The following list of names are each and every T.U.R.D (Turbid, Useless Regional Directors!) that voted to restrict the freedoms of the working man. They are those misguidedly elected into power under the assumption that "they work for us"-they have never worked for us!
Happily, within the first 5 months of 2010, the majority of these 'turd's' will be forced to relinquish their hold on our daily lives for they have brought nothing but unhappiness to the table. They have caused the British people, 15 million of them, to completely change their way of life. Socialising has never been so uninspiring since July 1st, 2007, but the Valentines Day massacre in February, 2006 was the day of the SB vote in the House of Commons where the common man failed to matter anymore!

The above named are in red as they are Labour MP's, but they should also be red with embarrassment when you look at the carnage they have wreaked within the hospitality industry! Apparently they are all working for YOU, except when they followed the party line in a "free vote" they instantly stopped working for you because so far they have voted to close 4,352 businesses. Businesses that were once viable sources of income for licensees, tenants, manager et al. They never once thought of the consequences of their actions that day. They never once questioned the validity of the SCOTH report or the junk science behind the SB proposal. They simply got carried away on the wave of euphoria created by the health lobby promoting clean air! How many now rue that decision to vote for the smokeban? How many are banned from entering their local pubs or clubs?
If you read this Patricia Hewitt/Peter Soulsby-you most certainly ARE!
Come election day it is only to be hoped that you all sweat a little as your fate is decided by the people of this country-but don't hold your breath for too long! I know a few on the list have already gone (thank God) and some are in public disgrace-porn video's, extravagant expenses etc but when voting day comes around expect to be relieved of duty, relieved of rather large wage packets, relieved of virtually unlimited expense accounts (well, until you get collared!)
You have divided this country, set man against man in following the dictatorship of the egomaniac Blair. Did you not notice that he stepped down 3 days before the SB came into force? Did you not notice that this country was ruined before he handed over to the No10 wannabe?
The only saving grace as far as Blair/Britain is concerned is that he is not Euro President!
55million people should sigh in great relief at that outcome. As for the 'wannabe', Herr Brown, after the election he will be gone-and totally forgotten for the man has about as much charisma as a dead rat!
The next list is to the shame of the Tories:-
David Amess (Southend West) James Arbuthnot (Hampshire North East) Tony Baldry (Banbury) John Bercow (Buckingham) Sir Paul Beresford (Mole Valley) Peter Bone (Wellingborough) Tim Boswell (Daventry) Peter Bottomley (Worthing West) Julian Brazier (Canterbury) James Brokenshire (Hornchurch) Alistair Burt (Bedfordshire North East) Greg Clark (Tunbridge Wells) Stephen Crabb (Preseli Pembrokeshire)
David Curry (Skipton & Ripon) Mrs Nadine Dorries (Bedfordshire Mid) Tobias Ellwood (Bournemouth East) David Evennett (Bexleyheath & Crayford) Michael Fabricant (Lichfield) Ms Justine Greening (Putney) John Greenway (Ryedale) Oliver Heald (Hertfordshire North East) Michael Jack (Fylde) David Jones (Clwyd West) Daniel Kawczynski (Shrewsbury & Atcham) Robert Key (Salisbury) Mrs Eleanor Laing (Epping Forest) Mark Lancaster (Milton Keynes North East) David Lidington (Aylesbury) Peter Luff (Worcestershire Mid) Anne Main (St Albans) Patrick Mercer (Newark) Anne Milton (Guildford) James Paice (Cambridgeshire South East) Michael Penning (Hemel Hempstead)
John Penrose (Weston-Super-Mare) John Randall (Uxbridge) Andrew Rosindell (Romford) Lee Scott (Ilford North) Andrew Selous (Bedfordshire South West) Grant Shapps (Welwyn Hatfield) Mrs Caroline Spelman (Meriden) Sir John Stanley (Tonbridge & Malling) Gary Streeter (Devon South West) Shailesh Vara (Cambridgeshire North West) Rob Wilson (Reading East) Jeremy Wright (Rugby & Kenilworth) Sir George Young (Hampshire North West)
I know that some on this list have now changed tack somewhat for they have seen the folly of that "free vote". It would seem that the Tories are more for the working classes than the 'working man's party'-who have done bugger all for 'their own'! If the Tories cannot see the obvious and set their stall out to reform the SB then there is no hope for this country whatsoever. There is no money in circulation to speak of, yet filling pubs & clubs with happy drinkers is the easiest source of getting the economy moving again. In years gone by just how many arguments were there between smoker & non smoker? Virtually none, but this evil, divisive law has set one against t'other to such an extent that a hatred has been born.
To the Tory hopefuls I say this:- you have been gifted the next term of government by the most useless and inadequate Labour administration ever known to this country. Listen to your voters, reform the ban to suit all parties, give licensees the chance to run their businesses how they see fit instead of allowing them to watch all their hard work go down the toilet of bankruptcy & poverty.
Your time is coming early next year, prepare wisely for you have many young hopefuls in the wings ready to play their part in British politics. The health lobby and the quango's need to be subdued befor civil disorder breaks out-you have the chance to appease the nation, do not baulk at the prospect!
I can't be bothered listing the 47 Libdems who voted for the SB as they are basically a nonentity party with no particular direction. Why they are named such (Liberal) is beyond the comprehension of this humble scribbler, for there is
No liberalism in voting to leperise 15 million people in your own country.
No liberalism in voting to close 4,352 businesses.
No liberalism invoting to cause 37 unnecessary bankruptcies.
No liberalism in causing more than 100 couple to become homeless.
No liberalism in voting to occasion 4 suicides &
No liberalism in voting to put 100,000 people out of work!
It also brings the word 'democratic/democracy' into question. If they pick up anymore seats next year it will merely be the losses from the Labour benches but from my apolitical stance, if I were Nick Clegg, I would be looking over my shoulder for Nigel Farage and the rampaging UKIP mob. You see, UKIP have balls-the LibDems don't!
So the message is simple from Simple Simon, if your MP or prospective candidate is in favour of providing choice then vote for him/her. If they are not, simply support someone who is! Whatever you do please do not, NOT vote for taking a vote away from a future 'turd' is still a victory.
To abstain from voting will be a crime for every single person needs to take charge of his/her destiny, it's no good moaning after the event when you could have had a hand in changing things.
If you want your pubs & clubs to survive then get your 'roodypoos' in the voting booths next March, April or May. Show the 'turd's' the doorway to oblivion-see if they have to 'sign on'?
