Asatoband

Ever wondered how David Miliband miraculously has time to blog while he is out and about sewing up the leadership vote. Well he doesn’t:

A little look at the RSS feed for the blog shows us who the real blogger is…

UPDATE: Jess loyally claims that David writes absolutely everything and it’s just her job to put things up. So what do his speech writers do?

    This is ground-breaking stuff.

    Guido on the case, once again getting to the bottom of the seedy underbelly of political life and prising open another can of worms.

    I think this deserves a wider investigation. Is it a widespread practice for politicians to delegate to their staff? Does it cross the political divide?

    What a total waste of a read this was. Hardly a scandal is it that David Miliband nor any other politician are able to actually sit there at a computer and do their blogs. Just because they’re uploaded etc by somebody else it doesn’t mean that they aren’t written by the politician themselves.

    Oh, by the way, get a life!

    O/T,
    I see that the nice new government ( hurrah ) as opposed to the nasty old government ( hiss ) has decided that it needs some advice on safeguarding vulnerable children.
    They have racked their brains and come up with the world renowned “expert” Sharon Shoesmith of baby P notoriety, to give them that advice.

    When Millibananas ‘wins’, Balls will still be there. So we get a nicely split Labour: Milly’s Bliarists who recognise the Berlin Wall has fallen, and Balls’ statists who don’t.

    Labour’s only hope is to ditch both Bliarism (and with Milly’s history that will be difficult), and statism (bully boy Balls makes that difficult too), re-inventing themselves as the localist working class movement of the co-ops and the friendly societies. We shall see.

    The Milibandwagon appears to consist of brainless celebrities with a supporting cast of minions who actually have the brains and are capable of coherent thought.

    Where it all goes wrong is when the subterfuge succeeds in getting the brainless celebrity elected and everyone discovers that the star of the show is incapable of writing his own lines and is a disaster in office.

    Practical and pragmatic intelligence and socialism are alien to each other; that is why socialist politicians are brainless and their speeches have to be written by paid wordsmiths who will write anything for a shilling.

    That’s not strictly speaking correct, comrade.

    The plan was to chain everyone to bollards, which would be located in your work-detail compounds so none of you could stray from the glorious experience of working in fields, mines, quarries etc etc.

    There were plans to let you all move indoors at night during the winter, subject to there being some accommodation left after it had been assigned to immigrants.

    The wars were necessary. Afghanistan was governed by tribes that had legalised r-ape within marriage. Our troops went in, a few hundred died, and they’ve replaced that government with a new government that has legalised r-ape within marriage.

    So lets get this straight, twenty rednecks in Florida, who none had heard of a week or so ago, are going to get our troops killed and act as a recruiter for the Isl*mists?
    I dont think so, what will certainly act as a generator for that scenario, is the entire MSM giving it wall to wall world coverage and the President of the USA posturing around as if these twenty or so chancers are somehow going to start world war three.
    Folks, the fanatics in Isl*m need no excuse to try and kill the K*ffar or die trying.
    As for the extremists enablers around the Isl*mic world, well their biggest source of information to stoke up any manufactured rage, is the MSM itself, beaming the non event around the world 24/7.
    It’s as if they WANT a violent reaction and the bigger the better as far as the MSM are concerned.

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.”
