    Owen Jones says:

    Viva Venezuela! And don’t ask me anything difficult on Twitter, I’ll just block you. That’s the kind of brave, fearless person I am!

      Taking money to help rig elections is as shitty if yiu do it overseas and it is when you do it here.

        C.O.Jones says:

        Interesting how some observers declined to monitor the elections for fear that their integrity would be compromised.


        • 45
          Point of Order says:

          Owen Jones and Di Abbott are excused that as they had no integrity to start with.

          In any case, Owen was just on a school trip with his ‘aunt’.


          • Dr Ke-lly says:

            Owen Jones and his like would happily silence and even kill their polticial opponents if he had the chance to do it in this country. It’s what socialists do.


          • The Cheshire Cat says:

            Owen Moans & Flabbutt are bad enough but what about Dromey, Harman & Hewitt – former affiliates of the PIE club…….not reported on the Savile Channel, of course.


    • 108
      Talen said something like that says:

      If you don’t shout FRAUD when you witness a fraud you are a fraud

      Jeremiah says:

      Wot’s this Guido, a pleb to narrate your short clip, you could do better, standards are slipping. I bet some of this lot if they don’t get back into power will be clammering for a nice jobbie they nothing about as the head of a QUANGO it seems par for the course with politicos, not just Smiffy (my, he looks a very old man, I am 5years older and don’t look that bad, must be the hard life he has led) and the others mentioned.


    • 118
      Jeremiah says:

      How many hoops can you jump through backwards, it is essential prerequisite for us to offer you the job.

    Chuka at the gym, lifting small weights whilst the House debated flooding says:

    Macho, macho man
    I’ve got to be… Oh, hold on. I haven’t checked my Wikipedia profile for at least ten minutes. Just need to make sure no one’s added anything embarrassing.


  4. 4
    UKIP or bust says:

    I see in the tweet above: “Understand Tories have given their MPs strict advice about not commenting on Harman/Dromey p@edophile story.”

    I needn’t think he should worry, the Bbbc will not give this much air.


    • 58
      BBC News and Propaganda Unit says:

      We shan’t be covering alleged links between
      Harman, Dromey, Hewitt’s NCCL and PIE.


    • 107
      John Bellingham says:

      It was mentioned in passing on Radio 4 the Today programme when the announcer editorialised by saying “This is surely against the law to say such things”.
      (He also thought it against the law to edit The Archers–but then that’s the BBC for you).

      A thought. All those little kiddies molested by the Labour-backed PIE members in the 1980s would be in their early/mid 40s today. How many entered politics?


      • 120
        Fly on the wall says:

        So how soon before they all come forward and the roundabout starts all over again? Lawyers love this sort of thing – effectively free cash handouts for them.


        • 128
          Jeremiah says:

          Dave is making sure that legal aid will not be available for them to pursue any claims. There have been rumours on this blog that certain older Cons have indulged but Dave will not be pursuing them, these are just insinuations anyway no proof, all can say of the accusers put up or shut up.


          • Charlie says:

            Did’ nt Private Eye cover this topic in the 1980s. There was also Islington Childrens Homes run by Labour at the same time. The Labour MP who is an oppenheimer denies all knowledge of such activities even though she was the leader of the council.

    Ed Balls says:

    Tax avoidance street coming soon.

      A Victim says:

      Oohhhhhhhh Look over there. There’s a taxpayer footing a bill for a green lesbian to sit behind a desk all day ‘monitoring’ something.


    • 130
      Jeremiah says:

      Dave will not be pursuing those as they give lots of lovely money to the Cons, in the same way Liebore didn’t really pursue them, in fact they told them to relax restrictions which Liebore did which triggered the almighty mess known as the big crash.

    MB. says:

    Oh dear, a few unpleasant facts about leading members of the Labour party being aired again in the Daily Mail today. Been known for ages but this should make their background more generally known.

