Do the Blairites Have a Plan B?

Miliband BlairSomething was nagging away at Guido after his second coffee this morning; Blairites don’t tend to be delusional, they are political realists, so why try to make their champion President of Europe? Half of Europe thinks he is a neo-con, war criminal.  There is no way he would be acceptable to most European social democrats and in any event it is probably going to go to a centre-right figure in the undemocratic Buggin’s turn way Brussels works.

The high representative of the council is pencilled in for a socialist on the same basis – a sort of undemocratic consolation prize.  There is talk, denied by David Miliband, that he himself is a strong candidate for that position.  Could it be some Machiavellian / Mandelsonian plot to get him the job?  The Dark Lord’s mind is subtle in his strategies, David Miliband is the anointed heir to Blair and the person to whom the Dark Lord plans perhaps in the future to play regent.  Could they be going through this Blair for President act to boost his credentials?  There is always a tiny chance they might pull it off Blair of course…

In the almost certain event that they don’t, “alright” they will say, if Blair can’t be the figurehead, can we give the mini-Blair (who acts as his campaign manager) some kind of consolation prize?  EU foreign minister?  Oh yes, that will dovetail nicely with the day job.  It would also give Miliband a world stage full of photo-ops to provide a backdrop for his post-election leadership campaign.

Just speculatin’…

        Porkbusters for the many not the few says:

        Just a shame Nick Clegg had so little support from the Big Two Piggy Party Leaders when he demanded an inquiry into it, isn’t it ?

        John Bercow, the Speaker, has turned down a request by Nick Clegg, the Liberal Democrat leader, to widen the scope of his audit into MPs expenses amid concerns that some of worst abusers of Commons allowances are escaping punishment.

        In his reply to Mr Clegg, seen by the Daily Telegraph, the Speaker said: “Extending the review to cover changes of home designations for personal gain and the payment of capital gains tax would unquestionably involve significant retrospective changes to the rules on allowances…”

        “Agreeing to your proposal would therefore considerably lengthen the timescale of the review and the MEC did not feel it could support this.”

        Mr Clegg said that he was “dismayed” by the ruling, which was taken in private and referred to only briefly in published minutes of the meeting.

        He had warned that the audit would not be “credible” if abuses such as flipping and non-payment of CGT were not investigated.

        “This response shows that despite people’s anger at the expenses scandal the worst perpetrators are still being let off the hook,” he said.

        “Only in a place as mad as Westminster can MPs make fat profits playing the property market with taxpayers’ money and get away with it.

        “Despite all the rhetoric of cleaning up politics we now know that at the very heart of the Westminster establishment there is still no will to deal with the biggest offences.”

        MPs’ expenses: Speaker John Bercow helps house ‘flippers’ get away with it


        Revealing that this wasn’t considered a story. Perhaps if it had been Cameron doing the heavy lifting and demanding an inquiry but it wasn’t and we all know why Cameron or Brown won’t touch home flipping and mortgages with a bargepole.

        Fuck the Piggies. ALL OF THEM. And Fuck playing favourites.

          Can you believe it? says:

          E-Mail response from David Wilshire MP. (Still waiting for Ms Smith to respond)

          It saddens me that you believe everything you read in newspapers without first checking the accuracy of the allegations and innuendos. Prior to publication the Daily Telegraph told me the alleged £100,000 (over 3 years) was a “guess” for which they had no proof.

          I received similar emails when the paper criticised my housing claims earlier this year without waiting for the outcome of the independent Legg enquiry. It has now confirmed there was nothing wrong with them claims. I do not have to repay anything. The same will happen this time.

          The witch hunt against MPs in general will undermine democracy. It will weaken parliament – handing yet more power to governments. Branding a whole group of people as undesirables led to Hitler’s gas chambers.

          Assuming individual MPs are guilty without checking the facts and listening to those involved is a return to the lynch mob. It will undermine human rights and the rule of law. Millions died in two world wars to defend these vital concepts. Now they are being rubbished.

          Hopefully the following facts known to the Daily Telegraph before publications (but which they chose not to mention) will prove to you the danger of believing newspapers and assuming guilt.

