If It Is Good Enough for the Troops,
It Is Good Enough for Politicians

Denis MacShane is an odious man, some of the stuff he has written in recent months smearing eurosceptics as basically neo-nazis really crossed over the line. He has been comprehensively debunked time and time again by Britain’s former ambassador to Poland, Charles Crawford. Nevertheless the media still give the professional Pole a platform, the Guardian gave him space on the Polish air crash tragedy yesterday.

What struck Guido reading his eulogy to the Polish president, Lech Kaczynski, wasn’t the shameless shift in gear by MacShane.  He called him a “Polish patriot” who “reached out Poland’s Jewish community” so soon after accusing Kaczynski together with his party of racism and homophobia when they allied with the Tories in the new eurosceptic ECRG grouping in the EU parliament.

No, what really stunned Guido was this line on the air crash once again revealing the sense of self-entitlement of our political class:

There is a meanness about the treatment of government representatives who, in the name of finance ministry parsimony, are expected to fly travel in outdated, low-tech, uncomfortable planes.

You mean like the ones your government sends our troops and Nimrod pilots to die in?

      will Green Dave restore power to the UK? says:

      There is no doubt that Labour wants a Federal Europe. The whole global warming agenda is to set up a world government and Europe is the start. Although Dave has positioned his MEPs apart from the federalists, his pandering to the Green movement alarms me. The greens do not want to see individual nations all doing their own thing, they want the whole world to do what THEY (the Greens) want.

        Socialism is an “Internationalist” movement. We should not be surprised that the Labour Party, Closet Communists to a (Gender-free) person and member, wants a Federal State run by… Socialists.

            It’s main goal is perpetual power and wealth for the elites that have run the country and much of the west for the last 100 years or more, with `demoicracy` being a NWO media led panto for the little people every 5 years, where they dictate who you will vote for.

            It has NO goodwill, no good intentions, it wages war, famine, backs despots and bankrupts nations.

    Of course, it also looks likely this crash was absolutely nothing to do with the aircraft, and more to do with sticking to a flawed plan despite circumstances dictating otherwise.

        Another Engineer says:

        Yes. Wasn’t suggesting otherwise. Nimrods are of course based on the world’s first passenger jet, which gives you an idea of how old the design is.

        In this case, however, it does appear that the aircraft had nothing to do with it.

        Which makes MacShane doubly wrong.

          Anonymous says:

          Nimrod isn’t just based on the comet, it used the same airframe.

          And guess what, the new Nimrod, uses the old Nimrod’s airframes (i.e. cut the wings off and bolt on some new jet engines).

          • Nick2 says:

            Yes – and the contractors responsible for that part of the restoration/’upgrade’ have belatedly discovered that every Nimrod’s airframe is unique – ie it’s even more time consuming and expensive to preserve the aircraft than the MOD previously estimated.

            That and the rigidly defined areas of ‘non responsibility’ that allow a Nimrod to be expensively restored and still dangerous to fly (as the heating system hadn’t been covered by the restoration contract) means that once again the UK will have a vastly over-priced, even more over-budget, under-performing & extremely late defence white elephant.

            Maybe it would just be best to buy US planes/ships/subs etc. We know that we’d pay through the nose but at least our military might get kit on time that would match what our largest ally uses.

          • Dick Tator says:

            Amazing thing is that the US equivalent is actually cheaper to buy and service than the Nimrod.

            There is a good reason that an off-the-scale idiot is sometimes referred to as a “nimrod”.

      Dingo Stole My Baby says:


      The Polish crash had nothing whatever to do with the airworthiness of the aircraft – unlike the Nimrod crash.

      MacShane presumably thinks he should be entitled to a personal jet to ferry him between Rotherham (if he ever goes there!) and all these parts of Europe where he has such an interest in fighting neo-Nazis. You’d have thought his time would be better spent fighting the BNP here in the UK – but I guess you don’t get AirMiles for that.

          South of the M4 says:

          Then they were not doing their job. Every airport has a minimum descent altitude below which you do not go if you are not fitted with auto-land equipment, or if you are not visual with the runway. This guarantees terrain clearance. If you bust a level, you risk disaster. If indeed it was ‘peer pressure’ then a good pilot would have resisted and gone somewhere else. Enough fuel would have been carried for an already planned alternate aerodrome.

