PM: 9 Journalists Stopped By Police at Tory Away Day

According to Tory MPs in the room, the Prime Minister just told them that nine journalists have been “stopped” by the police for trying to infiltrate their away day conference. The PM said:

“I don’t know if they were tasered”

The news was met with a resounding cheer. They have been warned to be careful who they speak to in bars and restaurants. There is an unconfirmed rumour doing the rounds that some of the journalists have been nicked. Developing…

            103913 is a prime but not in any sequence I have seen here. This appears to be a sockpuppet who is saying nothing but trying to get a handle on SC’s series. If he persists for long enough, he will surely get there (monkeys and typewriters) but, if SC is switched on enough, he will have changed the sequence well in advance.

            I would hazard a guess that Alan Turing is another name for Schrodinger’s cat. Why do I say that – two reasons: (i) only Schrodinger’s cat uses the expression “sock puppet”, and (ii) he forgot to delete his web address on the post at 12:27 am.

          Ahh So – Le Grand ‘Rcism’ word / subject rears its ugly perceived head again.

          However; 30 to 35 or even 50 years ago the public’s ‘perception’ of R’cism was somewhat not quite as it ought to have been related. Why some will demand to know?

          Well – there have been a couple of follow on generations since the 70′s and 80′s and back then the perceived views of wots wot about R’cism were ‘fed’ to the public by a small coterie of the msm and its media moguls. It was easy back then for a few to set an agenda and pump it out to the public. A school Master or teachers back in the 80′s may well have had their views surreptitiously imposed on them by the media.

          However the controlling few media moguls and their mates in the highest echelons of power – never EVER ‘contemplated’ that so much information would come out in the following years AND be picked up on by THE PUBLIC in the age of the net.

          “You can fool some of the people for some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people for all of the time” – as in modern jargon – Babe-raham Lincolns saying goes.

    “Warned to be careful”

    Why would anyone, with good policies and honest intentions, be warned about being overheard. Sounds like there is a known gap between the reality and the message.

    A leader with a doubt about his people would not warn them. They would want those off message, and therefore only acting, to speak out and be recognised.

            No, im not voting for a party with no MPs it just doesnt make sense.They will never get 350 MPs or even the same number as the Libdems have, so its a wasted vote.

          • Anonymous says:

            The LibDems are on 8% in the polls.
            UKIP are on 12%…

            The libdems could well haemorrhage votes and get closer to 5%.

            In most EU countries the FPTP voting system has been banned in favour of much more democratic voting systems that better represent voter numbers and opinions.

            In Germany for example, which has elections on Sunday, they have a PR based system where if your party gets over 5% of the vote, then you get a number of MPs based on your % of the total vote.

            In the UK this would mean the LibDems and the Greens would get no MPs, meanwhile UKIP could get 80 odd MPs.

            The present system is systemically unfair, and let’s minority parties like the greens and lib dems have a grossly unfair representation in parliament.

            This is morally bankrupt and a voting system based in the dark ages.

        Understanding the UKIP supporter says:

        Some illumination is perhaps required:

        http://lordashcroftpolls.com/2012/12/the-ukip-threat-is-not-about-europe/

        What the main parties do not wish to admit is that the UKIP phenomena (as of last December in any case) is for the most part the back lash against ‘political correctness’.

        The Gay agenda is part of that, so if you feel you have leanings towards UKIP do not be surprised if you find the notion of Gay sex somewhat abhorrent (which it is) and feel the need to express that (the reaction against politically correct dogma)

        This problem can be fixed easily if the mainstream parties, particularly the conservatives, drop the PC dogma. This may yet prove to be UKIPs biggest draw, particularly from the immigrant populations who are still finding their political feet, and why the Roman!an / Bulgar!an issue next year will boost UKIP massively.

        Unfortunately they can’t without unleashing the forces which will truly destroy the flawed multi-culti mess they have been cooking over the past 40 years.

        So, sit back, watch and see what happens when major public policy fails in real time.

          Jimmy says:

          I may be old fashioned but there’s something unnatural about supporting UKIP. I’m not saying they should be persecuted but why do they have to flaunt it in public? I also think that allowing them to vote changes the definition of elections and is in a very real rightie madey uppy sense undermining democracy.

