Peppa Pig has Left the Building

Labour last night issued a press release last night promising:

Peppa Pig Accepts Labour Invitation to Join Visit to Children’s Centre
The Labour Party has organised a visit to a children’s centre in South London to highlight our policies to support families. Yvette Cooper and Tessa Jowell will be shown around the centre and we are delighted that Peppa Pig, the star of children’s television, has accepted our invitation to join the visit.

For those of you without children under 5, Peppa Pig is a mega-star phenomenon, bigger than even Elvis nowadays.  Guido understands that Peppa Pig has pulled out of the event for fear it would be seen as an endorsement of the Labour Party…

UPDATE : Scenes of devastating disappointment at the Coin Street Nursery as tearful toddlers and young mothers learn a bitter lesson: Labour breaks its promises. Tearful toddlers asking “Where’s Peppa Pig? You promised!” Angry mothers and wailing children can only blame the wicked witches; Yvette and Tessa. Yvette has just issued one of her barmy soundbites “the Conservative and Liberal Democrats would form a ‘Coalition of Cuts for Children’ that would put children in the frontline for spending cuts”.  Not claiming they would actually eat your babies – which was probably what Ed Balls wanted to claim.

    Conclusion (part 94)

    The Conservatives are now frightened of promoting laissez-faire because of the bad behaviour of so many banks. Why do all the parties regard this as a black or white issue? The most effective solution should be light regulation but strongly enforced where it remains. The Aristotelian Golden Mean.

    Everyone knows the rules. It is simpler to monitor. Every so often someone gets slapped – hard.

    Kick out the kirk!

    Peppa Pig says “fuck off, I’m not Labour”


    The company which licenses children’s TV character Peppa Pig has withdrawn her from a Labour party election event.

    The pre-school character was due to visit a children’s centre later as part of Labour’s launch of their manifesto for families.

    But E1 Entertainment said it had agreed the character should not attend the event to avoid any controversy.

    I am the only one to see the irony in a party that says it wants to concentrate on substance appearing with Elvis and a Pig? Or it may be that Gordon really believes that these are his closest policy advisers – along with the ghost of his father and the Tooth Fairy.

    One evening in October,
    When I was about one third sober,
    I was taking home a load with manly pride;
    My poor feet began to stutter,
    So I lay down in the gutter,
    And a pig came up and lay down by my side.

    Then we sang a song fair weller,
    And good fellas ger together,
    Till a lady passing by was heard to say,
    She says, “You can tell a man who boozes
    By the company he chooses”,
    And the pig got up and slowly walked away.

    Paul Gadd joins Gordon Brown in supporting Labour:

    The celebrity endorsements continued today when legendary rocker Paul Gadd joined Elvis and Pippa Pig to urge people to vote for them next week because “its the right thing to do”. He added “we have all made mistakes in our past, but that’s where they are – in the past. Gordon Brown is the ultimate leader of the gang and I’m confident he will will fix the British economy so cruelly broken by the Americans. In fact in a new administration Ed Balls will be moving up to chancellor so I’m in the frame for his old job”.

    the horse and cow live thirty years
    and nothing know of wine or beers
    the goat and sheep at twenty die
    never tasting scotch or rye
    the sow drinks water by the ton
    and at eighteen is almost done
    the dog at fifteen cashes in
    without the aid of rum or gin
    the cat in milk and water soaks
    and then at twelve short years it croaks
    the modest sober home dry hen
    lays eggs for years and dies at ten
    all animals are strictly dry
    they simply live and simply die
    but sinful ginful rum-soaked men
    survive for three score years and ten
    and some of them the mighty few
    stay pickled till they’re ninty two !

    Too right, moniker – the big problem with the banks (as an elderly relative who turned down the job of head of the FSA explained to me) was that they were run by shopkeepers, who had no concept of risk.

    Under the old BOE regime, the banks would have had to have proper risk management, and the fiasco of CDOs with triple-A ratings would never have arisen, since the cheap mortgages of 5x earnings wouldn’t have been available, and the banks would have done their own risk assessments rather than relying on the credit agencies.

    But then again that was old style banking, where the work was for the benefit of the customers, and the benefits, though ample, were reasonable.

    His open goal has to be Northern Rock first bank run in a century, all because of lack of regulation Brown.

    Also he needs to highlight the China effect, where money markets were awash with funds and these banks lent long and borrowed short. This is why Northern Rock and B&B got into trouble.

    It was not a world recession it was a credit crunch and ripple effect of Lehman being allowed to fail. Without first ensuring the capitalist system refreshed itself.

