Loongate: Where We Are

SWIVEL-EYED-GREG-BARKER

Last night the story broke that a senior Tory close to Cameron said of the EU Referendum and gay marriage backbench rebellions “It’s fine. There’s really no problem. The MPs just have to do it because the associations tell them to, and the associations are all mad, swivel-eyed loons.” It was reported by The Times and The Telegraph on their front pages in similar terms and also by the Mirror and Mail.

Sam Coates, James Kirkup, James Lyons and Tim Shipman are experienced journalists and will have known the likely repercussions of reporting an off the record / Lobby terms comment even without attribution. They set speculation running by describing the source of the comments as having “strong social connections” to the PM and as a “senior party” figure. For the record Guido has not spoken to any of the journalists concerned.

This morning Guido emailed Lord Feldman

Feldman has publicly denied being the source of the quote

feldman“There is speculation on the internet and on Twitter that the senior Conservative Party figure claimed to have made derogatory comments by the Times and the Telegraph is me.

“This is completely untrue. I would like to make it quite clear that I did not nor have ever described our associations in this way or in any similar manner. Nor do these alleged comments represent my view of our activists. On the contrary in the last eight years of working for the party, I have found them to be hard working, committed and reasonable people. They are without question the backbone of the party. I am very disappointed by the behaviour of the journalists involved, who have allowed rumour and innuendo to take hold by not putting these allegations to me before publication. I am taking legal advice.”

Not sure why Lord Feldman thinks the journalists concerned should have put the allegations to him when they didn’t name him and in any event he says he didn’t say the words concerned.

The journalists concerned are abiding by the conventions of the Lobby and not confirming the source whilst standing by the story. Downing Street “supports Lord Feldman’s position” and denies that anyone in Downing Street was the source of the quote. Which of course is an allegation no one has made.

Guido has not received any legal notices…

        Yet again we have one of the chosen ones featuring in a story of gross hypocrisy, deceit and utter contempt for proper governance in this country on this blog.

        If there are any to be labelled as “mad swivel eyed loons” it’s his kind. When will you lot on here start to realise the damage that they have done. They are spoilers and destroy countries from within, from all sides of the political spectrum. They only look out for one kind only. Theirs.

          Notice how in the past 72 hours the establishment have ‘created’ many ‘Divide & thus Rule over’ “stories”. My oh my the establishment must be pretty desperate along with the other trick of creating the illusion; that there is some kind of seperation between the 4 pillars of the state – thats is being ‘seen to throw dirt at one another’ – huh! the worn out old trick to keep the public divided amongst themselves while the elite control the divisions! There’s a word eh the divisions!?

            It is with deep regret that I have been informed that the Conservative party, has within it’s ranks, conservatives ( shudder ) and is not yet left wing enough, for my progressive Guardian friends and colleagues.

            I wish to make my position entirely clear regarding these people.

            There is no place in the New Conservative party for you and your outdated ‘swivel eyed loon’ notions.

            My New Conservative party represents the ordinary folk of this land, the meterosexual chattering class, the LGBT community, the Green elitist’ and of course, the hard working ‘new British family’ who have tirelessly transformed and enriched us all.

            It is time to embrace the new world order and that includes the post democratic EU era and all the wonderful things that it brings.

            Sentimentalist, populist ideas such as freedom, democracy and patriotism, must be swept aside, as we in the New Conservative movement, build a brave new world for the greater good.

            I trust this statement has clarified my position regarding the conservative ‘loons’ who still haunt my brave new party.

      And the swivel-eyers claim that union members are looneys, and it takes one of them to say the actually truth. Most Tory hard core supporters are just people with their heads stuffed full of Daily Wails, with a gobby mouth, constantly coming out with inane crap.

      And he’d be right. Many party stalwarts are claret-swilling red-faced men in redder corduroys and gin-soaked old crones with blue rinses. They’re suspicious of foreigners, the young, different ethnicities and more. I can’t tell if their eyes swivel but they’re certainly lunatics.

      Many of these people have fled to UKIP, the new home of reactionary rejects.

      It’s the same with Labour too where many activists are rabid lefties who think the world owes them a living whilst they cling to bunkum ideologies. As for Lib Dem party officials, one word: sandals.

