Mission Im-Boris-able

This is what warmed the crowds up before Boris’ barnstorming performance at the ConservativeHome rally on Monday:

This message will self-destruct in 2020…

        All of you can see how fast Osborne is paying UK’s maxed out credit card. Looks like it will be £1.1bn before the end of today.

            Its better to give them the money to come and do something rather than stay at home and watch TV or play video game like our PM Dave.

          • jgm2 says:


            No. It isn’t better to give them money to ‘come and do something’. That’s what got us into this mess.

            Why doesn’t this government stop giving any benefits?

            Osborne is borrowing at a faster rate than Brown. Osborne will end up borrowing more in 4 years than what Brown did in 13 years.

          • jgm2 says:

            Osborne is borrowing at a slower rate than Balls and has at least started to reduce the deficit.

            Comedy Gold averaging the Maximum Imbecile’s borrowing over 13 years to improve his ‘rate’. It’s like claiming Winston Churchill is still alive because, on average, since 1874, he’s been alive more often than not.

            Last year defect was reduced this year it has gone up by 25% and going up and up.

          • jgm2 says:

            Up by 25% since April or up 25% in a single month?

            Whichever it is all it is telling us is that we are still spending money we don’t have.

            The solution is very simple. Stop spending so much money.

          • Anonymous says:

            jgm2 says:

            25% this year as more and more are claiming some form of benefits and as tax revenue is falling.

            If government stops benefits it can save £180bn plus every year.

          • jgm2 says:

            Tax revenue is falling? How is that possible? The rich are still being taxed at 50%?

            Perhaps we should tax the rich at 75% like the French. That’s bound to work.

          • Greychatter says:

            The Government have reduced the DEFICIT left by Labour, 152Billion (the difference between Government spending and Tax receipts) by 25%. Probably now around 124 Billion


            When Tax receipts are more than Government spending, the total country DEBT (ONE something Trillion, built up over Decades) will start to be reduced.

            Look at the above link and compare the different in Deficit between Labour and Tory spending over the years and the Surplus Gordon got the benefit of from Ken Clarke. Before Gordon went wild.

        He’s a fucking star.

          That’s how secure bank accounts are. The only people who can’t get do anything are the named account holders.

          Same with passports. Legit travellers are treated like Carlos the Jackal but that 15 year old lass can travel on her boyfriends wife’s.

          • annette curton says:

            As far as this Country is concerned they might just as well do away with passports altogether, all they do now is give the bearer a supposed legitimacy that they no longer possess.

            I’m sorry I cant give you that information until you tell me your eighteen digit code.

          • Old Tory Bigot says:


            I found my old blue passport the other day. It expired many years ago but I kept it for the many stamps of happy travels long ago and for the image of a rather good-looking young chap in the little photo.

            It said BRITISH PASSPORT on its dark navy, stiff board covers. It looked like the sort of document James Bond would be happy to carry across international borders.

            I compared it to my flimsy little red ‘EU’ passport, out of which stared the haggard old git I occasionally glimpse in the shaving mirror (but who is not me) and wondered where all the glory had gone.

          Like BOE printing money?

          • jgm2 says:

            Let’s cut the horseshit about the BOE printing money. It is the government printing money. The economy is so fucked (by Labour) that the government literally cannot think of any other way of paying the public sector without simply printing the money to do so.

            This is full-on Zimbabwe economics. We are only a year or two behind Greece with this fucking insanity. Dave should have slashed public sector headcount by 20% on day one. Or given them a 20% pay cut.

            It’s the only way to balance our budget. We simply cannot afford to pay them what they were only getting anyway as a result of reckless borrowing and squandering by the Maximum Imbecile.

            If spending your way out of an economic crisis using borrowed and printed money worked then Zimbabwe would be the richest country on the planet.

          • Anonymous says:

            So you want Dave to cut 20% of Police, nurses, teachers, etc?

            Simple solution will be to stop dole rather than increase it by 6% as Dave and his mate did in the last budget.

          • jgm2 says:


            Or take a 20% pay cut. Their mor*tg*ages have been slashed to next to nothing with a 0.5% interest rate and, if we hadn’t printed so much cash just to pay them, then the pound wouldn’t have lost 25% of its value so food and fuel wouldn’t be so expensive. In other words, the majority of ‘em would be no worse off after their mo*rtg*age than they were before Brown’s economic clusterfuck eventually hit in 2007/8.

            jgm2 says:

            Are you on dole? It seems you don’t want to stop dole. It is the biggest expenditure, over £180bn a year and increasing. If UK stop it UK can pay its debt in 6 years.

          • Dick the Prick says:

            Tories aren’t Fabians you know – mass extermination, genocide and sociocide reside in the Labour Party chum(p). But yeah, reducing housing benefit, eliminating child and working tax credit and ending disability living allowance would be nice.

          • jgm2 says:

            I doubt ‘dole’ is 180bn quid a year.

            The entire ‘social security’ budget ie pensions, disabled this, disabled that, child allowance, dole, free housing, mobility vehicles, etc etc might come to 180bn quid but there is no way that just paying dole to 2.6 million (or whatever it is) is more expensive than the NHS (100bn for one million-ish employees) and the schools (half a million employees, 40bn budget) combined.

      Comedy Dave, displayed the backbone of a filleted jellyfish by not sacking him immediately.
      Par for the course in view of the fact he did not sack the ‘twee’ Jeremy Hunt who dropped his personal adviser in the proverbial. I wrote to my MP who does not dare say anything against Boy Dave and I received a very feeble reply.
      Two years ago I was in correspondence with Mitchell, an unpleasant experience, whereby he attempted to bully me into apologising to him since he claimed that I had traduced him.
      He failed miserably and I read him his fortune. He appears simply to be part of the top table *claque hoping to climb up the greasy political ladder.

Kevin Maguire on the less than electrifying Ed Miliband…

“I bet if you went into a pub tonight and started a conversation about ­politics you’d hear strong opinions. David Cameron would be out of touch and Nick Clegg despised while Nigel Farage would divide people sharply. Miliband? In a lot of boozers he’d be the fourth most interesting man in British politics.”
