LibLabCon want to stop UKIP – Do it in 2 easy steps – just listen to us plebs!

And so the old parties run by the political classes are running scared of UKIP. After UKIP wins the Euros on Sunday there will be more hand wringing and talk of “we must listen.” Of course they will not. UKIP is not going to win the Westminster elections and so there is a pretence of listening to the voters but it is a sham. Which is why UKIP may not win any or many Westminster seats but it will not go away.

LibLabCon could neutralise it at a strike with just two announcements which negate the poisonous issues of sleaze and Europe.

1. All three party leaders could announce that any MP, starting retrospectively with greedy pig Maria Miller, found guilty of fiddling expenses will lose the party whip at once and not stand at the next election. We plebs find it nauseating that if the Tories win in 2015 the thief Miller will almost certainly once again be a minister. She should be out.

2. The leaders of LibLabCon could agree that on the same day as the 2015 General Election there would be a binding referendum on the question “Do you wish that the UK stays in the EU?”  Offer voters that choice and vast swathes of Eurosceptics would leave UKIP and return to the old parties. The people could have their say and there would be little point in voting UKIP. It would have served its purpose.

And as an added bonus the old parties would not have blathered on about how they were going to listen to we plebs. They would actually have listened to us and given us what we want. What, Mr Cameron, Clegg and Miliband is do dreadful about that?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: a Totally bogus balance sheet & results statement

Today it is Haile Selassie who gets de-statued. This confuses me. Then Nigel Wray gets confused as to the value of the FTSE 100 and of Apple. I share his confusion, can you help me. I discuss Burford (BUR) and then go to town on Totally (TLY) where the balance sheet is a joke and today’s results statement needs to be rewritten and re-issued. Finally I have just filmed the first main stage presentation for MineProphets on July 18. It is almpst an hour long and, I learned a lot from it, it really is most excellent. Book your seat HERE
