Frank Dobson Slams Useless Team Ed and ShadCab

Outgoing Labour MP and former cabinet minister Frank Dobson has slammed Miliband’s inner-circle and the Shadow Cabinet. Firstly he agreed they were all useless,  before changing tone:

dobson“Useless isn’t the right word. They’re … not of sufficient quality and clarity.” He is not impressed with much of the shadow cabinet, either. Calling for a clearer message, he says: “It would be considerably assisted if all the rest of the shadow ministers were knocking lumps off opposite numbers. You need to boil things down to a few simple, short, sharp concepts and say them time and time and time again. It’s no good thinking you can convince the public with a lecture that you might deliver to some postgraduate thing at All Souls.”

Whichever wonkish academic could Frank be thinking about?

        One should question who she is really working for – back then and now.

        Exotic w’hore in O’xford snagging students from our top 1% ? Time to inhale the C’ambridge 5 coffee and perhaps wonder if there was a similar brew bubbling around the time G’ideon, Dave et al. were there.

        Short answer is: Yes, and it should be known about.

        There must be a few other photo’s kicking about which are much more damaging than this otherwise she would have been ignored – by the P’olice and this site. :-)

        Let’s see what the M’ail makes of it, if anything.

          Had you not used that word exotic, I could have run with the whole thing. Don’t disagree but…

          Like Natalia Rowe claiming she charged up to €100,000 for one night, it stretches the bounds of credulity, especially in Oxford.

          I doubt I have ever taken as much as €1,000, or its equivalent, on my trips to The Turf Tavern or The Bear. :-)

          • At the time she was there she would have fallen into that category. O’xford is a different kind of town to L’ondon, and one must not discount the impression which would be made on a naive just out of E’ton ‘oik’.

            Ever wonder why the fact that she was probably supplying coke to the boyz has not been highlighted ? Legitimate question to ask – where did that come from. As she probably dished it out gratis.

            Would like to see receipts to back up her assertions on her fee. Another interesting aspect of that profession is the conspicuous absence of financial and tax records.

            It is not to attack London as a financial centre which compounds it! It is failing so to do when it is deserved. Only then mind! Some will attack it whatever. That is also wrong.

            But to say it cannot be criticised only creates an aura of invincibility in those who lead it. We have already seen where that leads to.

            I cannot believe for a moment that you support the misselling of pensions. Even more, I know (as an absolute) that your moral precepts do not condone the LIBOR scandal (please correct me if I am wrong here!)

            My studies of the history of banking have taken me back for centuries. But two of the top UK banks were started by Quaker families some three centuries ago. Barclays 1690, Lloyds 1765. I have worked for both, more than once. When I joined the first, they still had descendent family members of the component banks in employment. I met a number of them. I was struck by their integrity in every case.

            You honour our Monarch, quite correctly. You appreciate how she has devoted her life to the country. Many deride this now, as you know. Well the same thing happens, or used to, in banking. It is not stupid to think in an ethical way. It is certainly not being a “nice guy”. One has to be hard and very pragmatic.

            But of these two banks in particular: when the Wall Street Crash of 1929 occurred, neither batted an eyelid. No drop in profit from either.

            Tell me how they could be run for three centuries and then fall apart (or almost so) in just a decade?

            BRICS is just a distraction. It will never know what it is like to have such security of direction as it is merely a political construct, divorced from the realities of experience.

            I support our banking system. It is still the best in the world! Bar none! But my support is not unconditional. Where people break the law, they should be brought to book. To misrepresent market rates is unacceptable. Period. Cui Bono?

            My fortune has been to see banking systems in many other countries, both professionally and as a user. I am in touch with three at the moment where I have seen a problem in their services. When I say in touch, I mean at CEO or director level. Surprisingly, I find them to be good guys who actually care about service and brand.

            I do not request payment but some offer and I am happy to recoup my expenses for doing this.

            The point is that now is not really the right time to do this – When a trade war is just starting up.

            The idiots who let in R’ussian money in the first place are firmly and squarely to blame, a lot of the propaganda surrounding this has been flowing quite freely from the inferiors in G’ermany and the perpetrators out East.

            Idealism has a time and place, and during a time of warfare it has no place.

