Whos running the country, the Grey Report

#1
As Harriet Harmen has gone on holiday today, and Lord Mendlscum is still mincing about on thr beaches of Corfu, the BBC web site, Nick Robinson/ Laura Kuenssenberg, are hinting that the reason the Gray report is being held up by No 10 is because nobody is driving the bus at this moment in time, god , you couldn't believe this shite if you read it in a book

Why do people think there needs to be some sort of 2IC, nothing that happens will require an immediate response, in fact Harman far from following her comds intent used the position to pursue her own agenda. Mandelson who is Prime Minister in all but name can run the country from Corfu because it's not a hands on position and anyway does anyone think that the Brown could do a better job?

You're quite right, there is no one driving the bus.

So the senior members of government will not give up a few days of their holidays for the good of this country,

BUT THEY DON'T MIND OUR BEST YOUNG PEOPLE GIVING UP THEIR LIVES

The answer to the question posed in the thread title is:

Mr. (UNELECTED) Mandelson and it matters not whether he is mincing about in Corfu, Coventry or Clacton on Sea, he is in charge. :x :x :x

Interesting comment here on the position (?) of Lord Mandleson:

"Is anyone actually missing Gordon Brown?

Is not life rather more pleasant without him grinding on about how he is getting on with the job, without ultra-feminist Harriet Harman telling men they are all useless, and without Lord Mandelson telling the Prime Minister and Harriet Harman that they both are?

But while Cranmer acknowledges that Ms Harmon has a degree of democratic legitimacy – having been elected to Parliament by the good people of Camberwell and Peckham, and to the position of deputy leader of the Labour Party by misguided members of that party – His Grace does not believe that the country has been governed by an unelected Peer of the Realm for almost 300 years.

When Queen Anne died on 1st August 1714, her successor, the Elector of Hanover (George I), was in his German dominion. Baron Parker of Macclesfield was designated Regent of Great Britain, Ireland and the realms beyond the seas until the new King was able to take the Crown. He reigned until 18th September, and was the last Peer to exercise sovereign power...

...until the advent of The Right Honourable the Baron Mandelson of Foy in the County of Herefordshire and Hartlepool in the County of Durham, First Secretary of State and Lord President of the Privy Council and Secretary of State for Business and Secretary of State for Innovation and Skills.

As of Monday, the Royal Prerogative will rest with him."

From the always sensible Cranmer blog: http://archbishop-cranmer.blogspot.com/

So, we have, for the first time in several hundred years, an unelected Peer running the Country. Socialist, eh, don't you just love those egalitarians?

I have just writen to my MP Julie Morgan, as this situation is a complete urine take of everthing that the Labour Party is supposed to stand for. Cameron must be laughing his parts off

'egalitarian' - I thought that's what the Monarchy was all about? The best gets the top job.

You don't get to be King or Queen without having the best armies, the most smarts and the most money. Of course, Labour have missed this point somewhat with their idea of 'egalitarianism' - ever since the advent of Gordon Brown, they treat our democracy as their personal fiefdom, us as their nuisance-causing serfs.

Never mind though, we are good for something after all, with our window taxes . . .

the Gray report is being held up
I wouldn't be in such a rush for that to get up and going if I were you. The last time Gray wrote anything on Defence it was the Robertson Review, though he heeded help with the spelling and punctuation. His only experience of Defence before that was as a freebie-loving journo, who gave the RAF a bit of a chuckle by being too fat to fit into a Tornado cockpit for a joyride. Instead he posed for pictures in a supersized 'photo-a-fatso' flight suit next to the thing.

He sucked up to Labour with his work for Robertson, skewing the thing to suit their cost-cutting policies, and now they're on the way out he's trying the same thing with the Tories by positioning himself as a cutter of bureaucracy and waste, bidding for a seat in the Lords. He won't get it though, but he'll never know why.

My bold above.

My hope is that Mr. Cameron is WATCHING, LISTENING and LEARNING from some of the more crass stupidities of this failed government. My fingers are crossed over this but, sadly, more in hope than in expectation.

The point I was making is that at the moment there is no body in the government with the authority to give the OK to release the report, their all on holiday and nobody is in charge

I can't help thinking we're better off with no one in charge rather than the slimy turds of New Labour running the UK.

Mandlesons incredible, no matter what kind of shady back door shenanigans (ooh er) he gets up to, the b@stard keeps coming back. Mandy, Harman and that slack jawed one eyed idiot with his weird manic grin, I think the UK can manage just fine without them.

Roll on the revolution etc etc.

In a nutshell, no, but since the electorate didn't chose Brown as PM either, at least it is consistent.

However, what a fascinating revelation. Thank you.

I reckon CQMS was spot on - Harmen has exploited fully the Broons absence on holiday to bolster her own aims.

Whilst normally quite a mild mannered guy, I would love to see this hag hanging from a cross on the Appian Way. I mean FFS who in their right mind would spare a micro-second to listen to her rants regarding the male gender when she herself as 3ic of the country / senior liebour MP (and possessed of some very strong opinions) had to pay some doris to draft her own speeches? She claimed over £127,000 in 2007/8, with £10k going to the chick who constructed key speeches for her to use. WTF? On what grounds was she elected if she can't speak publically or put a few coherent words together for a speech? She's plenty vocal enough when the opportunity presents itself to promote her own gain.

Back in the real world when are these scummers going to be brought down? It's my opinion that if during this afternoon in the pub, I should bump into Harriet Harmen (unfortunately very unlikely :roll: ), I shall drop the nut straight on the bridge of her very opinionated nose and kick her right in the fanny as she falls to the ground! Phew, I feel better now :D

(PS I've never ever raised my hand to the fairer sex but for her I'd make an enjoyable exception)
