        Perhaps the wet weather your end with an associated depression and malaise concerning all things “Conservative” accounts for the reduction in numbers. Here the sun shines and the golf course beckoned.
        Fortunately for Guido, the Socialist “anonymous” combine together with the UKIP promotion team have done their best to swell the numbers that could have been much worse.

    Some people were saying the story about Hunt hiding behind a tree (to avoid the press outside a Murdoch party) weren’t relevant to this weeks news as it was back in 2010 shortly after the GE. Looks like there may have been more to it after all.

        How’s that?

        A pro Murdoch politician sets out to avoid the press to meet with the Murdochs to discuss business. A short time after the meeting the Murdochs major competitor has its cash flow frozen for six years. The same politician is then given responsibility for allowing Sky to purchase all of BSkyB in an £8 Billion deal, a deal which He was set to rubber stamp had it not been for the Dowler story blowing the whole thing apart just before the T’s were crossed.

            Who (from the Who’s who of the chosen) – were the Men – who decided to give the Cableman’s job to J Hunt?

            And the key question is this were all those who voted for hunt to do the job – not themselves beholden to the dirty digger?

        The original construct shackled the broadcast media to the nebulous concept of impartiality, because of course at that time the BBC was the only broadcast media. As we all know, impartiality can easily be fudged in editing decisions, and can exist in the general mindset that dominates an institution. Now that we have more outlets and sources for the media, there really is no need to be shackled to ideas of impartiality. Let’s just open it up, and to use a word that progressives love, really diversify the medium and allow multiple points of view to flourish. That’s democracy.

    When will Leveson investigate the BBC? says:

    To some, the unpleasantness of the affair is not politicians’ varying prejudice towards the Murdochs. It is the self-interest of Murdochs’ media critics, especially the BBC. In reporting the Murdochs’ lobbying of the government, the BBC’s reporters overlook the corporation’s persistent lobbying of the same personalities to boost their own fortunes. Dozens of highly paid BBC executives regularly meet ministers and civil servants to negotiate the renewal of the licence fee, the dispersal of staff from London to the regions and even the content of programmes. Occasionally, they have even lobbied ministers and officials to limit Sky’s success.

        Drop a daisy cutter on the BBC says:

        The BBC think they are above the law. When the BBC scum were pointing their fingers at Tesco over the so called unpaid work experience workers, the BBC forgot that it itself was advertising for unpaid interns on its own website and has used unpaid workers for years.

        Same for the Guardian, but the BBC decided to get political with it and just attack so called greedy capitalists. The BBC is of course a capitalist organisation itself. Where is my share of the profits made from selling Top Gear or Dr Who around the world then BBC scum?

      A few of them have been abolished, Monika, but that is meaningless if, as is the case, their functions and staff are simply transferred into other quangos. For example, the RDAs have been abolished but their junketing role has been taken over by local councils and the private sector spivs now in charge of UKTI; staff have either been transferred or employed as ‘consultants’ on twice the rate they were earning as staff.

      BUT YOU MET OTHER EXPENSES CHEATS

      The Daily Telegraph disclosed that Mr Bercow “flipped” the designation of his second home between London and his constituency when he sold two houses in the space of a year, enabling him to avoid paying capital gains tax (CGT) on the profits from either sale.
      He denied any wrongdoing but said he would pay £6,508 plus VAT to HM Revenue & Customs to cover the tax he could have been asked to pay on the sale of one of the homes.
      The Tory MP for Buckingham also claimed almost £1,000 for the cost of hiring an accountant to fill in tax returns

      Funny thing about bullying. Apart from at school I’ve never encountered male on male bullying. I know it happens in the forces and in politics, where you are not allowed to hit the bully back, but in the many places that I have worked I have never encountered it – building sites, factories, shops and offices. There is too much chance of the little short-arse with a funny voice actually being quite handy with his fists, so it doesn’t happen.

      Unfortunately I have encountered, and being a victim of, female on male bullying in an office environment. You’re not allowed to hit the bitch back and she knows it.

          I’d have to agree there. Personal experience is that the bully tends to be just one level above the victim, and often does it as a form of self protection as they feel threatened by their underlings.

          I do recall one case though of a female manager publically having a go at a male employee two levels below her. I actually had a go at her, publically, telling her that she was being “bloody unprofessional”. I worked in a different department and she couldn’t do anything, officially, as she was in the wrong, but she obviously had a word with my female boss (aka “The Poison Dwarf”) who proceeded to make my life hell for a couple of months.

        When Legend becomes fact print the legend says:

        Regrettably the left wing biased media in particular the BBC would effectively never allow the Tory Party led by a “proper Tory” to actually win they would be constantly “attacking” him/them. If they think that the present lot are right wing and comparing them to Thatcher when we are essentially talking about a left of centre led Coalition what hope would a right winger have ? None ! If you recall in the period September 2009 – May 2010 they were constantly bombarding the viewers with the idea of a “balanced Parliament”(they knew Labour under Brown had no chance)and let the idea grow amongst the less than politcally astute sections of the electorate that THAT meant a government formed by members of all THREE parties !!! In addition in the 10 days after the election result they gave loads of airtime to people calling for Liberal-Labour Coalition and why Tory led Government would be bad for the country(nothing has chnaged much in 2 years if you monitor their current affairs/news).If they can do that to a party led by Cameron who is not even a Tory think what would happen if it was led by someone on the right of the party(whom they would equate to being almost a fascist).

        Finally of course Cameron totally ballsed up the campaign by firstly agreeing to let Clegg in on the Prime Ministerial Debates(he was nver going to be Prime Minister) and then allowing Clegg to bullshit the gullible and student vote in the first debate. It was only because Brown then self-detonated with his “Bigot Gate gaffe) but even then it was still a closely run thing and had it not been for Balls putting the boot in on the LibDem talks, Clegg wanting shot of Brown and Brown getting fed up and saying “Right ! Fuck This ! I’m off” leaving the counrty without a PM “Dave” would probably never got to be Prime Minister in the first place.

        Of course the LibDem backed Fixed Term Parliament Bill puts paid to any PM being able to call a snap election and should the Coalition fall we could possible(although slight) get a Lib/Lab led Coalition NOT a general election
