Gordon Reported to Standards Commissioner
Over Second Slush “Fund With No Name”

It seems Gordon was not content with just the Smith Institute as his personal play thing and slush fund. Perhaps the most damaging allegation by Peter Watt yet, has been the emergence of Gordon’s secret “fund with no name“. Watt accuses Brown of siphoning donations to the tune of fifty grand a year to his own private polling fund, the only record of which was a tatty old exercise book. How very Gordon.

As regular readers will remember, when the Charity Commission reported that The Smith Institute, despite their many failings in terms of political neutrality were not paying the salary of Gordon’s private yank pollster Bob Shrum, Guido will admit to some confusion as to how Brown had managed to wriggle his way out of this. It now appears that Shrum could well have been paid out of this second, secret “fund with no name.” Whatever this fund was being used for it was breaking the rules for personal benefits that MPs must declare. The rules state that MPs must “provide information of any financial interest or other material benefit which a Member receives which might reasonably be thought by others to influence his or her actions.” Unsurprisingly a complaint has been put in to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards:

Guido reckons there is a very strong case for an investigation into this murky secretive fund.

    Every day of every week,this monster Brown attracts bad news,bad vibes,disasters and chaos.

    There are 60 million people in the UK (soon to be 70 million) and yet we have this odious,unelected cretin in Downing St.

    The time has come for someone to get him out for all of our sake’s,whatever your political views.

    In the name of Great Britain – go now you utter b*stard.

    Leaping to Gordon’s defence (as one does), if at least some was spent on Bob Shrum this appears to give lie to the unfounded suggestion that it was all blown (as it were) Timney-like on Willing Wives, Dirty Debutantes, and Sweaty Sex.

    Hear hear,

    Brown has been allowed to get away with running his own party within a party for years, now in the bunker. But I agree there is a chance he’ll be got for this – a personal slush fund from donations, if its existence can be proven then it could be his downfall. After he stole our pensions and sold our gold it would be sad if he only got in trouble for this relatively minor thing, though perhaps funnier.

    Only thing we can say for sure – the BBC will not report this until everyone else has made it a very big issue. Even then the report will lead with “PM Gordon Brown denies all wrong-doing, appoints commission to clear his name, meanwhile Tories are still 75% white”

    Regarding Sleaze now and then, yes in the 1990s as I remember, it was basically exposure of free weekends in Paris which felled heads and ended careers. Seems like the wages of sin have risen under Labour.

    The Medium is the Message, look closely at the composition of The Sunlight Centre. Seek and you will find who set it up and why it exists. It is blatently anti-
    Labour. Brown is a shrewd operator and will have all the bases covered on this.
    However can’t help thinking of ‘ A Very British Coup.’ If one anti- Brown measure fails, try something else. Brown will really need to be strong in the next few weeks and will need to employ Mandy’s wiles to overcome the establishment’s attempt at gaining power.

    Gordon Brown is a fat son of the manse crim, who like his father is robbing the charity plate. He uses the self deluded excuse that he is a decent man, when he s not at all. He has destroyed careers and hundreds of lives with his support of foreign wars and screwed up policies at home.
    His ambition has destroyed him and now all he can do is hide behind his whore wife’s skirt drivelling on about any old shit.
    His wife is young enough to be his daughter and everyone knows she’s having an affair with a junior treasury official.
    I hope that bastard one eyed son of the manse who prays to a false god and takes orders from a roman dictator dies soon

    Disdain says:

    This is really serious – to the extent that it if turns out he was using the money just to fund his own private polling operations, that’d be good news.

    Because if it’s a secret fund, we have quite literally no idea how he used the money. And when one considers how money tends to work in politics, that’s really and truly worrying for our democracy. What support was paid for? what dissent bought off? what journalist squared?, what cover for allies provided?

    Until we have answers, how can any of us assume that the man in Number 10 isn’t our own home-grown cross between LBJ and Richard Nixon?

    We need answers. More, we need a media that realizes that our democracy – what we have left of it – is at stake. Yet my guess is it will be left to the undermedia – the Guido’s of this world – to make the running.

    I’d invite any lawyer who’s reading this, and who knows what the legal situation is, to tell us. What can we do to force the truth to light?

    Bearing in mind that Brown treats the entire UK’s tax revenue and treasury as one enormous slush fund for buying votes it would indeed be ironic if a mere 50K of undeclared donations was his downfall.

    Brown-watch says:

    Remember this was the man who bounced a cheque at university and his excuse was it had come from the “wrong chequebook”. Doubledealing and two-sets of books are the hallmarks of iffy people, and Brown is one of them.

    The curious handling of his Westminster flat, bought from Maxwell (or his estate) with advice by Geoffrey Robinson is another area that needs a bit of digging around, along with the later expenses riip-offs he perpretrated and the transfer of the flat to his wife before he became PM.

    The man is up to his neck in something – and we’re paying for it.

    So in your worldview it’s OK for the prime minister to have a personal slush fund? Are there any actions – bribes, for example – which you would find worrying?

    Yorkshire Lass – not everywhere is “monkey red rosette – get elected” your beloved Labour Party are the biggest load of criminals to gain power ever in the history of this country. They are totally dishonest and dishonourable. You must surely know at a local level how crooked local labour politicians are – think Doncaster Council etc.

    Once a socialist gets into power and tastes all the trappings that go with it, they totally succumb to changing their world view. Their only aim in power is to remain in power and they will use whatever means, lawful or unlawful to do so. This has been the case throughout the years in the Labour strongholds in Yorkshire.

