      Not “literally” writing blank cheques. Probably not even literally printing them, as that would have been done by a silly-big-cheque manufacturer.

      Also there is only one cheque

      How about …

          Yup, it flies in the face of everything the Government is trying to do…
          Why not dinners just for the poorest?

          • Honest View says:

            Well at least Clegg was honest: all his party can do is stop the policies of the far bigger parties, to act as a chain around their necks. A great achievement, I’m sure.
            It’s odd how Cameron allows Clegg to gain credit for all the nice, give-away policies (kiddies’ meals etc etc.), while the Conservatives have to play Bad Cop (cruel to to the most vulnerable etc, etc,) Just why is Cameron so naive?

          • Quartermaine Savage-Splitter says:

            Well, maybe it is closer to the democracy that we should have

      The Costa Concordia cost £375m to build, £500m (and rising) to salvage and will realise some £20m or so in scrap.

      It reminds one of Brownian post-neoclassical endogenous growth theory economics, the more so when one realises that the most valuable parts are found in the toilets.

      Indeed Tachy – Boris appears to be losing the plot. The real laugh was of the full content of his quote and where it led to. He set sail and having plotted the wrong course thinking he could make good for himself – he crashed upon the rocks – The Captain and a band of Institutional [They all should be] plonkers.

      btw – I deliberately declined to make any mention / comment of that ‘Bar soliciting stuff’ t ‘other day … well well.

      Those Yellow Circus Tent performers were fukcing hilarious this week – I believe the public are in for lots more hilarious comedy and make believe next week too.

    The mummified body of a four-year-old boy was found in a cot in his mother’s bedroom almost two years after he starved to death, a jury has heard.

    Police who went into the property were faced with “conditions of squalor,” he said.

    “What they discovered disturbed even hardened officers,” said Mr Greaney.

    Ms Hutton was an abuser of alcohol and cannabis, the court was told.

      I have just come back from Scotland and I can tell you that when it comes to it the Scots will vote with their wallets to stay in the union ………………but if not then the first thing that needs to happen is that all LibDem and Labour MPs representing Scottish Constituencies need to be disbarred from Westminster as soon as Independence takes effect in 2016 and in the meantime not be allowed to vote on any solely english matter not affecting their constituents

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McCrone_report

          As I said last night,many people on the internet & not surprisingly the MSM take great delight at rubbishing Scotland.The utter lie that rUK subsidise the great drunken unwashed of Scotland.

          So you should all be pushing for a yes vote to free you of the neds north of the border.

          Again,what would the rUK spend all the money formerly spent on ungrateful Scots?

          Will you all get a dive in income tax? A more equal society? A conservative government for ever when the pesky Scottish Labour MPs are no longer there?

          FFS.This is the level of the debate.No wonder people disengage with politics.

          • Universal Hiss says:

            That’s up to the immigration policies of whoever the people elect.

            Perhaps the people of England should start an Independence Party?

          • Universal Hiss says:

            I would imagine very few Scots blame the English for everything.Those that do are very stupid just like the very stupid English berating the Scots for being subsidy junkies.There is no bigger leech on the UK economy than London.However London pulls in vast amounts into the country.

            It’s not easy to understand is it? Flinging insults is very easy.

            Anyone with sense would blame the politics spewing from Westminster as do many people from Shetland to Cornwall.

            This whole blog is dedicated to the failure & frailty of politics in Westminster. Hundreds of bloggers agree.

            The politics of Holyrood may not be much better but I would like to see a change to the status quo.

        Interesting. What part of Scotland did you go to? How long did you stay?How many people did you talk to about the independence debate?

        If Scotland does vote yes I think there will be a two year shuffle period but I think that depends of the electoral cycle within both countries.Not one of the most pressing problems I wouldn’t have thought.

          • Keep Calm, Vote UKIP says:

            Hi UH, I think the double negative in your sentence doesn’t make much sense, unless you did mean to say that you do not think about the issues not being pressing ?

            However, why JS thought that warranted an ad hominem is perhaps one of those mysteries which one should not think about.

