No Gain for Payne

Spotted in Newark, a racing green Mini Cooper with a personalised numberplate spelling “MII PYN”. Might it belong to Labour’s local (government) candidate Michael Payne?

      Have the Labour PR banned Ed Miliband from campaigning in Newark after his Euro election debacle ?

      Bit tenuous what Guido ?!

      It could just as well be MII PYN i e possibly Dutch for MY PAIN and be one of Nick Clegg s “other cars ” !!

        Whatever it says, it is an illegal plate (spacing is not allowed) and I demand plod investigate, or do they only go after Tories?

      Depends on your opinion of personalised plates, but that it is a pre 2007 mini. Hardly brand new. Shows a rather frugal outlook, which is surprising for Labour. And at least it is British built.

    Probably, most wankers have personalised numberplates.

      The proportion of masturbators with personalised plates is probably pretty low. I think it’s the other way around – most people with personalised number plates are wankers.

        Shhhh!!! In my job they’re absolutely priceless. No more reaching for the pen and notebook to try and remember a registration. You don’t forget plates like “CEO 1″ or “F45TER”. Mwhaa haa haaa haaa.

          Perry Neeham says:

          Funny you should say that warden. My Dad always reckoned that personalised plates just made you more recognisable to Dibble.


          • Perry's Dad says:

            Why are you on the internet instead of painting the living room? Wait ’til I get home!

    What is it with Labour and personalised plates? Lucky Luciana Berger has a £5000 plate which she’s hidden from her constituents.

    One of the many cocks she’s been with on her greasy climb up the political ladder: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2010/01/30/article-1247403-019D27720000044D-402_468x440.jpg

      Except when we put our wives on the payroll, hire Irish actors for our ad campaigns, use Poles to distribute our leaflets. Terms and conditions apply.

        That would be hypocritical if it were UKIP policy to ban the employment of foreigners in the UK, or to deny the rights of nationality to European spouses.
        Besides, it would be agaisnt the law for UKIP to refuse to employ EU applicants.
        I expect it is even illegal for them to ask whether they are british rather than EU citizens: All application forms I’ve seen as whehter the applicant is elligable to work in teh UK, not whether they are British.

    Funny that Labour and the trade unions are up in arms over this taxi app. I bet if it were hundreds of Somali taxi drivers undercutting British workers Labour wouldn’t be so keen to support London cabbies.

      C.O.Jones says:

      Labour has always been anti competition of any description when it comes to vested interests. Applies even more so when the unions (Labour’s paymasters) are involved.

      Even better – as someone here mentioned yesterday, let them loose on bowls of spaghetti.

        Polly Twaddle says:

        That would backfire. We working class socialists were weaned on pasta on our Tuscan holidays a generation before the british plebs started to eat their meaty so-called “spag bol”.
        In factAxelgrease should set up challenges between teh candidates: let’#s see how the kippers get on with lobster and escargot.

    I remember being in Taunton around 30 years ago on election day when I saw a Labour candidate stop at the side of the road in his Bentley and change to a small mini so he could drive the last half mile to the polling station and look like a man of the people. Labour are full of it.

    It’s said that too much sex caused problems with the eyes.

    I don’t know about you, but the Mini looks blue to me.

    Please, someone tell me that I’m wrong.

    I would like to reassure the voters of Newark that, should you vote Conservative, I promise to continue to punish success with ludicrous marginal rates of tax.

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.”

The British media are Hunts says:

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
