Gordon’s Alive!

Perfectly timed as Ed goes for MPs with second jobs, the Prime Mentalist will speak in the House this evening for just the third time in the last year:

ADJOURNMENT DEBATE

Until 7.30pm or for half an hour (whichever is later) (Standing Order No. 9(7))

Dalgety Bay radiation: Mr Gordon Brown

Always an occasion…

    His nurse needs to keep a close eye on him I’d say. Seen it lots of times, chap goes off the rails then months of ‘therapy’ and then as soon as he’s back at the day job he gets the ‘old gentleman’ out and starts scaring the locals. Not a pretty sight. Much better for everyone just to lock him up and let him play with himself out of sight.

    Tsk tsk, the message clearly hasn’t got through to Gordo’s cerebral cortex.

    Dalgety Bay and any, alleged, residual radiation is a matter for the Scottish Parliament not Westminster.

    Great. Because of a small minority of Muslims, champagne for Premier League’s MOTM (Man Of The Match) is being phased out. How absurd is that?

  12. 12

    Gordon radiates.

    He radiates inactivity, bad choices, errors of judgement, poor ethics, lack of public service, greed for personal enrichment, expenses for doing nothing, lack of remorse for fucking the UK more up than the next 100 worst offenders all put together.

    And so much more.

    He should be lowered into Sizewell B and sealed in.

    Moussa Koussa's pet meerkat says:

    Well done Ed. Now for some reform for Tory donors, stop the second and third jobs, put a halt to voting with vested interests and investigations for donors making massive profits from this government.

    The Bruins. says:

    SNP will gain from Brown’s unwillingness to represent his constituents properly. Quite right too.

  23. 23
    Careers Advisers says:

    Ed doesn’t value unpaid work, so he wants to ban it. No more are MPs to sit on boards of schools or local charities, or to advise outside bodies. Their energies are to be expended solely on representing their constituents.

    Bloop says:

    How about a law that states all shareholders of any company donating to the Tory party must agree before any donation is made?
    Nobody is given any choice about that.
    Tories bleating about funding reminds us of pot and kettle, especially when their main donor is a tax exile cheating the country out of billions and their other donors are the very hedge fund casino bankers who caused the financial crisis in the first place.

    I do hope so.

    I hope the SNP achieves its aims ASAP and the oleaginous Alex Almond is shown to be the empty suit he is.

    Plus, we’ll be rid of the spongers north of the border and a whole raft of Labour MPs.

    What possible reason is there not to vote for Scottish independence?

    A brave decision from Milliband and I think it is the right move.

    I can hardly believe the idiotic words of Grant Twatts however…. I would strongly suggest the Tories shut the man up though because he is an embarrassment!

    It will of course dramatically alter the way Labour are funded, and it may have hefty implications for the party funding but I still think it is the right move.

    I would however just like to repeat that I still think the best way for our political parties to be funded is that it should be state funding. By all the criticism heaped at each side and the unseemly mud-slinging, one thing is apparent, it is the people who put the money in the party coffers who are listened to and they get to dictate policy. I for one would be willing to put my hand in my pocket if it means that the money in the coffers is mine and therefore it is my voice that is listened to.

    Ok the Tories….. the ball is now in your court….. will you be kissing goodbye to your rich donors now?????

    Luckily, there was no problem at all with Dalgety Bay between 1997-2010.

    It was miraculously, only when the heartless, toxic and thoroughly nasty coalition were elected, that McRuin decided his number one priority ( after making millions for his ‘charidee’ ) was the health and safety of his poor wee constituents.
    Who he decided, he should fight tirelessly for, well three times a year anyway, because they were risking their lives, walking their dogs on the horribly polluted sands.

    Many years ago I HAD TO BE A MEMBER of a trade union (or no job) when I went to the meeting rooms to pay the subs every two week, the only ones there were the militants, spouting off, we used to be in and out like whippets. And it was a brave man who elected not to pay the political levy, my bet it would be the same today, for anyone opting out of the levy.

    C.O.Jones says:

    I do believe that this radiation thing was known about in the 1990’s or earlier. Why did he not do something about it during his tenure?

    The radiation comes from aircraft instrumentation and Gordon Brown comes from a genetic mutation that gets someone else to sort out the problems that were of no interest to him on his shift.

    No more boom and bust.

    One Term Tories says:

    It’s interesting that David Cameron failed to beat Gordon Brown during the last general election. Maybe that’s why the comments on this thread are so bitchy.

    When he was voted out of office the economy was growing at 1.7%.

    Under George Osborne it is growing at less than a quarter of that amount.

    The inconvenient truth is that Labour ran the economy better than the Conservatives.

    Under Labour there were ten consecutive years of growth.

    Under the Conservatives there have been three returns into recession due to the implementation of George Osborne’s failed economic policies.

