Watson Tells Labour Spinners to Brief That They Will Lose Corby

As Ed spends the afternoon in Corby – the front-line of Tory/Labour fighting in the next three months – Guido hears that Tom Watson is already playing the long game. The party campaign director has told Labour Political Advisers to stress that the party expects to lose the by-election in every conversation they have with the lobby. Speaking to Labour sources this afternoon it is clear that Labour’s routing in Bradford still haunts the party. The expectations game has begun and it’s all hands to the deck – full details in the morning.

    The first true thing Watson’s said in his life.

    Vote UKIP and teach the Liberal, Labour and Tories a lesson they won’t forget.

      The best way to frighten the lot of them is for every registered voter to go out and vote, all parties will be wetting themselves, the supermarkets and chemists will run out of disposable adult pads (large versions of kids nappies). People don’t go out to vote either because they live in areas where one party predominates so they think their vote does not count or they just cannot be bothered, these new democracies put this country to shame.

    Isn’t this also cos Labour got good coverage when it won all those seats in the local elections having kept expectations low?

    Does fatso do c*ke? He appears to have a kind of over inflated ego and an unnatural confidence that c*keheads have.

    Watson – most repugnant figure in the labour party ?
    Its a contest between the oportunistic conmen like watson and kinnochio and some of the truly deluded traitorous fuckwits like wedgewood-benn, who actually believed in implementing old style failed Soviet government.

      Not quite – I nominate Bully-Boy Balls for that accolade, with Bunter-Watson in second place.

      We’re not exactly short of candidates when we decide on the most repugnant figure in the Liebore party. You could fire a scatter gun in a room full of Liebore and struggle to hit a civilised human being.

    Nothing but football-manager spe*ak– you know, Arsonist Wenger or one of those idiots, playing Bumfuck United in the early rounds of the FA Cup: “We can’t come right out and say we will administer BU a good hiding, and I certainly don’t want my boys too overconfident so they play half-fast and injure themselves, so I’ll just say, the result on the day will be the appropriate one.” Tommy “Big Boy” Watson is just saying what any campaigner looking to flip a seat would say, it ain’t ours yet, so don’t act like it must be, or maybe our voters might not turn out to vote.

    How long would Deadwood last if Labour did manage to lose Corby?

    Once again Labour have decided to run a sibling of a former Labour MP, nothing like keeping candidate selection in the family.

    Kin deep nepotism rules, (unless you are Ed’s more famous brother).

    Here she is again excusing, justifying, supporting the vile thugs in last years riots.

    I wonder if Zoe lives anywhere near a potential riot zone. Probably not eh?

    I wonder how this oozingly smug, self-satisfied, upper-middle oxbridge cow would welcome looting and rioting on her doorstep.

    ‘it’s all hands to the deck ‘ is a mixed metaphor – you mean either ‘it’s all hands ON deck ‘ or ‘it’s all hands to THE PUMPS . . ‘

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
