      Even if they were unsure if they had botherd to check the other feeds or ask their ‘handlers’ in the studio they would have found out quickly enough.
      Sky News needs to get rid of the airheads like Burley.

          What happened to senior journalists running the news networks, didn’t Kay ‘graduate’ from TV-AM? What next, Mrs Draper fronting serious news shows??

          FDR was at least one that comes to mind who used the Second World War as an excuse to extend his Presidency beyond the normal two terms in office limit, after all you can’t hold an election in a State of Emergency as it means having to brief new leadership which can have as many drastic consequences as giving the enemy your battle plans, so I guess that means B-ruin will be PM forever as we’re in a perpetual State of Emergency all the time.

        The so-called Mother of Parliaments has been well and truly castrated by a succession of administrations, but particularly by NuLiebour. It is now just an irrelevance, since we have an over-weening executive, and MPs (many of whom are kept quiet by payments for memberships of a variety of time-wasting committees) who have failed miserably to hold the executive to account. The whole HofC is just a hugely ineffective and expensive talking shop – when they can be bothered to turn up of course. And we wonder why we have so much badly drafted legislation? A combination of excessive use of the guillotine, the number of bills being rammed through (4000 in 13 years) and where no one seems interested in challenging this state of affairs.

        And I don’t expect this cosy consensus to change after this shower of greedy incompetents have been booted out – to be replaced by another equally ineffective bunch of time-wasters. The Political Class has us by the short and curlies, and it will take a revolution to change this now.

          QT Tonight…..Thought Rory Stewart prospective Tory candidate for the Borders really good. His analysis on Afghansitan brilliant,but then it should be as he was there as a diplomat until recently. He runs a charity in Afghanistan.Also Harvard professor.Clever young guy should go far. Bumbling Hattersly vile as usual. Ruth Lee the economist got very hot under the collar regarding Jan Moir’s article about Stephen Gately.Always thought she was very very masculine. Of course Al-Jabeeba allowed a question about that idiot Winterton. Good old class warfare from Hattersley.
          Audience a bit difficult as it was from Labour’s heartlands Middlesbrough. Talking about Corus.I used to deal with this plant when it was part of BSC Middlesbrough. Compared to the rest of the BSC plants in the UK they were wonderful.I never ever had problems with them which is more than could be said for the rest of BSC (especially the plant in Scotland).It’s very sad when good plants like this one shut down.Rory Stewart made the point that McBroon has left it a bit late to help the workforce.The old class warriors in the audience were trying to blame the Tories.But this is down to old McBroon and Tata.

      Britain is not far behind the US:

      1. Politicians are filthy liars and thieves controlled by jews.

      2. The rich and members of the jew-controlled kleptocracy, do not pay taxes.

      3. The filth in parliament create at least one new law every day (there are over 50,000 offences people can commit, and ignorance is no defence, even though most of the offences are kept secret from the public and couched in impenetrable language that can be spun to send the poor down and let the rich off).

      4. The judiciary are fucking corrupt filth controlled by jews. Look at the token black pig as Attorney General – she wouldn’t pass ‘A’ law, and always interprets the law in favour of jews and the rich, and against ordinary people.

      5. And so on and so on ……. destruction of education – destruction of family and community – hobbling the current and future generations with massive national debts – destruction of manufacturing and industry – destruction of culture, religion and national identity ………. The filth in parliament are following an algorithm to completely destroy civilisation.

      In the medium-term, I think the trash in the public sector will be really looking for revenge against the public, when the gravy-train is not running as fast after the election, when cuts have to made to the millions of malignant trash in the public sector. They will be looking to thieve as much as they can from the public to boost their income to maintain their bloated salaries, disgusting bonuses, and obscene pensions.

          We in the UK would do the same if a bunch of foreigners carried out an execution on our soil.

          I find it interesting that they chose a modern 5* hotel for the killing – anyone knows they are infested with high quality CCTV, as they generally don’t like things happening to their guests!

          The UAE have a pretty modern and sophisticated immigration system, due to the huge number of expatriates and transit passengers that go through what is quite a small country. All passports are scanned and manually checked.

          The chances are that the photos on the ‘forged’ passports are genuine, and the false IDs might be known to other countries through which the assassins travelled.

          Interesting to note that this seems to be a bigger news story in the UK than in the UAE at the moment, although it was big a couple of weeks ago.

          There are not many murders in Dubai, and most get solved quickly. I guess the Emiratis now know they have next to no chance of getting anyone for this one!

      Cameron’s as bad as Blair and Brown. He has made no secret in many interviews of attending church regularly and has even less scruples about ‘doing god’ than his role model Blair

      Cameron tells award-winning journalist Johann Hari that ‘our Lord Jesus’ would back equality and gay rights if he were around today. He says he doesn’t want to get into a row with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams. ‘But I think the Church has to do some of the things that the Conservative Party has been through – sorting this issue out and recognising that full equality is a bottom line full essential.’

In Christian churches there are services in which ashes are used to mark a cross on people’s foreheads.

      Pound down 1% against the Euro in the past 24 hours, that’s everyone’s holidays going up rthis summer (if we can afford them)

      Times and Telegraph both with devastating headlines on the economy, yet seem have been ignored by the TV and radio media this morning in favour of the government’s health agenda and a letter to the FT??

      What the fuck is the world coming to – this country is now so far down the toilet we need the election yesterday!

        It does fluctuate a hell of a lot though, and its still better than it was … perhaps a month ago? (vague guess, better than most of the last 12 months). The markets appear to have been prepared for this level of economy-crapness for some time.

        Not very impressed with the HEADLINES (!!) – seems to be stuff we already sort of know anyway. I read one paragraph that said “shock horror, economists say Darling’s figures aren’t far off the mark”.

          The Pound was 1.639 USD a month ago and now its 1.541.
          I make that a 6% drop.

          It only fluctuates downwards.

          It’s also significantly down against the Zimbabwean dollar.

          You’re welcome to keep your money in sterling, but I know what I’m going to do.

          Pound/UD$ rate is the worst for 9 months, since last May.

          It’s because the British economy is completely fucked!!

          We are 848,500,000,000 in debt, a debt that is going up (on January’s figures, which are the best of the financial year) by
          £300,000,000 A DAY
          £208,000 A MINUTE
          £3,500 A SECOND

          Half the borrowing is excessive spending over tax revenues, the other
          HALF IS INTEREST PAYMENTS ON THE MASSIVE FUCKING DEBT

    BBC “Tories ‘not attending’ talks on future of elderly care”

    The Tories may not be attending the talks but i would say the 80%+ of the money required for the care of the elderly will be paid for by Tory Voters.

      This is not a discussion about ‘free’ care for the old, care costs money, it is NOT free. In Scotland, it is not free, it comes from tax (UK tax). This debate ahead of an election being called is a smoke screen. When the time comes for help, at what ever time of life this occurs, we should be able to get that help, based upon your contribution, be it education, health, care etc.

      I have the answer. Give these air heads like Burley and Bultrao their own programmes and see how many people would watch the shit and would
      anyone seriously advertise their products while these doom brains are
      on.
      Everyone of them always believes that they are so fucking funny and laugh their heads off at their own jokes.

    It’s pretty sad and pathetic that there are so many stupid comments about “God botherers ” and general mocking of an ancient religious practice. Only fools celebrate their ignorance and insensivity. The ashes represent a very simple and very profound truth, from ash we came and to ash we will return.
