Fakecharities = Government Sock Puppets

A most interesting observation from ConservativeHome’s Leftwatch section.


At 0853am this morning the Today programme interviewed Katherine Rake of the Family and Parenting Institute. She used her three minute twenty second slot to attack the Tory idea that marriage should be recognised by the tax system. She avoided a question about the evidence that shows marriage is much more stable than cohabitation and continued her political talking points.

She was presented as an independent expert on family policy but who is she and what is the Family and Parenting institute?

Katherine Rake was until recently a very regular contributor to The Guardian and ran the Fawcett Society.  In a profile to mark her departure from seven years of running the Fawcett Society, she was described by The Guardian as "Feminism’s calm champion".

The Family and Parenting Institute is nearly entirely funded by the taxpayer.  In 2008/9 £9.5m of the Institute’s income of £11.8m came from the Department of Children, Schools and Families via the Parenting Fund.

Wait… I say it was an interesting observation because… err.. I made it 8 days ago.

Though, in fairness, I didn’t realise that:

5.45pm: I’m grateful to Mark Clarke in the comments for pointing out that Fiona Millar – Alastair Campbell’s partner – chairs the Family and Parenting Institute.

Epic nepotism and back-scratching.



Labour find previously undiscovered voters…

White working class ones. The ones who may not be very well educated, but just want to go to work, live their life and have whatever little fun. The ones whose lot has been worsened by Labour for nearly 13 years, thanks to unfettered immigration, a catastrophic welfare state, smoking bans, constant hectoring and sneering, and general Islingtonisation of popular politics.

Well, it’s a bit fucking late and it’s more than a bit opportunistic, as the BNP look set to win seats in the next parliament. While I have no love of the BNP, them winning representation in Parliament, having already succeeded at the local and EU level, would be just the rocket-up-the-arse needed to smash the cosy consensus that hangs millions of indigenous Brits out to dry.

The Labour awakening does appear to be coordinated, too, which makes it all the more opportunistic and all the less of a genuine epiphany. In fact, it’s nothing less than tacit acknowledgement that Labour has consciously taken their core voters for granted and treated their views and concerns with disdain for 13 years.

We have something called a John Denham.


We have Tom Harris, who mentions others in the coterie.


THIS POST from Alex Smith of LabourList has caught my attention. It quotes Michael Merrick’s assessment last week about how Labour can connect with the poorest in society.

Anyway, let’s see if dear Tom publishes my comment.


Talk about on the fucking ball. Twats.


How to feed your dog…





Personally, I think we’re best off abandoning the Dangerous Dogs Act, and introducing the Dangerous Dog Owners Act.


If you don’t go to the Christmas play, it must be cos you’re a paedo…

Well… people will draw these conclusions.


Parents who want to accompany their children to Christmas carol services and other festive activities are being officially vetted for criminal records in case they are paedophiles.

I mean, what other reason could there be to swerve watching a bunch of snotty, discordant 8 year olds squawk their way through Away in a Manger?

Another reason I’m damned glad I don’t have kids.

If I did, they’d be pushed through mandatory paedo-filters before leaving school.


Fuck this so called society.


A symptom, but not the core problem.

COI reveals new five step plan for behaviour change

A new five step process for behaviour change communications planning is at the heart of new guidance from the Central Office of Information (COI). It also recommends a practical behavioural model to be defined at the start of any new behaviour change initiative, and refined throughout the life of the campaign. These measures will help maximise the effectiveness of – and define the role for – government marketing activity on integrated behaviour change campaigns.

The document is available here:


To be honest, it’s annoying, but it’s not dynamite. The principles outlined therein – NLP, systems thinking, nudging (as the Tories know it) are all established.

What is insidious is that the government actively embraces them.

What is chilling is the purposes they deploy these techniques for and the sense they have that it is their duty to do so.

I’m quite positive the Tories will take these ideas forward aggressively, too.

So I’ll say it loud and clear:

Polish my bell-end, you state-sponsored fuck-dribbles.


Me me me, want want want…

Following a link aside the article I previously linked to, I find this quote:

Belinda Phipps, the chief executive of the NCT, said employers needed to acknowledge that some mothers going back to work after the birth of a child may need extra help.

They need to, do they, Belinda? Do you know what the term ‘business’ means, you Fakecharity chugging pillock?

