Awkward Len Moments

An afternoon full of awkward Ed Miliband moments during Len McCluskey’s Press Gallery lunch today, not least his verdict on the Labour leadership:

“I believe the British electorate are of a mind unless there is a real alternative to say you know what, we best stick with the devil we know. Miliband has got to give hope to people. He has got to demonstrate that he will do something different in power… They come up with ideas but no one seems to be pulling them together in a coherent way.”

Who was sat listening attentively on the front table just a few feet away? One Angela Eagle: Chair of Labour’s National Policy forum…

    Len, fancy an arm wrestle?

    Labour? In retrospect they’re a bunch of tossers.

    When I went for a bite with McCluskey
    He gorged like a ravenous husky

    Ain’t the freshest of men
    With an odour both pungent and musky

    Ah! Lawyers says:

    A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper, Guido, has cheated him out of $10,000,000.00.
    His bookkeeper is deaf/mute. That was the reason he got the job in the first place. It was assumed that
    Guido would hear nothing and would therefore never have to testify in court.
    When the Godfather goes to confront Guido about the missing $10 million, he takes along his lawyer,
    Who knows sign language. The Godfather tells the lawyer, “Ask him where the money is.”
    The lawyer, using sign language, asks Guido, Where’s the money?
    Guido signs back, “I don’t know what you are talking about.” The lawyer tells the Godfather, “He says
    He doesn’t know what you are talking about.”
    The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to Guido’s head and says, “Ask him again or I’ll kill him!”
    The lawyer signs to Guido, “He’ll kill you if you don’t tell him.”
    Guido trembles and signs back, “OK! You win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the
    Shed at my cousin Bruno’s house.”
    The Godfather asks the lawyer, “What did he say?”
    The lawyer replies, “He says you don’t have the balls to pull the trigger.”

    UK foreign policy being dictated by the EU, and by extension the former eastern bloc is certainly not what the UK signed up to back in 1974.

Rumour has it that Osborne’s filthy rich pals made £20 million a piece overnight from this sale, yet this excuse for a human being struts around like a poor man’s Al Capone, while his side kick Clegg thinks he is Colin Firth in a Richard Curtis movie. Meanwhile, an untold amount of people have died through benefit cuts, bedroom tax, and other injustices metered out by this heinous Condem filth; and they say that there’s no death penalty in this country!

    They’ve hijacked the Labour, LibDems and Conservative Parties but we’ve rumbled them. In our borough they have to pay beer swilling foreigners to deliver their election material because activists have had enough.

    Surely this whole sale was pure political dogma? The government sells of the pofitable bit but keeps the pension fund. A bit like Eastern Rail which is the only rail company owned by the government. By next year it will have made one billion pounds but the government intends to put it back up for auction.

    Untold indeed, hovering around zero I’d say. Since you use the phrase “bedroom tax”, I take it you support people occupying, at artificially low rents, publicly-owned housing that is too large for them, thus depriving others, with larger families, of accommodation; said families being driven to despair by being made to live in crappy bedsits and the like, at great cost to the taxpayer.

    For it the taxpayer, the person who actually contributes something, who is forced on pain of imprisonment to pay for it all … and from the tenor of your post I assume you too are a taker and not a giver.

    On my way back to my Istrian hideaway the other night I stopped at a restaurant to have a bite. As is common in these parts (where they feel there must be some ambient noise if not related to the vision), the sound of a radio accompanied the 40″ TV which was playing a film with its sound turned down. It had what looked like an older looking Sylvester Stallone. There was another guy, a badie in all probability, who was collecting his convertible of Cadillac appearance from a multi-story car park and who took the precaution of looking under it first to discover a bundle of sticks of explosive which he removed and gingerly pulled the fuse. He then asked the parking attendant to reverse the car out for him whilst he sheltered behind a pillar. This done he got in the dr’iver’s seat, concealing the explosives until just before he drove off and just before this, handed the stuff to the standing attendant. He got to the exit gate and the LED display at the side indicated “3,2,1” and then the car exploded, just as he realised what was going on. The last you saw of him was when his seat rose some 20′ into the air with his legs and arms ablaze.

    Anyone recognise this film as I cannot locate it? I have been right through the Stallone corpus without success.

