    I have a 50 inch tv slightly burned at edges and lots of carpet for sale

      Ah, the triumph of 13 years of muli-culturalism allied to 13 years of Edukashunx3 !

        Ed Milimong's Parasite Party says:

        Don’t spout your western-cultural imperialism here, matey-boy – you’re obviously hideously white.

        Looting and robbing is part of the rich cultural identity of the Tottenham community. Far from criticising it, we should be celebrating it as one of the glorious hallmarks of Multicultural Britain.

          Grumpy Old Man says:

          What a coincidence! Looting and robbing is also part of the rich cultural inheritance of the Socialist movement in the UK.


          • Mad Hattie Harman's curiously cavernous front bottom says:

            Rejoice at the rich multicultural looting experience bequeathed to you by the Parasite Party.

            When the Parasite Party returns to its rightful place – in government – after the next election, the multicultural looting experience will resume with greater enthusiasm than ever before. We shall sweep-away the last vestiges of British pseudo-culture and – using your money – create a new Parasitic Society where every city, town and village becomes indistinguishable from Tottenham.

    Hugh Janus says:

    That bumbling old fool Cable also told us last week that we are well-placed to weather the financial storm.

    Now where have I heard that kind of stupid comment before?? And was it not the case that we were subsequently engulfed in a tsunami of debt, inflation and reduced living standards?

    There is clearly no one quite so ridiculous as a politician.

    fair’s fair Guido.

    he’s only saying what his boss, the world-renowned economic genius that is Gideon George Osborne is telling him to say.

      Gordon Brown says:

      My genius brought an end to boom and bust.

      And my sale of 395 tonnes of Britain’s gold at the bottom of the market made this country a fortune.

      The Scribbler says:

      Cable has more than a few times shown that his statements are all his own, no matter what the consequences.
      Based on this prophetic statement he has proven he is in the wrong job (as we all know) and he should now be made Home Secretary – of Zimbabwe.
      Strange that UK sovereign debt is 80% of our GDP yet the BBC bang on about Spain whose sovereign debt is only just over 60% of their GDP.
      They are drowning in a sea of information at a loss as to how they can manipulate it to suit their agenda, and losing credibility in this inability.
      Using the Guardian, LSE and a few redbricks for their economists and editors is proving an albatros around their necks.

    Paul Marks says:

    Every day I find it difficult to come to terms with the idea that “Uncle Vince” Cable is a minister – the man is such a waste of space (so radically wrong headed – about everything).

    If having people like Mr Cable as senior ministers was the price of the deal with the Lib Dems, then David Cameron should have “put Labour back in to bat” i.e. let the Lib/Lab pact (that people like Mr Cable craved) take place.

    As the Liberals and Labour together would not have had a real majority in the House of Commons such a Lib/Lab government would have already collapsed (brought down by some vote or other) and there would now be a majority Conservative government elected cleanly at a general election.

    Mr Cameron was too eager to become Prime Minister – he grasped at the chance without thinking of the true consequences of the deal he was making. If only he had waited he would still, now, be Prime Minister – but at the head of a proper Conservative government.

    Tacitus says:

    Hindsight is wonderful.
    Vince and his sandals and beard chums had no leadership ability and an inflated egotistical view of their capabilities. Cameron was conned by them and himself in believing this would change in the shorter term when they had responsibilities and accountability.
    I believe Clegg is doing his best; but Vince and his party are now operating well into their Peter Principle regions, and it is likely that one of them will cause a major crisis in the near future.

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
