"Huw a Trot? He is far too intelligent to be a Trot."

I use Trot in the Private Eye Dave Spart sense, rather than in the complexly nuanced difference between Trotskyite, Marxist, Maoist, Stalinist, etc.

"I will be blogging on the Karminsky affair soon."

If you widen the point to include Eastern European racists, anti-semites and homophobes in general (rather than your slurs on Kaminsky), you will be sure to add to the list the extremists in the EPP and PES groupings, yes? You know the ones, the 9/11 conspiracy nuts, anti-semites, homophobes, anti-immigrant racists, yes?

I would particularly like to draw your attention to Italian parties:


This is being done by governing parties that are members of the EPP. Similarly, here's a lovely election poster of Forza Italia in the 2008 elections:


For those without Italian, it says ”Daddy and Papa? This isn’t the family we want!”

There are some very unsavoury parties in the 'mainstream' EPP and PES. Yet not a peep from David Milliband over you or the Tories associating with them. Does the Foreign Secretary think that taking on Berlusconi is too difficult, but that it's OK to insult the Poles?

Thanks KayTie. I will be blogging on the Karminsky affair soon.
Huw a Trot? He is far too intelligent to be a Trot.

Thanks MH.
Galileo is called to mind by a decision that appears to be a sad attempt to appease tabloid prejudice. If you rejoice at the demise of the Labour MPs, perhaps you would like to consider the alternatives. Mostly political nerds who have never done a real job plus a gang of lobbyists on the make.
Things can only get worse.

The former British ambassador to Poland has commented on the Kaminsky affair:


The first paragraph indicates it's a basic lesson to junior diplomats not to take at face value a quote in a magazine. A lesson I was trying to teach resident bitter old Trot Huw. One might think he'd take the lesson from a diplomat who met Kaminsky while he was visiting Blair in Downing Street.

I hope Paul that you and your colleagues are going to stop flogging a dead horse on these smears. You've sold your integrity very cheaply, it seems. An apology from you would restore some of it (no chance of David Milliband doing so, despite the damage the Foreign Secretary has done to Polish-British relationships).


"Today, Government dumped the truth in exchange for grubbing for redtop mindless approval."

Whatever we think about grotesque feeble government decisions we ned to look at the causes.

Just like any retail centre it's the buying public that dictate fashion , brand popularity , and even price.

The British public have demmanded red top, jingoistic, mindless parties and politicians.

The public have given rise to the present prospect of voting for a party that bans thinking and illegally invades foreign countries and murders it's inhabitants.
The other popular party is so well organised that it's position on the EU among many others is 'blowing in the wind'.
Nobody knows what the Tories are going to do but they look favourites to get in.

We can only blame the British voting public for being mindless enough to give the tabloids the power to make weak government decisions.

This is obviously what they want!


On David Nutt's dimissal, well said Paul.

I'm not going to shed one tear for other Labour MPs in Wales who will lose their seats next year, but I'd be sad to see you go.

Of course, I'm sure you don't intend to!
