    I disagree. The bar is not high. The bar is so low only a third generation Labour voting in-breed could trip over it.

    Don’t vote Labour because they’re a bunch of self-serving, incompetent, economy wrecking arseholes would be the meme I’d be working at.

          No need to worrry Dave and CCHQ have it all under control says:

          There are four new polls tonight – YouGov in the Sun, Opinium in the Express and ICM in the Guardian. ComRes is not officially out yet, but the Guardian are reporting it here. That gives us:

          YouGov/Sun CON 33%(-1), LAB 28%(nc), LDEM 29%(-1)
          Opinium/Express CON 34%(+2), LAB 25%(-1), LDEM 28%(-1)
          ICM/Guardian CON 33%(-2), LAB 28%(+2), LDEM 30%(-1)
          ComRes/ITV/Independent CON 32%(-2), LAB 28%(nc), LDEM 31%(+2)

          Opinium show a slight movement towards the Conservatives since their last poll, but without any political weighting I would expect them to be rather more erratic anyway. The other three polls all show the Conservatives falling. Again it is just one day’s polls, and the movements are within the margin of error, but it does create the impression that the slight Tory recovery towards the end of last week is fading.

          • Vote for what? says:

            Pat Condel, One of the most popular people on youtube who’s videos get millions of hits.

            He is a comedian he is most articulate and cutting.

          • Vote for what? says:

          • Taxfodder says:

            Negative campaigning does not suit the Tories one little bit, the old saying holds true about stones and glasshouses.

            Warning of doom and gloom and disaster for the UK if (when) voters opt for a hung parliament are easily countered..

            IE If the Tories are so worried about a hung Parliament damaging the UK then perhaps they should encourage their supporters to vote for the competition… no? (not that worried then).

            Its a facile “yah boo sucks ploy” on the Tories part

          Since 1997 Labour has transformed the UK’s constitutional arrangements in order to break up longstanding concentrations of power, improve transparency, make government more accountable to the people and strengthen the hand of citizens against the state. Through measures such as devolution, the introduction of Freedom of Information legislation, the Human Rights Act, and reform of both Houses of Parliament, Labour has brought about a “constitutional revolution”.

          • Surveillance State, ID cards, Imprisonment without trial, Rendition, War Crimes, Labour has brought about a “bloodthirsty revolution”.

          • Not the IRA kind says:

            and terrorism to London

          • D L George says:

            Human Rights Act is a good case in point.

            Essentially the HRA states you have ‘Human Rights’ so long as the law says you do not.

            Labour have passed over three thousand six hundres laws to say ‘YOU DO NOT’.

            On a slightly different tact, anyone know how many rules labour have broken within the European Court of Human Rights since 1997?

          • Stormforce says:

            Get you, you nazi new labour dog.
            Labour is the party from hell. Nothing
            but retrograde crap from day 1.

          • Since 1997 Neues Arbeit has passed hundreds of laws covering thousands of new offences, mainly infringing on our freedom of speech and thought.

            These laws are fundamentally opposed to Britishness – I take it as a matter of pride that I have the right to offend someone if their beliefs are distasteful to me, and oppose the idea that the state should dictate to me that giving offence to people for behaviour that they choose should be illegal.

            Most, if not all, of these new laws cover areas that existing laws handled perfectly well. The introduction of the new, politically correct laws, all aimed at forming the behaviour of the individual, has eliminated the role of common sense in the dispensing of justice and shown Neues Arbeit up for the fascist party that they truly are.

            Fuck them, fuck their laws, and may they all suffer severe and prolonged pain in the near future.

          • MI5 says:

            Reform of both Houses of Parliament ???

            Zanu Labour have created the most corrupt House of Commons for two centuries…

            And a voting system which gives ZanuLabour a 10% inbuilt electoral advantage…

            And the most corrupt House of Lords ever…filled with NuLabour/union thieving stooges…

            Quite a record in fact…

          • Mdme Defarge says:

            This country’s rights and freedoms are based on Magna Carta and the Common Law and whilst not perfect, the checks and balances of the centuries have produced a society admired throughout the globe.

            Since those utter self serving, lying, money grabbing parasites in NuLiebour got their hands on it they have reduced us to an international laughing stock and our rights and cherished freedoms have been eroded to dangerous levels.

            So please just take this message back to your Liebour paymesters:

            Eat Shit And Die! OK?

        From the ‘grassroots website, Labour List’

        Yes. Grassroots. Spontaneous grassroots support for the Labour idiocy. Because there are thousands of ‘left-leaning’ people out there just looking to proclaim their fucking idiocy.

