      Sometimes I wonder how these people get to the position the hold says:

      The word “illegal”, so and MP thinks laws she helps to make are stupid and offensive, we can be jailed or fined if the people of the country break them, but it’s ok to have people sneak into the country and live here without doing the decent thing and let people know your here, throw them out when they catch these illegals, it’s the people of the country that pay, we have MPs to grab what they can we don’t need anymore people doing it.

            He did say put the van on the boat and send that away.

            I read this as wanting the ‘offensive’ van sent away with the ‘offensive’ Diane.

            The van is not an illegal immigrant either, unless it has been smuggled in somehow. Highly likely not from Jamaica as I do not think they manufacture vans there.

            Given most van production jobs in the UK have been transferred to Turkey it is good to draw attention to the van.

            Agree that turning tide against blacks is not a good trend that appears to be developing. Eastern Europeans should be the primary target at present.

            But that would be unacceptable to many in Government at present, for some very fundamental reasons. So they are looking to throw the more easily identified under the van, so to speak.

          • As always, PoI2, your logical interpretation is excellent.

            I travel at least once a year to Africa, normally to the west and have close ties there. There is therefore no way my remarks are prejudiced against those with black skins. However, there are those who do have black skins and are exceptionally dense, to the point of offence. I am not going to hold back my criticism of them on the off-chance that one may feel I am racially offending. Hence my freedom of speech dig at this miserable soul with a name that could be connected with cocaine and LSD, were I to interpret him in like manner.

            Back to Abbott, she sounds in the tweet (remember where we started, folks?) as if she might be condoning illegal behaviour. Ambiguous. Deliberate? This will not have been the first time for her.

          Point of Information 2 says:

          It is stupid and offensive, because that is Diane: She is very stupid and offensive.

          The van is a bit off as people are not used to seeing direct state action like this without upfront public consultation. It is also a shock as debate was very much closed down on this issue.

          That was offensive action against the UK people by the previous UK Labour government.

          The stupid aspect of this current policy is that the borders are still offensively wide open. In particular to economic migrants from Europe.

          Diane most certainly does not speak for many in this country, and from her general statements made over time has marked herself out as not being in tune with British sentiment, and is at best a borderline racist herself.

          If she doesn’t like it here, she should go, or just shut up and do something about her ‘Health’ issues.

      For comparison, check out the black sheep campaign that was run in Switzerland a few years back. Again, connected with illegal immigration, but more a PR fail than sign of racism.

      The metaphor was good, but the choice of color poor as it made a very easy target for the left:

        Even if he loses, he’s already on record for saying there are “no circumstances” under which he’ll take Britain out of the EU.

        Even if we vote to leave, Camoron won’t let us. He’s said so.

        Now, consider Miliband becoming PM. Miliband, a retard who’d be out of his depth in a carpark puddle, will be an unpopular PM from day one. His unpopularity will grow day by day, like a festering tumour. By 2017 there would be no way he’d back-out of a referendum. And, because he couldn’t organize a piss-up in a brewery, he’ll lose the referendum, badly.

        Vote Camoron, get the continuing tyranny of EU membership (29 million Romanian pickpockets are coming to a benefit office near you, soon, thanks to Camoron).

      You Know It Makes Sense says:

      No,it’ll play straight into a UKIP landslide scenario!
      Read it:

      “Dear Mr McCluskey

      I read with interest the recent poll of Unite’s members by Lord Ashcroft, who found that 12% of your membership would individually choose to join the Labour Party (if contributions to the political fund were no longer attributed automatically).

      In the same survey we noticed that 12% also happens to be the percentage of Unite members who would vote UKIP.

      Given that there is such significant support for UKIP within the union we expect that (in the interests of transparency, equality and the democratic process in general) Unite will be adding UKIP to the list of political parties that your members are invited to donate to via the political fund.

      In the spirit of comradeship we write to confirm our consent for you to add UKIP to the list of mainstream parties to which Unite members can direct their political donations via the political fund.

