Meet the new Boss? ...same as the old boss

With all this talk of elections, we thought we'd muse for a minute on that bloke Dave Cameron's speech the other day (let's not forget these are the new Green Tories, and good old Dave has got a wind turbine on his roof - as did one local pipsqueak/councillor at one time). Take this sample...

So, his mother dealt with "the likes of Swampy" did she? It's easy to mock people who are (seemingly) not as strong, but it's also better to choose those who were the least effective - Direct Action stopped the Tories road building programme dead in it's tracks in the 1990s, and it will do the same with Labour's - or even the Tories if they have their jackboot on our necks again in a few weeks time. We too "fight for what we believe in and the changes we want to make" despite "the likes of you". Bring it on Dave...

And as an antidote to all that guff, here's a rejoinder to this Toff's mocking tones from good old Dan Hooper himself...

In my opinion it needs someone more revolutionary to tackle green issues. David Cameron has done a better job at making people more enviromentally aware than other leaders of any other political party including his predecessors, but what he is proposing isn't good enough.

I actually beleive in fortnightly bin collections - heck I even think I could cope on a monthly collection. Why? Because I get off my lazy arse and recycle properly, but telling people that isn't a vote winner.

I don't believe in having a nanny state or all this mass of political correctness, but more should be done to encourage a greener lifestyle for the better of the planet.
