[TONY BLIAR - WE WILL REMEMBER YOU!]
BLAIR'S balance sheet will end well
in the RED
[Daily Mail-February 16, 2007]
This may seem on the early side to be
writing the political obituary of Tony Blair, since he probably
has a few more months in office - say until mid -May, after Labour has
received a drubbing in the elections notably in Scotland.
But we may muse on what he will be
remembered for. Everyone will have their own little list. For what it is
worth, this is my list, in descending order of demerits.
Participating in the invasion of Iraq - against
much serious expert advice -and thus bringing the horror of suicide
bombers to the streets of London.
2. The failure,
failure, failure in education, education, education. We have seen a
collapse in academic standards along with declines in discipline.
Don't physically touch that child (health and Safety regs or even a
potential paedophilia charge.
3. The sharp and
unresisted rise in immigration which has imposed intolerable burden on
every public service, hospitals, schools, transport, welfare and so on.
4. Preposterous rises
in house pricies which have led to countless individuals being unable to
get on the property ladder, for which they would once have seen
themselves eminently qualified financially. And/or couples having to
take out mortgages of prodigious size and duration.
All of which has impacted on living
standards in terms of living space, which the official statistics do not
show. And/or which has lad to so many families accruing alarming debts
through buying normal goods on credit. For the main reason behind
this , see item 3 above.
and Punishment [PLENTY of the former with LESS of the
Sins include failing to build enough
prisons - despite ample warnings and opportunities - to house the
growing criminal population, many of whom have been let out on the
streets early, to the danger, sometimes fatal, of the public.
Alternatives to proper punishment, like
ASBOS, have largely been a FLOP.
6. A ludicrous
benefits system which now means, to take just one example, that it pays
a single mother to live on benefits rather than take employment.
Alongside that has been the large
numbers living on mainly pretended sickness benefit. It was going to be
tackled but that turned out to be
7. A general air of
corruption and sleaze in government - which I would not mind half as
much had not Blair promised when he came to office to be PURER than
8. The wanton
destruction of the originally excellent final salary pensions scheme,
which has left so many facing an IMPOVERISHED OLD AGE.
9. A humiliating
readiness to kowtow to the EU on almost every issue, however daft,
multiplying the existing and damaging burden of REGULATIONS.
10. The plethora of
stealth taxes which have boosted the Treasury coffers and left us with
LESS of our OWN money in OUR OWN POCKETS.
11. The failures
within the NHS. In mitigation, I am not sure that the present system is
workable anyway. (The Tories have NO SERIOUS PLANS to CHANGE THAT, by
Now you may say that items 6,8, and 10
are really faults which should be laid at the door of Chancellor Gordon
Brown. That is true up to a point -and a grim portent for the future
with him as LEADER.
BUT the fact remains that no
Chancellor can introduce any changes without the specific endorsement of
the Prime Minister. So they remain part of the

WHY WE ASK YOUR SUPPORT
When we first saw the petition we reasoned
that it had no chance of success from No 10 but we supported it
in order to gauge the number of Britons who would publicly put
their name to a list which stated that they wished to
RENUNCIATE EU CITIZENSHIP and retain only BRITISH.-THAT
IS WHAT THIS IS ABOUT. Some might say that to hide behind a
negative premise is both cowardly and playing into the hands of
the EU FEDERALISTS. DON'T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT- Place
