Gordon’s Cabinet Jaunts Live On

Gordon’s strategy of taking the Cabinet on away-days to marginal seats looks set to continue under Dave. Tomorrow he will convene his first Cabinet at an as of yet unannounced location. When these expeditions were set up the Tories called them ascandalouswaste of taxpayers’ money. “The cabinet taking a day trip out of London is not going to solve Britain’s economic problems” said George Osborne in 2008. Guess he will be staying home at No. 11 tomorrow then?

    Cameron is a total waste of space.

    I’m so glad I didn’t vote for him. At least I have the satisfaction of knowing I didn’t help him elbow his way into power. Even Osborne or Hague would make better leaders.

    Sir Reginald Titbrain says:

    Truly depressing. Short term I want to hear less from the government and long term see more happening.

    Dave wants to get a grip. He can scrap this meaningless circus and tell all the Government ministers to give the BBC the heave ho. Today, Newsnight and that plank Marr can spend all their time talking to Balls and Prescott and see if anybody cares or believes the nonsense they talk.

    I’ve had enough of this condescending PR tripe to last a good few years.

    It’s official,Nick Clegg is toast after this

    New limits on the rents on which Housing Benefit will be payable, to be introduced by the Conservative/Liberal Democrat Government, will mean that 84% of families in Westminster currently receiving Housing Benefit will lose out and face being made homeless or pushed further into poverty or forced out of Westminster.

    The figures, uncovered by Labour Councillors, show that of the current 5,430 Housing Benefit claims in Westminster, 4,592 (84%) would be over the new limits to be introduced by the Government:

    On Sunday afternoon I, along with a great many other people in England, watched the biggest load of bullshit i’d ever seen in my life.
    It was absolutely atrocious, over 90 minutes of complete, diabolical failure.
    I could barely even sit through it.
    And as for that fat idiot with the huge ears, he did absolutely fuck all for the entire thing! Utter disappointment.

    1. Find idiot child
    2. Feed said child school lunch.
    3. Watch for a lengthy period [this is the rewarding and difficult, pension accruing, part].

    Could someone please arrange a Munich style air crash for the returning England team in order that footballs scum generation can be wiped out and we can make a fresh start in the European championships. The sight of this happening and horrific deaths of the overpaid and pampered Prima Donna players would be almost as good as winning the world cup. We could mark the crash site with a big red cross and it could become a national shrine were England fans could come and urinate.

    What the f*ck did you expect of the new social democrat party?
    Did you really think cast iron Daves promises were not a pile of steaming doo doo?
    Do you believe Nigerian requests for money to free up millions and only an upfront fee will do?
    Do you believe the lonely hearts column contains accurate information and trust those who advertise themselves?
    WTF I really say WTF folks.

    The coalition is not going to cut the gigantic quango nonjob culture and in fact their job is to reinforce the shadow government and increase its power and influence. If the debt mountain is so urgent then why are they waiting months to do anything about it and why is the result an increase in spending over five years? The social democrats are building on the ‘achievements’ of newlabour and in fact after all the hype and bulls*it and waiting for them to start slashing the giant bloated state all they will do is protect their new world order state and common purpose shadow government.
    Do you think that there are too many nonjob quango parasites making up too many petty laws and duplicating each others pointless areas of influence? You aing seen nuthin yet folks, the state is about to get a whole lot bigger and stronger and more powerful than ever before, the EU will step in and take over vast swathes of pointless quango land and the socdems will claim it as a saving even while granting the EU more money to fund the transfer.
    Taxes will rise and you can say see ya to retiring this side of 70 and then taxes will rise and rise again and again.
    You f*cking cretinous tory voters actually thought you were voting for a tory party did you? I have a rather nice bridge for sale in Brooklyn you might like to buy.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
