Ken Swills Champagne at Boris Bashing Book Launch

To the Corinthia Hotel for the launch of Sonia Purnell’s Just Boris, the unauthorised, but probably pretty intriguing, bio of the mayor. Who should walk in, but a man that used to go by that name…

“We’re going to go through it for every nugget we can find” Ken told a co-conspirator before grabbing a glass of champagne. “Right I’m off to find the Labour bloggers”, he said as he disappeared towards the tie-less section of the crowd…

    Tachybaptus says:

    ‘That used to go buy the name …’ How lucky his party can’t afford to any more.

  2. 2
    Uncle Ken says:

    Nothing too good for the workers.

  3. 3
    David Climate Change says:

    Did Ken hatch from an egg or did he spring into the world fully formed?

  4. 4
    Phantom says:

    Still putting the champagne in socialism.

    Labour bloggers huh? Doesn’t he mean union-funded sock puppets?

  5. 5
    Flatulent Veteran says:

    No, tax payer funded (through fraudulent ‘modernisation’ scheme).

    Aled Ballon says:

    Brother Ken – more axolotl than Aristotle

  7. 7

    I spend a lot of time wondering whether it is a frightfully clever in-joke or the result of Labour education.

  8. 8
    Engineer says:

    Also, ‘Mayor’ isn’t a name, it’s a title, or designation of public office.

    It would seem that the position of sub-editor, blah blah…

  9. 9
    Handycock (Teen Fondler and Russian Spy Shagger) says:

    Boris is an amateur compared with me. He is half my age and never been with some of the young girls I have. I am the best candidate to take over as Mayor of London when I get kicked out as an MP. It will be my policy, once elected, to twin London with both Moscow and St Petersburgh so that I can visit both cities every week or so. Boaz.

  10. 10
    Some Tory boys are excellent, e.g. Boris. says:

    Good luck Ken.

    Boris is an able man with truckloads of integrity. Unlike Dave who seemingly did what Rupert asked re the BBC, i.e. Dave seemingly acted against the interest of the nation for personal gain.

    Boris might go la la la when avoiding a question from a reporter but he’d say the same when asked by Rupert to act against the national interest.

    Boris for leader / PM.

    Luciana Berger - who hasn't she shagged? says:

    Spent. Simply a result of poor education.

    Plenty of uneducated candidates for that post from News International. I believe it was their boss who used to buy the title for their anointed one.

    Old Tory Bigot says:

    Ha ha. Very good AB.

    Whatever species of reptile he is, he’s still an odious little Marxist turd.

    Champagne for Ken. Socialism for the rest of us.

    Livingslime is proof positive why socialists should be held in utter contempt.

    “We’re going to go through it for every nugget we can find” Ken told a co-conspirator

    LOL He could find King Solomons Mines in there, he’s still going to be in his shed looking after his newts next June. Sad, bitter little man.

  25. 25
    Fish says:

    Talking of Champagne Socialism, I see Gordo is neglecting his contituents yet again. Instead of scouring the beaches of Fife for strontium 90, he’s globe trotting once again, this time at another global financial conference.

    Now then, is that the third or fourth time he’s been off to these junkets this year (was the last one in was in Asia?).

    I think that it’s been recorded elswhere that Gordo doesn’t have great personal wealth, so just who is paying for these trips – does he have a donor /sponsor a la Werrity? If so who is it? and what is in it for them?

    Even if he is funding these trips himself, it would be good to know the purpose and value that this BACKBENCHER finds in these trips. Just who is he rubbing shoulders with and why?

    Not alleging anything, of course. Just asking.

  26. 26

    This area is certainly not my taxonomic forte.

  27. 27
    Luciana Berger - who hasn't she shagged? says:

    Jail the lot of them! And then lets celebrate the brilliant funding ploy of their Tory equivalents in getting funding from the Israel lobby. Why cut spending if you can sell out to a foreign power?