    George Osborne has banged his head against a brick wall so many times he must be suffering from brain damage by now.

    They’re the ones who’ve seen their local community building turned into a mosque, or the corner shop become a Polish deli.

    We are not there just yet, and one would prefer for the military to step in ahead of certain sections of the citizenry.

    To be fair, Labour have denied Muzzie candidates selection for election in their seats on a number of occasions. Rochester and Rotherham are two notable examples.

    If the Muzzies are being denied the right to stand, and hence to vote for candidates they would like then it is their democratic responsibility to stand up to this.

    If they are denied their right to the ballot by the mainstream parties they should set up their own.

    If that doesn’t work then they will have no other choice but to resort to other means.

    Quite right.

    But look into the backround of their chief protagonist – Malcolm Rifkind.

    This Isr*ael Firster and Zi*onist is all for the West sending arms and fodder to this embattled region.

    Note what the young black international lawyer said, in that Russia and Iran are sending arms to the legitimate Syrian secular govt which is within the law. The west are backing the rebels which is tantamount to regime change or overthrow of the legitimate govt which is against international and UN law. Then did you note how Rifkind turned on him?

    Remember what the Russians did in the 1930’s when Stalin purged the Bolsheviks (who were mainly J*ewish) from Russia. Where did the emigres who fled Russia, Eastern Europe and Germany go to – The UK and NYC.

  216. 216
    Don Key'ote says:

    Rifkind is a protagonist for free market (anarchists/libertarian) liberal democracy where the rights of the individual and businesses to make profits is paramount above all else. He still sees Russia as predominantly socialist and sees Russia as the enemy of the Zi*onist neocons.
    As the neocon think-tank The A Project for a New American Century proclaimed… The road to Tehran is through Damascus.

    Russia were hoodwinked over Libya. Putin and China certainly won’t let this happen again in Syria. Because if Syria falls then Iran is next and Iran is central to Chinese and Russian interests. It is in their backyard.

    Yes, BW.

    You recognise that my comment is quite deliberately provocative, hopefully without descending into outright savagery. The tongue-in-cheek reference to Sizewell B is obviously to draw attention to Brown’s faux concern for his constituents, whose plight he ignored until he needed to use it as self-justification.

    He can take his moral compass, inherited from his pastor father, and stuff it just as far up his arse as he possibly can, for all it is worth in terms of ethics. (Again they would not publish this, would they?)

    Your comment also serves well to illustrate the essential need for this blog. Some things have to be said with more force than the PC censorship brigade will tolerate.

    Is it not ironic that the chief defender of commenting freedom in the UK is in fact the First Amendment to the United States Constitution? Is it not just as ironic that the person who has brought this freedom to the UK is actually an Irish citizen?

    Yet some come on here to whinge about him when they would not even get an outlet for their pathetic rantings anywhere else.

    So a huge fuck off to the PC brigade, the fawning media at large (with specific exceptions), the BBC, the politicians (again with specific exceptions), the lawyers and judiciary and last but not least, the petty carpers who attempt (and fail) to despoil these very pages.

    The Kim Jong Un of Labour. Looks like a Mong and only has the job because of who his dad was and his older brother got shafted to make way for a puppet of the powers that got him in.

    Presumably Owen Jones on his bike and wearing his traditional check shirt will get the contract to deliver Royal Mails share prospectus.

    London Metro Beobachter says:

    According to the Metro London this morning Millitwat has slayed the unions and went a step further and states the limit but…. as a result of a Tory MP caught fiddling. (2nd paragraph in)

    No mention of the fact that Brown has not turned up at all in this paper. Anyone fiddling or not doing the job should be jumped on but the media just constantly point this as a Tory problem when its the union and Labours problem. With propogander like that the Tories so stand a chance even though all indicators prove they wer right.

    The Terrace Outside says:

    Ed Miliband walks into a bar in the House of Commons. He sees a beautiful, vaguely familiar woman sitting on a bar stool alone.

    He walks up to her and says, “Hi there, how’s it going tonight?”

    She turns to him, looks him straight in the eyes and says, “I’ll screw anybody at any time, anywhere — your place or my place, it doesn’t matter to me.”

    Ed Miliband recoils in horror and says, “Oh shit, you’ve been sent by Len McCluskey as a replacement for Tom Watson”

    Don’t be unkind. He needs a care assistant
    With his strange behaviour so persistent
    Besides, with the ones the N H S takes on
    Although he’s here now, pretty soon he’d be gone

    Bollocks Broadcasting Corporation says:

    Our viewers have told us that they are not bothered about watching live test cricket on the BBC. They would much rather their money was spent on huge payoffs for departing executives.

    Charlatans says:

    One Term Tories comment just shows how utterly shallow and totally thick Labour trolls are. They really believe they left a Golden legacy. God help us if they ever get anywhere near the reigns of power again.
