THE RATS GET WISE, FINALLY.
The Independent reports today that the BNP are half £1 million in debt and the banks, for once doing something useful are refusing to refinance the debt. With last year’s books not being signed off by the auditors could we at last be seeing the end of the nauseating scum that are the British National party. With many of their most high-profile members acting in the most natural way for them by jumping ship like the rats they are it all seems to be coming apart nicely. For the full article follow the link to the Independent’s piece by Cahal Milmo.

Finally the paper’s have something to write about concerning the Labour Party leadership race. On the day that ballot papers are sent out to those entitled to vote for the next Labour Party leader, David Miliband has had a veiled poke at his brother Ed in the Times (sorry no point giving you a link as you now have to pay to read the Times online). A very mild rebuke at what he perceives as his brother’s inability to leave the Labour Party comfort zone, at least the rest of the country gets a few column inches out of the media which has been obsessed, and rightly so with the effects of the Tory Lib Dem coalition cuts. But what was yesterday being heralded as a full-blown attack turns out to be a damp squib with no specifics. As usual with this particular leadership battle there is still very little substance to any of the arguments making it incredibly difficult to get a sense of the leadership abilities of any of the candidates.
The Labour Party seems to be struggling at the moment to find anyone either at Westminster or Holyrood who hasn’t had a severe charisma bypass.

Mirror mirror on the wall who's the fairest of them all ?
An article in yesterday’s financial Times pointed out that regardless of what Mr Osborne, Clegg and co are telling the voters, it will be the poorest in society who pay the highest price for the Con Dem cuts.

Look out Jock the bastard's got a sword fish
Could the present mackerel melee be the start of the next cod war or will it all turn out to be a storm in a teacup. I daresay that the Faroese will not be happy with losing £400,000 worth of fish, now apparently only fit for fish meal, but I don’t suppose we have too much to worry about Mr Salmond (no pun intended) has met with Norway’s Foreign Minister and maybe it will all turnout hunky-dory (pun intended).

The fall guy
Malcolm Rifkind attended a discussion ” Is a war ever justified” yesterday as part of the festival of politics at Holyrood. Stewart Lochhead who is doing reviews of the festival for Edinburgh guide was good enough to e-mail me and ask me to do a quick caricature of the unfortunate Mr Rifkind. I was happy to oblige and apparently the fall was the highlight of the evening.
You will find Stewart’s articles and lots more besides at Edinburgh guide.

I'll blow them out the sky, one way or another.
A small piece in the Telegraph yesterday pointed out that when asked Liam Fox refused to guarantee the future of the pride of the Royal Air Force, the Red Arrows. When asked if their future was secure he replied that he was unable to give a guarantee as everything was up for review. Hopefully that will include the pay scales of our slash happy coalition ministers.
