Another Political Appointee Stuffed in by the Tories

Another day and another government job stuffed with a political appointee. Yes,  those evil Tories are at it again, installing former Labour spinner Tom Kelly as the new non-executive director at the Department of Energy and Climate Change. A position Kelly can add to his public body-filled CV alongside Financial Services Authority comms chief and head of PR at Network Rail. Not to mention his career highlight of describing weapons inspector Dr David Kelly as a “Walter Mitty” character during his tenure at Number 10. The struggle takes many forms!

    It is not the political appointee who is stuffed – it’s US the great British public.

      Lord Stansted says:

      UKIP could well be a bunch of idiots and corrupt too. I don’t care, I’m voting for them. They can’t be any worse than the lot we have now. Voting UKIP is the only way left to register disgust for the corrupt, PR-wanking, thieving, hypocritical bastards than constitute the political class of this country.

          Why didn’t the Tories find out about his past instead of leaving it to UKIP, he had served his time in the UK

          • Winston says:

            The Tories knew about his past and then leaked it to the BBC to slander UKIP. Both the BBC and the Tories failed to tell us that he then re-joined the Conservative Party.

      Because Naevia breathes painfully,
      and has a severe cough,
      and often sputters out saliva on your breast,
      do you imagine,
      Bithynicus, that your fortune is already made?
      You are mistaken;
      Naevia is flirting,
      not dying.

    Ah! See says:

    The Church could do with a few spinners.

    A U.N. human rights committee has denounced the Vatican for adopting policies that allowed priests to r4pe and molest tens of thousands of children, and urged it to open its files on the p3dophiles and the churchmen who concealed their crimes.

    In a devastating report Wednesday, the U.N. committee also severely criticized the Holy See for its attitudes toward homosexuality, contraception and ab0rtion and urged it to review its policies to ensure children’s rights and their access to health care.

    The committee issued its recommendations after subjecting the Holy See to a daylong interrogation last month on its implementation of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, the main international treaty ensuring children’s rights.

      They’ve done the kid a favor.

      The child will learn more away from the useless school, but has just had a very good lesson in why voting UKIP is a good idea.

      Just who do these statist arseholes think they are, it is no business of anybody but the boys mother what goes into his lunchbox.
      Some blame must be accepted by the parents for not making this clear in the first place and they should have expressly forbidden these interfering twats from looking into their children’s lunches ,the confiscation of any legal item is theft.

    Big Bill Clinton says:

    When a new President goes into the White House all the political appointments of the previous administration leave.

    No one stays behind. No new administration wants insurgency fighters to snipe from open microphones or plant ‘whining’ letter bombs in newspapers.

    The old mob are out and the new mob are in.
    Dave should have rounded the labour traitors up day 1 and shipped them to Millionairbands offices and told them to find work there.

        Big Bill Clinton says:

        Not the pen pushers! Those useless administrators stay. Those assholes have to.

        I’m talking about the head of some useless charity or think tank that the former commander in chief gave a job to in return for their vote or a contribution or a ride on their wife.

        Those guys get the bum’s rush.
        Clear the filth out. If no other reason than to sell a whole load of favours to a load of new rattlesnakes.

        Its basic politics. You think Milimong is going to leave anyone except Chris Patten in place in 2015? He’s got union and party people who promised big and need jobs and status on Uncle Sam’s payroll.

      But David Cameron didn’t do that as he is a totally useless c’unt.

      As evidenced today at PMQ’s for the most part.

      He still has about 2 hours left in the public sector extended work day to justify his salary. Going off to ask the army to do the Environment Agencies job is not going to cut it.

    Whatever why I’m so so missing Tony. Because he is so so charming and his clothes are so good. He has such good body and he has really really good legs Butt… And he is slim tall and good skin. Pierce blue eyes which I love. Love his eyes. Also I love his power on the stage… and what else and what else and what else…

    I do so hope that this doesn’t tear the Blair household apart. One only wants the best for Tony …. like fook.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
