Yes, quite good

The fact that the Labour Party is now getting its advice from Yanis Varoufakis and the revolutionary Marxist broadcaster Paul Mason does not suggest to me that they’ve got an answer to economic security. Presumably they chose those two because Chairman Mao was dead and Mickey Mouse was busy.

  1. Must admit to a snorting snigger, despite his poor delivery.

    I suspect that he is not impressed with the level of his enemies and can’t be bothered to take them seriously.

    Could be a mistake. As we are seeing here in Spain, people vote like turkeys voting for Christmas. Chickens – hatched Georgie boy!

  2. If there is a mistake to make that Grinning Skull Ozburke will make it.

    Underestimating the potential danger of ZaNu–esp in a massive economic crisis –is about a big a mistake as you could get.

    Also I see–via Raedwald –

    -that Mr Pig-Fook is planning to do away with any last vestiges of the membership having any influence over BluLabour. After all there are only 200,000 left and shutting them down would help the accession of his even stupider friend Ausburke.

    Scum every last one of them.

    I can’t help feeling that this is unfair to Mickey. After all, when we were first introduced to him he was gainfully employed peeling potatoes on a riverboat. Can either of these geniuses claim to have done anything remotely as useful?

    Admittedly Mickey has also had his share of government jobs. He may have been employed to kill a giant – in typical British government style he got the contract by a low bid with no real experience of giant-killing – and admittedly he didn’t actually kill the giant. But close enough.

    I prefer my classical music by Bugs of course.

    Bilbaoboy: I suspect that he is not impressed with the level of his enemies and can’t be bothered to take them seriously.

    It’s the opposition he can’t be bothered with. His enemies are behind him.

    Or is that what you meant?

    Mr Ecks: …there are only 200,000 left

    That’s probably double the actual number of Conservative Party members.

  5. Has Varoufakis ever said anything apart from repeating the phrase “democratize Europe” like a demented parrot? I’ve looked – honestly. I can’t find anything.

  6. I enjoyed it 🙂 . I’m starting to view all of this kind of thing as playing to the “Tory Blairs”, middle-england swing voters who voted in droves for Blair after he detoxified the Labour brand.

    This is all about retoxifying it for them so that they come out for the Tories because they’re sh1t scared that the hard Left controls Lab again.

    Don’t thinks so, but when he came on the scene all the female socialists I hang out with had the hots for him, big time!

    If I had behaved the way they did over some female politician, I would have been accused of virtual rape!

    I think that because he is rated as sexy (no, don’t ask me) that is enough to establish his credentials. Arrogant, self-opinionated, champagne socialist failure, but hey, who cares… Looks good in the socialite press..

  8. The Varoufakir talked more sense about Greece’s predicament than did the ECB, EU commission, etc. A low bar, I’ll grant you, but still.

  9. “Has Varoufakis ever said anything apart from repeating the phrase “democratize Europe” like a demented parrot?”

    What he means is the Greeks vote, and then decide what Europe will do… i.e. Give the Greeks more free money.

    From Guido, this from Cameron is quite amusing as well:

    “I can announce to the House his latest economic adviser, one Mr Yanis Varoufakis. He was the Greek finance minister who left his economy in ruins. That is Labour’s policy in two words: Acropolis Now.”

  11. Mickey has a non-compete clause in his contract with Disney. Being tied to a studio does have its upsides if it gives him an easy out from working with the comrades.

    tomo – “In other news Jeremy Kyle is appointed shadow benefits minister.”

    Actually I would vote for that. Can’t do a worse job. Possibly marginally better than Trisha.

  13. So Much For Subtlety

    you are correct – he has the same credentials as Howard Marks for drug czar 🙂

  14. So Much For Subtlety

    Alex – “Mickey has a non-compete clause in his contract with Disney. Being tied to a studio does have its upsides if it gives him an easy out from working with the comrades.”

    91 years in captivity
    Shoes too small to fit his feet
    His body abused but his mind is still free
    Are you so blind that you cannot see? I said…
    Free Mickey Da Mouse, I’m begging you
    Free Mickey Da Mouse

    Supported the cause at Disney
    Only one man in a large army
    Are you so blind that you cannot see?
    Are you so deaf that you cannot hear his plea?
    Free Mickey Da Mouse, I’m begging you

    “the revolutionary Marxist broadcaster Paul Mason”

    Mason denies being a revolutionary Marxist, and points out that Osborne said this under cover of Parliamentary privilege. He also denies acting as an advisor to the Labour party.

    But Tory minister is lying sack of shit is so ‘man bites dog’ isn’t it?

  16. Tory ministers have” lying sack of shit” written all the way through, like “Blackpool” thro’ a stick of rock.

    Just don’t delude yourself that your gang are any better.

    Witchsmeller Pursuivant – “Mason denies being a revolutionary Marxist, and points out that Osborne said this under cover of Parliamentary privilege. He also denies acting as an advisor to the Labour party. ”

    This looks like one of those linguistic quibbles made famous by Bill Clinton. It depends on what is is. He was a revolutionary Marxist, that is undeniable:

    A former member of the Trotskyist Workers’ Power group, he responded to an interviewer from the London Evening Standard in 2011: “It’s on Wikipedia that I was, so it must be true. It’s fair to say I was a Leftie activist. What my politics are now are very complicated.”[12][13][14]

    Saying your marriage status is “complicated” means you are cheating on your wife. Who is he trying to f**k with that quote exactly? It seems to suggest he let his membership lapse but he is still committed to the Cause. It is certainly not a simple “No I am not a revolutionary Marxist any more”.
