The Perils of the Modern Labour Party

Guido isn’t sure whether he believes this one, but it’s a great line anyway.

After the Mail ran with Sophy Ridge’s blog post about the Balls’ lasagne plot, it’s become the hottest ticket in town.

Skinner’s invite must have got lost in the post…

    Good ole’ Dennis Skinner. Proper Labour, not like Ed and his shitmates, all Oxford P.P.E.’s and SPAD creepers, never done any real work, CNUTS.

        Dennis Skinner would make a better member of the House of Lords than many of the geriatric troughing placemen there at present. Alas he would probably refuse, because he’s got more honour and dignity than all those fraudsters put together.

    Skinner only eats dinosaur steak. Time you retired Skinner, you must be way past 65 years old. Just scrounging from the tax payer. Old habits die hard for commies.

          Yes any MP who is bottom of the expenses claims list, honest views, not a puff, grammar school educated, total integrity and still working over 65 years of age must be considered mad these days.

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
