Play the Chris Huhne Penalty Points Game!

Don’t have a date this Valentine’s Day? Why not console yourself by playing the Chris Huhne/Vicky Pryce penalty points game, courtesy of Mindwork Labs. Dodge the cameras and make sure those points don’t end up on your license. Huhne’s nine political lives are up, you better make the most of yours…

    He had to take his bag to the court today. He takes it home again for the weekend and has to come back with it on Monday.

    Nice to see Sky News pointing out that Red Ed’s about turn on the 10p tax rate is a “slap in the face for Gordon Brown”

    Also nice that Sky News get an expert to point out that the proposed plan by mong face would cost 7 billion and mean everyone owning a 2 million pound house and above would all have to cough up £100,000 EACH.

    Meanwhile over at the BBC, Nick Robinson and co are still too busy sucking Red Ed’s cock dry to have bothered to check up on the facts. Perhaps Toenails and co should tune into Sky News?

    David Starkey, Looks Good In Khaki says:

    I have to say that what disturbs me most about this whole disreputable saga is Mr. Huhne’s choice of dress for the court.

    Only once did he bother to dress in khaki (and he did look suave on that occasion, it must be said).

    Back in the Middle Ages, no self-respecting politician would have gone about wearing anything other than fine couture. I really think it behoves those in public life today to set an example in the fashion stakes.

    And that’s Huhne’s great crime. Never mind the legal positivism of the whole thing, Huhne’s dearth of kahki shows that he doesn’t even have a sense of garmentry. Even that silly Bagshawe girl could do better!

    Yes.

    Without wishing to approach the realms of Schadenfreude, it does seem as if matters are being spun out for Huhne as some by some retributative form of justice.

    Mr Justice Sweeney said a not guilty verdict would require the jury to agree that she had no choice but to do as her husband ordered and that he was present at the time she signed the paperwork as she said he was.

    If the jury, however, decided that Huhne was not present when Ms Pryce signed the form they should find her guilty.

    On no account were the jury to log onto order-order.com over the weekend.

    In all seriousness: Every other country with a responsible immigration policy has quota’s for people from certain regions / countries broken down by skills.

    This idiocy over selling the UK is reflective of a failure of policy.

    “Nigel does not like women. He will not tolerate women that have a certain intelligence. He thinks women should be in the kitchen or in the bedroom. These are the two kinds of women he will respect, not a woman that says ‘things are not as you say and we should follow the rules’.

    Engineer says:

    If Huhne had taken the speeding points at the time of the offence, he would have served his motoring ban long before the 2010 election – which brings me to the main point. If Huhne was still a cabinet minister, he would still be inflicting a very damaging energy policy on the country, costing ordinary people a great deal of money for their electricity and gas. He would still be pushing the building of wind farms. Whilst energy policy is not yet much better, it is at least a tad more pragmatic than it would be if Huhne was still in office. It is therefore better for the ordinary citizens of the UK that he isn’t in office.

    The disadvantage of being a high-flyer is that it’s a long way down. By all accounts, Huhne is an arrogant, egotistical monster, so his descent may a tad deserved.

    Rabbi Owen Jones says:

    • Hamas to demolish 75 homes it says were illegally built on public land. While Gazans protest, Rabbi Owen Jones asks, Where’s the global outrage?

    The government of Israel sometimes demolishes homes, saying that they were illegally built on public land. And of course, it is a member state of the United Nations, not a terrorist group. But when it does, one can expect various governments to condemn the action and can expect action in the UN Human Rights Council, perhaps even a debate in the UN General Assembly or Security Council in New York. . . . Of course, this comparison between actions taken by Hamas and actions taken by the government of Israel will annoy some readers, and I do not mean to suggest that all such actions are the same. I mean to suggest that all those international bodies that are outspoken about home demolitions should turn their attention to Gaza as well as to Israel and the West Bank.

    EUKIP needs to be cleaned up. This is part of the reason why Farage needs to get UKIP MPs in the UK.

    The European political scene as we are aware is totally corrupt, there are a minority even in EUKIP. These give the party a very bad name.

    1.) Is it possible to boast in an unbraggardly way?
    2.) It is sometimes interesting to compare results. Mr Stoatgobbler, whom I have no reason to doubt, claims to have exceeded my score by quite a handsome margin. But he could not have avoided any more cameras. I imagine that there is a penalty for anticipating too soon. Being a cautious fellow, look at my background, I may have been too heavy upon the s key. On the other hand, I have not managed to get myself into the pickle that the ex-honourable member for Eastleigh did. So to use the modern idiom, it is horses for courses.

    My point is that the way that Voltaire’s words were adopted into the English idiom involved a shift in emphasis to encourage others not to engage in the same activity as some other person had. That proscribed activity could in itself have a positive or negative characteristic.

