    If you think sleazy politicians would do a better job of running banks, look no further than Ed Balls after his cock-ups with the Co-op.

    Why do we have to pay for these fucking LibLabConner parasites?

      MP’s are nothing more than the front men for the rest of the shite behind them. They are no different than say Bradley Walsh being the face of The Chase.

    I’m curious about something: You know that wanker who yelled “when are you bringing back socialism?” at Ed Miliband, to which he replied “That’s what we are doing, sir”.

    Has anyone researched him? Given that it’s the kind of thing a normal person would never utter, he’s surely got to have been a plant.

    Whole episode just doesn’t ring true, and appears stage managed.

    Is there anybody left on the back benches?

    Many, too many chefs when there is already a derth of broth.

      An utterly ludicrous number now have a job title in addition to their duties as MPs. It would be quicker to list all those MPs who have not been given a job, wouldn’t it? Talk about the never-ending expansion of the gravy train. The death of patronage is never going to take place with this lot, and the state is never going to reduce its intrusion into every tiny aspect of our lives either.

      One Term Dave is a fraud, and not even a clever one at that.

      The time it takes to cut an onion could be supplied by the capacitors in the invertor. Even at Osborne nuclear prices you would need to do 300 onions before you spent a penny!

    Sack them. If the PM or a cabinet minster doesn’t know what he or she believes in he should resign, not pay people to think for him.

    Royal Mail shares up 1.59% in trading today whilst the FTSE is flat.

    Why is Cable still in the Cabinet and why is he still walking the streets?

    Liberals commit murder and fraud whilst rarely going to jail.

    Even when they are sent to jail they are sent home on tag pretty quick

    but I suffered, how I suffered in prison.

    It made me think of Oscar Wilde and the Ballad of Reading Gaol.

    It was all because I got off with a shemale and nothing to do wiht my being a lying self important shit.

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.”
