How should we dispose of the Tories (and UKIP)?

So many options, only 15 months.
One must always be wary of the march of the right-wing. I advocate public flogging/confiscation of assets/rehoming of their young

Tory landslide i think Annie....certainly worth a few quid....

People will see the improving economy, 10k tax threshold and proposed referendum in Europe as a real positive. Milliband just doesn't cut it and i cant see enough voters voting for him. Could have been a different storey if Dave Milliband was leader.....

So many people to agree with...

I guess we could tactically vote Labour? Most of the people I know would have preferred the "correct" Milliband though.

Annie's dream left wing government:

Miliband decides to call himself Dear Leader for life, takes girl guides into state control and renames them the Militarts.

Gordon Brown returns as Chancellor, after a couple of years he increases the state pension by 75p. Suggests to Ed that all 40%+ tax payers (except party members) to get bullet in the back of the head, Ed issues the order after a unanimous vote in cabinet.

George Galloway becomes Foreign Secretary, signs treaties of eternal friendship with Russia, and North Korea, demands that Ed declares war on USA.

Arthur Scargill takes over all Trade Unions, any awkward squad members get a bullet in the back of the head, and put in a mass grave in Delamere Forest, which is getting a bit full. The Green Brigade are delighted, when seemingly overnight, new fast growing Pine Forests appear all over the UK.

Tony Benn becomes Home Secretary, declares Wales is now one big gulag, for all families of revisionists who've had the bullet in the back of the head. All intellectual smart alecs to get bullet in back of head.

Ed Balls takes over as Education Secretary, creates a new degree qualification - for stuttering, lying, incompetent tw*ts.

Ken Livingstone is Health Secretary, creates special awards for the filthiest NHS hospitals, and special prizes for the hospitals which manage to kill off anyone over 65, within 7 days of admission.

Hazel Blears (robbing little ginger cu*t) is Trade and Industry, all factories will only produce tin utensils for the gulags, all workers will go for annual 2 week holidays to a Health Farm in Belarus. Blears secretly sells utensils to North Korea, builds herself a villa in Eccles.

Peter Mandelson is minister without portfolio, puts Michael Barrymore in charge of all swimming pool activities. All Welfare claimants forced to get a job in public service (manning the camps in the gulag). After a couple of years, agrees with Gorgeous George that a declaration of war against the USA might be a good idea, as the only way to rescue the economic basket case that the UK had become - was to be invaded, and occupied by the USA.

Bob Crow is minister of culture, opens a branch of Dulcimer in Pyongyang, on condition his guys will man the doors.
Special shops opened for high ranking party members, selling nice American stuff (bit like Costco), as there is nothing apart from tin utensils for sale in the high street.

Annie, who had become a cultural advisor to Bob Crow's department, is surprised to find herself floating face down in the Mersey, getting fished out at Jackson's Boat bridge. Turns out she had disagreed with Bob's choice of cider brand, for the new Dulcimer in Pyongyang.

Blenkinsop. I thing Arthur Scargill may be indisposed, as he's facing a legal action brought against him by the NUM, who would like to get back some of the miners' money he (allegedly) siphoned off to another organasiton, and also want to get him out of the £30k / year flat that Scargill seems to think the NUM should provide him with for life (rather than the money benefit hard-up miners). Pigs sleeping on beds with sheets and all that. Perhaps Len McCluskey would care to take Arthur's place as Minister for Crippling British Industry.

Oh yes. Surely the Reverend Flowers must have a role in Annie's government. Minister for banking regulation, and possibly caring for runaway boys as well?

We also need someone to oversee Paliamentary expenses. Which Labourite to pick though? Denis McShane? David Chaytor? Eric Illsley? Jim Devine? Maybe the choice will be governed by whichever has been released from prison in time.

Tosspot, the NUM stopped paying for Scargill's flat in the Barbican in 2011, he sued them and lost in December 2012. They are indeed chasing him for hundreds of thousands of pounds he siphoned off to an organisation he is the 'president' of. So Len McCluskey it will have to be. Did you know that Scargill tried to buy that flat in 1983 under Thatcher's right to buy scheme, he only failed as it wasn't his primary residence.

That Reverend Flowers story really pisses me off, I've banked with the Co-op all my working life, until about 5 years ago. I smelt something wasn't right with that shower, and switched accounts elsewhere. They still contact me offering financial advice!

I thought Hazel Blears was the one to oversee expenses, as she was smart enough to get away with it. As competence has sod all to do with it, what about Margaret Moran? She'll soon recover from the screaming ab dabs, or whatever she came up with, when they nailed her.

You're probably right. And she's suitably horrible to qualify.

I was once stood behind her waiting to get off the early morning train arriving at Euston, as she made a phone call. For anyone who seriously believes that Labour respects 'the workers', I wish you could have heard the bullying and patronising tone / languague she was using to some 'underling' over the phone.

Labour hasn't respected much of its principles for 20 years now. The Toryfication of the party purely in order to swing those crucial votes their way in 1997 betrayed most of what made the party one to respect (although by 1979, there wasn't much to respect).

UK has a choice of far-right, mid-right and centre-right these days, due to the overwhelmingly selfish nature of the British people. Distanced from war by three generations, it's a society of take... which suits the Tory pricks no end.

Do I vote Labour? Yes... I kinda have to, although it gives me no pleasure. It's more about ensuring that the Tory vermin don't get in again than anything else, and that's a sad situation.

If Scotland vote for independence then that'll pretty much kill Labour stone dead, won't it? Tory landslides for evermore...

Annie.

Given that you seem to be owning up to the sort of extreme left wing views that even the hard left within the Labour party will not espouse, and given the British electorate has pretty much zero appetite for full-on, loon-tune Socialism; have you considered emmigration to somewhere more in-line with your beliefs?

I know there aren't many Socialist paradises left, but Cuba is just about hanging on in there. Venezuela too, albeit a sizeable slice of the population is rebelling. Then of course there's the lovely Kim whatever-h'es-called's patch. You won't have to rub shoulders with any of us Tories there.

I think it could be a best all round solution.

I was described as a "Loony Leftie" by the Daily Star once. I was very proud. I was described by my employer at the time as being way to the left of Leon Trotsky. I don't think my views have changed as I got older. I am not as angry as I used to be but I am fundamentally the same.

Don't you have to stand up and be counted for your political views?


Abusing someone because their views differ from yours achieves nothing. Have a debate by all means but personal abuse just weakens your argument.

Some may object to being patronised by an unelected Mother Superior, who admits being described as left of Leon Trotsky, and takes it as a compliment. Someone who despite the passage of time likes to be associated with a successful mass murderer, who didn't simply become a good guy, just because he fell out with Stalin.

This intervention, just when the left are getting a bit of a slap, is somewhat self serving.

Your criticism of a well known serial abuser (on this forum), who abuses anyone who hasn't at least expressed an interest in the socialist workers party - is conspicuous by it's absence.

And I will most certainly stand up for my views and to debate them with those who have different views. However I feel no need to be polite to insolent old trouts. Especially so if their 'contributions' on political issues lack any real substance, aside from general slurs as to the motivations of anyone who does not subscribe to fruit-loop political views.
