Yesterday was a crazy day. Football aside for one minute, and the elections kept us all entertained for the evening. The dilemma, of course, was who the hell to vote for… and an even bigger dilemma – could I really figure it out all in one day and then make an educated decision. Well, no. It was too much. Too many people telling me too many stores. People saying “if you vote Tory, they will plunge the country further into recession” and others saying “if you vote Labour, they will plunge the country further into recession” and other saying… Okay, you get my drift.
But then I thought, wow, who would I want to vote for? Who has the ability to get out of debt, make profit, get kids into work, help educate them, building a community… you see where I’m going with this… and in the end…
I voted Arsene Wenger…
It wasn’t easy and I spent the better half of the evening persuading some random guy at the polling station that I could vote for Arsene Wenger! I kind of had to explain how and why people should be voting Arsene Wenger…
Arsene, being an economist by education, has shown in his work at Arsenal and the ability to move into the stadium whilst managing the debt. He will be able to manage the UK debt, whilst reducing the national debt. He will not stand for the fake economies that the world banks have created and he will rectify the influx of money creation. He has always shown his dislike for inflated economies, such as those you see in Chelsea and Manchester City and it’s a parallel to what the big banks have done. In addition, he wouldn’t stand for unmanageable debts that you see at Liverpool and Manchester United in the hope of a knight in shining armour coming in and saving them. The financial aspect down at the Grove is the most manageable debt and the progress of the debt is way ahead of schedule.
Arsene key focus since his tenure at Arsenal has been the team. No one person is bigger than the club and he has successfully created a mental strength and a great unity. The club has focused acutely on the community, and putting back time and money back into the local area. This passion is second to none, and regular visits to hospitals and the supporting of major charities has been a key part of what Arsenal is all about. The club is structured to ensure that families can all come to watch game with a dedicated family enclosure and an excellent Junior Gunner scheme. Arsene knows how important the family nucleus is and that is what his team represents.
Tax is an interesting area and this can portrayed in a similar fashion to how we pay for our season tickets and come down to the Emirates. With ticket prices being held at the same value for the last 4 years, Arsene can understand that the taxes or levies should be proportionate to a) the performance of the club (i.e. the performance of the government) and b) the economic climate surrounding the state. If the UK are in recession, then financial changes have to be made, and despite rising inflation, the frozen ticket prices express both aspects.
Arsene is a fan of being part of Europe, but does not want the club (or country) to be governed by Europe. He believes in the ideology that people should be determined by their value, their skillset and what they can do, rather than the nationality of their passport and this means continued trade with Europe, whilst keeping it’s own governance. Fighting for the title is always the priority and this resembles the national and patriot essence. Europe is an important aspect, but is of secondary importance.
Finally, looking at the other candidates, a certain Alex Ferguson relying on the old guard and plunging the country into unknown levels of debts. Rafa Benetiz spending the treasury on random assets with no sell on value and thus devaluing the county… Mancini trying to fight on all fronts, but with no passion and no desire… Ancellotti inheriting the financial institution and maintaining status quo, but with an expensively assembled manifesto…
So, if all the football managers in the Premier League were standing for Prime Minister, who do you think would be best suited?
