    Not as deceased as Clegg, whose rotting stench is hard to ignore, or Miliband who really stands no credible chance. With the whiff of power in the air, Ed Balls will take Miliband down one way or another.

    The only way is UKIP.

    Where are Tony Blair's Expenses says:

    This is why Cameron is finished and won’t win in 2015

    1. No boundary changes
    2. Corruption within the Postal voting system not resolved
    3. UKIP trending at ~ 15% in the polls; they cost the Tories 20 seats in 2010 with 3% of the vote.
    4. Pilgrims still in position actively campaigning against the Government of the day using taxpayers money
    5. Union education fund is still in place
    6. No TU reform allowing Crow and his mob hold us to ransom
    7. Tory constituency parties are disintegrating in protest at Cameron’s liberal policies
    8. The Tories will lose 7/8 seats along the route of HS2 to single issue candidates
    9. The Tories will lose one seat in Portsmouth due to shipbuilding being concentrated in Scotland
    10. No control of mass immigration
    11. Public spending still out of control and the national debt rising on a daily basis
    12. Human Rights Act still in place
    13. No referendum on Europe
    14. State control of the press introduced
    15. Cameron wanted to take us to war in Syria
    16. Gay Marriage
    17. The BBC is left wing and will act as Labour’s main election campaigner in 2015
    18. QE is destroying any savings people may have
    19. Cameron’s continued, unsubstantiated, support for Climate Change and general green issues.

    The moral compass of the LibDems
    1. Jeremy Thorpe – Pillow biting
    2. Cyril Smith – Little Boys
    3. Paddy Pants Down
    4. Charles Kennedy – drunk
    5. Mark Oaten – Don’t go there
    6. Lembit Opik – Little Girls
    7. Chris Huhne – Congenital liar and sexual pervert
    8. David Laws – Liar and thief
    9. Lord Reynard – Sexual pervert
    10. Chris Hancock – Sexual pervert
    11. Nick Clegg – Congenital liar, he claimed he hadn’t been told about Hancock and Reynard
    12. Jo Swinson : The new definition is hypocrisy for all her support for the LibDem women during the Reynard affair

    Casual Observer 5 says:

    If UKIP can make a dent in Labour’s majority there and come in second, that will scare the living proverbial out of them.

    Labour were on an 18.59% majority over the Conservatives in that ward at 2010 GE, with 44.14% of the vote.

    Would not expect UKIP to win, but if they can shave 10% off of Labour’s share of the vote and annihilate the Lib Dems, that would get the bookmakers at least revising their odds a bit for 2015.

    10. I thought that it was MIKE Hancock. Just being pedantic.

    9. Lord Reynard may or may not be a pervert. The issue is with the way it was handled. Why apologise when you are not allowed to see the charges, let alone the “evidence” against you? The party of “fairness” has managed to be completely unfair to everyone involved, managing to provide a negative result in a zero sum game. How the hell did they manage to do that? That QC that they hired doesn’t normally work in the Family Courts does he?

    7. Chris Huhne. Yes and yes, but all respect to him, he did manage to convert a lesbian. Nice to see that it isn’t all one way traffic.

  30. 30
    We are the losers says:

    Love to see UKIP win Wythenshawe but you would have to surgically remove the Liebour red button from their one braincell, so I don’t see how, coming second is just as good as coming last, getting even one UKIP MP would really kickstart the party.

  31. 31
    Anon says:

    I think it’s a very good list, too.

    I’d also add the failure to deal with MPs’ troughing their expenses, and Cameron’s decision to put David Laws back into government after Laws was caught stealing £40,000.

    (And I used to vote Labour (until the Iraq war) but will vote UKIP in 2015.)

    Casual Observer 5 says:

    It has been very interesting since pleb gate the other year.

    What will be fun to see is how the attempts to play this as a muddle through to placate the demands of the people continue to fail.

    The real upcoming issues – other than building sentiment against immigration and the EU – will be economic.

    In order of fun:

    i) Further collapse of the Eurozone economy and the Euro itself
    ii) What happens when there is an attempted bail-in using Eurozone depositors funds. ECB may well officially set negative interest rates in an attempt to ‘stimulate’ the flacid Eurozone economy.
    iii) H’SBC possible collapse and knock on: particularly for Eurozone banks.
    iv) US Fed raising rates and effect on UK ‘recovery’
    v) UK / Eurozone stock market collapse to erase ‘funny’ money attracted by relatively high BoE rate.
    vi) Deflation of UK housing bubble once UK interest rates start to rise. (Which they will do to stay ahead of US Fed rate.)

    The big point of interest is exactly how the communitarian dialectic which people describe as ‘crony capitalism’ unwinds in the UK. Early indications are that this will be very messy, and government is going to come out of it worst off.

    It is important that the people prevent government from curtailing civil liberties further in order to protect its own losing hand.

    Popcorn time.

