            Can someone ask one of these knackers who is importing the 250kg of heroin a day into the UK from the War fields of Helmand province. And the cost of prohibition that has justified the building of a police state in this once pleasant land.

            Yep you guessed it.

          • Sack Brillo and Paxo for unprofessional uncalled for abuse says:

            `Nor your wife` says Brillo!

            What kind of turd comes out with a remark like that?

            We had Paxo trying to mock someones name the other day and now this!

            Why not just hire a bunch of twelth year old chavs to mock everyone with juvenile and purile remarks?

            Does anyone believe that the pervert’s friends in the liberal party will lift a finger to reverse this?

            The only way we can is to get the hell out of the EU and scrap the politically correct criminal’s rights laws. We need a common sense bill of rights that applies only to law abiding individuals. Convicted criminals get fook all!

          • fascist goverment says:

            Not content to hand over our democracy to the EUSSR the last bits that remain they want to keep for themselfs only.

            Andrew Neil was excellent on the Daily Politics today. I’m not usually a fan, but his incisive questioning of Charlie Whelan was hilarious.
            Whelan is as thick as pig shit-to think that he holds a position at the heart of the establishment is truly terrifying.

          • stil not as bad as Dave Blair the Millionaire benefits and mortgage cheat says:

            David Cameron took out maximum taxpayer-funded mortgage – then paid off own £75k loan four months later

            David Cameron was dragged personally into the expenses row after it was revealed that he paid off a loan on his London home shortly after taking out a £350,000 taxpayer-funded mortgage on his constituency house.
            The disclosure followed a powerful call by the Tory leader yesterday for the ‘full force of the law’ to be deployed against MPs who have abused allowances.
            Following a Mail on Sunday investigation Mr Cameron could now face searching questions about his own expense claims.


            Dave claimed for expenses on a second home – the mortgage interest, when he only had one mortgage. He was also one of the largest claimers of this expense in the commons for many years.

          • Susie says:

            Always the cover up that gets them… Clegg claims the extra money was in his account was used to pay for ‘staffing costs’ but he’d already claimed the staffing costs from the Fees Office.

            And this is interesting… Tricky Nicky.

            Mr Young said the payments had to be made into Mr Clegg’s personal bank account because there was no fund for the “Parliamentary Office of the Liberal Democrats”.

            However, Mr Clegg’s own expenses show that in February 2006 he asked the fees office to begin making a monthly payment to the “Parliamentary Office of the Liberal Democrats” for £833 “until further notice”. The paperwork indicates this was to cover salary costs.

          • this is interesting too says:

            “George Osborne, the shadow chancellor, and other senior Tories have in the past been criticised for failing to make public where their office funding has come from.”

            And yet the Telegraph didn’t feel the need to do the same bank acount search for Cameron, Osborne and the senirt Tories despite this ?

            Or should that be,…. yet ?

        Hugh Janus says:

        Just shown on BBC 10 O’Clock News.

        My estimation of Brillo rises almost daily, I like the cut of his jib. Why isn’t he chairing one of the three debates?

    • 10
      keep the standards up you twat says:

      er, we’re all laying a cable together never felt so good

    • 13
      And you can watch Brillo doing the same thing here says:


      As you will all remember after Brillo did the exact same thing back then Cable was destroyed and the public all turned against him.

      • 301
        Atlas shrugged says:

        Interesting to hear Cable say that he said that many years before the crunch that the British tax payer has long since been underwriting the entire British Banking System.

        Because I knew this over 25 years ago, and told every body who would care to listen. They usually called me a nut-case or desperately tried to change the subject.

        They would say things like. “Well if that was true surly the BBC would have told us. Or at least socialists, or people like Galloway.”

        I would reply with something along the lines of.

        “No they would not because the BBC is utterly controlled by the British establishment which is in effect the British Banking System. As for socialists, they wont say anything because it is the banking system that invented socialism in the first place. It is using the power of the banking system that socialism expects to one day rule the planet. Marx did after all say exactly this a very long time ago.”

