Labour the party of broken promises

April 25, 2009

Despite numerous promises and prominent European leaders stating that the treaty that Gormless Gordon and his chums have signed us up to being essentially the same as what Gormless promised us a referendum on I thought I would contact my MP. Mr Chris Bryant, below is my letter and below that his reply. The sooner this morally inept bunch are out of power the better.

Dear Chris Bryant,

As My Mp I would like to know your stance on the failed promise of the
Labour Government to give the people of the United Kingdom a referendum
on Europe. I wonder on your stance when Labour MP Alice Mahon stated
that part of the reason for her resignation was the governments failure
to live up to it’s promise under the election manifesto.

As I remember all major parties agreed that they would hold a
referendum on something so momentous for everyone in Britain yet we are
refused access to this.

I would also like to point out that as people are getting more and more
frustrated by the Labour establishments failure to deliver on it’s
promises that this may well be a deciding factor in upcoming elections.

The Government keeps telling us that this is nothing like the EU
constitution but other European Leaders have said that this is so. Why
is the Labour party so afraid of giving it’s electorate the chance to
make it’s own mind up

I eagerly await your reply.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Griffiths.

Dear Richard
I’m afraid I disagree with you – and I do not believe we should be
having a referendum, a point I have made for several years now.  I do
not believe that referendums are a proper way of consulting the public
as they undermine the democratic parliamentary process. I know it seems
like nit-picking but our commitment was to a referendum on the
Constitutional Treaty.  This was rejected by two countries and is
therefore no longer being considered.  The rather different Lisbon
Treaty is now before us and I think it is a good deal for Britain.  We
never held referendums on the Maastricht, Amsterdam or Nice Treaties and
I think one would be inappropriate now.
I am sorry to disappoint you yet further.
Yours truly, Chris

Britains Shame

April 25, 2009

Speak to any either serving or former soldier and ask what a Gurkha is.

“They are the epitiome of honour and courage, men who are willing to lay down their lives for their comrades and too often for a country not their own”

Well the Labour government brought shame once again to Britain yesterday with the despicable ruling on the Gurkha’s. At a time when so many migrants that come here come here just for the benefits that they get so easily, we turn our back on men that have fought and been wounded in service to this country.

Any man who pulls on this countrys uniform should be entitled if they so wish to call themselves British. I have always been proud of my country until now.

Cymru Con

March 28, 2009

As I am sure most of you have heard Cymru Con Had to be cancelled this year. It was a combination of many factors, I’d like to just blame the economic crisis but that was the tip of the iceberg. My family is also under a lot of stress with my mother undergoing her radiotherapy. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Iz and Dan for their tireless support and unmatched enthusiasm. I’d also like to thank those people who had committed the artists and writers that make all us comic fans turn up at conventions and lastly and by no means least I’d like to thank all the fans that were going to turn up

Cla$$war Volume One

March 28, 2009

I’ve heard so much about Classwar, and it’s written by someone who used to shop in the same comic store I do. So when I heard that it was being collected, I placed an order. I have to say if you haven’t read Cla$$war then order it quick. Do you remember how good the Ultimates volume one was. Yeah you heard me before they tumbled down the track and it became the car crash that ended with Mr Loeb. Well Cla$$war is as good if not better than that. It had me engrossed from cover to cover and I can’t wait for volume two. Keep up the good work Rob

Watching the Watchman

March 1, 2009

Well I’m probably gonna get lots of flack for this but I was so excited waiting for this to come out. Then reality set in and I watched it expecting the mother of all movies. I am so sorry that i went back on my word to wait for the DVD. I have to say thank you to my friend Dan for getting me tickets to go and watch it in London yesterday, it did add something I suppose to sit in a cinema drinking champagne but that was really the highlight of the film.

Well perhaps i should have tried harder to understand the graphic novel as i left the cinema feeling distinctly underwhelmed. Highlights Jackie Earle Hadley as Rorschach, fantastic portrayal. Jeffrey Dean Morgan as the Comedian was also inspired casting.

Downsides too many to mention, the most laughable sex scene since Sharon Stone graced our screens.  Ozymandias was dire and  Billy Crudrup as Doctor Manhattan should now get a job advertising jumbo sized Trojans if that wasn’t a prosthetic. If you’ve read the graphic novel he looks like a greek statue (and if you’ve seen the nude greek statues you know what I mean)

I have to be fair though I will watch it and buy it on DVD but really not impressed. It’s almost like it tries too hard then fails on most counts
