      You can imagine it, can’t you?

      They probably all gathered together one weekend, whilst Nick was in Brussels, and banged the shit out of every orifice she possessed. All the old favourites were there my Princess, there is probably a tape if you look far enough.

      Then they decided that she wasn’t much good for any purpose, tried some small boys who happened to be on hand instead (What we stand for explained), and then gave her marching orders along the lines: We have been thinking about your future and want you to get on in life. Have you thought of working for charity?

      Nick comes back and denies all knowledge, you know the form…

        Casual Observer 6 says:

        With the tawdry state of the Lib Dems regard for intimate relationships your imagery is not unwarranted.

        Thinking on a slightly higher plane (and as this is a Lib Dem story – that is a stretch), Nick Clegg’s behavior with respect what he was expecting his Director of Comms to deal with perhaps has violated her career in a most bloodied and brutal manner.

        If she hadn’t left, she would have been held to blame. Or – to my original point – is that what has just really happened ?


        • 139

          I have had a history of shocking myself sometimes over what I say and the imagery I use.

          Then, with increasingly shorter intervals, as time progresses, I discover that what I said fell some way short of the mark.

          The old expression known as Murphy’s First Corollary Law, If it can happen then it will, holds as true as it ever did.

          It is where it can happen which is the only variant. Every party is susceptible but, as you have alluded, the Lib Dems are Olympic holders of this territory.

          If that is accepted as a given (and I am sure some would contest it, albeit unconvincingly), then the role Director of Comms is doomed from the moment they decide to recruit for one.


          • Casual Observer 6 says:

            I think that even a hardened bastard like Al Campbell may meet his match with this role in the Lib Dems.

            It is a shame we will never find out, seeing as with the blood of the babies he helped to murder still clearly visible up to his elbows, he is perhaps too beyond the pale even for the Lib Dems to hire ?

            Will Clegg risk ridicule and possible criminal prosecution with another ‘I’m sorry’ video ?


          • Solipsism occurs with every politician, it is only the effects which differ. The party system must bear the lion’s share of the blame here.

            Labour are obsessed with controlling people, employing an egalitarian front, and thus enriching themselves. Blair is the extreme exponent of this.

            Lib Dems are obsessed with sexual deviation (to all comers: tell me this is not true!), employing a front which is based on some hazy notion of fairness, except that in the end it is just their fairness-to-self they are interested in.

            Conservatives support the work ethic but, somehow, they have allowed this to become an imprisoning situation rather than a liberating one – probably due to their feeling that they had to be like Blair in order to beat him.

            It is for this very reason that UKIP have become so spectacularly popular.

            We have yet to see, beneath all the breezy and spontaneous approach, how they will respect the truly traditional but carve off the sham totems that have been set up by all three parties over the years. It is too early for them to be talking about that yet. But its day will come. Maybe suddenly.


          • Casual Observer 6 says:

            I cannot think of anything which the Lib Dems have really achieved, other than Cables fire sale of the Royal Mail, beyond sexual deviation.

            Conservatives are still stuck in some odd funk. Maybe they have gone down the workhouse road to counter Labour, but as that path is counterproductive and stifles competition in the modern workplace it is an odd decision. Thatcher and the 80s administration had all of this down just right, the fruits of which were enjoyed in the first half of the 90s.

            UKIP will have a lot of tough decisions to make but provided they do not renege on the referendum question there should be no problem. If they do well in the Euro elections (as expected) then having a strong presence in Westminster will actually be in the countries interest.

            Having closer alignment between the state government and the EU Federal representation would help present a more unified face for the UK in Europe. The other member states have been able to take the p!ss in part by playing on the divisions within Westminster and between Westminster and Brussels.

            UKIP will need to call the referendum within one year of 2015 GE – and before that stimulate a proper formal public debate.

            Out of the EU is the way forward, but until that end is reached being stronger within the EU is an improvement as the UK exit should not be perceived as a defeat or a retreat.


          • Gooey Blob says:

            Don’t get your hopes up, Ukip’s best chance of a seat is in Labour’s heartlands. But if Ukippers vote Tory where Tories can win and Tories vote Ukip where Ukip might stand a chance at beating Labour, you never know. They may get a say in the next government. It all remains highly unlikely, however.


          • Casual Observer 6 says:

            Agreed GB – but it is better to think more positively about such an outcome.

            Strictly, no one knows at all what the exact outcome of 2015 will be, assuming it is in fact a free and fair election. That is the nature of elections.

            Being positive about the libertarian party on a libertarian blog shouldn’t be a bad thing. If the trend seen recently continues then there is the possibility of UKIP forming part of the coalition which is likely to emerge if they do not get a majority ;-)


          • Fly on the wall says:

            A free and fair election remains an impossibility until the boundaries are adjusted and postal voting is forbidden completely.

