          Go on Puss, you know you like a good moan on monday mornings, as does every visitor to this blog, it gets them in the mood to verbally assault our wonderful MPs

          • Every word is considered. Every dot and comma. (except when I cock my HTML up!)

            You have no idea how much I put in on behalf of this blog. I try to explore every angle. Reach into every dark corner. Thrust into the most private of places.

            It’s not easy. But someone has to do it.

            ‘You have no idea how much I put in on behalf of this blog. I try to explore every angle. Reach into every dark corner. Thrust into the most private of places.’

            You sound like a porno director.

            Nothing wrong with that…..

          • Oh Dear! You must have a truly disgusting mind!


            Well done! Have a Guinness! :-)

          • Psyche the Dog says:

            Are you appreciated for all that time you put in, you seem to be on most of the day, this blog would not be anything without your incisive contributions, I hope Guido rewards you for your great efforts.

          • Appreciated. But I don’t think you quite understand.

            I come in and out.

      No it is not you fucking uncouth, uncultured fuckwipe, it is, as all political cartoons are, absolutely fucking pony. Inane, safe, sterile, about as funny or amusing as funding a lump on your wife’s funbag while she is giving you a soapy tit wank. Then you are left with the dilemma of “do I use it to give my helmet that little extra tingle before I blow my stones all over her gormless craggy face, or do I stop and tell her and wait till she stops crying before I nip off to the bog to tug one out while she phones the doctor?”-
      We’ve all been there right fellas?

      A Useless Twat says:

      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.

        • 117
          Symbologist says:

          There is an old British folk tale that says the red on the Robin came from a drop of the Blood of Christ, when the Robin sang to Christ on the cross in order to comfort Him.

          Another tale has it that the red breast came from a robin impaling himself on the crown of thorns when trying to peck it away to releave Christ’s pain.

          • Jesus Christ says:

            Bullcrap. It’s a warning to other birds. Even that moron Richard Dikwad Dawkins knows that.

            But here’s a conundrum for you. When animals evolved eyes which came first: the eye or the part of the brain that operates the eye?

            If the eye came first was it just sitting there staring blankly?

            Or maybe the brain evolved first, in which case it was going “oh my god, I can’t see! Why is it so dark in here? Where the fuck am I?

          • Binary says:

            It is not bullcrap. it is a statment of fact. Such tales exist.

            Of course, they were probably just tales. No sillier than the idea that eyes and brains evolved seperately rather than together

          • Jesus Christ says:

            Ahhh, so you think the alleles that formed the necessary processing in the brain for vision randomly mutated into existence at exactly the same time as the alleles that randomly mutated to create the eye.

            Isn’t that a bit like believing a webcam and a laptop could be called into existence randomly without any knowledge of each other and still work together?

            Stop you’re cracking me up. You’ll be telling me you believe in horoscopes next.

      Blowing Whistles says:

      The word “resident” – is being used more and more each day to describe people / a man / a woman / a constituent … could there be some dastardly EU / NWO dark deed behind it’s increasing use throughout the msm and national and local governments for some strange purpose?

      It is a horrible little word which nullifies people into a ’1984 style’ big brother number

      i.e. Resident 12345 of region B.

      • 183
        Blowing Whistles says:

        Dictionary ‘Resident’ – living or staying at a place in order to discharge a duty etc.

        Would that be a duty to the marxist oppresive state say the EU?

        Herman van Rompuy, EU President and Leprechaun says:

        Naturally, because if we let you use the phrase “citizen of the UK” it would imply that you had some sort of special right to live here, giving you precedence over the Romanians we will be sending you in due course.

        Now shut the fuck up little Englander. The national socialists are in charge now and the thousand year reich is just beginning.

      Does that mean you were asking random people in a town centre?

    • 57
      Gooey Blob says:

      Ipsos Mori’s “All certain to vote” poll is regarded as the gold standard of polling. Labour’s lead in this poll has now slipped to just 4%. Their leader is the only one with falling satisfaction ratings and 41% of Labour’s own voters are dissatisfied with him, with 47% satisfied. Worse still for Ed, economic optimism is apparently strong.

      We are a little under 18 months from an election and, as I have been saying for over a year, Labour are going down to a major defeat in 2015.

