Staggering Sillyness from Macintyre

The New Statesman is running an implausible story that relations between Dave and Boris are ‘at breaking point’. Predictably, it’s written by James Macintyre.  Silly season must have started before recess for him.

How can we take seriously anything that comes from James Macintyre? He was already under suspicion of being a willing conduit for Labour spin inventions after he reported – unsourced – a claim that Obama thought Cameron was a “lightweight” – a story that Guido knows to be an invention.  Ask yourself – does young Macintyre really have Whitehouse contacts that would provide him with that kind of insight – if it were genuine?  His journalistic credibity vanished altogether when his email exchanges with Derek Draper were made public in Private Eye. They revealed Macintyre’s desperate disappointment at not becoming a Labour SpAd for Ed Miliband. Wily Draper played his former intimate, young James, like a sucker and “borrowed” several thousand quid from him to boot. Gullible Macintyre remains owed the money.

Macintyre has no Tory contacts at a senior level around Boris or Dave, this will within ten months prove something of a career crippling problem for the political editor of a serious political weekly. In view of Macintyre’s latest spin invention, we can safely assume he’s back on the hunt for a government job.

UPDATE : Boris has publicly called the story piffle. A source not a million miles from Cameron’s office was (via email) scathing about Macintyre after this story went up. Boy Macintyre himself has been in touch to complain that he didn’t claim his source for his “Obama thinks Cameron is a lightweight” story was Whitehouse, it was apparently a “diplomatic source”. It was transparent spin is what it was.

          Prison awaits Obama says:

          Obama WILL be Impeached

          The result of the court case below means that Obama and his legal team have virtually surrendered – all they can do is rely on the judges blocking the cases, but the judges cannot do that forever.

          More and more people will be issuing writs refusing presidential orders – until the point that Obama either throws in the towel or impeachment begins.

          Obama has become the most succesful con man in history, a con man whose entire political life was based on lies.

          His most succesful lie was where he was born – he used it to claim Natural Born Citizenship and a right to stand for president, when he was in the exact same position as Arnold Schwarzeneger in that Arnie caanot stand for President as he is a Citizen of the US but not a Natural Born Citizen.

          Therefore both Obama and Arnie are unable to be presidents of the US under the terms of the US constitution.

          The failure to prove that the president occupies his position lawfully as in this case shows us that, just as in the case of the law to allow income tax for workers, there is no law.

          This is just another example of tyranny.

          Add to the issue the fact that Obama and his legal team allowed fake documents to be printed and circulated to act as his birth certificate, then this shows that not only is the president illegal but he is probably being blackmalied by those who printed and supplied the fake birth certificates.

          Therefore America is in the worst of all positions – it has a usurper as a president who is controlled by the criminals and blackmailers who got him into power.

          America is now Zimbabwe.

          The only thing that will stop Obama being impeached if is the US is declared by him as to be in a state of emergency and all civil laws suspended, such as a court case to get him out.

          Therefore expect as these writs get closer to revealing the lies that got him elected, then expect the most destructive terrorist act in American history on US soil to happen, a war against Iran that quickly escelates into a massive Middle East conflict or some other ‘false flag’ operation related to terrorism to begin to impact upon the US which will allow the government to declare martial law.

          WAR IS OVER! If you want it

          by Rod Ciferri
          That’s right; the war is over due to the courageous act of one Major Stefan Frederick Cook, United States Army Reserve, who recently challenged an Army order to deploy to Afghanistan on the grounds that they could not lawfully order him to deploy.

          Since the Army has only that authority given to it by the President, and, since Obama himself must possess the authority of President in order to delegate it to the Army, Major Cook believes Obama must prove he has such authority before he may lawfully comply with an Army order to deploy.

          Now, you may have heard of the controversy surrounding de facto President Obama’s eligibility to run for President. It has been the basis for over a dozen lawsuits, all of which have been dismissed, mostly because the courts have found the suits to concern “political questions”, the usual cop-out they use when they have a case that poses a constitutional controversy they’d rather not deal with. Perhaps you have just dismissed the claims that Obama is not a “natural born citizen” outright since the various lawsuits have not made it to first base.

          Due to the actions of Cook, however, it’s becoming obvious that Obama is hiding something.

          What he is hiding may contain the key that unlocks the door to peace for as long “President” Obama remains in “office”. After Cook commenced his lawsuit, the U.S. Army revoked their order to deploy him. Moreover, as of this date, Cook has not been discharged from the Army.

          Why has the U.S. Army revoked his order to deploy? Why have they not just commenced court martial proceedings to send him to Leavenworth, as is their habit when a soldier refuses deployment? The answer is the lawsuit.

          The lawsuit would open up a can of worms in civilian court that would require looking into Obama’s eligibility for the office of U.S. President in order to resolve it.

          Major Cook filed the suit with the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia. In the suit, he sought an injunction to stay the deployment order and declatory judgment stating he has conscientious objector status based on his belief that Obama is not a “natural born” citizen and is therefore ineligible to serve as president, such declatory judgment to be effective until such time that Obama’s eligibility is proven by clear and convincing evidence.

