Labour Asking the Right Questions

Labour have put down a written question today: “To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills what discussions either orally or in writing he or his Ministers or officials in his Department have had with (a) Pfizer and (b) AstraZeneca in the last two months regarding any bid for AstraZeneca.” Asking the government the same question they themselves refuse to answer

    Get Duncan-Smith to give an answer. He lapped it up over IRAQ.

    “Well, I recall ringing your Spads” would be a clever answer for me…..

    How much did they pocket for asking that question?

    What’s that their attacking each other on the same grounds… Shock. Lobby laws target charities critical of Government policies. Shock. Lobbiest’s continue to have access to top politicians including Cam, Milli, Clegg and Farage… Shock!

    Dirty politics says:

    Dan Hodges said of the Labour PPB: “It’s not just the ludicrous caricature of the Conservatives – including a gratuitous dig at the late Baroness Thatcher”

    That was one of the most disgusting things about that PPB. It proves that, when all is said and done, Labour have no hesitation in being absolutely venal and nasty. The gloves should be taken off and the Tories should respond with great vehemence. If they think it’s ok to make a dig at someone who died last year, then there should be a PBB by the Tories mocking Bennism and how Miliband’s poll ratings are worse than Foot.

    “Labour Asking the Right Questions”
    would surely include them challenging instances of their own ideological hypocrisy. (For example: The Cooperative Bank arm-twisting saga. Where claims of involvement by Balls are either false, or true and unforgiveable). Otherwise this is nothing more than an unproductive tirade betwixt kettle and pot. Conducted in a coal cellar at midnight.

    Piss? Come now, Guido doesn’t moderate swearing. For example:

    Labour is a fucking evil party stuffed with the most cretinous c-unts imaginable, especially Ed Balls, who’s a truly vile fucking piece of shit, a total arsehole whom I’d happily punch repeatedly in his c-unting ugly mong face because he’s a complete bastard and an evil piece of puke stained shit.

    Naah. Their PPB is not designed to win any new votes. It is merely designed to amuse their own insiders.

    They’ve got nothing to offer. They know it. We know it and now the whole world knows it.

    There is no need to rubbish Benn when they can stick the boot into Blair and Brown and Balls at the appropriate time.

    jgm2 says:

    Are you perhaps confusing Ed Balls with Gordon Brown?

    Grammar School Boy says:

    …and openly calling people ‘Toffs’ is an acceptable form of insult in media/political elite la-la land but heaven forbid that someone may even be referred to as a ‘Pleb.’

    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

    The YES campaign in Scotland just need to bang on, day in day out, between now and September, that an independent Scotland will never have to suffer rule by a Tory government from London (Thatcher 80s,Cameron today) that a majority of Scots didn’t vote for and they’ll win the referendum with a landslide.

    The NO camp can’t promise no more Tory rule for Scotland, only the YES to independence camp can.

    It’s just class war schtik. Labour have nothing else.

    Gordon Brown started it when he destroyed the UK economy and was reduced to rekindling a class war to keep his bovine 28% on-side.

    That’s all they’ve had since. Class war. ‘Up the workers’ horseshit. It still works for the morons of the north and Fucking Scotland but elsewhere, where the ‘workers’ actually work as opposed to leech off the state, it has no traction at all.

    life in the real world says:

    Balls went to public school and Miliband lives in a
    million pound North London mansion. They don’t
    represent the ‘working class’ any more than Clegg
    or Cameron.

    A record 17 million international visitors flocked into London in 2013, up 43.5% in just 10 years. But only 15 million returned home.

    Vote UKIP.

    In Britain Labour’s wealthy elite want to keep people
    poor and dependent to maintain their core vote.

    What questions did Miliband ask when Labour allowed
    our nuclear power stations to be taken over by the French
    in 2009?

    Panic on the Left says:

    Someone has brought attention to Guido’s Labour/AZ story on the Guardian’s politics blog this morning and all hell has broken loose. Labour nutjobs tying themselves in knots trying to defend it and somehow attack the Tories at the same time.

    M­a­qboul says:

    Conversely no more Labour rule for England. It is a win-win situation but I’m afraid the porridge gobblers will bottle it.

    Freedom, old chap!

    Under Siege 2 says:

    I live in the North and it might surprise you to learn that they are losing their faith in labour.

    Overheard some in the pub, who normally vote labour and have done so for generations,saying they will vote UKIP. Because, “When I am in (supermarket) I can’t tell what country I am in, most people are talking foreign!”.

    Ctesibius says:

    Johnson and Boswell in the Highlands arguing about what Scotland had to offer – Johnson making the point that it had very little.

    Boswell: “But Sir, look around you! Scotland offers many fine prospects” (prospects meaning views)

    Johnson: “Aye Sir, it does. Many fine prospects. But the finest prospect of all for a Scotchman is the road to England!”

    UK Wide Open Border's Agency & Not Acountable to Anyone says:

    Sorry but the 15 Million figure has been manipulated very much “Upwards”
    as the real number was well below 10 million & who could blame the millions
    upon millions that stayed given all of the unlimited benefits they can accrue
    with no real questions asked…….

    Don’t worry, some Labour gimp will whisper in their ear that it’s all Fatcha’s fault and they’ll be retuned for another decade.

    Under Siege 2 says:

    It’s the oppositions job to criticise. As they haven’t really got much they have to make up something to criticise along with inside help from the donour inside AstraZenica.

    It’s the usual transparently thin crap from Labour. They think everyone’s stupid.

    Libidinous Demagogue says:

    I doubt they even think much at all.

    Every single thing they’ve tried this year has been dozy as fock. It’s only that the Tories and their fags are so weak that makes Labour look like less of an epic failure than they actually are.

    I was predicting 35% for both the big parties, but that’s starting to look far too generous. At this rate they might both struggle to stay above 30 in the polls… It’s the combination of lack of charisma; lack of competence; lack of coherence; and persistent sexual deviency and financial corruption.

    They are all so focked up as institutions like eurovision scientologists, that only their religiously devoted flock can stomach voting for them… and how long can that last?

    I mean, who would publically want to be associated with any of ‘em?!

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.”
