    Hugh Grant looks like that Miliband chap today

  11. 11

  17. 17
    Casual Observer says:

    Coming up to three years in power and all Cameron can do is still blame the previous government ?

      Plenty to blame them for, for the next generation

    • 20
      genghiz the kahn says:

      Thatcher has been blamed by Labour for all of the Uk’s problems since 1992.

      So what is your point?

      • 24
        Casual Observer says:

        Why sink to the level of the left.

        Thatcher did not create any problems.

        Continued rhetoric diverts from dealing with problems and shows that Cemerons leadership is unable to deal with anything.

        • 62
          Liam Byrne says:

          There’s no money left.

          • remember this says:

            It’s perfectly acceptable to blame the previous administration when Millibland and Balls, two of the main architects of Labour’s disasterous economic policies, sit on Labour’s front bench.

  18. 19
    Casual Observer says:

  27. 31

    Great disquiet because local councils will be forced to cut budgets, particularly pensions, and Labour activists are trying to stir up discontent and are creating illusion of disquiet.

      No, they don’t think we are all idiots.
      They think a good deal of us are idiots.
      The thing is what does one do?

      Many private homeowners are forced to downsize if a relative leaves home,or dies, and it no longer makes sense to keep on paying for a larger than necessary home.

    “gender empowerment” Are we back in the Eighties? My name’s Ben Elton. Goodnight!

  44. 53

  52. 66

    With EU members in crisis and skint the other members/mugs like the UK are going to be landed with a gigantic bill to make up the difference. No wonder Cameron has all of a sudden completely forgotten about his victorious victory in Brussels. How much is the UK going to be ordered to cough up?

    The Tories are dead and buried.

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.”
