Goodbye Darling

Word reaches Guido that the Darlings have emptied their Number 11 flat. All their bookshelves have been boxed up and are ready to go. They are clearly not planning on coming back to Downing Street again.

You can bet on who will replace him as Chancellor here.

    If the BBC were impartial, this election would be a tory landslide.

        The Tories in their current incarnation are rather limp. We know what the problems are with the economy, immigration and the EU. Don’t mess about, just sort them out. Then you can do all the touchy-feely stuff.

    What would be more impressive would be word reaching Guido that Darling was instructing Treasury officials to prepare proposals for severe spending cuts with a view to balancing the nations books in 12 months, and making up the nation’s books to show the incoming government the true state of the nation’s finances.

    Somehow, I suspect that the opposite is happening.

    Hopefully Darling will be replaced by Osborne, but the Tories will need to get their campaign into gear and start levelling with the public over how the public sector needs to be reduced in size, or it may well be Balls who walks, grinning, into No 11, to complete Labour’s task of reducing Britain to a wasteland, where everyone “works” for the government!

Hopefully, the electorate will realise the folly of supporting Clegg and his daft little bunch and voite for the only party which can see Gordon Brown out of Downing Street – the Conservatives – they’re not perfect, but they sure as Hell are preferable to five more years in the Brown stuff!

        Come off it – Darling is a posh Trot and is absolutely delighted to have played a part, albeit a minor one, in the trashing of the UK’s economy. He wrecked Edinburgh’s finances when he ‘worked’ there and now he’s had a part in ruining the UK. High-fives among the posh Trots!

    In other news, it has been reported that the libdems will settle for alternative vote for commons elections – bye bye conservatives, bye bye Great Britain; welcome little Britain.

    PS Cameron should nail libdems on their true intentions for electoral reform. If Clegg won’t rule out AV for the commons, Cameron can justifiably claim that a vote for libdems is a vote for many more years of Brown. With alternative vote, policy making will be hijacked by public sector unions and benefits recipients.

    For starters the next Chancellor will be Balls, even if he loses his seat the gay fucking mong will simply make him a fucking Peer. Notice how we are run by bummer Mandelson, Lord fucking Adonis (another fag) and Lord West not to mention Lord fucking Kinnock and Lord fucking Sugar.

    Having Lord Balls-up as Chancellor will be just another unelected fucking mong. The Limp Dems won’t bring down the mong as they can’t afford to fight another election this year.

    The gay mong will hang on in power in the hope of getting a few more million fucking halfwits and public sector jobs (they will keep printing money Zimbabwe style) to give them an overall mandate.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.
