Clegg: Cameron “Spineless”
DPM Claims PM Only Cares ‘How It Will Play’

Guido revealed what went on inside a tense recent meeting of LibDem MPs in yesterday’s Sun column. Clegg defended himself against allegations it had been “easy for him” in government, quipping “If I’d been a Tory it would have been easy.”

One crowd-pleasing line stood out: Clegg calling Cameron “spineless” and saying that while he used his Liberal values as guidance, the PM merely asks “how’s this going to play?”

Something that Tory backbenchers might find themselves in rare agreement with Clegg over.

Expect more public airing of dirty laundry as the Coalition’s divorce day draws nearer.

          Politics is the Art of the Possible. Understanding this prevents you from, for instance, promising free university tuition when there’s No Money Left. The Art of The Possible also includes cuddling LibDems close to remain in power after totally fucking up a slam-dunk election. The execrable Dave understands this. As such, he is the least offensive and most rational of the three turds in the cess pit.

      There should be an election on 31st March 2014. I haven’t looked up the day for it does not matter a f*** which it is if not a Thursday.

      This will give:-
      UKIP time enough to campaign, while not giving time enough for the LiBLabCoNazis to smear all the UKIP candidates for any possible previous statements of fact about the other three (which is to say: Nazi) parties, or for statements of truth about “modern popular culture and habits”.

      It also will give the Police time to pre-arrest and remand into custody all “Labour supporters and canvassers”. This means that no “postal votes” will be cast at all anywhere. As a result, “Labour” will lose all its deposits in “cities” (whether vibrant or otherwise) with large “diverse” populations, which is to say: most of them.

      There will be a straight fight between the Tories, who try to smear UKIP as old white fascist golf-playing xenophobe blazer-wearing right-wing swivel-eyed homophobic loons, and UKIP who are trying to tell the truth about the other three main Nazi parties which are in government right now. UKIP would probably have to raid the Nazis’ bins in the night, so as to get “Levesons” to wave at them, like Maria Miller did to someone or other.

      I expect fullly that most LibDemNazi voters will side with the Tories – the party that they see as less-un-Nazi than UKIP. There won’t be any point in voting Labour, as ideally the Police will have “put certain impediments in the way of their candidates standing”.

      You see, this is the entire point of democracy: it means in fact “the orderly appointment and dismissal of governments”.

      All that is needed is the “right mechanisms in place” to ensure that the correct government is always appointed.

    Feb. 17 (Bloomberg) –- When Ayo answered a knock at his door one evening last month, four Nigerian secret service officers barged in and found gay pornography on one of the phones and laptops he and six friends had in the apartment.

    The officers announced they were taking everyone to jail for being gay. Ayo, 27, and four of his friends gained their freedom by bribing the police the equivalent of $600. Two others had no cash and spent three nights in detention.

    Ayo, who’s gay, is sure they’ll be back. “I don’t want to be used as business for whenever police need money,” he said in the southern city of Ibadan, speaking on the condition that his full name wasn’t used for fear of further harassment. Oyo state police spokeswoman Olabisi Ilobanafor said no arrests had taken place.

    While gay sex has been illegal in Nigeria since before its independence from the U.K. in 1960, President Goodluck Jonathan signed a law last month that bans gay groups, imposes a 14-year jail sentence for same-sex couples who live together and 10 years for people who make a “public show of same-sex amorous relationships.”

    Homosexuality is a crime in 38 of 54 sub-Saharan Africa nations, according to Amnesty International. From Senegal, where a conviction for gay sex can mean five years in jail, to Sudan, where it can bring the death penalty, Africa’s gays are facing an unprecedented crackdown.

    OK, have you all got it yet?

    Just in case anyone hasn’t…Panama played an important role in Scottish history. That’s where in the 1690s Scottish bigwigs set up a colony called Caledonia – on the Gulf of Darien on the isthmus of Panama – in an effort to make Scotland an international trading presence and make themselves loads of moolah in the process. Unfortunately for them, all they knew was ‘we want a colony’ and ‘we want to what the English do’. They didn’t know much else. After a few years, the idea collapsed, leaving them with enormous financial problems. In 1700, the Scottish landowning nobility abandoned ‘Caledonia’ altogether, and, begging bowl in hand, rushed gratefully towards Union with England, which they signed 7 years later.

