Dear Mr Cameron,

When Michael Gove said that ‘people in this country have had enough of experts’, he did something rather spectacular which sums up the problems of our time and the referendum. As a media savvy elitist, he spun a deliberate falsehood which meant that people opening their door to find some kind of sense, reason or expertise were first met by people like Gove, not to mention you and Johnson, who had set themselves up as guardians of the lie blocking the door and befouling the road to any kind of truth.

So sure and certain is Gove in his awe inspiring arrogance, he’s standing to be the next leader of your party and so great is his overweening confidence in his feudal arrogance, he probably dines off the backs of serfs laden with platters glazed with the Union Jack.

Yes, the Union Jack, that national symbol of Britain’s greatness, a symbol of imperial might, ownership, rulership, war and oppression (what else are flags for?). Small wonder you have adopted it for your party logo as you drive us back to the heady days when people knew their place and were dutifully subservient to their masters and betters who so utterly despised them, as now.

It reminds me of my early days of writing to you. I was contacted by someone who told me I had no idea how to write a proper letter to the Prime Minister of Great Britain and proceeded to rewrite one of my letters, with never a care for asking my permission, into official, respectful, meaningless gobbledygook. The poor chap was most put out when I refused his noble efforts to educate me into the language of proper servitude.

I was incredibly impressed by Boris Johnson’s Brexit speech, he had all the conviction of a man speaking at his own funeral. It is of no surprise that he will not be contesting the Tory leadership because he is too craven to sup from the poison chalice he himself filled. Bad career choice, eh?

War is the sport of those who rule, Mr Cameron, and what a bloody war it is that you wage against us. You gave us a referendum, but none have sought to manipulate the result more than you and your band of liars who would never trust us with a free and informed vote. You’ve all made it the most divisive vote in our history.

Whatever happens now, one thing is sure, the war on the poor will continue, Osborne has promised us that. However the vote went, we would be punished, we had austerity before the vote and we’ll have austerity after, people will die but that means nothing to you. Whatever happens, you are certain of your own life of luxury in which betrayal is the most valuable coinage. For you it’s a game, for us it is deadly, because only we pay the price. In an uncertain world, that is certain.

Boris Johnson ‘takes the coward’s way out’ in the face of Michael Gove’s betrayal

A letter a day to number 10. No 1,475

Sunday 26 June 2016.

Dear Mr Cameron,

There is a shit storm sweeping this country and why? Because too many politicians lie through their teeth and cannot be trusted to tell the time of day unless you’re standing next to Big Ben. That’s why.

There is now a petition calling for a second referendum, currently standing at 2,002,902 signatures, yes that’s 2 million signatures (in one day). I’ll sign it when I hear that every politician that lied in the referendum would be chained and gagged and locked in the Tower of London for the duration.

I am sure you know by now that Boris Johnson was booed resoundingly as he left his home on Friday without a word of apology and that Nigel Farage has had the temerity to call the Leave campaign’s £350 million for the NHS a ‘mistake’. The UK Statistics Authority called it ‘misleading’ and the Institute for Fiscal Studies said it was ‘absurd’ and yet this misleading absurdity was used till the bitter end.

Let’s not forget the fear mongering either, more candidates for the Tower, gagged and shackled. Your own warning of the potential for a European wide conflict if we leave the EU was dutifully reported by the media as a warning that ‘Brexit’ could trigger World War Three.

The real biggie, of course, was immigration, with Farage’s now infamous ‘Breaking Point’ poster to cap it all off.

Special mention, though, must go to Michael Gove who said, ‘People in this country have had enough of experts’. Perhaps what he should have said was that experts had been so successfully drowned out by political and media bullshit like his that trying to make any sense of the referendum was nigh on impossible. Credibility was successfully stretched to breaking point by relentless lies and spin from corrupt and venal politicians manufacturing chaos.

There is a whole lot of blaming going on right now. The country is bitterly divided, but there is really only one enemy, those who practice to deceive and the tangled web they have wilfully and deliberately woven. Were I a more vengeful and blood thirsty man I’d say hang the lot of you, but I’ll settle for forced incarceration in the Tower of London as long as there is a public gallery where we can mock you and listen to your pathetic bleating against the justice visited upon you. A handy trough of fruit and veg well past it’s sell by date would not go amiss either: good therapy. Boris got off lightly.
