Brothers in Arms

Late yesterday evening by Piccadilly tube station a smug looking sharp suited man and a scruffy looking bald chap in shorts and a  red cycling jacket, made ready to head their separate ways.

Donning his red cap the slightly dishevelled looking chap unlocked his bike, before laughing and sharing a joke with his Underground bound companion. They then hugged like brothers in arms.

With the look on their smiling faces, Guido would love to know what it was Steve Hilton and  Rohan Silva were plotting over drinks last night…

      They were blue sky thinking and brainstorming on two wheeled man powered vehicular solutions while unlocking the potential of an information based thought economy occupying the shiny domed headspace.

      Or to put it another way….

      Silva said “Hello you big bald twat.” Hilton laughed and replied “On yer bike Silva.”

          Worthless Lib Dem pledge says:

          Perhaps they are considering how to spin it for Wavy Dave and Spineless Nick why the UK has to pay £7 billion in helping the EU bailout when we are not part of the Euro and on top of the £9 billion we already pay each year and still have not got back anything from the rebate that Blair gave away to secure his place as the EU president. With all the cut backs and loss of jobs (except CCHQ who become civil servants) it is difficult to believe Dave is going to keep to his promise to stick up for the UK in Europe.

          His promise of cleaning up politics does not look so good either, perhaps Hilton could put a spin on that as well. At the weekend it was reported he is going to water down the immigration cap promises as well. Nick’s unequivocal (no way not under any circumstance) promise not to increase tuition fees should take a little time to pass off especially as EU students DO NOT pay tuition fees in Scotland, 1,000 immigrants enter the country each day under a student visa and our taxpaying citizens are being shafted to pay for the education of our competitors. I think a little bit of national interest would not go amiss in helping our economy for the future.

          They talk about terrorism in isolation of immigration and asylum seekers, we are now going to foot the bill for millions of pounds in compensation to suspected terrorists that should not have been allowed here in the first place. Mean while Dave bends over his desk for Obama to poke him a little bit more.

          Overall, it is very hard to accept that Wavy Dave and his sidekick are performing far worse than the loathed McSlug.

          Hilton has his work cut out because Blair’s spin machine kept him above suspicion for years- Hilton is on his back foot already because the public are alive to the worthless pledges of Dave and Nick, they simply can not be trusted.

    • 12
      Mr Ned says:

      Perhaps they are chatting about how clever the coalition is to spend millions of pounds to cover up the war-crimes of former Labour Ministers.

      Spending billions in giving hush-money to former suspected terrorists to protect their torturing chums in labour, ooooh how clever!

      There should have been a full public inquiry. Bush has admitted and boasts in his book that he authorised “enhanced interrogation techniques” which have been defined as torture.

      WTF? Why are the coalition covering up their (alleged) opponent’s war crimes?

      That is yet ANOTHER way that the coalition has seriously fucked up in their judgement.

          Worthless Lib Dem pledge says:

          I don’t think they have a choice, they voted for the war and knew the techniques the US were using. Our security services were aware why these people were taken and why. Dave Miliband clearly knew what the US were up to, this was even commented upon by Guido why he apologised. Why are the coalition still allowing dubious people from this part of the world asylum?? Why are they allowing them to come here under a student visa?? Socialist Cable has now persuaded Wavy Dave to reduce the cap on the number immigrants from outside the EU. At the Chilcott Inquiry the head of MI5 reported that the Iraq war considerably increased home grown terrorists and her budget had to be increased by a multiple of four. The policies of the coalition have all the potential for another good own goal.

          Blair needs to be investigated, charged and prosecuted. His assets seized and given to the wounded and widows of the war. A loathsome person who has walked away while earning a fortune on the back of his former position which has cost the UK untold damage in lives, its reputation and financially.

          “It sucks, but better than the above non? Pay them off, move on.”

          Not at all. They committed serious crimes in OUR names. Those crimes have caused people to return to the middle east and become terrorists, leaving us LESS safe.

          These crimes should be prosecuted.

          • Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? says:

            You assume that these crimes have stopped.

          • Steve Miliband says:

            Like it or not, they were freed from detention in Guantanamo.
            They seemingly do not have enough evidence to prosecute them.
            I am just saying rather than have 60 lawyers etc trying to defend the Intelligence service against complicitness of torture, and probably having to publicise information they would rather be kept secret, I think it is better to pay them off, as much as I dislike it

        To be honest i think that is probably a sensible move, it will save the taxpayer millions, allow the security services to get on with the job they are pais to do and shut the terrorists up.

        Now collapsing under pressure from brussels bailing out Ireland and contributing even more to the European Gravy train is disgraceful. I do not know one Conservative voter who will not be voting UKIP next time.

          Mr Ned says:

          Can you point to a single court judgement, or freely given confession, that shows these people to be terrorists?


          We were complicit in torturing innocent people. That should NOT be covered up.

