Another Day, Another Labour Peer Raging at Ken

First Sugar, then Winston and now Lord Desai:

“London is changing so fast that I wish the Labour Party had found a better candidate… London does need a dynamic, innovative Mayor — there is no doubt about that. Ken just does not have it. It’s a lack of new ideas. When I see him talking, he is still talking about what he did before. He’s still living in the past.”

Labour MPs are silent about Ken today, in fact the only person cheer-leading seems to be George Galloway. Not long now…

      I had the hope that the 2010 Liberal surge would announce the demise of the Labour party, but the recent emasculation of the Conservative party has turned dream into nightmare.
      “If only Labour had picked a semi credible candidate!”
      Surely the question should be -If God or the government had only granted us a credible electorate without the postal vote.
      Until the returning officers insist that each voter receiving a dollop of indelible ink on the voting finger that has made it’s mark, the system will remain an insecure lottery.

        This is why I didn’t bother voting in 2010. What’s the point, when my vote counts for nothing as it’s over-ridden by the 20 non-existent postal-voting Muslims ‘living’ in the house across the road?

        With a bit of luck the loons will fix the postal ballot so badly that the election would be declared null and void.Something in the realm of 120% of total electorate voting for Ken would probable do.

      Lying for Ken? says:

      Ooops, posted this on the wrong (FT) thread. Now in the right place

      People who may have caught Polly’s latest twaddle and ‘enthusiastic’ support for Ken might be startled by a number of highly Hari-esq claims she makes. It’s worth a read, albeit for a laugh.

      Buried deep in the 1000 odd comments someone takes her to task for the numbers she used to somehow correlate ESA rejections and deaths. I, though, was taken aback by the housing statistics that she uses; ‘…London has built just 56 affordable homes in the past six months…’

      Bad Boris! Incompetent Boris! is the message.

      Actually, the most recently published, six month figures show 3520 Housing Association and Local Authority housing completions in London, plus a further 4620 private Enterprise completions – some of which, no doubt will also be ‘affordable housing’. There was also a total of 6290 housing starts in the same period.

      Knowing that she picks up on posts on CiF I did ask where she got her figures from. But, rather like waiting for Ken’s accounts, there came no answer. Perhaps because I suggested that she may have used Ken’s magic calculator, she’s not talking.

      I thought that there were ethics and standards that applied to journalists and newspapers and that she shouldn’t resort to simply making things up (like Owen Jones does). I am tempted to ask whether the Guardian is a fit and proper publication if it allows this sort of thing, without sanction.

        Old Tory Bigot says:

        I have read almost everything Orwell ever penned. Some of it is tedious, repetitious and self-regarding. He is, in a sense, the ultimate Guardianista – ashamed of his own privilleged, upper middle class origins – and wishing to throw in his lot with the prolitarian underclasses.

        However. Tedious and wretchedly socialist though Orwell was, he was a prophet, and a remarkably accurate one – evern foreseeing the technologies that would ultimately enslave us and spy on us from the cradle to the grave.

        1984 and all that. When commenters mentioned that title 10 years ago we laughed and thought it a cliche.

        But now, I think Orwell has the last laugh.

    O/T The connections between Max Mosley and Labour should be investigated. Mosely funds the Kacked Off campaign and look who else involved with it – Tom Watson, Chris Bryant and John Prescott!

    Mosley also bankrolls the shyster lawyer Mark Lewis who now seems to be actively campaigning to bring down Murdoch and is just using the “clients” he represents in the hacking saga as smear fodder. He’s even been in the USA touting for anyone who thinks they may have been hacked whilst they were resident in “the land of the free”.

    Mosley seems to be as bad, if not worse than Gordon Brown in the revenge stakes. Seems he believes that Murdoch was personally responsible for his son’s suicide. Nothing to do with the shame of his father being outed as a sad, pathetic S&M geek, then? Of course, it was Murdoch’s fault that Max willingly sought out prostitutes to whip his arse for his deviant sexual gratification.

    It would be incredible given the connections between Watson and Mosley that Fatty didn’t pass on privileged information to Mosley and his legal hitman Lewis to use against Murdoch.

            Judge queries second Leveson probe
            Press Association – 1 hour 5 minutes agoEmailPrintRelated ContentView PhotoLord Justice Leveson says legal delays may scupper the planned second part of his probe into wrongdoing at News International
            The judge leading the Leveson Inquiry into media standards has suggested the planned second part of his probe – into specific allegations of wrongdoing at the News of the World – may not go ahead.

