Saturday Seven Up

7upGuido’s favourite story this week was about Katie Myler, Ed Miliband’s chief spokesman, committing Twitter suicide by accusing the Prime Minister of “pimping himself”, whilst Guido was on on the phone to the Labour Leader’s office asking if Ed stood by his spokesgirl’s comments she twittered an apology and withdrew her remarks.

We were faster than the papers in going through the party election returns, identifying Labour’s unpaid bills from the taxpayer and the Tory Bambi killing expenditure first – pixels beating print yet again.

This week the blog had an above average 422,866 page views from 251,700 visits by 87,979 visitors. Including feed readers Guido had some 2.5 million hits in November, with student unrest related stories being the most popular and perhaps consequently the blog seems to have more earnest, angry, left-wing flavoured reader comments section, presumably from misguided students. The top 7 stories last week in order of popularity were:

You’re either in front of Guido, or you are behind…

          WikiLeaks: Britain mocked by US over ‘special relationship’

          US officials privately mocked Britain’s ‘paranoia’ over maintaining the ‘special relationship’, cables released by WikiLeaks suggest.

          Richard LeBaron, the US deputy chief of mission, said the obsession with the alliance would “be humorous, if it were not so corrosive”.

          He also reported to Washington that it would be “tempting” to take advantage of Britain’s attitude.

          The documents show that senior Conservative policians met with members of President Barack Obama’s administration before the election to promise a “much more pro-American” regime.

          http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/wikileaks/8180709/WikiLeaks-Britain-mocked-by-US-over-special-relationship.html

          Don’t worry, it’s only our own troops being killed to keep the US laughing.

      7 years hard Labour says:

      It seems Chaytor is a bigger scumbag than everyone thought.

      The reason he pleaded guilty was that he had involved his daughter in the “landlady” scam and the police had emails that incriminated her and she would have ended up being sent down too. He also forged his mother’s signature who was incapable of signing anything. His plea of Guilt is purely self serving.

        Chaytor should not be able to exonerate his daughter simply by pleading guilty himself.

        She was probably involved in a conspiracy to defraud and almost certainly an accessory to the act. Without her complicity, the fraud may not have happened, so she should stand trial and answer for her conduct.

        Super-bright but charmless
        ‘Super bright, relatively young, Ed Balls … has performed badly as schools secretary and is accused of shirking responsibility for the failings of his department … Critics point out that since coming out from the shadows and entering the public arena, Balls has shown himself to be less than suited to the top job: his public speaking is derided as “dull”, his slightly awkward manner as “charmless”, and he has many enemies within the party, precisely because of his relationship with the PM. Party insiders accuse him of cowardice because he tells Brown what he thinks Brown wants to hear.’

          The only complaints you hear about concerning Christian religious festivals comes from the politically correct up-themselves brigade, who should be ignored as a matter of course. If people want to celebrate religious festivals (whatever the religion) then let them get on with it; if you don’t want to get involved, then don’t get involved, just shut up and leave them to it.
