Naked Truth is Osborne Will Back IMF Bailout

Last night Guido tweeted

Guido reckons the spin coming from the Treasury about them saying “No” is bluster. Guido suspects they mean they are not ready to send billions to the IMF just yet…

If by St Patrick’s day Osborne has kept his promise, made to MPs on October 27, that “Britain will not be putting money into the bail-out fund either directly or through the IMF” Guido will keep his promise* and run naked around Smith Square from the EU offices right past Transport House and back. Don’t count on seeing Guido’s bare arse streaking past the daffodils on March 17…

*Iain Dale has yet to “run naked down Whitehall” as promised on election night.

    David Camoron (traitor, thief and liar) says:

    I absolutely promise you, hand on heart, that I will not, under any circumstances, give* any money for any more euro bailouts.

    I know I promised that before, at least twice, and on every occasion I’ve broken my promise, but this time I really really really mean it. God’s honest truth.

    *I’m going to lend it, on the understanding we never get it back. That’s different from “giving it”.

    David Camoron (traitor, thief and liar) says:

    I have some whizzer ideas about raising the cash.

    Tax increases, hospital closures, scrapping what’s left of the nation’s defences, borrowing the money so we’ll be repaying the interest forever and ever and ever. Or a bit of all of these things.

    But that £25billion of your money has to be handed over one way or the other. I don’t want the French and Germans shouting at me again. The question is, how am I going to raise the next £25billion? And the £25billion after that? Gosh, it’s frightfully tricky. But it’s good that we’re in the EU.

    I’m afraid you right Dave ‘Look I’ve Grown a Pair Vote for Me’ has been playing the PR game very well of late, his ‘veto’ that in fact vetoed nothing and is a spent force by 2014 anyway when majority voting rules will apply has gone down a treat with faithful who think he has seen the light.

    Nothing could be further from the truth, this piece of spin is part of the PR campaign he has put together to remove the heat from EuroSceptics, remove the threat of a referendum and keep the EU show on the road, it also keeps the LibDem in their place as well. If the Euro goes tits up trust me he’ll be leading the charge to bolster it.

    Business and investors can kiss my arse, like any venture if it goes badly wrong you lose your wad, millions of jobs may be lost across Europe?…since when have investors worried about jobs before investment returns…

    Highly amusing and totally improbable its the investment they want to protect, loss of jobs a red herring.

    What ever, Gideon was promising to match (and in some cases increase) NuLab’s insane profligacy right up until the credit crunch

    That alongside his commitment to totally deregulate the mortgage industry 11 months before Northern Crock went tits up speaks volumes about his financial credibility.

    jgm2 says:

    That’s right. Got a High Court judge to rule that Labour’s manifesto promises weren’t subject to ‘legitimate expectation’. Then thought he’d won some kind of a ‘victory’. A Judge rules that Labour promises aren’t worth the paper they’re written on and the Maximum Imbecile thinks he’s won!

    What a fucking jackass.

    I’m surprised the T*ries don’t make more of this ruling.

    A Judge has declared Labour manifesto ‘promises’ are meaningless! I’d be shouting it from the rooftops.

    and campaign whole-he*artedly for a ‘Yes’ vote to keep Britain
    a leading nation in Europe.” The Labour Party Manifesto 2005.

    Today, Renault announced they are withdrawing 5 models from the UK and closing 30% of their UK dealerships. That will mean a lot of jobless cheese-eating production-line surrender-monkeys over there.

    I have just returned from my plantations to find my felid in a very poor and emaciated condition. His crepuscular activity had almost ceased to be apparent. I have had to send him on a short recuperation.

    It has been drawn to my attention that you may have some knowledge of what afflicts him. He had been staring at a conveniently sited laptop screen and pressing the f5 key with his paw to the point that I shall have to install a replacement console, a tricky task on these things as I am sure you will be aware.

    If you are considering such an athletic feat, I would deem it a great favour if you would delay it until his return. I am sure he would hate to miss it especially as his imprimatur is likely to be on display. That would certainly excite him.

    Archer Karcher says:

    “They have taken the original draft constitution, blown it apart into separate elements, and have then attached them, one by one, to existing tre*aties. The Tre*aty of Lisbon is thus a catalogue of amendments. It is unpenetrable for the public.

    In terms of content, the proposed institutional reforms – the only ones which mattered to the drafting Convention – are all to be found in the Tre*aty of Lisbon. They have merely been ordered differently and split up between previous tre*aties.”

    We definitley don’t need to loan our hard earned money to any pesky Greeks. The have loads of brand spanking new fighter aircraft supplied by their german friends.

    EU loses export market of 62 million while UK loses a whopping 440 million.

    A real no brainer.

    The 26 agree their own treaty and resign en bloc from the EU. Dave is left on his own and will have to pay for the whole Brussels shooting match himself even if the Scots Welsh and irish promise to do all they can to help.

    I also suspect Ozzy will throw ‘em a patch. The problem is that the current size of the patch is not known. While the optimists tell us it will be around £25bn, I see that the €uroshare stops some £75bn short!………. and it don’t look like anybody else is digging into their pockets…….

    We’ll hand the UK to Merkle,
    There is nothing that you can do
    No referendums Changes through on the nod
    I am the PM and I’m a duplicitous sod

    We’d be out of Europe and that’s what the public crave

    He has silenced the sceptics, with the aid of the Europhiles

    This has been a carve up
    Helped by Merkosy
    They need our money
    That is quite plane to see
    They played out the charade so it looks as if Dave’s alone
    But were still in the EU and we’ll pay for the Euro zone

    Jolly voting weather
    We are all Europhiles

    Instead the problems have festered and libor landed me with a majority shareholding in some dodgy banks.

    Then along comes Dave and the share prices tank even more. There are riots in the streets and worse still I am still waiting my Bank dividend cheques!

    The only difference between Dave and libur is that Dave went to a posher school.

    I tell you something if Dave was in my school his head would have been stuck down the toilet long before now if I could have got clegg to open the cubicle door first that is.

    Somebody's got to care says:

    From Irwin Stelzer in the Weekly Standard

    “…..Cameron just might have taken the first step on the road to liberating Britain from the web of regulations and taxes that doom Europe to slow or no growth. It is possible that we are witnessing a huge change in the focus of British economic and foreign policy—from a focus on Europe, with its declining population, increased Islamization, rising taxes, and flawed currency, to one of reaching out to the growth areas of the world, as befits a great trading nation. “

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
