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.

    The Liberal Democrats really need to rethink their campaign strategies for the London Mayoral race. It might even be worth not running a campaign in the future.

      George’s win gives our Ken a new complexion
      No wonder he pushed the prophet connexion
      Any guesses what Dave and Ed will do
      To prove they’re more pro-Islam than those two?

        RighteO..🔥🔥🔥 says:

        london is tolerant…unsuited for those who follow Galloway. The country is also tolerant, hence Galloway and his supporters are an oddity not mainstream, but hey ho they are our oddity … so hand’s off ‘em!

          CYNICAL OLD MAN says:

          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?

          Outside of the priviliged wealthy areas, London is a second world, soon to be third world shithole. Where I grew up, there are virtually no visible British people anymore. Tolerance is one thing, compulsory cultural suicide is entirely another.

    nellnewman says:

    ken’s ‘donation’ to labour to secure him his place as labour’s candidate for london mayor has breached HMRC tax laws.

    Pity if they prosecute and he has to pay the HMRC the same amount that he paid to labour plus a fine!!

      She ‘decanted’ petrol from a can into a jar so her daughter could fill her car?

      Why the fuck didn’t she ‘decant’ the fuel directly into her daughter’s car? What fucking use is a “jar of petrol”? And why do it next to a fucking lit hob?

      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.

        CYNICAL OLD MAN says:

        Even Labour have jumped on the bandwagon trying to blame the government for this silly cow managing to barbecue herself. Then again, Labour don’t do personal responsibility.

          How many times do I have to reiterate – we are NOT in the business of factual reporting – that is for dummies, – and is far too costly in time and money for our limited resources.

          No, – we proclaim the truth as handed down to us by such luminaries as Robot Pissd-On, Her High and Mightyness, Dabba Dabba DoooAbot, Mr and Mrs Bo-Locks and other excellent people at the Grouniad, – and of course our beloved Princess Poll of Tuscany. All this and more – in the name of He who watches over us, and for whose return we hunger.

    Don’t forget that in your hope that all politics become “Guidoised”

    Some of which may be very nasty

    annette curton says:

    “After talking to the media and just before he was due to get on his campaign bus for a triumphant tour around his new patch, a lone protester began to shout abuse at Mr Galloway.

    Several eggs were thrown in Mr Galloway’s direction, but none of them hit their target. Mr Galloway’s supporters stepped in to form a human shield between the MP and the egg-thrower.

    Shortly afterwards, Mr Galloway proceeded with his open-topped bus tour to survey his new constituency”.
    Never mind the attempted omelette, an open topped bus tour?, has this man no Ego [sic].

    Poor old Ed gets sidelined again says:

    Tom Badwind won’t be happy. Newsnight’s reporter just asked Galloway “What’s wrong with David Miliband’s Labour Party? Sorry, Ed Miliband’s Labour Party”. Galloway laughed and said “Well, by the time this goes out, it may well be David Miliband’s party”.

      Drop a Daisy cutter on the BBC says:

      Because the BBC want Red Ed gone, the BBC know that even with the Tories making mongs look like Einstein there’s no way Red Ed will ever be PM. But the BBC think David Miliband will, except he needs to be made leader first. So by beating up on Red Ed and his followers the beeb hope that Liebore will do the decent thing.

      I’ve lost count now of how many times I’ve see the BBC put up David Miliband’ on the caption when it’s Red Ed on screen.

    Even Theresa May changes her garb occasionally.

        Purple is the colour of the New World Order and it’s followers. It signifies loyalty to the cause. After his EU veto, Cameron wore a purple tie at PMQ’s to show he was still loyal to the cause.
