Responsible department: Ministry of Justice
So, this is what happened to the respect agenda.
If you live in the Outer Hebrides, you don’t have running water or electricity. To save the English government money their rioters can be sent to OUR islands and to hell with the people who actually live there.
Respect my butt.
So the English government has been forced to apologise to us as this petition was actually published on one of their web sites.
Not unsurprisingly Angus MacNeil MP for Na h-Eileanan an Iar is ever so slightly miffed. He suggested that the petitioner might do well to visit the islands, then he might see that a visit there would not be a punishment, but a treat.
According to the English government’s website an e-petition (another of Cameron’s ill-thought-out gimmicks) can be rejected if it contains libellous, false or, defamatory statements or, if it contains offensive, joke or nonsense content. Angus says that the e-petition falls into this category and that he intends to pursue this with the English Ministry of Injustice. I wish him luck.
What kind of ignorant half wit thinks there is no electricity and no running water on our islands?
Does no one in the English government know or care about the fact that tourism is big business hereabouts? First we have riots, which are reported as being all over the UK and people are cancelling holidays and breaks, and now we apparently live like savages without any of the comforts of “English life”. Does anyone still want to come here?
The sooner we have nothing more to do with the English government the better. Idiots!