    Mirror following the sun story

    A veteran entertainer is to be ­arrested by police investigating the Jimmy Savile sex attack scandal.

    The comedian, who is a household name in his 70s, will be held in the next few days over allegations of sexual abuse.

    In a separate development, a second entertainer who was quizzed under caution in November on similar allegations, is also set to be formally arrested.

    The man, in his 80s, is believed to have written to one of his alleged ­victims to express regret.

    A source close to Scotland Yard’s Operation Yewtree inquiry said: “The latest big name to be ­arrested will be a real shocker to a lot of people. He’s not somebody you would have associated with this sort of thing. The other celebrity will be even more of a surprise.”

          R’ichard would probably be able to help with investigations as he was moving in the same circles at the time (as photographs show), but if he was directly involved or not is a whole different question.

          Whoever it was who wrote that letter expressing regret to a victim should be case closed as the apology will constitute an admission of guilt. Which should make it clear why L’ord R’ennard is not budging on that issue.

      “You have the right to go to another EU country and stay there for up to three months without any obligations and also without any rights to claim benefits during these three months. Up to six months, you can stay only if you really can prove that you are looking for a job actively in this other EU state. And afterwards you cannot stay unless you have the financial means to support yourself and you have comprehensive sickness insurance,” spokesperson for the European Commission Mina Andreeva told euronews.

      So – from the commission itself, the open borders policy for relocation in Europe is fundamentally different to the model in the US and is mislabeled such thing.

      That being that you do not have the right to go to another member state and become homeless, or access certain basic state provided services.

        “It’s like it is raining men in the Conservative Party.”

        Mr Gove responded by pointing out that he had not only appointed Baroness Morgan in the first place, but had also appointed women to other senior positions.

        He then hit back by reminding Ms Harman that the Conservatives had had a woman prime minister, and said the Labour Party were dominated by trade unions, such as Unite which he joked was “led by feminist hero Len McCluskey” and Paul Kenny from the GMB “who’s been getting in touch with his softer side over the weekend”.

      I don’t know why anybody bothers to listen to Labour as it is always opposite to what they say
      They are quite simply liars and supported to the nth degree then in their own and some others eyes makes it fact

      It remains lies


      • 301
        For REAL lying, look here says:

        Lie 1: Three days before the election, David Cameron: “Any cabinet minister . who comes to me and says ‘Here are my plans’ and they involve front-line reductions, they’ll be sent straight back to their department to go away and think again”.

        Lie 2: A month before the election, David Cameron: “Our plans involve cutting wasteful spending, Our plans don’t involve an increase in VAT.”

        Lie 3: The coalition agreement: “We will stop top-down reorganisation of the NHS.”

        Lie 4: The coalition agreement: We will guarantee that health spending increases in real terms.”

        Lie 5: Two months before the election, from David Cameron: “I wouldn’t change child benefit, I wouldn’t means test it. I don’t think that’s a good idea.”

        Lie 6: Michael Gove, just before the election: “Ed Balls keeps saying that we are committed to scrapping EMA. I have never said this. We won’t.”

        Lie7: Liam Fox: “a bigger army for a safer Britain”, but it now loses 7,000 soldiers.

        Lie 8: In October 2009 George Osborne said: Retail banks should stop paying out significant cash bonuses. A year later, he opposed an updated EU Capital Requirement Directive intended to limit them.
        In 2013 he took a plane to Europe in bid to block a Europe-wide cap on bankers’ bonuses

        Lie 9: David Cameron: “Yes, we back Sure Start. It’s a disgrace that Gordon Brown has been trying to frighten people about this.” Yet the government’s Early Intervention Grant means a reduction of £1.4 billion in the amount given to early intervention programmes. As a result,More than 400 Sure Start children’s centres have closed during the first two years of coalition government.

        Lie 10 No cuts in tax credits for families with an income of less than £50,000;

        Lie 11 prison for anyone carrying a knife;

        Lie 12 no cuts to the navy;

        Lie 13 keeping the child trust fund for the poorest third of families;

        Lie 14 no hospital closures;

        Lie 15 3000 more midwives since 2010 they’ve created 1000. Lowering the shortage from 6,000 to 5,000.

    The bleating Diane Abbott and her labour colleagues think that putting up the tax rate to 50p will not drive high earners/buisnesses/entrepreneurs away from the UK.
    This is not only hypocritical of labour, but shows how they are heading back to the 1970’s with their thinking. That was then but we are now global, labours target can and will move.
    Ummuna indicated that the 50p will only be temporary. Does that mean it will go even higher, 60p, 70p, 75p? Do not assume labour mean that the rate will drop.
