Ballot Day for Bonkers Bryn Phillips

Today is the City of London by-election in the Farringdon Within ward. Yesterday the candidates met face to face for a hustings, and needless to say, with a convicted rioter and Occupy hippy on the ballot, things got a little spicy.

Bryn Phillips, whose campaign Guido has been keeping you up to date with, couldn’t even rely on his learned friends from lefty chambers Tooks, who appeared to be trying to have reporting restrictions put on the meeting. The transparency for the City campaign has got off to a flying start!

Due to their failure to realise this was a public meeting, Guido can report how Bryn’s opponents described the half-pint hippy as “a violent thug with a penchant for assaulting police officers” and pointed out that he “won’t be serving the City, but serving time.” When Guido tried to question Phillips after the meeting he ran away. Literally.

Despite being convicted of violent disorder and burglary and currently awaiting sentence, bonkers Bryn claimed he has has already paid back his debt to society – because he works in a food bank in Hackney. Guido will let the judge decide that one. Happy voting in Farringdon…

        She has the wrong target

        It is Dave who Hague should replace not Gideon

        Will E. Eckerslike would be wasted in the Treasury

          Bryn is a jerk but he is right to target the Banksters; they are the real criminals.

          I see that HSBC (The World’s Money Launderers) have been fined again for money-laundering, this time in Mexico.

          The FSA is funded by subscriptions from banks – meaning that the FSA is in the banker’s pocket. When a bank pays a fine, the FSA keeps the funds, they do not go to the Treasury/taxpayer.

          These funds are then used to reduce the subscriptions the other banks pay to the FSA. If the fined bank is Government owned or subsidised, the taxpayer effectively bears the cost of the fine.

          So if a bank is fined, the taxpayer may be the one who pays, and the fine is effectively shared out between other banks, boosting their profts, and no doubt salaries, dividends and bonuses.

          Until people go to jail, there is actually an incentive for banks to launder money in the UK.

          Fucking incredible. You couldn’t make it up. Gordon Brown must have designed this scheme, as he created the FSA.

    Aha, he’s on the run, quite literally!

    What a disgrace. He should be ashamed and perhaps charges should be brought for wasting time and money in this silly stunt of his.

    “Wolfie” Smith, a young Marxist “urban guerrilla” living in Tooting, South London is attempting to emulate his hero Che Guevara.

    Wolfie is the self-proclaimed leader of the revolutionary Tooting Popular Front (the TPF, merely a small bunch of his friends), the goals of which are “Power to the People” and “Freedom for Tooting”.

    In reality, he is an unemployed dreamer and petty criminal whose plans fall through because of laziness and disorganisation.