        People getting on with their lives, paying their taxes and keeping the peace, are loons.

        On the other hand, sane people believe in the Euro, love the EU, want to marry gay people, love employing cheap nannies and maids, think wind turbines are marvellous additions to the landscape, want to increase heating bills for the poor, cannot – for the life of them – understand why anyone wouldn’t want more people from Romania and Bulgaria to settle in Hyde Park, and are so broad-minded that they know anyone who thinks different is crazy.

        This is why support for the sane people keeps growing, while support for the loons is collapsing.

      Surely the point about Feldman is what qualifications he has to be party co-chairman of the Conservatives apart from probably having been chairman of the Brasenose Ball Committee. Oh wait a minute his chum at Brasenose was one D Cameron. It stinks of the same jobs for the boys racket that allowed Blair to make his former flat mate ‘Charlie’ Falconer Lord Chancellor. No wonder party membership has shrunk in the last eight years from 300,000 to 130,000. At this rate of decline they’ll soon all be able to cram into an average sized football ground. Cameron’s project to completely destroy the Conservative Party is a dazzling success story.

      If my understanding is correct his legal corporate persona is based in california and possibly domiciled in a state such as delaware arizona or montana so short of physically uplifting him from the uk public highway , bundling him into a ZIL car and imprisoning him without trial secretly in the Lubjianka ( or Belmarsh as it is now called )I believe that l the UK legal system’s hands are tied — unless they formally ask Uncle Sam for the physical extradition of an inanimate corporate entity from US soil which to my knowledge has never been done before — not to mention being a logistical nightmare!

      Yes but if he had any sense, he would be too busy fixing the planning system. Instead he missed the point and changed the dimensions of extensions.

      The overriding issue in planning is the activism and attacks on the applicants. As soon as anyone wants a extension, or anything on privately held land, their name is for ever searchable on the internet along side their address. They become the subject for the internet attack groups, that live to hurt others.

      Objectors publish on websites the applicants details to put pressure on them to withdraw the application. It is even impossible to use an agent as the owners name must be, by law, on the public application form. Shadow websites can not be stopped from holding copies of this information for ever.

      This did not matter before the recent use of the internet by Councils, but now it is beyond control. Anyone careful (like the ones with money) will not risk using the planning system.

      Why is it even necessary? Who ever owns a building should not alter the ability to get a permission. It is the building, not the temporary owner, that is changed.

            Pm had an interview with a lovely articulate lady Tory grassroots worker, who did not sound the least bit mad or loony, being the radio it was not possible to see if her eyes swivelled but I reckon she had a confident steely stare. Anyway she made her case eloquently.

            In good BBC balancing they then interviewed Mr Grant Shapps who is her chairman and he proceeded to praise the lovely lady and trashed everything she (and conservatives) stand for.

            The leadership has clearly still not got it. They would rather have a good write up in Pink News than listen to the membership.

          No, actually, UKIP are attracting votes from people who realise that none of the LibLabCon parties support the United Kingdom.

          It’s called the United Kingdom Independence Party because it seeks to destroy the tribalism of the three main parties – the Tories have retreated into England, and Labour are retreating into Scotland. Who gives a fuck where the Liberals are going – But I suppose the West Country could rise again.

          The reason the Labour fascists attacked Nigel in Scotland is that they know he is a threat to their one-party rule. UKIP threaten all the established parties. The more the Euro-lovers panic in the face of UKIP, the more obvious it becomes to our fellow subjects that the people who hate UKIP are in favour of destroying the United Kingdom. So carry on, Euro-loons – you are consciousness raising.

    The clique in the three parties are working to a globalist agenda. The party structures are just modes of convenience for them to do what they want once in power. It’s then just placating the ‘swivelling loons’ with a few lies and the odd vote to please them to keep them on their leads and in the dark.

    Thankfully even the most dense village idiot is beginning to see that something is not quite right, where the politicians routinely ignore the will of the people and find democracy an inconvenience.

    Anyone with an ounce of self respect would have left the Tories ages ago.

