If there was a General Election Tomorrow, Ed Miliband would become P.M.

If there was a General Election Tomorrow, Ed Miliband would become P.M.

Despite what politico’s say about his conference speech, he has said enogh to convince a lot of core voters that he is not New Labour.

It doesn’t matter if he holds true to his unspoken promise.

David Cameron became Prime Minister because og Nick Clegg’s support and voter’s abreaction to Brown and Blair.

Lib Dem’s support will fade away, especially as they will have to campaign as a subset of the Conservatives.

Lost Labour voters will come out to vote against Cameron, his disdain for the electorate’s wishes and the old Tories that are emerging from the woodwork to feed on the public purse.

The only problem for Ed Miliband is his avoidance of talking about Europe.

 Any “we must stay in Europe” statement,  will send many voters to UKIP but they are still seen as also-rans and probably won’t affect the outcome by much.

The Dictatorship of Britain

A worrying aspect of the hacking case is the possible repercussions.
I was taught that Government is split into three branches, which hold each other in check.
These are the legislative arm, the executive arm and the judiciary.
We have already seen Parliament take control of the judiciary through the constitutional Reform Act 2005, which now has The Treasury deciding length of sentencing of criminals, through its budgetary control of the Lord Chief Justice, Kenneth Clarke.
We have all seen how disastrous this has been in terms of increasing criminality.
The gradual privatisation of branches of the Civil Service is weakening The effect of the Executive arm.
Now David Cameron, in response to the alleged corruption of police by member of News International, is proposing that non-police be appointed to senior posts within The Police. This poses the possibility of a future Prime Minister being able to place a Political ally in charge of The Police.
Threats to take closer control of The Press pose a further danger of political control over The Fourth  balancing power in our Parliamentary Democracy.
We are moving closer to the day when one man/woman could effectively have direct control of The Civil Service, The Police, The Courts, The Press and possibly, when all the realigning of the armed services are complete, an Army, which is too small to act against external aggressors, but in a strong position to act against domestic terrorists, whoever they might be.
