ED Miliband tell the TUC faithful massed in London for an anti-austerity protest that David Cameron is “clueless“. He added:

“They [Tories] leave young people out of work while the bonuses at the banks carry on. They even have a Chancellor of the Exchequer who tries to travel first class on a standard class ticket. It’s one rule for those at the top and another rule for everybody else: everybody like you who plays their part and does the right thing.”

George Osborne tries to bunk First Class train fare on Virgin service

PA 4214490 George Osborne tries to bunk First Class train fare on Virgin serviceGEORGE Osborne’s little PR disaster. Grab a Gregg’s pastry and listen up:

Chancellor George Osborne did travel in first class on a standard class ticket today, Virgin Trains told ITV News. But Jim Rowe, a Virgin Trains spokesman, said Mr Osborne had no direct communication with Virgin Trains staff.

An officer from the Metropolitan Police, escorting the Chancellor, alerted the train manager in advance that Mr Osborne did not have the correct ticket, Mr Rowe said. Once on the train, the train manager informed the police officer that the Chancellor would have to pay an upgrade fare, a request which Mr Osborne’s aide initially refused.

But after asking for a second time, the Chancellor’s aide agreed that the extra £160 would indeed be paid.

Paying upfront is for plebs.

The story is, of course, all about class. You can’t blame Osborne for wanting a table and some privacy to help him work. Class. The word hangs like a dark cloud over the Tory Cabinet…

Tea Party leader says women should not have the vote

 Tea Party leader says women should not have the vote

JANIS Lane is the president of the Central Mississippi Tea Party.

Greetings!

Thank you for checking out our website! It is my privilege to serve as President of the Central MS Tea Party. We are a group of Patriots who want to see our country return to the principles of the Founding Fathers…

It is our duty as God-fearing Patriots to seek conservative Christian candidates to be our elected officials. We are living in a time when ‘these great pillars of human happiness’ are being subverted. Only you, as an individual, can make a difference. When ‘individuals’ join together and become a group of Patriots with the same goals, we can then bring our country back. It will take a lot of perseverence, prayer, fortitude, focus, and unity! Come join the Patriots of the CMTP and make a real ‘change’ in America!! Looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting!

May God SAVE America,

Janis D. Lane

President, CMTP

 Daily Mail proves that Global Warming is a thing of the past, which is niceTHE Earth is no longer going to drown under the weight of melted poles according to the Daily Mail (although, Poles are still obviously a massive threat to the very fabric of some imagined Britishness), which is wonderful news for us all! We can now drive our cars and leave our TVs on standby without fear of making our gill-less children die in a human-imposed watery grave!

The Philippine government has reached a framework peace agreement with the country’s largest Muslim rebel group, President Benigno Aquino says. The deal follows long negotiations with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) to end a 40-year conflict that has cost more than 120,000 lives. It provides for a new autonomous region in the south, where Muslims are a majority in a mainly Catholic country. The MILF is “very happy” with the deal, a spokesman was quoted as saying.

Nick Clegg meets Bono on bended knee

PA 14852309 Nick Clegg meets Bono on bended knee

YOU can forgive Nick Clegg a lot. But then he goes and does the thing that make your cringe: he meets Bono in his London office. If only Nick could be like Bono, saying things to an obsequious audience without fear of having to explain how the great scheme for fairness and peace would work. The journalist / fan / politician nods along. The onderschept popstar prates on. Nick nods and laughs at all the jokes. How Nick would love to be a pop star, a grandees of the platters, living in a stately home or tax haven and talking about distributing wealth and helping the poor . If only he could be like Bono, a stinking rich tax massager who need never explain, just inspire.

The simply Red Singer Mick Hucknell once told us:.

“I’ve said to Tony, ‘You should have waited on Iraq’. He listens.”

Tony Blair was the ultimate pop politico. He had wanted to be a guitarist. He recalls a meeting with President Bill Clinton.

“I like him a lot. We met Chuck Berry and it was a mutual case of ‘Wow!’ Never mind about meeting world leaders, this was a REAL superstar. Meeting Chuck Berry was a great moment for both of us.”

Between 1997 and 2001, Tony Blair’s list of guests at Chequers went:

Sting
Elton John
Bono
David Bowie
Bob Geldof
Mick Hucknall
Lord Attenborough
Joan Collins
Dame Judi Dench
Cilla Black
John Birt
Sir Richard Branson
Delia Smith
Stephen Fry
Kevin Keegan

When Nick Clegg says he wants equality and fairness, he’s an out of touch posh boy. When Bono says it, the politician listens in awe. Poor Nick. Someone give him a guitar…

In photos: The Greek Army played Über Alles as Angela Merkel landed in Athens

IN 5 years the Greek economy has shrunk 23%. Some Greeks believe the country is in the thrall of Germany. So. When German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrived in Athens today, demonstrators shouted slogans, dressed as German World War II soldiers with Nazi swastika armbands, called her a Nazi, compared her to Hitler, and as Merkel’s private plane landed at Eleftherios Venizelos airport the Greek military band struck up that German national anthem (“Germany, Germany above everything”). The past is never far away…

14821871 In photos: The Greek Army played Über Alles as Angela Merkel landed in Athens
Picture 1 of 21

A protestor holds a banner with the picture of the German Chancellor Angela Merkel that reads "wanted" and "war compensations" during a protest in Athens on Tuesday Oct. 9, 2012. German Chancellor Angela Merkel makes her first visit to Greece since the eurozone crisis began here three years ago. Her five-hour stop is seen by the government as a historic boost for the country's future in Europe's shared currency, but by protesters as a harbinger of more austerity and hardship. More than 7,000 police will be on hand, cordoning off parks and other sections of central Athens, to keep demonstrators away from the German leader who is due to arrive today in the Greek capital for talks with conservative Prime Minister Antonis Samaras. .

Epic video of Australian MP tearing sexism a new one

 Epic video of Australian MP tearing sexism a new onePOLITICIANS are all slimy swine and no question, but over in Australia, they’re showing us all exactly we should hand them a smackdown. PM Julia Gillard (who once said “screw you!” to US Congress, so she’s not a woman to be trifled with) went to town on an MP called Peter Slipper.

Now, Peter Slipper is an ordained priest, has been accused of sexually harassing a gay man and is thought to have been rather ‘creative’ with his expenses. However, he’s now at the centre of a storm where he’s had his arse royally handed to him… AND THERE’S A VIDEO OF IT! Slipper referred to another MP as ‘an ignorant bitch’, amongst other comments.

The collected marches of Iran’s Busby Berkeley divisions

WHEN the war with Iran comes, it will be won from the air. The US and her allies will have jets, bombers and space; the Iranians will have photoshop and a way to entertain the Heavens that Busby Berkeley would have loved, had he been a racist nutter with an itchy beard:
