He has a point…

    Didnt we used say that about Balls and Brown?

      Conversely, if Ed Balls says something is right for the UK economy, you know it’s wrong.

        I know the bedwetters like to take the piss out of CMD on account of his thinning hair. People won’t vote for a baldy apparently. But Toxic Ned looks to be turning into a bit of a slaphead too.

          He’s relying on the voters having a very short memory.

            Coalition disqiet is growing? It’s been massive for ages now.

            The only real Tory in the Dems is Clegg. The Tory backbench hates the Dems.

      Unfortunately it was like screaming in a vacuum, nobody could hear.

    Sizzla says:

    The MP might be right. But boasting about new laws that could see people sacked overnight when many are already worried about losing their job is bonkers. The presentation stinks, the people behind this need to get a grip of the story and talk of the help it could bring to small business.

    The fact that Cable and Labour are able to make the running on this story shows the mess Downing Street is in.

    Sophie says:

    Can someone remind me again why Dave has put crypto socialist Cable in charge of business?

    I suppose he has as much real world experience as Dave does.

    Vote UKIP.

      and a knob such as Davey in charge of Energy…

      "Business" Secretary My Bottom says:

      He does know how to get HMRC to waive VAT penalties in a way they refuse to do for anyone else, so he must be a very smalrt businessman indeed.

      Pundit Too says:

      Cable and Oakshot seem, and act, like a very foolish comedy act.
      Problem is they cannot act, have no great wisdom or experience, but are certainly two old men in a hurry – one toward the Lords and the other toward nirvana. If only they had both wisdom and talent.

        I heard these two pronouncing on the world at 1 today. Their arrogance was astounding ! they seem to think they are the senior partners. I think its time for David Cameron to stop being a gentleman, the Libdems are poison !

    It is surely the case that being endowed with deity nowadays is a serious disadvantage.

        Airey Belvoir says:

        The Roman Gods are to be found, bizarrely, on the Royal mint’s ‘special’ Olympic coins (Jupiter god of synchronised swimming, Diana god of judo etc etc.) As a historian pointed out, using Roman gods for a supposedly Greek event is as crass a howler as putting Allah on Christmas stamps. Jeez.

    Shut up and sit down you bald headed fuck.

    I can prove that Thatcher killed the 96 at Hillsbrough, just let me knock-up a graph.

      Ash Ken the Question says:

      Well Mrs T is the source of *all* known evil in the world/universe as we know it today, so please go ahead. Is there really no-one else who can take on the mantle of the axis of evil? Do no other names stand out over the last 50 years as being as bad?

      A mate of mine actually said how wonderful GBrown was the other day – was completely gobsmacked!

        Ken, had your mate been sectioned? If not, why not?

          Can’t possibly comment unless you vote for me as 1, 2 and 3 preference…. thank you trebor mint

      Dear Doctor

      Could you ple*se do a graph on how many times politicians lie in the space of, say, an hour? This would re*lly help me with my thesis.

      Thank you.

        Loungelizard says:

        Politicians never lie in the sense that common folk would understand. Words such as integrity, trust, belief, honesty, etc have a totally different meaning in the political world.

        • 26
          Marmite says:

          Thanks Mr Lizard. I hope you don’t mind my using that in my thesis. It seems to sum it up very nicely.

          The Tony Blair Dictionary says:

          I recall Tony Blair commenting on Blunkets resignation and saying he left office with his “integrity intact”. This was after blunkett stole some travel warrants for his mistress and having been shagging another mans wife and it was thought, getting her up the duff.

        Airey Belvoir says:


        A sure indication that a politician is about to lie is if he begins with ‘Let me be clear.”

    Backwoodsman says:

    If you want to sort out the deficit, make local Chambers of Commerce and the FSB in charge of setting civil service terms and conditions of employment.
    Easy win and the much vaunted ‘level playing field’ our political masters love to pontificate about.
    That and the 2020 30% tax proposal should do the trick and deliver a thriving economy.

    Come on, I thought it was all those dreadful lefties who were destroying the moral fibre of the country with their libertine ways… Making your fucking minds up.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
