Question Time : Mrs Church Goes Paxo

“You have to sit on the phone for three hours in the morning trying to get an appointment because you are not allowed to ask for the appointment before that, because by making it 48 hours beforehand they are missing the Government target.” Mrs Church wasn’t the only source of trouble for Mr Blair, as the programme went off air part of the audience started chanting “Tony Blair – Liar” whilst Blair tried to placate them with security guards getting nervous enough to whisk him out the side exit.

Issues that Matter, the Booing

This part of the blogosphere never shirks from covering the issues that really matter in this campaign, so once again Guido returns to the issue of the schoolkids booing Blair at the Lillian Bayliss School’s education campaign launch. Much argument centres on whether it was booing or as New Labour spins – “booming”. The video suggests that not only was there booing, but jeering and wolf whistles. Yet many comments on previous posts seem to be Blairites who are in denial.

A source close to those booing schoolchildren tells me they also sang: ‘Mr Blair, we don’t care, you’re wearing Cherie’s underwear’ until they were made to stop. Spin on that…

Thatcher Leaves UK

The Times reports that Maggie is depressed at the prospect of a third Labour victory in a row and has left the country after failing to take part in a general election campaign for the first time in 70 years. “She wants to see a Conservative government again. She is frustrated that is not going to happen, despite the Labour Government’s serious shortcomings and all Tony Blair’s lies.”

The depressing prospect of however many years of Blair followed by Prime Minister Brown and his dour Scottish socialism fills many with dread.

Guido wants to leave the country as well…

Paddy Power Says "Its All Over", Paying Out Labour Bets

Paddy Power are paying out straight Labour to Win bets already placed.
Fruits of Your Labour!
Labour swept the board in the last General election and we’re expecting more of the same this time round. Therefore we’re paying out on all bets on Labour to win the General Election with still 7 days to go until polling day!

Lynton would be pleased except for one thing, the Tories are actually going to lose.

MG Ooops

Tucked away inside the Labour business manifesto, is the commitment to
“Introduce a new award for Phoenix Entrepreneurs to encourage positive public recognition for individuals whose first business did not succeed but who have come back, worked hard and built successful enterprises.”

Given the recent demise of Phoenix MG Rover, surely their choice of words is more than a trifle insensitive?

You Can’t Fool All of the People All of the Time

Q. Is Tony Blair a liar?

When ICM asked, 44% of all voters agreed that he was, two-thirds of Conservative voters saw him as a liar, half of all Liberal Democrat voters and even a fifth of Labour voters think he is a liar.
Gordon Brown, however, told reporters this morning that the entire cabinet had numerous discussions on Iraq, with numerous documents to consult, including the Blix report, the Jack Straw document, the six-point initiative, a legal document on the use of force “in addition to” the attorney general’s one-page advice. “I not only trust Tony Blair but I respect Tony Blair for the way he went about that decision,” he bullshitted.

What I Say "Three Times Is True"
