    Maqboul the fool says:

    Does Dave care? No, I think is the answer.

      anything that shocks ‘Middle England’ is probably a good thing to be honest.

        Rob Roy says:

        An independent Scottish State with free universities.

          Latter-day Jacobite says:

          Vote SNP, get freedom.
          Vote UKIP, get freedom.
          Vote anything else, get what you deserve.


          • Jim says:

            Voting SNP gives us freedom from what or whom?
            I didn’t realise I was curtailled.
            And what gives us freedom from the SNP?


          • Fruning Graplecard says:

            The SNP desires full membership of the EU. I welcome the right of Scottish self-determination, but the reigns of power will simply shift from Westminster to Brussels.


          • We have the answers says:

            * I like….

            the way you always mis-spell “reigns”. Is that a feminine thing?

          Who is going to pay for them? It will not be English taxpayers anymore!


          • Anonymous says:

            Never was… but you will not be told…as you are another conventional little Englander who swallows the sun or the mail or worse… the bbc and subsequently when we leave you will notice how heavy you tax burden suddenly becomes… with no oil revenue at the least… or those companies with branch operations in Scotland will now suddenly find their profits generated in Scotland will be taxed in Scotland… so… bye bye…

          ….and free prescriptions and free geriatric care for the over 30 s and free deep fried mars bars and arbroath smokies and of course free”aquavit” from the Aberfeldy distillery .

          After all that it s only fair to get free euthanasua thrown in …


          • scot2go2 says:

            it’s strange but one of the main reasons that all these elderly incomers buy property in Scotland is to take up what they can not get in their homeland… that is free prescriptions… free health care… and certain cancer related drugs that ‘nice’ decided are not affordable… in Engerland… and of course with you actually believing the myth of fried mars bars then you have exposed yourself as a sunday sport enthusiast ….
            of course you would rather support an ageing nuclear arsenal or an aircraft carrier with no planes… still…. to each their own…

        Nothing shocks Middle England anymore, not following 17 years of misrule by left wing EU puppets and self seeking hypocritical thieving perverts.

      Good on her for sticking up for her husband and the second best (probably best actually) education minister that this country has been privileged to have.

        Cameron has just demonstrated that PR is more important than substance and in so doing has confirmed to anyone who had an lingering doubts that he will stand up for nothing.

          All politicians care only about what their spin doctors and focus groups tell them,to hell with what it means for the country.They are so shallow and thick,they assume we can’t see through their actions.The political class have complete contempt for the electorate that they serve,very few could do any other career.

      Dave has surrounded himself with Yes women

      Dave says:

      In sacking Mr Gove, I followed my most cherished principles: caving in to pressure from the Establishment, eradicating any trace of conservatism and cuddling up to people who are not going to vote for me anyway.

        Damn right I would never vote for a racist, imperialist tory fucker scum like you. But still bow down and embrace diversity.

      Dave repeats the mistakes of History says:

      John Major did the same 20 years ago, when he appointed, as Education Secretary, Gillian Shephard, herself a former schoolmistress, in place of the abrasive John Patten


      Reading that made me remember that. Gillian Shephard was absolutely useless and caved in to the unions, and it was so that the Grey Man John Major could have a quiet life at the nest election.

        Nicky wotserface will only been in a job for 10 months. When the Lib Dem defectors hand Labour the GE, it will be back to them meddling with education instead of the Tories.

      The Growler says:

      Gover will be back have no fear, will find all the dead bodies just waiting to rise to the surface, like who’s been a naughty little nonce, who likes playing Jolly Rodger, who has got themselves into a very tight fix, otherwise find all the dirty on members of the Cons, then put it to good use. One blot on the landscape who does seem not able to add up, commissioning IT systems which seem to far from being implemented, namely IDS, what’s he got on Dave?

    Hadley "Screaming Banshee" Freeman says:

    Stop oppressing me.

    It’s so sexist that the Daily Mail commented on the appearance of the liberated women who have been promoted in the fight against the patriarchy. I don’t care that the majority of Daily FAIL readers are women they are all just brainwashed sexists to believe that a woman’s appearance matters.

    Yes, in my articles about the soccer world cup I relentless mocked the appearance and clothes of the male commentators but that’s different, I am an empowered and fierce woman so you can’t stop me with your r4pe culture.

    We need to change the culture. It is wrong that men find women physically attractive, especially when men find young women attractive that’s why I support #NoMorePage3 – a woman being educated, , carter-minded, feminist and having a degree in women’s studies at age 38 should be the thing that men find attractive and we won’t stop whining until all men are embarrassed to admit they find physically beautiful Page 3 women attractive.

