Come Fly With Gordon

Last year the jet-setting Prime Mentalist came under fire for blowing taxpayers’ cash on flights from Scotland to London. Though most Scottish MPs take the train south of the border, Guido learns that over just a three-month period last summer Brown claimed almost £6,000 on expenses for air travel from Scotland to the capital. That despite not speaking in the House for a year.

Incidentally, in the last month he has declared over £320,000 in cash from speeches and advisory work that definitely goes to towards the full running costs of his office, and the rest he totally gives away to charity. With his once loyal lieutenants twisting the knife today and running for the hills, isn’t it time Gordon took the hint?

        Giving other peoples money away is something that socialist Cameron endorses with such passion, he is giving yet to be born childrens futures away and mostly for useless shite.

    I was never in the IRA either says:

    Its becoming fashionable.

    Our own dear Demi God St Gerry (I was never in the IRA) Adams has recently been outed. having a bit of the old prostrate problem. Rather than get surgery in a smelly NHS hospital among the plebs who used to vote for him, a multi-millionaire supporter flew him business class and all expenses paid to a clinic in the USA where he had laser surgery done at a cost of £25k paid by said American

    St Gerry now declares that he had to do this as the laser surgery wasn’t available in the UK – which may be a bit of a shock to all those who have had it

    Still isn’t it great that us little people have such leaders to look up to

    That little shit Miliband.
    After all i’ve done for him. He’d still be carrying Tony’s files to the shredder and cleaning Balls’ shoes if it wasn’t for me.

    The ungrateful turdfaced assbuket. Ohhhhh I’m so furious I’m going to…I’m going to…fly down there and smack him one.

    Right..lets see…flight goes at 7.45pm ..takes 1 hour + check in. And then I’ll need to get a taxi from London city..That’s another hour … and Crimewatch is on at 9pm.
    And that junior doctor series is on at 9pm too!!

    Ohhh..I can’t record both!..

    I’ll go tomorrow.

    or the next day..

    Definitely no later than Tuesday week……..probably.

    Operation Crossbow says:

    The BBC are of course bigging up the gurning Miliband’s speech.

    First question to a Tory (natch) was “What’s wrong with taxing the rich?”

    Of course the BBC don’t mean themselves when they say the rich, the BBC as we know encourage staff to avoid taxes where possible.

    Then we get some gormless beeboid spouting on about how well received Red Ed’s speech was, failing to point out that the 50p tax rate was only introduced right at the end of the last Liebore government.

      The BBC do encourage staff to avoid tax. They also encourage prosecution of those who do not pay the TV tax, ahem, License fee.

    The only catch is their policies are total shit.

    Dave is worst than Gordon, discuss says:

    The only reason why Gordon is worst is because he signed Lisbon.

    The gap is not very wide though, but that act of treachery is pretty tough to beat.

      Catty Comment (Ms) says:

      AFTER he had been kicked out of office.

      He no longer had any authority to do so and his signature should be regarded as void and the Treaty inapplicable to the UK.

    New UK Poor (middle class 2007) says:

    A Labour source said the mansion tax – long a favourite policy of Liberal Democrats – was expected to raise £2billion a year.
    That would fund a 10p rate on up to £1,000 of taxable income.
    Some 25 million basic rate payers would be up to £100 better off as a result, the source said.

    Wow, £100, what each year?. Well that will buy so much. Thanks Eds, mo.ngers.

    It must be rotten for the dysfunctional looney and Balls and Miliband minimus’s mentor to find out at his time of life that he’s been barking up the wrong trees since birth and is now a discredited apology for a money grabbing MP spelt shithouse. Well, I don’t give a flying fuck. He’s the ultimate blot on my entire life and but for him I would have lots more money now I am retired. I wish him everything nasty that could ever happen to him and I sincerely hope it seriously fucking hurts the bastard.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
