    If only.

    I reckon Glegg is just getting the best deal he can out of Cameron before trotting off to Brown to see if he’ll match/better it.

    WHY IS AN ENGLISH COMPANY EXCLUDED?

    http://www.crainsmanchesterbusiness.co.uk/article/20100510/FREE/100519999/1012

    Virgin Money, is out of the race to acquire 318 branches being sold by Royal Bank of Scotland (LSE: RBS).

    Sir Richard Branson’s new banking business was told on Friday that it was being excluded from the bidding, in which it had been one of the final four.

    Other contenders are Santander and BBVA from Spain and National Australia Bank, which owns Yorkshire Bank.

    RBS, 83 per cent owned by the government, has been forced to sell them by European competition regulators as a condition of receiving state aid to help it survive the financial crisis.

    The branch network, which is heavily concentrated in areas such as the North West and North Wales, together with its associated business and private accounts, would help a new entrant to UK banking to quickly build a competitor to existing high street banks and are expected to change hands for more than £1bn.

    Tory MPs have been offered a free vote on a PR referendum

    Lots going on behind the scenes. The Tory whips are working the phones to rally support for the idea of a formal deal with the Lib Dems. I’m picking up a lot of anger among some Conservatives who fear that Dave is about to sell out to Nick Clegg when he doesn’t need to.

    The Prime Minister says:

    This morning I can announce that after a weekend of deliberations between my new friend Nick and the liberal democrats, a new deal has been struck which will allow the country to continue to be run by a coalition government of myself.
    The talks have been frank, sometimes tense, sometimes bruising, sometimes requiring the attendance of paramedics, but always cordial.

    I have, after 13 years of ignoring, or blocking it, agreed that I might be in favour of informal, non-binding talks, perhaps sometime in the future, if space can be found in a busy legislative programme, on the issue of proportional representation.

    The liberal democrats, suckers that they are, have agreed.

    So now I will be getting on with the big job of running the economy, saving the world, shafting sterling, selling more gold, robbing your pensions and throwing nokias. It’s business as usual. Thank you.

    Al says:

    Do the BBC not realise that Labour lost the election and are now largely irrelevant?

    Most of the people still being interviewed on BBC political programmes and news bulletins are Labour politicians and supporters. Nothing seems to have changed despite the fact that it is now the Tories and Lib Dems who are about to become the next government.

    Some Labour MPs are even demanding that parliament be recalled so that they can have a say in these negotiations. Labour MPs never had a say when their party was in government, so why should they have a say now?

  45. 45

    Yeah the DUP are natural labour partners.

    From 2am Thursday mornign the BBC were hyping up a LibLab deal – despite the maths. I honestly believe Nick Robinson cannot add a three digit and two digit number; that’s the only possible explanation for this drivel continuing.

    And another lie: Labour are offering PR. No, they are not. They are not. Labour are and have offered a referrendum on swapping FPTP for the Alternative Vote – this is *not* a PR system. It is the choice of the core left vermin – which is why you now hear twats like Will Straw shouting “fair votes!” in their reedy little voices, rather than PR. The language on the left is now about “fair votes”, “reform”, “balance” – not proportion. Why? Cus they have seen the results of a reasonable PR system in the Euros and it doesn’t (as they want) hand all the seats to the centre left.

    With m-m STV+ for westminster we’d have the right of UKIP, as well as the far left of the B&P sitting in the Commons, and labour can’t stick that idea… They’re no more in favour of actual PR than the most diehard FPTPer in the tories.

    Oh! For fucks sake let Gordon carry on leading us.
    “It’s the right thing to do” The man is obviously so far advanced in his thinking that they just don’t appreciate what he can do for the country. Our country has prospered under his stewardship and we should look forward to another 5years of labour rule. After all they won the most seats, so they have a right to govern!! I just don’t know or care what those Sassenachs in little England are getting worked up about. This Cameron guy has only one seat where it matters in the real power base of the UK!!

    Geordie Scoot says:

    I still think Brown will be PM by this time next week – with or without the LD’s propping him up. He will plough on to Queen’s Speech and then dare the LD’s to defeat him. Brown puts self before Party and Party before Country (Scotland) and England features nowhere. He also has a pathological tendency to equate himself with the national interest and hold the Tories as counter to that interest by default.

    The key word there, moniker, is ‘suitable’.

    I believe that there is a big question mark over the extent of inter-company loans being used to play fast and loose with reported profits and tax liabilities in the various Virgin companies, and for the regulators to allow similar practices in a bank would be somewhat remiss…

  74. 74

    I think thats because Labour are now irrelevant to the discussions so are the only ones available to talk on camera and hang about in BBC TV studio’s. I’m listening to Labour MP spinning now on News 24, predicting “riots.” They are quite evil and without shame, and would be better employed finding a less deranged leader.

    Nonsense. Even with PR the Tories will be in this situation again. Largest right-wing(ish) party scouting about for a few additional votes to carry the country. It is Labour and the Liberals who will be scavanging votes off each other.

    Actually, with PR delivered then I’d expect the Labour and Liberal vote to split all over the shop. They certainly won’t all be voting en masse for Labour.

    Look what they did in the Scottish elections under PR. Suddenly no need to vote Labour just to keep the Tories out.

    It’ll be the law of unintended consequences for Labour all over again. they created their little provincial dynasties in the confident knowledge that Wales and Scotland would vote Labour uber alles and within eight years they were looking at an SNP government up there.

    Now they think that the Labour voting enclaves of the wider UK will continue to vote Labour under PR?

    Talk about bringing the Temple down.

