Attack Dog Holiday

John Rentoul has been analysing the Miliband mantra to make PMQs all nice and fluffy:

“But something had changed. If I had been more observant, I would have noticed that Michael Dugher, the Labour noise machine, was not sitting in his usual place on the steps of the gangway next to the opposition front bench.”

If he had been more observant, Rentoul would have noticed that Michael Dugher has been Tweeting about being in Israel all week.

    Before Xmas Bercow stopped being so blatantly on the side of Labour. Maybe this had something to do with it.

    Jеwish background leader, Dougher in Israel, party for the muzzies.

    Will it ever work?

    Maybe they have all recognised that the enemy (the public) have had enough of all of them.

    Great to see this lot swept away – Blue, Yellow and Red.

    Nice dash of purple methinks.

      This might explain the sudden upsurge in large orders for bog rolls
      by Cons/LieLabor/LebDims alliance as they suddenly realise the
      writing on the wall is going tobe very serious for all of them…….

      And its long overdue….

          Would keep that powder dry until after the Euro Elections, 2014.

          And the inevitable 2014 by-elections.

          They’ll probably win the Euro elections. If they can do that then winning any other election is not impossible. Just because you want to believe something does not make it true. A perennial problem of socialists.


          • Rickytshirt says:

            p.s. Calling people’s comments stupid whilst writing like an eight year old is not the most convincing way of putting forward an argument.


          • The most amusing claim ever says:

            Not impossible BUT unlikely. Let’s examine why UKIP is doing well. It’s purely on the matter of immigration and EU interfering in a raft of “sovereign” matters that the British people feel should be under the control of their own elected Parliament at Westminster. It’s NOT a vote for UKIP but a vote AGAINST the EU.

            UKIP WILL indeed top the poll at May’s European Elections mainly because disgruntled Tories want to send a message to Cameron and they may indeed also get some successes at local elections BUT the majority know that outside of Farage they are just a “one trick pony” and that it’s unlikely even Farage will get elected if he were to stand in General Election(By-Election possibly as its normally a repository for the protest vote…people know they can vote in the knowledge that it will not affect the government)

            Many many Tories will hold their nose in May 2015 and vote for Cameron when faced with Miliband as the alternative. I accept some won’t but all that will achieve is to split the Tory vote and allow Labour in by default BUT the choice and risk is theirs(and yours.)

            However bear in mind that if Miliband and Labour are elected in May 2015 or form a coalition with LibDems there will NEVER be a EU referendum nor an attempt to renegotiate powers back to UK from EU. It’s as simple as that


          • Vote for us or the other EU stooges will get in says:

            As if your Tory party is ever going to allow an honest and binding referendum in Europe.

            There will NEVER be a EU referendum so long as the cosy status quo in Westminster continues to exists. Full stop.

          Once upon a time Labour had no MPs either. My Grand parents were born before it was even created. I wonder what they said at the time?

          Yet 24 years later Labour was in power.

          In this case they do not need power they just need enough to upset the cart. It is called Democracy. When the Tories realise they are doomed, they will take the necessary steps. (This means actual steps not false promises) I just hope they are not too late.


        • 84
          Mr Potato Head says:

          But UKIP does have MEPS and the EU (and its MEPs) account for most of our laws and regulations. What you say is like a councillor saying that x party is irrelevant because it has no local councillors. Saying that UKIP have no power is pure ignorance.

          John Bellingham says:

          The Lib-Dems, who, apart from maybe two sane members, represent state-funded sodomy, tits out in the commons chamber, less democracy, more EU control, less free speech, more taxes, less freedom and the “understanding and compassion” for their own members who steal money or pervert the course of justice–hold the balance of power in the current Parliament. For most of my life the Lib-Dems and their predecessors could not fill a taxi with their MPs and only ever had a significant number of MPs when voters were totally teeded off with the alternatives; it is hard to find anyone who voted for the Lib-Dems because of their policies, but plenty who voted because of who they were not.
          In a re-run of the 2010 election with the Lib-Dem vote exchanged for a UKIP vote could easily give UKIP a taxi-full of MPs who, with like-minded Unionists and conservatives could very well hold the balance of power.
          Once in Parliament–they would no longer be fruit cakes.

          Democracy is highly overrated says:

          Never underestimate just how stupid the voting public can be. Labour won 3 times with Blair at the helm.

    Ippikin says:

    The trouble with Miliband, as ever is that he simply has nothing to say that is of any interest or even relevance.
    Incidentally, his nose seems to have taken an ever greater leap forward, downward and indeed sideways.
    Does it have a life of its own?

        He would have visited some of the other countries in the area but was put off by all the trash.

        Incidentally, you’d think Chuka, being a socialist and aware of socialism’s very dodgy eugenicist roots, would be more careful of using words like ‘trash’ to describe people.

    “Tony Abbott issues defiant defence of secrecy over asylum seekers
    ‘The point is to stop the boats’, says Australia’s PM, after reports that the navy is towing vessels back to Indonesia”

    A Prime Minister with backbone eh?

      We can’t get Abbott here because he has no visa .

      Podiceps says:

      That was the poor wee fake Tachybaptus, of course. But it raises a point.

      If Abbott wanted to deter immigrants, why would he keep it secret that he was towing back the boats? He should be bellowing about it for all to hear and heed.


      • 98
        Lance Corporal Bill Bloggs (retired) says:

        Abbott could just force those boats to turn back and let them sink.

        He is showing his humanitarian side by making sure they get back to where they came from safe and sound .

        These Australians are all heart.

      There has been a funny aroma around the Royal Courts for several weeks now.

      As usual no one ” knows nothing” but the place abounds with unfunded pension deficits.
