      David Camoron says:

      Ha! I’ve already thought of that! By sacking hundreds of border staff, I’ve ensure you can’t keep me out!

      And as a spiffing bonus, I can use the money we save to fund India’s moon programme. Won’t you be proud when an Indian’s walking on the moon, and you’ve paid for the trip?

      Toodle pip!

        The special effects departments in Bollywood are probably up to it now, but I am not sure about the script writers. One small step for boom-shaka-laka-laka.

          V1le Labour ruined my Country says:

          I’m avoiding more tax because I don’t want to subsidise wealthy foreigners, benefit spongers and public sector parasites.

            Ironic really in that socialism was designed to redistribute wealth, not to be personally enriched by it.


          • South of the M4 says:

            Pardon me for the observation that the objective of socialism was to re-distribute the wealth of others after having secured enrichment for yourself. Or should I have not noticed that?


          • AC1 says:

            The purpose of mugging is also to redistribute wealth.

      I say! That’s a pe*achy little item you wrote there! Top class.

      These out-of-touch socialist types have no business moaning about me, what what. Look at what I hope to achieve by 2015: a 40% increase in the nation’s debt, higher immigration than we had under Labour, higher unemployment, higher youth unemployment, fewer services and yet higher taxes, people working into their late 70s, more power to Brussels, higher petrol costs and thoroughly intrusive monitoring of all your phone calls, texts, emails and web-browsing. Plus I’m going to bury all your villages under concrete, so my developer chummies get very very rich.

      How can anyone complain about that, what what?

      (Please don’t answer that question unless you’ve paid me £250,000, cash, to listen to you.)

      Toodle pip!

    Any further news on the ICO’s reaction / complaint about releasing the redacted Motorman files Guido?
    Any new thoughts / ideas coming in from the Leveson [whitewash] inquiry?

    Who has fucked up now?

    How much have they cost us?

    And where are all those trolls who think Labour is the best thing since sliced Ed?

    Jane Birkin from Paris says:

    These days there is a commissioner for this and a commissioner for fuckin that .

    I have never heard of this Hunt who is having a pop at Guido know.

    Frankly if Guido has brought to public attention documents which show criminal activity which public servants have been sitting on that can only be right.

    On the other hand if plod has been involved and enquiries have been hampered by Guido is only right that Guido should pay taxpayer compensation for any damage caused.

    Will the meeting with the Commissioner be in public in the interests of transparency I wonder.


  8. 22

    It is abundantly clear that crimes have been committed or commissioned by the media where a normal defence of public interest does not apply.

    The government have passed control of the investigation to a quasi-legal authority to investigate what has happened, what should happen in the future regarding regulation and who, if anyone, should be prosecuted.

    This all comes soon after 1). The previous government has been totally discredited for running the country disastrously badly and 2.) politicians have been caught filling their pockets with our money.

    The current coalition have carried on running the country in a broadly similar way to the last lot.

    So three of the four estates have become immensely discredited and the judiciary is now in charge of this limited but important area of concern.

    Everyone with a mental age of 15 and above knows that judge-made law is not good. If they didn’t before last year’s revelations about super-injunctions, they do now.

    We do not know what recommendations Leveson is going to make but it is not looking good judging by a number of the decisions made so far. We also have the results of recent enquiries, which turned out to be whitewashes, to eat away at our trust of this method.

    It is against the above background that Guido has taken the decision to make the information, available only currently to a closed group, public. It is unclear whether even this move will bring justice to the victims of the illegality or bring any of the guilty parties to book. This is because all the four estates are helping to protect each other. The reason? Look up the expression the gravy train.
