeless on the streets of Britain today are ex-service people, people who have fought for us will tonight bed down in a cardboard box in a shop doorway.
The cause of all this suffering and misery can be directly traced to the effects of combat and viewing sudden violent death, on a daily basis and what happens to the individual after the war is over.
There is very little Aardvark can find to applaud about this Coalition Government, however the news that Liam Fox is taking immediate steps to stop what he calls “the national scandal of post conflict suicides” is very good news Read the rest of this entry
