Guy News: Staggers Continues to Promote Smears

Despite having paid substantial damages and apologising to Daniel Hannan, the New Statesman‘s website is still actively promoting James Macintyre’s smear from last August against the leader of the conservative grouping in the European Parliament, Michal Kaminski:

Macintyre better hope Kaminski isn’t feeling litigious about this accusation. The Chief Rabbi of Poland accused Macintyre of misrepresenting  his views.  Chief Rabbi Michael Schudrich cleared Kaminski of the charge of being an anti-semite, and if anyone should know, he should know. Macintyre, as this video shows, still accuses Kaminski of being “a former neo-nazi”.

UPDATE: A gruff James Macintyre couldn’t get off the phone quick enough when Guy News asked whether he stood by the accusation that Kaminski was a “former neo-nazi”. “I refer you to my original email and have nothing else to say“, whatever that means. Let’s see what his boss and New Statesman publisher Spencer Neil has to say about it…

      The fuckers want to get real. There isn’t a single politician in this country talking about the 250 million a week Afghanistan is costing, after the election its going to be a blood bath for jobs in the Public sector. Where in fucks sake is all the money going? You guessed it!! Why are economists talking about peace time budgets? Its a fucking CON. When Politicians start talking about what really has caused this crisis, then I might start listening. UK HAS OVER TAXED AND CLOSED TO BUSINESS, to prop up this Shit Storm of Murder and Blood shed, How many more of our lads have to be killed our injured, so the CIA can get their Smack from Helmand Province. Well done you fuck wits. Next time you have a War get someone to do a bit of Maths

      I would like to ban them all from England, deny them any benefits, not allow them to use the National Health Service, or be able to educate their children.

      Once we banned them from our country we would be in a much better position to once again enjoy life.

      The IMF is coming says:

      Mr Cameron said Gordon Brown’s admission of error in regulating the banks in the run up to the financial crisis was a “big moment.”

      “This is a big moment I think, because Gordon Brown told us two things: he said this all came from America and he said that his judgement was right in every regard.

      “He’s now saying those two things aren’t true, that there were big mistakes made here in Britain in the regulatory system that he designed and I’m glad that he’s finally admitted that some of this was made in Britain by him.”

      On the right tracks. nail him on this

    Surely to call someone a “former neo” Nazi is the same as calling them a Nazi, in that they have gone from being formerly new to being currently established in that state. Oooh dear, I wouldn’t like to go before Mr. Justice Eady if I’d just described a member of the European Parliament as a Nazi. Young master Macintyre is probably going to prove to be an expensive luxury for the ‘Ancient Statesman’.

      New Labour is not old Labour. Its new. See the difference. The word ‘new’ or ‘former’ makes all the difference.

      “I wouldn’t like to go before Mr. Justice Eady if I’d just described a member of the European Parliament as a Nazi.”

      Plain abuse – that ain’t actionable, not in practical terms. Although I guess saying “they are a member of the nazi party” would be going a little further.

      Mind, Eady makes it up as he goes along.

      Talking of nazis and facist judges, what the fuck si Call Me Dave going to do about his mental MP calling the rozzers in to put an end to “downfall” pisstakes on YouTube?

        And here again is the danger of Labour’s shit legislation. You think of all that deeply unpleasant repeal of double jeopardy, 42 day detention without trial, loss of right to jury trial, deportation on the say-so of some foreign judge, anti ‘hate-crime’ shit they put on the statute book. And then picture it in the hands of a crowd like that Tory MP.

        For fuck’s sake.

        Although I expect the B&P will find, coincidentally, that they’ll be whipped off the ballot papers on the say-so of a judge just prior to this election. But with no time to organise an appeal. Such is the unpredicatable timing of such decisions.

      Em, old bean, few people with an intact foreskin are as anti-anti-Semitic as I, but I can’t agree that Kaminski is a disgrace, not on this issue anyway. The fellow briefly joined one of the anti-Communist parties in the 80s, when he was a lad, but left before it became neo-Nazi later on (because it was drifting in that direction) and joined a straightforward conservative party. He’s tolerated neo-Nazi rallies, but also far-Left rallies, because there are a still a few chaps out there who believe in freedom of speech even for the bad guys and it’s a sensitive issue after decades of political repression.

