Why do UK party political broadcasts never hit home like this?

Lack of nudity probably...

Hat Tip: Beau Bo D'Or


Uh oh - just saw this worrying piece of smugness on Conservative Home

"Our deadliest political opponent leaves the stage

Tories should not be under any illusions as to the significance of what is happening. The Blair era is coming to an end and with it we are seeing the end of our party's most formidable ever opponent. For more than a decade he has confounded the Conservative Party at almost every turn. He has led deep raids into our natural territory - geographically and ideologically.

The Blair years have been the years of greatest trial for the Conservative Party. That is no coincidence. Politics is going to be different in the Post-Blair era. Our most deadly political opponent is about to leave the stage. That can only be good news."

The point that was missed of course was that Blair set up his departure brilliantly. If John Major could rescue the shambles of a parliamentary party and drag it into another election in a fighting mood, then how much more could Brown (or worse, John Reid) do so with Tony teeing up the succession so neatly.

Yes, Labour could dissolve into infighting, but more likely they will use this conference to bury the hatchet and prepare for a leadership contest. Whoever wins that bruising ordeal (Reid?) will have rightly earned their honeymoon period.

A lot hangs on D.Cs speech. Will it match last year's - hardly. So will it deliver?

Conference should be fun...

Gordon Brown - Presbyterian?

Watching the Brown speech I was transported back years to the Presbyterian kirk in Antrim. Where a worthy and terribly nice minister would propound on the message of the gospel in a worthy but dour way.

Brown mentioned that his dad was a minister - no kidding - the steady rhythm of much of his early speech, the flowing yet dull words punctuated by much heavy breathing was reminiscent of a Sunday morning sermon - but less exciting.

GB tried, as the main leadership candidate should do, to defuse the arguments against him (green issues, ID cards, leadership rows etc.) but what he neglected to mention was that in a fight against Cameron only one man will come out standing and it won't be Grumpy Gordon.

DC will do to GB what Blair did to Major - paint him into a corner and hammer away at his support till it falls to pieces. Sadly, Tony has left no time for a snap election, so if GB does get the top job (why oh why did I not take time to place a bet on Reid at 20/1?) Brown will have to suffer a long drawn out losing campaign.

Why CF is a failing organisation

Hat tip: Recess Monkey

This is why CF fails. This ad appeared courtesy of College Republicans at Stanford. It is funny, eye-catching and self-confident as any student political group should be if it is going to survive.

CF by contrast usually make a splash at Freshers then doesn't follow it up. The centre provides no new ideas, resources and little (if any) training. The CRs however take a proactive approach. For little effort, university campuses provide a fertile recruiting ground.

Knowing, as I do, that blogging tends to communicate ideas to the higher ups in this organisation, I hope that this year CF will start to take the business of student politics seriously.

Face of evil

This is the man who disrupted John Reid's speech yesterday. The media, like the often gormless morons they are, swarmed all over him for an interview - after all, who wants to hear the Home Secretary babble on about stopping Islamic Fascists from recruiting British youngsters when there is one in the room prepared to give his own 'I have a dream' speech.

Look at the video, you'll see the depths to which this guy can sink.

The sad truth is that in this country people like Abu Izzadeen have already won. As in Belfast 35 years ago, young men, leading lives with no future and no prospects and with no leadership from their own community are being seduced by the powerful message of terrorists.

Then it was the IRA and their Irish nationalism, now it is Al Qaeda and a host of splinter factions proclaiming holy war.

The difference of course is that for the IRA, victory was a definable political aim. At some point the 'freedom fighters' could be persuaded to lay down their arms as peace was negotiated.

Islamic terrorists are the holy warriors of God, who will stop short of nothing less than complete victory - converting all non-believers to their faith and killing those who refuse.

The real dissapointment is that in Labour's heartlands, the old men who are the 'community leaders' are desperately out of touch with the expanding population under-30. As a result, many reject both their parents and the country they live in, existing in a peculiar limbo of belonging nowhere.

The crude generalisations of radical teachings and the perceived strength of the Islamo-fascist message are an attractive prospect, and with the advent of suicide bombing even a tiny fringe of the large muslim population of this country represents a massive security risk.

The world united after September the 11th, and the possibility existed to engage Islamo-fascism both on the plains of Afghanistan and in a battle of ideologies. The second battle was the most important to win, just as it was in the Cold War or against 19th Century anarchists.

However, in a headlong rush to war with Iraq, the great western democracies have sacrificed their moral advantage, and are now bogged down in an uncertain and unwinnable war with Islamic terrorism.

I have heard two people try to engage the muslim communities in that important second battle, both Labour muslim MPs. John Reid tried, but came short. I wonder if anyone else will emerge to engage in the great struggle of our time.

Get Well Soon

For the survival of the Top Gear programme, and consequently the survival of British manliness, let's all hope that Richard 'The Hamster' Hammond gets better soon.

Richard managed to break the British landspeed record (for crashing) and is now seriously ill in hospital, though recovering.

