Adam Lovejoy reports from Manchester: Well, it had to happen and it did. George Osborne, the man who moonlights as Chancellor of the Exchequer the Tory party, Prime Minister David Cameron, a comedian with his own comedy routine. Boy George and Parliament do another rendition of Stand Up Comedy over on Stirring Trouble Internationally. GeorgeOsborne Does Another Stand Up Comedy Gig On The Economy. But Fails To Raise A Single Laugh (stirringtroubleinternationally.com)
if you allow politicians to promise one thing before the elections and then do the opposite or do nothing.
This has got nothing to do with free and fair elections. It actually smacks of electoral fraud, if you want it straight.
Every political party involved in elections needs to publish it’s manifesto in all national newspapers, so that keen watchers of politics could have a cut-out stuck to their refrigerators.
The current Prime Minister David Cameron has broken his pledge contained in the party’s election manifesto
not to increase university tuition fees and added, without consulting anyone.
The referendum on the Lisbon Treaty , the Conservatives fail to win a working majority they would form a coalition with the Liberal Democrats. Chancellor George Osborne included so many broken promises into the Tory election manifesto when he was not yet Chancellor. Naturally the Conservative party would never have done or said anything of the sort. This is a labour trick.
You won’t believe what happened in Britain’s media land. The conservative rag The Daily Telegraph has teamed up with the left-wing BBC to bring down a Tory members of parliament, Patrick Mercer in fact, for supposedly breaking parliamentary lobbying rules.
Do you sense something odd about the whole affair? It would have been one thing if the BBC got into bed with, say, the Daily Mirror or the Independent, to carry out a sting operation on a Conservative MP. But how is it that two ideological foes team up to go after a politician who was on the right of the Tory party?
Not to mention the whole Tory front bench working for autocratic regimes in the Middle East, helping them to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. How come hacks are not concerned with all that?
Now you may wonder why would the BBC help PM Cameron out?
The Telegraph newspaper is supportive of the bankers for 5 years now ever since the financial crisis and the‘expenses scandal from the MPs.
Rebels on the Tory backbenchers are careful now what they say or do. Dave’s friends in the media are watching them.
Well, now we know. London’s Mayor Boris Johnson is staying loyal to PM David Cameron and is confident in his, Cameron’s that is, victory in the 2015 general election.
On the Internet people are asking for the truth in former 10 Downing Street about what the director of communications Andy Coulson thinks about Boris and Dave and his own struggle to be Tory leader and prime minister. The track record of Boris messing up his jobs and he was no great editor of The Spectator.
In today’s entry over on Stirring Trouble Internationally there are reflections about Ken Livingstone who was then deeply unpopular and if any other Tory would have stood against Red Ken the result would have been the same.
He needs the Conservative party machine to be behind him. Otherwise this whole myth of Boris The Great will fall apart in a day.
