Harman Bashed on Bankers Tax


  1. 1
    Mine says:

    Not the first time she has had a car crash, and wont be the last.

  2. 2
    Batty hattie says:

    What a wreck!
    You know where to find me!

  3. 3
    Mooooneo says:

    One of the most thoroughly repugnant politicians of modern times. The fact that she is so high up in the Labour Party tells you all you’d ever need to know about them.

  4. 4
    Steve Miliband says:

  5. 5
    Harriet says:

    I supported the Iraq war but applauded when Ed said we were wrong to go to war, and I believe in all-women shortlists except when my husband stood for a seat. I have principles and I stand by them!

  6. 6
    Hugh G Reckshun says:

    Stupid baggage, like most of her party, she would not recognize the truth if she fell arse-over-head over it.

  7. 7
    Gordon Brown says:

    I like strawberries.

  8. 8
    Q says:

    Rule 1 – Select brain before engaging mouth

  9. 9

    That is almost too painful to watch……..

  12. 12
    les says:

    Apparently she was interviewed on the News Channel later and did have the figures to hand, she told them the bankers tax would raise £1billion – but she then got back to them to say actually that is wrong it should be £2billion!

  13. 13
    The Central Scrutinizer says:

    She clearly has no grasp on the numbers…

    Might this be because Labour politicians never have a grasp on the real numbers…? They are more concerned with spouting on about a policy which they think will win them votes from the credulous, and easily fooled.

    Banks + Tax + jobs for youngsters + 25,000 affordable houses = VOTES from mugs

    Never mind that the numbers don’t stack up. It’ll be too late for people to complian about it when it is eventually rumbled.

    Company Directors with the same intent of conning people would be barred from office. I think that MP’s (especially ministers) should be held to the same standard….

  14. 14
    Jagman 84 says:

    Sorry, I thought the bank bonus tax was being allocated to cancel third world debt? Or was that last week?

  15. 15
    Goldman Sachs advisor says:

    Sack her

  16. 16
    Mine says:

  17. 17
    Morgan Stanley advisor says:

    I agree

  18. 18
    Q says:

    Now if they introduced a W*ankers tax they might be onto something. They could raise the money just from within the shadow cabinet

  19. 19
    jgm2 says:

    She’s utterly fucking pitiful. What is it that gets into such incompetent jackasses heads when they’re young?

    When I was young I would never have presumed to tell millions of people how to live their lives and, in return, I don’t want these fuckers telling me how to live mine. But these thick c*unts seem to decide from an early age that they’re uniquely qualified to organise 60 million people’s lives. And yet Harman is so fucking stupid that any minute she might forget to breathe and pass out.

  20. 20
    Batty hattie says:

    The new figure is £100 billion

  21. 21
    Steve Miliband says:

    carefully costed policy. we will raise err to fund err

  22. 22
    Hekwality says:

    Why are the media obsessed with the amount of women displacing men in the boardroom as a measurement of how well they are doing on equality???

    The never agonise over the amount of women car mechanics and refuse collectors there are??

    They only want the good jobs it seems!!

  23. 23
    les says:


    Labour have announced that bankers will be taxed so much they will qualify for benefits.

  24. 24
    SpAd says:

    these thick c*unts seem to decide from an early age that they’re uniquely qualified to organise 60 million people’s lives

    It’s called “being a socialist”.

  25. 25
    Take Heed says:

  26. 26
    Labour's Spin Doctor says:

    We are androgynous and interchangeable in the Labour Party

    It’s called post modernism or post q u e e r theory to the specialists

    To those at Cheltenham Races, this means that we not discriminate between orifices in New Labour – they are all the same…

  27. 27
    An idiot abroad says:

    ‘Scusings me please sir This bankers’ bonus tax is also called the income tax in your country, no.

  28. 28
    jgm2 says:

    At least Vacant Ned made a joke of it. Brown would have insisted that the chap was a woman and that it was an understandable mistake or, better still, that he’d never said any such thing.

  29. 29
    nellnewman says:

    Give her a Star!

    That’s was an even better comic performance than any of gordy’s.

  30. 30
    Alan Postman says:

    Is it 6 ?

  31. 31
    Dr Freud said all women suffered from penis envy says:

    I have serious advice for the Labour Party

    They really must reduce their consumption of the white stuff

    This is all getting sewiously embarrassing

  32. 32
    Timmy Tour says:

    Is creating jobs out of a bankers bonus tax one way to get us all cheering for big bonuses for bankers?

    If bank executives don’t take up their bonuses in future, do they get condemned for costing young people jobs?

