            This poll shows hardly any difference between an upper class twit and an upper class twit. And Bojo’s honeymoon Olympics is still not over. Who’d athought it? Is it the end of silly season yet?

          • UKIP.i.am.legend says:

            ” The latest ICM ‘Wisdom Index’ survey for The Sunday Telegraph – in which voters are asked to predict the result of the next general election – puts Labour on 38 per cent, seven points ahead of the Tories on 31 per cent, with the Liberal Democrats on 17 per cent.

            The totals are unchanged from last month for all three main parties – suggesting none of them has in any way benefited from the successes of Great Britain’s athletes at the Olympics despite high-profile appearances at several events by leading politicians.

            Asked to predict the general election result if Boris replaced Mr Cameron as Tory leader, the Conservative total rose by one point to 32 per cent with Labour falling by the same amount to 37 per cent.

            Ed Miliband would see his party’s lead cut to five points – but the findings suggest Mr Johnson is a long way from being seen a saviour who would be certain lead the Tories to a Commons majority in 2015.

            In another reality check for the London Mayor, he is ranked below Mr Cameron, and on the same level as Mr Miliband, when voters are asked who would make the best prime minister. “

          • Marion the cat says:

            At least the poll may shut up some of the anti Boris whingers who keep claiming he is a London phenomena only. No. we take national politics seriously here in the Midlands, its not all Brummies and Yam Yams here.
            BTW, a UKIP vote isn’t wasted sending a message to Dave and his cronies if they lose to Ed anyway – which they probably will. What a disaster that will be, at least Ed wouldn’t be electable for a second term if we have a good argument against. That ain’t traitor Dave who will have his feet under a Brussels desk by then.

          UKIP, is the only choice, the Conservative Party has let this Country down, Cameron is obviously being told what to do by the New World Order which is why he will not give the British People a referendum on Europe and will not stop immigration, he is a puppet, a thick one at that which is why they ensured he got the job.

      The last thing Boris should do is be leader for the next election. The Tories are going to lose it by a country mile and it would be better for Boris that Dave and George get all the blame. The election after that is the one for Boris to go for once the two Eds have screwed up.

        Actually, he’s competing at Watkins Glen, NY, in a NASCAR race.
        But to anyone who follows the world of motorsport, the comparison is most apt, as he is possibly the biggest diva in the game today, the shining example of someone who has been riding ONE championship season (2004) for all it was worth, and has been knocking about ever since. He has even been overtaken in the self-absorption entitlement sweepstakes by his kid brother (a better DR!VER, as it happens), and that really took some doing.
        Sort of the American car racing version of the Milibands, you might say, if were an uncharitable sort.

          *laughs at last point*

          Self-absorption has reached levels in life that one would not have thought possible just a decade or so ago. Narcissism, solipsism and sophistry are the currency of the age.

          To be frank, I had never heard of Kurt Busch before you mentioned him, not being an aficionado, and I was immediately struck by the facial similarity which you pointed out. Frightening.

          But one way of looking at motor sports is the aspect of travelling at a crazy speed to get nowhere…

          • Tay King-dePisse says:

            The looks of a David Cameron.
            The career arc of a David Miliband.
            Sure, he’s a prat, but what did he do to deserve that double whammy?

            And as far as motorsport goes, it IS a mad dash to get nowhere, but the point is to do it faster than anyone else, for which you are paid the big spondulix, which fact justifies the starting and finishing all at the same place, when, if you really want to get down to cases, the only thing you have really accomplished for all that, is to abuse your engine and dent your bodywork. I am sure I could derive a life lesson from that, if I were pushed.

          • Cash helps of course. But beyond that it is nothing.

            …something, nothing. ‘Twas mine, ’tis his and has been slave to thousands…

            Problem is identifying what satisfies after obtaining sufficient of that?

            Knowledge? Understanding? Travel? Learning? Tolerance? Love? All of these and more?

    It’s a yougov poll – it was ‘commissioned’ [that's a nice fat fee £££ that yougove get] by the Scum – Mr leader being one Rupert.