      Most of the attacks on Kaminski are just leftie propaganda.

            Exactly. They don’t seem to realise that the hole is being filled with every penny they have ever earned and every penny the are ever likely to earn.

            Quite literally. We have long passed the point where all our present earnings are still not enough to support the government beast. All they’re doing now is borrowing from our future self to keep the beast fed. Soon we won’t be able to do that because nobody will lend us the money. Then they’ll be forced to go back and loot all that money we (private individuals) had put away for our own personal future. Our savings. Our pensions.

            Why? Because they will not take the ‘tough’ decision to live within their means. They will beggar the whole country to maintain, for another few years, the illsion that we can afford to sustain this vast client state of walk-well co-ordinators, five a day advisors, diversity box-tickers and such-like fuckwits and overheads.

Be in no doubt the combined effect of short time working or job sharing and then flooding the economy with QE has kept the lid on a huge rise in unemployment. If this imbecile gets into No.10 on May 7th the market is going to implode. If you think its bad now, and it is, just go down your local high street and say we are in recovery mode. You can be certain as night follows day interest rates and inflation will rise post election.

            Yes, I know what you are driving at; however having spent many years involved in dealing with systems that use feedback (As Lovelock’s Gaia theory does), I would not dismiss his idea out of hand. I find that in his books Lovelock hops about a bit with exactly what he means by Gaia. Where I find it the easiest to agree with him is when he says that we (and our actions) are part of the Gaia system. That Gaia actually has a long term ‘plan’ or ‘goal’ I find harder to accept as I don’t think ‘intentionality’ fits well in his theory.

    Tory donors have ploughed five times as much money into Leicestershire ahead of next month’s General Election compared to Labour rivals.

    Major donors have bankrolled Conservatives in the county to the tune of £150,000 over the past five years, while Labour received just £30,000.

    Conservative backers funding constituency parties in Leicestershire include the controversial Lord Ashcroft, the son of a local farmer who trained the 1982 Grand National winner and a successful City trader.

    In the key North West Leicestershire marginal, Tories received donations of £69,000 since the last General Election, while Labour have received just £7,500.

    Conservative candidate Andrew Bridgen said big funding was the only way to compete with Labour as the Conservative manifesto is pure shit.

    The British National Party has expelled a UKIP mole standing for the B&P in Thurrock after discovering that his aunt was the UKIP candidate and that he had been sent into the party to discredit it, Thurrock organiser Emma Colgate has announced.

    “Mark Onions appeared out of the blue a short while ago and became very active,” Ms Colgate said.

    “We never dreamed for a minute that his aunt was the UKIP candidate standing against us, and he gained our confidence enough to volunteer to be our candidate in the local ward against his aunt.

    “When we discovered the link, our suspicions were alerted that something was amiss.

    “Further research showed that he had posed for prank pictures in pubs and had written things on the Internet which could be used against the B&P, and Mr Onions was formally expelled from the party on Tuesday 13 April,” she continued.

    “Unfortunately we discovered the deception too late to get his name off the ballot paper, but the public should be aware that Mr Onions is not a member of the B&P and has no official backing,” Ms Colgate concluded.

    Gordon Brown is set to humiliate the Tory twerp-in-chief,David Cameron, over the National Insurance fiasco in the televised debates

    EXCLUSIVE…….EXCLUSIVE………EXCLUSIVE

    Tory claims that Labour’s impending 1% rise in National Insurance would remove 57,000 jobs from the economy have been challenged by earlier research undertaken by George Osborne’s own economic adviser, according to the Financial Times.

    The FT cites a 2007 paper by three economists, including Osborne confidant Rupert Harrison, in The Economic Journal which deals with the effects of taxes on unemployment. Applying the methodology to National Insurance results in 27,000 lost jobs, the FT claims, far fewer that current Tory estimates.

    On Tuesday the Tory party unveiled its manifesto in which it detailed a plan to increase the thresholds on National Insurance. The party claimed the measures would soften the worst effects of the rise, due next year. However, employers would still face some uplift in contributions for their workers.

    If David Cameron’s Conservatives keep on pursuing this line they are bigger idiots than I had first thought.

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
