Tory Brain Drain as Labour Beef Up Attack

The cynics amongst you might think it’s an interesting time for CCHQ stalwart Nick Park to jump to the private sector.

The Tory head of research and attack crafter is off to energy giants Centrica.

The loss of the best part of decade’s experience is a blow for the Tories.

Meanwhile Labour are beefing up their attack team for the coming digital battle. Obama’s rapid rebuttal unit “backroom Brit” Matt McGregor:

“McGregor was responsible for the digital rapid response unit that attacked Mitt Romney relentlessly, ensuring that any statement by the Republican was picked over and rebutted, often within minutes or hours.”

Could get bloody…

      Centrica are now obviously beefing up their rubuttal team for up and coming online comments about them ripping off the British Public in the coming ice age and defending obscene profit announcements.

        Just filth, pure filth says:

        Those ‘obscene’ profits you refer to are built into end user cost, thanks to government renewables policy.

        For instance, the French are going to build two new nuclear power generators in the west country, as part of the deal, they will be allowed to charge double the amount they normally charge.
        Why?
        To make wind and solar power look economically, more competitive than they actually are and ‘green energy’ more attractive than it really is.
        The LabLibCon gang all agree this is the way to go, to hell with the poor, old and vulnerable.

          We’re all immigrants. All people everywhere are immigrants – because one day hundreds of years ago somebody cam there. So there is no such thing as a society. Because it makes no difference if you’re part of a small group who came 150 years ago who then became Americans or if you’re one of 10 million illegal immigrants from Mexico determined not to assimilate. Strangely enough hit13r had the same feelings – society is all about bloodlines not culture – guess he was right about that one thing.

          Yes – some people moving to the US a century ago, forming a settled society where everyone assimilated and paid their own way is exactly the same as 3 millions unemployed bulgarians moving to UK to get free healthcare, housing, education.

          Trust me, it’s nothing to do with me wanting to break up traditional society and cultures where people are self-reliant and patriotic. No, no, I wouldn’t do that. I did see new labour did it to rub your noses in it, but me, I’m a nice guy.

      Well immigration has ruined England.

      As it happens Obama and Abbott are both far too simple minded, even if both went to elite universities (I wonder if any special criteria was used??) – immigration can be a good or bad thing. Many Americans migrated to the US in the 20th century determined to assimilate, become Americans, learn English, uphold the ideals of freedom and capitalism. Today immigrants are far more likely to want to spread 1sl4m or get the free education and healthcare.

      For the history books at least it is good that morons like Abbott make their position, one which harms the English working class so badly, plain for all to see. It is probably too late to save the country now, though.

    Vote UKIP -- Get rid of the LIBLABCONNERS says:

    It needs to get bloody.
    Labour left the economy in an appalling mess.
    Camoron’s LIBCONS have been in power for 3 years. They have pussyfooted around with pretend cuts.
    The Deficit last year was £120 bn, The Deficit this year will be £120 bn. The Deficit next year is budgetted to be £ 120 bn.
    Mr. Carney will soon be in the B of E. quantitatively easing our way to rampant inflation.
    But the Government still needs to balance the books FFS, even if it is using monopoly money.

    What the fuck is the point of this ineffective PC Coalition?

    Might as well let Labour back in to finish bankrupting the economy, then perhaps we can have a fresh start in 2020.
