LETTERS - Big society can work

Hear ye! Hear ye! Hear ye!

We, the Labour front benchers are totally opposed to the ‘Big Society’, as this will infringe all union rules, the main rule being one man, one job. Working together in one common cause is not on.

Our proposal was, and still is, a ‘Big Cultural Society’, with the training and refinement of mind, tastes and manners.

The condition of being thus trained and refined.

We know this, in the last 13 years, had cost billions in borrowed money, but what the heck, the few million that are now out of work need somewhere to go, the museums, arenas etc, the flood defences can wait til we’ve built the public baths.

I do believe the last Labour government thought that everyone should appreciate the arts, result is, we are now seeing the horrors of some modern art and the ‘carbuncles’ of some architecture. Were we being taken back to medieval times when people worshipped monstrous shaped figures and believed in witchcraft, and the chant was “Oh! What tangled webs we weave, when once we practice to deceive.”

Did the last government succeed? For now they are in complete denial as to where all the borrowed money has gone, or how to get it back. Was this an illusion or trick or treat?

Is it that they now expect poor Baron-David-Cameron-Hard-Up to call upon Merlin the Magician to perform the trick, or even King Midas.

Will Baron Hard Up persuade the ‘cultural society’ to help keep the wolf from ‘Red Riding Hood’s’ door or even allow the babes to sleep in the wood? Is it possible that the ‘Big Society; may help? If they ‘work’ together, yes!
