Starmer to Miliband: I Like You, Just As You Are
Former CPS Boss Favourite for Holborn Safe Seat

The former CPS Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer – said to be the inspiration for Bridget Jones’ lover Mark Darcy – has been glued to Miliband’s side of late. Not only is he undertaking a  legal review for the party for free, he was on the leader’s table at Labour’s recent gala fundraiser. He’s been a loyal voice on the airwaves for a few months now.

As revealed in yesterday’s Sun on Sunday, Keir is the front runner for a very safe London seat. Tomorrow, veteran Labour MP Frank Dobson will officially announce he is standing down and Starmer is Labour insiders’ favourite to be the next MP for Holborn – home to lawyers and the High Courts. It seems Starmer’s brown nosing could be about to pay off.

“Wait a minute… nice boys don’t kiss ass like that.”

“Oh, yes, they f**king do…”

    Our left wing putsch is complete:

    “Evan Davis to take over from Paxman as Newsnight anchor”


    We are now well placed to control the attitudes of those who think they are bright but really are stupid enough to believe that the BBC is unbiased.
    And timed well for the election too.

    Witty Monker says:

    So a senior ‘impartial’ public figure during the Labour years was actually a closet Labour man?


  11. 11
    Just says:

    Mumsie and Dadums named him after a former leader of the labour party.

    Obviously has ‘socialist Hunt’ in his DNA and written through him like a stick of Blackpool Rock.

    Ghost of Lady Thatcher says:

    So let’s see the NHS, the legal profession, the teaching “profession”, the police are all in the hands of Marxist Pilgrims and Labour Luvvies?

    Only one in five white Britons votes Labour but the polls predict a Labour landslide?

    Anyone worthwhile with a serious interest in public service will inevitably be a Labour supporter.

  19. 19
    Fishy says:

    So, Starmer de-cloaks and emerges as fully fledged Socialist.

    Could this be the answer to puzzling rule that when a Guardian journo hacks a phone, it is in the public interest…but when a journo works for the sworn enemy, the evil Murdoch, they go down?

  20. 20
    Mycroft says:

    Could this be the same person of that name that when in high office refused to act on numerous reports about a certain Mr. J.Savile of Yorkshire regarding some ‘impossible to believe’ accusations about him being nearer to Satan than Saintly…

    Who then had the audacity to make headlines saying ‘failure to report child abuse’ should be prosecuted.

    So this over-weening f’ckwit on the one hand does sweet FA when he had the power to and then says those that don’t (and presumably didn’t… ie himself) should be prosecuted.

    So we first discover the man’s a c’nt, a useless c’nt, worse than that he’s duplicitous c’nt and now we find he’s a left-leaning, elitist, useless and duplicitous c’nt.

    Britian’s Got Talent.

    What have the Labour Party, through Watson been very involved with. Nonce hunting. Watsons commentary, is not about evidence, allegations or here is a victim wheres the justice. Its about a lack of investigations in the past.

    Is Keir Starmer supreme wizard of the Nonce Investigators?

    At least Mr Starmer is actually a member of the normal working classes who has made his way up the greasy pole by dint of his hard work, honesty, fair mindedness and integrity and not just another lefty placeman.

    E L Whisty (Head Groundsman) says:

    An interesting opinion. I was employed in the public sector for many years and started out as an idealistic youngster who eventually realised that Labour was run by an elitist bunch of middle and upper class hypocrites. I strongly believe in the need for effective and compassionate public services and welfare provision. I also believe that most Labour politicians are self obsessed, dishonest, ambitious shysters who care almost entirely about themselves.

    So, in terms of your argument, you would have to conclude that I am not worthwhile.

    Which would make you a twerp.

    Thanks, we have been looking for an example of the ‘opposite of a tautology’.

    Bill Quango MP says:

    Is he a good choice to be a responsible person in public office?

    Well on the one hand, he decided Newspaper seller Ian Tomlison didn’t deserve an inquest after the plod smacked him one, and he later collapsed and died.

    Then he insisted the bloke who tweeted he was fed up with airports and would blow them up SHOULD be prosecuted, despite the obvious lack of any serious intent to commit any type of terrorism act at all.

    But on the other Stammer was the man who said Vikki P and Chris Huhne SHOULD stand trial for generally being lying toerags.

    So…hard to call real…

    Its a funny thing, but I used to watch Newsnight. At least once or twice a week.
    But a few years back it had become such a pointless program I just stopped.

    And so did most people I know. Those that used to watch a bit of Newsnight before bed, just did something else instead.

    Now no one I know watches it.

    I’ve jolly well printed a picture of our new aircraft carrier, and a picture of the carrier I scrapped, and stuck them together as a montage so it looks like we’ve got two aircraft carriers, and then I’ve drawn some aeroplanes on them to show what they’d look like if they had planes, and I’ve added some photos of all the troops I’ve sacked and tanks I’ve had scrapped and I’m going to send that montage to that chappie in Moscow. By jove, that’ll scare the nasty little blighter, what what?

    You’re all safe with me! Now, time to shovel £billions of foreign aid in the direction of some 3rd-world dictator who hates our guts.

    Another Oxbridge buffoon. Great, put him next to the other useless pile of self-serving PPE trash. As far as Labour are concerned, this is what ‘Representing the People’ is all about. They’ll ram ‘multiculturalism’ and Race down our throats, but when it comes to actually representing ‘Little White Man’ they cannot even do that correctly. Any bets this guy is also a millionaire who’s donated substantial amounts of money to the Labour Party? Buying Peerages have moved from the ‘Lords’ to the House now. It’s so patently obvious, it’s actually above contempt. Fk ‘em all.

    70 You vote for him – you know it’s right! Don’t want to vote for one of those k*w*e*rs from Oxford or Cambridge (Cambridge – you know, where all those right-wing spies came from: and as for Oxford!). No, dear, you vote for wotshisname: he’s not one of those ‘see-how-the-wind-blows’ men: he’s a man of principle. He’s the one to look after people like us, people with first Degrees from Leeds, and further Degrees from Oxford (Yes, Oxford: you know, where they refused Maggie an Honorary Degree). He’s ever so clever, you know: not just a Barrister, but a Q. C…
    Yes, dear, ‘Queen’s Counsel’, I know. But he’s ever so republican really, and at heart – allows his Driver (I nearly said ‘Chauffeur!’) – to call him ‘Keir’, you know.

    Oxbridge but not PPE if WiKi is right:

    Starmer was the second of four children. He was named after former Labour Party leader and socialist Keir Hardie.[3] He was educated at Reigate Grammar School. He gained a 1st class degree of Bachelor of Laws from the University of Leeds in 1985 and as a member of St Edmund Hall, Oxford, a degree of Bachelor of Civil Law from the University of Oxford in 1986.

    These public sector Labour types are just entitled to rule over us eh? The new aristocracy, same as the old one….

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
