Remain Alliance Implodes: Caroline Lucas Reveals Lib Dems Hate Brexiteers

Questioned about the prospects of the so – called Remain Alliance in the imminent General Election, Green Party MP and former leader Caroline Lucas delivered a foul mouthed rant attacking Liberal Democrat leader and wee hag fra’ Fife, Jo Swinson, for her manifesto pledge to revoke Brexit if her party is elected to govern us. While speaking to a potential voter Ms Lucas criticised Jo Swinson for insisting that the Liberal Democrats would revoke Brexit if voted into power.

in an interview with UK news and gossip website Joe.co.uk, Ms Lucas was asked a rambling question on the early progress of the Remain Alliance campaign:

“The Liberal Democrats have been the biggest spenders on Facebook so far. I can understand that as [Ms Swinson ] is a new party leader, people don’t know her very well. So it is an opportunity to get her face out there and get her recognised. What do you think Caroline, how are they getting on so far?”

Caroline Lucas replied: “The position of revoking Brexit as a manifesto pledge, at that point I just felt that this is taking party interest above national interest to such an “unforgivable degree. To be honest, if you wanted to send a message to 17.4 million people that you don’t give a f*** about what they voted for, why don’t you just say so?”

Despite the outburst by the respected and popular Green Party MP, viewers of the video were not quick to criticise Lucas.

One Twitter user said: “If that is the case, Caroline, the Greens should break out of the Remain pact with Plaid and the Liberal Democrats and stand in competition against Swinson.

After all, the pact is only a Lib Dem power trip and Caroline Lucas has been totally honest.”

That comment will resonate with many voters who in the referendum supported Remain; they are aware their side lost but claim Leave voters did not understand what they were voting for and have campaigned for another referendum. While Boggart Blog does not agree, having always taken the line that the EU is an undemocratic political organisation committed to establishing a bureaucratic dictatorship in Europe. In 2016 the nation voted by a narrow majority to Leave the EU. It is reasonable for people who voted remain to campaign for ANOTHER VOTE, but utterly unreasonable and hypocritical for the Liberal Democrats to announce that in the (extremely unlikely,) event of their winning a majority in the General Election they would simply ignore that Leave voting majority and cancel Brexit is illiberal and undemocratic.

The Liberal Democrats ceased to have anything in common with the Liberal Party of Lloyd George and Gladstone long ago, but under Jo Swinson they appear to have more in common with Hitler’s National Socialists or Mussolini’s Fascists than with the Liberal Party under any of its leaders.

How Much Does The UK Actually Send To The EU

Big kerfuffle this week over Conservative leadership contender Boris Johnson facing trial for his claim, during the EU Referendum campaign, that Britain sends £350million a week to Brussels. Originally the Remainers claimed somebody in the Leave camp had said all the money would go to the NHS. Nobody actually said that but if fanatics want something to be true, they can easily convince themselves it is.

The claim is in fact true but misleading. If the amount paid into the EU budget is taken, then it is close to £350million a week. Our net contribution (i.e. after the amount paid by the EU to fund various EU supported projects means the net amount we contribute to the EU is somewhat less. However that £350million is not the full story:

There are sheeple who want to remain in the EU at any price, and then there are people who understand the EU

I am not sure people really are up for reading EU related documents or a whole load more people would be less excited about the EU. If people read the chequers plan and the political declaration they would know the only people who leave the EU are the financial sector. Everyone else stays in without a vote or veto for two years whilst we negotiate the long term deal…

The Return Of Champagne Charlie

It has been a long time since Boggart Blog wrote about Champagne Charlie Kennedy, the former Lib Dem leader who inspired the party’s breakthrough from a fringe party with 20 seats in Parliament, mostly occupied by oddballs, mavericks and non – conformists, to a bunch of almost sixty sellouts who were happy to prop up one of the establishment parties in government, in return for a morsel of power.

Still, Kennedy was a decent man and a good leader. Unfortunately it all became to much for him, and in 2006 he stepped down having succumbed to the allure of the demon alcohol (still nobody has accused him yet of being involved in the Westminster Paedophile Ring so there’s something to be said for being permanently pissed.

We at Boggart Blog, who are not completely without compassion despite what our detractors may say,) feel somewhat responsible for Kennedy’s downfall. It must have been a terrible blow to his ego when we confused him with the ginger haired child actor who played Victoria Sugden in the soap Emmerdale. Obviously he suffered PTSD after reading that blog.

Emmerdale’s Victoria Sugden (left) – Charles Kennedy (right)

A few days ago Charles Kennedy popped up as a guest on BBC political panel show Question Time. He came across as ‘tired and emotional’. Some of the comments about him in internet discussion threads were deplorable however, like this exchange for example.

