Guido’s Column in the Daily Star Sunday

In Guido’s Daily Star Sunday column:

  • Fuhrer-ious! The Lib Dem who asked how government would mark coming to power of Hitler.
  • Sadiq Khan’s £5,000 donor kebab.
  • Find out who Ed Balls was trying to push out.
  • Stringfellow could switch to UKIP to stand against Clegg in Sheffield.

All for just £1…

      Let’s bin the failed ideology of the National Liverpool Pathway “Service” and buy our own care, rather than get an insufficient dollop of treatment rationed out by a meddling bureaucrat.

      It will also mean we stop subsidising poor health choices, and immigration!

      Win all round, except for the generally lazy NHS staff.

    Is this the same Peter Stringfellow who did time for theft in the 60s and paid a fulsome tribute to Jimmy Savile? Sounds like an ideal UKIP member.

      Cyril Smith and some others are mentioned on page 10 of the IOS today – that house in Barnes. Oh and the judiciary also get a mention in coulmn 3 line 13.

      Who’s judging the judges?

        John Locke says:

        Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience, and are left to the common refuge which God hath provided for all men against force and violence.

          Ol' Crummy says:

          Which, Dr Locke, I had endeavoured to prove when I rose to the position of Lord Protector, during your school days. I pretty much had no use for Acts of Parliament, as they came from jugglers, whoremasters, wine-bibbers and cheaters. They were no better men, and probably worse if the truth be told, than the King they and I replaced after his, shall we say, untimely demise. I tried to get good honest men to replace them, but ’twas no good, anyone who could serve in a Parliament is by nature and temperament a prevaricator and a higgler. Then as now, no-one’s life, liberty, or property is safe whilst the Legislature is still in session.

      Exactly. He reminds my why, in my home city of Chester, the forefathers developed ‘The Rows’, the second floor of shops around the city centre, specifically so that locals could avoid the welsh who used to come in. Can’t Guido’s team do something similiar?

      Economist says:

      Other than of course switching holdings into Gold / Silver and generally preparing for a currency war / bond collapse, looking more long term, how would it be best to profit from an environment where the emerging major economic nations reorient their fiscal policies to properly fund their pension and social security obligations.

      NB: Ch!na is a big elephant here, and they are currently discussing revoking the single child policy in order to increase the production of tax payers over the next 20 years…

      Blowing Whistles says:

      Those who have ‘mismanaged’ this country’s finances while ripping of the tax-payer will pay the price first. The General public have been lied to and duped by the economic with the truth city & political types for decades (and that incledes many city financial jouro/hacks who have been selling the lies). They have been living it up at the expense of the masses while trying to bluff their way out of the problem that they created because of their greed.

      How long before the police come back onto the side of the masses and do their duty – not long I suspect because the house of cards, cads and criminals atop the system have been abusing the people and their children.

      Portillo – is his name on some lists – I suspect as much.


      • 77
        Not Blowing Whistles says:

        I agree with you in most part.

        However, the public do have a responsibility to bear for believing the 6% growth projections, if those were produced post 2008. Mongs.

        It is not a complete disaster though.

        Sensible policy now:

        Cut all unnecessary elements of government and push money immediately into some serious ‘infrastructure’ projects. Quango’s are a very easy target and a wholly unnecessary cost with extremely poor ROI.

        Withdraw from the EU immediately and revert to common market membership.

        Address the energy problem, in particular free up completely gas fracking and start process of producing in North Sea areas currently untapped.

        Repatriate anyone who has entered the UK whose net cost to the treasury is positive: ie. Anyone who in non-UK born and in receipt of more benefit than they have paid in tax / NI. They are an unnecessary burden.

        Compulsory front line military service could be an option to repay debt owed if they prefer to stay: Useless eaters make easy cannon fodder. It would appear that certain sections of the UK now like the idea of being warriors, why not get them fighting for us ?

        A massive increase in defense budget would be very prudent, as would be immediate moves to rebuild gold reserves.

        Then, prepare for the war which is locked in anyway.

        Guns not butter win wars and ensure long term survival.

