Flashback: Ken Can’t Hide His Lying Eyes

The old ones are always the best. In a week where Ken Livingstone’s integrity and honesty has fallen somewhat short, Guido was reminded of one of the most blatant examples of dishonesty displayed by the former Mayor. When asked about his age and health by Total PoliticsKen claimed “I still don’t need glasses”. Really?

            Labour troll my arse! I don’t doubt that Labour would sign us up to this nonsense as well but you’d expect the Tories to hold the nation’s pursestrings just that little bit tighter.

            Believe it or not anonymous I worked for the Health service for 10 years after qualifying spending as much time fighting for patients to get their required treatment while being opposed by some jumped up Socialist bureaucrat refusing it.
            All commiserations for the state you find yourselves in today. Unfortunately the hard choices required to sort out your present problems that would return preferential treatment to residents is being diluted by the LibDem voice in the Coalition.

            Dear Annoyingmouse

            Who gave these fuckers a free rein to enter the country in the first place.

            Ed Balls at the treasury told Gordon who told Tony that GDP can only expand by either efficiency or population increase. Seeing as industry was already squeaking with efficiency, the only way to increase GDP was to expand the population with an undisclosed open door policy.

    “i think we should question how someone with links to the met got a horse”

    It was abit of low point for Tom , had he got out of the chair , phoned the met or any number of forces that have police horses , he would have anyone who can offer the suitable level of care , is elleigble for home a retrired police horse . At somthing like £150 a week for livery its hardly somthing most people could manage . To suggest it has been some sort of gift for wrong doings , isnt just factually wrong , its the sort of oppertune in correctness that some reporters are on the wire for .

They had seven years grace I think it was to prepare, but Labour thought that this island wasn’t crowded enough already, the wankers. Tony McNulty, who was immigration minister at the time, said he did not expect more than 13,600 incomers in the first year. I think it turned out to be more like 500,000. You could not make it up.