      We look forward to such parity, and to the deepening friendship between UKIP and the labour movement that it will foster.

      In contrast to the Labour Party, UKIP is already:

      “a party that offers real hope, that stands up for the poor and vulnerable, that puts growth at the heart of its agenda, that confronts privilege… [and will give the electorate] a real and vivid choice as to the future of our country, not one that leaves the electorate indifferent.”

      Unfortunately, unless you knowingly become a full member of UKIP in your own right, we can’t offer you any influence over our choice of candidates but at least you’ll know that UKIP will actually protect the wages and livelihoods of the working class of the United Kingdom, rather than swamping the labour market with immigrants prepared to work for less than the minimum wage.

      Yours sincerely

      Paul Nuttall MEP

      UKIP Deputy Leader”.

      If they are seeking Unite sponsorship then this is not necessarily a bad thing.

      It would help dispel once and for all the myth that UKIP is a racist party, and undermine Labour’s funding.

      That they are making the move sounds positive on Europe.

      Could this be because they are not counting on European funding continuing for much longer ? Is the pace of change over there exceeding that of the politics ?

        Here is the first hard evidence of what we all knew to be the case but were unable to state without sounding shrill and insufficiently informed.

        It is difficult to conceive of a more treacherous act than this. It was a conspiracy, it was perpetrated by a large number of people and it was done without any consideration of the unintended consequences which might ensue.

        In former times, the individuals involved would surely have been arrested, tried and, if found guilty, been suspended from a rope for a decent interval.

        Now we just give them titles, pensions and the freedom to earn even more money from their treason. This, in turn, simply encourages more to follow. And they perpetrate their harm oblivious to the suffering endured by the peoples of these lands.

        Be under no illusion, William Joyce aka Lord Haw-Haw, who was hanged at Wandsworth Prison in 1946, arguably caused less damage to our nation than Anthony Charles Lynton Blair and his entire vanguard of unadulterated treachery. I hope, even as this news comes out, that they feel truly uncomfortable about their necks as a foretaste of what they so justly deserve.

        You are making a rather elementary mistake of considering the eye as if it were a part of our development all by itself, disconnected from all the other apparatus required to eventually produce an impression in our minds of an appearance. It results from an over-allowance upon the empirical approach, ironically so in view of your semi-defence of creationism. Also the 500 years point, in your later post, is very misleading. See Lederberg.

            It’s not 50 million years. There fixed it for you. Evolution does not happen in isolation. It is neither insular nor linear. It is not always species specific, but can be. It is definitely not intelligent but is almost certainly selfish.

            They eye is proof, if proof is needed that there is no intelligent design, and if their is, the designer is both incompetent and a fecking imbicile. Put the blind spot – where the optic nerve connects to the back of the eyeball, right in the centre? So the brain has to piece together 20 cm scans to create a full picture? Pathetic excuse for design.

          • OK. Apologise if I misconstrued your intention. But at the risk of wearying you further, I think to characterise Darwinism simply as hit and miss is to misplace much of its subtlety. There is not space to develop that here.

            There are those who would paint Tom Nagel’s cosmic predisposition as hard-core end-driven teleology. That opens up one range of possibilities. Clearly creationism requires a requirement for the presence of a conscious agent which is a step further than anywhere in this range but is not necessary to explain it in itself.

            I don’t think your point about 50 million years being insufficient cashes out but, again, it needs time to develop appropriately.

            My feeling was implied in my last post. It seems you want to believe in something without having adequate grounds to do so. Respectfully, I put it to you: are you a creationist or not?

            In all honesty, a lot of this round-and-round nonsense about evolution yea/nay is put out by people who “have a dog in the fight.”

