Claims that Miliband said: “I am Very, Very Sorry”

It has been claimed that Ed Miliband was forced to apologise to the people of Liverpool after seemingly the entire city jumped aboard the outrage bus over the Labour leader’s photo holding the Sun. Politics.co.uk report on a meeting with Scouse MPs yesterday:

“[Miliband] was left in no doubt whatsoever about what they thought. Ed Miliband said he was very, very sorry.”

The sincerity of these words should be looked at in perspective: Miliband gratefully accepted the chance of an op-ed for the Sun on Sunday in January and was photographed and filmed going around London with the Sun cabbie just last month. He also posed with the paper in 2011 and 2012. It is almost as if he has calculated that Liverpool will vote Labour anyway…

    Andrew Selous profile: The member who claimed 55p for a mug of Horlicks

    Andrew Selous was educated at Eton College and the London School of Economics. He served in the Territorial Army for more than a decade, combining this with a career in insurance, before being elected as MP for South West Bedfordshire in 2001.

    The Conservative MP was a member of the Work and Pensions Select Committee until 2005. The following year, he was promoted to shadow Work and Pensions Minister.

    During the expenses scandal, it emerged that the married father-of-three had claimed 55 pence for a mug of Horlicks in the members’ tea room. And Mr Selous was ridiculed last year after tweeting: “Strongly support the loss of benefits unless claimants lean [sic] English.” The tweet was subsequently deleted.

    A supporter of the controversial bedroom tax, he has voted against raising welfare benefits in line with prices, and has been parliamentary private secretary to Iain Duncan Smith, Work and Pensions Secretary, for the past four years.

    The politician describes how his “motivation for being a Member of Parliament is that I love my country and want to serve it”. In the statement, on his website, he adds: “My Christian faith inspires me in much of what I do in Parliament.”

          Odd place Liverpool. Many, many years ago when I was an impressionable 8 year old I was taken to Anfield to watch Liverpool play Arsenal.

          At half time when the scousers all got their drinks and hot pies and other crap it seemed that when they got back most of them decided to urinate where they stood rather than all that effort of going back to the bogs near the bars.

          So I stood there as thousands of gallons of piss washed down the steps towards the pitch; hardly any of them seemed to bat an eyelid so I assume this was their idea of normal.

          I vowed never, ever, ever to go back to Liverpool ever again. Ghastly shithole. Ghastly self pitying people…

      Far from their Liverpool home, a young Scouse couple are stranded on the M25 one cold and rainy night with a broken down motorbike. A friendly trucker stops to see if there’s anything he can do to help, but explains that there isn’t room in his cab to give them a lift. “Aw ey mate”, says the male Scouser plaintively, “Giz a lift – we’ll squeeze in the back if yer like.”

      The trucker is so touched by this eloquent plea that he agrees to their request. He tells them they’ll have to squeeze in with the load he’s hauling, which is 20,000 footballs, but if they can fit, they’re welcome to a ride – he’ll even take the bike too if they want.

      By the time they are all loaded up, the trucker is really late and so puts his foot down. Sure enough, just south of Watford he gets pulled over for speeding. The good officer asks the driver what he’s got in the back of his truck, to which he begins to reply “Scouse,,,,”, then thinks better of it and in panic says, “er… eggs!”, which is the load he was carrying last week. The policeman, noticing his odd behaviour decides to take a look for himself.

      He opens the back door and quickly shuts it and locks it, face as white as a sheet. He gets onto his radio and calls for immediate backup from as many officers as possible.

      The police dispatcher asks what on earth requires so many officers. “I’ve got a wagon with 20,000 Scouse eggs in it – the first two have hatched and they’ve managed to nick a motorbike already!”

      Ferrari Pit Crew Fired

      This announcement followed Ferrari’s decision to take advantage of the British government’s ‘Work for your Dole’ scheme and employ some Liverpudlian youngsters. The decision to hire them was brought about by a recent documentary on how unemployed youths from Toxteth were able to remove a set of wheels in less than 6 seconds without proper equipment, whereas Ferrari’s existing crew could only do it in 8 seconds with millions of pounds worth of high tech equipment.

      It was thought to be an excellent, bold move by the Ferrari management team as most races are won and lost in the pits, giving Ferrari an advantage over every other team.

      However, Ferrari got more than they bargained for! At the crew’s first practice session, not only was the scouse pit crew able to change all four wheels in under 6 seconds but, within 12 seconds, they had re-sprayed, re-badged and sold the car to the Mclaren team for 8 cases of Stella, a bag of weed and some photos of Coulthard’s bird in the shower.

      Dear Deirdre

      I am a sailor in the merchant navy. My parents live in South London and one of my sisters, who lives in Brixton, is married to a guy from Liverpool.

      My mother and father have recently been arrested for growing and selling marijuana and are currently dependant on my two sisters who are prostitutes. I have two brothers, one who is currently serving a non-parole life sentence in Wormwood Scrubs for the rape and murder of a teenage boy in 1994, the other is currently being held in Wandsworth on charges of incest on his three children.

      I have recently become engaged to marry a former Thai prostitute who is still a part time ‘working girl’ in a brothel, however her time there is limited as she has recently been infected with AIDS. We intend to marry as soon as possible and are currently looking into the possibility of opening our own brothel with my fianceé utilising her knowledge of the industry working as a manager. I am hoping my two sisters would be interested in joining our team.

      Although I would prefer them not to prostitute themselves, it would at least get them off the streets, and hopefully the heroin.

      My problem is this: I love my fianceé and look forward to bringing her into the family, and of course I want to be totally honest with her.

      Should I tell her about my brother-in-law being a scouser?

    2013 Abortion Statistics for UK out now:

    https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/319460/Abortion_Statistics__England_and_Wales_2013.pdf

    Would appear that 81% of abortions were carried out for single women.

    76% of abortions were performed on White women.

    1% of abortions were for reasons of risk of handicapped child being born. (Ground E)

    Majority of abortions performed under Ground C: Where mental / physical health of the mother is at risk – 97%.

    37% of women having abortions in 2013 have had abortions previously.

    98% of abortions were funded by the NHS.

    Some suggest abortion figures indicate that abortion is being considered a form of contraception nowadays:

    h**p://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/timstanley/100276138/latest-uk-abortion-figures-suggest-that-abortion-is-being-used-as-contraception/

    Guff – as contraception aims to avoid conceiving, not murdering unborn children – ie. abortion for no valid medical reason.

    The bias for white women could be contributing to the demographic changes in the ethnic make up of the UK which some have been highlighting recently.

    Vote UKIP :-D
