Proud of Britain

So, the Government has set up a website for people who are proud of Britain. It's got a feedback form. Of course, they reserve the right to delete anything that's not entirely pro-lying-fascist, but I thought I might as well give it a go. For reference, I might as well include the note I sent because there's not a hope in Hell that it will ever be displayed. Look, no swearing!

I am proud of Britain, because despite this government's track record of lying, of wasting money, of using the bogeyman of "terrorism" as a means to control the populace, and of using "security" as a blanket excuse to strip away every civil liberty the British populace have, they have not yet stooped as low as their neo-conservative American counterparts and placed a simian halfwit in control. Better a smiling liar than a brain-dead chimpanzee, after all.

I am proud that there is a chance that I might get back the country I remember, the country I love. A country where I do not need to carry a papers to verify who I am, in direct breach of my right to privacy. A country where the rich are not given tax incentives to get richer and the poor are not forced to get poorer, giving their only income back to the rich. A country where the populace is trusted to go to the toilet in the morning or to have a pint in the pub on an evening without the Government telling them how much they should drink and how much toilet paper they should use.

I am proud that we still have a chance to vote out this Labour government, and to elect a party that will not strip away our every human right and then sell them back to us as just another tax.


So, other Brits: Join in. Let's have a bit of a laugh at the expense of the Party in Government before the very act of doing so gets us clapped in irons and hanged by the neck without charge nor trial.

After you get back the country you love, please come fix my country. It may just be my American arrogance at work, but I think we are even more deeply and brutally fucked than you guys.


Oh, btw, I added you because your journal entertains me. I'm Nathan.
