The Plot Thickens…

Ed Balls has been on the phone to a friendly ear to unequivocally deny he was behind the Burnham briefing Guido mentioned earlier:

There is no truth in these allegations, in these smears about me or my supporters. It is complete nonsense. Andy and I get on very well and no one from my team was involved in these briefings. Andy Burnham and I spoke this morning and we both agreed that any suggestion of him pulling is out rubbish. We both agreed that no one surrounding me has made this allegation. And both of us think there is mischief being made — but it’s not coming from my team or his team. It’s coming from a third party.

But then he would say that wouldn’t he, or is a Miliband being clever?

      O, why does it matter a fcuk who is to become eventually the leader of the “New GramscoFabiaNazi Party”? Who are all these people now crawling out of the woodwork to become the leader, who will “fight to unite the party” and “fight to return Labour to power”? What are they doing this dangerous and subversive stuff for?

      Can’t this dangerous, scary business be stopped before it does us any more damage? Can’t the Police just impound all their computers, forcibly take all their children “into care” and sell them to lawyers and bureaucrats, and put the campaigning-bastards on the DNA database which they created, or something?

          the idiot police have managed to take someone who on sunday was a murder and make him into a folk hero.

          i live in brixton & we have a lot of shootings, stabbings, gang rapes, gang attacks and so on. the police do fuck all about it, they are too busy in the kebab shop or busting people at the station for not having a ticket. as soon as it is one of their own they go fucking mental, deploying 100s of highly armed police to a village up north and pointing guns at old ladies.

          the guy’s message of “the police fucked me up now i’ll fuck them up” resonates with a lot of people nowadays (g20 police, road traffic facism, photographers as terrorists, hate speech and so on). the police i don’t think thought about this , they thought the people are just well up for g-36 toting robocops with better equipment than the forces in afghan and police snipers to catch a single fucking geordie.

          well, they miscalculated and they made the geezer into a hero. now we’re supposed to believe from their psychological warfare (sorry, PR) department that the guy “poses a threat to the wider public” in a piss poor attempt to deflate the ever growing myth of raul – the – fucking – ballsy – geordie; #fuckthepolice. they’re worried that all the other people they’ve persecuted over the years are going to copycat and are determined to control the narrative. the idiot media just laps it up and punts it out.

          what a fucking farce. tens of millions to turn a murderer into a hero. well in pigs

    Right O/T, but today’s Strasbourg ruling to stop the extradition of Abu Hamza to the USA says all you ever needed to know about the United Kingdom’s descent into the nonsensical world of Human Rights where the lawyers make a fortune and the bad guys become untouchable and good men stand by and wring their hands.

    The trouble is that the government doesn’t have the bottle to put him and his family on the next flight to New York, cancel their passports and let the US courts do whatever they want with him. The dripping wet Strasbourg mob go to hell and take every Human Rights lawyer with them.

    Yvette (Massive debt accumulated during my time as Chief cunt to the Treasury) Cunt Cooper MP says:

    What is essential for the Labour Party is that it has a leader who is skilled in the art of smearing, unofficial briefings, back stabbing, and is of course a stranger to the truth.
    We urgently need a leader who is comfortable in the company of corrupt and undemocratic trotskyist Union barons.

    The Party requires a leader who must shout from the rooftops that he did not agree in any way with the myriad of disastrous anti English policies, which he chose not to resign over when in office.

    Furvermore the party desperately needs a leader who is wedded to the belief that the public sector is the engine of economic growfes.
    All economists wot disagrees with this idealogy must be dismissed and smeared as dirty Toryists.

    Same old coalition,clueless on the UK economy

    The International Monetary Fund slashed growth forecasts for the UK today despite predicting a faster than expected recovery for the global economy.

    Its latest quarterly World Economic Outlook lowered UK growth estimates to 1.2% for this year and 2.1% in 2011, down from the 1.3% and 2.5% it predicted in April.

    The IMF report prompted attacks from Shadow Chancellor Alistair Darling on the savage clampdown unveiled in June’s emergency Budget, which aims to claw back an annual £113 billion in spending cuts and tax hikes by 2014/15 to tackle the deficit.

    “This downgrade shows the huge risk the new Government is taking by deliberately choosing to take so much money out of the economy. At a time when growth in Europe is moribund it’s increasingly clear that the Government is risking jobs and recovery,” Mr Darling warned.

    The IMF’s latest report puts UK growth next year below the 2.3% predicted by the Office for Budget Responsibility.

    But the body also warns of the danger of cutting too fast. The IMF said: “Growth prospects in advanced economies could suffer if an overly severe or poorly planned fiscal consolidation stifles still-weak domestic demand,” it added

    Fluttering and dancing by the stoat.

    In vacant or in pensive quote,
    They flash upon that inward jolt
    Which is the vote of solitude;
    And then my heart with pleasure dotes,
    And dances with the daffodils.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
