On fixing the cabinet and unethical celebrity entrepeneurs

When the high-profile cabinet members started dropping like flies, I thought it was on account of said high profile cabinet members getting an attack of conscience over the expenses shame and finally ‘doing what is right’  but no, apparently it’s a Blairite coup.

Well anyway, whatever it is, the big names are dropping like flies and Gordon Brown is reshuffling his cabinet.

And in the midst of his reshuffle which is all probably irrelevant now because they will soon be the shadow cabinet (if they’re lucky!!), he’s given Alan Sugar a major advisory role.  Alan Sugar!!!  What kind of crappery is that?  Sure, we all accept that a good business head is needed in an advisory capacity but I never imagined Gordon feeding off the popularity of anything so gross as reality TV, which is basically what he’s done.  Why else would he pick such an arrogant and misogynistic corporate celebrity who gives bullying a good name when he could have asked a whole bunch of ethical entrepreneurs?

But no, he picked Alan Sugar who is up there with the likes of Jeremy Clarkeson in my Most Detestable People list.  I find it quite obscene that the company he built, Amstrad – a huge multi-million pound business, doesn’t have an effective corporate social responsibility policy (CSR), nor does it have an environmental policy and has no plan to introduce one.  So I’m not a happy bunny that our Prime Minister has chosen him to consult with on matters pertaining to the business of the country.  The unelected and utterly dreadful Alan Sugar cares only about fame, power and money.  And peerages.  He didn’t even know who Gordon Brown was and until Brown made some criticisms about him:

I do not know who Mr Gordon Brown is. Excuse my ignorance, but I don’t. Whoever he is, he has not done his homework properly. The man doesn’t know what he is talking about.

Yes, I know, that’s along time ago and since then he’s made huge donations to the Labour party, which brings me to more cynicism.  Perhaps it was the carroty dangle of a Lordship that lured him into saying yes to Brown.

Finally, why-oh-why the heck hasn’t Jack Straw gone yet?

  1. Perhaps Straw hasn’t got instructions from Zionists yet…


  2. Yes, he will have to wait to be told what to do. He’s a dreadful politician. He’s my constituency MP and he once brought Condaleezza Rice to our town. Needless to say, I didn’t bother to go and see her. I didn’t trust myself not to throw eggs or something equally smelly.