          After the revocation of the order to deploy, Judge Clay Land sided with the defense, finding Cook’s suit “moot” in that he already has been told he doesn’t have to go to Afghanistan, eliminating his need for relief from the court. ”Federal court only has authority of actual cases and controversies,” Judge Land said according to the Miami Herald. “The entire action is dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.”

          Therefore, the U.S. government has signaled it would rather not take up the issue since their boss would have to finally come clean and present clear and convincing evidence of his status of “natural born citizen”. However, the actions of the U.S. government make it seem that he likely wasn’t, and they are willing to give an “out” to any soldier who follows the footsteps of Major Cook in order to not have to deal with such a troublesome fact.

          Cook’s attorney, Orly Taitz, argues Obama not only must have been born in this country to be a natural born citizen, in addition, his father must also have been a citizen at the time of Obama’s birth, not owing allegiance to any foreign state. However, it appears that his father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., was, at the time of Obama’s birth, a Subject of the British Commonwealth via the then British colony, Kenya, having been born there. Therefore, Obama is ineligible for the office of President.

          The key to the legal analysis is that the legal term of art, “natural born citizen”, could only have been defined by the Law of Nations, relied upon by the creators of the constitution in their intended meaning when they used the term in the eligibility requirements of article II, section 1 of the constitution, and which defined it as stated above. It could only have such definition since, at the time of the creators of the constitution, the term “natural born citizen” was only defined in the “Law of Nations”, by the French jurist, Vattel, in 1758, at chapter XIX, sec. 212.

          Since there exists no amendment to the constitution that has altered the meaning of the term “natural born citizen”, or the requirement that a candidate for the office of President be one, Barack Obama was never eligible to hold such office.

          According to Taitz, if a legitimate long form certificate of live birth was released by Obama it would lay to rest doubt about whether he was born in the United States, but, it may still kill his eligibility for the office of President, since it would also show that his father was not a citizen.

          In the meantime, Obama’s status as a natural born citizen remains unclear. However, all the soldiers out there who thought they were in a “catch 22″ and didn’t think there was a way to not fight an immoral and illegal war, here’s your chance to opt out legally, and maybe actually still get paid. Hey, its got to be better scrubbing toilets all day then killing people to support Obama’s corporate bosses.

          So, for any soldier who has the guts to do it, following Major Cook’s example may end the war for them. War will never end until the soldiers refuse to fire their weapons. Up until now, that has meant possible imprisonment and loss of a paycheck.

          Major Cook’s heroic effort has changed that and simultaneously opened up the possibility of world peace, that’s likely to be regarded in history as even more instrumental to ending the Iraq/Afghanistan war than the tet offensive was to ending the Vietnam war.

          For those who want to learn more about the Obama eligibility controversy, a good place to start is World Net Daily and the website of Major Cook’s lawyer, Orly Taitz.

          DJ Savage has incriminating evidince against Labour says:

          Secret Government documents have revealed that American talk show host Michael Savage was only included in a British government ‘banned list’ because it was dominated by Muslims.

          The documents have been made public as part of the discovery process in Mr Savage’s ongoing £100,000 libel case against former Home Secretary Jacqui “I never ran anything before the Home Office” Smith.

          The official correspondence, released under the Freedom of Information Act, has revealed that Mr Savage’s name was placed on a list of people banned from Britain only to provide “balance” and that officials specifically warned the Government that it could be accused of being “duplicitous” by including his name.

          Referring to Mr Savage by his real name of Weiner, one of the email messages, dated 27 November 2008, from an unnamed Home Office official, says, “with Weiner, I can understand that disclosure of the decision would help provide a balance of types of exclusion cases.

          “We will want to ensure that the names disclosed reflect the broad range of cases and are not all Islamic extremists.”

          A further email confirmed the decision was approved at the highest level of Government, saying: “HO [Home Office] intend to include Weiner in their quarterly stats… Both the FS [Foreign Secretary] and PM [Prime Minister] are firmly behind listing and naming such people.”

          One civil servant counselled caution, saying: “I think we could be accused of duplicity in naming him” and helpfully added that “the fact that he is homophobic does help.”

          Mr Savage had earlier accused Ms Smith of having plucked his name out of a hat because he was “controversial and white.” These latest revelations add weight to that charge.

          Speaking to the World Net Daily news service, Mr Savage said it was now obvious that the Home Office chose him to balance the list of Muslim extremists because he is Jewish.

          “The name Dreyfus comes to mind. They have attempted to destroy my reputation to avoid offending those Muslims who want to destroy them! The Warsaw ghetto comes to mind, where some Jews threw other Jews into Gestapo hands to live another day,” he said.

          “Make no mistake about this — they ‘chose’ me because I am the only talker in the top five who is Jewish! The old anti-Semitic strain has resurfaced in England, not among the right wing, but on the socialist left. This should galvanize every member of the U.S. media, but will it?”

          Mr Savage said his message for Ms Smith and the people of the UK was, “Shame on you. Shame that you’ve fallen to such a low level.”

