    The Morning Star says:

    “A proposal which could mean former prime minister Tony Blair faces trial for war crimes in Scotland received MSPs’ backing today.

    The motion tabled by Independent MSP Margo MacDonald called for an amendment to the International Criminal Court (Scotland) Act 2001 making the waging of aggressive war with the intention of regime change illegal “so that Tony Blair could be brought to trial in Scotland.”

    Good Morning tory boys

    Are these the sort of people and dealings you enjoy as you government?

    Michael Gove

    Grunt Shapps

    Sacked ministers

    Are you proud of their pathetc behaviours?

    Do you really enjoy these people misusing your hard earned cash?

    Lou Scannon says:

    ‘cannot’ ? ‘Shouldn’t’, maybe and, in general, that’s how it ought to be, but Blair went to some trouble to dismantle laws that might be used against him so this is one case where we’d be fully justified in making an exception.

    Moscow Mike Handycock (Teen Fondler) says:

    No wonder the Government aren’t doing anything about animals in zoos with me backing the campaign, which I did for two reasons, the name of the kind lady asking me to, and, as part of my rehabilitation campaign so that I can start going back to Moscow again. Woe is me. Boaz

    jgm2 says:

    Tell that to the chaps who were convicted of killing Stephen Lawrence. Almost a millenium of judicial precedent tossed out the window with the repeal of ‘double jeopardy’. And applied retrospectively to boot.

    Because Stephen Lawrence is/was the most important person in the whole world, ever, and needed a millenium of judicial protection to be scrapped just to bring his killers to justice.

    The quantum world is still full of uncertainty, but at least our attempts to look at it don’t have to add as much uncertainty as we used to think. Aephraim Steinberg and team.

    @Penny Pincher

    My parents got a card for both their 60th and 70th wedding anniversaries. Both cards were both identical. Don’t think the Palace have worked out that they could avoid this by having a change interval of 8 years or so to allow existing stocks to become safely used up.

    Still, they were delighted.

    The Paragnostic says:

    There was a fantastic (in the sense of ‘full of fantasy’) programme on the BBC World Service this morning.

    “In The Balance” was the utterly oxymoronic misnomer for this piece of shameless Keynsian bollocks – a programme with less balance in its contributors could scarcely have been dreamed of.

    To discuss the influence of central banks, we had: Danny Blanchflower (communist and fool), Randall Kroszner (ex Fed, Keynsian and serial apologist for printing money) and Gabriel Stein (LSE alumnus and therefore suspect).

    A more craven bunch of so-called experts could hardly have been procured – and yet the very title of the show leads one to expect balance.

    BBC – fuck ‘em.

    Shock horror. Daily Mail comment pg 16

    “Good money after bad
    FOR the umpteenth time in recent months, the BBC was yesterday breathlessly hailing the latest miracle cure for the eurozone’s sovereign debt crisis.

    But, as with the previous sticking-plaster bailouts, the European Central Bank’s decision to buy ‘unlimited’ amounts of short-term government debt fails to offer any long-term solution to the fatal flaws inherent within the one-size-fits-all euro.

    Rather, as Bundesbank president Jens Weidmann observed, the ECB’s bond-buying scheme is ‘tantamount to financing government by printing banknotes’.

    The day is surely approaching when even the Brussels elite will have to accept that the single currency cannot survive in its current form. In the meantime, they continue to hurl money on the fire.”

    Hurling money on the fire ….. well, no, it doesn’t just vanish in a puff of smoke (although I suppose you could argue that that’s where it came from). No, it’s going to line someone’s pockets. We need to figure out exactly who that is and how they benefit from everyone else’s misery and lock them up for good.

    Thanks for that. I was about to state something similar but didn’t know the exact legislation. Is this the one where Gordon Brown changed all the rules on Inheritance Tax planning and then backdated them, or was that another one?

    Then of course there was the War Crimes Act (1991?) where we tried to take responsibility for trying people who were not British citizens when the alleged offence took place, and for offences that happened in foreign countries fifty years earlier.

    My mother went to a circus when she was a kid where the lion tamer got his hand bitten off. Now that’s real entertainment. Better than the one that I went to at Ayr Racecourse with the non-performing pig (bacon butties were very cheap the next day, apparently); or the one at King’s Park, Bournemouth, that had no amimals at all, but did have a few boring clowns and some acrobats who used safety nets.

    Expat Geordie says:

    There is a dopy bird at work who’s other half changed his name to James Bond by deed pole. They live in a house called Goldeneye and when their first sprog was born called him, yes, you guessed it, James Bond.

