Election night thoughts ... (Good riddance, Labour?)

This guy may be a Labour candidate, but if I lived in the community he hopes to represent, I'd vote for him.
This is what parliamentarian hopeful Manish Soon had to say about Gordon Brown on his webpage:
"Immigration has gone up which is creating friction within communities. The country is getting bigger and messier. The role of ministers has gone bureaucratic and the action of ministers has gone downhill—it is corrupt. I believe Gordon Brown has been the worst prime minister we have had in this country. It is a disgrace and he owes an apology to the people and the Queen."
Now, not even I think Mr. Brown should have to apologize to Her Majesty (the Queen, in recent years, seems to have only just herself realized her duty to the people), but he certainly owes every member of the voting public an apology.
Whatever happens as a result of tonight's election, whatever type of country we wake up to tomorrow, can I just say that Labour could badly do with more MPs of your ilk, Mr. Sood.
At London's Methodist Central Hall earlier this week, Gordon Brown was moved at the sight of 14-year-old Tiara Sanchez crying as she delivered a personal testimony to him. When the Prime Minister asked her what was wrong, she responded that her family, who work as cleaners, are condemned to a life of poverty. Brown responded in a most heartfelt manner that she, and other poor, struggling families, could count on him to be a "friend" and a "brother."
Oh, please! This is politricking at its best—or do I mean worst? Brown is trying to save his own skin. We saw the real Gordon Brown last week when he called a hard-working 65-year-old woman a bigot, during what he thought was a private conversation with his staff, because she dared to voice her concern over the flood of immigrants swallowing up the country's resources.
This girl and her family are finding it hard to make ends meet, Mr. Brown, because you've budgeted millions worth of government money to meet the greedy, utopian and, more than anything else, anti-British demands of the European Union. Hardly a red cent you've provided for loyal British troops, to ensure the health of the British armed forces and the U.K.'s commitment to NATO.
You've also doled out plenty from the state coffers on multi-culti programs, and toward bailing out the banks, only you didn't give the banks millions; you gave them billions.
Funny how a family named Sanchez doesn't seem to have benefitted much from the diversity-praising society you've created. Not to mention all the money you've allocated toward child benefits. People should have families based on their own budgets, not the government's.
Well, as I've already noted, at least no-one can accuse you of spending too much on defense.
Nightdragon endorses David Cameron and the Conservative Party for tonight's general election. I don't feel particularly glad that fox-hunting enthusiasts may return to power, but there are other issues that badly need sorting out in order to promise the nation some sort of future. If the Tories would simply follow Ann Widdecombe's example, they'd be perfect—something they're currently not. But they're the best choice for the next five years.

Labour have done some good things like introduce a minimum wage and enable same sex couples to have a legally recognised relationship by introducing civil partnerships. And they did eventually keep their promise to outlaw cruel fox hunting. But they've also done some really stupid things like wasting billions on the ID cards scheme and signing up to the EU constitution without a referendum. They made promises they failed to keep like bringing in another public holiday - hardly a big ask and we do have fewer than any European country but Romania. They've increased immigration on the sly while also initiating knee jerk new rules on citizenship to soothe Daily Mail readers, like the ridiculous 'probationary citizenship' they are bringing in that immigrants who only want permanent residency will be forced to go through. They are also going to make immigrants pass English language tests before they are allowed to come. Fair enough if you're coming to work or study, but for spouses it's injust to say husbands and wives can't live together because one doesn't speak English. As long as they don't want public funds and are willing to learn English once here that should be enough. Oh and that lady was a bigot really to single out Eastern Europeans who took advantage of the free movement allowed by membership of the EU.

Good luck on your elections. Maybe you can start to right the ship there across the pond. Unfortianatly here in the states were quickly headed your way on the road to socialism.

P.S. I love how the Brits spell Labour, we dropped the u long ago, just in too much of a hurry I guess.

I kinda like it spelled "Labour" too, it's a bit exotic. I'm just so used to seeing it now that "Labor" looks misspelled, though I agree with American spelling rules that dropped the superfluous "u." The British wanted words ending in the Latin "-or" to look French, but Americans returned the words to their Latin format. (The Aussies spell it as Labor too, incidentally.)
