Blair abolishes elections
"We cannot risk changing course now", Tony Blair said today, as the government published proposals to cancel parliamentary elections. . .
Mr Blair said that the police had advised him that elections would be dangerous. "They would divert attention from the war on terror", he said. "If the public chose a new government, that would be a victory for terrorism. We must not take that chance. Holding elections would be contrary to the strong advice given to us by our security services and our police, and I am simply not prepared to do it."
Don't believe this? Neither do I but it's a damn good spoof on Blair and a good two fingers up to the hand shandyists who support him. Get over there now before someone orders it taken down.
