      I met a bloke last year, highly qualified civil engineer, who is currently cleaning big balls of fatty sh1te out of London sewers. He dresses up like a spaceman and pokes a big high-tech stick around in the drains under Soho and Westminster–innured to all kinds of the worst forms of sh1t–he is the man to probe a Lib-Dem.

    Blair’s was “What is important is”. Brown’s was “Because it’s the right thing to do”.

    Miliwank’s is ever changing because the economy keeps proving him wrong. It started with “too far too fast” for about two years, then became “double dip” for a year, then it became “flatlining” for another year, and now he’s got “cost of living crisis” to last him till the election and even that’s already being proven wrong. Pretty soon he’ll just go with “what is important is the right thing to do”.

    No honour in murder says:

    The news about that 17 year old girl who went missing two weeks ago has gone very quiet. Maybe the cops are reluctant to investigate the elephant in the room, that she’s been murdered by those close to her in an honour killing. If they pursue that line, Owen Jones and gang will be up in arms and calling the police racist for daring to even consider such an Islamaphobic possibility. Meanwhile, she’s still missing and the public are still expected to buy the story that she disappeared while putting out the rubbish.

      Casual Observer 5 says:

      The race card is an excellent shield for organized crime gangs and other offenders to hide behind.

      The only reason the police go along with this is because the bribe money arrives on time, and they really cannot be arsed with getting involved with enrichment crime as long as it happens off the manor, so to speak.

The producer apparently left the room feeling sick after seeing the video. What for?

Aah, those were the days.

            Our EU membership provides big business with an endless supply of cheap disposable labour, allowing big business to make huge profits (and pay us large backhanders).

          A young gold-digger was walking along the beach at St Tropez, looking for a rich future husband.

          She came across a young man on a large yacht that looked quite expensive. “Hello,” said the gold-digger, “how did you afford an expensive yacht like that?”

          “Well,” replied the man, “I have a senior job at an investment bank. I bought this yacht with one of my million pound bonuses.”

          Suddenly, the gold-digger spied a man on an even bigger and more expensive yacht. She sauntered over. “Hello,” said the gold-digger, “how did you afford an expensive yacht like that?”

          “Well,” replied the man, “I founded an Internet company which was bought by Google for ten billion dollars. I bought this yacht with some of the money.”

          The gold-digger was tempted but then she spied a man on an even bigger and more expensive yacht – the most expensive yacht in St Tropez. She sauntered over.

          “Hello,” said the gold-digger, “how did you afford an expensive yacht like that?”

          “Well,” replied the man, “I was a florist when Princess Diana died.”

    “The scriptures make it abundantly clear that a Christian nation that abandons its faith and acts contrary to the Gospel (and in naked breach of a coronation oath) will be beset by natural disasters such as storms, disease, pestilence and war. I wrote to David Cameron in April 2012 to warn him that disasters would accompany the passage of his same-sex marriage bill. But he went ahead despite a 600,000-signature petition by concerned Christians and more than half of his own parliamentary party saying that he should not do so. It is his fault that large swaths of the nation have been afflicted by storms and floods. He has arrogantly acted against the Gospel that once made Britain ‘great’ and the lesson surely to be learned is that no man or men, however powerful, can mess with Almighty God with impunity and get away with it for everything a nation does is weighed on the scaled of divine approval or disapproval.”

      Code Orange...crisis to break Monday says:

      Lord Carlile was interviewed on BBC News Channel and(I paraphrase) cannot understand Mr Alexander’s view and it is apparent that both he and Mr Clegg do not wish to abide by the legal maxim on which the Liberal Party and this country are founded…..that a man is innocent until PROVEN guilty and the evidence is simply not there on the lowest bar set let alone the requirement of the courts….oh dear….doesn’t look good…..

      • 196

        If you study the life and career of Mr Carlile, you will note that he has no experience r of making judicial decisions. He’s been a paid advocate all his life: he is no JUDGE of anything.

        He has a big gob on many legal topics, but was basically the wrong man for this job.

          Blowing Whistles says:

          And I had the cheek to nominate Carlile as legal nobhead of the week. I am grateful that others are doing some reasarch about the ‘paid advocate’. He has been constantly ‘wheeled out’ year after year to give an impression or three to topics which are toxic and need silencing.

          “Total Hypocrisy”

          So Lord Carlile is defending Lord Rennard to the hilt and threatening to sue all and sundry if they do not back down about the allegations about sexual misconduct by Lord Rennard. e.g. See the msm and the net over the past week.

