The ‘contest’ between the policies of the Tories, LibDems and NewLabour remind me very much of the televised ‘wrestling’ that used to be broadcast on Saturday afternoons.
Remember how the old ladies would get their knickers in a spin as the villain (often Mick McManus) would take advantage of the good-guy’s sportsmanship to turn a sporting handshake into an attack on the hero (typically Jackie Pallo).
Then the villain would strut around the stage while the old ladies were screaming to the hero to recover, which he would, and then turn the tables – all to get their supporters mindlessly baying.
And was it fixed?
“…crowds argued about whether wrestling bouts were staged or not. “Of course it was, it was pure showbiz right from the start,” Pallo said in his book.”
Currently the LibLabCon are making an EU tag-team effort
- the LibDems won’t let Tories revoke the (back to the stone-age) Green-carbon rubbish;
- NuLabour puff to their supporters about an unworkable 1960′s-style Marxist price-freeze, but won’t push for pricing transparency from wholesale through to retail;
- all of them are going to make fracking as expensive as possible to ensure the continuance of EU energy policy.
Whatever they might say, what the LibLabCon do is support the EU because the more unproductive but highly rewarded political jobs there are available to them then the better they like it.
And this is governance. Not.
