Kelvin for Parliament

Kelvin MacKenzie has penned a withering attack on the main three parties in the Telegraph today, accusing George Osborne of sadistic tendencies and the government of failing to represent the south of England:

kelvin“Sick and tired of subsidising folk from the rest of the country? You belong to a select club – the club of the hard-working, clever and creative people living in London and the South East who single-handedly are giving the rest of the nation a standard of living they can’t, or won’t, create for themselves. George Osborne, the allegedly Conservative Chancellor, truly loves you. He loves squeezing the life out of your wallet. He loves your pain. And in his Autumn Statement on Wednesday he will be doing one more time what he does best – taxing the hell out of London and the South East.”

Reads like a PPB, doesn’t it? It’s no coincidence – Kelvin is calling for a new party to defend the interests of the south, even suggesting its manifesto might include home rule for London and the south-east. Needless to say his new plan has been greeted with near universal approval across the political divide. “A new dawn has broken has it not…”

    Where does the South begin?

    If they put in the infrastructure and decent schools across the whole country it wouldn’t be necessary to have the whole world crammed in to one small corner of the country.

        Kelvin MacKenzie is a self serving/publicizing odious sociopath who has made a fortune out of sensational tabloid spoutings at the expense of others.

        MacKenzie has never shown a conscience or remorse until either caught or forced by public opinion to look good (or at least better.

        Like Alistair Campbell, Nick Ferrari, Piers Morgan and Polly Toynbee, why does anybody listen to what these poison Wormtongues say at all.

        The caring side of Kelvin MacKenzie – don’t make me laugh – the only person Kelvin cares for is himself

        Your false assumption is that I am a northerner. It is in everyone s interest that London doesnt become an over-crowded cess-pit of seething humanity. The infrastructure in London is creaking as it is.

      He probably means within the confirns of the M25, that’s great why not where are they going to get their water from, they would have to build more power stations, more gas ports, lots of lovely refineries, they would have to pay over the odds for everything, the man is a strange cookie no doubt, goods do not pass through London any more.

    Thank you Kelvy baby you sir are the best recruiting Sergeant the SNP could wish for. By the way does Kelvy baby realize the reason the south is prosperous is because it is populated by Northern English Irish Scots and Europeans Innit Tho

    Sounds like a rip-off of the Northern League in Italy – Kelvin fancies a bit of bunga bunga action?

    At least he’s had a real (ish) day job vaguely away from politics, unlike most of the current crew.

      TT true and he has never had to actually run the job, maybe he thinks a sort of part time job where he can spend more time in the place journos frequent, the boozer

    Rumour has it Kelvin eats babies. He certainly had the granola munchers foaming at the mouth today.

    Despite the OTT rhetoric some interesting food for thought here. In the US there are ghost towns where once the local factory or factories closed down everyone simply upped sticks and moved on leaving a no mans land. A similar thing has happened in parts of former East Germany. In the UK we have a knack through benefits, regional subsidies, government jobs etc etc of keeping places ‘alive” long after any real reason for them being there has long since gone. Post de-industrialisation this includes huge swathes of the UK north of Watford. Of course not everyone can live in the South East and indeed the housing crisis is a fiction as there are plenty of empty streets in the North just no jobs.

        They will be doing that to keep all folks that do low paid jobs in, after all someone has to wipe their botties when they grow old. Oh just a thought, if the UK pulled out of the EU or they did, they would need a passport to move outside the M25

      There are plenty of empty rat-infested houses in the norf thanks to lard-arse Prezza. Perfectly good solid homes which could be used for all the unemployed layabouts from darn sarf..

    Bit confused of the chap. It’s true there are some cities with large immigrant populations in the North, but the vast majority of the teat suckers appear to reside in the already overcrowded South East.

    Lola says:

    One error. It’s not that the rest of the country ‘can’t or won’t create the wealth to look after themselves’, it is that they are deliberately prevented from doing so by the lefty quango-ista entitlement seeking bastards who need them as the ‘client state’. A combination of massive over-taxation, over-regulation, dependence creation and Balkanisation makes it impossible for anywhere else to create any wealth. Plus all parties and their satraps in the state bureaucracy and their fellow travellers in the banks (cheered on by the most corrupt bank of all – the Bank of England) are evry keen to retain the stream of rents and entitlements whilst they con us with home-owner-ism.

    Regulation is good for everyone except banks.

    The banks told me that, so it must be true.

      Not everyone – the press shouldn’t be regulated either.

      Where would effective regulation leave the likes of Kelve with his trusty sword of truth?

      XXXxx says:

      Gordon listened to them and he agreed with them, not of course did he realise that the restriction on banks were for a reason, and anything they asked for was purely for self interest and licence to run amock

      No chance – the fat cun*t hasn’t seen it under his flabby gut for years.

    Just another attempt to break up England.

    First they flood us with barbarians, then they try and pretend the English never existed. And now they promote a trumped up regionalism. Anything to try and destroy England and the English people.

    Just what are the political classes and their stooges so afraid of?

      Unfortunately the Northerners (= Vikings) already destroyed the northern part of the English people, and all that’s left is the intelligent part in the south

      George doesn’t really want to take your money. He’s just been backed into a corner by inheriting an almighty crock of economic shit from his predecessors. Anybody who thinks it’ll be sorted out in anything less than a decade has not been paying attention.

        XXXxx says:

        That’s very true, the only trouble he thought that he would be all done and dusted and the economy would have pulled around

        Greychatter says:

        It took Gordon Brown, Ed Balls and Ed Milliband 13 years to cock-up our economy – George is probably still finding traps and skeletons in the cupboard left by Gordon.
        All these Labour people have done very nicely for themselves and left the George Osborne to sort out the mess.
        This has always happened when Labour has run the economy into the ground. Labour had four good years using Ken Clark’s figures, and then Gordon went mad.
        It will take more than 2 years to get back to anything like where Ken Clark left the economy.
        Voters and Politicians have very short selective memories.

    Well, it’s a good rant, but it doesn’t really stand much scrutiny. Apart from some corrupt banks and their hangers-on, what does the economy of the South-East actually consist of?

    Home rule for London and the South East, I’ll vote for that *ucker! When do ya leave Kelivin I’m counting off the days already. Maybe we could do a swop for Scotland?

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
