Farage Driving His Tank to Doncaster

Not content with winding up Clegg, UKIP have decided to have their conference next year in Doncaster – in Ed Miliband’s seat. Which reminds Guido of 2006 when they actually parked a tank outside Tory conference.

          Yeah, it’s no biggie. No-one will want me in Industry or the lecture circuit, but I’ve got the family property portfolio to fall back on and can fing a place in the EU, do a few quangoes and move on later to the House of Lords … My daddy would hav ebeen proud. Then get my kids a safe seat, if only Ican find out how to make babies.

          But … please vote for me. PLEASE. I need it or I’ll never be able to face David again.

            Ed, you need a personal talisman so people can recognise you as you march boldly down the street..

            As a dedicated Marxist you will know that all the old African loony lefty leaders had their own – a white hanky, a fly whisk, a homburg hat, reflective sunglasses etc. So you need to get something distinctive for yourself in order for you stand out from the crowd.

            I suggest a banana.

            Regime Change in Ukraine and the IMF’s Bitter “Economic Medicine”

            http://www.globalresearch.ca/regime-change-in-ukraine-and-the-imfs-bitter-economic-medicine/5374877

            In the days following the Ukraine coup d’Etat of February 23, leading to the ousting of a duly elected president, Wall Street and the IMF–in liaison with the US Treasury and the European Commission in Brussels– had already set the stage for the outright takeover of Ukraine’s monetary system. The EuroMaidan protests leading up to “regime change” and the formation of an interim government were followed by purges within key ministries and government bodies.

            It is a well known fact that the IMF always makes the situation worse than it was before they arrived. They only have one formula – cuts cuts cuts and austerity. This organisation and the World Bank who are just as bad should be dissolved.

            Yup, they taught me that the use of the word ‘regularly’ at the end of a sentence may be called a ‘dangling modifier’.

            They also taught me that as it did not affect the meaning of the sentence in any way, such perversions were permitted. Clearly your school failed to complete the English grammar syllabus.

      He stole Morley from the previous sitting MP and scraped a small majority. Morley is an “old” traditional seat and will be susceptible to UKIP spoiling Balls’ little earner. They must all be sweating because, finally, the “Hard pressed” workers are going to give the “old Parties” such a kick in their collective scrotums that their Eds are going to go into orbit. By the time UKIP have stuffed the traditional Parties in the European Elections, we will be well on the way to routing the rabble.

Rail, coal – and I would say the retail industry too so the many thousands starving can be properly fed via a voucher/ fair shares policy on food. Not many went hungry in the late 40s, when food was rationed. We have to be bold and radical. Thank God for Stephen Kinnock’s new task force which for the first time should put a bit of socialist lead in the leadership’s pencil.

      What does reblog mean mummy?

      Blogging about a blog.
      This is generally a cop-out method for coming up with something to put on your own blog, as the reblog offender is simply writing about another blogger’s thoughts (and, of course, linking them in the hope that they’ll get a trackback themselves):
      “All that bilge rat ever does is blog about entries on other blogs. He’s a dirty reblogger!”
