If Anything These Impoverished MPs Just Don't Earn Enough

You have to feel sorry for MPs don't you? I mean there they are, struggling away on their £66,000 salaries, barely able to make ends meet, constantly working for our country while 'scroungers' and 'shirkers' just sit around watching the world waste away at their nine-to-five, or even longer day jobs.

Iain Duncan Smith, In An Ideal World...

As his lips curled around the stained mug and the hot mud water reached his throat, he wished for the umpteenth time that he had never said that he could easily live on £53 a week. Iain did not know exactly how many times he'd wished this. He just knew it was more than he'd had non-tea or abuse bricks thrown through the window.

I could write pages and pages on Romney but it's there for you to find on the internet. It's not hidden away. He's a clear and present danger.

Boo to George Osbooooooorne!

I won't lie. I was starting to give up on humanity. I was feeling generally miserable about recent reports of record amounts of melting ice in the Arctic, Mitt Romney's eternally moronic campaign in the US and our current situation of ever rising economic destruction and damning of human rights by the Coalition.

The Long Lost Golden Era Of Comedy

Aside from getting confused about how anyone can listen to more than three dubstep tracks in a row without feeling like they need a shit, I am wary of criticising anything or pretending that it was much better in my day.

In the early moments of this morning it all became clear that we had a champion at the helm. After months and months of worry, indications that he may not carry it off, and general concern that after everything he's done, everything he's put himself and the country though, that we might not make it.

Workers and Shirkers

According to Cameron the Tories back those workers while Labour are busy backing the shirkers. If that's really true then based on definitions and the PM's logic, Milliband is backing the Conservative Party and Cameron is far more Red than Ed for supporting the labourers. These are the people running the country remember?

I'm not going to pretend to even begin to understand quantum physics, but sometimes I like to dwell on the idea of parallel universes and all the possibilities that they might hold.

Was Unpaid Jubilee Work Experience Good for the Soul?

How have we become a nation that presumes doing 'work experience' alongside the river Thames in the pouring rain for an event that happens once in a blue blooded moon will in any way lead to a valuable career?

People are bonkers. I know this. I witness it on a daily basis and have learnt in recent years that 'normal' is not something that happens in humanity.

Why the Public Sector are Right to Strike

The public sector, in my opinion is the most important of all the job areas in the UK, for they are the people employed to maintain some sense of order and safety amongst all us everyday loons who fart about on a daily basis landing ourselves in all sorts of mishaps.

I got sent an email yesterday. Woo yeah, big man huh? Getting an email like a flashy show off yeah? Yes, I realise its a mute first sentence, as I get emails everyday (more showing off) and the large majority of them have little to no relevance to your lives, let alone mine.

It must be hard being in the Liberal Democrats. Yes, I said it. I went there. But before you assume that I've donned a yellow tie, let me assure you that my favourite way of describing them is as not so much a political party, but more a terrible surprise party.

In amongst all this exciting, depressing and uninteresting stuff the UK has still been under the thrall of the possible destruction of our national health service. Yes, I'm going to go on about it again.

The Madness of King Cameron

While I'm no expert in psychological behaviour, I'm left wondering just which one of these Cameron and Lansley are suffering from. Ever since announcing the healthcare reform bill some months ago it has been opposed by over 250,000 medical health professionals, nearly every opposition party, every official medical association, the general public and even, this past week, members of the Conservative Party who would usually jump at such proposals.

A lovely thing happened in the world of UK politics yesterday. That's an odd sentence to write, I admit. Up until yesterday, if the adage "start as you mean to go on" has any bearing to it, then based on events so far, politics in 2012 is due to be a year round serving of uneasy quiche.
