    Labour Party policy, 1900 – present day.

    And the corollary is:

    “We all know what we shouldn’t do, but we know how to get re-elected, so we do it.”

    Doesn’t always work e.g. G Brown.

    If they want to get re-elected they must be seen to be fair. Wielding the axe amongst the poor while turning a blind eye to wealthy tax dodgers will be seen for what it is, corrupt.

    Billij van der Bouwwdens is de beroemdste Belgische ooit! says:

    “but we don’t know how to get re-elected once we have done it.”

    True in Belgium, where they still have a caretaker Government, they can’t even elect themselves.

    I got so frustrated and tired of not being elected in Brussels that I took up alternate employment.

    Bollocks. They don’t have the first idea what to do. If they did they’d pick up the 250k of free next clothing on offer. Although to be fair if I knew the answer I’d keep quiet lest I was given the horrendous dross they sell.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
