SKETCH: Play Up, Play Up and Play the Game

With his lopsided grin, easy manner and tousled hair Tristram ‘Hereditary’ Hunt, did his duty impeccably, providing public school leadership to his dogged, working class party this afternoon in the Commons. He treated the sortie with the casual grace of a subaltern in vicarage garden, and ignored the terrible casualties around him.

Disdaining the enemy’s firepower, he went elegantly over the top to launch his deadly question – how many Free Schools had been approved against official advice?

The answer: “None.” Bang, one leg taken off.

Undeterred, he threw himself forward. “Was Al Madinah school approved against official advice?” The same answer took his other leg off.

Lying there in the mud but full of pluck, he waved his troops forward. Labour MPs threw themselves into the raking machinegun fire one after the other and met the same fate. Same question, same answer.

These young class warriors in the Battle of Education. Magnificently unprepared for life. You can’t help but admire their lionlike behaviour, whatever the donkey qualities of their generals.

But what arrogant, out-of-touch elite is sending them out equipped like this? What incompetent strategist has conceived their anti-Free Schools campaign – motivated by sheer loathing of the enemy and unconcerned with massive educational casualties among their own people?

Back behind the lines, as the guns pound on: Ed Balls pours himself a brandy and broods on the destruction of his enemies.

        it is impossible to legally obtain capons any more , only black market from unregulated farms somewhere in southern europe from whence they are imported as baby female turkeys on the paperwork .

        .this because a … yes … eu directive some years back was adopted which prohibited neutering of baby “cocks” as excessively cruel and an abuse of the ” cock’ s” human (??) rights .

          It is not a good idea to attack Tristram Hunt and mke him look a fool.

          He is quite capable of making himself look a fool unaided, and so to attack him would be unsporting and ungentlemany.

        In Dante’s Inferno, the ninth and lowest circle of Hell has the Devil at its centre. He has three heads, and each of his mouths holds a sinner—the three greatest sinners of human history, all traitors to a benefactor. In the middle mouth dangles Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Christ. In the left and right mouths hang Brutus and Cassius, who murdered Julius Caesar in the Roman Senate. Brutus and Cassius appear with their heads out, but Judas is lodged head first; only his twitching legs protrude. The mouths chew their victims, constantly tearing the traitors to pieces but never killing them.

        Perhaps it is time to give these sinners a holiday. Who would you choose to fill the three mouths?

    From 2004 to 2010 when labour lost the election , youth unemployment under the waving hand of bullyballs more than doubled to nearly 900,000 because labour education had failed them and they didn’t even have basic educational skills to get a job.

    Mind bullyballs should be proud that he presided over one measure for these unfortunate youngsters – he made sure that they were all taught the skill, before they left school, about how to claim benefits.

      And don’t forget the moronic immigration policy which saw the doors open to Eastern European’s undercut and crowded out the jobs which would have otherwise been available.

      The education argument for high youth unemployment has about as much credibility as Ed Balls.

      Rac!st employment practices favoring this cheaper source of labor from abroad is what has left the UK with an unemployed younger generation.

        There was a high profile television news interview of young people at our local job centre over unemployment a while back. Our own local youths were asked whether they resented young people from abroad taking the available jobs in agriculture and the construction industry locally whilst they themselves claimed the dole.

        The answer? We have no objection to foreignors taking those jobs, they’re too hard, you have to get up too early and we don’t like being out in the cold, we’d rather have the dole.

        It’s not about cheaper sources of labour – its all about those willing to work.
        Labour, during the years of terror 1997-2010 destroyed a desire for education and the work ethic of the working classes. Don’t underestimate the destructive long term impact of their negative worthless policies.

          It is a LIE. The majority of young people want to work and are trying very hard to get a job.

          I have two sons and they and their friends are perfectly able to work and want to work. They can’t find any kind of job because there are hundreds of grown adults applying for every job that comes up. They haven’t got a chance. My sons and their friends were going around everywhere with CVs and talking to managers – always the same story, no jobs and every job they have they can choose from hundreds of applicants.

            The kids that were born here the UK has a responsibility for. They are English.

            However, that they cannot speak or write English is not a fault of the education system.

            Blame can be laid at the door of the families involved. The cases where the children have not picked up basic skills will not have made any attempt whatsoever to integrate.

            This is not an indigenous problem either: Many families, unchallenged, would have deliberately not integrated in order to protect their own culture.

            An analogy can be drawn with the Blacks who lived in the townships in South Africa, and the Aboriginal people of Austral!a.

            The respective governments spent a lot of money on programs designed to encourage these people to integrate and get ahead – in particular to give them preferential and free access to education. It was those people who rejected that.

            Why ? Because in those cases they were politically opposed to the governments in question, and importantly also wished to move ahead under their own steam.

            What has happened in many parts of the UK is essentially this, the difference being that the people involved are on English land, not their own.

      No

      What’s that you say? Balls has never hitherto acknowledged that Labour spent too much? When asked in June on Twitter if Labour had been a tad free with taxpayers’ money, he replied: “Do I think the last Lab govt was profligate, spent too much, had too much nat debt? No I don’t think there’s any evidence for that.”
      Well, exactly. Where’s the evidence? So what if the OECD has pointed out that in 2000 Britain’s structural fiscal position was one of the best in the G7, yet in 2007, just before the financial crisis, it was the worst in the G7? A mere trifle.
      So there you have it. Labour didn’t overspend last time and, even if it did, it’s now changed – and here’s another “zero-based spending review” to prove it. I, for one, believe Mr Balls and I’m shocked – shocked – that so few others do.