            Very true. Idiot fisherman in my village dredged the harbour & surrounds without consulting marine engineers.

            The sea promptly denuded all the sand from the beach,left bare rock for a year(never seen that before in 20 odd years)& put all the sand back in the harbour plus a lot more.

            Sandy beach was deposited back by the sea over the winter. Harbour redredged by proper experts & now little & often keeps the harbour in good health.

            You don’t need to be an engineer to work that one out? They probably consulted the local council.

          • Point of Information says:

            When London last flooded, and New Palace Yard was under water for an afternoon, the dredging of the river close to Tower Bridge was partly to blame.

            Most of the time it is Ok, but when you get the right high pressure conditions over the North Sea, coincident with strong high tides as tends to happen around the equinox, and the wind is also in the right direction, flood risk is increased further if there is more water allowed to surge up the channel as a result of dredging.

            This is not meant to sound like eco-loon stuff, but was figured out on the Thames ages back. Basic estuary management 101 for London.

          • Point of Information says:

            And of course I meant Old Palace Yard.

            Where I believe our hosts other met his fate about 300 years or so before the last lot of flooding. :-)

            Ferryside in Carmarthenshire had the same experience back in the mid 1980s, when some local tory yachting loons wanted to create a harbour at the side of the end of the Towy estuary, and Carmarthen Town up river had instantly their biggest flood in about a couple of hundred years. Some said, unofficially, the breakwater they got planning to build held up the flow of the river. The upper Towy flood plain floods most years, but that was something else that year!

    Colin churchman says:

    Councillor Anderson

    Opposition leader of the Tory group Thurrock

    This is a statement of fact, I wish to convey to, not only yourself, but to every member of Thurrock Council and various media outlets and the Tory eastern branch office, I do this to bring to your attention the facts concerning one of your members.

    I would begin with how I started my complaint, roughly 8 months ago I started a process of a standards compliant against CIIr Redsell in the regard of this member making an improper declaration in which she provided concerning a planning application, the application was for the [wooden hut social club 09/00235/FUL,] which at the time was owed by Mr T Pardoe, the facts are, and I will provide them within this e-mail, that her precise declaration was that she had been to the wooden hut on many occasions. She subsequently voted for approval of the said application. And this is the basis of my standards compliant. I would point out that her declaration was, a personal declaration, when it was obvious, she should have made a prejudicial declaration and then remove yourself from the proceedings, this would have been the correct procedure, why she did not do this, I can only leave you to make up your own mind

    50. DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST
    1. Councillor Redsell declared a personal interest in respect of
    Application 09/00235/FUL, as she had been in the wooden hut
    Many times.

    I have included four photographs that were taken precisely one-week before the planning application involving the [wooden hut social club ] that was heard, and are time stamped and were included in my initial complaint, to clearly show this member misled the committee and clearly show she was not truthful in her declaration. Please remember, she had said she had been in the wooden hut social club many times but failed to include she also had been in the applicants house many times where, these photographs were taken a week before the application was heard

    [Incidentally the gentleman in the photographs are of Mr T Pardoe and the location is in the applicants house,] owner of the wooden hut.

    The outcome of the standards compliant that Thurrock Council’s legal Department dealt with, state because the length of time that has passed the member concerned could not be by natural law expected to remember the incident, all because three years had passed.

    I would like to bring your attention to an abundance of recent prosecutions that are now in the media many going back as far as the mid-60s that have been successfully prosecuted , purely by way of witness statements and allegations and without evidence, very much unlike the evidence I have submitted to Thurrock Council’s legal Department, the four photographs that, as I’ve mentioned were time stamped and were also accompanied by a written and signed affidavit from the individual who had taken them, I checked with Grays police station and spoke to a representative there and he assured me this would be sufficient evidence to begin an investigation ,and this point was clearly pointed out to Thurrock’s legal Department, another point I would make at this juncture is that the legal Department at Thurrock did not at any time question or denied the evidence that I passed on to them, I think it’s fair to say , that what was presented was undeniable

    So the position I now find myself in, is although the information supplied with my complaint is correct and undeniable, Thurrock’s legal Department have not questioned the validity of the information supplied they still refuse to further the complaint on the farcical premise, of the length of time from which it occurred. I would agree with the legal Department that any member concerned would have difficulty remembering an event that happened three years ago, but when you consider her declaration, is still on record and the fact photographs that are time stamped, and recorded the event I find their excuse somewhat hard to swallow.

