McCluskey Backtracks - Predicts Labour Landslide

Labour's Offworld Manifesto

Labour's uncosted manifesto has received a thorough financial kicking from people/organisations with some knowledge/understanding of how the real world works.

Paul Johnson, director of IFS, said:
They are looking at raising an awful lot from companies and high earners. The chance of getting £50bn are pretty small. It seems to us is that if they were able to raise that amount that would take tax burden in the UK to its highest level in 70 years."
John O'Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
"This entire manifesto is based on the clearly absurd belief that businesses can be repeatedly hammered with massive tax increases and crippled with regulation without any wider impact on the economy, jobs and investment.

If even a handful of these disastrous ideas were implemented it would mean misery for the many and employment for the few.”
Ironically the coup de grace was delivered by that tired old union dinosaur, McCluskey of Unite, who doesn't think Labour has a cat's chance in hell of winning and said that holding on to 200 seats - a loss of 29 seats and its worst result since 1935 - would constitute “a successful campaign”.

Fair enough, Corbyn and co want to drag Britain backwards; why not back to the 1930's?

Labour's Faceless Drones

We are all faceless drones under Labour!

Labour's Uncosted Manifesto Launch

Despite it being leaked last week, the Labour manifesto will be officially launched today.

The oft repeated phrase "fully costed" has been used in the build up to the launch by party bigwigs. Except it isn't, McDonnell has admitted that the figures for nationalising water haven't been worked out yet!

Labour Candidates Disown Unicorn Manifesto

Labour candidates are promising Labour voters they will remove Corbyn after the election in a desperate bid to win support on the doorstep, and are disowning the manifesto (even though it has yet to be officially published).

One Labour candidate described the manifesto as “childish”, as per the Telegraph:
Those of us who are realistic about this know we can't stand on the manifesto that has been produced by the party so we won't mention it on leaflets and on the doorstep.”

One senior Labour candidate said:
"This is nothing more than an expensive wishlist. Some of it may be harmless but the rest of it reads like a 10 year old's letter to Santa Claus."
Another, fighting to hold onto a marginal seat, said:
"You could promise unicorns for everyone, none of this is going to happen.

It's a ludicrous document, it won't serve Labour MPs well on the doorstep and the public have largely stopped listening and taking us seriously anyway.
How can voters trust people who stand for a party for which they neither support the manifesto nor leader?

Corbyn Pulls Out Of Poster Campaign Launch

Chaos abounds within Labour, following the leak of its 1970's manifesto.

Labour To Drag Us Back To The Seventies

Labour's leaked manifesto appears to have fallen through a window in time from the 1970's, as it proposes taking us back to the "good old days" of a.o.:

- Nationalisation
- Beer and sarnies for union oligarchs at Number 10
- Wage caps

Hummus and Falafel For Victory Party


As per Guido Fawkes, Jeremy Corbyn’s son is planning a “hummus and falafel” victory party at Number 10 Downing Street if his father becomes Prime Minister.

How very "middle class Londonesque" of them!

I am rather concerned about the lack of quinoa though.

Corbyn (aka Monsieur Zen) To Remain Leader Even If Labour Defeated

Jeremy Corbyn (aka the self styled Monsieur Zen) has stated that even if Labour is defeated he will remain as Labour leader.

Well then, let's see how that works out in reality!

Labour Loves Marx

John McDonnell, Labour's shadow Chancellor, has come out in support of the theories of Karl Marx as espoused in Das Kapital.

Voters have a clear choice vote for economic policies that are relevant to the 21st century information age, or vote for policies designed for an era that has long since passed and that have inflicted economic misery on millions in the countries in which they were imposed.

Labour In Denial Over Local Election Results

Having been trounced at the local elections, Labour are of course blaming the media but are also claiming that it doesn't matter.

Meanwhile UKIP, having seemingly been wiped out, need to wake up to the fact that now we have Brexit their raison d'Γͺtre has ceased to be.

Mugwumps United

Boris Johnson called Jeremy Corbyn a "mutton-headed mugwump", which is rather ironic given thta one year ago Nicholas Soames called Johnson a mugwump as well!

The dictionary definition is:
"A person who remains aloof or independent, especially from party politics." But as it rhymes with "chump", it can be used to mean "idiot""

Is Nicola Sturgeon a Laughing Stock?

Nicola Sturgeon appears to be becoming 'laughing stock' over her claim that the general election is not linked to independence.

That at least is the view of Ruth Davidson (Leader of the Scottish Tories).

A laughing stock?

Surely not!

Commies Back Labour

Blair - The Sequel

Just when you thought it was safe, up pops Tony Blair advising people not to vote Labour but instead to vote Liberal Democrat or Tory where the candidate is not committed to a "hard Brexit".

