Chris Bryant Replaces Richard Ingrams at the Indy

Guido has a sense that the Indy has, post-Hari, improved under the new editor Chris Blackhurst, the news values seem to have sharpened up a bit. It is somewhat questionable however that it is really as free from proprietorial interference as it claims on the masthead. Chris Bryant seems to have replaced Richard Ingrams as an Indy columnist, sadly his column isn’t quite as good as Ros Taylor’s parody of him, over which he threatened to sue the Guardian. Coincidentally Chris is a friend of Lebedev’s son Evgeny and was at a recent dinner party with the oligarch’s offspring. Evgeny “speaks regularly” to Chris Blackhurst, no doubt about the weather…

It is also said that the new editor is looking at the cost of the strip cartoon by Sally Ann Lasson. The current editor doesn’t find her as funny as the old editor Simon Kelner did, but then he is married to Sally…

Elsewhere the Telegraph is said to be contemplating hiring the Guardian’s feminist writer Tanya Gold for their political team. It would never have happened in Heffer’s day…

    Will be interesting to see what subjects he chooses mmmm let me think what hes spoke about recently ………..

    Todays glimpse of Great britain , was in way presented quite honestly , the PM was abroad , with many still thinking on the news reels of the riots , to make the comparisons to cool brittiania are not necessarily correct , for cool brittiania was about polished silver (having been given a good set of economic books) , and a confident brand of new things .Great Britain is not a weak fascilmile , it is a bit of marketing to say somthing about home and abroad , not too indulgent , a reminder perhaps and a perspective for all the events of 2012 , which some people will be happy to think on . Those expecting it to sell things as cool brittiana did, havent really thought about how people in others countries saw brittain in the riots . It perhaps helps tourism and the people who will be enjoying the tourist expereince and cultural heritage .
    A more business targetted campaign is difficult as the premium brands of cool brittania are not really as much on peoples purchase list , british food does well at christmas and we do produce some high quality foods . as much as the banks and insurance are a little publically disliked , there is still business to be done , so realiable and trustworthy from competant companies who are skilled (if we no longer can correctly do sound financial , no point really ) , so a bit of back to good realiable trade and finance on competative margins , is perhaps a welcome port in these troubled times , that shop front may need a deep refresh , longer term its up to the companies to rebuild the reputation ,to keep customers .

    The popes speech was most interesting on those that could discerne , we cannot live purely in the confines of a synthetic mind economy , but then my blogg name has been on similar lines for some time .

    Dan hannahs thought that “the whole economic concensus since ww2 has been wrong” , may have been a little too reactionary , but it at least asked the question if the essential mechanistic underpinnings of manufacturing economies had been , shorted and rigged in impercievable steps by technology , to the all to reactive set up we now see of centres of money ,that require no reciprocity to location other than better returns.

    Larry hasnt seen any sign of smoke yet , from HMS tyrant in Liverpool , seems as though they are still considering options , dont know if they have enough kevlar twill to go round .

    Fabians are Evil says:

    A simple question – if the recent consumerist boom was fueled by way of excessive borrowing, which is no longer available, then surely the market has to adjust to a more logical pattern of consumption. In other words we have to live within our means and accept a lower more affordable standard of living.

    Why then are we looking for and chasing growth? Surely the ‘market’ has to level out at the new lower affordable rates of consumption (wherever that might be) first?

    This is not a recession it is a lowering of consumption to affordable levels and so, in my opinion, throwing printed money at this market adjustment is not logical.

    Agreed. *Growth* is a red-herring. I suppose they like to talk about *growth* because the world population is forever growing and economies need to keep up with that growth to stand still.
    It all stems from the post-war years when everyone was encouraged to fuck everyone else to increase the population.
    Fuck knows why. We had plenty of people already. The third world cottoned on to this Western reproduction-drive, via the BBC, and went at it like rabbits, thus exacerbating the problem.
    Why encourage population growth? Well, there are numerous reasons for governments imploring people to procreate but I’m going to roll a cigarette and let you ponder the whole sorry mess.

He also claimed £6,400 in stamp duty and other fees on his most recent purchase, and £6,000 per year in service charges. A claim that he made for £58,493.26, almost three times the annual maximum, in 2004, was disallowed.”

    The PM spoke rather well , in the face of the lack of political ability across the pond and channel , I sometimes wonder if some leaders can even reflect on this disasters origins let alone , stabilise it , Portillos analysis was starkly simple , from personal debt to supra national debt via series of political weak links (he said mistakes but ruins ecnomic policy was hardly mistake)
    harriets framing of debt was of course referring to on balance sheet and labour borrowed to keep employment which was unsustainable , one lib dem at conference made a startling analysis , 80% of the jobs created were in the public sector , an unsustainable model .

    I dont know about the ruin being a political prophylactic , certainly would think modelling a concrete suite would do .

    The new york crash of 1929 , was a sort of mass agreement to do nothing , one man on the trade floor realised what could happen so began buying stock , encouraging others to do so , he managed a short rally , before the sell returned and the crash occured . On one level the city trying such a thing in such adrift politics is reminiscent , but even a tragic event can be managed with a future in mind . The weird thing for me is how germany cant see what it will do. i think we should do better than most if it becomes as bad as some think .

    So, Bryant’s most significant and enduring contribution to journalism was the flaunting of his gusset?
    Everybody had fun and no harm done.
    Meanwhile, if ever there was a gang of villains whose names should live forever in the annals of infamy, it’s alive and well and ponceing around Westminster; and the only question that fazes that lot is whether they could be fidding their expenses with less effort.

    Aha…..what I’ve always suspected, LIGHT IS NOT A CONSTANT! Einsteins theory is under serious threat as results from Cern show that they have boosted ‘particles’ to beyond the speed of light! In truth the famous Einstein formula of E = mc2 only needs a bit of adjustment. What’s the betting the ‘c’ needs to be replaced with a formula fluctuating between 2 poles of an octave of vibrations?

    Margaret Hodge and MP chums have questioned IPSA about their own expense rules- seems rather independent-not. Hodge would claim that 99.7 expense claims are accurate, I wonder if a proper auditor would come to the same conclusion??????

    Guido, some digging is required I smell a rat. At a time when MPs are wrecking the pensions of everyone else there could not be a better time for independent assessment of MPs pay, pension and expenses. Why should their gold plated pension be reserved with the bonus of a house being given to them paid for the taxpayer????

    As for the housing bubble: how the hell did they NOT have the sense to notice they were throwing money away. It cancels out any sort of “we know what we’re doing” shit that they make out all the time.
    I was wrong on that one by the way, I expected a slump in house prices in 2003.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
