Chris Huhne’s Driving Advice at Heart of LibDem Pamphlet

“Is true that Huhne has a chapter in the new Liberal Democrat ‘Green Book’” Guido asked a LibDem source in bewilderment earlier. “No, that would be madness… He has two chapters,” came the reply. And yes it’s true, Huhne has found good use of his spare time to pen two chapters for ‘New Directions for Liberals in Government’ that apparently ‘brings together 27 leading Liberal Democrats and sympathetic experts to propose radical and innovative new directions for the Liberal Democrats.’

One chapter is on, cough, “Driving Growth” and the another on ““reducing emissions from transport”.

Two areas he has a specialist interest in.

With a foreword from Clegg, it seems his party has learnt many lessons from their recent communication disasters.

          Miliband is not a democrat by any useful measure.

          His entire family history is one of contempt, to outright hatred for free people. The sooner both the Labour party and the Fauxservatives join them Lib-Loon party in the dustbin of history, the better for true freedom and democracy.

    Ok lets see if this post works.

    New Directions for LibDems:-

    1. Keep your promises.
    2. Learn from the mistakes of your rush for power.
    3. Ask yourself why you need a new direction, what is wrong with the existing one?

    You need to inspire hearts once again, but as you have broken countless hearts that will be tricky.

    That is brilliant! What in their right minds were they thinking? Whatever next?

    Owen Jones says:

    “You ain’t seen nothing yet,” said Owen Jones, chief economist in London at Owen Jones Fund Managers Ltd., which oversees about $42 billion. “If the world believes there will be significantly more stimulus coming, which I expect, the pound is likely to be under further pressure.”

    The U.K. currency slid to $1.4986 on March 1, the lowest level since July 2010, and down from this year’s high of $1.6381 on Jan. 2. It rose 0.3 percent to $1.5166 at 10:31 a.m. London time today. That’s still a 6.7 percent drop from the start of the year, the third-worst performance among 32 major currencies tracked by Owen Jones after the yen and the rand.

    A man has died after reportedly playing the gun game Russian Roulette “for a laugh” in Renfrewshire, Scotland

    Emergency services were called to a house on Hogg Avenue in Johnstone on Saturday following a “firearms” incident.

    Alan McWilliams, 41, was found seriously injured and taken to the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow for treatment but died on Sunday.

    A neighbour told the Scottish Sun that Mr McWilliams had been “playing Russian roulette with a pal and the gun went off”.

      A dominant member of coliform group is E Coli.

      Given the ingredients of those cakes, unless there is contamination in the factory where they are made, one should be somewhat concerned about the dairy supply chain.

      This has probably come in from the Milk / Cream ingredients, but pasteurization usually kills that off.

      There was an outbreak of e-coli in Sweden back in 2011 which claimed at least 39 victims tied to outbreak in Germany, and a separate case:

      What the fuck do you care Abbopotamus?

      It’s not like they are going to be in your son’s private school classroom, with the exasperated teacher trying to teach them basic English while the rest of the children’s education goes down the shitter.

      Why are lefties so obsessed with allowing mass immigration of unskilled labour when we already have 25% youth unemployment and overwhelmed services?

      Because it’s an excuse for a bigger state, that’s why.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