Nob Watch: BBC Conferences Youth Panel

In another stunning example of why the BBC just can't help but be a bit crap the 'Party Conferences Youth Panel' has hoovered up three elegantly terrible candidates to cover one conference each.

Thankfully the Lib Dems get the worst of the lot, Sam Wheeler. Click on the link to have a look at his awful audition video.

Andrew Young - bit of a tosser

Thanks to losing Chairman candidate Caroline Hunt for bringing to my attention this blog -
Andrew Young, from Denton Texas has ended his blog in October 2004 with a post titled 'Politically Correct Racism'. I began to read it but the lack of paragraphs and good jokes put me off. In fact so boring was the blog that even the paragraphs about an ad for guitar strings featuring thong-clad girls was a real turn off.

More worrying was this effort

Which features several young children and a guys phone numbers in New York. Not too much to say about it apart from the second kid looks a bit odd.

My favourite is

This guy used to be, but now, after a music career that seems not to be going anywhere, he is relegated to .net status.

This Andrew Young is a cross between Kenny G and 'Siegfried and Roy'. Check out his pic:

But my favourite of all time - and the guy who gets the most google hits. Is this guy

Lib Dem Totty

The leading lights of the Lib Dem Totty list have been receiving the unwelcome attentions of bothe The Sun and Guido Fawkes.

Jo Swinson, Julia Goldsworthy, Kirsty Williams and Lynne Featherstone were in the firing line for perving blogmongs everywhere. However, one glaring omission seems to have escaped the copy editors - Sarah Teather.
The pint sized MP for some ex-labour slum has received a lot of coverage, some of it unwelcome, but surely any run-down of Lib Dem totty cannot be complete without her.

At only 4'10" she is lightweight and portable - like hand luggage - and according to Recess Monkey, also happens to be gagging for it.

Complaints to the Sun can be made to -

News Flash: Riots in Hungary - Politician Tells Truth

The Hungarian capital Budapest was experiences an uneasy calm after a day of rioting and looting following the admission by Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany.

Witness the most eloquent astatement ever made by an elected politician:

""There is not much choice. There is not, because we screwed up. Not a little, a lot. No European country has done something as boneheaded as we have.

"Evidently, we lied throughout the last year-and-a-half, two years... You cannot quote any significant government measure we can be proud of, other than at the end we managed to bring the government back from the brink. Nothing."

In a speech sprinkled with obscenities, Mr Gyurcsany says: "We lied in the morning, we lied in the evening."

Guido on the rack

Nobody likes being phoned by Guido, it usually means you're in the shit. However, when faced with the choice between being obliterated and merely losing a limb many people have no choice but to cooperate.

Thankfully the moustachioed one was in the mood for indulging a request and I managed to nab both him and Recess Monkey for an interview on CF TV.

An afternoon in the company of the two most scandalous bloggers in Christendom is also a chance to pick up the rumours and twisted tales of the next three months. Was a thoroughly enjoyable experience - though Recess did decide to back me for the chairmanship of CF. Which is a bit like Gerry Adams deciding to bless your kneecaps.
Stay tuned for some outlandish stories, the incoming chairman seems to be a favoured target...

Too taxing?

Lib Dem money for Female Candidates

An secretly recorded conversation at Lib Dem party conference:

"Speaker 1: All right everyone, settle down. I've called you all here to set out our proposed gimmick for the conference.

Speaker 2: Ah, but gimmicks are a disingenuous idea, deceitful to the taxpayer, a waste of....

Speaker 1: Shut it Huhney! There's a reason I'm in charge and it's not to listen to plebs like you!

Alright - gimmick is, we offer money for female candidates. This party desperately needs to up its female quota after the latest round of 'distasteful' press stories regarding certain people, this might be our way back...

Speaker 3: To be fair in my defence, I AM going bald...

Speaker 1: I've told you before, Ming's in charge. when I'm speaking I don't expect to be interrupted.

Speaker 3: Sorry.

Speaker 1: As I was saying, the Lib Dems are seen as a bunch of poofters and weirdos at the moment. We need to change that dramatically. Money up-front for female candidates will be a great way of showing our commitment to the progress of women in politics.

Speaker 4: I think I can be of help here. As one of only nine elected wom...

Speaker 1: Help? Course you can be of help, milk and three sugars.

Speaker 2: Coffee - black

Speaker 3: Any camomile tea?

Speaker 1: I've warned you...

Speaker 3: Sorry.

Speaker 4: Umm... that's not quite what I meant. You see as a party we need to reach out to women and minorities.

Speaker 1: Oh right, yes, of course - minorities, how remiss of me. Anybody know any black people?


Sweden is free

Goran Persson, Swedish prime minister is out of a job.

A centre-right coalition, led by the Moderaterna, has swiftly kicked him out of office at the latest elections. This is no doubt revenge for his shameful support for the 'Ja till Euron' campaign.

As a campaigner for the 'Nej till Euron' campaign I am delighted that this europe-loving lefty is taking the walk of shame.

Trouble is, the people now in power were also supporters of the Euro.

Roll on 2010...
