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…

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

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

        The more strikes, the better.

          Our members are mugs-we still get paid.

          • Horsetraders says:

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

          • 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.

          • 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.

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

    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

    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…

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

    “New regime at CCHQ”…LOL

    When will Warsi be hitting the streets of Corby.

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

    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.

    Today:

    “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

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

      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.

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

    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.

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

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

        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.

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

    johnwardmedway says:

    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…

    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 !

    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.

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.”
