Labour Policy Announcement Achieves Widespread Coverage


  1. 1
    Will of St Ratford says:

    ‘Tis unnatural,
    Even like the deed that’s done. On Tuesday last,
    A falcon, tow’ring in her pride of place,
    Was by a mousing owl hawked at and killed.

    I could have done with this type of distraction when I was busy blowing up the economy.

    Mexican government boss forced to quit after web cam records him having sex in his office (after telling colleagues he was in an important meeting).

    A group of owls is called a Parliament.

    Tim Yeo-Yo says:

    Given it was a useless policy announcement made by a useless individual it’s probably a good thing that the owls made the headlines.

    Labour truly is the party for fuckwits.

    Scary – Owen Jones is advocating for ‘hope’.

    Tim Yeo-Yo says:

    Are you sure he didn’t say hoop? I hear he likes hoops. He’s allegedly fond of tubes too.

    Hiding his Tube in a hoop is his favourite game.

    Yes, always remember to say you must have been hacked when someone tweets something that backfires.

    Wish I’d thought of that.

  14. 14
    EeeYepBlowing Whistles says:

    And this parliament – must be the most ridiculed, pathetic, despicable, misguided, corrupt, fraudulent parliament this country has ever witnessed …

    As for this country’s leading political ‘lights’ – well i think the lights went out back in 2003.

    A collective group of the most slovenly, lazy, corrupt, money-grubbing bone idle ‘chancers’ – across the political divide ever.

    It’s a Turkey S’hoot – for the British Public against the three stooge parties.

    I am still surprised that Miliband married.

    I didn’t think he had the wit to woo.

  18. 18
    EeeYepBlowing Whistles says:

    Here’s something to put to the useless MP’s across the board befor their school summer recess on July 22nd – ask your MP if he is aware of QMV and put it in clear writing to him / her that ‘i do not consent to being suborned under any Laws, Regulations, Acts, Statutes or EU diktats in respect of QMV and i require that you acknowledge this letter in your own personal handwriting by friday 4th July 2014′.

    IPPR stands for Labour! says:

    You post excellent, witty and in-depth stuff guido about Labour’s failings. However, it needs to go further. Tory supporters such as myself get ourselves into a daily frustrated and feverish state about how Labour are sllowed to get away with Iit all the time and the Tory government gets blamed for all the necessary and harsh decisions that they have to take to get us back on track and restore this country to a great independent powerhouse.

    I got so angry last week at Ed Balls on telly I kicked my telly off the stand and I smashed two of my best plates as well. I can’t stand Labour at all. Absolute tossers.

    Britain has to simply get voting tory again like for Maggie. There is no other way.

    My wife and I are going to live abroad if Labour win again. We already have ferry to France booked for 8 May 2015 9am. We’ll see what happens after that!

    David Owlslerod says:

    That dork, Miliband.
    He makes a speech like a gasbag. I think he may be a flake. Goddam dweeb.

    And where can I get a Jack-in-the-box sirloin Swiss and grilled onion burger in this goddam faggoty country?

  30. 30
    David Owlslerod says:

    And if you guys at the rapid rebumming, or whatever the heck you’re called now, can’t come up with better false flags than this then you need to bring a big cardboard box to work on Monday. Pack it full of your possessions. Climb into it. And I’ll chuck it off the fourth floor you waste of space Oxbridge, la-di-dah, I can hold a teacup, nanny taught me which spoon is for scraping mould of the stink in’ frog cheese, jodhpurs under your combat pants, faggoty, trust fund waste of carbon, assholes!

    The Owl and Pussy! says:

    Well we dont want Milishit in for 5 years. Can you imagine? We’d end up being signed up to every EU policy known to man. At least Cameron and Hague can stand up to Brussels. Whereas Nigel Farage and his German wife just rake in EU cash and enjoy Brussels beer!

