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…

    But, they need to borrow more so that borrowing goes down!

    • 5

      Agreed.
      If they borrow more to invest in a bigger building and more staff, then the stimulation effect on the local Guardian economy will be sufficient to generate extra cash to allow the newly hired to buy the newspaper and also buy a sandwich from the staff canteen, so generating revenues that repay the loan and generate profits that…

      Nah..its bolloxs isn’t it?

        You forget the PFI part.

        Add in the 30,098% repayment interest and it all adds up fine.

          This PFI Interest rate is very low allowing for inflation & capital

          displacements spread over next 4 decades = 25 years

          its a cracking good deal & with my vast fiscal experience which I can write

          on the back of a undelivered letter, Cheap as Chips plus BBC are Guarantors…..

          I recommend The Mirror Group should go for this before those Nasty Tory

      You make that sound like a million pounds a month in rent.

      Something wrong with these figures Guido.

      £12M over what period?

      • 27

        Deka paid £235 million for the building. £12 million is a rental yield of only 5.1%.

          That £12m is only for half the building that Guardian occupy, Guido/Neo. They filled the other half with new tenants so they are probably seeing >10%.

          This wasn’t here when I last looked. Did you have trouble with the M0db0t? :-D

          This will ensure that UK Plc will be totally fcuked & completley bankrupt before 2015 & ensure we are for evermore in total hock to the EUSSR for the next 1000 years.

    Why doesn’t the Guardian ditch that monstrous, vanity building and just move into the BBC newsroom.

      The story you have just seen is true; however, since nobody in this deal was innocent, we used the real names. On January 1, 2013, the Guardian went into administration and was adjudged so insolvent that a winding-up order was issued. Rupert Murdoch bought up the intellectual property rights to the “Guardian” name, published a new newspaper under that name, and immediately began to put tits on Page 3, thus boosting circulation tenfold the first week. Just the facts.

      “Political philosophers are sharply divided on these questions. Many do not like the idea that people “deserve” things at all. For one thing, most people think that to deserve something, a person must have done something to deserve it. That implies that there are actions that for which certain people are responsible. Seem obvious? A lot of metaphysicians don’t think so.”

      Ayn Rand nails this bullshit thus:

      “Your code divides mankind into two castes and commands them to live by opposite rules: those who may desire anything and those who may desire nothing, the chosen and the demand, the riders and the carriers, the eaters and the eaten. What standard determines your caste? What passkey admits you to the moral elite? The passkey is lack of value.

      “Whatever the value involved, it is your lack of it that gives you a claim upon those who don’t lack it. It is your need that gives you a claim to rewards. If you are able to satisfy your need, your ability annuls your right to satisfy it. But a need you are unable to satisfy gives you first right to the lives of mankind.

      There should be a Newspaper License as well as a TV License which people have to pay for and that money can go to The Guardian and then because of the unique way it is funded the Guardian can be the best newspaper in the world ever and forever.

      Polly Toynbee could right puff pieces about how fond the British people are of ‘Aunty’ Guardian which is illustrated by all the money they pay for their Newspaper Licenses which they uniquely buy under threat of prison.

      People would be sent threatening pseudo-legalese letters if they have not got a Newspaper License, even if they don’t buy or want newspapers. Inspectors would be sent round to try to get people to sign forms saying they read a newspaper once and then they can be sent to court and fined and that money can go to the Guardian too. This all creates jobs.

      You see people, it really is not that difficult once intelligent people start to think about it.

    How to lick your pros into shape says:

    Portmanteau terms such as EUSSR. Liebour and Banksters (not to mention Bliar and Zanulabour) are best avoided as nobody any longer sees them and thinks: ” How clever. I wish I’d thought of that!” (in fact it’s a bit depressing that anybody ever did).
    A simple EU (boo! hiss!), Labour (boo! hiss!), Bankers (boo! hiss!) etc will suffice.

      Baldy says:

      Next you’ll be telling us not to call the EU-loving political cartel the LibLabCon. :)

      It’s worth calling these people/organisations by how they actually behave, to counter the constant tax-payer ripped off funded spin.

      Of course they would much rather you talk about them as they would like to be called so they can live off the credit of long-gone people, you know, the ones who worked to improve education, science and politics for the common good.

      Instead these are now all debased just for a few troughers to get richer and to fund impractical ideologues who know the words to make our impotent politicians feel important – ’50 days to save the world’ etc.

      Another example people increasingly recognise are those organisations which are given our money by the govt, to then lobby that same govt for policies they want to push onto us against our will, making up the ‘settled science’ to set people against each other – they are in every sense ‘fake charitees’.

    “Conran Signh’s aim is to better understand what the reader is doing and wanting from a story at any given time.”

    It’s probably mainly right of centre readers love, dropping in to seethe their way through a story on how great North Korea is or how taking away tax credits from middle class families might mean little Cressida would have to take fewer violin lessons.

    We actually enjoy having our blood pressure raised by lefty bullshit like that. It affords us pleasant waves of validation for our general distain of the left and its print and broadcast propaganda wings, The Naurgiad and the BBC.

    Of course, the Guardian does not do this on purpose to get more click-throughs and ad revenue. Oh no.

    Dyed in the wool lefties who actually read and agree with the articles probably number less than 50’000. No wonder The Guardian is going down the shitter the second the flow of money from productive enterprise peters out, just like every other socialist vanity project since the beginning of time.

    Re. Rubbisher’s other cripplingly expensive vanity project – does anyone know how many hours a day the Grauniad’s Berliner presses are actually in operation? Of course, they’d be able to offset their losses by taking on third party printing jobs during press downtime, if they used the same format as everyone else.

    Latimer Alder says:

    A developer in the forum presents something called

    ‘The Guardian Time Saver’.

    It seems from their circulation figures that many have already discovered that the best way to save time when reading the Grauniad is not to bother with the f…..g thing at all.

    Long may its terminal decline mirror the plummeting public belief in its sacred cow of catastrophic global warming.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