    (Rac!sm is not about skin color)

    What really ticks people off, and is not mentioned in the article, is that foreign values are being imposed on Russian’s via the trojan of a sports authority in this case.

    That subversion of what a sports authority should be doing, ie. representing the sport and keeping out of minority politics, is the real story which is not being told.

    The downside to bute and other dirt being in meat – is that if it is or HAS been fed to younger ‘still developing children’ in their school meals – for say a period of 4 to 11 years. The negative effects upon those younger children are multiplied many times more than the effects that it would have on a developed adult. There have been numerous questions raised for many years about some of the meat suppliers – supplying schools in particular the south Wales region including Bridgend.

Ed will then trap Queen Pixie Moneygoose in the deepest, darkest, dankest dungeon in all of Lalaland and rush back to Earth in his space ship. Upon his return, he will distribute the one trillion billion infinity pounds to everyone in Britain, who will all live happily ever after.

    A later member of the Byng dynasty, Field Marshal Julian Byng (and later, Viscount Byng of Vimy, a life peerage) was the head of the Metropolitan Police in the late 1920’s, but before that, he served as Governor-General of Canada. His wife sponsored a trophy to be given to NHL ice hockey players, a trophy given to this day, for the player who gets into the fewest fights in a season. Anyone who has spent any time in Canada, and has watched the NHL, can appreciate that staying out of fights in an NHL game is a most difficult endeavour. Oddly or perhaps ironically, the whole point of rewarding the “most-gentlemanly player” was, for Lady Byng, to encourage the others NOT to fight. We shit thee not.

    Prime example of where the influence of Britain can change things on the ground. I only wish we could do this in Conakry where the long French influence has been of less than zero value. They have their first democratically elected government for half a century of communist dictators but the country is so run down they can’t get up onto their feet again. Potentially, it is one of the richest countries on the planet. They have half the world’s reserves of bauxite (aluminium ore) there, gold, diamonds and it has in the past simply supported military regimes which have left the people to descend to become the second poorest on the planet.

    Huhne is an awful specimen but compared with those who have been very justly lynched the overall package we label Huhne is not worth getting too animated about. Once the attention is off of him he will start to suffer as he seems to be bit of a narcissist.

    Now, those responsible for what has been going on in the NHS, they certainly are deserving of the attention of the rope.

    I do not agree with a word you have said about Huhne’s narcissism or about the NHS remarks.

    Huhne, in pursuit of his misguided ego, has still managed to wreak so much damage upon our countryside, which I have travelled and loved so thoroughly over the decades, that I rate his evil much higher than perhaps you do.

    That is looking at eternity. For now, the negative effects upon impoverishing the UK are sufficient reason for metaphorically committing him to Room 101, without a moment’s hesitation.

    Does any group figure in your list above at rates which directly rejects the statistical Null Hypothesis?

    It can be traced back to The Marshall Plan (and OECD and EU Project). One has to know what the relationship was between the US State Department and Treasury at the end of WWII, and that whilst the USSR was an erstwhile ally of the USA, France and Britain during the war, the Morgenthau Plan was the first draconian policy towards Germany and essentially amounted to economically bombing it into a cabbage patch. The architect was Harry Dexter White (a Soviet agent) so the historical record has it (although see the CIA official account on White too)…

    Look into how Dexter-White was allegedly working with the Soviets to drive West Germany and the rest of Europe into the Soviet sphere by de-industrialising it (making it much like Thatcher was to render Britain and Mandelson etc afterwards in fact). A good source is “The Morgenthau Plan: Soviet influence on American postwar policy” By John Dietrich.

    The Marshall Plan was a US State Department volte face when they woke up to what the Soviets were up to according to Dietrich. There was nothing charitable about it at all. Economic union was a big part of the overall strategy of the World Bank/IMF and Bretton Woods – there should be no surprise that the USSR would not be part of this.

    Just bear in mind all the Libertarian Political Correctness over extent decades and just look at how most of the EU economies and Britain’s have almost been turned into “cabbage patch economies”… Little “metal bashing”, erosion of armed forces etc. Does this remind you of anything? It should.

    ii) Fix their land law (import english common law norms for conveyancing in particular)

    iii) Adopt liberal free market capitalism as their system of economy.

    Make sure they all read Hernando de Soto’s ‘The mystery of capital’, and Susan Strange: ‘Casino Capitalism’. Follow de Soto, Strange warns of what not to do.

    iv) Government should get at least 50% cut on minerals extracted, and retain a reserve / control over rate of extraction. Ensure companies do not trash environment by codifying stiff penalties into local law and contracts.

    v) Splurge cash on education, public infrastructure and light infantry first. When the cities are developed so you can flush a toilet without triggering a cholera outbreak, start thinking about a navy and air force.

    Ensure that a sovereign wealth fund is established, into which a fixed percentage of income from exports is paid.

