Research Report

It’s always nice to know your work is appreciated, so Guido enjoyed his chat last night with a northern Labour MP whose name escapes him and whose face blends in.

“Amicably” discussing the Commons subsidy and difference in prices for the public and Members, Guido was asked what he was doing sipping a taxpayer subsidised lager in parliament:

    Sophie says:

    UK debt hits 1 trillion pounds today.

    Gordon McMental must be so proud that Dave & George are carrying on with his fiscal lunacy to the letter.

    Any Tories wish to comment on this disgrace?

    Blue Labour out – vote UKIP

      About the equivalent of my annual earnings

      You Tories are amateurs at tax & spend.

      Ahhh, tax…….

      Nigel Farage says:

      I’m really enjoying troughing the subsidised grub in Stasbourg & Brussels. Leave the EU – never, I like it too much.

          You forbore to mention, Sophie, that the Borrowing Requirement was down significantly. If the reduction in the borrowing requirement continues, then the SS Gordon’s Legacy is being turned away from the rocks of government default and the shoals of IMF. It took the Fool of Kirkcaldy 7 years to trash Major’s golden legacy, give George a bit more than 5 minutes to sort things out, will you? Oh. and please give the full story or people will think you are spinning for the UKIP. :)
          P.S. Be happy for me, I paid off the Mortgage today.

            My wife has come into a bit of money recently, we will be doing the same….


          • Titford Hat says:

            Congrats. I paid mine off in 2004. Nice feeling, isn’t it?

            Presumably your net income will now have gone up. My advice is “don’t do anything sudden”.


          • The Bottle Fed Triplet says:

            Well done GOM, it is a great feeling. I did it and all by my own efforts too, despite being bled white by the taxman.

          Farage has a ounce of credibility,as for the rest of UKIP not quite as much..

          I’ll give you credit for one thing, in terms of the future being brighter under UKIP, you are at least an optimist, it must be difficult though when so few people share your view

    So you forgot who you were talking to, and you blame that on him for being dull. yeah yeah yeah, next you’ll be singing “and my daddy says i’m fine”.

    Any ideas? A northern MP drinking lager? Sack him!

      Ed Miliband, a former adviser to Gordon Brown, look at the good that is doing to his image.

      In a sense I’m a current adviser to Gordon Brown.

      I advise that he admits he was an incompetent jackass who destroyed the UK economy and then kills himself.

      Our Denry says:

      Gordon Brown may have had advisers, but would he listen to them and act on their advice?

    Mixing it with the troughers Guido?
    The things you have to do for this blog.

    Next time you’re out, have a drink on me.

    You already have…

      Next time you’re out, have a drink on me, how do you know it was only one, after all one leads to two then three……

    Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.

    What a bloody cheek!

    When I think of all the drinks, meals and christ only knows what else these shysters are creaming out of us, it makes my blood boil

    Guido, you should have said that, as a taxpayer, you’ve subsidised your own lager!

      Grumpy Old Man says:

      But MP’s pay tax too, probably more than Guido, who as an entrepreneur will be using all the dodges going.

        Cynical-old-bag says:

        Do they really pay tax?

        They get everything paid for through expenses (i.e you and I) – even their groceries.

        We’re hardly robbing them blind – more the other way round.

        The Bottle Fed Triplet says:

        Hang on GOM, if MPs pay tax on what they are paid then where does their pay come from in the first place? They are not paying tax at all, they are merely recycling taxpayers’ money.

    The Haircut

    One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you; I’m doing community service this week.’ The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

    Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you; I’m doing community service this week.’ The cop was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door.

    Then an MP came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The MP was very happy and left the shop. The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen MPs lined up waiting for a free haircut.

    And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.
