just because...


Actually a favour to me mate Pete who asked for this photoshop!


Hmm, I really, really, really don't know what the unions and staff are trying to achieve by striking at BA.

The airline itself is already a basket case with a huge pensions bill to cater for, falling passengers and risgin bills.

The staff have one of the best benefit packages in the industry so why are they trying to bring BA down to its knees?

What is the point of striking for benefits when at this rate there won't be a company left to give you any benefits in the first place?


Well none from the Labour Party.

Oh yeah, sure they are now saying that they should have listened when over a million people marched on Westminster in protest at the Iraq war and they should have listened as the BNP gained council seats on the issue of immigration but on the main subject of economy, by God have they not learnt.

After listening to Harriet witter on in the House you'd of thought that maybe Labour would have finally grasped the concept of intelligent spending...obviously not.

You may have noticed that Harriet had a few jokes for once, why?

Well she has appointed comedienne Ayesha Hazirika as Director of Communications of the Labour Party and Deputy Chief of Staff to the Leader of the Opposition for a bargain price of £55,000.

Yup, money that is well spent...

Now I like Ayesha, having known her from her days as a DTI press officer but c'mon surely there are better ways of spending £55k?

Oh and I suppose I should mention that she was appointed Harriet's SPAD in 2007 as well, not that it's related in any way whatsoever.

So Dave has managed to annoy the backbenchers in the last two weeks?

It's a dangerous game he is playing. Unlike Labour, Tory backbenchers are very efficient assassins when it suits them and quite a lot of them no longer play the discipline game that was the conservatives' trump card in times past.

Eventually a few will break cover and the games will begin.

Hey ho, something more interesting to write about rather than the micro-management of State.

Not sure- apparently David Laws is very aligned with Michael Gove about education but the most attractive policy of the Tories will probably fade away.

I still think this is a trap by Mandy, what Dave should do is get the Treasury to give him full figures of the mess then go to the country and say "this is the bill, I need a full mandate to deal with what the country has inherited from the last government". Unfortunately I can't see Dave having the balls for that.

If the Clamergoon alliance is going to work then I immediately want to see two things - 1) The immediate repeal of the Civil Contingency Act and
2) Immediate order to the Civil Service that any dictats from the EU will be interpreted in the national interest rather than gold plated. When it comes to DEFRA, the order should be: you protect our food sources or you're fired!


Listen Dave, if the Libs want to play these games, screw em.

Go to the public and say we tried, we tried to get the country on the right path, unfortunately those disgraceful heirs of Mill double-crossed us, the country, on a menial and puriel grab for power from a third party that managed to lose seats - so much for new politics


Those mendicious c**** are just concerned about power, not about democracy

I think I'll join Guthrum in tapping fingers, looking around as we wait to see what deal comes out today/tomorrow from the posh boys.

Here you go

It seems that Scotland now doesn't share anything with the rest of the union

So instead of letting them getting angry about being controlled by London then bizarrely signing to unelected officials in Europe, how about federalisation.

Scotland can control it's own 'domestic' policies, get its own tax, be responsible to the people of Scotland.

England can have its own Parliament - hell it's mainly conservative looking at the map - same domestic tax.

Energy, defence, finance (eg banks, markets etc) come under national.

Oh and if the Scots complain about Oil, you can have that on condition that you pay back the money given to you when you bankrupted yourselves chasing the slavery economy

HT to the wife for suggesting this!

As we await the invevitable bullshit from tossers like Simon Heffer may I point out a couple of things -

Cameron has done an amazing thing - biggest turn for any Conservative opposition, bigger than their beloved Thatcher's party.

The margins in England at least were tiny, a 1-2% swing extra could have seen a clear majority for the Conservatives.

Last point - what's a decent remover of superglue cos I'm sure Gordo is currently doing the locks!


so near yet...

As this election limps to a close it is now clear that we are in Hung Parliament territory.

A few thoughts

1) The BBC this morning has completely ditched any pretence to neutrality. I have had to turn over to another channel because the open sneering at the Tories would lead to me getting a new telly - I wonder if by breaching its Charter this means that everyone can refuse to pay their licence fee?

2) How depressing is it that despite everything there were still enough idiots (29%) to vote for Labour? Client state in action.

3) The Tories should stand firm against Lib Dem demands. It has become clear that the "third" way is not acceptable to the UK electorate.

4) How on earth did Zac Goldsmith win?

5) How on earth did Sadiq Khan keep Tooting?

6) Why can't potential voters tell the time? The poll is open from 7 in the morning to 10 at night, if you can't get there in time then are you sure you have the logical reasoning to vote?

7) So close! Ed Balls nearly went and scrapped in with 1,000 majority

8) Tom Harris and Douglas Carswell comfortably in yay!

9) The markets are going to be fun for the next few weeks and keep an eye on the credit rating agencies.

10) I think there should be an in-depth investigation into postal voting - in some areas, the stench is powerful.

oh and

11)There will be another election within six months - God help us ;)

Tom Tom is doing Star Wars guidance voice-overs.

Here's one of the recordings


So from 7 this morning this is it.

I will urge anyone who reads this blog to vote, it doesn't matter who you are for or even if you want to spoil your ballot paper, it matters that you have turned up and registered your view.

Much has been made of Friday seeing a hung Parliament, personally I still think Cameroon will be heading to Buck House with a majority but if disaster happens then what will Nick do?

If the Lib Dems sacrifice principle for power (what them? Nah, they'd never...oh hang on...) then I would like to see the voters hang them by the proverbials in the inevitable next election.

I find it inconceivable that the Lib Dems would allow Cleggy to bolster the Tories as their views sit more comfortably with Labour. However, how - if the polls are right - can they justify propping up a party that put us into this mess in the first place and came third in the popular vote?

The other thing that springs to mind is the lot of Fate. Labour's been hugging a liberal ever since it became clear that this was the only way to keep power.


But what if the fates decide differently?

It is not impossible that Lib Dems could become the official opposition AT the expense of Labour.

Could the curse of Jonah extend all the back towards his own party?
