The Labour infestation which David Cameron must eradicate

They are everywhere. Socialist cockroaches have invaded the pantries of Whitehall, concealed in dark corners and skulking under the furniture. The infestation has thrived over the past decade, with thousands of the scavenging beetles flourishing, swarming and breeding in the ideal conditions created by New Labour. They consume what is left of the food and leave a tell-tale trail in their faeces.

And they passively transport microbes on their body surfaces including those that are potentially dangerous to humans. And they are hardy – immune even from the radiation fallout of a nuclear bomb. Not even a blast of Rent-o-Kill Conservatism is likely to eradicate them.

The Times reveals that Whitehall employs dozens of union officials at taxpayers’ expense.

Whitehall is supposed to be politically neutral: civil servants are contractually obliged to leave their political allegiances at home and support whichever party is in power. But it transpires that Labour is funding trade union activity by employing trade union officials inside Whitehall.

And the taxpayer is forking out millions of pounds for their salaries. The union officials cost between £150,000 and £4.5 million per department. They are also given access to office space, computers and other equipment worth an estimated £1.2 million payment-in-kind per annum.

When one considers the problems which certain unions may present an incoming Conservative administration, this revelation is of immense concern. The union officials will be free to spend time on their anti-Tory agendas and do all they can to scupper the reforms necessary in the public sector. They will be free to obfuscate, delay and brief against their ministers – all at the taxpayers’ expense.

Whitehall has been systematically corrupted by New Labour. Tony Blair politicised the civil service, and now Gordon Brown is doing immense favours for the trade unions, on whose financial liquidity the party is wholly dependent. When the paymaster unions abandon Labour, the party ends.

But this is only one infestation: the quangos are just as infested, if not moreso, by New Labour placemen and women. And it is the quangos which really govern Britain – some 800 of them are responsible for everything from finance to health, from highways to planning, from fraud to food standards. All funded with handouts from the state. They cost each household in the UK over £2,500 per annum. They employ almost 700,000 people. They cost the nation £64bn.

Research by the Taxpayers' Alliance reveals that since New Labour came to power, the cost of this unseen branch of government has risen by 50 per cent.

But the most concerning thing about the quangos is not how much they cost (though that is concerning enough); it is their unaccountability and the power they wield. And it is wielded by omnipotent politically-correct New Labourites, for it is to Labour that these 700,000 owe their jobs.

And one must not ignore the ultimate and supreme quango of them all – the European Commission, which is the nation’s ultimate government.

Quangos are not concerned with efficiency or with sound economics: they exist for their self-perpetuation.

When David Cameron becomes prime minister, the broken economy and broken society will be nowhere near as difficult to fix as the hidden Socialist government which will continue in tiers of intractable administration beneath him. It will need a revolution to remedy the cronyism and corruption.

And he is not remotely likely to want to increase unemployment by 700,000.

Your grace, as the great JBS Haldane said, God must have an inordinate fondness for beetles as He created so many of them. Or if you wish his colepoteran body plan was so intelligently designed that they come to form a signiicant percentage of the world's species. Beetles merely do what they must to survive, and do it very well, and should consider legal action against your Grace for being conflated with fifth columnists.

Your Grace,

An excellent post. The Bonfire of the Quangos must take place under a Conservative government. Any government actually.

Will Cameron have the strength and courage to do this? I hope so, for our nation's sake.

Your Grace,

The old oral and dare I say it, primitive, convention that the Civil Service is politically neutral is dead. It was killed by a New Labour government that has exchanged moral and ethical principles for the Marxian dialectic:

Thesis (politically neutral Civil Service) + Anti-thesis (socialist administrators) = the Quango State.

The truth of the matter is as Marxists such as Ken Livingstone have said: ‘The personal is the political.’ Therefore, the Marxist does not expect his administrator to leave his prejudices at home, on the Tube or at the office door.

Nor does the socialist administrator expect his colleague to leave his Christian beliefs at home or at the office door. That is why we have witnessed a stream of Judaeo-Christians being paraded before the press at the doors of Industrial Tribunals for their beliefs. Marxism is the ideology that makes the world of British socialism spin; that is the social theory that makes the wrongdoing of the socialist seem justified in his own eyes and sow confusion in the hearts of its poor victims: ‘Aren’t we all hear to help the poor?’ It is the socialist administrator that would prevent the woman mentioned in the scriptures from pouring precious oil over our Lord’s head upon the ground that it could be sold and the profits redistributed to the poor.

Cameron would not increase the dole queues by 700,000 if he were to expel the socialist administrators. He needs to act in the same way as an incoming American administration. Exchange the 700,000 for right-of-Centre administrators.

Your Grace, cockroaches might be nuke proof and poison proof but they aren't stamping down hard with a boot heel proof. They crunch very nicely.

Most quangos are parasitical. This country can no longer afford to carry parasites. Quangos are an obvious place for any sensible government to begin cutting back on public spending. Another major parasite that needs stopping dead in its tracks is PFI.

As for Cameron, well he hasn't got the Eds to do what needs to be done.

@D. Singh

I agree with your sentiments, however, when/if the conservatives take power they should throw out the part placemen from the civil service and do it on the first day.