        At this point they usually would start suggesting that I seek urgent professional help, as I was clearly verging on a state of certifiable paranoia.

        However Cable says he said this many years ago any no one suggested to him he should be locked up in an mental institution. But then Cable was educated at the establishments very own and highly Marxist LSE , a self-confessed Marxist himself, and a puppet of the Oil and Banking industry. However I am just a twat, so what do I know?

        What is very much worse, NOBODY in the media or anywhere else mentioned this long standing fact of British, European, and American life until it was far too late to do anything about it to the British people.

        Of course the left would never have said anything, because it is the British Banking system that has always given socialists every political thought that has ever entered their heads, as well as diverted hundreds of millions in finances to The Labour movement since it first began. Either through trades union dues or from the establishments KGB connections within the old Soviet Union.

        Communism is establishment run capitalism, better known as Fascism. The only reason why you did not know this, is because they did not want you to know, for fairly obvious reasons. As well as having the complete and utter power to make sure you don’t know whatever else they don’t want you to know.

      Unfortunately the BBC mainstream is NOT reporting the BBC political anorak stream. According to BBC R4 the whole of that debate was taken up discussing Ken Clarke’s alarmist warning that a hung parliament would result in the IMF being called in.

      • 68
        Mr Ned says:

        The BBC are utterly dependent upon the Liberal Democrats riding to the aid of the Labour Party. Of course they are not going to report anything that might risk a labour Government, even a minority one.

      Vince didn’t do well but this was no knockout blow by anyone on anything.

      Stop pretending the Tories are doing well just because you want them to be, they have been and still are being crap.

      Also all these useless smears CCHQ is trying in the papers are backfiring spectacularily its so patenly obvious that they have nothing to smear Cleeg with.

      I cant beleive this Cameron has been so useless so far, I will be gobsmacked if the tories win at this rate.

      Camerons attemps is going to go down as the most inept campaign ever mounted by the Tories.

            If alcohol and prostitution are “against Islam” then why are they so popular with muslim men? Having lived and worked in several muslim countries I can attest to that.

          • Atlas shrugged says:

            Well the simple answer would be that they are men,and a good piss up followed by masses of compliant pussy will always knock any form of religion into a cocked hat.

            Which just goes to show that there is far far more that unites all of humanity then there is that should ever divide us.

            Well maybe that only applies to men, now days, but at least it is a start and highly positive.

            May I also add that in my experience of all men of all religions devout Jew and Muslim very much included. They are at least as horny as anyone else with a functional penis. As well as usually getting it one way or another far more then the average westerner.

      Today’s Ipsos Mori poll shows the Lib Dems up 11 points compared to a similar survey last month, at the expense of Tories (down three) and Labour (down two).

      If repeated in the General Election on an even swing across the country, the figures would produce a hung Parliament, in which Labour would have the most MPs despite having received fewer votes than the other two parties.

      Labour would have around 271 MPs, against 234 Conservatives and 116 Liberal Democrats.

            I am inclined to agree with you.

            On election night it would seem more then likely that the Lib/Dems will actually receive only a % or many be 3 more then they were polling 6 months ago.

            As you rightly intimate, most of these people don’t even know where the polling station is, and have little intention on finding out where it is either. What is more their ant enough Lib/Dems activists on the streets to ferry them there, and they don’t know where any of them live even if they could.

            We should remember that these polls only show percentages the more people who say they will vote Lib/Dem the less the other parties show. This percentage figure has very little or indeed nothing to do with intention to actually vote.

            If you have not voted before, you very likely will not next time, even if God almighty was on the ballot paper armed with a few miracles. Which of course still would not be enough to save Gordon Brown’s created shit-hole, ( namely The UK in case you were getting any confused ideas ) from the coming abyss.

