The Launch of the Blogging Party
I hereby officially launch a new force in UK politics, The Blogging Party. This is in direct response the asinine statements of that fanciable fathead Hazel Blears on the nihilistic politics of bloggers.
The party's political stance can best be described as Anglo Saxon Mixed Race Non Internationally Interventionist Libertarian Democratic Judeo Christian free market socially just, thrifty and responsible with compassion and with a firm commitment to the rule of English Common and Commercial Law and the sovereignty of Parliament. It will also by definition have a very highly developed sense of the ridiculous and be able to laugh at itself. It has no ambition for power, holding to the Spike Milligan view that anyone who wants power (or a handgun) is constitutionally disqualified from having it (or owning one).
Membership is free. Donations will be sought in due course to field candidates. The first of these should be by rights in HB's constituency of Salford.
If anyone can be remotely arsed in getting involved - because I am having difficulty retaining my enthusiasm even as I type this - can comment below.