    Now CIIr Anderson if you recall some time ago this member was also photographed in Brentwood the location I believe was that Mary Green Manor Hotel, in the company of a property developer they depicted the member with Thurrock Council planning maps laid out across a table in front of them, flouting Council protocols, incidentally with no officer present, the outcome of this indiscretion was you CII r Anderson to remove the member from the planning committee yourself, I also recall a comment you made at the time that a smear campaign had been instituted against this member.

    Mr Anderson CIIr Redsell requires nobody to constitute a smear campaign against her, you only have to look at the facts, and I think you will come to the same conclusion as any right minded person, she smears herself.

    Some of CIIr Redsell comments which initially made me start my complaint.

    “More importantly, for those who feel they have evidence of wrongdoing on my part, or who wish to contribute to or influence any forthcoming investigation, now is the time to stand up and be counted. I am no longer prepared to tolerate any more damage to my reputation and am willing to account for my actions honestly and openly.

    “Many reports that have appeared in the public domain have been riddled with inaccuracies and in my opinion have been designed to deliberately discredit me.
    “Latterly, there have been accusations of misconduct on my part as a result of my meeting on 31 March 2011 for lunch with a long-term friend; by whom my opinion was sought on a planning idea. I should add that I was completely unaware that I was to be consulted on this matter until our meeting. Moreover, the issue discussed was no more than a proposal and not in relation to any planning application. Nonetheless, as a result of this incident, you will be aware that I removed myself from the Council’s Planning Committee in order to preserve the integrity of both myself and the said committee.
    “With regard to both these issues, I feel there has been ample opportunity for any concerned individuals or commentators to make a complaint about me to you in your capacity as the council’s Monitoring Officer and for a Standards charge to be brought against me under the Members’ Code of Conduct.
    “Despite having much to say via the anonymity of web based blog sites, it would appear that no individual/s have been able or willing to make a substantiated complaint to you; clear evidence in my opinion that there is no substance to the scurrilous commentary by certain individuals, some of whom are employed in the local media.
    “I am resolute that at no time have I fallen foul of either the law or the Members’ Code of Conduct as a result of my behaviour as an elected Councillor. Nonetheless, as no other individual has seen fit to properly do so, I am writing to inform you that I wish to refer these matters for investigation by the Council’s Standards Committee, at the conclusion of which I expect to be cleared of these most serious allegations.
    “As mentioned, I am certain that at no time have I abused my position, acted with dishonest intent, or inappropriately attempted to advantage any organisation/individual. Neither have I sought to influence the decision-making process beyond that which is acceptable of somebody in elected office.
    Nonetheless, for whatever reason or motive, there appears to be continued innuendo regarding the way I have at times conducted myself. I therefore request that you commence proceeding to fully, openly, and robustly examine whether I have breached the Members’ Code of Conduct, or the law, in my dealings with matters relating to ICG Chemicals and/or by my actions on the 31March 2011.
    “Unusually, I have gone to the lengths of issuing this letter to the local media. My motive for doing so is to make entirely clear that I have not acted improperly at any time and have only ever sought to discharge my duties as an elected councillor to the best of my abilities.

    As the author of this E-mail, I would like to make it perfectly and as crystals clear that at the time of

    CIIr Redsell making this statement she was of course in full knowledge of the evidence, I present within this e-mail, and I think it shows her full contempt, and disregard for speaking the truth, and her ability to routinely make non-truthful statements is a matter of routine to herself.

    CIIr Redsell also stated after a self-referral investigation, that, any member of the public who wish to contribute evidence about her, please step forward with your evidence and supply it to the legal Department, well I have done so and what happened. She also, made the comment if memory serves me correctly

    At my time with Thurrock Council I have done nothing wrong, criminally, morally, or ethnically I would suggest the very fact these photographs exist, would suggests that statement to be disingenuous at the very least.

