Harriet Harperson - dangerous lunatic......

The ideological mechanoid pictured above has now - I believe - cashed in on Brown's current vunerability. The raving man-hater is pushing through legislation, which on the face of it, should be applicable to both men and women. But just listen to the mad cow as she describes the legislation in the video clip below. There is a short ad in the first few seconds;
This a barrister and cabinet minister explaining a change in the law. Tell me she isn't unhinged. What a ghastly woman. She typifies the Far-Left's doctrinal contempt for the concept of "human nature". She is the embodiment of undiluted 1970's Leftist campus orthodoxy - relationships between genders, races, ages and cultures, in society and at work, need to be controlled and dictated by the State. Free, Libertarian societies are a dangerous risk, which are too vunerable to the human weaknesses like "merit", "shame", "family" and "tradition". Harriet has conquered and quarantined these weaknesses and emotions and has replaced them with a set of cold, inert rules.

Bloody stoodents.......

....I don't know what the world's coming to!
Now if Tracey Emin had constructed this masterpiece and called it "throne on phone" or somesuchother very, very clever title, we'd be looking at about £350,000 here.

Rick Stein....faux conservationist....

Rick Stein is a cop out. Every time he comes on TV, he always bemoans the parlous state of the fish stocks in Britain's waters. Yet the one and only time I've ever heard him mention the EU - the chief culprit in the fish stocks disaster - was the other night. He is standing outside a smokery in Arbroath waxing lyrical about some smokies that he's holding in his hands, and he says; "...and due to an EU regulation, these smokies can now only be sold in this area.....and that's great isn't it? Because it means that they remain special to the place they have originated from..." or words to that effect. I wonder if the bloke who runs the smokery would think the same?

Personally, I've never heard of such EU laws restricting the sale of foodstuffs to a certain sub-national geographical area and I strongly suspect that Stein was confusing the EU's "protected status" laws which mean the name "Arbroath Smokies" can only be used if the goods have originated in Arbroath. Nonetheless, what a twat; he affects to be a conservationist, yet (wrongly) praises the Raper of the Seas in that dreamy, vague, europhile, fashion-over-substance way, whilst fleets of Spanish trawlers eradicate our fish.
Like Cameron, Stein would undoubtably avoid mentioning "Europe", for fear of being regarded as "ranting". Never mind the facts then........
The sooner we're out of this EU mess, the better.

The present government. By vocation...

Below are the current UK cabinet members listed against their "employment" before they were elected to parliament.

Prime minister – Gordon Brown: Professional student. Lecturer. 3 years at Scottish Television.

Home secretary - Jacqui Smith: Teacher

Foreign secretary - David Miliband: Voluntary sector bureaucrat. Labour policy wonk.

Chancellor of the Exchequer - Alistair Darling: Lawyer

Justice secretary and Lord Chancellor - Jack Straw: Lawyer (3 years), Inner London Education Authority. Labour policy wonk.

Health secretary - Alan Johnson: Postman. Trades unionist.

Defence secretary - Des Browne: Lawyer.

Secretary for business, enterprise and regulatory reform - John Hutton: College lecturer.

Secretary for children, schools and families - Ed Balls: 4 years as leader writer for Financial Times. Labour policy wonk.

Secretary for innovation, universities and skills - John Denham: Quangos and charities.

Environment secretary - Hilary Benn: Trades unionist. Councillor.

International development secretary - Douglas Alexander: Professional student. Policy wonk. Lawyer.

Work and pensions secretary - Peter Hain: Trades unionist. “Anti” campaigner.

Transport secretary - Ruth Kelly: Guardian journalist. Labour policy wonk.

Secretary for communities and local government - Hazel Blears: Public sector lawyer. Trades unionist.

Culture, media and sport secretary - James Purnell: Labour policy wonk. BBC.

Northern Ireland secretary - Shaun Woodward: Lobbyist. BBC. Tory turncoat.

Chief whip - Geoff Hoon: Labourer. Lawyer. Lecturer.

Secretary for the cabinet office and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster - Ed Miliband: Labour policy wonk.

Chief secretary to the Treasury - Andy Burnham: Labour policy wonk. Trades unionist.

Not an engineer or farmer or businessman between them. Geoff Hoon laboured at a furniture factory for a year and Brown the Clown was a journo for Jock TV for three years. One or two more had short stints as journos. Outside of Law, very little private sector experience at all. We are governed by policy wonks and trades unionists with little or no experience of the real world.
Any refutations gratefully received (Wiki was used extensively in compiling the above). I might do a similar list of the shadow cabinet....if I can be bothered. I'd be interested to know how many of our 650 MPs are lawyers

Headache for Labour in Glasgow East....

Here are two of the candidates who are contesting Glasgow East next week;

CURRAN, Frances
Party Name: Scottish Socialist Party
Candidate Address: Flat 3/2, 12 Crow Road, Glasgow G11 7RT

CURRAN, Margaret
Party Name: Scottish Labour Party
Candidate Address: 75 Langside Drive, Glasgow G43 2ST


Now, cast your minds back to the Scottish election last year, where the poor, drunken Scots couldn't work out the "complicated election ballots". Now look at the similarity between the two candidates above. Both have the same surname. Both have "Scottish" and "Party" in the title of their respective parties. The only difference being "Labour" and "Socialist" and they both mean the same thing - "handout".

