BULS’ own Dave Borland, campaign maestro and manipulator in chief, was recently granted a starring role in this Labour Party film. Supporting Actress Jo Brand described working with Borland as “an absolute thrill, every minute of filming was a complete blast”. BULS wishes Dave all the best of luck in his new career.
It might interest you to know that yours truly was asked first to play the role yet I had to reluctantly turn down the offer as it was only just after Reading and my voice had left me.
Faithful readers I have been duped. I thought McCain was supposed to be a nice, friendly and cuddly figure of conservativism. Yet, like conservatives around the world the (very) senior Senator shed his clothes of deceit exposing his raw naked neo-liberal bum-cheeks for the whole world to see. (Apologies for the imagery).
I am going to address just one aspect of his speech right now as its just about spoilt my morning. “We’re going to stop sending $700 billion a year to countries that don’t like us very much.” Next year the US State Department will be given just over $11.4 billion which will “significantly strengthen … vital US diplomatic and consular relations with more than 180 countries.” So what countries has McCain listed as the ones that don’t like America – who will actually be losing out if he wins in November. Naturally, his website has nothing about this plan to support the growth of international poverty. It is quite sickening though, one candidate can be elected by (even a minority) of people in one particular country and have such a negative impact on poorer nations across the globe.
One question stands though – will McCain continue with the Millenium Development Goals and G8 targets that Bush so reluctantly signed up to.
