    will says:

    Guido, as i stated earlier

    It lost £79.6 million last year. it has taken a loss of £120 million on GMG Radio during its ownership of it. EMAP now (Top Right Group) it has a net debt of £350 million, despite having to writedown its investment of £1.1 Billion with it partner APAX. (source evening standard Business Media page 16)

    Also I Think the guardian will have to sell the Top Right Group as it has started to break it into 3 parts, so it may not make much money from its investment.

    PS Guardian running a response to your story Bryn Phillips (comments mostly about his conviction) I bet article disappears by 9pm tonight

    Oh No It Isn't! says:

    Andrew – be sensible for a moment – please!

    They Have Po-Faced Platidudinous Pundits a-plenty; they have the Brown Bullshit Corpse as public mouthpiece, they have £ieBore as their readership + the JL-shopping cliterati tendency; hell, – they even have Camertwat and his sorry crew doing their bidding! – and they are the British arm of the EUSSR PR machine!

    You’re joking little man! Cqareful with money? It’s not mine, little person – IT’S YOURS – to do with as I please.

    Now go away and do … whatever it is you do. Just keep out my way, my shops, my streets, my towns, my car parks, – and most especially my 2 and 3 Star gastro-pubs!

  15. 15
    Smell the glove says:

    Is it a coincidence, that the people who seem to know how to run this country i.e. Guardian and Labour are fuckin bankrupt. A moral here somewhere?

  16. 16

    To putvit in perspective, the Treasury makes a loss of £44 million roughly every three hours.

    Forkbender says:

    No tit and bum in the Guardian unlike the Daily Star. Murdoch long ago realised that soft porn sold papers, Dirty Des has/or had a number of porno mags ( never seen them, should you ask) The Daily Star will have joined the Sun in being taken to gents at break time they are the sort of papers folded on the inside of papers like Times, Guardian and Independent. Say Guido, when are you going to be on as a political corespondant on channel 5 and not on the Beeb, just asking.

    It's all so easy to explain - an afterthought says:

    Ah – no sooner posted than the PC cum Race Industry raises its head – like what happens with all the documentation your Local Town Hall produces, – the subtitling will ‘ave to be in 1000 different languages – and brail! with in-site interpreters.

    I think the correspondents on this blog talk about masturbation and assoiated word far more than those in the Guardian

  43. 43
    Financial Advisor says:

    Any chance of the Co-op bailing out the Guardian, like they do the Labour Party? After all, they’ve got a load of super duper new High Street branches now, thanks to the Coalition.

    Forgot to add, the circulation figures would be higher but all the aforementioned make do with one dog-eared copy they pass around in he staff room. Except the BBC of course where a truckload of the rag is delivered daily and paid for with your licence money.

    Dave is a wet! says:

    I look forward to when Guido can buy the Guardian and turn it into a populist, libertarian, right-wing tabloid.

  59. 59

    And not a single CIf comment agrees with that loony article.
    Its almost as if the Guardian WANTS to lose money.

    Does Rusbridger have a $1 bet with Polly that he could wind the whole thing up by Christmas?

  60. 60
    Nullbymouth says:

    Do not give them ideas. They will have page 3 lezza’s soon, with their boiler suit suggestively undone and one Dr Martin shoe off, while the munter runs her hand through her number 2 shaven hair cut.

  61. 61
    Polly Toyntwat says:

    We must support the workers’ paradise that is the modern socialist state. Did you know that North Korea has 150% literacy, hospitals just as good as the world class NHS and no racism or sexism? Their education system is designed to teach about how evil white capitalists are and nobody there is allowed to own property.

    Anyway, must go. It’s hard work laying by the pool in my Italian villa. Giovanni! Giovanni! – where is my gin and tonic?

    Forkbender? Smiley Culture is right up there with Blair Peach in the left wing martyred by the state forces of totalitarianism oppression.

    Better gen up quick.

  68. 68
    rocknrolla says:

    I am convinced that the majority of their readership now are just people who post there to laugh at the bedwetters, point out the illogical nature of liberal thought and generally attack Pollytwaddle. Some write supporting comments, and those who buy in paper form are perhaps real champagne socialists but most of the comments there are critical.

    Did you see the articles blaming the shootings in France on white supremacists and Sarkozy? The comments were so cutting they had to stop it but only after several hundred – most, as in 99.9% – expressed the view that the Guardian had an appalling reputation somewhere between the Daily Star and Daily Sport and that those articles had managed to lower it further.

