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…

    Mark Ferguson is a bit of a twat really. And by ‘a little bit of a twat’ I mean a massive twat. And by ‘a massive twat’ I mean a bell-end.

    Is “mentoring” a code word for “grooming” where children’s homes are concerned?

    Interesting case from Arizona relating to divorce:

    Think Cameroon and the geniuses here are up to pre-empting this kind of confusion ?

    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.

    So it is a pre-trial hearing as we had surmised.

    Interesting outside the fishbowl view on European Austerity:

    http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2013/01/europes-unemployment-hits-historic-high-it-has-only-itself-to-blame/266924/

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

    Did Brown quietly move over to work for them ?

    Is Red Ken still funnelling all this ‘earnings’ into VAT LIES SILVETA or is he doing what the majority of us have to do and use PAYE ??

    “IDS hits the nail on the head as Alec Shelbrooke asks him when Labour started bribing the electorate:

    Does no one remember the tax giveaways before every election when Thatcher was in power?

    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.

    Liebour bribed everyone with a boxticking job, or gave them a boxticking job that was as productive as being on the dole and cost three times as much.

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

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
