Millionaire Maguire in Glass House Shocker

Guido has just got off the phone with our Kev after reading his column in Public Affairs News about hacks failing to declare other work in the register of journalists’ interests. The Parliamentary Standards Commissioner recently ruled Martin Bright, Melissa Kite, Andrew Neil and Fraser Nelson should have declared their outside interests while in possession of Lobby passes.  Maguire was quick to have a go at them in his column, and Guido thought he better check Kev’s own glass house was in order.

Despite being the Daily Mirror’s political editor Magure isn’t afraid to take the Murdoch shilling – appearing on Sky News almost every day and regularly reviewing the papers at £150 a pop with a limo back to his Richmond mansion thrown in. These have all been properly noted, but before he went on the attack you would have thought he would have registered his very obvious outside interest – his column in Public Affairs News that he admitted, with a raucous cackle, having had for two years.

In true Labour style Kev says he is going to report himself after being caught out.  He better be quick to beat Guido’s complaint faxed over…

    Fly on the Wall throws himself into the flytrap with boredom says:

    I’ve been watching Brown on and off live on both BBC and Sky for the past 2 hours and have already lost the will to live although I thought I heard him arguing with the commitee that the public spending cuts outlined in black and white in the governments PBR and which each member of the commitee had in front of them was actually “not correct” and neither was the Chancellor when he said cuts were happening although I may have misheard his answer being drowned out by some of the “hacks” in the room snoring

    Likewise when they got on to electoral reform and lowering the voting age to 16 – Brown seemed to base the argument for doing this on the fact that a lot of vulnerable young people leave social care at that age and need protecting from unspecified dark forces or it may have been voices

    Mighty strange chaps, these liberals, I find. Put a comment earlier on bbc blogs – Stephanie (flat as) Flanders one to be precise.
    You see, she compared Dave Cameron to Dicky Nixon and talked about his being in denial.
    I wrote in the comments section, “You ever been in denial, Steph? Eh Steph?”
    Well, blow me down. Beeb put the comment up for a short while. Then clearly one of these ‘liberals’ decided that it should be removed.
    Point is, can’t quite see why these fellows are called liberals any more.
    In my day, liberals had an air of earnest grottiness about them, but they did let other people get a word in… occasionally.
    But the current lot, you know, Labour, BBC, Grauniad etc tend to worship at the shrine of Pol Pot, rather than smoke pot.
    Anyway, clearly Steph the Eff can dish it out, but when it comes to ‘being in denial’, there’s one filly who is clearly in denial.
    Eh, Steph?

    Nothing but Mandy’s appointed gobshite on earth these days

    Though one wonders if the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner had been told to give those other uppity journo’s a bit of a kicking from expenses weary MP’s feeling downtrodden, unloved and more than a touch spitefull

    It’s well known amongst c*nt circles that Kevin Mcguire does not have a gag reflex.

    This helps him, not only to suck the blistered, scab ridden, pox covered cocks of other socialists, but also enables him to fit their balls in his mouth as well.

    I hope zis is a SteveMcQueen/GreatEscape reference, and Anon is suggesting he should be sent to play Baseball-for-1 in solitary confinement?

    Otherwise… “Cool”?!… I mean, let’s talk facts:
    He’s grey
    He’s ugly
    He’s got an accent like fingernails being dragged across the chalkboard
    He has nothing of interest to say
    He is predictable, dull, misinformed and offensive
    And he has no taste (proof, QED, is that he LOVES HIMSELF)

    Other than that, yeah, bangin’…

    You knob! You utter knob!

    the co-op’s debit card machines ask you questions.

    they started by saying “was our store clutter free” and “would you buy a £5 top – up”

    they are now asking “do you think 16 year olds should get the vote?”

    … i have changed my shop (it is massively overpriced anyway)

    Maguire should be rightly pissed of by now. Years of arse licking and still no gong.

    Sky and the Mirror should do theirselves and us a favour and stop funding the nauseating pseudo trot twat. All he does is allienate the reader and viewer.

    Garry Glitter writing a childrens article or Jade goody at an indian wedding has more appeal.

    Maguire – Without doubt the slimiest useless tosser on the tv. This man is further up Browns arsehole than toenails.

    It amazes me how this tosser gets the platform he does

    The Lib says:

    Talking about Martin Bright and outside interests. In January he wrote a story on his Spectator blog calling for a sequal series to be made of the BBC political series, Party Animals.

    Nowhere in his blogpost does he mention that he was the primary consultant on the first series. My comments on this particular blogpost were unceremoniously deleted. Thin skins comes to mind.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
