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…”

          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.

      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.

    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.
