Chuka and the Arms Dealers

He was the cuddly, smiley man of the people when he gave his speech to the conference hall in Manchester yesterday, but when the sun went down Labour delegates saw a very different side of Chuka Umunna. The two-faced shadow business secretary wooed arms dealers at a fringe event last night. Chuka even hinted that he would back the controversial BAE-EADS deal, telling representatives from the companies that: “I want to reassure you…we have an open mind. We see this very much as a national interest issue, it’s far too important to play politics”.

Chuka Umunna, friend of the man in the street. And the arms dealer…

        Chuka is a posh public school trustafarian who lives by the Mandleson Mantra ” We are extremely relaxed about (our) people getting filthy rich (at the expense of the voting plebs)”.

        Chuka is the next heir to B£iar after Call Me Dave, of course

        Well I iz not of the Caucasian descent and happen to be handicapped by having only one eye and a hook for a hand .

        I iz currently on the conveyor belt for extradition to the US of A which even its fiercest detractors do not deny is a first world country in medical and many other spheres.

        But my lawyer has come up with this wheeze saying I needs one of those MRI scans and that the only country who can give me one is …… UK !! where I reside now enjoying a welfare funded lifestyle .

        My barrister s argument will be predicated on the fact that US MRI scanners cannot ” relate ” to the topography of Middle Eastern citizens because some of their insulation is made from offal residue .

        That s his story any way and it might just buy me enough time to re apply to those no marks at ECHR to quash the whole thing and let me continue living off the munificence of the British Dept of Work and Pensions………….. Inch Allah

            Re-armament is always good business. It’s what finally pulled the US out of the Great Depression. War may not be a good thing for children and other living things, but it’s good for the bottom line. I stop short of endorsing war as the be-all and end-all, but, y’know, a LITTLE skirmish, now and then…

        The Paragnostic says:

        Every government since the 1960s has made strategic mistakes regarding technology and defence companies.

        We used to have a vibrant and diverse aircraft industry in the UK – the intervention of the state culled this sector by poor and lengthy procurement practices, and the agglomeration of the remains into what is now BAE has left us with an expensive and technically limited supplier for our commercial and defence needs.

        The same happened to the computer industry – the common factor in both aerospace and computing being Harold Wilson’s white heat of technology idea, which under the stewardship of Wedgie Benn managed to turn a 5 year lead in technology into a situation where we lag behind the US and even Israel.

        Post war consensus? Fuck it – we’d have been better off committing national hari-kiri.

      The corollary of your implication is “He’s black, ergo you may not criticise him”.

      Which position is more racist, Jimmy? Are black people like little pets, to be protected? How lucky for them, to have you fighting their corner.

      Guido has lots of targets, few of which have seen a tar brush. I’d say the fact Chukkup is a witless, hypocritical, conniving, oh-so-pretty-boy chancer on the make is more likely to elect him as an entertaining target than skin pigment levels.

      My litmus test is simpler: If Luciana Berger has fucked it, it is probably on the make and to be derided at any opportunity.

      Pogo on that, you Gramsciian fuck.

    Captain Hook's lawyer claims he needs an MRI scan says:

    I cannot believe the gall of this despicable lawyer. This country is far too soft and lenient on muzee scum. This piece of shit should have been deported years ago but thanks to a Labour government was allowed to stay here and live off benefits whilst planning our murders, and now he wants free healthcare off the NHS, even though we all know he isn’t ill. His pathetic lowlife fuckwit lawyer is playing the system to buy Captain Hook more time. Eventually time will run out for Abu Hamburger and he will be sent to where he belongs, a nice small cell in an American prison where hopefully his cellmate will take his hook and stick it where the sun don’t shine.

      Post 9/11 when the US grounded all planes for 3 or 4 days there was a measurable spike in average temperatures. The interpretation is that it is the sooty emissions from all these planes that are already dispersing the solar radiation before it reaches the lower atmosphere.

      Absent all this airline travel the planet would be considerably warmer. It seems that, far from killing the planet, it is air travel that is keeping the temperature under control. And that is why I object so strongly to the huge airline taxes in the UK. I am being taxed extra for saving the planet.

      Here I am, selflessly travelling the globe to keep the temperatures under control, and I’m being taxed extra for doing so.

          It might just be worth pointing out that there hasn’t been any global warming since 1998. See, for instance, the website of the Climatic Research Unit of the Institute of East Anglia; whereas there has been a general warming trend since around 1850, long before anthropogenic carbon dioxide reached a non-trivial level.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