  73. 73
    Only in the Graun says:

    I think a lot of it is simply ‘above the line trolling’.

    They start controversial topics by idiot authors (including La Toynbee) and just watch the clicks roll in.

    Their advertisers care about clicks.

  84. 84

    Last article I read was on the Bomber Command war memorial.
    Naturally the grun was not in favour morally, aesthetically or historically.

    As you say, 90% disagreed with the article.

    Why do they print such crap? Do they really think their readers, even among the weakest of bladders of the bedwetters, would agree that N.Korea is as successful and prosperous as the south?
    The readers know its garbage.
    The writer too probably.

    Maybe its just a religion for the writers. Never mind all the inconsistencies and obvious fallacies and contradictions.
    If they have faith, they have hope. For a better tomorrow.

    Or it might even be simpler than that.
    They believe because they are as simple and hopefully naive as a small child at bedtime.

    “Do you believe?” Rusbridger cried.
    “I do..I do believe!” said the Guardian readers.
    “If you believe in a big state, left of centre egalitarian society clap your hands; Clap your hands hard! Don’t let socialism die.”

    “Second sharp veer to the left, and straight on till morning.”
    That, Alan had told Polly, was the way to Cleverland.

    I saw that US politicians were applauding the efforts of Al Qaeda in killing senior Syrian leaders by suicide bomber. British Prime Minister Cameron immediately took up the call (from Afghanistan) for Assad to move himself from his own country. I thought it ironic that Cameron was visiting his troops who are in Afghanistan and killing Afghans and calling his victims terrorists.
    Oh what an tangled web they weave!

    Blowing Whistles says:

    It is heartening to note that so many more people are finally (At B last) ‘seeing through’ the zioloon front that is Ms Polly Filla.

    She like so many other place-persons across the press & media of the ‘commentary’ types [They espouse and duplicitously sell their comments & views twisting the truth upon its head – to far too many of the intellectually challenged] have been slowly found out.

    Melanie Phillips ‘appeals’ to many DM readers (There are plenty od DiM ones) but she shrouds many of her espoused views with duplicitous rhetoric and downright lies – she appeals to many on key and esepecially emotive subjects but she laces and intertwines her ‘comments’ with her twisted views and versions of events and always with a particular bent toward another land – where quite frankly she ought to go and live in. Ditto Polly.

    The days of duping the masses with illogical rubbish dressed up “as if they were facts” i.e. politicised propaganda are over.

    Compact fluorescent bulbs do cause insomnia. They give off more blue light than old-fashioned bulbs, which interferes with your melatonin cycle because your brain thinks it’s daylight. Halogen bulbs and white LEDs give off even more blue light, and have a worse effect. Old-fashioned bulbs gave off very little blue light, mimicking the light of evening, so you could sleep soundly.

    By far the most popular and widely read newspapers at the BBC are The Guardian and The Independent. ­Producers refer to them routinely for the line to take on ­running stories, and for inspiration on which items to cover. In the later stages of my career, I lost count of the number of times I asked a producer for a brief on a story, only to be handed a copy of The Guardian and told ‘it’s all in there’.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    Ahh … The two biggest ‘craven and suborned’ wee little *hits who ever managed to obtain the office of PM.

    Firstly Rus on the ‘bridge’ errer – and his maintaining of ‘innocence, sincerity, integrity …..’ – Could it be that because certain persons ‘hold’ information and documentation ‘on him’ that he is just another ‘totally controlled and suborned entrapped puppetpressman’? Nahhhh, your havin a larff governor – The truth is almost always not as strange as the ‘fictions’ that smearers use to deflect from the truth.

    As for T & G neither of the low-lifes would ever have remained in office if it had not been for both of them ‘being totally controlled’ by third parties.
    We would not have had the years of Tony if we had not had Gordon in place at the same time. Both men were controlled by their masters and by their own deceptions and personal ‘acts’. When the Bliar eventually had to go it was but a slow and painful death for the Project that ended in Broons
    humiliation. And the disreputable Labour party still cling on to the liars.

    Who’s been rewarding Tony for his cravenness to their cau$e$ and purpo$e$ and when he left – old Gordo was to have followed in the same path – save that things just didn’t quite work out that way – in somebody’s dirty plans. The pair of them have been the greatest example of how a supposed democratic government – can be totally taken over and run from at arms length. [Oh the embarrassment! and look what has followed in the camoron]

    Tony and Gordon’s controllers pushed even further beyond wanting to control say just the economy. Hey why not control every person who ‘gets’ elected to high office – better still why not actually control every person who does get elected to political office – makes life even easier.

