Privileged.

Privileged.

The folks at the Guardian really are so sad that it’s laughable. Having ditched the ailing Labour Party at the fag end of election campaign after the infamous “Bigotgate”, they threw in their lot with the Liberal Democrats and its charismatic if slightly slippery leader Nick Clegg. With Clegg and the Lib Dems having taken the common sense action by joining a Conservative-led coalition rather than some shonky Lib-Lab-Mickey Mouse mishmash, the poor and no doubt wounded Guardianistas feel all betrayed and slighted. Altogether now: Aww. Read the rest of this entry »

Janus-faced harlots

Janus-faced harlots

Lunchtime, blogtime.

First they were in with the Conservatives. Then they tried to crawl under the sheets and cosy up to the Labour Party. First they were saying that they would work with the party that obtained the most votes. Then they started talking to the battered losers and their discredited Prime Minister. First they talked about stability. Then they started talking about so-called “progressive” coalitions involving the SNP, Plaid Cymru and Caroline Lucas’s pet parrot. Read the rest of this entry »

And so, like Brutus, he falls on his sword

Like the infamous traitor and villian Brutus, Prime Minister Gordon Brown has played his latest desperate hand and fallen on his sword. Secure in the knowledge that Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg would never have worked in and for a Government under his leadership, he has effectively laid bare his party’s naked desire to secure an alliance between them and the Lib Dems.

Con-Demned?

Con-Demned?

Early this afternoon it looked as though the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats were well on the way to forging a partnership – thus finally moving towards the eviction of the one-eyed Scottish squatter last seen handcuffing himself to the bannister of No. 10. Read the rest of this entry »

The Lib Dem voter. And butternut squash risotto.

The Lib Dem voter. And butternut squash risotto.

The recent election campaign was something of a roller coaster for the Liberal Democrats and their leader Nick Clegg. First they shot up in the opinion polls and seemingly established themselves as a potential competitor to the big two, only to blow it comprehensively when the time came for the British people to go to the polls. Unlike previous Lib Dem campaigns however, the story did not end there. Read the rest of this entry »

Political Jiggerypokery and PR

Political Jiggerypokery and PR

The chit-chat is still going on about how the cards are going to fall following the recent election results, with the Labour Party resorting to some rather desperate tactics to cling onto power and keep Gordon Brown or any possible replacement safely housed in Downing Street.

Hung, drawn and quartered.

Hung, drawn and quartered.

So, with the campaigning finally over and the results coming in across the country, we have a hung parliament. The Conservatives made some stunning gains in some areas and failed to meet expectations in others; the rise of the Liberal Democrats in the media was followed by a dramatic fall when it came to the reality of the final figures, and some of the worst Labour Party slimeballs – among them the odious Hazel Blears – still managed to retain their seats. Those that were cast aside included onetime Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, Noddy’s best mate Charles Clarke and Dewsbury’s most famous “imam” and expenses fiddler, Shahid Malik.