So, there's a contest between the Scottish Handout Party and the Scottish Handout Party and their candidates; Wee Hen Curran and Wee Hen Curran. And that's before we consider the third Scottish Handout Party - the Scottish National Party.

Polling stations will be open from 11.00am to 11.00pm. I shouldn't imagine they'll see much action before 2pm on account of most of Glasgow East's electors not being, ahem..."early risers". I would imagine that most electors will call in, after having had "the hair of the dog" in some dreadful, grey, box-shaped, pebble-dashed pub, with formica tables and a plywood bar-top upon which stand a depressing array of gas-charged taps advertising Messers McEwans' and Tenants' various carbonated piss.

What a headache for Labour's planners! It conjures up an image of Labour's proposed army of canvassers going from door to door, armed with graphic signs with which to persuade voters;

"Mr McAlchy?"

"Aye...whose fukkin' askin'?"

"Mr McAlchy, I'm from the Labour Party in London and we're here to make sure you continue to recieve money without having to work for it"

"Oooah.....fuken magic! Weer issit, then...thish moneh??"

"Mr McAlchy, first you have to do something for us"

"Errr wadu ye mean...."do sommin" "

"We need you to tick a box on a piece of paper"

"Soonds easy enough!...gimme the paper, cos ah wunt money fur som swally, y'ken"

Canvasser reaches into pocket and produces long plastic-coated sign depicting three symbols, from left to right; a tick, a red rose and a twenty pound note.

"Mr McAlchy, if you put one of these next to the box with one of these in it, then you'll continue to get these"

"Aye, OK....gimme it..."

"No, no, Mr. McAlchy, you have to do this next Thursday at the Polling Station....on the day of the election.....err, next week??"

"Yah fuken Inlish BASTAD ye!!!! Weers ma fucken moneh ye cunt ye???!!"

........sound of clenched fist on cheek, followed by groaning and sirens.

Your humble toad told you so much......

"The radical extension of maternity leave and parents’ rights is sabotaging women’s careers, according to the head of the new equalities watchdog.

Nicola Brewer said that it was an inconvenient truth that giving women a year off work after the birth of each child - soon to be paid throughout - was making employers think twice before offering a job or promotion. "

Give the woman a Nobel Prize. It will be interesting to see how the idiots of "New Labour" respond to this, especially the goon Harman. My guess is more legislation.
The Right isn't losing the battle over the custody of Political Language - because it's not even fighting that battle. How anyone can refer to this ridiculous legislation as a "right" is beyond me. It is a government enforced employment perk and I wouldn't be surprised if it emanated from the Castle of Lies over in Brussels.

Sooner or later we will hear of people naturally extolling their advantages on their CVs as employing Victims gets more hazardous;

"I have three grown-up children and have no wish to have any more...." Trans: "I won't pick your pocket whilst sat at home looking after my baby"

"My wife Mary....." Trans: "I'm not queer...."

"My family have lived in the area for 150 years...." Trans: "I'm white..."

Cue legislation forcing employers alert the authorities over "illegal CVs"

The emperors' clothes

Apparently there are no limits to what the EU achieves. For instance, it is only the existence of the EU which has prevented a war between its members since 1945.

I'm not kidding either;


Look at the scrolling "Did you know that..." section on the left of the page.

I witnessed a debate (Question Time or something like it) where that egregious cow Shirley Williams made that same ludicrous claim, without being challenged. I've lost count of the times I've heard clear falsehoods about the EU's achievements go completely unchallenged on R4 interviews and debates.

There is something worrying about the way in which europhiles go unchecked in making fantastic claims about the EU's achievements. It is worrying because in the event that we ever leave this corrupt and deceitful club, those same people will enjoy having the same platform to make false claims about pitfalls of non-membership.

In this scenario, I envisage claims that every major transport accident, economic downturn, cattle infection or flood, would have been averted had we only remained in the EU.
And just wait and see what happens if Britain's most accomplished liar becomes the first "King of Europe". There will be no end to the bullshit.

This is what happens when you create a victim-culture..

"A Christian registrar who was harassed and discriminated against after she refused to carry out same-sex civil partnership ceremonies has won a key legal battle.

Lillian Ladele, 47, said that she was treated like a pariah by colleagues at Islington council in North London after she said that she could not carry out the ceremonies as a matter of religious conscience. "

Once you go down the road of converting half of society into Victims, these exquisite conflicts are bound to happen. The example above is more a source of mirth than angst. It will have been an undoubted asset for the claimant in this case, to be black woman.

The social engineers who have been busy "correcting" our society to match their sixth-former worldview for the last 30 years, seem blind to the unintended effects that their "rights" create. One such effect is to turn the recipients of special rights into an employment risk.

Which small employer (in their right mind) would take on a girl who is likely to spend months on end sat at home before and after giving birth, all the while drawing a wage for which she does zero work? The legislation that gives mothers employment "rights" - in the overall scheme of things - favours older women. Parallels can be drawn for gays, blacks, disabled etc etc.

The public sector will increasingly be a Victims' refuge. Although, if the likes of Harriet Harman get their way, the State will be on the interview panels in the private sector too. For the Harriets, the medicine is always the same: more invasive, nannying legislation to correct society."Minority rights" create far more problems than they solve and I challenge anyone to sensibly argue against the striking down of nearly all minority rights legislation being a positive measure for everyone.