      Agreed. Printing a scotto currency would be the same as borrowing anyway – except that, as you say, the scotto would soon get junk bond status (within a matter of days), because nobody would want it.

      What Salmond is saying is he wants England to be the lender of last resort to Scotland. Fuck that! Let ‘em run their own country!

      The only funny thing is that nobody in Scotland seems to know what “independence” means. No it doesn’t mean running 15% of the British Army. No it doesn’t mean getting “Scotland” printed on passports “when they get renewed”, as one SNP politician put it. No it doesn’t mean being like Jersey. Someone ought to drop some supplies of “clue” north of the border.

      I hope people in Scotland realise that Salmond hasn’t promised to run a Scottish version of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. In other words, go independent and then as soon as RBS, HBOS or those Aussie crooks at Clydesdale go bust, people will be lucky to end up with £85, let alone £85K. Still, look on the bright side, someone will have made a fortune.

    The most important issue of the Tory agenda is marriages for Gay-dogs.
    As an animal defender its reassuring to know Cameron is with us.

    Why does anyone give Clegg any respect at all? All these fawning newspaper articles about how great he is…I just don’t get it. To me he seems like a completely traitorous back-stabber who, when it suits him, cosies up to the Tories and now seems to be snuggling up with Labour. Lib-Dems are just a bunch of whores. They know they don’t stand a chance of ever ruling in their own right, and the only way they can be in power is due to electoral maths and the inevitability of coalition government. Once in power, all they do is block things they don’t like, and put forward barmy ideas that no-one cares about…or economically illiterate ideas like the Mansion Tax. What a bunch of completley retarded fuckwits! For the first time ever I actually have a small amount of respect for Milliband for telling Clegg to fuck off.

    While Calamity Clegg might be correct about Wavy Davy being spineless, it is a bit rich calling him anyone spineless, when he makes Millipede look like Rambo!

    Clegg on Cameron? Is this any surprise that Cameron the master spinmeister wonders who policies, quotes, hirings, firings, fartings etc etc, are going to play? His entire life is one PR campaign after another, he knows no other way and not for nothing does he regard himself as the heir to Blair. I’ve said this many times: Cameron is NOT a politician; he is certainly not a Tory. He simply wanted to be PM because given his background, given who his in-laws are – it was the natural thing for him to aspire to. And the Tory Party after one half good speech without notes, rolled over, waved its legs in the air, and annointed him. Even after the most loathed and despised PM in history, and his heir (Brown) who comes a close second – Cameron still could not win a Tory victory outright. People simply do not trust him to not sell us down the river. His political judgements are terrible as are his hirings. Only a complete fool would have hired Coulson; only someone desperate about his own image would have made a pal of the wicked witch from News Int, even if she was married to his mate from Eton. Cameron is playing to lose the next election – nobody with a desire to win could possibly make so many awful and elementary mistakes. Will he care if he loses? Nah. He would smoothly move on to the next great thing that is his destiny. The Tories simply do not understand how despised they are all over the country. People are really angry and every day Cameron manages to supply one more nail in the Tory party’s electoral coffin.

    Yes, I suppose that’s why the vast majority of the country voted Tory, and if it hadn’t been for the benefit scrounges up in Scotland and a few other northern gobshite areas, the Tories would have had a massive landslide victory! You absolute pillock, you have no idea how much damage the useless & criminally-incompetent Labour idiots inflicted on this country. Disgusted by your ignorance

      Calm down Mandy……I am in complete agreement with you. It is not that a majority of people voted Tory – NOT ENOUGH of them voted Tory. Going into a coalition has been a disaster – there should have been much tougher cuts in the welfare budget early on when the country was in the mood to stomach quite Draconian action by a strong government with a clear mandate. The Lib Dems frustrated all of this and in consequence the deficit takes longer to clear and the national debt will double from £750 billion in 2010 to £1.5 TRILLION in 2015. The consequence of all this is that not having a Tory government – a proper Tory government – means we are saddled with the appearance of a Tory government still not having solved the problems, with all the attenuated difficulties of managing an economy that is still in difficulty. As for my ignorance…..try looking in the mirror.
