        Excuse me I am not a war criminal as such. I was only following my leaders orders.

        I will admit to being a manic depressive bully with history of alcohlosism, writing pornography, earning non declared income as a gigolo, a serial liar and publisher of calumnies, a bag carrier for the late Capt Bob Maxwell and an all round piece of excrement. Ok so I debased Westminster with my toxic briefings and was alittle dishonest here and there but at heart I am just a regular guy like my ex Boss The War Criminal and killer of Dr Kelly.

It was very a effective trick when Howard used it ( I forget the question he asked the Labour benches) because quite a few instinctively raised their hands. I’m very very surprised that no one in the press has pointed this out yet–either they’re easily impressed, have decided to beef Miliband up alot, or just fed up with Osborne/Camron.

They could of course be followers of the religion of p*ace, but in this instance it doesn’t read as if they are. Owen Jones had an outburst on one of his frequent tv appearances, Question Time a couple of weeks ago, about how unfairly treated his M*zzie friends were . Dont know how the little creep works that one out. Dont even know how as practicising pooftah he feels at ease in their compnay. Strikes me that for all his superior education he’s confused and confusing. And he dares to tell the rest of us what is wrong with our society; he really is asking for the Edward 11 punishment.

          It’s laughable to watch the antics of the bbc when reporting that “six have been charged et c.,” doing everything possible to avoid reporting the ethnicity of the scum, I’m guessing they were charged on Saturday morning as another effort to keep the public from knowing another band of enrichments are showing just how much they dont respect anything in this country – except benefits, housing, etc. etc.

    Disgruntled Sheffielder says:

    For those of you interested, Owen Jones is the son of a Trotskyite union leader in Sheffield in the 80s and early 90s. At that time in Sheffield we were importing lefty twats from all over the place. The Town Hall was full of strange organisations with their own offices. There was a saying that if you wanted money off the council you set up an outfit ostensibly for minorities. A fictitious one going around at the time was ‘Black One-legged Lesbians for the Whale’ as being guaranteed to get you council funding. Our Owen’s dad was ‘employed’ in the Department for Employment and Economic Development a strange little outfit set up by the City Council in 1981 who refused to work with the Conservative Government of the day.

    INto this strange situation was little Owen born in 1984. So he has really soaked this rubbish up since he was a baby – he is thoroughly indoctrinated,
    and more to be pitied than blamed. He has shot to fame by publishing a rubbishy book which happened to coincide with the riots and so has got above himself, and the world is begining to find out what a twerp he really is.

    On the positive side though Owen always appears to be freshly washed shaven (assuming he is capable of growing a little face fungus) and with a clean shirt, whixh makes me wonder if his current fascination with the great unwashed in various non-workers parties is a bit of a blind.

    I have no doubt that he will eventually see the light and join the Layabout party to parachuted into a safe seat somewhere, hopefully not anywhere near where I live.

        Leaving aside the question of whether Trots are ‘left’ (i’d argue that they are simply authoritarian centralists), Owen Jones comes across as a liberal – to the ‘left’ of Blair for sure, but wedded to Parliamentary politics and the role of MPs acting as brokers for capital (even if that means advpcating concessions).

        Milliband is slightly to the ‘left’ of Blair, whatecer that means. But there’s nothing really to choose between him and Cameron – save for some rhetoric and a feeling that things could be a little more ‘nice’ for the plebs he knows nothing about.
