Quote of the Day

Liam Byrne told the LSE in January 2012:

“Labour is the party of hard workers not free-riders. The clue is in the name. We are the Labour party. The party that said that idleness is an evil. The party of workers, not shirkers”

    The commies are a dying breed like the ohmos.

        “Picture the scene – you arrive home early to find your wife Linda in bed with another man. Only it’s not actually a man. It’s a big fat lezza smoking MY pipe and wearing MY slippers.”

    And the stablishment can stand back and grandly state that this specimen Byrne – is one of the UK’s foremost political representatives … well F me gently if I don’t laugh at the laughing stock that is The House of Commons!

    We’ve always been lying sell out bastards. Vote for us and we will pay you handsomely to sit at home and watch Jeremy Kyle. Get a job and we disown you. Only Tory scum work

    Labour are the party of public sector employees — few of whom actually do any real work.

    They’ve no interest in the honest working man at all. All of their polices have hurt the workers.

      As far as the Labour Party is concerned, anyone working in the private sector is little more than a walking bag of tax revenue.

    Labour is the creature of organised Labour; that seeks to injure in any way it can the hand that feeds it. Has anything changed? I don’t recall many conservative voters leading strikes. Socialism is like religion. Pernicious. A mother jailed this week for killing her son for not reciting the Koran well enough. What lovely people.

    Liam Byrne obviously does not know his arse from his elbow; Let him be reminded of the last time Liebour tried to hammer the rich – they upped sticks and left, PAYING NO TAX AT ALL……… duh

    Liam Byrne says:

    Yeah but that was a different day. In Labour we mean different things to different people on different days. I’ll leave a note about it in my drawer. Right, I’m off for a haircut now.

    Perhaps they might advise the Virgin store workers in Paris indignantly complaining they they were closing saying ‘ We were on strike last week to save these jobs’ rather missing the cause and effect of this type of thing!

    Viv Dean says:

    We should all re-read ‘Animal Farm’ and re-cast it with the past & present Labour front bench. ‘Milk and apples, comrades’? How much are we paying Gordon Brown NOT to attend the House while he earns a fortune on the international circuit? How much is Tony Bliar’s property portfolio worth? What is Ed & Justine’s joint income? How much do Yvonne & Ed claim in expenses?

    And Labour have the cheek to cast the Tories as ‘out of touch with the ordinary working man’!

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.”