          Howwww..ever…

          Lord Carlile is also known (msm and net) to have been wheeled out to “attack” [the complete OPPOSITE of the Rennard issue) J Assan.ge over allegations of his sexual misconduct in Sweden – on page 23 of the Mail On Sunday – published on August 19th 2012 and mentioned on here on the same day

    Rayner Goddard, Lord Goddard (1877 – 1971) was Lord Chief Justice of England from 1946 to 1958. He was the first Lord Chief Justice to be appointed by a Labour government and was known as Justice in a jiffy because he once dismissed six appeals in one hour.

    He ordered Derek Bentley to be hung without observing due process. Bentley was later acquitted – posthumously. This must have been immensely comforting to Bentley.

    It is a matter of record that Lord Goddard sentenced to death many men and he would always bring into the court a spare pair of trousers because, in the course of sentencing, he used to experience an orgasm and ejaculate into the ones he was wearing. He would also ejaculate upon sentencing a whipping, in those days of corporal punishment.

    I thought this was fanciful when I first heard about it, being young, but found out later that it was true.

    A reminder; he was appointed by a Labour government. If anyone wonders where this deviancy comes from, which seems to affect so many from the left, one may bear in mind that it has a long pedigree.

    Those who taunt us here, for various purposes, might like to be reminded of this judge.

      Your bold of Labour government I know is to make a point to the less able on here but degeneracy is obviously not confined to a particular party.Possibly the LibDems hold that gold medal at the moment.

        @UH and Wr (below)

        Degeneracy affects all quarters of political opinion. Tried to leave enough scope for that to be read into the situation. It just seems to affect the left more, IMO.

        The LibDems are partly composed of the left (Social Democratic Party).

        Of course, I was not present at these eruptions, thank God. My reaction, as stated, was the same as yours. But it was reported in the Sunday Times in the late 60s/early 70s.

        My reason for posting this is that we have witnessed some pretty odious comments today, and last night, by people who think they are no longer bound by libel.

        Unless I am posting ironically, I always check my facts first over such matters, as far as it is possible so to do. How many others bother?

        It’s not true.

        Lord Goddard didn’t hang many people.

        The Bentley case went to appeal – execution was decided upon by the Home Secretary.

        The “ejaculation” story is hearsay from a former employee.

          Lord Goddard didn’t hang many people…

          Do me a favour!

          So sorry you find the facts so inconvenient.

          Goddard only got the gig as Hartley Shawcross, another of your socialist judges, was unwilling to accept it.


          It was the law lords of the early nineteenth century who blocked Romilly’s Bill to abolish the death penalty for shoplifting; and it was the law lords of the mid-twentieth century who blocked Silverman’s Bill for abolishing the death penalty altogether.

          Chief among the former was Chief Justice Lord Ellenborough; and among the latter was Lord Goddard, whom posterity may well regard as the Ellenborough of his times…

          Goddard was the archetypical hanging judge.

            I always prefer to pursue civil discourse as I am only interested in truth (inasmuch as it exists at all – and I think it does! My opinion, clearly.)

            It may be too much to expect of anyone that we will ever end up in complete agreement. If the whole world agreed on everything, it would be so boring. But I also hope that we can engage on a civilised basis and simply recognise our differences, where they are beyond reconciliation.

          • @Ailurophile

            Really do appreciate your valuable contributions here.

            It is important that we distinguish between two (at least) different aspects arising.

            * Firstly, the law of the land as it exists at the time.

            * Secondly, the vicarious, perverted and abnormal reactions of those who uphold the law.

            I knew when I posted my remark that it might attract some discussion. It was meant to. Your observations of Lord Bridge are quite correct BTW, although he did have a great clarity of thinking in his state of error!

            My point was addressed to the second of the issues mentioned above as one cannot re-write the law after the event, alas.

            It is still possible to act within the law but in a completely abhorrent way.

    The Tories have turned the poor against each other. People on benefits, of any kind, are now the enemy. The fat cats have got away with the cream and are helping themselves to the entire dairy! But its the poorest and most vulnerable in society that have been made the scape goats. Whilst the Tories have waged war on the poor, the unemployed, the low paid and especially their pet hate group, the sick and disabled…. they have gone into battle with Brussels to fight for the right of the bankers to keep their great big fat obscene bonuses….

