Such a prescient, beautiful sentiment.

They Wonder Why!


"Former cabinet minister Hazel Blears' car has been attacked while she was out canvassing for votes.
The ex-communities secretary said she did not think her car had been targeted because of who she was and called the attack "pathetic and cowardly". "

Well, perhaps they just wanted to wipe that smug grin off her face and really had no idea who she is. Maybe that was the most hurtful, they did not know she is such an ever so important expenses fiddler? Maybe. Then what if they did know and this was an act of political violence and a precursor to anarchy breaking out?

That's scary.


  1. The unlovely Hazel was a solicitor in Wigan MBC at a time when there were things going on which made people wonder, notably in the handling of the property and finances of OAP's taken into care. The chances are that the rules were created to enable the Authority to take full advantage of both the regulations and any loopholes.

  3. It was going to happen sooner or later, OR, people have been pushed too far for years and remained stoical about Labour's vindictive form of government. People can only take so much and the British people have taken plenty - Labour have brought this upon themselves.

  4. @Startled Leafletter: What, pray, doe the people do when the authorities do not listen to their words.

    Blears got a scare, I am sure. That should concentrate her, and the government's, minds.

    Whoever committed that act may well have saved the arrogant bitch from a much worse fate.

  5. 'Political battles are won with words, not with fists'

    But what if your words are never allowed to be heard as is the case these days if you are not 'on Message' or oppose the Government. The minute an opposing argument is put to lets say immigration, you are shouted down as a racist, object to Gay marriage or adoption and you are a homophobic. Some of us have had more than enough of this nonsense but unfortunately have no political representation. As for 'facist and communist thugs' I suspect you ain't seen nothing yet and this New Labour Government will be to blame.

  6. this New Labour Government will be to blame

    even if the sun fell out of the sky you would say the same


    revealed thank you Edgar we now know who and what you are

    Very Stazi and it would be sinister, if not the work of some wannabee Walter Mitty.
    Keep it coming, Edgar!

    Barking Spider has a good point. Sadly violence is a last resort but historically has precedence many times over. Parlez francais, anyone for a start!

  9. You haven't got it in you oddrightie
    a stern letter to Times is about your limit.

  10. Anonymouse: from your previous posts it is quite clear that what you know is nothing.

    So, let me explain it to you. There are people, probably tens of thousands of people, who are prepared to take the law into their own hands if the greedy, thieving likes of Blears don't start listening.

    I am not advocating violence against her or anyone. But someone has obviously decide to fire a warning shot, and it would be very sensible of the stupid woman to take it seriously.

    She is a born liar, she attempted fraud, and a lot of people feel affronted that she continues to cling onto her post, while denying what is obvious to anyone.

    I am concerned for her safety, that's all.

  11. Actually, that last sentence needs further explanation. I hope that no more violence is visited on anyone, including Blears. But, to be frank, I'm not going to shed any tears if she keeps pushing her arrogance in everyone's faces and someone ends up giving her a slap.

  12. Perhaps you should reconvene

    The Committee of Public Safety

    You and Oddrightie and friends could then scour England making the nation safe.

    Maximilien Robespierre (1758-1794)
    We must smother the internal and external enemies of the Republic or perish with it; now in this situation, the first maxim of your policy ought to be to lead the people by reason and the people's enemies by terror.

    If the spring of popular government in time of peace is virtue, the springs of popular government in revolution are at once virtue and terror: virtue, without which terror is fatal; terror, without which virtue is powerless. Terror is nothing other than justice, prompt, severe, inflexible; it is therefore an emanation of virtue; it is not so much a special principle as it is a consequence of the general principle of democracy applied to our country's most urgent needs.

  13. "lead the people by reason and the people's enemies by terror"

    So that's what Hazel's car is all about!
