    Another Engineer says:

    Is that the same sense as ‘Housewives favourite’?

    Sounds like either
    a) someone knows the result and is trying to gain financially
    b) someone was manipulating the odds

    Send in Yates of the Yard…

    Aren’t LieBore about to announce their preferred candidate for Mayor of London today???

    Red Ken or Lamb-Oona?

    The LibDems are still agonising about Lembit Cocoa-the-clown Opik!!

    Well, anyone would!

    Whilst neither fo them could be described as handsome chaps in the conventional mould, Ed really does look like a refugee from Tony Hart’s Plastecine waste bin.

    Ed the Red “Che” Millitwat as Prosident I say

    He is till in short trousers having learnt his economics from Adolphe…and Blinky Balls and the Gurning Goon…

    Dont’ forget that Ed the Red was “Chairman” of Brown’s Council of Economic Advisers when they established “Light touch” regulation that caused the financial meltdown…

    We should call them the three “Light Touch brothers”…

    What incompetent, drivelling fools…

    Sir Barrington Minge says:

    But there again, who actually gives a shit?

    The Government just needs to carry on as it is and ignore the labour party…seems to work quite well.

    Hell are you just trying to make people sick,I have to go now and somehow wash my mind of that Abbott baywatch thing.

    The Court of Public Opinion says:

    Exactly. Scousers may be a close second behind MP’s in the detestable stakes, but on last nights QT they had it spot on about the libdems being finished after the coalition.

    So now liebour has been obliterated that just leaves the tories free to run rampage by default, not merit.

    Is Lembit Toolkit really in the running for the Limp Dems ?

    Between Boris, Lembit and Oooona this is going to descend into a Caligulan farce…

    All we will need is free sex games at Wembley Stadium to amume the plebs…

    Excellent. May Labour elect this low hanging fruit. His only qualification

    Mr Opik, who lost his Montgomeryshire seat in May’s General Election, said his “left-wing, libertarian agenda accords with the mood of London”.

    What has half of Bangladesh and Somalia got in common with a welsh stand-up comedian???

    Teamsters friends Unite Trade Union are playing the betting market like good speculators…

    They have our money to burn as well from the Trade Union Modernisation/Manipulation Fund…

    Labour doing what it always does when it loses power...lurch to the left says:

    Never underestimated the tendency of the Labour Party to fight the wrong battle at the wrong time with the wrong leader,If “Red Ed” is elected and starts to move the party towards the left to placate his union paymasters Labour could be out of office for the next decade.

    The Coalition may be unpopular with some of the electorate but deep down the public know that the cuts are a necessary evil to correct the profligacy of the last Labour Government and Brown.In 2015 we could be seeing the fruits of that with the economy on the up,unemployment down and the deficit almost wiped out.It shouldn’t be forgotten either that in 2015 it will be the Tories/LibDems who control the government machine and that labour will be on the back foot if Cameron/Osborne’s Gamble with the public finances have paid off. If it hasn’t then who knows but even then it’s unlikely a Labour Party with left wing policies will be electable

    Scouse Twat says:

    It was scouser’s gave everyone a free weekend in their home when the national had a false start. Plenty of them have give their lives in the stan so arse holes like you can come on sites like this and say what you want. scouser’s maybe violent fucks when they need to be but if it wasn’t for violent twats fags like you would never sleep in peace.

    The whole of Europe, North America and Asia is moving sharply to the Right and even the Extreme Right..this is a worldwide sea change…

    The Left no longer has any reason to exist…especially in its socialist or neo-socilaist form…

    But Zanu have always been the home of lost causes…

    Engineer says:

    The polls are irrelevant for the time being. We’re barely five months into a new government, so they aren’t about to pack up any time soon. They are intending a five year term, they say, so the polls only really become relevant in about three-and-a-half years.

    Some of the population are being whipped into a panic over cuts. If it turns out that cuts are not as bad as some are making out (there won’t be any nurses sacked, for example – NHS budgets are ringfenced) then the polls might move the other way. Who knows?

    The first thing to get cut in any council budget is cold weather protection such as gritting etc. If it is a cold hard winter then last years headlines about the snow willl be eclipsed very quickly.

    Opik has no political ideals or policies, that’s how he lost one of the LibDems safest seats.

    He is more suited to the socialists who court celebrities and film stars, which is pretty much what their tattooed, ring-tone buying supporters do.

    Also known as the honeymoon period.

    There are no elections next year. It’s all a trick of the light.

    Politicians never pay attention to the Polls.

    Like fuck they don’t.

    And the public will all be pleasantly surprised by the cuts and tax rises.

    That’ll happen.

    Oh I think he does….

    It will eat at him for the rest of his life that he had a chance to be PM and blew it.

    Given how close the election was, does anybody doubt that with Brown out of the way, Miliband could have formed a coalition with the Lib Dems? He could be PM today, but his lack of courage screwed him.

    And no amount of cash will change that.

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.”
