Baldamort’s Showdown With Labour Rebels
Liam Byrne Meeting With “Friends of Benefits” Right Now

An awkward afternoon for Baldamort, putting it lightly. Last week that well known Labour MP Ian Mearns quit as Ivan Lewis’ PPS, as over 40 of his Labour colleagues rebelled over Liam Byrne’s decision to abstain on the welfare sanctions vote.  The party’s hardline “friends of benefits wing are baying for blood against one of the few Shadow Cabinet members to understand that Labour are on the wrong side of the handout arguement. They are meeting with him at 4pm to, er, discuss their differences. Oh to be a fly on the wall…

          We need to rename benefits as charity because that’s what it is. This may stop some of the spongers from claiming it.

          • The Labour party was formed and run by working people to promote their rights.

            It’s now run by people who have never had a proper job to promote the rights of people who will never have a proper job, all paid for by the working people it used to represent.

            Whose idea was that?

            You could call it a handout for fuck-all, given to workshy scrounging chav-scum and they would still claim it. I was on it a couple of times in the past but it never bothered me because I knew that I would pay it back a hundred times over in tax. Maybe that’s the answer, you can only take out a third of what you have put in.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”
