Alan Johnson resigns shadow cabinet

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Shadow chancellor of the exchequer, Alan Johnson has resigned citing 'family reasons'
    Perhaps his wife told him he wasn't up to the job. His 'relief' is Ed Balls....... Gordon Brown reincarnate, ...........over to you Finks !:winkrazz:
     
  2. Shame as I rather like him in fact he would have been my choice as leader, but family comes first unless of course you are a serving member of HM Forces, well that's what a certain 2 ringer once told me.
     
  3. By his own admission Alan Johnson was not really up to speed with the requirements to be Shadow Chancellor.The "Family Reasons" excuse crops up regularly when politicians duck out of the limelight so until we're told something more definite we can put our own interpretation to it.His Relief Ed Ball has been saying until very recently that he disagreed with the Labour financial policy as espoused by his party leader.One of the two has changed their mind.For the sake of expediency one imagines.
     
  4. At least he displays a certain 'honour' by resigning. Gordon Brown wasn't 'up to the job' but it took a car crash of an election campaign to get rid of him. Gorbals Mick, Jaquie Smith and a few other 'honourable members' should have resigned but clung on. Mr Johnson can now pick up his postbag and whistle a happy tune.

    Shame, I actually quite liked Alan Johnson.

    Wife's a bit of a horropig though, but, cops have never scored to highly on the integrity stakes. I suppose it'll be a bit like the CO's driver getting caught shagging the CO's wife. A swift draft to the CP team at balmoral or CP of the british attache in Tibet beckons.
     
  7. Shame really, even though I am politically a Polar opposite to him, he was a working man who through his beliefs worked his way up to high office. Not like most these days, who are straight from Uni, researchers job then into a safe seat. Rather have him than these career polly's any day.

  8. Wouldn't wish that sort of marital problem on anyone.
     
  9. Al Johnson resignes eh!!

    No need to make a song and a dance about it. (See what I did there.):lick::laughing9:
     
  10. Oh, I get it, Al Johnson, Al Jolson - brilliant - where do you think them up? Alternatively, if he and his wife get together do you think either of them will rub it in? (See what I did there myself? Johnson & Johnson - like the baby lotion ....) oh this could go on forever (unless there IS a God!!!!)
     
  11. Yes there is, What do you wan't.........I AM is busy.
    Fuckin grammar is getting worse.:wave:
     
  12. A good week indeed for resignations today it was foxtrot oscar to Cameron's chief of communications Andy Coulson Rupert Murdoch's man at number 10.
     
  13. Another betrayed man back to the five finger shake. I now know why I love my dog. Or should I say loved my dog! I think another dog is on the horizon.

  15. Ed balls is the single most dislikable man in politics. And that is some achievement.
     
  16. Ed dislikable? What a consignment of ancient spherical objects.

    Well he needs to have sex and travel with most of his fiscal policy, real sodding genuis that man.
     
  18. He's a moron, it is perhaps unsurprising that he is lauded by senile armchair socialists as capable.
     
  19. Montigny...stop being unfair to morons....he's not THAT good......athough compared to the rest of the Liebour party Balls might look good.
    It's all a matter of what you are comparing him against....put him up against the current crap in the Liebour party and he seems good