            Got your meaning though, and agree with what I think is your actual sentiment :-)

        They are mean, disloyal, willing to sell our country to the EU and to green interests. They are only in government because the mathematics of our system granted them a totally unrepresentative say in the way the country is governed. They strut around as if they are a major party with a huge following. They are untrustworthy to the very highest degree and were they in alliance with a proper Tory rather than a disguised Liberal, they would have been put in their place long ago.

          Immigration: half a millon last year and rising says:

          Funny, I was walking around my town today (in Suffolk), and there were lots of “foreign” types (very very unusual). And one ‘foreign’ type was chatting to a local in English, but when she turned to her 3 kids (all aged about 2) she spoke to them in .. I dunno.. Swahili. She certainly didn’t want them to speak our language.

          So, what chance of those kids integrating? What chance of those kids being “valuable members of society”? Of them contributing to our economy, rather than being parasites, for life?

          In short, they’re just going to ignore our culture entirely and spend their lives putting their fingers in our pockets.

          Just as the LibLabCon hoped.

      Socialism is a severe mental illness says:

      Hmm. The Cons, eh? Bastards! What wankers!

      As opposed to Labour. Who lied about WMD, killed half a million men, women and children. Working class. Meh.

      As opposed to Labour, which flooded the country with immigrants who hate us.

      Tried to get social housing? Oh dear, none available. All full of immigrants.

      “Labour sent out ‘search parties’ for immigrants to get them to come to the UK, Lord Mandelson has admitted.

      “In a stunning confirmation that the Blair and Brown governments deliberately engineered mass immigration, the former Cabinet Minister and spin doctor said New Labour sought out foreign workers.

      “He also conceded that the influx of arrivals meant the party’s traditional supporters are now unable to find work.”

      Oh, and of course Labour sitting back and watching the NHS murder tens of thousands of patients. You know, because intervening would maybe perhaps discredit the NHS a bit.

    I don’t understand the logic of the Limp Dims. Why would they chose to go into government with Labour over the Tories if they had a choice?

    Going in with Labour would mean two left wing parties and the Limp Dums would have no distinction at all, they’d simply try to out left wing each other.

    At least with the Tories they do have a chance to push through distinct policies such as the 10K tax threshold.

    Whilst other policies are daft (like a mansion tax) at least being in with the Tories people can see the difference.

    Also at the next election the likelihood is Labour will get a small working majority and I don’t if Red Ed will want Clegg around, even if the Labour majority is in single figures.

    Of course the issue will be that Labour will once again have to reply on their block Scottish vote to pass legislation that will mostly effect England, something that is undemocratic and needs to be changed.

    @Casual Observer 2

    Thanks for your post. I had the good fortune to have some English friends visit yesterday and, as it was a grey day here, unusually for this time of year, we went out for a great but inexpensive lunch to a lovely hilltop village called Grožnjan which is about 40km from where I normally am. Soon after they left another friend, who lives in the same village, came around unannounced for the evening and so I was only able to make a few posts and point out the sockpuppetry perpetrated in my name, and I have no doubt, in the name of others here.

    Before turning to Kant, it seems there is plenty of mala in se in evidence within the above comments.

    It is even probable, given the fantastical lengths that some have attempted here, that if I were to mention the Categorical Imperative, I might be accused of nepotal impiety!

    Notwithstanding, you are no doubt referring to the following:

    „Handle so, dass du die Menschheit sowohl in deiner Person, als in der Person eines jeden anderen jederzeit zugleich als Zweck, niemals bloß als Mittel brauchst.“

    „Denn vernünftige Wesen stehen alle unter dem Gesetz, dass jedes derselben sich selbst und alle andere niemals bloß als Mittel, sondern jederzeit zugleich als Zweck an sich selbst behandeln solle.“

    There is a further danger that some miscreants are so far beyond redemption that they will misconstrue Selbstzweckformel with predictably disastrous consequences…

    The readers comments were overly-supportive of Robinson – I think around 400 to 500 had voted to sacking the Selfridges assistant. Now I looked this morning and the votes have been completely turned around with 4463 “green arrows” supporting the assistant and yesterdays leading comment has 2819 “red arrows”.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
