Saturday Seven Up

This week kicked off with a kicking for Keynesians as the evidence mounts that Obama’s $787 billion stimulus programme has failed to hold down unemployment. Balls should take note. 

The hunting of Huhne is ongoing, the police have now got possession of the tape of Vicky Pryce alleging he asked her to pervert the course of justice over his penalty points.

Monday we revealed in full the secret Shale memo written before he died. Guido’s personal favourite story of the week concerned the starlet Lindsay Lohan’s forthright views on monetary policy.

Tuesday we went hammer and tongs after Johann Hari, the pious pontificating plagiarist. Wednesday we were the first to publish online Hari’s mea culpa and allegations that he was still lying, we also rounded-up the unravelling Hari story. Thursday saw strikes and we drew attention to one set of public workers with gold plated pensions: MPs. Friday we were the first to report the Twitter storm over Guardian contributor Kia Abdullah Laughing At the Deaths of Gap Year Kids – because they had double-barrelled names.

We finished the week with the revelation of the first time Hari got sacked for making things up. This one will run and run…

Guy News highlight of the week was ambushing Chris Huhne at his first public event, asking him if he will resign if charged. Worth watching for the amusement factor…

This week 87,186 visitors made 256,826 visits to view 394,628 pages. June saw atotal of 204,247 visitors make over 1.6 million visits which together with feed readers made for some 2.5 million page views. We’re Britain’s #1 political blog because we break the stories stories they don’t want you to read.  The top stories last week in order of popularity were:

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

    Keep up the Huhnting of Hunt.

    Any chance of a update on Laws, Wiggin (seems to have gone quiet on Wiggin), Macshanes case has gone quiet (Though am not suprised) as well.

    We know politicons are slipprey fuckers and have the intrests of the country well down on thier list.

    “Democracy is the worst from of goverment we have tried, apart from all the others”*

    Well something like that.

    Can i just request Guido that you do not go down the root of other blogs and go to regestation/log in as the only leftie blog i read and commented on has just done that and i will therefore use the market and not visit there anymore.

    anyway keep up the high standards Guido and keep giving it to all sides :-)

    Dirty Hari says:

    As Scargill paused for a brief moment, I was struck by the humble demeanour, the essential humanity of the man sitting before me, someone oft misunderstood. He looked at me, his eyes suddenly alive with energy like a lion who’s been stirred from his slumber, and said with the conviction for which he is rightly famous: “I sacrificed everything for this country because I care. I cared about what Thatcher was doing to the ordinary people. I still bear the scars I got in the 1980’s. I wear them with pride. But I’m just a normal person, like anyone else.” As he looked away again, it occurred to me that for once he was wrong. He wasn’t like anyone else. No. He was a hero, a fighter for justice. A soldier. I nodded as I thought this. As though he sensed what I was feeling, he too nodded and said: “The fight goes on”. And I know he’ll win.

    You have less ideas than Gordon did when he became leader and revealed HIS big idea was not to have any ideas.

    You have as much idea about politics as a baby holding red and blue blocks.

    You are on very borrowed time.

    You are trying to walk a tough line between appealing to the hard left unions or seeking approval from the squeezed middle.
    But you might find that this tightrope is several 100 feet high. And has been badly secured at one end. Whilst at the other end a laughing shadow chancellor is sawing at it with a bread knife.

However, Mr Darling, who was still Chancellor despite Labour having lost the election, ignored the advice and voted in favour of the European plan before the Coalition was formed.”

Darling’s EU Bailout was the final shameless act of revenge, and perhaps their first act of revenge for their 2010 defeat, less than 24 hours before returning to opposition, where they sit back and blame the “tory-led government” for the complete shambles they’ve left behind.

    J ews have contributed to the world with great breakthroughs in science, medicine and contributed enormously to the arts in literature, film, music and theatre.

    Muslims have contributed the concepts of suicide bombing, honour killings and female circumcision.

    The prosecution rests.

    Hey, at least its only a loan.

    Our local club had the Council build a stadium for them.

    It cost the taxpayer £30m, and now it has just been admitted that the rent they are able to recover from letting the stadium is not what was expected, and it is worth £500k on our balance sheet. A mere £29.5m has been written off.

    Jimmy R says:

    As with all things they claim the left twist the truth to suit their own ends as the last 13 years of Labour in power proves. When it comes to Keynesian Economics, which Brown zealously forced on us during his period in power, and Obarmy is inflicting on the US, they always point proudly to FDRs New Deal, implimented during the 1930’s Great Depression, as absolute proof of it’s undisputable success.

    What they always omit to mention in their propaganda is what actually happened. The truth is exposed by the following description of what the New Deal actually achieved, or rather didn’t.

    “We have tried spending money . . . and it does not work . . . we have just as much unemployment . . . and an enormous debt to boot.”
    And who was it who made that damning statement about the New Deal?
    Henry Morgenthau in 1939 who had been FDR’s Secretary of the US Treasury throughout the Great Depression and was in the perfect place to know full well it’s true effects.

    Sounds awfully familiar, doesn’t it, especially the bit about the massive resulting debt.

    My favourite Scotched Earth theory says:

    Ever since I heard about the failed ‘Scottish Empire’ project at Darién (and the spectacular national act of bank ruptcy which followed it), I’ve assumed that this son of the Manse held an ambition to exert revenge for the Act of Union which the English ‘forced’ upon his once-proud nation.

    The alternative explanation – that he is and was a monumentally incompetent twat – is somewhat lacking in elegance.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
