Vicious Tories 264

We do not have a parliamentary system which can hold a government with an absolute majority to account, even when that government only gained 37% of the vote. This is a salutary video for all of us, but particularly my fellow SNP members who think that being on House of Commons committees will make a big difference. Watch it from 16.32.30 where Paul Flynn starts to explore the links between Liam Fox, Adam Werritty and Matthew Gould. As he threatens to uncover hidden truths, he is shouted down by Tory MP Robert Halfon and forbidden from speaking by Tory committee chair Bernard Jenkin.

The Tories will be even worse in this parliament.

Halfon has today been promoted to Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party and given a seat in the Cabinet. He is a really nasty piece of work whose political career has been sponsored and financed by a very sinister figure named Poju Zabludowicz, who works closely with Mossad. It is appalling that Zabludowicz should be able to place his puppet into the centre of government, and shows yet again that money can buy power at Westminster, every time.

It is amusing that Cameron has been forced to put David Mundell into the Cabinet as Secretary of State for Scotland. Also interesting that in the present state of opinion Cameron was not able to put in a colonial governor from the Lords or an English constituency. But whatever else may be said in Mundell’s favour, nobody has ever described him as highly intelligent, I suspect not even his mum. So it will be interesting to see how he manages his extraordinarily sensitive brief.

Labour equally had no choice but Ian Murray – which means as a shadow cabinet member he will have to stop pretending he is opposed to Trident. As anti-Trident rhetoric was the thing that saved Murray (plus disgraceful media attacks on his SNP opponent), by forcing him to become pro-Trident Scottish Labour will make a strong bid to have no MPs at all.

    Blue collar conservatives flashing down the street
    Pointing their plastic finger at me.
    They’re hoping soon my kind will drop and die,
    But I’m gonna wave my freak flag high . . . HIGH!

    You have obviously overlooked my question.

    Re Nepal: have you done more than merely complaining on here about the £50 million being inadequate and, now, hinting at Israeli baby harvesting?

    Have you, for instance, yourself contributed financially to one of the Nepal appeals?

    A simple yes or no would do!

    The Gospels say charity ought to be done anonymously.

    Matthew 6:2: “Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.”

  • lysias

    My point is that it’s wrong to challenge people to answer whether they have given charitably, because, if they have, it is improper for them to answer truthfully.

    Richard Gage, AIA, is a San Francisco Bay Area architect of 25 years, a member of the American Institute of Architects, and the founder and CEO of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

    (, a 501(c)3 educational charity representing more than 2,000 degreed/licensed architects and engineers who have signed a petition calling for a new, independent investigation, with full subpoena power, into the destruction of the Twin Towers and the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 on 9/11.

    More than 17,000 non-A/E signatories include many scientists, attorneys, and other responsible, educated citizens in the US and abroad. They cite overwhelming evidence for explosive controlled demolition.

    I suppose in your eyes the scientists and lawyers are nutters as well.

    I trust Cameron is having a splendid birthday, Craig. Many happy returns to him.

    In the same way as there is no law which says that architects and structural engineers cannot be nutters, so also is there no law which says that scientists and lawyers cannot be nutters.

    Pour rappel : at least one very eminent British scientists believed in fairies and several regularly took part in spiritualist séances.

    Looks like Habba is using an anonymous proxy. Thesedays you can get an anonymous proxy service for free, albeit they are often slow or unreliable; or you can pay as little as five quid a month for one, which will also encrypt your data to a standard that even GCHQ and the NSA are still trying to crack; or you can milk the tax payers to fund your neferious activity online.

    I’ll let readers decide which method Habba is using.

    “In the same way as there is no law which says that architects and structural engineers cannot be nutters, so also is there no law which says that scientists and lawyers cannot be nutters.”

    Jeez,It’s like trying to have grown up conversation,with Jim Murphy,just as Jim would say the SNP are all nutters and Labour wouldn’t lose one seat in Scotland.

    You mirror him in the fact that anyone doubting the official narative,must be a nutter.

    Give it a rest Jim/Habb.

    Various Eminences and other Useful Idiots have been waxing indignant on here about how the Conservative Party could presume to govern Britain having gathered only 37% of the vote (and an even smaller percentage of all eligible voters). They have accordingly challenged the “legitimacy” of this government. Indeed, even the blog owner has written in this vein.

    In the light of this, I wonder if the same Eminences and Useful Idiots – and, indeed, the blog owner – will support, on this blog, the intention of the new government to make it a legal requirement that strikes can only take place if a certain minimum percentage of all trade union members concerned have voted in favour.

    Don’t all rush for your keyboards at the same time! 🙂

    “I also see on RT that Agent Cameron has no intention of letting in any of the boat survivors in the Med. He’s found a handy little opt out. Shades of Tony Abbott there.

    ‘Nuclear option’: Cameron uses ‘opt-out’ to fight EU’s refugee sharing plan Prime Minister David Cameron has invoked a rarely used opt-out to European Union (EU) asylum policy in Britain’s fight against a proposal to evenly distribute refugees across member states.

    Well you see, Mary, that’s why people negotiate opt-outs when negotiating international treaties – because they may come in handy one day.

    To be noted that all EU treaties (including any opt-outs) are agreed by unanimity.

    I went to RIBA to hear Richard Gage. Excellent talk. Who should be sitting at the back? David Aaronovitch! Consulting his gadget.

    RIBA, AIA and Aaronovitch attack Gage

    Aa in the JC needless to say. Anything to sell a few more copies of Voodoo Histories!

    “Do you believe in fairies then?”

    What a reply,wow you really won that debate, I wonder if David Cameron could use the above sentence to win his EU in out referendum.

    Maybe Putin Obama and other EU leaders could solve the Ukrainian crisis with that wonderful one liner.

    Happy Birthday Cameron Murray.

    “Now We Are Six”

    When I was one,
    I had just begun.
    When I was two,
    I was nearly new.
    When I was three,
    I was hardly me.
    When I was four,
    I was not much more.
    When I was five,
    I was just alive.
    But now I am six,
    I’m as clever as clever.
    So I think I’ll be six
    now and forever.

    Now this looks promising,and getting off to a flyer,can’t be a bad thing.

    Scottish National Party MPs are already plotting to bring down flagship Conservative legislation by courting Tory backbenchers, The Telegraph can disclose.

    Nicola Sturgeon’s Westminster MPs want to block the so-called Snoopers’ Charter by courting “libertarian” Tories who have previously opposed Theresa May’s terrorist surveillance plans.

    They also believe they can gather enough cross-party support to kill off Tory plans to repeal the Human Rights Act and replace it with a British Bill of Rights.

    I thought I was hearing things on the regional news when they said the new Portsmouth to Gosport ferry built in Croatia at a cost of £3m belonged to the Falkland Islands Company.

    ‘Tis true.

    Incidentally a shipyard in Portsmouth that was capable of building the ferry has been seeking work. Crazy isn’t it.

    Never going to happen. The SNP know it. This is bullshit perception management dressed up as politics. Business as usual.

    “Never going to happen. The SNP know it. This is bullshit perception management dressed up as politics. Business as usual.”

    Christ if the SNP and their supporters were as cynical as you,they’d have never gained a single seat.

    Thankfully hope triumphs cynicism.

    The point of it is to at least try, and to be seen trying,you may not achieve the goal,but tell me oh cynical one, who else is their at Westminster to oppose the Tory slash and burn agenda?

    Not Labour that’s for sure they signed up for the Tory cuts.

    Lets put it this way the SNP said they’d oppose the Tories slash and burn agenda long before they won 56 seats.

    But for you oh cynical one its just a SNP publicity stunt.
