Compare and Contrast: Value for Gordon


  1. 1
    Lefty Fucktard says:


    We don’t recognise Gordon Brown.

    Or this Tony Blair you keep going on about.

    Nothing happened between 1997 and 2010. It was a national holiday.

    Time 2 CTRL, ALT & DEL says:

    Details of Gordons expenses would be interesting.
    Napies and new phones would probably top the list.

      Guido, I thought everone had decided that MPs don’t work anyway, ” despite the fact that he never turns up for work…”


    • 101
      Old Tory Bigot says:

      I would love to know the breakdown of the one-eyed mong’s expenses. Would a FOI request do it Guido?

      It’s all very amusing to hoot and bark about this but I feel this is a serious matter and should be looked into.

      Brown is now an MP in name only. He has abandoned his constituents and gone off on the lecture circuit, lining his pockets and having the brass neck to claim in expenses what many of his constituents would not earn in 10 years.

      Brown is fucking disgrace and should be investigated for fraud.


      • 105
        Old Tory Bigot says:

        “expenses that many of his constituents”

        I’m trurning into Ernie Wise – “that play what I wrote”.


      • 108
        Time 2 CTRL, ALT & DEL says:

        most of those who voted for him are on expenses – just have another name beneifts and they do sod all for them except produce more children for the state to pay for.

    Some may say that it is a good thing he does not attend due his famous Jonah curse.

    Can I have a job like Mr Brown has got, please?


  8. 10
    Steve Miliband says:

    Psychiatrists ain’t cheap you know


  9. 11
    Gordon Brown says:

    I have been working on a solution to the global financial crisis that started in America and was nothing to do with me.

    So far..and its early days, but I’m pretty sure that more taxing and more spending on welfare and public sector,unionised, non jobs is the answer.

    I shall report to the House in due course.


    • 93
      Forkbender says:

      Strange that you say that Gordy but there are wispers going around all all those lovely investment banks along with our lot, because regulation was reduced and what was left was not enforced by you and your pals, it was wild west time in London.


  10. 13
    Edward Miliband says:

    We took our eyes off the ball when we were in power. And I apologise for that. The next time will be different.



    • 95
      Ed Miliband ( Lying Moron ) says:

      How much is that utterly useless Climate Change Act of your’s going to cost the taxpayer Ed? Oh yeah £780,000,000,000………. chickenfeed eh?


  11. 14
    SP4BS says:

    Is there a source for all this expenses info? Theyworkforyou is a good few years out of date. He’s mainly cheap because he doesnt have any staff, but is he really not claiming any living allowances etc. now?

    2008 total :£46,931 (647th)

    Bring on the Friday caption contest please.


  15. 18
    The Paragnostic says:

    I wonder if he is using public funds to run his speechifying activities?

    I’m assuming that he benefits from the ex-PM payments, so is already being paid to offset the massive demand for his services – is this paid separately from parliamentary expenses, and has the monocular moron been double-dipping?

    That would fit well with his behaviour in government, when he was wont to announce the same spending plan multiple times – this may just be the reverse of that.


    • 48
      Rat's arse says:

      I believe Brown had a secret stash of money, known as his war chest. Apparently no-one was supposed to know about these millions, and apparently no-one knew where this ‘war chest’ disappe*red to when he left Office.

      Why this isn’t investigated, I just don’t know.

      Today the howibble howibble Tories drowned lovely ‘fluffy wuffy’ kittens.

      Its twue I tell you Its twue!!!


  17. 20
    Tony Blair says:

    Hi plebs

    The middle east has made me awfully rich! I don’t even live in the country I fucked up anymore, so as to avoid paying income tax.

    Must go now. I have another couple of oil companies to mediate between so I can buy Cherie a new wardrobe from Barney’s in New York.


  18. 21
    SP4BS says:

    ho ho….

    “… specifically mentioned in a Times article about manipulating the performance figures for the Theyworkforyou website.[5] The article claimed new MPs boosted “their ratings on the internet by saying very little, very often.”… one of which, on the Ascension Islands simply noted that a former mayoress of Kettering came from St Helena”

    So he’s the B1lly B0wden of the house?

    One good reason why we should cast Scotland adrift & let them pay for their own gold diggers.

      Albert Hall says:

      socialists generally resort to abuse.


      • 94
        CHRIST ON A BIKE! says:

        The don’t resort to abuse, they use it from beggining to end, interspersed with
        “we are lovely because we like poor people, we care so much and are really lovely, honest! we are no…no.. we really are. Please believe us!”

        But being that socialists, either cannot or will not rationalise their true beliefs to a wider audience, their only option is to demonise their opponents with ad-hom attacks and boiler plate slogans and make broad self-regarding statements about “caring so much” etc.

