    Brown is banned by his own colleagues says:

    From The Daily Mail;

    “Mr Brown’s credibility as premier suffered yet another blow last night as Parliamentary Questions revealed that 12 Parliamentary Private Secretary posts remain vacant following last June’s Cabinet reshuffle, apparently because Labour MPs are refusing to serve under him”.

    Fancy a (unelected ) Prime Minister being so unpopular that his own Party walk around him like something on the pavement left by a dog.

    Special mention for John Prescott and his stewardship of his constituency while part of the Labour government of all the imbeciles.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8464470.stm

    The gap grew between the top and bottom of the economics rankings, it added.

    Hull had the highest percentage of people claiming jobseeker’s allowance while Cambridge had the lowest – but the gap between the two places nearly doubled in that time.

    Great work John. How do you find time to lecture the Chinese on anything? And do you never stop to consider what they think they’re buying ‘cos it sure as fuck ain’t what you think you’re selling.

    Not long until Labour gone says:

    Would love to see a televised debate between the UKIP and B-N–P, just to see how different they are.

    As it seems a fair few people will be passing their votes to these parties to let the main parties know their feeling towards immigration policy, it would help them make an educated decision.

    we need to declare all out campaign war on that little Ed Bollocks twot. He clearly doesnt recognise that trying to educate chavs with free laptops is social engineering. After all who wants that fucking lot competing for our jobs which they will probably get via some scum quota.

    And for another thing. I read yesterday that anyone who goes to university from a middle class family earning 50k plus would be hit with up to 7k in additional charges. I dont get it. Uni students are adults and fuck all to do with the govt what the parents earn. My duaghter casnt get the amount of loan she needs as she seems to have been means tested based on my salary. How can that be right?

    Nor a Ukipper, but this is an excellent move by the party and will draw votes from the Tory party. Especially if the hate mob start to cuase trouble at Ukip events.

    Brown did a TV interview in regard to the governments emergency funding to Haiti (not the private donations sent in) and announced the UK government was sending money. Anyone per chance have a link to this interview as I cannot now find it anywhere?

    I know it would have been ITV or Sky as I never watch Pravda?I am not referring to the numerous newspaper articles on this subject but a specific intitial TV interview where the aid announcement was made and done in the last few days.

    O/T – Note to Dave: Please keep the likes of Michael Gove off the media if you are serious about winning this election with a decent majority. I heard Gove on radio 4 Today this morning banging on about the shoddy standard of woodwork teachers or some such micro-management tinkering at the edges shit and had to turn my radio off. How about taking schools out of central / local authority control altogher? The public finances and basic institutions of this country have been fucked by Labour, including the education system. We don’t need minor tweaking we need change. Surely CCHQ realise this? Are they so overrun by guilt ridden trendy metropolitan public schoolboy types they don’t realise that we ordinary proles demand red meat from the Tories this time round. Where the fuck are the new Tebbits and Thatchers?

    Angry Englishman says:

    Things are moving nicely in Bercow’s constituency – all nice and polite of course, but he will definitely be out. Voters here keep their thoughts to themselves, so polls are useless, but pub talk is all about getting Mr Bercow to spend more time with his family.

    Dave's astonishing plan for Education revealed by Oiky Gove says:

    After Gove was forced to admit there would be no new money (of course) Gove and Dave’s masterplan for education was revealed to be …,,
    Dave will say he likes teachers.

    f*cking genius !

    The only profession the public respects less than politicians is bankers (though it’s like the choice between anthrax and bubonic plague) but Gove and Dave think if Dave says he likes teachers often enough that’s education sorted

    And you thought Blair was shallow ?
    Dave has less substance than transparent candyfloss

    You may now wail “Liebore Troll” for daring to criticise Dave on this supposedly politically independent website even though I think Bruin is a pile of rank shite and would never vote for these useless Liebore fools (such things matter not to the reactionary sheep)

    UKIP if you want to mate says:

    Farage made a total t-w-a-t of himself on yesterdays’s BBC Politics Show as an incredulous Jon Sopel and that asian women from Respect with the big gob(who sounds like Saira Khan wearing a Hijab)literally tore him to shreds.At one point Farage alleged that 200,000 Muslim women wear the Burka and when Sopel asked where he got the figure from as he’d been told it was 2,000 said that he’d go this info from “experts”but couldn’t name the actual “experts” or source for this allegation

    Engineer says:

    Not altogether sure about this. Think UKIP might not have the nuance quite right.

    There are some women (and men) for whom the burkha should be made compulsory. Harperson, for example, and Pollytwaddle. (In John Prescott’s case, a marquee might be a better option than a burkha, but the basic arguement holds.) If in each case, the burkha could be made soundproof so much the better; in Pollytwaddle’s case, it must be designed to prevent access to computer keyboards or typewriters.

    jgm2 says:

    Of course a ‘double-dip’ is a threat. In fact it’s a nailed on certainty. We’ve borrowed 300bn quid since the beginning of the recession and most folk expect that to have bought a single quarter of growth last year. 1bn quid worth of ‘growth’ for 300bn quid of subsidy. What do you think will happen to that ‘growth’ if we stop borrowing an average of 200bn quid a year?

    It’ll fucking well disappear innit?

