    Thomas Pascoe says:

    Andrew Mitchell’s sense of entitlement is truly shocking

    “Politicians such as Andrew Mitchell can lose the Conservatives the next election. The image of the party is now once again that of the condescending toff. The police, apparently, are butlers who ought to devote themselves to opening disagreeable gates.

    The soul of the Conservative Party belongs to people of humble origins who want to better themselves.

    My father and my uncle signed up to become police officers shortly after leaving school. They are patriotic men who wanted to serve. I find it infuriating that their fellow officers are maligned by a man born with every advantage who has proved himself incapable of serving anybody but himself.”

    nellnewman says:

    One can’t help thinking that there are a lot of similarities between the flawed personalities of mitt romney and our very own foot in the mouth merchant andrew mitchell.

    romney highly unlikely to win now. He has made a total hash of his election bid.

  9. 9
    Lord Copplebottom says:

    I think Obama has got the election in the bag this year, not because he is better than Romney but because Romney is so dreadful.

    Basically he’s going to win by default.

    Couldn’t the police officer and mitchell both make sworn statements as to what was said? I suspect most people have formed an opinion.dave really can pick ‘em can’t he? That shot of “I knew nothing about it” HUNT, “jerrycan” MAUDE and andy “THE PLEB” MITCHELL in Downing Street today is a classic!

    I think it’s time for the general public to start laying floral tributes at the Downing Street gates.

    ‘A copper was sworn at here. You are in our thoughts always.’

    ‘You’ll never walk alone.’

    ‘There but for the grace of God…’

    etc etc.

    Proof positive that a week is a long time in politics. At the beginning of the week plod are a bunch of c*unts for mass altering of witness statements and covering up their culpability in the death of 96 Liverpool supporters.

    By the middle of the week they’re suddenly a bunch of heroes because a couple of ‘em got shot.

    By the end of the week you can’t even swear at the fuckers. The poor darlings.

    Westminster Gossip says:

    Romney has made a mess of his campaign; saying 47% of Americans are on welfare and refuse to take responsibility for their own lives!! He jumps in, firing shots without taking aim, he is fast becoming a lost cause to the GOP…

    The campaign should be fought on the economy; 16 Trillion in debt, bigger government v less government, outsourcing of US jobs to the third world, a political landscape fashioned not by political principle but playing to voter minorities!

    Our modern politicians lack vision and strategic thinking, it’s all about sound bite and gloss. Kids of today want Homer Simson and Boris to become our leaders, they are too lazy to engage with the important issues of the day, they want a diet of empty celebrity and coke to guide their politics, shame on us, we should have taught them better!!!

    Oxenstierna’s letter to his son in 1648 asking ‘ Do you know my son with how little wisdom the world is governed’? had never been more apt than it is today.

    It is not about left or right or being progressive, whatever that means?? It’s about jobs, prosperity and enlightenment. Of course we all want to help those who cannot help themselves but, the big but is, it’s the middle class who pick up the bill. We are entitled to ask as Kennedy did, ask not what your country can do for you but what can you do for your country. We have created a western civilisation who simply find I easier to take than give.

    I want everyone to have a shot for themselves, playing by the same rules irrespective of you left or right leanings. We want less politics and more strategic thinking, less talk and more sustained policies!

    Given the probability that we are going to have a middle east war within the next few months, Obama and Miliband don’t seem to fit the bill at all.

    Given the possibility that it will escalate into a regional war, or even worse, then no liberal/socialist approach is going to stand the pace or strike fear into the hearts of the problem makers.

    Remembering back to the Second World War and the cost of all the delay, first of the British and then, whilst we were actually at war, of the Americans* then the harder we respond initially, the less likely it is to be prolonged.

    *Remember Pearl Harbour.

  54. 54
    Forkbender says:

    I think we need a government which can decide a policy to get the country out of the mess we are in, a well thought out policy, using joined up thinking so that every conceivable adverse effect of the parts of the policy have been worked out and not as seems to done nowadays with someone saying, “I have a great idea” and it going through on the nod and whoopse. This goes for Liebore as well as the Cons.

