        Is this the same “confusion” now apparently rampant in the Police which led to them using unlicensed firearms recently ?

          jgm2 says:

          Don’t know what they’re playing at classifying tazers as ‘firearms’. I s’pose the risk is that when tazered you’ll collapse and crack your skull on the pavement but since the police can achieve the same results by tossing you down the stair, cracking you over the skull with their baton or simply sneaking up behind you and shoving you into the kerb then I don’t see why they need to declare a tazer as a ‘firearm’.

          Well, apart from stopping the rest of us from buying them for self-defence.

          I’m sure no-one from PC-Force will be arrested for using an unlicensed firearm.

          However, for the lower proles and non-party members there’s a minimum 5 years jail sentence.

        I Hate Thick Pigs.. says:

        That reminds me of an incident that happened to a friend of mine a year so ago, AC1.

        He was being hassled by a thicko pig and called him a ‘nazi’. The thicko pig said, ‘I’ll charge you with racial abuse!’.

        My friend said, ‘Fine-Nazism is a political philosophy and NOT an ethnicity!’

        His fellow officers laughed at this and the thicko pig finally backed down.

        It makes one question the educational standards of the police constables recruited these days.

          After 13 years of Education x3, you can’t blame the average trainee plod for not having a clue the Fuzz should introduce a basic education course for every trainee plod. At least if would give the young man a chance against the average loud-mouth young socialist.

          • AC1 says:

            Maybe there shouldn’t be a law that makes the Police have to decide if abuse is in a unscientific but legally prohibited category (Race).

    The B Team

    In 2010, a crap commando unit was sent to Victoria Street by a party for an election they didn’t win. These mopes loved being in a maximum security stockade. Today, still wanting to be the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, if the decent people who have got proper jobs or would only work for David Miliband won’t return your calls, and if you can’t find anyone else, maybe you can hire… The B-Team.

          • jgm2 says:

            Brown never gave anybody a tax giveaway in his miserable life. He just borrowed money to give away. And increased taxes.


          • Ireland 2.0 says:

            He’ll have something in common with Dave then, as Dave IS going to increase taxes and even Osborne’s optimistic predictions till 2015 showed little to no wiggle room for a tax giveaway unless he wants to start borrowing again.


          • jgm2 says:

            I’m not condoning it. I’m not saying it will be economically justifiable. I’m just saying that, for purely political purposes, a certain headline grabbing amount of cash will be made available to grease the election wheels in the T*ries favour.

            Perhaps not as much as the 200bn quid Br*wn printed last year just to pay the public sector. Probably more like 1/10th of that to knock a couple of pence off the basic rate. But I think you’d be a fool to bet against it.


          • spend spend spend says:

            I’m not betting against it but it proves Dave is no better the Brown when the chips are down and all the fiscal responsibility rhetoric will be proved to be complete bullshit

        It depends on how long LD will stay or split. MPs like to be re-elected, LD MPs are mainly there due to Labour supporters tactically voting to keep conservatives off; LD MPs know this.

          Great. So the tactical voters can go and vote Labour and the LibDem MP’s will turn into Tory MPs.

          As long as they don’t turn into Labour MPs then the UK is safe from their idiocy.


        • 163

          One thing the partisan lickspittles have overlooked is there is no clear exit strategy to ‘decouple’ both Parties cleanly.

          The idea that they will peacefully coexist right up until 6 weeks before the election and then they are suddely two different Parties sharing acclaim/blame fairly and good naturedly is hilariously naive.

          And elections start loooong before the official campaign gets underway.

    She needs a sort of non-job like Prescott was given after his Transport tenure gridlocked the roads.

    An office and a chair with a desk with locked drawers and no key and a phone that isn’t plugged in and an upright back of a cereal box with ‘computer’ written on it and some drawn on buttons. Spray some silly string around the place to look like wires and cables.
    Some crayons in a pot and some decent blank paper that she can be told is an ‘actual white paper’ for her to draft.

    But minister for what? Has to sound convincing but keep her far away from real shadow cabinet level appointees.

    Minister for songs?
    Minister for Marxism?
    Junior Secretary to the mail room?

    Red Ed's Big Speech says:

    I have decided to engage constructively with the government on the matter of the deficit and the nation’s debt.

    All Labour Party propaganda about nasty Tory Cuts versus nice Labour “investment” will cease forthwith in the interest of national harmony.

    We will help the government to remove the straitjacket that Labour has placed over the British people over the last 13 years.

    I also call for an end to the vile class hatred and envy of wealth that dominates my party and all its utterances – with immediate effect.

    Labour shall in future use rational debate in political discussion and will abandon all name-calling, fear-mongering, smearing, and the launching of fancy-sounding ineffective ‘plans’ and ‘programmes’.

    We will cease using the meaningless term ‘progressive’, and instead use the correct term ‘socialist’.

    The use of lies will be abandoned and all Labour Party members will in future tell the truth.

    That just about covers it all. Thank you.

“The Englishman is a rabid nationalist. They are perhaps the most nationalist people in the world.”

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
