Election time is when we all get fed equal doses of irony and hypocrisy. The irony bit for me as a candidate and an activist, with a considerable amount of involvement with the general election now taking place, is that this is the first chance I have had a minute to write about the election because of the time the election is taking up for me.
We now have the mad and hypocritical situation where the leaders of the three so-called main political parties, the Lib, Lab, Con, are dashing here and there espousing how wonderful they are, their wives and their policies and how they will improve our lives, yet none of them will actually be able to change a thing as we are governed from the EU, a major problem none of them want to talk about.
They won’t talk about the very serious problems now hitting the Greek economy created through its mad decision to scrap their sovereign currency and hand over control of their interest rates to the European Central Bank. They won’t talk about the implication to us regarding this as we may be forced to spend £ billions of British taxpayers money trying to help sort out a mess created by the vanity of the Euro fanatics who want to create a new country called Europe. No, they will just prattle on about things which they will have little control over when elected as they will have to ask the EU if it is permissible first.
Having said this, none-the-less I really have to admire the Walsall Conservative Party’s sense of humour, they have just given me the best laugh I have had in ages.
As a resident of Walsall South since my childhood, where I am standing as a UKIP Parliamentary candidate, I have just received an election leaflet from their candidate, Richard Hunt. In it he piously states: “Locals ignored as Labour Parachute Candidate into Walsall South.” This, of course, comes from a Yorkshire born man now living about a two hour drive south of Walsall who, guess what, has been parachuted into the Walsall South Parliamentary constituency by the Conservative Party - talk about an ironic sense of humour!
If the voters of Walsall South really want a local resident to represent them in our constituency then they will have to vote UKIP, of which, of course, I am the candidate.
I have lived in Walsall South since 1961, went to the college in the town, grew up here and in a few years time will retire here – unless elected of course – then I will represent the people I have spent all my life with, a job I will take seriously and will not treat as a laughing matter.
