Coalition Memorial Coin

2-sides-coalition

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…

        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.

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

      £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”?

      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.

    “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.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”
