Labour Are On a Roll

With Miliband and Balls twisting the knife by going to Greggs for lunch, Cameron’s claims to have had a pasty at Leeds station are looking increasingly dodgy:

It’s shaping out to be a terrible week. And it’s only Wednesday…

UPDATE: PM’s spokesman says “maybe it wasn’t even Leeds”.

    The amount of free publicity Greggs are getting at the moment is priceless.

    Just had two sausage rolls from them for lunch for the princely sum of £1.

    Can’t fault them.

    Oh come on, I can’t imagine that there is nowhere to buy a pie in or very very near to Leeds railway station. Although it could be a new expression for total uselessness:

    “he couldnt find a pie shop in leeds”

    The Term “jerrycan” is offensive. As it holds the connotation that Germans are skilled manufacturers who really know how to make useful things that work and are reliable.

    I Remember You Hoo says:

    I am enjoying this, at last the twerp Cameron, is being roasted by an EU court ruling that he has no say in.
    Typically the bandwagon Ed’s are rubbing Cameron’s nose in it, while pretending they would have not done exactly the same thing, if their masters in Brussels had told them to.

    What a bunch of lying phonies, opportunists and poseurs.

    Plug! says:

    Cameron did go for a meal at the Ring o’Bells in Thornton, Bradford, on Thursday last, when he was around the area in support of the Conservative candidate in the Bradford West constituency.
    He could have done no better.
    Terrific place, and no, not toff-ee nosed at all.

    The fact that his is spun as news is evidence enough that Liebore is still in its Islington bubble. The rest of us eat at greggs because we have to, not because we are making a song and dance about slumming it.

    Greggs ddoesn’t serve Chorizo or Milano sausage rolls do es it? How distressing for the metropolitan elite to eat what we eat!

    Sandman says:

    I was living in Leeds up until August 2010. Am pretty sure that there are a couple of baked goods takeaways in Leeds station that sell some form of pasty.
    There’s also a pasty shop within spitting distance of the station.

  22. 22
    I Remember You Hoo says:

    Regressive taxation directly from the EU courts.

    The laughable thing is, idiotic Labour trolls pretending that they could or would have had the power to do anything about it either. The EU run this country boys, get used to it or get out of it. Your choice.

    sockpuppet #4 says:

    Perhaps I am naive to think that but don’t they still have independent retailers around railway stations up north? Unlike some places that seem to have all the rip-off branded bollocks that exist elsewhere, as if you were stuck in an airport or at a mway service station.
    “Cornish Bakehouse” ??? I bet they all cost 4 quid. Tossers.

    It’s been a long time since I’ve he*rd anything as pathetic as this so called pastiegate.

    The people of this country are getting like house ends, so cutting down on the pasties might help them to lose a bit of weight.

    Leiber are the dregs of humanity, they re*lly are. Millitw*t must sleep with his bedroom window open so that he can he*r when the next bandwagon is rolling past; and before I get called a toff by anonymong and his silly little side kicks, I am work in a mundane job, six days a week.

    Another Engineer says:

    I can’t remember what there is IN Leeds Station, but there is a sandwich/pastie retailer on the road underneath the railway bridge. There is a specialist Cornish pastie retailer just across the road. There are about 3 Greggs within 400 yards.

    DarkGreggs. says:

    Due to the fact that i can get a substantial lunch for the principal sum of £2.30 or even £1 from Greggs, makes it cracking value for money for us impoverished workers.

    £1 Buys you two ‘warm’ sausage rolls. Not hot.

    £1.30 buys you a cheese and bacon turnover

    This is the new low to which our national political discourse has sunk.

    The question of whether or not Cameron has been into a Greggs or eaten a pasty is not one of national importance.

    It is puerile and pathetic nonsense.

    More substantial figures than Cameron and Osborne would be able to rise above this nonsense.

    Can you imagine people caring about whether Thatcher, Callaghan, Bevin or Attlee ate at Greggs? Can you imagine anyone daring to ask them?

    We are blighted on all sides by political pygmies.

    When he said Andy Coulson was top notch I did not believe him.

    When he said he had vetoed some EU Treaty I did not believe him.

    Ah well, one less place to also discuss such things on the nation’s most trusted Labour PR agency blog:

    It’ll be good to get back to them selecting guests, rigging edits, etc to ensure the message is properly broadcast (only) to the public who has a right to know what they are told. By the medium that speaks at.. to… for us all.

    The change is, apparently, to move to those beacons of solid journalism twitter, and dumbed up social exchange, FaceBook.

    Both being free I am unsure what the £145.50 each year is now for. And as they are US-based, maybe I should pay in $?

    Anyway, no worries at all on the slide through propaganda to censorship. None at all.

    We are ‘told’ by the BBC that ‘only’ 5% of judges are ethnics and that this is too low. Really? How come ethnics only make up about 6% of the population? That seems to me about right.

    As for women, once again we have the feminist dickheads moaning about the fact only 22% of judges are women. Funny then that the same fat dyke hags don’t seem to mind that 0% of combat troops are women, or that 70% of public sector workers are women.

    Women can fuck off, the day they make up 50% of the casualties in the armed forces is the day I’ll take their whining over other jobs seriously.

    Steve Hilton must be laughing his.. er… socks… off at the moment. See what happens when he turns his back? As for Milibund, am sure he’s always going in to that shop with his best mate Ed B – a real man of the people or bandwagon. Clegg and Lib Dems are a waste of space, they sold out on their promises and will be wiped out next time round.

    What a sad country we are if this is it. Very very sad.

    You are spot on. Where the hell did the government think the ‘squeezed middle’ had been sneaking off to for lunch when no-one they wanted to impress in the office was watching? This isn’t just about truck drivers and chavs. The locations of the shops should have told them this is a popular feeding stop for people who pay their own way in life instead of putting things on expenses.

    No, He would have seen it as evidence of the dishonesty of the Prime Minister. A man willing to confabulate about a Cornish pasty to ingratiate himself with the electorate is not really the type of chap worthy of the role. Still, its too late, we are stuck with him till the next election or someone in the Tory party grows a pair.

    We’re all aware of Cameron and his Cast Iron lies
    But no one ever dreamt that he would tax our hot meat pies
    That Pickles chap and Prescott are beyond all consolation
    Both hoping that a pie-maker will make a big donation
    As Crudders says a wad of cash could get pie views on board
    Your Pies just might become TAX-FREE if you increase our hoard
    Were all in it together but the rich get the most by far
    We will tax the pasties but its tax-fee for caviar

    I’ve just walked through Leeds Station.

    There’s an M&S Food, a Sainsbury’s, a Boots with food, a ridiculously overpriced baguette place (£4.50 for a baguette? Fuck off), one coffee shop, one coffee stand also offering pastries/pasties, a Cookie outlet, a Burger King, a McDonald’s, a Subways, two pubs, two WHSmiths with appalling Sarnies, a lesser branded general offy and snacks and a brand new KFC.

    There’s also a ton of cheap eateries within two minutes walk of the station.

    It’s a shame he was just eating a pasty and not closing the station actually. The thing is a monstrosity, the worst goddamn building in the country. Ten years since they spent millions on upgrading the station by adding more concrete and despair and they’ve literally only just added seating to the concourse. There was seating before, 12 seats for one of the busiest stations in the country. Today there were 24. Was that special for the PM?

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
