Private Eye: Now Two Months Past Its Sell-By-Date

While Guido would like to thank Private Eye for their kind words about his new column in the Sun, he couldn’t help noticing the remarkable similarity between their excellent story about PriceWaterhouseCooper and the very same story that ran, just two months ago, on this blog.

Are the two connected?

We should be told…

Lord Gnome’s perennially outdated organ was two weeks past its sell by date last time Guido checked, now they are two months behind the times. Today’s issue reports on the hypocrisy of Ed Balls and Chuka Umunna taking on staffers from PricewaterhouseCooper. Back in December Guido first exclusively revealed the very same fact that PwC analysts were working for Balls and also in Chuka’s offices. Two months behind, to the day.

You’re either in front of Guido, or you’re Private Eye…

    Guido – should behave himself!

    PE may be slightly behind the times, but covers far more stories than Guido and I suspect also has a rather larger audience. Not everybody has a computer and many may not have hours to waste sitting at a computer trying to keep up all day and half the night with the comments on here. There is life outside the blogosphere! And, generally unlike Guido, PE can be read at leisure on the train etc.

    Both PE and Guido have a part to play in keeping the public abreast of political, financial and lots of other unmentionable skullduggery going on, so both should perhaps co-operate a little and just get the stories out. Lots of us on here read both, so thanks to all concerned and please both keep up the good work.

    Private Eye is a shadow of what it used to be. The really hard-hitting stories just aren’t there any more. It’s full of gossip and tittle-tattle (to borrow a phrase).

    I’ve been reading it for 25 years. I remember the anticipation of who it was going to rip to pieces next week. Now it just doesn’t happen.

    I blame it on a few things:

    1. Hislop doesn’t give a sh*t. He’s literally an old fogey who is more interested in his other projects. And the next lunch.

    2. The staffers are also not young. They don’t have the thirst for blood that proper investigative journalism needs.

    3. The proprieter doesn’t understand what PE should be about, or it’s history. She inherited it from her husband and actually she doesn’t give a sh*t, either.

    4. The next big libel case(s) would shut it down. They won’t risk it.

      Surprised that Galloway voted “yes” considering the demographics of his constituency. Maybe his fellow Party members in Respect are unaware that he has. In any event let’s hope it becomes widely known amongst his voters, who are renowned for their tolerance of homosexual behaviour.

    “Police investigating allegations of child abuse at a guest house in south-west London in the early 1980s have made their first arrests.

    The details have not yet been confirmed by the Metropolitan Police.

    The Operation Fernbridge inquiry is probing claims that senior political figures and others sexually abused boys at the Elm Guest House in Barnes.

    Scotland Yard began their investigation after receiving information from the Labour MP Tom Watson.”

      A nice little EUSSR sinecure? I’ve already got one, thanks! It’s called “PM of North-Western EU”, or “PM of Britain”, as it used to be called.

      Apparently, some of you plebs might consider voting against our membership of the EU. Rest assured, I will stop this from happening. By bringing hundreds of thousands – or possibly millions – of new EU immigrants into North-Western EU from next year, I will ensure you bigoted Tories are roundly beaten, what what!

      And don’t worry about them stealing lead from the roof of your village church – I’m going to pay them to bulldoze the church and all the surrounding countryside, so they can build squillions of houses for themselves. Spiffing!

      The Tory Party...it learns nothing and forgets nothing says:

      Cameron has split his party on a matter of principle(his)…unfortunately the majority of his party do not support him or his priorities.I know February 5th was , Cameron’s hero, Sir Robert Peel’s Birthday but was there any need to emulate him by doing a re-run of Peel’s Government’s downfall a la the Corn Laws ? Interestingly the bill to repeal these laws was passed with Whig and Radical Support(Labour and LibDem in 2013 ??) Peel’s Tory party failing to support him. As a result Peel was forced to resign shortly afterwards as he no longer commanded the support of his party. Back to 2013…don’t hold your breath on THAT one just yet but Cameron’s time as leader is short and he will be rapidly replaced when he loses the election in May 2015.

    All this bickering between PE and Guido. What matters is the release of the report on the Stafford and Cannock Chase Hospital scandal. Radio 5 Live phone is suggested part of the problem is due to cost cutting. Fewer nurses, under more and more pressure leaves little time to actually care for people. Dave and his ilk prefer to pump money into international aid with questionable benefit rather than take care of his own UK citizens. Scandalous!

      This happened on Blair’s watch but like the Iraq war, David Kelly etc he will not be held to account.

      This is just another section of the public sector not taking responsibility for its actions

      The top 5 managers in this trust all got promotions during the time of the scandal.

Sarah Vine writes of Esther McVey…

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
