Read Guido’s Column in The Sun Today

The Sun is #1 for politics on Sundays. In Guido’s column today you can find out:

  • Which LibDem has been defending Lord Rennard?
  • Why should Jo Swinson know all about workplace cover-ups?
  • Why ‘bute’ is the least of our equine worries.
  • What MPs really think about the Civil Service.
  • How Chris Huhne’s moment of truth has been memorialised forever.

The column isn’t online, so get down the newsagents and read it today for only 50p…

    Tits & footie whilst the country slides down the crapper.

    The Right Honourable George Osborne says:

    I think we’ve got a very clear message, a loud and clear message that Britain cannot let up in dealing with its debts, dealing with its problems, cannot let up in making sure that Britain can pay its way in the world.

    The country has been in the crapper since 1945.

    Magic magnificent Maggie Thatcher tried to drag us out over the rim of the bowl in the 80s, but she was stabbed in the back by traitors and we slid back down into the shit.

    EU Watch says:

    The Dutch government are calling for an end to mass immigration from !slamic countries, and activists show up yelling racist:


    How can you be racist towards a religion ? And why such an irrational reaction to sensible immigration police ?

    Is Europe really a continent of mongs, or do all the countries have a common problem.

  10. 10
    Operation Crossbow says:

    Yes it’s called the left. Here in the UK it’s the Guardian, the BBC, Nu Labia and the Unions. Oh and the Scots (who get little immigration) and those in the north.

    Problem is there is nothing you can do to stop it, I would seriously expect Islam to be the main religion of Europe and the UK within 50 years, probably less.

    No tits on a Sunday (unless Guido takes his shirt off) so not even worth it for that.

  13. 13
    Operation Crossbow says:

    The loss of our AAA rating shows that the media don’t get it. The BBC obsesses about mansion taxes that at MOST would bring in 1.7 billion and the 45p tax rate that also raises very little.

    We are borrowing 125 billion a year, we pay 40 billion a year in interest payments on our debt.

    We are totally fucked yet the left just can’t see that unless there are serious cuts to spending and not the crap the Tories are doing at the moment we are finished.

    Interesting that scrapping the TV tax would save the public TWICE what the so called mansion tax would raise. That would be a nice tax cut for all families and easy for the Tories to do.

    Bulgaria is the poorest country in the EU.

    If any Euromong can explain coherently how there is any economic benefit at all in letting people who have clearly demonstrated that they are incapable of economic development in their own country into the UK that would be much appreciated.

    Has someone in CCHQ found some brains and balls at last or was it Huhne’s revenge.

    Clegg is going to have to get his sorry video out again.

    Where does this leave Jo Swinson – all Libdems are equal as long as you are a drunk, liar or sexual deviant. All very animal farm.

    predictable,and outcomes realised,but still the “elites”,carried on,on their
    path of errors,without listening to any opposed view..The scale of the “rip-off”,
    created by the banks,the way the peoples money has been used,in bailouts etc
    ,is immoral,and people are suffering as a consequence…..Immigration,avoidable,EU,unnecessary,but no,the elites carry on with more of the same,putting off the day of reckoning..Sunday rant!!!!!

    Clegg still wittering on about the Mansion Tax – for all those smug mongs out there who think it won’t affect them a history lesson

    Harold Wilson introduced stamp duty circa 1972 and said it would be applied to houses worth £40k or more and only affect the very very rich and now look at it; every house sold in the South East has to pay it plus many many more around the country. This is exactly what will happen with a mansion tax.

    The German Federal elections are coming up later this year, about September, so it is interesting that the CDU are taking this line.

    Guess they need to distract the opposition from the more obvious problems which exist in the German food chain with dioxin contamination, the poor of Europe turning their cities into Ghetto’s, and the ECB imminently about to drain the Bundesbank reserves in an attempt to keep the failed Euro afloat.

    They likely still have exposure to Spain / !taly, so today’s !talian election and the protests in Spain should keep them on their toes. The poor who may ending up this $hit food may well be the Germans.