  33. 33
    sockpuppet #4 says:

    Uncosted incoherent bollocks.

    I don’t see what you’re all complaining about.

  34. 34
    Gordon Brown says:

    A 0% increase then?

  35. 35
    jgm2 says:

    They could introduce a stupidity tax. That way the socialists would pay all the tax and the T*ries would get all the free stuff.

  36. 36
    Mine says:

  37. 37
    An idiot abroad says:

    Only one slight problem with the wiring there Q old bean

  38. 38
    Alky Campbell says:

    Bring back Lord Mandelbling I say

    He can talk for hours without saying anything of interest

    Or ending up contradicting himself

    At least that foxed everyone

    Bling bling Tony sends you all his love from a six start hotel somewhere…getting filthy rich like all of us…

    He feels the young Labour crew has no idea how to run a con job like he did

  39. 39
    jgm2 says:

    He’s on a roll today.

  40. 40
    nellnewman says:

    All in all I’ve had a Great Morning watching the Labour Comedy Show.

  41. 41

    And if you don’t like my principals…. I have others.

  42. 42
    Ash Ken the Question says:

    Can anyone tell me where the line will be drawn in relation to the “bankers bonuses” that would be used to support these new – *cough* – ‘jobs’?

    It makes you wonder if all bonuses will be stripped away from those who may actually deserve them. This would include staff who are on low pay whose bonus is, in all likelihood, the only type of increase/recognition they will get for actually working hard. Not everyone earns huge amounts of dosh working for a bank.

    Shame on Ms Harperson for being caught out in outright lies though: she needs to perfect her b*llsh*tting skills for the next interview.

  43. 43

    At which point she put her little finger, reversed, to the corner of her mouth, went “MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH” and called for Mini Me.

  44. 44
    The Left Wing says:

    The NHS has thousands of women at executive level – and it isn’t at all wasteful, inefficient, overmanned, expensive, bullying or incompetent. Every organisation should be run like it.

  45. 45

    Even Labour Party Staffers know that Harman can make all the over committed, under funded, headline grabbing initiatives she likes because even her own party won’t vote for her and her tainted shadow cabinet.

    Gordon Brown is Jim Callaghan.

    That means Ed Miliband is Michael Foot with Ed Balls playing the equally flawed posh, rich public school boy Tony Benn role, but who will be the Gang of Four

    Michael Dugher will emasculate Chuka Umunna for the Neil Kinnock role

    And finally in 2028, Will Straw will assume the Tony Blair role and lead the party to a landslide victory.

  46. 46
    jgm2 says:

    I still think the T*ries should just buy some 200 quid ca*rs at auction and then every time Labour go for a policy announcement just dr*ive one into a lamp-post or a bus-shelter or some other piece of street furniture.

    Establish the ‘Labour policy car-wreck’ in the voters minds.

    Another Labour policy announcement – another c*a*r wreck.

  47. 47
    Some Geezer wot's heard that old one about figures and lies says:

    See, if Harriet Harmful just came out and said what was REALLY on her mind, “I just want to stick it to the bankers, on general principle, and I don’t care tuppence how much such a tax raises, we’ll all just do bookkeeping magic anyway, to justify the spending allegedly attributable to that rise in taxes,” I’d respect her a whole lot more.

  48. 48

    Is that like being a sociopath, but with expenses?

  49. 49
    Anonymous says:

    Sporty was always my favourite

  50. 50
    Hugh G Reckshun says:

    This week, we have had both Miliband and Livingstone falsely accuse Boris of fiddling his tax, now this bilge. Labour seem to spew the first lies that enter their head, with total disregard to facts. You would think they have learned the lesson of supporting a dead-duck leader, but apparently not.

  51. 51
    The Empty Ed and Harriet Hairbrained Shows says:

    We are much better, you must admit, than Euro a Kinnocchio and Woy Spluttersley though

    And they both got lifee peeeerages and huge public pensions for services to the country

  52. 52
    jgm2 says:

    Indeed. And it’s why the bedwetters are swooning because many of the deadweight non-jobs being purged from the public sector are/were occupied by women. Specifically women who graduated in 2001/2002 when the Maximum Imbecile began his hiring binge.

  53. 53
    The Lord 3 Jags and 3 Shags Show says:

    Your show is not a spot on mine

    The cruise boats pay me a fortune to make a fool of myself

  54. 54

    If you have ever had the pleasure of dealing with the, mainly “wimin” managed, Human Resource departments in any large company, you will understand the meaning of the words “jumped up, ill informed, irrelevant, box ticking jobsworths – by and large.

