Things Can Only Get... Or Lest We Forget



I found this on Youtube this morning. Quite a powerful denunciation of New Labour, even if you don't agree with all of its content.

Brilliant!! Everybody has to remember that Blair never had any sort of experience in Government before he became Prime Minister.

He thought it was all going to be so easy by just throwing money at everything,complete with targets.

WRONG!!

Laurence Boyce said...

No, I think I agree with every word of that. Blair – liar, war criminal, and . . .TWAT! Very good.

Whats not to agree with???

anon and on and on said...

I see Macavity Brown's guest appearance in the video ended up on the cutting room floor. Again.

So Blair told a pack of lies and we all fell for it? - including the Conservatives; well actually far more Conservatives, proportionally.
Personally, I dont care much about the sale of honours; that is more a problem for the Peers who think their currency of Greatness and Goodness has become debased.
What concerns me is despite all the evidence of falsehood being out there, certainly in the blogoshere, concerning yellowcake, alluminium tubes, mobile biological weapons laboratories, Sadam Hussein's sponsorship of al Qaeda etc, the goverment and the opposition apparently fell for, which frankly has brought me to the conclusion that the real scandal is the sale of our foreign policy by politicians, turning their heads away while crasping mazuma in their palms.

Nice one Iain - thanks for providing the link. As Anon @ 2:00PM says 'What is there to disagree with?'

Iain Dale said...

The only bit that caused me to wince was the Israwl bit at the end.

Then you need to think about it more Iain. Its not that they dont have a right to defend themselves it was the heartless attitude of Bush and Blair in allowing it to go on so long. That is what really turned the people off Bliar, his behaviour was sickening. Do you think the Iraq war would still be going on if the public had seen the same kind of images of destruction from the start?? The only reason we saw it was the independent news people and the fact we were not directly involved. Do you think the Blair Broadcasting Corp would have shown identical imamges of destroyed Iraqi homes every night for 4 years? No thought not.

How can we condone that behaviour?

Iain Dale said...

Oh God, here we go again... That'll learn me to mention Israel...

Chuck Unsworth said...

In my view it doesn't go anywhere near far enough. All sorts of other matters - Ecclestone, Carole Caplin and friends, Derry Irvine, Mittal, Falconer, Jowell/Mills, Berlusconi, Cliff Richard, Barry Gibb, all those peerages and honours - the list is simply enormous and endless.

It would be a great service to the nation if a list of these toadies, cronies and hangers-on could be published in every newspaper. Then people might begin to realise the full extent of the New Labour rip-off.

Nice one, excellent! Thanks for this, Iain. Agree with those others too who've said, 'what's not to agree with?'

Yes, it could have dug further into nulab corruption and sleeze. However it's easy for those of us who've never produced a film of this nature to sit on the sidelines and criticise.

Another glaring omission: City Academies.

Sabretache said...

I Like it! - Why not send the producers an updated edition of the 'Little Red Book'. We could maybe then have a feature length version that includes the lot - all that we know about anyway.

Seriously though, with three election victories under his belt and a personal popularity rating that is apparently on the rise again, what does all this say about an electorate that, by common consent tends to get the government it deserves? Rhetorical question that.

Just wish I'd buggered off to Tasmania 40 years ago.

Stan said...

It just shows the terrible legacy left by IDS to his successors over Iraq.

The greatest abdication of opposition since the second world war and the Tories are still wrestling with it.

I suspect the vast majority of Tories agree with everything in this video but don't dare say so.

The fallout from positions adopted over the Iraq war will last for a generation.

Laurence Boyce said...

Stan makes an interesting point. If the Tories were not so obsessed over Europe, Ken Clarke would in all likelihood be Prime Minister now, having walked the 2005 election on a consistent anti-war platform.

timmyhawk said...

Frankly it was rubbish. The corruption all fine and well: Blair has recently presided over the most corrupt ogervnement for a century or more. That said, mere corruption isn't the big issue, it's par for the course. Question is did he/they govern well? Hardly. If you want to criticise, concentrate on that instead of flimflam. That largely goes for the Iraq points raised as well. Blair lied over Iraq? What's new, he's been misldeading on everyting. And honestly, who really "fell" for the Iraq wmd story? I was a staunch invasion advocate largely on the basis that there weren't any serious quantities of NRBCs in Saddam's hands - yet. Blair bungled that again as well. But there's barely any serious criticism voiced about that.

Colin D said...

Iain:I will try not to mention Israel, whoever she is? But I can't see anything that is untrue, false,fake, bogus, sham, phony, counterfeit,forged,or wrong in the clip: except that bloody smirk!
enjoy your evening out, may it be a goodun for your folks as well

brilliant - says it all - the only thing the Tories had right since 1997 was the DEMON EYES poster. Otherwise they are all twats and liars too.

V good! But he missed out so many items! Cherie walks through the Green Channel at Customs while carrying $15,000 of free gifts from Donna Karen New York.

While Blair was in DC to see Mr Bush, and Cherie happened to also be there giving her speech, she was staying as a guest at the British Embassy on what was,in effect, a private business trip. Her speech was also introduced by the British Ambassador, who was used to enhance Cherie's commercial credibility and fee.

