What McCarthy is too blind to see, is that Team GB's success at the Olympics virtually GUARANTEES David Cameron, and his Tory party, success at the next General Election. McCarthy and her Labour cronies should be doing everything they can to distance themselves from the Olympics, and should be criticising EVERYTHING, from the BBC's biased coverage to the Royal/Tory hi-jack. Even Labour stalwart Billy Bragg has completely missed Morrissey's point, as he tweeted yesterday suggesting Morrissey was hypocritical because he waved the Union flag in the 90's. Oh Billy!
McCarthy's comments were attacked on twitter, with '@NomisReeb' asking, "And what exactly do you know about Morrissey?" McCarthy replied, "Well, I'm mates with Gary Day for a start. Saw the Smiths in their day." So, McCarthy KNOWS all about Morrissey and where he lives, because she is mates with a bass guitarist who Moz probably hasn't spoken to in years, and because she saw The Smiths! WE, the British public elected the likes of Kerry McCarthy, it is all our own fault, or at least the fault of the 16,471 idiots of Bristol East who voted for her. Mind you, the only other serious opposition to McCarthy in the 2010 election was Adeela Shafi, a Tory candidate who came to the election £330,000 in debt, and with her home repossessed. There was no hope for the people of Bristol East, and I would probably have given McCarthy my vote, on the basis of her having seen The Smiths!
KERRY McCARTHY - KNOWS WHERE MORRISSEY LIVES
ADEELA SHAFI - THE BALIFF KNEW WHERE SHE LIVED.
Cameron has already been savvy enough to use the Team GB success at the Olympics to his advantage, and he has shot a warning across the Lib-Dems bow, by kicking out their motion for a reform of the House of Lords. A reform of the Lords was one of Cameron's major promises to Nicholas Clegg when the two parties formed a coalition. Cameron has now left Clegg looking weak and stupid, sorry, weaker and stupider. Surely it is only a matter of time before Cameron announces that the Tories can no longer work with the inept Lib-Dems, and calls a General Election, with the Olympic success as the centre point to the Tory campaign.
NICHOLAS CLEGG - SOON TO BE LOOKING FOR SOMEWHERE NEW TO LIVE?
It's not all plain sailing for Cameron though, because Corby MP Louise Mensch (who incidentally '@MorrisseysWorld' is always attacking on twitter), has announced that she is stepping down, to concentrate on being with her family. Mensche, just like McCarthy and Shafi, is one of a vile new breed of politician, who seem to be in politics just for the ego boost of winning votes, and NOTHING else. Mensche is a 'chick lit' author, who has been an MP for just two years. She obviously had NO intention of serving a full term in office, and just enjoyed the 'look at me, I'm famous' platform that being an MP gave her. It is a great waste of tax payers money to have a by-election, but of course Ms Mensche won't give a stuff about that.
The by-election is due to be held in November, and as it is a marginal seat, it will act as a useful gauge for Cameron, to see if the public mood is lifted by the Olympic jingoism. If the Tories win, a General Election will be iminent, but having said that, the British public usually use by-elections to send out a message to the existing Government that they aren't happy, and surely the residents of Corby CAN'T be happy, no matter HOW many gold medals Zara Phillips wins?
LOIUSE MENSCH RECLINES ON A BED - IN A BLUE ROSE DRESS! GO, GO, GO, WE DON'T NEED YOU, JUST GO - MOVING TO NEW YORK.
ROTTEN & TWITTER QUEEN MENSCH ON QUESTION TIME
As promised, 'Our Mozzer' has posted the first part of his new article, entitled 'An Essay on Loneliness in the 20th Century.' It is a thought provoking piece, in which 'Our Mozzer' points out that "television is what we do, our actual lives are relegated to a sideshow." How VERY true, and how VERY sad, but virtually ALL of us have allowed this to happen. The easiest option is to not think too much about it, in the same way that the easiest way to make up for the disappointment of having NO decent politicians to vote for, is to quietly NOT vote, or vote for a Smiths fan. Life is a Pigsty, and if you don't know this, then what do you know?
So as Louise Mensch's parliamentary light goes out, could there be ANY possibility that the reason 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out' was pulled from the opening ceremony of the Olympics, is because it is going to be used at the CLOSING ceremony instead? Surely not, not after all Moz's criticism, but you wouldn't bet against it. Oh the irony.
