Paddy’s Pricing Panic

Given he’s polling at less than double figures, Guido was surprised to learn that Paddick even had policies, but apparently it’s ridiculous for LBC to ask how much his pointless promises would cost. The LibDems haven’t got a hope in hell, but they could at least have picked a candidate who would bring them some attention. Come back Lembit…

UPDATE: Meanwhile Ken is in new tax/donation trouble.

    Camoron: don’t apologise on TV to these mongs. Don’t express sympathy. They’re mongs. Mongs do stupid things. That’s what mongs do. Because they’re mongs. Don’t try to relate to these creatures.

    Galloway’s campaign shows just how much Asian immigrants have changed the electoral demography of this country. That he sends a letter to those immigrants appealing for their votes by kowtowing to the Muslim lifestyle tells you all you need to know about Galloway ( doesn’t appear he wants to represent the white folk of Bradford) and how the immigrant vote skews the electoral process.

    Before any leftie troll calls me racist, let’s just say we’ll not see any recipricocity in Asian countries. Can you imagine their governments, or population for that matter, tolerating any foreign incomers having a big influence in their elections?

All this and more – in the name of He who watches over us, and for whose return we hunger.

    Shortly afterwards, Mr Galloway proceeded with his open-topped bus tour to survey his new constituency”.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured.

They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
