Saudi Soldier Demands to Know Why BBC Sacked Clarkson

The BBC’s Jeremy Bowen is in Saudi Arabia reporting on the latest from the conflict in Yemen. There is however only one question on the lips of Saudi soldiers:

He’s their star in a reasonably priced Eurofighter Typhoon…

SNP & Labour: Or How I Stopped Quibbling and Learned to Love the Bomb

Labour have just about sorted out their message on Trident today, despite some confusion from Ed Balls. Meanwhile, the SNP are still toying with Miliband on the issue. “I can’t be clearer,” claims Nicola Sturgeon, while obfuscating on what the SNP will demand from Labour in return for a confidence and supply deal. This is her line today:

“Any confidence and supply arrangement would require the non-renewal of Trident.”

This line was backed up by Angus Robertson on the BBC today:

“There would be no confidence and supply arrangement with the Labour Party if there was a renewal of Trident commitment by the Labour Party.”

So would the SNP vote against a Labour Queen’s Speech – including plans to renew Trident – then?

Sturgeon won’t say, because she doesn’t want to: “get ahead of the election process”.

Yet during the Scottish Leaders’ Debate last night, the SNP leader implied her party would still prop up Labour even if they went ahead with Trident renewal:

“You can beat minority governments on policy issues and force them to change direction without necessarily bringing down the government”

Sturgeon’s deputy Stuart Hosie also confirms that even if Labour voted to renew Trident, the SNP could still do deals with Labour on other policies:

“there would have to be negotiations and we would want to get as many of our progressive policies through as possible”

So the SNP will vote against Trident, but possibly not against a Queen’s Speech that includes Trident, and may still prop up a Labour government even if Trident passes… Everyone got that?

Holy War: Watch Our Boys Blow Up Evil ISIS Scum

 

The MoD say in a statement:

“In the early hours of Friday 27 February, an RAF Tornado GR4 patrol conducted reconnaissance to the north-west of Haditha. An ISIL armoured personnel carrier was located, and destroyed with a Brimstone missile.”

Where’s your God now?

Diplomatic Dave Trash Talks Russia

Boris of Mesopotamia

Despite strict Foreign Office advice not to travel to the region, a Briton with Turkish roots has posed with a Kalashnikov in northern Iraq. Boris has travelled to the region to support the fight against ISIS. Allahu, er, cripes, akbar!

Sources: Blair Has Not Yet Responded To Chilcot Letter

Tony Blair claims he has nothing to do with the Chilcot Inquiry delays, but is he telling the truth? His people clearly state:

 ‘It is not true to say that Tony Blair has caused the delay … On the contrary, he regrets this delay.’

However, multiple sources familiar with the situation have suggested to Guido that whilst Blair has received his warning letter for Sir John Chilcot, he has yet to respond as is currently still seeking legal advice before doing so.

How long does it take a former barrister to find a lawyer? Perhaps he should ask his wife…

At Last! Miliband Finds International Allies for Tax Crackdown
ISIS Sign Up to Labour’s 50p Rate Policy

50p

François Hollande, Ed Miliband and now Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi. The FT reports that ISIS are implementing Red Ed’s policy of a 50p top rate of tax across the one holy caliphate:

“Sajad Jiyad, an independent researcher in Iraq, says that Isis struggles to balance its books, but services continue to function because of the money Baghdad still pays to former civil servants in Mosul. Isis taxes those employees at up to 50 per cent of their salaries.”

It’s a cost of jihad crisis! The caliphate can do better than this. One nation….

Quote of the Day

Miliband is asked if he knows what ‘Yolo’ means by Time Out:

EM“No. What does it mean?

TO: “It stands for You Only Live Once.”

EM: “Is that right? That is a good philosophy for politics! It’s about a sense of adventure and doing what you want. Wow! I’ll use it from now on!”

TO: “Please don’t.”
