Labour’s Funny Donation Numbers

Labour might want to give this press release another crack:

“Analysis of Conservative Party donations shows that almost £4 of donations in the last quarter came from donors who have attended exclusive private dinners with David Cameron and other senior Ministers”.

With maths like that no wonder they don’t think they overspent in government…

“Million”, a spokesman stresses.

Labour Still Promising to “Freeze” Energy Bills as Election Pledge

Labour abandoned their flagship “energy price freeze” when they realised the shambolic pledge would keep energy bills artificially high after the drop in the price of oil. Apparently it was only ever meant to be ‘a cap’, despite the party handing out hundreds of tiny ice cubes saying “Freeze that Bill” at their party conference.

It seems the Brewer’s Green literature department did not get the memo:

This leaflet has gone out in marginal seats this week…

With the promise to keep bills artificially high until 2017 a top election pledge…

Top Justin Welby Aide is Labour Sleeper Agent

The turbulent priest Justin ‘Oil’ Welby is being supported in his jihad against Cameron by a Miliband plant. As a member of the House of Lords, disgracefully, Welby is afforded a parliamentary aide and despite the bossy Bishop’s insistence that the church is politically neutral, Jack Palmer is a Labour Party member. Disturbingly, Palmer claims to have only joined the party to “vote for Ed Miliband to be the next leader”. 

This outspoken spokesman considers “Tory rule” a “grim prospect” and says Michael Gove “is a truly terrifying human being”. When this pound shop Thomas Cromwell is not campaigning on the doorstep, he’s tweeting away urging people to ‘support #Labour’. To the Tower! 

Chair of the IPCC Claims Comms “Hacked”

klima_pachauri420

Rajendra Pachauri, the chair of the ‘respected’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, has claimed that his emails, mobile phone and WhatsApp messages have been hacked by unknown cyber criminals who used his computer devices to commit “various criminal activities”. His claims come after a 29 year old female employee at the Energy and Resources Institute, an environmental wonkshop of which Pachauri is Director General, lodged a police complaint against Mr Pachauri claiming she had received “unwanted” physical advances, emails, WhatsApp messages and handwritten notes from the chair of the IPCC.

An article in India’s Economic Times that reported the claims, has been removed from their website following an injunction from the Delhi high court:

Pachauri Injunction

It’s not the fist time emails sent from Pauchauri’s computer have got him into hot water – he has been accused of using his TERI email address to conduct IPCC business. Perhaps he was hacked…

How Journalism Works

The Huffington Post are desperately trying to spin for Balls, resorting to real barrel scraping tactics:

Tax Experts on Receipts/accountancy Needed

I’m looking for a good tax expert who could help for a potential piece, aiming to debunk the Daily Mail’s suggestion that Ed Balls is a “total hypocrite” as he hasn’t asked his window cleaner for a receipt, despite suggesting it would be right to do that for odd jobs…

Contact Person: Asa Bennett

Publication: The Huffington Post

Deadline for responses: Date: 17/02/2015 Time: 2:30PM

An accountant that will say the opposite to reality? Try PWC…

Meanwhile, on the World at One, Rachel Reeves just totally contradicted Balls. The Shadow Chancellor said on Sunday:

“The right thing to do if you are having somebody cut your hedge for a tenner is to make sure they give you their name and address and a receipt and a record for the fact that you have paid them.Over my life – have I ever given people a tenner and not got a receipt for it? Probably yes. Since I’ve been involved in politics and Treasury matters, absolutely I think it’s really important to have a record.”

Today Reeves says the exact opposite:

“It’s not always that easy to get a receipt… it’s not the wrong thing to do.”

Who speaks for Labour?

1,000 Complaints and Counting for #100DaysOfUKIP

Channel 4′s race-baiting mockumentry is getting the full treatment. According to the Guardian:

“Ofcom said it had received 731 complaints following Monday night’s broadcast, which used actors alongside real life documentary footage for its fictional portrayal of Britain under Ukip rule. Channel 4 said it had received 250 comments about the programme from viewers. It did not specify the nature of the comments but it is likely that the majority were critical.”

You can complain to Ofcom here, should you be so inclined.

Axelrod: Ed Is No Obama

It is 95 days since David Axelrod has bothered to mention Miliband on Twitter, the PLP are sharpening their knives and Labour’s six figure strategist has let slip that he is done with campaigning. Today Axelrod earns his dollar by telling the Guardian that his star British client “falls short of Obama”:

DA: “I had been spoiled. The thought of starting over with someone new – and almost certainly somebody who would fall short of Obama – was unappealing.”

Guardian: Would he put the Labour leader into that same category?

DA: “I think Obama’s a once-in-a-lifetime candidate. I can’t think of another person who I would put in his category in my experience of consulting. So I wouldn’t put that burden on Ed or anyone. I think Ed is a smart, earnest guy.”

The Axe was then asked for his six word summary of Labour’s election message. He replied:

“The promise of fixing Britain and creating jobs is that it says nothing about raising wages or economic security. That’s what’s fundamentally missing. If you are willing to proliferate zero-hour contracts and encourage policies that undercut wages you may claim that you’re creating jobs but you are also creating jobs that don’t support families. The question is do you have economic policies that are going to promote living wages, put people who are working hard in a position to support their families? Are you making education and training accessible to young people or are you going to make it so costly they are burdened with debt when they leave? The Tories just don’t look at the British economy through the lens of everyday people. They don’t have a kitchen table philosophy of economics and that’s why the recovery hasn’t reached kitchen tables around Britain.”

That’s 145 words. In the same interview Axelrod admits “my colleagues” deal with Labour rather than him. No kidding…
