Union Leader Says No Sympathy if Tories are Blown Up

After Labour suspended a Sunderland councillor yesterday for celebrating the bombing of Tories, Dave Hopper, general secretary of the Durham Miners Association, has weighed in:

“There wouldn’t be much sympathy if things like that did happen.”

Things like that did happen Dave. People were killed or maimed because of it, but don’t let that get in the way of cheap shot. With Ken calling for bankers to be hanged and the noisy celebration of Lansley being “shot”, far from fighting against violent political rhetoric, it seems it’s now a stable part of lefty attack.

Jeremy Clarkson was not available for comment.

Mixed Messages

Two weeks ago Team Ed told us that there were only three months to Save the NHS:

Today he has taken time out from tweeting footballers to rather grandly declare that the NHS will be the “defining issue of the next election:

Presumably that election will not be in the next three months?

While the NHS is a no-brainer for Labour, something  tells Guido that voters will be wanting to talking about a few other things. 

Like the economy, stupid…

Time For President Brown to Stand Down

 

With World Bank President Robert Zoellick stepping down on June 30, the successor would traditionally be another American, Guido has a better idea. One wannabee candidate has proved their pulling power by making over £1.4 million from speaking engagements. This man has written weighty tomes on the economic crisis, and claims to have all the solutions. If those plans do not work, he can always full back on the moral compasses given to him by his father. A man who says he not only saved the world and saved the banks too:

Surely it is time for Gordon to stand down as an MP and begin a full-time campaign to become the next president of the World Bank.

Ken Says Hang the Bankers

So what is Ken’s big solution for the City? Well according to his speech to the Electrical Contractors’ Association on Wednesday, he wants to:

“Hang a banker a week until the others improve.”

Is this a step up or a step down from his call to hang Osborne?

A gaffe a week will certainly make this race more entertaining…

Early Bath for Piers
