compare the meerkat? not any more...

tory bear has already posted re this, but I think it needs repeating - WTF???


'It struck me how racist it was to parody what is now a significant part of the British population in this way.'

if an advert on tv is your biggest worry right now, I'd love to be living your life.

on the other hand, who wants to be a fucking tofu eating handwringing professional grievance monger? cunt.

anyone home???


'No one minister is standing in for Gordon Brown this weekend while the PM is on holiday, Downing Street has said.'

not like anyone would notice the difference...

' Downing Street initially said Lord Mandelson was the minister in charge of day-to-day affairs.
But later a spokesman said it was not correct to say Lord Mandelson had taken over the day-to-day running of government. '

I cant think why...

Labour - 'we dont have enough helicopters after all'


'A Government minister has admitted that British troops fighting in Afghanistan do not have enough helicopters.
Lord Malloch-Brown, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office minister responsible for Afghanistan, is the first senior minister to admit that there is a shortage after public criticism from leading figures in the Army.'

so that would mean cyclops and mandlebum were lying... I'm shocked. :(

polly's in a strop


because those other nasty reporters wont tell the truth about how marvellously labour are doing and they keep saying nasty things about them...

' most correspondents treated to lengthy briefings from Home Office statisticians returned to their newsrooms to write what their politically motivated editors demanded, even if their readers might be more intrigued by the good news on murder than by exaggerated shreds of bad news in a 1% rise in burglary.'

polly, no one trusts these figures anymore because your cohorts within the Party have spun and 'massaged' them for so bloody long. we look at the joke thats been made of the english justice system, where god help you if you dont put your rubbish out properly but you'll get bail if you kicked some poor unfortunate to within an inch of his life. (and then go on to kick another poor c**t beyond that while on bail for the previous.)

so polly, do us all a favour and take your bleatings and whinings away - and in the words of an ex boss of mine, 'f**k off - and when you come back, f**k off again.'

pot meets kettle


constantly furious deconstructs mandy of boys' latest missive here - unsurprisingly, he comes to the conclusion that he's an odious, lying little shit.

cant think why.

thanks for that


'Michael Jackson fans who paid in advance for the singer's UK concerts have been offered their money back or a souvenir ticket as an alternative.
Promoter AEG Live said the tickets feature graphics "inspired and designed" by the music legend, who died at the age of 50 on Thursday.
An estimated 800,000 people paid £50-£75 to watch the star perform 50 concerts at London's 02 arena.
The company will not be printing any further tickets as collectables.
'Magical Jackson'
It adds that the originals will become collectors' items, and feature special images which give them a 3D moving effect. '

'AEG president Randy Phillips said of Jackson: "The world lost a kind soul who just happened to be the greatest entertainer the world has ever known.
"Since he loved his fans in life, it is incumbent upon us to treat them with the same reverence and respect after his death." '

at last - someone voices some sense regarding the burqa


'Shockingly, the Dickensian bone disease rickets has reemerged in the British Muslim community because women are not getting enough vital vitamin D from sunlight because they are being consigned to life under a shroud.

Thanks to fundamentalist Muslims and 'hate' preachers working in Britain, the veiling of women is suddenly all-pervasive and promoted as a basic religious right. We are led to believe that we must live with this in the name of 'tolerance'. '

I have never heard an argument for this kind of thing that rang true to me - it just strikes me as oppression.
but we have to respect other peoples cultures now, dont we??

cyclops forced to testify in Iraq enquiry


'Gordon Brown will be forced to give evidence in public to the Iraq War inquiry, it emerged yesterday.

The Prime Minister will have to answer charges from military commanders that he caused the deaths of British servicemen when he was Chancellor by refusing forces requests for more resources and equipment.

Sir John Chilcot, the former mandarin heading the inquiry, let it be known yesterday that the Prime Minister, his predecessor Tony Blair and former Downing Street spindoctor Alastair Campbell will all undergo public interrogation.'

I hope him and that grinning, gladhanding sack of shit blair are made to fucking squirm as well.

for fucks fucking sake


we havent got a pot to piss in and this unelected one eyed lying HOON brown decides to piss some more of OUR money that we cant afford up the wall so that CUNT mugabe can stick it in his swiss bank account.


