    Boris plan:

    (1) receive oral relief from the female interns
    (2) start the Dave downfall programme immediately
    (3) lead the Tories by 2016.

    Can I just say if Boris does win please listen in to Radio 5 tonight with Stephen ‘fat boy’ Nolan. The guys detests Tories in that typical BBC way and he hated Boris when he last won (Nolan shouted that the Tories were using public money to buy the champers they were drinking – they were not but as we know the BBC DOES drink champers to celebrate Labour victories at our expense) and spent all night spitting hate at Tories.

    The Evening Standard claims it will be very close. I bet Boris wishes now he’d been in London during the riots.

    Enough is enough says:

    If Boris wins it’ll be despite Cameron. If he loses it’ll be because of Cameron. Boris for PM either way.

    The Torys suffered mid term blues, the Dems had the living shit kicked out of them, which is what Cameron should do to them.

    Enough of the Tail wagging the dog. It’s absolutely ridiculous that a party with a quarter of the MP’s of their partner should have close to a 50/50 split in policy. They’ve had their low tax for the poor
    so Cameron should do something right and excise all Dem policy from the queens speech.

    Cameron and Osborne, rightly, get the blame for omnishambles but the other person in the omnishambles triumvirate, Danny Alexander, gets off scot free for his part in the failure to cobble together a growth policy that works.

    The best thing about last night was that someone had projected that if current trends continue the Dems won’t exist in 2020. Fingers crossed.

    Pawn Sandwich says:

    Its not in the bag yet for Boris, looking at the 19.53 figures (with 11 of the 14 constituencies declared) – Boris is 157,000 votes ahead of Ken and there are about 270,000 second preference votes. Boris will need approx 20% of the second preference votes to win IF the last 3 constituencies return the same proportional pattern as the first 11.

    Well we all know that green votes red – so thats 72000 in bag for Ken for starters.
    Lib Dems, to be honest not sure of their second preferences.

    Looks like Boris will make it – but its not in the bag yet.

    Indeed, it’s that simple:

    Last time Blair won it for Labour, Labour polled 9.5 million. That compares to:
    -6 million in the public sector (look how they have tried to buy the electorate in Hastings by growing customs there to build a stronghold in the south-east);
    -millions on benefits or receiving substantial benefits.
    Not all of them vote Labour, but they have relatives, dependents or close friends too.

    And then as icing on the cake, Labour’s clever war weapon: postal votes!

    The “young immigrant” can’t afford it when they are only earning minimum wage. Walk round Bournemouth or Poole and you will find that most of the jobs are minimum wage, and the only people who can afford to buy houses there are “down-sizing” Londoners. The immigrants and the young locals (the ones who can be arsed to work, that is) can’t afford to buy and can only afford flat shares or HMO’s. There are areas that are almost as over-crowded as a Victorian slum.

    Minimum wage is also maximum wage in too many places. Where is the economic benefit of that? And you don’t need net immigration when you have 3 – 6 million of the indigenous population not working at all, and large numbers doing pointless jobs for the state.

    Every political party can have it’s heroes [heroines] or subsequent lame ducks.

    Well done Boris , Viva el Johnson .

    Kens speech was interesting in that it backed Ed to next election , plenty of promotion based on totally unreal sounbites and hsitorical facts about the ecnomic situation , but hey he is allowed a speech . There was that outing of “labour are back” gem , true it annoys the hell out of me , but somewhere you get the idea that they are plotting there way back to running wonk land , indeed looking at some of the non scotland results they have been beavering away whilst being fairly crap for most of time since general election , serving up the coalition to double dose of Murdochs pain . The idea that future will be labour , is symbolic of what labours last few years in office were about , to deny the true scale of what labour did and then to invent a narrative where you need labour so as you dont suffer from posh boys polices (not that labours would have been that much different) , is exactly the sort of cynical messaege that the prols pick up either side of elections . I perhaps admire the scale of the political deviousness , but it shows quite a bit of how the pros work these days .

    Perhaps the most interesting fortaste of why the libs and labour like second vote and PR systems , is the way it acts as a trawler net , casting a leftist agenda so wide , even undecided think left . Ken was of course in with a good chance on second preference votes , If you voted 1st pref for paddick you probebely put Ken as second , same for jenny , same for Sioban perhaps even Carlos . The argument on FPTP systems has always won me over on that it concentrates the mind and the person being elected , much more securely . I mean we are rightly angry about voter harvesting and postal fraud , but if you cannot see how PR systems offer soft fraud oppertunities where you can sway the dynamics . True it can work on whatever flavour of politics you are , but more often than not the amoral of left arguments play it much more to succes . I mean if Tugger Timney had stood ken would have been second preference :)