John Prescott did not declare to the Parliamentary gifts registry approximately $20,000 of expensive Western wear, given to him by the Colorado rancher who wanted to be awarded the British casino franchise.

John Prescott committede criminal assault when he punched a voter in the face.

John Prescott used his ministerial car to drive his secretary to assignations.

Jack Straw's driver, with Straw in the car, drove at 106 mph down the MI.

I believe two-time resignee and all round creep David Blunkett still has his ministerial car.

Blair has received expensive presents from Sylvio Berlusconi and declared them to Parliament at strangely discounted rates.

Blair has some explaining to do over the sudden and inexplicable death of Dr David Kelly.

I'm sure others will recall other disgraceful, corrupt events.

Tom Tyler said...

Hmmmm....clear to me that this video was produced not by conservatives, but by the snot-eating leftist Old Labour communists, who are happy enough to denounce Blair (not Labour, you understand, just Blair) because he is not the Neil Kinnock fascist that they really want to see as leader of their crumby party.
When they sing "things can only get better", they're thinking of Gordon Bogey-man Brown or some other communist piece of filth as leader of the "true" Labour party.

dynamite said...

It is a little cheeky to cry "um...look at what they did" when you know your lot would in all probability have done just the same, since most of it IS about Iraq. Also, who gives a damn about things like Ron Davies resigning, it's the people who haven't resigned most of us are bothered about.

John said...

great film although surprised to see it on here considering that Blair only got away with so many of his crimes with Tory help!

I've always thought that Nu Labour and the Conservatives should have teamed up a long time ago.. what's the difference?

verity said...

Tom Tyler - I think I agree with you. The bit about Israel at the end was very chilling and not at all amusing.

ezra said...

The only thing is, with regards to Iraq, what has been done that the Tories would have done differently?

John said...

No the Israel bit isn't chilling or a cause to wince - it is bang on actually. Israel is a terrorist state and is almost as dangerous as the US. (If it was powerful in its own right and didn't rely so heavily on US financial aid, it would be AS dangerous).

verity said...

John - communists like yourself are always arrogant, but do not try to instruct me on what I find chilling.

The bit about Israel was chilling and sickening.

John said...

no it wasn't chilling and sickening. It was quite true. You Verity seem to be somewhat of a far-right extremist.

verity said...

Hmmmm ... so the left, as always, resorts to insults and accusations rather than arguements.

John, as you and your ilk consider anyone to the right of Marx "far right", I won't trouble to argue the definition with you.

But certainly, I am on the right and opposed to state interference, command economies, state education driven by political agenda, and the thought-fascism of "political correctness". I don't recall the citizenry requesting the government to decide for them what they are allowed to think or say.

I also favour one rule of law applying to everyone; not just the indigenes who own the country.

John said...

who are the indigenes that own the country? They sound cool, I'd like to meet them some day.

verity said...

Well, I'm one of them, John. But I wouldn't like to meet you. There are around 45m of us,so you probably see some every day, depending on where you live.

Computation: 60m population of whom 3m (don't believe the government) are islamics. That leaves 57m. Rough guess, other immigrant groups - the Vikings, he Romans, the Normans, etc - would account for around 12m in today's terms.

Anonymous said...

Iain, don't back down - you were right. The bit about the recent Hezbollah-Israeli conflict in Lebanon was so obviously just dragged into the flick. Which was by no means an amateur production,but was a bit drab. Cherie alone (why did Mandelson never finger her for the Hindujas?) would provide the most searing indictment of the NuLab 'project' (which in the US, rather fittingly, means 'taxpayer funded housing estate').
The Groundhog has not yet emerged from Number 10.

verity said...

Second time round after listening again, this is an unpleasant exercise, although the production and the guy's voice are really seductive ... but go through it again and there are many images I didn't like - as in the shadow of a cross on a floor while the singer was propagandising.

It shows you how far the Marxists have come from sandals and tie-died jeans. Because the production really was very professional and carried an evil, anti-civilisation message.

verity said...

Third time round - brilliant.

For one thing, they contra-played the words the singer was singing against distracting words on the screen. Or the other way round. Either way, they had two sets of words coming at the listener/viewer and the effect was intentionally confusing.

They used a font as in a typewriter batting out war despatches. Sometimes they coloured it slightly pink.

Little Michael Jackson squeaks from the singer.

Really good production values so the listener watcher is lulled into a false sense of comfort.

This is a totally brilliant piece of work.

It's evil, and shows us how far the left has come. I haven't seen anything half this clever from the right.

John said...

verity said: "60m population of whom 3m (don't believe the government) are islamics."

Is that all, I was hoping there would be more islamics :-(

verity said...

John, why am I not surprised that you believe in hanging or stoning to death homosexuals, beating women up, actually murdering women for committing "honour crimes" and the genital mutilation of little girls?

There are around 3m of them in Britain, but I know some countries where they have far more of them. Saudi Arabia. Pakistan. Bangladesh. Somalia. And many other centres of civilisation and progress. Bon voyage!

John said...

sounds like the Tory manifesto to me!

;-)

Thanks for the link, Iain, it makes me feel mad all over again at the NL voters' gullibility and the Cons' disarray.
