    Problem is Dave, Ed and Nick

    Reaction against them is huge and growing

    Solution is ‘Get shot of the lot of them’

    • 23
      Not Blowing Whistles says:

      If the reaction is that people are going to vote UKIP then perhaps you are right.

      The real reaction against Dave, Ed and Nick seems to be broad disinterest as folk realize and recognize that they are liars who are not worth the time of day, or their vote.

      Dave et al. would perhaps welcome a strong reaction.

      At least then, their rabid screams of ‘Farage is a rac!st’ may actually be heard and stimulate some support for them.

      As it stands, the majority who will vote them out, the folk who haven’t bothered casting a vote for the past thirty years or so, are generally just ignoring them and making their own minds up. The difference is this time there are some non LibLabCon options, and the internet to help them with that decision.

        Ukip will do very well in 2014 but terribly badly in 2015. People know how our electoral system works and understand the choice; either you want Ed Miliband as PM or you don’t.

        • 56
          Not Blowing Whistles says:

          If you ask them up north the perceived wisdom is that the electoral system is about the choice: either you want David Cameron as PM or you don’t.

          Borrowing from Blair, there is in fact a third way, and it is not Liberal Democrat.

            My job takes me to some right shit holes, and some nice countries where people are pleasant and not dangerous. I tend to work hard while I’m there because to be frank it took a shed load of effort to get there in the first place and therefore sacking it off because I can’t be bothered seems a bit daft when I’m seven thousand miles away from home.

            It is the same for the Polish. The ones who have been bothered to get off their arses and move countries for a better wage will tend to work while they are here. Those at home in Poland are either earning enough to stay at home, don’t care enough about money to bother, or like money but are too lazy to earn it. Just the same as the British.

            You are attacking the working class by claiming they are inferior workers to Poles. Yet you have given it no thought and are likely acting because of your own prejudice.

      • 371
        Intellectual Pygmy says:

        Cameron is closer to Clegg at heart than he is Davis, of that I have no doubt. He is the product of the Tory fight to reclaim the centre ground from Blair. In effect the Tories chose the nearest thing they had to Blair to fight the 2010 election.

        Cameron beat Davis in 2005 when the grass was green for Labour and the economic feel good factor was in full swing. Would Cameron have beaten Davis on the back of a recession and an influx of EU immigrants and bad news in 2010? Would Davis and his more natural conservatism been more relevant in 2010? I don’t know for sure.

        I do think that Nigel Farage would have had a harder time building support against Davis.

    Ok, given that the blog is off the ball a little, how about this on the MILF that Cameron did the PR stint with about help to buy the other day:


    Turns out that the single mum pictured is a sales director at a property management agency, ahem, she’s some sort of estate agent.

    Worth reading the article.

    The irony, as the lefties are sort of figuring out, is that Cameron’s PR stunt designed to promote help to buy being for single mums etc., was is fact using an estate agent who perhaps has profited from the scheme.

    Joins the dots folks… you don’t need to be Miliband to figure this one out ;-)

          • Casual Observer 5 says:

            And what is embarrassing is that PR was his chosen profession before he went into politics.

            Am beginning to think that Cameron is a made up entity that is really composed of the bits of Monty Python considered not worthy of commission.

            He should perhaps consider getting shot of Crosby, as this kind of pathetic must be a team effort.

    David Cameron, a life in politics says:

    …. And then as a New Years gift in 2014, the Russ!an Navy decided to send over a warship full of missiles.

    Well, we were all a bit hung over, following the celebration of opening the borders to B’ulgaria and R’omania, and doing a heavy PR photo shoot with an estate agent to promote ‘Help to Buy’™, so no one noticed it until it was 30 miles off shore from Scotland.

    I mean, who’d have thought it ? Damned rude for the invading forces Russ!an’s not to phone ahead.

    So, putting my cunning military plan for dealing with such events into action, a destroyer was immediately dispatched to the scene.

    A day later, after letting the Russ!an’s have a good snooze and getting the RAF boys to put on an air show, we were on the scene.

    For some reason the Queen never looked me in the eye during audience from that day forward. I mean, what harm could a battle ready Russ!an warship full of sea to air missiles parked 30 miles off the coast in the Moray Firth do to her in Balmoral ?

            Yet, I am still finding myself unable to rise to the thundering crescendo of shoutyness and general idiocy that is the Mail comment section. Our relationship with the Russian Navy is not one of Cold War adversaries anymore. Putin is not on the verge of invading Scotland.

            We have capability problems. I have searched all day for a clue about how the RN or RAF could deploy anti ship missiles from aircraft. It seems that our ability was lost with Nimrod, although I stand to be corrected. I also have no idea where the nearest submarine full of sun dodgers was located.

            The Mail could have chosen this appearance of the Reds to highlight our lack of specific weaponry to deal quickly with the threat. Maybe we are fully capable of dealing with the threat and they just went with the Reds Are Invading bollocks anyway.

            Either way the Mail is a disgrace to rival the Guardian and should die peacefully of old age.

          I would venture the UK and EU meddling in U’kraine is perhaps a big motivation for right now.

          A good way to start the year.

          One should not underestimate Russ!a’s resolve to preserve the Naval base at Sevastopol, and influence in U’kraine itself.