  55. 55

    No chance

    I hope above hope I am wrong. I would dearly love to be called a fool in the light of events. I could take that. But it is no good ignoring a looming crisis. Unfortunately we, as a nation, have been all too susceptible to that over the past century.

    The lower classes says:

    It is not the swearing that is damaging the Tories. It is the labeling of the working classes as Plebs which is highly toxic. Dave would be well advised to get rid of him now before it becomes impossible to de-toxify.

    It’s also escalated to the minister calling a member of the diplomatic squad a liar.

    I can’t imagine any Tory MP wants to lose his seat just to keep this idiot in a job.

    Your Friendly Neighbourhood US Election Analysis Service says:

    Rasmussen, the most accurate pollster in the US, has it 46-45 to Obama, and “Leans” (i.e., whom do you generally support, based on follow-up questions) as 49-46, also Obama. You’d think if Super Barry-O had it in the bag, it would be a lot wider of a lead. Mostly it seems that the US voters think that Obama’s no bargain, but they don’t seem to want to take a chance on electing someone who they fear might possibly be even worse. As it stands, Obama’s lead is by no means insurmountable, and he app*ears not to be building on it very much. A more important question, considering the separation of powers of the American system, is whether the Republicans can take the Senate and completely control Congress– that’s a bit of a tall order at this point. And a really interesting question is whether there will be a Presidential “undervote,” i.e., more votes will be cast for the “down-ballot” races (Senate in 30-odd states, the whole House of Representatives, whole State legislatures) than for the Presidential race (but presumably not more votes than there are registered voters!), with voters saying, screw ‘em both, but I still want to see my guys control Congress or the State Capitol. There’s more to the US Election results than whether the Muzzie or the Mormon gets in.

    nellnewman says:

    Why is it highly toxic to be labelled a pleb? the meaning of which is

    “the common people; the populace; ”

    I for one am perfectly happy to class myself as a member of the common people.

    What was really offensive about andrew mitchell’s remarks was firstly his flawed assumption that he also is not a member of this common people to which we all belong and secondly his assertion that the police should ‘know their place’ which suggests that it’s somewhere beneath his level.

    The man is an idiot.

    I think SC the biggest change from the last 2 world wars, which were economic in nature ie countries trying to grab land and resources is that wars now are turning towards attempts for ‘religious’ ascendancy.

    Curiously, nell, I am less convinced by the religious aspects of conflict. I think that mostly (but not always) stand as a proxy for some other reason. As you have pointed towards it, one may describe it as economic. So it was always thus. Envy, jealousy and greed govern human affairs. Shakespeare knew this.

    The copper is probably shitting himself now for spilling the beans to a reporter. I would wager that he was just a bit pissed off had a bit of a moan and thought nothing more about it, not realising that this would be a massive story.

    In short coppers, servicemen, firemen, nurses, pen pushers etc are not allowed to speak to the press without their superior officer’s permission.

I have been reading about the collapse of the subject/object distinction in eastern philosophy, something that even Wittgenstein may have believed in himself from an early age*, and it does not stand up on that basis either.

    Saffron says:

    Farage love him or loathe him talks a lot of sense in that he catches the mood of the British public over this EUSSR unelected rabble of ex communists.
    Barrosso- believed in Mao.
    Ashton – ex CND lets embrace the russians.
    Rumpy Pumpy,who the hell is he?.
    Ein Grosser Frau Merkel- a product of Eastern Germany Stasi and all that that meant.
    Cammoran/Osborne a couple of toffee nosed assholes who are frankly clueless and fortune hunters.
    On the other side we have the liebour lot in hock to the union destroyers who frankly are leading red ed to their crap agenda.
    Look at the union leadership:-
    Bob Crow,don’t make me laugh
    Prentice,another on the make joke
    Serwotka, another joke on the make
    The liverpool joke,can,t remember what his name is ,but BA debacle.
    This country can well do without these kinds of ass holes.
    It srikes me that this country is on the decline due to the actions of various parts of the political chancers of this country who have allowed and planned to sink this country into the hellhole it has become.
    My first statement was to say that Farage love him or loathe him,he is one guy saying it as it is.
    As far as I can see he is the only guy who is spelling out to us as to what this EUSSR really means.