    What are the numbers of people polled?

    So Rupee now controls Cameron and Bojo. Just like he controlled Bliar and Brown.

    During the reign of terror 1997 – 2010; many senior Tories (Remember they were in opposition at the time to Rupee’s Blair & Brown boys) were informed of numerous and serious issues which ‘shined lights’ into the abuse of our Parliament – by the overarching interference of one Rupert Murdoch.

    Did the Tories – scream out at Rupee? – Why no they did not – because they had to ‘wait their turn’, ‘be nice to Rupee’ and then when the time was right Rupee abandoned his Labour ship and jumped aboard the Tory ship.

    Owen Patterson – NI Minister is one such Tory who is hiding lots of little secrets. And his former PPS is Conor Burns who himself is hiding lots of little secrets. But hey that’s not for just now.

    As for Nadhim Zahawi, Stephan Shakespeare, Peter Kellner and Mr Humphries – what little secrets does Mr Humphries hide while he was taking the Rupee coin as a Times commentator?

    They could be more open and more transparent – but they’re not going to be.

    What would make me vote Tory at the next election?

    Certainly not a leader who stands at the dispatch box and says “decent hard working people”. For the unemployed, those who have lost their jobs through government polices, etc, are all decent people. Some may be a bit lost but being unemployed and unable to work, far less work hard, does not make you not decent.

    Certainly not for a leader who has allegedly said that what some may call austerity he may call efficiency. Such extremist views do not sit well with me.

    Any leader who wants my vote will have to show that they can:-

    1. Think outside the box.
    2. Not destroy the social fabric of this nation
    3. Be inspiring
    4. Understand a lot about what life is like for most people.
    5. Preferably not be a career politician.
    6. Learn from the lessons of history and not repeat mistakes

    I am struggling to think of one.

    Out of Boris or Cameron, I would probably go Boris as at least he shows a human side, but as I don’t know his policies that may not win it [if he is likely to destroy and marginalise more people than Cameron forget it].

    If it weren’t for the simple fact that I do genuinely believe that it is in our long term interests to stay in the EU, I would most probably vote UKIP, as I like Farage. I disagree with a lot of what he says, but equally I do see a lot of sense in many of his speeches. And he cares passionately.

    With the Lib Dems seemingly more worried about lords reform than the marginalisation of minorities and the increasing social destitution of British people, and with Labour not seeming to have learnt any lessons on how to inspire, it does make me wonder.

    So give me a Farage who wants in the EU, but one which is more transparent, accountable and follows the will of the people. Oh and who isn’t daft enough to think that you can change everything in a few years and make a success of it. Doh!

    In short give me a man from the street, who has an understanding of economics, accounting, unemployment, having kids, being in business, an employee, is willing to rock the boat, who has a proven record of inspiring others and finding solutions to issues, etc. They would make a great leader. Not many about though.

      1. Think outside the box.

      OK. Our way of life is ultimately unsustainable and, whether it be in the next few decades or several centuries hence, something will have to give, big time.
      Whichever it be, there will be immeasurable human suffering involved as resources become depleted under the heaving mass of ever-hungry consumers.
      The planet’s human population will top-out as death rates begin to rise exponentially in much the same way birth rates have in the last two hundred years.
      The Great God, technology, does not, and cannot, come to mankind’s rescue. The envelope has been pushed too far.
      The concepts of politics, economics, religion, modern medicine, even civilization have been discarded as the irrelevance they ultimately were and long-forgotten by the starving masses as they seek to eke out a meager existence on what is left of The Earth, before rushing back to their caves to watch historic episodes of The X-Factor, which play on a twenty-four loop: the only respite from the horizon-to-horizon scenes of misery.
      Whether this inevitable scenario occurs suddenly (the camel’s back theory) or more gradually is anyone’s guess but Mother Earth will have the last laugh.

    Anyone interested in my free market views may be interested in this response I made on facebook to an American cousin. It is relevant to what our government are doing.

    Aidan you tease!!

