Warsi Will Regret CCHQ Kicking the CAN

It all began with another Tory using a dodgy business card. When Guido started digging into the Conservative Arab Network back in November, it soon became clear it was going to end in tears. One of their directors, a lobbyist, came to Guido’s attention when his card had the Tory logo on it, despite the group not being officially affiliated to party. Complaints were made and the Party seemed to realise something was up…

Sources within the group seemed confident that CAN would be given official status, not least because its Chairman Dr Wafik Moustafa was a close friend of Warsi who was proud that she had lived in his house. Issues around Warsi’s expense claims were well-known in the network and voiced to Guido before Christmas and again in January. CCHQ’s rejection of CAN’s affiliation in March meant there was a risk of Moustafa going rogue…

    There should be a law passed to make the words “Bliar, Milibandwagon & Balls officially offensive.

    Its a shame she was not the 42 year old arrested for money laundering in relation to phone hacking.

    I think it’s pretty much common law already – it’s certainly that way with me, because whenever I hear those names I get Tourette’s.

    This is getting silly: who are these people, what are they doing, and why are we paying them all this money?

    War criminal Blair says:

    I just heard a protester got into Leveson and shouted at Blair about the money he’s made from Iraq and called him a war criminal. After he was removed, Blair said the man’s allegations about his links to JP Morgan were “completely false”. Which can only mean they’re completely true. And Leveson being the lickspittle he is apologised to Blair for the intrusion.

    Did’nt she make a noise about postal vote fraud losing seats for the Tories? No wonder her fellow m*slims are out to get her…

    So, Moustafa would have kept quiet about Warsi’s thieving if he had been allowed at the trough?

    I see……..

    Vote UKIP.

    Shaun Layabout of BBC says:

    Did you all love my quick footedness this lunchtime on World at One?
    We had Tony Blair in the Leveson trials and had a Blair / Brown cabinet minister on and balanced this with a tame professor from the University of London.
    Shock horror that the tame professor turned out to have some FACTS.
    FACTS we do not allow on World at One as we believe in left wing conjecture, half truths, rumours, and yes, sometimes lies. Never FACTS.
    He came out with the story that in Tony’s autobiography volume 1 he never mentioned Murdoch once, while Alistair Cambell’s autobiograpyy mentions Murdoch over 200 times.
    Of course we could not allow this glimpse into reality to continue so I quickly said how fascinating and interesting, but we have run out of time and we must move on to the Baroness Uddin expenses scandal.
    Did I say Uddin? Silly me I really meant Baroness Warsi.
    BBC biased? Not with me in place.

    We’ve just promoted Warsi to clear favourite to be first to exit Cabinet.Can’t hold the price much longer on this “sure fire cert”

    This is not pleasant:

    Ghastly oicks in neo-nazi gear giving the fascist salute and bashing up fellow “football supporters”. No wonder they’re giving away tickets for Olympic football games…

    That protester who shouted at Blair at the Leveson Comedy, I mean Inquiry, better be careful he isn’t invited to attend a meeting in Harrowden Hills.

    Warsi was shagging Khan, that’s the real story…

    Hi Guido a bit of news from the dead tree press

    National Union of Journalists says without recovery plan its funds would run out by October (bankrupt left wing union)

    As a result of the tough economic climate facing the media industry, which has led to thousands of job cuts since 2008 and falling NUJ membership, the union said it no longer has the income to cover its £100,000-per-week running costs

    The NUJ, which expects to make about £5m in subscription income in the year to the end of September, had forecast year-on-year falls of about 2%. However, this year the drop in income is running at about 5% and for the year to September 2013 the NUJ is now forecasting a 10% decline.

    The NUJ is looking to cut staff costs by about £400,000, from 53% of total subscription income to 45%. Press Gazette has reported that the NUJ is looking to cut nine out of 47 staff.

    You would have a heart of stone not to piss yourself laughing at lefties running out of money !!!

    Cassandrina says:

    Leveson and company have called for an IMMEDIATE enquiry in that this demonstrator got into a secure area where the intelligence community and SIX Blair bodyguards were in place.
    Who the hell is running this country – left wing placemen and women?
    Truth and justice have obviously gone out the window as have human rights and factual accounts.

    I hope the official who had to carry out the body search has received counselling.

    Blair is a wretched, evil, Hunting, nasty, mendacious, deceitful, greedy, sociopathic, warmongering piece of shit who deserves to have his face smashed in with a spiked metal rod lined with rat poison.

    If voting could really change things, it would be illegal says:

    Haven’t you realised yet? Major, Blair, Brown, Cameron. The system has been rigged to foist one shit PM on us after another. Time for a British Spring.

  36. 36
    Raving Loon says:

    Blair is paid by JP Morgan for his phonebook/contacts. I don’t get why he would deny that.

  37. 37
    Ed Miliband says:

    What I would say is that these strikes are wrong at a time when negotiations are still ongoing but that the government has also acted in a reckless and irresponsible manner. After today’s strikes are over, I urge both sides to put aside the rhetoric and get round the negotiating table again because these strikes are wrong at a time when negotiations are still ongoing and the government has also acted in a reckless and irresponsible manner. After today’s strikes are over, I urge both sides to put aside the rhetoric and get round the negotiating table again because these strikes are wrong at a time when negotiations are still ongoing and the government has also acted in a reckless and irresponsible manner. After today’s strikes are over, I urge both sides to put aside the rhetoric and get round the negotiating table again. It beggars belief.

    Now, that’s so not fair and very post cool Britannia. If it wasn’t for me, Her Madge would have abdicated by now and named moi the Peoples Choice! I saved the Monarchy single handed. And the Pope…..

    But being a straight kinda guy, I just want world peace. 30 pieces of silver……

    Il Duce says:

    The only way to get the masses out to vote is to withdraw their “entitlements” from the Benefits Agency.

    Three failures to vote, the vote automatically withdrawn? Seems fair to me.

    I am more upset that every single breach in his security has resulted in nothing more harmful than a few choice words or harmless purple powder being thrown over him.

    I mean, if you are going to the extent of breaching his security, make it worthwhile, for fuck’s sake!

  51. 51
    misterned says:

    Now that the institutionally and inherrantly corrupt Islamic community have infiltrated labour, liberal democrats and tories, all three parties are now subject to the exact same corruption, bribery and scandal.

    She has also been the most vocal politician about the way some Pakistani Muslim men view women and their place in society.

    I have a basic belief in Karma. What goes around comes around. I am pretty certain his life will implode at some point like all of the MP’s that swallowed the lies fed by the government over the 45 minutes threat.
    I am patient and I will have a quiet smile when it happens.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