700,000 added to the unemployed, probably not. They'll likely return to the bosom of the union from whence they came.

Even if all 700,000 became unemployed would we notice and who would care about union activists not being allowed to use state funds?

The most direct approach would be to draw up and publish a priority hit list now and to rid of all those on the list on day 1 after the election.

In the run up to the election it would give Gordon Brown and his cronies the unedifying task of trying to defend the indefensible.

But, deep down I think Gnostic is right, Cameron wont have the balls to get rid of these guys.

Cameron won't have the balls?

Your Grace please get Cameron to start smoking long cigars and please encourage him to watch the following movies seeling at a mere £4 each at a well known popular food store:

1. The Good, bad and the Ugly;
2. For a fist full of dollars; and
3. For a few dollars more.

That should do it.

He has not forgotten the Common Purpose cockroaches, for they are the same cockroaches.

The establishment run this country, not elected anyone. Cameron will be captain of a ship that has no rudder, sails, or indeed engine. But he will have the BBC snapping at his heals, whatever he says or does, that you can be totally assured of.

Many of us have been here before, and very much bought the T-Shirt. Just like the eighties people will ignore the BBC, the wild-cat strikes and general mayhem, because they will rightly conclude that it is the last bunch of criminals that caused all of the problems. Yet the losers will be us, as per always, and the Real powers that be, ( not a good idea at this moment to mention names, you understand, I have a wife, and children to consider, however it really is not that difficult to find out yourself, )will buy themselves another planet to run, and run-off to.

All I ask for is a little honesty from these people. But it seems that honest respect for the people, and government. Have permanently parted company, if indeed there ever really was a relationship going on in the first place.

ALL is subverted, absolutely EVERYTHING. So incredibly subverted that this situation truly defies adequate description.

Although describing the wheels of corporate government and the corporations that own all government, as being infested with cockroaches, is perhaps the best I have heard so far.

I personally prefer to describe government and corporate life to be infested by devout EVIL, however blood-sucking cockroaches will do find for now.

Your Grace,

Of course there is one labyrinth of intersecting and interlocking functions, procedures and rules that Cameron will probably forget about and then wonder why his ‘radical Conservative administration’ failed to progress.

It is the multitude, greater in number than the Gardarene swine, and smaller than the number of grains of sand on the shore at Frinton-on-Sea: of EU Directives translated into domestic law through regulations.

Like Japanese knotweed, they will wrap themselves around Cameron and the ankles of his entire cabinet.

No jobs for British workers because of the EU’s Temporary Posted Workers Directive. The Commission for Equality and Human Rights cannot classify it as race discrimination as EU law is superior.

Even where EU ‘anti-discrimination’ law clearly applies, for example the thousands of British university lecturers who are humiliated daily by the Italian higher education authorities; and who have been fined repeatedly by the EU; the Italian authorities have still not changed their practices.

Even if Cameron was to expel layer after layer of bureaucrats he still needs to make a momentous decision: he still needs to employ thousands of Civil Servants to administer Regulations (EU Directives) to all aspects of British life (for example the changing of a light-bulb and ensuring that we successfully pay £106,000 per minute to maintain membership of the EU); or discharge the fines that will be levelled by the EU for failing to implement its superior law; or renegotiate the terms of membership; or leave the EU.

One thing is for sure: a momentous decision has to be made. On the one-hand perhaps a momentous decision need not be made. The Lisbon (Constitutional) Treaty is self-amending. The Queen, the majority of politicians and the people will be superfluous to requirements.

But for that to happen, whether explicitly expressed or not, the British government will have to deny that sovereignty lies within the British people. If it does so deny then calling the next General Election is meaningless.

On the other-hand, given the titanic importance of the Lisbon Treaty and its far reaching and fundamentally changing effects upon the nature of our liberty, security and freedom to call a General Election is to confess, whether explicitly or implicitly, that sovereignty lies within the British people and the great constitutional theorist A. V. Dicey was wrong: that parliament is sovereign. And if the people are sovereign, and their sovereign will is ignored, then the people have a sovereign a democratically legitimate right to resist their government’s decision to surrender us into the hands of the future federal government of the European Union (of Socialist Republics).

How say Cameron now my lord? Where does he stand now?

"Cockroaches don't suck blood." Well a Palmetto Bug in 'attack mode' sure gives the impression it'll do something of the sort!!! (Aren't roaches omnimvores?)

As an adjunct to good housekeeping (like daily garbage removal), I find a monthly application of Home Defen[c]e keeps them at bay. They don't last long then, even if they somehow sneak in.

Btw - on Cameron's reading list... I think we should recommend a really good post-graduate level course on our Pro-Christ benefactor Alfred the Great (I just read a post a couple of strands back). Mind you, to come up with a straight, unbiassed, intellectually free and honest interpretation, Cameron would need to disempower some cucurachas in the academic machine...

I think there are 3 categories :
Cockroaches - the employees and senior management of Quangoes, fake charities, UAF and such
Rats - the leaders of so-called socialist movements like unions, and government ministers like Harman, Hoon, Johnson, Straw etc
vampires - the likes of Brown, Blair, Mandelson and the rest

Of course, that's just in the UK. When you include Europe, Giscard-D'estaing comes top of my list of candidates for the final solution.
