Well I was Right. That’s Life.

The Moran will not be competing against Esther Rantzen. Veterinarian dentists in Luton must now stop thinking about how they are going to grow their business as they may not be gaining the custom of Esther Rantzen. That’s Life I suppose.

If Esther wants to stand as an independent in Luton – she wil be doing it off her own back and not as the anti sleaze candidate. If she wants to do that she should look elsewhere.

I do have to point out a little of what I have learnt from the area of Luton. The Council is absolutely rubbish. As is its website. How do you contact the Chief Executive from it?

The BBC during the last few weeks have been running Party Political Broadcasts for Esther Rantzen on behalf of the BBC Party. No use of the term Prospective Parliamentary Candidate. No one on there to oppose or question her. No one asking her why she was targeting the moron the Hoon Margaret Moran, MP. A seat that looks very likely to fall from Labour at the next election.

If her candidacy was about expenses, Rantzen should now trot along to the seat of a thieving Cabinet Minister. Such as Alistair Darling. These are the people who have piled on the taxes on working people, but have used accountants paid for by the State to avoid them themselves, while building up multi million Property Empires again at the expense of taxpayers.

It seems strange that Rantzen still wants to fight the Luton seat despite Moran being forced to quit.

To me it also seems deeply wrong that a crisis ridden Government, whose Party is now in 3rd place in the polls now after all of these years wants to discuss electoral reform and House of Lords “reform”. This smacks of election fiddling far worse than the Glenrothes By Election and it could make their Neo Con friends victory of 2000 look positively honest.

The House of Lords stopped Parliament being abolished. It was only internet junkies and the Lords that did this. In 1997 The British Conservative Party was about as popular as a used hypodermic needle and about as likely to be touched. What would have been the consequences of having an elected Second Chamber?

Democracy is a great thing but without an effective revising chamber our legislative standards will only get worse. We have laws so badly written that they now criminalise millions of internet users.

Just how much awful legislation would there have been had New Labour have been able to simply bypass what little is left of Parliament? Maybe it would not have been used to introduce more “anti terrorism” laws, but given the history of how those laws have been used – I doubt that. Who however doubts that Post Office privatisation could have been slipped through as a deregulation issue?

Gordon Brown should not be able to use the scandal of expense fiddling to fiddle his way to an election victory. The BBC needs to grow a set and rather than supinely accept every word Brown and his minions speak on the issue of electoral reform – they need to ask one simple question “why now”?
