            I thought GREECE was skint, not skint enough to pull their troops out of Afghanistan.
            Oh Sh-t we are skint also says OSBOOM. Sorry just a little joke as he spends all the money on Blowing up the world with his USA war monger mates, and yes before you ask. They are borrowing the money of the Chinese and Russians to carry on regardless, bankrupting their economy.

          If Charlotte Church got £600k compensation, I should get at least £6m with my track record. They should be able to write a book on the shagging I have done. At least they will be able to confirm that I don’t know how many times I visited Russia as I lost my passport in the sea.

    The first edition of the Sunday Sun is a resounding success for Murdoch’s News International and shifts more newsprint in one daily edition than any other tabloid or broadsheet has managed in over 4 years, over 3 million satisfied customers, a BBC spokes-person refused to comment on this other than saying that Lord Leveson was deeply disturbed about this situation, and that rumours about any ‘alleged’ medical condition of his is merely just speculation.

      BBC Auditor says:

      BBC are not interested in the Murdoch press successes – we only broadcast negative news on them as we wish to demolish them and pave the way for the success of the Guardian, Independent and the Mirror.
      You will notice that no hacking mud has stuck to the Mirror in spite of the evidence and testimonials to the contrary. We have our placemen friends in the police and other high places for this.

      To sum up, I think that a lot of people (those of us that still try live in the real world at least) had a much better and more succinct political lesson from the the guy in the background, The Artist? (Grammy awards). What was with the Billy Bunter performance?, Gosh!, Yarrew!, Crikey! Geroff?, camera man/sound engineer was pissing himself, nice to know that there is still some one left with a sense of humour at the BBC, fucking frauds.

        annette curton says:

        I disagree, it is clever and a far more profound political statement in the background than the likes of Crick in the foreground could ever come out with. (hope I don’t get modded again!).

          Dear Aunts annette and Infuriated

          I see people whom I know to be sensible commenters. They are writing perfectly good English.

          But I don’t understand a word of any of this. I see nothing interesting, significant or funny. Crick left Newsnight eons ago. I have only been away for five years. Can someone please explain the significance?

          *I know I still have my marbles as I have just counted all of them and put them all back neatly in the bag*

          • Infuriated of West Mids says:

            No significance whatsoever, as far as I can garner.

            It’s just always a pleasure to see Crick look like a tit. I am a simple man with simple pleasures.

          • Thank you so much for that.

            I have gone all my life pretending to others that I am half mad. It has been very effective. ;-)

            For a moment, I was terrified that it was really true…

    They can’t help themseves, the BBC.

    Paxman opens the new Docu-series on the British Empire with the words. ‘The Empire on which the sun never set…some say it was the empire on which the blood never dried’

    Now I’ve been around a bit but I’d never heard that expression. A bit of googling establishes that ‘some people’ is John Newsinger – ‘a British marxist history professor from Bath Spa Uni (Tech College?)

    Newsinger unsurprisingly has worked as a historical consultant for the Beeb. Of course he has been seeminlgy been supplanted in their affections by Owen Jones – I’ll keep a close watch on the credits at the end of the programme.

    Marxist sentiment at the BBC – well I never?

    Just watching the removal of the protesters outside St Paul’s. One Scottish one allowed to give a long rambling statement on BBC News, thinks it is the most significant moment in human history and the Roman Catholic church should be ashamed about removing them – they tried to explain that nothing to do with the RC church!