Boss Hogg • a day ago

“A Lib Dem source said ‘It was quite clear that he was not his usual self last night’.”

Confused, incoherent, and pissed. Seems he was exactly his usual self.

Sobloodyangry Boss Hogg • 21 hours ago

As soon as he opened his mouth, I said to the Mrs, ‘He’s blotto’.

Paul 1 Sobloodyangry • 20 hours ago

It took you that long? He’s always blotto! Which is at least some excuse. Anna Soubrey has no excuse at all!

Jingleballix Paul 1 • 10 hours ago

Soubrey is a complete and utter witch, and Natalie Bennett is a boring, ranting, incompetent dullard……I’d need a drink if I was going on TV with them, imagine being in the same green room.

A song for Charles Kennedy:
CHAMPAGNE CHARLIE

(Spoken)
I’ve seen a deal of gaiety throughout my noisy life,
With all my grand accomplishments I ne’er could get a wife;
The thing I most excel in is the P. R. F. G. game-
A noise all night, in bed all day, and swimming in champagne.

Chorus.
For Champagne Charlie is my name,
Champagne Charlie is my name;
Good for any game at night, my boys,
Champagne Charlie is my name,
Good For any game at night, my boys,
Champagne Charlie is my name;

The way I gained my title, ‘s by a hobby that I’ve got
Of never letting others pay, however long the shot;
Whoever drinks at my expense are treated just the same,
From dukes, lords,to cabmen down,I make them drink champagne
For Champagne Charlie is my name, &c.

From coffee drunk in supper rooms, from Poplar up to Pale,
All the girls on seeing me say what a champagne swell!”
The notion ’tis of every one, if ’twere not for my name,
And causing so much to be drunk, they’d never make champagne.
For Champagne Charlie is my name, &c.

Perhaps you fancy what I say is nothing else but chaff,
And only done, like other songs, to merely raise a laugh;
To prove that I am not in jest, each man a bottle of Cham.
I’ll stand, fiz round! yes, that I will, and stand it like a lamb.

For Champagne Charlie is my name etc.

Nick Clegg Promises Us Anything We Want If Lib Dems Win The Election

According to The Currant Bun today,

“Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has said his party will abolish jail sentences for drug possession if he wins the next election. The Liberal Democrats proposal would lead to prison sentences abolished in England and Wales even for possession of Class A drugs such as heroin and cocaine.”

Can’t fault the lad for trying. But let’s be realistic, the Liberal Democrat could promise each and every one of us everything we have always desired, a million pound, a Ferrari, a villa in Majorca, Charity from Emmerdale dressed in Agent Provocateur lingerie, a gold plated iPad, a box of chocolates and a long stemmed rose, a perpetual motion engine, a round tuit, everlasting youth and undiminished virility, anything – so long as it carries the proviso “if we win next year’s election.”

Because after five years of observing Mr. Clegg’s idea of keeping his election promises, nobody is going to fall for it.

Just as an aside, UKIP won a local council by election in Worthing last night. This is hardly significant but coming alongside a sudden eagernes among the main party leaders to be seen taking a tougher line on immigration, it is quite amusing.

As John Harris, one of the Guardian’s less fanatical writers commented today, “attempts by Labour to tackle UKIP head-on by trying to appear tough on immigration could backfire as “there are few spectacles less convincing than lefty-liberals affecting to get tough” on this and that, while actually dying inside.”

And just to remind you what a leftie trying to appear tough while dying inside looks like here’s a reminder of Ed Miliband’s attempt to get tough on a bacon sarnie.

Et Tu Lembit – Lib Dem Chief Alien Abductee Plots Against Clegg

Liberal Democrat activists are planning an attempt to make it easier to oust Nick Clegg as leader.

Ex-MP and Cheeky – girl shagger Lembit Opik is behind the move, which would allow a few hundred people attending the party’s annual conference to give the leader the boot.

A few hundred Lib Dems? Looks like Nick’s job is safe for the next ten years then.

I’ll name that Huhne In One

via the wonderful Anna Raccoon:

This is a text sent by an Oxford University student to his dear old Dad this week, sent in the wake of a rather high profile court case.

Leave me alone, you have no place in my life and no right to be proud. It’s irritating that you don’t seem to take the point. You are such an autistic piece of s**t. Don’t contact me again, you make me feel sick.

All together now, Ooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Onesie Clegg Goes From Bad To Worse

It has ben a bad week for Liberal Democrat leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, bad even by his standards. And it is getting worse.

