    Dan Stato says:

    It does you no good to listen to Cameron on R4 Toady this early in the week.

    What a slimy, duplicitous, mendacious quizzling he is.

    By lunchtime I will be a member of UKIP.

  22. 22

    Déjà vu ?

    Or even Quisling

  25. 25
    Ctesibius says:

    I always accepted that the pointlessness of ‘Rich and Mark’ was part of charm of the Guido experience, but I think the joke has reached its end-point now.

    There’s a sort of post-modern irony in laughing at a cartoon that is supposed to be funny, but which isn’t. But repeating the experience week after week after week and eventually it dawns that the irony is perhaps no longer ironic, and that ‘modern’ is no longer ‘modern’.

    The one positive is that this cartoon makes starting work a bit more alluring.

    14th January 2013 By Daily Star reporter
    MOST Brits admit to having no idea about politics.

    BREAKING NEWS Bank of England says:

    For several years the USA have promised budget deficit reductions but the deficit over the last 20 years has now ballooned to a massive 16 trillion dollars.

    As a result of the “fiscal cliff” settlement we think it highly likely that the deficit will increase during the next 12 months .

    THe Bank has a duty to protect sterling holders and investors and this duty is independent of Government. To achieve this end from noon today The Bank will insist that paper dollars are henceforth covered by a deposit of 0.075 grams of Gold .

    UK’s RAF C-17 plane heading for Mali has broken down in France and is not expected to leave until tomorrow.

    After years of squandering taxpayers money and giving your money away to every third world country on the planet ,these cheeky bastards are upping national insurance yet again !
    If we were not giving 55 million a day to the now prosperous third world EU eastern block shitholes , you would still be able to retire at the agreed age of 65 with a much better pension than we have now

    Bring on Nigel and Ukip before these clowns do any more damage

    It would be much more sensible to pay for pensions by raising Vat by say 0.125%.

    NI is a tax on employment. This will raise unemployment still further!

    Tom Catesby says:

    Just a thought on the referendum and Britain’s current membership of the EU. Has anybody else noticed the steady build up of scare mongering via all branches of the media about the ‘dire political, social and economic consequences’, of leaving the EU under the present ‘arrangements’? It is interesting to see, who has been crawling out from under their metaphorical stones, to try to frighten the British people, in pursuit of their own interests or misguided ideologies.

    Article 50 of The Lisbon Treaty would establish exactly the terms we would accept if we leave the EU.
    Why will Cameron not use these facts to put the argument for staying in?
    He prefers to hide the truth and rely on scare stories.
    This is the treaty that was so important when Brown signed it, Cameron broke his cast iron promise.

    Well, its going to be fun watching Cameron try to ‘renegotiate’ our membership of the EU, as that’s what he’s pinning all his hopes on. Especially as the EU (or at least the bits that matter) have already said ‘No’.

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.”