      • 207
        Sir William Wayde says:

        Since there wasn’t a general election today, any forecast of what the result ‘would have been’ is incapable of being right or wrong. It is as right or wrong as saying “Gandalf has porage for breakfast”. In other words, it is waffle.

      He’s doing pretty well, considering Labour had emptied the public coffers. Not well enough, mind, but he’s lifted the tax burdon on the poor who wish to work and the elderly are being protected from the worst effects of the austerity.

      I have no idea what the word ‘vulnerable’ means though: it is one of thsoe words social workers seem to use to justify abusing their powers in an arbitrary manner and council housing departments pray in aid of discriminating against homeless men. The frail, as ever, are supposed to be being looked after by the ring-fenced NHS

        It’s like this. If the EU was a great idea from the start, almost nobody would be against it. The fact that around 50% are against it, and remain against after many years, suggests that it might be a very bad idea.

        So then it becomes just a matter of time. If it was a very good idea then we will all come to like it. If it was a very bad idea we will all come to hate it. The proof of the political pudding is in the eating.

        Oh shit, it looks like it was a very bad idea indeed.

      He hasn’t done so very much damage to the economy. The Labour Party were in charge when it seriously contracted.

    Quiet Bat Person says:

    Osborne is nothing but a piece of verminous lying Tory scum. He has made the abject poor, sick, disabled, dying and aged pay for the criminal actions of the equally verminous parasitic bankers who have brought the western world to its financial knees with the help of traitorous politicians and covered up by our treacherously dishonest mogul controlled media. They are all doing lasting damage to our country and its people and are proud of their betrayal.

      By “he” I presume you are referring to Gordon Brown?

      Do you work for the BBC or the Guardian? says:

      So all the poor are now disabled?

      You should be aware that any one person who is poor but not disabled proves you wrong and therefore you must be either a liar or insane (your assertion is too obviously stupid as to be a mere mistake).

    Just had a read [took a copy of it btw] of that Duncan Ganley list blog from Oct 15th 2010.

    Wow what an interesting read – lots of little clues as to CRMM and SC … and the banks.ters of course. Rothies included as ever in the list.

      Oh, here we go again. You are so drearily predictable Blowing Whistles.

      If you have an allegation to make, perhaps you would like to state clearly and unambiguously what it is.

      Otherwise people are liable to come to the conclusion that you have very little of value to say beyond infantile innuendo which is devoid of any meaningful content.

      There is another life outside your bedroom door…

      It beggars belief that the Mirror are fronting that story – because she is the creation of Labours years of dumbing down the electorate dumbing down education – but then the marxist loving socialist fabian bumbclutzes still dont see that its milibands mob [state] who have played them all like fools – the Union masters too – what a bunch of fucking thickos?

        Keep the plebs stupid says:

        Compare the layout of today’s newspapers to those of the 40s and 50s, and you suddenly realise just what moronic comics they are.

        Today’s rags contain hardly any actual news, just regurgitated/manufactured celeb and sports drivel, interspersed with stories designed to re-enforce state orthodoxy on an issue. And all containing as few words as possible.

        Even Orwell would have been shocked at the state’s success in dumbing down the population.

      I’m sure she’ll get every medical procedure she asks for – no doubt she’ll be asking for facelifts and nose jobs and other stuff – all within her human rights.

      Of course if she was a child like YoungNells in genuine need of real NHS medical support – don’t expect it – it won’t happen!!

        Westminster and the rest of the establishment don’t give a fuck about a “YoungNell” or anyone else.

        Why do you give credence to the pretence of a decent society in England? You are as deluded as Nell FFS.

        Everyone needs to grow up and get even for once in our sorry sorry lives.

    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

    If Labour really want to win the biggest landslide in history (by stealing UKIP votes) and go on to govern for the next 50 years they just have to make the top 5 priorities in their manifesto as follows:

    1. Invoke article 50 and restore full sovereignty (border controls,fishing grounds etc) as it was before 1972.

    2. Abolish all taxes on petrol,electricity and gas.

    3. Halt all low/un-skilled immigration until we have a shortage of low/un-skilled labour.

    4. No more asylum seekers allowed into Britain.

    5. Restrict foreign aid to natural disaster relief.

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.”
