#PFL Explained

keep-calm-and-go-to-a-boozy-lunch-2

The concept of a Nigel Farage “PFL” – proper f**king lunch – should not come as a surprise to regular readers. What was that about, asks Emily Maitless innocently on Newsnight last night:

Well from Guido’s hazy memory, lunch with Farage usually consists of: “two Bloody Marys, a bottle of white, two bottles of red and a cheeky port.” Last time Nige even paid….

Corbyn: Miliband Was Brilliant, Voters Were ‘Racist’ and ‘Confused’

With Liz Kendall reaching the 35 votes needed to get on the ballot overnight, thanks to the backing of Gloria De Piero, spare a thought for Jeremy Corbyn, her leftist rival for the Labour leadership. On the eve of nominations opening, Corbyn took to Newsnight to tell Evan Davis that Ed Miliband did really well, UKIP voters are racists and Labour lost because they weren’t left-wing enough and the voters were ‘confused’:

“Ed Miliband did very well on zero hour contracts, did very well on rights at work. Those issues, brilliant. The problem was underneath it was the party was offering austerity-lite underneath it.”

“UKIP is a devil-may-care vote, it’s also motivated to some extent by racism within it.”

“People were very confused to some extent at the election to what was on offer, the Labour manifesto was actually very good. I agreed with it.”

When in doubt, blame the voters. Corbyn went on to say that he had no problem with a 60% state.

Guido suspects Evan Davis was taking the p*ss with his “under a Corbyn government…” gag.

Farage Hits Back at “Westminster Bubble” Carswell

Douglas Carswell MP and Ukip leader Nigel Farage

Just when you thought the war was over, Douglas Carswell fired another rocket over the UKIP border post on Saturday:

“I think some of the tone we deployed, for example, the comments about HIV, were plain wrong. Wrong on so many levels. Not just wrong because they were electorally unhelpful, but wrong because they were wrong.”

This morning Farage himself hits back at “many in the Westminster bubble” who criticised the comments:

“Though many in the Westminster bubble were outraged by my comments about the impact of Health Tourism, and appalled that I mentioned those with HIV as part of that problem, what was clear was that the general public did not share that outrage.”

Seems UKIP now consider their only MP a member of the Westminster bubble…

President Incriminates Himself on Hidden Tape

Oh dear, things are going from bad to worse for President Harris-Quinney. Now a Tory councillor, despite being booted out of the party, he has been secretly recorded bashing the gays on a visit to the Kremlin of all places. Pink News have the tape:

“I am pleased to say that from a climate of fear that had been created by the LGBT lobby, as a necessity of support for same-sex marriage, we successfully ensured that a majority of Conservative Members of Parliament did not vote for same-sex marriage, and the Conservative Prime Minister was forced to endure the indignity of passing same-sex marriage only with the support of opposition parties.”

CCHQ are having their revenge after Harris Quinney’s ‘vote UKIP’ election stunt:

“Ben Harris-Quinney is a homophobe and a menace. This sort of vile politics has no place in modern Britain. He is not even a member of the Conservative Party, and he should be sacked as a Conservative Councillor immediately.”

Ouch…

Quote of the Day

Charles Clarke says Cameron is the most successful PM for over a century…

“Under Margaret Thatcher the Conservatives gained 99 seats. They lost 211 under John Major, gained one under William Hague, quickly and wisely got rid of Ian Duncan-Smith, gained 32 under Michael Howard and have so far gained 133 under David Cameron who, to the great surprise of many (including senior Conservatives), has turned out to be the most electorally successful Tory leader since 1900.”