          The attempt to capture their bases in Syr!a have perhaps forced Russ!a into action. The bear was fine sleeping, but some idiots had to throw a brick at it…

          Other than military bases, the U’kraine is important to Russ!a as it is essentially the countries bread basket.

          If Europe really wants U’kraine, Turkey etc. it is going to have to rerun the Crimean war properly, not screw around with the PR b/s.

          Russ!a’s swords are big and pointy, and they have no qualms about putting down dissent permanently in certain countries if the EU does not back down.

          What people should be asking is why they ceded B’ulgaria and R’omania so readily ?

          • The Danube says:

      Please note–we are not at war with Russia, or even very cross with them. It is quite logical for Cde.

Russia’s experience of inheriting broken-down industry, hordes of hopeless drunks, meglomaniac leaders and a dysfunctional public service and then turning it around suggests that they may have something to offer.

        Unfortunately, thanks to some less than enlightened foreign policy decisions going back to the Blair era, it would appear the AQ are perhaps going to capture the country.

        Not all the UK’s fault. The failure of France in its question to divide and conquer much of the rest of Africa over the past 15 years or so helped create the conditions necessary for the !slamic insurgency to develop roots.

        Why they are choosing to do updates from Lagos today though is a mystery. I do not watch the BBC period, but it perhaps has something to do with pushing diversity propaganda, and providing cover for dealing with the problems mentioned above.

            I am giving you an instance I am aware of in the last year where someone was not sent to prison by a court. He was punished, but not sent to prison.

          • altruism in industry says:

            I wouldn’t consider a knife as an item of self defence but it is the easiest way to open modern plastic packaging and is just generally a thing that guys have always had for mundane occasional purposes, especially if you are out in the sticks or have livestock.

    Over the last 40 years, only ONCE has a party won a GE without having once being ahead in a poll 16-18 months before the GE.

    So far in the last 3 Years the Tories have never been ahead of Labour the first two polls of this year give Labour a Lead of 7% and 9% respectively,the latter the Ashcroft Poll of 8000 translates to a Labour Majority of around 100.

    In order to achieve a Majority Government if Labour’s vote share doesn’t drop below 38% Which it hasn’t on average polling data since 2010 the Tories would have to achieve at least 40%
    This would be the Greatest EVER increase in a vote for an incumbent Government party since the Introduction of the Universal Franchise.

    So unless something extraordinary happens or all those LD voters who thought they were voting for a Centre Left Party in 2010 only to discover they were voting for the rear end of a Tory Pantomime Horse and promptly switched to Labour immediately after suddenly change their minds and the evidence is the reverse in that that they are happier with Labour than traditional Labour voters.

      Until they evolve out of killing each other for worshipping the wrong flavour of sky fairy, they don’t belong in a modern society. Leave them to it, and peek under the lid in about 100 years to see if they have made any progress.

According to Amalaha, his latest findings are not only backed by his university, but by God himself. The Lord, he says, has given him the “wisdom to use science as a scientist to prove g’ay marriage is wrong.” “

      KALININGRAD. Dec 31 (Interfax-AVN) – Russia’s Baltic Fleet intends to participate in all the international maneuvers that NATO countries will hold in the Baltic Sea in 2014.

      “Next year our ships will take part in several NATO-led maneuvers. Its highlight will be the traditional BALTOPS [Baltic Operations] exercises, in which the Russian Navy participated in 2013 for the first time in many years,” the Baltic Fleet commander, Vice Admiral Viktor Kravchuk, told Interfax.

      NATO’s other maneuvers that the Russian Baltic Fleet plans to join include Baltic Sarex, Dynamics Mercy and Danex, he said.

      Baltic Fleet ships also plan to take part in several bilateral exercises, including Passex.

      Next year, the fleet’s ships will also make six port calls in Belgium, the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands and Norway as part of programs to promote international and military cooperation.

      “Delegations representing the Baltic Fleet command will visit Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, France and Italy,” Kravchuk said.

      The fleet’s ships and support vessels will also continue to fulfill their missions in different parts of the world ocean both independently and within the Russian Navy’s groups, including possible deployments to the Horn of Africa and international efforts to combat sea piracy, the commander said.

      “The Baltic Fleet will become a center for active international cooperation in 2014. The Russian Navy expects visits by the Navy commanders of Denmark, Germany, Norway, France, as well as the commander of the Sixth Fleet of the U.S. Navy,” he said.

      Warships from Belgium, the UK, Germany and Norway are expected to make port calls in Russia next year.

      Cooperation between the marine forces of the Baltic Fleet and Sweden will continue in 2014.

      A delegation of the 1st Amphibious Regiment of the Swedish Navy will visit the Baltic Fleet’s marine brigade in Baltiysk next year, Kravchuk said.

As for Sky, I would never pay into this rubbish TV service, with umpteen cr*ppy channels, with there millions of stupid adverts . So their reputation hasn’t fallen at all, as it can’t go any lower. I wonder if Dermot Murnaghan and his team, if they sleep at night thinking of new ways to entrap their next scalp, especially if its a UKIP one?

        David Cameron on the Marr show said refering to EU negotiations”….They need more common taxes, common banking unions, and as they get change, we shall get change too…”

        It seems as if as a concession to get what he wants he will trade our ability to set taxes and will give the European Union sovereignty over the Bank of England.

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.”