        That sounds the most plausible explanation, and apparently the President had “previous” when it came to pressuring pilots to press on in dangerous conditions, in order to meet his schedule. However, if the conditions were as dire as they appear to have been, dense fog down to ground level, why didn’t the ground controllers effectively close their airfield and ban attempts to land?

    Now Guido, you must understand that soldiers aren’t “government representatives”, any more than are the opposition politicians who besmirch our country by disagreeing with the same government representatives. Annointed by their love for Government and its love for them, the likes of MacShane have a superior function and role in our society to go with their superior sensitivity and moral judgment exercised on our behalf, and ought to be treated with proper veneration.

      This is true, plus they have big life insurance and generous dependants’ pensions and are therefore a much more expensive burden on taxpayers in the event of an early death, unlike soldiers who are really cheap ‘n easy to replace.

    Don’t forget the lack of helicoptors that increases the size of the butcher’s bill, and the lack of manpower that means that soldiers spend too long in combat, also increasing casualties. Add on the total lack of proper psychiatric care after combat which results in 10% of jail places being taken up by soldiers who can’t cope with civvy life.

          When the MOD gives them the push many milboys still haven’t developed the skills that would allow them to survive/thrive outside the forces – mainly as whilst in the military family they never needed to. I’ve never heard of a homeless/incarcerated ex milgirl so presumably their motivations for joining are different.

        McShit is also obviously one of the socialist traitors who seem to think a nations borders must be porous and a county should just let whoever the fuck wants to come and live there. Clearly the Swiss model of actually controlling immigration to be of benefit to the nation is not something our Nu Labour fuckwits can understand, or associate themselves with. With all the PC slime oozing out he describe the xenophobia and racism inherent in the Swiss society he sees. Perhaps the Swiss believe that those born of the nation and who have worked to create its wealth have the right to enjoy it without having to pay for and pander to endless foriegners who have done nothing to earn those rights. Pure Nu Labour: endless immigration to ‘adjust’ the society in their own image, smear those who oppose it as racists.

        He also seems to have a bee in his bonnet of the swiss model of democracy. Of course a Nu Labour champagne socialist doesnt like the idea of the people actually having much of a say in how they are governed…why if they did they would be able to get away with their endless social engineering and the treacherous destruction of our way of life.

    I am particularly pleased to note that the Prime Minister has blocked the Peerage of General Sir Richard Dannat.

    He is a disgraceful man who has spoken up for our troops when they have been sent to war without equipment and criticised the stupidity of political decisions. And he had the gall to win a Military Cross for courage.

    Contrast that with John Prescott and Ruth Kelly who will get Peerages.

    Lady Kelly of Opus Dei and Lord Prescott of Tracey upon Temple. Two of the most courageous, intelligent and economical Politicians of our time.

    God Bless you Prime Minister for recognising those who have fearlessly served this Nation.

    Can't remember my moniker says:

    I think, late in the day, I may have uncovered McBroon’s secret.

    We tend to think that he stands at the despatch box saying, “tractor stats, tractor stats, tractor stats”.

    We have convinced ourselves because that is what it sounds like. Although encumbered with a strange accent, even by local standards, he is actually a very intelligent man (according to unconfirmed reports).

    The truth may be that he is not saying “tractor stats” at all but “Tractatus”. As any member of his local Kirkcaldy Working Mens’ Club could explain to you, the Tractatus (full title: Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus) is Wittgenstein’s first systematic philosophical work and the only book of his published whilst this particular iron hoof, so sorry, great philosopher, was still alive.

    So what? You might reasonably ask. Well, lets just establish James Gordon McBroon’s birthday and you will begin to see more clearly what I mean. It is 20th February.

    All you philosophical types out there, including the entire esteemed company of the aforementioned Kirkcaldy WMC, will know that the Tractatus consists of staccato paragraphs, numbered from one to seven, split into subsections, also numbered. This is because it is actually a horoscope, which is why people have had so much difficulty in understanding it properly over the years.

    So you should take the birthday of the one-eyed mong, so sorry, our esteemed Prime Minister, and move the decimal point up one to the left (because, if you have ever been Chancellor of the Exchequer, that is what you do with decimal points – as many times as they’ll let you) and you get 2.02. It is a good example of how to make debt appear smaller, but I digress.

    Now turn up this number in the Tractatus and you find the following:

    2.02 Objects are simple. (just three words – that is all. )

    So now you have it! I am simple, you are simple, he is simple. We, (collective) you and they are simple. Every being and thing is simple, including our Prime Minister.

