I’ve noticed an interesting change in opinion on the Libertarian Blogosphere lately, and for that matter the populace in general. Around the time of the election the thinking was, that maybe there was hope for change and we could forget about expensesgate because we would have a government that would listen to the citizens.
At first all was well, as most people will give the benefit of doubt to a newly elected Government. This attitude has now changed as bloggers see that this government is no better than the last, and in some cases equally as useless.
It’s begun to dawn on so many people, that most politicians are only in it for the money and prestige, and couldn’t give a fuck about what the man in the street thinks or wants. Why do they not realise why voter participation is falling by the year?
What interested me last weekend, whilst I was staying at my Brother in law’s house, was how attitudes are changing in the general public.

Today they read the Torygraph and question that paper’s credentials as being too weak and unquestioning.
But I’d better get back to the point of this post. I’m seeing a swing in the Blogosphere away from let’s unelect them to actually having them swing from lampposts. If the blogosphere is representative of at least a small number of the populace, then there are interesting times ahead. It takes a while for the average man in the street to get riled, especially when they are subjected to the insidious output from the Brainwashing Broadcasting Corporation, but the penny will finally drop.
It amazes me how shallow our
wankers betters, in the Westminster bubble, both politicians and media are more obsessed with attacking News International, than the slightly more important subject of a global financial melt down which could come our way in the very near future. It must be a very opaque bubble indeed.
Why don’t they realise that they will bankrupt us with utterly stupid and ruinously expensive green energy policy? Adding more to the household bills of those who can least afford it.
Why don’t they realise that their attack on civil liberties such as the smoking ban is now fostering a smouldering hatred of those who voted for it, without thought of the consequences?
My prediction is, that in time, when the true scale of the situation becomes apparent (And it may be measured in months or years) there will be a revolution against how this country is run and it won’t be pretty. The people of this nation have been slow to anger through the ages but when they have……………………….
