Guy News Special: Inside the Guardian’s Tax Dodges

Something tells Guido that the campaign against Guardianista hypocrisy is getting to Polly:

Judge not, that ye be not judged.
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

Motes and beams Polly, motes and beams…

Saturday Seven Up

7upThe budget and Libya dominated the week’s newsflow. Ken Clarke almost upstaged George Osborne just by going to sleep – or did he? Guido was pleased to see that an idea pushed on this blog two years ago – to give MPs charge cards for expenses – has finally been accepted by IPSA. Riddle of the week – was why did Ed Balls deposit £7,000 in NatWest in Victoria? Second question: Is Gaddafi a More Savvy Economist than Ed Balls?