          * The business of which I was a partner was legally constituted
          * No self-employed person or partnership is required by law to register their business
          * It existed on a not for profit basis to help me to do the job I was elected to do
          * It provided a constituency office at a much lower cost than setting up a new one
          * This use of allowances is completely within parliament’s rules
          * The business filed annual accounts with the tax authorities
          * The accounts were always prepared by independent accountants
          * My interest was permanently included in parliament’s public register of interests
          * The services provided were agreed in advance with the relevant parliamentary authorities
          * The list of services was confirmed in writing
          * Neither my partner nor I have ever received any payment from the business
          —–Original Message—–

          • MPs tell the truth about expenses says:

            So we have another revolting whining MP with a victim and persecution complex like Alan Duncan and Nadine Dorries ?

            I expect he’ll be warning us of MPs throwing themselves from the balcony of the Commons into the Thames in suicidal despair at their “witch-hunt” for thieving taxpayers money any day now.

            But he’s even more bonkers than that as he proves

            “Branding a whole group of people as undesirables led to Hitler’s gas chambers.”

            Don’t think that’s going to endear him to Mr Cameron somehow.

            Fuck the Piggies and their pathetic excuses.

      Which is why “Bliarites don’t tend to be delusional” was a laugh out loud line.

      You mean APART from the imaginary Weapons of Mass Destruction and the whole War-Criminal corrupt Peerages selling gold-digger thing ?

      This isn’t speculation it’s been in the papers for days about Miliband getting the consolation prize.

      But Blair is sadly not dead yet whatever Cameron might wish with Merkel seemingly still intent on giving him the nod along with Sarko. Well they were probably just considering it but after clodhopper Cameron wrote Klause his pointless letter they might just give it to Blair to spite Cameron and try and strengthen the Europhiles in Cameron’s Party and the other Parties.

      We also know that the reason Cameron is terrified of President Blair isn’t just that it will highlight under Lisbon he will be Blairs little bitch and in fact any EU Presidents bitch, it’s that seeing the REAL Blair back in public life will only highlight what a cheap knock off copy Cameron is.

      Still this fills a gap where a story about a Government Advisor getting sacked by Postman Johnson for telling the truth should be. Don’t worry about it, Libertarians might have highlighted it but anyone worried about drugs and toeing the Cameron Party line on them are less keen.

            Millipede (D) doesn’t know what the capital of Brazil is called, and p1ssed off one of Britain’s historical allies with his slanderous smears for the sake of Nu-Liebore point scoring (which backfired spectacularly as detailed here by Guido.) Then there’s his foolish interference in the Kashmir situation that p1ssed off both Pakistan and India, which took a rather incredible talent to have both implacable enemies write off his visit as “disastrous” and “unhelpful.” I recall that the real PM, Mangledbum, had to smooth that one over. Oh yes, and there’s his trip to Ireland in which he forgot what clothes he was wearing when he left the house, and picked up someone else’s coat on the plane. The there’s all the second and third-hand environmental twaddle that he comes out with, making himself look an ever bigger idiot. Yep, I can really see the intellect there, in the Frank Spencer of Mr Bean’s sorry excuse for a government. Oh wait, didn’t Millipede (D) say that Gordo wouldn’t become PM and if he did, he’d be so unpopular that within a year people would be crying out for B.Liar to come back?

            Unless, of course, you were being sarcastic! :) Millipede (D) is an idiot of the highest order and should not be let out in public without his parents being made to keep an eye on what he’s going to say and do next.

            Jesus! it’s like trying to teach a toddler basic politics

          • Mr Ned says:

            Budgie, the only reason that Cameron is NOT brave enough, or committed or principled enough to announce what his policy on a ratified Lisbon Reform Treat would be is because he knows full well that when he admits that he will NOT hold ANY referendum of any kind after Lisbon is ratified that he will have an enormous amount of tories going and voting UKIP.

            There will also be millions of others who would not normally vote at all, who will be voting for the B&P or UKIP and using the General Election AS our referendum, because that is the ONLY TIME that we will get ANY SAY AT ALL on our relationship with the EU!

            ALL the parties have gone into the last general election with exactly the same policy on the EU. A promise to hold a referendum.

            The tories and Labour will go into the next one both denying us a referendum.

            That is NOT certain, but is 90% probable. IF the Lisbon treaty is ratified, then the tories will NOT have a referendum on that treaty. They will have a damaging sulk at every EU summit, that achieves NOTHING as the other countries will out-vote us because the labour traitors have been only too keen to give away as many of our vetos as possible.

            The tories have already made it perfectly clear that they are wholly against withdrawing from the EU. Once Lisbon is passed, a powerless, neutered tory Government would be irrelevant.

