Friends Reunited
Labour SpAd Reunion Tonight

If you are up Islington way this evening why not pop into Charlie Falconer’s £3 million home, where he is hosting a Labour “former Special Advisor’s reunion”.  Labour sources say that a mooted plan from party General Secretary Iain McNicol to have the old guard SpAds mentor current party flacks was shelved as Blairite SpAds are not too keen on taking the time out from money making to help their Milibandite successors. The fundraiser will see the former spinners mingle and share precious memories of wars and wins with Labour’s “Thousand Club” donors.

Guido would pay a £1,000 not to spend an evening with that lot…

    John Tandy says:

    They would have to pay me…..

    Portfolio says:

    My wife said I can not go as she has seen a pair of Shoes she likes and a Handbag, Dress Knickers and Bra… mind you, sounds like the conversation at the Thousand Doner Club.

    Ann Onnymous says:

    I would love to be there with an AK47, not to use it but just to see the terror on their pasty arrogant faces

  5. 5
    The Public says:

    More corruption. Will nobody rid us of the useless trash which call themselves our political elite?

  6. 6
    The all new labour party. Same old tripe. says:

    They are self serving scum who have ruined this country.

    Miliblunder will never be able to move the Labour Party on when tossers like Bliar, Mandelson & chums are calling the shots. I can’t make up my mind which is worse for the country. Having the country ruined by Bliar’s self serving chums or run by the Unions? Labour & their sycophants are scum and should do us all a favour and move abroad.

    Mark Wouters says:

    The worlds economic system has been brought down by JOHN KEITH ROOME, also this state of affairs will continue for evermore,there will BE NO CHANGE the worlds western economies( they are in a debt ridden catch22) ,we will be controlled by the Arab and asia nations as they are oil and cash rich,the Muslims will win the war on terror and the usa and britain will pay the ultimate price ,of economic death.debt led .
    JFK wanted to stop the debt driven policies of the noecons but he paid the ulimate price,the secret neocons CIA ,murdered JFK.
    Piling debt on to people like myself will do the government of usa and uk no good in will only lead to more hardship for the upper and middle classes,
    for a very considerable lenght of time,and will not abate.

    A room full of freeloaders helping the Noble Lord? drink to better times when they can once announce to the gullible voters the latest tractor production and the record output by Stakhanovite workers.The same old dross by a bunch of crooks
    Off with their heads up the revolution man the barricades and so on.

    Herman Van Aerial Disease says:

    Imagine that, a house full of people with the combined IQ equivalent to an amoeba and the ethics of a whore mongering pimp who just sold their entire family to cannibals.

    Is this another labour group plotting against Rangers Football Club and any other organisation that is pro-‘The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland’?!

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
