Coalition Memorial Coin


With some LibDems calling for their party to split from the Tories sooner rather than later Labour have minted a new coin (on leaflets anyway) featuring the heads of the coalition parties. Guido suspects that some of the few remaining coalicious types would really like to mint this coin as a memento…

    Memorial or memento mori?

    Tim Yeo-Yo says:

    I’m so looking forward to a lab/lib coalition. It will give me the final excuse I’m looking for to emigrate to NZ.

  4. 4
    Idon'tneednodoctor says:

    Are labour saying that they wouldn’t go into coalition with the lib dems? Or is this pre-election labour two faced hypocrisy?

  5. 5
    Norman Normal says:

    Labour printing money when in difficulty? Aren’t socialists sooo predictable!

    Judge Jeffryes says:

    Distribute to every man, woman and child in the land to hunt down the traitors when the time comes.

    Lembit Opik clinging limpet like onto fame gave me that idea as well.

    thostids says:

    £375 Billions isn’t “some difficulty”. Unless you mean as in “Economic disaster and financial meltdown accompanied by Banking system and Stock Market failure”. Now that is “some difficulty”. But, how much has the Coalition overspent, and added to the National Debt during its period of “austerity”?

    Which one is the head and which is the arse?

    Now all the top banking “talent” will leave the country and our banking system won’t work as well as it has been.

    Labour should avoid drawing attention to monetary matters.
    It’ll just remind the electorate how utterly incompetent they
    were in power.

    UKIP the final solution says:

    Dont need labour to tell us that the liberal regime is a liberal party do we?

    Centrist pro EU enslavement liberal progressive big government, there are not many people who still believe the Tories are still a Tory party.

    For all his faults, and I personally think the man is a Hunt, I can actually see DC having a bit of gravitas at something like a G8 conference.

    Can you imagine Millitwat doing the same thing? He’d be mistaken for a SPAD….or spaz, take your pick. The guy is a fuking useless mong of a Hunt whilst DC is just a useless Hunt.

    well a memorial as I understand it is an item which commemorates the death of something – so I’d be very happy to see a memorial coin to the coalition.

    Bill Quango MP says:

    I prefer the Casandra coin to the Janus.
    Casandra could see the future but was powerless to do anything about it or warn of the tragedy that the future held.

    That’s the feeling I get looking at Ed Miliband

  51. 51

    Someone should run off some coins with Milliband on one side and whoever is his union paymaster on the other side.

    Ex Footy Fan says:

    What pisses me off is that the biggest criminals in this who treat their customers like shit walk away with their pockets bulging and the undying loyalty of the victims families.
    It’s the clubs that stuff inadequate grounds with supporters so players can earn in one week what four coppers do in a year.
    With that much money swilling around how the fuck is it everybody else’s fault but not the clubs?
    Maybe this type of brainless blind loyalty and devotion to your club is what helped cause the fucking disaster in the first place.

    Scotland will vote against independence.

    I didn’t think Labour had two coins to rub together.

  59. 59
    Coppers for the poor! says:

    Socialist leeches minting coins from the backs off the poor!

    It is easy to retaliate, I suggest Ed Miliscum & Len McClusky are the two sides of same coin.

    Looks like the first, and we hope, the last time anyone wants a coalition, especially with Lib Dems

    The coin should also be many-sided – and made of cardboard.

    Ah, I see a Single-Side, One-Nation coin in the making.

    There’s still a Tory Party, it’s just not represented in Parliament.

    The Royal Mint says:

    We have another coin in the works. On one side is Nigel Farage and on the other is someone else called Nick.

    Darn, who leaked that? says:

    Nick Robinson..

    “Coalition Memorial Coin”
    AKA: Funny money? Only redeemable in Dave and Nick’s Nicky-Knocky-Noo Land. Where once there lived a politician, who believed that anyone who didn’t share his mental fantasy was a fantasist, and had to be repeatedly told so. Then one day someone took him to one side, and instead of leaving him there, asked him very some simple questions. Such as: How can a politician claim to believe in democracy, yet hypocritically act to prevent plebiscites? Which are surely a touchstone of that ideology. Was not such flagrant cognitive dissonance the true indication of a fantasist? Unfortunately, much like the difference between a mental rendition of reality and reality itself, he couldn’t grasp the relevance of those questions either.

    We can but hope.

    And also 2 shillings short of a pound. There’s a great post that differentiates Ukip from the rest by suggesting the others have a mental disease.

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.”
