    It was so confusing having two Dave’s on the ballot paper.

    Should be much easier next time. I don’t imagine there will be more than one Boris on the ticket.

  7. 7
    CHRIST ON A BIKE! says:

    Shouldn’t they read
    “Don’t blame me. I voted for D.D. and if he’d become leader, Brown would have called the election in 2007 and won an extra 2 years in power, with Cameron then becoming leader and then prime minister in 2012 anyway”

    Or something like that?

  15. 15
    I hate Parliament so much it hurts says:

    Maybe, but I suspect if Cameron had lost the leadership election in 2005, he’d have had a hissy fit and quit Parliament by the time Brown called a General Election in 2007.

    Since when to young, ambitious career politicians like Cameron, quit politics becuase they lose a leadership bid. They just wait for the next opportunity whilst garnering more support.

    It is not the noun shelves that are supposed to be idiomatic but the verb flying.

    Bottler Brown bottled the election on the strength of a single well-received conference speech by Cameron. Ahahahahaha. I know it. You know it. He knows it. Everybody knows it.

    Thank God. Otherwise we would only just have got shot of the Maximum Imbecile and public sector employment would now be up to 7 million with 300bn quid annual deficits. But there’d be ‘growth’. Oh aye. Lots of ‘growth’. Weimar style ‘growth’.

    That said. Who is to say that David Davis would not have given a similar conference speech and caused the Imbecile to bottle his election?

  39. 39

    Because he’d have been getting crucified by the BBC, for 2 years, as a, Silver-haired, swivel eyed right-winger (a narrative they were starting when he looked like being favourite to win) I’m not saying he’d have lost by much. We know the polls, as usual, were massively exagerating Labour’s lead (that is why private polling led Brown to bottle it), due to reflecting media narrative and Ming Campbell wasn’t exactly a vote winner for LDs, which would have allowed the Conservatives to take back many seats off the Lib Dems in England.

    DD wouldn’t have done, because if being a silver-haired right-winger is fvcking you with the floating vote (that’t right, the REAL floating vote, not some imagined UKRAP voter) you don’t climb into bed with Farage’s ilk. But i’m sure Ming and McRuin would have been most grateful for the extra votes that would have given them.

    Does a second attempt to sell an item suggest that it sold really well (or indeed flew off the proverbial shelves) after the first advert or does it suggest something else. I was more impressed with Plaid Cymru announcing plans for a high employment Welsh economy with reduced reliance on oil, than I am with this suggestion.
    Gordon’s book sold so well that they were able to eventually let it go for a pound.

    “I, on the other hand, have been striving for twenty years with a minimum of intervention and without destroying our production, to arrive at a new Socialist order in Germany which not only eliminates unemployment but also permits the worker to receive an ever greater share of the fruits of his labor.

    The success of this policy of economic and social reconstruction of our people, which by systematically eliminating differences of rank and class, has a true peoples’ community as the final aim of the world.”
    — Vladimir Lenin

    Living in the grinding poverty of the slums, Vladimir soon realized that a wholesome InterNational pride could not be aroused in men who lacked the necessities of life. Hence his interest in social betterment, which ultimately brought the word ‘Socialist’ into the name of his party. Like William Morris, he turned to Socialism as a necessary preliminary to the dissemination of his great idea. Morris became a Socialist, bent on improving the living conditions of the English masses, in order to make them listen to his artistic gospel. Lenin became a Socialist (in his sense of the word) so that the masses would listen to his gospel of InterNationalism.
    — Nicolas Fairweather, The Atlantic, March 1932

    “We have backed the wrong horse in Spain. We would have done better to back the Republicans. They represent the people. We could always have converted these socialists into good InterNational Socialists later. The people around Franco are all reactionary clerics, aristocrats, and moneybags — they’ve nothing in common with us at all!”

    But NOW, fucking NOW soldiers are dying in Afghanistan so fucking Muslim bints can play fucking Cricket, FUCKING CRICKET.

    It is true that in Parliament there is no one with a single fucking braincell.

She prefers the soft left side of the bed, of course. And then she just loves to repeat everything…..

    I bet Dirty Des wished he could have published them himself. In The Star of course as he couldn’t upset all the Little Englanders who read The Express. Does it still sell over 4 million copies a day? Sorry that was 50 years ago, it’s just over 500,000 now. Sad to see how a once great newspaper has declined. Still what hasn’t declined, except for the number of ethnics in Londistan.

    Aunty Matter says:

    Rowenna Davis (fit but dim Labour bint) just said that we can’t leave Afghanistan as we owe it to the dead soldiers to stay.

    1. Those that are dead we can’t help but we can keep soldiers alive by getting the fuck out and that’s all I’m bothered about.

    2. If miss fit but dim thinks we should stay so Afghan bitches get to play Cricket perhaps Ms Davis would like to go down to the army careers office and sign up for the army? Oh hang on, she’s a woman so there’s no chance of her being in a position to be shot at or blown up.

    Aunty Matter says:

    Labour were better at the spin, the Tories are so useless, every fucking night the BBC are attacking every single policy, it’s unrelenting.

    Gove wants to toughen up the exam system, anyone with a brain can see it’s been totally devalued, yet still the fucking BBC attack attack attack.