    Absolutely agree JA. Not in a million years would I have wanted a pact with the Limp Dums, but we are where we are and will just have to make the best of it. The alternative – another few years of NuLiebour profligacy, bullying and breathtaking incompetence – will see this country reduced to a complete basket case. At least this way Cleggy get to share the blame if it all goes belly up, so I hope DC makes certain that the LDs are well and truly tied in to whatever the future holds.

  82. 82
    Ahm no' resignin.....Brown says:

    There now follows a Prime Ministerial Broadcast from the Rt Hon Gordon Brown,
    “My fellow Britons,

    I have listened to your views expressed in the recent election.It is obvious to me that the overwhelming vote of the electorate was for a progressive alliance of the parties on the left of British politics and that the Conservatives have been totally rejected by the majority of the British electorate.

    I have therefore to-day formed an alliance with the Liberal Party to ensure secure and stable government for the United Kingdom.Both I and Nick Clegg assisted by the Scottish and Welsh Nationaist parties acting in the national interest will ensure that the recovery is not put at risk by the dangerous policies of the Conservative Party who continue to act in the narrow party interest that has so typified their actions over the past few days and weeks. I will never shirk from my duty to the nation and I will continue to serve the nation and deliver a firm,stable and principled government for the few not the many.!”

    Mike Litorus says:

    I think Cameron would be happy no matter who the Libs go with (apart from the economy resembling Zimbabwe of course)

    Lib/CON coalition – Libs split, Cameron calls election, wins with healthy majority as everyone know the Libs are gone.
    Lib/Lab coalition – hahahahaha. Lib vote evaporates, Cameron manages to force an early election, what with the losers taking control (call it a coup Dave, froth it up a bit), and Lib vote evaporates for bringing McRuin back from the dead. Cameron wins with healthy majority.

    I am merely waiting for the time when he decides to retire to take up a senior post at the Age Concern shop in the Outer Hebrides before I promote my friend David Miliband as our next leader and take up the position of Foreign Secretary myself.

    This party needs real men running it and our country’s affairs…Milivanilly and I are those men…so the great unwashed can continue kissing my ring as plebs did Kings in the old days. Happy days Gordon’s going away but I’m here to stay..trust in meeeeeeeee. PipPip

    GoToCountryNow – epetition response

    We received a petition asking:

    “We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to call a general election immediately.”

    Details of Petition:

    “The last two local elections have shown that the people are no longer prepared to tolerate Nu-Labour without a mandate. Gordon Brown is a spent force and MUST now immediately go to the country – anything less will be be outright political fraud and maintenance of their expensive troughing lifestyles at all cost.”

    Read the Government’s response

    Thank you for your e-petition.

    As you may be aware, a general election must be called before June 2010, when the whole country will have an opportunity to express their point of view.

    In the meantime, you may be interested to read the Government’s recently published plan, Building Britain’s Future. The document sets out a radical vision for a fairer, stronger and more prosperous society for all.

    You can read the proposals, and take part in the debate about the country’s future, at the following website

    Look on them as a political party with their own agenda and five hundred members.

    They are utterly irrelevant.

    Let them put up candidates in the next election or shut the fuck up.

    Thick As Thieves says:

    David Cameron was this morning telling everyone just how excited he is by the prospect of his imminent third date with Nick Clegg, reminding everyone that a third date means he is ‘definitely up for it’.

    It is rumoured that Cameron and Clegg have been in almost constant contact since their first date on Friday, with Conservative party insiders claiming Cameron has barely been able to sleep, such is his infatuation with the Liberal Democrat leader.

    Despite two fairly lukewarm dates so far, Clegg’s willingness to see Cameron for a third time has led many Tory supporters to conclude that their man is about to get exactly what he has been after all along.

    One Conservative strategist explains, “Everyone knows what the third date means. It means the night ends with a massive smile on my face.”

    “People might be playing down the significance of a third date, but trust me, David’s cooking isn’t that good. Nick is only coming round because he is up for it – definitely.”

    With speculation now rife that some sort of formal copulation between the two is imminent, senior Lib Dem party members have encouraged their leader not to give in to Cameron’s charms too easily.

    One told us, “Nick shouldn’t feel pressured. If David really wants him, he’ll be willing to wait for him.”

    “It seems like the only person who can’t see that David is only after him for his seats, is Nick. He’s becoming more smitten by the day, and I just know this will all end in tears.”

    “I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Nick Clegg is worth so much more than this, and he shouldn’t feel the need to do as David says just because he is scared he might lose him.”

    “Yes, he might enjoy a little roll in the hay now, but trust me, he’ll look back on this in years to come and wish he’d kept it in his pants.”

    Maybe because they don’t believe Virgin is the right company for the job? Unless, of course, RB didn’t please the ‘right’ people?

    Can't remember my moniker says:

    I chose my words with care, Paragnostic! I know about Virgin’s unaccountability but suitable change in such status could be made a condition of eligibility to tender. It should not be insoluble. IKEA is structured even more ‘cleverly’ than Virgin. I see large sovereign states as more likely to default. The point is that it gives all the appearances of being politically, and not financially or stability consciously, motivated. (en route)

    The longer this void exists with no-one having a grip of the situation and a firm hold of power the easier and easier it is for the socialist mob and their union leaders to foment unrest. Meanwhile the lowlife scum underclass continue to proliferate and offend with no restraint.

    Exactly. Who do they represent?

    That pillock Bragg is really out of his tree. Who the fuck does he think he is? He was a crap singer and he makes an even worse agitator. He needs a good bricking to bring him to his senses.

    isn’t virgin money backed up by the Bank of America?

    I may be completely in the wrong, but I have a Virgin credit card and whenever I go online I see “Bank of America” written everywhere. I had come to the conclusion that Branson was a PR media face for a Bank of America venture?

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.”
