          Clarkson was / is very close to standing for UKIP.

          He would be very popular and a disaster for the Tories.

          Hence massive effort by the BBC and MSM to discredit him as a racist… before he can stand.

          Dangerous stuff.

          Hey, did you hear about the reason there is going to be a by-election in Newark?

          The Tory MP had to be removed because he is corrupt.

      If it is possible to organise a by election in under 5 weeks it is possible to organise a general election in the same sort of time. With an in-out referendum on Europe on the same day.

      The white flag option would be to hold it two weeks later, in the middle of the World Cup when the media would only care about the England v Uruguay game. The 5 June shows a bit of confidence at CCHQ.

      “What this result shows is that the UKIP performance in the euro elections was a understandable protest vote, but when it comes to parliamentary elections voters still prefer the main political parties.”

    and still no sign of a democratic referendum on the horizon. Might as well be a citizen in an EU controlled sector of Ukraine. Could it possibly be that whoever said:” If voting changed anything it would be prevented”, was on to something?

      A minister in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam in the 1980s said rent controls there led to poor housing standards and did more damage to Hanoi than American bombs.
      In Venezuela, rent controls imposed in December 2012 have failed to combat rising inflation which hit 39.6 per cent in June.
      In New York, rent controls are blamed for reducing the city’s housing supply. Varying degrees of control over rent operated on and off in Britain from the First World War until the 1980s.
      Official figures show they contributed to the private rented sector shrinking from 55 per cent of households in 1939 to 8 per cent in the late 1980s.
      Jack Dromey and his wife Harriet Harman own at least two large homes, including one in Herne Hill, South London.

Lord Glasman tells it like it is:

“The first thing is to acknowledge that Labour has been captured by a kind of aggressive public sector morality which is concerned with the individual and the collective but doesn’t understand relationships.”