          “It’s interesting to me that here I am a talk show host, who does not advocate violence, who advocates patriotic traditional values — borders, language, culture — who is now on a list banned in England,” he said. “What does that say about the government of England? It says more about them than it says about me.”

          ban, prison, what next death penalty? you are no better than Hitler or Stalin.

Using anti free speech laws you are clearly so fond of.

          Consider that a ban? or is it only whites you feel should be prosecuted for race hate in you hypocritical tiny mind?

          As for the moron who `claims` Obama was born in Hawaii, don’t tell me you were there! clearly you must be a witness to the event to make such claims as no one else has seen any evidence other than a few badly faked bits of tat that floated around for a short while until they were exposed and laughed at.

          So that’s just fine then. There is not going to be a NWO, because you say there is not going to be one. Wow I was getting a bit concerned there for a while.

          Those so called right wing sites you mention, are simply controlled by the same powers that all of the rest of the MSM are. Big money talks, and the biggest of all amounts of money talks by far the loudest, and can permanently shut you and me up in a heart beat.

          This has nothing to do with right or left. This is finally in your face FASCISM. Which as you should know, is the worst possible combination of both EXTREME right and EXTREME left. Which is also a thing that virtually no one wants and as good as no one would ever have voted for.

          I do not profess to know the details of future events. Unlike Alex Jones I do not have a Crystal Ball. I only know what is plainly sitting in my own living room, which is the biggest elephant I have ever clapped eyes on.

          Aarrrrgghhhh! An invasion of conspiracy loons.

          One of the oddest things about people who reach for their conspiracy theory (a bit like 19th century women reaching for their smelling salts) is their lack of scepticism. Yes, they are (rightly) sceptical of official explanations, but they then fail to apply that same level of scepticism to the conspiracy theory de jour.

          Conspiracy theory is a substitute for religion. Psychologically mankind tends to need certainty. With the death of religion, and even the death of its first substitute, ideology, conspiracy theory is the third best option.

          You can easily see the symptoms: the cosy feeling of belonging to the select few in the know; scepticism to everything except their own theory; the religious certainty; the irrational hostility to the great unwashed or even rival conpiracy theories; and brushing off inconvenient facts.

          It’s the same mentality that drove religions and ideologies like Facism and Marxism in the past. You are either one of us, or you are against us.

      If Labour can develop positive consensus and a better appreciation of the short versus long-term, cause and effect mechanisms, and how continuing to develop the “Brown Plan” will create a better alternative then “frustration” and “anger” will give way to happiness and contentment.

      I commented a long time ago that people are angry merely because they are angry. Given a generation of fear and greed, it’s not surprising that people lack the vision and tools to get over themselves, but as we move forward this will change and perspectives will change accordingly.

      As more enlightened political parties, media, and businesses begin to “get it” the entities that don’t make this leap will find themselves in the trailing third of the population as the power dynamic begins to shift. They know this which is why some are kicking and screaming so much.

      The future is innovation and society built for the long-term, and by focusing on developing ordinary peoples success and communities in a lasting way Labour will help secure the general election. Regressive forces will fight this every inch of the way but you can’t fight reality. Give up. Let go.

      “…after he reported – unsourced – a claim that Obama thought Cameron was a “lightweight” – a story that Guido knows to be an invention.”

      Even so, it is near certain that a Conservative Party with Call Me Dave shall win the 2010 General Election, and presumably, gain at least a second term, from perhaps 2013/2014.

      If amidst the voluptuous opulence of your French chateau Guido, you examined American news, you’ll see the unending disasters and disgraces of the present government and the growing likelihood of the incumbent’s overthrow in 2012. His control over the Congress will probably be extinguished, or embarrassingly impaired, by Democratic party defeats next year. Whether he esteemed or despised Cameron will become inconsequential as his administraton will soon be humiliated, powerless, then deposed.

      America and Britain are stalwart friends, but different. You can’t socialise a nation of 305 million people and many millions of sqaure miles who enjoy, and wantonly indulge, the boons of having the greatest wealth, cultural influence, intellectual achievements and domestic comforts in history.

        Are you mad? Obama is politically closer to Cameron than Gordon Brown and those on the left of the Democratic Party (who would still be Liberal Democrats / Tory wets if they were in UK) have not forgiven “New Labour” for not only supporting Bush and his illegal Iraq war but for making the case for it in Congress.

        Congress may have applauded Brown when he was going on about how wonderful America was – but on every other issue – they remained steadfastly silent.

        As for Congressional Elections, they will retain a House majority (bit much smaller) however Congress is likely to result in more Democratic seats as the seats coming up for election in 2010 are the ones elected in 2004, the last year that Bush did well in.

        My silly week post has been moderated on here.
        Oh, the ignominy!

        In other news Gordon Brown is taking a short holiday before returning to “Get on with the job”
        He told reporters
        “Up to now we have just been sitting around, claiming expenses and generally buggering about. But after 12 years I have decided its time for the Labour party to start getting on with it”

        This latest re-launch, number 31 since 2007, is being hailed as the final chance for the failure Prime minister to turn things around.

