Labour and Tories Square Up Ahead of Monday Showdown
Pairing Withdrawn With No Exceptions

Looks like we’re heading for a big old showdown on Monday. Guido understands Labour have withdrawn all pairs for select committee delegations on Monday. Removing the slips revokes permission not to be in Parliament for the crucial Crime and Courts bill wrecking amendment. The Tories have “reluctantly” followed suit, with no exceptions. Business will run beyond 10pm – it’s going to be a long day…

    Pope Burgerlo says:

    Boys boys boys! I’m looking for a good time!

    Pope Buggerme says:

    Give back the Falklands.

    I wonder if that means Gordon Brown will make an exception and actually show up for work?

    Con Artists says:

    Becky Br00ks has been in and out if court this week… Why nothing written about this ?

    Owen Jones and the Temple of Doom says:

    How much do you earn from your writing? Enough to live in a nice comfy middle class area? How about housing some of the poor you claim to care about? What’s that? No fucking chance? You can’t allow riff raff into your home when you’re having dinner parties with Laurie and Polly?

    Woodward and Bernstein says:

    Only those with something to hide or an agenda to push seek to control the press.


  11. 19
    Franky v Dave says:

    I reckon Dave will have his work cut out with this New Pope. Not only does he consider the Falklands as Argentinian soil but he also does not approve of Gay marriage and gay adoption.

    Two out of Three ain’t bad mind.

      genghiz the kahn says:

      Did he carry out some sort of inquiry into the NHS?

      Meanwhile Miliband starts talking about regional banks, just as the Spanish and Germans did, and find out that their continental banking system was just as fucked as ours.

      Did the Hunt teach Voodoo Economics 1001 at Harvard or was that just Balls?

        Mike says:

        Hamish Mc Rae of the Indy pointed out we do no have a banking crisis we have a regional banking crisis-Northern Rock, Bradford and Bingley, HBOS all lent money for a housing bubble. RBS lent money to everyone while Lloyds, Barclays and HSBC were relatively soun. Standrad Chartered was in good shape. Spain is a good example where regional banks have been pressurised into lending money to schemes many of which were over sold.

      Will says:

      newspapers should be allowed to publish whatever story they want.

      Even if that means people like Christopher Jeffries and Robert murat are wrongly implicated, however individuals should equally be able to sue newspapers for large sums of money if they unfairly implicate someone and not just get £10,000 pounds in damages, if the damages was equal to the newspapers sales on that day, then they would take more care in stories.

      Publish what you like but expect to face heavy financial damages if you get to wrong.

        SP4BS says:

        what would they pay if Christopher Jeffries ended up dead?

        Trouble is, they have the money to pay for better lawyers.
        Unless of course they’re on the trail of someone rich and able to screw them over. I’m thinking of Archer and Saville there.

          Plod Tactics says:

          It was the Police who stitched up Christopher Jeffries. It’s a common tactic of there’s if they do not have enough evidence to make a charge stick to brief the press off the record in the hope that the headlines will encourage witnesses/past victims to come forward.

          No one complains when it works ie Savile, West etc

          Rip van Wrinkle says:

          Then charge all newspapers an annual levy that can be used by the likes of Jeffries in such cases.

      Can we start to express this as a percentage of our total energy needs.

      Dividing out electricity is like saying inflation is based on only Tesco prices.

      Do not fall for the statistics of the biased proponents.

        They are expressed as a percentage of our electricity needs, what could be clearer?

        Wind is supplying 1.5 % of our electricity needs which should not be confused with total energy needs as that is a totally different thingy which takes into account gas/petrol/diesel/ etc that are not used to generate electricity. Things like central heating, cars, lorries, planes, iron works, mines, ships, factories and the the BBC

          Energy is energy. The means to transport it to the user is immaterial.

          Why differentiate?

          If someone created a bio diesel would you think it was right to compare it only to the supply of heating diesel?

          “like central heating, cars, lorries, planes, iron works, mines, ships, factories and the the BBC”

          Central heating – ground source heating is electric. All others too wasteful.
          Cars – will be moving to electricity
          Lorries – vs. frieght by electrified rail
          planes vs. electrified trains
          Iron works vs. recycling by electric arc furnaces, rolling mills
          Mines – They use electricity! Even some drag lines use electricity.
          Ships – I’ll give you that one
          Factories – Huge electricity usage.
          BBC – That is not a need.

      So that would mean that gas is producing 38.5% ?

      Now if that info can be got into the part of HMP Wandsworth where that Huhne scum is existing that would be excellent.

      (The other lags should be made aware that their mums and loved ones are facing higher fuel bills and bleaker lives as a result of that guy)

    Anyone have a problem with Tim Loughton’s speech?

    The implication is that they can disclose the details of the surgery subjects in the house. Is he also mirroring the behaviour of his constituent and ridiculing him.

    This is a criminal matter. If that fails him, then he has to suck it up like all of us, that are failed by the Police.

    The answer is never to fall to the abusers level.

    Maybe the MPs need to look at their own recorded behaviour before they take matters into their hands and take public revenge. Frustration at the authorities is not an excuse. If it is a valid excuse then please confirm this, so that we can publicise our MPs disgusting behaviour.

    Nobody gives a fuck about this any more. Dave is finished and so are the Tories. He didn’t win last time and can’t recall last time a sitting government improved its share of the vote – if they did its because they were popular – he isn’t.

    Labour to come in borrow more, spend more, enter stage left IMF. Labour doesn’t have the balls to make the necessary changes as they would upset their natural vote – unions, public sector, benefit recipients. In 1910 £1 bought $7, its now less than $1.5, $ parity is where we are headed because the weak leftist generations of the 20th century. The socialist generation sold its children’s future.

      You are an economic doom-mongerer, who feels like many on here that a competent UK could be built. Run by UKIP for the people, not fleecing them for money. Just as a better thought for the day what if UKIP overtake the LDs in the local council elections, will they be included on an equal footing for the run-up for 2015. If so they will get the 37 MPs, or more, as indicated earlier in a chart from a poster based on the Eastleigh result spreading around the country.

        Nah. We’re definitely fucked.

        UKIP = a giant distraction as with anything re Europe.

        A true Tory Govt would have dealt with the planning laws to spur construction, axed the union-led public sector jobs, capped all benefits and made them all stringently means tested and threatened to withdraw from treaties unless control over borders/immigration restored forthwith and built the bloody T3 at Heathrow to create jobs and economic activity.

        vote Bunga Bunga. What’s the worst that could happen?

    Having turned the BBC into a propaganda machine, our leftie aristos now wish to do the same with the rest of the media.

    It’s like the French Revolution in reverse – and the price of booze rather than that of bread provoking riots in the street.

    We need a guillotine motion tout de suite.