    BTW Wiki write-up here:

    From it you will see that it has proved controversial and I am currently in correspondence with some researchers about it because, although I have reservations, I do not think it is as dismissible as some of the quoted critics claim – slightly embarrassing as I do know and respect some of them.

    Indeed the no-ownership theory of mind is a very important hypothesis, one which I cannot readily sign up to but which I can neither dismiss out of hand.

    On the other hand, I feel that Cornish said one or two intemperate things that were intended to attract attention rather than seek truth, the old problem of getting published…

    And why were sections “CENSORED in UK and Europe”?

    Perhaps one of the most offensive things that I have ever seen was when Jack Straw was at an event in Derby, and some of the local muzzies shouted at him that he shouldn’t be there as he was in a “Muslim area”!

    Problem with Obama is that while he is the American version of Tony Bliar, his first term record is far worse than Bliars (whose first term was his best by a long way).
    Americans, thank god, are not like us Brits and have far less patience with underperforming Presidents, especially if it hits their pockets.
    Romney coming out with his tax returns has given him a better chance to show how lousy the Democrats are. Interestingly Obama is a millionaire now and earns some $75k per month on the side. Not much take on this on our side of the pond.
    My bet is that Obama will get in by a whisker, which the BBC and Labour Party will state as a landslide.

    Big Momma says:

    Judging by the comments this week on Afghanistan from Liebore MP’s they do not know the difference between strategic and tactical thinking.
    Forming a strategy is relatively easy – it is implementing it that is so difficult and has proven over the last 20 years and more, that our politicians’ of all parties are not up to this task.
    Not that any other country except Germany is doing much better.

  171. 171
    Pundit Too says:

    Obviously there are still Labour placemen in the police. One senior officer has now asked for Mitchell to be sacked.
    Unfortunately Liebore had 13 years to politicize the police usually at second and third levels.
    Tried it on the military but it did not work as they had no knowledge of how the military works.

    Westminster, old man, you’ve obviously fallen for the MSM bastardised version of Romney’s speech about “the 47%”. You should take the trouble to read the FULL transcript of what Romney said, not the MSM’s selectively edited Obama-friendly version.

    He actually stated that 47% of Americans are in receipt of welfare, many hating to be unemployed. He actually referred to those who choose living on benefits as a lifelong career option who would never vote for him- much like our benefit scroungers always voting Labour. For your information, a majority of those recently polled actually AGREED with Romney.

    As Emily Thornberry digs up her partys ye olde favourite on the back of alleged *&^3!%$£ plebs , and no political commentator has dared to venture their reputation in praising Nick Cleggs sorry vid , we perhaps have one of those moments where things change because of somthing trivial , I mean we have been watching it wheeze , gurgle and bulge like an internal exothermic reaction , but no one has been sure where it would blow . The labour party have opted for the oppertune stab and poison ,but sorry Nick has come back with his worn out dog chew of mansion tax , we now have trouble tat treasury on energy and elderly care . Ed Balls didnt even rise above the parapet on borrowing stats as his supporting evidence has turned into unuseable compost , not that his party has ever produced a forcast let alone even been allowed to sign off the toilet cleaning with any trust they have done a honest job.

    A Modest Proposal says:

    One way to avoid a repetition of the kind of unseamly misunderstandings which can occur when polticians decide to ride bikes without their chaufeurs following is to bring back the sedan chair. Those in the cabinet can be awarded velevet purple curtains and gold sashes for thier staff while those holding the rank of privy councillor can have the privilege of fitting out thier chaps in silver buckles and yellow and blue striped hose. They will then be instantly recognizable by the livery of their footmen and can carry on reading their important papers behind a curtain of a thickness to match their intellect. This will have the added bonus of meaning they will not have to caste their eyes upon the fucking plebs as they go about their business in Whitehall and surrounding streets on behalf of Her Majesty.

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.”
