The ‘Looney Left’ is Back

As the Blairites retire to their non-executive directorships and their former SpAds run herd-like to become leader of the Labour Party by tacking to the voter-repelling left, it is fair to say that Labour’s once marginalised looney left is back.  Even David Miliband, formerly Blair’s tea-boy, now supports a 50% tax rate, has become a born-again peacenik, personally nominated Diane Abbott and is, all in all, beginning to sound like a student union leftie.

So Guido intends to regularly highlight examples of left-wing lunacy going mainstream – today it is the ever reliable Bob Crow describing the spending freeze as “fiscal fascism”. The sophistication of his political and economic analysis would have Karl Marx revolting – fascism did not seek to reduce the size and role of the state.

Bob’s policy of choice? A general strike. Just what a weak economy needs to boost jobs and growth.  Crazy? Well Bob reckons “hundreds of thousands of workers will take to the streets.”

It is as if Tony Blair never existed…

      So this is what Gordon's doing- at the taxpayer's expense says:

      What Gordon Brown did next – former PM writing history of the banking crisis

      Seven weeks ago, Gordon Brown took the hand of his young son and, accompanied by the rest of his family, walked from Downing Street for the last time. Since then, while his wife Sarah has continued to Tweet enthusiastically, almost nothing has been seen or heard of the former PM.

      There was a visit to a school in his constituency, and last Thursday a solitary – and brief – appearance in the Commons. David Cameron criticised Brown for failing to appear in the Commons to defend the bankrupt state in which, in his view, his predecessor had left the country.

      But the economy still seems to be at the forefront of Brown’s mind. He has been writing an account of the origins of the banking crisis, its implications for capitalism and, of course, his central role in trying to prevent the global recession turning into a much more profound depression.

Stop paying the strikers and we save a fortune and pay off the deficit quicker.

        Obviously I would hope that this would not spread to front-line hospital services, policing and schools. But if 1,000,000 bin inspectors, or fridge inspectors, or nappy coordinators or window-cleaner obvservers, etc went on strike, it would be brilliant!

      Unless someone over-reacts to this empty “threat”, this isn’t Greece or France. I just don’t see the public sector going on mass-strike, apart from a handful of permanently angry malcontents looking for a day-off. Not do I see the general public engaging in strike action in support of a huge state bureaucracy. (“What do we want? Monitoring! When do we want it? As appropriate!”)

      The Coalition seems to have a lot of support for its actions so far. Everyone understands the necessity for cuts, the logic seems to work, and it looks more or less fair. Mostly, people are glad to see the back of the last lot and still have considerable optimism about the new lot.

      The numbers and support for a General Strike just don’t seem credible. Of course, we still have to put up with the Beeb and the Guardian going on about it until the results for Wimbledon are in, but that’s the price of democracy I’m afraid. Wimbledon that is, not the Beeb or the Guardian.

      I think that all this represents is that Bob Crow just bent over and let-off an eggy one in public. Like all small children he thinks he has been desperately funny and clever, but the rest of us are just glad he’s nothing to do with us. He will run around getting over-excited until he bumps into something and cries or drinks the bleach under the sink and is sent to hospital. In the meantime, he seems to be able to recite his lessons like a good boy without tripping-up on the long words, slurring his words into rude ones, or looking bored and losing concentration.

      If we are patient, he may grow-up into a well-adjusted personality with no obvious mental defects.

            Maybe they will. I think we’ve gotten too used to frustration and lunacy. Maybe they will pursue a Decapitation Strategy and we lose 50% of the managers. Good for the economy, good for the blood pressure of the lowly minions. Forget about Departments and Quango’s, otherwise you’ll just see a series of amalgamations with no reduction in headcount. Look at legal responsibilities, consultancy companies and employment agencies. Unclamp these from the neck of the public sector and you should see the costs plummet.

