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…

    Byrne left the note saying “there’s no money left”

    He should send a copy to all the Labour MPs who still don’t understand this.

    V1le, vicious Labour ruined my Country says:

    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?

    A depositor walks into a Cyprus bank. “This is a stickup” says the bank teller.

  27. 27

    At the Bank of Cyprus, what you give is 10% more than what you get back.

    What is it about ‘there’s no money left’ that labour mp’s don’t understand?

    Cameron's annual £11billion foreign aid bonanza says:

    He should also send a copy (perhaps with a diagram) to David Cameron.

  30. 30
    Nogbad the Bad says:

    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.

  31. 31

    ****(in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least

    capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the

    members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded

    with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number

    of producers*

  62. 62

    Does that also include aliens like you Abbott?

  63. 63
    The Tosspot in Number 10 says:

    Okay, so my speech about cracking down on immigration began to unravel as soon as it was delivered. What’s new? That happens with all my speeches. My chums and I will still be dreaming up plenty more crap for the masses before the May elections. We think we could convince over 10 voters to go for the Tories instead of UKIP.

    And put in where? In Britain where the government prints money, lets inflation tick over target for years and sees the currency devalue by double-digit proportions?

    Singapore dollars, Swiss francs and New Zealand dollars look tasty to me.

    Cash in advance only.

  72. 72
    EU Watch says:

    CHF could be good choice, NZD has issues as they have been talking about doing the Cyprus thing down there as well recently.

    Gold is another possibility: Physical gold.

    The BitCoin approach is another, but am not completely convinced about the safety still: Not enough credibility just yet.

    UK banks would be safer than the Eurozone banks, but out of cash is the way forward, however not into bonds.

  73. 73
    Go on, have a laugh says:

    DWP leaflet for immigrants above says: To claim Maternity Allowance, you must have worked in the UK for at least A WEEK, earning at least £30 a week.

  76. 76

    Germany’s dream of total European domination is well on track with 6 countries now totally dependent on the German tit , and the green light for politicians to steal money directly from peoples bank accounts , to pay for their fuck ups , even more recession and hardship on the way , forcing yet more countries to get out the begging bowl and head to Brussels
    it’s all going to plan

    If they get back in, and they well could given the fluffy social democratic shite in charge, the canoe will roll over about half-way into their term. It would almost be worth it just to see the cultural Marxist shite getting violently purged.

    What a lot of entirely stupid haters; you people are truly laughable. I think this blog is wonderful however as a psychic latrine collecting all of this bile and foetid shit in one place and discouraging chomping morons from polluting saner blogs and sundry with their rancid verbiage. In Victorian England you needed to pay a penny to view the loonies in Bedlam asylum. With the advent of the internet you can do the same thing for free, cyber-wise, by visiting this blog. Keep up the bad work. It’s amusing sometimes to see how the other half lives. There but for the grace of God and a triple digit IQ go I, eh?

    McCluskey is not spot on. He’s just basically saying what his ultimate ambition is – to set up a rival super-hard left proxy communist party fronted by Unite. Unite is simply too big for it’s boots.

    It’s just like watching maggots wriggling about in a joint of meat rotting on the bone. Completely unlovely to look at and yet so disgusting that it’s difficult to tear your eyes away.

    ‘Let’s not mince our words: this is a bunch of self satisfied, (money grubbing) Labour socialists who think they can spend your money better than you can, make decisions better than you can and tell you what to do and we should never, ever let that lot near government again.

    After seeing this image of Baldemort, made me think of other villain’s in films and associate them to MP’s.

    Shadowy Chancellor Wormtongue Balls has got to be mentioned. His comments during PMQ all the time whispering in Ed Millibands ear. One minute talking to Gordan Brown as his best mate, then the next stabbing him in the back as soon as he leaves office.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