Sunday, June 21, 2009


so, it's sunday and grand prix day - I turn on the tv to end up catching the last few minutes of the 'politics show' prior to the start of the gp coverage - to see what can only be described as a haranguing of the (democratically elected by the residents) Doncaster mayor - with the not so subtle intent, it seems, of showing him up to be racist and/or homophobic. and then, the blatant 'jobs are going to be cut - it wouldnt happen under labour' of the presenter - followed up with a strong subtext of 'the people of doncaster were just confused - this shouldnt be happening - we know multiculturalism is a good thing, why are these people voting against it?'

people have blogged before (especially Landed Underclass) regarding how biased the bbc is - I had to say prior to today I personally hadnt seen much evidence to support it.

That has now changed to say the least.

poor the one eyed cunt - cyclops pours his heart out in the grauniad


'the prime minister said he had found it hard to focus on strategic planning'

I'm not surprised, the one eyed mentalist cnut.

how much do you want to bet that slimy little turd mandlebum of boys is whispering in his ear, telling him he'd feel much better if he went away and had a nice little rest?

and I notice they havent allowed any comments on the story either, unlike the last time he aired his views in the grauniad. did you not like what you heard, gordon?

and as for 'said that the internet means that "foreign policy can never be the same again". Because of the way information is now distributed, "you cannot have Rwanda again ... foreign policy can no longer be the province of just a few elites." He descibed this as "more tumultuous than any previous economic or social revolution" and said that "this week's events in Iran are a reminder of the way that people are using new technology to come together in new ways to make their views known." '

do you think? because it's not stopping you from ignoring what the people of this country want. I've just checked - of the two petitions on the no.10 website, one asking you to resign and the other asking you to stay, one has over 68,000 signatures, the other has 102.

would you care to guess which one is which?

the ginger sex dwarf survives... for now


'Former Communities Secretary Hazel Blears has survived an attempt to force her deselection at a meeting of her constituency party in Salford......
"I am at a loss sometimes to know how I got to this place, but what I've had tonight is the first chance to explain properly to my party members," she said.'

er, you what?? exactly how stupid do you think people are? or are you really that staggeringly clueless??you're in this position because you're a greedy, troughing, cheating, LYING bloody hypocrite. so no need to be at any loss, you chipmunk faced shortarse harridan.

Intriguingly, I see she's by profession a solicitor - I had a very interesting conversation with a legal friend of mine the other week when they explained to me the code of conduct for all solictors - including an obligation to act with complete integrity and honesty in every aspect of their lives, professionally and privately - they seem to think that there is a very serious question of misconduct to be answered in this case.
anyone care to make a complaint to the professional standards authority ?

more bleedingheart liberal bollox

in the comments following the latest from the always-superb Met County Mounty here - http://sheepdogsandwolves.blogspot.com/2009/06/point-number-eight.html

once again, the guardianista contingent bemoan the lack of respect for the crim's human rights while conveniently ignoring the fact that the crims are running roughshod over the rights of their victims.

five gets you ten this c**t kaspar has never had his house turned over by the local scrotes or had the crap knocked out of him by a shellsuited wazzock for looking at him the wrong way. t**t.

Ferrari in 'complete dago shambles' shock

it's the rule changes that are at fault for Ferrari's poor form apparently - not just them being shite.


'Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo remains convinced that the "very grey" regulations relating to diffuser designs was the root cause of why former champions like his team, McLaren and Renault have all struggled this year.'

really?? tell that to Brawn and Red Bull.

and I havent heard anyone at Maclaren whining that it's not fair either...

an MP's wife airs their opinions re the expenses row...

...we're all nasty horrible bullies apparently for taking MP's to task re their expenses.
and apparently 'rightwing commentators hate Labour governments, and they were ready to risk undermining public confidence in the entire political system to discredit the Labour party.'

