What’s wrong with Twitter

4 10 2009
Twitter is rather useless to be honest, though it is somewhat addictive

Well, I have officially ‘twitted’ (or twittered, I’m not sure on the accepted conventions yet) twice in my 5 hour twittering career.

I honestly find twitter to be a rather useless, though unexpectedly addictive experience. I will continue to post anything I find entertaining in the hope that someone else will enjoy it.

Anyway, if your reading this then please vote in the poll below and we’ll see what everyone else thinks.

If you answered yes to the above then fill in this poll also.

If yes to this, or even if u just feel like it, then please leave a comment on why.

Cd’s

23 11 2007

It would appear that 2 Cd’s have the power to invoke selective memory loss in a major section of the British population.

I was just reading the the BBC news websites article on the CD scandal (I’m sure I don’t have to explain but just in-case, click here). It says

“A Populus poll for The Times suggests those backing Labour’s ability to handle economic problems has been more than halved to 28%, with just a quarter deeming Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s administration “competent and capable”. “

and

“A YouGov poll for Channel 4 News gives the Conservatives a nine-point overall lead, its strongest position for 15 years, just weeks after Labour enjoyed an 11-point advantage in the same poll. “

So…

Have people just forgot how completely horribly and disgracefully (alot of ly’s) the conservatives handled the UK economy on multiple occasions. Margaret Thachter has basically become a dirty word!

Not implying that the Labour government in power aren’t completely incompetent as-well. They both are, and I get the feeling that the Liberal Democrats would be similar, although I can’t make judgment as they haven’t had a proper go yet.

I feel that as long as there are only a few options on the ballet form, the country will not progress. We seem to be locked in the never-ending cycle of Labour -> Conservative -> Labour etc. etc. Forgetting the opposition parties past flaws in the process of hounding out the one in power.

I believe that the only way to solve this would be an option on the form for none of the above. This would alert politicians to the general disillusionment of the Brittish people to there absolute nonsense policy lies and bravado which plagues current politics.

Why won’t politicians just tell the truth?

If they did everyone wouldn’t be up in arms when they don’t deliver, mainly because if they told the truth there policies wouldn’t include so much far fetched ideas.

It would probably sound something like –

We will upgrade all needing schools within the country, within the next 75 to 100 years

We will upgrade and improve the NHS, this will take between 25 and 30 years.

We won’t cut taxes, we will just shimmy it around a bit every year, this will mean that one year you may be well off but the next you won’t. It will all work out the same anyway.

P.s. we might increase taxes a wee bit.

Lets just face it Britain.

Our problems are not fixed overnight, so why do we expect our politicians to do exactly that.

I’m not saying that it’s our fault for holding our politicians on such high pedistals, because in the end it’s up to them whether they lie or not. I’m saying that the next time you vote, look for the politician with the most down to Earth, smart and implementable ideas.
