Is it time to pass the parcel (aka Poison Chalice)?

John Prescott: Forget about replacing Gordon Brown. None of you lot is up to the job

"John Prescott led a backlash against Cabinet plotters yesterday, saying that none had the skills or experience to rival Gordon Brown, while the Prime Minister’s allies gave warning that he would sack disloyal ministers." ... "In a statement the Justice Secretary (Jack Straw) said it would be a “big mistake” for the party to ditch Mr Brown. “I am absolutely convinced that Gordon Brown is the right man to be leading the Labour Party,” he said. He added: “It would be a big mistake for the Labour Party to now turn in on itself and indulge in a summer of introspection.”" What a lot of hot air, looks like they all say one thing to your face and another behind your back. Just make a 1% cut in Tax this will give a 2% boost to the economy without affecting the housing crash ...

  • Ah, yes just the man to endorse Gordon Brown – the much hated “two jags” John Prescott.

    I beg to differ jack. I’d rather have John Prescott installed as a dictator than have Ruth ‘pop ’em out’ Kelly lording over us with her forthright (but wrong) views. Remember chaps she was in charge of the HIPs debarcle, you know the unnessecary and burdonsome millstone that makes prospective sellors spend 3-400 quid just to put their property on the market and see it not sell. Another stunning piece of legislation from the party that have almost doubled the statue book in 11 short years.

    The nuLabourParty – “if it moves make a law against – it if it still moves tax it”

    Brilliant – I thought it was – “If it moves, make a law to stop it moving – so that you can then tax it as much as you want”

    And I must say I like someone’s comment on the BBC today about ‘zaNu labour’

    I must admit the reason the Labour party can’t find anyone to relace Broon is no doubt because the great british public is so sick of the spin that eminates from the mouths of ministers everytime the open them.

  • Brown just surrounded himself with no hopers to ensure there was no credible leadership alternative.

    We just need an election. They all need desperately to sit down properly and work out how to get the economy back on the road.

    It’s not really that difficult …
    1) Stop meddling with what is working whether it is perfect or not, it just has to get the job done.
    2) Stop wasting money left, right, and centre (ugh pun).
    3) Reduce the Tax Burden by at least 5%.
    4) Get rid of all those unnecessary rules, laws, red tape, etc.
    5) Re-introduce family values, that means living at home with the bank of Mum & Dad, becomes acceptable, whilst still going out to work “locally”, reduces expenditure, carbon footprint, housing, etc.
    6) Demolish all new “bedsit” apartments – ok that’s a pet hate.
    …..

    This makes me seem like the loony fringe …. agghhh.

  • We seem to be lead by a ship of fools. Roll on the next election. I am confident the labour party will cease to exist. Every time threy come to power the economy nosedives 5 seconds later.
    And anyway George the electorate did not elect you. Just go away to your manse and sulk for the rest of your days. You are despised by everyone but your cronies, who are terrified of the next election.
    Bye bye Geoge, bye bye nu labour. The sooner the better.

    Up until 1st Jan 2009, you don’t need a full HIP to put a house on the market, just the energy certificate. You can then compile the rest of the HIP once you’ve got a sale. Of course, the VIs won’t tell people this, and few will be inclined to do there own research.
