The communication chaos at the heart of Labour

The Justice Secretary Jack Straw met with his shadow Dominic Grieve the day before Dr Evan Harris planned to introduce his Private Member’s Bill to amend the Act of Settlement, in order to agree a common position. It was evident to both these scholarly and spiritual men that the issues were immensely complex and sensitive and would have considerable implications for the Church of England Established. Mr Straw told Mr Grieve that HM Government would not be supporting the anti-discrimination/secularising agenda of Dr Harris, and that no serious consideration was being given to his proposals.

Early next morning – at 5.00am, to be precise – Mr Straw received a telephone call to inform him that the Prime Minister had given an interview in an aeroplane whilst flying over Peru, during which he announced to the world that he was in favour of the proposed reforms.

One might think the Prime Minister would have had the courtesy to inform his Justice Secretary, under whose constitutional aegis the matter properly falls. But then Mr Brown is neither scholarly nor spiritually sensitive. And that he does not take counsel from his ministers on such important matters is evidence of his autocratic arrogance and his pathological inability to listen.

And to top it all off, we, the tax payer, have been footing the bill for Jaquie's insatiable appetite for porn movies. Who would have thought? Enough said, too much information already! I mean its nearly dinner time, and its Sunday roast today.

If you pay peanuts, you need to keep a close eye on your monkeys.

his autocratic arrogance and his pathological inability to listen.

Just a couple of his legion of failings. A madman and The UK's PM. So very Labour.

Brown's Highway To Hell

If Your Grace will permit a link to Fraser Nelson over at the Spectator Coffee House, which says it all as far as it can be said.

1st step amend the Act of Settlement, last step form a republic. That is if we haven't been absorbed into the EU as a state. The point i'm getting at is this is just another nail in the coffin of our Nationhood. Its now pretty obvious that Labour are trying to destroy us as a Nation. I am speaking as a patriot and royalist.

It has been mischievously suggested that Brown's sudden interest with the Act of Settlement is a vindictive response to the Queen granting an unprecedented audience with Mervyn King. This is in regard to King's fears that Brown's suicidal economic policies are dangerous in the extreme.

The question I'd like to ask Mr. King is this - why did it take you so long to work that Brown is a total crackpot? Also, why boot protocol up the backside to take tea and biccies with Brenda? What is it you believe a so far reluctant constitutional monarch will do to help us get out of this mess?

Her Majesty could ask someone else to form a new government.

In that case it's about time Her Majesty got a right royal shift on. I mean, what's it going to take?

He obviously needs more rope, give it to him, as much as he needs. He is nearly there now.

It,s hard to find a comparison to our current PM, I mean even the sitcom "The New Statesman" would be hard pressed to make a political leader as inept in every way, I can't remember the last time He actually got something right, it's Basil Fawlty & Black Adder all rolled into one, plus a touch of Some Mothers Do Have 'em. The difference is of course that this is for real. But how do you get rid of Him? Someone suggested a new leader, Hmmm I wonder what Michael Nazir-Ali is planning, perhaps there's more to His retirement than meets the eye. Well We can all dream can't We?

Them main problem with the Church of England is its constitutional relationship with the state. It has become the working man's Judas, selling him out to the neo-liberal capitalist model, which requires the working man to be at his machine and to take his solace from the buying power of his wage over any rewards that may come from what he might hear in the church on Sunday.

And my God how successful has been the betrayal here. No effort what so ever from the church to intervene in the orgy of moral destruction impaled through the heart of its flock. We have wandered in the wilderness of materialism, exploitation and murder. Lost in the desert sands of hopelessness, parading our trophies at each other like toothless lions, while at the same time starved of any real sustainance.

Innocent victims of our own blind willingness to gorge our insatiable appetites for more, we have journey far into the barren and soulless desert. There are those who will argue that the capitalist model has done much good, and to a large degree there is truth in this. The bible has many scriptures which describe work and wages, profit and principled business acumen. But in our blind hurry for more, we have taken upon ourselves the construction of a new Sodom and Gomorrah. Like the sheperdless flock, we have strayed far into the wild territories of destruction. But innocent victims we are still because we have not been entirely sheperdless throughout our wanderings. Always in the distance has been Judas, watching silently, a little nudge here, a turned cheek there, but never any warning, or any words of wisdom: quite the opposite. For in the distance there was another presence, watching and waiting: He had long ago sown his seeds, and waited silently for the reaping: who stands at his side now weeping? Judas!

Your Gracious Majesty,
our great nation is in grave peril, and I beg of you that you use what power and influence you have to set about to restore our Christian constitution.

We have strayed far from the path of light into the dark corners of error and misjudgment. The foolishness of our ways has been made plain to our eyes and hearts. Let us now return and make the rough places smooth once again. I beg that you use what power and influence you have to reform the church and a new constitutional relationship between God, church, crown and nation: Shatter down the doors of bronze and cut through their iron bars, and let in the light of truth and holy righteousness to shine across our green and pleasant land once again, in the name of the father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Amen

thank you joshua

i am puzzleing over the wake of this bills announcement as are many others , i can see that it has all the hallmarks of stalin , in that it is both a threat and an attempt to promote socialist supremacy by making some seem archaic and selfish.

the strange thing is , most other anti socialist who i have spoken with , are angry at seeing a madman at the lever of the demolition crane ball , in the sense of someone who cant get what he wants so goes and trashes your flower bed. they didnt quite use the word traitor (although it does show complete disregard for anyhting long crafted) more of how the pm has dissociated consulting the electorate , yet again a la lisbon.

i watched jack straw on telly , fumbling with somthing that pre dates the labour party , almost part realising he was seeing his own and his parties undoing.

wasnt jack greatfull for living in country (despite the unbalanced socialist attacks on it ) that had given so much to society and even the world .

of course its an old socialist theme to have a go at the royal family.

i keep wondering what a dull drab place Britain would be without its royal family , in a global world the queen , her palaces and guards are a tourist draw let alon her respect as a person of honest dealings internationally. prince charles has been leading the way with organic farming.

of course the socialist says (and the lib dems who pretend not to be socialist) that i should lose my sentimentality and nostolgia , as though a trip to see gordon brown would fill me with same sense pride .

perhaps a new labour , garden party , would consist of a few tins of special brew , all rise for the rendition of "wonderwall", a jolly game of dodge the mobile phone and round the day off with some pay for view from channel X and perhaps a super skunk spliff. i would then stumble my way home with all my sensual buttons having ben pressed,my dopamine levels in unbalance, going, wow nu lab is the biz mann !!.

i have to ask , whow did we arrive at such a wonk belief , that you can create a decent society , based on everyone tuning out , getting stoned and not giving a dam .

the students have taken over the commons , i do hope they grow up , before they cause any further damage.

god ,church, state and monarch is somthing that benefits us all despite what the net guru, new era folk tell us.
