- Allan Leighton and Adam Crozier: For taking massive bonuses while forcing through the destruction of their own industry, cutting tens of thousands of jobs, breaking pension promises, cutting wages and attacking working conditions. As a pair because, like Morcame and Wise, these clowns are at their best working together.
-Sir Digby Jones: After years of being the voice of big business as head of the CBI, he's become minister of trade under Brown and has acquired direct control over some policy along with a big say in everything else.
- Patricia Hewitt and Alan Johnson: For their sterling work in as health ministers over 2007 undermining every aspect of the NHS, cutting wages for nurses, imposing economic strictures which have forced hospitals to close and fire thousands while a massive surplus of cash builds up, promoting free-market 'solutions' such as foundation status and ISTCs which have diverted money away from care, the disintegration of mental health services under their disasterous return to 'care in the community'...
- Tony Blair: For that sickening, smug farewell tour which seemed to go on for months.

Pure genius.

Yeah, but it needed to be done, the joke just had to be made.

Ed Balls - Besides the fact that he's a member of the Fabian society, and therefore a cunt by default, this benefit stuff alone is enough reason to nominate him for BOTY.

Trevor Chinn - Chairman of the AA, has presided over one of the most notorious cases of private equity asset stripping of recent times, cutting jobs and the level of roadside cover, setting up a scab union to drive out the GMB, undermining the stability of the company for the sake of quick profits.

The board of disabled employment/training group Remploy: Standout choice for any 'self-serving selfsih bastards of the year' category, for sitting as part-timers on the Remploy board for vast sums of cash, then pushing for cuts to the level of service provided to disabled people looking for work and training rather than take pay cuts of their own or leave to spend more time on one of their other numerous directorships.

I shook his hand a couple of months ago embarrassed

we were picketing some local labour fundraising dinner and he jumped out of his taxi and was on me before i knew what was going on. also i didn't know what he looked like.

my comrades were disgusted, and rightfully so

Zach Goldsmith - for adding a green tinge to the Tories and letting them put someone under 45 on TV for the first time since William Hague.

You should add the cunts Dave Ward and Billy Hayes to that pair.

The only positive is that because of his ministerial post, he spends a lot of time in schools, and meeting children & young people. And you just know that they're pretty much all sniggering away at his stupid name.

Ed Balls. Balls. Hahahahahahaha.

And so on.

He's visited my workplace a couple of times in the last few months, but mercifully I haven't met him yet, because I don't think I'd be able to contain myself. "Your name's Balls. And you're a cock. What are the chances of that happening? Hahahahahaha. OK, I'll just clear my desk now, shall I?"

Much as losing your job would suck, it's hard to say it wouldn't be worth it. grin
