Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg, whose party opposed the net migration target, said the figures were "very embarrassing for the Conservatives". "They made a huge fanfare about it and they were warned, warned by me and others privately don't do this it doesn't make any sense," the deputy prime minister told LBC radio.

"They've made a commitment and they have failed spectacularly to deliver it."

Hmmn, who to believe? The Prime Minister or his underling?

the figures were "disappointing" and blamed a rise in EU migration - and Lib Dem "constraints".

Warming up nicely...

Politics Live on the BBC

"Turning to Europe, Suzanne Evans says the UK is "more than just a star on someone else's flag" - she says she wants to see the country "freed from the demands of a decaying and deluded EU". She recites a list of prime ministers since Ted Heath, and says: "By one treacherous treaty after treacherous treaty they handed power that should still be vested in parliament, in Westminster, in the people of Britain, over to Brussels." And she adds that Labour and the Conservatives are the true parties of "little Englanders" - UKIP "aren't the ones who want to stay in the shadows jumping at Frau Merkel's every command"."

Apparently half the yanks like Farage.

I did, but now that the Republicans have shown interest i'm not so sure. Nice to see you're paying attention though. :)

I don't think that poster is a good shot either.

I like the cut of this woman's Jib :-))

NHS’s answer is in Uranus

THE Tory MP David Tredinnick has claimed astrology could be the answer to NHS overcrowding. Sure. And the Bank of England could start setting interest rates according to the entrails of animals, while we can stop environmental Armageddon with some virgin sacrifices. I’d suggest Tredinnick could cure his own ailments with a lobotomy, but the evidence suggests he may already have had one.

Steady on there old chap, please try & keep up to date if you want to win an election that is

As I have always said, if you want to genuinely know about politics then don't get all your information from newspapers, they will only tell you what they want you to know, or produces a juicy headline. Of course there will be some here who will rejoice and say good! Raze the place to the ground, and make sure all the MP's are in it at the time. But of course those kind of anti-social, anti establishment types will never be happy until they see the downfall of a society that they detest because they don't and can't fit into it.


Thank you for being true to form. It would have been a +1 but for the above, therefore a well deserved -

-10.

It's why I will continue to rubbish the pillocks that occupy both houses! It is as you say, a well known famous landmark yet time is passing & nothing is getting done to protect it...


...they do know how to fiddle their expenses though!

The Unions would never allow it.

Don't you mean "Union leaders" as the ordinary members do have "some" intelligence otherwise why have you renewed your membership?

I continue my Union membership because I believe in collective bargaining, they have a good pensions advice helpline, and a generous death grant.

That was obvious, especially to another union member. You have often harangued others for generalising, so be specific in future & defer from labelling others.

By doing that, there are times, such as this one, where you lump yourself in amongst those you label! How does it feel to be a useless union muppet that won't allow a famous landmark to be saved?

OMG there is justice sometimes. Mitchell was a nasty foul mouthed son of a bitch that behaved above his station. Good for that PC. In future they should install microphones and recorders on the gates.

Damages

Mitchell

I'm still dubious. Only two people really know what happened, and it will remain that way.

This line amused me:
Weighing up the competing claims, the judge said PC Rowland was "not the sort of man who would have had the wit, imagination or inclination to invent on the spur of the moment an account of what a senior politician had said to him in temper".
Basically, the policeman in question is too thick to have made it up.

I wouldn't know, I'm not one, I am simply a non-activist retired member who pays his dues. Some of us were or are self admitted stroppy shop stewards, so I'll leave muppetism to the likes of them.


It is more likely to be funded under a Tory government than a Labour one that is for sure. The Unions would never allow it.

Another one who runs a party down due to union power, yet, at the same time avail themselves of those union benefits.

Now, while i agreed with Cameron for insisting that the Greens should be included if UKIP were, this latest turn seems rather petulant!

David Cameron scared of TV election debates, say rivals
David Cameron's political rivals have accused him of running scared after saying he will only take part in one televised debate ahead of the election.
Downing Street has rejected a head-to-head clash with Ed Miliband and said the PM will only take part in a debate featuring seven party leaders.


I was listening to this unfolding on Radio 4's Today programme this morning, Paddy Ashdown popped up to say that if Cameron doesn't want to debate with Miliband then Clegg would be happy to fill in. Others have suggested that if Cameron fails to show up then it should be Ed Miliband and an empty chair. I'm not sure about that second option, i think the empty chair stands a pretty good chance!

Cameron was all in favour of debates five years ago. In fact i remember him using words like 'essential' to describe them. They were all set to go, strange he should be running now, Cameron had gotten the greens involved, albeit with the consequence of the SNP and Plaid Cymru being involved too. I wasn't sure about that, to be involved in a national debate, surely one should be a national party. What's Plaid Cymru going to say on questions about HS2 and the like?

You do delight in trying to twist peoples words around to suit your own agenda, when on the back foot.

For someone who was an "active" shop Steward it is interesting to look back over some of your posts, where you demonstrate quite often a strong right wing bias in what you see as wrongs in this country. No wonder at times your mind appears to be in a confused state.


You mention this many times on your posts regarding quite a few posters. Care to tell one & all what "our Agenda's" are?

You cannot see anything anyone posts without slipping that "word" in your replies. Are you that far gone in that you cannot believe people can call it as they see it without an agenda?

You really do like the sound of your own words. There is a lot wrong with this country, & it's mainly too many like you in the wrong positions of authority. This is not Victorian times & it's about time you entered the 21st century as your comments on the rape thread has shown - For a man of your maturity, that's sad.

For a person of your immaturity that is quite expected.

By your own admission you spent most of your army life ducking and diving trying to keep out of trouble. Since then you have spent most of your adult life on your own during the day as a driver in a train cab, or a lorry cab. It is hardly surprising that you find it difficult to relate to real people. Please don't take it out on me. Your problem, not my fault.

Don't forget all that lovely exercise delivering your mail or your early morning pint.

Delivering electoral leaflets at 10am when it is still 32F is no fun I can assure you. But then again it is far preferable to be doing something useful in society than hiding behind everyone elses comments. Early morning pints are of course a fiction of your imagination, but late night tipples you have admitted to before.

So delivering milk at 4am or post at 8am (when we had a useful mail system) is not useful to society? What damned planet are you living on?