        Alan Johnson, seen as a rival for the top job commented..
        “I couldn’t give a shit any more. I mean, what’s the point.? Seriously, you tell me? I can’t even be arsed to pretend we have any ideas. All we can do is fuck it up as much as possible for the next lot. I’m cutting lending for students loans so the universities collapse, adding another 30,000 security guards to the Olympics to ramp up that white elephant’s costs, then Mandy wants me to start road pricing on all roads from 1st June 2010 at £7.00/mile. Finally, next May, we are going to piss in the whisky bottles and wipe our arses on the curtains before leaving forever.”

        We asked Lord Mandelson about this statement and he replied

        Economic crisis? I thought Gordon Brown abolished boom and bust?

        Seriously though, what planet are you on? The Iron Chancellor splashed money on the NHS, education, university places for all (well, 50 per cent). You’re nodding your head because you think this kind of spending was a good idea. But he also spent money on the Olympics and the Millennium Dome. Bit of doubt creeping in yet? OK, let’s try the big cash-guzzlers: two wars and Trident. Still happy?

        Being “prudent” as he liked to claim he was, involves NOT spending money on things. At least, not spending money on something. For a decade, everything was the priority and every request for money was met with a smug “I’m the Chancellor who can ignore financial reality”. Quite simply, Gordon Brown splashed the cash on absolutely everything. And now there’s an economic crisis, we’re all supposed to pretend the unprecedented spending had nothing to do with it. The whole thing started in America.

        The reason you want to talk about Gordon Brown’s RESPONSE to the economic crisis is that you are in denial about the elephant in the room. Gordon Brown partly CAUSED the economic crisis.

    Alistair Darling has warned the UK’s banks that he will take action if they are found to be charging small and medium-sized firms too much for loans.

    So let me understand, banks almost bring the economy to collapse by underpricing risk and charging too low a rate of interest on their loans – thus creating a credit fuelled bubble unconstrained by a supine regulator and encouraged by a mendacious Chancellor.

    Obvious solution, threaten them with government action when they try to raise interest rates in order to protect their solvency. Oh, and do this whilst we’re trying to bolster their value in order to flog off the state shareholdings in Lloyds, RBS et al.

      The contradiction of New Labour writ large.
      They rely on the banks to bring in billions in tax revenue.
      Yet the banks need to make a profit.
      Socialists want their supporters to believe that they can get banks to make just a few pence profit a year and treat their customers as if they were operating a charity rather than a business.

      The government is desperate to revive the financial sector as quickly as possible. that’s why Gordo put in no meaningful new regulations, no real changes to the Sweet FSA. He needs those capital gains taxes and needs the housing boom stamp duties to fill his bottomless pockets.

      The financial sector can create money out of nothing.If he and Darling just keep making noises about getting tough, reining back, but actually do nothing at all they can get back some cash back into those empty Treasury coffers in time for the election of 2010. No wonder Gordon loves them so.

      If folks are doing a great job and feel as if they’re part of something, they tend to be well motivated and less prone to bitching, and that’s good for management and the bottom line. The Tories don’t get this which is why they are the party of failure.

    The Tories created the foundation for boom and bust, and fought change all the way down the line until the inevitable crisis. In government and opposition they’ve been a regressive force. Their “solution” to Turbo Capitalism is Turbo-Thatcherism which like some alcy sucking the whiskey bottle dry after a period of abstinence.

    If you unpick bad management and greedy shareholders, the issue isn’t necessarily regulation but attitude. This is true for any job, task, or person. Their attitude has been very resistant to change. The problem you and a few others have is I don’t think you appreciate how difficult it is going up against power and affiliations: people don’t just roll over.

    Gordon Brown and some of the more savvy businessmen, financiers, and journalists get this subtlety. If you just cut folks down you end up with an Iraq situation. It’s better to identify the better managers and investors and promote them, and engage with and negotiate over time to bring around lasting change. Compare that to the Tories trying to sell you gold bricks for a fiver. It ain’t real.

      The cycle of boom and bust has nothing to do with “turbo capitalism” of the free market (even if we had one). It’s due to our debt based monetary system, fractional reserve banking and the manipulation of money and credit by central bankers. But we aren’t allowed to rock the boat on monetary policy that would REALLY upset the bankers wouldn’t it? Labour bail out the banks, and the Tories want to hand even more power to the Bank of England. Quite a nice arrangement for the bankers isn’t it?

      Uh-huh, and this is the best socialists can come up with after 12 years of a Labour government that’s left Britain one and a half trillion pounds in debt?

      “It was all the fault of those tories who were in power back in the mid 90s – we tried to undo their damage, but we were too involved in selling half the nation’s gold at the bottom of the market, plundering our globally-envied pension schemes of one hundred billion pounds – rendering them worthless – and starting our illegal war against Iraq to really concentrate on ending the cycle of boom and bust (the one Gordon had claimed to have ended). Still, give us another term and we’ll end the cycle, comrade.”

