Credit where it's due

Even Uncle Jimmy sometimes links or copies items which are interesting or amusing, though not always in the way he imagines. I have to agree with him that this picture of someone protesting in Edinburgh recently against the Pope's visit is quite splendid:

Someone on Have I Got News For You this week mentioned one of the demonstrators against student tuition fee increases in London having a placard reading "Political Slogan". I haven't been able to find a picture of that though.

At the bottom of one of Jimmy's many rants against the Labour Party (how could they sack Blair as PM?) he includes this:

Read Tim Allan’s Open Letter to Ed Miliband at The Guardian, and note the commenters, almost all from left-wingers and trades union supporters. Any more proof needed of Labour’s dire political position?

Terrible, isn't it, when a party founded by the trade union movement as the party of socialism has enough left-wingers and socialists left in it to give a bloody nose to a tired Tory who is proud of having helped Blair in his attempt to destroy it?

In view of Toe-Nibbler's endless talks with God, here's an appropriate quotation from the Old Testament for the actual Labour Party as it emerges from Blair's Tory-lite sham:

Isaiah 10:21 "A remnant will return, a remnant of Jacob will return to the Mighty God."

(The remnant is a recurring theme throughout the Hebrew and Christian Bible. The Anchor Bible Dictionary describes it as "What is left of a community after it undergoes a catastrophe.")

Yup, that would be the Labour Party post-Blair.

And here (this one definitely not a link from Jimmy's blog - he'd probably have the poor guy locked up for life if he could) is a prescient article from someone who GOT Blair way back in 1996. (Wheatcroft went on to skewer Blair's later career in Yo, Blair!)