    Labeling is back on the Menu in the EU:

    http://www.euractiv.com/health/parliament-discuss-food-labellin-news-517760

    Socialists and Democrats group (S&D) : L!nda McAv@n (Labour), a British M3P is the S&D’s spokesperson on food safety.

    “Back in 2011 the Council agreed to the S&D request to include country-of-origin labelling for fresh lamb, pork, goat and poultry, just as we already had for beef, fish, fruit and vegetables,” said British Labour M3P Glen!s W!llmott.

    In the EU, the origin must always be labelled for olive oil, fish (unless it is canned or prepared), beef, fresh or frozen poultry of non-EU origin, wine, most fresh fruit and vegetables, honey and eggs.

    For all other foods, origin labelling is optional.

    The conservative led group blocked traffic light for nutritional information, not country of origin. The Labour individual was mistaken.

    Most are still either mis-labelling or not labelling country of origin for meats.

    The dioxin scandal has not been reported in UK much. Just as serious and very good reason to cease purchasing any meats which have not sourced and been processed within the UK. Russia recently banned most EU meats for that reason.

    Regulation means diddly squat. We have the damned laws in place – enforce the laws.

    Don’t bang on about “regulation” and then mention the word fraud when speaking about the meat infestation or the Stafford deaths. We have the damned laws – enforce them.

    Bankers, politicians and lawyers love to speak and waffle on (with forked-tongue) about “regulation” … e.g One Irony is the SRA – the Solicitors REGULATORY Authority …

    I have banged on many times previously about that regulation means nothing whatsoever at law.

    http://www.margaretthatcher.org/document/111967

    Socialism destroyed UK manufacturing: It was pretty much dead anyway when Thatcher got in.

    @BW: No need to pick a bone. You have actually made my point in what you said.

    I was drawing attention to the fact that destroying the public faith in the justice system is one of the objectives of global communism. You have outlined how that is achieved, and also that the objective is just about complete.

    Now the question is why and what happens next.

    Next comes the closed court and justice system, to protect the system from the angry masses. There will likely be a purge as well within the system from within, under the guise of a form of temporary martial law being introduced. With the courts closed that will be invisible to the public, so the masses will only know that the state has cleaned the system up, that the system is now working correctly but the system will remain hidden from the people for their and its protection.

    The only thing to be concerned about now and over the next year is that those courts currently closed are reopened, and at the very least, no other courts are closed.

    Some say there would not have been Thatcherism without Keith Joseph. He was the one who put in the slog to create the most coherent set of philosophical principles, possibly in our history, the like of which we have certainly not seen since even in the palest of forms.

    Although not a natural front man, maybe because of that, he was ferociously intelligent on in-depth matters. Not so good on the stump, he said some things which allowed him to be cast as a believer in eugenics, he wasn’t, and that finished his chances of the leadership. Margaret Thatcher was much more intuitive.

    Between them the Indians and Lebanese run Sub-Saharan Africa, especially in the west. The place would collapse without them. They run all the small shops and mini-markets which you find there. Their networking is superb. It is rather less pronounced in Guinea Conakry than it is in next-door Sierra Leone but still significant.

    The Chіnese are in a separate category. I have not seen any there involved in minerals but I do not get out to the mining areas. Russia had taken over from Canada as the destination for all bauxite but they walked away when a major strike occurred over a year ago and, at the last I knew, the mines still lie idle.

    Casual Observer says:

    @T01: There was nothing charitable about Marshall plan, agreed. Part of that plan though was the US realization that in order for it’s own economy to continue, it needed a decent trading partner. Europe was perfect for that.

    America was a creditor nation immediately after the war and did not forgive its war debt (as was traditional practice previously).

    The only way the war debt would be paid off is if Europe could rebuild. A further motivation for the Martial plan. America realized that economic strife as experienced in Germany when too much was extracted in too short a time was a major factor leading to the rise of the NSDAP and the rest.

    Your geopolitical point also played a role but the US could have still ensured the Iron curtain fell and communism was kept out without Martial aid coercion. However that scenario would have been much more expensive for the US.

    ‘Libertarian political correctness’ is anathema. You perhaps meant ‘liberal political correctness’. Libertarians do not impose a politically based code of thought and indeed that goes against the essence of the philosophy.

    Libertarians: Moral code yes, political code no: correct, is always debatable, absolute codes are amoral so out.

    ‘Political correctness’ as an absolute means of coercing thought is very much a Marxian construct which was perfected under communism.

    Have only just seen this but I have been only coming in intermittently. I fail to see your falsification point in the first sentence, I’m afraid, unless you are applying it to the whole thread of comments above – which is not what you said.

    Otherwise I broadly agree with CO but especially with reference to the wholly mistaken and curious conjunction of Libertarianism with political correctness.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