    Is Egg Milliband safe ? is an interesting question , he is riding a bit of an artificail wave , in that his thrased vote in 2008 has sprung back in part due to lib dem dessertion to labours hot tub of desires rather than a popularity vote for Ed .
    Nick Cleggs struggles have perhaps only just emerged , I have met people who beleive in lIb dem politics , true a fair number are amphorous in most conversations with no hard edges , but some are hard edged , hooked like stalkers on pecular issues , that are lefty without them realising it . They often seem like a posher version of Labour sometimes , well these sorts by the looks of things may well trun nasty at lib dem conference on Nick , the question is perhaps as ever is who will be helping them .
    The conservatives have perhaps a few matters to resolve , which will either leave Dave with no trousers and harsh wedgie , or the sort of shake up that puts most doubts about a shake out to one side . Most of all he must resolve the wonk in spending that has led to some of the deep spats , if he cannot deliver on comptence of government , he will have gone on too long with an unreal modern dream . I think autum time is a good as any for any final decison , but to say the least some of us have had to snort some pretty foreign material from what used to be known as conservative . i am forgiving the situation has been difficult and Dave has had much to contend with , the politics have been far from useual in Uk terms , and he has managed some situations and matters very conservative and competantly .I know some blame the lib dems , but Dave has uttered some of the things of his own convcition . Quite wether steve hilton or sending Francis Maude off has given him some better insight , is a question only he himself can answer.
    we are certainly into some new politics , I personally do not like the look of its anti democracy and relation to freedom of moral thought , but its very powerful stuff and not much site of an urgency to consider where we have ended up , with various bad spells cast from the EU , the marxists , labour and ,divi up between the masters of wonk before the prols can have the credit enslavement , job insecurity (private sector) and brain numbing as there life .

    Other than that if between all the games of the last 20yrs, you have actually finsihed off the UK , my the lord have mercy on you , for that , it was my home and worth somthing , poets wrote about it , it was mainly well mannered and law concious and abiding , with public office meaning somthing . If all that it now means is hard porn , fast food and internet shopping and what celebs get up to , it will not be the country I remember and loved and felt free in .

    Was not Enochs other question about wether one should defend ones homeland , the most interesting one ………

    With this round of elections , it is me done , time for me to do some other things . jhn 1 vsvs 1-18 , john miltion bk2 chap 16 and of course dear St Francis of Assis

    Leveson was always a state stitch up and no more independent than all the rest of the me@ningless whitewashes and cover ups initiated by the state. Perhaps one day you may re@lise that the government manipulates every enquiry it has ever set up, for it’s own agenda. Do try to keep up.

    Abdel from Tooting says:

    I would like to congratulate Mr Johnson on becoming my new Mayor.

    I would also like to point out that I put my bins out for collection on Thursday and they are still unemptied on Saturday morning.

    Could Mr Johnson please come here to Tooting straight away and sort this out for me especially as I pay my taxes bang on time.

    If he could come with a rat man that would be good too because I have seen two large ones this morning.

    Jane Birkin from Paris says:

    I thought the only reason Boris won was because Millipede put up pensioner Livingstone against him.

    On the other hand Miilipede might have played a blinder now that Johnson has a contract until 2016.

    Cameron is going to have to stay in charge until 2015 and oh dear he just doesn’t get it.

    I would love to know the overall turnout of the voting public for Thursday seems to be no endorsements for any of the parties, gives the impression that Liebour got in by default and the uconned us were just lucky where they kept their seats.

    If Dave doesn’t start acting like a real Prime Minister in what is after all the biggest crisis in most people’s living memory and put the socialist idiots who largely created the problem back in their box, he will have single handedly presented them with the remains of the UK on a plate so that they can finish the job of wrecking the place.

A lad I was at school with (I don’t regard him as a friend but he was as honest as the day is long) was there and said that everything that The Sun reported was true, even down to the pissing on victims.

    Mr Straight Answer says:

    Those fuckwits in the Liebore party came to the conclusion that there wouldn’t be enough people paying tax and N.I. to support the pensions of an aging population. So they imported a million labour voters, it the hope that they would provide more tax revenue, but didn’t realise that:

    a) most of the would claim benefits themselves, rather than working and paying tax

    b) all of them would eventually age and claim pensions themselves.

    Err, umm, time for even more immigrants to pay for that lot. . . .

  463. 463
    Mr Straight Answer says:

    And why do Liebore constantly scream about cutting the 50% tax band to 45%, when it was at 40% for 12 years and 11 months of the 13 years of Liebore economic misrule? Brown cynically changed the 40% rate to 50% ONE MONTH before the 2010 election which he knew he was going to lose. What a tosser.

He’s almost the equal of the boy named girl who spouts so much drivel on Any Questions and every other time he opens his mouth that he must be a machine – a speak your weight thing that’s been programmed to pump out socialist puke for the masses. You know, the one whose daddy dropped the title but kept the privilege and the money and the coastal pile – the very same pile he wants to keep the irritating proletariat away from.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
