More Good News For UKIP As IDS Has Gone Down The Plug Hole

IDS benefit plan fails
“Gloat all you like Farage, my dick is this big, nygh!” – IDS

It has been a good few days for Nigel Farage and his team. While some Labour and Conservative commentators are trying the anti EU Party did not do well in local elections, UKIP Candidates did better than expected in elections for local councils where in the majority of cases they were trying to unseat incumbents.

The real earthquake, if it happens, will come when results for the European Parliament elections are known. But with the Tories at each others throats and Labour in total disarray (and the party managements have plenty of clues as to what is to come) it is looking good for UKIP members and those of us who wanted to see the arrogant, compacent, corrupt and anti – British established parties of the LibLabConspiracy kicked up the arse.

But on top of all that, and leading fans of Greek myth to feel The Olympians must be supporting the anti EU cause (and that’s no surprise after the way the Euronazis in Brussels have shafted Greece), we learn that one of The Coalition’s flagship policies has gone down the toilet and is halfway to the sewage farm.

Oh well, here’s a song for the father of Benefits reform, Iain Duncan Smith:

Your Baby Has Gorn Dahn The Plug ‘ole(A MOTHER’S LAMENT)

(Writer Unknown – London Music Hall Song))
Recorded by Martin Carthy – 1964
Cream (vocal: Ginger Baker)- 1967 (lyrics below)

A mother was bathin’ her baby one night
The youngest of ten, a poor little mite
The mother was fat and the baby was fin
T’was nawt but a skellington wrapped up in skin

The mother turned round for the soap from the rack
She weren’t gone a minute, but when she got back
Her baby had gone, and in anguish she cried
“Oh, where is my baby?”, and the angels replied

Your baby has gorn dahn the plug’ole
Your baby has gorn dahn the plug
The poor little thing was so skinny and thin
He shoulda been bathed in a jug

Your baby is perfik’ly happy
He won’t need no bathin’ no more
He’s workin’ his way through the sewers
Not lost, just gone on before

Your baby has gorn dahn the drainpipe
And the chlorine is bad for his eyes
He’s havin’ a swim, and it’s healthy for him
He needed the exercise

Don’t worry ‘baht ‘im, just be ‘appy
For I know he is suff’rin’ no pain
Your baby has gorn dahn the plug’ole
Let’s hope he don’t stop up the drain
ALTERNATE VERSE:

Your baby is perfik’ly ‘appy
He won’t need a bath any more
He’s muckin’ abaht with the angels above
Not lost but gone before

A good day for ministers to bury bad news: IDS benefits plan in such chaos it’s classed as beyond failure

‘Iain Duncan Smith’s flagship welfare reform is going so badly that a watchdog has had to a create a whole new category to describe its failures.

The Work and Pensions Secretary’s scheme to replace six separate benefits with a single Universal Credit was sent back to the drawing board last year following serious delays and cost overruns.

The Major Projects Authority (MPA), the quango that assesses how effectively large schemes are being implemented, yesterday concluded that its worst rating was not bad enough to accommodate all the failings associated with Universal Credit.

The fact that the Government published the damning study amid the announcement of local election results led to accusations that ministers were seeking to ‘bury’ bad news.’
