New Statesman Officially More Evil Than North Korea

Sabre-rattling nuke nut Kim Jong-Un might be threatening to annihilate his enemies, but at least he and his communist friends pay their interns. North Korea News is advertising on W4MP for a part-time editor to carry out online housekeeping such as uploading content and, er, “fact-checking”. Unlike the poor, exploited unpaid interns over at the Staggers‘ progressive workhouse, the successful candidate will earn $500-a-month. It’s official…

    Ed Miliband's Parasite Party (for skivers, not strivers) says:

    The facts are whatever we say they are.

    For example, in government, we said, “Tax cuts take money out of the economy”, but now we say, “tax cuts will boost the economy!”

    We condemn the Tory-led government for borrowing too much, but the alternative we propose involves borrowing even more.

    Facts are purely for our convenience. “We are at war with Murdoch, we have always been at war with Murdoch.”

    the mystic mould with the appearance of the face of Jesus says:

    I used to work with a guy who was really intelligent, knowledgeable, clever socially and made up his own mind about stuff. I used to think “Gosh, if this is one guy I met, just how bright can people be out there ?” There must be some guys out there who have a super-intellect such that they are able to seamlessly manipulate people to bring about situations they desire.
    Now I think I was just fortunate to meet this person and there are no people out there who are that bright.
    Especially the fuckwits in our Parliamentary Democracy

    “Meanwhile, people continue to die in this country as a direct result of ATOS and benefit cuts.”

    This is true. I had me benefits cut to only £26,000 and I had to move out of me free mansion in Chelsea. Me and all me kids are now in a five-bed house in Kensington. The shame well killed me.

    Yeah, uh, Karl. Bad news. I don’t know how to break this to you, but we tested your ideas – quite thoroughly – and the results, er, weren’t all that good. There were one or two fatalities.

    The Sanhedrin says:

    You want the real story on who killed “that fella,” before it, too, is suppressed?

    It was our idea. We put Pontius Pilate up to it. We told him, go through the rigmarole of telling the people in the courtyard they had a choice of who gets off and who gets nailed, but that we would pack the courtyard to make sure it came out “the right way,” just in case there might be anybody there who was wondering WTF was going on, with a Roman washing his hands; in short, it was all one big stitch-up. Old-Poncho-Goy couldn’t really be arsed to worry about some itinerant preacher whose only real crime, so far as the Romans were concerned, was causing a bit of a scene “turning the tables” on the moneychangers, for which he would get three lashes, maybe six, depending on how the procurator felt that day. WE were the ones who really stood to lose, if people stopped obeying us because some rabbi told them we were hypocrites who sinned like mad, whilst telling everyone how to be ultra-pious and God forbid they do anything not kosher. We knew what was good for the ordinary innocent people of Ju*dea, and did the bidding of our Masters in Rome to help keep it that way. We got the job done, by convincing toga-boy it would be less trouble in the long run to see things our way.

    Of course, back then, we didn’t have newspapers telling everyone what was going on. The story only came out after the Temple was destroyed, and four “Good News” writers reported on it forty years later.

    From the Fabian Society.

    More bad news I’m afraid Karl.
    We’ve analysed the results and ending capitalism makes poor people poorer.

    I know! We were gobsmacked ourselves. But it’s true!
    And even more amazing..I mean this will blow your mind.
    We found giving poor people more money doesn’t make them rich. And spending a lot of money on something, doesn’t make it any better.

    New Labour spent 10 times the health budget and 5 times the welfare budget.
    Yet apparently we now have MORE people below the breadline than in feudal times.
    And after all the billions and billions and pounds of health splurging its now 18 minutes quicker to be admitted to a hospital ward where you will die.

    I don’t know Karl. If you’ve any other ideas we’d love to try them because so far, everything we’ve tried is a crock.

    We can feed ourselves . Pretty easily if we choose to. We only farm some of our farmland. At present about 60% of our food is imports. But of the 40% at least half is stuff we want but can’t grow. Oranges, bananas, mango etc. some is just cheaper .. Argentinian bee for instance.

    And the u rewards farmers for the amount of land they have, not what they grow, so many farmers are rewarded for not doing much.

    We could easily be self sufficient if we wanted to.
    Why would we want to be? What benefit does that give us except compulsory rhubarb crumble at meal times?

    leveson was undoubtedly pompous , short sighted, and leftwing.

    I think the problem here is that he was too closely connected to Hacked-Off and so corrupted.

    The fact that militwit had utterly sold out to Hacked Off and virtually given over his labour leadership to hughgrant completely destroyed labour’s historical support for Free Press.

    Labour now can only be seen as supporters of a fascist suppression of the press which will, historically, be interpreted as a means to mask their fraudulent and corrupt leaching of the taxpayer.

Everything’s copasetic again! Come back!” And some assholes fall for it. Some broads keep going back to guys that wallop ‘em, too. But my mother raised no fool.

    When will you schmucks get what’s really going on?

    (Reuters) – Hedge fund titan STEVEN A. COHEN’S firm is paying $615.7 million to settle charges that it improperly traded in two stocks, in what is the largest-ever, insider trading settlement, U.S. securities regulators said on Friday.

    OK, I admit, this one’s not a name changer…he is however from the priest class!

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.”
