MPs to end ‘Strangers’ appellation

MPs are to end use of the term Strangers – the centuries-old House of Commons name for members of the public. The House’s modernisation committee feels it is outdated and unfriendly. MPs are expected to agree today to a recommendation that Strangers be referred to instead as ‘a member of the public’.

Guido thinks the terms ‘our bosses’ or ‘the taxpayers’ have a better ring to them. Not that I like to be addressed by or even mix with politicians and such vermin. Just a week to go, fireworks…. this time… you’ll see…

What is the ‘Big Conversation’ that Blair is having with Andrew Dismore, London’s most expensive MP? Suggestions in the comments section please…

Polidex – SCANDAL!!!

Ripefig – has a stonking £14,928.35 and it seems to rise by about 30% per day – how you ask? Well somebody bought a shed load of Virginia Bottomley and she jumped 50%. You would of thought that now Ripefig has got a real job, if you can call public affairs real, he wouldn’t have time to day-trade MPs.

Jamesw is on £5,685.15, jamesgraham £4,849.62, Guido Fawkes £4,451.71, spicer has a respectable £3,476.24. The rest of you don’t seem to have grasped the necessity to day-trade rather than invest and hold.

Recess Monkey on £878.40 emails to point out that his site gives the most referrals to here and tell me he is “getting bored with Polidex – largely because I’m so crap at it.” OK my parliamentary primate, I get the hint. Shhhsh, here’s the tip – don’t tell anyone else or there will be a scandal – David Cameron, Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party, is a buy today…. nudge, nudge, wink, wink…

And i’ve noticed that 100% of Guido Fawkes staff are men. Looks like Guido has a woman problem. Or is it an hypocrisy problem?