    Ah Milton Friedman, first studied him over 2 decades ago when I did my Economics degree. Now this may surprise you Aidan:-

    I used to be a paid up member of the Adam Smith Institute and I proudly wore the very same tie that Milton was wearing in that film.

    I then came to realise that the free market does, in reality, result in social costs that, to me, are unacceptable. Milton talks about greed, but it goes far deeper than that at least on this side of the pond. Egos; being afraid to stand up against more powerful people; revenge (one of our elected government leaders recently tweeted that the Tories must take revenge against the Lib-Dems [they are in government as a coalition]). When revenge enters the equation society falls apart. The Tories are the free market party, yet revenge is acceptable?

    I then realised that all societies go through a process of evolution, and Europe went through this (obviously) from an earlier starting point that the US. We had our free market industrial revolution, and through the unacceptable social cost we evolved out of it. At the moment we have just sunk into a non sustainable comfort zone, we just need to refind the correct balance. Sadly my government seems intent on failing to learn the lessons of history in going far to fast for what the social fabric of society can withstand. (Mind you compared with southern Europe they are doing ok).

    If the human race were more evolved as a species, so that we were not ruled by our base natures, then free market economics would work much better. But the reality is we are not, we are still in puberty, from bullying in the playground, to waging war on other nations. Once we can sort out the negatives of human nature better, then I may well rejoin the adam smith institute. In the meantime I will remain a liberal democrat.

    At the moment, in the current European crisis and arguably your own debt crisis, I think that Milton is wrong, in that printing sufficient money to repay all government debt in full would be a good thing. But it would need to be controlled so that it wasn’t spent on anything else. And an eye kept for the law of unintended consequences and inflation, currency etc. But at a few computer keystrokes your government and European debt could be repaid in full. A fresh start with balanced budgets. Debts repaid in full. It is a one off solution which could work, if implemented properly. But human nature, greed etc would want to dip into the pot for this and that as well, which is where it could go haywire.

    Hope you are well by the way.

    Best

      Stewart – you have been quite, quite ‘indoctrinated’ into the ‘Economics’ world – Your degree and being of the Adam Smith Institute – means that you have been Institutionalised – into their false world of Economics.

      No Economics degree holding bloke; who would also call himself an economics expert from time to time – is ever going to rationally take a look at the world of Economics – from ‘outside of the box’ and admit that its all one great load of cobblers.

      There are no real and true debts [Eurozone and further afield] – they are a great illusion designed to keep the masses suppressed and paying through their noses 24/7 – to keep political pygmies in the opulent positions they front – for the banksters.

        Expat Geordie says:

        Wrong BW. I have a degree in economics, probably gained at the same time as Stewart Edwards, and even as I was studying it I came to realise that it was a false science. Economists are doomed to make the same mistakes over and over again because too few of them study economic history. The Euro is a classic example of an avoidable mistake that could have been prevented by reading a history book.

        • 503
          Blowing Whistles says:

          It depends upon which history books you have read. Technically you’ve read ‘a history book’. I have cross read at least 100.

          • Expat Geordie says:

            Actually BW, as an economics graduate I don’t have to read a history book. I did do British Economic History as a first year option, which required me to read a few, but the problem was that it was an OPTION, not mandatory.

            Getting an A-Level in History (British and European, 18th and 19th Century) back in the 1980′s, before grade inflation had really kicked in, means that I have read quite a lot of history books, especially since history, any history, is an interest of mine. However you weren’t to know that.

            My point was, as an economics graduate looking from inside the box, I could see that it was all a load of bollocks when I was studying the subject. Unfortunately economics has a great term, ceteris paribus, which means that you are allowed to ignore reality when constructing a theory.

        Yes, if we refer back to Zeb’s 2009 “budgeting”, he said the Olympics would cost £2billion, with an additional £9.2billion to build certain Olympic-related stuff, namely the stadium and everything else that was needed to stage the Olympics.

        Therefore, if we were able to check Zeb’s budget for the closing ceremony, it would probably say, “50 pence (plus about £250million for various essential related bits and bobs).”

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