    So as to throwing down the gauntlet, which was picked up by myself, it now seems Thurrock Council’s legal Department and CIIr Redsell, when presented with overwhelming evidence to the contrary seem to not want to honour her remarks. Which I think is par for the course

    I now ask you CIIr Anderson since you are now aware of the evidence that was presented and I believe undeniable, I ask you precisely what you intend to do in this regard, it is my personal opinion at the very least, both yourself as leader and the member concerned should issue a statement on these circumstances with a full explanation of what you intend to do in resolving this distasteful event and for this member to fully explain why she was engaging socially with this gentleman a week before his planning application was being heard, and precisely why she did not declare this at the appropriate time and follow the correct and rightful procedure.

    I have no doubt that you will quote the legal departments opinion” in an attempt to pacify my concerns, and to absolve yourself of this matter, but if you note I am personally asking you what you are prepared to do as to this members leader, in the face of the undeniable evidence presented to you, I must again draw your attention to the outrageous statements made by this member, at no time in my tenure at Thurrock Council have I done anything of a criminal nature or in doing anything morally or ethically wrong, as I think you would agree that is not the case, and I would believe it would be perceived by everybody as a blatant untruth

    I am sending this e-mail as I’ve already mentioned, to all members precisely to affect embarrassment and I believe it will be to the embarrassment of every Tory member at Thurrock Council, it is up to you CIIr Anderson to exercise your integrity in this matter, which is now under scrutiny for everybody who is copied in to this e-mail to witness.

    If you decide to ignore this e-mail and take no action against this member on the premise of the legal Department’s decision, knowing the full weight of evidence against her it would clearly put you, I have no doubt in the same category and light as CIIr Redsell, and I think it’s fair to say of the same ilk, I also believe it would cast a shadow over the remaining Tory members and reflect a total disregard for doing the right thing, it would also show utter contempt to everybody concerned.

    The reason for my timing in sending this e-mail is because I know that the Tory members have their AGM this week and, I’m sure, this matter can be debated and discussed amongst yourselves as to what appropriate action should be taken, I would reiterate, this complaint procedure took a total of eight months, the evidence factual and undeniable, I also feel that as a member of the public, I have been forced to take this unusual course of action out of sheer frustration but, was left with no other avenue ,then to write to you personally, so that everybody can see the outcome of your actions and integrity, personally if you decide not to take the appropriate an immediate actions involving this matter, I believe you should stand down.

    Lastly I would suggest that both CIIr Anderson and CIIr Redsell make a public apology, and that CIIr Anderson take on board the full implications of this matter personally, and not try to hide behind Thurrock’s legal Department, and please remember I have asked you CIIr Anderson personally to deal with this, and because of this, it is your integrity that is on the line, I hope given the information you will reflect and deliberate as to the consequences of your members totally unacceptable behaviour . And deal with this matter appropriately

    Yours Truthfully

          Sorry Hiss, I should have made the irony a little more obvious.

          Like can be a pejorative. :-)

          In Dave’s case, the like is because he is mostly harmless, without authority to do real damage (odd as he is Prime Minister) and it is relatively easy to see through his deceit. Perhaps a bit too easy.

          The only damage he is doing right now is to his own office, and the party he is currently a member of.

          He does appear to have failed completely in the European political arena, but to be fair, that blood bath claimed Blair’s scalp as well. Blair is a much superior caliber of politician than Dave, but do not read that as any more than statement of fact.

          Dave is also doing a very good job of allowing peoples perception to adjust. This is subtle, but could you imagine this period of history passing with someone like Blair in office ?

          a) We wouldn’t know which way is up
          b) We would have a lot more ‘suicides’ a la Kelly
          c) We would likely be on the receiving end of lots of UK body bags from Syr!a

          Dave is helping to properly discredit political correctness, and through apparent ineptness is opening the door to EU exit. That was properly opened by Barosso last year in the first UK would be like Norway / Switzerland if it left article. Barosso has killed the EU project :-)

          Not all of this is incompetence. There will be some design, but I think there has been a lot of cock up of late.

          I think it was Watson’s p3d0 pronouncements last year which set in Dave’s mind that the b/s was not worth continuing.

