    these cartoons get more and more pisspoor by the week


  3. 8
    Orson Cart says:

    The cartoon is as piss poor, as the idea that under a pound a week will make a difference to the surfs.


  4. 10
    Jack Ketch says:

    It’s not about a pound making a difference; it is about shutting up the “Flower Children” and Ball-Boys on the Opposition front bench. Like 50 pence increases to Old Age Pensions, the amount is meaningless, the action, everything. Rather like George Osborne embracing Stella Greasy (what a stimulating concept!) and her anti-payday loan campaign–she cannot continue to crap on the Government if they agree withe her and the best bit of Leftie eye-candy is relegated. (NB Fat Abbot no longer criticises Gove since his protestations of love–how could she?)


  5. 11
    How about UKIP? says:

    Here is a bit of good news.

    Labour’s lead over Tories cut as Ukip enjoys new surge – poll
    Labour down two on 35%, Tories unchanged on 28% and Ukip up three on 19% in latest fortnightly poll.

    Vote UKIP, its making the liblabcon very nervous.

          God help us if Dave gets in again. He wants to invite 75 million Turkish Muslims followed by millions more Georgians, Ukranians, Moldovans and Kazakhs.


          • Psyche the Dog says:

            Well he wants ready trained cheap labour, and of course the more immigrants to the UK the more the price of houses and land goes up, just what big landowners want, what. what. Does anyone know someone who has family connections with large landholdings?

          Get Roma

      Shitting his pants in terror, One-term Dave says:

      UKIP isn’t making me nervous at all.

      And now, here’s a whole bunch of proposals to keep immigrants out. Enjoy them, until the EU overrule each and every one.

      Vote UKIP - it is your duty says:

      Proof that UKIP are taking votes from Labour as well as the Tories.


      • 135
        Psyche the Dog says:

        Quite easy, they are seen as the only party of protest now, as the LibDems were years ago, UKip seem fairly active in my area (next constituency to Rotherham). The trouble with taking members and voters from all parties they may end up splitting into separate factions

    Sam the Skull drinking Buckfast in Maryhill says:

    Scots, it is impossible for you to lose the referendum on independence.
    If it is voted up, you gain your freedom, and you can piss, piss, piss in the faces of the English.
    If it is voted down, you remain in the UK Parliament, where you can piss, piss, piss in the faces of the English.
    I repeat: it is impossible for you to lose the referendum.

      Yes it is, if they vote for independence they will have really pissed on their chips.

        Bert Camus says:

        Sharing a common border with an independent country is exactly what you English need.

        You will have to start looking at yourselves really carefully and realise that you have to be competitive.

        When an independent Scotland beats you with lower taxes and a lower minimum wage businesses will desert you instantly and you will find your young people leaving in droves.


        • 29
          Low-paid Scottish worker says:

          What’s that about a lower minimum wage?

          You mean all the poor and teh East Europeans will go to Scotland for the extra bennies. And then where will Scotland be? Back to England to save them again.

          SleeplessInKirkaldy says:

          I normally ignore these comments as we shouldn’t feed the trolls, but (seriously) what planet are you on if you believe taxes would go down in an Independent Scotland?


          • bell did not invent the telephone, he developed it from an original idea by others says:

            All socialists are as thick as shit, but a special mention must be made for the jock socialist. It could be the deep fried mars, who knows? After one hundred years of socialism they still have the highest per capita prison population in the EU, the highest number of drug abusers and alcoholics, the highest number of single mums, one of the highest numbers on benefits generally, the highest number with heart related diseases. Is it really rocket science to work out that socialism could have something to do with this continuing grinding shitfuck of socialistic haplessness? Thick? there isn’t a fucking word invented for it yet. Jocks still think they play the best football in Europe, if not the world, despite the evidence of winning fuck all internationally. That’s how fucking delusional they are.


          • Psyche the Dog says:

            Bell, don’t forget all those Scottish and Scottish surnamed Tory MPs, and the old Scottish economists.


          • Anonymous says:

            David Donald Cameron – sounds pretty thick and pretty Scottish to me..


