Brum Says No Mayor

Despite the best efforts of his mate Tom Watson to fix it, Siôn Simon will not become Mayor of Birmingham. Brummies said no to a mayor. Siôn Simon quit Parliament in a bid to become Birmingham’s first mayor. The former Birmingham Erdington MP stood down at the general election to spend more time in the constituency and lobby for the city to adopt an elected mayor system. It has turned out to be yet another error of judgement for Siôn. Don’t be surprised if Tom Watson doesn’t try to fix up his old mate with a peerage.

            Here’s an unperturbed David Miliband taking off his egg-covered jacket with the help of an aide An unidentified man in a Southampton crowd had hit him with the egg while he was giving an interview.

            Even the professionals in the MSM can’t believe he isn’t leader.

    Its amazing how MP’s can FIX peerages for their mates
    It’s no wonder that ‘us’ ordinary people think politicians are morally bankrupt and corrupt

      Skint but happy Brummie says:

      Yes, that’s why we voted not to have yet another useless trougher on our payroll. The people of Brum are sick and tired of these parasites and seemingly endless layers of “management” in the systems. We need a lot fewer of them, not even more.

          • OED says:

            It’s pronounced ‘tit’.

          • Geoff, England (not Britain or 'United' KIngdom) says:

            It’s an alternative spelling of ‘Sean’, I think. If his parents are Liebore twats like him, they’ll have industrial quantities of pretentiousness.

        Ed had to scramble away ‘cos his moment of showboating had been poached by some wrotten mwember of thhwe pubic. Shell shocked Ed and his scrambled agents didnt catch the yolk but they’ve wreported a white man for assault and Battery! and have free range to cook up any charges. Contrary to rumours Ed’s temper had not boiled over within 3 minutes – he calmly called the egg man a chicken. Ed is unsure which came first the egg or the chicken.

    As a lifetime supporter of the Conservatives, I despair at the incompetence and arrogance of their current leadership. No guts on Europe, crime, immigration,the West Lothian Question. They f*** around with the NHS, not in their manifesto, pretend that our troops daily die or get maimed in Afghanistan for good purpose, make minor reforms of the HoL when wholesale reduction in the size of both Houses is required, fail to ignite the bonfire of the quangos, pretend to exercise a veto in Europe when they did no such thing, fail to reform the unbalanced extradition process…I could go on but it’s time for a drink. This lot are getting the hammering they deserve.

    2. If yes how did the book launch happen before judgement
    3. Is anyone aware of any holes in the space/time continuum?

Kevin Maguire on the less than electrifying Ed Miliband…

“I bet if you went into a pub tonight and started a conversation about ­politics you’d hear strong opinions. David Cameron would be out of touch and Nick Clegg despised while Nigel Farage would divide people sharply. Miliband? In a lot of boozers he’d be the fourth most interesting man in British politics.”

It’s money innit.