          Dave lost the psychological war right there. uTube vid shows this clearly. The Schofield list incident was the final nail.

          Dave is not a good decision maker when under pressure, but errs on side of caution by doing nothing. That is generally safer but does put you at a disadvantage when operating with smart risk takers.

          The failure to fix the economy post 2010 is what has settled the minds of the electorate.

          An elephant in the room is Dave’s involvement with Common Purpose. That should not be overlooked, but that apparatus might be being dismantled right now.

          In these odd times, I would take your questioning of my sanity as a compliment and not a slur. :-)

          Insanity is doing the same over and over expecting a different result.

          Trying a different approach is the only sane way to get a different result.

      Daniel Day-Lewis, Ben Stiller's older and handsomer brother, says:

      No, the film was called There Will Be Blood.

      Actually, my father (Professor Cecil Day Lewis, “no hyphen,” as he said he preferred), who among other things taught poetry, immediately recognised the allusion to the Aeneid– which few others did– and the reference is to Rome being overrun by invaders, the omen of which would be the Tiber bubbling and turning red, which Powell felt he was metaphorically seeing the first stages of. (And the likely result of said invasion would be the Tiber “turning red,” as well, it must be allowed– Nucky’s not off the hook on this deal; the rivers of the UK might end up turning red with blood, in his vision.)

    Farage on the other hand seems to me to be a guy who is gelling with the british public in no uncertain terms,in that what the british public desires.
    The british public wants an end to this bending the knee to the EUSSR bunch of unelected fools.
    The british public wants an end to unlimited peoples of other lands coming to this land to cream off benefits as a right.

      The American woman who now claims to be British doing the Sky paper review last night said that Gove had said yesterday afternoon that Dave was a Blairite.

      Little wonder then that Mandy has gone on the Telly to support Dave.

      One thing about Mandelson you can be sure of is that he is never straight.

      I wonder what the real reason is for him to come out on Dave’s side?

      UKIP less complicated to support, and more polite says:

      Is that a big surprise ?

      Analysis should be: Is Mandy’s support more or less doom laden than Gordon Browns ?

    Peter Mandelson is on telly defending Cameron and doing the PR for the Conservatives. Why is he being wheeled out to make the case for continued EU membership on behalf of a party he spent his entire life fighting?

    They hate her because she won says:

    That disgusting snake Mandelson has just been on Andrew Marr. Q. Do you think there should be a referendum on Europe? A. No I don’t because I don’t think it is in our interests to do so.
    He means in the interests of people like him, former EU Commission members given highly paid jobs on the EU gravy train after they have ben thrown out of UK Government for various sleazy reasons.
    He also repeatedly referred to UKIP as the UK Isoloation Party and stated that we have to be members of the EU to be part of the single market. He also stated that we need to remain members to retain influence in Europe.
    This is complete tosh. We do not need to be a member of the EU to trade with the EU. The EU sells more to us than we do to them. They are not going to start imposing trade barriers if we leave. It is not in their interest. As for influence, as a seperate country we have far more inflence in the world representing ourselves. As a small part of the EU our views are represented by people who are unelected by us and whose interest may be completely different from our own.
    It is clear that anyone who votes Labour is selling our country to Europe. I say selling, we are getting nothing for it. We are giving it away and paying for the privilege.
    We need to get the hell out now.

        He wasn’t called the “Dark Prince” for nothing!

        Apart from his grubby self serving reasons for wanting to remain in the EU, I’m afraid there are darker reasons to this when you consider that his father was J8wish.

        Remember, the EU project was constructed by the US (for that, read the chosen ones in NYC) out of The Marshall Plan after WWII as a bulwark against the statism (national socialism?) of the USSR. Remember, at the outset of WWII the Russians were aligned to national socialist Germany via the Anti-ComIntern Pact (Anti-COMmunist INTERNational). Those on NYC, that Mandelson is aligned with, certainly don’t like them national socialists, as they’re bad for business…isn’t that right Mandeslon?

        Look up the Communist International. They are in fact libertarian and right wing.

        I wonder how Dave Miliband is getting over there? Has he left yet?

