    Our flagship proposal going into the 2015 General Election is to legalise gay marriage.

    Nothing else matters.

        The question is, how did he become a millionaire on just an MP’s salary, which incidentally, is paid for out of public money.

          The answer is none of these – after earning 100kpa for 10 years which is just spending/saving money, as his home, transport, food, drinks, entertainment, holiday travel, duckpond etc. are all supplied to an MP FOC, either from the taxpayer, or as freebees to influence his decisions.

          Yes, he has that ‘common’ touch – my life is a lot like that!

      The difference being that I would like to think that I would try and help them whereas Ed is simply looking for a vote.

        Ed not only cares about the poor he also cares about Climax Climate Change. That’s why he was Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, so he could screw energy supply in the UK and make more poor people through higher bills!

        Ed’s cunning plan is ‘more poor people’ = ‘more NuLabour votes’.

        Then when old poor people start dying from the cold he’ll blame Thatcher!

        See, he’s smart. He also knows most old people will vote against NuLabour because they can remember what the country was like before NuLabour started their population replacement plan.

        So he’ll also blame the rich old people for:
        - being rich
        - voting against NuLabour
        - not dying!

      Radio 5 Labour will be re-doubling their efforts this week in order to counter any positive effect which the Conservative Conference might have on the party’s image.

      It started with the Steven Nolan show paper review last night, where the presenter actually joined in with the Marxist bishop they regularly have on, even shouting at a caller who dared to question (both of) their relentless criticism of the government.

      The impartial BBC. Unbelievable. They do it because they know no-one has the balls to stop them.

Personally, before you attack dogs start, I could not give a toss how much you earn as far as I am concerned that’s up to you and HMRC. Everyone has a history and there will be people that remember you from school or when you were at Hull (explain to your fans where that is) be careful out there.

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
