      I am sure Jihad Ken will express his concern for the human rights of the Islamoracist that put a bullet into a little girls head in Toulouse. Or the Asian rape gangs spreading the word. Or the honour killers and decapitators bringing peace to our world from Nigeria to Syria.

      Make London a Beacon for Islam Ken and a death camp for the rest of us…….

      Neither will poor J*e*w*s, rich Christians, poor Christians, rich agnostics, poor agnostics etc etc. The only people who will be (postal) voting for Ken will be poor bl*ck people and the Religion of pe*ace. But only on the understanding that their ‘special’ status be rewarded with plenty of grants and made-up jobs.

      Has this man learned nothing from the events in France. He seems very keen to demonise Jewish people. Toulouse was the result of nasty political hatemongering and it resulted in a tragic murder of an innocent child. Can’t he be referred to the police for such deliberate racist statements?

      Spin again.

      I was wondering why Ken should be “on and on” about jwish people like this, when in fact he was in a meeting with labour supporters, who were indeed discussing demographics and voting. Rather than it just popping out of his head at random when at a newt meeting or talking about the weather.

      The link is probably modded, so theres a * where there should be e:

        The link works. And you’re right, he said it in context. But say it he certainly did. For a professional politician he’s incredibly clumsy. I’m wondering if his

      One day UK muslims will start their own political party. At that point the left will suddenly wake up as they discover that they can no longer rely on their votes. At that point immigration will become a bad thing. But by then it will be too late to do anything.

      Lets see if Wavy Dave makes another missed own goal; like he did with leaving the poison dwarf as speaker; by allowing Helen Boarden, currently head of BBC news, take over from Thompson as DG.
      She has brought out a constant drip feed of left wing biased news that she would, if they were alive, get citations from Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Brezshnev, and Andrypov.
      To make her, or any current BBC insider, Director General would enabke a slow but certain death by a thousand cuts for the Conservatives.
      Don’t hold your breath.

    Pardon you little rat? When I say something happens, it happens.

    ”A gunman suspected of killing seven people in the name of al-Qaeda, including three children at a school, said on Wednesday he would hand himself over to police to end an hours-long siege in southwestern France.

    About 300 police, some in bullet-proof body armor, cordoned off an area surrounding a four-storey house in a leafy suburb of the city of Toulouse where the 24-year-old M u s l i m man, identified as Mohamed Merah, was holed up on the ground floor.”

          You can’t leave us, the BBC, out of this elite listing.
          We have scores of high profile “celebrities” who do tax avoidance, and we pay them through their “companies”.
          The should not hold BBC positions but this can be got over as it has for John Simpson, BBC senior foreign correspondent.
          Because of Red Ken’s incompetence we have been forced to produce radio and TV coverage to show that this practice, common during the Labour government, is now endemic, so that when the S**t hits the fan, we can declare that we never knew, and Thompson et al did not tell us this.

    Lord Wreath says:

    Mark Thompson’s departure from the BBC is a good opportunity for the Biased Broadcasting to show the public how UNbiased it really is. The Governors’ shortlist for a new DG was instantly leaked and has been circulating in the Ministry of Troof and Davey’s Wine Bar, White City:
    Mehdi Hasan
    Neil Kinnock
    Ken Livingstone (if he fails to beat Boris)
    Peter Mandleson
    Andrew Marr
    Seumas Milne
    Alan Yentob

    Some showy wimmin’s names have been added to the list for balance but they are unlikely to be taken very seriously:
    Reeta Chakrabarti
    Shami Chakrabarti
    Glenda Jackson
    Vanessa Redgrave

      But what about the (ex) Prime Monster His Left Dis-honourable Gordon Brown? It is the Brown Broadcasting Corporation after all!

      What better way to ensure a good, unbiased English state media than to let a mad communist jock run it? I can see the farming specials running every Sunday. Lots of tractors. Big, Red, Tractors. Ummmmm.

        Ghost of Tony Bliar. says:

        How can you miss me out?
        After all it was named Blair’s Broadcasting Corporation far earlier and longer than Brown’s or Ball’s.
        Now it is the “Bring Back Communism” insititution and is up for grabs.
        To keep it in the traditional far left communist system we need an insider like Helen Boarden or a loony like Kinnock or Living stone? in charge.

        When are Red Ed’s SPADS going to tell him that shouting and whinging hysterically like a petulant child is NOT reasoned debate. This prick really hasn’t got a clue when it comes to grown up debate – it’s not even good enough for sixth form debating societies.

        I didn’t see Ed making any decent points about the budget, just generalisations, misinformed opinion, outright lies, piss-poor “jokes” and outright insults. He spent more time giving his perverse version of recent political history and supposed quotes from Georgie, Davey and Cleggie than the current budget proposals.

        What a total wanker!

        Miliband did though give Cameron a real savaging on the the delay in paying Mrs Kaur of 24 Acacia Avenue’s compensation.

        Those three questions caught Cameron off guard – shameful that our Prime Minister hasn’t signed off the invoices personally!

    • 139
      Gooey Blob says:

      He’s giving pantomime a bad name.

      I knew should have put some money on Ed using the phrase “too far, too fast”. Another of Balls’ silly slogans. The sooner Balls is off Labour’s front bench, the sooner Labour can actually see the light and actually put some sensible economic ideas together.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
