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

        He was never a journalist and was the goto guy for Labour spin
        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

        the co-op is labour's secret manifesto machine says:

        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)

    A storm in a teacup

    In a bid to stave off the UK’s economic decline, the government are unveiling a new tax law on mints. It’s called tic-tax.

    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?

      I note from your earlier posting you’ve spotted that she’s jockeying for my pole position up Gordon’s gusset. There’s no room up here behind me, Sweaty Balls and Muguire.

        genghiz the kahn says:

        Steph probably thinks that JFK was cleaner than clean, and overlooked the inconvenient truths about the Kennedy clan, insider dealing, womanising, buying of votes….

    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.

    The c*nt.

    They are really gunning for Fraser Nelson. Lobby Pass removed, and a libel case from Charlie Whelan filed against him, who really is not a fucking great bully at all. http://tinyurl.com/ylpc9nm

    Remember folks, no matter where he lives, no matter who he sucks up to and no matter what he writes he’ll never be able to shake off his “toilets” nickname, because story behind it is true.

    […] The critical analysis of the political paralysis surrounding the fiscal situation? The report back from the Shadow Chancellor’s benchmark launch? The highlighting of the hypocrisy of a senior political journalist? […]

    Hang The Bastards says:

    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.
