Andrew Mitchell: Welcome to the real world!

Shock Horror…..” Man gets stiched up by the establishment”

This Andrew Mitchell saga is a joke. The UK government is failing it’s citizens left right and centre, Leveson, closure of Remploy,  removal of benefits from vulnerable people, failing to provide a future for the young….and what do we get in the papers:-

Such shock at a white middle aged man getting into bother with the cops.

…and of course, the kerfuffle over gay marriage..

I think in management speak they call this “goal displacement”. When you don’t have the skills or abilities to actually complete the proper tasks required so you fiddle about on the side doing all the wee jobs that don’t really matter.

And this criticism applies to government and the media. They are both guilty of an unhealthy obsession with their own “machinery” to the detriment of the wider wellbeing of the UK.

I find myself more an more reading online versions of international media to get an idea of what’s happening in the UK.

Going back to the column inches covering the Mitchell saga. Where is the coverage of this guy’s death over 20 years ago. now that’s what I call getting on the “wrong side of the law”

And the whole system now seems to be designed to have enquiry after enquiry at costs of usually £5million a year. (Iraq Enquiry is my base for this)http://www.iraqinquiry.org.uk/news/20110721-costs.aspx

Up to a staggering £191 million for the Bloody Sunday Enquiry

And if he thinks he’s been hard done by; What about the football families that have been living with the Hillsborough disaster for 23 years..

…or this poor lady who has been threatened with deportation, won her appeal, and now Theresa May is appealing again to try and toss her out the country and send her to a slow death:-