            The only say that “we the people” would then be able to have, will be to vote for pro-EU parties, or anti-EU parties.

            We were promised a referendum on the EU by ALL parties. We have every right to make a principled stand and use the general election AS our Referendum!

          • Budgie says:

            Mr Ned – you comment as though I have supported Cameron and the Tories – show me where I have done this. I have simply pointed out the basic political fact that the only politician that can give us a referendum NOW is Brown, NOT Cameron. And the person who ratted on his promise to hold the referendum was Brown not Cameron. Socialists don’t like Brown’s sordid cowardice made public.

            It does not matter what Cameron says at the moment because he has no power. If the EU get their way and Lisbon is ratified in the next few weeks, before a UK general election, Cameron will not be able to do anything about it except leave. He has said the Tories will not pull out. So promising a referendum now that can only be carried out in say 6 month’s time is pointless.

            Ghost of RKS – you need to do some remedial reading: what part of Cameron can do do nothing about the imminent ratification of Lisbon because he is not in power, do you not understand?

          • fuckwits amongymous says:

            1827, from Fr. socialiste, in reference to the teachings of Comte de Saint-Simon, founder of Fr. socialism. Socialism is attested from 1837, apparently first in reference to Robert Owen’s communes. “Pierre Leroux (1797-1871), idealistic social reformer and Saint-Simonian publicist, expressly claims to be the originator of the word socialisme” [Klein]. The word begins to be used in Fr. in the modern sense c.1835. Socialista, with a different sense, was applied 18c. to followers and pupils of Du. jurist Grotius (1583-1645).

            Political sense arose from members of a legislative body assigned to the left side of a chamber, first attested in Eng. 1837 (by Carlyle, in ref. to the Fr. Revolution), probably a loan-translation of Fr. la gauche (1791), said to have originated during the seating of the Fr. National Assembly in 1789 in which the nobility took the seats on the President’s right and left the Third Estate to sit on the left. Became general in U.S. and British political speech c.1900

            Political sense commonly associated with those who use words like a child to try and reduce discussion to a set of slogans and namecalling to be parroted with little or no understanding or care for their actual meaning

          • Desert rat says:

            “a political theory advocating an authoritarian hierarchical government (as opposed to democracy or liberalism)”

            Might apply to both of them. Fact is that Uncle Joe and Hitler were evil fanatics. The system of government merely allowed both to succeed. We can do without either thank you very much.

          • Budgie says:

            Hayek pointed out the similarities between national socialists (Nazis, Fascists) and international socialists (Communists, Trotskyists, Maoists etc). Many others have traced the actual realities of self styled ‘socialist’ utopias. These societies are remarkable for exhibiting the same conditions, structures and outcomes rather than for their differences.

            I can understand that the dim who rely on socialism as a neo-religious crutch should fight so frantically against the truth. It must be very un-nerving for them, a sort of vertigo, as they rant against one form of socialism, or another, only to have that form confimed as near identical to their own beliefs. Sad really.

        Blair has got the Presidents Job IMHO.

        He has given away some 20 BILLION+ into the EuroCorrupt coffers to get his place in History. The ‘British Cheque’ was ceded without a murmur or concession. The BBC was ever so quiet about it.

        This Job has been promised to him, and the recent events are sheer smoke and mirrors so that it looks like they eventually reached the right conclusion. The Game will only be in play when the last signature is on the dotted line.

        The big ‘BUT’ is if Sarko has done a French Backflip. Remember the French don’t have friends, they only have interests.

        In which case Bliar will get a secret wadge of our money to keep his silence and buy off the contract.

    David Miliband, according to the FT is very favorably placed for the post of EU Foreign Minister – much to the delight of Blair Inc. > what a scoop!!

    Thus, Milliband probably suits them better than Blair, who is fairly well known on the world stage. It is more likely that they would prefer someone relatively unknown (to us) from one of the smaller countries.

    If the Dark Lord is on manouvres, Blair would be his first choice. He may issue commands Millipede if same is installed, but Millipede may not have the firepower to deliver on the EU stage. Seems that the EU cabal may scupper the Dark Lord.

The country is not in the euro and unlikely to ever be so in the near future ;they are not party to the “Schengen Agreement” and unlikely to be so;the country’s foreign policy is aligned with the USA not Europe and the majority of the British public is anti-EU and British politicians have never had the courage to actually put the matter of closer union to the referendum or campaign for it and that includes Blair when he was Prime Minister.

