Happy April Fools

Guido’s exclusive that Alex Belardinelli, henchman to Ed Balls, is to be replaced by Damian McBride, was always destined to remain exclusive.

Some people have no sense of humour:

Others revealingly project their own Machiavellian ways:

Not today…

        “QUOTE OF THE DAY.

        Ed West poses a fundamental question…

        “..how do the not-very-intelligent survive in an information-based free-market economy? Until the Left deals with that in an honest, non-PC way, they’ll continue to fail the vulnerable.”

        The Left, “Government of the thick, by the thick, for the thick.”

      In 2010 Duncan Smith was due to appear in a gimmicky TV series called Tower Block of Commons where MP’s were supposed to share the lifestyle of people on benefits. He pulled out after one day of filming due to his wife’s health problems.

      He should have carried on with the filming as planned. It would have been interesting to see how he coped with the stress of family illness whilst living on a run-down council estate. It would have been interesting to see if he could afford the fares to visit his wife in hospital, if she was in hospital, without going without food.

      People who live on benefits do not have the option of calling a halt to the filming to go and look after their loved ones in comfortable surroundings. They have no escape. They have to cope. I do not want to malign his wife, but I understand that he then took 6 months off work to care for her. How many working people would be able to do that?

      The man is a sham. From his fake CV, his so-called Christian beliefs, his crocodile tears in Glasgow to this most recent farcical comment – deliberate, vicious, deceit

    Obviously, the people who take handouts they don’t deserve should be the first to take a cut.

    So let’s start by talking about someone who lives off the state and has little experience of the world of work you and I know.

    He is 58 years old and has suckled upon the publicly-funded teat for most of his life.

    He’s signed on the dole. He’s had four children and received child benefit for all of them. He has put them each through private school, too.

    His wife hasn’t worked since they married, except for 15 months in which he got her a job paid by the taxpayer.

    He and his colleagues eat and drink food you subsidise in a palace you pay for, he is driven around in a car you own, and when he is too old to ‘work’ any more you will pay for him to have a better pension than you, too.

    He started out at the age of 21 with six years of taxpayer-funded military service, during which he acted as bag-carrier to a Major-General.

    Then in 1981, aged 27, he left the Army and signed on the dole for several months.

      Furthermore, it appears to have escaped your notice that throughout the Blair/Brown years the highest rate of tax was 40%.

      Idiot Brown only raised that to 50% a matters of days before he was finally ejected from office in order to lay a bear trap for Cameron.

      Would you perhaps be so much happier if the Chancellor further reduced the top rate to match that of the Great Financial Imbecile?

      £53 wouldn’t even meet the cost of a haircut for Oberfuhrer Duncan-Smith.

      This loathsome hypocrite of a man is simply implementing the most basic tenet of the English Tory Party (that’s ‘Nazi’ to you and me) which is to persecute the plebs to the greatest limit possible. The ultimate goal is to strip them of any social assistance at all, in the hope that they are driven to such extremities that they have no option but to top themselves.

      The Tories, judgemental and blinkered, bigoted and self-serving as they are, are not so stupid that they haven’t managed to draw the logical conclusion from even the most superficial attempt at social analysis, and that is: that there is a considerable section of society that realistically can only be categorised as ‘unemployable’, however reluctant one might be to recognise this obvious truth, and for whatever reasons. It is this section of society, not worthy of being classed as ‘vulnerable’, that the more unscrupulous of our politicians always target for demonisation when they are attempting to divert attention from their ministerial inadequacies.

      Duncan-Smith is particularly despicable in that he has the gall to call himself a Christian. How can a man consider himself a Christian when he is directly responsible for so many suicides in this country, and will doubtless bring about many more over the next two years?

    We talked today about politics. He said he voted labour because mp’s, in his day were working class like him, flat caps , who understood hard work, self sufficiency and decency.

    Nowadays he says there are more flashy millionaires amongst labour mps than amongst the tories .

    His biggest complaint is that there are no longer any labour mps who have worked at any job other than being an mp and he doesn’t regard that as a job!!

    He thinks mps nowadays are there to milk the system for themselves and sod we decent folk.

    This is the problem . No working class person believes labour is the party for them. Corrupt , troughing, liebour knows it. That’s why they’ve tried to create the welfare state to vote for them instead. Question is will they succeed in the long term?!

    In 2010 Channel 4 aired a series called Tower Block of Commons, where 4 MP’s were asked to spend eight days and nights with four families who are unemployed and thus on benefits. IDS lasted less than twenty four hours as his wife was diagnosed with cancer. He would have obviously known that she would have been in for consultations and tests, so it begs the question as to why he went on the programme at all. Leaving his wife aside, it could have been nothing more than a publicity stunt in the run up to the general election.
    IDS, and all his tory mates live a lifestyle fully funded by the taxpayer and therefore has no conception of poverty or the need to go without. He said he could live on £53 a week because he knows damn well he will never have to. In reality he wouldn’t last a pico second and I suggest that all tories live on £53 a week until the next general election with their expenses backed up by receipts only with no allowances payable.

      That’s not remotely amusing – you’ll have got people’s hopes up and they’ll be disappointed.

        Yes, I do apologise for that. It was very cruel of me to get people’s hopes up like that.

          You did, and it was! My boss Satan was a bit flustered by it too as he hasn’t got Blair’s room ready for him yet.

      We have simply got to keep these eastern Mediterraneans in their place .

      If we do not the consequences will simply be to horrendous to contemplate.

      People in the West who have paid ridiculously high prices for houses they only bought to turn a quick buck will lose thousands as will people who spend their time looking at Bank statements showing silly figures indicating monopoly style money .

      A lot of people will find themselves driving around in uninsured cars when the insurance companies fail but that is no reason to clobber the poor old taxpayer the majority of whom would be quite happy to keep their car at home for a couple of days whilst they find a new insurer safe in the knowledge that they will have lower taxes in the future
