iLebedev: Evgeny Buys Entire Standard Staff iPads

Tidings of great joy over at the Standard this afternoon after Evgeny announced is rewarding his troops by giving each one an iPad, apparently to celebrate  their new return to profit, Olympic success and general greatness. Guido’s eyes and ears over at High Street Ken says “people are actually really happy!” Meanwhile downstairs at the Indy…

    Every child of school age should be issued with an iPad .

    UK manufacturing output registered a surprisingly sharp fall in October, resurrecting fears of recession.

    Output fell by 1.3% from September, the Office for National Statistics said, with food and drink output, notably beer, down following the Olympics.

    It was the worst fall since June, when activity was depressed by extra public holidays for the Diamond Jubilee.

    It also adds to evidence that the UK economy may be relapsing into recession after a short rebound over the summer.

    we seem to be moving backwards in time….

    the guardian reports that the new PPC may be set up by royal charter, like the BBC, to ensure separation from newspapers and politicians.

    what is a royal charter?
    who is it independant from? BBC is certainly not a good role model.

    I would like everyone to know that I was so ineffective in the Commons the other day because of my stammer and not because I’m a useless c*unt.

    All the sending kids to private schools could stop, just think of the money saved, they could sell all the private schools off for building land

    You would be very scared of Russian boyar if you were a Russian peasant, Evgeny would have grow his beard much bigger and thicker.

  45. 45
    Soapsuds says:

    Quite right, you tell him!

    Eugene has just announced expensive gifts all round because his company has returned to (Look away now, filthy degenerate word to follow) profit. That would seem to indicate an upturn to me.

    Soapsuds says:

    Another straight kinda guy then?

  47. 47
    Soapsuds says:

    Well, if it is gay marriage, he can hardly “front” it, can he?

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