    I see a lot of comments starting with ‘why would the EU etc etc’ . You must wonder that of course but when has the EU institution ever done anything that is

    a) In any way Democratic in any sense of the word
    b) Seen as acceptance of the first democratic result (only when votes are actually allowed of course)
    3) Financially sensible and balanced amongst all members (not just the French and the Germans)
    4) Something the Italians will understand, the French will actually abide too and is not anti British and cost us more than everyone else?

    Good analysis fawkes , CW thinks your right .

    EU leaders summit was bit smoke and mirrors , but why are we all so worried about milliband getting to influence the world scene , name one thing of note that he has achieved in his ministerial career !! apart from ramming through lisbon wich most people now take as being a traitor to the basic tennants of democracy . he doesnt really care about Uk voters think and now hes been exposed as the unrepentant wannabe with no depth or guts to do the right thing . every time he fronts it out his charcture screams sneaky liar .
    He doesnt explain any policy coherently ,why should we all believe he is anything other than the product of the no10 press office , tart up offensive .

    True he nearly finished brown off when blairites had decided the ruin was going all wrong , but then he didnt team up with purnell , wich suggest he is about his own plan , which so far seems to be some sort blair revalivist movement . Tony was very adept at the new blitzkrieg spin politics very much of that 1997 era , it was a meld of modern sales techniques , physcology and technology , mould breaking and totalitarian . As the web and mobile communications rolled out so did new labour , it was a sort of poltics of products, you vill all have broad band and transact your lives out upon it , everything else was to become old hat . Its was orwell but without a downside . Except this eutopia was to have some very big downsides as enabled bigger gambles to be placed .

    I hope to turn to the real changes of Blairs Britain (fawkes permitting) at another date and it aint what andrew marrs spoon feeds us either , I would hardly call debt enslavement and national bankruptacy a political triumph , nor the way time after time labour have whored democracy and taken us down personal opression and ruined valuable and proven institutions together with any vestigaes of morality with it .

    It was a mirage and a sell off , with mind bending sales techniques and totallitarian politics , funny thing is now that we have got the idea of how it all worked , they neither like it or admitt they got it all so terribly wrong .

    It may not be over and plan B may well be tried , but i have never seen a public so badly let down by a british goverment , I have never seen so much money wasted nor incompetence or lying and disrespect for that matter . CW thinks let them have there plan B ,we have sussed them out and we are up for putting the matter right .

    It doesnt look much , but CW thinks tories have achieved a remarkable correction on the democratic deficiet that has done so much harm .

      Heir-to-Blair says:

      Mr Cameron who has put a modernising agenda at the centre of his campaign, clearly enjoys the comparisons that have been made between him and Labour’s most successful modern-day Prime Minister.

      At a dinner with newspaper executives on the eve of his address, he took the comparison a step further. “I am the heir to Blair,” he said. If his hosts were in any doubt about what they had heard, Mr Cameron repeated the mantra. He also said that a Cameron Tory Government would not reverse all of the Blairite reforms in the public services.

      His hosts were, to say the least, taken aback. Mr Cameron was guest, in the Louis Room at the Imperial Hotel in Blackpool, of The Daily Telegraph, house journal of the Conservative Party. The spirit of Margaret Thatcher, who was even praised by Kenneth Clark yesterday, still beats strongly in the editorial conferences of the newspaper.

      Charles Moore, the former Editor who was at the dinner, is the official biographer of Baroness Thatcher, whose admirers include . . . Tony Blair. Mr Cameron, who was accompanied by his wife, Samantha, the creative director of a stationery company, was not isolated in the intimate gathering.

      George Osborne, the Shadow Chancellor and fellow member of the so-called Notting Hill set of young modernising Tories, was also at the dinner table. Mr Osborne, defending the heir to Blair boast, said: “We have nothing to be ashamed of in saying it.”

      Martin Newland, the Editor of The Daily Telegraph, which has yet to declare for any of the five candidates, was not so sure. “David,” he said. “I would not repeat that outside this room.”

          It grieves me to tell you this but the reason the Blackhawks were not purchased was inter service rivalry. There is a rule that helicopters of above a certain weight can only be flown by the RAF. The Army can fly helicopters below this weight.

          Blackhawks would need to be RAF operated and the Army would not permit that as it would have meant the end of the Army Air Corps.

