      Moussa Koussa's sockpuppet says:

      When the history of the West of this century is written, Rupert Murdoch will be seen as its worse enemy. A man who wanted the freedom to do his thing but deny it to others. A man whose only regards for democracy is the freedom to make money and influenced its governance. A man whose only regard for freedom of expression is his freedom to speak for all and keep other mouths shot.

      A man who began a great danger to civilisation.

        The Sun did this for money pure and simple. Kelvin Mackenzie should get off his soap box, it’s not about freedom of the press. Prince Harry getting naked? So what but it’s a side issue here. The Sun has demonstrated it will continue to be an ugly sore on our society justifying every sleazy, poorly researched ‘story’ as being in the public interest. There are 62 million people in the UK, I don’t care if 3 million or so idiots buy the Sun. It’s a small percentage. And they’ll vote for who they’re told to at the next election.

          Maybe Rupert Murdoch isn’t all wrong. Just ruthlessly honest perhaps? Like many others, he appears to have decided long ago to make hay whilst the sun was still shining. Murdoch often said words to the effect that celebrities etc brought their woes upon themselves by their behaviours and that the papers just reported these for public consumption.

          Murdoch has helped make naked capitalism something which many now despise, but only like kids despising their teachers and parents for highlighting their own self destructive behaviours.

          Market forces drive what News Corporation/International delivers. If the public (markets) didn’t want it, they’d go out of business. Leninism says that naked capitalism does not have to be undermined by foreign agents, it just needs to be left to self-destruct. Was he wrong?.

          This appears to be the nature of an incorrigible infantile/adolescent identity disorder, and we appear to have been breeding this across Libertarian democracies by the millions.

          It seems to me that Libertarians are getting their just deserts and that much of Europe and the USA is throwing a collective narcissistic hissy fit as expected..It is all in the demographics if you look.

      2. Guido criticises all politicians (tim yeo anyone?). It’s just that Labour has more people to be critical of.

      Bonfire of the Vanities says:

      Might be more use to have an inquiry into the appalling teaching for maths and english in the state sector for the past 30 years and the grade inflation that has been used to cover it up. Any employer will tell you that some pupils coming out of secondary education purportedly with Grade C and above for Maths and English at GCSE struggle to write simple letters or do simple mental calculations. You’ll also find that some universities have to hold semninars in the first term to get some of their fresher intake up to the required level….NOW that is something to have an Inquiry about not listening to the bollocks being spouted by the vested interests in the state education system

        Expat Geordie says:

        When I was 16 I got a job in my local newsagents behnd the counter. I had to work out all prices and change in my head, and never got it wrong.

        Now as a 42 year old working in planning for an insurance company, this ability is what currently pays my wages as I am always asked to check the figures of younger collegues who can’t tell when they have suffered from fat finger syndrome on their calculators. And when asked for an instant assessment I can give it instantly, and not have to spend five minutes pissing about with a calculator.

          Handycock No1 Trougher in Parliament says:

          I wish I were educated like you Geordie, I can neither spell nor do addition or subtraction. I am however adept at using politics to fund my lavish lifestyle, visiting Russia for sex and organising planning permissions for my boys in Portsmouth for kickbacks, and I have been doing this since the age of 21 never really having had a proper job since then. Jahbulon.


          • Monitoring Officer says:

            Even though I read this blog every day, I am unaware of any corruption in Portsmouth City Council. I know nothing of Handy’s boys, the drug dealers, nothing of their relationship with him regarding planning permissions, nothing of resulting kickbacks and political donations and certainly nothing of the villa in Spain they bought for him. The fact that in the few short years I have worked at Portsmouth, my salary has more than tripled, organised by Handy, has nothing to do with my lack of knowledge about any of the above subjects. Boaz.


          • Chief Executive says:

            I know nothing about these things either. The Taxpayer’s Alliance recently reported that my salary and pension payments were in excess of £170,000 a year, thanks Handy. Boaz.

      Job interviews are necessary in order to find out what the education system fails to tell employers about the shoddy goods that roll off the end of its production line.

    Let’s look forward to the impending rehuffle.
    Rumour has it the fraudster (David Laws) is to be brought back, a proven liar (Jeremy Hunt) will be kept, as will the woman who is unable to use a calendar (Theresa May). Baroness Warsi will continue to bleat whatever right-wing opinions the Daily Mail has spouted forth that morning.

    All of this insult is merely the prelude to the news that Boy George will remain in the Treasury with his crayons and abacus, trying to think of a royal event or weather system on which he can blame our next quarter negative growth. The man has never held a proper job, and is chancellor because his mate is PM. He cannot do the job. Even Conservatives are learning this. If we must have a conservative chancellor, let’s have a grown-up like Ken Clarke or Vince Cable, who are both at least able to count.

      National Socialist says:

      This really does say it all. Grayling who has done a piss poor job is to be promoted. Maria Millar who actively acts AGAINST the interests of the disabled is looking to get a promotion. The likes of the ass kisser Matthew Hancock is going to the whips office (no pun intended), David Laws who committed fraud against the taxpayer is being welcomed back into the fold, and Osbourne is to be given yet more time to do even greater damage to the economy….. well done Dave, this gets more like a sketch from a Laurel & Hardy film every day!!

        Moussa Koussa's sockpuppet says:

        If David Laws gets shuffled back in I’m going to get extremely angry.

        Just remember how he would have been treated if he was a £40,000 benefit fraudster.

        He should be in the cell next to Asil Nadir.

          Nowt wrong with David Lawes dude. Self made millionaire and loads of experience outside the world of politics. He is one of the rare breed of politicians who is not there for the money or the power. That he did not want to hurt his mum and dad by them finding out he was a knob jockey is not such a bad thing.

    He should get on with the serious work needed for our country. Build an airport in the Thames Estuary, get fracking gas to cut energy bills (and CO2 emissions), build the Severn tidal barrage and tell Brussels to fuck off.

      Clearly you do not understand membership of the EU and all it entails.

      Large scale contracts have to be put out to tender to companies EU wide. These companies do not have to employ a single British worker, or buy any British products, or use any British contractors.

      As for shale ( and the even less talked about Methyl Clathrates ) you are entirely correct, though the CO2 emmission bollocks, is a massive, politically driven hoax and tax ram-raid on the unfortunate and gullible.

    Come on Guido. Get your finger out. You have been beaten to the story this time.

    “News reaches The Commentator of another inglorious moment for Britain’s state broadcaster.

    This week, a Trotskyist campaigner was interviewed by the BBC (38mins), which attempted to pass him off as an ‘ordinary’ unemployed member of the public.

    Although Matthew Whale has appeared on BBC programmes before, for what appears to be the sake of having an anti-government, ‘Joe Public’ voice on the show, BBC Radio 5Live conveniently passed over the man’s hard-leftist activist background.”
