Local Council Boss Accused of Employee Surveillance Operation

Guido smells blood on the Isles of Scilly. Regular readers will remember back in May when he broke the news of the local council throwing the rule book out of the window to try and stop the island’s school becoming an academy. The Department for Education is investigating on the ground and the mainstream media has been chasing the “the climate of fear in paradise” saga. It seems things are coming to a head…

A school employee is accusing the locally loathed council Chief Exec Philip Hygate of placing her house under observation and threatening her family. Hygate has lawyered up and has been spotted leaving the Town Hall late at night clutching bundles of documents. The police have been called in under S1 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997

      Guido I don’t know when you actually worked for an employer, but it is very common now in offices to have video cameras in work places, it gives you a creepy feeling, now if there had been cameras if the dressing rooms of J Savile none of thse shenanigans would have happened, it might be just for the lower orders, I used to think they may even have them in the staff toilets.

    Can we report Respect’s Naz Kahn to the police for her comments saying Hitler was a good guy and her question on what good the J*ws have done for the world? I’m all for free speech but given that people have gone to prison for making jokes, we should at least use the system to get scumbag pieces of shit like this anti-s*mitic fuckwitted c-unt banged up in prison where she belongs.

      I agree with the crazy muslim bitch part. She’s a rancid fucking muzee c-unt and a traitor to the country she lives in. Probably lives off benefits too.

      Many of you should read the Independent – where many taboo subjects have been spoken of over the past few months. Their Articles and letters columns have broached the A-S subject which so many are scared to broach.

      When any of you speak or write of Freedom of speech – you ought to be aware of the “Universal declaration of freedom of speech” (1948) Article 19.

      It has served many of its users well over the decades – however those who really want it scrapped now are those who have been found to have been abusing it – especially since many unpalatable truths have come to light since the downfall of communism.

      Said truth’s – point at a huge ‘distortion’ of history for the benefit of certain ‘ones’ and to the detriment of the masses. Guess which ‘ones’?

    Tom Watson purchased “male enhancer cream”. :-D

    Well, I suppose he’ll try anything to enhance his undoubtedly tiny cock, hence why he’s always so red faced and angry. He’s bitter at being a fat, disgusting, zit covered c-unt with no dick.

        OK. A fat, disgusting, revolting, zit covered c-unt with no dick, no charm, no personality, no charisma, no likeability, and a face you would never get tired of kicking with steel toe capped boots lined with rat poison.

      BBC Executive says:

      Listen, you upstart. We here at the BBC are overwhelmingly for anything which undermines the traditional culture of this hideously white country, such as mass immigration and the EU so if you think we are going to give you anything like favourable coverage you need your head examined.

      Instead, we will in our inimitable way provide ‘balanced’ coverage, carefully balanced between left wing and far left wing sensibilities.

      Now pay your fucking telly tax.

    Leader of the Labour Group in Tower Hamlets, Cllr Joshua Peck told EastLondonLines: “In Tower Hamlets we are proud of our mixed community and our history of unity, those who preach hate have no place in our borough.”

    really that must be a new policy. most of the houses of the peaceful and merciful faith will be closed down then

    Perhaps I should watch my step.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
