More Bunkum From Labour

Morning Kenny,

When recycling old attacks on Brown, it’s probably best to clear the line with everyone…


  1. 1
  2. 2
    Lard Pressclot says:

    Bunk up mentality when I was in gummunt.

  3. 3
    Axe The Telly Tax says:

    A Blunkett mentality under Liebore :-)

  4. 4
    Andrew Efiong says:

    Everyone is laughing at Labour and Ed Miliband!

  5. 5
    East India Company wallah says:

    Surely thats the entire point Ed,the doctors and nurses have controlled the production for far too long,isnt it time the long suffering taxpayer has some input into the most over-staffed behemoth in history
    Maybe a little concession like booking an appointment when the patient wants would be a start
    Speaking of patients groups??
    is being a patient a career now?

  6. 6
    Tuscan Tony says:

    More impressive is that the error was spotted by none other than knee owe.

  7. 7
    The last Quango in Paris says:

    why don’t they say ‘banker mentality’ thus killing two issues with one stone – the fact that it doesn’t make sense is neither here nor there as I haven’t understood anything Ed Miliband has been trying to articulate for, well, well forever.

  8. 8

    So 25 full-time NHS staff, most on contracts as long as five years, are paid through companies owned by their families. Many were earning well over £100,000 a year.

    The device allows individuals to pay as little as 21% corporation tax, rather than the higher rate of 40% or top rate of 50%. Labour has been reluctant to challenge the practice in the NHS since it knows many of the agreements were cleared under the last Labour government.


    All set up under Labour to avoid paying Labour’s own taxes ffs.

  9. 9
    The beast of TRALEE says:

    Chris Huhne has the dumpum mentality

  10. 10

    I prefer a bunkup.

  11. 11
    Alastair Darling the chancellor who flipped his home to avoid paying capital gains tac says:

    Whats wrong with that ?

  12. 12
    Cato Street Conspirator says:

    One of those occasions when both ‘bunker’ and ‘bunkum’ apply.

    (In Brown’s case it was ‘bunker’ and ‘bonkers’).

  13. 13
    Dave the Dictator says:

    more shit from dictator dave

    Cameron calls a meeting of all those who agree about his plans to privatise the NHS – wow – true democrat

    Cameron calls meeting with all his buddies to see how much more they can screw out of the british population – true fucking nazi

  14. 14
    Some Geezer wot thinks all politicians have a "Barnum" mentality says:

    Ed has a bunkum mentality, that’s for damned sure. He believes all his own bunkum, which is probably worse. As for Cameron’s having a “bunker mentality,” I propose that we all avoid any Hitler references in any domestic issue not involving race or anti-Semitism, as to contravene Godwin’s Law: “The longer a political discussion takes place, the likelihood that the Nazis will be brought up approaches certainty.” (This will, of course, not sit well with some of the posters on this blog who like to call Labour National Socialists!)

  15. 15
    Cato Street Conspirator says:

    So, Can’t remember, does that make it right or wrong?

  16. 16
    do as i say not what i do says:

    The hypocrisy of the left in all it’s gory glory. Duplicitous fuckers.

  17. 17
    RED ED - SON OF BROWN says:

    Cato Street Conspirator says:

    It’s so Dodgy Dave can say, ‘All the doctors I have spoken to agree with the privatisation programme’.

    Spartacus says:

    it will be interesting to see what happens int he next election.

  21. 21
    stinking reds says:

    It makes it wrong for those who claim to be socialists but right for those who don’t. Clear enough now?

  22. 22

    Hypocritical is the word you appеar to be struggling for here.

  23. 23
    It is not that difficult you spanner... says:

    Why does Ed make attacking the coalition look so difficult?

    There is soooooooooo much to choose from:

    1. EU Referendum

    2. Zero Growth

    3. Public spending is growing not declining

    4. UK is not tax competitive for business

    5. Direct democracy versus the Political Class

    6. Printing Money

    7. Take poorest workers out of tax system altogether

    8. Bailing out the Euro

    9. Learning lessons from Iceland

    10. EU referendum again

    Mrs. Ball-Scooper ( triple flipper )s says:

    Yes, what is wrong with that ?

    worm says:

    Maybe the Socialist bandwagons have acquired a Trojan Horse.
    Data theft in a world of hacks is now commonplace.

  27. 27
    Joss Taskin says:

    Is it because Milibandwagon, Balls, Cooper et al are all just totally inept ?

  28. 28
    Rage Against the Political Elite. says:

    Punch and Judy show Carries on regardless of the economic disaster that has been fostered onto the UK PLC by the economic terrorism from Thatcher too Bliar. Tut Tut. These Politicians need to get a grip before we end up like Greece. By the Way how is the MULTI BILLION Olympics borrowing going??
    What a bunch of useless Wank-rs Get a grip before it is too late or is it already too late as we head into the abyss with Politicians heads firmly stuck up each others arses, Its probably better than the usual their fists.

  29. 29
    Narcisist says:

    Dave the most popular PM in the UK’s* History.

    * the actual use of the term UK here means, London – Westminster – Downing Street – Number 10 – Upstairs – Housing Wing – Toilet – Mirror

    What about IR35, I wonder?

    It’s always all reich for some.

    If you open up that Pandora’s Box you don’t know what Trojan horses might come jumping out.

  33. 33
    The last Quango in Paris says:

    I don’t know how the NhS can be reformed easily – as soon as it is mentioned everyone goes mad – but often it’s not good enough and it is way too stretched. Some of the Counteies best people work there but there are still people making shed loads of cash that shouldn’t be there. The Prime Minister is obviously sick of listening to leftie hysteria (like the rest of us).

  34. 34
    Seth the pig farmer says:

    So why doesn’t HMRC get stuck in. The law is the law isn’t it?

