A decade of this shower

Crushed by Ingsoc is perturbed to reflect that we well soon have had ten years of this sorry excuse of a government which partly inspires the name we live under here.
Partly I think where the hell has it all gone?
Ten years!
Crushed by Ingsoc was a young idealist then.
I can remember when the ten percent swing came up at Sunderland South. 'That's got to be a freak result.' said the all confident Crushed by Ingsoc.
Was I up for Portillo?
Was I stoned by that time?
Enfield Southgate? Hove? Hastings and Rye?
It was a new world we woke up to the following day.
And it hasn't turned out to be a very nice one. Spin, surveillance, sleaze, that's what you've given us Tony. Touchy feely froth to lull us to sleep while you turn us in to grateful wage slaves bowing to the corporate totems.
So you signed us up to the Social chapter? Whohooo! That's really made the lives of working people better.
Minimum wage? Paper boys were paid that anyway.
Oh- Constitutional reform.
Yes Tony, but ten years on, you still don't know what you're doing with the Lords and Scotland's probably about to leave us completely.
That all panned out well didn't it?
ID cards, National DNA database, Regional Police forces- a relentless march towards Big Brother watching.
And I'm not even mentioning the 'I' word.
Tony, forget your legacy, you ain't got one- not one you want us to remember.