    Ergo, running the economy is simple, abolishing boom and bust is simple, following Golden Rules is simple, selling the UK’s gold at the right price is simple, avoiding a house price bubble is simple, regulating banks is simple, paying off the deficit is simple whilst closing the gap between rich and poor is absolute child’s play, and so it goes on.

    We can all remember him preaching these ideas, inspired by his father and his hero. So, as they ask about his half-brother mentalist, Derren Brown, “How did he do?” I’m not going to answer that but the electorate will. That will also be very simple.

    But I suspect that the legend attached to McBroon’s portrait on the staircase at 10 Downing Street will consist of just one four letter word (no … Nokia has five.) That simple word will be:

            They were also saying, “”a great broon pig to haud the butter in.” I am still working on that one and offer it to you, in case it helps your theory.

Complete bollocks ! All my family have already opted out.There’s no way I would trust anybody in the NHS/Government with access to my medical records or that they would be secure given the governments dismal record.

    In the fierce battle between the parties over who is best-placed to handle the economy, Mr Cameron’s would-be Chancellor George Osborne is seen as the worst possible option to take charge of Britain’s finances. Alistair Darling was voted the best Chancellor with 23 per cent in our poll. Lib Dem finance spokesman Vince Cable was second on 21 per cent with Mr Osborne trailing in third place with the support of just 19 per cent of those surveyed. The remaining 37 per cent are listed as “don’t knows”.

      The government are spinning this as a 1% rise, it is ACTUALLY a rise of around 8.5%.

      Also those paying the Higher rate are having a lesser percentage increase in their total contributions than those on the lower rate.

      Sion Simon is also tipped to be Baron Simon of Erdington in the dissoluton Honours although Brown in usual spiteful mode has blocked Sir Richard Dannatt’s elevation and the government has also passed a law forbidding ex-senior army officers appearing in uniform during election without permission apart from certain ceremonial occasions(apparently the RAF and Navy are already banned).Wouldn’t do to remind the electorate of Brown’s responsibility for shortage of helicopters in Afghanistan would it ?

      Endorses everything I have said since 2001. The reason why I sold my house before the crash, emigrated and converted all my Sterling to AUD (@2.54), USD (@2.06), EUR (@1.57). There is only one thing that I got wrong. I never thought the wheels would stay on as long as they did, notwithstanding the 30% devaluation experienced in the value of the pound. I do not say this to boast – one is only as good as one’s next deal – I am still worried and on my guard.

      It is not over either – IMHO it is just starting. I do not say this to crow. I love my country and take no pleasure from seeing it being ruined so thoroughly. That is what prompts me to post here and elsewhere – I cannot wait to see this bunch of charlatans, nay crooks, voted out.

      So when some tat says, “that wanker who can’t even remember his moniker”, it hurts me not. I just wonder how he has looked after his savings (that is a joke, we all know he will not have a pot to piss in.) I wonder how many there are like him out there. What do they know about anything? I sometimes wonder if we can ever get out of the clutches of these ignorant pricks, even with a change of government.

      I am travelling across Europe for a few days so will not be posting much for a while. There are plenty here, from different standpoints, who are doing a great job for personal freedom and responsibility. Good luck to you all and thanks to GF who is not IMO in anyone’s pocket.

    Paper review on Sky – the ex-Labour shop dummy picking out the Tory plans to run schools ‘at a profit’.

    Linking this to the business leaders’ complaints about a NI rise leading to job losses: some of them are directors of companies where (I heard one TV commentator say, can’t recall who) finding an assisitant to help you these days is like looking for ‘hens’ teeth’. From my recent B&Q experience I’d agree – no one around in the aisles, only one till of about eight open and a long disgruntled/frustrated queue at the ‘swipe yourself’ tills.

    A school run for profit will mean fewer/less experienced (hence less expensive staff). If the pointless layers of management go, fine – that would free me up to concentrate on teaching rather than the piles of shite they foist on us – but I can’t see them putting their own heads on the block.

      In a perfect world profitable schools would succeed by educating their pupils properly. In tomorrow’s Britain profitability will probably not have a direct link with student success, it’ll be another stealth form of remuneration for the teachers.

      I’d prefer to see better educated & motivated teachers. In my youth teaching PGCEs were a refuge sought by mediocre graduates to defer working, and to avoid the real world altogether.

