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…

      BahHumbug....he started it. says:

      either is 10 billion.
      infinite or nowt.
      ….given 1 is already infinite, there is nowt to do.
      nowt is priceless.

      the end of z is now.
      waer half ankle boots, get support
      service level agreement is hello, how can i help.
      and thendo…the way virgintravel does at the global zoo that is Tesco.
      so the question is 2V or not 2V that is the question.
      the question is 2V
      2V is not the question.
      the conundrum is mathematical.
      spiritually change colour become a ghost and escape the contradictions.
      change colour to holy man.
      change colour slowly, quality innit.
      and float like an ash above the Lords.
      to be grounded turn the ash to dust and sit on top . leaking a bit of authentic poison free emotion and watch the ex.cream from the top. the ash is really a monkey perched high….not scared but accepting of.
      that is just.as.it.is…so fear makes the money go around. be still…..shed pounds…money is ……….bahHumbug
      shed pounds.
      train to lose.

    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.

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

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

    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.

    Fungible Irascibility says:

    Only 9 comments because a few of us old-time SpAd lads had a word and Prism shut the comments down.

    Mind how you go.

    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’?!

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”

Rob Wilson says:

Without Predujice


What time will dinner be ready this evening?
