      I have already reprimanded both the Miliband poodles and instructed them to behave. The Karachi Ed Miliband’s performance yesterday was tragic but so is the EU so he will fit in well.

      The only possible reason I can think of for someone like Kate Hoey being a Labour MP is the lack of an offer of a safe seat from elsewhere. I suppose we all have to make a living.

    Would Mr Rwansley have notced that quite a few countries including Sweden, Hungary and Czech republic have now distanced themselves from laset weekend’s euro/eu negotiations? I guess so, but would he write about it? No, because Ed will increase the nr of public sector jobs again and all of thm will get advertised in Guardian/Observer and on their website. Labour government has been bankrolling Guardian to an unbelievable degree.

    PS Observer is nothing more than an instruction manual for beeb editors and reporters for the sunday, exlpaining how to spin pro labour, anti conservatives and only in favour of libdems when it simultaneously weakens conservatives and strengthens labour.

        According to the press gazette les and less are reading the guardian

        The Guardian, which increased its cover price to £1.20 on 18 September, was down 16.3 per cent year on year to an average daily sale of 226,473.

        The Daily Telegraph 594,644 ; -8.90 ; -1.53
        The Guardian 226,473 ; -16.30 ; -1.76
        The Times 413,233 ; -11.38 ; -0.95

        as for the observer (it should be renamed the declining readers)

        Independent on Sunday 133,108 ; -11.81 ; 1.65
        The Observer 266,744 ; -15.40 ; -0.60
        The Sunday Telegraph 465,389 ; -7.19 ; -1.38
        The Sunday Times 967,615 ; -8.06 ; -0.04

        So they will be losing even more money despite raising the cover price, as the lefties do not want to pay for it instead browse online instead

      World service news continuing to drip poison: proclaiming something about Cameron desperately looking for allies in the eu and Sweden saying he shouldn’t get his hopes up as far as they’re concerned as despite their vacillation, a spokesman affirmed they’d be more likely to vote with the treaty than not.

    The Banana photograph destroys any respect the voting public have for D Militwit, in their subconscious he is a buffoon. According to the experts the only way to negate this would be for him to release another photograph with something with sufficient impact to replace the image of the banana. Apparently only the image of a huge penis replacing the banana would do it.

      One of the versions of what has happened states she was made redundant. This probably means she has received a generous redundancy payment from you and me and then immediately gets re employed by Harriet Hatemen on a generous salary again paid for by you and me – a win win situation for everyone (except you and me ).

    This power struggle between brothers for the throne seems to belong more to the Wars of the Roses than a modern parliamentary democracy.I don’t think we’ve ever seen it in this country. Austen and Neville Chaamberlain both led the Tory party at different times but they were half brothers (sort of- same famous father and their mothers were sisters) but the peaks of their careers were years apart.

    We deserve better than a Hampstead marxist family vendetta.

      Did HMRC ever cash that cheque that Haze waved in front of the cameras? …you know, the one that she was shamed into handing over following her flipping tax avoidance scam. (That’s the same scam employed by the Balls’s although, Yvette (she who knows everything…she who thinks TM should provide parliament, at the drop of a hat, with the full names and dates of birth of every illegal entrant to the UK) can’t remember what she declared as her main residence, and have therefore never paid their dues to the best of my knowledge)

      I only ask because having spent the morning on the phone to the self same HMRC, I find it improbable that they would be able to respond to such an ad-hoc payment – or anything that was outside their stupid effin’ procedures.

      Oh tiny red-headed one, please do tell.

    Welcome to the show. Today we examine Brotherly backstabbing. These men are brothers and both have stabbed each other in the back in order to be leader of an unpopular Party. So Ed stabs David in the back first to become leader and then David stabs Ed in the back to remove him from power so he can take his place. You both should be ashamed of yourselves. If you can stab each other in the back. What makes you think the electorate will trust any of you not to stab them in the back? You both should be ashamed of yourselves. Get off my show. I do want see your faces again. Put down the blades and get of my stage. Ed you go left and David you go right. Now go! *audience* Boos
