EdM: Something is happening and you don’t know what it is…….

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.

  1. Of course it’s ideological! See how the Tories applauded as millions of lives were put into the crusher. The Tories know they may not have much time so they jumped straight in with these unnecessary cuts (most economists agree) at the behest of the IMF, an organisation that hates the public sector wherever it may be. Prior to the worldwide recession caused by the financial sector our deficit was running at a normal 1-3%, it only reached its current level due to the financial troublemakers – Brown then did exactly the right thing to try and pull us out of it, his actions endorsed by many economists while Cameron & Osborne shouted against them. Osborne, the £4m trustafarian who keeps on telling us ‘we’re all in it together’, brave? Do me a favour. I was no fan of the Labour government who themselves attacked the public sector, but your pals are out to destroy it, and the lives of millions in the process.

    • Andy, I am a Tory and I dread the idea of people suffering. The Tories were NOT applauding the thought of millions of lives put into the crusher. If Gordon cared about the poor of this country, how do you explain the 10p tax band fiasco? What triggered the credit crunch was sub-prime mortgages, and Gordon did not HAVE to let the banks invest in these. He could have imposed tighter regulation. And he spent like a maniac, with nothing put aside for a rainy day, like Labour governments always do.

      George Osborne is between a rock and a hard place. Public spending is not being reduced to anything like the level that it should be. Thanks to Gordon Brown, the National Debt will rise by £150 BILLION this year and George’s cuts will save a mere £81 billion. The Tories were applauding that George had the guts to do SOMETHING. Ed and Alan both look absolutely clueless, it is easy to criticise, strong measures are absolutely vital and I do believe that. They should hang their heads in shame. I don’t agree with the aid the coalition is dishing out, having read Boris’s article in the Telegraph this morning, see this website. They are definitely right to cut child benefit for the better off, and there are other things they could do in this regard. They didn’t “jump in”. They had to do something, unlike Gordon, who sat on his arse letting the debt mount, because he didn’t want to alienate the public.

      The hard truth is, nobody knows for sure what the best solution is, but one thing is for sure, Gordon f…… up majorly, and it is no good him or Labour pretending otherwise. Tories are not monsters, and blaming the measures on Tory idealogy is just a cheap shot that nobody is taking seriously. Let Labour have the balls to take responsibility for their 13 years in government, and the way uncontrolled immigration has ruined this country, but they don’t, do they?

      Oh and there was a little matter of a war I hated and despised, motivated by the ego of Tony Blair! I loathe the man and will hate him for ever for what he and Gordon have done to our brave men in our armies. Gordon starved them of the correct equipment and helicopters, to his everlasting shame. What about the thousands of Muslim kids who died? Blair and Brown should rot in hell is how I feel frankly.

  2. I actually think that all the worst Labourites, Blair, Brown, Ali C, Lord M. have gone and the remaing Labour leaders are nice guys. (Alan Johnson and Ed Miliband). But they are weak. I’m not saying that everthing the Tories are doing is right, but they face such an appalling job, how could that be? It’s easy to criticise, let LAbour acknowledge the dreadful mess they have made and how they betrayed this country, instead of preaching and prosing about the poor. THEY have hurt the poor.

    And I don’t know how anyone who was connected with the Brown and Blair governments has the bare faced nerve to speak in the House. And I can’t put it plainer than that.

    Nuff said!

    Fabulous post dahling!

  4. Thanks Catey. You know! The Tories have a hell of a situation to sort out and they are not going to get every single part right. Nobody could.

  5. Alan Johnson is a nice guy, but he has to attack on the ideological thing because they haven’t got a leg to stand on with any other argument. He is out of his depth, and so is Ed, they are clueless.

  6. Dylan getting his groove on. An unbelievable version of this song. Out of sight.

    • Antony, this is a particularly amazing version of the song. Dylan’s voice is at its peak, his phrasing and delivery are unbelievable, the arrangement is tremendous… Love how Dylan snarls out the lyrics. I cannot praise this recording highly enough.

  7. Thanks 🙂
