One Rule for Them…

…And one rule for the hard-working hard hat-wearing people at the Tetley tea factory in Eaglescliffe today.

Clearly health and safety rules don’t apply to the PM.

        Blak Jack is in trouble methinks says:

        Think this explanation about Dromey’s “Pikey” tweet is total rubbish:

        1. Why on earth would auto-correct even know about, never mind choose, an offensive racist word?
        2. “Pikey” is nothing like “Postie” and isn’t auto-correct actually more likely to know about and choose for example “Postman” or “Postbox”?
        3. The two explanations given so far actually contradict each other, so somebody is up to something.

        • 23
          Socialists are worthless retarded subhuman filth says:

          I don’t find “pikey” offensive.

          However, I find people who find the word ‘pikey’ offensive offensive.

          • Blak Jack is in trouble methinks says:

            Yeah, but you don’t write the auto-correct software.

            There’s no way auto-correct would choose an offensive word. Just imagine if it used “f’uck” or “b’ollocks” on a kids phone? This explanation is total nonsense.

        • 34
          The definite article says:

          The issue is not about calling someone “pikey’ if that is his name and he answers to it. The issue is calling someone ‘the Pikey’ as that implies he is being refereed to as a noun or office holder and not as a person.

        • 48
          Lord Stansted says:

          All of a sudden, I feel very old. I have no idea what a pikey is or what it means. I have never heard or read the word. I hear it’s “offensive”, but I am unaware who is likely to be offended. I can only conclude therefore that there must be millions of people “out there”, who know of the word and are likely to be offended, but have never told me or any of my friends. What the fuck has happened to this country?

          The Tories have a major problem and that is that no one believes anything they say that involves the EU. Lets just look at the evidence against believing them.
          We had the “Cast Iron Guarantee” on a Lisbon Referendum, which failed to materialise.
          We had the Promise to cut the EU budget which ended up not happening and we wound up not only paying more but have been recently asked for yet another massive contribution that has gone through on the nod. We are about to be forced to give convicts the vote, which we were told, would only happen over Cameron’s dead body. Now we are being told that benefits will not be allowed for Romanians + Bulgarians for at least a year. This too is more Cameron posturing in fear of possible civil unrest and the ever-growing threat from UKIP.
          The Internet has and is calling the Tories bluff on a daily basis thus undermining decades of political bluster and misinformation by the politically manipulated media.
          There is no way back.

        I think there must be many sitting MPs who realise that the so-called “Safe Seat” is no longer a positive. The whole political landscape is under scrutiny by the electorate and an air of dissatisfaction or in some cases disgust abounds. The unparalleled rise of defections to UKIP has caused the government to make all kinds of sweeping statements and unfullfillable promises in the vain hope that the UKIP surge can be halted. However the fact that Cameron’s latest ploy regarding halting benefits for Romanian/Bulgarian immigrants is announced only weeks before the influx arrives proves beyond any doubt that public outcry is calling the shots and not strategic planning. The Government appear to be floundering and I foresee many MPs resigning rather than face the public humiliation of electoral defeat.
        The writing is well and truly on the electoral wall, interesting times methinks
        You will NEVER get a referendum from Camero
        Now before the EU elections take place we will see a massive influx of immigrants from Romania and Bulgaria. We must also recognize the fact that the EU elections are run on proportional representation and not FPTP. Coupled with that is the indisputable fact that a huge swathe of the electorate do not believe anything Cameron says. We had the Cast Iron Vow then we had the three-line whip against a referendum. Then he told both Mr Bone and the HOC that we would not get a referendum and now a further promise but only if he gets a majority. Well the public are not stupid and many Tory MPs realize that their days are numbered hence the overtures to UKIP who they have spent years insulting Cameron has blown it big time. Ask yourself this would you lend this man money if he promised to pay it back after the election?

        If you have been stupid to work for as long as possible and pay your taxes and N.I. and also be stupid enough to put a little money aside each month for your old age, you really are a Pratt, because if there comes a time when you need help from the state,due to ill health they will say no, you cant work but you have some money in the bank, it doesn’t matter that you have paid in for decades you get nothing.
        A good analogy would be winning the lottery going to the office to collect the money and find that they have looked at your finances and say you have got enough money so we aren’t going to pay out.
        It seems that paying in counts for nothing, but if you are a scumbag with multiple kids from multiple , unknown fathers you are fawned upon and provided with all your needs (alcohol, fags etc.) .
        It’s a great system no wonder the country is on its backside.