          • Understanding the UKIP supporter says:

            If you are a supporter of a political party and wish to flaunt it, then in a free and open democracy that should be fine without fear of persecution for yourself, your family and associates.

            It is also fine to question this, and the answer to your question is:

            No, there is nothing unnatural about UKIP supporters being vocal.

            It would be much more unnatural to support and not express.

            In this case it is important for people to talk and flaunt as more people being aware of the support will help make the inevitable electoral fraud which is likely to be rife in 2015 harder to get away with.

            If UKIP support is understood to be in part reactionary to the undemocratic pressure which political correctness under Labour placed on the country (shutting down debate on a number of very important social and public policy areas for 13 years) then it can be seen to be a restoration of democracy, and the more vocal expression becomes understandable.

            There is nothing unnatural about supporting UKIP, if you are a libertarian, agree with UKIP policies, or just like the UKIP people.

    ii) Going back over 30 yrs to school days is scraping the bottom of the barrel. The more they scrape the more support grows
    iii) Channel 4 smear and pro-muzzie agenda will only help UKIP support

        Didn’t Attenborough state that he was just reading from script (which he had not written) ?

        He is completely wrong about the famines in Ethiop!a: They were product of civil war, not competition for scarce land resource:

        http://tinyurl.com/p8lcn7o

        Some facts comparing Ethiop!a with UK:

                                  Ethiopia         UK
        -----------------------------------------------------
        Land Mass (sq km)  :      1,104,000      243,610
          Total Land (%)   :             91           99
          Arable     (%)   :             13           24
          Perm Crop  (%)   :           1.01         0.18
          Water      (%)   :              9            1
        Population Density 
        (people / sq km)   :             83          256 
        

        Ethiopia is about 5 times the size of the UK and has 85,000 sq km more of arable land, and much larger fresh water available.

        With that population density the argument about competition for land resources does not hold up.

            The aspect the press failed to report on at the time is that the drought which we saw on TV started after the famine and was not the cause.

            It was not exactly ethnic cleansing either, but government counter-insurgency policies in Ethiop!a and Er!trea. In this famine, 150k people were killed by Ethiop!an army and air force. The ones we saw were the rest who died as a result of the resettlement policies and famine.

            Most of the food which was sent to Eth!opia the government there deliberately allowed to rot in port. This is another aspect of the L!ve A!d response which was not reported on.

            The difference now is that the state is no longer synchronized with the people. This is largely because many functions of the state have been taken over by the EU.

            What you see now, and the reaction you feel is roughly how the Russ!an’s felt towards Pravda whilst under commun!sm.

            Switch it off and ridicule, but be aware that the next step for the state if this disconnect doesn’t correct is to proceed with strategies of tension and low level terror campaigns against the population in order to coerce change.

      The reason that there are nuclear arms in !srael is a result of USSR’s nuclear weapons in Cuba and the resulting Bay of Pigs Cold War brinkmanship. The US had sited nuclear weapons in the USSR’s backyard…Turkey. The brinkmanship was unwound when the US came up witht he clever idea of dismantling their nuclear weapons from Turkey…and covertly relocating them “just down the road” in !srael.

    If the Government of the day are having a ‘private meeting’ and members of the public are excluded along with the presumption that 9 journo’s are supposedly also excluded – what’s it all about eh Cameron?

    Well – for the government of the day to hold a meeting in ‘private’ is rather contrary to what they [the government] stated / do state day in day out in that they were elected:-

    “To represent the views of their constituents”.

    There is some sort of ‘private criminal enterprise’ going on here which is not what these people were elected to office for.

    Is it 1989 – East Germany all over again? I hope so … and to remind some of a previous similar uttering on here …

    Isn’t it always those atop the rotting stinking pile – who are the last to put their hands up and admit that they are the most criminal of all?

      Not Blowing Whistles says:

      I think they may have been discussing the mechanics of calling an early election, and if Clegg / Cameron were in conference then perhaps discussing how the Libs could form a coalition with Cons.

      The election in G’ermany may be spooking them a little as all signs out of the EU are overwhelmingly negative.

      Hain just stated on This Week that he expects UKIP to do Ok and raised the Ashcroft poll – which is important particularly what it is showing in the marg!nals.