          If our authorities can buy their way out of complicity in the torture of these people, they can torture you too.

          • The afghanistan University of hands on terror studies says:

            Get real NED these terrorists were picked up attending terrorist school in stan and they weren’t doing airy fairy philosophy they were doing practical studies.

            Indded Mr Ned,

            They were all just visiting their cousins wedding. In a warzone. And an AK47 is a must have item at all Muslim weddings in all the Shitistans.

            Quite right to trust these fellows Ned, & not at all breathtakingly naive.

          • Mr Ned says:

            Sophie, you are buying into an insidious bastardisation of our judicial traditions. These people have not been found guilty in a court of law anywhere in the world.

            If they are terrorists, try them in court, if a Jury finds them guilty, then string them up. Their is NO evidence that these people are terrorists. If there is, try them in court!

            It is simply wrong to kidnap people, fly them to another country, torture them and then pay them off when it is later discovered that they have been tortured to try to extract a confession to bullshit plans which were only invented by other people who were being tortured into making those confessions.

            We cannot take ANYTHING the authorities say on terrorism at face value. There have been too many people tortured into too many lies to cover up too much bullshit.

            You believe these people were at terrorist training camps? WHY? Because the same mainstream media willingly reported the same lies told to them by the same establishment that was torturing false confessions out of innocent people?

            You cannot believe a word that has been reported by the media about the war-on-terror.

          • AC1 says:

            Neither have other POWs

          • Cynical Old Man says:

            Mr. Ned, being a fair minded soul I would love to give these people the benefit of the doubt. However, I find I cannot do that because these “innocent” people have NEVER given satisfactory answers or believable excuses as to why they were in Afghanistan during a time of conflict. Binyam Mohammed persists with his quite breathtaking excuse that he was there in order to shake off his drug habit – and if you believe that you would believe the moon is made of green cheese.

            Some of these “innocents” have even been proven to have attended terrorist training camps.

            I think what it does show is that the lawyers working for these people (it’s always the same shysters) have more than seeing justice is done on their agendas.

          • Cynical Old Man says:

            Mr.Ned, you obviously believe it’s only western governments and media tell lies. Whilst in a lot of respects I can agree with you up to a point, don’t forget terrorists are not only trained to kill civillians but also to lie convincingly (or in Binyam Mohammed’s case, not so convincingly) when interrogated. Don’t forget, it’s not only guns and bombs that win wars, it’s also sowing the seeds of confusion and suspicion among your enemies that break down the will to win.

            Al Quaeda know the West is soft and there exist many useful idiots with agendas of their own that will only too willingly assist them to undermine democracy.

        Dave seems to be doing quite well out of this democracy lark. Blasé to the point of idiocy about the nation’s horrendous budget deficit, let alone the £4.8trillion debt which doesn’t even appear on his radar, he prattles around telling the odd blatant lie about guaranteeing “Britain’s sovereignty” as parliament’s responsibilities are hoovered-up by Brussels/Strasbourg and our future sinks beneath the waves of Labour’s ocean of debt. Which doesn’t seem to bother Happy Clappy Dave, at all.

          • Tessa Tickles says:

          • Dave said he had negotiated a FUL opt out. So we won't be paying. It's written on cast-iron says:

            Mr Cameron also said, although final decisions were not taken this week, EU leaders had endorsed a “full British opt out” for the UK on strengthened enforcement measures for EU states – aimed at avoiding another financial crisis in the eurozone.

            He said eurozone countries would simply formalise arrangements to bail each other out in a crisis – something that would protect British taxpayers


          • jgm2 says:

            From your link…

            “I am sure they [EU leaders] are good for their word.” A spokesman for EU budget commissioner Janusz Lewandowski said the final rise was still uncertain.

            That’s probably what Bl*ir thought when he handed back Maggies rebate. On the ‘understanding’ he’d be made president of the EU.

            Mr Cameron also said, although final decisions were not taken this week, EU leaders had endorsed a “full British opt out” for the UK on strengthened enforcement measures for EU states

            So the decision to allow a UK opt-out wasn’t actually taken. So we’ll be finding we haven’t ‘opted-out’ at all and, oh, by the way, here’s the bill for Greece an Ireland. There’ll be another one along in a minute for Portugal and Spain. Remember Dave, ‘All in this together’.

          • Tessa Tickles says:

            Phew! That’s a relief!

            “Asked if he could guarantee that the budget would not rise by more than the 2.9% as agreed with the other leaders, Mr Cameron said: “I am sure they are good for their word.””

            Yeah, right Dave. No politician I can think of has ever gone back on a cast iron promise.

        The young prince – or his brother, can’t remember which – uses helicopters as his personal taxi to go for a beer right at the time the previous ‘government’ was dragging the country to bankrupcy.

        Why? because he happened to be bred in the royal stable.

        Royalty is just as greedy and wasteful as our parliament of ‘honourable members’.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
