    Blood soaked says:

    Since leaving office, Tony Blair has amassed $70m in blood money. With a million Iraqis dead, hundreds of thousands homeless or in living poverty, and the entire country now collapsing, Blair has shamelessly lined his pockets with blood money.

    With this in mind, I remember his last day in the Commons when he was given a standing ovation (including Cameron who shamefully beckoned to his MPs to also stand) but worse than that I remember the pathetic whooping from the female Labour MPs. It really is fascinating the way these very same MPs who worshipped Blair are now trying to erase him from Labour’s history. The fact is that Blair is completely toxic and every time he rears his head he serves as a reminder of Labour’s grubby and criminal record.

    This is archetypal cognitive dissonance. These whooping idiots worshipped Blair because he delivered them election success and in doing so they voted for every despicable policy including the invasion of Iraq. And now, true to form, these same screeching fuckwits want the public to experience amnesia and forget about the former Labour leader who now strides around the world like the filthy gangster he is. That, among other reasons, is why I have zero respect for these Labour MPs. One can have political differences but still respect the individual. But these grotty arseholes and political whores don’t deserve any respect, because they sold out whatever principles they may have had for power. The shining example of this is the oxygen thief Harriet Harman. Is there a more grotesque creature in British politics than her? She has absolutely no principles whatsoever. Her entire life and career has been defined by rank opportunism and self serving arrogance. The woman who fled a crash by yelling “you know where to find me”, the woman who campaigned alongside p*edophiles, the woman who championed the invasion of Iraq and then shamelessly applauded when Ed Miliband said at conference the war was wrong. She is morally bankrupt, not to mention intellectually deficient.

    Chucky gets Kuenssberg'd says:

    Chucky looked very uncomfortale during his Newsnight interview. Credit to Laura K for being relentless in her questioning, which he clearly wasn’t used to. She even ridiculed him right at the end and his stony face was priceless.

    Day by day, Chucky’s vapid nature and slimy narcissism is being exposed. His is a cautionary tale of believing your own hype and being desperate for fame. All his fumbles, from his lies to his hypocrisy over betting shops to being exposed as editing his own Wiki profile, his fantasy of one day becoming prime minister has crumbled before it ever got going. The secret to that sort of ambition is not to be so obvious about it, but Chucky, being a self-aggrandising moron, couldn’t help himself. All his interviews just showed a slimy man desperate for the top job without having achieved anything of note in his life.

    Even now he probably still believes becoming prime minister is in his future. Everyone else knows it’s not. The image he tried so hard to cultivate has been stripped and he’s been exposed as a fraud in love with himself. The tough treatment he got from Laura K may have sent a message to him that he’s been found out. Poor Chucky. You have to laugh.

    We can reform the England side.

    Italy will beat Costa Rica and then they will beat Uruguay while England will beat Costa Rica. Then we will win the World cup. That is a cast-iron guarantee.

    Jeez can’t this Milliband make his mind up. Yesterday everyone had to have owls today everyone has to have reforms. It reminds you of that dopey owl Pigwidgeon in Harry potter that can’t ever deliver Ron’s message correctly without colliding with something or flying into a window.

    Simple solution for theses sangria riddled costa del sol fuckwits is to apply earlier or just get a passport anyway not just for a holiday.

    I am very annoyed this morning by the arrogant and condescending tone of that Grant Minister.

    According to her if you haven’t got your passport renewed you should be considering a “staycation” says she from sunny Brazil.

    She just does not get it. She is in a well paid (and perked) position of trust and responsibility.

    Governments are not supposed to be gravy trains .

    I hope she gets sacked today for the good of the Nation.

    Hi boss. I’ve calculated that the cost of giving everyone an owl will exceed
    £ 5,000,000,000.

    The costs will be covered by the amount we raise from the tax on bankers’ bonuses we will introduce in 2015.

    Saw this just now:

    The government will wish to recruit more staff to clear the backlog of passport applications.
    Should you wish to apply for a post with a government agency you will need to bring to your interview evidence that you are entitled to work in the EU.
    Acceptable forms of identity are
    1. A current UK passport…

    Perhaps you’re thinking of the goal they scored against England in 1993
    (San Marino 1 England 7).

    Owen's Remedial Economics teacher says:

    As 65 million owls need to be purchased, demand will outstrip supply and the prices will rise.

    Same with houses.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
