    Maxxed-out Clifford says:

    There was anger among some locals, including the deputy mayoress of the Windsor and Maidenhead, Margaret Lenton, who accused the opposition leader of seeking a photo opportunity and blocking volunteers from doing their work of rescuing people from rising waters.

    As Miliband gave an interview to Sky News from the school hall, Lento called out: “You people get out,” and Miliband and his entourage were ushered away.

    “I am really angry,” Lenton told the Guardian. “What is he doing here? Where have they been all this time? He was standing in the middle of a working organisation where we are trying to get people rescued. He turns up for a photo opportunity when we are now down to hard cases of rescuing old and vulnerable people.”

    The Tory party: an organisation built on tears, lies and the broken promises of generations of politicans who all banded together in the hope of making it big at the expense of the British public they have betrayed.

    Bill Quango MP/5 says:

    This government is finally prepared to everything that it can to reduce the rising tide of negative headlines. Let us spare no expense. Now that we know that this natural disaster, that occurred to a handful of farmers on a flood plain, to which a platitude and sympathetic expression should normally suffice, might now effect Conservative voters, no stone will be let undredged.

    Let me reassure the people of Tory voting areas that the tepid response that we gave to predominantly Lib Dem areas will now be more robust.
    The government would like to reassure hard working stockbrokers that we felt that the Liberal areas were in need of a good wash to get the smelly hippies to realise dancing round windmills won’t stop the rain.

    But now the floods have reached proper areas where normal people live, drastic action will be taken.

    So, the South West suffers devastating flooding, but no-one goes near them for ages. The Home Counties suffers a similar fate and lo, the place is awash with politicians in their wellies promising unlimited funding for the clean-up. Anyway, does this rush to step in with state-funded assistance not go against everything the Tories hold dear? What happened to their much-touted model of self-reliance? Surely Dave’s heart should be gladdened by the sight of all those volunteers helping their local communities in the absence of trained professionals?

    Seems Liebour did a great job with it’s whitewash or is it just a short memory problem, if the civil service wasn’t full off Liebour deadbeats and the EA was run by a real person not a failed Liebour politician then things may or may not have been different, the “welfare” reform was used by Liebour for it’s own purposes like voting opportunities, some people need a kickup the arse publicly to get the to do somthing, well done to the lady.

    The Swedish government should return the lands stolen by Minuit from the Delaware and Susquehannocks tribes in 1638. We only sold them an area marked by “six trees” – the rest of the land occupied by the Swedes was stolen. All subsequent claims to our land by the Dutch, British and United States governments are based on fraud.

    To be fair Ed Miliband and the Labour front bench should have went down with a load of supplies, you don’t just turn up somewhere suffering a catastrophic event empty handed and expect everyone to be happy to see you.

    If he had the right PR handlers he would have been photographed handing out fresh water and bread and medical supplies to people and digging a trench for sandbags and looking like a man of the people and like he actually cares instead of getting embarrassingly thrown out and looking like a wally.

    I was wondering what the difference is between George Bush and David Cameron. I mean, they are both self serving scumbags with superiority complexes, Bush is a white supremacist and Cameron is a class supremacist.

    Both have no principles and are image obsessed, both only acted long after a disaster happened because they were worried they were starting to look bad not because they genuinely wanted to help people in distress.

    Bush served corporate interests and Cameron also places corporate interests ahead of the national interest.

    Both are incredibly lazy individuals.

    So I was struggling to come up with a significant difference between the two useless articles, and then it struck me……

    Bush served two terms.

    They can now react to the situation despite the fact more should have been done during the years of terror and Brown should not have stopped funding in 2003.

    This is what a good government does and the money will come forth and on this occasion despite what you rabid left wing zealots think its there and available.

    The situation cannot be changed in just 3 years but the reaction to years of mismanagement by the previous THREE TERM GOVERNMENT can. That’s what we are doing and even if they have to borrow more at least its for a genuine reason and not some left wing fancy idea where the money is pissed up against a wall and never seen again

    and pissed on the Siegfried line. Fact

    So the position is my view is quite apt and would have certainly have appealed to the sense of humour of the best PM we have ever had.