    There was an expression used some years back in USA, dust to dust, meaning you have to take into account the affects of any project from start to finish, wind turbines can be huge structures 300 ft tall, built of steel which has been smelted from conventional power sources, tons of concrete used in each one, access for each one, roads etc, damage to environment, peat bogs, chopped up bird life, noise pollution, ugly vistas, not in a concentrated area but now all over the place. They are a fraud and a scam but a nice big earner for landowners and certain politicians and pundits that have jumped on the green band wagon. Can somebody remind me what percentage of our electricity is now produced by wind turbines in this country?, after billions spent, on a good day when it is not too calm or too windy… 2% ?

However the point of India (<4% of aid spending) is over-used and a flaming obvious bribe. The point of the BBC is actually to impartially educate (not just entertain). Unfortunately with their dumbed-down mainstream broadcasts they singularly fail to bring people up even to the standards of their radio broadcasts and should I agree forfeit the substantial bills we pay to them. Also the housing budget, simply evict expensive housing claimants even more from expensive areas and save another 10BN and to hell with the BBC screaming but people are being evicted from Chelsea/Hackney/Hammersmith/Sale/Solihull or any other semi-expensive areas you care to name.

    This is interesting debate from 1985:


    Apparently one member of the house, G3offrey D!ckens, declared that he had been put on a hit list.

    The dossier he had compiled and handed to then Home Secretary Le0n Br!ttan, is still being looked for. The second copy was destroyed by Dickens’ family a couple of years after his death in 1995 as they considered it too hot to have in the home.

    It is strange that PIE was not banned after D!ckens had raised concerns in 1981. He was quite vocal in the house about a ring. Curry recently admitted that she had knowledge that there was a cover up.

    That was when he raised questions about Sir P3ter H@ymans involvement. H@yman was British High Commissioner to Canada in the 70s, and worked for M!6.

    Dickens’ questions were concerning national security implications in relation to H@yman being compromised as a blackmail target, as well as H@ymans involvement with p3d0ph!lia.

    This is what Wats0n is quite animated about as it is connected with a certain guesthouse. There is a Labour member involved in those allegations among others. The individual who ran the guesthouse is currently attempting to flee to the US.

    Who Want's Some! says:

    All the comments are on the right track, our elite can’t and won’t face up to reality because to do so means they have to change the plan and if they change the plan they’re out of a job. Every government we’ve had for the last 50 years has set out to expand the size and scope of the state. The final dream project is the US of Europe, it the the long term goal of the elite that has been at the centre of all they do. It is the very substance of the political elites existence. But reality can’t be avoided, the finance sector was allowed to operate in a criminal way and so long as the ponzi kept being topped up all looked well and the politicians could strut about claiming the wisdom of their light touch. That’s all turned to shit, but our elite have no other plan, grow the state, merge into the super state, control and regulate every aspect of the citizens life.

    Anyone not locked into this plan can see at once what needs to be done. Real substantive cuts across the board, a disengagement from grand plans aboard, an honest statement that the days of unlimited NHS treatment, open ended free education and unlimited welfare is over. The good news would be real control of our borders and who is allowed to be a citizen, our citizens would have a new social contract with the state that would see them keep much more of their earnings with much lower tax, business would be supported to develop British growth and companies investing would be rewarded. Citizens would still have access the free health and education, but it would be capped and set against clear responsibilities. There would be greater use of private insurance to top up the states contingency welfare provision. If you’re not a citizen then you don’t get any state aid at all. Mass immigration would end.

    We’d be a ‘poorer’ in many material ways, but as anyone who’s been bankrupt will tell you, being free of debt means actually being free to live again. Our elite don’t want you free, they want you in hock and in awe to them. It will be a long struggle.

    Sources close to Clarke have suggested that he is a member of the infamous dining society.

    One student, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “I can confirm that Orme Clarke told me about his Bullingdon Club initiations.”

    The student also backed up reports of initiations last year, saying: “He described them as involving him having to burn a £50 note in front of a tramp.”

    The mobile phone companies do not receive massive public subsidy, and the phone masts perform a service which is useful.

    The phone masts are also not so densely packed (except in city areas), in need of so much supporting infrastructure, do not kill off birds or wreck the landscape so much.

    A building / landowner would not get anywhere near the amount for having one sited on their land as is being made from the useless windmills.

His boss is a well known advocate of P!E, and he has not spoken out against p3d0ph!lia as such, but certainly has been using it as basis to smear and bolster the objectives he set out from phone hacking.

