      How CAN Nick Robinson get it so badly wrong? Is he just a useful idiot? Will he believe anything he is told so long as it comes from a ‘credible source?’ I.E., a drinking buddy or a trusted old friend?

      This is the truth of it, a truth Nick Robinson has difficulty coming to terms with…

          Hewitt loves her darling Hoon says:

          Well done the Guardian for breaking the story! Good scoop

          you know the ACTUAL story where no ministers resigned but 2 fuckwit ex ministers missed the coup plot by several months
          nice timing and the kind of plotting competence you’d expect from a pair like that

          Robinson also lost his mind about this earlier and was predicting a Brown apocalypse but has now had to admit it’s another damp squib fizzling out with no ministers quitting leaving Hoon and Hewitt high and dry but looking most amusing none the less

          Now Brown and the Labour Party knows who the 6 cabinet ‘bastards’ (to use a John Majorism) they are now neutered. Charlse Clarke couldn’t organise a piss up in a brewery and he is even more fucktastically hopeless at coup plotting than Simon Mann and Mark Thatcher

          Still, you did manage at least one tremendous scoop Guido
          Team Cameron somehow deliberately being shit (yet again lol) at question time because of a coup that did not emerge until question time was underway
          Mystic Meg is advising Cameron now is she ?

          Robinsons hopeless but you did no better
          nobody in the cabinet quit
          two ex ministers made themselves look twats

          also amusing is how this fucks the cabinet ‘bastards’ chances in the leadership contest after the election as they now have to run for Labour Leader with the ‘treachery’ label like Portillo had to and that never goes down well among Party grass roots of whatever colour

          • Horny handed son of toil says:

            Hey Mr liebor apologist you can flail around all you like blaming all and sundry but the fact is that the hoon Hoon’s and “health service best year” Hewitt’s little intervention actually had resonance among us little people which you so crave to “look after”. I heard people on the London omnibus and a hospital I visited today talking about the Brown b’stard and how his own party hates him!!!

            Its the front page of tomorrow’s papers as well. That will go down well among the masses?!?

          • Hoons hoons everywhere and not a drop of sense says:

            can’t you read moron ?
            I would hardly be looking forward to a messy Leadership contest after the election if I thought Brown would win or I support these dickheads

            some of us aren’t partisan little twats who can only see the world through their blinkered narrow minded Dave or Brown viewpoint

            The front pages also have Cameron ahead by a mere 9% in a Sun poll
            so much for your in depth knowledge of the masses, shit for brains

            this email from a pair of fuckwits won’t change the polls by much if anything and Cameron should really be 15% to 20% ahead at least right now

            if Blair and Browns New Labour are so fucking hopeless, and they are, what does it say about Cameron’s Conservatives that they are struggling to get ahead by more than 9% in the depest recession in decades with a PM who is hugely unpopular ?

          • denverthen says:

            Does anyone reckon the phantom coup was all Brown’s idea in the first place? It conveniently kills off the issue of a challenge to him stone dead just when it could have been a problem, using a couple of has-beens at the end of their political careers as the bait.

            Some people seem to think so.

            Still, epic fail either way.

    Oh dear, oh dear – what a dilemma. Should we try to keep Gordon in place so that he can lose the GE quite comprehensively, or ought we to welcome the mayhem that replacing him now would cause?

    Either option would produce such discontent and fear among The Supine Faithful that I’m perfectly happy to spectate and giggle my balls off.

    To complete my delight all I need is an Opposition that tore into the bastards every hour, on the hour. As Daniel Hannan or David Davis would. Instead we’ve got Dave, the Heir to Bliar.

    (By the way, Dave, ‘protecting the NHS’ might be a winner with the morons, but how about a bit of encouragement to those of us who can see the waste and inefficiency? Better value need not mean cuts.)

        I would be very surprised if minds at the BBC were not already aware of the potential liabilities they carry in their current political coverage. I would exepect them to be assiduously but carefully courting the conservatives; the results of which will gradually appear more visible.

