Balls : Blame Blairites If Labour Loses

A Blairite source tells Guido that Ed Balls is already telling Labour colleagues that the blame for a potential Labour defeat lies with the Blairites for (a) rocking the boat with repeated attempted coups (b) getting caught money grubbing. Coincidentally he is expected to be Charlie Whelan’s chosen candidate against Blair’s protege Miliband. Nothing like getting your attack in first…

          Definitely something interesting that the MPs caught here have all pissed off Brown in spadefuls recently.

          Nick Robinson almost alluded to it this morning that this could all be a set-up from the Bunker to get rid of them before the campaign really starts, or at least make sure they leave Parliament with no severance and no chance of employment outside….

            FFS we all saw Hoon, Hewitt & Byers last night Fawkes.It’s not a secret.
            It’s not a fucking conspiracy theory for the Labour backbenchers to put 2 + 2 together with the fact that EVERYONE knows the King and Queen of Fuckwits Hoon and Hewittt were behind the bungled coup attempt
            Pretty obvious where blame is going to fall and fall hard.

            The Blairites are still going to get the blame if Balls fell dead tomorrow.
            And Brown is still going Bye Bye because blaming the Blairites won’t save his skin either. But Balls is simply too revolting and close to Brown to ever get the job. He’s pissing in the wind if he is telling backbenchers what they already know. It won’t help his chances one iota.

          • The fact that Hoon and Hewitt have been suspended has nothing to do with the “snow plot”, and Gordon’s demented desire for revenge. After all, half the party wants Gordon out, and we can hardly suspend them all, much as we might like to do this.

            We have to be seen to be taking firm action, which is why we have firmly ruled out an enquiry. I note that those horrid baby-eating Tories haven’t suspended their MP, which shows how weak they are. In contrast, Gordon’s decision not to suspend one of the Labour MPs embroiled in this affair should be glossed over, and is a sign of Gordon’s strength, not weakness. Er, or something.

            Fucking hell. They haven’t even called the election yet and they are already starting fighting the post-election defeat melt-down like ferrets in a sack.

            The economy is tanking, we are borrowing more and more every hour to pretend it is recovering and all this will have to be repaid with interest from an economy that cannot even afford the interest at the moment, let alone the capital amount outstanding. We need a bunch of people in charge who can fix this mess and clean up the enormous pile of financial shit that labour has created. What are we getting? The cabinet fighting like 13 year old bitches with a crush and rank corruption throughout this rotten, foetid necrotic labour party. Clashes of ego and undeserved vanity intertwined with idealistic and thoroughly fantasy policies from labour that bust through desperate and land squarely in delusional.

          At first I thought that Balls must become the next leader of the Liebore Party as he would render them utterly unelectable.

          The only problem with that is the number of people moving to the Bleedin Nasty Party would increase, making them a larger political force in this country, and that would be immensely worrying. Shamefully the number of people prepared to vote for such a disgusting bunch of racist socilaists is already far too high, and this almost solely due to a Government that has for 13 years signally failed to help the very people they claim to represent.

          The trampling over of hope, contempt of personal ambition and a need to control us all. Those are Labour’s core beliefs.

            Or, in the case of the party that Fawkes will not allow even to be named here, the smear is sufficient. Combine the lying smear with the dread accusation of racism, that most heinous of crimes, defined entirely at the accuser’s whim from one minute to the next, and all further thought on the subject is verboten. Blasphemy, no less.

    There’s been such a radical change of direction from the bunker these past few days I have to wonder who’s really pulling the strings here.

    There’s been a continual dip-feed of “Tony’s going to come back and help us in the election” but now all I’m seeing is the last of the Blairites being purged from the McTwat gummint of no talent.

    Add on to that the undoubted hold that Unite have over Zanu and this is starting to look like the Labour of Callaghan, Wilson and Foot. With all the industrial action and the debt, it’s starting to feel mighty like it too.

    Everyone in bunker-land must be aware how much damage this is doing to ZaNu but they don’t seem to be able to stop the complete implosion of “the project”.

        I’m somewhat skeptical of the polling that’s going on at the moment – it looks like there’s a highly targeted sample group being polled, not very representative of the country as a whole.

        What concerns me is the areas of the country – like Newcastle – where 70% of the employment is Public sector. That and the vast pool of benefit-dependents and those milking it from various tax/pension/family credit schemes. Turkeys and Christmas and all that….

        If – as is widely reported – this one is really going to be decided on the marginals, I believe that’s where the damage is being done – but they’re notoriously difficult to poll and then group to get anything like a credible national picture.

