Deficit Denying Bloggers Beg For Bailout

Guido was not surprised to learn that the deficit deniers over at Left Foot Forward have gone into debt themselves, ending up £3,000 in the red this year. They’ve been forced to beg their niche readership for money:

“We’re still £3,000 short of what we need this year. We really need every Left Foot Forward reader to step up, make a small donation today and keep us successful. We now have scores of readers making small monthly payments to Left Foot Forward and hundreds making small donations every year. Can you join them and make a one off donation today?”

Turns out that magic money tree doesn’t really exist…

    They spout gibberish on economics and the public finances but can’t even control the budget for a website. Hilarious!

    The Bongler says:

    You can’t even trust the left to run a website these days without running up a deficit.

    That blog is as bankrupt as the ideas it supports.

    No problem, Guido, me old hindu bogtrotter, give me a minute and I’ll run up another £375,000,000,000 for me mates down the road. And the fat pissed up paddy has the temerity to say money doesn’t grow on trees. Course it does, you dumb schmuck fuck!

    I’ll donate 5p.

    Come to think of it, make that 1p.

    Another exemplary triumph for the socialist economic model!

    The Left definition of “keep us successful” is smother yourself in debt

    Forward is the new Backward

    Not really a surprise! I’m sure that Will Shaw will be able to get a large donation from his dad. If that doesn’t work I’m sure Tony, Cherie or Lord Fondlebum will dip in to their petty cash boxes to help!

    Why is the Labour Party broke? Why do cats sleep all day? Why do dustmen leave your wheely-bin lid open when it’s raining?

    Answers on a postcard please, to: Some Twerp with a microphone, BBC, Broadcasting House, London.

    I dreamt I was about to give the poor hard-up old lefty bloggers a tenner out of sympathy, but I reckon Guido or that nice Mr Montgomery will put it to better use!

    Left Foot Forward – loss-making blog.

    Guardian – loss-making newspaper.

    Labour Party – loss-making political organisation.

    1997-2010 Governments – creators of record peace-time National Debt.

    Can anybody see a pattern emerging, here?

    3 grand?

    Will Straw could cover that just by selling a kilo in £20 bags.

    How can a blog cost anything to run, let alone get 3 grand in debt?

    Looks like Keynesian economics is working as well for left foot forward as it did for the country.

    According to the BBC ” Over four feet of water fell in one part of the North West yesterday.” That would fill a wheelie-bin easily.

    I love making poor people into victims so I can spend other people’s money convincing the poor that all they need is bread and circuses.

    When I grow up i’m going to become a sociopathic liar and a thief MP.

    “Why do dustmen leave your wheely-bin lid open when it’s raining?”

    To catch four feet of rain in order to stop flash floods.

    Check out their traffic stats on, they are close to completely dead.
    Alexa Traffic Rank: 401,741 Traffic Rank in GB: 32,680

    Compare that to a far newer site the commentator:
    Alexa Traffic Rank: 169,542 Traffic Rank in GB: 7,305

    Or Guido
    Alexa Traffic Rank: 44,056 Traffic Rank in GB: 1,280

    The Left whinger’s are failing. Look at these two:

    Alexa Traffic Rank: 1,324,284 Traffic Rank in GB: 82,091
    Alexa Traffic Rank: 262,825 Traffic Rank in GB: 12,223

    Lower number is better.

    As the sainted lady once said, the problem with socialism is that, eventually, you always run out of other people’s money.

    He should have just married someone with a real job and lived off her; maybe a lawyer eh Guido?

    Sandra in Accounts says:

    So they are succesful yet lost money?

    Only in the la la land fiscal world of the left could losing money be termed thus.

    I am sure that some gravy train fellow traveller will be able to turn you on to EU funding – or other British taxpayer funding via a Union.

    And remember Will – it is one thing running a failed website – it has little consequence – but a failed state is another matter.

    Yet still the left persist with their failed & evil ideology of ruin & despair.

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.”