            The lengthy delay caused by the need to await the conclusion of police investigations and possible trials means that it will be “very many months, if not longer” before the second part of the inquiry can begin, said Lord Justice Leveson.

            Although he did not rule out pressing ahead as planned, he suggested that consideration should be given to the value of a second inquiry which would involve “enormous cost” to taxpayers and participants and would “trawl over” material which is many years out of date.

            In a ruling published late on Tuesday on the inquiry website, Lord Justice Leveson said he believed it was “in everyone’s interests” to allow the first part of his investigation at the Royal Courts of Justice to go “as far as it possibly can” in the hope of answering public concerns about press behaviour.

            When Prime Minister David Cameron commissioned the probe in the wake of revelations about phone-hacking at the News of the World in July 2011, he gave Lord Justice Leveson a remit to carry out an inquiry in two parts.

            The first, to start immediately, would inquire into the “culture, practices, and ethics” of the media, including contacts and relationships between the press, politicians and police, and make recommendations for a more effective policy and regulatory regime in the future.

            Only after the completion of any police investigations or trials would the judge begin the second part of the inquiry, addressing “the extent of unlawful or improper conduct within News International, other newspaper organisations and, as appropriate, other organisations within the media”, as well as allegations of corrupt payments to police and complaints about the initial police response to phone-hacking claims.

            With police currently investigating a number of individuals and no indication of whether or when any prosecutions may be brought, it is thought likely to be 18 months or longer before the second part of the inquiry can begin.

            Lord Justice Leveson stressed that the possibility that the second part of the inquiry may not go ahead has not affected his approach to the first part.

            But he added: “It is undeniably a sensible strategic consideration for those who have participated in this inquiry.”

        What’sup,Anonymong? Do you fear the truth getting out about Corrupt Labour politicians and unhinged Millionaires eaten up with vengeance getting together to destroy a perceived enemy? Don’t forget Mosley was the head of Formula 1 when his mate Bernie Ecclestone bunged New Labour a million quid to change government policy over cigarette advertising.

        It seems Twatson was judging Murdoch by Labour’s own low standards when he accused him of heading a criminal organisation (under Parliamentary privilege, of course, the fat cowardly shitstain)

        He accuses the Murdochs of being unfit to run a company because they said they were kept in the dark about NOW phone hacking yet the fat sweaty slug said he didn’t know McBride was smearing and libelling innocent people on behalf of Labour when he shared the SAME OFFICE with him.

        It just shows the criminal dishonesty of Labour politicians -but of course because they are YOUR ideological soulmates you’ll excuse them.The end justifies the means in your philosophy. Why don’t you crawl back up Twatson’s sweaty arse, you leftie turd!

    If the Labour whities hold their nose and vote for Ken then the same thing will happen. Ken knows it. Labour knows it. I know it.

    That’s why Ken has gone all-in with his ‘beacon of Islam’ rhetoric. He’s relying on the white Labour vote just holding its nose.

    Jesse Jackson, John Burris and Al Sharpton were furious!!

    They flew into LA and met with the fire chief, on camera.

    They loudly demanded to know,

    Why the Blacks, Black Muslims and Hispanics,

    All died in the fire and why only the White couple lived?

    The Fire Chief said,

    “They were at work”

    Unless he’s a she of course.

    Enough of this parochial trivia.

    What matters far more is the damage being done to the economies of Britain and Europe by the stupid EU. Unemployment at a record and raging recession. Meanwhile most other non-European countries are growing.

    What does that tell us of this idiotic experiment?

      How did the EU f.uck up the economies of the USA, Argentina, Australia, Iceland etc, etc, etc…

      Foil hats are obviously not allowed at UKIP meetings, as they clash with the swastika armbands your mum knitted for you.

      Move on, simple solutions for simpletons ONLY allowed to stop here…..

    Elderly women handing out Vote Labour leaflets at my local SE London station with no mention of him and the women themselves saying gaily: “Don’t to vote tomorrow!” They don’t answer when you enquire which candidate they are backing, taking the momentum out of the response: “I’d sooner eat shit!”

    What a joy it will be to wake up on Friday and have Boris back in office – lets hope David who backed him so courageously in the Standard today lets him implement some of his policies: an amnesty for the 2 million or so ileagals living in London, lower taxes, no cut in housing benefits, more cable cars, nostalgia busses, bikes etc etc

    Red Ken so loves digging his own grave.

    Let’s hope Red Ed Miliband doesn’t follow suit even though the only winner would be Red Ed Balls.

    That is not a labour peer in that photo.

    That is Eddie Murphy in disguise.
