Goodbye Darling

    He’s been the Invisible Man of this campaign. Him and Jack Fucking Straw.

    Doddy says:

    tatty Bye

    genghiz the kahn says:

    Has he redesignated his principal residence again?

    Perhaps he should be asked?

  4. 4
    obangobang says:

    Is he first behind bars? Let’s hope he’s not the last.

  5. 5
    no longer anonymous says:

    What did Mr Straw do to you?!

  6. 6
    The Ape Man Commeth says:

    Over the years my feelings have mellowed ever so slightly with eyebrows, while my dislike of his replacement have increased dramaticaly.

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

  7. 7
    Just shoot the lot of em says:

    vote clegg get brown , i dont like the tories but i fuckin hate brown , so the tories will have my vote this time ( i do have grave concerns )

  8. 8
    Engineer says:

    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.

  9. 9
    Brown's a Tosser says:

    Move over Darling.

  10. 10
    jgm2 says:

    Never forgave the cu*nt for imposing photo driver’s licences. I said at the time it was just a softener-upper for ID cards.

  11. 11
    Nick Clegg says:

    I feel like Tigger on crack!

  12. 12
    DNTT says:

    Bye-bye Badger Badger!

    He always had his arm twisted up behind his back by Brown and Balls.

    Don’t forget to repay for your home flipping on the way out Darling.

    jgm2 says:

    Never forgave the cu*nt for imposing photo dr*ver’s licences. I said at the time it was just a softener-upper for ID cards.

    Doctor Mick says:

    There’s no fun being Chancellor anymore now that there’s no gold left to play with.

  15. 15
    Engineer says:

    For starters, made a lot of mealy-mouthed and probably untrue statements about Labour’s immigration policy.

    The Darling Dud of May 6th

    Grumbler says:

    Security -Please check the boxes _ I dont trust any MP’s…..whoops was that a gold bar that fell out of the box!……….nope! its a broken nokia!

    Better to have vote on which quango or bank directorship he has been offered..my guess is Golden-Hacks.

  18. 18
    RantinRab says:

    Bye Bye Darling! Don’t let the door hit your arse on the way out, you Badger faced twat.

    Turned Out Nice Again says:

    All done with printing money to buy our own debt in order to maintain the current number of deck chairs on the Titanic

  20. 20
    Sam says:

    So he’s going back to being a children’s party clown – making penises out of balloons and farting in their faces.

    Fucking c’unt.

  21. 21
    Jac says:

    A collective sigh of relief – now all we need is Nick ‘Saint’ Clegg to follow in the ex-chancellors footsteps and hope that people will soon wake up to this Euro loving lot of ‘PC’ forgive the terrorists nut cases.

  22. 22
    God says:

    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!

  23. 23
    Irene says:

    IF by some whatever, it is a hung parliament with Labour and Libdems surely St Vince would be made chancellor, wouldn’t that be part of the deal?

  24. 24
    Engineer says:

    He has a portfolio of principal residences, one for the Commons Fees Office, one for HMRC, one for his constituency, one for his ministerial needs, and several left over for living in.

  25. 25
    Arch Stanton says:

    Wonder which House he will now designate as his second home ?
    Perhaps Guido can find out as he sure as hell will do so.

    Useless Chancellor just a mealy mouthed mouthpiece for the Gorgon, I wonder if he has any pride left ?

    The next few Days will tell

  26. 26
  27. 27
    Postal Vote says:

    It’s probably Whelan’s call, but Darling is reportedly very relieved he won’t be the one welcoming the IMF.

  28. 28
    Labour is dying says:

    Like a badger leaving the sinking ship.

  29. 29

    Don’t mention the Titanic. Captain Brown is planning to sail over to Barcelona to rescue stranded school parties.
    Despite being in the Bay of Biscay he will still hit an iceberg.

  30. 30
  31. 31
    Postal Vote says:

    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.

  32. 32
    Dick the Prick says:

    Oh, the humanity!

  33. 33
    lolol says:

    Hell does that mean Cable is the next sucker/chancellor does that mean that tax will go up a penny or two pence each week and will we have Vat on us paying tax.

  34. 34
    Jung says:

    Good riddance. Do not slam the door on your way out!

  35. 35
    Engineer says:

    Darling, in fairness to him, inherited an almighty mess, courtesy of the real criminals, Broon and the Testicular one. However, Darling’s efforts at containing the economic conflagration had about as much effect as a little boy pissing in a blast furnace. He can’t really be regarded as a hero.

    Sneaking out the back way, like a thief in the night. The rotter.

    THAT is a really good point.

    Vote Lim Bem and get Brown FOR EVER.

  38. 38
    Cocker Spaniel says:

    Lim Bem should read Lib Dem

  39. 39

    Let’s all hope his neighbour will be moving out with him on the 7th

    You’re fucking barmy.