    A generation of fear and greed has touched everyone and left them with ambitions and personality defects that are probably best dropped. By seizing the opportunity in the disaster Gordon Brown has helped refocus and reenergise Britain so business, finance, and the people can begin developing along better and more successful lines. If folks were open, fair, and less impatient they might appreciate the benefits and not be such losers about things.

    Calm down. Relax. Be happy.

      Money money money - tax it! says:

      Imagine saving for a pension, then along comes New Labour in 1997. Gordon Brown in a genius move to please all the benefit scroungers and to please the Labour ‘politics of envy’ party, launches a £5bn/year raid on private pensions (public sector unaffected thanks to taxpayer cash / tax rises). The Labour MP’s backed the move, didn’t say a word against it. To add insult to injury, companies like Equitable Life (often mentioned in Prime Minsters’ Questions) steal even more of your pension pot.

      To put it another way, imagine you saved £10,000 for a private pension, then along comes Gordon, and combined with your pension company steal £7,000 of your money, leaving your pension with only £3,000 instead of £10,000.

      This HAS occurred under New Labour, and they didn’t do a damn thing to stop it, because the money went to buy the votes of the benefit scroungers and illegal immigrants that STILL gather in Calais for a free ticket to Benefit Nirvana UK.

      New Labour’s policy is to get as many people as possible to be wedded to the state, so they can be controlled. Hence the one million non-jobs Gordon created in the public sector. State dependency buys your votes.

      The UK has now the WORST pension system in Europe, probably the G20, all thanks to New Labour.

        I quite agree – but the situation is even worse for people who tried to do the right think and prudently save for their old age. With quantitative easing the return on gilts has been diminished which means an even smaller income from annuities on the pension capital that savers have built up.

        The destruction of people’s pensions has occurred over the past twelve years but of course does not affect public sector employees pensions which the tax payer subsidises.

        Liebore’s policy has bee to support the feckless and tax the prudent. A fact, I think, the people of Britain are beginning to understand if the election in Norwich North is anything to go by.

          Well I’m taking some time with my quiet friend
          Well I’m takin’ some time on my own.
          Well I’m makin’ some plans for my getaway
          There’ll be blue skies shining up above
          When I’m cloud hidden
          Cloud hidden
          Whereabouts unknown

          Well I’ve got to get out of the rat-race now
          I’m tired of the ways of mice and men
          And the empires all turning into rust again.
          Out of everything nothing remains the same
          That’s why I’m cloud hidden
          Cloud hidden
          Whereabouts unknown

          Bridge
          Sittin’ up on the mountain-top in my solitude
          Where the morning fog comes rollin’ in
          Just might do me some good.

          Well I’m waiting in the clearing with my motor on
          Well it’s time to get back to the town again
          Where the air is sweet and fresh in the countryside
          Well it won’t be long before I’ll be back here again

    Gordon Brown or Gordon the Useless One as he is known by some of his colleagues was looking for a lady of the night.

    He found three such girls in a local pub, a blonde, a brunette and a redhead.

    To the blonde he said, ‘I am the Prime Minister of England. Now how much would it cost me to spend some time with you?’

    She replied, £200.’

    To the brunette he asked the same question.

    Her reply was £100.

    He then asked the redhead

    Her reply was, ‘Mr. Prime Minister, if you can get my skirt up as high as my taxes, my pants as low as my wages, get that thing of yours as hard as the times we are living in, and keep it rising like the price of petrol, keep me warmer than it is in my flat and screw me the way you have Pensioners, then it isn’t going to cost you a bloody penny!’

      The key to beating the recession is to invest in new products and keep staff. The Tories don’t get that stimulating demand and expanding employment is the way forward. Cutting interest rates just fuels the perception of decline when people need to be incentivised. How about putting the fear of God into employers by putting interest rates up for every 10,000 increase in the unemployment figures?

Just as Britian has reached a point where it could catapult forward the same asset stripping and financial engineering Tories are rising up to misrepresent themselves as the solution to problems they caused and sustained.

    Britain needs to develop a better sense of looking forward, cooperation, and getting over its quarter to quarter mentality.

      “GMTV presenter Kate Garraway, 42, lives in north London with her psychotherapist husband, Derek Draper, and their three-year-old daughter, Darcey. Kate is about to give birth to her second child. She says:

      Snuggling up on the sofa in front of the TV in my pyjamas after a long, hot bath, with a plate of bangers and mash, is my idea of heaven. TV to me is a real treat – I think it stems from when I was a child, and children’s TV was only on for about two hours a day and we’d always be pleading, ‘Mum, can we watch it?’

      I often watch TV in the afternoon and early evening, because, when I’m working, I have to be in bed by half past eight, to get up at 2.45 the following morning. So day became night, really. I love easy-watching TV when I am tired – like Poirot or Murder, She Wrote – programmes that won’t tax me too much or disturb me. I do like a happy ending.

      ‘I love cooking comfort food, so my TV dinner would be either bangers and mash or cottage pie, which I adore’

      I studied English literature at university, so books to me still smack of work, unless I’m lying on a beach on holiday. Derek likes to curl up with a book to relax, so I drive him mad by putting the TV on in our living room. I have to admit to being a bit of a TV addict – it’s my ‘me’ time, when I put my feet up.

