          Darling would not need a glass to hear what was going on next door when Huggie Brown was on the rampage


          • me me says:

            true but there is comic effect from him at one side of wall with a glass… saying – ooooh that was bigger than a nokia!

            i liked darlings “outside the tent” – comment that when you get to chancellor in the brown government – you not in the mainstream of the gov conciousness, despite sitting in cabinet and on many committees….

            also nice touch with gadaffi and “tent” diplomancy… lol


          • me me says:

            we had the madness of king george,,,

            any money on the best movie of the last 10 years being

            The madness of Gordon Brown…. ?

            who freed Bank of England from responsibility for the banks…. GB

            who at high of the financial crisis wanted a new chancellor …. GB

            who at the high of the financial crisis wanted new governer of bank of england… GB

            who though crisis would only last 6 months….. GB

            GB gonna have hard time in his memoirs explaining how all these poeple now coming out (blair, mandy, darling) saying he – GB – the chancelor was the root of all evil – and cause of the financial crash in banking – cos it was his idea – to make bank of endland independant.


          • Aunt Mat says:

            The Darling campaign is brilliant.

            It draws attention to the fact that everyone BUT the Governor of the Bank of England, Sir Mervyn King has lost their job.

            This guy is still in post – WHY?


          • meme says:

            why should he loose his job – his job was to watch the banks and ensure they did not loose the plot – then along came GB and said no the bank of englands job is now as an independant body (remember this bit?) and to only focus on inflation target….

            and FSA will watch banks….

            and when banks went overboard – King was right – dont spend too much or inflation will be very big issue

            even darling says he though king tooo focused on inflation – well someone has to be focused on inflation – or recovery will become inflation led depression and long term recession.

            you cannot print money forever….

            king has his job because – uk leading way out of this crisis at present, while others germany, greece, usa – heading into it.


          • Mervyn King says:

            1. I am good at transferring blame.

            2. Everyone is in awe of economists, even though we can’t actually achieve any results – rather like doctors in 1811, in fact.

          I remember in the run-up to the election whenever a labour minister was asked about Brown, or any splits or challenges, they all lied their asses off and claimed that all was well in the labour party and the rumours where media tittle tattle.

          Now, thanks to several books, with multiple sources, we know for certain that the labour front bench lied their assess off about the moron at the top, Brown, and publicly stated that he was the best person to lead labour and the country into the election.

          They all said it. They all lied. Why should we believe anything they say?


          • Nemo says:

            Maybe they thought the only way get rid of the immoveable Brown was to say “Yes Gordon was the best to lead them” as they knew they would lose the election if Brown lead them, then they could get rid.

          • misterned says:

            What is wrong with people in this country. With the current revelations from hack-gate in which labour supporting media hacked people’s phones, When the relationship between the Murdoch Media and the labour government was so close that Blair was Godfather to one of Murdoch’s kids.

            On Libya, Labour were so friendly with Gaddafi, they, not only turned a blind eye to torture, but that had our intelligence services get involved in it to prop-up Gaddafi. And as papers released in the submissions to an American court prove, the Labour Government had knowledge of and participation in rendition flights.

            On party politics itself, A. Darling has now admitted what most people knew, (but the BBC and the rest of the media would not report at the time) that the top of the labour party was involved in an internal civil war for the last 2 years, due to Brown’s idiotic incompetence and that now Brown’s two most trusted MPs are now occupying the top two places in the labour party, people who both wanted to INCREASE government spending further.

            AND the Labour party STILL have only a blank piece of paper for policy, having rejected EVERY cut the coalition government have made, yet they still cannot name one area where they would have made cuts.

            Yet they are still on average 3 points in the lead in the opinion polls.

            WTF are labour supporters thinking?

        Nevermind the multiple times that Tory scum have been imposed on Scotland, Wales and the North with almost no-one there voting for them. If you’re looking for a real democratic deficit there it is.

        Not mentioned on the BBC website front-page either, or their politics page. Now if there had been a revelation that Cameron was the godfather of one of Murdoch’s family, then the BBC would be running with nothing else.

        The fact that all the hacking took place in a labour supporting paper when labour were in power and there were very close links between the Murdoch’s and the Blair’s is irrelevent. Apparently Cameron employing someone who lied about what he did in a previous job is far more serious.

        I guess every employer, state and private, who has ever employed someone who lied about their past, should resign then.

        Has the BBC never employed someone who lied about their past?

    I guess the ginger hair suggests a person on Celtic origin, we still have to be politically correct just for the sake of Polly Twaddle, I hope it comes off, this so called rebrand because Liebour won’t want to miss out and hopefully the Scots will get a backbone and create the space for England go it alone and leave us alone, along with not being in the EU when it comes to paying for University places, oh the times are a changin.

