A tale of two campaign stops

Uncategorized 25 April 2010 4 Comments

Sat as I do on a Sunday with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and a slice of toast, tuned into BBC News 24, I was treated to the best recent example of how easy it is to prefer David Cameron to Gordon Brown. Brown was teed up to speak to first time voters in […]

Fake Letters 9 April 2010 1 Comment

Lord Pearson, Leader of the UK Independence Party Friday 9 April 2010 Dear Mr. Cameron, I have decided to write to you today to clarify some of the comments which have been attributed to me on the subject of the desirability or no of a working majority for you as leader of the Conservative Party. […]

Labour creates the greatest ever election poster… for the Conservatives.

Uncategorized 3 April 2010 12 Comments

Very little to say here.  M&C Saatchi Saatchi & Saatchi*, Labour’s poster people, have run a competition for any cretin with MS Paint to have a go at saving Gordon Brown from the apparently inevitable embarrassing and potentially intensely satisfying fate of being an unelected Prime Minister fucked out on his ear.  They chose a […]

Geraldine Dreadful MP writes to Frank Field MP

Uncategorized 18 March 2010 7 Comments

Dear former comrade Field, I read with some disbelief, shock, ennui and anger reports of comments that you made that it would not make you physically sick to encounter David Cameron, and that you would not consider setting fire to yourself if he ever phoned you.  Imagine my deep visceral reaction, accompanied by gagging and […]

Brown misleads the House and ends up in a bit of a Pickle(s)

Uncategorized 3 February 2010 1 Comment

Today’s Prime Ministers Questions was an exhilarating experience, partially because David Cameron was on form, alive and effective at asking his questions.  They were topical, fed the news cycle and kept the Labour benches almost silent.  It was superb work from the future Prime Minister. The other two main players, however, were pretty dreadful at […]

A letter from Geraldine Dreadful MP to David Cameron

Uncategorized 18 January 2010 5 Comments

Dear Mr. Cameron, In common with many Labour MPs, I have been dismayed, shocked and angered, sexually aroused and then filled with self-loathing by your intervention yesterday (18/01/2010) on teaching. I must say, your appeal to the baser instincts of parents who selfishly, without solidarity and collegiality seek a high standard of education for their […]

This week has been dominated by the Iraq Inquiry, the phoney war precursor to the 2010 General Election and continued political fallout from the apparently unstoppable vagina of scandal surrounding Iris Robinson, MP MLA. The Iraq Inquiry has begun to become interesting.  Alistair Campbell, Tony Blair’s spin doctor, was called upon to give evidence, and instead […]

Conservatives don’t do lacklustre

Uncategorized 14 January 2010 3 Comments

David Cameron is, without a doubt, the best performing politician in the country, when he turns it on.  Unfortunately, sometimes he runs at half tilt.  As a result, at his absolute lowest ebb, sometimes he is actually bested by Gordon Brown.  Heaven forfend! That didn’t happen yesterday, but David Cameron must know that the final […]

A new section of the blog whereupon we kick the tyres on the stories of the week and work out what lessons we can learn. Labour ‘Dodgy Dossier’ Launch Labour are rather keen on launching dossiers, aren’t they?  As if their intelligence dossier on Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction hadn’t been a clusterbang enough, Alistair […]
