Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

I like Eric Pickles, I really do. He is making life uncomfortable for hundreds of thousands of useless cunty parasites who live off of our wages. But as ever, we see the behaviour of politicians in full flow: do as I say, not as I do.

The Communities Secretary angered green campaigners by upgrading to a gas-guzzling £70,000 Jag from the £20,000 hybrid Toyota Prius used by his Labour predecessor John Hutton.

Official figures show his department blew £277,690 of taxpayers’ cash on chauffeur-driven limos in 10 months.

That is the second highest total in Whitehall, with only Lib Dem Vince Cable’s vast Department for ­Business spending more.

The figures come after it was revealed that Mr Pickles has overseen a £150,000 spending spree by civil servants.

Officials used Visa cards funded by the taxpayer to buy everything from luxury hotel stays and meals to wine and sandwiches.

The sum will embarrass the Cabinet ­heavyweight, who regularly accuses town halls of wasting public money.

Yes, folks, those cost-cutting Tories are not cutting costs that affect the people ordering the cuts. And you just know that if Labour were in charge and having to cut, les grande fromages at the top would be equally immune to any kind of suffering.

We're all in this together. Just some of us are more than others.

Fucking cunts.

You're dead posh with all that French, like.

There was an article in a Sunday supplement about Vince Cable. His wife talked about how hard working he is and the long hours he does...they hardly get to see one another. Sob.

You really got the picture that they think they're a breed apart. Far above us ordinary mortals.

They run the country, doncha know!

Pickles brightens up an otherwise drab political landscape. Getting rid of the Pious left by Labour is great - it must annoy the mad Huhne/Hoon, which is amusing.

Pilgrims out!

He must be on the road quite a bit...

Anyone who fucks off a Prius in favour of a Jag is fine by my book.

I note with interest that that cunt red rag mirror (only for sale to people on benefits) did not tell us what was going on before Eric Porkles until the last fucking moment:
Labour spent £488,000 on limos during its last year in power.

Get your fucking act together you commie Informix clown. You've been away from blogging for too long.

You are half right, there are areas that EP hasn't got to yet. But this isn't one of them.

OT. Did anything in particular prompt your earlier Twitter ranting about Johann Hari, or was it just his usual self-righteous priggery?

"Labour spent £488,000 on limos during its last year in power."

I take that to mean that the whole of the Labour government spent £488,000 on limos, positively austere when compared to £277,000 for one fucking department, in less than one year.

Vladimir, he was caught plagiarising interview comments.

Vladimir said...

Ah, I see, it's a rightwing conspiracy to discredit the authentic voice of the oppressed masses :).

Vladimir, check this out.

Thanks for information about Hari, I hadn't made the connection. BTW I paraphrased my "rightwing conspiracy" comment from somebody on the Graun; some are convinced that people only attack Hari because they don't like his opinions and his unconventional journalistic ethics are just an excuse. They may be right about that... though long before he began plagiarising quotations, he was plagiarising standard-issue left wing opinions. If any of his thoughts had actually been original or unconventional, I might not despise him so much.