    Personally, I think that you are right about Dalton being the best Bond, although my personal preference for the new Bond at the time was Sam Neill. Second best probably Daniel Craig (although I would have preferred Damien Lewis) and third, George Lazenby. As for Connery, Moore and Brosnan – load of shite the lot of them.

    My bet is that the third runway won’t be built, and Goldsmith won’t have to resign. Nor will Boris Island be built. There will be years of wrangling, and nothing will come of it.

    By the way, Boris Island is a lousy idea. It would be sited in the middle of a huge population of water birds, which spend the winter there. Building in this place would involve tearing up the agreement by which it is a Special Protection Area, and driving out tens or hundreds of thousands of birds. That is something that most readers here probably won’t care about much (though I care a lot), but there is more to it than that. Building an airport in the middle of a large bird colony is just bloody silly. Think of what a couple of Canada geese did to the US Airways Airbus 320 in January 2009 — you know, the one that lost both engines and crash-landed in the Hudson.

    They don’t need to be on the island. They are all down the mudflats on both sides of the estuary, in tens of thousands. From a human point of view it’s a crap polluted wasteland, as you say. But for birds, that means there are plenty of insects and small invertebrates. Building an airport will drive some of them away, yes, but many more will remain to be sucked into engines. If you don’t think that bird strike is a serious problem for airports, you delude yourself. Even inland airports such as Heathrow have major problems with large gulls.

    For those of you who see BJ as a viable alternative remember and never forget that he was sacked from a newspaper for falsifying a quote, that he was sacked from a minor shadow post for lying to his party leader about an affair he was having, that he is a serial adulterer, that he described , after meeting with the Murdochs , that hacking was a load of codswallop, that he showed his judgment and disdain by inviting Rupert Murdoch to watch the Olympics swimming with him even as the mogul’s journalists were being arrested and charged in droves for what? Yup ‘hacking’.
    BJ is a proven liar, a proven cheat, a proven lazy person who is now bored with the Olympic stage since there is nowhere for him to strut, swing or boogie anymore so will do the job part time.
    He is a mendacious, untrustworthy, pompous, danger us. Let him wither on the vine.

    Most of us no longer care that others hurt, just so long as we are doing OK.
    Many of us have become actively spiteful and malicious, seeking to persecute the sick, the unemployed, the disabled, by supporting government moves to reduce them to desperate poverty.

    Barney Grumble

    When the EU Project began after WWII as a part of The Marshall Plan, and right through to 1989, Europe was a USA bulwark against statism in the guise of the USSR and Warsaw Pact. It was a Libertarian project. Even so, European nations had far more mixed economies in the 60s through 80s than today. Now it has members of the Warsaw Pact as members, and since 1989 it seems to have moved increasingly towards an ever more rapacious Libertarianism which now threatens to destroy it, much as it seems to have economically and socially destroyed the USA. Either that or it’s been a very elaborate contrivance.

    If the ECB is used to establish fiscal union, it is hard to see how matters can possibly get any better as it will surely just become even more like the USA and probably worse. Is the USA economically and socially improving? Is it still respected across the world? No. Why would Europe improve under the same system? Is it not more likely that Europe’s resources would just be siphoned off to the USA, thus making Europe even less competitive? Does anyone believe that those in the USA have Europe’s interests at heart? They just seem to care about their own interests. That’s in the nature of Libertarianism surely?

  345. 345
    Barney Grumble says:

    This has been an essentially cosmetic re-arrangement of the same toxic cocktail.

    The rehabilitation of David Laws demonstrates that morality is not a factor that influences selection. The retention of ‘George’ Osborne shows that the complete absence of credibilty is not grounds for dismissal. The appointment of Jeremy Misprint as Health Secretary – with his track record of support for witchdoctor cures – shows that professional credibility counts for nothing. Owen Patterson shows that ‘the greenest government ever’ was just a cynical advertising slogan.

    We had very low expectations indeed of Cameron’s reshuffle. In that respect alone he did not disappoint.

    It’s non ending. Now we have the new idiot in charge of the TUC (some bint) claiming that ‘wimmin’ have been hard done by in this recession.

    That would be the public sector that employs 70% women and 30% men? Women are hard done by in this recession even though 600,000 more men are unemployed than women?

    How are women hard done by when some 40 years after the equal opps bills were passed men still have to work to 65 and women only 60.

    The NHS spends the bulk of its budget on female healthcare and I can’t remember the last time NICE refused a treatment for breast or cervical cancer, yet they never seen to approve anything for prostate cancer (even though prostate cancer kills more men than breast cancer kills women)

    I wonder if the new boss of the TUC will be asking why many primary schools don’t have a single male teacher, never mind 50% male staff.

    The new boss of the TUC is also welcome to demand 50% of the dead soldiers returning from Afghanistan are also women.

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