            Once upon a time, there used to be messengers, typists, tea-ladies, administrators, etc. These were all done away with over time and replaced with twice as many business partners, policy managers, strategy analysts, diversity co-ordinators, etc, pooling a devolved system of secretarial and office support. I don’t recall the country needing quite so many forward planners, accountants, finance, procurement, or legal staff, to name a few. They never won the Empire or defeated Hitler as far as I’m aware. I recently saw an advert for a Combat HR Officer for the Army which made me laugh. Unfortunately, it wasn’t April. Perhaps the country can learn to live without these jobs once more, without being afraid the world will end as a result.

            Wouldn’t it be fun if the whole process was reversed. The useless over-professionalised parasites could be swept away and replaced with only half that number of jobs that can be easily explained to small children, ones that actually did something (gasp!) useful.

Actually, it was 12, with 3 thinking about joining apparently. The official was arrogant to the extreme defending his right to be paid so much, and would not divulge where the funds were coming from to keep him afloat. Other parts of the UK have similar arrangements. And the members cannot see they are being ripped off by their own ‘brothers’.

        There has been a lot of research that clearly demonstrates a strong causative link between children’s diets and their academic performance and general behaviour in class.

        When successive governments undermined teachers ability to instil discipline in the classroom, it has been getting to a stage where too many classrooms were in a state of utter and total chaos. This was not only costly in terms of the lack of education to the disruptive children, but the lack of education given to the other children in the class, causing them to fall behind. It is also costly to the tax-payer in terms of sick pay for the teachers who are at their wits end trying to teach these disruptive, unteachable classes.

        It has been established that food additives and poor diet has been a strong causative factor in many of these disruptive pupils. Giving these kids a healthy diet has allowed many of them to excel at school, giving them the benefit of a good education, allowed other kids to get on with their studies too and saved the sanity of many teachers.

        To portray this as “health fascism” is not true and deeply damaging.

    This is a bit feeble, Guido. You’ll have to do better than Bob Crow – even the loonies regard him as a looney, and you can hardly say that he’s returned when he’s never been away.

    Amused by the golf-club-bar splutterings, though. Thai ladyboys and Cuban brothels – I like that! You lot always run so satisfyingly true to type, just like Crow and his ilk. Keep it up lads – we’re going to need a few laughs in the grim years ahead.

      The disclosure of the salaries of its “talent” and the pension rethink will have the luvvies a tad worried.

      The BBC's digital future says:

      Not having watched BBC “news” and current affairs programmes for a while, their leftism has become even more glaringly obvious to me. Fortunately, the BBC’s digital services should soon provide them with an easy transition into a subscription based viewing model with no further need for any outmoded license enforcement. Doubtless they will want to pursue this avenue to protect their content from the non-license payers that have troubled them for so long. Maybe they could introduce a package that included a subscription to the Labour Party, just like they have now but optional.

    The use of the Anglo-Saxon word to describe the beauty of the female sanctum is often used as a term of abuse. This twat is too bloody neanderthal to describe with that word.

    Just a thought on the prison doesn’t work debate.
    Has anybody done a survey on people who re-offend on parking on yellow lines.
    It obviously isn’t working as we would not need so many wardens.
    About time the stopped bothering.

      The latest accessory from BMW. 15 metres of double-yellow lines rolled up and in the boot. If you cannot find any to park on, park on your own. Porsche are hitting back by introducing a fold out ‘disabled bay’ to put in their cars.

        When I left school, I valeted cars for about a year. We had contracts with most of the local dealerships and what I notices, whenever we did a Pre Delivery Inspection valet on a new Merc, there was ALWAYS a disabled sticker in the windscreen already.

        Buy a merc, park where you like!!!

    Marxist union scum – maggie should have destroyed filth like this completely. They are parasites who leech the blood from their members – as our friend says in 51 above – but the public mood has changed since the 70′s and 80′s and they will find that there is little patience for their strikes this time around.

    It never ceases to amaze me how humourless and devoid of grace the Hard Lefties are. Bob Crow on “Have It got news..” was like a dark cloud hanging over the whole show. I suppose their brains are so worked up with anger and angst over all the injustices in the world there is no room for humour. Being only irritable is probably as good as it gets in their world.

    I note that many of the leftie comedians of the Thatcher years have quietly sold out and pocketed the cash.

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