    At a national level – this load are just even more in that mindset – all that matters is staying in power – the enjoy the fruits of it at our (the taxpayers) expense. This present Government are corrupt with a large and small “C”.

    http://www.thejc.com/blogpost/the-shrum-curse-watch

    2k in a plain envelope to a junior minister for merely asking a question in the chamber.

    Nobody has ever been able to tell me what the question was, or even IF any policy was changed? I mean, 2K to ask a question? What stupid fucker paid that? It’s not like MP’s even answer questions, so it will have been a waste of 2K.

    However, compare and contrast 2k for a junior minister to only ask a question…. with … 1million pounds plus to the top levels of the labour party to buy a 180 degree policy reversal on cigarette advertising within MONTHS of taking over on a whiter-than-white, anti sleaze campaign, and the media said precisely NOTHING!!!!

    Labour legalised buggery of children, they had moments of “madness” on commons, they dumped wives and married secretaries purely for political expedience and the financial sleaze is measured in the tens of millions of pounds including selling peerages, dodgy home loans and betting against our own domestic steel industry.

    The tories never ever even came close to matching labour sleaze. The tories are in the unibond league compared to labour’s premier league for sleaze.

    Disdain says:

    The more I think about this, the more worrying it is. I mean, we know that this was a man obsessed with overthrowing the elected Prime Minister. We also know that his close associates (McBride et al) thought nothing of procuring defamatory lies about opponents in Labour-supported media. What I want to know is how much of this £50,000 pa (over how long? what’s the big total?) went not just to buying people off, but actively procuring lies about his enemies.

    And would he stop at that? Bugging and/or surveillance, perhaps? Going through people’s bins? Roughing up the enemies one way or another?

    Is it tolerable in a democracy to have this sort of behaviour unpunished?

    Now, of course, we don’t know any of this. We can hope that he used the money for ‘private polling’ or perhaps just hookers (we can hope).

    But the point is this: when politicians go out of their way to secure secret funds for personal use, there should be a cast-iron assumption that they are up to no good. This looks very very ugly indeed.

    (which has probably never been presented to their auditors)

    Who are the Labour Party auditors ? They should be on the firing line now as well…

    And who says that there not other “secret funds”…being used to satisfy the personal ambitions of Brown and or others ? And we all know there are a number of “secret funders” of the Labour Party….

    There should now be a full investigation of Labour Party funds…especially since they are partially taxpayer funded…

Churchill hated De Gaulle and most of the British agents flown in by the RAF were handed over to their SS buddies by the so called French Resistance, it ain’t all ‘Allo Allo’ and as soon as Paris was liberated the French gave up on the whole idea of fighting and concentrated their efforts on making a mint on the black market. Don’t forget it was the French who stitched Germany up at the end of the W1, that caused all the rise of the Third Reich.

    this is a shocking scandal, even by the appalling standards of our so called “government”.

    it is, of course, no surprise that the bbc has completely ignored the story. however, they should be careful as there is an ever – growing body of evidence to suggest that they are not performing their duty to at least pretend to be impartial. directors of the bbc, you should be thinking about your jobs.

    gordon is clearly a very dangerous man in two regards: firstly, he is clearly a bully with a panache for smears and is ready to destroy people. secondly, his ideology is so fucked up that it is scary. he believes that collective action and the collective will should trump individual’s rights in ALL situations. whilst there is a legitimate argument for the subordination of individual liberty to the collective in some circumstances (such as murder or theft), in many situations the reverse is true. we currently have an out – and – out collectivist as our prime minister, “running” the country from the widely acknowledged “bunker” who has been shown time and again to be prepared to lie, bully, abuse, destroy his rivals and to utilize the institutions of state for his own ends – outwith democratic control.

    this man is dangerous and must be removed from power.

    security services: stop monitoring my random blogpost and start to wake up. we have an individual in power who will not leave and does not seem to respect democratic controls or the democratic process. we are fast sliding down the slippery slope to outright dictatorship. you know as well as i do that any possible crisis will be seized upon to keep this buffoon in power and that there are cells operating with a view to alter the election result. do your duty and brief the queen. reccomend a dissolution.

    labour party: stop monitoring my random blogpost and get a backbone. you are being abused by a megalomaniac. if you wish your party and its values to survive into the next decade, you must accept defeat graciously. this means forcing gordon to call an election immediately. you will lose and lose badly, but better to defend the interests of the people who you supposedly represent than to defend a man who is utterly deluded and dangerous. history will not be kind to you otherwise. allowing this dark farce to continue until june will seal all of our fates.

    police and justice: investigate this allegation and do it properly. someone like john yates perhaps? it is your duty to investigate and prosecute criminality if there has been any. you cannot turn a blind eye to something because it happens to have been done by the government. if you do not do so, you prove that you exist to serve the government and not the people. if you are, infact, a political organization, then please remember when you or your loved ones are taken by the state in the future, you let this happen.

    brown’s “vision” for britain is a vision of compulsion, regulation, restriction and the continuation of his power. he is dangerous and must be removed. remember that stalin was known as “the grey blur” in recognition of his lack of policy, lack of charisma and position at the heart of the bureaucracy. his other name was “comrade card index” in recognition of the fact that his power emanated from the people he had placed within the machine. it was not too late in 1926 for the politburo to prevent him from gaining outright power, but by 1928 it was. we live in dark times in britain and cannot wait until june to be rid of this man. if he has an excuse for the civil contingencies act, it will be used. if there is an excuse for a “national government” it will be used, if there is an excuse to delay the election it will be used. his slush fund represents a “get out of jail free” card as if it is shown to exist and to have been used to finance dirty tricks, then all connected with him can wash their hands and wake up to their senses. a clean break if you will.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