        My brother lives in a marginal Birmingham seat and regaled me with the grassroots visit he got from an unpaid Labour appara-arsehole today. The incumbent Labour jackass MP, invisible for the previous five years while he voted 100% for whatever the Labour imbecility de jour was being detained somewhere further up the street….

        ‘Can we count on your support’

        ‘No’

        ‘Why not?’

        ‘How long have you got? It’s hard to know where to start….’

        Major hilarity as he recounted the ear-bleed he gave the fuckwitted Labour apologist arsehole.

        No cu*nt bothers me in my safe Tory seat in West Sussex. Although it looks like I’ve been shuffled across a constituency boundary to another safe Tory seat.

          He should have mentioned Gordon’s “fairer Britain” where, according to the Sunday Times Rich List, the top hundred most wealthy billionaires and millionaires saw their wealth increase by 30%!!!

          • pigs in space says:

            That’s due the the plummeting value of the pound, as it goes down the book value of the assets of the rich goes up, even if they don’t own any more than they did, their net worth measured in McDoom’s incredible shrinking currency goes up.

          Gold. Cheap at twice the price. I may have to lie to my wife. In a supposedly first world economy the thought of buying several hundred thousand pounds worth of physical gold should be so unthinkable as to be..well… unthinkable.

          And yet every economic idiocy I’ve predicted for the past decade has come to pass. They really have, quite literally, printed 200bn quid. They still pursue the mantra of high house prices = balanced, vibrant economy.

          There is no amount of cash too great for these jackasses to print. Hence the ‘resurgence’ in house prices as those with surplus cash turn it into something concrete. I think now would be a good time to turn our surplus cash into something concrete and portable.

          Gordon Brown is the greatest living idiot. He is to economics what William McGonigall is to poetry.

          • A Pensioner says:

            Those of us who remember the Wilson years (actually not me, but history handed down by my dad) remember the days when you couldn’t take more than 50 quid out of the country, and holding gold – even the odd sov, never mind bullion – was illegal. I would bet there are contingency plans for capital flight.

            The Death of the Old Mendicant

            There was a rich old gentleman
            Lived on a lonely moor in Switzerland,
            And he was very hard to the wandering poor,
            ‘Tis said he never lodged nor served them at his door.

            ‘Twas on a stormy night, and Boreas blew a bitter blast,
            And the snowflakes they fell thick and fast,
            When a poor old mendicant, tired and footsore,
            Who had travelled that day fifteen miles and more,
            Knocked loudly at the rich man’s door.

            The rich man was in his parlour counting his gold,
            And he ran to the door to see who was so bold,
            And there he saw the mendicant shivering with the cold.

            Then the mendicant unto him said,
            My dear sir, be not afraid,
            Pray give me lodgings for the night,
            And heaven will your love requite;
            Have pity on me, for I am tired and footsore,
            I have travelled fifteen miles to-day and more.

            Begone! you vagabond, from my door!
            I never give lodgings to the poor;
            So be off, take to your heels and run,
            Or else I’ll shoot you with my gun!
            Now do not think I’m making fun;
            Do you hear, old beggar, what I say?
            Now be quick! and go away.

            Have mercy, sir, I cannot go,
            For I shall perish in the snow;
            Oh! for heaven’s sake, be not so hard
            And God will your love reward.

            My limbs are tired, I cannot go away,
            Oh! be so kind as let me stay.
            ‘Twas vain! the rich man said, I shan’t,
            And shut his door on the mendicant,
            And said, That is the way I’ll serve the poor
            While I live on this lonely moor.

            Then the old mendicant did go away,
            And, murmuring to himself, did say,
            Oh, woe’s me that ever I was born!
            Oh, God, protect me from the storm!
            My feeble limbs refuse to go,
            And my poor heart does break with woe.
            Then he lay down and died among the snow.

            He was found by the rich man’s shepherd next day,
            While he was searching for sheep that had gone astray;
            And he was struck with fear and woe
            To see the body lying dead among the snow.

            So the shepherd ran home and told his master
            About the very sad disaster;
            That he had found a dead body in the snow,
            But whose it was he did not know.

            Then the rich man ordered the body to be brought to his house
            And to be instantly dressed by his loving spouse,
            For his conscience smote him with fear and woe,
            When he heard of the old mendicant being found dead in the snow.

            So the poor old mendicant was buried without delay
            In a very respectable way,
            And from that very day the rich man was kind to the poor
            And never turned any one away from his door.

            Never mind the beautiful bridge oer the silvery Tay – this is pure poetic torture!

