Is it possible to suspend my membership of the human race for ten years?

I just cannot stand the thought of ten years of that complete pillock David Cameron. All you need to know about him is that he was a public relations guru for one of the worst, most soulless television stations in the history of British broadcasting.

David Cameron set out plans to radically reform the British political system in a speech at the Open University.
He said the current political crisis highlighted the need for "sweeping reform" and stressed that "a bit of technocratic tinkering here, a bit of constitutional consultation there" would not be sufficient.

Oh go and stick your head down a toilet, Cameron.

A massive, sweeping, radical redistribution of power.

Round spherical objects! David Cameron wouldn't recognise a redistribution power if someone redirected the national grid down his left nostril.

So measure number one?

David Cameron will "seriously consider" fixed term parliaments. Oh FFS. In other words he will "seriously consider" it to get into power and find one hundred and one reasons not to implement it once in power, due to it being one of the most powerful and intoxicating powers a Prime Minister has. Anything less than a commitment to fixed term parliaments now is worse than worthless. It's an insult to the intelligence of the electorate.

"More elected mayors". Round spherical objects. That actually coalesces power in one person, it doesn't distribute it.

"More local control over schools". Ah yes, the old Tory policy.

"He pledged to cut the number of MPs" Which distributes precisely which powers to the public? Come on! Divulge yourself! (The answer is actually zip - de nada). It'll save money, probably save time, but let's not kid ourselves that it puts power into the hands of the public any less or more.

"We're going to empower local councils by cutting right back on all the interference and instructions from central government - the rules and restrictions, the targets and inspections."
Ah! The leopard changes its spots. Disregard the Tory track record 1979-1997.

Bill by bill. Clause by clause. Line by line.
Every piece of legislation would be put under intense scrutiny.
Is it legally sound? Will it be effective? Is it worth the cost?

Well that all goes on at the moment but then unfortunately Labour have such a fantastic majority based on such a paltry percentage of the vote that the bill goes through regardless. Of course, this couldn't possibly be an argument for a fairer voting system could it Camster? Perish the thought!

Proportional representation takes power away from the man and woman in the street and hands it to the political elites.

What utter cobblers! It means that peoples' vote actually means something! Original eh?

And since the advent of the Human Rights Act, judges are increasingly making our laws.

I am sorry. I can't take any more of this.