    There are a number of politicians for which I could imagine this denouement as being entirely appropriate.

    Where Eagles Dare says:

    Try again.

    A while back (well around 11 years ago) I was driving along the M40 at quite a pace in the outside lane heading towards London. I was approaching Junct 2 (Beaconsfield) at a steady 99mph when I notice a couple of cars speeding down the slip road at a fair rate of knots.

    All of a sudden the two cars were travelling alongside me in the middle lane. the first car was a Jag whislts the second car, just behind, I noticed was a Range Rover. I then noticed that the Rangerover had blacked out windows and a huge ariel sticking out of the top. Must have come from Chequers I thought.

    The wife was sat next to me at the time. It was quite strange because I was quite clearly breaking the speed limit yet these two fuckers were on the inside lane from me and not yielding. I sad to the wife Oi!…take a gander at who is sat in the rear of the Jag. To my surprise, the missus yelled “It’s Tony Blair!”

    Now at this time, the Iraq War II was in full swing. For a brief second the thought passed my mind…”I could take out his car with a full blooded body swerve of my Mondeo Estate into the Jag”.

    But I bottled it.

    I have kids as well.

    That’s it.

    Is not the instinct for parents to do what is best for their kin.

    I know there are many millionaire/billionaire capitalists that have excomunicated their offspring from their wealth so that they can have the opportunity to “do it for themslves”.

    But perhaps that is why they are not socialists?

    Just watched Nightmare Neighbour Next Door which featured a truly repulsive family, the Chawners. To say they’re physically disgusting is an understatement. The mother looks like she lost a war with the ugly missile. I’m not exaggerating. She is one of the ugliest, most disgusting looking slobs you’ll ever see.

    But beyond how utterly repulsive they are, they’re also foul benefit scroungers who have happen to have a big flatscreen TV, and they’re all grotesquely obese too, so they’re clearly not missing any meals.

British Airways should do its patriotic duty and give free flights to all muzees from the UK who want to go to Syria to fight. If they’re desperate martyr themselves, let’s help ensure they martyr themselves in Syria. Every muzee in the UK who dies in Syria is one less parasite on the welfare state and one less potential terrorist on our shores.

    the mystic mould with the appearance of the face of Jesus says:

    On the general topic of the behaviour of the so called elected and HMGov; I can only imagine that they are deliberately trying to stir up the indigenous average white guy to revolution. I do not see what they intend to gain, they are supposed to be one of us. I worked in Europe many years, I can see the attraction of different cultures and the insights that may occur looking at the UK from outside but I think the difference is that I love my country whereas the elected and the HMGov seem to hate it.
    and further to that it may be that some people who travel abroad and meet other cultures might start out with a personality defect which might well cause them to have nonsensical ideas about what is important. ( I’m thinking here of the likes of Kinnock and other EU troughers )
    Upsetting the average white English guy is not what you want to do, we can take so much because of our natural tendency to want a quiet life but do not fucking push us.

    The upper echelons of the civil service hate this country because this country hates them for their utter mediocrity. A large number are socialists and crypto-socialists who despise the wealth creating middle classes almost as much as they loathe the working classes (who have never been forgiven for turning to Thatcherism). The lower ranks of the civil service are disproportionately populated by foreigners.

    I am not familiar with the expression liberal-democratic far right but my understanding of the word anarchism is that it is an ideal concept of a society that does not require laws because law is embodied within each individual who upholds it.
    When the P*kistanis came and the West Indians you would have to go out of your way to find one ( people would say ” those P*kistanis, I hear that they sleep ten to a room”)
    as an aside I came back from Bangladesh in the 80s and re-entering UK I over heard the custom official say to the Bangladeshi in front of me ” Oh Hello, and which hole did you crawl out of then ? ”
    There was a general attitude of that it is sinful to be racialist and in my travels I did train myself not to see colour or physiology. I just see idiots and non idiots and it is an observation that the brown, black people seem to contain a higher percentage of idiots than white guys.
    So I don’t know if it was all planned but I can imagine someone who was not inherently a patriot but had some been in his bonnet about everybody being equal might well try to fuck things up and make some sort of soup of humans.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
