Wonderful news that Peter Hain has stepped down in order to spend more time with his parole officer - another anti-English bastard out the government, hopefully for good. Of course, almost every Labour MP has 'issues' with England, but the really obnoxious former ministers, listed in the axis of evil below, are finding that their political influence is on the wane. Or gone altogether.
|De facto English First Minister. A disaster for railways, local planning, fire service, Dome, public probity, and destroyer of greenbelt and architecture. Champagne socialist and philanderer. Retired in disgrace.|
|PM without mandate, unelected in England or Scotland on his priorities 'Education, Housing and Planning'. For ten years he has formulated his ideas on a 'Britain of nations and regions'. Can barely conceal his visceral hatred of England. Repugnant NuFascist
|Blair's former flatmate elevated to a position of power beyond his ability. Unelected Secretary of State for Constitutional Affairs who supports devolution for Scotland but, passionately, not England. Sidelined|
|Jobsworth lickspittal, jilted bitch of John Prescott at the ODPM. Cold and calculating Minister for Regions who rode roughshod over local democracy. Irrelevant|
|Horrendous little shit. Used his position as Secretary of State for Wales (and Northern Ireland) to argue that there should never be a Secretary of State for England. Like Brown he can barely disguise his contempt for English history and tradition. Stepped down|
|Constitutional attack dog of the Scottish Raj. Old radical -now a part of the furniture- increasingly bogged down in a constitutional mire undertaking interminable green papers, reviews and committees. Famously described the English as 'very violent'. Out of his depth|
|Understudy to the lickspittal Raynsford at the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister. Did what he was told, and liked it. Pimped out to the NLGN. Lost his seat.|
|First Minister of Wales thanks to a cottaging scandal. More enthusiastic about regionalising England than governing Wales. Beaten by Plaid.|
|Probably did England a favour for so obviously being an anglophobic twat, though even then he may have just been playing to the crowd. Beaten by the SNP.|
|Gordon Brown has been using him as a sounding board for his ideas on Britishness for a decade. The new Raj? Simpleton.|
They are my personal top ten, ordered by magnitude of their hatred for England. I'm sure you will have others, you may disagree with the order, and I'm sure many of you will be surprised at some of the omissions. Tony Blair isn't in there because, although undoubtedly bad for Britain, I don't think he was anti-English. He was never a great fan of regionalisation, he didn't really care either way, it was just a concession he made to the Europhiles and Marxists in his party in order to command their cooperation in 'Blairism'. Similarly with the Barnett Formula; sure it was unfair but he didn't have principles so why rock the boat. He didn't hate England, it just meant nothing to him. He was a man without a national identity; not English, not Scottish, not even British; one foot over the Atlantic, the other in Iraq or Brussels, his arse on Britain.
People like Des Browne and Alistair Darling, although members of the Scottish Raj, were just puppets. Admittedly Darling, as Secretary of State for [English] Transport, was a particularly high-profile Raj-ist he never deliberately antagonsied the English. 'Dr' John Reid (Secretary of State for [English] Health) is a similar case in point, though unlike Darling in possession of a backbone.
John Prescott is above Gordon Brown if only for the scale of his incompetence. It defies belief to even begin to imagine the amount of taxpayers' money wasted on his various failed projects - and nothing that he turned his hand to was a success. His complete and utter uselessness and buffoonery endeared him to some people. But not to me. For me he will always be an evil and incompetent cunt. I can only thank God for his incompetence, if he'd been competent he would have been dangerous.