  28. 28
    Luciana Berger - who hasn't she shagged? says:

    And what, exactly, is the complaint. We in Guildford are praying for someone to fund Anne Milton to pay an unescorted visit to Somalia.

    What is the matter with labour these days ?

    militwit jumping on pointless bandwagons making outrageous pointless demands that are never gonna be met. Livingstone spending all his time boris bashing.

    What happened to the days when labour had policies rather than blank sheets of papers and bottles of champagne?

  32. 32
    Luciana Berger - who hasn't she shagged? says:

    Seems a little pointless anyway given that nothing new about Boris can be more scandalous than is already in the public domain. Bunga bunga Boris!

  33. 33
    Tuscan Tony says:

    No good ever comes of trying to explain the peccadilloes of Labour’s leaders to the followers: most of the know they need someone slippery and conniving to pretend to believe in their case and such people are usually of the ilk of Ken, Ed or Ed. Or even Neil.

    For the same reason it’s never suggested that unions might contemplate buying the coal mines, factories, mills, whatever and run them for their own benefit.

  34. 34
    Luciana Berger - who hasn't she shagged? says:

    Policies disappeared at the time of the historic Eton/Fettes agreement to share the government.

    Yes. Boris for PM. Might as well dance as the ship slides under.

  41. 41

    Of course that is never contemplated. Otherwise it would not be with the bottomless pit of taxpayers’ money.

  42. 42

    No. I did mean spend. It happens on many occasions of which this is but one.

  43. 43
    Ramrod says:

    If the champagne’s free, you can’t blame him for drinking it. I would.

    But his biggest problem is turning up to a Boris book launch. He looks like he’s obsessed with Boris, as if he’s got nothing to do than chitter-chatter with a flute in his hand.

  44. 44
    nell says:

    The founding fathers of labour like keir hardie must be turning in their graves at this self serving troughing lot. in the late 19th century the emergence of the labour party was necessary to represent employees working in terrible conditions, whilst the liberals looked after business interests and the tories represented landed interests.

    none of the the current labour crew have the slightest interest or understanding of the contemporary working classes. They have no experience of real working conditions themselves having spent their entire life oerpaid and underworked in the westminster bubble.

    I’m beginning to think that the current labour party is in a slow death throe and that it’s time for the emergence of a new party that represents the interests of people who are in real paid employment as opposed to people who are on benefits or who are employed by the millions in government non-jobs.

    After all where else would you expect to find a socialist, especially one so closely associated to pollytwaddle, living off the taxpayer?

  48. 48
    nell says:

    Actually he does Boris a favour – the media pokes fun at ken trying to poke fun at Boris and gives Boris even better media coverage.

    Ken in the process just looks increasing like a bitter, pointless little man

    And when those non-jobs in the UK end, they fuck off to even better paid non accountable non-jobs in Europe.

    Yes they are but they are still representing the interests they were representing in the 1900’s. Nothing wrong in that.

    Labour are no longer representing the interests they were formed to protect – you and I – the real working classes.

    Labour only kow tows now to the welfare benefit folk and the millions of government non-jobs that they created in the hope that these two factions would keep them in power and money on tap for champagned in perpetuity.

    We need a new political party to represenent the real working class of you and I.

    Ken was probebely wanting to thank Boris for his michael footnote in his bio .

    Mervyn Kings speech was interesting , not too cryptic either , Insolvency is not caused because the borrowing dries up is it ……… that perhaps is called reality . I take it then that liquidity was borrowings then and not actual commercial flows . I thought it was the sort of scenario you would see after a sort of fabian ecnomic construct , but there is fraud and greed on a grand scale to consider . Could the ruins credit splurge now be looked at differently , I had assumed it was a pro euro election face saver , but with 70% of GDP in financial sector , it now looks more like the signature on the death of UK economy . I mean if the system was loaded with wonky globalised assetts , what better way to float them on a personal sea of credit , I mean did he not just put a booster on a wonk economy , so the banks could just hand out more ergo ending boom and bust ???.
    There is still the puzzle of what exactly he wanted to hide at RBS by not allowing any inspection of the books when it was nationalised , what was so shocking that we shouldnt be free to consider or see it ?? . Curtailing the bounus would have helped recapitalise it then so why was no action taken .

