>>BUT FIRST - STORMIN' CORBYN IS HERE!   Read the best of the comments from the British national media:

Boring British politics has come to life! With Stormin' Corbyn! Maybe, just maybe, there'll be a revolution against President Cameron's regime, by the people - you know, us plebs, the tax-payers, the ones who pay for 780 Lords quaffing tax-payer subsidised champagne for lunch, who pay for MPs subsidised bars and restaurants - and who pay our taxes. We're the folk who don't have tax havens, don't have multi-million£ homes in London, don't drive Lambos, don't have yachts, but we do pay our taxes. Maybe that's why.....


Not only has he changed the rules of the game, he has rendered dreary British politics lively.

President Cameron must be getting worried as he knows he only had 24% of voters voting for him. We other 76% could be easily persuaded to vote for Labour, so long as the Westminster Wafflers don't manoeuvre Corbyn out. What a lovely democracy we have - President Cameron is changing the constituency boundaries to favour his party and Labour is trying to fix the rules to keep Corbyn out. We can certainly never again accuse other countries of corruption.


Poor Corbyn. If he blows his nose, it will be reported as a Leftist blow. If he sticks his finger in his ear, it will be reported as he's getting a message from Marx. If he says 'um', it will be reported as he's not clear in his thinking, if he has to tie his shoelace, it will be reported as bad organisation and totally unsuitable for a man hoping to be a party leader, and if he can't eat a sandwich, it will be reported as a crime against 'the hard-working British family' - to use President Cameron's favourite phrase.


"George?"
"Yes, Dave."
"I don't like the look of this Corbyn fellow. He could agitate the plebs against us.  What dirty tricks can we use to discredit him?"
"Er. let me think...yes. How about saying the whole Labour election thing is fraudulent?"
"Excellent!"
"And, Dave, you could make him a Lord. A Lord can't lead a party in the House of Commons."
"Good thinking, George."


You can guarantee that every morning the 'blue-banner press' will be doing a hatchet job on Corbyn - which can only mean that Dave and his mogul cronies are feeling a bit worried. Why should that be? Perhaps because they fear that Corbyn will rally the plebs against the 1% who own us and run us, and slow down President Cameron's discriminatory plans for us all. (A Tory Minister whispered to me the other day that Dave wants to privatise the British people and sell them off to foreign oligarchs, like everything else.....)


Oh oh!  Looks like the dirty tricks brigades are out to scupper Corbyn.  What's the betting that the Westminster Wafflers in the Labour party find a way to avoid the leadership election (which by the way is a darn sight more democratic than our recent general election) and thereby stop Corbyn.  If they do, they might be surprised by the reaction - end of the Party. 


So the Tories are getting scared!  They think that Corbyn might interfere with President Cameron's discriminatory policies, his cramming the Lords with cronies, his changing the constituency boundaries, his creeping privatisation of the NHS, his desire to rule for ever, and so on. Well, look out, Mr. President, something is coming down the pike that you won't like and it's supported by we plebs - you know, the folk who pay taxes and know that you rule with only 24% of voter support.....


When Corbyn wins, the whole nature of Westminster politics will change - Cameron will find that his slender margin as government might not be enough to put through all his discriminatory policies. Corbyn may decide in due course that he is too old to run for PM at the next election - and will step aside for some new vibrant leader. Former LibDem voters may switch back from voting Tory out of desperation, and the 76% of voters who didn't vote Tory will feel someone is finally representing the interests of the people rather than the oligarchic 1%. A big change is coming and it isn't the death of Labour....


With the Tories muck-raking his economic policies (fat lot they know about economics!) and his own party leaders ganging up on him, and the old elephants, Blair and Brown and Campbell beating up on him, maybe he should start a new party. The People's Party.  He'd get 76% of voters and the Tories with their miserable 24% would die.  And us tax-paying plebs would at last be represented in parliament.  Wow!

THE HOUSE OF LORDS - WHAT IS IT?

there are 739 of them

their average age is 70

they cost the taxpayer at least £115k per annum each

they get paid £300 just for signing in - a person on the minimum wage (as millions are) gets £52 for an 8 hour day

they eat in taxpayer-subsidised restaurants

they drink taxpayer-subsidised champagne 

some of them are accused of pederasty

some of them are accused of pedophilia

many of them earn extra cash as company directors

the hereditary ones are descended from Norman mercenaries

the non-hereditary ones are party political placemen

Nobody understands what purpose they serve.

THE ARCHBISHOP OF HACKNEY WICK'S GREED SERMON His Grace has generously agreed to share it with us - definitely not to be missed - read His Grace's stuff here:

WESTMINSTER FOIBLES!

1. Fourteen MPs attended a recent debate on welfare.  645 attended the debate on a 10% rise for themselves.  And....

2. Far more hours were spent debating the ban on hunting foxes, than were spent debating the invasion of Iraq.

The result of the first was an indiscernible rise in foxes, the result of the second was FIVE MILLION orphans.
