Do shut up Cameron you self absorbed prat

As the ‘Heir to Blair’ it comes as no surprise that David Cameron wraps himself in pathetic soundbite politics.  Like Blair, Cameron is also fundamentally dishonest. Today we are provided with another of those ‘Oh piss off’ moments.

We learn that Cameron’s speech to the What’s-left-of-the-Conservative-Party Spring Forum will see him vowing to fight the “enemies of enterprise”. It appears that:

The Prime Minister will tell the Conservatives’ spring forum he wants to make it easier for people to start their own business and will get rid of some of the rules and regulations that stand in the way.

Get rid of rules and regulations eh?  What, the ones that are dreamed up in Brussels and made law here?  You know, laws and regulations that before the election Cameron promised to repatriate from the EU, then after the election his government added to by rubber stamping a raft of EU measures and opting in to others. My bullshit-o-meter is already red lining.  Apparently:

Among his proposals is a plan to encourage government departments to award more contracts to small and medium-sized firms.

He will accuse Labour of smothering the life out of business and say he has an “almighty job to do” fighting against bureaucrats and their “ridiculous rules” and town hall officials who “take forever” making planning decisions.

Labour did what the Conservatives are doing, bowing before the altar of the EU to impose every wheeze the bureaucrats can come up with as quickly as possible.

As any small or medium size businessman will tell you, just try being considered for a government contract.  Just put yourself forward for the assault course of jumping through hoops, agreeing to abide by irrelevant compliance commitments on things such as diversity and sustainability, and having every aspect of your activity pored over by faceless officials who will determine if you are worthy enough to participate in such state generosity.  While trying to satisfy all these pre-requisities, how do they have time to run their business?

To cap off his stupidity, Cameron will say:

“There is no shortage of enterprise in this country,” he will tell delegates in Cardiff.

“I see it in the ideas and energy of all the entrepreneurs I meet – British people selling curries to India and fashion to France.

“The enterprise culture is alive and well. Now, we just need an enterprise government to go with it,” he will add.

The entrepreneurs who are doing this have done it despite the government, not because of it.  Government has made it harder for them, not easier.  What they need is government to stop meddling and stay out of their business.  What Cameron is proposing is more government activity, rather than less.  You cannot have more government activity without more bureaucracy – and you cannot have more bureacuracy without ever increasing regulation, monitoring and intrusion.

If Cameron wants to fight the ‘enemies of enterprise’ he can start by punching himself in the mouth.  If nothing else it might give us some respite from him for a while.

    Provided he talks as told, he remains on the gravy train. He cares not about the people – none of them do, it’s all self:

    You might want to shrink the frame and ‘up’ the text some, it’s small point.

    Well, just for a start, he could stop his Civil Servants and the Quangos from gold plating everything that comes out of Brussels. The HSE and the EA are probably the worst of the lot.

    Whilst the Kermits happily sign up to everything, confident that all the new EU Regulations can just be ignored, here in the UK we are not content until we add on all manner of gold knobs, bells and whistles than not even the European Commission dreamt up. And then zealously enforce it all.

    How they must smile in France, Italy, Spain, Greece!

    Bonfire of the Quangos? My arse.

    Well said AM.

    If Cameron can’t bring himself to punch himself in the mouth I’m more than happy to help out.

    I never realised just how much I could actually despise someone until he came along.

    Bloody hell, we get shut of one lot of a*****les to get some even worse. And Martin is quite correct our own government, pause for laughter, is the problem, led buy the chief idiot. “Will no one rid us of this terminally stupid man” to paraphrase a better writer than I will ever be

    Are some still listening to this fimicolous fantasist?
    What loathsome & dangerous jellyfish our leaders are!

    When I heard about this piss take of a speech this morning, I thought to myself: “this is so Bliar-like”.

    This foppish dork, old Etonian/bully boy, is such a twat.

    Recently, he disappeared down the shithole, he incredibly became even more stupid [ yeah – not possible really]!!

    I don’t want an in or out referendum because……. “My bread is buttered in Bruxelles – where I eat my cake!”
    And, “I don’t believe in allowing the people to have a say – there so not capable of having a say!”

    A man who surrounds himself with gimps like, the calibre of Hammond, boy George and Letwin…..

    Foxtrot Oscar Cameron, you dog’s pussy.

    Cut him in half and the writing would be, Made in Socialist People’s Republics of the EU.

    Am urging one and all to viral this post. The man is so wet that he drips. A capon, pointlessly clucking.

    Cameron’s Cast Iron Promise showed that he’s deceitful and thinks he can treat everyone as having a 3 minute attention span. He is fixed on being PM but since he has no principles he doesn’t know what to do now he is PM, apart from stay PM.

    I take this latest as a bit of nonsense for the party faithful. It’s what they want to hear, but he hasn’t thought about the practicalities because he has no intention of following up. It’s just words he knows some people like to hear.

    As for the gold plating. That just shows that UK officials are the most dedicated to the EU cause; they really believe in this stuff and it would take some rooting out. I foresee a future where the EU collapses and the UK continues as the only member.

    “If Cameron can’t bring himself to punch himself in the mouth I’m more than happy to help out.”

    There could be a long queue…

    Could Cameron publish a list of Government departments and agencies together with payment terms ? It would be fun to see just how timely his agencies are in paying bills and living off cashflow of SMEs

  12. 12 John 06/03/2011 at 2:25 pm

    Why would anybody attempt a business start-up when faced with this catch-22?

