A Stab in the Back

I see in yesterday's Daily Telegraph that Andrew Pierce wrote "Cabinet ministers are being subjected to so much abuse in the street ....." that they have talked informally about extending security cover to all ministers. They are afraid to go out in public, where they may have to cope with "an abusive drunk " or "slow hand clapping", without personal body guards. Well, we thought that a few weeks ago when we saw Harriet Harmless venturing out on to the streets of Peckham wearing a protective vest and surrounded by police protection officers.
How do they think the rest of us feel ?? It's a fine mess they have got us into and their solution is that we can pay more in taxes towards their personal safety! It rather reminds me of Tony Blair telling us that we will 'not let terroists change the way we live' as he built a concrete crash barrier around the Houses of Parliament and ordered himself a bullet and bomb proof car.

It is a bit of a cheek to say the least, to worry about themselves & have to have body guards that we pay for and we just have to take pot luck with our safety. They are not of the real world!

Oh you are sooo right when you say about B liar: "we will 'not let terroists change the way we live' as he built a concrete crash barrier around the Houses of Parliament and ordered himself a bullet and bomb proof car"

Politics always seems to attract the WRONG people - they are so often self seeking egotists who are more concerned with feathering their own nest than caring for the country. It makes me despair.

I read in the Sunday Times at the weekend that Cherie B liar kept her limo and driver for 6 months after her husband left office at a cost of £25k to the tax payer. How can this be allowed to happen? It makes my blood boil!
