Nutroots Morning Report

Co-conspirators from inside TUC HQ have been reporting back from Netroots UK. Undeniably a good turnout for the event, the subsidised £5 ticket price including lunch and booze clearly worked as an enticement.

The speeches from Sunder Katwala of the Fabians and Clifford Singer of MyDavidCameron fame where well received. Sunder cited polling evidence of the cuts losing popular support as a sign the left are winning, Clifford gave a humorous talk which went down well claiming that the Daily Mail was co-opted into spreading UK Uncut’s message by the nature of their campaign.

Nigel Stanley, Head of Campaigns at the TUC, was surprisingly candid, admitting that the “Coalition’s narratives of bloated public sector and wasteful welfare are strong” and that the “unions are seen as vested producer interests (with gold-plated pensions)” – a backhanded compliment to the success of the Taxpayers’ Alliance campaigning. Does have the strategic campaigning advantage of being true…

Polly Toynbee went down less well, Sunny Hundal in the chair allowed her to ramble on for too long and the audience – judging by the Twitter reaction – was not impressed with her acceptance of the fact of the cuts – the audience wants to fight to stop the cuts, she took comfort from the fact that they will damage the popularity of the government. A realpolitik stance that was far too defeatist for left-wingers in the audience.

Tom Watson went down badly with his “Comrades” opening line which is a bit too old school “scary” for the kids and his plea for everyone to join Labour brought the inevitable left-wing reaction from Maeve Mckeown raging against Labour over Iraq, tuition fees and the usual Blairite crimes. Lefties love ranting against Labour sell-outs…

Guido managed to get a mention from the floor – apparently this blog shaped how the election turned out – Sunder reckoned Guido was too extremist and that left-wing blogs have more “range and depth”. In other words they are more boring.

The New Statesman’s Laurie Penny summarised the morning thus:

    Reflecting further on this I think the left wing blogosphere is less successful is that it is so unremittingly humourless – presumably because the average lefty is humourless and they are all too frightened of offending minorities or being seen to be mean to one of their “special interest groups”.

    Right wing / Libertarian blogs tend to carry more humorous items whether it be specifically to entertain or a humorous angle on a serious topic. BTL tends to be the same – whole this site attracts its fair share of windowlickers there are a lot of amusing and witty posts particularly when compared to the self regarding tedium posted on somewhere like Labourlist.

    I expect this little gathering to produce no discernible improvement in left wing blogs because the authors themselves won’t change in outlook

      That is a terrible attitude to take. How is it possible to smile when there are millions of children below an arbitrary poverty line? How can you laugh when some of the hardest working comrades in the diversity departments of our councils only received a 5% pay rise last year, and may get as little as 3.8% this year.

      How could you dare to consider that discussion of Marxist-Socio-economic- hydrogenous-waffle theory might be a topic for hilarity.

      Being a left winger is a full time occupation. There is no time for humour when the imperialist chains of oppression enslave our former colonial comrades.

      Do you not remember Gordon the Great looking completely bemused at PMQ’swhen the Ascroftonian-Bankerist Elite burst into laughter at his prediction for 0% growth? There was nothing funny about it. There has indeed been 0% growth. And negative 0% growth too.

      Gordon was right to look as surprised as when a headmaster encounters unexpected outbursts of mirth from an assembly hall, just because he is introducing the new teacher “Mr Mudderfudder.”

      Socialism is a serious, dry, deep and pointless business. Do not try and change that.

    It’s always the same: try to present themselves in a way that will “sell”.

    We here, though, are less likely to forget the four universal characteristics of the Left:

    1. theft (money, rights, liberties)
    2. dictatorship (thousands of new rules, laws and offences, and a bureaucracy of jobsworths to enforce them)
    3. dishonesty (all of Labour is a succession of lies, with seeming “truths” scattered among the lies to afford apparent validity)
    4. mass murder (either directly as in the former USSR, Zimbabwe, China or wherever), or indirectly via the New World Order agenda including enforcing Mercury-laden ‘flu jabs on pain of imprisonment).

    Remember that *all* Lefties effectively support all of this, even if they wouldn’t admit to it in public.

    For the record, MPs were unpaid until the radical Liberal chancellor David Lloyd George found them £400 a year in 1910, the annus mirabilis of progressive taxation when LG faced down the Lords. According to the National Archives ready-reckoner, that £400 is worth £22,824 today – so MPs on £65,738 have achieved a steady real-terms pay rise.

