    I think the prize is interesting as there won’t be an eu soon. When the German people realise they are going to have to bail out everyone except the UK by paying massive tax increases then the whole thing will fall apart. Yes, yes, yes!

    Tony Blair (godfather to one of Murdoch's kids) says:

    I think everyone associated with Murdoch should go to jail. They shouldn’t be allowed to get away with what they did, from 1997 to 2010. What was the Conservative government doing during that time? Were they complicit? Probably.

    Legal Beagle says:

    On a point of detail, did Huhne not actually receive a sentence of 9 months – which was then discounted automatically by 10% for the guilty plea – rather than receiving a sentence of 8 months (as Hecate Pryce did)?

    I give the EU another 5 years, max. says:

    It had better fall apart quickly, because every day it doesn’t is costing us £53 million.

    Cameron (and Clegg and Miliband) are the sort of twats who’d take out life-time membership of a gym that’s holding a closing-down sale.

    Now I regret Huhne never became Lib Dem leader. We’d have had the popcorn worthy spectacle of seeing a deputy PM forced to resign and then go to prison.

    Le Monde correspondent says:

    Interesting background on how the Murdoch Times newspapers get their information…and then try to buy their way out of trouble

    wiki
    In 2012, it was revealed that Patrick Foster, then a reporter at The Times, had used computer hacking in order to establish Richard Horton’s identity.[8] [9] It was subsequently reported that Horton intends to sue The Times for damages.[10]
    In October 2012, the Times settled with Horton for £42,500 plus costs.[11]

    On 29 August 2012 the police arrested Patrick Foster as part of Scotland Yard’s Operation Tuleta investigation into computer hacking.”

    argy given the v sign, will camoron send charity donations says:

    I think everyone one who was a member of Liebour between 1997 and 2010 should go to jail and everyone who voted for Liebour in 1997 and 2010 should be made to pay 20% extra tax to cover the damage they did by voting in Liebour, but we know like Murdoch and the rest of the establishment nothing will happen.

    Is there any connection beteen the Murdoch journalists going to jail and the EU?

    Your logic seems to have deserted you

    Of perhaps too much of the white stuff this morning?

    PS Or do you think in your paranoia that Scotland Yard is run by the EU as well?

    Fuck it says:

    The BBC were delighted this morning that the BIGGEST recruiter at the moment is the public sector, yes folks ‘change managers’ and ‘diversity officers’ are being recruited in large numbers again.

    Other than the armed forces I can’t think of any large scale cuts taking place. Did I sleep through those “evil Tory cuts?”

    Bill Quango MP says:

    Gordon kept inflation away with his basket of

    78 rpm records
    Black and white tv licence
    Spinning Jenny’s
    Monocles
    Stovepipe hats
    Whalebone
    Fax machines
    Cassette tapes
    Bell bottom patched dungarees
    Guano

    Using this basket of goods inflation fell by 450% , while tractor production rose by a similar amount.

    BBC Update says:

    but we think that it is a disgrace that the police, the NHS, numerous childrens’ homes and Thatcher allowed the beast to get away with what he did.

    She was rather the instrument of her own destruction.
    If she had kept quiet no one would have ever known.

    She wanted vengeance. And she achieved it.

    This is an interesting idea that Labour voters should pay more tax to make up for Ruin McBroons waste. The problem is that most of them are spongers or wefare addicts so would not have any spare money after buying drugs, fags and booze.

    We have it on good authority that Jimmy Savile was a Tory Minister in the Thatcher Government, which explains everything.

    Legal Beagle seeking justice at all levels says:

    Indeed it is 8.1. My point is that the (gross) sentence was in fact 9 months, and that the sentence was then discounted by the Judge. So, “the sentence” was 9 months, even though Huhne will only serve 90% of it because of the discount. Therefore, it is wrong to say Huhne’s sentence was 8 months, but right to say that he will only serve 8 months of it. The sentence must have been 9 months otherwise there was nothing against which to apply the discount of 10%. Therefore Guido is giving his book to the wrong person; which, in its own way, is a perversion of the course of justice all of its own.

    In law: 9 months less 10% = 8 months.

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.”
