Time to Send in the Bailiffs!

This just makes me smile. Couldn't have happened to a better bunch of people. :) But I mean really, who would have expected them to demand their money back after the whole dodgy affair was splashed over the papers. If you can't trust a shady multi-millionaire businessman trying to buy influence nowadays, who can you rely on? Completely ruined my faith in humanity. :wink:

Not that the rank and file Labour party members are bad people, mates with quite a few, but this is just the sort of thing I think Tone and his little inner circle of ********* need to give them a bit of a shake. Hell, maybe if they get their majority reduced a bit they might have to *gasp* start listening to people.

The tag-line at the end of the article suggesting that a cash strapped, debt ladened Labout Party have no remaining option but to turn to the Unions for financial help does not bode well.

Ahem,

Trying to think of something serious to inject.

Failing.

Lips upturning.

Can't help myself.

Must think of something.

No

Sod it.

HA HA HA HA HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAH!

Love it.

All is not lost. If you want to help Tony out of the mire, you can still do your bit

I was wondering, if all wealthy business people (Labour, Tory, Lib Dem, 'party in power') who have sought to buy political influence call in their 'loans', whither our so-called democracy? Maybe we should just call a spade a spade, and have a plutocracy?

...definition 2 seems to fit the bill here.
It didn't work!

They won't take my old BCI creditcard.

So true. This little media grenade will make some folks think that the time for Labour is over and we need a new sheriff in town. Pack your bags Cherie and Tony :twisted:

And who's out there that's cleaner than clean? I suppose you'd have to go for the least corrupt and untrustworthy, but that's not an easy decision. Maybe it's time to take to the streets...

The problem for Labour is that the union political levy, that used to be theirs, no longer finds it's way to them. Then again, when it did, the party worked for the 'working man' against other forces.

The key still seems to be the Sun insofar as who gets elected, but of course the race could be narrowed if we exclude bankrupt parties, for my reading of the current situation means we have Liberals (or whatever they're called this month), BNP, UKIP and Monster Raving Loony in the next General election.

What fun - if only, if only!

Did you notice this bit
Labour is drawing up proposals for a reform of political funding. A review is expected to recommend state funding.
That should bugger-up the hairdressers. Maybe chuck him a MBE for services to hairy wives.

Just to balance it (slightly), there's also Socialist Alliance and Respect

(edited to say: they may struggle to secure funding - unless the state (taxpayer) foots the bill)

We are all amazed at the mess that Labour has left. This is a further example of how they cannot take care of their own house, but as us to place our faith in them running the country. That is one hell of a request.

Normally I like to be kissed before being screwed :lol:

It would make a change from the mickey mouse democracy we've got. :p

According to William Rees-Mogg writing in the MoS, there is despair in the run-up to the elections.

A Labour council candidate has written in Tribune (old leftie magazine) that "workers are thin on the ground. Leaflets are delivered by a scratch team of candidates and their families...the ward party is virtually moribund, regular meetings a thing of the past...the ward (should) be solid Labour. Instead it is marginal with the Liberal Democrats."

Bliar will destroy the Labour Party before he is taken down.

Can anyone tell me the difference between "a group of wealthy individuals making loans to influence policy" and "Trade Unions donating sums to influence policy"?

Why is one more corrupt than the other? How many Trade Unionists are there in the House of Lords?

That was effectively done when John Smith died and he took over
