Huhne’s Speedy Farewell

Who says the Eastleigh LibDems don’t have a sense of humour? This is the latest literature they have been pushing round, unfortunately published before the demise of their MP:

A case of not being on the same page, on the same page…

    WTF is a Speedwatch Volunteer?

    A wannabe traffic policeman?

    Do they put cardboard boxes on their heads and pretend to be speed cameras?

    Or stand by the kerb and tut-tut when a fast car goes past?

      All of the above; they are Liberals – it’s what they do! (I.e. nosy self important jobsworth types often on civil service pensions)

      All of the above. A liberal by definition is a nosy self important jobsworth on a civil service pension.

      “Community Speed Watch is a scheme to encourage people to reduce speeding traffic though their community”

      It’s also a scheme to encourage and empower the mong community to create rich media websites that are splattered with the word “community”.

        It’s people like you who should be confined for a period in a mental institution as you have no sympathy for members of our UK community with Downs. Huhne should have seen this coming, and I am placing lots of bets on Labour storming this election, Southampton, Portsmouth, Reading and Greater London in 2015. Just remember to vote split as you all do. At least we protect the most vulnerable people in society unlike Cameron and his vicious, ideological cuts.

          Like 1200+ Staffs hospital patients you mean? Glad we cleared that up.

          Taffy apple – please go away and look for your brain.

        I love the way that the speedwatchers have set up their tripod sign in front of, and obscuring, a lawful road sign showing the speed limit, and in front of a sign warning drivers of hazardous bends. (Second photo).

        Fucking muppets.

      Y you rich git, just like Oaten, he’ll likely get himself a rent boy

        Before you get all wound up LAB GAIN

        The moniker is a play on dead man walking and Huhne is a millionaire

        We plough the fields and scatter
        Our good seed on a plate,
        the ex-MP for Eastleigh
        May now enjoy his fate.

          Ah, you are referring to the adjacent ex-MP for Winchester – clever boy!

          LAB GAIN +9 says:

          Too right. Sodom and Gomorrah will turn towards the redeeming grace of Miliband and Balls and we will build a new Jerusalem in England, with fairness and economic prosperity.


          • Curly wonders says:

            If you’d ever bothered to get off your computer and read the news, you would have known that the current Jerusalem is split in half between east and west. Is that what you are advocating a north/south split UK?

    And while the good folk of Eastleigh are watching, the imm igrants drive past without Tax or Insurance and the police turn a blind-eye. ( Today’s Mail )

    Once again the crime is being caught, not the deed. I am just so pleased this odious little man has left our lives, hopefully for good.

      He’ll soon tire out of wifey no.2 who’ll take her half and get wed to wifey no.3 with a new public sector job for which he will not really be responsible. If he was in the private sector he would have been taken under with it by the law suits.

        Sodom & Gomorrah says:

        As there seem to be vague rumours about more points being taken by third parties, hopefully that could prove a further stop to the man’s future ‘rehabilitation’.

      That’ll work! The idea has proved wonderfully effective and efficient in the hospital sector over the past 15 years or so.

      A lucrative scheme pushed hard by certain (specially favoured few) private sector companies under the acronym PFI, which it is understood means “Please Flatten It” [so we can make loadsamoney rebuilding at outrageous and untrammelled cost].

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