  34. 34
    UKIP is a vote for Labour but Cameron only has himself to blame says:

    There is a tide in the affairs of men. Which, taken at the flood leads on to fortune says:

    It’s obvious watching Nigel Mills on Sunday Politics that he is quite prepared to see Immigration Bill crash to defeat on Thursday unless Cameron agrees to his amendment to re-introduce restrictions on Roumanian and Bulgarian migrants. Cameron however can’t concede that because it would be illegal under the Treaty of Rome and against the accession treaties so either way Cameron is shafted

  40. 40
    Mr Nobody says:

    Ukip’s best chance of seats probably comes in Labour heartlands where the Tories have no chance but tactical voting might remove a Labour MP. Where the Tories are incumbent or have a chance of taking the seat it’s counter-productive to vote Ukip.

    Let’s see what happens when Toby Young sets up his Tory/Ukip tactical voting website. That should be interesting…

  41. 41
    Casual Observer 5 says:

    The further problem for Cameron is that by understanding EU law in this way he is forced to admit that sovereignty has been conceded.

    No one in the country vote or agreed to that, irrespective of it being Cameron or Brown who was actually responsible for the situation.

    Cameron can assert the sovereignty of the UK quite easily by agreeing and then see how the bill does.

    If Europe has a problem with that, we can discuss it on the fields at Flanders if necessary.

  42. 42
    Mr Nobody says:

    This is why Labour will win fewer seats in 2015 than they did in 2010

    The tories have consistently dominated the narrative about the last government’s spending. Let”s not forget Cameron committed himself to matching all of Labour’s spending plans pre-crash. It’s total hypocrisy, and Labour should have the courage of their convictions to stand up to it.

    As for the 50p tax rate, we know it brings in revenues and we know the Tories’ figures were skewed by people delaying their massive bonuses until after the rate was cut.

    Anyway, Cameron talks about fairness in relation to benefits but that doesn’t seem to apply to tax rates – how is it fair that people earning over £150,000 have got a tax cut when we are attempting to reduce the deficit?

    Looking at the 2010 GE (and not adjusting for subsequent by-elections) there are 189 seats where the winning party has a 10% or less majority.

    The breakdown of totals is thus:

    Con: 83
    Lab: 79
    LD : 27

    – Trying to figure out what set the m’0D B’ot off with the constituency / MP list…

    Tax avoidance (as opposed to tax evasion) is legal.

    If you are sharp enough to make money it follows that you will always find ways to minimize any tax regime as otherwise you would not have been smart enough to have made the money in the first place.

    Just tax each and every pound earned at 15% and cut all the subsidies and exemptions for Wind farms and forests in Scotland etc.

    Then people could concentrate simply on making money.

    Why should any individual or corporation be expected to pay more tax than they are obliged to. Tax avoidance is a perfectly normal and LEGAL way to reduce costs and increase profitability.

    There’s no end of other costs you could add in. I just thought that the cost of NHS provision is one that applied to all immigrants and is a really “in yer face” indisputable reason why mass immigration is bad for Britain.It applies even to those Poles that bleat “But we are good people! We pay taxes!”

    By the way, the cost of the NHS doubled between 2003 and 2013.

    Labour deregulated incorrectly. They were told in 1997 the errors of their ways but ignored this
    See Peter Lilleys speech and then umpteen warnings from 2001 onwards when they departed from previous a tory plans and let rip.

    No this is Labours fault entirely and the tired old argument that its the Tories wot dun it is bollox. The economy was in serious serious trouble by 2006 as a result of the Labour spending. We were the weakest positioned of the EU when going into the recession. Since the Tories have taken over we are now the strongest growth in the EU

    Because when the auditors actually looked at what Labour had actually done the loss to the GDP over the 13 years of terror was much more at 7% and not as Brown stated. It was worse all around with rampant inflation probably close to 12 million unemployed or on “unable to get off the arses and do a days work” benefits.

    Labour why would you?

    The idea is horrific.

    Remember when you buy a house the income you used to buy it was already taxed, and you paid stamp duty. Then they expect you to pay a tax for a property you continue to own.

    Imagine this taken to its extreme. Anything you already own could be used as an excuse to tax you. They could do it as an estimate “We estimate than within your home you have £50,000 of fixed assets that you should pay tax on at 10%. If you consider that the estimate is too high, please use our on-line appeals process”.

    Once again this is Communism by the back door. Trying to tax accrued wealth. Achieving Communism without a revolution.

    Nevertheless he’s right.

    Where is the legislation to ensure bankers are competent and not negligent with other people’s money?

    As far as I’m concerned it is up to the shareholders of a bank to determine how much bonus a banker gets paid – no business of the rest of us, just buy some shares if you want a say. But it is the business of all of us to make sure bankers, indeed all people in senior positions, are competent and not negligent.

    I’d venture to suggest that politicians say whatever they want to win votes and know full well their manifesto means nothing?

    I’d venture to suggest this is true of all political parties?

    Thus you are forced to look at actual past behaviour rather than promises. In the case of Labour it’s easy. Look at their history and you will see they always fuck everything up.

    “As for the 50p tax rate, we know it brings in revenues and we know the Tories’ figures were skewed by people delaying their massive bonuses until after the rate was cut.”

    Meanwhile all those taxes raised by government are spent on giving every civil ‘servant’ (sic) a brand new iPad thus ensuring it’s price stays well above it’s real value, as always happens when the govt chequebook is opened.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
