        Goodbye Cameron
        The election has now made it quite clear that the Tories will never again have an overall majority in the House of Commons. The public have seen Cameron make numerous promises to hold a referendum on the EU only to see him call a three-line whip against it when the House of Commons debated the issue earlier.
        The public no longer trust him or the Tories and many have now decided to vote UKIP. The loss of Tory support to UKIP undermines the Tories in future marginal seats and though there may well be some who will return to the Tories at the next general election a significant number will no longer vote Tory.
        Any further promises by the Tories to hold a referendum will not alter this situation for few would believe that the Tories would honour a result that may well call for a total withdrawal.
        Furthermore the handing of billions to the IMF to help bale out the EURO (another broken promise) and the handing of money to aid nations that fund their own space programs or buy French aircraft has really took the biscuit. Not to mention the utter spineless refusal to deport terrorists for fear of upsetting the court of human rights. All this plus the Granny-tax the Pasty-tax and 5p off the top tax rate whilst we have mass unemployment verges on political suicide to any sane politician. I for one will never vote for the LIBLABCON cabal ever again.
        So it’s goodbye Cameron and goodbye to any hope of a centre right government any time soon.

          1. Referendum on In/Out of the EU.

          2. Stop all immigration now.

          3. Remove all illegals immediately/stop financing the parasitic human rights appeals circus.

        Thanks Nadine, I will be in touch. Many people are congratulating the LibDems in Portsmouth for increasing their majority and are coming to see how we do it:

        http://www.portsmouth.co.uk/news/local/lib-dems-happy-but-did-politicians-fail-to-woo-voters-1-3811903

        Well the answer is simple and I have been telling the coalition, but they won’t listen to me. Success in politics in our global environment requires politicians to create liaisons between the public sector, industry, other countries such as Russia, and organised crime. Only by doing this will we politicians improve our own status both politically and financially. I have created this environment in Portsmouth and fooled the electorate in to thinking it is all being done for them, as they are mostly even thicker than me. Bring this in with all the multiple postal voting immigrants that we have deliberately brought into the city, and hey presto! Boaz.

    The Lesson unto Noo (Utterly Confused) In-Recession Cons is taken from the Book of Dave, Chapter 94 says:

    1. And it came to pass, that after many days, Dave, despiséd and dejected, returnéd unto his habitation: and the jobsworths were fearful, but durst not say.

    2. And Dave continued to hold his head in the clouds with a neck that was stiff. And Dave could not look down upon the earth, or upon the people on the earth, only those that dwelt in high places.

    3. And the people knew, and said one to another: who is that haughty tosser that seemeth so high and mighty? And Dave answereth and said: it is I, Dave the Wonderful.

    4. And the people murmered one with another. And they threw aspersions at Dave and his jobsworths and his jobsworths’ jobsworths.

    5. And lo, there came over the earth, a Star. And the name of the star was The Future. And it appeareth in the East, and stayeth right over that which is calléd: the Hall of the City.

    6. And when the people saw it, they rejoiced. But Dave and his jobsworths and his jobsworths’ jobsworths were fearful, and cried one unto another: What can this mean? And what can this betoken unto us?

    7. And Dave calléd the scribes and Wise Men, and sayeth unto them, what can this star betoken unto me? And the scribes and Wise Men answereth and said. Thou shouldest be fearful, for we have seen the Star of BoJo. And Dave, with guile and cunning in his heart, sayeth unto his jobsworths and his jobsworths’ jobsworths: calleth BoJo now, and bid him come unto me that I may worship him.

    8. But BoJo, warnéd in a dream, answereth and said, No: comest thou Dave and worship me here at the Hall of the City. And Dave, with an heavy heart, did as BoJo commandeth.

      There were 25,400 deaths caused by cold weather last winter, according to the Office for National Statistics, with most of the deceased aged 75 and over. This winter will be harder still, the convention warns. The government is cutting winter fuel allowances from £250 to £200 for those aged 60-80 and from £400 to £300 for the over 80s.

      The MP’s restaurant and bar have to be subsidised somehow, after all.

      Remember – We’re all in it together though!

      So how many MPs will die of cold this winter?

      I suspect the figure will be 0. If there is any justice the figure should be at least 680.

      Another statistic: I hear the cops are stocking up on baton rounds. They’re gonna need them soon. Tell the MP’s we’re stocking up on lamp-posts and piano wire.

    Look, fuck all this relaunch/I feel your pain/Posh Boy/Mad Nads stuff – it’s white noise. Face facts: coalitions don’t work – they’re just a pick’n’mix of policies from a pantomime horse of a government.

    Boris isn’t PM material; funny, erudite, a wordsmith – yes. But PM – no.

    Milibandwagon’s useless – and a truly malign little shit, to boot. He hasn’t got a policy to his name, people don’t like him and he fits people’s stereotype of a slippery 4xtooo.

    The only hope Cameron has is to keep going for another couple of years, hope the economy gets better, snooker the Libs on some policy (gay windmills, or whatever) to the point where the coalition falls apart, call a snap election and make it a straight Lab-Con fight.