        Exactly but what you offer is not the same as what you DO. It part of their wish list but we all know its never going to happen. When Cable was put on the spot this afternoon he was totally discredited and just waffled. You might not like the Tories or Labour but at least they are credible and have some conviction in what they are trying to persuade us to believe. 13 years of Labour misrule you would think that would be enough to convince people where we stand clearly it is not and we are heading for a very gloomy economic future.

          Mr Ned says:

          What they give out in tax-cuts they are going to repeal in tax credits! Net effect, IF you claim tax credits, you will NOT be better off!

          A caller on Radio four at lunch time caught Clegg out with that. He could not deny it and said he would have to look into it!

          If you look at the total household income, including the massive increase in vehicle excise duties that the lib-dems plan, and the increases in council tax ( the local income tax) the average household budget would be hit very very hard by the liberal democrats indeed! the 700 pound increase in income will be more than offset in other tax rises

    those terrible Lib Dem Tax cuts Exposed! says:

    The same YouGov poll asked a number of policy questions including this one on the LibDem’s populist winning-on-the-doorstep tax policy:

    Here are some proposals that have been made in the current election. In each case, do you support or oppose it?

    Tax: Scrap income tax on earnings of less than £10,000 a year. The £17billion cost of this will be paid for by a tax on bigger houses, a tax on airline flights, restricting tax relief on pensions savings for higher-rate taxpayers, and attempting to clamp down on tax avoidance.

    Support: 66%
    Oppose: 20%
    Don’t know: 14%

      Q. Would you like to pay no tax at all and have free Smarties for life?

      Yes — 66%
      No — 20%
      Don’t know — 14%

      These polls are a waste of space. Most of the people taking part are at least one of the following:

      Pig ignorant
      Out of their skulls on Baby Bio

      They lie because they don’t want to admit they’re voting for the nasty party or Sniffin and the Nanziboys, they lie because when asked “are you in favour of tax rises to help children with cancer?” they secretly think “fuck that” but don’t want the pollster to know it; and they lie just for the hell of it, for buggering up the polls, in the same way that when I was a student and had nothing better to do (like work) I filled in marketing questionnaires pretending my income was less than £100 a week and I drove a Ferrari, kept hyenas, had 14 children even though my age was “between 15 and 25″, etc., etc.

      The reliance of the media on daily polls and polls of polls is just hilarious. No one knows WTF is going on out there. Even on polling day we won’t know what the true intentions were. The signature machines whirring away in Birmingham, Leicester, Bradford and like provinces of Englestan will see to that.

          Cameron – the PR years

          From Eton to Oxford to Tory leader – that’s all many of us know about David Cameron. But before he was an MP, he worked as head of communications at Carlton TV. Former colleagues remember him well …

          As director of corporate affairs, Cameron regularly lobbied ministers and was “in the room” according to former colleagues, when big decisions were made. They included the fateful decision to take on BSkyB, the pay-TV giant controlled by Rupert Murdoch, by launching a terrestrial alternative to Sky’s satellite service called ONdigital (later renamed ITV Digital) in partnership with Granada.

          • Merit Rarely Matters says:

            onDigital failed because ITV’s lawyers fucked up big-time in drafting the contract for the football rights which were supposed to drive subscriptions. Marketing was not the problem.

