On Labour's third place with 15.7% of the popular vote


Just occasionally, an artist has a moment of genius which really does say more than a thousand words.

Your Grace,
Pleased as I am that the anti-Christian Labour Party is on 15%, I think we should be careful not to see this number as an indicator of a general Election defeat for Brown next year.
Whereas Cameron needs 42% for a working majority in the Commons, Labour only need 36% thanks to the demographics and some gerrymandering of boundaries in 1998 by Mandelson.
The council elections only gave Cameron 38%, so he needs a minimum of 4% to have a small majority. The answer for him is to offer the people an in/out referendum on the EU in order to garner the now substantial anti-EU vote.
Thee is an argument for voting for Cameron as the lesser of the two evils. However, I am sure I am not alone when I say that I do not indulge in negative voting. Unlike the vote switching prevalent amongst the Lib-Dems my vote is reserved for what I believe in. For that reason I vote UKIP and unless the Conservatives offer me what UKIP offer I shall not be returning to their fold.

Yes, but people are not going to vote UKIP en mass in a general election.

Maybe not, but if enough do then the Conservatives will be denied their majority. Of course, Labour (and some conservative) votes will similarly be lost to the BNP.

Cameron must be wondering what it will take to get him over 40% in the polls. The answer of course is a referendum on EU membership - but that's never going happen.

There is no maybe about it. And the BNP will not gain any huge vote in the general election either. I am a BNP member, but it has to be seen realistically. BNP increases are incremental based on a range of correlations between the media and fickle public sentiment.

The BNP will make its usual increases which will not be significant enough to absorb the UKIP voters who will now be looking to elect a government. What could happen is that the LibDems manage to absorb some of the UKIP vote, but my prediction is a Tory wipe out. I say this because I believe that Labour meltdown will descend into ugly scenes of controversy during the build up to the general election, and Cameron will not really have to try too hard to swing it in his favour. If they do not have an ace up the sleeve ready for when the election is called, then I will eat my words.

I will simply be delighted beyond description with the demise of this satanic government which has detrimentally wounded a religion that means more to me than anything else in my life. What ever sins of conscience that I have against me for my views, then I will answer to God for them myself, but I do not answer to politicians or anyone else for that matter with regards to my faith and what I am prepared to do to keep it.

If the Conservatives continue in the same vein then it will be round two wont it.

As Kevin Maguire said,

“The only way Gordon Brown can win the general election is if Madeleine McCann’s body is found in David Cameron’s garage.”

Labour is finished no matter if they choose a new leader.

Melanie Phillips spells it out HERE quite eloquently.

Also it now seems that the Glennys Kinnock appointment has descended into complete farce because she cannot assume her new role until she stands down from her EU post.

And the disgraced Justice Minister Shahid Malik, who can be seen in THIS video predicting the islamification of Parliament, is to be reinstated into the Labour cabinet.

UTTER SHAMBLES AND CONTROVERSIAL CHAOS THAT WILL ONLY GET WORSE.

Brown has another 12 months to dig a deeper hole. He cannot help himself - he needs to keep burrowing until the whole superstructure collapses on top of him. He is Gollum Gordon and coveted the Ring of Power

Amidst the fallout from the Euro elections we have had a few Labour politicians, among them Geraldine whatsherface and Shahid Malik, procrastinating on the radio.

Is it just me that thinks that the EU superstate and mass immigration are priorities that need addressing for a myriad of reasons? NOT ONE of the politicians that have been interviewed has mentioned these issues. They seem to tell us what we are worried about rather than ask us. We get, "the electorate are concerned about their jobs", "the electorate are unhappy about the expenses fiasco", "the electorate have voted BNP and UKIP because they want to let us know they are unhappy with the way MP's have behaved" Why are the issues I mentioned being ignored? It seems all the main stream parties are going to concentrate on trying to destroy the BNP and UKIP and carry on as before. AGHHH!!!!!!

"....LibDems manage to absorb some of the UKIP vote.....,"
the LibDems are the most europhile of all the parties, why on earth would a UKIP voter change to a LibDem voter ?
The LibDems lost votes in the traditional strongly Liberal South West because of their love of the EU.

PS the cartoonists ought to practice drawing Nigel Farage, he will be in the news more and more.

I am sick of hearing of Brown and the way he is taking us down the undemocratic way of misrule with his cabinet being inhabited with un-elected, highly paid jokers who are soaking up more of our money.
I’ve also just seen the BNP attacked on Parliament Green by the Unite group, thus making the press unable to ask the objectionable BNP leader Griffiths and MEP any questions about his views. I am no supporter of the BNP, I’ve seen at first hand the old NF thugs at work, but do these morons from the left wing Unite not understand that by stopping BNP from being questioned they only give them more air to thrive? The BNP are unfortunately democratically elected by UK people, unlike the thugs of the left wing Unite group who seem to represent only themsleves.
Give the BNP air time to hang themselves and people will soon know what jerks they are and how shallow and hateful their policies really are.

I predict Nick Griffin for PM at the next or following National election.

moorlandhunter - the morons from Unite are the same morons who keep electing Socialists to Parliament. Being socialist they already KNOW the answers to all your questions; that is why the keep telling you what your questions are. They know that there is no opposition to the EU; they can no more hear that demand than brown can hear the demands for his resignation

Please dont get upset. This situation is not new, it has always been the case. It is just that you have not noticed that it has been this way all of your entire life before now.

The long and the short of it is this.

We have never actually lived in a true democracy, we only think we have. some still actually believe we know still live in a true liberal democracy, bless-um.

The established parties are HANDED their agendas one way or another, by the people who's job it has always been to do such things. In this country the policies of all main British political parties are decided by The Royal Institute of International affairs, along with a few other affiliated high establishment organizations. They are quickly adopted by the political parties because establishment place men are installed within ALL political parties. This will include, the BNP, UKIP, and of course The Green Party, every bit as much as The Labour, Lib/Dum, and Conservative Party's.

You did not know this because the British media, especially the BBC have a long standing agreement with these corporatist sponsored high government entities to keep their existence and absolute political influence, a secret from the public.

It goes like this.

The establishment decide for one reason or another, usually simply so they can forever increase there almost infinite wealth and control over the WORLDS population and resources.

Then they select which party will pursue, which given side of the political debate.

After a given amount of time, it is then the same establishment which selects the policies that actually successfully happen. Which are nearly always that which they always intended to use in the first place. Democracy is indeed a complete con job carried out from the very top, all the way down to lowly Prime Minister level.

It is all rather clever really, and not at all new.

Brookes cartoons are the best, clever and very funny.

He also captures Gordon's leaden clumsiness perfectly.
