Another Foreign Office Minister Resigns

Mark Simmonds, best known for missing the Syria vote because he was busy discussing Rwanda with Justine Greening, has quit his job at FCO. No.10 deny it is anything to do with policy, his replacement will be James Duddridge. Simmonds will also stand down as an MP in Boston and Skegness in 2015. Analysis by Survation of local election results back in 2013 shows that on paper the seat is UKIP’s best chance of landing an MP…

Hammond loses two ministers in two weeks…

    If you know what you are doing and have a susceptible person on the other end it is quite easy to do very bad things. L’ibertarians should be aware of that so as they can avoid, or at least channel such urges in such a way as to avoid causing harm.

    This site is intolerant of anti-Israel comments, in the main.

    So, can Guido give assurances that IP addresses of those making Comments here are secure?

    Well, you know how non-Friends of Israel can sometimes be targetted ?

    Thought this might be of interest to those who don’t toe the line that the terrorists are all based in Gaza…

    If this is the level of Macchiavellian low guile / cunning and Borgiaesque ruthlessness we put up against the external ministries of rest of the world little wonder they eat most of our diplomats before breakfast as pre -prandial digestive stimulation.

    Still he s dutifully written his obsequious request for a good future job reference which will probably be a sinecure in a charity /quango or State milch cow of similar ilk at no doubt greater remuneration than at present.

    As Soviet Communism was considered the world threat of the 20th Century. So the Mozzie threat will ‘define the 21st century’. Problem, unlike the perceived soviet threat which we armed ourselves against, the new enemy is within the gates, taking over without a shot being fired thus far, with the helpful compliance of traitors and ‘fifth columnists’, in politics, media, government etc.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
