1% of Tory Election Expenditure Went on Bambi Killing

Going through the £16 million the Tories spent on the election Guido had to laugh when he came across a bill for nearly £30,000 for a dinner at Annabel’s in the Tories’ declared election expenditure, but Return Three is the gift that just keeps giving:

The Carphone Warehouse boss and intriguing donor David Ross donated £40,000 for “shooting” as an auction prize at a fund-raising dinner and billionaire Richard Caring donated another £140,000 worth of shooting. As they were given away as auction prizes the cost had to be factored into notional election spending. Of the total £16,682,874 the Tories spent, some 1% on this:

Brings a tear to your eye…

    What’s the problem with a good old fashioned hunt? It was to give one practice for shooting oiks and prollies.

    The New Statesman can’t get over the Lib dems going off with the Tories.
    Why? Why , don’t you like us..We’re the Labour party..the party of the left..You’re Liberals..you MUST love us?

    A transcript from Gordon and Nick’s own speed dating session.

    Clegg says ..
    “Want to know why we Lib Dems don’t like you? Do you really want to know..”

    Brown..
    “Yeah..I mean we’re all progressive and like, equality and stuff..and green..wow ..so green..”

    “OK..You wanted it. You are the worst party we know. You shafted Paddy Ashdown when you no longer needed his help. You did over the voters on boundary changes and electoral reform. You ponce about, saying you are the party of peace and free love and CND, like some ageing,mind-melted hippy, yet you went around starting a ton of wars and then tried to pretend that they would have happened anyway, and it wasn’t really your fault. You get all high and mighty about everyone going to university, yet allowed their degrees to become so dumbed down that now a 2:2 is like an NVQ. Except it costs about £10k to get. You like to say “Oh..we are SOOOO Liberal, yet you wanted to imprison people for 90 days without trial. Why? To make you look tough. That was the only reason. Macho big dickery bullshit.

    You pay for nothing. You sponge off the taxpayers using the ‘communications allowance’ and the “Union modernisation fund” to pay for your campaigns. You denied..flat denied..on the bible, hand on heart, on the eyes of my children,..denied there was a Blair/Brown rift and then all rushed to print books about how dysfunctional those two were.

    You..you..pretend to be all about ‘working class’ and ‘manufacturing’ yet how many coal mines did you re-open? How many..Can’t quite hear you…was it NONE!
    Where’s ROVER.. that’s the new kids book. Look at the pictures of this showroom kids and see if you can see ROVER GROUP that Labour promised..before an election mind.. Where’s ROVER ..In fucking India ..that’s where!
    You go about best for Britain yet you allowed 3m -5m? maybe 10 million, who the hell knows..No one kept a record.., 10 million migrant workers into the country.. British jobs for British workers? Like Cadbury’s ..
    Here poor people..why not sit on the dole? if you don’t I’ll take away you’re 10p tax threshold just to score a days worth of media headlines for my own image.
    Working class ..yeah right. like LORD KINNOCK..LORD PRESCOTT. You are the party of hypocrisy.

    And where the hell has my Post office gone? And where’s the Library? And where’s the jobs you promised? Jobs that aren’t tapping data onto a government website that no right minded f*cker is ever going to read. Maybe I’ll go to the the new Library-Post-Pub see if they’ve any jobs.. Aww.. what do you know. Smoking ban has shut them all down.
    Where’s the cafe culture you promised ?
    24 hour binge drinking..I can see that.
    Did you seriously think that after 11pm teenagers were going to sit around ordering cappuccinos? What ponce thought this would be a great recipe for success..ever cheaper beers and longer hours to drink them in. Never mind. Stick 42 million CCTV cameras on poles and that will stop crime. Or not.. but at least you can watch the whole show from a control room. Rrecord it for ITV.. make a few quid to help clean up the f*ckin shambles you made of law and order. An extra 3,300 criminal offences from the ‘progressive’ party. And none of them could get you into jail. You have to not only kill someone but cut off their ears and stick them over your own and film it all on youtube before a magistrate will even look at the case.

    And your pretence at being green? Filling a field with useless windmills isn’t being green. Its being a dick.
    “Oh 80% of our energy will be green by 2040″
    Really? How’s that going to happen? Carbon capture? A technology that doesn’t even exist is going to sort it out? Why not dilithium crystals or sonic screwdriver power..You dumbass.
    Any dick head can say 1 million new homes will be built. Oh i forget..a dick head did say that. You did. That and a laptop for every home. You announced that four times. And 20 meg broadband..Where is this stuff Gordon? Still in your ‘dividing lines’ scrambled brain.
    After 12 years of not building any houses ..suddenly it was the new plan to win votes. Like AV..like no cuts…Lets not even go onto health and the chronic overspending on administrators and the pointless bureaucracy or MRSA, Bird flu hysteria, cancer rates.. the end of GP out of hours…

    And the economy.. The number one failure of ‘responsible government’. You..you personally McMental..you set up a regulatory system that envisaged no black clouds. Just perpetual sunny days..forever.The result?..The biggest deficit in the history of the nation. And then you had the brazen balls to say it was Obama’s fault?

    WE HATE YOU LABOUR.
    WE HATE YOU FOR BEING A LYING,DUPLICITOUS,SLEAZY, CORRUPT,BARREN,SELF-SERVING,TRIBAL, WAR OBSESSED, DEFICIT CREATING,RIGHTS ROBBING, CHEATING,CABAL RIDDEN, PROMISE BREAKING,TWO FACED, SPINNING BUNCH OF CROOKS.

    And you know what else. You personally are boring. Really,really boring. And you smell.

    And Clegg gets up and leaves.

    Gordon’s Nokia rings. “How’d it go?” asks Mandy.
    “Hmmm.. Well..up & down. But better than I thought it would..”
