    I approve of this trolling, Mark.

    Politician 1, date A: “Feel good rhetoric”
    Politician 2, date B: “Feel good rhetoric”

    If you squint really hard, you can almost see some news.

    You’d hardly expect two politicians seeking office to say anything different Would you?. Even if it something that has never happened AND never will or can

    President Obama is doing much better than we have come to expect from an American President. The world is fortunate to have him instead of McCain or Romney.

    Given that class is the major divider in Britain, similar words mean something quite different (although still good) in the US, where few people recognise anyother class than the “middle class” and distinctions such as region vs region, state vs state, and above all race, play a much great role in political like and thought.

    reminds me of a phrase `Mr Miliband I knew Barack Obama, Mr Miliband you’re no Barack Obama`

    As Scottish Labour’s latest video shows, it’s 36 years since Jim Callaghan’s government was brought down with a vote of no confidence. This was won by one vote, in which the SNP supported Margaret Thatcher and the Tories. Here’s Michael Foot’s speech from this day:

    The Tories won’t deliver a 7-day a week NHS, they’ll cut it

    With forty days to go, David Cameron is desperate to run away from his dismal record on the NHS. After five years in Downing Street, he stood in Manchester today and had the cheek to make all the same promises on a seven-day NHS. No-one will be taken in by it. People know that not only did this Government not deliver a seven-day NHS, they spent five years taking it backwards. It’s now harder to get a GP appointment from Monday to […]

    Scottish Labour’s latest video: 36 years today since the SNP voted with the Tories to bring down Callaghan’s government

    Today it is 36 years since Jim Callaghan’s government was brought down by a vote of no confidence, resulting in the general election months later that brought Margaret Thatcher to power. The government lost the vote to the Conservatives by one – 310 to 311.  Scottish Labour have produced a video showing that the 11 SNPs at the time voted with Thatcher, helping to usher in 18 years of a Tory government. Here’s the video in full

    Labour demand explanation for Tories’ proposed disability cuts

    A document has been leaked revealing which benefits the Tories are considering scrapping. This is part of the £12bn cut to the welfare budget they would implement by 2017/18 if they were to win May. It suggests that disability benefits and a regional benefits cap would be at the top of the list. The BBC have found that the document, prepared by civil servants at the request of the Conservative party, suggests restricting the number of people eligible to claim […]

    Labour produce a round-up of David Cameron’s terrible week

    It really hasn’t been the best week for David Cameron, one that he’d most likely rather forget. But since we’re in the middle of a general election campaign, it was always unlikely the opposition would let him get away with doing that. To commemorate Cameron’s week, the Labour party have produced a round-up for him (and anyone else who might have missed some of the highlights) here. It includes gaffes like the ‘accidental retirement’ announcement he made in his kitchen on […]