        I can now no longer use any sort of manure in my garden and the soil is not as productive as it was — it’s been poisoned. Strange that this problem should occur just when many home-grown and allotment gardeners were becoming independent of supermarket produce.

        The only way you’d stop labour from getting in again in 2015 would be to put the BBC in the bin right now, and educate/inform people properly instead of just filling their heads with propaganda that never bears scrutiny. But that’s not going to happen.

    I especially “like” it when they start denoucing “free market” people for “bailing out the banks “.

    We spent DECADES attacking the support for monetary expansion (i.e. for loans that were from credit money expansion – not from real savings), but the profits of such activity were exactly what Mr Brown (like so many others) depended on for tax revenue to fund his wild spending.

    So of course he (the big government people) supported bank bailouts – free market people OPPOSED bank bailouts (pity none of the political parties is led by free market people).

    And the present government is now (like the official left) demanding that banks “start lending again”.

All those LibDems threatening to walk away from the Coalition and force an election if their policies are watered down or ignored I say let ‘em…do Turkeys vote for Xmas ?? They’re tied in for better or worse
      “Dave” needs to grow some and stop pandering to LibDems on control orders;Eu and AV referendum(which I predict will be a resounding “No” Vote).

      And so what if Labour win any General Election(They are no doubt crapping themselves at the thought though as Miliband and Johnson have even less ideas than “Dave” and Osbourne for dealing with the mess that Brown left behind)

      “Dave” has taken the Tory core vote for granted for far too long…..to quote a phrase of his..there are “red lines” which will not be crossed and he is getting dangerously close to them for a lot of the party and let’s not hear this bollocks about “Nobody won the election !”as an excuse for reneging on manifesto promises…if as he says “The EU vote is a “fucking car crash” then “Dave” has only himself to blame as Bernard Jenkins succinctly puts it in the following article

    MAD FRANKIE HADDOCK son of COD says:

    Cameron has just said people should stop speculating on what bankers will get in bonuses
    he fully expects the banks to follow what the gov told them
    Listen you stupid tit
    the head of rbs is going to get £2.5,000 000 on top of his £4.5,000,000 salary
    that bank is 87% owned by us the taxpayer
    so 87p in every pound he gets belongs to the taxpayer !
    do something about it you clueless c*nt
    they can pay whatever bonuses they want once they have paid back every penny they have taken from us
    we are being screwed by the government and the fuckin banks

      What a completely unconvincing twat David Cameron really is. He’s got no ideas and indeed not a clue as to the REAL issues facing people today. He even believes (or so he says) that the coalition is working…Wait until Thursday in Oldham for the real truth I say!…,.,Now where’s that screen cleaner?

    David Cameron and George Osborne are to launch an assault this week on workers’ rights.

    The “charter” to help bosses create jobs includes a review to help firms combat rising staff sickness bills and is expected to double to two years the time staff must be employed before they can claim unfair dismissal.

    The move follows warnings the Government’s £81 billion cuts will put up to a million people on the dole.

    Mr Cameron sparked outrage last night after telling Guido fawkes his taxes “are going to educate my children and your boss’s children”. The PM was branded an “out-of-touch snob” by Guido Fawkes over his comment.

    thick as thieves says:

    How’s this for starters

    Bruce, an Australian who was working on contract for 3 months in Dublin was drinking in the Donoghue pub in Merrion Row when he gets a call on his mobile phone.
    He hangs up, grinning from ear to ear, orders a round of drinks for everyone in the bar, because he announces his wife, back, home has just produced a typical baby boy weighing 25 pounds.
    Nobody can believe that any baby can weigh in at 25 pounds, but Bruce just shrugs, “That’s about average in Oz. Like I said, my boy is a typical Australian baby boy.”
    Congratulations showered him from all around and many exclamations were heard. One woman even fainted due to sympathy pains.
    Two weeks later Bruce returns to the bar.
    Greg, the bartender says “You’re the father of that typical Australian baby that weighed 25 pounds at birth. Everybody’s been having bets about how big he’d be in 2 weeks, we were going to call you. So how much does he weigh now?”
    The proud father answers “17 pounds”
    Greg is puzzled and concerned. “What happened? He weighed 25 pounds the day he was born.”
    Bruce takes a long s-l-o-w swig from his beer, wipes his lips on his shirt sleeve, leans onto the bar and proudly says …………..
    “Had him circumcised mate”

      Why do Australian men finish so quickly when making love (as short a time as they remain at the crease)?

      Coz they can’t wait to get down the pub and brag about it to their mates.
