Sorry

Fox apologised for the breach, but attacked the press for going after his relatives. He stood by Werritty, despite that mysterious Walter Mitty briefing…

        Speaking of hypocricy, the EU vote is coming up on 27th October. Write to your MPs requesting that they support the motion.

        We must have an in-or-out referendum because of all the sovereignty given away so far. If Cameron supported a referendum on Lisbon, then how can he be against one on the cumulative total of sovereignty given away so far across ALL the EU treaties?

        The EU referendum lock is so ridiculous. It is like saying, “We have raided your house, stolen your TV, DVD, Laptop, all your jewellery, all your money, even in that money box that looks like a can obf beans, all your furniture, Your beds, wardrobes, your clothes, your bath, shower, toilet, even the kitchen sink. You get no say on all that at all, However do not worry or fret, because if we want to take your teaspoons next, you will get a say on that!”

        WHAT ABOUT ALL THE FUCKING SOVEREIGNTY THEY HAVE UNLAWFULLY STOLEN ALREADY???

          Forget whether Fox gained financially from the ‘relationship’, when are they going to properly investigate how much his Catamite made from whoring himself around as an ‘Advisor’?

          As for Fox’s Family – one can hardly feel sorry for his ‘Beard’ – she knew the score when she married him. I wonder what she got out of the arrangement?…

            Misterned you are spot on. Cameron is a two faced lib that no one can believe. He will try to impose his will/support for the EU lib cause.

            As for Fox what a lying turd he is, he has an absolute cheek to criticise the press he knew what he was up to. It was not a mistake but a deliberate choice- first this was a baseless accusation, then an apology. he was advised about his conduct and took no notice, tough shite. The man is a compulsive liar.

            Right to recall would give him his just reward ie order of the boot.

They are in a gentlemen’s club, when you get caught with your hand in the pocket of the state (or a friend’d), it is all quietly forgotten, you can pretend you have been honourable, and everyone else will go along with it. You then wait a few months, and you will then be given some other comfy job somewhere, probably as a pay off as you know where other MPs bodies are buried.

      We are expected to believe that this was just “mates” and there was no dodgy deals involved.

        If it were to happen – the Greek authorities are likely to suspend markets through the end of December to at least January 9 2012 if needed.

        It rather depends on the chosen default and whether the Greeks go alone or with others. Financial authorities and institutions will need time to work out their positions and cover … if available.

      Punishment isn’t always about breaches of trust, as important as they are. You clearly did not live near a riot area. Where I live in Walthamstow there were a number of shops and banks which were attacked in a clearly co-ordinated manner by serious criminals, amongst whom were the rioters and a number of silly people along for the crack, trying to commit their pettier crimes over a large area. Luckily, the police had the good sense to organise themselves and responded properly for change. They drove them out of the main shopping areas and broke them down into small groups who eventually slink off into the shadows. For several days afterwards though terrified local people went home early and were locking themselves behind their doors at three in the afternoon.

      4 years for incitement to riot is fair.

        You seem to misunderstand – it is rioters who break down into small groups to force the police to break down into small groups and confuse them. We were doing it in the Brixton riots and running them a merry dance. Good to see the tacit being used elsewhere.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”