          You can always finance the debt if you own the currency. Issue nicely minted pound notes when the debt comes up for redemption.
          There are no financial constraints on a sovereign nation with its own currency. It is always solvent (which is why joining the Euro is an exceptionally bad idea).

          There’s actually no need to issue debt at all. A government can just magic money into existence and spend it directly in the economy if it wants (remembering that it has to tax any surplus out of existence to prevent inflation).

          The issue is only whether the economy can absorb the liquidity such a policy would produce. If not then you need to cut spending or raise taxes to prevent inflation.

        Call me Infidel says:

        Prepare for chaos. This country is going over the cliff edge.

        I don’t disagree with you but I planned ahead for just such an eventuality. It was obvious to me that once Bliar was elected the second time around that it would all end in tears. The insanity of continual, above inflation increases in house prices, and the unfettered immigration policies the sewer party inflicted on Britain only reinforced my view that the UK was heading for disaster.

        I made my move two years ago and emigrated. However the death of the sewer party is what is needed before things will ever improve. I for one will be celebrating when the one eyed son of a nonce is dragged out of No10 and Ed Bollox loses his seat. Once they are destroyed Britain might stand a chance of getting back on track. However I don’t think Cameron is the bloke to do it. So I am quite happy for a plague to be visited on all three faces of the LibLabCon alliance.

      I think on the night the Conservatives will poll more than the opinion polls suggest. There is a large cohort of “shy voters” who, as a result of BBC etc portraying the Tories as the nasty party and therefore people who vote for them as a nasty person will only declare their views in private but not to a stranger. This is mitigated partly by the methodology of YouGov being an anonymous online panel, but then they weight their data from towards Labour and away from the Conservatives quite considerably on their own secret assumptions. In a comparison between raw data and the published weigthed data there has been as much as an over 6% difference in the projected Conservative lead.

      Sorry Ed, but Nick is going to lead the next main Opposition party and he doesn’t need Labour’s hand in marriage. On May 7 he’s going to look at the gap between himself and Cameron and think “hmm….I could jump that in five years, maybe less, considering that this lot are going to be very unpopular with the cuts they are going to have to make. Still, let them get on with it and I’ll scoop the results, the way Labour did in 1979″. One thing you’ve got to admit about the LibDems is that they are patient and don’t give up easily.

      If this is a post-Capitalist age (doubtful) then Labour has passed its sell-by date. It grew up quickly in an age of giant consolidated blocks of workers, but that world has gone. There just isn’t a role for you in this soap opera, history is writing you out.

      We believe that support is vital for parents in the crucial early years of a child’s life. We are offering parenting support and childcare which enables parents to work and train, advice and healthcare in a flexible and all-round setting. In order to deliver this, since the late 1990s we have been rolling out Sure Start Children’s Centres, and since 2005 we have been working to open a Children’s Centre in each community – a target we hit in March 2010.

They are also taught that their parents are bad and that their parents will try to mislead them into thinking unstatelike thoughts, and that they must learn to document what their parents do and inform on their parents to our state teachers who may take appropriate action against any parent who considers themselves above the state. This is recorded on the child’s permanent record.

        Labour have managed to trap millions of people into a life of dependency on benefits and tax credits. They have made at least 30% of the country utterly dependent on the labour party and a further 15% somewhat dependent.

        I guess that labour would count that as success.

        O/T but I was watching the news the other night and they interviewed a couple who work in the public sector and they were saying how scared they are now that they know that whoever wins the election they believed that there would be large cuts coming and they were fearful for the future.

        Well, As someone who EARNS a living in the private sector, selling products and services to the private sector, I say GOOD! It is about time that the fucking parasitic seat polishers who find new and more overwhelming ways to tie up businesses in red tape FELT the same fear that they inflict on businesses all the fucking time.

        WHY the fuck should people in the public sector be immune from the effects of the massive labour induced economic crash? Especially as it is these pen-pushing fuckers who have helped to undermine the competitiveness of British businesses.

        I have felt this fear for the future every day for YEARS! I still get up every morning and go out and try to make our clients more effective and productive and efficient. So that they can get More for Less.

    I despair at the lack of political nous showed by Cameron and his overpaid CCHQ handlers in prosecuting the election campaign. Labour and the Liberals should be dead, buried and out of sight right now and would have been were it not for Cameron’s folly. Immigration? Labour’s wrecking of the economy? The EU? Crime? Where’s the beef?

    My latest concern is that Cameron is failing to engage the enemy on the matter of electoral reform. As a result the Libs and Labour are setting the running on this issue aided and abetted by cheerleading for a hung Parliament by the champagne socialist ruling class. When electoral reform emerged as an issue the Tories should have set out a clear message on that engages with the innate conservatism of the people early on. Instead CCHQ were too busy puffing up the ‘Cameron’s Conservatives’, his ‘Big Society’ trendy-vicar nonsense. So now the Tories are having to play catch up. Again.

