Speaker Says Bye Bye to £1.5 Million Barber

Outgoing TUC fat cat Brendan Barber is still hanging around like a bad smell. Guido understands that last night the Speaker held a leaving party in his taxpayer-funded state apartment for the £100,000-a-year union baron. The drink was flowing as the usual union thugs like Ian Lavery and John Bercow’s old pal Jack Dromey said goodbye to their strike-happy former boss. Tories are spitting feathers this morning that union-lover Rob Halfon was also in attendance. As if Barber’s £1.5 million golden goodbye was not enough…

      Generally it is those employees of a non-working variety who join unions
      Workers tend to look out for themselves

      Why cannot Cameron give a vote on EU asap? Negotiations can be done within 3 months, it doesn’t need 5 years.

      I don’t trust Cameron when he says he will give after general election.

        People who know Dave say that he’s a pretty straight kind of guy.

          This is the only reason I want it asap. I haven’t forgotten the cast iron guarantee.

          Even the vote Cameron will talk about will be whether voters agree with government on the issue. Its will not be a binding vote as to whether UK is in / out of EU.

        Cameron want complete opt-out of two issue how long will it take?

        Question takes 1 minute rest of EU can take even one day to decide and say yes or no. They already know can they just give an answer.

        Why does he want 5 years?

          It takes between 5 and 10 years to start and establish a real company.

          It takes one day to destroy it.

          So while we are waiting for them to secure a future, how many companies will die off due to the unfair competition from abroad, how many people will put on hold plans, in the uncertainty? Business growth needs only one ingredient: stability. That is why start-ups and IPOs work in other countries. The stability is given to the company for the period and they can get on with their new idea.

          Loans do not grow any company. They allow them to survive.

        To renegotiate any of the treaties we have entered into, Cameron would have to invoke Clause 50 and that he is not going to do. Everything else is posture, hot air and outright lies.

          The British Public says:

          A sovereign nation can do what it likes. This is a sovereign nation. Cameron and the rest of the supine Westminster gravy-trainers should start behaving as if they understand what that means.

        In 5 years time almost all of the current leaders in EU will be out of power. In a free and fair election they will not be re-elected by reducing the living standard of voters.

        So if Cameron wants to do it, it should be done within the next 3 months.

          Most likely scenario says:

          2013: Dave gives cast iron guarantee that he will hold referendum in 2018.
          2015: Dave loses general election.
          2018: (nothing happens)

        Cameron doesn’t want to stop

        1) free movement of workers into UK

        2) freedom to move to UK and claim benefits

        3) freedom to move to UK and use NHS for free

      Funny you should mention Sally in all this.

      Was she there I wonder?

      Sally is after a safe Labour seat.

      The Unions decide who the Labour leader is, so it is not a reach to think they could decide who gets parachuted into which Labour safe seat.

      The useless tossers in Buckingham, had their chance to ditch the lefty midget and his whore wife and bottled it. They all deserve each other.

    When will someone get a campaign going to get rid of Bercow, so called Tory, but in reality a Socialist trojan horse.
    His local Conservative Association should hang their heads in shame for not de-selecting this t**d.

            Give them fair warning first, to end the occupation of British territory and return to the isl*m*c drains they emerged from beforehand, surely?


          • Dirty raghead cunts are trying to control OUR streets says:

            Only give warning to the non-muslim populace (all five of them) to vacate their homes. Then bomb the shithole. And then rebuild the areas for the non-muslims to return to.

    Just a bit about Europe from H G Wells

    Wells saw Europe within a global context and attempted to avoid a Eurocentric internationalism which he saw as menacing to world peace and prosperity, especially given the rise of America and Japan as international players, and in light of the new forces of nationalism emerging in the old European empires.

    John Prescott says:

    So what if he was on £1.5m.? that’s nowt I was on £3m before I bailed out after the credit crunch before then I was a leading minister in the Blair government and it’s hard graft I’ll say when I was visiting McDonalds every day as well morning noon and night at night. In the end the people have to decide these things and if they have voted for him to have a fat salariation then that’s for the people to decide following a referendate with the appropriate authoritarian and I would have thought Guido could know this after all his smooching and mooching around Number 10 but anyway at least I am being brought back to the frontline with Ed who will next week announciate his Age of Chancers initiation that will bring breadline back to British workers and help them realise their propensity and who better to annuncate this than Ed and Gordon who is also speaking on disabilities becayse he led the Age of Chancers which I am partaking in and anyway who are you lot to call Brendan out he voted for One Member One Vote and he is a good man and it will be the people who decide not a bunch of suthern jessies like you lot!

        Who do you think you are Mr. Bellyache saying I cannot read rite or spell and add up when I clearly can and if it wasn’t for your constipation I would now be in high orafice and not stook here typing this shite on Guido’s blog and anyway having led the DETERERE department at Whitehall for so many years it’s clear as day that I am a man of letteration and anyone who says otherwise is just a big suthern jessie with a chipping on his shorthand and it doesn’t matter anyway because this week Ed will be appointing me to investigation change and renewal as part of the Age of Chancers.

    Yvonne from the Colliers Arms Clydach says:

    After the disgusting drunken antics of that Mark Reckless character at the very beginning of this Parliament the only honorable thing to have done would have been to ban alcohol completely from The Palace of Westminster.

    Alcohol and politics simply do not mix.

    I remember that slimey little Socialist Mitterand getting Mrs Thatcher drunk during a key meeting for the Channel Tunnel.

    It cost us a fortune that did.

    Politician just never learn.

    “Spitting feathers” is an expression for thirst, not anger. You mean “spitting tacks”, or something like that.

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