      The best thing would be to abandon the discredited UK education qualifications & adopt the International Baccalaureate country-wide. That would restore confidence in qualifications, distinguish between students who are not taxed by GCSE/A levels & hopefully allow some highly educated poly-lingual European teachers to improve standards.

    With almost all of their polls on a strict application of the UNS in “hung parliament territory” it’s maybe a tad surprising that only one – Ben Page of MORI, thinks that that is going to be the outcome.

    Their views are very much in chime with the betting where a Tory overall majority remains the odds on favourite.

    UPDATE Ben Page, the odd one out, has commented on UKPR that his quote in the paper was based on current survey figures. His personal view is a Tory majority. So eight out of eight.”

    This will be the week of manifestos, do you remember that they are not worth the paper they are written on?
    Electoral manifestos

    In some parliamentary democracies, political parties prepare electoral manifestos which set out both their strategic direction and outlines of prospective legislation should they win sufficient support in an election to serve in government. Legislative proposals which are featured in the manifesto of a party which has won an election are often regarded as having superior legitimacy to other measures which a governing party may introduce for consideration by the legislature. Although, in recent decades the status of electoral manifestos has diminished somewhat due to a significant tendency for winning parties to, ignore, indefinitely delay, or even outright reject manifesto policies which were popular with the public upon taking office.

    The LibDems caught out bullshitting(what's new ?) says:

    St Vince getting ripped to shreds by an increasingly incredulous Jon Sopel on Politics Show regarding the LibDems £389 Bombshell Poster. St Vince forced to admit that it’s actually only a guestimation based on his calculations(on the back of a fag packet Vince perhaps ?) and not something that WILL actually happen and that it could have equally been £300 instead or “even £388 or £390 ? “quipped Sopel.

    An aggrieved St Vince basically says look we can’t add footnotes to our election posters for the benefit of media pundit(or perhaps God forbid the electorate Vince ?) saying this could be a different amount or not even correct.

    Tells us all we need to know about the LibDems and their economic guru. Potential Chancellor my arse.Go away and get the fugures correct Vince and then come back.

    O/T but funny…. from the Times

    “On Friday the flight attendants aboard the Eastern Airways Saab 2000 turboprop had thoughtfully stuffed a political magazine into the seat pockets to keep the prime minister and his entourage entertained during the flight from Stansted to Edinburgh. Unfortunately the publication they chose was The Spectator.

    The rabidly Conservative magazine’s cover strapline read: “Give Cameron the keys”, with an image of David Cameron as DCI Gene Hunt, the hero of the 1980s-inspired cop show Ashes to Ashes, who has become an unlikely icon of the election campaign. “

    Nick Griffen says:

    “I am speaking to you from the Cabinet Room at 10, Downing Street. This morning the British Ambassador in Strasburg handed the EU Government a final Note stating that unless we heard from them by 11 0′clock that they were prepared at once to withdraw their laws a state of war would exist between us. I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received, and that consequently this country is at war with the EU. You can imagine what a bitter blow it is to me that all my long struggle to win peace has failed. Yet I cannot believe that there is anything more or anything different that I could have done and that would have been more successful. Up to the very last it would have been quite possible to have arranged a peaceful and honourable settlement between Britain and the EU. But Van Rumpey would not have it. He had evidently made up his mind to assimilate the UK whatever happened, and although he now says he put forward reasonable proposals which were rejected by the others, that is not a true statement. The proposals were never shown to the British people, nor to us, and, though they were announced in a Federal broadcast on Thursday night, Van Rumpey did not wait to hear comments on them, but ordered his lawyers to cross out the frontier the next morning. His action shows convincingly that there is no chance of expecting that this man will ever give up his practice of using force to gain his will. He can only be stopped by force. We and Greece are to-day, in fulfillment of our obligations, going to the aid of everyone, who is so bravely resisting this wicked and unprovoked attack upon our people. We have a clear conscience. We have done all that any country could do to establish peace, but a situation in which no word given by Van Rumpey’s ruler could be trusted and no people or country could feel themselves safe had become intolerable. And now that we have resolved to finish it, I know that you will all play your part with calmness and courage.”

        UKIP Manifesto....A stronger and independent Britain for all says:

        Van Rompuy knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fall, then the whole world,including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.
        Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the United Kingdom lasts for a thousand years, men will still say, “This was their finest hour!”

    Martin Day says:

    When politicians can’t think of anything sensible to say, they come up with silly ideas. That is how David Cameron has produced his plan to give tax breaks to married couples who vote for David Cameron’s Conservatives

    Not for married couples who don’t vote for David Cameron’s Conservatives, mind you. And not much of a giveaway, either. But that isn’t what makes the proposal not just daft but offensive.

