Another Guilty Man Repents

Charlie Kennedy has seen the light. In an uncharacteristically early interview on Five Live this morning he finally admitted “I was wrong about that”.

That being the €uro…

    Was he sober?

    only fucking thing Gordon got right (for the wrong reason)

      Gordon the gopher would probably have signed up if he there had not been a UK opt out agreed by the previous government. All those debates before 1997 about how the UK will be so bad off not joining euro.

      The euroland had early windfalls, becoming super rich suddenly (just like when building societies went on the stock market as banks under the nose of Gordon). The early windfalls disappear and the only people who benefited are the Chinese who can import into Europe cheaper than before, take manufacturing with them and the jobs.

      And the Germans, they are content with building cars – but how long for, when electric or hydrogen power or something other than patrol takes over, they are stuffed.

      Or put more accurately, the only mistake the Fyfeshire F*ckwit didn’t make.

    Did he understand the question? was he sober?

    If the 2 above are affirmative then he can fall on his sword safe in the knowledge that he has finally atoned for being a cnut.

    What a sad waste of a man. If he could have dealt with the drink problem, he would still be leader of the Dim Lumps, and they would be less of waste of space.

      It is odd that so many Limp Dims think that CK pissed is a better man than Thick Clegg sober.

      It is also interesting that the MSM worked so hard to keep quite about CK’s sobriety problems before the 2005 General Election. It almost looks like a conspiracy to defraud the voters.

        Really? says:

        One of many.

        It’s as though the common run of people must be kept protected from full disclosure of certain facts because, if they were more widely known, the value of being an insider would diminish..

      I think under Kennedy as well they would have been better placed to scoop up Labour voters disillusioned with Brown’s disastrous period in office.

      Just a thought – would he have jumped in with the Nasty Party in May 2010 or would he have gone with Labour?

    Kennedy only drinks to make the rest of the LibDems seem more interesting.

    And yet the Tories are about to commit billions of taxpayers money to supporting the failed Euro?

        Not really Popeye. Explanation in the course of time;politicons play the game which hides their true intentions & confuses the public until the chance of success is high.

      It’s alright we are lucky enough to have been handed a golden legacy from Gordon McRuin and so we can easily afford to piss our childrens futures away like confetti. Our errand boys have errands to run and important people want your tax money. Nothing else matters to the coalition of cnuts.

    Bongler says:

    The currency has had more crisis summits than he’s had bottles of scotch and yet it’s only now that he realises the Euro was a bad idea? He’s not exactly quick-witted, is he?

    Sadly many other Lib Dems remain intoxicated Euroholics.

      Selohesra says:

      I dont think he is accepting that euro was bad idea – just that politicians lying over the convergence criteria & that there was no need to accompany monetary union with political union was a mistake – he is still a euro fanatic at heart

      I am not claiming these expenses. I do not take my wife to Westminster just my girlfriends and the odd Hooker. Jahbulon.

    It’s a pity Paddy pantsdown isn’t a big enough man to admit the same.
    The anger he showed by being reminded of it’s failure on a recent question time
    was something to behold. Accusing people of putting words in his mouth,then doing the very same thing to Farrage in his next sentence. What a wanker.

      Sophie says:

      Pantsdown, like Clegg & Kinnock, are paid a “pension” by the EU.

      In the terms & conditions it clearly states that the pension would be forfeit if they ever speak out against the EU.

      Displaced Brummie says:

      I heard what two former Royal Marines thought about Paddy’s time as an officer in said Royal Marines.

      The word ‘caustic’ would hardly scratch the surface.

    the euro bandwagon rolls on and Dave stays silent and says we are all in this together.

    Any politician want to write on here exactly what they have dad to give up because of this financial crisis?

    I think alcoholics call it ‘a moment of clarity’. I never liked or rated this pathetic man.

    Rachel Reeve on Daily Politics. She is so out of her depth. Labour have a 6th form front bench mentality.

    polythesis says:

    In the olden days when Kennedy was someone he was often so drunk he had trouble standing up let alone getting his head around a multi nation currency union. I mean the libdems as a group are not the sharpest of tools are they but Kennedy was in a league of his own, there have been drooling vegetables in deep long term comas who have run rings around him in debates.

    Now as a non entity has been recovering(or not) alcoholic who the fcuk cares what he thinks anymore? His words carries as much weight as Benny hills who is making a come back BTW, he only has 6ft to go. The one common thread of all those political ‘heavyweights’ is that they were all wrong all the time and got more BBC air time to proclaim their stunning ignorance than all the denier sceptics put together and multiplied by 1000.

    The BBC, a place where the most ignorant know nothing puffed up morons can come together to get everything wrong, a natural home for the Kennedys of this world to proclaim their moronic stupidity.

    Wrong about that and pretty much everything else as well

    Who gives a toss what this fat drunken scottish bastard thinks? he made most policy decisions whilst pished and his speech to the scottish libdems at caird hall years ago showed his dedication to clear thinking in politics- he was absolutely blootered.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