    The only difference between most of them and a notorious Cherman Chancellor, is that he took better care of his ugly moustache.

    Still, no harm done really – we’ll just march at the pace of the least qualified.

    Everyone for a prize?

  55. 55
    Jack Dromey MP says:

    “[A]ndrogynous and interchangeable…”

    You ain’t shittin’, mate.

  56. 56
    Teamster Unite Union spokesman says:

    Cut of their funding I say

    They are a disgrace to my hard working members

  57. 57
    Check Facts first says:

    Harriet bombed at this weeks PMQs as well. I don`t have much time for her but she is much better than this. She doesn`t seem to have her heart in the job anymore and one really does wonder if Labour is imploding. Miliband`s rambling “big idea,” today probably didn`t help. What a muppet he really is.

  58. 58
    Mrs Jack Dromey says:

    Is that you Jack ?

  59. 59
    jgm2 says:

    Labour seem to spew the first lies that enter their head, with total disregard to facts.

    Brown was the master of that. If you asked him the same question five minutes later he’d come up with a diametrically opposite opinion/policy. One minute it would be tax-cuts taking money out of the economy. The next it would be tax-cuts putting money into the economy.

    They’re utterly incompetent.

  60. 60
    Bent Banker says:

    Muppet did you say ?

    We have the copyright on that expression…

  61. 61
    jgm2 says:


    Red Ken true to form…

    Mr Livingstone,…. ….. He said there was a surplus of money underspent by current mayor Mr Johnson, adding: “I say it is completely unacceptable for any layer of government to be sitting on money they are not using.”

    Spend, spend, spend. No concept of a rainy day fund at all. Just like the Maximum Imbecile. Hence the shit in which the UK finds itself.

  62. 62

    And no one respects them but you muppets at Westminster and in the left wing press- it doesn’t matter what title you give them, you CANNOT polish a turd.

  63. 63
    jgm2 says:

    ‘Big idea’? Is that like the ‘Big society’?

    Fucking hell. After Cameron’s ‘Big Society’ bombed you’d think Labour would steer clear of vacuous policies like that.

    ‘No Idea’ more like.

  64. 64
    Labour's last Spin Doctor says:


    We are disposable as well…

    Like nappies…

  65. 65
    Swing Voter says:

    How much will Ed and Harriet get as severance pay when Labour’s consumption of the white stuff declines and they realise what jackasses this couple are ?

  66. 66
    over promoted twat says:

    Hasnt Mrs Dromey got the nerve to tell his wife that she is too stupid to speak in public on any subject?

  67. 67
    jgm2 says:

    And finally in 2028, Will Straw will assume the Tony Blair role and lead the party to a landslide victory.

    Hopefully he’ll have grown up by then. But will the yanks let him in on a state visit considering his drug-dealing conviction?

  68. 68
    jgm2 says:

    But who, amongst a veritable galaxy of Labour jackasses, is qualified to point the finger?

  69. 69
    R Reagan says:

    Cameron’s Big Society has just disappeared along with Blue Skies Hilton Hotel its sponsor

    But who is putting these ideas into Ed’s head anyway ?

    He was a public danger before someone started “influencing” him

    Now he is just pure looney tune

  70. 70
    jgm2 says:

    I don’t think you can entirely blame women for HR departments. In my experience the men are no better.

  71. 71
    Businessman says:

    “Vacuous policies”

    Dont’ be rude.

    These policies come from the Kennedy School at Harvard

    Japanese Patent Office says :

    May we suggest Ms Harman considers the recently approved invention of the laser activated speech preventer .

    This gadget when activated and aimed at a speaker’s mouth effectively re -routes the emitted speech back to the sender causing the sender firstly to stutter and eventually to stop talking altogether .

    Perhaps we could send the lady a complimentary sample which , subject to satisfactory performance , could well lead to a bulk order for the whole Shadow Cabinet .

    It made the BBC 5 o’clock news but only a verbal comment from one of the Beebites. It didn’t make ITV OR Channel 4 news.
    Now if that had been a coalition MP it would be 24/7 coverage.
    Is the media so biased or do they expect so little from labour.

  99. 99
    Hang The Bastards says:

    What a stupid fucking lying cow.

    If labour introduced a LYING tax and a BULLSHITTING tax they would wipe the deficit out just from contributions from themselves.

    Very assured performance by Harriet, spot on, bankers and Tory coalition on the ropes with this one, just waiting for the knock out punch.

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.”