(and once again the implication that if you dont support Labour, the BNP will get in. ergo, if you're not with us, you're standing slightly to the right of Himmler.)


unsurprisingly, it's in the Grauniad... equally unsurprisingly, but pleasant to see, is her getting almost unanimously told where to get off in the comments section.

they dont like it up em mr mannering

mark thomas - who I dont always agree with, but his intentions always seem well founded - has been taking it to The Man again -

'How many constituents feel that their MP is simply not up to the job unless they have a chandelier? And now Elliot Morley has claimed £16,000 for a mortgage that had already been repaid and he didn't notice. What planet do you live on when you don't notice £800 turning up in your bank account each month? Quite clearly, the rules have been broken.
Quite simply, none of us one of us could get away it. When benefit cheats get caught working and signing on, they get punished. They don't form a committee made up of other benefit claimants to debate how they might make new rules to prevent themselves from doing it again. They certainly don't appear on BBC News barking that "they work extremely hard and made a simple mistake."
Nor can an exposed tax dodger offer to pay back money because they are "concerned about how it looks to the outside world", and then walk away with no repercussion.
It is unfair, unjust and profoundly undemocratic. Which is why lawyers acting on my behalf have served legal papers on Speaker Martin this morning. As the chair for the House of Commons Commission, he should take urgent steps to commence a review of the department's actions in dealing with MPs' applications for expenses. These should include an independent audit of expenses and the forced repayment of wrongly claimed expenses; and in cases of fraudulent claims, the police should be called in. Speaker Martin has 14 days to respond. If he does not, I will instigate a judicial review of Speaker Martin's decision, on the legal grounds that public law should be consistent. MPs should not be allowed to be above the law and what is good enough for us is good enough for them.
I'll keep you posted on how I get on.'


this is going to be good...

Friday, May 08, 2009


you lying, troughing authoritarian control freak BITCH.


'In an interview with The Times, Harriet Harman said that revelations about politicians’ claims would damage trust in the mainstream parties and could benefit the extremists. “It does create an anti-politics mood,” she said.
“It undermines confidence in Parliament and fuels a climate of cynicism. The BNP portray themselves as the anti-politics group and the outsiders, and we have to say we are taking action and sorting this out.” '

heres a novel idea - clear your party of expense fiddlers, eliminate bullshit quangos where you take MY money and piss it up the wall so your friends dont have to do any real work, STOP trying to control our every fucking move and dictating what we can and cant say and then, MAYBE, I will consider voting for you again.

but until you do, stop waving the boogeyman of the fucking BNP at us. havent you EVER stopped to think WHY people are turning to them? people are turning to them because you are giving them very little choice. you are not addressing what matters most to them -can you blame the average person for going to the one party that does appear to listen to what they need?

you cretinous shower of bastards.

meanwhile, in the bunker


with thanks to Old Holborn for the original

a great aviation meme

with thanks to Counting Cats in Zanzibar ( http://www.countingcats.com/?p=2242 ) for the original and Landed Underclass for the pointer to it ( http://landedunderclass.wordpress.com/2009/04/11/aviation-meme/#comments ) - here are mine, for what it's worth -

Best fighter (pre-jet) – Hawker Hurricane

Not the most obvious, I would agree. But the Hurricane did the lion’s share of the work during the Battle Of Britain – capable of holding it’s own against the early marks of the Bf-109 and being easier to repair in the field than the Spitfire, with it’s semi-wood and fabric construction lending itself to both easier fixes than it’s all-metal counterpart and also making it in some ways harder to knock down – depending where it was hit, cannon shells could on occasion go straight through without their fuses being set off, not always the case with the metal skinned Supermarine product.
Unfairly eclipsed by the Spitfire, in my opinion. And if the Battle Of Britain had not been won, then would the 8th Army Air Force have had anywhere to fly their P-51s from?

Best fighter (jet) – McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II

The second most numerous jet fighter ever built, it could (and has) done it all (and still does on a front line basis in several countries) – dogfighter, interceptor, bomber, CAS, recon – and bears the distinction of being the only aircraft to be used by both the USAF Thunderbirds and the US Navy Blue Angels aerobatic display teams. Of course, we had to screw things up by insisting the FAA versions used the Spey (great idea on paper – not so good in practice – see here - http://www.thunder-and-lightnings.co.uk/phantom/history.html )

Best Bomber – Blackburn Buccaneer

Eh? Well, for several reasons – in service with the FAA and RAF for over thirty years in total, in some ways still having a better performance than the aircraft that replaced it in the maritime strike role ( it could carry more anti-ship missiles further than the Tornado ). Legend had it that at the annual Red Flag exercises held in the US, it was the only NATO plane that the much more modern F-15’s and 16’s couldn’t even begin to get close to – and by the time they had, the pursuits usually had to be broken off due to lack of fuel. It was said in the RAF that the best replacement for the Buccaneer would be ‘another Buccaneer, with better electronics’.

