Guardian Announce £7 million in Cuts
HQ Rent Rises to £12 Million

News reaches Media Guido that Monday’s Guardian staff meeting was pretty bleak.

Apparently now the landlord’s three year introductory offer is ending, the rent on their absurdly large folie de grandeur HQ has gone up to £12 million and a further £7 million needs to be found in savings. Meanwhile today the Guardian website has been live blogging an internal website developers meeting.

And they wonder why they are losing money…

Iran Censors Chic-Ken

The nuclear-enriching Iranian government has banned chicken from being shown on television in order to control the cravings of its impoverished people. The Iranian chief of police ranted:

They show chicken being eaten in movies while somebody might not be able to buy it…Films are now the windows of society and some people observing this class gap might say that we will take knives and take our rights from the rich.”

Reminds Guido of a certain Chic-Ken who used to appear on Iranian TV…

Bon-Phwooaarr: Female French MP in Sexism Scandal

Glamorous thirty-something French housing minister Cécile Duflot was subjected to leers and wolf-whistles from her male colleagues as she gave a speech in Paris yesterday. When sexy Cécile stood up to speak wearing a skimpy floral summer dress the men around her couldn’t contain their excitement, showering her with lecherous cat calls. Heckler-in-chief Patrick Balkany insisted that he was “only admiring her looks“, but that Duflot had probably “put on that dress so that we wouldn’t listen to what she was saying“. Ooh la la…

Telegraph Editor: Charles Moore Is a Tw*t

Sketchwriter Andrew Gimson may have lost his age discrimination case against the Telegraph after they traded him in for younger model Michael Deacon, but there was still one gem at the tribunal that brought a smile to Guido’s face. After former editor Charles Moore penned a piece for the Speccie backing Gimson, the Telegraph‘s current top dog Tony Gallagher emailed a colleague: “Gimson’s moving or fired. Moore is a tw*t“. Classy Gallagher…

Spain Says Adios to 2,000 Union Pilgrims
Government to Sack 6,000 More Nationally

The crusade against Pilgrims – taxpayer funded trade union officials – is an international struggle, last year Guido reported moves in Washington to clamp down on this waste of Uncle Sam’s money. This week the Spanish government has announced a further crack down on “Liberados Sindicales ” whom El Mundo describes as “public sector employees who in many cases do little or no work because they are authorised to spend time on trade union matters“. Sounds familiar…

So far in the capital Madrid 2,000 union parasites have been removed from the public sector, nationally the Spanish government wants to remove another 6,000 Liberados / Pilgrims who are paid for by their severely under pressure taxpayers, cutting the number by two-thirds. Spain desperately needs to cut government waste to save itself from bankruptcy… 

Meanwhile back home the Taxpayers’ Alliance has released the annual trade union rich list today, revealing that 36 union bosses earn over £100,000 a year:

Guido welcomes them into the 1%…