        The time for messing around ended in 2007, but nobody listened to those who put the warning out. The time for action really is now.

        In the mean time, clearing out the liberal left political dross and miscellaneous fifth columns in the civil service and beyond would also be a good idea.

          Tachybaptus says:

          ‘Compulsory front line military service’ — you want to put weapons into their hands? Think of what happened to our soldiers at the hands of the Afghan police.


          • A bemused passer-by says:

            We wouldn’t need to actually arm them on the front line. They could always be made to clear minefields and IEDS. A hundred unarmed ‘recruits’ made to walk (or hop), say, 100ft in front of our troops.

            Think mine clearance.


        • 93
          Blowing Whistles says:

          A judicial tyranny is created when no one dares to or has the bollox to hold / call to account the judiciary – who deviously ‘hold themselves out’ as the last restraint against mob rule; when they in fact are the mob ruling – by diktat and order.

          Judges over the centuries have duped kings, religions and politicals that they are the ones who can hold the masses in oppression – hence the kings and religious leaders of old shifted the burden of imprisonment / putting people to death to the judges – so blame cannot be placed upon the religious and royal houses.

          It’s a ruse that has served so many so well. But when the judges start getting the attention and light shone upon them – then they get dirty – for the protection of their self-protection society.

          Who’s judging the judges?


          • Not Blowing Whistles says:

            Very much to your point, the judiciary who should be politically neutral do appear not to be acting with independence these days.

            Could this be an effect of domestic interference, or something to do with the tentacles of the EU infiltrating our shores ?


          • Anonymous says:

            Who is even watching the Judges?

            Insulting the public, threatening their lives and property and we go to them for justice. All in secret behind closed doors and safe from observation. They think they control the only record of their own actions.

            They are above the law and act like criminals.

      If you watch his shows you will learn a lot about practical economics.

      The only dodgy aspect to MK is that he doesn’t really dig the Austrian school. But in terms of breaking down what is really happening with the current economic system and the structural problems which have led to where it currently is and where it is going, he is very much on the money.

    There are too many people in this country who are riding on the genuine taxpayers backs.
    In the case of benefit seeking immigrants it goes without saying that those who have paid nothing in should get nothing out,and to these people I say,please rely on your country of origin to support you.
    There are however British people were it has become the norm for them to expect the workers to support their way of life.
    Then we come to the banksters and their money grubbing ways of raping the taxpayer by way of many devious ploys.
    Clamp down on these economic gangsters in no uncertain terms,hit them in the pocket and their shareholders.
    Now to the companies and their shareholders who use shady means to pay less tax were the ordinary taxpayer cannot,make these people step up to the plate and pay their fair share.
    On to the EUSSR get out of this pipedream experiment of commie failure and it will continue to fail as it is doing right now.
    We as a country cannot continue to pour our money into this load of crap.
    Finally,international aid,as far as I am concerned charity begins at home when we are seeing our own people dying when we could save them.

    Mr Pickles also launches a strident attack on the BBC for its coverage of the Government’s austerity programme.
    The minister says that the broadcaster should put its own financial affairs in order before criticising others.
    He adds: “You would think listening to the BBC that sensible savings and improved services were a bad thing.”
    Mr Pickles says that for the corporation “every saving is a cut”, writing: “It’s high time the BBC curbed some of her wasteful ways and became more transparent with our cash.”

Its like hes invented PFI for a whole new generation , Labour wish he would hurry up , George loves it , yet if you know a bit about railways , you have propbebly been in court for the last few months explaining why , it doesnt work and the money would be better spent somewhere else in the long term .

    The gang of four are stalking for Daves job , but only in 2015 so Daves guarentee could be null and void with a replacement. Nick has decided he is sticking to spending plans from saturdays headlines which can only mean one thing , we are going to have another round of credit growth fill yer boots .

    Ah well I never thought I was supporting for another dose of Blair , all along , its getting where you cant tell the difference , beat one group around the head for being emotionally stupid , whilst promising faster new eutopia to another with erm your wealth and making you pleased you did it .