      This is all smoke and mirrors as you well know it because after the 1st of November 2014 we don`t stand a cat in hell`s chance of getting out of the EU
      When, Britons betrayed will become EU slaves
      Parliament’s Traitors shall not be forgot!

      On the 1st November 2014 the right of Parliament to legislate over us in 43 areas, the important ones, will be removed and be made subject to approval, by majority vote of the lying undemocratic and unelected bastards fronting the EU.
      They call it QMV, Quality Majority Voting, which translates in English to: You’ll do what we tell you, or else.
      Heath – Thatcher – Major – Blair – Brown, are all, by allowing this, acting in High Treason, but as every important Government post is now held by an EU Common Purpose trained thug, waiting to take over from elected local government officials from 1st November 2014, there seems to be little we can do about it.
      Below, are the 43 areas of ‘competence’, areas we British have been declared incompetent to decide for ourselves.

      Make a note of the last one because it says we cannot leave the EU unless the other members allow it.

      On 1st November 2014 the following areas of competence will switch from requiring unanimous approval of all member states to qualified majority voting only:
      (43) Initiatives of the High Representative for Foreign Affairs – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Administrative co-operation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Asylum – Nice: QMV; Lisbon: QMV
      Border controls – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Citizens’ initiative regulations – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV

      Criminal judicial co-operation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Criminal law – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV

      European Central Bank – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      European Court of Justice – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Europol – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Eurozone external representation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Foreign Affairs High Representative election – Lisbon: QMV
      Freedom of movement for workers – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Freedom to establish a business – Nice: Unanimity Lisbon QMV
      Freedom, security, justice, co-operation & evaluation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Funding the Common Foreign & Security Policy – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      General economic interest services – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Humanitarian aid – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Immigration – Nice: QMV; Lisbon: QMV
      Intellectual property – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Organisation of the Council of the EU – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Police co-operation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      President of the European Council election – Lisbon: QMV
      Response to natural disasters & terrorism – Lisbon: QMV
      Rules concerning the Armaments Agency – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Self-employment access rights – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Social Security Unanimity – Nice: QMV; Lisbon: QMV
      Space – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Sport – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Structural & Cohension Funds – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Tourism – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Transport – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
      Withdrawal of a member state – Lisbon: QMV

      Therefore, all Cameron has to do is keep stalling over a referendum, which if he were to call one, would enable any of us to arrest him for High Treason.

        All hard hats usually do is make you two inches taller, so that you bang your head in places you never did before, prompting onlookers to congratulate themselves for making you wear the sodding thing, even though it falls forty feet whenever you look down off the scaffolding.

      Clearly the purple tie binds the political elite in ways we have not yet understood, but it is symbolic of the “not a fag paper between them” realities of our mock democracy that they can’t even be seen having a different opinion on the colour of minor items of clothing.

            Labour win because the Tories are so utterly dire at porganising themselves on the ground. I live in a Labour run area of London: we NEVER hear from the tories between elections.

          • FFS says:

            porganising themselves????!!!!!

            What the fuck kind of perversion is that now????

      It would not surprise me if there have been threats. That is the sort of thing lefties resort to when their corrupt arrangements are threatened.

    Another Tata site, you would think Tata were the only business in the UK the way Cameron trots round their various sites and brands. No doubt payback for Cameron allowing Tata its real money spinner flooding the country with cheap IT workers from India on uncapped ICT work visas. Oh the joys of Mr Tata being on Camerons “business advisory committee” when no British IT leaders are! The wonders of the slave trading Indian outsourcers being hidden while Cameron is given photo op after photo op.

    “On the 1st November 2014 the right of Parliament to legislate over us in 43 areas, the important ones, will be removed and be made subject to approval, by majority vote of the lying undemocratic and unelected bastards fronting the EU.” ……………….includes:-”Withdrawal of a member state – Lisbon: QMV”.
    So “we cannot leave the EU unless the other members allow it”

    Crikey !!!

      We can smash our way out.

      The whole EU is a house of cards. Once one country has had enough of them, others will follow.

      Any attempt to send in Euro cops/paramilitary thugs WILL be regarded as an act of war by the patriotic native citizens of any country they attempt it, I’ve no doubt.

      The peoples of the Eastern Europe managed to overthrow the might of the Warsaw Pact, we will manage to overthrow the EU.

    Guido is struggling with this story as there are many people not wearing a hard hat. If you’ve got nothing to say Guido, then it’s best to say nothing.

    Why is it deemed necessary to wear hard hats in a tea factory, are they expecting a hostile air strike ?

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.”
