Twitter Media Bitch Fight: Continuity-Ken Get One in the Eye

Boris is getting a deserved kicking this afternoon over Ray Lewis’ £20,000 one day-a-week job. In addition to his unpaid position as Ambassador for Mentoring, Ray Lewis is being paid as the London Mayor’s Senior Advisor for Mentoring. Fishy.

Obviously the tin-foil Continuity-Ken brigade are frothing this afternoon, demanding that the Standard splash the story. Discussing the issue with their hack Pippa Crerar, LabourList’s Mark Ferguson, with a new found regard for taxpayer money, scored a spectacular own goal:

Heard the one about the paper covering up a story that they broke…

        If and when “mentoring” is done diligently and well, it is worth every penny spent, because the failure rate lowers – it’s just like putting an experienced pilot in as co-pilot for a less experienced one – and to follow that analogy – it is far better to have paid the price for having a seasoned co-pilot that subsequently you didn’t need, than the opposite. (Step forward Wing Commander Ferage!)

        Just look at Bliar and Broon – 13 years of the two faced incompetent wank.ers, lying through all four mouths, and no grown up to hold their hands, just VolderMandelMort to hold their dicks. Result – economic plane crash and cohesion meltdown.

        Still – they WERE, just like the young lady in the “I Used To Care” Road Kill T Shirts advert to the right, a rather large pair of tits.

    Anyone catch the IMF letter which indicated that the austerity recommendation was a result of math error ? Screwed up the fiscal multiplier.

    Everyone in Chingford says:

    Boris is well dodgy. He sought votes by lying to everyone in Walthamstow and Chingford saying he’d make sure that the dogtrack was reopenned for dog racing and then let the council get away with a bent decision, justified on fantasy numbers.

    Changing the subject …..

    This woman. Sarah. Ege sentenced to min 17. Years in prison for torturing then. killing then burning her poor. Wretch of a defenceless son for failing to learn a chapter of the quran off by heart every week . Apparently this unmitigated animalistic cruelty lasted at least three. Months .

    I do not know if ege is an arabic or british or scandinavian surname or otnher .

    Wfhatever . Tell you what … Why not sentence her to learning one chapter of he Quran a week and if she fails as inevitably she will at the first hurdle. …..why not torture her senseless and then burn her house down with her in it .

    Fuck the politically correct. Judicial tariff…. That is the only punishment this. Banshee deserves.

    (I've been renamed) DA-Notice says:

    I’d far rather have Boris’ cronies than Ken’s; it’s cheaper for one thing and slightly less Marxist.

    Which is better: Lewis or Jasper? There’s only one way to find out: FIGHT!

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.”
