stallion Hull Shanty Festival 2012 (112* d) RE: Hull Shanty Festival 2012 25 Aug 12

so what happened then, are the council officers and local politicians slapping themselves on the back and saying "we done it" or are they claiming, like scarborough have done with Apollo leisure, that the events company sub contracted to run the event have made a mess of things? It is becoming more apparent that these sort of arrangements are to ensure the shit doesn't stick and jeopardise the local councillors electability and reap the electoral rewards of success. God, politics don't you just hate it..............................I can see it now......the conversation twixt politician and political statistician/adviser...."er if I say something that appeals to rapists and homophobics will it lose me more votes that it gets me"..."hell no sir you have already pissed the women off with with your stance on abortion, you pissed the homos of when you voted against gay marriage, it has to be a vote winner"....."er, what about the decent upstanding people?"..."maybe we come from the angle that rape in marriage is ok because that's what the wives sign up for, right?.......and if you have spent a pile of money on a date, then you've paid for it so technically it isn't rape'...."can I really run with that.....better work on a redaction speech just in case it goes tits up"..."better still, endorse a group that promotes the values we think will get us votes and if the shit hits the fan we can deny any knowledge of these policies and sack an intern for signing you up to it........a teflon strategy!"
