Peston BBC Blithering Budget Special

The Reithian qualities of Robert Peston have been much remarked upon here. Yesterday evening he gave us the benefit of his contacts and insight into the budget. As you can see above over a two hour period last night on the Twitter he invited us to call him a “blithering idiot”. Peston, you are a  blithering idiot.

We, along with many people in the City and business, just wish he’d shut up. Today is a good day to try CNBC’s coverage or Jeff Randall on Sky…

    Peston should be arrested to discover the source of these national security leaks.

            jgm2 its about time you got yourself a new joke writer, Mel Gibson, deep fried Mars Bars, Iron ( sic) bru , etc all so last year. By the way did you see the story in the papers a few weeks ago about the Tory councilor from some village in middle ingland who was caught behind the wheel pissed up on “Special brew” , what a headfuck for people like you.

          • Eric Joyce says:

            So much worse than getting pissed up and assaulting another MP eh?

            Feb 2012 total tax receipts £43.3bn
            Feb 2010 total tax receipts £43.5bn

            Fear not, English spastics, the only thing up in this “Recovery” is money printing and inflation. WE’ve never had it so good!

            Of course, mr anon, whoever you are, I’m not quite like jgm2 in many ways, but have some things in common when it comes to experience and views on Scotland. you might therefore place us in the same box in your mind. Marked Inglish Git.

            I am far from surprised to see English people drunk. This is because I see them as “people”, and don’t see some magic line or magic water feature that makes some “people” entirely different from others. But on the other hand, that guy was a bloody southerner.

            Mr Sockpuppet & Mr joyce, the whole point is trying to show bigots like jgm2 and his merry band that those faults he finds in others with his stereotyping can also be found in his own camp, but it kinda looses its subtlety when you have to explain it in capital letters

          • Tristram Smallbore-ffipps says:

            @ Anonymous

            So you equate an obscure Tory councilor getting done for drink driving with a member of the House of Parliament assaulting another MP, and getting caught out having an affair with a vulnerable lass who was supposed to be under his care and protection?

            You’re fucking sick.

          You miss the point. Peston parrots whatever he is told to, he has zero critical ability to analyse whether what he is told is a crock of shite or not, but blathers it anyway. The man is a cretin.

      • 173
        Tristram Smallbore-ffipps says:

        Not strictly true. The only witness reported a gunman with a facial tattoo – a mark of French neo-nazis. As I have previously mentioned the greatest argument against this identification was that if the French neo nazis are like the British ones the gunmana would have accidentally shot himself in the eye.

          That article in french is quite interesting. More detail than you get from UK plod. Apparently the current suspect – ie the bloke throwing hand guns out the window and ranting about the middle east – the french police had never seen him on a motorbike before.

      Steady on old bean, Mason’s got a music degree and is amazingly well qualified to spout irrelevant drivel, Peston’s dad got him his job and Stiffany Flanders was started by Blinky Balls who was directed through Gordon Brown who was nurtured by Kinnock and for that, blame the Welsh.

      AC1 says:

      BIOLOGISTS EXPLAIN how organisms adapt to their physical environment, but ideologues also adapt to their social environment. The most fundamental fact about the ideas of the political left is that they do not work. Therefore we should not be surprised to find the left concentrated in institutions where ideas do not have to work in order to survive.

    • 179
      Tristram Smallbore-ffipps says:

      It happens everywhere. Bollox Balls gets the job so Yvette can keep a close eye on him. Oik Osborne gets the job because of those dodgy photos he has from the late 80s and early 90s. James Murdoch gets the job, presumably, because of his amazing business skills. No possibility of connections there.

        institutions where ideas do not have to work in order to survive – Is that why most teachers are left-leaning? Those that can do etc….

      BBC Watcher says:

      This morning the BBC got a very bloody nose.
      It has been advocating with some heat that a white right wing person was the killer of the schoolchildren and others in France; so much so that the French minister got irate with radio 4 News at 10 to tell them in no uncertain terms that they were making assumptions from ignorance, but they still persisted.
      This morning the Toady Programme stated “they had been led to believe” it was a white far right person, and the very embarrassed reporter in France stated this was his interpretation from government sources.
      The fact that they carried this message with some venom was it met with their left wing agenda. Now we know it is a moslem killer they will quickly move on to their next disinformation target.

        BBC Watcher above is correct.

The articles have vanished overnight. These days I don’t even believe the football scores if they’re on the Beeb!

            Also if you followed the French media yesterday you would have seen the report when the police said they had dismissed reports linking the killings to 3 ex-paratroopers, which was conveniently ignored by the BBC.

            If you read it, it does say that the french police had two different lists of suspects, both of which they were taking seriously yesterday.

    Now I’m not a cynic but I have learned that if you think the worst of a Tory they rarely disapppoint. So let me put a little theory out for consideration.

    Housing benefit cuts mean much of southern England is unaffordable – poor are shipped out.
    Loclalised pay is brought in for cheaper areas.

    This over-looked consultation document ( , page 30, para 9) suggests localised benefits, and as poor have been shipped out this will save even more.

    2010 back to 1834 in 1 parliament.

    The Grayling and Maria ‘Antoinette’ Miller behaving as expected. A Liberal Democrat demonstrating why here in Scotland they have achieved the almost impossible feat of getting less support than the Tories.

    P.S. Do you know how many legal challenges are curently being prepared against the WRB – I already have heard of 4 different groups preparing them on grounds ranging from Minimum Wage legislation to obligations under EU law, ho hum.
    Just because Ministers don’t like Equality and Human Righhts laws doesn’t give them the authority to ignore them.

Brown and Darling strongarm a perfectly solvent bank in Lloyds to take over a crock of shit like HBOS, defrauding Lloyds shareholders who, when asked to approve the takeover, are not told about the appalling BOE liabilities of HBOS.

        Correct. As big a financial scandal as we’ve seen in this country for a very long time. BBC and Peston at the very least active accessories before the fact. And Peston still presumably guarding the secret of who in the Cabinet Office or government leaked him the information. Who was it? Brown? (most likely), Darling? O’Donnell? Tens of billions defrauded, and no justice.

            History lesson for a sockpuppet.

            “We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.” –Adolf Hitler

            He was also pretty vehemently opposed to communism wasn’t he?

            Do you actually understand what I mean by “one dimensional”?

            And I bet you’d find the reality “today’s capitalistic economic system” rather protectionist and isolationist. Hitler hated the system too, partly because he thought it wasn’t run by Germans.

    Peston also screwed up on Radio4 this morning talking about stamp duty avoidance on UK property. According to Preston, selling shares in offshore property companies reduces the stamp duty charge from 5% to 1/2%. Probably not. If the company whose shares are sold is an foreign incorporated company that owns a UK incorporated company that owns the property, chances are there will be no stamp duty. Peston was referring to the circumstance where the property company is onshore, not offshore, but he generally makes up his financial knowledge as he goes along.

And you at the BBC would be one one of the biggest backers of his human rights. Fucking arseholes.

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:
