Hatchet Job

follow go site Watching the last Prime Ministers debate before the 2010 General Election, and the polls afterwards, I can’t get it out of my mind that there is a hatchet job swinging menacingly over Gordon Brown’s head.

http://bigbowlofpho.com/?thread=asking-rhetorical-questions-in-essays-are-poems One by one newspapers and red-top rags like the Sun denounce him as not fit to govern. Yet they’re quite happy to champion the Tory’s under the Eton toff, Cameron and Clegg, the luckiest Liberal leader for decades.

http://ceaiverde.net/?x=cobayes-livre-critique-essay The news today is that the Times as come out in favour of the Tory’s and the Guardian as thrown its weight behind the Liberals.

women and society essays on poverty Time and time again, the propaganda that lands heavily on Gordon Brown’s shoulder’s, becomes more and more unpalatable. One wonders when people will turn towards Brown out of shear sympathy and support for the underdog.

get link This Labour government has given us the minimum wage, it’s brought in support for families with children in the form of tax credits, it’s given pensioners a credit too, it’s opened over 3,500 Sure Start centres to help children and families get the best start in life, it’s built hospitals and schools, and yet people can’t seem to support it. They’ve never had it so good!

watch It also gave us the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts which have been divisive. Could these conflicts have been avoided? The Afghan war began because of 9/11 and the support that the Taliban government gave al Qaeda. Our support for the American’s was unwavering. As was other country’s.

top ten essayists Iraq was different and a war that in many ways was a chosen war. Saddam Hussein had reneged on many UN resolutions. The country had massacred hundreds of thousands of its own citizen’s.

fifth business comparative essay example It’s up to you to decide whether these wars were worth, first of all, the lives of British service personnel and then the money spent.

essays persuasive topics for elementary In recent years, and these seem to be the battering rams with which the press are using, there was the economy and expenses debacle.

the story of an hour setting essay First, the economic downturn. Its Labour’s fault! It all happened on there watch. In my view that’s a complete miss-reading of the situation. This downturn began in American and travelled like a virus through the worlds financial markets. Britain was not immune. London is the financial hub of the world. Then, the government were blamed for saving the banks. The Tory’s opposed the saving of Northern Rock.

http://checkordering.net/?thread=ib-memes-extended-essay-example Just think for one minute. If the government hadn’t saved the banks as it did, where would you get your money from? You’re employer has his money in those same banks. There’s no money there. He can’t pay you. He’s no cash. If you can’t get access to your cash, how do you pay your bills? You can’t. Eviction is the logical conclusion.

This government did the only thing it could. It saved the financial system in this country. And it was opposed all the way by the opposition party. The one you’re thinking of voting for.

What about the MP’s expenses? That was the governments fault, surely? Well, no it wasn’t. The executive doesn’t run parliament. It run itself, for good or as it turned out, for worse. MP’s and Lord’s have been proved to be claiming monies they shouldn’t have been claiming for.

This expenses fiasco was not confined to the Labour Party and was not defined by the government, except to say it has moved quickly to set up an independent body that will scrutinise parliament and expenses.

And so the hatchet falls on Brown’s head regardless of his performance as leader of the party, despite his handling of the two defining moments of his premiership, and forgetting completely that the Tory’s will hammer the poor and give to the rich, and that a party that wants to give an amnesty to illegal immigrants – the Liberals – will hold the keys to give to whoever it wants to 10 Downing Street.

Remember, you can vote for whoever you wish. That’s what living in a democracy allows. But also think carefully about the future and what you want it to look like. Will it be one for the haves or the have-nots? You decide. But most of all! Don’t waste your vote.