    Nailed on.

    Of course we’re going to have a double dip. Big fuicking deal. I’m more pissed off about the 300bn quid we’ve borrowed to engineer 1bn quid of ‘growth’. Just so the Maximum Imbecile can swagger onto the TV screens and declare the recession over.

    Meanwhile out-sourcing agencies are fucking swamped with middle-class professionals clutching their P45s.

    My wife and I are pensioners now and apparently get the worst state pension in Europe. We do have small private pensions that we saved hard for, they would have been bigger of course but The Great Gloom stole a great lump out of them as one of his first of many acts of Social Engineering. We can’t do a lot nowadays as finances are very tight, even driving a few miles to see the grandchildren has to be budgeted for carefully.

    Meanwhile in the New Affordable houses close by the lights stay on all night, windows are open even on the coldest days. Mind you the unemployed and grossly obese occupants are wonderful parents as they always stand by the back door to smoke their cigarettes before going to the supermarket in their nice new car.

    How Zombie Brown, Barmy Balls and the Smarmy Mandleson have not been lynched I do not know but I live in hope. It seems to me that the country and the TV sycophantic news people need to get some balls and tell Balls to go forth and multiply before criticizing anyone else about Social Engineering.

One advantage of the burkha, no one can see how embarrassed you are when you are at wandering about in public looking like a berk! (sorry…….)

    We are the heir to Blair, we are Blue Labour.

    Fuck no.

    It is because Haiti is so spectacularly fucked up even before the earthquake that it has a permananet occupation of Red Cross, Save the Children and UN offices. When the UN says it is the biggest disaster ever they mean it is the biggest disaster ever for their salaried employees.

    In order for a recovery to take place businesses will need to raise finance to expand stocks, extend credit to customers, recruit staff and acquire equipment. The banks are not going to lend this because they are still broken. Expect a slow recovery, at best, with more businesses that have been just hanging on going bust.

    If our public finances had been managed at least as competently as, say, those of a drunken sailor on his first shore leave, we would be able to help things along by expanding the public sector, but since it’s already bloated to bursting we can’t do that. Stir into the mix the Revenue catching up with unpaid tax and you have the recipe for a double dip.

    The first priority should be to mend the banks. Unfortunately the banks have learned nothing and forgotten nothing.

Until they deal with the REAL problem, they’ll simply spray YOUR money all over the fucking place – tax subsidies for you to buy Korean, Japanese and German cars for instance – in the HOPE that private consumption will replace Government subsidy. It won’t.

    The US and UK consumer is now dead, defunct, kicked the bucket, SKINT, has no more money, no more credit lines, no more house as an ATM machine. The consumption orgy is OVER. It’s back to a real economy as agianst the phoney economy we’ve had for the last 10 years. And the Government debt just makes it worse, much, much worse.

    You are right about the Landcruisers and tax free salaries. The only useful thing the UN does is support the motor and sat phone industry.

They won’t let locals distribute the aid because they are frit that they will no longer be able to justify their non jobs, so they invent stories that starving locals are all looters.

    The most useful thing in UN aid are their light blue tarpaulins complete with UN logos, these Tarpaulins are the best that money can buy and if they fall into the hands of locals they immediately become the perfect shelter from the elements and a home, far better than the flimsy plastic tents that are too small to stand up in and stiflingly hot in tropical climates that are usually handed out.

    The Government has been paying its credit card bill, with its credit card.

    The financial markets know that this is unsustainable. They also know that the tories will probably form the next administration and *might* possibly stop doing that. BUT, without any large scale increase in manufacturing for export, this country has NOTHING to replace the borrowing with, hence the inevitable arrival of a double dip recession. Whoever wins the next election, we WILL have another recession.

    What is really scary is that some commentators are saying that the economy will soon be sound enough for interest rate rises.

    A combination of that and the massive tax increases that blu-labour are looking at will kill off any chance of recovery.

    The EU will not allow the tories to make our business sector competitive enough to attract enough inward investment to make any difference. As it is a lot of our companies are relocating to Hungary and other former Soviet satellite nations.

    The tories are set to inherit a scorched earth, but they refuse to get any new seeds or fertiliser.

    Labour are utterly sick, vile, evil even. But the tories are NOT offering a worthy or even a slightly capable alternative.

    Very true. This is how the labour party succumbed to the “third way” Marxist-fascist removal of our control over our country as it was unlawfully handed over to a foreign power. Labour were taken over from the inside by the same philosophy that is now destroying the conservative party from the top.

    The tories have been infiltrated by the same “third way” philosophy and I am not going to vote for that. Cameron has castrated the tory party, and turned it into another Third way treason church.

    Why the FUCK do tories blame real tories (for wanting a return to true conservatism) instead of their treasonous “leader” for cutting the balls off the tory party?

    I am not going to vote for higher taxes, more political correctness, more powers transferred to the EU, more climate taxes. I am not going to vote for a party that cannot act on immigration or on making businesses flexible enough to compete in global markets.

    Why should I vote for more labour policies under a tory badge? IF I want real conservative policies, It makes more sense to vote for a party that offers me those policies. The Conservative party does NOT offer me any real alternative, in terms of policies or general guiding philosophy, to what we have with Brown.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