    The people of this country had better wake up, and fast. The NHS has been 70% privatised, but the service is once again being forced onto its knees by the Tories just as it was under Thatcher. Schools are once again being pummelled and the poorest and most vulnerable in society are being victimised and vilified by this government whilst those who actually caused this catastrophe have kept on laughing all the way to their nice fat bonuses. It makes me sick and ashamed of my own country and my fellow countrymen

      Labour's supporters are worthless retarded subhuman filth says:

      It was the poorest and most vulnerable in society who were most severely affected by Labour.

      “Labour sent out ‘search parties’ for immigrants to get them to come to the UK, Lord Mandelson has admitted.
      “In a stunning confirmation that the Blair and Brown governments deliberately engineered mass immigration, the former Cabinet Minister and spin doctor said New Labour sought out foreign workers.
      “He also conceded that the influx of arrivals meant the party’s traditional supporters are now unable to find work.”</b

      As for the “sick and disabled”, how many were left disabled by Labour’s illegal war in Iraq? We know half a million civilians died in Labour’s illegal war – do you have the figures on how many men, women and children were left maimed? 5 million, maybe?

      And then we’ve got the tens of thousands who were killed in NHS hospitals by indifferent staff, whilst Labour’s Andy Burnham did his best to cover it up.

      If you’re a complete fucking c*nt, vote Labour.

      Hypocritical Wanker Watch says:

      Define ‘vulnerable’.

      Under Labour, single white men, many ex-servicemen, were deemed not to be vulnerable and left to sleep rough in the streets. Did you complain then? I don’t recall anyone on the left saying anything much about that. They certainly didn’t do anything to change the law.

      Perhaps real criminals amongst us are those who promote equality and immigration. Why would socialists promote immigration knowing that it could only be an immediate drain on public services, and that by the time they had contributed, there wouldn’t be any public services left? Perhaps those shouting ‘racist’ and ‘fascist’ are not lefties (if not useful idiots), but right-wing libertarians!

      My dear Moussa

      I am so, so sorry for you that Kinnock did not win. Really. But he fluffed it, old son! It is no good complaining more than two decades after the event…

      Had he done so, you would have been happy but 56m (minus 1) would not have been. That figure includes Kinnock himself who got a nice sinecure in the EU earning telephone numbers, of which you may only dream.

      It is so nice and revealing of your kindly nature that you do not resent this of him one little bit whereas, if it had been an evil Tory, you would have been so up in arms!

      Mandelson, Blair, Brown. They all must be pissing in their boots over you. But you still remain loyal to the cause. Greater love hath no man etc.

      It is people like you who keep the cause going.

    “Unless the LORD builds the house the builders build in vain, Unless the LORD watches over the city the guards stand watch in vain”

    Why?

    • 357
      Podiceps says:

      It’s Psalm 127.

      If it is really in that pappy modern translation, it probably refers to Lord Rennard.

      The best English translation of the Psalms is the one by Miles Coverdale, which was used for chanting them in the Church of England before the rot set in. Here it is:

      1. Except the Lord build the house, their labour is but lost that build it.
      2. Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

      • 359
        A Voter says:

        Thanks. Yes, that is a better, more elegant rendition.

        Whichever psalm it is, I simply ask, why it is inscribed on the floor of the lobby if people who believe it (I happen to think they are probably wrong to do so) are to be excluded from public office.

          Worth noting that he was perfectly acceptable and not considered a fruitcake just one year ago when he was the treasurer of Henley Conservatives. His move to madness occurred when he resigned over Cameron’s bumsex marriage bill.

          Podiceps says:

          To answer your question seriously, if it’s part of the original decoration of the building it was put there by Pugin, who created the decorative scheme of the whole Palace of Westminster. Pugin was intensely religious and felt that everything he created was a work for God, and he may also have meant it as an admonition to those in the place that they should act rightly — in which case, sadly, it has not been followed.

          Pugin was a Catholic, and if the inscription was designed by him it’s probably in the clunky Latin of the Vulgate:
          1. Nisi Dominus aedificaverit domum in vanum laboraverunt qui aedificant eam. 2. Nisi Dominus custodierit civitatem frustra vigilavit qui custodit.

It is their prayer that good seed sown will produce a good harvest, that everything offensive to decency and hostile to peace will be expelled, and that the nation will incline its ear to those things which are lovely, pure and of good report and thus pursue the path of wisdom and virtue’.

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