    Tapsell is right, what Blair did outstripped Nixon and he got defrocked. Thousands of people died at Blair’s hands under false pretense. He’s in the same league as Milosevic.

    Why are you mentioning that Farage has a German wife , many of my mates in the army had german wives , may I suggest you try insulting them ,they would shove your head up your slimy arse .
    If you imagine the spineless collaborators Hague and Cameron ever stood up to Brussels then you are obviously living on some other planet ,they are among the most treacherous EU arsehole suckers of them all ,for the simple reason it is within their power to do something about it , yet they are too afraid .

  74. 74
    Reimer says:

    Eddie Mair on ‘PM’ seemed to be urging Ed to raise his game by highlighting this bit of avian whimsy and a new poll that gave 40% of respondents preferring David M to Ed (as well as 60% thinking Ed is not a PM in waiting).

    I’m surprised that many people other than politics junkies could still recall the brother whose abiding appeal I can only surmise rests upon his arrogant radiating of entitlement and sense of superiority, as opposed to Ed’s far more pleasant crapness. Even Mandelson on last night’s ‘Newsnight’ was damning him with praise so faint you could clearly see his disdain through it.

    Interesting the opprobrium which is being kicked up in certain circles about some of his associates but he has taken care to get letters from them disavowing any previously held views.

    The fact is that the rules on this make these shenanigans necessary if one is not to be disadvantaged against the very people one is fighting.

    How wonderful it must be for these “haves” to look down their Pinocchio noses at the “have nots” for attempting merely to attain a level position from which to argue their case…

    It is a pity that the FN have completely lost the plot : If they were just a bit more negotiable then the large French bloc in EFD would have been awesome.

    Picking up a few of the non-Inscrits was a smart move.

    Even though the politics is slightly different – looking forward to seeing the double act of Farage and Grillo chew up the EP. Should be a pop-corn-tastic time ahead.

    ECR have got Finnish National Socialists in their midst – seriously unpleasant folk. And ECR don’t give too much of a toss about what Dave utters either.

    Open their doors to chavs ,they are poor because they are stupid, therefore their children will be stupid and uneducable, it’s hereditary.
    It isn’t their fault they were bred by labour to undermine the quality of the indigenous population in preparation for the coming mass immigration, a few changes to the welfare system would see them die out within a generation ,if there is no more free housing for ‘singool muvvers’ ,and child benefit only payable for children born in wedlock the problem would be solved very quickly.

  104. 104

    French intransigence is legendary. Marine has actually managed to shift the ground slightly from her father but not nearly far enough.

    Farage’s success may well strike her that she has missed a trick. So there is a momentum to follow here. But in organisations like this, one may only move at the speed of the slowest. And OMG are some of them slow! I despair about ours but they are angels by comparison (note to self: do not get carried away here. Self-response: too true old son! :-) )

    There is a wonderful symmetry for the Non-Inscrits though. Clearly, one needs to go beyond the minimum to avoid being held hostage by any one group or even one N-I. This he is doing. It is another enormous feather in his cap.

    Agree that interesting times lie ahead.

    Most importantly: Vote UKIP :-D

    There are two critical problems with FN:

    i) They will be discredited by the F’rench left: Some of the ‘rac!st’ attacks that have been happening in F’rance being blamed on the right look more like handiwork of the left. That is a similar pattern to what has been going on with G’olden D’awn courtesy of S’yriza.

    ii) They may be backed by the K’remlin.

    The one F’rench NI which UKIP have picked up should be watched carefully: She might be SVR.

    If Le Pen has the strength – she may need her father to do this – it would be good is she could straighten the party out and then approach EFD.

    Post below on !taly’s change of position wrt Juncker may help that. In order to calm down the pan-europa drive for Federal Monarchy pressure will be needed from the major European nations in the EP to moderate Juncker.

    Key is to consolidate the democratic legitimacy of the Euro-Pres office – part of that will be opposing it and EUCO’s moves to go down the pan-europa path.

