"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Good Riddance


Gordon Brown, on being asked about Miliband taking up the post of EU Foreign Minister:
"Let me just say, I have been at the meeting."

"That was not their decision, just let me tell you. Also if there is a shortlist I am sure David would be on it because he has excellent qualifications. But he doesn't want to be on it. And indeed there is no such list."

From Politics.co.uk: Miliband 'heading to Europe'

There's also speculation that Mandelson will be a caretaker leader of the Labour Party after the next GE. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse :-(

PS  Has anyone noticed how all the news channels are suddenly no longer shy of using the words EU; European Union; EU laws, or EU Citizens?

  1. GV,

    Two initial thoughts: the minute a politician denies something you know it is true and secondly, as I commented elsewhere, if Milibland does go would he mind doing a 'Glenn Miller' on the way?

    As to Mandelbum taking over as temporary leader, no surprise there as Labour always were a queer bunch.

    Yes, and how many of the news media using EU etc actually know what they are talking about? I see a new opinion poll is being crowed over on ConHOme cause it was conducted yesterday and today after Cameron's announcement. Not one of them stops to think how many of those interviewed realise that the re-negotiation is a non-starter and that the referendum-lock will never be used due Lisbon being self-amending.

    One does wonder why some people actually have the vote!

  2. Now that I am a citizen of the EU may I say to Brown, Miliband, Mandleson, and Cameron as well: Faux Cough.

  4. So Junky Puppy is going over to blow the euro horn is he?

    Well he has been groomed since conception when his commie dada was checking on the instructions about where the "family" expected to pitch up next for an easy ride.

    Contribute to society? Diversity and the benefits of multiculturalism. The benefots of immigration tomthe UK? He's used us and sodded off.

    Junky Puppy's fucked of pronto, as planned, to live at court. You can bet HE'LL be driven in the London eurocrats only lane during 2012 when he'll ignore our existence as we walk to the bread line to minimise our carbon fart print.

  5. I was not born into the EU and neither did I apply for citizenship. I owe it no allegiance and thus cannot commit Treason against it.
    Millipeedhisself will just become a national joke/humiliation, Labours last little bit of "power" when they are booted out at the GE.

  6. Thanks for your comments - there isn't one I disagree with. I can only assume Miliband will be anointed because he's as thick as pig****, largely ineffective but intensely loyal to 'the cause'.
    Tris, I can't tell from your pic but I'll take your word for it and at least you've got principles.
