First topic message reminder :

We were warned two years ago that Cameron is an obnoxious and loathsome individual, but not enough people were listening:-

Just another Tory BARE FACED from Davy boy and his shower of OINKS, I wish people would wake up and realise what they voted for in May 2015, maybe when the Universal credits come in plus the rest of what the Tories are doing to the UK turning it into a little America then heaven help us all.

"Any cabinet minister, if we win the election, who comes to me and says ‘here are my plans and they involve front line reductions’, will be sent back to their department to go away and think again." (Cameron, ‘Marr’ show, 02/05/10)

IVAN This proves that Davy boy is the cheif LIAR of the Tory party, they pay high wages for there advisors to think up more LIES so Davy boy and his OINKS can repeat them in the HOC.

If the UK public do not wake up soon there will be NO UK in 2020, we will then be just little America plucked and ready for the USA to take us over. The only way to stop it is to act now either a general strike or Revelution French style i know some people here will throw up there hands and be appalled at my suggestion if this does not happen now believe me it will after people have woken up and smelt the coffee.

Cameron 'considers private school' for son - despite saying his children should be state educated

Cameron could send his son to an £18,000-a-year private school, despite saying he wanted his children to be state educated. Before he reached Number 10, the Old Etonian said public-funded education was the answer and described shelling out for private school as "crazy".

Labour MP Anna Turley said: "I think it's hypocritical as he's made an issue of it in the past. What's good enough for our children in the state sector obviously isn't good enough for his. He's quite happy to make the most of it when it's advantageous for him, but now he knows he hasn't got to face another election he can do what he likes scot-free."

It just proves the schooling that he is providing for plebs kids is so inferior, or is he just showing off because what he will be paying in school fees some people do not earn that in a year thanks to him and his nasty gov't.

The thing is Red, because of the lack of visible opposition, Herr Cameron has got away with his lies and deceit for so long, he now knows he can continue doing the same in the certain knowledge Labour are too busy infighting  instead of fighting him.
The Tory filth have had a very easy run for coming up to 6 Years, despite open goal after open goal opportunities for labour to unmask the swine, and let the Public know what is going on and the potential consequences.

BOBBY How bloody right your post is, the reason for the infighting within the Labour party is because certain Labour MPs can not get past the fact that there3 chosen candidate did not win could it be that there candidate promised them a top Ministerial job?

By the way bobby if you want the truth about what is going on in UK politics I suggest you watch the RT channel because we get EFF ALL from the BBC or Sky news, there are a couple of good programs on one of which is Max Keiser giving us the low down on how Osborne is robbing us blind of our public services by selling them off to his mates in the City of London, or GOING UNDERGROUND which tells us the WHEASES Osborne is creating for his City of London mates.

Post-truth politicians such as Donald Trump and Boris Johnson are no joke

From an article by Jonathan Freedland:-

The Washington Post’s fact-checker blog has awarded its maximum dishonesty rating – four Pinocchios – to nearly 70% of the Trump statements it has vetted. And it’s vetted a lot. That doesn’t mean the other 30% turned out to be true, they just earned three Pinocchios. Trump is in a league of his own, but this week Boris Johnson reminded us that he has more in common with Trump than just a lovingly styled, idiosyncratic head of blond hair. He ventured to Cornwall to climb aboard the Brexit battlebus, a vehicle which was itself guilty of a lie. Emblazoned on the side was the slogan: “We send the EU £350 million a week”.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Cameron’s recent speech focused on the national security implications of a Brexit. Johnson hit back: “I think all this talk of world war three and bubonic plague is demented, frankly.” And who could disagree? And yet a scan of the text of Cameron’s speech yields no results for either “bubonic” or “world war three”. Who was it, then, that introduced “all this talk” of such perils? It was Johnson himself.

Johnson has been sacked twice, and on both occasions it was for dishonesty. When it comes to Europe, Johnson’s career was all but built on wilful distortion. All those comedy stories of EU directives demanding square strawberries and smaller condoms were inserted into the public domain by the Telegraph’s Brussels correspondent in the 1990s, one Boris Johnson. As a former colleague, Sarah Helm, has recalled: “Johnson’s half-truths created a new reality … correspondents witnessed Johnson shaping the narrative that morphed into our present-day populist Euroscepticism”.

For me reading that, a telling phrase is, ".... Technology now allows politicians to communicate directly with their followers, with no need to transmit claims through the fact-checking filter of a news organisation."

also, "The BBC for all its flaws, has retained the status .... broadly trusted to play umpire between competing claims on the truth."

The evidence has always been there that a Tory administration looks after only itself and its natural supporters. Sometimes they overcook it, and in the past have been temporarily supplanted by the only possible alternative under our Parliamentary system. Tweedledum and Tweedledee Government.

But now there appears a glimmer of hope for a sensible alternative in the shape of a humane Opposition, are The Establishment going to be allowed to extinguish it?

From where I'm standing, it looks like they will be successful - apparently the PLP will continue the opposition to the leader even after Corbyn wins the vote (if he does - many will vote Smith to avoid the war of attrition)

Yes, boatlady, the "least-worst" election choice. (Discussed elsewhere on Cutting Edge). But there may yet be sufficient informed voters to avert the usual bland elisions. We'll know by the time the Labour Party Annual Conference convenes in Liverpewl.

In accordance with The Law of Unintended Consequences the date for the by-election in the Oxfordshire constituency which Cameron held for 15 years has been set for 20 October, and the same date has also been confirmed for the by-election in Batley and Spen after the death of Labour MP Jo Cox just days before the EU referendum.

Are the voters going to continue the recently established trend of confounding the pundits, I wonder?

MPs to launch inquiry into corporate excess

Boardroom excess and corporate governance were themes raised by May in her bid for the Conservative leadership after the EU referendum and one that she is expected to continue in her role as prime minister.

Yeah, right.
