Official: Government Ignore UN Loon’s Report

The report of this morning’s Lobby briefing claims “there was no audible reply” when the PM’s spokesman was asked if “the Government would be taking into account the views on housing and benefit policies from a Brazilian UN academic who ‘allegedly dabbled in witchcraft and allegedly made animal sacrifices to Karl Marx'”. Some people heard the reply though, Paul Waugh points out it was: “I think you’ve answered your own question.”

So that went well for the witchdoctor activist posing as an independent expert…

      Would it be safe to assume from the amount of time that you spend posting comments on here that you do not have many friends?

      I think I have answered my own question.

          You do not even begin to understand me.

          I do not measure the number of friends that I have but rather the depth of the friendships I enjoy with my true friends. Contrary to the impression given by my numerous sock puppets, I do not spend the whole day dashing into town for coffee with my friends, and I do not think it is necessary to do so in order to have a friendship. The fact that I choose to live so far from England means that many of my friendships are maintained by writing not meeting.

          Whilst it is difficult for me to count my acquaintances on this blog as true friendships, I think that the depth of support that I receive here rather disproves your assumption.

          • 4398 is not a prime number and therefore this has been posted by my sockpuppet.

            He should beware that he cannot post any old prime as I have a series that is discernible to any competent mathematician of which he certainly does not appear to be one.

            The comment is also far to egocentrically based to be mine.

            I may well change my algorithm soon in view of this poor attempt.

      Yeah, right... says:

      There should be a very simple way to tell if a country has a human rights issue.

      For example, if people from countries with real human rights issues are prepared to stow themselves into the landing carriage of a 747 in order to come here, then it’s safe to assume that this is actually quite a nice country to live in and we don’t need HR advice from the UN.

      For her next mission, why doesn’t she go and investigate housing conditions in Yemen, or Somalia. She could get some real time experience of just how well the UN is respected.

      Only a leftie could make such a ridiculous comparison. Iraq ignored multiple UN injuctions and used chemical weapons to murder hundreds of thousands of his own people. We simply ignored a ranting fruitcake and respected the human rights of working people not to be forced to provide unnecessary luxuries for others.

      Many charities. local government officers and councillors, including Tory councils and councillors all oppose the Bedroom Tax. Government took no notice of them. We now see record levels of rent in arrears, people being moved out of their homes and still the idea behind this silly tax, to free up larger homes is failing.
      Simpletons. There are just no smaller houses for those the government want to move to move to. So this UN woman is simply telling it as it is.

        The fact that you used the phrase “Bedroom Tax” marks you out as yet another of those Labour activists that somehow feels that if you post here you will make your point in such a forceful manner we’ll all find ourselves agreeing with you and voting Labour at the next election.

        No doubt the same thinking led you and other Labour activists to believe that inviting this loony from Brazil to comment on UK housing and benefits matters would be credible and not make you all look as daft as she obviously is.