    Before anyone says he hid behind the lines he stated he wanted to be at DDay. King George V said tried to talk him out of it but could not. The king then said that as Winston was going then he therefore had to go also. Churchill would hear none of it as the King could have been killed. To which the King said well Winston, ”

    I have a replacement in the wings…you do not.”

    Churchill reluctantly remained in London and became the greatest of Britain’s.

    The Getty Villa is at 17985 Pacific Coast Highway, Pacific Palisades. I have been there and it is beautiful. The only trouble is that it is stuffed inside and outside with both Greek and Roman treasures. They were all paid for. There are no allegations of theft.

    Notwithstanding that, one may presume, using the same argument, that these should all be returned too.

    This is just a start and I shall refer to some more treasures, in California and the USA, in a while.

    Casual Observer 6 says:

    Whilst what you say is very likely true, the problem with these situations is that there is reality, and there is perception and mood.

    The reality is that right now nothing can be done. Infinite amounts of money will not fix the problem immediately. All that can happen is to wait for nature to take its course and then ensure that the preventive practices which had been stopped by the EA under previous Labour government and not resumed under the coalition are restarted tout suite. Will take a few years to fix, but next year the risk should be lower.

    Cameron is fully culpable as he has totally mis-managed things in particular over the past 5 months or so: Those things include his own image.

    Quick run down – and these are concerns from the right not the left:

    i) Syr!a – rush to war
    ii) Pleb Gate / Failure on EU Referendum / messing about with immigration bill / R’omania + B’ulgaria immigration / not handling the EU properly.
    iii) A lot of shit in December, topped off with a photo op to sell help to buy with an estate agent, and global warming lies being fully outed.
    iv) More shit throughout January, culminating in the floods, which brings us to now.

    If Cameron was really on top of things and deserving of respect as a regular person, let alone a leader, then he would have perhaps done something to change his tack after the Syr!a debacle.

    He hasn’t.

    He has already lost to UKIP, and now it is just a waiting game until he goes.

    His real problem is that he has pushed things so far that even if he did produce a magic wand and fix everything overnight (which is impossible, in his defence), that still would not change the situation he is in now, or repair his political / personal credibility in the eyes of the country.

    Miliband and Clegg are really not that far behind him – Miliband’s only defence is that he is not in office at present. However, in opposition, he did worst than fuck all by not highlighting the problem.

    UKIP in the mean time are gaining much more support right now.

    Wikipedia says:

    Charles De Gaulle insisted that a brand new french franc be issued BEFORE the invasion and that only that money, issued by him, would be acceptable by any allied troops in France.
    Naturally Britain would print the money at our expense and de Gaulle would set the exchange rate.

    All this was just a few days before the invasion. If the demands were not met then French troops could not participate in D-Day.

    Winston told him to get stuffed.

    During the general conversation which followed with those present, de Gaulle was involved in an angry exchange with the Labour minister, Ernest Bevin, and, raising his concerns about the validity of the new currency to be circulated by the Allies after the liberation, de Gaulle commented scornfully, “go and wage war with your false money”. De Gaulle was much concerned that an American takeover of the French administration would just provoke a communist uprising.

    Churchill then also lost his temper, saying that Britain could not act separately from America, and that under the circumstances, if they had to choose between France and the U.S., Britain would always choose the latter. De Gaulle replied that he realised that this would always be the case. The next day, de Gaulle refused to address the French nation because the script again made no mention of his being the legitimate interim ruler of France. It instructed the French people to obey Allied military authorities until elections could be held, and so the row continued, with de Gaulle calling Churchill a “gangster”. Churchill in turn accused the general of treason in the height of battle, and demanded he be flown back to Algiers “in chains if necessary”.

    Only 3 men had any knowledge of what is going on in the history of climate/weather.

    1. Milankovic – mathematician who showed the correlation of the ice ages/warm periods with the cycles of orbital dynamics of the earth-moon-sun system (i.e. variations in the earth’s axial tilt and its precession every 26000 years and the longer term precession of the earth’s elliptical orbit.)

