      Doreen Tipton says:

      I vote Labour and Owen Jones is my hero. If it wasn’t for my disability (Lazy Cow Syndrome) I would let him have his way with me.

      Famous last words left on his last note in office, “There is no money left”

      Why because they were corrupt then, and are still corrupt now.

      There’s no morality left.

      I couldn’t agree more….. and if we want to sum them ALL up,
      try this from one of the UK’s greatest musical exports. (not that you’d know it, this song from ’82, the BBC have actively boycotted them for 30 years! probably because they write lyrics that educate maybe? not what the Beeb wants huh? we’ve all seen their output)

      Depeche Mode: More Than A Party Lyrics
      Songwriter: MARTIN GORE

      “Lots of surprises in store
      This isn’t a party it’s a whole lot more

      We’ve had enough of this blind man’s bluff
      You’ve kept us in the dark for long enough
      This is more than a party

      Keep telling us we’re to have fun
      Then take all the ice cream so we’ve got none
      This is more than a party

      The failed magician waves his wand
      And in an instant the laughter’s gone
      This is more than a party

      Lots of surprises in store
      This isn’t a party it’s a whole lot more
      More than a party”

      That's a Labour 4 U says:

      Let’s face it whatever the government proposes, Ed’s team opposes.

      If Dave had introduced a Bill to pay welfare claimants 10% above the rate of inflation, Ed would have countered with a plan to cut welfare at 10% below the rate of inflation.

      Labour could not care less about the state of the nation all they are interested in is childish politics.

        “Labour could not care less about the state of the nation all they are interested in is childish politics”

        ….and nest-lining with taxpayers’ cash….and they can’t even get that right if the state of the party’s finances is any guide.

      This guy is simply breathtaking. He’s not a politician. He’s a joke.

    Jay says:

    This is the only honest thing I’ve heard in ages. I’m not sucked in by any of the scum bags, but this at least is honesty for a change. Summend up in 1 min 38 secs

      Anonymous says:

      Not really honest. He said they had to deal with the people who thought they stood up for shirkers.

      It was only a perception that needs changing, not policy.

      As for Tony Benn, I know what it is to have your life threatened, to gain your silence. They do it so regularly and easily they do not realise the implications.

      Your Friendly Neighbourhood Clever Editing Service says:

      What a field day someone like Michael Moore, but on the other side, could have with an out-of-context quote like:(0:59- 1:05) “We don’t want people to be educated, healthy and confident, because they would get out of control…”, as if that old Socialist were personally advocating such a thing. People might actually believe he was. And who could blame them? There’s plenty of evidence to support the thesis that that’s the unstated assumption of Labour’s electoral strategy.

      Remember, the film from which this is an excerpt, Sicko, is a paean to the NHS. Plenty of distortions in that little opus, as in all of Moore’s work.

    Liam Byrne is an imbecile. He claimed yesterday that Labour left a recovery for the Tories… I don’t know how Iain Duncan Smith kept a straight face.

      Hugh Janus says:

      No, Byrne is good news – he makes a valuable contribution to making Liebour unelectable, in the same way that One Term Dave does for the Tories.

    a tax farmer says:

    i want more subsidies – 80p a litre red diesel not enough – school fees, three 4×4’s, accountants and 500 acres to support

    gimme gimme then gimme some more!

      Socialism = starvation says:

      Red diesel is not a subsidy, it’s a partial exemption from an excise duty (or tax). Farmers are not subsidised by lower taxes, it’s just that their life is less unbearable due to such an exemption.

    Slimy as the Oily Vaz and doubtless there’s murk in there somewhere. Oh if I bothered to watch BBC (news, snork) would I be seeing this clip?. xxx

    Tuscan Tony says:

    I do find it amusing how statements of the bleeding obvious seem to be presented as great revelations of hidden truths, and are then condemned by the bloodsuckers and parasites that infest the bodies of all welfare states.


  11. 12
    Byrne on "honest MPs" says:

    Sorry, there are none left

    Andrew Efiong says:

    He’s shirking away from the truth!

    Well done Guido, another Labour hypocrit flushed out for all to see.

    I hope labour keep liam’there’s no money left’ byrne in the public eye for a long time. Every time I see him I am instantly reminded of the economic mess labour left us in!

    There's No money left. says:

    Liam Byrne is an unusual Labour MP, in that he has a tendency to tell the Truth.

    Anne Archy, UK says:

    Question – Are there enough shirkers to get Labour elected?
    Answer – No
    Labour Policy- Fuck ‘em

    Question – Are there enough shirkers to get Labour elected?
    Answer – Yes
    Labour Policy – Throw money at the bastards

    Bring Back Piers - Send him to jail says:

    Much more fun to be had here:


    Scroll down and watch slippery Piers get his bottom smacked by a man who understands the nature of governments.

    Living in 96.98 percent white Merseyside says:

    Talking of shirkers where are all the MP’s most of the time? One rarely sees them in the chamber.
    Probably at a drinks party or enjoying a lie in.

    Pol Pot says:

    A bit of basic honesty wouldn’t come amiss, we have got 648 MPs that are pretty much all millionaires (If not multi-), so your class ridden schoolboy diatribes have little basis in fact (anybody still remember the Jarrow March?, certainly not you), you must be on a nice little earner what with all that writing (I use the term loosely) for rags and appearance fees on MSM panels peopled by idiots.

    I wish I hadnt seen that. Ruined my opinion of the British political system.

    Gordon Brown's constituent says:

    Brown gets paid but never attends. He’s both a firker and a shirker and responsible for the complete mess we are in.

    There is no honesty left.