    A good demonstration of demos would be to perhaps remove Juncker in the next few years and replace with Schulz before he can do any real damage, and before the next EP elections. That would also confirm the power of the EP itself which needs to happen over the next few years also.

    It is a pity that G’ermany is not on board: It would be good if they saw sense and changed course though. The social problems which are now becoming real economic problems there are very worrying and wholly avoidable.

    It will be up to Britain (through UKIP) but mainly !taly, F’rance, P’oland and S’pain (eventually) to change EU direction. The other member states should fall in once they realize what is going on and one hopes ignore the Siren calls of R’ussia.

    Even though UK will not and should not remain in for Federalization, assisting Europe in that way as opposed to Cameron’s destructive antics, will pay the UK large dividends in the future.

    Schulz, only because he did come second in the Presidential race, and also has been quite vocal about the undermining of democracy that has been going on with the Spitzenkandidaten shenanigans.

    Am not a fan of S&D or Schulz’s specific politics, but as a politician he is effective, and has recently demonstrated that he puts democracy first and values the Union.

    Also, he is not a pan-europa man: His ideas on Federalization are much more in tune with Briand’s.

    The only real objection that is legitimate about him is his German nationalism baggage. That would not be good right now, but if F’rance can de-polarize then looking ahead it could be a very good thing. Not for an entire term, but if Juncker has to step down early, as a replacement Schulz would preserve demos until the following election.

    Am only looking at political realities: Personally would prefer Verhofstad more, but he was not the clear second, and I do not think he would be able to hold the Eastern and Central European States together if they got restless. That is something which Schulz could do, and may be future reason for an early Juncker exit.

    Roy Hodgson and assorted failures involved in the England team are now pretending they performed well and that the exposure of their inadequacies is a misforture they are sad about but which is solely due to them coming up against a ‘world class’ opponent. Their bank balances say otherwise. None of them are suffering. None of them are patriots. None of them really worked or tried as hard as they should have.

    Russ!a didn’t bother enforcing the agreement to get the CW out of Syr!a, and the UN can’t do ‘jack’ because R’uss!a veto’s even thoughts of resolutions.

    Lots of CW (Nerve agents) were removed and have been dumped in the Med. (No country would agree to take them and dispose – at any price.)

    Assad has only been using a little bit of chlorine lately – no mustard or nerve gas etc. Old School stuff.

    In !raq – the CW plants which have been captured will be inoperative: Even if the plant still works, what is there will not be usable.


    Won’t be much there, but given how ISIS operate one would not be surprised if they syphon compounds from old munitions and dump in a reservoir. That negates the assurances of ‘no threat to security’ that have been offered.

    If you think the French FN have lost the plot take aloof at the last election results ,the EU might just implode because of them ,they are much better placed than UKIP because of proportional representation.

  184. 184

    They have lost the plot with their allegiances and some of their professed values.

    Their tone of politic has set them up for direct conflict with F’rance’s militant left, who will likely seek to discredit them.

    If they could straighten themselves out and enter EFD – with M5S and UKIP that would give the group a very powerful voice. FN’s valid political objectives are in line with EFD’s but their extreme aspects and possible ties to R’uss!a render them toxic all round.

    Do not think that current FN reflects Mar!ne’s true vision, or is an honest reflection of F’rance either.

    Sorry, you lost me. What does poverty have to do with being able to pass the necessary entrance exam for grammar schools? My family were poor as church mice in those days (my dad earned 8 quid a week as a caretaker and my mum worked in one of the local factories for a fiver a week), but I managed to scra*pe through the 11+ and got myself into the local grammar school. Many of my fellow pupils came from similar backgrounds. Thick chavs should by definition be excluded. No pass exam – no entry.

    Working class children are having their education destroyed by the disruptive, vicious, underclass benefit brats ,now this idiot wants to impose this trash on the few remaining grammar schools.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
