Exclusive: Romney Cuts Fundraiser Tickets
Prices Slashed from $25,000 to $10,000!

Mitt Romney’s London visit is not going well. After insulting the Olympics (a grave crime apparently) and forgetting Miliband’s name, Guido learns that tonight’s fundraiser is struggling to get the numbers.

The Republican candidate has been forced to cut prices from $25,000:

“From: XXXX
Subject: romney dinner…..reduced price for last minute guests has been negotiated

Good news:  The Romney dinner in London on Thursday, July 26th is reaching an all time record for a one event fundraiser.  In order to get us over the top, we have been allowed to invite a few last minute guests at 10,000 per ticket vs 25,000 per ticket.”

Lovely spinning there…

UPDATE: This is an invite to Romney’s reception tonight:

Guido hears the price has been cut to $1,000…

    “Who, after a good dinner would want a sticky, heavy, glutinous lump of caramel and stodgy sponge clining to the inside of their oesophagus?” That’s the sort of thing Yanks like

    I wouldn’t pay $10 to be at a dinner with Mitt or his surgically perfected wife!

    Mr Romney can’t recall the name of the labour party leader – that makes him a good guy in my books. Let’s hope he doesn’t have to suffer the indignity of meeting the ballses or the blairs or the browns or any of the other insufferably righteous socialist cabal of traitors. I presume he has to meet Mr Cameron, and the other two by default.

      That’s nothing. He can’t remember the name of the governor who introduced the healthcare mandate to Massachusetts, or the CEO of Bain capital between 1999 and 2002. Could be Alzheimers.

    Mr Romney has not forgotten Mr Milliband’s name.

    He called him Mr Leader because it was he who led us through the hacked phone crisis which has resulted in multiple arrests and charges.

    He’s showing how stupid and ignorant he is. He is not qualified to run our country. If he insults ppl in London, what will this ignoramus do as president. Mr. Obama has more class than he has in his little finger. If he gets in as president I feel very very sorry for everyone. Things are really gonna go down hill.

Owen Paterson lifts the lid on the Green Blob:

“I received more death threats in a few months at Defra than I ever did as secretary of state for Northern Ireland.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
