Theresa May Death Stare Part Two

Nigel Evans might have loved it, but May was less than impressed after Ed said Dave “had been overruled by the Home Secretary” on minimum alcohol pricing. The death stare is becoming a regular occurrence at PMQs…

      Booze tax? well it exists anyway. What are you on about?

      A bottle of wine or a bottle of bubbly contains about 8 or 9 units, so the min price for either would be about £3.80

    Huhne’s getting mocked by other inmates!

    Disgraced former Cabinet minister Chris Huhne was ridiculed on his first day in jail when a warder called him to breakfast shouting “Order! Order!”, it was reported today.

    The prison officer, using the Tannoy system in Wandsworth jail, mimicked the Commons Speaker by adding: “The right honourable member for Wandsworth North – down to the office,” The Sun newspaper reported.

    Other prisoners at the south-west London jail were said to have roared with laughter as Huhne went from his cell to pick up the meal.

    The newspaper also reported that 58-year-old Huhne has been moved to a wing for vulnerable prisoners because other convicts humiliated and bullied him.

    He is said to have asked to be moved to the special area after prisoners discovered he was a millionaire and badgered him for cash.

    An unnamed woman, speaking to the newspaper outside the prison yesterday after a visit to see her boyfriend, said the other prisoners targeted Huhne as a “soft touch” within hours of his arrival.

    “Someone found out he was a millionaire and as soon as he was on the wing there were loads of people after him. They kept on going up to him saying, ‘We know you’ve got money’,” she said.

    “They had to move him into the segregation block because inmates were bullying him.”

            Ah, the EEC,

            Heydrich also drew up “The Reich Plan for the Domination of Europe”. This proposal was published and circulated in 1942 and bears a striking similarity to the 1957 Treaty of Rome, on which the European Union is based today.

            “Heydrich’s plan coincided with a conference organised by the University of Berlin in 1942, entitled “Europaische Wirtshaftgemeinschaft” – the European Economic Community (or EEC). Some of the papers had particularly chilling titles, which still resonate today: “The Economic Face of New Europe”, “Development of the EEC”, “European Agriculture”, “European Transport”, “A European Currency”, “European Trade and Economic Treaties”, “Is Europe a Geographical Concept or a Political Fact?”

            That EEC?

    OK. Here is a joke for that old misery, Blowing Whistles:

    A man named William Strange died, and his friend asked the tombstone maker to inscribe on his tombstone: Here lies Strange, an honest man, and a lawyer.

    The inscriber insisted that such an inscription would be confusing, for passers by would tend to think that three men were buried under the stone. However he suggested an alternative.

    He suggested the following:

    Here Lies a Man who was BOTH honest and a lawyer.

    That way, whenever anyone walked by the tombstone and read it, they would be certain to remark:

    That’s Strange!

    Hope it makes the miserable git smile a bit…

          It should be the role of the opposition to examine a Government’s policies and if necessary expose their errors and perhaps suggest alternatives. Ed, though, in his sixth form debate mode, just sniggers and points.
          Cameron is little better, with no dignity or statesmanship about him, though he does have a smoother and occasionally more polite manner.

      The E.U. is gradually strengthening its grip on a captive Europe; before too many years have passed, only revolution will bring any country out of it. Many recent wars have involved the struggle of smaller countries to escape an artificial yoke (e.g. Yugoslavia) or the grip of an Empire (e.g. the Soviet “Union”). There is every reason to suppose that the next set of European wars will involve national efforts to escape the E.U. yoke.
