Paxman Does a Jeremy *#@*

Poor old Paxo doesn’t seem to have his heart in it any more – he is 60 – and he must be thinking are his 3-late-nights-a-week really worth the million-a-year he trousers?

The C-word came out last night on Newsnight. Once could be an accident, twice a coincidence, but this is third flagship BBC program to drop the c-bomb live on air in recent weeks. Do they have some sort of a bet going on?

    “some sort of bet” ?
    No, I rekon they sit round in the canteen saying “make sure you don’t say caant”. And with their best Cleese impression “i mentioned it once but I think I got away with it”.

    When’s the next time they’ve got jeremy hunt in? You know what they’ll be thinking all the way through the interview.

    Chancellor George Osborne should consider delaying austerity cuts to support Britain’s flagging economy, according to a new report.

    In his latest forecast, the right wing political blogger,Guido Fawkes said there was a case for postponing some of the harsh spending cuts as he predicted the UK economy will grow by just 1.5% in 2011 – only marginally above its 1.4% growth last year.

    But Guido Fawkes warned interest rates may have to rise as early as the spring to hold back soaring inflation, as it forecast that Consumer Prices Index (CPI) would rise to an average of 3.8% in 2011

    The Hunts in “Hunts cuts” could have been an accident. “Hunt’s cuts” must have been deliberate. His calmness and speed of follow on suggests to me that it was deliberate.

    He was calling the government Hunts.

    It’s a game we used to play in school.

    We took it in turns to shout “Crap” as loudly as possible when the teacher was writing on the blackboard with his back to the class.

    How loud, how often, and how long we could get away with it were unanswered questions that relieved the boredom.

    I guess Paxman is playing the same game.

    Moley says:

    It is impossible to have anything to do with politicians without having the c word permanently in one’s mind; especially in the case of Miliband(s), Brown and Blair.

    Wikileaks has revealed that Brown’s Government was in active discussion with the Libyans about the release of Megrahi and actually advised the Libyans how to do it.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/wikileaks/8294120/WikiLeaks-Britain-secretly-advised-Libya-how-to-secure-release-of-Lockerbie-bomber.html

    The question that has to be asked is “Why did our politicians do it; have they benefited financially from the deal and was it a simple case of corruption?”

    We need to look much more closely at Blair and Brown’s income from “Speaking engagements.”

    Who pays to go and listen to Brown and Blair speeches?

    How much do they pay, (if anything)?

    How many attend?

    Who actually pays the fee to the speaker?

    How and where are the speaking engagements publicised?

    I think the evidence suggests that the last administration was corrupt on a huge scale and trashed the Country’s reputation for personal gain.

    Some serious investigative journalism is needed.

    Faulkner should always be introduced as the man who was promoted to high office because he was Tony Blair’s landlord or should I say Tony Blair paid him rent. There is no other reason why such an average lawyer should reach such an exalted position

    Interestingly Ted Hughes falls into the apostate Yorkshireman category for totally denying the fact that he was ostensibly raised and educated in Mexborough – near Doncaster. Mexborough is not ‘posh’ Yorkshire so traitor Hughes distanced himself from the truth that in fact his moorland idyll was a fantasy of pretention.
