New Labour Poster

Last week Liam Byrne confirmed that a re-elected Labour government would have to make bigger public spending cuts than even Margaret Thatcher did.

This week wee Douglas Alexander, Labour’s election campaign co-ordinator, writes: “Labour has called on its growing number of online supporters to lend their creative talents to designing the Party’s next campaign poster.”

Labour’s netroots have gone into Photoshop overdrive using the hashtag #peopleposters. Ever willing to be helpful, Guido put two and two together to illustrate a bit of political cross-dressing.

          • Disaffected says:

            I prefer the Baldemort picture. Liam the Loser should not be mentioned in the same breath as Maggie. The picture also suites BBC’s Nick Robinscum, he is on one today criticising Tories again. The bloke does not understand the huge amount of backroom staff built up in public services over 13 years and if there were a mass culling it would not affect front line services one jot. He needs to visit a few police stations and hospitals during the day and then go back at 7pm to compare the number. All the Statisticians have gone home- Brown he won’t let you down.

            Trust Brown’s judgment, Brown robbed everyone’s pension in 1997 and is now wondering what should be done to finance people in their old age- Brown won’t let you down. Brown sold our gold when it was at its lowest price costing the UK £7 billion pounds- Brown won’t let you down. Brown improperly financed the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, thousands of people lost their lives because Brown did not provide enough money. Brown’s denied this in complete contrast to the evidence of military chiefs. He then realised he did not fund the wars properly and wrote to confirm he was wrong- Brown won’t let you down. Brown is the one who was given a good economy and now it is bankrupt- Brown won’t let you down. Brown still claims for a second home that he does not have, brown won’t let you down. Brown recently told the country- I won’t let you down. He cannot be trusted. Brown has let you down for 13 years, it is time for change, vote him out.

    He started with Thug Whelan

    He continued with Mcbride, Balls, Draper and others.


    This is a man who has disgraced the only two offices of state he has held.

      Bye, bye extreme AGW, hello energy security says:

      Political leaderships in the OECD countries are starting to understand the credibility loss they have suffered on this issue.

      The timing is bad, since it comes hard on the heels of their bungled, expedient and massively expensive bailouts of failed finance sector gamblers and both we, and they can be sure low carbon vanity projects will do less than nothing to trim rising oil prices.

      Losing the climate issue after losing the finance issue makes it clear to everyone outside the charmed circle of government “expert panels”, and increasingly to the friendliest of government friendly media, that the future for prestigious green energy vanity projects is uncertain if not cancelled.


      • 106
        This is what they used to say says:

        THE Gulf Stream currents that give Britain its mild climate have weakened dramatically, offering the first firm scientific evidence of a slowdown that threatens the country with temperatures as cold as Canada’s.

        The Atlantic Ocean “conveyor belt” that carries warm water north from the tropics has weakened by 30 per cent in 12 years, scientists have discovered. The findings, from the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton, give the strongest indication yet that Europe’s central heating system is breaking down under the impact of global warming.

        Scientists have long predicted that melting ice caps could disrupt the currents that keep Britain at least 5C (40F) warmer than it should be, but the new research suggests that this is already under way. It points to a cooling of 1C over the next decade or two, and an even deeper freeze could follow if the Gulf Stream system were to shut down altogether.


        • 109
          This is what they say now says:

          The Gulf Stream does not appear to be slowing down, say US scientists who have used satellites to monitor tell-tale changes in the height of the sea.

          Confirming work by other scientists using different methodologies, they found dramatic short-term variability but no longer-term trend.

          A slow-down – dramatised in the movie The Day After Tomorrow – is projected by some models of climate change.

          • Herald Tribune says:

            Last year, swindlers cheated governments of (EURO)5 billion, or $6.8 billion, by selling carbon credits and then disappearing before paying the required value-added tax on the transactions.

            In January, swindlers used faked e-mail messages to obtain access codes for individual accounts on national registries that make up the bloc’s Emission Trading System and then used the stolen codes to gain access to electronic certificates that represented quantities of greenhouse gases.

      What the English people haven’t worked out yet is that they don’t actually have an English Parliament.

      Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland do, but England doesn’t. England participates in the Westminster Parliament in which Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish MPs can vote as well, but this privilege is not reciprocated by allowing English MPs to vote in the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish Parliaments.

      So why limit the complaints to the Scots. Think Wales and Northern Ireland too and whilst you are thinking, consider quite why England doesn’t have it’s own parliament and people who actually have their own parliaments to make a nuisance of themselves in are allowed to fuck England up.

      If there had been an English Parliament, there would never have been a Gordon Brown, or a Tony Blair come to that…
