    Does not look too good for the two major parties according to Cashcroft’s research company article in the Guardian by your old pal Andy Rawnsley Guido http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jan/05/lord-ashcroft-poll-dowses-tories-optimism, whether UJip can convert his potential votes into votes is another matter me thinks.

    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.

    John Denham can afford to drop clangers after the one Dave dropped in Southampton last week.

    Its really desperate stuff when you have to get an Estate Agent to sell a property to herself in order to pull off a P.R. Stunt.

    Would have been far better off having shipbuilding talks in Portsmouth but we all know what Dave thinks of Pompey don’t we – he’s shit on the city as many times as PM as Hitler did in the whole of World War 2.

    Since when has Cameron been on the right? Big State, high taxes, more and more public spending…doesnt sound like the right to me.

    Casual Observer 5 says:

    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:

    I retrospectively hat-tip you for getting there first.

    Should have hit refresh before posting myself.

    Shameless, cheap, populist, and positively mongoloid PR philandering by Dave.

    Word is that there is big demand for east European brick layers and electricians in the Witney area.

  56. 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.

    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 ?

    If a little old lady, for example, wants to sell her house and signs up with an estate agent who gives her an asking price perhaps a little on the low side and then that agent sends his mate around with an offer at that lower price I think that is fraud and the agent goes to jail.

    Casual Observer 5 says:

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

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

    Please note–we are not at war with Russia, or even very cross with them. It is quite logical for Cde. Putin to be checking out Scotland as the territory may become available for rent or purchase after 2015. 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.

    Cameron cannot claim Parliamentary privilege for pulling a stunt such as this.

    Agree with sentiment, but N!geria is a big economic interest of the UK, as are some other countries down there.

    Primarily with N!geria it is an interest in hydrocarbons.

    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.

    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 ?

    Piss Crackham says:

    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.

    “The Nigerian research effort comes in response to the UK’s recent threat to cut all aid if the country proceeds with legislature that would jail same-sex couples for up to 14 years. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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?