        What I think they’d be most reluctant to see would be the abolition of the BBC trust and the placing of the BBC under OFCOM; a move that would cost little but would come as a total humiliation for the BBC.

    And at least four major regions have suffered power cuts today following warnings from National Grid that we, imminently, are facing a power crisis as gordon condemned their scaremongering and said there was nothing to worry about.

            Although to be fair the teachers of our school also lived in our village.

            My recollection of that winter is the school’s coal burner stoves – they put the free milk all around them so that when we had it to drink it was warm and then they roasted potatoes on top of them. ‘Elf ‘n safety nowadays wouldn’t let them do things like that.

            They even let us go out to the field next door to make snowmen, play snowballs and slide down an incline. Can you imagine any school doing that now? The children might get wet and cold!!!!

            It’s true. A friend of mine is a governor at local primary school.They stayed open in the last cold snap even though only 40% of pupils turned up.On a rece Ofsted they were marked down on attendance/truancy levels. So I suggest that is one of the main reasons schools are closed even though the roads are passable by walking etc

    “Strategy for forcing political change through orchestrated crisis”

    ‘First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.’

    These two Marxist jokers ( Cloward & Piven) are alive and well and advising Obama – which certainly might suggest why Obama has surrounded himself with Socialists, Marxists and even an honest to goodness Commie – and of course Obama used to teach their ‘ideas’ when he was a lecturer.

    Brown and co -on the face of it – are also following Cloward and Pivin’s blueprint – why else are they doing what they are doing?

    Could we actually be seeing the “Progressives” (the marxist left) plan coming to fruition? Is this a determined effort to hasten the fall of capitalism? All the evidence is there.

    mandy is kingmaking for dave militwit – but he doesn’t want him to attempt to take the crown until after the next GE which he thinks, quite rightly, gordon is going to crash and burn.

    On the topic of media confusion I noticed the headline “Warrant out for horse sex accused” on the BBC site and immediately wondered – can it be Osborne, Hague or even Clarke. Then I thought of Crazy Horse Beckett. But then the answer came…
    Its TATGAY – and he’s hiding out on this site!

          nell supports the troops so much she can’t wait for Cameron to get in and condemn them to another 5 years in slaughterhouse Afghanistan

          isn’t she sweet and caring?

          don’t worry we’ll help her remember how much she cares about every single death when Cameron gets in and the bodies keep piling up because she voted for another warmonger sending troops to their deaths for no good reason

          Dave really is just like Blair isn’t he?

    Perfect Storm says:

    Ah well another day Gone and what a day it was. Got a bit worried when I heard The Labour Party might be getting rid of The Conservatives biggest asset but thankfully they did the right thing and ensured Political annihilation come election Day.
    CMD also gave Brown an easy ride to make him look good in front of his own tribe, after all it was important that they didnt come out that chamber feeling dejected by another poor performance by their Leader, not with that e mail waiting for them.
    Well thats that then, the last chance Labour had to put up a decent fight come May/March.
    The Perfect Storm is now underway.


    Night night all.

    Kezza the Hat says:

    We’ve just had a discussion at work about Labours achievements, their performance against manifesto promises, their tackling of social and economic woes and an attempt to list positives against negatives since they came to power. The consensus of opinion, including that of a number of Labour supporters is;

    Manifesto promises = Failed, broken or ignored on all known counts.

    Social problems = Failed miserably, in fact they have worsened the situation.

    Economics = No need to answer that one.

    Positives = We’re still trying to think of any.

    Negatives = Crime, extreme Political Correctness, Uncontrolled Immigration, increase in the number of Benefit reliant, NHS, unjust War, BBC in pocket, PM lying and making up ‘evidence’, unanswerable, expenses, unaccountable, playing host to mad mullahs, anti marriage, anti hard-working families, pro teenage single mums, unelected, tax, petrol, stealth taxes, financial incompetence, state powers, Big Brother, ‘jobs for the boys’, ill equipped army, low pay, better off not working, unemployment, two-faced, no morals, Harperson being anti-male, education, education, education…

    We could go on but we only had 5 minutes.

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”

Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
