Gordon Brown that I posted in this blog was the second letter I sent to him, and having received a reply to the first a couple of weeks later, from him, or more likely his secretary's secretary, I expected another this time.
Maybe it was the fact that the election was taking up his time and he, or his secretary never had time to act on it, but whatever reason, I never got a reply this time, and as he has just taken the steps I suggested in the said letter, by packing his bags and leaving number ten Downing Street, resigning his post as leader of the Labour party and Prime Minister of Britain, I am beginning to think he at least read it.
The first letter I composed to him was inflamed by the elimination of the ten pence tax rate, and other prominent moves that would make the poor of this country poorer, and the rich richer (more of a Tory policy) or basically getting the poorest of the taxpayers to bail the country out of it's crisis rather than the more well off.
Refusal to tighten the country's expenditure while forcing US to tighten our belts, going ahead with the costly ID cards, and replacing our nuclear weapons system at a cost of billions of pounds was also mentioned in the letter (although seemingly we can still afford that, regardless of which party gets in or how much more debt it puts us in) to which each subject was touched on, albeit lightly, but not to my satisfaction.
He did reimburse the lost money from the tax rate for that year, but only for that year, never reinstating it, and whether my letter had anything to do with it or not, I will never really know, as most of the country was up in arms over it, but I would like to think I had played my part.
As for the other subjects, he stubbornly stood by HIS beliefs, a fact that led to his downfall, one of the many other issues I warned him in my letter that would lead to his eviction from Downing Street, a fault, I pointed out to him, other Prime Ministers before him had also made.
It is all very well being stubborn in your beliefs, as long as it is in agreement with the electorate, but as we all know the biggest mistake politicians make is ignoring the people who put them there, and regardless of which party they represent, when they do this they are rejected.
It wasn't very difficult predicting the demise of Brown with all the blunders he and his party made, the problem we face now is that none of the present candidates are much better, that is why we have a hung parliament, NOT because we were disillusioned with any one party, but because we are disillusioned with them all.
Labour turning more Conservative, conservatives turning any way they could as long as it was to try and get away from the Labour policies, which meant no solid manifesto, and the Lib-Dems coming up with ideas that both the other two parties tried to cash in on was also a contributory factor.
We have a hung parliament because, not one of the parties installed enough faith in the public to give any of them a clear victory, and until one of them comes up with a sure and definite solution to the financial problems we now face, without it costing "US" the taxpayer who bailed out the banks too much deprivation, then we will be no further forward.
We the public, should never have been put in this position in the first place, and we should not be expected to use our hard earned cash to bail out the cities of the world, AGAIN!
Its time the banks took some responsibility, and paid back some of the money LOANED to them by US, from the profits they are now making, which would ease the burden on the public, a burden that they caused in the first place.
ALL PARTIES TAKE NOTE!
One consolation that has come out of all this is the end of Peter Mandelson's influence on the Prime Minister's decisions, another reason for Brown's downfall, as by introducing this arrogant clown into politics for a third dismal spell was no better than putting the noose around his own neck.
As I have asked before, where did all the money disappear to in the first place?
One year the banks were making big profits, the next, the world banking system goes into meltdown and all the money in the world vanishes, EXCEPT, THAT IS, all this money that is suddenly appearing to reimburse the world funds.
If every country was hit by the banking crisis, and all countries are in debt to the tune of BILLIONS, where did the trillions come from that we have all borrowed, and to whom are we paying these loans to, plus interest of course.
There is a lot more to this than meets the eye, trillions do not just disappear, and reappear into new and mysterious hands overnight, and as David Cameron takes over as the new Prime Minister (with the help of Nick Clegg's Lib-Dems) that is the answer I am more interested in at the moment, rather than who is going to lead us through the mess left by these mysterious hands.
WHO may I ask is in the position, or is willing to answer that question?