    He shd also highlight the way the government has engineered the money markets to assist the banks the Labour party like to use politically to re-build their balance sheets

    Also, Peppa has enough with dinosaurs with her little brother, George, without having to deal with the Labour Party dinosaurs.

  94. 94

    So, Gordon’s relaunch to concentrate on policy has been aided by a dead, lard-arse, pill-popping po’ whaat traash sideburn-wearing, over-rated popster, and a pink pig. And the pig has shat on him.

    This isn’t going well, is it Gordon?

    I’m telling yers… we’re on course for a bit of an upset. I feel in my bodily fluids, those untainted by Labour’s malign socialism, that Call Me Dave is going to pull it off. My bile says an overall majority. Small but adequate. Twenty or thirty seats.

    Labour’s vote is like a well used paper hanky – here and there are crusty permanent clumps (the tribal vermin who vote Labour because their grannies did), the foul coloured smears (labour’s paid stooges of the public sector, the dull-witted teachers and other useful idiots), and the stiff spots of unexpectedly ejected jism (the easily swayed fools who think Sarah seems so nice so maybe Gord ain’t so bad)… but between these nuggest of support lies an unravelling mess of tenuous strands, vast distended ruptures, and plain old gashes… Labour’s support is beyond fragile… Even Labour’s most ardent supporters despise their leaders – how bizarre is that? Labour’s vote is almost wholly composed of people that anyone decent would consider vermin, AND a paid cohort who probably secretly think they’re vermin themselves.

    Lord, save us from this black horror of socialism, smite down the socialists of all parties, and return us to the sunlit higher ground of vicious, clean, wholesome, honest, dog-eat-dog capitalism.

    Is it an autobiography? If that’s a genuine quote then it suggests she may have saved the money on getting it ghost written and wrote the shite herself.

    As you say – these fucking publishers must be off their heads advancing any cash to any of these politicians (or their wives) or these celebrities. What was it Blair got? A million? Two million? [Goes to check] Fuck me – 4.5 million quid. When we all know he will simply put into his own words what a fucking terrifically great chap he is/was and how he’s shocked, yes shocked, that the intelligence that lead to the Iraq war turned out to be faulty. Nobody more surprised than me. Honestly. You can trust me. But it was still the right thing to do.

    Even if he told the truth it wouldn’t be worth that kind of money.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that a lot of these book deals are just money laundering. None of them ever seem to cover the cost of the advance. Anybody who wants to read it will probably get it serialised in the paper gratis in any case. Any ‘shocking’ revelations will be discussed in the papers or on TV.

    These advances are no more than third party kick-backs as far as I can tell. The publishers are just middlemen.

    Babies, or children, with their parents is fair game, as their responsible adult makes a choice. But since Bush hid in a school in Florida on that fateful day and the news reader in CA laughed about the sudden trip the night BEFORE, it has been seen that running away to hide behind children is wrong.

    Why should children be used? Time to put a stop to this.

    Grannies voted for Call Me Dave?

    Wotcha gotta realise chum is that Dave is not a conservative (with a mantra of “change”?) and he certainly is no Tory; he’s just another fucking thirdwayer faker with a socialist Statist mindset – I think he will win, I certainly don’t support him.

    yes, he’ll be better than Brown. Peppa Pig would be better than Brown. But by winning, Dave potentially damages the prospects for decent government in this country, by rewarding and entrenching the socialist entryism into the tories.

    it’s all a horrible fucking fuckup.

    Another pollster has the gap narrowing
    As the Guardian has broken the embargo these figures are now in the public domain.

    What is the final poll for tonight has the blues dropping but shows the yellows moving to their best ever position with the pollster.

    Looking at the detail 21% of Labour supporters and 8% of Conservative supporters at the 2005 General Election have now switched to the Lib Dems – quite significant proportions.

    What’s clear from almost all the polling is that the Lib Dem bounce is still there and that the Tories will be feeling mighty uneasy. After all a 32% share is LESS than what Michael Howard’s Tories achieved in 2005.

I have an engineering degree and was able to point out that the device operated off a 24volt battery with a charger that could be plugged into any 13amp socket for which the current earthing was 100%. He had to go off and get special permission to arrange fitting in that way. Most of their business is with councils of course, who no doubt would have paid the totally unnecessary rewiring costs without question. And the £500 per year maintenance costs for ever…

    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.

    Tell me. And if we needed any further proof, see what IFS have said today. But I think all the parties currently look at it as black and white outside of election times too. Who amongst them have any real experience in banking or commerce?

    But can Wavy Davy (now known as Lounge Suit Dave) take any advantage? Noooooo. The public have seen through all this patronising twaddle. Avram Grant for PM – he can actually make something out of very little – which is all we’ve got now that the Unions and the Bankers have carved the country up between them.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