    David Cameron now has some powerful forces to deal with in the Cabinet.

    Anonymous says:

    Losing £40k obviously has nothing to do with her view.

    Just as Hunt calmed things down at Health after Lansley, without undoing reforms (indeed, continuing them), so Morgan will do the same at Education.

    still walking into darkness says:

    Cameron’s taking the view that if you surround yourself with a pile of shite it makes you look better. Tony Blair did this quite nicely.

    I don’t see any UKIP voters switching back any time soon


    • 29
      The two Muppets says:

      I see the latest polls show UKIP losing support. Come the election they
      will be down to less than 5%.
      Do not forget that a vote for UKIP is a vote for Miliband and Balls .

        albacore says:

        There’s still another year to go yet
        Of piling up of a lot more debt
        No wonder Dave busts a gut to lose
        The election for the prudent Blues
        And Miliband does a faultless job
        Making himself look like a right knob

        No more double-think - a vote for UKIP is a vote for UKIP says:

        And you believe the polls because ….. ?

        Workers vote UKIP...and email Chukky says:

        Read elsewhere today…. breitbart I think,

        GCHQ have the ability to “adjust” online polls (and pretty much anything in t’internet) personally I don’t doubt it.

        A vote for UKIP is a vote for UKIP

    Posible violación de la política que regula los nombres de usuarios aceptables en Wikipedia[editar]
    Eufundedproeutroll, te agradecemos tu interés en Wikipedia, pero cabe la posibilidad de que el nombre de usuario con el que te has registrado viole algunas políticas de la comunidad que son de obligado cumplimiento de sus miembros.

    Los nombres de usuario inapropiados incluyen tanto nombres en claro u ocultos. Wikipedia no permite nombre inapropiados que incluyen, entre otros:


    Username ‘EUFundedProEUTroll’ is apparently in violation of naming username naming conventions at Wikipedia.



    I cannot see the violation myself.

    Vote UKIP :-D


    • 44

      An explanation:

      ‘Lo único que sugiero es que cambies tu nombre de usuario por la imagen negativa que supone el uso de «troll», y sus variantes, en internet.’

      The username – because it includes the word ‘Troll’ – which has negative connotations (as does its variants) on the internet is what is causing the problem. Being recommended to drop the ‘Troll’ portion.

      It seems that thought policing really has lost it.

      That would leave: EUFundedProEU – could work just as well.

      So: Wikipedia appears to be in the business of not wanting anything that is vaguely negative in their user names. Understand for inappropriate, but this is a little nuts.

      In negotiation…

      Vote UKIP :-D

    Not Blowing Whistles says:

    The CIA-linked UK Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) can manipulate Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, blogs and online polls.

    According to documents provided by Edward Snowden, GCHQ can find your private Facebook pictures, censor internet material, send fake text messages, and interfere with Twitter.

    Some of the software allows GCHQ to go in for the psychological manipulation of internet users.

    GCHQ can probably influence election and referenda results.

    The crooked UK parliament has just agreed to a Bill which will allow further surveillance of those opposed to the Mafias which run the UK


    ANGRY PIRATE A tool that will permanently disable a target’s account on their computer

    BOMB BAY The capacity to increase website hits, rankings

    BURLESQUE The capacity to send spoofed SMS messages

    SUNBLOCK Ability to deny functionality to send/receive email or view material online

    UNDERPASS Change outcome of online polls (previously known as NUBILO)

    WARPATH Mass delivery of SMS messages to support an Information Operations campaign

      There's more, much more than mere social meeja says:

      It can do far more than that. Not at all well reported, probably due to security intervention, in the Snowden docs it was also revealed that security logins to all banks from the UK are fully accessible by GCHQ as is the TOR network which is totally controlled by the NSA.

      The Stasi could only have dreamed of such manipulative power over the population.

      Who asked the public to consent to this? Which party’s manifesto was it outlined in?

      Is it too much to hope Guido writes something on this?

      The Growler says:

      What they can do, is monitor this blog and note every internet connection, if they cannot detect it, their little pals in NAS will oblige, that is why Fawksey got decidedly edgy last week, “comments off”.

    I bet she didn’t say that.

      Brian Leveson says:

      She didn’t. Geedo is twisting his headline to make out that she did. It was written by Max Hastings.

      Though I doubt she disagrees with it.

    To be fair, whatever your opinion of Goves policies you can’t really believe he could have continued to be effective in his old job.

    The teaching unions decided they don’t like him. They would simply have continued to oppose him whatever he did. Every single action he ever made would be attacked by the unions and portrayed negatively.
