The working time directive

The E.U. is now trying to scrap Britains opt-out from the working time directive. This is clearly another attack by the europeans on the freedom and human rights of people everywhere. It will of course be a disaster for everyone, which is probably why they are doing it.

I have a new MP

Because my old MP retired. Fortunately Jeremy Hunt, the conservative candidate managed to hold my home constituancy of Surrey SW, which had been a Lib Dem target, with the majority increasing from just 861 to 5711. Overall, the election was much better than most people feared, with a much reduced majority for labour, although the prospect of Gordon Brown as prime minister is not a pleasant one. Laughably, Robert Kilroy-Silk was fourth in Erewash, where he was standing, which serves him right for ruining UKIP. The worst result, of course, was that George Galloway was elected. It does not bode well for the future of this country to have someone like him in parlaiment.

Why Labour will win the election

I have recently noticed a worrying pattern amongst a large segment of the electorate. A lot of people are saying/thinking the following:

"I have been a staunch labour supporter all my life, but now that 'Tony' got rid of that charming, entirely legitimate and not-at-all genocidal man in Iraq, I'll have to vote for someone else, but who? Obviously not the conservatives, for no reason in particular. Hmm, what about that nice Charlie Kennedy, he doesn't seem at all like an incompetent fopdoodle, or mabe one of those inconsequential socialist partys. Yes, a return to 1979 is just waht we need."

It beggars belief that so many people actually liked 'Tony' in the first place, but that people now seem to univerally despise him solely on the basis of the only thing he has done which isn't entirely indefensible is just absurd. Labour has raised innumerable stealth taxes, eroded civil liberties and the autority of the individual to an alarming degree, hacked away at trial by jury, and the concept of innocent until proven guilty, and completely removed the concept of innocent when proven innocent (The double jeopardy law was repealed on the same day that 6 party members were found guilty of electoral fraud).

What is also bizarre is that so many people discount out of the the idea of voting for the only party that could possibly replace Labour in government, namely the Conservatives. Perhaps when they are carted off to prison due to an inevitable error in the I.D. card databse they will realise just how dangerous it is to let 'Tony' stay in power.

Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy

I wrote a nice long review of this film, but then my computer decided to exercise it's editorial control by crashing moments before it was completed. So here's the short version: It's a travesty. Throw it into the total perspective vortex immediately, so as not to let it's butchered plot, wooden acting, and general ineptitude ever bother anyone else ever again.

Random Quote

Not to know what has been transacted in former times is to be always a child. If no use is made of the labors of past ages, the world must remain always in the infancy of knowledge.



There's a thunderstorm outside. It has lightning and everything.

Since there is an election approaching, I decided to do the test on Political Compass. The result was:

Economic Left/Right: 8.88(Almost all the way to the right)
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.31(Quite Libertarian)

Even though some of the questions are somewhat peculiar it appears to be fairly accurate, although -4.31 seems far too statist for my liking. (I think -10 would be better.)

Similarly, i did the test on Who should you vote for? which came out like this:

Who Should You Vote For?

Who should I vote for? v2

Your expected outcome:

UK Independence Party

Your actual outcome:

Labour -19
Conservative 43
Liberal Democrat -67
UK Independence Party 47
Green -34

You should vote: UK Independence Party

UKIP's primary focus is on Europe, where the party is strongly against joining both the EU constitution and the Euro. UKIP is also firmly in favour of limiting immigration. The party does not take a clear line on some other policy issues, but supports scrapping university tuition fees; it is strongly against income tax rises and favour reducing fuel duty.

Take the test at Who Should You Vote For

Since there isn't a UKIP candidate here, i should probably vote Conservative, although the Monster Raving Looney Party has some intriguing "Manicfesto" pledges, including:
"Our team of experts has decided that Income Tax has not proved popular with the public and will therefore be abolished"
" We will issue a 99p coin to save on change"
and best of all "The Official Monster Raving Loony Party will not join the single European currency. We will invite all Europeans countries to JOIN THE POUND


I'm bored, so i decided to make a blog. I might post some more entries later, or i might find something more interesting to do, like go to sleep.