After taking part in an LBC radio phone in Mr. Clegg was first cornered and forced to admit the party’s performance was woeful. Later in the session he was accused of patronising voters.

A Sheffield University student named Lauren Archer said Lib Dem policy initiatives were “tokenistic” and accused the Government of discouraging young people from gaining qualifications by abolishing the educational maintenance allowance and increasing tuition fees.

“It seems as if the coalition is trying to tell them that higher education is not for them,” said Miss Archer. Mr Clegg’s snarky response gave the impression he thought little people like Ms Archer had no right to question their betters.

She later Tweeted: “Must say, I really enjoyed being treated as if I had the political knowledge of a five-year-old.”

To cap it all Clegg was then outed as the one of a onesie, one of those adult sized romper suits the metropolitian elite have taken to wearing when they feel the need to curl up in the foetal position and suck their little thumbs.

What might Nick Clegg look like in his onesie. Boggart Blog’s insider at Lib Dem HQ sent us this picture.

All together now … … Awwwwwwww Bless.

Double Standards Or Getting Priorities Right?

It has been well reported that Conservative and Liberal Democrat Ministers in the Coalition government will boycott the Euro 2012 football extravaganza in protest at the racism displayed bt fans in the host nations, Poland and Ukraine.

It has been less well reported that the boycott will be lifted if England make it through to the quarter finals.

So now we know that there is nothing more important than combatting racism , right. Unless of course it involves giving struggling politicians a photo opportunity and a chance to bask in reflected glory.

Environment Minister Resigns. Environment Shouts ‘There Is A God’

Liberal Democrat Chris Huhne resigned this morning from his role as Energy Secretary after being charged alongside his ex-wife Vicky Pryce with perverting the course of justice over speeding cover-up allegations. Mr Huhne and Miss Pryce have both been charged with the same offence after Miss Pryce allgeged that he asked her to take speeding points on his behalf. They will appear before Westminster Magistrates Court on February 16th.

The pair now face the prospect of a criminal trial over allegations that they conspired to pervert the course of justice. The offence carries a maximum life sentence.

This morning, soon after the charges were announced by the Criminal Prosecution Service (CPS), Mr Huhne resigned his Cabinet position. He told the press after his announcement: “I am innocent of these charges and I intend to fight them in the courts and I am confident a jury will agree. So as to avoid any distratction to my official duties or my trial defence, I am standing down as Energy and Climate Change Secretary. I will of course continue to serve my constituents in Eastleigh. That is all I have to say.” If found guilty and given a jail sentence Mr. Huhne will have to reliquish his Parliamentary seat.

The alleged offence is said to have taken place in March 2003 and is unlikely to have ever come to the attention of the police had Miss Pryce, who separated from Mr Huhne in 2010, not made allegations in a Sunday newspaper last year.

She told the Sunday Times that Mr Huhne had asked someone “close to him” to take the points so he could avoid a driving ban. It later emerged she was apparently referring to herself.

While Huhne continues to protest his innocence no date will be set for the by election in his consituency. Boggart Blog sympathises with the former ministers perdicament even though we have pilloried him mercilessly for his zealot’s belief in the efficacy of wind turbinesand his determination to plant a forest of these monstrosities on every beautiful upland landscape in Britain. To show we have no hard feelings towards him we have sent Mr. Huhne a copy of Oscar Wilde’s “The Ballad Of Reading Gaol

Lib-dem-fam

Nick Clegg, we hear, is planning to rebrand the Liberal Democrats in the style of Oxfam. We can see where he is coming from, Lib Dem, Ox Fam, there’s a certain siliratity. But would it be a vote winner.

Oxfam says: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, give a man a fishing net and he can take it down the market and sell it, use some of the money to buy booze and the rest to buy some fun with a street girl, get cirhossis and an STD, die and never know hunger again.

Nick Clegg says: When David Cameron said I could be Deputy Prime Minister I got an erection.

Can’t see it being a vote winner somehow.

BTW I wonder if Oxfam have ever thought it’s eff all use giving a man a fishing net when he lives in a drought stricken region?

(OK, I’m in a Jeremy Clarkson mood today.)

Nanny State Is Alive And Well And Has Morphed Into Supernanny

Last summer Boggart Blog announced that our old enemy Nanny State was terminally ill, Dave and Nick had switched off her life support and it would only be a metter of time before we danced on her grave.

We could not have been more wrong.

Throughout New Labour’s thirteen years in power Nanny State ruled with a rod of iron. We were subjbected to a constant barrage of hectoring and finger wagging that made Maggie Thatcvher look like a rank amateur.

