Labour haven’t a clue about what to do about the economy. It is clear that they do not have and never did have, a plan to get us out of the mess they got us into. Gordon Brown did not have the guts to show his face when George bravely read out his plans to put on the economy back on course. Alan Johnson tried to attack George’s plans as “ideological”. Hopeless. It reminds me of the Dylan song, Ballad of a Thin Man,..
“You walk into the room, With your pencil in your hand
You see somebody naked, And you say, “Who is that man ?”
You try so hard, But you don’t understand
Just what you’ll say, When you get home.
Because something is happening here
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?
On the above link is an iconic performance from the legendary Bob Dylan, accompanied by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Dylan’s voice drips with acid sarcasm as he sings ” There ought to be a law, Against you coming around. Next time you do, remember first to telephone!” If only we could say that to Brown, Blair, Campbell and the whole appalling shower. What remains of the Labour party are ineffectually pfaffing about, trying to make the country believe the Tories are taking strong measures out of some sadistic desire to hurt the poor and vulnerable, because that is their ideology. It is shameful and disgusting to even hint that.
The genius recording I was using of the Dylan song has been removed from You Tube! This so so sucks! I have replaced it with a recording of the song by Dylan and The Band, but it not such a good interpretation.