    Just been annouced 1.75 trillion euros has been found for bail out cough er sorry Insolvency rescue , but then in considering what Mervin had to say , you do wonder if anyone has quite grasped what the rebalance and sustainable ecnomics will look like , I mean if the EU and eurozone has no ecnomic model to change the ecnomic pattern into a sustainable one , whats the point in a massive bailout ? Is this not what happens when sovereign countries lose control of there economy to socialist centarlised lobbyists ?? i have not heard any reassurance of how the eurozone intends to keep its defcet down to pay for the bail out , why has Barroso not explained to eurozone members what it will be like .

    The reluctant recovery or the lying EU insolvency , wonder how it computes with Eds preditor prey theory , are debts/deficets not a stalking preditor to the tax payer ?

    Why is everyone talking bullshit?

    Western economies overheated because hundreds of millions of idiots were buying loads of unneeded ‘Stuff’ by way of cheap credit and lefty governments were very busy gerrymandering the socialist vote by way unaffordable ‘welfare’ spending -thereby living to an unsustainable standard of living both at the personal and national level.

    IMO there is no logic in trying to get people to buy ‘stuff’ again we just need to allow the market to adjust to a more ‘needs’ based economy – sure the short term stats will be ugly but we just need to live within our means. Perversely this reduction in the standard of living to an affordable level will also narrow the ‘poverty gap’.

    Harsh AC1 Harsh ………………… you know what its like you type with a torrent and occasionally miss gramatical and spelling errors and then click the post button ……. I thought regualr bloggers would be on a rewards scheme by now or is that what Billy is on ?

    One newspaper had “Cameron instructs torys to vote no to EU referendum” Eh ……. surely if its peoples debate (via peoples request) that should mean free vote . cast irony guarentee looks like daily mail , right minds has fired a round off .

    Didnt rate eds new shad treasury lady , and caught Lab again using rhetoric on another channel , without explaining what best solution is or how much you would need to borrow to ensure growth, I use the words ensure , as USA shows chucking money at this problem just adds to future generations to pay it off .

    Lord wolfson to offer £250k to anyone who can offer a solution to sort the Eurozone crisis out ! cut CAP , slim down EU overheads by 20% , make it do audited accounts , scrap MEPs , just have heads of government , use remaining money for main roads and railways projects

    We’re always told that gyppoes aren’t thick. The Dale Farm bunch used the court system to appeal the eviction but when the court ruled it could go ahead, they vowed to stay and fight. Can someone explain to these thick pikeys that they can’t use a legal route to get what they want and then ignore the decision because it didn’t go their way.

    It never fails to amaze me how idiots think that the law can be broken with impunity. It also never fails to amaze me how supporters of the great unwashed and so-called persecuted would have a fit if these scumbags set up camp next to the supporters’ property.

    Well done the police in upholding the law and I hope they are recording pictures of the thugs who are throwing objects at thenm – and I hope they are dealt with in s similar manner as the recent rioters.

    they don’t pay taxes, they moonlight at various jobs and draw benefits, so live at our expense.

    oddly pedantic says:

    If I may quibble, most people in work nowadays are working in either some sort of clerical or managerial role, and/or are self-employed. The Trades Unions were a mass movement of – and for – mostly unskilled manual labourers.

    The cotton gins spin no more, the pits and smelting furnaces are closed and redeveloped for executive flats or heritage experience. Labour’s core membership has been offshored, along with the trades in which they were once employed.

    What’s left are nostalgists, social tourists and the tribally loyal.

    I agree that a new party is needed to cope with the likely collapse in the LibDem vote come 2015. Will you offer to be our new Boudicca?

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
