Ministry of Unsound

Question-dodger Tim Farron has trousered a generous donation from an unlikely source. The latest Register of Members’ Interests shows that London nightclub Ministry of Sound gave Farron £4,000 in September to help out with his campaign for LibDem party president. Given he was re-elected unopposed last week Guido is struggling to see how that was money well spent…

    Duplictous, treanous, naive, 6th form politics – the Lib Dems.

    When Clegg crashes the party into the floor at the next GE I hope the infighting destroys the rest of those evil bastards.

    Ministry of Sound – what are they getting for the money Farron?

      Are donations to politicians tax deductible? They give him four grand, he gives it back (in cash) less, say a 10pc ‘transaction’ fee.

    How did things get this bad? says:

    I see the bbc are in full pro Labour propaganda mode today, “How very dare they stop giving out shed loads of money to dossers, tossers and all the rest of the trash from all over the world living off the taxpayer?”

    This is the line from that Toynbee person paid by the bbc (more taxpayer money) as the commentator on the Conservative conference. Even Brillo is taking the Labour shilling or maybe he’s still tired and emotional and needs three indigestion tablets.

      Look, it’s everyone’s fault for watching the BBC at the time – not our fault, okay?

      We’ll have an enquiry when all of this has blown over. Possibly.

      There’s ONE Tory MP who is kicking up dirt, but the rest of the Tory party is silent. Why? The BBC is seriously weakened at the moment and there is a chance to finish it off.

      There needs to be a full independent investigation into the BBC, Lord Tebbit would be a good choice to lead it.

      I have nothing more to say about the Lib Dems. They are rapidly becoming irrelevant. The clock is ticking. Their grasp on power is gradually slipping like someone clinging desperately to a lifeboat. And unless the Tories start acting like Tories (which is unlikely) the same will be true of them.

    Radio 5 is a hoot. Supposedly coming from the Tory party conference, the audience is the usual bunch of unemployed socialist politics students and mongs.

    What bell end claimed he’d applied for more than 50 jobs and now had his own plan…to write personal poems, but he needed ten grand to get it going TEN FUCKING GRAND!!!

    Writing poems is a fucking hobby not a job, of course Viki Pollard took him seriously.

      Is that some kind of a spoof? Did the interviewer not round on ‘em?

      ‘Hold on a fucking minute – why do you need 10,000 quid to start a business to write personal poems. Here’s a biro, here’s a sheet of photocopier paper – off you go…’

    What’s it like being a Tory in a Cameron/Osbourne Liberal party?

    Can you tell me exactly what their achievements are? Answers on a pin head?

    Cameron failed to win the last election bearing in mind we had the worst PM in power ever!He definitely won’t win the next either! But they could join the next Lib/Lab government as Liberal sympathisers?

    The real tory party is dead. but so is the real labour party, stuffed with MPs parachuted in by the party elite and unions. That remind you of anything?

    But the real death is the death of the country previously known as England. All parties have welcomed and supported this, as a federal Europe draws ever nearer. Even the “veto-er” Cameron!
    A veto, Latin for “I forbid”, is the power (for example a power of an officer of the state) to unilaterally stop an official action, especially the enactment of legislation. But they all went ahead any way didn’t they!!

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”