    There is nothing inherently wrong with the British system of first past the post voting in single member constituencies. When properly organised FPTP promotes a clear result and also promotes the direct responsibility of MPs to local electors. The unfair and undesirable aspects of the voting system largely relate to the fact that electorate boundaries are out of kilter and have been gerrymandered by Labour. This results in too wide a variation constituency size, in terms of the number of electors, and hence the number of votes needed to elect an MP in different areas. PR is no solution. It is a corrupt foreign confection that gives power to backroom wheeler dealing between party power brokers at the expense of ordinary voters.

    Time is running out, Dave. Up your game. The electoral extinction of the corrupt Labour Party was there for the taking, but you went native. You’ll be gone after the election if there is a hung Parliament, in which case it would be rightly so.

        Due to Labour’s corruption and incompetence, the challenges facing the country are far more serious than ever before. Cameron and CCHQ insults our intelligence by failing to address these head on and instead giving us the Big Society crap.

        I agree with above comments about Cameron’s advisors not having a good idea between them (how could they after going through the British education system?)

        A better slogan would imply the empowerment of the person as opposed to an all powerful state.

        How about more “people power” and less “state power”?

          I suppose at least they have one newish idea, labour have none and the libs just recycle old 1970′s ones.
          My interpretation of it is that they are trying to get people to rely less on the state, most tory supporters already do this. The message is too complex for Labour voters to understand

          Quite so. ‘Big’ anything is generally bad when promoted by a politician.

          I guess they Dave and his handlers felt the need for him to get all touchy feely and ‘progressive’ on us to counter the Eton / Bullingdon / rich boy jibes.
          ‘Big’ mistake.

          Dave and CCHQ have failed to appreciate is that outside of the chattering classes, most people don’t give a shit about Cameron’s background. If we did, Clegg’s stock would not have risen so sharply in the polls. The electorate is more mature than they give us credit for.

          We want the country’s finances sorted, immigration brought under control, criminals and bent politicians properly punished and such like. In short, we want competence and integrity in dealing with the big issues. We don’t really care what school you went to or what your Dad did for a living.

          What we don’t need is a fucking trendy vicar!

      This is the man who applauded the Grinning Chimp as he left the Commons to spend more time with his bank account.

      ‘Gone native’ just about sums it up.

      Fear ye not – Dave’s planting a tree for every baby born in Britain. That’s a vote winner for me!

    Bad design that. Using their colours and including a negative. The brain tends to ignore negatives.

    Strange as it may sound that film is more likely to induce a desire to vote labour. The message is overwhelmed by the subliminals.

      Nah.

      That’s the sort of demographic psychology voodoo used by TV companies making programs for ‘everyone’. It’s why modern sci-fi’s have so much soap.

      You’d need to have someone on a very high medication to see that vid and think “Wow, I’ll vote vote Labour”. Either that or they’re a total masochist.

    Has the BBC given reasons why it dropped it’s “Recommended” feature on “Have Your Say”?
    First time I’ve been on it for ages and it seems to be hijacked by the brainless, socialists and commies.

      I was gobsmacked to see a B&P election broadcast on BBC1 yesterday.
      I bet there was pulling of hair and gnashing of teeth at broadcasting house when that was going out.

        It was crap though – badly lit, poorly framed and generally not a professional production. I wondered if the BBC had deliberately degraded the quality, but watched it again on C4 and it was the same.

        I liked the Elgar, though – any party that plays Nimrod gets my vote.

      “Socialism” is imposed whilst “recommended” suggests free will. Hence the tendency for the claptrap to be voted down, and ergo the Beeb’s decommissioning of the “like it” feature.

    O/T…Do any of you whizz kids know why Guido’s site keeps crashing my Firefox?

    No other site does this..and it’s doing my head in!

      Does it to me sometimes too, but only on articles with lots (>700 or so) of comments.

      I’ve got NoScript installed, and disallowing YouTube content normally fixes it, but not always. NoScript also blocks the ads – well worth a try and it’s free (as in beer)!

    The British Civil Servant who produced a memo suggesting that the Grand Caliph of Jerusalum on his visit to the UK should open a bacon processing plant, followed by a beer tasting at a local brewery and then signing cartoons depicting the prophet Mohamed (blessed be his name) wearing a turban in the shape of a bomb has just been executed as a compromise to the religion of peace.

    Sums it all up.

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.”