“It’s time employers got a grip not just of their policies and paperwork but how to help managers support mums after what is often the most important and life-changing event of their lives.”

Oh yes, perhaps they should attend the ante-natal classes to, and share the burden of all that laundry. Fuck off.

The vast majority (88 per cent) of mothers wanted to work flexibly on their return to work. However, one in six said that their request for flexible working practices had gone nowhere.

Awwww. poor you. I wanted to work flexibly, so do you know what I did? I got a fucking job that enables me to do so. But you’re not gonna like the catch, either: Flexibility cuts both ways, which is why I did 24 hours of overtime last week, while you were reading stories and tripping over all the fluorescent plastic shite strewn around your home.


December 1st 2009: Bye bye England…

Honestly. Is there now any reason left not the move to France?

Via CF, I see that Captain Ranty has a catalogue of ways in which we’re to be bent over and buttfucked at 00:01 Tuesday morning.

A direct lift from the Capn’s post:

Item 1.
Habeas corpus ad subjiciendum. Latin for "you may hold the body subject to examination". This undeniable right protects one from the state. Whilst it is in place, no-one can lock you away without having solid lawful reasons to do so. Today, if you believe that you have been incarcerated and no evidence supports that incarceration, you can demand a Writ of Habeas Corpus from the court. The court will then examine evidence that you should be gaoled, remanded, or sectioned. You might also be interested to learn that once habeas corpus is gone you can be incarcerated for up to eight months without charge. This item will be stolen just after midnight on Monday 30th November 2009.
Item 2.
Courts de jure. Latin for "courts by jury". Today we have some 70 courts in our land geared for jury trials. On Tuesday morning your right to be judged by a jury of your peers evaporates completely. All magistrates courts are now companies with limited liability. They are, for want of a better term, places of business. Justice is not dispensed. A negotiation takes place. Crown courts will now become de facto courts. Same stage, same actors, same anticipated outcome. You will part with money, or your freedom, based on the whim or the mood, of one man or one woman. This item will be stolen just after midnight on Monday 30th November 2009.
Item 3.
Innocent until proven guilty. On Tuesday morning we start playing a whole new game whereby you, the accused, are guilty until you can prove your innocence. Our age old method under Common Law is dumped without ceremony and we revert instead to a mix of Napoleonic and Roman Law. Instead of having to convince 12 good men and true (15 in Scotland) that you are innocent, you now have to prove to one man or one woman that you are not guilty. This item will be stolen just after midnight on Monday 30th November 2009.
Item 4.
Loss of sovereignty. We are an ancient civilisation. People inhabited this land thousands of years before the Egyptians issued the tenders for pyramid building. Countless lives have been lost defending our little island. It had been a mecca for those wanting to live unfettered lives. Until now. Those immigration gates were flung wide and we invited in that Trojan horse, not filled with soldiers but with people intent on taking, taking, taking for themselves. Hundreds of thousands, millions, arrived under Labours watch, not to better themselves per se, but to help themselves to benefits we pay for. As I have previously stated on this blog, all are welcome. If they are prepared to work. The plan, masterminded by those fools in parliament, appears now to have been a deliberate act to dilute us, to weaken us, to take away inalienable rights, and give the immigrants more rights than naturalised Britons. Under the EU our sovereignty is dead and buried. No more English, no more Scots, no more Irish, no more Welsh. We are all european now.  This item will be stolen just after midnight on Monday 30th November 2009.
Item 5.
Democracy. From the Greek demokratia-power to the people. The first democratically elected parliament was De Montforts in England in 1265. We shared this method of rule with others, and it spread. Many authoritarian systems have been toppled only to have democracy established. On Tuesday morning we give away this unique method of rule for an oligarchy. Mandarins in Europe are not elected. They are selected. No previous experience is required. Which is handy if you are a (well connected) imbecile. Fat salary, fat pension, fat chance of actually having to work for a living like the proles. Arguably, because of their vastly diminished responsibilities, we have no need for a parliament, no need of the traitorous monarch, and certainly no need to pay 646 goons and their back-room staff billions every year. Brussels will rule absolutely. They will waste our money with unimagined skill. Bye bye democracy. It was nice while it lasted. This item will be stolen just after midnight on Monday 30th November 2009.
I have to stop. This is far too depressing. I had another 15 or 20 items lined up that I had researched earlier today.

A total and utter betrayal. I feel truly sick.