    And you’ve done something else, you have selected black and minority ethnic candidates, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, right across our country.

And to people who say to me that this modernisation, that this change was just some sort of paint job, I would say this: think of the young black British boy, looking at Parliament, looking at Britain and thinking, “What’s my role? Do I belong? How am I going to get on?” He can look at the Tory party, yes, the Tory party, and he can see Kwasi Kwarteng, Sam Gyimah, Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones, Shaun Bailey, Helen Grant and say, “They’ve got to the top of British politics, I belong here, and so can I”.

    “And think about that young Muslim woman, living in Britain, wondering what her role is in modern Britain, who is able to switch on the television and watch, in primetime TV, on Question Time, as Sayeeda Warsi destroyed that ghastly piece of filth, Nick Griffin, and think yes, yes, I belong here, it’s my country too.

    “That’s what we’ve done as a party, we can now look the British people in the eye and say: this country, our country, this tolerant, compassionate, brilliant, multi-racial country, we are with you, we are like you, we are for you, we are ready to serve you, this modern Conservative Party made its choice and it’s never going back.

    Thank you for signing our Fire Byers! petition.

    In just 24 hours more than 4,250 of you have demanded the Queen strip the disgraced Stephen Byers of his Right Honourable title and membership of the Privy Council. We will be delivering the names to Buckingham Palace.

    The Sunlight Centre for Open Politics is an anti-corruption campaigning group with a long term goal of achieving an open and transparent British political system. We have had many successes recently, including triggering the police investigation into Jim Devine MP, and a number of Parliamentary Standards Commission investigations. Our research department’s policy paper, Disinfecting Parliament, has been studied and requested by numerous bodies including the Kelly Inquiry, the new expenses panel IPSA, and the Tory policy team. You can buy or download a copy of Disinfecting Parliament.

    The Sunlight Centre’s work is dependent on kind donations from our supporters. We would be extremely grateful if you are able to help us out and further our campaign toward an open and transparent Westminster by giving even a small donation. We will be sure to keep you informed all our work. We have some excting (sic) projects at the moment as well as ongoing investigations. We will very soon be shining the light of public scrutiny onto the Rt. Hon. Gordon Brown MP…

    Best,

      Your next problem is to show that the formation of al-Qaeda was primarily a response to perceived oppression in Saudi Arabia. This seems unlikely, considering that Saudi is much the kind of Wahhabist Islamic theocracy that al-Qaeda would like to establish everywhere, or least within the Dar al-Islam.

    “Blame Blairites If Labour Loses”

    That’s not just the Balls line, it’s also the BBC line too.

    The BBC and labour are both blaming:
    1) Thatcher for the BA strikes.
    2) Blairites for the expenses and lobbying corruption/fraud.
    3) The tories for the banking collapse.
    4) The americans for the recession.
    5) The head of an anti-bullying charity for Brown being someone with the mental capacity of a tantrumming 2 year old.
    6) Dr Kelly for starting an illegal war.
    7) The military for soldiers having to buy their own kit, and then dying when they can’t afford it out of their own pocket.

    You couldn’t make this stuff up; labour/BBC really are both evil incarnate. If this kind of evil lying shit had been done when the tories were in power, the BBC would have been in a 24/7 emergency broadcast mode and they wouldn’t have stopped until Parliament had been disolved.

      The politicians and Lobby hacks as well as senior civil servants have all been pissing in the same pot for too long.

        Did you notice how there was no comment about Byers et al from the NuLiebore apologists in chief, namely Nick Robinson, Kevin MacQuire and Michael White.

        After the selling influence for £3 to £5k a day (Lobbygate) scandal, even these serial self deniers cannot find words to defend the indefensible.

        They now realise the game is up and their career propects after the 6th of May look about as rosy as McBride, Draper, Byers, Hewitt, Hoon, Devine, Chaytor, Morley, Uddin, Scotland, Blackburn, Truscott, Snape and Moonie, Moran, Mandelson, Balls, Cooper, Harperson, Darling and especially Brown.

    Jim Callaghan was another unmandated Labour Prime Minister who took over from the popular, charismatic and flawed Harold Wilson. Following unrest from the unions in the winter of discontent, Callaghan pushed Labour into the wilderness for 18 years.

    Gordon Brown has inflicted significantly more damage on the Labour Party than Callaghan and it will likely be more than 18 years before we see another Labour Government.

    Poor old CooperBalls will be remembered as the political ASBO thugs of Gordon Brown’s unmandated premiership.

The Prime Minister feels the pressure:

“I have to say that after the events I have been facing over the last few days, assassination would be a welcome release.”



It was only a tiny tiny collision.
