General election service

Well it seems like its on.

In a way this is very much a New Labour dissolution of parliament in that all the details seem to have been leaked before hand, with their characteristic disregard for our Monarch. Details of the starting statements of all three political leaders are in the public domain.

Call me old fashioned but I'll be adjusting my election clock ( one of the first, if not the first, in the blogsphere I might add ) once our sovereign has indicated her permission for parliament to be dissolved.

There's going to be frantic activity by online activists. The poster wars have already shown that.

However I know few people change their minds by reading a blog, and many people read blogs to pick up an individual view point. So I'll try to remember that fact and provide it.

The caveat will of course be that I'm a paid up Conservative - if you want to read attack on Tory policy and spin etc you'll need to head elsewhere.

I'll see what I can do to bring any ground truth information I can find.

And of course finally this is a very important general election for me. I've been set against the Labour government and specifically Gordon Brown for many years. I am one of the first to have called Gordon Brown a liar and I despair of the Liberal Democrats potentially keeping him in power.

For my nation I hope and pray for a Conservative victory with a working majority that will allow the damage Labour and the liberal establishment have inflicted on our country to be reversed.

England will fair badly out of this election. The main stream media will ignore us, the politicians will say the NHS and education when they mean the English NHS and English education. Quite frankly this is not our time, those of us who believe that England deserves the same status as the other home nations will need to work harder during the next parliament to get the issue up the agenda.

The next few weeks will be exhausting. The next few years almost terrifying ( whom ever wins - that's what the figures say, but this message hasn't really sunk in yet ).

I will do my best to share my perspective and thoughts with the stated caveats, bearing in mind that many of my readers take differing views.

I hope our nation will have a good debate and that reasoned decisions will be made in the ballot booth. I will campaign for that result to be a Conservative victory, but try to remember that everyone's going to have had their fill of media polished propaganda on the airwaves already.

Good luck everyone and I hope were all still on good terms by 7th of May.

Update: 29 days to go !

"I hope our nation will have a good debate"

From what we've seen so far, it will be one almighty mud-slinging contest.

I honestly think that this will be the worst type gutter politics that you can imagine, and our country will be the worst for it.

I hate Brown. I once said at a party (when admittedly I had downed a few) that if you gave me a gun and a royal pardon, I would shoot the bugger.

It's a fine line, but I think that Cameron needs to use the televised debates to make him lose his temper. If he can do this, then he will go down about as well as Kinnock did at that fateful election eve rally all those years ago.

I try and walk a balanced line on my blog (http://dioclese.blogspot.com) but let's be honest, it ain't easy.

Five more years of Brown - no thanks!!
