Guidogram Going Out Shortly

The Guidogram round-up of the week is going out shortly.

Join the conspiracy and become a subscriber to the Guidogram, free, to keep in the loop. You’re either in front of Guido, or behind…

    Go to petition website itself , reports

          You all miss an important point. How many petitions were actually debated?
          Did you get your EU In/Out referendum as a result of the petition?
          Democracy isn’t working and politicians are pissing in our faces


          • Tristram Smallbore-ffipps says:

            Well what do you expect. The latter is Hague’s favourite activity on a Friday night at the Westminster S&M Club.


          • ⛵⛵⛵⛵ says:

            in a news update:
            vaguehague is running the country as the PM does a chillax.
            BigHitterHague causes a diplomatic storm….and sabotages his bid for the leadership of the Tory party.
            Michael Gove, son of knife carrying Heseltine and Portillo licks his lips…while BlondBombshellBoris has a hoot.

    Moussa Koussa says:

    Guido. We all know deep down that you are a Dave apologist.

    While your secret love is away, any chance of telling us who is actually running the country….we all need a good laugh.

          • SP4BS says:

            Oh right.

          • Forkbender says:

            Oi leave our Little Willy alone, he is trying his best.
            Today i came across this in a novel I was reading, I wonder if this rings a few bells with you laddies. This novel was actually first printed in 1936 in a french novel by Gabriel Chevallier, “Fortuntely, the attitude of her son in law, Oscar de Saint-Choul, to extentatoned for it. Having no prpfessionor capacity for active work, this young nobleman was aimingat a political candidature of a complexion as yet as yet to be determined, for prudence suggested that itwould be well to refrain from giving offense to any party until his convictions were definitely proclaimed; and this he wouldpostpone until the lastpossible moment, in order to avoid all risk of making a mistake andof being unduly hasty in his professionof faith.” This novel was about the antics of small French town big wigs, nowt really changes does it?

    Yvonne from The Colliers Arms Clydach says:

    If you are going to pick a fight:

    1. Know in advance you are going to win it.

    2. Know what you stand to gain when you win

    I learnt these simple rules through my comprehensive education in Wales.

    I did not have the benefit of an Eton or Oxbridge education.

    Hannibal from Carthage says:

    At least seven striking miners shot dead by Police for striking in South Africa.

    Lonmin PLC in the forefront. Still allowed to trade today in London just like good old Standard Chartered.

    Still playing cricket against the South African state as well.