    Entrapment is a very dodgy game. The Entrapped are as good as dead zombies – they for their own misdeeds have nowhere else to turn – they’re ‘the dead hand’ control that do the dirty deals of their controllers. The Zombies have no way out other than to do the bidding of their paymasters.

    Enough for now.

    The problem with socialism is that it is an unworkable myth – there always will be those in control – who will desperately hang on to the levers.

    And is there any difference with the greediest of profiteering Capitalists? No there is no difference – because when the PROPER and LAWFUL ‘checks & balances’ on those top capitalists result in no sanctions upon them for their transgressions – WELL WHAT DO YOU HAVE? Just the same as an elite collective of Commie power crazed nutters runing the asylum.

    I’ll have a capitalist society over a communist one any day – but a capitalist one with PROPER & LAWFUL checks and balances.

    ‘Socialism’ is one of the greatest lies that has ever been promulgated – it is a bloody lie – Might be good for bees – but when it comes to human beings – no. The nature of Human beings with a bit of knowledge is one of greed ultimately and that is the lie that socialists – do not want to face up to. It is however a lie that some very DEVIOUS others hide behind – in order to control the fools who ‘want to believe’ that socialism is some kind of cure. Who’s been pulling who’s strings?

    The not guilty verdict on The Pig Harwood – is but another nail in the coffin of The British Judicial system.

    The Judiciary – have descended to the depths – with their acting charades with this verdict. They conveniently (the Dupe – behind the jurors having been ‘decieved’ as to the facts) hide behind the excuse “But it was the jury who found him not guilty”. [Ditto – Sally Clark on the say so of Sir Prof Roy meadows – criminal trial]

    No – had the jury been ‘properly informed’ – there could only have been a guilty verdict — “Direction” — by the judge. The judge has misdirected the jury – and misdirected himself deliberately or otherwise to protect what fezzes up to be the Criminal Justice system. It’s ‘Criminal’ alright and and it is the worlds laughing stock in being the most corrupted and duplicitous of systems that is imploding upon itself faster that I could write Contempt of the judiciary, Scandalising of the judiciary – evil duplicitous bastards in wigs.

    I have often wondered what the socialist version of monopoly would play like

    The name would change perhaps stateopoly
    The game pieces ID papers, truncheon, military helmit , zil limo, alsatian ,land mine

    you would proebebly have to pay banker money to throw the dice , no doubt the fee would be the start money you were given .

    community chest , would be based around civic honour roles , or stasi visit fee for clean record .
    Chance , would be replaced by half straight to gulag with a tariff of fines for certain offences eg set up democrcay newspaper , ask questions about spending , hold a dinner on freedom of speech, half celebrate great leader .

    There would be no get out of gulag free
    utilities would require a document processing fee even if they are non existant
    Free parking would require you to have certain community chest honour or pay up .

    You cant buy houses nor hotels , but you still have give money to bank who then passes it on to shady buisness people not actually playing .

    Just for clarification 1in 10 PCS union members voted and of them 50% voted for action , so 90% think Mr Serwatka was just a bit off the mood . Tell you what why doesnt Mr Serwatka sit round a table and explain which part of helping the economy , he thinks , he has identified , by striking to create some additional cost , that could be invested in creating jobs ……
    Or for that matter Ed Militant , consider how having run up so much debt , explain how you can run public services that dont end up with huge off balance sheet surprises that are only solvable by austerity …….
    Not really the unions best effort today , why dont they go legit and become a crime syndicate specialising in extortion with menaces .

    In Formal Logic, “some” is the subalternate of “all” — which is to say that if the truth-value of the proposition “ALL people are laughing at me” is TRUE, then perforce any combination of people not comprising the whole, as in “Some people are laughing at me” is true by definition. All this by way of a fancy-schmancy explanation of “Yes, Gordon, if everybody’s laughing at you, then of course there are some people laughing at you” — at least you are not paranoid on that score.

    I think Socialist Monopoly would be simpler than that. All the pieces would be glued to the board, so you couldn’t actually play, but you would have to sit there for two hours anyway.