    2. Maunder – solar astronomer who noted the correlation of the little ice age in the 17th century with the complete lack of sunspots during the period. The so called Maunder minimum.

    3. Lorentz – mathematical physicist who showed that the equations used by weather forecasters to model the weather are chaotic, meaning that a infinitesimal error in the initial conditions mean that no model no matter how powerful the computer its run on or how accurately you measure the initial conditions (pressure,temperature etc.) can predict the weather with any accuracy beyond about 14 days.

    I feel that you may be over-emphasising the impact of the help to buy fiasco, but otherwise, this is a fair summary.

    This, as often as not, in a British context, involves trying to fix a foreign policy problem in a spectacular way, which frequently means threatening force.

    Casual Observer 6 says:

    The only safe thing about Dave is that he errs on the side of doing nothing.

    Mentioned the Estate Agent Photo shoot as that is perhaps a factor in why he has been camera shy, and unwilling to go out in public before the camera’s. I suspect that Dave generally only does ‘rigged’ photo ops.

    He also got chased off in Kent shortly after for being useless on a photo op there when they had some flooding.

    If he had gone out when the problem became apparent, taken a bit of flak, but stood strong and showed he was with the people – maybe take direct control of the Environment Agency problem and make that an organization to sort out before he leaves office, he could have turned all that around.

    It is the apparent lack of interest, and the apparent lack of motivation to get to grips with real problems that are alienating the public.

    In a way he is doing the UK public a favor. It is better if they become less dependent on central government and more self reliant, much needed if government is going to be reduced in size.

    The problem he has if this is his deeper thinking (which I do seriously doubt) is that people have paid for government to do certain things, and are now finding out rather directly that they have been lied to. And then Dave follows through with a clear second lie about climate change.

    Other than the EU b/s – the flooding at present is all about pushing up insurance premiums.

    People should be preparing for another major stock market drop when the insurance companies have to free up capital to cover the claims which will be coming there way over the next few months.

    That could derail the myth of recovery which has been peddled recently.

    Hence the vacuum in British politics created by discredited Labour/Libdem/”modern” Tory parties just in the game to see how much they milk the system

    And the vacuun being – sort of – filled by UKIP

    But UKIP has come 20 years too late and will never be strong enough to win in FPTP

    So the future is rather depressing unless there is a real revolution which seems difficult…

    Suspicion should have been aroused immediatey a Labour Government starts blowing money on the armed services , since when have they bothered in the past .
    These two carriers served a double purpose, firstly as a ‘make-work’ for Browns constituency ,and secondly to place a time bomb in the defence budget that could only be de -fused by embarking on massive cuts, thus leaving the services a toothless shadow of their Former selves.
    Surely these are sufficient grounds to cancel this project and tell the contractors tough luck .

    Has the self-styled TaxPayers’ Alliance condemned Dave “money is no object” Cameron? Usually fast to attack public spending.

    Seems the Somerset Levels as far as the media is concerned has had it 24hours of news, so now they are up and down by the Thames, why bother, just go onto the English Heritage site, Britain from the air and you can look at the 1947 floods along the Thames, that’s the trouble with repeats, much the same.

    Scargill obtained 98% agreement during negotiations with the then government, but STILL went ahead with the strikes, thus leaving the pits to stand, and therefore become unworkable.

    His lords and masters didn’t want the UK to be self sufficient.

    Obviously. There wouldn’t be any free oxygen (how weird that we have such a reactive gas wandering about in the atmosphere) without cyanobacteria.

    But he did work out why the earth isn’t 20C colder, and for that you have to give him credit.

    Note that he thought a warmer world would be GOOD.

    Having looked after their own self-interest, it’s a shame the Tories did not give the same consideration when allowing homes to be built on Flood Plains. Is not that Sucking Fensible?

    But what about the private health firms that, having given money to the Tory Party, have been rewarded with £1.5 billion worth of NHS contracts?

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.”
