Enough is enough

This is an open letter to David Cameron.

I wanted to believe that you Mr Cameron and your so called conservative (Spelt with the smallest c I could find) party were worth supporting.

All I can see is more and more broken promises whilst my taxes and bills soar.

Where is a proper discussion on the smoking ban that you promised? Seems to have disappeared in a puff of second hand smoke.

What is this obsession with wind turbines that is going to increase my energy bills by £250 a year? What’s that? Oh I see. Global warming has fried your brain.  How do they work with a high pressure area when there is no wind and the temperature is minus ten? How does that solar panel work when it’s covered in snow?

Why scrap the harrier jump jets and therefore end protection of our Navy for a mere £1 billion in savings when you could have scrapped the Tornado and saved £7 billion? How can you have a Navy without aircraft to defend it?

Why in God’s name have you ring fenced spending on the NHS when we all know how bloated it’s management has become? You’re abolishing targets in the NHS for A&E admission? But then you’re advocating performance indicators or some such crap. The whole idea Dave, should be to throw a layer of middle managers out, thus freeing up money that can actually be spent on care. All you’ve done is a name changing exercise instead of cutting out the cancer.

Where is the Bonfire of the Quangos that you promised?  I’ve seen more fire from a match.

Why have you ring fenced overseas spending for third world countries when we know that it will end up in Dictators’ pockets? (And of course the Indian space programme will do Nicely out of it).

Oh and where is that referendum on the EU that you promised us? I suppose that you’ve been too busy in the race to prop up the Euro? And it would appear that you can’t even put a cap on immigrants  from outside the EU now. And now the latest news is that you’ve surrendered sovereignty to Brussels. That used to be called Treason. In fact I’m sure it still is Dave.

What’s this Big Society crap, you are pedalling? I want to live in a small society where I’m not castigated for living a lifestyle that I chose. What I smoke, eat, drink, or anything else is nothing to do with government. My Lifestyle is my choice. Not yours to hector and Nanny.  (There’s a few state funded, so-called charities that can be axed here to save some money).

Why do you fail to see that the biggest gain by terrorists is the fact that they have succeeded in their aim of terror  by ensuring that draconian restrictions are now in force across the land? Detention, restraining orders. Stalin would be so proud of you.

CRB checks. What have these achieved? All they’ve done is stopped people like me from volunteering to help vulnerable groups, due to the fact I prefer the tenet of being innocent and guilt has to be proved. (And no. I’m not a paedophile).

Bye the way when are you going to repeal that Human Rights act you kept banging on about earlier in the year? You’ve gone very quiet on that one.

I could go on, and on, and on……………………………………,and on.

I like many others are losing their patience with your left of centre government, which to me, seems to have the same objective as the last one. just to have power for power’s sake. After all, you’re comfortably off with your millions. Of course you could use some of that to help pay of the national debt of £4.7 Trillion.

Let me tell you this Mr Cameron. There are a lot of like minded people like me that are starting to think that rebellion is called for. It won’t happen soon I believe. But it will. You’d better start brushing the dust off that civil contingencies act that the last lot brought into law. You’re going to need it

What worries me about that last paragraph, is that direct action is usually carried out by the left wingers, and I am advocating the same. Especially as I consider myself to be a Libertarian.

But then desperate times beget desperate measures. Unless the country wakes up from it’s sleepwalk, It is destined for ruin at the hands of a few powerful individuals. This link sums it all up about what we have lost. The loss of Liberty. By Phillip Pullman.

I’ve almost enough piano wire stored in my garage. All I need to do is mark out 650 lamp posts. Anyone know how many there are in Oxford street? Make a change from the Christmas lights.

I despair, as I sit here huddled up hoping that Global warming will hurry up and arrive before I’m arrested for breaking some illiberal EU made, law...