    He has a ‘source’ who blogs directly to him, and he was involved in the setting up of Exar0 with the ex Guardian reporters. The whole modus operandi is very reminiscent of the operation run to discredit the Major government in the 90s.

    Iver feeling that Andy Burnham and other Labour-Cooperative Party cronies are actually in league with BBC News e.g. George Alagiah and Huw Edwards and they should report on the positive measures as they did under Brown’s time in the office. Or is it just that BBC1 has a lot of fun with the Labour front bench. For the record: Denham is never Brill nor are Gayhurst and Fingest pet names to be used for the Labour front bench. Wooburn is strictly out of the question.

    The chance of reaching any form of “Newton Blossomville” or “Woughton” under the present BBC rule are next to zero.

    Osborne stated it was crucial the the UK AAA status must be retained for our recovery and spent billions propping it up. Now that it is gone he sent his sidekick Beaker from the Muppets, Danny Alexander to say it didn’t really matter. So all those billions were wasted and the recovery is not happening as Osborne’s policies have failed. He will not change them due to party dogma trumping common sense

  327. 327
    Casual Observer says:

    If it can’t run without subsidy it probably shouldn’t.

    The big cock up has been shale gas development, and new oil fields being brought on line. As well as the generators only have a life 1/3 what they were meant to be meaning the unit cost of power produced by these things is significantly higher than what was sold.

    Wholesale price of energy, particularly gas, is set to come down soon.

    Irrespective of that, the windmills generate virtually no power. Nuke plants would have been a much greener, cheaper and practical investment, irrespective of what the eco mongs say.

    The QE money has been spent keeping yield down by buying debt and stashing it in the Bo.E

    No real money has been wasted, but if only new debt has been purchased and there has been no effort to buy back existing debt in the market, you can see that the government has been running a very sneaky financing scheme indeed.

    That the markets will likely punish.

    The downgrade will undo the work to control the cost of the existing debt. It will be sterling which gets hit hardest, and that will trigger a domestic inflation problem.

  334. 334
    Casual Observer says:

    Europe is not out of the woods by any means yet. And the US is also looking quite shaky.

    The big problem was transferring private sector debt of the banks over to the public sector. That should not have been done.

    Osborne did comprehensively screw up the previous budget as well. About 90% of it was reversed out.

    External risks, primarily Europe, are the main cause of problems right now, and the UK is not alone in having to deal with this problem. Remaining in the EU is an issue as it is preventing UK having free trade with other parts of the world that can afford to buy our produce.

    EU quotas on wheat etc. also screwed up UK last year. Which is another problem still unfolding: Our potato harvest was a bit poor thanks to the rain, and we have not got enough wheat at a time when global prices are going up due to poor harvests in the US.

    Europe is at the root of most of the UKs direct problems here. It is about time that issue was removed from the equation.

At least people from Runcorn work out which is better than can be said for much of the lazy south.

    Casual Observer says:

    Austerity was advised by the !MF.

    The !MF have since revealed that they got a key economic figure used in their model to determine that advice wrong. Hence the complete shambles across EU and UK.

    They would not have got that wrong by mistake, and governments implementing would have checked the figures, yet for some reason proceeded.

    Bulk of UK national debt not paid off was acquired under previous Labour government.

    Speculation. To date Pistorius has made no full defence story known. His defence may well be that someone banged her with a bat round (who knows who, friends, acquaintances, old enemies/lovers) and then he just sort of went after him/her with a gun. Let’s hold one’s ammo literally. A good idea of a murder is something like the Moors Murderers, killing of small children. Or of course the Iain Huntley or Levi Bellfield having been more recent murderers. It is fortunately a relatively uncommon word in this country. In a few U.S., Russian and Syrian cities murder is more of a fact of life alas.

  338. 338
    M'lud says:

    FYI there have been many borderline cases of murder (the lesser version with less direct intention, or a partial defence succeeding being known as manslaughter). It is in a surprisingly large minority of cases explained to a jury what that obscure degree of intention is, because our law sensibly decides this on a patchwork quilt of unlawful killing previous Appeal Cases established over the centuries. Even now perhaps on average one appeal a year will succeed arguing to the senior “Appeal Judges” that a murder was not murder. So the question is actually often sensible.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