    Labour’s child sex apologists: How three of the party’s most senior figures campaigned for a vile paedophile group now being probed by police for ‘abusing children on an industrial scale’


    • 111
      Labour, this is what you could be voting for says:

      i) Industrial scale child abuse and a pathological hatred of Britain

      ii) Illegal wars, state sanctioned domestic assassinations, repression of freedom of expression and thought.

      iii) A broken economy, uncontrolled immigration, and conceding defeat to hostile foreign forces for no good reason.

      iv) State sanctioned fraud (Co-Op), control by Unions who defraud rather then represent their members, a higher tax burden and more EU.

      That’s just for starters.

      Cameron has not done much better.

      UKIP is the way forward.


      • 133
        Jeremiah says:

        If Farage can get his party into order UKIP should trounce the Cons, that is why Dave is panicking, he is reaching the state where nobody knows what he really stands for or even believes him, come on Nige you haven’t got long to the EU elections only 3 months, you are leaving it very late, you are the party of protest now!

          Cami-macmilloButler stands for nothing except what The Establishment tells him. During the periods of inactivity, chillaxing is permitted. He is little more than an affable playboy. It’s what the bugger will get up to after he is thoroughly kicked out of power come May 2015 bothers me!

    Revolting says:


    How will Labour spin this? Harman, Dromey and Hewitt were involved with a group that wanted to reduce the age of consent to 4 and to legalise incest, a group that received funding from the Callaghan government.

      It is to be hoped that this includes his gold plated MP pension (along with all the other foreign troughers than infest the HoC).

      Please don’t resign Maria. The Gay Mafia owes you a debt of gratitude for helping me legislate for Gay Marriage. They would instruct me to refuse to accept your resignation.

          cornwall storms says:

          that’s because there haven’t been any since bliar came to power and taught everyone in the political classes that honour, or honesty for that matter, played no part in politics.

        With the shady pasts and dodgy connections of many of our political class, it would sure be easy for some unscrupulous agency or vested interest (domestic or foreign) to blackmail certain top people into doing their bidding.

        Hypothetically of course.

        Not much bothered about his sexual orientation. His lack of capability , skills and qualifications for doing the job government has given him with a very generous salary and expenses package is more to the point. Not to mention his complete and utter lack of interpersonal skills that put him on a par with gordon.

      I haven’t paid it for 9 years.

      • 92
        UK TV is unwatchable these days says:

        Ceasing payment of telly tax is the first step.

        The most important follow up is to then stop watching it.

        That really does improve life a lot.

          I agree – anyone show disagrees should do an experiment. Don’t watch if for a whole week. Then sit down and watch some.

          Within 5 minutes you will start to feel a small ball of anxiety and fury start to form in the pit of your stomach. Switch it off again.

          This presumes you are not already a fully fledged MSM drone. If this is not the case, you carry on enjoying the flashing gaudy noisebox which may help to fill the yawning void at your core somewhat.

    1. Little furry animals don’t vote but angry farmers/residents do.

    2. Motorists vastly outnumber cyclists.

    3. Electricity & gas bill payers vastly outnumber eco-loons in Islington.

    4. Tony Abbott just won a landslide in the Aussie general election against the eco-loony Labour party.

    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

    So Labour are going down the same eco-loony tax bombshell route the Lib Dems are:

    Vote Lib/Lab for higher petrol prices

    Vote Lib/Lab for higher electricity and gas bills

    Vote Lib/Lab for higher council tax

    Vote Lib/Lab for higher income tax

    Bye bye Lib/Lab :-)

    Casual Observer 7 says:

    Employment up and Unemployment rate up ?

    Two explanations:

    i) The figures are wrong

    ii) The rate of people becoming eligible to be considered unemployed is rising faster than the number of positions being filled.

    This situation could be caused by increases in the eligible population that can be considered unemployed. Youth unemployment could be up, or this is the effect of immigration showing up in the employment statistics.


    • 122
      Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

      Agreed. Unemployment down 125,000 but the rate up from 7.1% to 7.2%. Either the figures are wrong or a huge number of immigrants have just entered the country.