  13. 13 Paul 06/03/2011 at 4:13 pm

    His speech is a joke. Take a look here and imagine his reaction if asked to repeal the climate change act.

    What an idiot.

  14. 14 Cassandra King 06/03/2011 at 7:30 pm

    Here is a snippet of a Cameron speech provided by the superlative EUREFERENDUM, read and weep OR laugh, me? I have hated him from the first second I laid eyes on him and now I hate him so much I can taste it. Read on!

    “This is an enterprise government too. Everywhere we can we’re breaking down the barriers to business growth – cutting corporation tax, gripping regulation, bringing in an enterprise allowance to help those who are unemployed set up their own business. But there’s so much more to do. Right now in our country there are what I would call the enemies of enterprise, whether it’s bureaucrats who concoct ridiculous rules or town hall officials who take ages to make planning decisions. Believe me, we are taking them on.”

    No mention of the EU, its diktats and its job killing red tape and suffocating bureaucracy. No mention of the EU demanded carbon Jihad and windmills costing billions and delivering nothing and the billions in EU tribute while taxes at home are destroying lives, no mention of all the real jobs fleeing East even as more billions flee East in the form of foreign aid to despots and parasite scum. Not too keen on telling us just how much of those billions in foreign aid gets used up in admin and salary costs/corrupt officials before it reaches any poor. An audit would probably reveal that out of every one pound barely a few pence will make it to the poor.

    How about quangos and non jobs? Before the election call me Dave was claiming that he would create a bonfire of the quangos to save money BUT after the election somehow for some reason the saving money angle was dropped and its now all about creating giant super quangos for greater efficiency. Now we still have the quangos and they are costing about the same and employing about the same number of parasites. The insane climate change act costs billions and delivers nothing, green jobs? Its a lie and all the evidence proves its a lie and still Cameron crows about his flagship policy. A moral duty he calls it, fighting a non existent fantasy is a moral duty? No! Defence of the realm is a moral duty, loyalty to ones country is a moral duty, love of ones own people and way of life is a moral duty.

    Every word out of Camerons mouth is a lie, smile for the cameras and look plausible, pretend to be earnest and honest while telling lies, string the thick electorate along for just a bit longer, send the grass roots back to sleep by throwing them the odd bone while sniggering at them behind their backs. Who would have thought, who would have dreamed that a conservative would be the Judas in our midst? Who would have believed that the most dangerous and implacable enemy of a sovereign UK would be a Tory?

    From day one he has lied to his supporters and lied to us, he has conned us and deceived us and manipulated us. People are starting to realise the mistake they made in giving him the benefit of the doubt, hoping against reason and evidence that he would be the real Tory we hoped he would be, we lied to ourselves as much as he lied to us. We wanted to believe so badly that that is what we did and now we have a regime inferior in every respect to the regime they replaced, quite an achievement eh? It wouldnt be so bad if they were simply rich cretins playing at being leaders, the regime we are cursed with is utterly determined to smash and destroy the UK.

  15. 15 Cassandra King 06/03/2011 at 7:46 pm

    Sorry but just an added thought.

    The Cameron product created to appear plausible a bit like breast implants. He looks genuine and then you look a little closer and he is as empty as a CoE church come Sunday morning, all presentation with no substance like a cardboard cut out. Fake smile and fake charm and fake personality and fake ideology.

    Even the sad deluded mentally ill drooling retard Brown looks a good PM next to Cameron, at least with McMental what you saw was what you got. You just know what the future holds dont you? Dave loses the election if his rancid regime lasts that long and Balls is the next leader and you just know what that will turn out like.

    Why the F*** don’t you silly bastards who live there get off your collective chuffs and organize to do something about this ! Why is UKIP incapable of making inroads ? If it can’t do the job, set up something that can. Surely, if your ideas and criticisms are reasonable you’ll be able to generate the support you need to replace this system of self-serving f***wits with something at least a bit more attuned to the gritty realities of life in the UK.

    So how are you going to do it ? Making impassioned pleas on blogs is all very well, but you are rather preaching to the choir.

    You could always give the moderators a headache by commenting on Camerons Blue Blog where this speech is repeated;

    If we have to be in Europe the least he could do is disband the parts of the UK government that don’t have a function any longer, given that the EU makes all relevant regulations and decides how our money will be spent. Things like the DTI and DEFRA are expensive deceits we can no longer afford.

    Nailing acid coated razor wire to the tumbril as I speak…

  20. 20 Vernon E 07/03/2011 at 2:35 pm

    Cassandra King – no, not worse than the last lot, they were just as bad and mad as well. Let’s remind ourselves why we voted for call-me-Dave; to get rid of Brown in the belief that things couldn’t get worse. These are without doubt consecutively the worst governments we have ever endured and there doesn’t seem to any hope on the horizon. I agree with Richard – we’re domed (sic).

  21. 21 Rereke Whakaaro 07/03/2011 at 8:33 pm

    Ed Snack – I was thinking the same thing myself.

    As an ex-pat of long standing, it still amazes me that the population of the UK doesn’t just get up on mass and move to Eritrea, or somewhere else a little more conducive to a reasonable existence.

    Surely the, “My da voted Tory, as his da did a’fore him, ‘ein I ain’t aboot to change tha’ na” attitude isn’t still the governing social attitude.

    If it is, then as Richard North would say, “You are all domed”.
