Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss

If Grant Shapps’ first press release is anything to go by, not much has changed in the Party Chairman’s office over at CCHQ. Tory spinners are keen to point out that he has been kicking some arse in his first few days. Unhappy with the thumb-twiddling Corby campaign that he has inherited, the new Chairman has been sending out overly optimistic memos to all approved candidates compelling them to come and meet him on the front-line this weekend. “He’s not giving them much of a choice, it’s a clear sign of a new regime at CCHQ.” Same old lines being pumped out though…

    Steve Miliband says:

    Lots of strike threats though

    How Dim is the average Dimocrat?

    Peter Schiff goes undercover to find out…

    SP4BS says:

    I will get fooled again.

  4. 4
    EdMiliband says:

    What I say is that the letters are wrong at a time when strike threats are still going on.

    But the government has acted in a reckless and provocative manner in the way it has gone about these issues.

    etc etc etc

    V1le Labour ruined my Country says:

    The more strikes the better then they can all be sacked.

    Grant. A nice, friendly word. Signifies someone giving you money for nothing.

    Shapps. An odd word. Is it shapes or shops, twisted about? Perhaps it will become a word in its own right…

    Moussa Koussa says:

    “New regime at CCHQ”…LOL

    When will Warsi be hitting the streets of Corby.

    I didnt notice any starving people there
    Just a lot of targets

    jgm2 says:

    No need to sack ‘em. If they’re on strike then they’re not getting paid.

    The more strikes, the better.

    Mr Cat
    Im sat here with an eight thousand pound watch on my wrist (I have others) with Gubbmint money in my account and I intend to get more of it thank you
    It beggars belief

    SP4BS says:

    Makes me think of strong alcoholic dr*nks made from peculiar fruit. And waking up in a pile of my own vomit in austria.

  13. 13

    You recognise then, that Corby is a foreign country?

  14. 14
    Beast says:

    Are there any really tall buildings?

    All we have to do is tell the local Imman that she is a whore and he will do the job

    Gonk says:

    Grant. Rather too friendly really. Rename himself something tougher. How about Clint, or Shep. That’s it. ‘Shep Shapps’

    Hugh Mungo Grant says:

    Why has this man been given a surname for a Christian name?

  17. 17
    Moussa Koussa says:

    Remember back in late 2010, when Dave’s Cockalition slashed the governments advertising and marketing budget. I distinctly remember Guido and his Neo Nuts congratulating Call Me Dave on this pronouncement.


    “The government looks set to increase the amount it spends on advertising and PR to help it sell NHS changes and other policies to the public.
    Next year’s marketing budget is £285m, according to Cabinet Office figures”.

    Like trying to polish a turd for £285m

    Question mark at the end of a sentence beginning with ‘When’, please.

    Don't Menschonit says:

    Can’t see the point of the Conservatives putting up a candidate in Corby. They are certain to come last anyway.

  20. 20
    Gonk says:

    You really must try harder to make it look like your own work.

  21. 21
    Butch Milliband says:

    Mr Shapps should be congratulated on his fresh start in his new job.

    However he should remember that shooting a lame duck like Baroness Warsi out of the sky is a relatively easy target.

    He must remember this in the weeks to come.

    Wotta Tossa says:

    Nah, don’t remember any of that. Next ?!

    Jimmy says:

    “Same old lines being pumped out though…”

    Why are you complaining to us? Ask them to give you something better.

    Get the coffees in, geek. No sugar for me, I’m sweet enough as it is.

    So the NHS is a tu­rd, Shitferbrains ?

    Why are you here reading it ?

    Moussa Koussa says:

    errrrrrr…..”NHS changes” are the tu*rd. Neo Nut

    Union bosses says:

    Our members are mugs-we still get paid.

    smoggie says:

    Warsi is right about Miliband though. He really should stop taking the Unite hush money.

    Pub isn’t open yet ?

  32. 32
    jgm2 says:

    Nah. It’s a by-election – there’ll be dozens of ‘Christian alliance against windfarms’ and ‘Alliance for keeping St James’ School Open’ types.

    Luckily for the T*ries.

  33. 33
    Horsetraders says:

    Unite strikers get paid by their union. Luckily I was on holiday and got two payments!

  34. 34
    smoggie says:

    Sorting out Labour’s crap isn’t a t­urd. And you’re still Shitferbrains.

    Give the fellow a chance to put his own stamp on things (which he will), and allow a while for extant messages and the like to be put out as no doubt previously scheduled.

    Take it from someone with experience of taking over a job from someone else…

    Particularly worrying given that the evening started at a boozer just off the Strand….

    Doctor Nick says:

    FFS TAT! Have a lie down. You’re making even less sense than usual.
    Why don’t you buy yourself a pasty in celebration of less tax being taken for schools ‘n ‘ospitals and statues to Lenin.

  38. 38
    smoggie says:

    Miliband and the union godfathers get their hands in the cookie jar first. If there’s owt left the members might get minimum wage for a few weeks.

    Dave "Butch" Cameron says:

    I’m so terribly sorry for referring to our Chairman as Grant Schnapps.

    I really do have to come off the sauce !

  41. 41
    jgm2 says:

    I can’t help thinking that the Unions are missing a trick here. The NHS, and all its staff, are in their pockets so surely the best way to embarrass the T*ries would be to declare every medical event an ‘emergency’ thus meaning everybody had to work masses of overtime clearing waiting lists, working double shifts etc etc.

    The result would be that the waiting lists get cleared (hurray – everybody happy, positive headlines etc etc) PLUS (from Labour and the Union’s point of view) there’d be a massive budget shortfall as all this overtime had to be paid for. So they’d be able to go on about how ‘austerity’ wasn’t working because look, there’s a massive budget shortfall.

    Instead of which the thick Hunts are going to go on strike thus cutting the deficit and generating negative headlines as operations are delayed and folk inevitably die just because they fancy some extra money.

    They are so fucking stupid these unions. Cameron must pray every night and thank God for such stupid enemies.

    Moussa Koussa says:

    North Herefordshire MP Bill Wiggin has resigned today as a whip. The Neo Nut has declined to explain the reasons behind his decision. This follows the departure of Mid Worcestershire MP Peter Luff from the Ministry of Defence this week. He also declined to give a reason for his departure. Mongo Mencsh about to emigrate; while Zac , the golden locked floppy hair, has threatened to resign his seat.

    Ships – Rats – Leaving.

    The Relaunch is going well.

    As I said earlier, Monica is going to vote Republican as the Democrats left a nasty taste in her mouth.

    The Met Office spokesbod has suggested Cold Schnapps. Hope that helps.

    and, just for the record, the word is Imam.

    ho hum says:

    Still talking out of your molAsses, Ed?

  47. 47
    ho hum says:

    … something none of us has ever done…

    Norman Stanley Fletcher says:

    With the public sector being so inefficient, will we notice the difference?

    Venu says:

    the tories must stop giving our cash to unelected quangoes and business magnates in order to diminish further our pathetic democracy

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.”