        It is really a joint Lib Dem / Conservative dereliction of duty, but the buck stops with Cameron: Unless, of course, he isn’t really Prime Minister any more.

        One should question why the UK is so exposed.

        Do not forget that Cameron asked the House about intervening in Syr!a only four months ago, and this very point about defending the realm whilst engaging in that theater was raised as a concern.

        Assurances were given to the House that there would be no problem.

        Without engagement in the Syr!an theater, the UK is apparently wide open to any and all.

        And responsibility for that state of affairs lies firmly with Prime Minister Cameron.

    Of course, the thing many people forget is that in islam, muslims are instructed to lie to infidels under the rule of taqqiya. They’re also taught that non-muslims are worthless and don’t deserve any mercy. So when a muzee takeaway has a dirty kitchen with rat droppings, it’s because they want to intentionally harm kuffars. It’s deliberate.

            Still – good point raised about curry’s and eating out.

            If anyone wishes to make an authentic (well B’angladeshi / North !ndian style – most curry in the UK is B’angladeshi or invented in London… I am very intimate with the difference…) curry house curry:

            Start with this recipe for Tarka Dahl

            http://www.redonline.co.uk/food/recipes/anjum-anand-s-tarka-dhal

            Bengal Gram = Yellow Lentils

            Reduce the amount of water to about 0.9l and double the amount of grated ginger. Adjust to your taste – Do not fear to add salt – helps bring out the flavor at the end if bland.

            Make sure the yellow lentils are soaked for about 24 hours, and cook them for about 45 mins to be on the safe side, before mixing with the Tarka.

            Best to use Olive oil, or coconut oil.

            Morrison’s own brand G’aram M’asala gives good results.

            To up the spice: For the tarka, use fresh Thai finger chiles, between 2 and 5.

            You can depart from Tarka and make a real curry by adding mushroom / Okra / Spinach / Courgette / boiled potato to this dish. Not all at once, and vary the quantities to taste. Don’t need a lot.

            With just the tomato, and lots of chile, chucking in some small prawns really works a treat.

            For Korma style dishes, add in (but watch the heat) Almond and Coconut Milk, keep the spice down.

            Prepare some rice as a side dish: This is a good recipe for Pilau

            h**p://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/fragrantpilaurice_67870

            Poppadom – do recommend going to an !ndian food store and picking up the real deal. Easy to shallow fry.

            You will find cost of each serving to be about £1.00, depending on how many veggies you add, or if meat is used.

            (For meat dishes – chuck the meat in and cook in the early stage with the tarka and adjust the timings.)

            Significantly cheaper than the local takeaway, and much better quality with no fear of contamination so long as your kitchen is clean.

            The secret is the red lentils. These thicken the sauce. Adjust the water for thinner or thicker.

            Gluten free, potentially vegan, very nutritious and fun to experiment with. Cook time – veggie – about 1 hour: Do not undercook the lentils :-)

It says unequivocally that non-muslims are mortal enemies and that any muslim who kills an infidel gets the keys to paradise. It’s a perverted ideology invented by an illiterate p*edophile who married a 6 year old, kept sex slaves and said god told him to have sex with his daughter in law. His own son’s wife! When he was caught, he actually said god commanded him to have sex with her! And I haven’t even mentioned what it says about killing gays and adulterers. It’s a violent, murderous ideology that’s anti women, anti gay, anti Jèw and anti Christian. Just because some muslims in your area happen to be quiet is neither her nor there.

          That is the point. If the welfare benefit bubble, that labour deliberately created in it’s years of terror 1997-2010 to replace the genuine working class vote that it destroyed, collapses over the next decade or so, what will they use for votes?

Why didn’t the softy BBC interviewer ask him how much hardship MPs are enduring, with their 11% pay rise on the horizon? When are they going to lose their gold-plated pensions?

          It costs £10,000 on each side to settle a minor dispute between husband and wife in the family courts. One side normally gets legal aid.

          It is a money making scam of epic proportions, pure and simple.

          The legal profession have been scamming the public since medieval times and the whole thing needs to be radically revised.

            How about we start by stringing up every tenth one we come across – unless they can properly/convincingly justify the necessity of charging 500 quid an hour to tell us something most of us thought was the case in the first place.

    George Nobsore has written a projectile vomit-inducing appeal for Timothy Yeo MP to be allowed to retain his seat in the House of Commons. In the letter, Britain’s No Two Executive member describes Yeo as a “politician of principle” and someone who is “experienced, conscientious, thoughtful, loyal and steady under fire.” Writing to Yeo personally, he tells this sleazy, verminous man, “It would be a real loss to the House of Commons if you were forced to stand down when you still have so much to contribute. The Conservative Party at Westminster would be weaker without you.”

    So a fully independent committee with no outside political influence decided to award an MBE to Cameron’s barber, according to the government? Perhaps the committee just happens, coincidentally, to be made up exclusively of barbers.

      It is a sad state of affairs when we are expected to regard the recipients of these awards as “honoured” when it is well nigh impossible to think of anything they might have done to warrant them. There are few (if any) surgeons, physicians, members of the emergency/rescue services or voluntary workers sitting in the lords. Instead the house is stuffed to the rafters with failed and/or disgraced politicians, party donors and those who have paid for their titles. The whole system has become so debased that the medals are now as sought after as the plastic “gifts” to be found in cereal packets.

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
