Here's my pointless comment to the Brucester, on The Labourgraph:
Jack Maturin on February 17, 2010 at 08:29 PMUPDATE: A reminder about Uncle George's attitude towards voting:
Talk to the hand, Bruce, the face ain't listening.
There will be absolutely no discernible difference the day after election day in how the British government is run.
Yes, a few different apparatchiks in different suits may be picked up by the state's limousines, but outside the Westminster bubble nobody will notice the slightest difference in any of the corrupt useless policies of the state.
Welfarism will keep increasing, money printing will keep increasing, government spending will keep increasing, crime will keep increasing, educational standards will keep falling, and taxes will keep rising. The police will continue to grow more aggressive and inept, the hospitals will continue to be awash with bacteria, and the local councils will continue to keep increasing their charges for less and less services.
The government is not the solution, Bruce. The government is the problem.
Only when the government is cut down to a small fraction of its current size will any of us notice any difference in the continuing decivilisation of Britain.
That will not be achieved by socialist bed-wetters like Osborne and Cameron, who are too frightened of the client state to do anything about it except whisper behind their hands about it behind closed doors.
Hannan and Johnson could possibly do it, but even they would find the resistance of the Leviathan state too much to bear.
No, the best thing any of us can do is to not vote and to drain the legitimacy out of all Westminster politicians, and all of their stupid programmes that they wish to engineer upon us.
The only solution to all of the current messes imposed upon us by central government over the last 100 years, and their continuing interventions to fix the messes created by their previous interventions, is a destruction of the central government, its fiat currency, its printing press at the Bank of England, and the revival of freedom and the free market.
Can Cameron and Osborne deliver this? I won't be holding my breath.
