          Looks like the Brown’s are trying to destroy English traditions and make them British.

          Will they be doing the same with Scottish traditions? I think not.
          The British Highland games and British Whisky come to mind.

            Use Roosters, an Irish red potato, cut into almost ovoid shapes, boil until soft at the edges but not too soft to fall apart, rough them up a little by rolling around in a colander, or using a fork. Preheat Crisp ‘n Dry oil, or goose fat if preferred in a roasting pan, add potatoes and be generous with the salt. Cook at 200 electric for about 45′ – 55′, turning occasionally.

            Take national food of each of the 27 member states of the EU and mix together.
            Polish cabbage, French Onions, Spanish Oranges, Greek Yoghurt, Turkish Delight, Swiss Chocolate, Russian grain, German sausage, Dutch edam, Belgium sprouts, Irish potatoes, etc.

            Stir thoroughly until the mixture is viscous and difficult to separate.
            Leave to harden for a decade. Explain to masses that the dinner is inedible in its current form. Organise a new, more compatible Lisbon Menu. Appoint EU Super chef to supervise.

So long as I can where a burkha next time I go on a pub crawl (more fun than dressing as a pirate i suppose!) i think its only fair that women can wear them if they see fit. 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…….)

      Repealing the 111 tax hikes on the English middle classes?

      Third way Tories – socialism with a hint of blue.

      Fuck the Tories – they have only themselves to blame when people like me waste our vote on others.

    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.

    IMF says double-dips a threat

    also seems to be saying that the world wide recession is a white anglo saxon effect because the upturn is being led by emerging economies in Asia, adding that the IMF sees China’s growth in 2010 close to the levels seen before crisis.

      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.

          And it is so, so obvious, right from the very start of this depression. 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.

          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.

          While labour are pouring petrol on the fire of this nation’s destruction, the tories are offering kerosene as an alternative.

      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.