            Because there are still details we need to fill in as to how evolution that has taken place did so, and because we cannot in the limited lifespans of under a century do anything more than log genetic differences and theorise how they might play into development of eventual different species, a certain segment of the population, who would love to believe that it all took place six thousand years ago in less than a week, with a Deity who delights in confounding us with plenty of evidence to the contrary, thunders, “A HA! That’s why it’s the ‘Theory’ of evolution, and not the ‘Law’!”, thus misusing the term “theory” to mean “conjecture,” instead of what it DOES mean, “the most parsimonious explanation of all available data.”

            But there are too many scientific types for whom “I really couldn’t tell you” is an embarrassment to admit– though it shouldn’t be, as, after all, that’s what science IS, FFS, trying to figure out what it is you DO know and what it is you don’t, and trying to figure out how to remedy the latter situation. (Look at the climate community, for an egregious example.) And if, as Josh Billings said, “it’s what you know that ain’t so which gets you into trouble,” you’ve always got to admit that new evidence could come along that would render everything you know useless at worst, and serve as a how-not-to at best. But when you vie for grant money, you can’t look as if you have a thumb up your bum by saying “D-u-h, I don’t know, that’s why I wanted the grant, to find out!”

            So you have two sides, each well too wedded to their points of view at the extremes, while in the middle you have religiosos who say “Who really knows how God did creation?” and scientists saying “Maybe there IS a First Mover with a Grand Design, but to just do the raw science involved, ‘nous n’avons pas besoin de cette hypothese’.”

            Me? I just say, we’re here now, let’s enjoy the ride. Pardon my incuriosity on the subject.

    So, from the poor, the sick, the disabled and unemployed, the propaganda will move to the elderly of generation X to the squeezed middle to anyone who looks a bit foreign or dodgy or who is not keeping their head down quite far enough.

    It is basically splashing a Sun or Mail headline on a van and inciting drivers and pedestrians to a two-minute hate, much as Iain Duncan Smith uses lies to incite people to tip disabled people out of wheelchairs.

    It is the politics of fear and hate and division and lies.

          Only a Labour troll uses a term like LibLabCon. It’s their way of mitigating their rotten 13 years in power by trying to make other parties seem equally as bad. In reality, no matter how bad the others are, no other party is even half as bad as Labour.

          You also seem to have forgotten to append the Labour trolls’ slogan of “vote UKIP”. Sorry to have to break the news to you, but Ed won’t pay you a penny for that post. Try again in a little while, eh? Don’t forget to mention UKIP next time.

            Half as bad, or less, they’re rotten to the core
            Worse than any Parliament there’s been before
            All three parties’ betrayal of the nation

      Must try harder says:

      There is absolutely nothing racist about telling illegal immigrants to leave.
      They’re here illegally.
      They’re breaking the law.
      Trying to close down legitimate debate about an important issue that bothers millions of Brits with false accusations of racism is unforgivable.

    How to win the next three elections in a row says:

    Step 1.
    Immigration.
    The removal of all illegals, shutting the door to all none EU country citizens, the blocking of Romanian & Bulgaria citizens emigrating to the UK, the deportation of all criminal immigrants permanently.

    Step 2.
    Then hold a referendum on our EU membership in the summer of 2015.
    The foreign aid budget of £11 billion to be use to accomplish all of the above.

    So, on Sky News papers review a moment ago:
    Tessa Jowells answer to the NHS crisis is to restrict the admission of elderly people into hospital.

    Where will they build the gas chambers?

        Elderly British people should be first in the queue for treatment.
        They’re the ones who’ve paid into the system for 50 odd years.

        Stop access to those who weren’t born here or don’t contribute.

      So what irritating Jowell syndrome is saying is: approx.18-65 yrs old. Pay income tax, NI, VAT, car tax, petrol tax, green taxes, BBC tax, all sorts of other fvcking taxes . 65+ (while still paying most of these taxes) Become a liability.

      35 million stolen… with that sort of money Labour might be able to tell the unions to take a hike for a while. Just a thought, but is the description of the offender an orange-skinned man with a South African accent by any chance…?

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
