    Barosso is angry at being lectured. Funny that, some of us think that the EU has been a bit slow at sorting the Greece issue out. They have another 5 minutes. Will they get on with it? Nah.. what a complete tit he is.

    I see Barroso is blaming it all on the American for their Euro crisis. Maybe they blame them for trying to copy them – forgetting to realise that the USA is just one country, not 17.

    Does this mean we should be blaming the Germans for our current problems because they invaded Poland 70 years ago?

    The Tory Press says:

    DM lifted it from the Telegraph.

    Mrs Dorries, the outspoken member for mid-Bedfordshire, employs her 27-year-old daughter Phillipa as an office manager. Her daughter’s wages are paid from the public purse.

    Philippa Dorries is also studying law at a college in London.

    According to the Independent Parliamentary Standards Agency, Miss Dorries is paid a salary up “up to £39,999” for her work in her mother’s office. The agency does not publish precise figures for staff pay.

    Nice one, Duggie.

    Jose Manuel Barroso, European Commission president, has lashed out at America and Canada. Apparently the financial crisis gripping the Eurozone is all their fault.

    It was, Barroso told the G20 summit, “unorthodox practices” that “originated in North America” that are to blame for Europe’s financial mess. Nothing to do with the Euro elite’s grand folly of monetary union, you understand.

    Barroso was Prime Minister of Portugal at a time when the country started to run up enormous debts. So much so that she has since had to be bailed out.

    The Portuguese state accumulated vast debts not simply because she was run by people like Mr Barroso. The Euro made it possible for such people to borrow on such a scale because Portugal was able to exchange IOU bonds for money from investors and banks.

    Barroso went on to tell his audience that he is not going to take any lessons on democracy. Given that the European Commission president is unelected and has zero democratic legitimacy this is, you might think, a rather odd thing to say.

    Set aside the absurdity of his comments, the European Commission President’s outburst is actually very revealing. As the grand plans of the Euro elite fall apart, they are growing delusional.

    The Eurozone crisis is an entirely man-made problem created on this side of the Atlantic. So long as people like Barroso are at the helm, things are only going to get worse.

    Douglas Carswell is the Member of Parliament for Clacton.

    “I wrongly started a campaign urging supporters to ‘stand up for the right to pee.’
    I have been tasked by my twitter cult of leftism flowers for this.
    I have now changed the slogan to ‘Sit Down to Pee’ in order not to discriminate against the sisters of feminism, small children, babies, the elderly and the mobility impaired.

    This change has had the added benefit of an SDP acronym.
    Polly Toynbee has said there several hundred boxes of ‘VOTE SDP’ stickers in one of her garages. We can have them for free!
    Fight on sisters/brothers/and hard not working families!

    …from the pages of Owen Jones.

    Baroness Ashton of Up Yours Holland and Up Yours Too EU is who Gordon Brown decided would be a good EU Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Commissioner despite having no experience except CND and bleeding hearts and artists. Gordon was accused of buying off her husband who runs YouGov polls.

    As we can see in the video, she has distinguished herself

    Spank Sinatra says:

    It’s that half wit Baroness Ashton. The head of foreigh affairs (for lack of a better description) at the EU. She represents all EU countries with regards to foreign policy. A walking shambles (allegedly) and an appointment by Brown I believe in the latter days from his bunker. It has been suggested that she is widely disliked by many, speaks no foreign language and cannot wait to get on the train home from Brussels as soon as possible. I have no idea of course if that is true. A veritable lightweight however as this clip shows only too well. Lord help us…..

    I told you all it all started in America.
    Nice of the BBC on radio 4 to defend me with a woman economist stating that we worked fast in the UK with the banks. Also thank you LSE for supporting all my moves. Pity about Quadaffi though.

    That scarf she wears is so long it reminds me of the Hollywood actress that went for a spin in an open car, and the scarf caught in the wheel and strangled her.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
