Rally Against Debt Today!

The Rally Against Debt will be held at Old Palace Yard in Westminster, central London, at 11 a.m. Today.

Old Palace Yard (pictured above) is in between Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament, a short distance from Victoria train station and walking distance from both Westminster and St James’s Park tube stations.

The Rally will start at 11 a.m. and finish in good time for the FA Cup final, and during that time there will be the opportunity to hear speakers explain why they are rallying against debt, and to see the TPA Debt Clock – a giant digital display counting up the country’s national debt.

If you need a reminder of the reasons behind the rally, why not take a look at our Why Rally Against Debt fact sheet, or check out the official website FAQ. And if you’re on Facebook, why not join the official event page?

Come and enjoy yourselves, while taking the opportunity to make a serious point about the importance of dealing with Britain’s horrific national debt.

Saturday Seven Up

7upGuido has spent the week “Huhnting”. Last Sunday’s papers revealed that the wily Secretary of State for Energy, Chris Huhne, had forced “someone close to him” to accept penalty points to avoid losing his driving licence. A criminal offence and a resigning issue. After much tracking down of former staffers, Guido clicked. What if it was Vicky, his estranged wife, who coughed the arrangement, that took the bullet? While she isn’t necessarily going to incriminate herself this Sunday, it will be interesting to see how far she is willing to twist the knife into her soon-to-be ex-husband’s career. The crosshairs even came out.

Super Injunctions have also been the order of the week and Guido certainly gave Adam Boulton a fright on Sky News on Monday, when he gave some very simple media advice to the rich and the famous, it was such good advice that it was repeated last night on Have I Got News for You.

Meanwhile, Neo-Guido, also known as the site’s News Editor, fresh from sparring with Polly Toynbee on Newsnight on Tuesday, stuck it to David Laws and his spinners on the BBC News Channel on Thursday night, highlighting the £99,000 “gift” that was the real reason for the harsh punishment the LibDem golden child.

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

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