    Sorry, Silly me, my mistake, of course not.

  35. 35

    My original comment was intended as a linguistic reference, not an physiological one.

  36. 36
    Dipstick 'Dave' says:

    I think Wind Farms are such a terribly good idea!

    And I know a lot of people who agree with me! They all said so at a meeting.

  37. 37
    High Priestess says:


    My brethren will pray for your soul and goats will be sacrificed in your honour.
    All hail the mighty NHS for she was given to all so that we may be healed… eventually.

    Gordon Brown says:

    It was Bunker Mentality in my day – I never left my Bunker unless I had to! – I was busy writing my book on Courage – have you read it yet?

  40. 40
    genghiz the kahn says:

    Perhaps Deadwood has forgotten that Landsley was ambushed by Jane Piligrim – a Labour supporting, non nursing nurse.

    It is extraordinary how some of the ‘ordinary’ workers, peasants, sons of toil and their children have risen up to attack the Etonian, Bullingdon clique as out of touch and clueless, only to be shown up as paid up members or activists from Deadwood’s party. There was the ordinary kid who couldn’t do his A levels without EMA, whose mum happened to be prominent in the NUT.

    Some of these cunning stunts don’t work, particularly those when the Hunts are stunned or hoisted by their own petards.

  41. 41
    Simon says:

    Royal College of Nursing – Can’t we just have them called Nurses Union rather more accurately describe them. Drop this Royal bulls**t

  42. 42
    hands out of our fucking wallets you thieving bastards says:

    I’m old fashioned and have this quaint idea that I should keep as much of my money as possible to decide what I want to spend it on, and not leave it to some thick politicians to redistribute it according to some latest fad which will win them kudos amongst their own fuckwitted kind.

  43. 43
    Rearden says:

    Arse a silly question and you invariably get alternative answers.
    Just trying not to get behind in commenting can be difficult.

    Mine d'Boggles says:

    11. Political correctness

  45. 45
    Displaced Brummie. says:

    This is exactly why Ed M will make such a fantastic PM. (Irony alert)

  46. 46
    Gordon Brown says:

    It’s my birthday today. I am 35 again.

    Lifestyle for some.
    Life-stiles for others

  48. 48

    I thought the lowest common denominator approach might rear its ugly head.

    From my temporary bunged-up perspective – it all seems bonkers bankers bunker bunkum… Achooo

    sandy says:

    Why didn’t the bosses two hundred years ago have meetings with the Luddites first then we wouldn’t have had those fights – or those industries – or those jobs?

  54. 54
    I don't need no doctor says:

    Dum Bumkum Bunker Labour, the party of hypocrisy, denial, envy and hate.

    Agreed, and treat he BMA as just another trade union, backng it’s veted interests not the patients

    Patricia Hewitt, special adviser to private equity company Cinven, which paid £1.4bn to BUPA says:

    What NHS?

    Do you mean the English Health Service?

    You can stick that up your volksgemeinschaft.

    Same as happens at every election – the bloody government wins.

    But envy makes the bankers’ world go round – Ooo look, he’s bonus is bigger than mine. Not fair.

    deep, very deep

    but did not happen at the last election

    Desperate Dan says:

    More evidence that neither Ed nor his drug-addled henchmen are capable of forming an original thought, policy, idea or phrase.

  64. 64
    Desperate Dan says:

    And don’t forget spite, which they share with the LibDems.

    Distraught master & commander says:

    So where did Civen obtain the money to give to BUPA?

  67. 67
    Displaced Brummie. says:

    No. Haven’t read it yet. Too scared it might be shit.

  68. 68
    Evil Landlord says:

    What , again ?

  69. 69
    Displaced Brummie. says:

    But isn’t the problem that the only doctors and nurses who want to keep giving their point of view on how the service should be run are the very people who should NOT be listened to?

    Many are Pilgrims who haven’t seen a patient -or a working colleague, for that matter- in years, so have very little real idea of what is going on.

    2,000 patients die in one hospital under Labour’s careful management of the NHS? Blame the Tories!

    Or “trust me, I’m a Guardian reading doctor” Ben Goldacre, who makes the unreasonable assumption that he is somehow more important and far brighter than he really is. Plus other fools, tools and drools, who owe so much to Labour that they dare not point out that much Labour policy on healthcare really is bunkum.

    Peter Grimes says:

    Is the line a shared one with Baldwin?

  71. 71
    To clarify says:

    That’s why Dave is ignoring them all – they are simply unions with posh names who see their perks and cushy lifestyle being threatened.

  72. 72
    To clarify says:

    Also you will have to remove or discount that double EU referendum as it was Labour who promised one and then reneged. Try again, you have two spare spaces now.

  73. 73
    The Doddering Old Fart says:

    My Terrier dog bit my hand last Monday, 10am. My fault, got between him and the postman. Four nasty wounds all bleeding quite badly. Get to hospital ASAP.
    Did I get attention, did I hell. I had blood dripping on the floor, although wife had bandaged it, registered my presence and showed receptionist bleeding hand. Did I get any attention, did I hell. A bunch of tossers dressed as nurses wandering about with their heads up their own arses and didn’t give a shit about me or the problem.
    The wife phoned my GP’s surgery and she was told to get me there ASAP.
    Expert attention from the nurse and my own GP instantly.
    Opinion, keep local surgery properly staffed and in the NHS. The rest of the NHS, a lumbering cash cow. Just shut it.
    As for Millipede, thank you for keeping us informed of what a total twat he is.

    John Bercow's Bag man says:

    Has it been cleared with Cameron ? — seems to me he should be the first to decide on the nature of PMQ’s … and it’s been cleared with everybody else .

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.”
