  1. Bill Cash MP says he has concerns about the obligatory elements of the "lesbian treaty". Wow, Cameron has improved things already.
  2. Then Queen is smiling because right up until the last minute she worried Dave might realise he has a clearer claim on her job than Gordon's old one.
  3. Dave: Can you believe they think I'm a toff? Queen: Dave, even I think you're a toff.
  4. repost from another thread: David: Hi Auntie. Auntie Liz: Oh hello David, sorry I forgot your birthday, have a book token. David: Can't I have an autographed self portrait with £50 written next to it? Auntie Liz: Don't be cheeky David, you're not so big that I can't put you over my knee!
  5. He's already gone, you've missed it.
  6. David: Hi Auntie. Auntie Liz: Oh hello David, sorry I forgot your birthday, have a book token. David: Can't I have an autographed self portrait with £50 written next to it? Auntie Liz: Don't be cheeky David, you're not so big that I can't put you over my knee!
  7. I wish Dave would let his pregnant wife sit down. She looks like she is going to feint at any moment.
  8. You didn't turn out very well though did you.
  9. Quite. "I warn you not to be ordinary. I warn you not to be young. I warn you not to fall ill. I warn you not to get old"
  10. Short, not very political and fair enough actually.
  11. Just saw Hague striding up the road. And then Osborne appeared from out of his shadow. There was an audible groan from the crowd.
  12. Tonal languages are very hard for existing speakers of non-tonal languages to pick up.
  13. Financial capitalism is as dumb as a bag of rocks. They are very clever about coming up with the means, but the ends are starkly circumscribed, to some extent legally constrained and outwith the control of any individual. Put it this way, if they were capable of helping themselves by acting in line with the kind of reasoning you describe, it would be positive proof of the most vast, deeply rooted and pervasive conspiracy imaginable, something that would make the Illuminati and the supposed NWO look like the Women's Institute. There should be no way its possible.
  14. This should really be challenged, it was in the university system and the judge ruled pretty decisively IIRC. That said, the BMA are pretty careful with their political capital and seem to prefer to take cold hard cash over conditions for junior staff on the old "I had to suffer in my day" basis.
  15. They aren't the Liberal party though.
  16. Its not going to happen, I suspect Gordon got the wink from Nick that he was losing traction and needed him to drop the hammer. Labour's main aim is really to make sure the Tories wind up with something that they find hard to live with given their vicious internal divisions.
  17. He didn't. He said he'd offer to form a government with the party that did. If Cameron can't control his own party in terms of agreeing PR and closer ties with Europe then it is Dave that is to blame. Labour will form a government because the Tories didn't want to, its not their fault is it.
  18. Cameron can do his patriotic duty and promise immediate STV voting and that he'll take it to the country again in the Autumn or he can let the country down. Its all on his shoulders, he had first refusal, he couldn't be bothered, all his fault.
  19. They might actually. They are the wrong ones basically, Dave's handpicked chums were the ones who lost the key marginals they thought they were entitled to win. I don't think this issue has been given sufficient attention actually, its quite possible this is what turned voters against them. More poor judgement from Dave, can he not get anything right?
  20. The law changed on this a few years ago, but that is what they were doing all over the public sector actually.
  21. The last man in Britain with faith in the abilities of public sector management steps forward and makes himself known!
  22. Somehow I knew you were going to say something like that. Not really interested in discussing anything were you.
  23. March 1997: 1,030, 947 people on waiting lists longer than 13 weeks (waiting more than 6 months: 448,340). December 2009: 57,586 (waiting more than six months: 18). I wonder how many died before they were treated? Not that you'd care of course.
  24. I don't have to choose either. I can have regrettable but necessary cuts made as carefully possible. It doesn't have to be loaded with spite and bile and the people affected don't have to be mocked and humiliated by their own government. If you can't imagine making cuts without 'glee' and the desire to settle scores I'd question what is actually motivating your views. Isn't it time you grew up? PS. Cisco Kid, 30% of what I imagine might be your industry is government spending, how much of that do you think they should cut?
