Balls : Damian McBride is My Friend, Still Speak to Him

With rumours circulating that Damian McBride will be spinning for Ed Ball’s forthcoming leadership campaign,  (if , and it is an if, he holds his Morley and Outwood seat).  Brillo got straight to the point at this morning’s Labour Party press conference:

C’mon down Damian, Guido misses you…

          You’re just jealous because you don’t have a successful blog like TaT.
          But getting back on topic: you’ve got to larf haven’t you?
          If the Tories chances of winning was fuelled by how much they whinged they would win a majority of over a hundred seats.
          And for Guido the master traducer to start whingeing about McBride is beyond hypocrisy. You simply couldn not make it up. You must have been blushing when you posted this thread Guido.
          You have taken irony to new and ridiculous levels and for that I salute you.


          • stilyagi_air_corp says:

            Strange, I thought you would have thanked me for the compliment. Maybe TaT doesn’t have a real blog, after all! No matter how much it gets talked about on Guido’s site, it’s just vapourware, and therefore both use and value-less.

            This site ain’t your blog, TaT, it’s just an extension to your kharzi wall. Fool!


          • Anon says:

            I was talking to AC1 who is jealous that TaT is successful and AC1 is a failure who lives off the inheritance he gained from pushing his poor old mum down the stairs and breaking her neck.

          Aren’t you basing that on the assumption that whoever wins on May 6th is actually going to cut the borrowing?

          I thought all three main parties were in broad agreement: increasing the debt by ~£160bn a year is about right.

            Could save billions by retreating – no more soldiers in far flung places, no more MEP, get rid of the Government, and local councillors pay us for the privillage of running the council. If they do well, they get some Tesco/M&S Vouchers at the end of the year.

      I’ve identified around 600 Billion in savings.

      Basically Government is a “hammer”, so stop it doing anything that doesn’t involve “nails”.

      State= Force, so it’s no wonder that Healthcare, Education, Retirement and Benefits are messing up the country. It’s the wrong tool.

      But Starkey points out it took only three years to get to that happy position. We’re already two years into the 200bn a year cover-up. If Brown had taken action the day Northern Rock went tits up this would all be over by now. Instead of which we still have it all ahead of us and fuckwits like Bob Crow just fucking itching for a scrap.

          Listen guys, the admission from the gargolye is simply motivated. Just ahead of the Tv debates he’s making a defence on that score in advance, just in case his line about the tories actually calling for less regulation doesn’t work first time round. It’s getting his retaliation in first. Obviously things went tits up, so yeah ” I learned some lessons” is always a get-out for these morons.

    A well hung Parliament please!!! ex BBC cunt, Ben 'buggering' Bradshaw says:

    What a fucking wretched shower of human filth NaziLabour are.

    However, given the moral depravity and utter stupidity which exists amongst NaziLabour’s client state, why shouldn’t degenerates likes McBride be at the heart of the British Government?

    Little Lord Sodomite sits lecturing the grateful people about business when we know how he will do anything to break laws to aid crooked businessmen who donate to Labour, yet no-one in the MSM asks why are you, a mortgage fraudster permitted to take the stand at every Labour event?

    Even more stomach churning are the gutteral utterances of our loony spendaholic PM whom the MSM permit to criticise the Tory spending plans as ‘uncosted’.
    Which mainstream journo holds the loony to account for doubling the national debt during a global economic boom, and then to double it again?

    It’s no wonder the polls are tied, this country has become a cesspit where Labour can get away with anything.
    People no longer want to have their own choices, in the Stalinist UK, huge swathes now want someone else to make their decisions for them.

    The scroungers, the moronic, the feckless, the feral, the fraudsters, they will forgive NaziLabour anything so long as their benefits keep rolling in.

    That’s why its gonna be so much fun when the money runs out, lots of hard choices then

      Time To Go Gordon says:

      British people today seem like those Russians in the 90s who longed for a return to the Soviet Union because they couldn’t cope with all the choices they had to make. About 65% of the British public seem to want to be told what to do. I can’t think of any other Western country that would put up with the erosions of freedoms we have put up with.

      A small example is the way Londoners put up with the constant closing of tube lines for maintenance. When it was suggested to a Parisian that they could do the same on the Paris metro he said it was impossible as the French public would never allow it. In Paris the lines stay open all day and maintenance work is carried out during the night.

          • Debunker says:

            It’s true that you managed to eliminate ‘MP poverty’.


          • Animal says:

            Child poverty in this country certainly has not been “eliminated” – the figures quoted by the Campaign to End Child Poverty stand at around 4 million children – and with no measures on this in the last budget along with the deepest recession since Great War, it will continue. So yes, you did write out a whopping lie there.

            Of course, Liebore could just fix the stats to say child poverty doesn’t exist in the UK – rather like how Balls just plays with the education stats to cover up his own failings.

            Now, about this idea that a future Liebore Government will ‘eliminate murder’. Exactly how will they do that – rename it as ‘involuntary euthanasia’ perhaps?


          • TheDevineOne says:

        What a load of bollocks, child poverty, since when have children been sent out to work down mine or up chimney stack in th elast 50 years.
        You arse hole, child poverty has been dreamt up by the PR boys as an excuse for letting people breed without having the financial wherewithal to look after their issue. Mainly ethnic types or have provided no economic gain to the country OR feckless tarts who have multiple brats from different fathers. Where the CSA doesn’t even bother to hound the absent fathers, as it was probably the reult of a one night knee trembler in a back alley somewhere.
        Child Poverty my arse, yet another con on the public to fleece people of hard earned cash.

    If Brown admits to taking his eye off the ball about the banks, then the questions is what other, less obvious, areas has he missed. It seems the Labour goals overrode reality. They ignored the world while they got on with their planned social changes. That is not government.

    So what else did he miss:
    1. The spy state. All countries are free to create databases of all our assets.
    2. The “affordable housing” scam. Good principle but no protection. Tied cottages. Next big fraud.
    3. The demise of maintenance. Why clean it, we could just rebuild it!
    4. PFI. Why pay now …

          And that 17billion pounds tax rebate will go mainly to low earners who immediately spend 95 per cent of the wages they receive which means most of the tax cut will be injected straight into the economy.
          With thicko Tories like you in charge offering tax breaks only to the rich like George W Bush, the public finances which are terrible enough under Brown would get even worse.
          The Tories would finish this country off. Look at what Bush’s tax breaks for the rich did to the American economy, it almost destroyed it.
          Now they have President Obama in charge things are starting to get better.

    “Show me your friends and I’ll show you who you are”.

    Right from the begining of Newlabour I was baffled as to how anybody could have voted for that slippery fucker mangleschlom; what were they thinking (if at all)

    Fuck that must be rivetting dinner party – Blinky No Mates, McBride,Mrs Balls and McRuin.
    What would they talk about ?

    ‘Gordon here’s the list of the seven people we have not briefed against in the last 13 years. Actually it’s worse than that because us 4 are on the list and the rest are dead’

    ‘Ed, I am a strong leader – start smearing everyone on the list -get on to it before the cheese and biscuits( which I am not sure if I like or not.Give me a few days to decide)

    Did you manage to find any more party faithful I can stand up speak passionately to?
