Great First Week for Tim Livesey

During his pre-Christmas leadership wobble, Ed rushed out the news that Tim Livesey, a former senior adviser to the Archbishop of Canterbury, has been hired as his new Chief of Staff. Well what a first week he’s having! Yesterday there was Glasman, then the cack-handed response to Abbott this morning, and now Tom Baldwin’s latest strategy memo has been leaked, to much hilarity. Apparently Labour’s post-election recovery has been the best of any party in history. Quiet at the back.

Isn’t it amazing how it’s Sam Coates of The Times keeps getting Baldwin’s memos. They used to work together when Baldwin was the Times’ Chief Reporter. It’s almost as if Baldwin knows that a “leak” is more likely to be read over a press release. Straight out of the Democrat play-book…

UPDATE: Not a strategy, it is a lunchtime line to take. Baldwin would know.

    No amount of spin, re-launches etc can propel him to Number ten, this all reminds me of Gordon….

    All Tories are racists says chair of London Race & Criminal Justice Consortium says:

  54. 54

    The Royal Navy first started systematic operations outside of what today would be thought of as UK waters to deal with the menace of Barbary pirates, who were raiding the shores of England and Ireland to enslave people. Admiralty records show that they plundered British shipping pretty much at will, taking no fewer than 466 vessels between 1609 and 1616, and 27 more vessels from near Plymouth in 1625.

    The pirates also raided coastal settlements, generally running their craft onto unguarded beaches, and creeping up on villages in the dark to snatch their victims and retreat before the alarm could be sounded. Almost all the inhabitants of the village of Baltimore, in Ireland, were taken in this way in 1631, and other attacks were launched against coastal villages in Devon and Cornwall.

    Giles Penn, father of Admiral Sir William Penn did pursuade King Charles I to send naval forces to help Muley Mohammed put down a rebellion at Sallee, and he then became His Majesty’s Consul at that city, with a particular remit of trying to prevent trafficking of English slaves.

    The slavers nevertheless continued their activities throughut the seventeenth century. 160 British ships were captured by Algerians between 1677 and 1680, with an estimated 7-9000 people on board taken into slavery. Some 35,000 European Christian are known to have been slaves held on the Barbary Coast – many in Tripoli, Tunis, and various Moroccan towns, but most of all in Algiers.

    One rule for them says:

    all three accused were sentenced to life imprisonment and, in the appellant’s case, the punishment part was set at 25 years. The relevant charge was in these terms:

    “(1) on 15 March 2004 at Kenmure Street, Pollokshields, Glasgow, you Imran Shahid, Mohammed Faisal Mushtaq and Zeeshan Shahid did, while acting with Daanish Zahid and Zahid Mohammed … assault Kriss Donald, now deceased, then aged 15 years and seize him by his clothing, repeatedly punch and kick him on the head and body, partially remove his clothing and abduct him, force him to enter a motor vehicle, namely motor vehicle registered number Y541 VNS, imprison him there against his will, present a screwdriver, a knife and a hammer at him, repeatedly twist said knife against his body, pretend that you were in possession of a firearm, and force him to accompany you in said vehicle to areas of Dundee and thereafter to Clyde Walkway, Glasgow and at said Clyde Walkway remove him from said motor vehicle, restrain him by the arms, repeatedly strike him on the body with a knife or knives or similar instruments, pour an accelerant over him and set fire to him and you did murder him; and it will be proved in terms of section 96 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 that the aforesaid offence was racially aggravated”.

    Thanks Jack, I would not put the other points you make, but can confirm that you are correct about the issue of slavery.

    Admiralty records give some very specific poitners to the scale of this slaving. The records in the early part of the seventeenth century show that during this time the corsairs plundered British shipping pretty much at will, taking no fewer than 466 vessels between 1609 and 1616, and 27 more vessels from near Plymouth in 1625. Pirates also raided coastal settlements. Almost all the inhabitants of the village of Baltimore, in Ireland, were taken in this way in 1631, and other attacks were indeed launched against coastal villages in Devon and Cornwall.

    Captain Giles Penn, father of Admiral Sir William Penn managed to pursuade Charles I to sent the Royal Navy to launch an offensive against the pirates and they attacked at Sallee in support of a local rebel. As a result he secured a position as an English consul there with the remit of dealing with trafficking of English slaves.

    The problem continued through much of the rest of the century however. 160 British ships were captured by Algerians between 1677 and 1680, with a probable 7,000 to 9,000 able-bodied British men and women taken into slavery in those three years. Some 35000 European ‘Christian Slaves’ , are known to have been held in Barbary ports in the 17th Century.

    There are estimates however of Barbary slavers taking some 850,000 european captives over the century from 1580 to 1680, with estimates for the 250 years between 1530 and 1780, said to have been as high as 1,250,000.

    I agree, though – it’s far better to respond and educate people like Jasper than to descend to the neanderthal level and start ranting about “blacks” and “whites”.

    Jasper probably thinks that the ending of slavery was everywhere like Jamaica or Haiti, where the slaves did indeed revolt. He’s a total cock and a waste of space, though – Dog knows how he came to prominence.

    The discussion leaves me in no doubt that Diane Abbott is thick. Just the right material for Ed Miliband’s shadow government.

    Hey Sophy,

    Would you like to come for a spin in my new Range Rover Evoque? There will be a teddy bear and much more in it for you.

    If laziness alone were a reason to disbar MPs from public life, I can think of a quite a number of constituencies which would be holding by-elections.