          • Jack Ketch says:

            @Alexander Bell Denier.
            When I was very young–maybe 50 years back, there was a Panorama or a World in Action report about the lead pipes still being used for water supplies in Scottish slums (i.e. Scottish homes) when most had been replaced in the rest of the country. There was something specific about the metallic component that made them particularly damaging to health by causing a degree of lead poisoning in the young, retarding intellect and promoting violent behaviour. Maybe the report still exists, maybe something was done–probably not.


        • 65
          Clown (Ex Swivel-Eyed Loon) says:

          Lower taxes! In Scotland!

          Don’t make me fackin’ laugh, when did socialist ever reduce taxes?



          • Psyche the Dog says:

            Brownie did, by lowering the basic of tax, the Cons were completely silent


          • Alice says:

            Brown lowered taxes? In which parallel universe was that?
            When he cut the standard rate from 23% to 20% in 2007, funding it by abolishing the 10% rate, meaning that anybody earning less than £18,500 a year saw their tax bills increase to fund cuts for those earning more!
            At the time this only confirmed that he was away with the fairies.


        • 91
          Tom Catesby. says:

          Post ‘independence’, it will be interesting to see what costings and arrangements the Scottish Gov’t will have to make, given the SNP announcement not to join the Schengen agreement, to stop the newly established border being an open door to English and other foreign nationals without check. The remaining members of the rump UK, will need to do nothing of course and road maps to the islands and highlands can be handed out to many of our new friends from eastern europe, for a start.


    • 94
      Selohesra says:

      30% of income tax comes from 1% of the tax payers – how many of those 1% are in Scotland and what tax rate will the Jocks need to compensate?


      • 152
        altruism in industry says:

        if it’s correct that 1% of the population earns 30% of the loot and also pays 30% of the tax surely they cannot be doing any tax avoidance at all ?


        • 158
          altruism in industry says:

          OK, they pay proportionally more, so they should pay a higher tax amount than 30%, so they are avoiding tax.


        • 172
          Anonymous says:

          Yes 1% of the population pays 30% of the tax.

          But a different 0.5% “elite” of the population earns 40% of the loot and pays fcuk all tax.

          What with the super rich paying no tax, and the lazy fckers on benefits paying none either, its the complete mugs in the middle who are on PAYE who end up paying for everyone… Serfs……..

        Err, how would they do that?


        • 175
          Tony London says:

          But the point is that reduced taxes in an independent Scotland will lead to loads of wealthy English taken up residence there and commuting south when they have to.

          Scotland will become the new Switzerland.

          This is what Cameron fears and why despite all the logic to the contrary from his viewpoint he wants the Scots to vote to stay in the Union.


          • Guest. says:

            But who would actually WANT to live in Scotchland?
            Full of foreign sounding natives and bloody cold, to boot.

        Wrong, Dave and Gideon can go to the magic money tree, bend extremely low, then suddenly they can produce £50Billion which will rapidly go up to £100Billion so private companies can play very fast trains, on which no one will be able to afford to go on.

      Tom Catesby. says:

      The Ukranians are revolting because they want the opportunity to join their Bulgar and Romanian neighbours in Londonistan and some of our other increasingly infamous national toilets a.s.a.p. The Ukies’ Gov’t are currently under orders from ‘Vladimir the Impaler’, not to develop closer relations with the EU, hence the bother.

        Could we not just let them claim benefits for hoards of children they don’t have back at home like the Poles do ?

    Vote UKIP - it is your duty says:

    How to reduce fuel poverty in one easy step – stop Romanian and Bulgarian invasion and pull out of the EU, which is dragging into the country millions of poor from all over Europe and over which the UK has absolutely no control.

    Every net immigrant increases the chance they will be poor and add to the number in poverty. So bloody obvious but this obvious fact is never acknowledged by the whingeing left wing.

A ‘senior Conservative party official’ passes judgement on Theresa May:

“She is boring. A technocrat. She is Philip Hammond with a fanny. Not interesting, but rendered interesting by circumstance. And that circumstance is that she is a woman. And in an age when the Prime Minister gets it in the neck for refusing to wear a fucking T-shirt that says he is a feminist, that is a rocket boost right underneath you.”

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.