Nanny lectured us ever week about what food we should and should not eat, how much alcohol was safe, how we should raise our kids, where and with whom and how often we should have sex (the Gaybour wing of the Labour movement never managed to make homosexuality compulsory but they were moving that way), how cigarettes, cigars and pipe tobacco were modern manifestations of Enochian demons (though cannabis was OK so long as those smoking it were ‘right on’ people.

Nanny also lectured us about how we all had a responsibility to live forever without getting sick and how we should all aspire to go to university to earn a degree in leisure centre management with modern dance or something similar.

Many people greeted with relief the election of the Conservatives – Lib Dem coalition especially as they started to make positive noises about rolling back the stupidities of politically correct thinking and the overbearing protectiveness of Nanny State and replacing her with a renewed respect for individual freedom. It sounded great. It sounded too good to be true in fact.

Whenever elections produce a change of government we all assume a new broom will sweep away all the rubbish left behind by the last lot. This is not true of course, the very same people, the desk jockeys, box tickers, paper shufflers and bean counters are still running the country. We just have different faces spouting the bogus statistics cooked up by the bureaucratic empire builders to justify their latest control freak schemes to expand the state. Thus our hopes that Dave and Nick would bludgeon Nanny to death were dashed. Those early promises had been too good to be true. Nanny State cannot die but worse, she has morphed into Supernanny State.

David (Shiny – face) Cameron, his Mini Me Nick Clegg and their pusillanimous cohorts have pulled off the seemingly impossible feat of supplying Nanny State and her evil Politically Correct Thought Police force with an even more freedom-loathing, mind controlling agenda. Cameron calls it nudging and since the Conservative conference last September he had had his nudger out and pointed it and everybody who shows signs of wanting to think for themselves. The Coalition’s desire to nudge the populace towards something called a ‘Big Society’ makes New Labour’s prissy and prudish pokenosery seem almost libertarian and.

2011 looks like going down in history as The Year of the Nudge, the year of government agencies using Derren Brown-style powers of suggestion to trick ordinary, sane people of Britain into adopting a state-approved lifestyle that includes healthy-eating, bike-riding, never drinking more units of alcohol that the government’s arbitrary and unscientific ‘safe limit’, burning smokers at the stake and rewarding people for grassing up to the Thought Police anybody who looks as if they might be having too much fun. Living the Nanny sanctioned life will guarantee you health care, welfare benefits and a state burial should you ever need them.

Now the next bit gets really scary. The Con – Dem nation government have created a Behavioural Insight Team inside Downing Street. Inspired and advised by George Orwell’s 1984 Richard Thaler, co-author of the phenomenally successful book Nudge: Improving Decisions About Wealth, Health and Happiness, these faceless suits aim not only to change people’s behaviour but to “change the way citizens think” (to quote Big Brother Clegg himself).

Earlier in the year according to a report in The Independent, it was decided the Thought Police will use various “mental techniques” and “psychological tricks” to “alter our behaviour” – for example, by offering less well-off shoppers health vouchers to encourage them to buy Hellman’s Shite Light Mayonnaise rather than a six Carlsberg Specials, or by changing our local infrastructure to make it harder to drive a car and easier to ride a bike; or by having cashpoint machines ask us: “Would you like to make a donation to a charity?”

It’s a great pity the remake of The Prisoner shown on television last year was no more than a cesspit of Hollywood cliches; the original would have had far more to say about life in the modern Nanny State.

In the past, the revelation that there was a Behavioural Insight Team at the heart of government would have set alarm bells ringing. It would have brought to mind the worst excesses of the Soviet Union (which treated political dissent as a mental illness to be corrected) or Nazi Germany. The echoes of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four are too obvious. In that novel, O’Brien, a member of ‘The Inner Party’ says to the central character, Winston Smith: “We create human nature Winston. Men are infinitely malleable.”

1984 was written in 1948. No wonder teachers in the Nanny SWtate education system tell children there is no point in reading books written before they were born.

Cameron and Clegg have merely added a bit of Politically Correct spin to Big Brother’s authoritarian view of human minds minds as clay to be moulded into shapes designed by the elite, our New Unhappy Lords as G. K. Chesterton described them.

A document leaked from the Cabinet Office says that because the masses make decisions “outside of conscious awareness” (Newspeak for. we’re not capable of thinking things through), the government should aim to become our “surrogate willpower”, making decisions on our behalf. In short, the authorities should colonise our minds and do our thinking for us.

As the slogan of Big Brother’s regime put it: “Freedom Is Slavery”
