          Indeed.

          • Why the report is delayed says:

            The enquiry was presented with clear evidence that Blair/Campbell misled Parliament when they used the phrase ‘beyond doubt’ when describing the strength of the intelligence that Iraq possessed WMD. They could not justify this statement. They lied.

          Thats not all he is lying to the UK public about.

          Nick Clegg gave the game away yesterday on the LibLabCon real EU policy… to the Polish Foreign Minister, confirming the UK would never leave !!

          On BBC Newsnight 29th May 2013, Gavin Esler was speaking to the Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski about the EU and the UK.

          Radek replied:-

          ”I was speaking with your deputy prime minister Nick Clegg earlier today and he told me it was extremely unlikely that Britain would ever vote to leave the EU…”

          Cue embarrassing pause from the news night interviewer as this wasn’t the story he wanted to tell, and quickly onto the next question…

          You can just imagine what that idiot caMoron says behind closed doors to Merkel and other EU leaders….

          It shows the utter contempt the LibLabCon have for the public and their real agenda to stay in the EU, whatever the cost.

          They will never give us a referendum, it will always be fixed, they will never leave the EU.

          Enough is enough.

      There is only person that will save the Tories at the next election. Ed Milliband. The Unions will ensure that Labour has Ed Milliband as the prospective Prime Minister. Foot, Kinnock and Brown will be forgotten. The only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.

    it just shows how daft the electorate really is

      Casual Observer says:

      The UK public are well renowned for quirkiness like this.

      The pollsters may have selected from those who consider a dog to represent the best of British talent. But that doesn’t explain why Brown scored so highly. With a total of 20 people interviewed it may have been possible to find 10 who may think Gordon has any sense, let alone that of purpose.

      Gordon certainly ‘Tries’.

      The Poll should reveal the number of non-responses, either by outright hangup, or abuse + hangup, they got.

      • 41
        Tay King-dePisse says:

        You’d figure that, if people are posed with a question like, “On the following qualities, choose between Ed Miliband and Gordon Brown…”, their overwhelming answer would be “Must I?”

      Joe Public. says:

      I find it totally unbelievable that anyone can be so far behind in the polls compared to Gordon Brown. Did they only poll Brown’s stupid constituents and family?
      Brown was an unmitigated disaster, and Millipede is just that, a somewhat smart lad lacking in maturity and gravitas, and with no real ideas.
      If this poll result is truly professional, then either the loony left want Brown to be resurrected; or for Millibandwagon to wake up – or god help us, both of these things.

      One rule for us another for.... says:

      Exactly, I remember his office put out a statement in answer to the queries coming in as to Gordons absence from Parliament. It read that Gordon was ‘spending time , writing his book, watching the World Cup, talking walks in the Country and spending time with his family’. This all on the public purse of course. Now just imagine you tried that at your workplace. ‘Sorry I wont be coming in this week as Im watching the footie’ Yeah right !

          • Enough is enough says:

            Vote Labour – stay in the EU

          • Enough is enough says:

            Actually by Ed Milliband winning, the UK is likley to reach a crisis point slightly sooner, than if the conservatives win. There is not much in it becasue their policies are almost identical, but labour just edge it by a couple of years.

            This crisis, will present an ideal opportunity for UKIP to present an even stronger “out of the EU now” argument and call for a referendum that would argubaly be supported 100% by the conservatives, because by then, they would realise their only chance of ever getting back in power for the next 15 years would to take up a genuine Eurosceptic and “out” position.

            So you see, Labour winning holds no fear for UKIP supporters.
            It actually achives the desired result of leaving the EU, in a quiker timescale than if the conservatives win (which they won’t).

            Therefore, you might as well vote UKIP, because if enough people do… then we can avoid the predictable labour crisis before we do actually manage to leave the EU.

          • Kinnochio says:

            Ah, the Scargill option. Vote Tory because they’ll put the country into crisis and soon the people will vote for pure communism in response.

            That worked well, didn’t it.

          • Anonymous says:

            What happened in 2010? When the Tories couldn’t get a majority against the worst Labour PM in history? UKIP weren’t even on the radar then, the Tories will NEVER form a government again, they are to toxic.

    I think the stats for Gordon look a little high. That survey must have been done at the very start of the revolution when King Blair was deposed.

    But a survey taken during the height of The Terror would be less flattering to the fat, monocular, furious, slack jawed nonce.

    Comparing Ed to Gordon is like asking would you rather have Ebola or Rabies?

From day one when he taxed pensions it was obvious to anyone who could add one and one and get two that he was robbing future pensioners of 25% of their eventual pension, yet noone seemed to see it.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
