Diane’s Dialling Dilemma

Guido was following up, what turned out to be, a dud tip-off last week that gave him reason to put a call into the Abbott campaign. Or at least try to. It turns out it’s quite hard to find any contact information on her website, in fact there are no details. After a quick ring around, the consensus was that the person he needed to talk to was Sally Scott, who handles Diane’s media. All very well except the number he was given was a parliamentary one…

Abbott has barely raised any money for her campaign, but that does not give her an excuse to flout the very clear rules that state you cannot use your parliamentary office, phone lines or staff hours for campaigning in an internal party election. Abbott’s website for her constituents states Scott handles her media concerning her job as an MP. She is breaking the rules if there is no defined crossover. Guido cannot see how his chat on Friday, about Andy Burnham, with a publicly funded spinner, Sally Scott, could have aided Abbot’s constituents in Hackney in any way.

    In her own mind, she feels like she doesn’t have to follow the rules. She considers herself so disadvantaged that she is allowed to use tax payer funded facilities for her campaign.

    She is the token candidate on almost every level- female, black, fat, single parent. This means that in her mind she can do whatever she wants and justify it.

    She’s doing this for all those people in society who are in the same boat as she is, struggling to get by on an MP’s salary and expenses. Life’s tough for her, so she makes up her own rules.

    Off topic, but what the heck.

    It seems that Chris Huhne has been talking to people who actually know what they’re talking about with regard to the UK’s future electricity supplies. Apparently, when he was telling us all before the election that we didn’t really need nuclear power, he was ‘misunderstood’.

    http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/davidhughes/100050057/how-could-we-possibly-have-thought-chris-huhne-was-anti-nuclear/

    Let’s hope for the nation’s sake that he carries on listening to people telling truths, and not to the blinkered loonies he was pandering to before the election.

    Gimme those ole beef curtains
    I got the beef curtain blues

    Woke up this morning
    was feeling kinda dead
    The caravan’s new awning
    didn’t cover the damp bed

    Looked over to the missus
    naked as a whore
    she’s open to abuses
    and showing her back door

    Gimme those ole beef curtains
    I got the beef curtain blues

    My morning wood’s a goodun
    though it won’t last for long
    it wants some fanny fun
    if a fanny wants a dong

    I really need to move her
    I make to turn her fast
    but Margaret can’t be bovvered
    So I take her in the arse

    Gimme those ole beef curtains
    I got the beef curtain blues

    I suspect that we will end up begging the EU for an extension to the lives of the coal-fired stations we’re supposed to shut down on environmental grounds in (I think) 2015. (We should, of course, just tell the EU to piss off and mind it’s own business, but it won’t happen.) We could obviate that by building some replacement coal-fired stations now – construction of Kingsnorth should be resumed asap, for example, forgetting the rather risible carbon-capture stuff.

    Suspect such things will happen, but it’ll be interesting to see how the gummint wraps up or spins the announcements to try and wrong-foot the greenies.

    or
    How many anti social offences are required to be amassed to even think about charging a hoodie.

    “Personal life
    Despite his very high salary (£ 103,000) he lives in a publicly subsidised housing association property in Woodford, Greater London with partner Nicola Hoarau and they have a daughter (born August 1993).. ”

    Parliament has neither a desire nor the capacity for promoting the interests of the British people.
    If you examine the Lib/Lab/Con core policies from a British perspective, they are not just treacherous but insane.
    Catch-22, however, dictates that rational discussion is permitted on only policies that are not demonstrably mad.
    I’ve yet to see anybody here defend Cameron’s ring-fenced and ever-growing foreign aid budget (currently of £7 billion and change) except to state, as though it were carved in holy stone, that it’s a must and we absolutely have to borrow it to give it away again.

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.”
