Neville Chamberlain

Aww, look at his little face :-) xxx

Tony Blair's said some words to the BBC, which the Guardian have dutifully re-spunked out of their news cock. You don't need to read them, you know the gist.

Quote

Also offered his views on the coming force in British politics:

Thank you.

Some classic Kieth in there amongst Tony's wittering:

QuoteAsked about shadow cabinet ministers reportedly claiming he was "boring voters to death", Sir Keir replied: "I was sitting around a big table with CEOs from some of the biggest bodies and corporations around this country.

"And we were having a very serious discussion about what they expect from government. None of them said 'a few more jokes, please', 'a bit of a laugh'... They all said we want a government which has a very clear sense of its mission. Boring wasn't on the agenda."

Sebastian Cobb

Still sounding like a patronising secondary head then.

When I read anything Starmer has said, I hear it in Matt Forde's voice. I know Forde voices Starmer in Spitting Image, but Starmer and Forde have fused into one entity in my mind. An amalgamation of pure centrism.

Old Thrashbarg

Was it really a "big table" or is that just classic Starmer over-exuberance, the exciting, engaging, non-boring person that he is?

I'm starting to read it in the intentionally slightly poor Duncan Smith's voice.

"what do you say to people who say voters dislike you?"
"sod them all, CEOs love me!"

leader of a party called "labour"

QuoteAnd we were having a very serious discussion about what they expect from government

They were having a discussion about what the CEOs expect from a Labour government - not even attempting to be subtle or circumspect about it, is he?

I'm beginning to think that this Keir Hardie fellow is less left-wing than I'd been led to believe.

I know doctors, lawyers, dentists - important people.

Buelligan

Well, at least Crobbins' not running things, eh?

a recently scary thing about Starmer is that he's shown himself to be someone who is overly taken and flattered by people taking him to be an important man. obviously loves status, loves the thought of himself of PM. those following his career more closely than me probably not surprised by this in the least but its a bit shocking how open he is. blair and cameron at least moderated their obsession with image until they were elected. starmer seems to think he doesnt need to

I saw Starmer buying lunch at Unison headquarters once. Which I think is in his constituency.

He was on his own.

A big table and some of the biggest bodies. Ooooh! I'm all impressed now.

Blumf

Very important men with very expensive suits.

Sebastian Cobb

You wouldn't know these very important businessmen they go to another school.

Ferris

Don't suppose they run FirstRail or P&O?

A school with very big tables.

Buelligan

Because we can't have jam tomorrow unless the important businessmen 'n girls are making a big important profit, children. 

That is why we have never sorted out looking after the vulnerable and poor, because we've never, ever, ever, managed to make those important people a whopping big enough profit.  Simples.

If we all club together though and wish really hard, vote for Special Keith, maybe Santa will come this year!  What do you think?  Shall we try it again?



Andrew Ridgeley's let himself go... gammony.

I've worked out who he reminds me of:



The very boring & wooden PC who featured in later series of Heartbeat.


Buelligan

He reminds me of a self-serving turncoat cunt.
