David Cameron

‘I didn’t get into Parliament to be a bit of f***ing arm candy’

Now this is interesting, and I’ll tell you why after you’ve read this

Female Tory MPs are apparently outraged at being lined up as ‘arm candy’ to walk alongside Prime Minister David Cameron at this year’s party conference.

According to The Spectator, there are a number of predominantly new female MPs who have been told to stand and walk alongside the Prime Minister as he makes his way between events at this year’s Tory conference in Manchester.

Some of the women are said to be unhappy with the arrangement, which is said to have become apparent when the special rota on who will accompany Mr Cameron on his visits was published among the team.

Mr Cameron has long tried to shake off the Conservative party’s ‘pale, male and stale’ image.

He has also long suffered from a problem connecting with female voters, not helped by his own crass behaviour at times.

Gaffes such as publicly dismissing the Tory MP Nadine Dorries as ‘frustrated’, and telling a Labour shadow minister to ‘Calm down, dear’ during PMQs have hardly boosted his appeal. Read more »

Sanctimonious hypocrite finally admits he was wrong

Paul David Hewson aka Bono Vox has been a sanctimonious hypocrite almost his entire life, certainly since he got fame and wealth and decided to lecture us all.

Well he has finally got a hold of senses and woken up.

He has spent years haranguing governments to increase public spending on aid, claiming it would end world poverty.

But Bono has finally changed his tune, admitting that the way to solving extreme poverty is through trade rather than aid.

In a remarkable turnaround, the rock star has told business leaders it is the private sector that holds the key.

The U2 singer, whose real name is Paul Hewson, was instrumental in persuading politicians including David Cameron to pledge to spend 0.7 per cent of the country’s income on aid.

But speaking at a UN aid conference in New York, Bono acknowledged that the private sector has a bigger role to play in development than governments.

Addressing business leaders, he said: ‘I’m late to realising that it’s you guys, it’s the private sector, it’s commerce that’s going to take the majority of people out of extreme poverty. And, as an activist, I almost found that hard to say.’   Read more »


Just answer the question John, Have you ever shagged a pig?

It is a question I’ve always wanted to ask a politician. Have you ever shagged a pig?

Quickly followed by, and if yes, did the pig enjoy it?

Following allegations British Prime Minister David Cameron put “a private part of his anatomy” in a dead pig’s mouth while he was at uni, many leaders have their student days on the mind.

Asked if there were any stories from his University of Canterbury days he wouldn’t like to get out, our own John Key had a response at the ready.

“I was in the Chunder Mile once, but nothing there you would really want to show footage of,” he said.

“It wasn’t my finest moment.”    Read more »

Delingpole on Cameron

It wasn’t just pig shagging that David Cameron got up to at university, according to James Delingpole they consumed quite a bit of weed too.

Thirty years on I still have to pinch myself sometimes when I remember that the charming, likeable, not very political bloke called Dave I used to smoke dope with is now the leader of one of the world’s most powerful nations.

But what I find even more surprising is that anyone should find it remotely odd that the Prime Minister of Great Britain should have dabbled in drugs in his youth.

Personally, I’d find it a lot more worrying if we had a Prime Minister of his generation who hadn’t smoked the odd spliff in his time. Politicians are so tame and career-safe, nowadays. We could do with a few with a bit of hinterland.

Noel Gallagher of Oasis was quite right a few years later when he said that taking drugs “like getting up and having a cup of tea in the morning.”

It certainly was for at least some of us at Oxford in the mid-Eighties.

Not all of us though, it must be said. If Dave and I had gone up to Oxford just a couple of years later, we would have found a university awash with class A drugs. By then Rave Culture had exploded and suddenly everyone was doing Ecstasy and Cocaine. But when we were there, drug-taking was still a minority pursuit.    Read more »

It’s a simple question…Did you shag the pig or not?

Spinmeister Damien McBride explains the predicament David Cameron is in after “evil” Lord Ashcroft decided to spill the beans.

As a spin doctor, there are two phone calls that make your heart sink: the one from a journalist relaying some excruciating allegation about your boss’s personal life or past history; and the second, the call you have to make to said boss in order to work out your response.

Working for Gordon Brown, a man of Victorian sensibilities and a volatile temper, the second call was invariably greeted with the single word “What?!” repeated with increasing volume and violence as I recounted the misdeed of which he had been accused. Even so, I’d conclude with the essential question that all spin doctors must ask in these situations: “What’s the truth?” Not, “What shall we say?” or, “How do you want me to handle it?” but instead the absolute insistence on knowing the full, unvarnished facts before deciding whether and how to spin them.

