Afternoon Reshuffle Latest
Harvey, Burstow and Teather Out

As reported last night LibDem health minister Paul Burstow has been sacked:

Nick Harvey has announced he is leaving as Armed Forces minister, with the MoD now turning entirely Tory. Norman Lamb gets the health job he has always wanted, while Jo Swinson replaces him at BIS. Sarah Teather is leaving the government to fight for her seat. She’s not laughing now…

Meanwhile the first meeting of Dave’s new cabinet will be held tomorrow afternoon. Pull up some extra chairs…

    It’s good to see Gove still left in place to continue the good work but bad news that both Pickles is still in local government where he has not made a fantastic impression and that Warsi is well still there.

    If there are going to be few more ministers in the cabinet I assume that means public spending will increase alongside more borrowing and more debt.

    Moussa Koussa says:

    LOL…you mean the Gimp who has in two years alienated every single parent and teacher in the land. He is universally despised on the ground. Liked by the Tory grandees, but that is to be expected from people who have never had a sense of reality.

    The Free school nonsense is a failure, less than 70 exist, and most of them are either former Independent schools who are now getting state cash, or tiny one class schools for ultra faith loons.

    The academy programme is in disarray, and exam results have caused outcry.

    Furthermore, he is one embarrassing plonker when he speaks, the public whine whether he is on TV or radio. If you think the Gimp is your savour, you have lost the plot.

    Is that it then? Cameron shouldn’t have bothered with the re-shuffle as we seem to be getting more of the same wet tossers we had before.

    This tells you Cameron isn’t bothered about going for a second term in power and he’ll be solely responsible for subjecting us to another term of “Hard Labour” in 2015.

    To paraphrase Henry the Second ” IS ONE WHO WILL RID US OF THIS TURBULENT TOSSER?”

    All politicians are psychopaths says:

    When Michael Gove and Toby Young talked about Free Schools I wonder where they got their gall from, as that’s all that’s talking. Free Schools will be allowed to select their intakes we are told, and then they’ll be saying that they’re wonderful teaching environments. It’s like saying that if one can attract everyone over 7′ tall to your basket ball team you’ll have a great basket ball training environment! We truly live in a mad country ‘run by’ mad-hatters, and there’s no effective treatment.

    Reshuffle (noun)

    (1) an empty fanfare sounded to announce the decision to fill the same sewer using a slightly different set of anuses;
    (2) a sliding-tile puzzle operated by a charlatan for the benefit of frauds, to which there is no satisfactory solution.

    That’s right.

    In the 50s, 60s or 70s people were aware of quite a large number of politicians because most of them believed in something and made a difference, so a reshuffle actually meant something.

    Now they’re all the same and thieiving c’unts only looking out for themselves and their rich mates so no-one gives a shit

    Is there no chance Cameron could hold together a minority government? The Great Salmondo manages it in the land of the hairy kneed unpleasure loving sugar dependent fat barstewards in the North. surely even Dave nice but dim could do it too. Boot the Lube-dems and have an actual bona fide Tory government.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