      Derek does the early shift with Darcey when I’m working, and then I look after her in the afternoons, but I have three friends and neighbours who help out. Darcey is always off out somewhere – music club, ballet and nursery – so I take the opportunity to relax before she comes home for bed. We try to get her in bed by 8pm, and then Derek and I follow shortly afterwards.

      I love cooking comfort food, so my TV dinner would be either bangers and mash or cottage pie, which I adore. For a snack, I’ll have a steaming mug of tea and a chocolate biscuit to dunk. I enjoy watching films on DVD, but I think you have to give your full attention to a film and it takes the whole evening, and I don’t have the time. I like halfhour quiz shows you can dip in and out of, such as QI and 8 Out Of 10 Cats, and reruns of classic American comedies. I like a laugh.

      My parents used to be obsessed with natural history programmes, so I used to avoid them. But I am now starting to watch them – maybe it’s a sign of age. Darcey and I watch TV together too. She loves Dora The Explorer and Tom And Jerry. We have a television in our bedroom, and sometimes I’ll put it on before I drift off to sleep, while Derek reads. I’ve learned to sleep with the light on so that he can carry on with his book.

      My colleagues at GMTV have been saying, now I’m on maternity leave, ‘You can go home and rest.’ Rest? I have two weeks before I give birth, and then I am going to be up three, four times in the night with a new baby. Very exciting, but exhausting, too. I think my telly watching days are about to be severely curtailed. Until now, we’ve managed without a nanny, with the help of friends, and our lovely in-laws and my parents, but we may have to think again with two children.”

          There’s a lot of cliche and handwaving in here. From a Zen Buddhist perspective it’s quite funny seeing people gnash their teeth over policy and perform to the partisan gallery, as if it means anything. It’s like watching a baby cry over having a case of wind. People are making an emotional mountain out of a political molehill. It’s just posturing and attention seeking.

    The government has started getting back on its feet regularly over the past year, and each time some loudmouth fires off and has the pundits railing again. So, Labour aren’t doing as badly as some suppose. Most of the froth is just media hype and internet wannabes winding each other up. They’re only doing it cuz they want attention.

    I’ve just been reading a private newsgroup topic where some paranoid was trying to stoke up more fear but this time the reaction was different. Most folks recognised the problem of low level crime like flytipping, and most could see the difference between accountable authority and shysters. It’s not much but it’s useful and shows the government cares.

      Whoops a-daisy, I’ve only gone and done it again FFS!
      I got that last post terribly wrong. I was high on heroin yesterday so please take that in account when reading my comments. Anyway, here is the corrected version:

      The government has been knocked of its feet regularly over the past year, and each time Gordon Brown the loudmouth bully fires off his bullshit and has the dimwitted Labour MP war criminals railing again. Labour are doing far worse than could be imagined. Most of the new labour torture party froth is just media hype and internet wannabes winding each other up. They’re only doing it cuz they want attention.
      That is why I do it anyway.

      I’ve just been reading minutes from the latest cabinet meetings and some paranoid lunatic was trying to stoke up more fear and all the other low calibre individuals in the room agreed. Nobody recognised the problem of conflating low level crime like flytipping and terrorism, and not one member of the cabinet could see the difference between accountable authority and shysters. It’s not much but it’s useful because it shows the government haven’t got a clue about how the voters feel and don’t care either.
      That is why I will not vote for the new labour war party at the next election.
      I could not vote for such a useless self serving party as the new labour war party.
      I will definitely vote for an independent candidate next time round.

    Don’t call me Shirley, says peer

    By Ross Hawkins
    Political correspondent, BBC News

    Home Office minister Lord West has written to a hereditary peer to reassure him will be able to use his full title on his identity card.

    Conservative peer Earl Ferrers was concerned he might simply be named ‘Robert Shirley’ on the card, causing confusion.

    Earlier this month, he told the House of Lords: “If I go to a place overseas and ask to cash a cheque and I am asked my name – Ferrers – and my card says Shirley, that will not marry up.”

    A former Home Office minister himself, Earl Ferrers warned the government this little-discussed issue might become a “big elephant trap”.

    In a letter, Lord West made it clear it would be possible to have the words “the Holder is the Right Honourable Robert Washington Shirley, Earl Ferrers” printed on the back of the card.

    Although he correctly identifies Earl Ferrers’ title, he gets the Tory peers’ forename wrong – repeatedly calling him Richard.

    Earl Ferrers’ first name is Robert.

    Charles. I read this comment with interest.

    If Labour can develop positive consensus and a better appreciation of the short versus long-term, cause and effect mechanisms, and how continuing to develop the “Brown Plan” will create a better alternative then “frustration” and “anger” will give way to happiness and contentment.

    I commented a long time ago that people are angry merely because they are angry. Given a generation of fear and greed, it’s not surprising that people lack the vision and tools to get over themselves, but as we move forward this will change and perspectives will change accordingly.

    As more enlightened political parties, media, and businesses begin to “get it” the entities that don’t make this leap will find themselves in the trailing third of the population as the power dynamic begins to shift. They know this which is why some are kicking and screaming so much.

    The future is innovation and society built for the long-term, and by focusing on developing ordinary peoples success and communities in a lasting way Labour will help secure the general election. Regressive forces will fight this every inch of the way but you can’t fight reality. Give up. Let go.

    Firstly, I would like to clarify one thing.

    I am not merely angry because I am angry. I am angry because Brown has destroyed my pension, taken my job, livelihood and pretty soon, my house. This is not a whim. There are plenty of ordinary people out here in the same boat.

    If Labour can’t secure people’s jobs (which they can’t – and it’s going to get worse) people will beging to lose faith. This isn’t a whim either. It is human nature. If government hits people hard in their pockets, when they are working as hard as they can to keep their heads above water, they are bound to be angry. The reason? Gross government mismanagement.

    I will fight your so-called reality with every breath in my body. I will give up and let go when this bunch of shysters are voted out – and they will be!

      It’s clear just from watching Brown’s body language that he has a grasp of the strategy and the multitude of issues facing people, and a desire to understand how they impacted them on a personal level. In comparison, why are the Tories so full of bragging and insincerity?

      I’ve seen a lot of lies and negativity from the usual quarters but where are the concrete plans and enthusiasm from those who would be king? What job opportunities do they want to create versus cost cutting? What sort of society do they want to build versus self-interest? I see the Prime Minister developing solutions but why are the opposition trying to talk everyone back into their caves?

        Brown’s body language indicates to me that he is a man living on the edge. He is inarticulate, and he stammers a lot. This is not a confident man. In comparison, David Cameron comes across as a man who knows he will win the next election. It doesn’t matter how you dress it up, Charles, this is what will happen.

        The Conservatives do not have to say anything about policies just yet. They are the opposition party. If they show their hand too soon, Labour will just steal it and pass it off as theirs. They’ve done all this before.

        Just let it go.

          Is it not said that it is not the Opposition that win an election, it is the Government that loses it.

          Almost all policies announced by the Tories under Cameron have suddently become Broon’s policies not too long after (IHT reform springs immediately to mind).

          DC will say as little as he can get away with, vague statements of ideals rather than specific policies, until just before the election is called – there is no point in him revealing his hand when his opponent is still to play his turn…

          People talk about Labour as “history”, much as they did in 1979. They were discredited, scorned, and when Foot became leader, the brave new world of Thatcherism, thought that Socialism was finished. But the pendulam swung back, and Labour was reborn with the Blair era. The Tories were “history”. discredited, scorned, and when Hague became leader, the nasty party were finished, or so we were told.
          Will it be the election of 2020 or 2025, that Georgina Gould will be elected as the new, new Labour prime minister, promising to “put Britain first”? Ever get the feeling you’ve been had?

    The more you cling to the poll results the more it will hurt when they swing in a way you don’t like. Really, it’s better just to let go.

    For similar reasons, Cameron’s Bullingdon bully routine is misguided. Indeed, every time he pulls it the Prime Minister becomes more supple and joyous.

    The Conservative ego has really neatly boxed itself in. It can’t go forwards and the inner fear they project on the poor will start chewing them up as they slide. Ouch.

    Words and emotions, or policies and marketing, are mere tools. Better ways, or correctness, or the moral are all equivalent, and help solve problems and bring people together. By clearing the mind of junk one may more easily understand the issues and develop consensus instead of building a mountain of funk that will bite us in the ass.

    The Prime Minister has identified a problem and is pressing a solution. If people aren’t persuaded, nothing is lost. He merely drops the whole thing and bounds on to the next challenge instead of getting bogged down in egotistical wallowing. This is quite masterful and will leave the Tories greasy fingers slipping from the bumper of his political vehicle. Left with mere hate and envy the Tories will have nothing left to do but chew themselves up.

      Since he is a liabilty campaigning, even in by-elections, and since Labours poll numbers are still flatllining, a couple of months hence his next challenge will likely be a leadership challenge kickstarted by friends of Johnson, Milliboy or even jugears Clarke himself.

    What No Scotland?

    The Lobby is jumping all over Fraser Nelson’s interview with George Osborne in the Speccie tomorrow where he appears to distance himself from the über-modernisers.

    Of more interest to Guido was the information that in CCHQ

    “a new map hangs in George Osborne’s office, showing the latest parliamentary boundaries for the next general election. It could have been designed to soothe the nerves of a Conservative party election co-ordinator, for it is dominated by Tory blue. A few tricks have been used to achieve this optical illusion. There is no Scotland”.

    Perhaps George is hoping that Scotland will be coloured yellow…

    UPDATE : The Scottish press are very interested in this point of detail. Consequently Osborne’s spin-doctor has been on to Guido claiming that the office does not belong to his boss. “So whose office is it?” Guido challenged, “Errr, I don’t know.” Guido called Fraser Nelson, he certainly thought it was Osborne’s office – opposite Dave’s own. Indeed at one point in the interview Dave walked in “Ah, so that’s where all the booze is kept” he said, “nodding to the bottles of Château Village 2003 in the corner of Mr Osborne’s office”, according to Fraser. Where is Osborne’s Millbank office? We were spun recently that an election-ready campaign team had moved into CCHQ Millbank from their parliamentary offices. Osborne is the campaign manager…

One can almost hear the screeching of political brakes as good-time friends flip-flop on the ashes of their ego.