Sometimes, especially with Brown, that question provoked an angry barrage of abuse, as if just by asking it, I was implying the allegation might be true. That was good. That was what I wanted to hear. With other politicians, celebrities and friends I’ve advised over the years, you’d instead hear a dread pause, then a hesitant, “Well…”. That’s when you know you’re screwed.

So this is the caliber of our journalism

At today’s post-cabinet press conference, Andrea Vance asked the Prime Minister a really pertinent question.   What does he think about the allegations that UK Prime Minister David Cameron has had his meat and two veg inside a dead pig’s mouth?


The fact that Vance thought that was the sort of thing that would get her the valuable answers needed to write for her newspaper is bad enough, but it would have died a nice death in the awkward silence of others who were thinking “did she really just ask that?”, if it wasn’t for her tag-team partner and Media Party communications spokesperson, Katie Bradford, spewing it out for all to see on the Twitter machine.

Seriously, these people can’t figure out why they don’t have your respect.

UK PM David Cameron loves Charter Schools

In the UK Charter schools are called ‘Free schools.’ I wonder if the free refers to being free of meddling Education Unions?

David Cameron

The Government’s commitment to open 500 free schools over the next five years will create 270,000 school places across the country.

…Prime Minister David Cameron said: “As a One Nation Government we are clear that every family should have access to a great local school and every child should get the very best education – and free schools are a crucial part of that aim.
…The 18 new schools announced today include a number that will be set up by teachers themselves, showing the programme is putting power back in the hands of those who know children best.

A worthy goal, perhaps John Key might like to mimic it

Dan Hodges thinks that David Cameron and George Osborne are trying to wipe Labour off the political map.

A worthy goal to say the least, but they are now being helped by the election of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour’s leader.

In the final days leading up to Jeremy Corbyn’s election as Labour leader, I received several calls from Tory ministers and backbench MPs. They were a bit like football fans whose team is on the brink of promotion, but still can’t quite believe they will secure the final extra point needed to go up. “It isn’t really going to happen, is it?”, one minister asked me. “They aren’t actually going to do it?”

“Yes,” I replied, “they really are going to do it.”

And they did. Those who view Jeremy Corbyn as a divisive figure are being a touch unfair. There are few politicians who could have managed to get both Diane Abbott and David Cameron rooting for their election.

All of this analysis has been conducted along conventional political lines. How big a majority can the Tories now hope to secure in 2020? Can they grind Labour down so much that a Tory victory in 2025 is all but inevitable?

To which the answers are “as big as they like” and “yes”. But these are not conventional political times.

Josie Pagani on Corbyn’s election

Josie Pagani offers her thoughts on Jeremy Corbyn’s election as Labour leader in the UK.

Jeremy Corbyn will never be Prime Minister of Britain. He’s unelectable. A cruel and anti-worker Tory government set on scrapping the Human Rights Act, taking Britain out of Europe, and cutting welfare is now free to rule, probably for at least a decade.

We’ve been here before. Michael Foot’s defeat in the 1980s condemned Britain to the cruellest years of Thatcherism.

There is nothing noble or brave about unworkable polices and promises that will never be delivered. There is only defeat.

Tory activist Lord Ashcroft recently published a survey of loyalists who voted Labour in this year’s UK election. It found, “More than three quarters said one of their main reasons for voting Labour had been that the party’s values were closest to their own; fewer than half said it had been because they thought Labour would have made the most competent government. This, then, is Labour’s loyal core vote.

“They believed people had failed to appreciate what Labour had achieved, that credulous swing voters had been influenced by the right-wing media, and that although Labour’s policies had been right, they had not been communicated well.”

Ashcroft’s analysis shows Corbyn has been elected by activists more concerned about validating their anger and feeling good about themselves than by people who will make Britain better. They think its more important to show their rage about inequality than to reduce inequality. Labour’s base has indulged itself, convinced of their own principled virtue rather than asking hard questions about why most voters don’t trust us to deliver on our principles.

Disgusting display of anti-semitism in London, journalist calls for death of all Jews in Israel

This is absolutely disgusting, but it’s what you get when you import terror masquerading as “immigrants” or “refugees”.

At yesterday’s violent, pro-terrorist, anti-Israel rally outside Number 10 Downing Street in London, a pro Palestinian woman openly called for the genocide of six million Jews while accusing others of racism. Another anti-racist stood before a group of Jews waving a penny, telling them “money… is all you understand.”   Read more »