      UKIP could end up being the third party which makes the coalition.

      With the purple ties floating around and shift of Tories towards SDP style party, a ‘Grand Coalition’ between Con-Lab may be in the offing in 2015.

    Point of Information 7 says:

    Good development on Syr!a:

    Wash!ngton Post reported that !ran is apparently reassessing the US as a result of the back off on using force against Syr!a. Contrary to the neo-con line that decision has bolstered US credibility with !ran as they now perceive the US as being an entity which can be negotiated with. This is significantly more constructive than previous where previous !ranian governments had no option other than to consider the US an overtly hostile entity.

        Point of Information 7 says:

        I don’t agree with that analysis due to the presence of Russ!a, and the fact that there has been significant change within !ran of which the Rouhan! government is an expression.

        The Cler!cs are much less powerful now, in both mainstream !ran and the government, as economic realities have begun to assert. This is reflected particularly strongly among the younger generation of !ranians.

        !ran would be interested in seeing the conflict in Syr!a ended as that conflict is impacting regional trade, and is impacting !ran.

        The Sunn! / Sh’!a issue is a little less clear cut now in absolute terms for !ran due to the presence of Russ!a. There is now another super power who can block the US, and perhaps be coerced into defending Sh’!as. This latter conjecture is of course false, as Russ!a has no particular interest save it would prefer if !ran did not site US missile shield bases within its borders.

        The apparent change of US Foreign Policy which is now playing out on Syr!a, !ran will wish to support. Obama may well welcome this as it would help him get the US out of the larger sectarian conflict between Sunn! / Sh’!a !slam which the US has drawn into as a result of the war on terror.

        !ran will likely try to play Russ!a / US off against each other on Syr!a / US Missile Defense and access to its resources – perhaps hel!um deposits.

        The !ranian government will likely not push that too far though recalling what happened in the !ran !raq war, but certainly will use it as a tool for removing the current economic sanctions it is currently subject to, and will wish to use Russ!a as a shield against perceived !sraeli aggression.

        • 273
          Tachybaptus says:

          A very judicious analysis, subject of course to none of the participants having one of the attacks of madness that they are all prone to, and upsetting the delicate balance of power and interest.

          • Point of Information 7 says:

            The probability of a moment of madness cannot be discounted, but the probability that such a moment of madness will be created by an external party seeking to destabilize is very high.

            The presence of the second major power, Russ!a is the balancing force which should prevent this.

            For the usual suspects:

            !ran would prefer to ‘trade’. !srael has Russ!a on its doorstep and does not have US Public opinion or the US government fully behind it.

            The out fielders:

            One should be concerned about a Gulf State, Saud! or perhaps Europe itself doing something stupid.

            Pressure will be maintained by the US until Syr!a’s CWC application has finished being processed by the UN (should be couple of weeks now), and there is some meaningful steps made in removing and destroying Syr!an CW stock piles. The threat of force is important for keeping that process moving, nothing else.

            The above on !ran offering to help with the negotiation for ending the civil war is a good reminder of what the real mission objective in Syr!a is, and demonstrates that this is recognized by the parties involved.

            If one is looking for a loser in all this, that honor belongs to the EU.

            As a result of not being able to project credible military force and also pursuing fundamentally flawed Foreign Policy in the Levant, the EU has just been forced to cede control of the majority of the East Med gas reserves to Russ!a.

            The flaw to European planning is continued reliance on the US to foot the costs of European security and the US losing interest in the ME. The change in US thinking is a result of its strategic pivot to As!a, development of domestic gas fracking and off shore oil drilling (reducing reliance on ME hydrocarbons) and US interest in !ran’s South Pars resources.

            If Syr!a proceeds to plan there is every reason to expect, perhaps as early as next year, DPRK to be brought to the negotiating table for steps to formally end the Korean War and perhaps deal with that countries nuclear weapons program.

            The motivation there, increasingly more credible now, is that DPRK poses a significant global risk as it is likely to engage in the proliferation of nuclear weapons.

            Irrespective of this, the US is regaining the soft power it lost under Bush now, and for US Foreign Policy planners (and those elsewhere in the world) this is a welcome development.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