Yours Faithfully

The Filthy Engineer


  1. I fully support each & every point made by the Filthy Engineer ..

    I was always suspicious of you Cameron .. you're way to "smooth", way too "smarmy" .. and you became a definite "Wrong 'un" when you declared yourself the "Heir to Blair" ..

    The United Kingdom needs you & your pinko friends about as much as it needs an outbreak of Ebola ..

    I never thought I'd say this .. but you're fast achieving for yourself the levels of hatred, thus far reserved for Blair & Brown ..

    Please, please just do the honourable thing .. Stand down, fuck-off & give the job to a real Tory .. Because its rapidly becoming ever clearer that you simply aren't up to it ..

  2. Well said Cap'n. My sentiments entirely. We need a leader that has balls. (And I don't mean Ed Balls)

  3. This should go viral as I think the expression is.

  4. Tcheuchter. I'm just writing what everybody deep down knows.

  5. He does seem to be dragging his feet doesn't he?

  6. What we need is a leader who is prepared to fight for his country .. to stand its corner & not just roll over like a soppy bitch on heat & allow the EUSSR to just walk all over us ..

    The sad fact of the matter is, that no such person exists within the current coalition ..

    I've seen earthworms with more backbone ..


    Tobacco is a filthy weed;

    I like it.

    It satisfies no earthly need;

    I like it.

    It makes men spit, it makes men lean,

    It takes the hair right off your bean,

    The worst darned stuff I’ve ever seen.

    I like it.

    Tobacco is a filthy weed,

    I like it.

    That from the devil does proceed;

    I like it.

    It drains your purse, it burns your clothes,

    And it makes a chimney of your nose.

    To smoke it piss-poor judgement shows.

    I like it.

    By Harold A. Covington, 2011

  8. Welcome to the new bosses, same as the old bosses.

    All the good intentions have been dissipated by the civil service. That's what happens, just like in Yes Minister.

    I think DC was full of reforming zeal initially, but he's been beaten down by the system. So, the necessary direct action should be targeted at the Sir Humphreys, not the politicians.

  9. FE,
    Truer words have seldom been written.
    I used to be proud to vote "c"onservative. No longer.
    I am disgusted with the shower now holding power. They do not represent the people who put them into their privileged positions.

    They snout-up sheds of money which is gleefully stolen from us, the PEOPLE while we shiver, trying to make the choice between eating and heating. I'm "only" 63 with still-marketable skills, I cannot find remunerative employment no matter where I seek. So I now undertake day-labouring jobs "on the lump".
    If I was an East European "refugee" I would be able to scam this Govt. for £130,000 in three short years!
    Piano wire and lamp-posts sounds bloody good to me.

  10. you must still have a little faith in your government to feel you can safely utter the comments you do.
    Maybe you are right.
    Maybe you are safe.

  11. I agree completely with your sentiments and your anger. I seem to reading more frequently of late comments along the lines of "There are a lot of like minded people like me that are starting to think that rebellion is called for." It seems to me that all we are waiting for is a leader.

  12. "It seems to me that all we are waiting for is a leader" ...

    Well FFS don't be holding yer breath for some kid to be born in Bethnal Green ..

    Or for some Twat to ride a Donkey into Westminster (cos they're already all in Parliament) ..

  13. They have either fully subscribed to the globalisation goals or they are too cowardly to stand up to globalist threats.

    Either way, they are not the people we need to lead this Country.

  14. Hmmm. so there are a few who feel like me.

  15. Therein lay the irony, or conundrum if you wish - we seek leaders, why? Can we not allow ourselves the consideration that we are quite capable of making judgments about how to run or guide our own country from the grass roots up, instead of from the top down?

