The PMs Priorities.

We've all seen the news, we've all read the threads, we've all shared the jokes. Take that to the NAAFI.

The fact remains that Gordon Brown, our Prime Minister, took time to say that after the passing of Jade Goody, he was "deeply saddened", and a whole load of other pointless soundbites.

What actual input/impact on the British political system did the former Big Brother "star" have? Zero. So why does he even need to comment on its passing? Votes. Back in the real world, soldiers, sailors and airmen are being killed on Operations, and our so-called "leader" does very little (on a picometric scale) to acknowledge this.

Every time someone is killed on an Operation that Gordon and his mate Tony made happen, where is the public announcement of their grief? Nowhere.

PtP, I apologise for the obvious rant, hole this as you see fit. It is just obvious where the priorities of the government lie - and it isn't with us.

Gordon Browns main effort is getting re-elected, everything else is secondary to that. His calculation is that his statement will get a few more votes.

An awful lot of Labour voters will idolise her though, Gordon will need every vote he can get to avoid being the only PM not to win an election!

The chav scroungers on the dole will love it. I imagine not many chav's care about the forces.
Nor will they vote, it's too tiring to think about. Better to watch more TV.

I couldn't care less what the chavs think. It's about what the alleged "leaders" of our country think.

Are you kidding?

The nasty conservatives might actually make them get a job! Much easier to keep Labour in and watch Jeremy Kyle all day.

I've no doubt that this thread is destined for the hole, but it would be nice if the usual CA heavyweights could actually explain why the death of a civilian (who has offered nothing to society other than the fact that you can get rich with the right publicist no matter how dim you are) would spur the PM to make such a "heartfelt"/votewinning* statement that he doesn't feel inclined to whenever someone HE is responsible for is killed overseas.

*delete first option.

Surely its because these tw@ts elected into a position of responsobility have gained the so called 'celebrity' status they can come into the living rooms and jail cells of every cnut via technology advancements, and proclaim their concern for the electorate.The spawn of this was when Tone invited such tw@ts as the Gallaghers to downing street in 1997.And we all know how the Jocks love a 'leader' and how impressionable they are.(sorry for mong spelling and grammer)i'm a thick cnut.You have every right to rant dear fellow,even my dear old mothers toes curled when she heard Gordys statement over St Jades demise pre the politics show earlier on the bbc,she then went into a rant that any arrser would be proud of bless her. :x

That's exactly my point, he's obviously siding with who he thinks might vote for him. I imagine nobody with savings will vote for him due to low interest rates. I can also see many of the working class people voting Conservative for the first time.
For all the talk of making people go back to work or having benefits stopped does it happen?
Brown will woo the chav's the sick,lame and lazy.
You missed out the rich puffs bit mate. lol:

He hasn't got a lot of choice, for 11 years he strode the political firmament informing anyone who'd listen that he was the saviour, the architect of a new financial order, he had abolished boom and bust. Now it's come back to bite him, he either believed what he was saying or he was lying or he didn't understand what he was saying. He isn't fit to hold his office, he is the shop floor worker who knows how to run the company. If he had any moral fibre he'd resign.

Fugly for PM! :D
He certainly gets my vote.

****ing Brown, incredible comments, what a fuckwit

Browns only acknowledgement of our losses are at prime ministers question time when he is looking to waist some time.

Its about time the one eyed pirate and his ministers got off there asses and attended some funerals and also visited the rehab centres. He has shown more respect for Goody than the whole of our losses.

A timely and accurate comment on our discredited prime minister. Well said 'fugly'.

I did not know any of the British soldiers killed in Iraq or Afghanistan, but I do care. I did not know Jade Goodie and I do not care.

As for the disreputable prime minister's priorities, I believe he only has one - personal political survival.
 
#19
His only Priorities are for himself to be the PM and his low life political party to stay in power creaming as much money as they can. To even comment on Jade Goodys death when he can't be bothered to comment when British forces are being killed is beyond contempt, remember it's votes that count!!!

I was going to make the same point, although he spouts his weekly platitudes at the beginning of PMQ's, so that he gets his compassion in before the leaders of the opposition! :x
He could have made the effort when he was parachuted in as PM last year to attend the first few repatriations of his tennure and then at the very least he could have delegated it to whoever is occupying the seat of SoS for Defence as a mandatory part of the job spec. The fact that he couldn't be ars*d speaks volumes.

To get back to Fugly's main point: His priorities are clearly to do everything in his power to cling onto the throne as long as possible. If that means appealing to the lowest common denominator to buy a few more votes, then so be it.
