Don’t Mention the Day Job

Talking of Downing Street aides… LibDem council candidate Matthew Hanney’s record is there for all to see on this leaflet he has been handing around in Lambeth. Lives locally, check. A LibDem for years, check. Customary slap for Lambeth Labour, check. Just the one thing is missing. For some reason Hanney makes no mention of the fact that he has been a Special Adviser to Nick Clegg since he became Deputy PM, and a close aide for years before. Does Hanney not want voters to know about his vital role at the heart of government?

    Oh, dear. Cat now out of the bag.

    Ed Dafty, LimpDim MP, Climate Change Chieftain says:

    Aren’t all LibDem Councillors on their local MP’s payroll ( funded by the Taxpayers ) ?

    Andrew Efiong says:

    This guy doesn’t want to be known as the bag carrier of David Cameron’s bag carrier. What a humiliating role!

    Just think if he was a roadsweeper, council worker, sewer inspector or some other low grade job he’d be boasting about it!

      “…Hanney makes no mention of the fact that he has been a Special Adviser to Nick Clegg…”

      He’s from Lambeth.
      Everything’s free and easy.
      He does as he damn well pleasey.
      (And I would know about such things, wouldn’t I?)

    Ned Ludd says:

    Let’s be fair to the guy now. Would YOU want anyone to know?

    Dog Whistle says:

    One positive is that Hanney is obviously doesn’t want the Clegg relationship to damage his campaign…fair call really. Ed’s on the money (taxpayer’s money) – have a look a Ed Davey’s office – you’ll find a chunk of his staff are also local Councillors…

      I wouldn’t bother – posting your favourite youtube video is so 1999 and even then only for schoolchildren.

      How old are you now FFS.

    Putin’s ongoing press conference is superb. The man is in a different league to the poseurs of the west.

      Watching and learning is precisely what the West is doing.

      Just waiting for his first mistake.

      Word is that political support back in R’ussia is not behind him, perhaps because he is over-egging the home front propaganda a bit.

      P’tin is counting on R-Fed MSM organs to broadcast and control what people are mainly seeing.

      ‘Net is defeating this. For example, first defensive move: blocking access to certain sites related to U.

      Problem in R-Fed is that ‘Net penetration still low among adult population.

        C O (Ξ4) says:

        That is a very good propaganda piece, designed to disarm you.

        It does not represent his actual thinking.

        That is targets the liberal left mindset very well demonstrates that he understands his enemy better than we understand him.

        Before crediting him too much, just bear in mind that R-Fed has subverts international law in order to gain strategic advantage, as West did in run up to !raq.

        On that basis the argument that one side has moral superiority over the other is void.

        The liberal left mindset is the enemy within: That mindset is way too prevalent in Europe for its own good.

    And what might that be? Appearing on LBC. Not to explain why blocking MP recall by the people, helps prevent politicians that have obtained selection though false election promises from being forced to stand again.

    The Ukrainians must be regretting giving up their nuclear weapons without even getting to join NATO.

    The first priority of any patriotic government is to ensure territorial integrity and nuclear weapons are the only guarantor of that.

    No nuclear armed country has been successfully invaded/occupied.

      C O (Ξ4) says:

      If R-Fed takes U they will put nukes back.

      U cannot rearm as it is a signatory to the NPT (non prof treaty) as a non-nuclear-weapon State.

      NPT is under the microscope here, and that is a bit more serious.

      All other similar signatories will be watching, but this action will have already initiated the start of a new nuke arms race.

      They don’t normally fine you for a first or even second offence. You get a reminder letter or phone call and a few pence a day interest added.

    BBC today “Ukraine crisis: William Hague warns Russia” I bet Putin is shaking in his trainers, probably would never have invaded anywhere if he knew he was going to be “warned” by Hague – “Why did no one tell me that Hague would use ‘warnings , who knew he has intercontinental warnings at his disposal ? I must step down”
    If that slapheaded pompous arse had a grain of nous ,he would know that Putin does not give two shakes of a wolf’s wanger what Obama , let alone muttonface, has to say about anything. Just makes us look stupid , a small island still under the illusion that we are an empire and issuing grave threats that Russia will pay for this although how he doesn’t specify, his clockwork ran down.
    Sit down Mr Hague and shut up, take that as an ongoing instruction unless you want to wee .

    Maybe he forgot?
