Another PX Wonk to No. 10

James Forsyth reports that Policy Exchange wonk Max Chambers is to join the No. 10 policy unit to take on the home affairs brief. Yet another helicopter head from the finishing school for SpAds. Guess Patrick Rock ain’t coming back any time soon…

    Are these the same policies that Camoron has been running with for the last four years, can’t see why we need a piper and all his musicians if they can’t play the music, that’s what it’s been like from Camoron for the last four years

      As long as they don’t connive with the French to put up my taxes – as the Labour Party so regularly do, then UKIP demonstrating the approproate level of disrespect for the rotten EU bullshit is OK by me.

      Great, they are not nodding through draconian laws, but nodding off instead; mind you when the Europiles are droning on who wouldn’t fall asleap?

      See, that’s UKIP’s thing. They’ve been elected to be uncooperative and take the piss. Everybody knows that.

      It’s no fucking secret.

      Worried Labour might come second to UKIP or something?

      Tom Catesby. says:

      Just after the loss of Britain’s American colony, Lord North walked into parliament in the middle of a loud debate. He saw one of the opposition on his feet and North asked a colleague what the matter was. Noth was told that the honourable member was, ‘outlining the history of the crimes of our party’. North replied, ‘wake me when he gets to modern times’, then sat down and dozed off.

    Hilarious to watch another pathetic attempt by the Telegraph to smear UKIP. Or are they secret supporters? One might think so when they come up with this headline:

    “EU elections: German Eurosceptics snub ‘ridiculous’ Ukip
    German Eurosceptics snub “ridiculous” Ukip in a new blow to Nigel Farage ”

    At last someone who has really found what the public want from him in the EUSSR, nothing, we don’t want their rubbish laws, their corruption, their lies, we don’t want him to help them in anyway, except if they vote for throwing Britain out of the EUSSR

      jgm2 says:

      It only needs a single poll to show UKIP in the lead and the whole fucking thing will snowball.

      There’s still enough Labour bedwetters and red-faced Tories determined not to give the ‘other’ side a ‘victory’ but if Nigel can just get a slight poll lead then many of them will give it -

      ‘Do you know what? Fuck it. As long as the ‘other lot’ (be it Tory or Labour) don’t win then I don’t give a fuck who does.’

      LibLacCon could be wiped out in the Euros. And, with luck and momentum on their side, in the 2015 GE.

      How sweet would that be?

    catesby says:

    Still not enough questions have been asked regarding Scameron’s choice of Patrick Rock as a close and trusted adviser. Rock stood in 2 elections and lost both times in’84 he lost the Tories Portsmouth South in a bye-election a seat the Tories had held since 1918! His next job was working for the left-wing eu commissioner Chris Patten who lost his Bath seat in 1992 when his party won the election with a record vote! It’s amazing what great heights political failure can lead you to! Scameron has never won an election either.

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”

Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
