More “Impeccable Advice”
Coulson Says Bring Back Fox, Ignore Heywood

Andy Coulson offers more words of wisdom for Dave in GQ this morning. Stage eight of his masterplan calls for Liam Fox to be brought back in from the cold:

“Unlike the rarely effective but always politically flawed Nigel Farage, when it comes to immigration he should deal in fact and not the stoking of irrational fears. William Hague is the man to take on and beat Farage and persuade those unloved Tories feeling the pull of UKIP to stand firm. He should be tasked with devising and leading the strategy against the party and enlist the currently under-employed Liam Fox to help.”

There are some choice words for “Sir Jeremy Who-wood” too:

“It’s time for the prime minister to wean himself off the company of the big brains in the civil service and leave himself more room to operate politically. The reforms are well underway. Progress should be carefully monitored but the hard yards in the company of Cabinet Secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood et al for David are already nearing their end – at least until after the election. The prime minister should spend more time with the people who might actually help win in 2015 rather than senior civil servants who have revelled in the power and professional satisfaction the coalition has brought them. I suspect Sir Jeremy and co would rather enjoy five more years of the same.”

He goes on to call Clegg “a bit of a minger”. As Boris said, “impeccable” advice…

        So Coulson believes that utilising the same William Hague who turned native at the FCO on day one and who now serves the coalition as an ardent Europhile constantly arguing for us to remain inside the EU, should be utilised to take on UKIP does he? The same William Hague who has turned out to be the most dissapointing Minister in the current coalition. Does he mean that William Hague?

        I think I have just discovered what Coulson’s defence against the criminal charges that he faces will be. He will claim insanity and this strategy will be offered as proof.

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

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

        Radek said:-

        ”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 proper referendum, it will always be fixed, the government will ignore any “wrong” referendum results, they will never leave the EU.

        Enough is enough.

          I keep telling you lot on this blog you will never get a vote to leave the EU and even if by some miracle you did get a vote, any vote to leave would be ignored and a another vote would take place and so on until we agreed to stay in.

          I don’t know why people on this blog find it so hard to work out. In 18 years of previous Tory government we never got a vote and for all those who think UKIP is the answer. UKIP is full of scum Tories who happily went along with the consensus for decades, NOW all of a sudden we’re supposed to believe that they have had an epiphany? Really?

          We are stuck with the EU, so long as we’re stuck with the same political elite. You need to get rid of them first. To do that you need to smash the MSM, the BBC and the Guardian that pump their brainwashing shite into our houses.

          Just look at this blog. Guido was once a rebel an independent voice, now he’s a Murdoch mouthpiece spouting the same shit as the rest of the MSM.

        Amazing you’d think Coulson would be spending more time with his defense team? Still if this is the sort of advice he was giving Cameron does explain a lot. Sad but the truth is vote UKIP to break the current political elite. From the fire fight that will take place after Dave’s defeat will be the start of the new politics for this country. Dave won’t do it. As for the spectre of Millibean forget him with no overall party winning in 2015 the Tories will know what to do with Dave and then move to the right and to getting out of the EU this will bury Labour for a generation at least.

      yes you may well says:

      I see the BBC has decided to take up the propaganda call against pensioners benefits, by highlighting the lack of capping/means testing on benefits that have been bought and paid for over half a century or more. Seemingly pensioners are sitting on vast fortunes , with assets on average in excess of £1.4 million I think most pensioners would have great difficulty in identifying with this figure. With this level of funds why would anyone need support through the benefit system?.
      In real life the truth is quite different , the majority of normal people need support to retain a level of mobility to stay in a social society ,they need extra support to make their homes warm in the colder months, why do we discard the older generation, they are the very people who made this country what it is today.
      The word is that society could use all this money “wasted” on pensioners to aid young people to get into work, a truly laudable thought, but why do we have a welfare system, is it to help the future or is it there to support the people who have supported it in the hope that it would support them in later life, this seems to be ebbing away. If this is what society wants why not have a maximum age limit at which people would be humanly done away with therefore removing any further cost.
      Pensioners are already under severe attack with the introduction of delayed pension provision, women whose pension has been “equalised” will lose a least £40,000 delaying pension entitlement to age 66 rather than 60, this is very fair yes , when people enter the work place they are agreeing to a “contract” that if they work for a set number of years and pay into a government insurance scheme they will receive a set amount of benefits, this is now not the case the government of the day can remove your rights at a stroke undermining any planned retirement plan you may have made.

      The air time this issue will be given is set to increase, the government will continue to feed “facts” into the media which will show that we are directing funding to the wrong end of society, the old, we need to fund the young they are the future.
      Beware being young you will be drawn into the same myth and will pay for it when you too get into you old age.
      Pensioners need to rally together and let these people i.e. politicians know that we wont stand for it.

      Dave is not a Conservative and it’s clear to all that the current leadership of the Conservative Party is at best tolerant of its own members and in most cases actually hates them! Vote UKIP and start the change, be under no illusion Farage is not the end game that will only start to be visible after the defeat of Dave. Labour is finished and will have no credible policies on anything. Even if Labour manages to link up in a coalition with the LibDems in 2015 this won’t wash for long as it will simply make an outright win for a right wing Conservative Party that is looking to move us out the the nightmare of the EU that much easier over 2016 -18.

        The woman on the end who said that people in the UK care more about this issue than people dying in Afr!ca spoke the most truth, and indirectly supported Nigel as well.

        So from this we can see a consensus on the sofa, which does not sit well with the political position of the broadcaster.

    Why is scum like Mark Bridger, who murdered a 5 year old child, treated with decency in terms of getting a prison sentence? I don’t believe in the death penalty either. People like him should be made to suffer. I’d have the likes of him, Rose West, Ian Brady, Vanessa George, Ian Huntley, Peter Sutcliffe and all p*edophiles and child killers skinned alive and thrown into a snakepit.

          Casual Observer says:

          There is no extremism in UKIP, that only exists in the left biased media and some of the minority communities, as evidenced in Woolwich last week.

          Trend is indicating that public support is building steadily behind UKIP.

          Not one Tory MP has yet defected, but some may. Defection is a hot potato though as it indicates dis-loyalty. The only ones who may are those whose constituents and local party would support them in such a move.

          This will follow the shift in sentiment of the donors (major and minor), poll results and general sentiment, not to mention the views of UK business.

          UKIP appear to have refocused their efforts now on the European elections and the stubborn problem of Labour. One suspects that they are waiting for the Conservative party to make their next move with respect Cameron before further engagement, so are focusing on more important issues.

          The European elections are somewhat important to the country at this point in time, which the electorate have broadly figured out.

          The infighting in the Conservative party, as well as within the LibLabCon bloc generally is helping to hamper their own campaigns.

          Running non-English / local candidates, denying referendums etc. and demonstrating a certain degree of political un-professionalism on the part of LibLabCon has already gifted much of the European vote to UKIP, which is the best outcome for the country.

          Westminster style party conflicts seriously damage the UKs position in the European Parliament. Such representation makes the UK very easy to compromise in Europe on the important issues which actually do affect our daily lives.

          What those in Westminster desperately do not want people to figure out is that the expensive pantomime they put on there is a complete hologram from the perspective of decision making in the UK.

          Many folk have, which is the real reason why UKIP support is growing.

          A referendum is important. But if the UK is to remain in the EU system then it is important that the UK has political leadership which the people can have a sense of trust will represent their views.

          LibLabCon have comprehensively broken that covenant of trust with the electorate and are not fit for the purpose of representing the UK in Europe.
