1984 campaign update

... from the Libertarian Party blog.
One hundred and fifty seven of our fellow citizens pledged to send their MP a copy in a six hour period yesterday afternoon. The pledges are still coming in.

Out of a population of 60 million, less the 32 million that are dependent on the State for their sustanance,the anger is there.

Remember, remember the fifth of November...


It's going a hell of a lot better than I expected it would.

It makes me happy.

I said it on Guthrum's blog, and I'll say it here too (I can't comment on the lpuk blog), but something that showed how many and which MPs have been taken so far might be a good idea. It needn't have to be anything fancy. I don't know if anything of that sort is in the works or not.

After they've all received their copies of 1984......I reckon they should all get copies of Kurt Vonnegut's "Player Piano".

It was Kurt Vonnegut who said
"If you can do a half-assed job of anything, you're a one-eyed man in a kingdom of the blind."

After that they should all get regular copies of everything recommended by Richard Bloody Medley and Judy Tits Out Flannigan.

I'd be willing to pay for the publication of outsized hardbacked copies of 1984. When The Day comes, we can use them to beat these fuckers in Parliament to death.

Your humble Devil apologises for his lack of posting: it has become increasingly difficult to actually put quill to vellum, as it were.

It's not purely that the political situation is rather uninspiring, it is also that I have become very much out of the habit of writing (about politics, at least). As such, every time that I fire up the blogging screen, I feel an incredible weariness.

I asked Pete to blog here because I thought that contemplating the actual mechanics of leaving the EU was important: I wanted to know, as much as anything. My reasons for voting Leave are actually very similar to Pete's, i.e. the rebooting of democracy and power structures in this country: however, he has a knowledge of the intricacies of the technical aspects that is beyond mine and I thought these worth setting down, here, for the record.

I shall try to post a little more frequently going forward. But, please, be warned that the reasons for eschewing this format haven't really gone away. My…

Gove's legacy?

Michael Gove has, quite honourably, said that it was right for Theresa may to sack him as a minister...
"I had six years when I was a government minister. I had a chance to make a difference - I hope that I did."The reforms that Michael Gove made in his time as Education Secretary will come to be seen as the most significant improvements to the British education system since the late 1800s—particularly in the introduction of Free Schools.

Gove made a difference—and his contribution should never be forgotten.
