Saturday ponderings

I have decided to change the way that I vote.

Seeing what Japan is going through at the moment with earthquakes, tsunamis and the threat of a nuclear disaster all affecting the whole area made me have a serious think about things.

Have you ever watched a disaster movie? The Day After Tomorrow, Deep Impact, Independence Day?

In every single film at some point the president takes to the airwaves and announces the end of the world.

In every film the president is usually an extremely likeable person who you trust immediately. (Morgan Freeman, i'm talking to you)

Now think back to our current global situation and consider your TV flickering to a broadcast from 10 Downing St to announce the end of the world.

I don't know about you but I REALLY don't want that news to come from David Cameron do you?

Nothing political about it, it is just as a person I think he comes across as smarmy. If he told me that he was doing everything in his power to avert the crisis ahead after I had finished vomiting I would probably quickly look around for the easy way out.

I wouldn't want to hear that I had won the lottery from David Cameron to be honest.

But the end of the world?

No thanks.

I'm not saying it is going to happen, but the way that our beautiful, fragile world is acting at the moment is heartbreaking and my thoughts are with Japan.

But if I ever have to hear those worlds that the end of the world is near, I'd rather that they called in Morgan Freeman, Hell, even Martin Freeman to tell me rather than David Cameron.


  1. Couldn't agree more - can't stand the guy.

  2. Loved the post... had to read it to hubby and we wholeheartedly agree with you ! There's just something about British politicians... whatever they say in their speeches they never come across as sincere.
    Hubby reminded me of a picture that's going round, Tit&Nick (read it quickly and think of a sinking ship)... That's what he refers to Cameron and Clegg as... might want to check it out for a laugh :)


Due to increased spam comments I am now having to moderate the comments I receive. I will do my best to get them approved quickly so please, carry on commenting as every time you comment a kitten smiles.
