Guardian Media Group Horror Accounts in Full

The Guardian Media Group have snuck out their figures on a quiet Friday during the Olympics:

Guido is having a read and will get back to you…


  1. 1
    Kebab Time says:

    A good day to bury bad news!

    Ps more class from Labour MP >

  2. 2
    Durr... says:

    Will it be a loss???

  3. 3
    Pollytwaddle says:

    But where shall I publish my twaddle if this continues to its inevitable conclusion?

      Old Rope says:

      There is a fish and chip shop in Tuscany which is looking for someone to decorate its wrappers. I am not sure if you have enough experience, but why not give it a go?

  4. 4
    Yeah, right... says:

    Saves them the considerable worry about how to avoid the tax they would have had to avoid had they made any profits.

  5. 5
    Bluebottle says:

    But at page 6 it says that they have had a ‘remarkable’ year.

    UK accountancy standards are the best in the world.

    • 8
      Hugh Janus says:

      And the first 23 pages are just OTT drivel. Presumably the idea is that most will have given up before they get to the accounts?

  6. 7
    Yvonne from the Colliers arms Clydach says:

    I bought a copy of the Guardian once in 1976.

    It was full of typing errors and when I looked at the cricket scores they seemed to think that A Jones and AL Jones were one and the same person playing for Glamorgan so I have not bothered with it since and I have to say it has done me no harm whatsoever.

      I drive a Skoda says:

      Little things for little minds.

    • 17
      One Term Dave says:

      Nothing else to do old chap, country’s fine, no probs with the economy. I feel entitled to take it easy after our great successes of the past 2 years…..

    • 18
      Twat Watch says:

      Does he really walk around the office in a team GB T shirt?

    • 19
      The Director of Prosecutions says:

      I am not too happy about where he’s putting his right hand

    • 21
      Egaraf says:

      Wot the fuck has this gotta do with the Guardian’s accounts? Friggin UKIPPERS hijackin and spammin Guido’s site!

    • 22
      Moggie says:

      Where’s Larry?

    • 27
      Taxfodder says:

      Wearing “The Shirt” I see to watch the telly. I have also noticed of late the tendancy for some UK ministers to wear those silly little national flag buttonhole pins (badges) emulating the Yanks god help us.

      Monkey see Monkey do, if only wearing a Badge was all there was to it.

      I don’t know who is advising Dave (perhaps its all his own idea) they must be all of nine years old, if so no doubt a Rambo headband and reflective shades to beef up the wavey image is on the cards…

      Give it up Dave, we all know you are a wavey Toff just about everything you do (or don’t do) confirms it…

      • 32
        I can't find my sunglasses says:

        As a taxpayer I thought I paid for Downing Street as some sort of Office from which the Prime minister could work.

        Oh how wrong I was.

    • 33
      Grimy Miner says:

      And remote in hand, ready to jump channels as soon as the shutter is fired. Whatcher gonna watch for the next Photo op, Dave?, Syrians massacring each other? A gigantic pile of £50 notes in flames as the EU pi$$es away today’s contribution?

      Plonker is too nice a word for him.

    keredybretsa says:

    Well let’s be honest…it couldn’t have happened to a naicer group.

  9. 14
    A Rusbridger says:

    The Guardian will close once I’ve extracted my last £1 million pay packet.

  10. 16
    Nicola Clubb says:

    I think it is ‘Take out the trash day’ (Quote from West Wing)

  11. 20
    Anonymous says:

    Lol, their opinion of the importance of their own journalism is hilarious.

    “Uniquely open”

    Laugh? I nearly sharted.

    • 29
      Pundit too too says:

      !Uniquely open” – I must admit this was truly arrogant of them. As well as a cynical and hypocritical lie.
      I see they have put a Guardian man in Aleppo to keep the BBC informed of what is happening there. Now the BBC no longer say “information cannot be verified – ho ho I guess he will be pulled in the next week, and another front man stringer for the Guardian / BBC brought in, usually without book insurance – perhaps they are using unpaid interns for front line war experience with lavish promises?

  12. 23
    Most intelligent people says:

    They’d be better off shutting the Guardian down and throwing the money at the horses, the lottery, the drain….

  13. 25
    Juniper Berry says:

    Why don’t they do the same as Dave and donate to India? That’s what all the best loss making organisations do.

  14. 26
    Sgt Plod, FSA and HMRC says:

    No chance that this is a tax fiddle from the very upright Guardian?
    Crippling losses funded by offshore unethical funding – have the Church of England any funding in this group? Suspect so.
    Lets move on then shall we.

  15. 28
    Cow Tax says:

    Why would a failing business employ Polly?

  16. 30
    Pundit too too says:

    Attention. Website Attack.

  17. 31
    Hannibal from Carthage says:

    If it ever came to a fist fight down a dark alley in Damascus I tell you I would rather have that lass than Cameron on my side.

  18. 36
    get your fucking Team GB shirt off and get back to work, bellend says:

    Downing Street, giving £5million to some militant scumbags in Syria to kill other militant scumbags is most certainly not ‘the right thing to do’.
    Not when my 98 year old gran had to wait 9 hours in A&E to be treated.

  19. 37
    Jimmy says:

    “Guido is having a read”

    Why start now?

    • 42
      JH says:

      Here’s some reading material for you Jimmy: The Road to Serfdom by F A Hayek. It explains why your dogma fails. Every single time. Wherever it is tried. Leaving nothing but poverty, misery and more often than not mass graves in its wake.

      Apparently there is a condensed readers digest version – with pictures! – if the original would take up too much of your valuable blog-trolling time.

  20. 43
    Vacant Possession says:

    They needn’t worry; The BBC will still place 90% of their adverts with them.

  21. 45
    fitzfitz says:

    Its sneaked .

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
