Cashing In On Kipping Ken

Guido is gutted he missed the 16/1 Ladbrokes were offering on old Ken not making it through the speech without a bit of shut-eye.

      Ampers says:

      You’re so right, I dropped off on the job yesterday and my Mistre4ss was a little upset.

      Labour just don’t seem to understand the only way we can regain our position in the world is by improving business. Business create real jobs for real people. Labour create made up jobs that shuffle paper rather than produce anything.

      Leaving aside that it was Labours dismal record of finance that created this mess, it was their creating people dependent on the state which have, in the long run ruined their lives.

      Personally I thought it was a good budget for business taking into consideration the mess we are in and found Ed Milliband’s reply rather lacking in substance. A load of insults but nothing to show how he could do things better.

      I am not accusing Labour in any way of subterfuge. They honestly believe their way is right. It is this I find so sad as they are surely reasonably intelligent people?

        Its a shame that Miliband’s pre written budget response was so pre written.
        Its supposed to be the most difficult thing an opposition leader has to do. Respond to a budget statement off the cuff.

        Of course they always have it 90% written in advance. Just that its not normally so obviously 90% written in advance. Or in this case, 100%.

        Ampers says:

        I meant Mistress! I think the 4 crept in as she is number four.

  2. 2
    Old Tory Bigot says:

    One Ken Clarke is worth 1000 wee Dougies, asleep or not.

  3. 3
    Hew Dunnit says:

    Ken probably talks more sense in his sleep than Wee Dougie does when he’s wide awake.

      I want to see McDoom make a twat of himself again says:

      A lobotomised monkey high on crack talks more sense than Wee Dougie.

  4. 4
    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    Did he clear that tweet with the two Eds?

  5. 5
    Kenny Clarke says:

    I had a nice big cooked breakfast this morning. Combined with the warmth of the chamber, I felt very sleepy.

      Fa Kin Su Pah says:

      He’d only get my vote if he kicked
      off his hush puppies, lit up a hamlet
      and then entertained everyone with a vigorous fart

      Grumpy Old Man says:

      Nothing to do with 2 pints and a sandwich just before PMQ’s.

    gildedtumbril says:

    Ladrokes is a strange bank. It takes a shedload of money in but only pays out a wheelie binful.
    Toad of toad hall, the BAT king is a fat, ugly, full of shite tosser.He can stick his hush puppies where eva braun, the wee scots jessie, late of the Downing Street Bunker, and now the Falkirk Absentee used to keep his moral compass.

  7. 8
    I want to see McDoom make a twat of himself again says:

    Is Brown going to make his speech today or did Labour lean on him enough to stay away? They shouldn’t spoil our fun. Let the fat c unt speak.

  8. 9
    Righty Right Wing (Mrs) says:

    I missed the Budget myself – by how much is Piers Fletcher Dervish reducing our EU contributions by?

    DFID axed?

    30p off fuel duty?

    Income tax reduced to help growth?

    Do tell.

      Food goes in here.

      Fa Kin Su Pah says:

      Small business rate relief
      continuing until October 2012.
      Excellent news

      • 21
        Alan Philip Bonggg says:

        Not sure what is happening to corporation tax for small businesses. BBC reports reduced rate to 23%, presumably for large businesses. New Labour ended up reducing corporation tax for big business after it had gone up but hiked up tax for small businesses to compensate.

    Desperate Dan says:

    Ken likes to stick to tradition and down a few whiskies to lubricate his throat on Budget Day.

  10. 16
    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    Wee Dougie needs a slap.

  11. 23
    I once had a pair of yellow socks says:

    Wee Dougie is a young Stuart Bell, in other words a twat.

  12. 25
    hmmmm says:

    At least ken was there but where was Gordon???

  13. 26
    The Pope says:

    The little ugly jock arsewipe has forgotten that wonder boy Brown the gobshite was asleep for 13 years.

  14. 27
    Loungelizard says:

    Quite why Douglas Alexander thinks anyone has the need to convince him or his colleagues of anything is beyond comprehension. He and the Labour party are a political irrelevance.

  15. 28
    Hang Wee Dougie The Bastard says:

    Wee Dougie is an over-excited little TWERP !

    The way he acted today reminded me of someone from a nursery playground.

    The posionous little bastard is a WEE SNAKE !

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.”
