Off To Tease The Progressives

Guido is off to the Excel centre to watch the No Campaign votes pour in. The Prime Minister said this morning that “there will be no celebrating, there will be no congratulations.” He also made it clear on Thursday that he wasn’t part of the official No campaign, so Guido’s not sure they will  be acting on that particular memo…

With YouGov polling people who voted yesterday and finding a 62%/38% No win it could be a long night…

We all know better than our stupid politicians. £10 billion net wasted on EU for the benefit of our competition, our contribution has increased by more then all the cuts the goverment have made. Stupid! Then there’s the £10 billion foreign aid budget, £650 million to build schools in Pakistan. This is to ensure they don’t harbour terrorists. Madness.

      Conspiracy, or just plain incompetence?

      They managed to annouce “Obama Dead” before hastily correcting it. And they made a complete dogs breakfast of transmitting the Conservative Party Policital Broadcast at 22:40 on Tuesday night.

      Fans of Feedback will know that they have managed to broadcast entirely the wrong episode of a program many times.

      They even managed to cut in an automated continutity announcement during the 2 minutes Rememberence Day silence.

      And they justify their mega-salaries by quoting “industry norm”. Who else would employ these fucktards?

      And for this we are forced to pay £145.50 a year.

        You’re not forced to pay at all – I haven’t paid my TV tax ever, and just ask them to go away when they come round bleating.

        All the bluster in their threatening letters amounts to nothing when they have no proof to take to court, and if it gets that far then there is the Article 10 ‘nuclear option’ defence which if upheld would lead to the Bolsheviks Buggers and Cokeheads being unfunded.

    O/T a bit, but might be an interesting insight into the average voters mind…

    Until yesterday my brother-in-law was a hard working and very proactive Conservative Councillor. (Honestly!) Last night he was voted out by a few hundred labour votes. (In fact, he has been a Conservative Councillor in a Labour heartland for over ten years and has the support of lots of Labour and Liberal voters due to his care and diligence he has shown to locals.) This morning he has (before I left at lunchtime) received five phone calls, all from the same road, regarding a planning application that no one there wants; and which will blight the lives of those that live around it. Said person is the ONLY councillor that supported the residence of that road.
    By chance he had noticed that during the count, the road showed a 100% Labour vote. When each caller asked what the progression of their concerns were, he informed them that it was no longer his responsibility and they should now contact their Labour Councillor regarding the matter.
    “But he’s shit…he won’t help us…” was one quote.
    “What’s the point” was another
    The three other callers, once told that he was no longer a Councillor, admitted that it was now a foregone conclusion that the application would roll through unopposed.
    On the fifth call, word must have got around that this Councillor had been voted out and their plight was all but lost.
    “But who’s going to fight for us now?” A quite angry female asked.
    “Your new Labour Councillor,” replied ex-Councillor, “the one you voted for”
    “He won’t do anything!” she said
    “Then why did you vote for him?” he asked
    “To give the f**king useless Torys a kicking…” she replied
    he has taken the phone off the hook now and I think enjoying the rest of the Friday afternoon sitting in the sun for the first time in years.

    As a footnote, the winning Councillor (I’ve met him and he’s not a bad chap) told him last night “you were a superb Councillor, did your all for the people and if you switched to us last week, you may have doubled our vote.” He went on to say, “mind you, anyone with a Labour rosette would have walked this one…”

            I’m sure some Jocks are sober and intelligent – the fact that the Conservatives still hold 4 seats shows that to be true. The existence of Frankie Boyle shows that you can even produce a decent comedian once in a while, too.

            But it’s easier to generalise, and far more fun if it gets up the noses of sanctimonious twats such as yourself.

    The reason AV flopped was this.

    People are only interested in their jobs and how much cash they have in their pocket, as Clinton said “It’s the economy, stupid”

      But no-one calls Hain out on the bollocks he talks about devolved Wales and the contradiction between a Labour government waiving prescription charges in Wales but imposing them in a British government for England. They get close but they never nail the tosser.

      The Tories are slowing down spending, we’ve had riots on the streets, VAT and other taxes up to pay off Brown’s fucking debts and the Tories are still popular.

      Would that mass murderer be Wee Al McGravy, the man who put the remiss in remission?

      I think he only went for the title of Jockland’s greatest mass murderer because the competition at home was too great.

      Besides, as I see it, ’twas McConnell that let the bugger go at the insistence of the monocular moron.

    Eddie Izzard’s effect on the AV yes vote might give the BBC, and other such pushers of his type of approach and its appeal, some pause for thought about what you can foist on a public. Or perhaps not…

    Who do the Lib Dems think they are?!

    They are a joke party with a tiny number of seats and have been soundly rejected by the electorate. They react by blaming the Tories and saying they are going to extract more changes in Tory policy.

    Ashdown has plummeted in my estimation today. What a bitter and twisted fool.

    Just had to get that off my chest.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