    If the Tories lose the next election and are out of power for another generation, they have to make it their first job if they ever get back into power to destroy the BBC, every last fucking brick and lefty twat to be gotten rid of.

    You are stating the Bleeding obvious. So why is Dave pandering to every loony lefty think tank on the planet? He only gets one bite at the bullet to do the right thing. If he did he may just turn it all around and get a second term but as it is he is just sinking into the middle ground.

    Mrs T and Mr Blair did not mess about with pandering to minority twattery, they got on with doing the right thing.

    Nice little moment for Paxman in education bit “but what we have had before hasnt really been working” Gove Antagonist in chair “we acknowledge that”

    Kinda clears it all up then , education , education, education was little more that st Tone on the disco light mix desk then ,with a new drum and base mantra ,boom bomm checku checku grade inflation …. I perhaps am rather desmayed that the roll call of Gove antagonists so far have all this glib beaurocratic role , saying hes wrong whilst not admitting they said nowt whilst wonk was enlarging is the worst form of franchise . Understanding is different to mere recall , but then understanding requires things that we dont exam in a paper for .

    Stephanie Flanders has had a bit of stick , for glossy EU hyperbole however her new venture into the masters of money , had some nice touches , westwing meets ecnomics and rather like a interesting scent , once whiffed was difficult not watch , it manged to pose some questions around that great ecnomic moment around the depression . Next week its on Hyak . Perhaps for some it wasnt the right sort of enquiry , but at least it examined an era when banks and finance behaved rather differently and the approaches to money , before the weird instruments of finance were birthed . I was thinking that the economics was easier to explain in that era as accounts were not really about risk , more about venture .
    The hoover dam had a use , it made electricity without burning coal or oil , it contributed to the economy over a long time with fairly fixed costs , Keynes ace was perhaps that insight . Hyak perhaps pondered how the delivery of wealth is plundered by beurocracy , although he is used in wealth creation arguments which appeal to me , in that I have always liked the function of capitalism to work on a small scale as it seems to make sense to me that the exchange of money for goods and services at the small level , is much less prone to the vanity of big business . Was there a hint of socialist ecnomics … I didnt notice one , perhaps a slight embrace with socialist finance , but then as Staphanine fairly pointed out it rather depends on the size of debts.
    As I see it Keynes was correct where there is elasticity in the economy , Hyak correct when there isnt , but then we really should be getting Ed Balls to inspect the barrel of loaded cannon on a special question , “does debt increase of decrease ecnomic elasticity ??” boom splat …. so long predistribution …..

    I listend to Ed Balls full Union tet a tet , all the way through it was like he was adressing the capulets at a wedding do , the malevolence , the hints of settling the score with those montagu wrong uns . I was more impressed by the unions ability to suck on his tripe so competantly , I mean if your a union subscriber werent you sat at home , thinking as they could hardly muster a smigen of rage for running up all the debt and basically getting the ecnonomy into so much of a mess , erm hold on a moment arnt we kind in the crap because of what labour did …. mmmm….. still never let a good question get in the way of a meaningless political argument that hides who fault it was eh.

    So are there socialists who dont think debts are good idea (tumble weed blows across platform) … mm suppose that would require them to think or perhaps even answer a question without inserting , class .

    What I perhaps an quietly enjoying in the ecnomic dust up , is precarious the master of wonks lives have become , I mean the bon amiee of ecnomic spin had to end at some point , but its the fact that socialist ones are still around I like .Yes the ones who deployed the purile progressive wonk still get to be on telly , perhaps with this gosh gee , well I ddint know that , kind of expression , as though rummaging for intellectual innocence and it was some office of wonk that had been briefing them .

    The ecnomic tale is perhaps not quite concluded , In America Keynes has run , The EU has had a sort of Keynes confined to Germany and Benelux , except they spent like you would want to in downturn , but in good times , resulting in no stability when the downturn happened , nor any fed type structure to manage it . but there we are again , just why are financial crisis different to economy ones …. perhaps its because you cant clear them up quick enough when they overwhelm the size of your clear up shovell .
    The socialising of debt will prove to have been a wasters charter , but ive always felt that about socislist ecnomics , once you understand it as it completely misunderstands the simpler aspects of taxation , agreeing to make a contribution is different to a protection racket , no matter what scale .

    I dont go that far , still think he has made some impact on politics , and done some good things in the circumstances and events . I just have worked out that he was a dovetail to post Blair , I suppose most governments are dovetails of previous ones . We are in the dis ease of Blairism , very painful it is too , as we were clearly wronged as nation by his economics . He might work it out , but all the fun will go out of it when the dear unions ruin this years efforts at recovery , havent they heard of Nero …

    It also rather proves Gove’s point given the number of spelling errors in the “rant” that educational standards have beeen allowed to fall to a deplorable level in this country(or he was too “pissed” to use his “spellchecker” ?).

    What Labour cannot answer adequately is that “IF exam results have improved year on year in Britain then why has the UK continued to fall in the league tables when compared to other countries ?” You should write no more than 3,000 words and you have 2 hours to answer. Marks will be deducted for spelling mistakes,bad grammar and punctuation errors….You may now start.

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.”