    I began expanding on a theme, but it turned into a sad rant. I spent over forty years driving the streets of London, and came to love its complexities of alley ways and streets, and all the history that went with them. During the nineties roads became 'engineered' against traffic and for the pedestrian. Today I re-visit those streets in a Routemaster bus, and see what were ordinary thoroughfares able to take traffic of all kinds, turned into what appear to be tank traps, chicanes and narrows and often no way at all - dead ends. Cameras watch every yard of every street, coppers are now paramilitary with their own lingo and detached attitudes. They watch for unrest amongst thsoe who feel they are in a foreign land - Londoners. Same in every town, we are the enemy, born and bred from our parents seed and womb for generations - cattle, useless eaters to be used abused and discarded . . .

    I could go on, it's all been said before. What's the point. We have leaders - we need none, no Royals, no political parties, we need managers local and national to oversee community services, the building of roads and hospitals, a defence force capable of defending our shores, a Navy capable of defending our coasts and an Air force of the air. Most of all we need a police force that protects the person against ill harm be it from physical or financial. We need an organisation to oversee trade and commerce, and a bank that belongs to the people.

    There would be more, but what we do not need is the existence of Royals, and political parties. The International machine needs dismantling.

    I heard a quote recently which struck me as poignant: "We will be known amongst the Stars, not by our corpses, but by our poems".

    Just another pointless rant after all I guess.

  16. I also agree. I don't like direct action, though. It always ends up with children and grannies sitting in freezing houses with no food.

    In respect of the armed forces; some years ago there was a conservative election poster which depicted a hedgehog with its quills snipped off. The slogan was "Labour's defence policy".

    Then the Conservatives - notably Portillo - performed several quillectomies in the years after the Falklands war to make sure we could never do such a thing again.

    My conclusion is that they don't want an armed force which is capable of defending - i.e. resisting - foreign powers and they don't want armed forces which might take their pledge to the Crown seriously if push ever came to shove.

    The police, that second line of possible resistance, have been thoroughly suborned by other methods over the same years. Their job is to deliver the civilian population, not to protect it.

  17. One of the problem with the armed forces is that they are usually fighting the last war. We are launching Type 45 destroyers for a cold war. What the Navy needs is some cheap and cheerfull vessels to protect our sea lanes from Pirates and their ilk. We've spend a vast amount of money on the Typhoon vanity project when we could have bought F18's from the USA.

    As for the Police.........

  18. FE,

    A great summing up, terrific post.

    Yes there are many who think the same as you, some articulate on blogs as you do, many more discuss such things in the pubs and clubs, the gym and office and all are awaiting the final straw.

    When the time comes, we won't need leaders, once it begins people will just join in.

    Its the aftermath that we must plan for, so start looking for the candidates who will replace those who will be dislodged, those who are willing and strong enough to make the necessary decisions to dismantle this now tyrannical land.

  19. Oh and by the way, and thanks for the link.

    That's the whole point Anon ..

    I no longer feel safe in my own country .. (in who's defence I've spent the majority of my adult life) .. and I most certainly have no faith at all in the clowns who tell us they are running the country ..

    I have no doubt whatsoever that Blogs like this one & others are read in minute detail, records kept, ISP's traced, files updated etc ..

    And that one day, perhaps not too far in the future "the knock" will be received at some ungodly hour ..

    But I would like them to know this .. and to be well aware that if I do go down in a welter of boots, blood & snot .. I'll be taking at least two of them with me ..

    You (whoever you are, wherever you are) have been warned .. Ignore it at your own peril ..

  21. The thing is, how on earth could you have been taken in by those guys last May? It has been clear for a while that cameron was a fraud.

    For example, the greatest scandal during the elections were the 3 "debates". How on earth could have that been allowed? As we are allowed only those 3 parties in the UK! But it happened, and I do not remember much protest. So I am afraid that you are going to wait for your revolution for a while. Just look at all those idiots who still went out on Saturday in 2 wheel drive car with no snow tyres, knowing that snow was coming, and then bleating about how they were stuck.

    How many millions do you think will watch or line the streets for the wedding of some guy they don't know with a girl they don't know either?

    The country has been dumbed down past the tipping point I fear.
