  2. 2
    Grant Shapps aka Michael Green says:

    Following an emergency Cobra meeting this lunchtime, The Government have placed Prime Minister David Cameron on gardening leave. The Government expects to make further announcements about this over the course of the weekend.

    Engineer says:

    Bad timing. The gardens are under snow, so he’ll come bouncing back into Number 10 saying he might as well do some governing until the weather picks up.

    Old Dog No Tricks says:

    So europe is sending troops to Mali in a training role……. since when did the EU have an army to send…….. or is there something Dave is not telling us about the close cooperation deal he’s been so proud of ?

  8. 8
    Lord Mooncrater says:

    The EU won’t be sending troops? Err, the EU do not have armed forces. The EU is a bunch of desk – bound clowns scamming money from people that work for a living – esp. in the UK.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    Please enjoy the snow as another drought (and hose-pipe ban) may be along shortly so as the Global warming nut-jobs can get off on another FICTIOUS scare story – Be “FOREVER FEARFUL” – It may / might /could / possibly be the END OF THE WORLD…

    Old Dog No Tricks says:

    Has to be a first……. still at least Algeria gave him and excuse to cancel once again his EU in-in speech (after following Mme Whiplash Merkels orders the first time)……… and look concerned and self important for the TV camera’s at the same time !

  11. 11
    Blowing Whistles says:

    And the death of the EU is long overdue.

    There is a lot that the Europeans can Learn in Mali says:

    Alex Aiken is still a cunt says:

    Guido and others, please sign/publicise this petition for UKIP to be involved in the 2015 televised debates:

    EU Watch says:

    In case no one has noticed, the Grand social contract that the EU offered is dead:


    This is quite significant as social contracts are quite important for democratic entities to legitimize the binding with the people.

    Security is also not guaranteed, especially if one considers that UN 2085 / Mal! cannot be met by the EU as it currently stands. The situation there is still far from resolved, the only benefit so far is that only French troops are on the ground (under somewhat dubious international legal conditions) and Bamanko has not yet fallen.

    Hollande’s call for ‘ l’union sacrée’ – likely in order to get cross party domestic consensus for intervention – is hardly in line with EU thinking…

    Not Blowing Whistes says:

    Ever noticed how the US weather forecasts for Europe tend to be much more accurate than the local drivel… :-)

  16. 16
    Lord Jensen Interceptor says:

    You have to admire how Mr Kenny, the Irish PM, will manage running guns for the IRA, fucking children for the fenian church and promoting the export of young Irish folk elsewhere.

    A Nobel peace prize surely awaits.

    Cameron seems to be clueless as to what is happening in Algeria. Might be he is watching BBC and Sky for more information.

    You should know by now that rain or snow and other cold spells of 2 days are due to climate change. Any temperature over 70F for 3 hours is due to global warming.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