      Interesting isnt it , socialist baathests in syria are killing people and simpultainious holding a hardly believable elction , so called security cleared guards shoot dead to ranking officers perhaps to do with a koran burning in Afghanistan . Bin ladens house gets demolished in Pakistan , and it was less than half a km from one of biggest army bases .

      i appreciate that some may hold islam as a great faith , but isnt there at least one leading cleric who can tell them all , some kinda of mistake has occured that has caused decades of loss and opression , because they cannot sort anything out that allows then to live in peace and be enlightend …… I mean they cannot even tackle that if you fund terrorism , thats what you get instead of goverments that serve …

    not a machine says:

    I wasnt quite sure what to make of Nick Cleggs rather late letter on considering the competition aspects , the matter appears to be now settled with some final concessions , for what its worth , I was concerned at 2 aspects , one journo mentioned it would open up the NHS to EU groups , which perhaps is impossible to legislate for , although being as NHS has considerable experience the matter should not arise . The second aspect was in what was termed as “duplication “, given that labours legislation led to quite a bit of duplication , it is clear that labour see this will occure , as differing groups will need to be sorted through in the new constructs . I believe that over time we should start to see certain commisioning of care , lead to high activity of quality common practice , with a fair bit of sorting out what commisioning structures do deliver better outcomes ,in the more complex health needs , quite wether this means for some instances , certfied levels of interaction with for eg 2 nurses attending to a patient but unable to do anything else until specialist arrives , will perhaps be the new snagging for a while . There could also be a problem where private nurses doing special new treatment trials , conflict with other patterns .
    But overall for the vast majority of ordinary medical care , resourcing should provide improved outcomes , but improving the more complex healthcare scenarios is always difficult in home scenarios , again though i believe that some nurses somewhere will be doing somethings very well , and others not quite so enlightened , so hopefully in the months ahead , some transfer of better practice should appear , hopefully in a sort of organic way with a belief in developing actual care alongside .

    The Lib dems and the lords is somthing of feindish mix , clearly the system has had a bit of weakness in that we are approaching 1000 members , but somthing far worse may be possible with a fully elected lords , in that it will unltimately lead to competion of supremecy , rather than our more proven system of revising , but still being capable of protest . Elections have a habit of requring firm adherence to party lines , where as cross benchers , which have a habit of comming from appointments , can interogate the legislation in a different way and from different groups , indeed one could say that a house that upholds attitudes of revison over party loyality is as near as perfect as one could wish . Where I do have some sympathy for reform, it is in , reducing lords numbers and considering some way of appointing people , who have experience or even specialist experience , who can contribute to more subtle needs of revising legislation , that an election is simply unable to provide as the electorate will deliver the most popular . Whilst the danger of course is that certain cliques could arise that deliberately avoid proper revision eg appointed group conspires with another group , to twist an outcome , is not really considering matters in the service of the public . revising is a thoughtfull business , experienced hands on secure tenure , at least manage to evaluate and perhaps even suffer goverment failures , in a time frame outside of the seat changes that occure in elections , often producing that most eleusive of political reckonings , “wisdom”.

    There will perhaps come a day when local councils , have to go into a sort of gymnasium , I have to bite my tongue as some of the local practices i have witnessed in some boroughs , would make even a well known commons disgraced rouge , feel inept . It isnt so much that some councils do have departments that perform very obscure functions , that are useful for example ditch clearing . or that more rural ones may have differening patterns of service spending to urban ones , its when you find things like £11000 for a speed bump , when council in neighboring borugh got one for £5000 , or when a 10yr old purpose built council offices is to be demolished for a supermarket no one wants , as it has an active high street and one already in place , and the council is to spend money again on a new office block .
    I can see local council spending and how revenuse are collected , is beggining its journey from finacial squeeze , to something a little more determined in what they should and shouldnt be doing , one day it may become the only option left , but it appears we are rather busy on sorting the big mess left after labour borrow wonk fest , to have another iron in the fire . They are still advertising for none jobs in some boroughs , so will only have themselves to blame when it does come to an unpleasant end , with all its pay offs and re hireings ….

      I was listening to some of them being interviewed on TV and radio – one thought that it was the most significant event in the history of mankind!

      They all seem to ramble on with their theories about what is wrong with the world and what they are going to do to solve it. I remembered what it reminded me of, being cornered at a party or in a pub by someone who has had a few drinks. They always know the answer to the most complex problems and questions as well knowing how to solve all the world’s problems though of course are talking complete b###ocks.

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