    For a start, it is plainly ridiculous to suggest that a couple will get married or stay together because the government is offering them £3 a week for the privilege.

    It is also distasteful to say to a woman newly widowed that she is now going to have to pay more tax. Or to inform a mother who has been abandoned by her husband that she will lose tax relief yet her ex will receive it if he marries the woman he has run off with.

    Yes, marriage is important, as are all stable relationships.

    It isn’t the state’s job to interfere in people’s private lives but we all pay the cost of broken families and the damage they can do to society.

    The question, as with so many of the critical questions that face Britain, is what can be done. And suggesting it can be fixed by bribing selected couples with a few quid is plain dishonest politics.

    Mr Cameron is not only trying to appease a nagging right-wing lobby but is floundering around for an idea – not a big idea, that would be too much to ask, but any idea. For after nearly five years as Tory leader, voters still don’t know what he stands for.

    Let Martin Day enlighten them. He stands for gimmicks, oily public relations and the prospect of brutal cuts in public spending and tens of thousands of redundancies. No wonder he is struggling in the polls.

    Let me just say in conclusion,Vote Labour

            And expecially let’s not forget that the IED detectors and some of the better armoured vehicles are British inventions being manufactured here but are shunned by aintbustingaut and the MoD whilst being bought in large quantities by the US Army who laud them as significantly saving lives of US troops in Afghanistan!!!!

    A midget was in the newsagent staring at the magazine section.. The newsagent thought the top shelf porn mags were well out of the midget’s reach so offered assistance.

    `Do you want me to help you ?’ said the newsagent.

    The midget took his midget cock out and replied. `Thank you. With a good hand job, I reckon I could squirt over the photo of the girl on the word puzzle mag.

    He is one of the most talented and notable figures of advertising genius. Please recognise class when you see it, you ignoramuses.

    I think we need to know precisely which confidential NHS database the Labour Party has clearly accessed in order to target cancer patients with their sick ‘ you will die more quickly under the tories’ postcard.

    Labour today tried to say that the only database they used for that postcard was the electoral roll. What an outright barefaced Lie!!

    This is as good an advert as we can have for a campaign against labour’s nhs universal database they are currently trying to launch. Clearly labour’s reasons for promoting it are entirely political!!!

        But we need an answer from Labour on this current postcard scandal. Where did Labour get their names and addresses in order to target cancer victims in this disgraceful manner ??!!

        We know Labour’s Source is the confidential NHS database – but they must be made to admit it !!! And UNITE must acknowledge that they are implicit in this disgraceful national breach of medical confidentiality!!!

          Dack Blog says:

          They targeted 250,000 patients based on postcodes (having read behind the headlines) – some of which, as you’d expect, have (or had) cancer.

          I got a political leaflet about reinstating dog-free areas in my local park. Should I take it personally if my dog had just died?

          It was a stupid leaflet from a stupid party that hadn’t thought though the potential consequences. Cancer is an emotive issue (as I know from experience) but there are more important fuckups to get all ‘Lady Di’s funeral’ about.

          • nell says:

            N0 sorry Dack, as much as I respect your views, This time you are wrong.

            Labour have this time used a confidentisl NHS Database that has allowed them to access and target patients suffering cancer.

            We need to know who has allowed them to do that and UNITE and the slug charliewhelan have to come clean because he and they are clearly in the Frame!!!

          • Dack Blog says:

            Maybe there is more to it and, if so, I’m sure that all will be revealed in time. But a lot of data based on postcodes is shared and easily accessible. They haven’t – from what I’ve read already – targeted ONLY cancer patients. Sounds like a scattergun mailing to me and some pellets hit the (ill-considered)mark.

            We’ll see Nell.

            I don’t always agree with your views but I respect your passion – I just think it blinds you at times. It’s more ‘they’re all a bit shit’ than ‘heroes and villains’. (I still hope you’re a troll, though) :)

    For once Guido Fawkes is right. Denis MacShane is an odious man. A massive popular campaign is needed. Guardian readers, Fawkes, and myself, three very different types, have nothing good to say about MacShane and cannot all be wrong. If only a popular independent candidate could win the seat – it could be done, maybe, with support from all the disillusioned individuals of the blogosphere. Even Esther Rantzen would be preferable.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
