      NHS, local-councils, Quangos, Network-Rail, diversity-and-equality ass-wipes. The public-sector is the biggest fraud going and it does not serve the interest of the English tax-payer.*

    Dan Hodges says:

    This is Owen Jones’s entry for the most idiotic “tweet” of the year to date.

    “Owen Jones ‏@OwenJones84 12m
    If Labour wasn’t funded by millions of working people, it would be by bankers, hedge fund managers and legal loan sharks – like the Tories”

    Owen Jones is a candidate for Broadmoor,if ever there was one.

    Whatever doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger.

    Why does Eric Pickles think he can make laws without any debate or the representations being considered?

    A legally explicit law with regard filming has been overturned by him using twitter to bully a council.

    Has he forgotten that the councillors say very little in meetings, and simply just vote after a few questions. The main part is the representations and possibly site visits neither of which, even he admits, should be filmed.

      Would be nice though to put a face to the fuckers who propose and then vote for any lunatic PC shite in your local area.

        Anonymous says:

        Their pictures are in the local papers regularly. Their pictures are on the wall just inside the town hall. Their names and addresses, and pictures are on the web sites.

        The minutes are on the website.

        You have the option to vote out any you suspect, regularly. Most of the “PC *****” is done by the non-elected side of the council who you have no visual ability to watch over. The only visibility is the FOI but that is considered something to hide behind. FOI should be considered a failure of the council as they are under a duty to routinely publish their documents and actions.

        Obviously certain tasks like child welfare are not handled in public in the same way as a new shopping centre.

        Councils define their roles using documents like this one:


        It is all very public. I just want to protect those that try to get the councils to do the right thing, against the bullying by activist groups, and now Ministers and MPs.

        There should be no opportunity for bullying by either side.

    Labour, A Wholly Owned Subsidiary of the Unite Union says:

    Is there anything more hilarious than the spectacle of Ed Miliband on the news saying he’s disgusted by the Falkirk scandal and that he’s outraged by Unite. It’s fake posturing of the worst kind, aided and abetted by the bbc who are running with the “Labour at war with Unite” line as dictated by Labour HQ. You have to give credit to Cameron, his performance on Wednesday clearly hit home and has Labour terrified, hence their immediate panic fuelled damage limitation exercise to portray themselves as being at odds with Len McCluskey and gang. No one with any sense is buying it for a second. The most disgraceful ones in this episode are the bbc who are obediently spinning Labour’s fiction for them.

      albacore says:

      Yup, don’t look over here, look over there
      And whatever you do, please don’t compare
      The three tentacles of the LibLabCon
      Or you might find they’re all having you on
      Like with immigration and the E U
      They ain’t arf makig a fool out of you

    Finding an ordinary width bed in an NHS hospital is becoming increasingly difficult.

    But if you’re over 6 feet tall, your feet have to dangle over the end.

    Fatties win again.

      Casual Observer says:

      The obese bastards that merely lack any self-control are consuming an ever increasing proportion of NHS resources, with their grossly overloaded hip and knee joints etc. Doctors should just tell them to fuck off and come back if and when they’ve got back to a normal healthy weight. Stop stuffing your faces with junk food you stupid cnuts.

        Chavs for Benefits says:

        If you want us to buy better food you need to give us more benefits. Most of what we get now goes on fags booze and betting shops.

    Fabians are evil says:

    Labour and the revolting sweating mass of filth that vote for them are to blame for the current economic/social problems of the UK. They should all hang their heads in shame for imposing that crazy mad arsed jock cretin Gordon Brown on us.

          It’s the socialist way. A glass of champagne goes own very well after pretending to help the poor people and plundering the public purse for personal gain.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