For good measure Blair has also said he is considering returning to politics.

My advice is simple, stay where you are obviously doing the most good namely acting as a Middle East peace envoy.

Oh, wait....

The BBC is Evil and Corbyn Is Donald Trump

Jeremy Corbyn's brother, Piers, has come out swinging in the first day of the general election campaign.

He has called the BBC "evil", and described Jeremy as being like Donald Trump.

Usually, towards the end of a gruelling campaign, people and parties start to go mad. Labour has decided to start insane in the hope that they will be normal by the end of the campaign.

Good luck with that then!

Labour's Insanity

Labour continues to self implode, forgetting the lessons its has been taught many times before in the past; namely that the British people will not vote for it when it lurches hard left.

Those that repeat the same mistakes, without ever learning from them, are insane.

No Early General Election

Labour will have to endure Corbyn for a quite a while more!

Unite Dinosaurs To Piss In Very Small Momentum Pond

It appears that Len McCluskey (the dinosaur in charge of Unite) has decided that he wants to be the largest pisser in a very very small pond.

He and his lackeys from Unite are (according to reports) working with Momentum (the organisation that gave the world Jeremy Corbyn "leader" of Labour) on taking over Labour and affiliating Unite with Momentum's re-engineered Labour.

This plan of course means the destruction of Labour as a credible political party. However, what does that matter to McCluskey is he ends up being the largest pisser in a very very small pond?

Scottish Independence To Set Economy Back 10 Years

Scotland's economy would take up to 10 years to recover if the country became independent, according to the SNP's top economic adviser Andrew Wilson (who heads up the Growth Commission set up by Nicola Sturgeon to examine an independent Scotland's economic prospects).

This therefore begs the question why on earth does Sturgeon want independence?

Maybe she feels it is better for her to be a large fish in a very small pond (leading a Scotland that is out of the UK, out of the EU and out of NATO), rather than a small fish in a large one?

Corbyn Denies Supporting Scottish Referendum

Now that Sturgeon is reportedly going to give Theresa May an ultimatum wrt Brexit and Scottish Independence, Corbyn now claims that he doesn't support a second Scottish referendum.

All of which is entirely irrelevant, as May will veto any referendum during Brexit.

Philip Hammond Takes Us Through The Looking Glass


The Tory Chancellor (Philip Hammond), for reasons best known to himself, has decided to increase class 4 NI rates (ie increase taxes) on the self employed in yesterday's Budget.

Labour, for its part, are criticising this increase in taxes.

We truly have passed through the looking glass!

You Say Teresa, I say Theresa - What's In a Name?

A wee snafu occurred in the "carefully" choreographed visit to the USA of Theresa May, when the White House issued a couple of press releases misspelling her name as "Teresa" (by happenstance the name of a UK glamour model).

Whilst all and sundry are quick to blame the new administration for the cock up, it is worth remembering that the US has form wrt cock ups such as this.

In 2009 Hillary Clinton gave Sergei Lavrov a mock "reset" button, symbolising US hopes to mend frayed ties with Moscow.

However, he said the word the Americans chose, "peregruzka", meant "overloaded" or "overcharged", rather than "reset".

Thus it is not just the new administration that is incompetent, but apparently parts of the American civil service that do the grunt work for the administration of the time.

Name tags all round!

Another False Hope Shattered - White Paper Ruse

The announcement also wrong footed Corbyn, a double whammy by May!

The Supreme Court Brexit Ruling - A False Hope

The Supreme Court has rules that Parliament must vote on whether the government can start the Brexit process and trigger Article 50.

The Remain camp is flush with the sense of "victory", yet their flush will not last long as this is nothing more than a false hope.

The court has also ruled the Scottish Parliament and Welsh and Northern Ireland assemblies did not need a say. A clear victory for Brexit, as the devolved governments won't be able to derail the process.

Additionally, it should be noted that the court stayed well clear of giving a ruling on whether Brexit should go ahead.

Brexit Secretary David Davis has promised a parliamentary bill "within days" (quite possibly tomorrow), and that bill will be a bare bones simple bill indeed. It is expected to be passed by the Commons within a fortnight.

Theresa May has also brought forward her deadline for triggering A50 to mid March.

Like it or not Brexit will occur, as per the wish of the British people, irrespective of law suits and whinging by those who didn't muster enough support to remain in the EU!

Momentous Change - May Nails It

Theresa May, speaking at Davos, is quoted by Reuters:
"Let us not underestimate the magnitude of that decision. Britain must face up to a period of momentous change, it means we must go through a tough negotiation and forge a new role for ourselves in the world, it means accepting that the road ahead will be uncertain at times."
That is absolutely correct and, rare for a politician, honest.
