What Was It About The Hoplophobic, Race Hustling Fantasist That First Attracted Labour?

Like I keep saying, if liberals are the smartest people in the room, how come they keep falling for obvious hoaxes?

Didn't the idea of a British city with a death toll of Saving Private Ryan proportions strike anyone as a little odd?

Apparently not, in fact, rumour has it they only started to get suspicious when she claimed a ninth family member had been gunned down by Elvis with David Beckham driving the getaway car.

Other than that, there was no reason to suspect anything:
However, documentary makers have discovered that most of the people she had said were dead are still alive.

Gordon has even been seen chatting to some of them on Facebook.
Maybe they got better?

Actually, I think we dodged a bullet there: at least she didn't blame it all on our Eurocentric concepts of 'life' and 'death' and demand a huge grant to serve the needs of the Undead Community.

Mind you, in other respects she's perfectly well qualified to be a member of the Labour party:
However she later emailed the corporations to say: 'I have lost three family members and five very close friends who I consider as family. I realise I may have used words which could be seen as misleading and I do regret this.'

She'll go far.

But What If MI-5 Robbed Grandma...

Liberals write girly plays about crusading liberal journalists fighting for the public's 'right to know' but it turns out that 'Freedom of Information' is only a good thing where it involves counter-terrorism or commerce. Once the topic is something that could embarass liberals, all bets are off. Consider this latest example.

The left will have to find a new argument after decades spent maintaining that robbery with violence is just something invented by the Tory Press to shift papers. And then there's the chance to check if the cops shows on TV are right, and most gang members are middle-class white kids...

Like I keep saying, liberalism can only win by fraud or force. Ordinary citizens reporting stuff that actually happened is their worst nightmare.

Quote of the Day

It may that those who see them on the news will find something distasteful in a minister trying to go about his business being booed, shoved and barracked by a collection of angry demonstrators, many of whom seemed to be untroubled by the pressures of full time employment.

That's the fault line in modern politcs: between squidy left of right of centre Tories on the one hand and faeces-flinging howler monkeys on the other. Liberals think the NHS is a winning issue for them, but with patients starving to death in hospitals, they may want to rethink their strategy of jamming their fingers in their ears and singing 'The Red Flag' every time someone critcises the system.

All the ideas for fixing the NHS are coming from the right. Then again, all the ideas for anything much are coming from the right. Progressives don't actually seem to want to progress anywhere, and instead the Labour Party has turned into the political equivalent of a Seventies bar.

All of which, as ever, proves Cameronism is garbage. There's the obvious point that the sleazy, split the difference, somewhere in the middle wheeling and dealing doesn't really work when your opponents are crazier than an LSD abusing hatter with post-traumatic stress disorder, but there's something deeper going on.

The Tories have, no matter how haltingly, pushed forward with a conservative policy, and the left has exposed itself as a bunch of screeching maniacs. Forget Special Ed's constant attempts to launch Even Newer Labour, these lunatics are the authentic face of the modern left and someone as smart as Cameron keeps telling us he is would be making sure the Labour Party own them.

To the point: liberals aren't having a meltdown because they can win in the marketplace of ideas. Conservatism wins every time it's advanced with conviction and vigour and to the extent that the left is now starting to lose ground on one of their core issues, it's a perfect rebuttal to the apologetic cringe conservatism of the 'respectable right'.

Confirmed: Hoplophobia *Is* A Form Of Insanity

Police take on the menace of fifty-something World War II re-enactors....

Hey, why does that sound familiar?
Mayor: Drebin, I don't want any more trouble like you had last year on the southside. Understand? That's my policy.
Frank: Yes. Well, when I see 5 weirdos dressed in togas stabbing a guy in the middle of the park in full view of 100 people, I shoot the bastards. That's my policy.
Mayor: That was a Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar, you moron! You killed 5 actors! Good ones!
Still, it strikes me that it's a lot of messing around about supposed weapons that are as expensive as hell, but also completely useless and can't even be fired.... kind of like the average cop.

One key difference between World War II re-enactors and cops: the re-enactors are only pretending to be jackbooted thugs.

Re-enactors Vs Cops, sort of like National Socialists Vs Nationalised Socialists.

The jokes write themselves, but the key points are this: a car as a public place? Does that mean the council will someone round to clean it for you then?

Plus, what's with the police's position? The gun that's no longer actually a gun was so dangerous it had to be destroyed, but only after this guy refused to be bullied into accepting a caution on a bogus charge. In other words, the gun TNLAAG was never a threat in the first place, the filth wanted to destroy historical artifacts purely as an act of petty spite and vengance. Like Julie says, at this point what exactly is the difference between these guys and private-sector gangs?

Cutting their budget isn't enough: they deserve an ASBO.

The Left Own It

Now that Fabio Capello has reacted to the FA trying to dictate management decisions to him by resigning, I'm beginning to think that maybe the critics were right and he never really understood our crazy Inglish ways. Surely every one knows that the tradition is to suck it up and keep collecting the cheques right until the inevitable implosion, then wait 12 months and write a book explaining how everything would have gone great if it wasn't for those meddling kids?

Capello was placed in an untenable situation where he was given a big job to do then hobbled by backseat drivers determined to score an admiring profile in the Guardian, so he bailed out and told the PC clowns the equivalent of 'you broke it, you bought it'.

Why don't more people do this? He was smart enough to realise a bunch of scum weasels wanted to exploit our national team to score PC points then try and offload the inevitable consequences on him as the guy at the sharp end.

Hey, no wonder The Dave has come out against him: that's practically the perfect summation of his MO. Check what happens to welfare reform. Or education. Or health. Or.....

Of course, this is further proof of what I keep saying: no, The Dave is not a political genius. If Harry R wins the Euros then nobody will remember The Dave's role, but if it ditching the manager and the captain four months before a major tournament doesn't work out so well, Dave's new friends on the left may just mention it once or twice...

Victimhood Thunderdome

Two victim groups enter, one group leaves.

Personally, I'm thinking of starting a sweepstake on what happens first: dawn raids in Brighton or the BBC admitting that incidents like this may shed some light on why Christians might just be a little hostile to handing over their Churches to you-know-who for their little ceremonies.

Reminder: The Dave Can Screw Up Anything

This India thing: how incompetent do you have to be not to be able to give money away?

And that's not the best of it.
Sources in Delhi suggested British officials begged India to accept the aid. One commented: 'They said British ministers had spent political capital justifying the aid to their electorate.
Yes, indeed: we're all in this together and got to tighten our belts, but we need to fight hard to give away £280 million to people who don't want it otherwise The Dave will look more of a fool than usual.

It's like they read about Marie Antoinette and thought 'You ain't seen nothing yet'!

The Tories' Joe Kennedy Moment

Joe Kennedy always claimed he'd avoided the crash of 1929 by getting out of the market as soon as he noticed that even shoe shine boys were talking about hot shares. His logic was that as soon as everyone started piling into the market, shares prices would cease to reflect real underlying values and instead they'd bubble up right until the inevitable correction.

In the same spirit, I think I see the beginning of the end for the Dave Bubble, right here.

The BBC's Baby Seals

What are the odds, huh? In all the diverse workforce employed by the World's Greatest Broadcaster, there apparently wasn't a single person to point out that these guys may not the best choice as victims of the dreaded Toricutz.