          Stuff the operational needs.

          However helicopters will not stop casualties as the Taliban are shooting them down. All that will happen is that the risk is transferred and the probability of that happening would increase as more flights took place in theatre.

          I agree that our politicians and civil servants are wastes of space but the senior ranks in the services are also to blame – they are as much political animals now as other civil servants.

Whilst individuals within it are certainly capable of rational scheming and plotting, and even, dare I say it, rare acts of principle, as a movement NuLabour suffers from grand delusions on an almost Stalinist scale.

    All this willing compliance or conspiracy of devolving Britains’ sovereignty to a conspiracy of foreign powers makes me angry. If our MPs’ want someone else to do the deciding perhaps their salaries should be slashed accordingly, never mind the expenses. Not one of them has asked or proposed or even hinted that there should be a competition to select a representative of Britain for the candancy to be the ‘Generalissimo of Europe’.

    These bastards are traitors, pure and simple and its about time Her Majesties’ subjects took control of events. Europe is anti-democracy, anti-liberty and is all about socialism and the slavery that goes with it. It’s not English or even a respector of English law, it’s foreign, alien and does not belong here.

    From the Times:

    The Sunday Times has learnt that Miliband has secretly held a number of discussions with the socialist faction in the European parliament about running for the job. Schulz, who said Miliband would make a “superb candidate”, refused to elaborate on the private talks.

    “I will not say anything that could [put] any of my British colleagues in a difficult position,” he said.

    The disclosure that No 10 is preparing to throw its weight behind Miliband will prompt speculation that Brown has given up on Blair’s hopes, since British candidates could not fill both Brussels posts.

            According to the anoracks on PB.com using Baxter this gives a Tory majority of 120. ICM is also considered one of the best pollsters in the market. The interesting bit is the closure of the gao between the limp Dums and Labour.

            you don’t quite understand the purpose of polls do you?
            polls are propaganda tools, their main function is to influence the way people vote.
            42% is not a big enough number to influence anybody and as there are only six months left to the election there is insufficient time left to influence the electorate with the use of friendly polls. too little to late.
            and that is why there will be a hung parliament.
            labour are unpopular + tories do not have popular support + labour vote rigging and gerrymandering = hung parliament.

    The French have never got over the fact that they rolled over so quickly and allowed the jack boot in during WWII.

    This is quite an interesting and very apt point. Of course not all of France did roll over a large number did becoming known as the Vichy government ruling from their base of Vichy alongside the Germans during the occupation.

    Why interesting and apt? In my personal view the Labour party and its members have become the equivilant of the Vichy government. They are hated and will be hated evermore because of it but certainly Nu Labour = NuVichy.

    I don’t think there is a conspiracy.

    Blair desperately wants the job. He is not going through the motions.

    It’s only recently that Blair’s unspoken candidacy has suffered. It was fair to assume that Sarkozy and Berlusconi would back Blair, and that if Merkel could be persuaded to nod him through then it would be a done deal. However, the backlash in the UK (particularly William Hague) and the manouverings of smaller nations have scuppered this.

    Miliband is probably shafted after his bizarre and unfounded anti-Polish ranting.

        As soon as the Tories get in power there has to be a full and complete audit of the books to fully understand the dire position we face and irrespective of any repercussions this has to be made known to the British people. This way we can ensure the blame remains precisely at the door of the Labour party and they cannot skulk away and blame others. The next step will be to place them in the dock and try them all as criminals.

    this will be entertaining if you are right, for me at least, as i called the blair candidacy a stalking horse for milliband at least 24 hours before the mightly guido fawkes got there:


    “Of course Brown is vigorously backing Blair, he is thinking to the future of Labour where a rebirth may happen five years down the line.
    Labour is utterly discredited, both as a collection of individuals and as a creed, and no Labour ‘high-flyer’ is going to have an easy time sustaining that reputation if they are associated with the bloodbath that will be the next general election.
    If Milliband jumps from the sinking ship now and has a high profile sabbatical as the EU’s first foreign minister then he will return to British politics relatively untainted by Labours years of Nadir.
    Seen in this light, Blair is nothing more than a stalking horse to ensure that the Labour party has a future in British politics, so of course Brown will lobby hard in Blair’s favour to ensure that we are seen to merit the position of EU foriegn minister having graciously stepped aside from the contest for the ‘top’ position.”