          Anti-Comintern Pact = Germany & Japan v USSR

          Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact = Germany & USSR are friends.

        Why don’t we all give in to it, and stand as SNPs candidates, and everyone vote SNP throughout the UK. At least Scotland won’t then leave the union, and I think Alex Salmond would make a brilliant PM of the UK – and he will sort out the BBC for us while he is at it,

    Denmark ..."only Teardrops" ...how very apt for Cameron says:

    Cameron’s” strategy on Europe to gain influence to enable him to renegotiate UK’s terms is going in the right direction….the UK entry in the Eurovision got 23 pts and finsihed 19th getting votes from 7 countries compared to 2012 when the UK finished 25th with 12 pts and votes from only 4 countries

      If Bonnie wasn’t there, we have finished below Ireland. Lots of fun and games go on behind the scenes in this Eurovision song stuff, and only some to do about singing. And by the way, that Danish song was a bit lame I thought. Some of those eastern Euro songs were much better, after Bonnie ones of course. But Bonnie was stuffed before she opened her gob, due to all this Tory and UKIP nonsense going on at the moment over in-out in-out shake it all about EU palava.

    Thoughts from Mao Zedong says:

    One way to stimulate a peoples revolution to usher in a new political order of my design in an already economically developed country would be thus.

    i) Change the perception of the countryside in the eyes of the people. A simple way to do this would be by scattering symbols of utility and industry across the horizon. Large structures such as wind turbines as they would be innocuous enough for landowners to agree, and ugly enough to destroy the otherwise perceived beauty in the eyes of the people.

    ii) Urbanization requires transportation. Building additional road or railway through those areas to be urbanized would be ideal. There may be resistance when it is realized that such capital investment is unnecessary, but if the broader economics are framed correctly the investment should win support.

    iii) In parallel, create artificial and real shortage of accommodation for the masses. Inflating prices through a combination of reduced availability, increased population density and manipulation of the pricing mechanism to a level where wages cannot cover the cost would be recommended.

    Continuing to increase the population density, perhaps by uncontrolled immigration will be the final option once supporting price is no longer sustainable.

    There will come a point where the people will demand the release of land from the land owners and compel government to do this in order to continue urbanization.

    It is important during this process to erode the notion of private property rights and privacy in general.

    The target shall be a nation state where there is an equality in standard and mode of living across the country managed by a single omnipresent government.

    And so to the ‘spinning’ for tommorrows game of ‘Dupe the masses’ from parliament.

    I offer up a simplified ‘conspiracy theory’ [Smiley face]

    If there are 10 prominent homosexuals and they are all promoting ‘their’ so called overall agenda for gay marriage (poor me, poor us, poor suffering [shite]) – don’t they all fold into one by following the lead of their ‘most prominent homosexual’ Master?

    But let’s assume that the least prominent 5 of them are quite ‘ignorant’ of what has been ‘really going on’ in Mandlebums world – where mandlebum has been committing all manner of criminal acts – unbeknown to the lesser thick homos … what are the lesser 5 going to do – because they are so ignorant – but fall into line with the mandlebum?

    There are criminal christians who hide behind their religion – ditto muslims and j*ews. When even the homosexuals turn a ‘blind eye’ to their most prominent Lordy Homosexuals criminal activities – don’t they just prove their fucking hypocrisy?

    Conor Burns is a disgusting piece of duplicitous filth – who DOES NOT REPRESENT HIS CONSTITUENTS.

    David Cameron in 2006 : UKIP ‘Fruitcakes And Loonies’

    http://www.lbc.co.uk/david-cameron-ukip-fruitcakes-and-loonies-63456

    This is the moment that David Cameron told Nick Ferrari that UKIP was full of “fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists”.

    Back in 2006, the then Conservative Party leader made the controversial comments to LBC 97.3′s Nick Ferrari, dismissing members of the anti-Europe party.

    A spokesman for Number 10 told LBC 97.3 nothing has been retracted and that the Prime Minister never called every single member of UKIP a racist.

“When discussion veers to subjects that Mr Crosby thinks of concern only to the political and journalistic classes, he treats the offender as a pub bore with a tart request to “pass the beer nuts, mate”.”
