Hack Pack Can’t Get Back
Lobby “Banging On About Europe” as Stuck in Belgium

Well this is hilarious. It seems half of Her Majesty’s loyal press corp are stuck in Brussels as they attempt to get back from Dave’s cancelled Amsterdam speech through the Europe-wide snow storm:

This is certainly going to endear them to Cameron’s European strategy…

UPDATE: By the skin of their teeth…

    Each time you go into the booth and place your cross against liblabcon, you give them the power to cede more powers to the EU.

    Don’t moan, they do what they do because you voted for them. It is you that continually gives them the power for the UK to be part of a United States of Europe.

    Cameron very happy to let the Scots have an independence vote, but definitely not England!

      Democracy yes, Liblabcon no says:

      The one thing that truly scares the Westminster vermin is the thought of Scottish independence. Not only for the loss of Scotland, but the Pandora’s box it will open for the rest of the UK.

      If the Liblabcon party tribalists think it’ll be business as usual in a rump UK, then boy are they in for a big shock.

      Indeed. Almost as laughable as those BBC idiots discussing News Corp and pronouncing it as News Core – such ignorant pretension – typical no nothing journoscum.

    Never mind. They were the ones who enthusiastically printed the lies from the Green scaremongers saying ‘;Our children will never know what snow is’…

      That is no problem as it will sit alongside all the millions of other useful things that kids will not know thanks to the desecration of our once-excellent education system by Shergar Williams and Trayter Crossland

    Terrible But True says:

    I find myself curiously unperturbed at the prospect of not being told what to think about what I have just heard a bloke say.

    Like discovering that ‘news’ actually seemed better over the school hols with most of the BBC Editors off on the slopes (Paul Mason still anywhere but the home base), they’d better get back pronto before folk realise they actually add no value at all to anything.

    Breaking News says:

    “A barrel shaped piece of lard has been washed up on a Scottish beach.”

    David Cameron’s PPS was quick to assure worried voters that he is well & nowhere near Scotland at the moment.

    LNG News says:

    Whilst the LNG plant repair costs are assessed, it looks like Iran has discovered another massive gas field in it’s territory:


    Wholesale price of gas should be coming down massively soon, especially if the South Pars comes on line to Europe, and once US Shale gas gets going.

    Scot Watch says:

    Whilst SNP still want to go independent, there are some very legitimate questions to be asked as to how an independent Scotland would survive.

    Gas for one is looking like a no-go zone, especially as wholesale prices are likely to be coming down sharply in next few years and they are running out:


    (See ‘Scotland’ section)

    So, as EU Social contract is just about bust, does independent Scotland consider exports of haggis and finished wool products enough to support itself ?

    “Go into your pants get my favourite thing out & ram it in the hole”. Samantha demanded.
    So i took my wallet out , got my bank card out & put it in the cash machine.

    Ignorant Brit monoglot peasants who are confusing Europe and the EU. Brussels is a beautiful city with great restaurants, the best beer in the world, knocking shops a-plenty etc etc – ditto a lot of Belgium, actually.

    Remember UKIP ‘loves Europe – hates the EU’.

      Brussels is as ugly as hell. Mainly built by the same architects who ruined Leicester in the 1970s.

      Democracy yes, Liblabcon no says:

      It’s the people that hate the EU that actually want to preserve European civilisation and European peoples.

      The EU fanatics, for all their bogus talk of ‘Europe’, don’t actually care much for Europeans, and are quite happy for tens of millions of non-Europeans to flood into Europe and cause chaos.
