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…

      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!

      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.

      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.

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

    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.

    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!

    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?

    Check out their traffic stats on Alexa.com, they are close to completely dead.

    Leftfootforward.org
    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 order-order.com
    Alexa Traffic Rank: 44,056 Traffic Rank in GB: 1,280

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

    Labour-Uncut
    Alexa Traffic Rank: 1,324,284 Traffic Rank in GB: 82,091

    Labourlist.org
    Alexa Traffic Rank: 262,825 Traffic Rank in GB: 12,223

    Lower number is better.

Eddie Izzard, in his thirteenth year involved in politics, says he’s not cursed because it took Sir Alex Ferguson “seven years to win the premiership so it doesn’t really matter.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
