Left Eagle Doesn’t Know What the Right Eagle is Doing

Readers will be well aware of Labour’s hypocrisy when it comes to gambling – last year alone two-faced Chuka bashed bookies before taking their cash, Tristram Hunt did exactly the same thing and Stephen Timms also went each way. Now one of the Eagles is going all in, hiring a gambling lobbyist as her new Political Adviser.

Ex-Blair press secretary Michael Stephenson previously worked for Miliband’s bargain basement strategist Bruce Hawker‘s lobbying firm, where he used his connections to lobby the Labour government on plans for 16 super-casinos across Britain. A former Co-op general secretary, his sound judgement and experience at keeping on top of the finances no doubt made him the stand out candidate to be Maria Eagle’s new political adviser. In other news Maria’s sister Angela is laying it on thick attacking the government’s Lobbying Act for “letting vested interests off the hook”…

    The Eagle Sisters are an electoral asset for the Tories. The prospect of them getting near government is 5-10 seats more.

          Too right I’m back stabbing. Slowly killing off Balls career for going near an ex-sweet heart of mine.


          • jgm2 says:

            I think Balls is the one slowly killing his own career. He gambled on a ‘double-dip’ or ‘treble-dip’ recession, his wicked and malicious boss salted the ground to practically guarantee one and it didn’t happen for him.

            Now he just looks unhappy because the economy isn’t as in the shit as when he was thrown out of office. The voters can see right through him.

            Him and Miliband are the ones responsible for turning a 13% poll lead into a 1% poll lead and still a year of improving economy and budget freebies to go.

      It might help if they didn’t always dress as though they had just done a turn in the tractor factory. Most Labour women seem to do this. You are paid a very good salary, I’m sure you could dress better.

    The Labour Party is a criminal conspiracy to steal our democracy and steal our money. Keep that simple truth clear in your mind and you will never be confused by the detail.

      That’s African levels of brutality. Idi Amin would be proud.

      If it all goes wrong for Kim Jong Un he can always convert to Islam. The Saudis will give him a nice safe home for the rest of his days.

    It was only a matter of time says:

    No justice, no pizza!

    The verdict of an inquest into Mark Duggan’s death – which found he was lawfully killed when he was shot dead by police – can be challenged, it has been ruled. Mr Duggan, 29, was shot in Tottenham, north London, in August 2011. Lawyers for his mother Pamela Duggan claim the Coroner’s directions to the jury in were “arguably inadequate”. Mr Justice Mitting said he was granting “limited permission” to apply for judicial review.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