    Bit of an odd one for Guido this.

    Macintyre is indeed stretching it more than a bit and the New Stoadsperson will never be a haven for insider Tory information.

    But the Policy differences on crossrail are there and Boris wanting more Mayoral powers is hardly a surprise.

    You also don’t need to have Cameron or Boris’s personal ear to know are they not the best of friends. That is common knowledge as is Boris’s limitless ambition in Politics.

    I doubt Boris finding out he was a target for phone hacking under Coulson will have mellowed him much toward the Cameroonians either. He has been in the tabloids more than enough to know the truth of that one.

    But Boris won’t be briefing against Cameron through Macintyre or anyone else just now. Despite his cultivated Buffoon image Boris isn’t really stupid. Why antagonise Cameron and his friends before the Election ? Pointless.

    So yes, Macintyre cobbled this together and he’s not the most reliable of sources but Boris and Dave’s coolness toward each other is no fiction.

    Dave is also now floating Toll Roads and higher Taxes for Middle classes which might arouse some ire from the old guard in the Tory Party far more than his and Boris’s mutual dislike.

      Cameron probably is arelatively lightweight, but that might not matter for the Conservatives. If Brown is (allegedely) heavyweight, then a candidate PM perceived as lightweight will be well placed to hoover up the anyone but Brown feeling and turn it into a majority.

      Brown also will suffer because of his record of poor decisions (eg selling gold, raising private sector pesnions, Gurkhas, not funding military equipment for wars he wants to fight, emplying Balls, McBride, Mandelson) his distinct lack of a moral compass when he claimed to have one, his failure to hold the promised constitution/Lisbon Treaty referendum, his support for negative bullying breifing against collegaues and others ( al la McBride) his tax tax tax and spend spend spend spend instinct, his fiddling of figures (inflation, unemeployment, PSBR etc), his legacy of enormous and overwhelming national debt, his appalling lack of feel for the electorate, his personal evasiveness on the issue of expenses, his clear lack of democratic mandate (particularly on English issues – a self inflicted wound by Labour), his etc etc etc. The fact that he’s kept his children away from the limelight might be his one plus point but it’s not going to save his bacon on election day. Goodbye Mr Brown you will not be missed by the voters and taxpayers of England – and they are the ones who decide the election (well a few of them in mrginal constituencies, but you get my drift).

        Because, as you rightly document, Brown is a one man political Chernobyl, all DC has to do is keep quiet except for regular listing of NewLabour’s “achievements”.

        This will be enough to persuade many former Labour voters to change horses to the Tories, and to persuade the rest to either not vote or register a vote for anyone but Labour.

        And I would add to those “achievements”, for those of us who grew up in the Labour movement, the BlairBrownMandelson betrayal of that movement. To have wrought a widening of inequality after 12 years of ugly, clumsy social engineering is a very sick joke.

    Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling are out in the woods when Gordon Brown falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. Alistair Darling whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: “Gordon Brown is dead! What can I do?”

    The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is a silence, then a shot is heard.

    Alistair Darling comes back on the line. He says: “OK, now what?“

        OK, I’ll rise to the bait. Thatcher took over a country that was bankrupt, ungovernable, weak and derided. It was dominated by trade union bosses who were in the pay of the Soviet Union, uncompetitive and written-off by world opinion. The IMF called the economic shots and the NHS had suffered its only ever true funding cut under the outgoing Labour government. The old manufacturing industry was dying with nothing to replace it, unemployemnt and inflation were high and rising and the political class seemed exhausted.

        After a few years’ pain Thatcher had created a new model that was rightly copied round the world, leading to a surge in world prosperity, the defeat of Communism and a new spirit of optimism and ‘can-do’. No wonder left-wing commentatots hate her; she exposed socialism for the useless, negative, dirigiste and defeatist creed that it is.

        We need a Thatcher for the 21st centruy, not with the same ideas, which would be out-of-date now, but with the same vision, honesty and radicalism.

        If my legacy was punitive – and many would beg to differ with you on that – then your Labour government has had 12 years to improve the state of the nation.

        Let us compare, briefly, Britain as it is today with Britain in 1997.

        Economy – Worse now than in 1997.

        Educational attainment – worse now than in 1997.

        Healthcare – about the same as in 1997, despite trebling the budget.

        International standing – worse now than in 1997.

        Energy policy – do we have one?

        Crime – worse now than in 1997.

        Competence and probity of politicians – worse now than in 1997.

        All in all, not a shining record, is it, young Baiter. I would suggest that you discuss with your masters the likleyhood of their legacy being regarded with any degree of positivity. Most people would regard that likleyhood as extremely remote, and look forward to the return of steady, rather boring, but reasonably competent government following the next General Election; that, needless to say, will not be a Labour government.