  41. 41
    Brown's a Tosser says:

    Balls into No.11 won’t happen. In a coalition that is one office that will go to Cable given all the media hype and Clegg support for him. The interesting one is what can Brown offer Clegg to keep him happy. Deputy PM perhaps? And what do the electorate get FIVE MORE YEARS OF BROWN. Whooppeeee.

  42. 42
    Engineer says:

    I concur x 2.

    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.

  43. 43
    Axe The Telly Tax says:

    LOL. Jacqui Smith is at 50/50 to be next chancellor.

  44. 44
    Adler says:

    Too be fair he was the least hated of the Labour cult. Then he brought out that pile of nonsense of a budget Fucking liar.

  45. 45
    Lizzie says:

    The “road to recovery” is under construction, Labour have made so many “financial black pot holes” in it the repair crew have given up and gone home.
    Has Brown started packing yet?

  46. 46
    Canary Wharf Rat says:

    Meanwhile Brown is nailing everything down and getting ready for the siege!

  47. 47
    Just shoot the lot of em says:

    only problem is , i know i am going to be let down by the tories , but the thought of brown for 5 more years , its a thought i cannot cope with

  48. 48
    Thats News says:

    Darling is leaving No 10? Is this his way of showing two fingers to Brown?

  49. 49
    Disaffected says:

    Straw, Blunkett and Blair, according to Blair’s former speech writer Andy Neather, wanted mass immigration to change the face of Britain. Who gave them that mandate? Secondly, his input for the Iraq war leaves a lot to be desired, if one accepts he was a consciencious objector in his younger days like his dad. Finally, using his power to veto the promotion of a judge for criticisng Liebour policy says a lot about his and his party’s surpressive tactics to silence people who speak out against the government. So I agree fcuk Straw.

    Not to mention a revenue stream, now every driver has to update their photo every 10 yrs (or more frequently).

    McDoom will fight them on the steps of number 10,from the jacuzzi at Chequers and behind his wee potting shed in Fife.

    ‘This does not involve running away to Scotland, simply some minor repositioning to eliminate any hint of a southerly bias’ his spokesperson said.

  55. 55
    Nick2 says:

    His main saving grace IMO was that he wasn’t as maddeningly arrogant on camera as Brown used to be when Chancellor.

  56. 56
    I hate New Labour says:

    I’m sure he’ll find *another* second home to flip now.

    Greedy, useless f*cker.

    Road_Hog says:

    Those odds are farked. Jacqui Smith 2nd favourite at 2-1? I know the bookies have to make a margin, but that is some over round at 172.

  59. 59
    Nick2 says:

    Saw her on DP. Smith criticised Sarah Teather for saying that the Child Trust Fund was inefficient, and then went on to commend the CTF for the same reasons that Teather had (mildly) criticised it.

    Jacqui won’t be missed.

    Too right.

    After 1992 we had another five years of Major and we wall all nearly suicidal by the time of the ’97 election.

    I can’t live through that again.

    QWERTY says:

    Anyone who thinks the one eyed homosexual fucking jock mong will take any notice of the Limp Dems is living in a fantasy world.

    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.

    Notice how the gay mong’s polling numbers keep falling but Liebour still keep ending up as the biggest party? How the fuck did the Tories and Limp Dems allow that one to pass?

    I have voted Lib Dem for the past 6 elections but the prospect of them enabling Brown to continue is making me think of voting Tory. My Lib Dem MP will get in anyway so my vote may as well be used as a marker in the popular vote

    It doesn’t matter who I vote for, or if I vote at all. Nothing would ever cause my constituency to elect anything but a Tory MP. Nevertheless I shall be voting Tory, just to increase the anti-Brown vote by an infinitesimal amount.

    I remember Beardless Alistair Darling. Had to shave it off as beards make women voters think those men are untrustworthy.

    Imagine that?


    Oh and I also remember him as a tin-pot anti-car councillor so in truth he has hardly moved on – but then he was bearded (of course) . . .

    Never did like Darling from the moment he said that disabled people should work for a £1 a week because at least then they are working. My question to you Darling is would you. I will answer that for you – no you wouldn’t. You are not any one’s darling.

    Allan@Aberdeen says:

    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! Yippee, because we don’t get affected by the chaos that we inflict on the proles.

  92. 92

    […] Finally, Guido Fawkes, ever one for a strategic quip, points out that Alistair Darling has packed up everything at Number 11 Downing Street, as if he knew he was moving on after May 6th. […]

    God says:

    Cable is so financially deranged that he would be positively dangerous as chancellor – worse even than Brown was, if that is possible!! The idea of a Lab/Lib coalition of some sort is the worst nightmare of anyone who really cares about the UK. 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!

  98. 98
    Newt says:

    Thank God, at last, someone who remembers Darling’s first fuck-up! Why don’t the press ever cover the near bankruptcy of Edinburgh City Council under Darling?

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
