Iran Ignores Earthquake Tragedy

The Iranian government has been accused of ignoring the devastating earthquake that killed 300 of its people over the weekend. Press TV, Iran’s state television channel, failed to mention the disaster while bonkers President Mahmoud Ahmadienjad and supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei took over a day to issue a response. Guido has taken a look at Press TV‘s website and has yet to find anything on the tragedy. There was, however, a story about how the Olympics have apparently been infiltrated by Zionists:

HuffPo Launches TV Channel, Begs for Viewers

In the next few minutes Huffington Post UK are launching a new online television channel. Guido was amused to find that rather than advertise all the fantastic big name stars HuffPo had convinced to take part, they have instead sent out a message begging their readers to watch and even send in contributions. At least it’ll probably be better than Al Jazeera’s Cafe…

Wandsworth Labour Threaten to Call Police Over Tory Fraud

The Wandsworth Guardian have picked up the growing scandal at Wandsworth Tories. Leader of Wandsworth Labour Party, Councillor Rex Osborn is getting involved as well, threatening police action:

“The allegations of misuse of Conservative funds are very serious and may be a matter for the police. We welcome the move by Councillor Govindia to suspend Councillor Morritt while the matter is being investigated. There are questions to be answered when these allegations were first known to Wandsworth Council. If there is any evidence that they have covered up the wrong doing as long back as 2010 they must say so before this issue damages the reputation of Wandsworth Council.”

You have to wonder who else above Wandsworth Council knew too…

Mail Online Removes Nazi Endorsement

It might be some 80 years since the Daily Mail ran a leader entitled “Hurrah for the Blackshirts“, but that hasn’t stopped RightMinds‘ Dominique Jackson from scoring a particularly awkward Nazi-inspired own goal. Dominique wrote:

“The German slogan “Arbeit Macht Frei” is somewhat tainted by its connection with Nazi concentration camps, but its essential message, “work sets you free” still has something serious to commend it. There is dignity to be gained from any job, no matter how menial, and for young people at the start of their careers, there are valuable lessons to be learned from any form of employment, whether that is on the factory floor, on a supermarket till or in the contemporary hard labour camp of a merchant bank or law office.”

The offending paragraph has now been removed without explanation…

Guardian Slapped Down Over Oxbridge Hypocrisy

Saturday’s Guardian ran a scathing attack piece criticising Oxford and Cambridge universities as representative of everything that is wrong with society. Although apparently Oxbridge “doesn’t matter“, Lucy Mangan reckons it is still “a tangible symbol of the subtle, pernicious, destructive system we live with and, by and large, accept“.[…]


Olympics In Numbers

  • £2.4 billion: Initial budget estimate made by Labour when the bid was won in 2005.
  • £9.3 billion: Final budget figure (revised when £2.4 bn number blown out of the water).
  • £12 billion: Estimate of how much the Olympics has actually cost.


Greedy Lords Demand More For Your Money

Member of the House of Lords have slammed taxpayer-funded bars and restaurants in Westminster…for not being posh enough. They might be pocketing a huge £1.4 million from the taxpayer each year to fund their luxury eateries, but apparently our generosity has gone unappreciated.[…]


Tax Dodge Investigators Funded By Labour Non-Dom

The Inspector Clouseau hacks over at The Bureau of Investigative Journalism have prided themselves in exposing tax avoidance over the last few months. In March they worked with Private Eye to reveal Vodafone had used Swiss bank accounts to exploit a loophole in tax laws, while they have even gone after the Guardian for saving millions in the Cayman Islands.[…]

Quote of the Day

Trump jokes about media bias…

“The media is even more biased against me than ever before. You want the proof? Michelle Obama gives a speech and everyone loves it. It’s fantastic. They think she’s absolutely great. My Wife Melania gives the exact same speech! And people get on her case! And I don’t get it! I don’t know Why!”
