Lord Sralan of Sugar

June 7, 2009

sralangordoWith the news that our glorious unelected Prime Minister Gordon Brown has recruited Sralan as a government advisor (and Lord), it got me thinking that perhaps the floppy faced one would benefit from other Tsars from the world of TV…

    Gordon Brown was elected, as MP for his constituency. He’s head of the largest party (for a few more days at least), therefore Prime Minister. No one has ever been elected Prime Minister!

    no, but he wasn’t elected as leader of the labour party (and therefore PM). he became leader because his party nominated him. he also became leader because no one else would stand against him.

    the british public did not elect him as their PM. his position in this country is not exactly what i would call democratically elected, would you? seriously?

    But when we voted Labour as biggest party, we voted for whoever they choose as leader to be Prime Minister. We know that’s how the system works! (or should do, or don’t really have any business voting). If you say that he wasn’t elected, you have to also point out that Tony Blair wasn’t elected Prime Minister, or Margaret Thatcher. None of them were.

    And can anyone who voted for Labour in the last election seriously say that Gordon Brown taking over came as a complete surprise to them? We knew he was going to be the next Labour leader, we’ve known it for years. He was as elected as Tony Blair was in that election.

    Which is why we need a reform of our political system!

    Well I’d rather have what we’ve got than the American system, where you can end up with a President that can’t get anything done if his party doesn’t control Congress or the Senate. I think the major change we need is proportional representation, so that one party can’t dominate the Commons when less than half of people voted for them.

    You make the assumption that a reform of our government would equate to the current US model. Not true.

    And proportional representation would be great for a general election, but wouldn’t that be problematic considering the whole constituency shebang.

    Shebang is a fancy political term.

    actually, i totally disagree that that’s how the system works. it’s how it’s SUPPOSED to work and how we’re told it works, but it really isn’t.

    i’d say the system we have right now is as close the the US as anything we had pre blair. blair turned his pm-ship into a presidency, running his party as a one-man ship with his ministers as advisors, not a party working as one. he effectively asked us to vote in a leader of the uk, not a leader of a party, and a party to run the ship.

    thus, when i say brown hasn’t been voted in, i mean he wasn’t chosen as the leader of the country, but stepped in when someone stronger got himself/his party elected first.

    It’s clear the people want a clearly identifiable leader that they can vote in.

    Is this BMTV or Question Time?

    What the fuck’s going on? Politics? On a telly blog? Who’s ever heard of such a thing, I ask you?

    No! I’d like to throw in my tuppence-worth and say I want unpopular 1980s ‘comedy’ double-act Cannon & Ball as Secretary of State for Defence.

    “Shall we blow up the world with nuclear bombs, Tommy?”
    “Don’t be bloody daft, Bobby!”
    “What ‘ave you done?”
    “Erm … I’ve accidentally pushed the bomb button, Tommy!”
    “You stupid … quick! Let’s get in the bomb shelter!”

    i dunno Nappers, BMTV has suddenly gone over all serious like.

    Glad you got us back on track. Nice one for C&B – could we make the Chuckle Bros. Chancellors? I’d love to see them delegate the budget:
    “To me!”
    “To you!”
