The Post Offices controversy is one such issue.
Business Secretary John Hutton could make himself "one of the most popular" ministers if he stops the closure of 2,500 post offices, the Tories say.
The Conservatives are hoping to put the controversial plans to a vote of MPs during a debate against the measure.
Shadow business secretary Alan Duncan said 90 Labour MPs, including seven Cabinet ministers, had campaigned against the closures.
Look, it's really simple: the Post Office cannot keep losing money at the rate at which it is doing and survive. It has been heavily hit by the growth of email and IT in general. However, it has also been badly hit by the continuous ratchet of competition laws imposed by the EU.
Tory Tim Loughton accused the Post Office of just concentrating on its own "survival".
What? What the fuck? Are you listening to yourself, Loughton, you fuckwit? Of course the Post Office is concentrating on its own survival; isn't that what you are doing too? That might be the stupidest fucking remark, about anything, that I have heard in ages.
"They have stuck two fingers up at pensioners, at local business, the community at which the Post Office forms the heart...and they have the temerity to call themselves the 'People's Post Office'.
"This whole consultation has been about blackmail and bullying - it's a form of appeasement."
What the fucking hell are you talking about, you prat? Look, the Post Office is losing millions of pounds every year; this cannot continue. So how are they supposed to survive if they don't cut costs?
Well, the government could subsidise the company, couldn't it? After all, it already has.
When the programme for post office closures was announced in 2006, ministers pointed out that the government had invested £2bn in the network since 1997 and would commit an extra £1.7bn until 2011.
There's something missing from this story: what could it be? Oh yes, I know; the thing that is missing is any mention, whatsoever, of the EU.
There is, in particular, no mention of the fact that the government had to go and beg the EU to be allowed to give that £1.7 billion to the Post Office, and the reason that they have only committed until 2011 is because that was only as long as the EU would allow. Whether the EU will extend this favour beyond 2011 is anyone's guess. But, if they do not, the Post Office is going to be in real trouble.
But both the Tories and Labour are absolutely desperate not to broadcast the fact that it is the EU that is, effectively, causing the closure of the Post Offices. In this case, it makes little difference whether you think that subsidising the Post Office is a good idea or not: what matters is that all of the Big Three are desperately trying to stop the people of this country from finding out about the EU's involvement in this mess. That is because all of the three main parties are EUphiles and they know that they are already struggling against an increasingly EUsceptic public.
The Tories know full well that they can debate these Post Office closures as much as they like but, in practice, they can do less than fuck all about them.