No one bats an eye when its half dressed crack head with a matchete . I mean for some jobs the human rights commitiee view is worthless

    That aside , on this case , I perhaps understand the verdict in this incdent in that an uncessary push to the floor , may have been consequential to the tragic death , but is somewhat different , to beating someone deliberatly with murderous intentions .
    What I do find awful , is that the Met seem to have few questions about , retiring and re hiring . Its a very trcky area , for most part you want police who , do public service by being present and keeping order and sending out that message . You also perhaps want a police service (and justice) that has no qualms about , serious violent law breakers , which means sometimes perhaps a sort of immunity for any counter claims , that enable criminals to get away .

    You havent got a police force in any regard , if the law is such that public have no respect for them .

    The verdict plus his record , has perhaps given him a public verdict as being more violent than tolerable for todays police , but I dont think I want a police force that is so frightend about interactions with violence , that arrest and custody should be similar to tea and cake each time .

    Anonymous above suggests it should be easy to assess a “staggering drunk”. With more than half the UK population I see, stumbling around with either a vacant or aggresive expression on their face it would appear to be no easy task. Much easier to avoid the obvious that many happenings result from internal family failings in keeping an eye on the weaker and easily led astray participants in their fold. Bad apples often occur in too many different barrels to suggest one can simply lay the blame directly at the feet of just one.

    Have to laugh at the photo Guido linked to above right.
    Ed Miliband and Neo Guido having a “who will blink first” moment.
    Dressed somewhat similar, it reminds me of 2 primadonna female movie stars turning up at a reception to find they have both chosen the same haute couture clothing.
    Who says Marks and Sparks have no customers left?

    Good Morning Campers,

    Unlike Ed Miliband,we in the Nasty party are riddled with bigots,and we are proud of that fact.

    Ha ! The ponced up presenter on Breakfast Telly just suggested that if you can’t afford to have children you shouldn’t have them.

  253. 253

    The footage clearly suggests that this copper was not up to the job , he was running around like a rabid pitbull off it’s lead attacking everything On that day alone he attacked 8 people !
    one of which was a TV camera man filming an arrest . He also has a very checkered past of misconduct which the Met were complicit in , which if the jury had been aware of would have secured a manslaughter conviction
    My feelings go out to the family , and i hope they nail the fucker in the civil court and bankrupt the bastard

    You can therefore think of income as a proxy for intelligence.

    I have great pleasure informing The House that, contrary to popular belief, a section of the ‘lectorate think I am NOT mad, – and therefore bad, but rather, perhaps suffering paranoid delusions. My therapist opines that I have delusions of grandeur and a deep seated guilt complex, – but as I have never ever done anything wrong and I my Dada said I was perfect that cannot be true.

    I will forward stats to back up these assertions when they have been developed by CurrCuddeeee Acadamy remedial maffs class.

    No individual actually buys the Grauniad. Guardian readers are opposed to private property with the excption of town houses in Islington and country pads in Tuscany. They read the Guaraian copy that the common room / chambers / union office / BBC canteen buys. The dictatorship of the Proletariat depends on the means of production in the hands of the authorities and that includes intellectual property like news copy.

    How very interesting! I’ve been away for 30 years but I may be able to help you with your theory a little. Before I returned to my homeland (this was back in 1982) I had some very superficial contacts from my university days with what are now known as your ‘security services’. To be honest the loves all seemed a bit bonkers to me but one or two of my fellow undergraduates did join the ‘service’. There was it seems an ongoing project to ensure that no matter what flavor of party got into power they would always be ‘owned’ by the ‘service’. It was a long term project I understand that focused on the then young MPs and rising stars of both main parties. The usual thing lots of free travel, lecture tours, help with little matters through various think tanks etc.. It seemed the Americans were also very keen on it and indeed paying most the bills from the little I heard. It also seemed that the use of journos (standard spook stuff) was very prominent to help the newbies on the way up the ladder.
    To be honest the underlying themes of your political elite to me seem to be corruption, incompetence and a growing propensity toward homosexuality. That they have managed the greatest destruction wrought on your society without recourse to open war seems pretty clear to me. But as I say I’m just a degenerate old Dago who still love your country and feel sad that you seem not to realise what has been taken from you.

    What a load of bollocks.

    Income has a very high correlation with parents wishing their children to succeed.

    Grammar schools offered those children a better chance to succeed.

    It doesn’t HAVE to be via GSs though. But the state is determined to drag all children down to the lowest common denominator.

    It takes money to get rid of the deadwood that Libor had in the uncivil service, after all the uncivil service was used as way of keeping the employment figures down wouldn’t want to give friends of Libor real jobs, they may not vote for them.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
