Let’s Put Dave The Taxman On The Dole

Who is this pompous, conceited, arrogant, Boris Johnson lookalike?

He’s Dave Hartnett, Permanent Secretary at Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs. He’s refusing to apologise for getting tax deductions wrong for six million British taxpayers.

Just who the hell does he think he is?   We’re back to Sir Humphrey and lazy, fatcat incompetence and corruption again.  You’d think the civil service would have managed to drag itself entirely out of the 19th century by now wouldn’t you?  Not this prize plonker.  Maybe because his overgrown schoolboy, pudding basin haircut is just as messy as Boris’ he thinks he’ll endear himself to the British public?  Hogwash.  He’s the very opposite of Boris.  He represents everything that’s bad about Britain – self-satisfied, smug, deluded, living in the past.

I say let’s get him sacked.  Let’s create the biggest outcry against a useless civil sevant that the country has ever seen.  Let’s lose Mr Hartnett his job.  Let’s put him in his place – in the queue at the Jobcentre.  Then we’ll see who’s a cocky, scruffy, little git won’t we?

Barack & Hillary – You’re Out Of Line!

America’s interference  in the Scottish Justice Minister’s decision on the fate of the so-called Lockerbie Bomber, is uncalled for, inappropriate, tactless, rude, arrogant and just plain wrong.

Whatever your views on the value of mercy towards a man who has only a matter of days or weeks to live and who is very probably innocent of the crime he was convicted of, it is no business of the United States to be interfering like this.

We already kowtow to the Americans far too much.  Our blind obedience into Iraq and Afghanistan.  Our willingness to bow to their demands for the extradition of Gary Mckinnon, a harmless, mentally abnormal individual who is being bullied and persecuted by a country for who the title “the Great Satan” seems increasingly justified.

You, who are responsible for so much state-sanctioned terrorism and bullying, have no business meddling like this in the affairs of Scotland or the UK.
