Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Iraq, Iran And The Demopublican Party Plan ...

15 February 2007

Iraq, Iran And The Demopublican Party Plan ...

As our blog banner states, we say it as we see it - without exception.

So, here's how we're seeing things this afternoon.

While here's what we always foresaw.


Below, is how we've always seen Bush.


At last but by no means least -- here's 'our' Hilary.



Never has any woman we've ever known had so much to say -- but actually, always ended up saying so little. And most of the 'little' -- in the main, meant nothing.

Consider her latest kind of double-talking, crappy-quote, clap-trap.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton warned President Bush on Wednesday not to take any military action against Iran ...

What?

She warned him?

Bollix, brothers and sisters.

Read the 'small print'.

Because (as always), Hilary insists on inserting her individual 'insurance' rider.

... without getting congressional approval first.

Well, as far as we're concerned - when ever and where ever - Mrs Hilary Rodham Clinton is concerned -- riders are all too ruddy regular occurrences.

(snip)

Clinton, a member of the Armed Services Committee, voted in 2002 to give Bush the authority to use military force in Iraq ...

Here's where to go for more -- if you're a masochist.

Obviously, official-opposition-wise things are every bit as bad - on both sides of our ocean.

Let's face it friends, the fact is that these days we're all faced with only a one political party, choice.

In the UK it's 'New Tory'.

In the US it's 'Demopublican'.

Looks like that picture was taken as they were on the way to the bank together.

I agree with you 'old Brit' 100%.

There is not a dime of difference between those parties, and among most of the 'representatives', who no longer represent anybody but themselves, and a rapacious small elite, who is bend for destruction on a terrible scale. That's their constituent, and only very few exception left, from the effect of this bitter and sweeping statement. Indeed, we are at the point, when they no longer bother to hide it too much either.

It is truly a nauseous experience to watch these people laughing and 'schmoozing' with each other, while the earstwhile Great Republic, which was at one time truly a beacon and hope for the World's poor, wretched and oppressed, is fading away even from our memory.

You're in good company, old Brit. Especially when talking about the no-choice, UK choice.

Noel Gallagher's saying it how he sees it too.

Oasis's Noel attacks Blair record

Tony Blair could have been John F Kennedy, Mr Gallagher said
Oasis's Noel Gallagher - who famously chatted with Tony Blair in Downing Street in 1997 - has launched a scathing attack on the prime minister.

He said people had thought Mr Blair "was going to be John F Kennedy", but he was now "saddled" with the Iraq war.

Tory leader David Cameron, meanwhile, was "no different" from Mr Blair and was "like a songwriter who's eternally ripping off someone else's song".

He told BBC Newsnight he did not think there was "anything left to vote for".


Here's how he really lets our politicos have it - good style

And remember, the Gallaghers were typical council estate, working class kids made good. The very backbone of the [traditional] Labour party.

Politics is just a big business and as for the politicians, they're ALL business PARTNERS, whatever colours they fly.

No wonder less and less people take the trouble to vote. I'm not saying they're right but I understand completely where they're coming from when they talk of tweedle-dum and tweedle-deed.

Once any political party gets too big it then becomes all about 'the party' - with the people trailing a long way behind in a distant second place.

But what's the answer?

On this side of the Pond we consider Politics Showbusiness for Ugly People, alas, we seem to be at the Bedrock, Granitic level.

The answer? Surely, it's voting against the New Tories. How long do we want to be trapped by the two party myth. I think my vote would be thrown away on Blairalikes Brown or Cameron, but well-spent on Respect or Greens or someone.
