Ed’s Eurosceptic Lunch

Some very unlikely dining companions in PCH this week. Millionaire Miliband broke bread with Winston Churchill’s grandson Nicholas Soames, clearly a far better offer for the Tory backbencher than travelling up to Birmingham. They were later joined by Conservative rebel Charles Walker. The trio discussed the ins and outs of an EU referendum in hushed tones. Plotting? Or is this a sign of more referendum positioning from the Labour leader…

      EU is not the issue, economy is. People cannot afford to put food on the table or keep a roof over their head.

        So the fact we pay higher food prices because of the common agricultural policy and we pay £2000 per person per year to be member of the EU not the issue. Engage brain before going forward please

          If we came out will we be given this money back or will it be wasted by our government on some thing else? Or will it be used to give a tax cut to multimillioners?

          £2,000 looks very cheap compared to how much we give to councils, foreign aid, subsidies to non resident tax payers, etc.

            Milipede got married to help his election prospects, if he could that he could anything.

            CaMoron is a Europhile through and through and surrounded himself with like people. He will only go as as far as having an in or in referendum. He will use language disguise the true option to con people from what they are actually voting for.

            Milipede will have a dilemma as well, a committed Europhile. Will his in or in be better than Camoron’s?

          • DWWolds says:

            When will Labour trolls get it into their noddles that the argument about “tax cuts to multimillionaires” is completely fatuous? For 12 years and 11 months under Labour the top rate of tax was 40%. Even with the proposed cut it will be 5% higher at 45%. So, if Labour argues that gives multimillionaires a tax cut of £40,000 a year they must accept that for most of their time in office they were giving those millionaires a tax cut of £80,000 a year.

            Soames is a federalist and one of those that voted Heseltine at the first ballot.

    That fat fool Soames is my MP

    When the referendum vote came up last year I asked him to back it. He, toady that he is, sent me a central office press release and backed the government to block the referendum.

    I told him ‘thanks mate – UKIP it is then.

    I haven’t changed my mind

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