        Today’s unemployment figures show that Labour’s policies just aren’t working.
        Unemployment is at a 16 year high, whilst the number of jobs continues to fall.
        There couldn’t be a worse time to impose a new jobs tax, which will threaten the recovery and cost tens of thousands of jobs.
        New figures released today show:
        Unemployment at a 16 year high. Unemployment now stands at 2.5 million, an increase of 43,000 on the last quarter and the highest level since 1994. The unemployment rate now stands at 8 per cent.
        Employment falls by 89,000. Employment fell by 89,000 over the last quarter to reach 28.82 million.
        Record economic inactivity. 8.16 million working age people are classed as economically inactive – the highest number since records began in 1971, and a rise of 110,000.
        2.3 million economically inactive want a job. 2.34 million economically inactive people want a job but do not appear in the headline unemployment figures.
        Youth unemployment rising again. 929,000 young people aged 16-24 are unemployed. One in five young people is unable to find a job.
        Nearly three quarters of a million long-term unemployed. 726,000 people have been unemployed for 12 months or more, an increase of 89,000 over the last quarter.
        1 million part-time workers want a full-time job. 1.05 million part-time workers want a full-time job but cannot get one – a record high.
        Half a million fewer jobs in the economy. There were 30.75 million workforce jobs in December 2009, down 119,000 over the quarter and down 533,000 on a year earlier.
        Over 5 million on out-of-work benefits. In August 2009 the number of people claiming key out of work benefits was 5.08 million, up 675,400 from August 2008.

The election meeting featured Harriet Harman, Stella Creasy, the local candidate, who’d incidentally been selected by an all-women short-list, other Labour candidates and 100 selected local women.

    Here is a question for the leaders debate.

    Do you understand the difference between democracy and dictatorship?

    Democracy is when ten million people want a referendum on Europe and the single leader who has the power to grant that wish grants it.

    Dictatorship is when ten million people want a referendum on Europe and the single leader who has the power to grant that wish refuses to do so.

    Cameron seems to have the impression that all he needs to do is keep on arguing and the ten million paople will agree with him. He is wrong.

    If Cameron wants to get elected he needs to understand the democratic principle and promise a referendum. He could in the process remind Europe that in this country we take our democracy as seriously as Germany does.

    It is the one man who needs to change his mind; not the ten million.

      David Cameron took out maximum taxpayer-funded mortgage – then paid off own £75k loan four months later

      David Cameron was dragged personally into the expenses row after it was revealed that he paid off a loan on his London home shortly after taking out a £350,000 taxpayer-funded mortgage on his constituency house.
      The disclosure followed a powerful call by the Tory leader yesterday for the ‘full force of the law’ to be deployed against MPs who have abused allowances.
      Following a Mail on Sunday investigation Mr Cameron could now face searching questions about his own expense claims.


      Dave claimed for expenses on a second home – the mortgage interest, when he only had one mortgage. He was also one of the largest claimers of this expense in the commons for many years.

      The money was only ‘resting’ in his mortgage.

      Hell. Vince nearly lost it! He was so used to being given an easy “Your grace” ride that the tone of the questions really flawed him. His eyes were darting about in panic and his mouth looked like it was going dry.

      He is actually typical of an economics lecturer. They just waffle on with “on the one hand, yet on the other hand” and pass it off as intellectual rigour. People like Vince are utterly unsuited for government as they are incapable of making decisions.

    Floating voter interested in the truth says:

    Kenneth Clarke and George Osborne have issued a dramatic warning that Britain could well have to be bailed out by the International Monetary Fund if the General Election results in a hung parliament. The Tories immediately came under attack from Labour and the LibDems, branding them as scaremongers.
    Ken Clarke is absolutely right! Britain is already on ’negative watch’ with the three main credit agencies, one notch away from loosing our AAA credit rating. An adverse reaction in the international markets could very well precipitate the kind of scenario Ken describes if the electorate fail to deliver a strong Government with a working majority. This is not a Party Political issue but a matter of fact, and I predict the City of London will come out in the next few days and support the Tories position over this, just as the captains of industry did over the National Insurance ‘Jobs tax’ issue.

    My current wife still thinks the sun shines out of my arse, even though she knows only to well that it certainly does not. If Brillo said that to me, she would have jumped through the TV and tried to punch Billo’s light out.

    Cable seemed to actually agree with Brillo, then tried, but failed to come up with a indignant repost.

    Cable is clearly not a person who can think on his feet, and rather obviously has a few skeletons in the closet he would rather not discus. People like Brillo know certain things, and Cable knows it IMO.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
