Darling Bangs Eds Together

Guido has a feeling that history will judge Alistair Darling far kinder than any of the other bunker dwellers. With his new book coming out, apparently we will be hearing more about the Prime Mentalist and forces of hell, and the Sons of Brown too.  Darling barely disguises his dig at his Labour successors in the Indy:

“It is not enough to say this Government is not doing well and say it is damaging important things in this country. We have to show we have a vision of what Britain can be that is better. If we don’t establish in the public mind we are more competent [on the economy] than the Tories, then we won’t make any headway.”

Looks like Darling is as unimpressed with the blank sheet of paper as David.

    ED asks the people says:

    Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls asked Shropshire residents to help shape the new Labour manifesto during a visit to the county today.

    O Rigami says:

    I’ll be happy to turn his manifesto into used toilet paper.

    Saif says:

    So, will the next Labour manifesto be known as the Telford’s change?

    Number 10's Cunt says:

    I have to admit Alistair Darling is the one member of the previous admininstration that I don’t hold in contempt

    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    Yeah , I may not agree with him, but as a minster he carried himself well while the lunitic Gordon was in charge in the bunker, spec as he had people from his own side ( Yes i mean you Balls) Briefing against him.

    Bad Timing says:

    Tomorrow has been upgraded to “extreme Super-Moon”.

    Not a good to start a war with Libya on Armageddon day.

    Mike Litorus says:

    I don’t think you meant “cant” either…

  16. 16
    Ken is the leader of the GLC says:

    Alistair was about the only voice of reason in a Brown cabinet full of Hunts. Labour could have done much worse than ask him to be their leader.

    Mind you, as the man himself says, he ain’t done yet, so what odds can we get on a Darling leadership post 2015? Or at least Darling coming back to be Shadow Chancellor under Miliband the elder?

    Don’t get all misty eyed over Darling.
    He handed over the dosh to Northern Rock and flipped his second home four times in four years.
    He’s as big a self serving k unt as the rest of ‘em.

    Yup! Cptn Darling didn’t come out of the last mess with too much shit clinging to him

    Hugh Janus says:

    We may well hear more about the ‘forces of hell’ as the drip-feeding publicity machine cranks up. However, if McBust was such a useless bastard to work for – and the evidence supports this view overwhelmingly – then why did Darling and his fellow conspirators simply carry on as normal, even putting out silly statements of support from time to time? Those with any honour should have told him where to get off and then resigned.

    Sorry, we are of course talking about Liebour here, aren’t we? What a bunch of cowardly, self-serving scum, ever ready to put their own interests before all else. They could have stopped the imbecile from plundering our finances was his own demented ends, but instead just sat on their hands and pretended that he was a genius. This will remain part of their legacy for a very long time to come.

    He should be, you paid enough for it.

  40. 40
    Tax Payer says:

    Up to a point. He is collectively responsible for everything that happened, and directly responsible for some of it.

    If he disagreed that much, he should have resigned.

    Alistair D is the only decent MP in the Labour Party.

    Have the rebels also stopped? Will they be portrayed as the aggressors?

    If the West intervenes now will they be explicitly supporting the rebels, which is not allowed?

    Compare and Contrast:
    The UN debates and we prepare for yet another unwanted military adventure in the Middle East to save a load of misogynist arabs who’s response to a crisis is to shoot each other and throw their shoes around..
    While the poor Japanese suffer death, destruction of all their worldly goods and total devestation of parts of their country on an unprecedented scale with quiet dignity.
    Who should we be helping?

    Why do people vote for these twats?

  52. 52
    Tax Payer says:

    The Japanese are an advanced society and can well help themselves. We have offered any assistance they need.

    Libya is a failing state run by a madman. We are kind of tarred with our own brush on this, having intervened in Iraq on ‘principled’ grounds.

    Once you start picking and choosing between dictators this is the kind of mess you get in to.

  53. 53
    Tax Payer says:

    I agree. But won’t Gadaffi say “I’ve stopped to talk, why don’t you”? Especially if the West intervenes.

    He’s a wily old son of a dog.

  54. 54

    Gadaffi’s days are numbered. Goodbye Tyrant may you rot in hell!

    He’s a layber pahtee politician, they have no credibility. Just another middle class marxist wannabee chump. I would have had more respect for him if he had resigned or refused to serve under a lunatic like Brown. However,t just like all the other liars and cowards in that party they propped the loon up despite the evidence he had lost the plot.

    McMental didnt even have the decency to have a “happy finish” from some top filth such as Carole Caplin
    Blair may be a total Hoon but at least he had good taste when it came to getting a wank

    Just a small while ago everyone (including me) was taking the piss out of Cameron about his attempts to get a no-fly zone.

    Well It looks now like we were wrong and I am delighted to admit I was wrong. He has been a leading player in getting LEGAL global support for intervention and Gadaffi has (apperently) folded already.

    Now we need to find some way to have Gadaffi arrested and tried in the Hague. If this means using our military Jets (which DO still exist) then so be it.

    This is a legal, humanitarian action, with widespread Arab support to achieve a worthy end, based on truth.

    Well done Cameron!

    I can hardly believe it. If this ends well then Cameron and Sarkozy come out of this smelling of roses without a shot being fired. Procedure followed. Facts not manufactured to justify the cause.

    I must say I did not expect that and in time, if it proves to be the case, then I will be delighted to have been wrong.

    Still think it was a gamble. Certainly not a gamble I would have risked but fair play to him – he’s certainly ‘won’ this round.

    The two Neds will be apoplectic. Thwarted, by this..this public school boy.

    What Would The Tories Do? says:

    Looks like Darling is as unimpressed with the blank sheet of paper as David.

    When Labour were in government they always asked what the Tories would do for any given issue, and then proceeded to steal their ideas. I really don’t think the coalition would be interested in using Labours ideas, but it would be nice if Labour would keep quite until they had some.

  71. 71
    Grumpy Old Man says:

    For 3 years, the UK was a failing state run by a madman. No wonder there are elements of the Looting Parteh who still support Quadaffi.

    Mr Ned says:

    Gadsden has already committed loads of attrocities and war crimes for which he must be tried. The ‘rebels’ have not.

    They can now peacefully protest safe in the knowlege that the world is on the side of democratic self determination, instead of dictatorial tyranny.

    We do not have to bomb anything until Gadaffi shows the very first sign of moving any troops or military aircraft.

    No, history will not be kind. He’ll be considered as greedy and useless as the rest of the miserable New Labour government.

    Gooey Blob says:

    Quite simply, Labour AREN’T competent on the economy, or at least they seldom have been in all the years they have existed. As my grandmother, a lifelong Liberal, used to say: “Labour can’t run an economy”.

    One way to start to improve Labour’s image would be to remove the deeply unpopular Ed Balls from his post as shadow chancellor. I can’t see Ed Miliband having the nerve to do that though.

  87. 87
    Hugh Janus says:

    Because it was all within the rules – their rules.

    Could have lived without the idea of Darling banging anyone, frankly.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
