Comment Isn't Free

The Guardian has a history of giving platforms to people with extremist views, but it sank to a new low today by running an op-ed from the terrorist leader of Hamas in Gaza. Apparently someone who advocates the persecution of women and gays as well as calling for the eradication of Israel, is just the man to write for a liberal-left newspaper.  CiF has received a barrage of angry tweets and cancelled subscriptions, whilst The Guardian is now being described as the most bigoted paper in BritainComment isn’t free, to victims of Hamas atrocities, it can cost you an arm and a leg…

Tommy's Touch

When he gave evidence to Leveson back in May Tom Watson swore, on oath, that he had nothing to do with lefty blog Political Scrapbook. Guido was particularly interested in Tom’s denial that he had ever passed a story onto the Scrapbook team:

Watson: “I know the guy, the young guy that runs it. I have no relationship with it in terms of management or anything else.”

Jay: “Have you provided information to them for their use?”

Watson: “No.”

Guido quickly pointed out that this was nonsense. This morning Watson tweeted about a chapter that Jubilee stewarding boss Molly Prince wrote for Robin Barratt’s book Bouncers and Bodyguards, highlighting her past indiscretions:

A few minutes later Scrapbook posted quotes from the book, of which Watson clearly has a copy. Guido is sure this is nothing more than a happy coincidence…

This one came in late but it’s too good to ignore…

“some members of the government are utterly shameless in trying to use the trappings of office for their own political purposes.”

Piers Morgan Police Interview Transcripts Leaked to Newsweek

As his ratings plummet and the phone-hacking wagons circle around Piers Morgan, Guido understands that CNN’s resident star-f**ker will be the focus of a very big and very negative piece in Newsweek next week.

During a four-year investigation into the “City Slickers” share tipping scandal at the Mirror,  then editor Morgan was questioned by the police for several hours under caution.

Two of his staff ended up serving time, but Morgan was cleared in 2004, despite emptying his bank account and buying shares in Viglen, a company that his paper then tipped.

Sadly for Piers it sounds like Newsweek have got hold of the transcripts of his police interview…

Teach the Argies a Lesson

Guido is always happy to help when it comes to sticking one on the Argies. After the increasingly loony rhetoric from De Kirchner and co over recent months, Guido is most amused at the Taxpayers’ Alliance new campaign calling on the government to stop British funding of Argentina.  […]

Quote of the Day

Heather Wheeler talks to Burton Mail about her tweet…

“It was a tongue in cheek pop after the European Parliament tweet – it was purely that. I also wanted to congratulate Team GB on a brilliant result and thirdly congratulate the Commonwealth countries who also did very well. Fourth, I am also looking forwarded to establishing new trade agreements. That was it – nothing more. Let’s just enjoy the summer!”