            In any case, why is the UK being cleaned up by the likes of C’arney. You are aware of where he once worked are you not ? ;-)

            Easy way to clean up L’ondon’s financial sector:

            Remove any and all who are connected with R’ussia, and those others that are known to be. Then deal with the E’uropeans.

          You are failing to answer some points here.

          To use your logic, if a Canadian say it is midday when it is actually noon, that means it must be the middle of the night! That is so wrong!

          Secondly, you are taking an IR perspective on this. That is good in IR, I do understand that, but misjudged in commerce, IMO.

          Banks already enjoy a number of advantages. To manipulate LIBOR is not connected in the slightest with a trade war. In a trade war you prefer your own side. In LIBOR fiddling you prefer your private pocket. You do not give a stuff about the trade war!

          It can be argued that if the people who are cheating you and me are purged from the system, that will actually strengthen the banks position in a serious downturn. (I laid it out in summary above but could write a book if any publisher is interested.) If they happen to be Russian then of course they have to go. But if they are English? American? Irish? German? French? Italian? Dutch? Fijian? Does not matter! They must go too. It is not who they are. It is what they are.

          You criticise me for my confessed Idealism. But then you condemn people just for being from one nationality.

          We are not fucking dr’unkard, dissolute, Russians! We are British! And if the Scots say YES then we are English.

          We have a history which stands for something. As long as I draw breath, I shall fight for it with all means at my disposal. ;-)

          • It matters less when it is your own, but significantly more when it is foreigners.

            If one is foolish enough to allow others to take advantage, and at the same time one does not look after ones interests, then there is a problem.

            By my logic if a C’anadian tells me it is mid-day at noon I simply do not trust them. I confirm that myself preferably from a fellow countryman. Even if confirmed, after, I still do not trust the C’anadian.

            It really is as simple as that.

            This does apply to commerce perfectly as E’urope is now finding out and as the UK should have factored into its own plans originally. Read deeply into statements such as: Peace comes before economics when G’ermany announces that, and do not be fool to where escalation of a trade war will lead.

            Assuming the UK is smart the only reason I see for letting C’arney run with this is to provide a suitable scapegoat – C’anada – which can be held to account when things go bad here.

            Be under no illusions that C’anada is any better than the UK – it is only marginally less worst than R’ussia when it comes to matters of commerce. Primarily because it has had a very large number of east E’uropeans and R’ussians settle there in recent years, welcomed in by folk who saw only money and were blind to peace.

    Even if you absolutely despise all Palestinians and celebrate their deaths, put them aside for a minute and remember the other victims of Is*aeli violence who weren’t Palestinians. The British photographer Tom Hurndall was shot by an Is*aeli sniper and later died. They said he’d been killed in crossfire with Palestinians. What they didn’t know is that someone was filming at the time and the footage showed the area was completely silent with no fighting taking place. The IDF’s lies had been exposed and the footage showed the deliberate murder of a British citizen by an Is*aeli soldier.

    And there was James Miller, the cameraman who was also shot dead by another Is*aeli sniper. Again, they claimed he appeared to pose a threat to the soldiers. And yet again there was footage which showed he was waving a white flag and announcing himself as a journalist. The courts here found the soldier guilty of murder. The Attorney General wrote to the Is*aeli government to request that the soldier be prosecuted. Of course they ignored the request.

    And what about the many Brits who were massacred by the Stern and Irgun gangs in the 1940s?

    It’s fine to support Is*ael’s right to exist. But that right has long been extended to doing whatever they like, killing whoever they like and knowing that no one can do anything about it.

      It’s actually difficult to distinguish between hand held and tripod mounted cameras and some portable missile systems at a distance. They look almost the same.

      If you point a camera at a border where fire is exchanged and groups regularly fire missiles such as the Russian made AT-14 Kornet missile at Israeli tanks, you take a big risk with your life.

      The other hazard the IDF face are suicide bombers. So you might think that walking up to soldiers is a passive thing to do. Get it wrong or make the wrong move and they will shoot. It’s called self preservation.

      As a rule of thumb, stay away from soldiers. Don’t walk up to them, point things at them or peer out of windows at them or sneak up on them out of curiosity. Snipers and observers use tall buildings. So stay away from the windows and don’t go on the balcony. Gawking through binoculars can get you killed, how are they to know you aren’t directing mortar fire?