Pure Sex – Supermarine Spitfire

You can keep your Blackbirds and your Concordes, this is it. Especially the late-mark 22s and 24s with the Griffon engine needing that bulged engine cowling – it’s the aeronautical equivalent of a classic American muscle car, to the point I’m always put in mind of the Ford Mustang car when I look at the Spitfire. To my mind, there’s the same kind of family resemblance when you look at the early and late versions of both machines – the clean lines of the mk.1 and the ’67 coupe, to the look of sheer brutish power of the late war teardrop canopied versions and the Mach 1 – unmistakably the same lineage, but at the same time very different. And then there’s that engine noise…

one down

and it couldnt have happened to a nicer guy. dont let the door hit you in the arse on the way out, damian...
however, as satisfying as seeing the back of this odious little man is, and made all the sweeter by the fact that he's been neatly hoist on his own petard by Guido, you cant help but think Labour apparatchiks are like cockroaches - stamp on one today, tomorrow there will be dozens of the buggers running round your kitchen.
will cyclops take the hint? will he hell. and as for the fact that he apparently had 'no idea'... yeah right. no idea in general almost certainly, but he's regarded as such a control freak that the idea that one of his right hand people would be doing this without Pissypant's knowledge is a bit of a stretch to say the least... now if Dolly Draper can be made to walk the gangplank between now and tuesday it'll be like christmas has come early.


and it seems like I may have got my wish already...

stop. just stop.

you're embarassing us, and you're embarassing yourself.


' "Gordon has invested an extraordinary amount of time and energy in the G20 - he really did travel to the ends of the earth," said one government source of the prime minister's trip to Chile. "But it was worth the effort because it was part of a single process - his mission to save the world and, in the process, to save the British economy." '

less charitable folk might think someone had delusions of grandeur... elsewhere -


'When all the sums are added together, rather than $1,100bn, the new commitments appear to be below $100bn and most of those were in train without the G20 summit.'


'The PM is gravely announcing a $1trillion "stimulus" for the global economy. But it's not the kind of stimulus which Brown has been wandering the world demanding - ie a further co-ordinated boost, involving increased spending or tax cuts by the major economies, to get demand going.'

so why have we just paid however many millions for this g20 thing again?

common sense breaks out in the UK


a newfoundland lifeguard dog has been reinstated over the objections of H&S - good.

ridiculous bloody jobsworths.

I'm reminded of the line used by Douglas Adams regarding the marketing department of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation when speaking about health and safety types - 'a bunch of mindless jerks who'll be first against the wall when the revolution comes.'

"The British taxpayer cannot be expected to pay for the company's losses,"

how liberal are you?

You scored 60%

You are moderately liberal
If you wish to find out more about liberalism please visit mises.org. To find out more about the Libertarian Party's policies, please see our manifesto. Also, you may wish to help us advertise this test with your very own blog badge, below.

We should raise taxes on the rich so we can redistribute wealth to the poor? Your answer was liberal
It is illiberal for people to be taxed at a different rate based on their income. Also rich people are the most mobile members of society. If they are over-taxed they will simply move themselves, their assets and capital offshore. Which will in turn decrease investment in the country.

We should get rid of the minimum wage? Your answer was illiberal
The minimum wage is an illiberal restriction on free trade. It also places an artificial value on the cost of labour which makes it more difficult for low skilled workers to find work, and therefore gain experience and training.

The state should bailout large corporations in financial distress? Your answer was liberal
This is an illiberal incursion on the free market — at the taxpayer's expense. No company should ever receive a taxpayer backed bailout. It encourages bad financial practices and corruption between the state, corporations and unions.