        Hence the left dominate shallow communication mediums such as Broadcasting (BBC of course) and Twatter, where hurling abuse and making bogus statements is easy because they don’t have to rationalise it.

    Sarah says:

    Most of the expenses are incurred on our daily commute to Kelty by bus. As we are approaching Christmas, we have lots of planning and arrangements to take care of. You will have guessed by now that we are switching on the Christmas Lights again. Gordon is so looking forward to it.


    • 40

      Dear Sarah,
      I am just writing to confirm that when we did ask Gordon if he could do the lights it was stressed at the time that he was on a shortlist.

      So far Keith Chegwin, Dean Gaffney and Andi Peters can’t make it. But we are still waiting to hear from former royal butler Paul Burrell.
      And the lady who does Peter Andre’s hair is still a possible.

      So please do not announce that you will be turning on the festive light {due to Tory cutbacks ‘just one candle’ is our merry slogan} until we contact you

      To think that a significant proportion of the electorate apparently wish these clots to grasp the levers of power is beyond depressing.

          My lovely old terraced house in Ravensbourne Gardens is now up for sale at £895,000.

          I wouldn’t give you a tenth of that for it now as the tide of filth will soon encroach and destroy a once lovely part of England.

    What are you moaning about. Gordon made up for his expenses by getting you great deal for your gold on behalf of your masters Goldman Sachs……………………………….
    “Faced with the prospect of a global collapse in the banking system, the Chancellor took the decision to bail out the banks by dumping Britain’s gold, forcing the price down and allowing the banks to buy back gold at a profit, thus meeting their borrowing obligations.”

    Unfortunately for Guido and his flock of Neo Nuts, Hollobone is considered the Tories MOST rebellious MP. He cannot abide Dave and Gidders and all their policies. You could say he is doing Browns work for him.

    It was also Hollobone who forced “The Witch” to disclose her expenses for the last 5 years of her regime . Exposing that she claimed over £500K in that period, making current claims look like small fry.

    So well done Philip, Guido neo nuts don’t realise yet, that you are NOT one of them.

      Yet he still claims much MUCH less than your beloved Gordon. By ‘the witch’ I am presuming you mean Thatcher. You state she claimed £500k over 5 years. let us consider your beloved Gordon’s claims over the lifetime of this parliament which will be 5 years. At the rate he is claiming it will be well over £600k for a 5 year period. That’s okay though, afterall he’s your beloved Gordon.

    Tay King-dePisse says:

    What really kills me, though, is when an MP actually DOES spare the taxpayers, such as when Vince Cable even forwent the “London Supplement” for MP’s whose legal abode is considered too close to Westminster to plausibly need a second home and allowances for one, his colleagues made him out a mug for not trying it, even to the extent of having him claim for previous years (unsuccessfully).


    • 92

      Methinks you will find that in such situations people expect you to “play the game” for if you don’t awkward questions might be asked as to why others do or whether said budget is necessary. And if you dont “play the game” dont expect any favours. Needless to say I once didn’t claim some expenses after being told to “play the game” and as I understand matters after the advanced lecture to us all to claim them, I wasn’t Mr popular. Somehow I just couldn’t bring myself to claim expenses for charity work – didn’t seem right. I suppose had I been flat broke I might have.

      Simple truth of the matter is that what those at the top do will be emulated by those below, in just the same way that an inspiring leader illuminates, a leader who plays petty politics and money grabs will inspire this in those below as well as drawing those who would like said privilidges one day themselves. Such darkness has done immesurable harm to this nation.

      The only real solution is for our leaders to evolve and become better people. Sadly few seem interested in such inner work and personal self improvement. Form rules over substance. Very sad.

    The 12 North and north east of Scotland MPs cost the tax payer £3 million between wages and expenses. Now these BUMS are saying I should vote no to independence in the Scottish referendum.
    Well, Brown, Alchy Kennedy and the rest of you Westminster parasites I,m voting for independence and put you all out of a job.

    Yah cheap expenses because he doesn’t have an office for his constituents to see him in and doesn’t pay any associated costs. Plus his mate the duke of buccleuch probably provides a chauffeur driven car foc and a free pad in London. No wonder hollobone voted against lords reforms.

      Ha ha don’t make me laugh. This far right racist bigot doesn’t bother with a constituency office. No wonder his expenses are so low. If you ant to see him in private you have nowhere to go but the local Tory club. His contributions to debates consist of little more than one liners.

    Brown’s expenses now seem like a bargain compared to the Trillion quid he squandered when he did bother to turn up for work between 1996 and 2010, the feckless one eyed tosser.