      It’s all common sense. If journalists and civilians didn’t do stupid things, there wouldn’t be so many deaths in war zones.

If I was living in israel, where it is in their consitution to allow christians and Muzzas to be allowed to practice their faith, I would want my government to go all out to destroy those who were trying to destroy me and my family. Fuck Hammas and fuck the idiots who put them in power.

    Without appearing boastful I say I denounced all falsehoods before I was eleven years old by my independent thinking, actually it was earlier than that more like 8 or something.
    Point is, uneducated 8 year old can by power of thought see through insanity of received thought and establish individual thought spheres
    So I do not have a lot of sympathy ( actually none) with fuckwits who spout religious fuckwittery.
    and I would be happy to see a society without any Islamic bullshit in it or any evangelical bullshit.

    Just in case you missed it: they are flying the Palestinian flag at Tower Hamlets Town Hall (aka Taqqiya HQ).

    What next? The black flag of Islam?

    We need laws put in place to make the flying of such flags illegal, to close down the Sharia court system, to close down the parallel Sharia education system and to strip citizenship from anyone who goes to fight abroad as a Jihadist.

    Just watched the Israeli Ambassador getting an easy interview on TV.

    After the bombing of the second UN school and a market in Gaza, this Ambassador was aggressively justifying why civilians and children were killed – yes, aggressively justifying.

    Absolute scumbag of a human being.

    An apologist for a disgusting country.

    And before I get hit with the usual smear of last resort – I detest the country of Israel because of its bullying, murderous behaviour against innocent civilians and children.

    …and apparently the US has confirmed it is re-supplying Israel with munitions.

    So why would any civilised person want to be associated with – never mind be a Friend of Israel.

    Any sympathy for Israel is disappearing as quickly as the body count is rising.

    An unintended consequence might be that the US electorate now wakes up and demands that US policies towards Israel are reviewed – and subservient US politicians put some distance between themselves and the Israeli lobby.

      Jeeeez you are so fucking naive.

      Stop Hamas firing rockets. Over 2000 in the last couple of months. Meanwhile Hamas demands are that izzy and Egypt ( did you get that EGYPT) lift the blockade. Not just Ozzies then?

      Are you stupid or what?

      It was hamas that started the conflict and every other conflict since 2007, they showered Israel with rockets targeted at civilians. Its naive fools in the West like you that give hamas such welcome succour and support.

      The war would end as soon as hamas laid down their arms and engaged in peaceful dialogue, but that is the last thing they desire, they want war and death and the more death the better. It is hamas that uses human shields and fires rockets near civilians in the hope that they will be killed.

      So you would detest the Syrians, and Hezbollah, and ISIS too for the same reason? You don’t mention them, just Isr*el, why do you single out the latter whilst ignoring the former?

      Assad sent Hamza Ali Al-Khateeb back to his parents in a box, the body showed signs of prolonged torture and his genitals were in his mouth, Hamza was 13 years old. The Syrian regime kills, rapes and tortures children; 17000 child deaths so far and yet I have never seen any complaint on here from you about these atrocities. Is it acceptable in your mind for Arab to murder Arab children in such large numbers?

      Yesterday Assad’s air force bombed a school yard and killed 25 children with approximately 100 injured, do you condone such action?

    Great news for my migrant comrades claiming £5billion in Tax Credits

    HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has announced it’s extending the deadline for tax credits renewals by a week, from Wednesday 31st July to Wednesday 6th August.

    The body said it was granting the extra time because of strike action by HMRC helpline staff who are members of the Public and Commercial Services Union, taking place today, Thursday and Friday.

    The industrial action, which has been timed to coincide with the renewal deadline, is expected to cause ‘long delays’ for people trying to renew their tax credits over the phone.

    Get in there comrades.

    “Useless isn’t the right word. They’re … not of sufficient quality and clarity.”
    To be Frank…Ed simply needs to be asked a couple of very elementary self-evident questions. The answers to which he, like most homo sapiens, probably already knows. The current difficulty relates to the fact that he doesn’t know that he knows those answers. Principally because he’s locked inside a political paradigm, concerning the nature of reality. Perhaps the following would help.
    Q1. What is it that humanity is actually attempting?
    Q2. What is the greatest impediment to achievement of the endeavour identified in question one?
