Red Ed's plan to devalue Parliament and bypass the Opposition

The authoritarian instinct of Red Ed Miliband were on show today - when he laid an elephant trap for UK democracy with his proposal to allow the public to question the PM.

Such theatre would compete with PMQs, and help bypass MPs and especially the official opposition.

After all it was Tony Blair who abolished twice weekly PMQs - Miliband is just working out how to rig the system to his advantage ( maybe a ban on bacon sandwiches will be next ).

Would Cameron resign if defeated in 2015 ?

I ask as one possible expatiation for the Give demotion is to have a tight grip on the troops to survive a defeat.

After all Cameron has left it be understood he won't go if Scotland leaves the union. Why should a general election defeat stop his career ?

Another possible view is that Give and Hague are now available as super subs if the LibDems decide to leave the coalition.

Any other ideas of what's going on ?

Saving the taxpayers money by killing people faster and more efficiently

Normally I'd be all for the moral argument on assisted dying, and for the record I'm against on a religious precautionary principle.

However, we should also recognise that Lord Falconer's bill would set up the basis for saving the NHS and therefore the taxpayer ( the major contribution from which are from a rich minority ) a great deal of money.

its your last few days that cost all the money in the NHS - or at least the last phases of an acute illness.

get people to be bumped of by an increasingly amoral medical establishment would save a great deal of money.

Remember one of the reason we have waves of immigrants into Europe is to keep our health services running with an ageing population profile. And immigration can't carry on forever at current rates.

Those with the money have a real big interest in cutting costs.

Just saying ...

What did the Whips know ?

The allegations now surfacing about the behaviour of some Westminster MPs and the possible cover up will impact one group of people specifically - the Whips of all the main parties.

They will have tried to deal with scandal the quiet way and keep things under their hat ( sometimes to be used to ensure future loyalty ).

So let me ask "What did the Whips know ?".

Of course they won't pay any attention to me - but if there is a campaigning journalist out there who wants to push the cause of justice - why no follow that line on inquiry ?

Junckered - but who being fooled ?

So at one level - we have #CastIronDave making a charge of the light brigade quixotic gesture to stop Mr Juncker being confirmed as the President of the European commission.

Clearly CCHQ is hoping that Eurosceptics will admire how robust and forth right David Cameron is for the UK's interests when he has no hope of achieving those ends ( and so isn't risking dmagaging the European Union one bit. )

Its clearly the Conservative party line as other cabinet ministers have been spouting off about it.

Behind the scenes the Conservtive party is dong all it can to spike UKIP's guns. In the EU this has included collaborating with the AfD and other parties that are logically close allies of UKIP - solely to try to make UKIP's position more difficult.

They are campaigning in seats that UKIP might target ( see here https://www.facebook.com/events/1434257806839640/ ) rather than against Labour.

People who know Cameron, like the Polish Prime minister, assume he's just faking the Eurospectic line to cut off the oxygen from the genuine Eurosceptics.

Personally I thinnk Dave has form on this and its the most likely explaination of his rather odd behaviour. Its all to fool Euroscpetic votes again ...

Are you ready to be fooled again, or will you be voting UKIP ?

End of the World Cup, Parlaiment on recesss soon - going to be a bumper Silly Season I think

Well those political class folk will be getting their last good rest this Summer before campaigning to keep their jobs and gold platedpensions, leaving the interns and spAd operating the Twitter accounts etc ... and more interns in the MSM to report on them.

Yes its nearly time to declare the silly season open.

What will this years crop bring ?

PS I'm willing to allow Labour's Owl pledge in, even though its technically out of season.

Snake oil 3

Lets remember that HS2 is being diverted around George Osborne's constituency in Tatton, at great cost to orgdinary tax payers.

Mind you the real damage is HS2 itself nd the billions of capital it will misallocate and the economic damage that it is certain the perform on Cities it bypasses and even those it links to London.

But the trustafarians who have made politics their hobby wanted to triangulate with wishy washy floating voters so any price [paid by the taxpayer and others in lost jobs is find for what was once the conservative party.

But now comes the final insult - HS3 for the general election. A completely nuts idea* by a deeply cynical career politician If they really cared about the North they'd push a second M6 through between Birmingham and up to Preston.

The little games of the little boys Goerge and Dave matter much more than their country or the tax payer.

If there are any Conservative party members left who are in their party for the good of our country now is the time to leave - its quite clear the political class who run the Conservative party as a sort of hobby don't deserve anyone's support.

* Do you really need me to explain why ?
