Guidogram Going Out Shortly…

This week Guido brings you the Byers lobbying footage Dispatches didn’t use, the vigilante “Real LibDems” release an abduction video.  Gordon’s inner psycho breaks out (again) and we crack open the cider before this Sunday’s tax hike.

If you haven’t subscribed to the Guidogram, you’ll have to wait until next week to see it…

      What underhanded nasty people the labour party are eh? Our troops are led out to die by the hundred in an illegal war yet they are denied a vote by the regime that sent them there, a regime that uses our troops like toilet paper.

      Iraqi/Afghan benefit addicts lounging in the UK get the right to vote in elections and the labour party spends our taxes making it happen yet when our own people need assistence in voting in our own election it seems that all of a sudden there is no money left to make it happen.
      The labour party scum could walk upright under the belly of a snake.

        This is a re-run of the 2005 general election too when Labour changed the voting rules re army personnel.You’d have thought the MoD penpushers would have sorted it(Minister:This is intolerable Sir Crispin get it sorted immediately ! Yes Minister. (Ten Miniutes later) Sir Crispin I’ve just had No10 on the phone …apparently the majority of troops vote Conservative so put it on the backburner again will you.Thanks.Oh and don’t minute the conversation will you)

          Why do you think we sent them out there without the necessary equipment? The more soldiers we kill, the fewer votes the Tories get. Unfortunately, the media cottoned on to our little game and it started to make us look bad. So we gave them some equipment but decided to stop them voting anyway.

        I am the master of media manipulation, and I learned all my tricks from the Iraqi information minister. It’s pointless all you Tories trying to tell the truth about the state this country is in, because people will believe whatever crap I tell them. Everybody loves and respects me, you see.

    Ah let’s all feel sorry for him, diddums, unlike those Tory voting bastards in the army. Fuck them and their whining about equipment. Fuck them, serves them right for joining up. All socialists like good old Geoff deserve every penny they get, he saved billions by not buying those Tory bastards in the army kit.

    Well done Geoff, well done Gordon.

      I believe Brooooown when he sincerely told us via his comrades at the Cbeebies that Hoooooon was just ‘Showing Off’!!!! If the troops can just hold on another 2 years or so ,pending software gremlins, the first batch of armoured vehicles will be available to replace snatch Landrovers in Affy ganny stan, so dig in deep troops and don’t forget to get a relative to vote on your behalf because Nu Lab can’t be bothered to send out your ballot papers on time.

        Sounds about right for AC1.

    Catflap says:

    Here is a copy of an email I sent a local hack who is parroting the party line concerning the Iceland Bank investment disaster.
    Lets be clear.Good frontline council workers will lose jobs to pay for the mistakes of bad backroom ones.
    Who,unfairly will keep their high paid jobs.
    Old Holborn has a great post on this subject and urges you to write and mail your local press and politicians demanding heads to roll.
    Although your council name and figures will be different to mine all the points are relevent to us all.
    Dear Sadie,
    ‘Lessons are learnt’ is now a cliché and should read ‘No one will be
    sacked’.What? The fact that ELDC is still having to sweat on trying to get
    £2.5 million back from the Icelandic government, whose people have just
    voted not to pay the money back in any great hurry.
    That is big news for a place like this but the ELDC have been allowed to
    retreat behind the line of ‘We all did it’ and ‘Best practice’ etc, sharing
    their incompetence nationally.
    Well they can’t have it both ways in my opinion.
    If the people employed by ELDC to invest Taxpayers money operate a system of
    only following central government guidelines as to where to invest , then
    WHY are they paid so much?A Public servant on £15K could do an equally good
    job of following instructions and blowing the money.
    Any Mug punter who read the financial news pullouts could have told you a
    month in advance that the Iceland bank situation was looking fragile, and
    indeed one council on the south coast as a result pulled its investments out
    of Iceland., and isn’t sweating on getting its money back like ELDC.
    So we have an Investment team at ELDC who not only have neither the wit or
    the skill to invest our money without instruction from above,but who are out
    of touch with the financial markets in which they put TAX payers
    money.Markets that they are PAID lots of money to watch.
    Sackings and reduced pay grades should be the lessons these incompetent
    fools should be learning.
    Just because this is a national/international issue should not let the
    incompetent at ELDC off the hook.
    A full enquiry along the lines of ‘Who did what?’,Who earns what?’and ‘who
    is still there?’ would ensure ‘Lessons will be learned’ I think.

    Is there a Lib Dem reading this thread?

    I want to know what they say to each other before a GE, do they gee each other up, saying, “this is going to be our year”?

    Do they delude themselves deliberately, so that their necks are brassy enough for them to think they have a say in British politics?

    Why are they in Parliament?

    Who the fuck is Nick Clegg?

    Who the fuck are any of them?

      Being a Lib Dem is a triumph of hope over experience, with the added relief of being able to say anything without ever having to actually take responsibility for making real decisions.

      Nationally, anyway. They do have some councillors, of course; probably rate about the same as all the other parties. Some good, some corrupt, some makeweights.

          Just a non-descript bunch of empty suits too scared say what they really think.Dave is just not “real” thats why people are turning away.I knew months ago Dave would never be P.M I just never wanted it to be proven right.

    Blinking flip, I have been working my arse off today. Not had a chance to peruse the web from 11 last night till now – and what do I find? Guido you l’il monkey, you have STOLEN my “‘Selling gold’ is the ultimate simples encapsulation of Broon’s cackhanded financial reign – Joe Public can’t understand high finance but giving away the nation’s wonga at a knock down price is *language* the punters understand” meme thing.

    But y’know what, the tories are so fucking shite they’ll fluff that too. The BBC will say it’s old news and Dave will go “Oh do you think so, well alright we won’t mention it again….”

      The whole thing reminds me of when the Frog national front came second in the Frog election and the socialists were obliged to hold their noses and vote for Chirac in the second round.

        Thick as thieves was rather like the 300 Spartans who fought for their beliefs and slayed the partisan trolls until he had built a wall made out of the skulls and bones of tory and labour trolls who all got a good hiding. But unlike the Spartans the great thick as thieves left this place undefeated.
        So I suppose you could say he was even greater than the Spartans who were eventually defeated.
        Our hero fought for the greater good and history will remember his heroic battle in defence of democracy that was waged upon these very pages. Check it out by typing his name in Guido’s search engine. His tale is more epic than Beowulf. He truly was Top Boy.

    “You have my word. If we win the election, we will cut all of these things.”

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