          Well said. We all knew that Brown was a bully-boy and a 5-star incompetent, and the fact that after 10 years of wrecking as chancellor his Liebour cronies put him there – and kept him there – speaks volumes for their decision-making abilities. Spineless, self-serving political pygmies, every one of them. Nothing changes.

          Hugh Janus says:

          I would be very happy with a 30% increase over the next 9 years, bearing in mind that we have had increases of around 30% in just the past 2. It isn’t going to happen of course; the 30% figure came from the Huhne of Huhnes. He knew it to be false, but thought the population would be taken in by it. Whichever way you look at it, it’s just another political lie like all the rest.

      • 81
        misterned says:

        AGW isn’t proven. In fact it has got so bad that the cAGW alarmist crowd have now given up any pretence of sticking to the scientific method and now refute papers in blogs and in the media instead of writing honest, open and proper scientific papers to refute sceptical, peer reviewed papers. They highlight this with a headline grabbing resignation of one of their acolytes. Editor-in-Chief of the journal Remote Sensing, Wolfgang Wagner resigned because he felt that his Journal should not have published the work of Spencer & Braswell. This followed much criticism from the alarmist lobby, that a sceptical paper passed peer-review.

        Trenberth et al have been shown to be totally incapable of sticking to science and allowing the empirical evidence lead their discoveries, because the empirical evidence does not correspond with what their computer models have been programmed to say. SO they have now taked to ad-hominem attack instead.

        The resignation of a journal’s editor, is NOT a proper, nor scientific way to refute a properly, peer-reviewed paper. The Spencer & Braswell paper went through appropriate and proper peer review, it passed and was published.

        Spencer & Braswell still await any paper to refute their findings, but as of today, there has been none.

    Sky news making a real big issue this morning where someone tipped them off about a stash of guns hidden in a bin in London
    It is said that London gangs are stashing weapons for use in round two of the riots !
    So armed with about 40 coppers a and a full film crew they set off to the block of flats surround the area and start the search
    Soon they find a bag in the bin containing
    Three flintlock pistols , Two flair guns and a red rusty revolver !
    two things spring to mind
    One: if you pulled a flintlock pistol out during the riots you would not get shot ,because the police would be pissing their sides so much ,they wouldn’t be able to aim straight
    Two: most of these brain dead morons wouldn’t have the brain to operate a flintlock pistol
    Three: your street cred would be destroyed for ever if any other gang members saw you !
    For me these from a collector and are left over from a robbery and someone threw them out .
    They were in the bin because they were thrown away ,after all you don’t hide something you want to keep ,in a council bin that is emptied every week
    or maybe sky news put them there ?

        Again, typical BBC reportage, headline the increase in bonus of 187% but leave the factual context of that being over a decade, to lower down. Labour voters do not have the attention span to read the whole thing and knee-jerk on the increase.

        How much has your average council tax bill gone up over the last 10 years? Much more than 187%. Which party in government has frozen council tax bills? The tories.

      Sir William Waad says:

      I think we need the kind of moral regeneration that the early Victorians attempted. We can do without the prudery, although a retreat from rutting like monkeys on crystal would be helpful. Nevertheless, one of the triumphs of that period was that the ruling classes became convinced that they had to tone it down about, behave themselves rather more, set an example and put something back into society. If not, they risked revolution.

      The disconnection between the modern ruling class and the rest of the people – working, middle and claimant class – has gone beyond the point where we can safely ignore it.

      True that.

      Theoretically the Scots can vary income tax locally by 2% (might be 3%). During the local elections in 2003 and 2007 all the parties, if they mentioned this option at all were talking about what they’d do with the extra cash after they raised tax. Nobody was interested in cutting tax.

      Another reason I left.

      They genuinely didn’t see that, compared to England, Scotland is a hardship posting. They should be paying pople more or taxing folk less to keep them there. Well, with over half of all expenditure public sector expenditure they’re certainly paying them more. I just didn’t fancy paying for it all.

    Meanwhile, in the real world: August 10th, 6 GR4 Tornados carrying Storm Shadows were sent from RAF Marham in Norfolk to attack targets in Libya at a cost of 12.8million pounds for the missiles and 4.1 million pounds for associated costs. Total £15.9 Million.

    This attack took place 700Km from rebel positions.

      A) UN resolution 1973 is aimed at protecting civilians (from the evil that is Gaddafi’s Regime) That means bombing the shit out of whatever military capability he may have. Scud Missiles have a range that can hit anywhere in Libya. Therefore 1973 DOES cover this action.

      B) Cost. The UK’s contribution to this whole campaign’s cost has been met from standard MOD contingency reserves and, to put it into perspective, amounts to less than one afternoon’s worth of Labour’s record Deficit!