    One rule for them says:

    I should point out for the avoidance of doubt that all of the accused in the above case were prosecuted as adults – there have been suggestions that Norris and Dobbs should have been prosecuted as such and be facing 30 years minimum (including the judge at the sentencing I believe).

    No prizes either for guessing which religion is behind this.

    A quote from the Wikipedia entry on slavery in modern Africa. It deals with the attempts to abolish slavery in Mauritania

    “Imam El Hassan Ould Benyamin of Tayarat in 1997 expressed his views about earlier proclamations ending slavery in his country as follows:

    “[it] is contrary to the teachings of the fundamental text of Islamic law, the Quran … [and] amounts to the expropriation from Muslims of their goods; goods that were acquired legally. The state, if it is Islamic, does not have the right to seize my house, my wife or my slave.”[32]”

    Slavery wasn’t abolished in Iran until 1928, Qatar until 1952, Saudi Arabia and Yemen until 1962, the UAE until 1963 and Oman until 1970.

    Bogeyman says:

    Fuck off, Grasper you cn ut. WHITE PEOPLE DID NOT END SLAVERY? They were forced into it?

    Tell that to William Wilberforce, the man who did more to stop slavery than anyone else. Yes, a white Christian banished slavery from Britain through moral conviction and nothing else.

    Grasper deserves the Abbott treatment, minimum. Something more uncomfortable and permanent would be better.

    Bogeyman says:

    I am still absolutely fuming at the tweet by Lee Grasper. Remember, this turd calls himself a race relations advisor – then he comes up with insulting and divisive shit like that.

    I suppose you can’t expect anything better from one of Leninslime’s henchmen.

    Yes, I agree, this could have been Ed’s VETO moment had he sacked her. I don’t think this is just going to blow over (esp after BlAckbusters, lol). I think she’ll still go but it’ll be kicking and screaming and asked to resign for the good of the party by that nice new Tim bloke in Ed’s Office. Which will reflect even worse on Ed as he’ll appear indecisive and blown around by public opinion.

    This was a lucky escape for the Government.

    From quotes at IMDB

    Star Wars .. A New Dope. The Miliband Red-Ray edition.

    A long time ago, in a leadership race of little importance, far, far away…

    Ed Shitetalker buys androids from the tiny, squabbling, double dealing, corrupt scrap metal droid dealers, the Jowells. The red activist one blows up.
    C3P-Hain “Master Ed. This one has quit. Seems he had a bad motivator.”

    “Are you Tony-Benn Kenobi, of the far left alliance ?”
    “now there’s a party I haven’t heard of in a long time..”

    Outside the Cantina bar.
    Old Tony-Benn Kenobi tells the Unison Immaterial stormtrooper guards.
    “This is not the leader you are looking for. He should go about his business.”

    In the bar. Ed Shitetalker is confronted by an angry, hideous faced old /new labour supporter. {John Prescott}
    “My friend doesn’t like you!”
    “Well..I’m sorry..but I’ll try my very best..”
    “I don’t like you either. You just watch yourself. We’re unwanted men. I have punched voters on twelve boundaries. ”
    Old Tony-Benn Kenobi steps in..
    “This little one isn’t worth the bother..I’ll buy you a pie..”

    At the table – they meet Plan Loco {ed balls}
    Ed Shitetalker: “Benn – is this the smuggler?”
    Tony-Benn Kenobi: “well ..he’s certainly very smug”

    Plan Loco: “Sure..I can get you to number 10..But what’s in it for me?”
    Tony-Benn Kenobi: “Double cabinet post pension pots for you and your wife. Half in expenses now..and half later..You have a plan to get us there?”
    Plan Loco: “You’ve never heard of the Pollonium Balls-Con? Its the plan that destroyed the economy in less than 12 parliaments.”

    At the trader’s spacecraft
    Ed Shitetalker: “What a heap of junk! These ancient tax and spend policies will never fly”
    Plan Loco: “Listen kid..they’ll make it past The BBC completely undetected. They may not look like much, but they’ve got it where it counts, kid. In borrowing! I’ve made a lot of special modifications myself. I changed many of the ‘9’s to ‘0’s.”

    Tony-Benn Kenobi: “Your father’s Abacus. This is the weapon of a Jedwood Shite. Not as accurate or precise as a calculator; an elegant calculating device for a more prosperous age. For over a thousand days, the Jedwood Shites were the guardians of the finances in the Old Labour Republic. Before the dark times… before the money ran out..”

    Ed talks about predators and producers again.
    Plan Loco: Damn fool, I knew he was going to say that.
    Tony-Benn Kenobi: Who’s the more foolish? The fool, or the fool who follows him?

    Dave Prentis: Red One standing by!
    Sadiq Khan: Red Three standing by!
    Polly Toynbee: Red Six standing by!
    10 o’clock news: Red Ten standing by!
    Ken Livingstone: Red Ken standing by!
    Dianne Abbott: Red or black, standing by!
    Red Ed: yep..That’s about all who will vote for me.

    Red Ed: Stay on message..stay on message..
    Red Abbott: I got a problem here. My Twitter finger’s getting cramp. And I’m eating soup!
    Red Ed: Eject!
    Red Abbott: I can hold it. Gimme more room to type.
    Red Ed: You’re too off message. Shut up!
    Red Abbott: No, I’m all right…
    [death scream]
    Red Six: [Porky Abbott’s career explodes from a media crossfire]

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
