Bonkers Labour’s Thornberry Claims ‘Economy is Getting Worse’

Emily Thornberry slithered her way through the Daily Politics, but she has to be called up on this one:

ET: As time goes on our  economy gets worse.
AN: The economy gets worse?
ET: The economy is getting worse.

How out of touch can you get? The economy is not getting worse for Ms. Thornberry. Her vast multi-million pound family property empire is up 14% on the year…

    I thought the “very rude” Brillo made her look like an idiot.

    She’s a fat, disgusting, condescending, affected and supercilious pile of vomit.

  3. 3
    Chuckup Umunna says:

    Thornberry is getting worse. She’s certainly getting fat.

  4. 4
    Get to fuck says:

    Brillo’s great but to be fair a plank of wood can make her look like an idiot.

  5. 5
    Red Ed says:

    Emily knows there is a cost of living crisis, it is why she had to bike rather than drive to the show today.

    "The dunce of Downing Street" aka David Cameron says:

    The host of Wednesday night’s BBC Clegg v Farage debate says it is his job to “get the two of them hurling custard pies at each other””.

    Has she got her very own seat at the Beeboid towers? The silly old fart is never off their airwaves.

    She is right, but not for the right reasons.

    The national debt has ballooned totally out of control and wages are being driven down by a flood of foreigners.

    pretentious, moi? says:

    To be fair, from Labour’s twisted view point, the economic conditions are worse for their spin merchants.

    They still think the economy is a zero-sum game.

    “A graduate tax….”

    Fuck me, is that all these fuckwits can think of?

    And, according to Wiki she has a couple of kids- just goes to show that you can have a face like a bulldog licking piss off a nettle and be thick as fucking pigshit and there’s still some poor bastard out there who’s so desperate for a shag that he’s prepared to climb on top of a fucking munter like this. Jesus H fucking Christ on a little pink tricycle.

    Labour MP is a liar. Shocker!!

    Garfield says:

    Turns out she was a uman rites lawyer also following is very interesting, even her old man is a trougher.

    During the course of a campaign run by Thornberry on the subject of social housing, the Islington Tribune, a local newspaper, discovered that her husband had bought ex-social housing stock for over half a million pounds and receives rental income from the property. It also emerged that the new residents are Labour Party activists.[43] Some related claims in the article regarding Emily Thornberry’s involvement in the matter were later retracted by the paper.[44]

  33. 33
    Labour is the nasty party. says:

    I thought that Abbot was thick but Thornberry comes across as an arrogant
    ignoramus . What is happening to the Labour party?

    She does talk a load of old cobblers. She talks a lot and says nothing of any meaning. I suppose she is in the right party for that.

    Anyone would think today’s juvenile mainstream media has not seen dust in rain before.

    Have they never wondered why raindrops sometimes leave marks on windows or cars?

    IQ_of_154 says:

    She’s a Labour MP and therefore has no understanding of how an economy works…

    Gok Wan says:

    Whoever did her hair was wasting their time.

  39. 39
    Stop the lie's says:

    Some people do like free speech, but unfortunately this comes with the right to lie! (or it seems in Labours case the obligation to lie).

    This is one area a change in the law would be useful, say fines for statements made in public
    which are clearly false/incorrect setting this at £150 per infringement would be a good starting point (the first person to report the infringement gets £50 or is fined £150 if they have made a false claim).

  40. 40
    lojolondon says:

    “The promises we make we intend to fulfil”!!

    Hilarious – coming from the Liebour party that tell more lies than all the rest put together!!

  41. 41
    jgm2 says:

    He’s wrong. Thank God.

    Otherwise we’d be the ones sitting in a resource rich, water rich, food rich continent yet living in tin shacks at the side of the road and starving to death.

  45. 45
    A Right Fucking Bastard says:

    “We were a single parent family”.

    Yeah right- father was visiting professor at King’s College and mother was a teacher who later became a Labour councillor and mayor. Hardly “The Road To Wigan Pier”.

    As Hitch points out, faux outrage from a member of the Welfare Party.

    Gobby fucking Lefty harridan with a face like a fucking smashed crab.

  46. 46
    Fred, the old Africa hand says:

    He is also a fucking liar. For the past 30 years the EU have done their damndest to CLOSE the EU markets to most African countries. The Africans keep telling him they want ‘trade not aid’, but cloth ears does not seem to understand what they are getting at.

  47. 47
    C.O.Jones says:

    I reckon I could do a better job with a pair of garden shears.

    She talks a lot and says nothing of any meaning.

    Lawyer’s training. Paid by the hour.

  49. 49
    jgm2 says:

    Even more hilarious when you consider that their previous leader, the Maximum Imbecile, went to court to prove that the promises they make are not subject to legitimate expectation.

    So that’s another lie.

    That stinking polar opposite trick again. So normal for Labour bods, even when being ‘PULLED UP’ about it. They think it is just for ‘clarification’ and has nothing to do with the fact that it is either a half truth, or a downright lie.

  52. 52
    Fred the pensioner says:

  64. 64
    Fishy says:

    What was she on the Daily Brillo for, FFS?

    She was criticising the Government over their tuition fees…but hadn’t got a policy of her own

    She was criticising the Government about the sale of Royal Mail but confronted by Mandleson’s* desire to privatise it…she goes into denial

    There is a conversation about the TV licence…nothing, not a word

    *There have been three or four female Labour MPs on Brillo in recent months (including Chris Leslie), and when confronted about Labour’s record have responded by saying, ‘Nothing to do with me, I wasn’t an MP when that happened’.

    As I say, WTF was she on for? Labour can’t get much lower

  65. 65
    Di Rear says:

    This silly, overweight, obnoxious labour lovie had the nerve to call Brillo rude.
    This hypocrisy from someone who spends most of her time, (like most labour lovies) interupting and talking over everyone

    These tossers will not stop until they have one world government. One currency, one parliament, one colossal legal system, one police force, everybody a sort of coffee colour with no idea of identity or history, except the puerile slop they are indoctrinated with in the single education system. All overseen by the unelected president of the world.

    I’m not a tin foil hatter, it appears obvious that these bastards really think that this is desirable, and an achievable goal.

    Thornberry sounds and looks like a character from a Richard Curtis sit com. A poor mans Dawn French. Good to see Hitchen calling out the fucking idiot in the glasses who seems incapable of distinguishing between money made by private enterprise and money provided by the public purse. In addition half of the audience are thick as fuck clapping along like seals at the idiocy of Thornberry.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