            Mornington Crescent, got to disagree on the Mayors point. Labour brought them in thinking just that, more jobs for the boys, etc. Then it went belly up when places that should have returned Labour mayors didn’t. London – independent (Livingstone), Middlesbrough – independent, Doncaster – English Democrats, Hartlepool – a man in a monkey outfit.

            Where the mayoral system works, they voted to keep it (Doncaster). The people who voted against elected mayors in Birmingham, Coventry, etc., were council employees, Labour party members, etc., who having seen what happen in Doncaster didn’t want to lose their jobs, influence, pensions, freebies, etc.

            Where you have an elected mayor you have direct responsibility, which is why I am surprised that Liverpool went for it without a referendum. When it all goes belly up you can’t blame “tory cuts” in a monthly glossy magazine when you are cutting frontline services whilst giving your mates £50k jobs for doing nothing. I don’t expect to see a Conservative mayor in Liverpool in four years time, but there could quite possibly be an “Independent” or an “English Democrat” one.

            Labour now see elected mayors as a Conservative ploy to cut them off at the knees and are now wishing that they had never thought of the idea.

            From the sleeve cover of “The Murdoch Archipelago”

            “Rupert Murdoch is one of the most powerful men in the world today. Through News Corporation he controls a global media empire with an unparrallelled array of assets in newspapers, television, movies and book publishing.

            Across the Anglophone world, and increasingly in Asis and Europe, he exerts an unelected political influence reckoned to outclass such predecessors as Northcliffe, Hearst and Beaverbrook – men whose activities were contained within national boundaries.

            What is the nature of Newscorp’s power, and how was it constructed? This book describes a business built on a unique capacity to collaborate with established power – whether legitimate or otherwise – while pretending to rebel against it. The origins of the technique lie in the First World War propaganda campaigns and intrigues of Rupert’s father Sir Keith Murdoch. Bruce Page analyses the son’s extension of the same essential method through Australia, Britain and the USA, showing how Murdoch’s fluid, authoritarian personal qualities have enabled him to exploit systematic weaknesses in the media systems which we rely on to safeguard liberal democracy.

            Politicians and administrators around the world stand in awe of Murdoch because he is advertised as a supreme wizard of tabloid journalism, possessing a near monopoly over mass opinion. Bruce Page shows that this is essentially a hallucination – but one which could become something unpleasantly like reality unless legislators are able to free themselves from it. This text is designed to assist them.

            Building on many years’ research and featuring previously undisclosed revelations, The Murdoch Archipelago is both a riveting psychological profile and a devastating case against the dangers of media monopoly.”

      They are picked from people who play cricket. Unlike 25 years ago when my comprehensive had a very good cricket team, most state schools no longer play cricket. Hence most modern cricketers went to public school.

      It’s the same with rugby. We didn’t play rugby at my comprehensive but one of the neighbouring ones did. It was actually the only state school in the county that did play rugby. So most rugby players are privately educated.

      South Africans care more for rugby and cricket than for football, so will use any excuse to play for other countries if they can’t get on their own national team. That is why there are so many South Africans in the Irish and Dutch cricket teams, and why these two teams are getting to be quite good.

    Liar Liar pants on fire. says:

    The Watts up with that blog has exposed Spelman as a liar. She does not need 17 inches.While we all accepted the government propaganda that there was a shortfall in rain and the South East was in drought conditions the actual figures show otherwise and rainfall has not been abnormal.

    When one reads the comments section it turns out that the problem is not enough water storage for the size opopulationon and too much abstraction from underground water reserves. In part this is down to government and water companies reluctant to build much needed reservoirs but it is also EU diktats that demand higher water prices to cut down oconsumptionon and a lowering of the carbon footprint by using cleaneundergroundnd water that requires less energy to treat than that stored in reservoirAnywaynway just forgetting the politics Spelman has in fact had her 17 inches. You Londoners should be writing to your MPs and providing them with this link. Don’t bother with the BBC, they will not want to listen to the facts and prefer to blame CAGW which they believe to be fact.

      Jamie Oliver suffers from a surfeit of ego. The worst thing the Blair government did was give him any credibility by listening to his fascist ideas on what kids should be forced to eat, just to get a cheap headline for themselves. You can’t force kids to eat stuff they don’t like. The real problem that causes obesity is the lack of exercise because modern kids only want to sit in front of their X-Boxes in their bedrooms. You only have to look at Tom Watson to see the result of that.

      Oliver is becoming a predictable bore and should be told to fill his gob with the pretentious crap he cooks.

    Despite Sir Martin Sorrell claiming he condems the “totally unacceptable” advert showing an Argentine fascist training on a British war memorial in the Falkland Islands, we have yet to hear from him what he actually intends to do about. Having provided ‘succour to the enemny’, it is about time he and his firm made amends. A few suggestions:

    The staff they employed to make and overeee this shit should be sacked. The profits his firm made should be donated to an appopriate British charity, as should a sum equivalent to all the taxes his Argentine subsidiaries have been paying to an Argentine Government which is even now busy provoking and preparing for war against the FalklandIislands.
