IDS’s Coke Party

As IDS and Trigger go head to head at DWP questions this afternoon, Guido hears word of a peace offering. Having spent the last year tearing strips off each other in the Commons chamber and on the airwaves, when Rachel Reeves and the Labour shadow DWP team came to the department for a briefing, IDS thought he would ease the tension with a gift. He jollily presented her with personalised ‘Iain’ and ‘Rachel’ Coke bottles. No such gift for Chris Bryant who tagged along, and grumpily tells Guido: “The meeting had been cancelled by them three times already. Not exactly on time and on budget…” And to think they say “Things go better with Coke”.

    Bill Quango MP says:

    For the first time ever the national side, the labour party, has failed to win any of their opening matches.

    Under Ed Miliband’s leadership the Labour party lost out in both the Euro vote and Local election group A matches against a struggling, only 55% fit for office , David Cameron, and against a team FIFA ranked 129th – UKIP.

    Ed Miliband said he was gutted to have to quit so early. “losing the first two means I can’t be qualified to lead the Labour party into the last 2016.”

    There have been calls amongst the left wing press for Miliband to resign and make way for someone good.
    However a spokesman for Unite, the professional labour MP’s association, made it clear that Miliband would be staying ‘for now.’

    “With the Shad-Cab team that he had available , a mix of old has-beens and young, fresh faced, Spaddy youths, we believe that Ed did as well as he could. He tried a lot of new, innovative left wing tactics that sadly, if predictably, just didn’t work out.

    But we believe Ed is building a powerful team for the future when Labour may once again have world class, working class, politicians, like it did in the 1966 Wilson government. ”

    Asked if the influx of highly paid foreign-holiday type politicians into Westminster has reduced the selection of available manual trades types, Ed said

    ‘Obviously this has had an effect. Who wants to go down a mine when you can become a special adviser straight from university? Write a few silly articles for a lefty think-tank. Be parachuted into a safe rust-belt constituency, and become a junior shadow nobody for nothing important on £70 grand plus a year?”

    Ed Miliband faces the Scottish Nationalists in a pointless final contest on Thursday, the results of which are a forgone conclusion.

          Older viewers will recall that Sir Alf had a great team of honourable and proud to represent England footballers – unlike Woy who has to manage a team of feeble overpaid pansies. Not at all surprised they went out early; can’t imagine why anyone would waste their hard earned going all that way just to watch the international sprawling and diving championships.

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