It should be illegal for members of the public to own guns? Your answer was liberal
In a liberal country people can protect themselves as they see fit. Remember if someone owns a gun it does not mean they will murder anyone. In addition it is very dangerous for a people to allow their state to have a monopoly over weaponry and therefore force.

People who hold racist or extreme views should be allowed to publicly express their ideas? Your answer was liberal
To not would be a gross and illiberal infringement on freedom of speech. And it sets a dangerous precedent for further reducing freedom of speech. It must be noted that defining things as extreme or dangerous is a purely subjective activity. Therefore the state will only define things as extreme if they pose a threat to it. But not necessarily to the people.

The state should make people change their behaviour to tackle climate change? Your answer was illiberal
In a liberal society the state will not force any law abiding person to behave in a certain way as this is an infringement on freedom of thought and action. This is an especially acute issue when you consider there is still great debate about whether climate change is caused directly by human action. People should note that the state have a lot to gain in terms of social control from climate change catastrophe. Along with large corporations who will find it easier to cope with environmental regulations than their smaller competitors.

It is wrong for the police to retain the DNA of anyone not serving a prison sentence? Your answer was illiberal
There is no reason why in a liberal society that the state should be allowed to steal the property of a person when they have not been convicted of any crime or are currently serving a prison sentence.

The state should ban people from watching violent pornography? Your answer was liberal
This is an illiberal incursion on freedom of thought. It is not the business of the state to involve itself in the sexual preferences of consenting adults.

It is wrong for democratic nations to overthrow foreign dictators? Your answer was illiberal
It is illiberal, and a sign of gross arrogance, for one state to impose their will on another in this way. These issues are for the people of said state to resolve themselves with their leader(s).

Free market capitalism should be forced on other nations to help create a better world? Your answer was liberal
It is illiberal for one state to impose their way of life on another. A liberal foreign policy involves free trade with all willing participants. It does not involve forcing states to behave in a certain way if they do not wish to.

hazel blears tells it like it is...

...or not. however, there are some superb comments on Guido regarding her leadership bid today... the choicest among them being

'Commendable contribution from a cabinet minister who stands head and shoulders below her colleagues.'

'Delusional does not quite cover the state they are in - is there another word for delusional with knobs on?'

''Our first loyalty is to the british people'Oh I love these lying filth.Yes please be loyal to me by destroying my pension, taxing the arse off me, filling the country with foreigners and then allowing them to reject integration.Please be loyal to me by theiving public funds by the wheel-barrow load.Please fiddle educational standards in order that illiterate kids get qualifications, forcing parents such as myself to fund private education.Please show your loyalty to me by invading sovereign nations which pose no threat to the UK, by way of lies and deception.If you are loyal to the people of this country please fuck off at the double Labour filth.'

but I think my favourite has to be Old Holborns contribution -

'Hazel Blears is a complete cunt, an escapee of a freak show, a demented power crazed dwarf.
She deserves to be kicked to death.'

as someone said - firm but fair.

you'll probably weasel out of it somehow, but for now I'm going to enjoy watching you squirm, you corrupt cow.

honesty in a NuLabour drone?

the sign on Kerry Mccarthy's blog front page reads 'conform & obey'.

ah well... at least some of them are a *little* bit honest.


oh dear - who DO we believe?


hmmm. doesn't there come ANY point with these troughing, corrupt twats where either they or someone from the apparatchik says 'look, for everyone's sakes, go quietly. Now.'

evidently not...

hazel 'sex dwarf' blears

as she's so memorably described elsewhere in the blogosphere, is ripped into here - http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2009/feb/10/hazel-blears-george-monbiot in the Grauniad of all places. Anyone who has the dubious honour of her misrepresentation (she was my local MP for a time when I was resident on manchester) will, no doubt, think it quite fair in its portrayal of her. I've encountered earthworms with more spine.

one rule for me...

Labour peer Lord Ahmed, who expressed his concerns to the parliamentary authorities about Mr Wilders' visit, told the BBC: "This man doesn't have any respect for law. He's doing this for publicity and he's seeking that and getting that."


as much respect for the law as someone found guilty of dangerous driving where someone was killed as a result of it, eh? it also appears he has a peculiar idea of what should be allowed as free speech in a democracy and what he wants to be banned -
