Read Guido’s Column in The Sun Today

There are 24 political stories in the Sun today, including an exclusive revealing how Ed Balls is still wasting taxpayers’ money in opposition. Guido shares a page with an article on the budget from George Osborne, naturally Guido’s column is to the right of the Chancellor. In the column;

  • Treasury deputy Danny Alexander is getting his excuses in early.
  • Liam Fox to Brussels?
  • LibDem MEPs defy Clegg.
  • Red Ken isn’t so opposed to privatisation after all. Find out what he has in common with Dave: you’ll Harley believe it!
  • Seb Coe looks like he is running for office.
  • How Pickles left trade unionists shivering in the cold.
  • The MPs who went on a Jamaica junket as we shiver.
  • The not so independent inquiry into Rennard.
  • Who was Chuka Umunna’s red carpet date?

All for just 50p…


  1. 1

    For those co-conspirators interested in the facts of this massive scandal

    It is interesting to read the timeline of this

    It is not surprising that Guido has been hired

    Most of the other Sun journalists seem to have been a r r e s t e d and/or charged!

    “UK to help troops hit by Cyprus levy”

    So what is Osborne’s game?

    Has he been told that UK troops will not be hit by the levy, and is making an announcement he knows he will not need to honour, just to look good?

    Or has he idiotically pre-empted the Cypriot Government, allowing them to levy our troop’s savings, knowing that the UK (taxpayer) will pick up the cost?

    Either way Osborne is looking like a bit of a shit.

    It is not the job of the UK government to financially reimburse its citizens ripped off by another state. It is the job of the British government to obtain from the offending State (The EU) all the monies robbed and to return it to those who it rightfully is.

    In other words the EURO ZONE should pay and not the UK taxpayer.

    Am no fan of Anjem or his and his followers beliefs, but it is good that the Sun have published his side of the story. That makes for balanced reporting, more so than the BBC.

    Hate crimes are political crimes which should be struck from the statutes.

    From what he says in the article though it sounds like there has been a criminal conspiracy ongoing involving Dart and 2 others to commit acts of murder. That should be prosecuted.

    The ‘hate crimes’ though are an affront to free society even being described in such terms. There is no problem with hating something, as there should not be with loving either.

    Acting on those impulses, or planning to, and causing actual physical harm is what should not be tolerated. What people think is fine.

    Some of the politicians are corrupt, which enables them to be coerced.

    That corruption in the Eurozone is the cause of the downturn is false.

    Other nations which are fairing much better are more corrupt.

    The Eurozone is dragging down world trade as it is not stepping into the breach left open by the US.

    This is primarily a massive failure of policy. The principal failure was establishment of a monetary union absent fiscal / political union, combined with a deeply flawed attempt to forge a federal union with demos or constitution.

    Not corrupt politicians, just totally flawed ideology.

    Everyone involved in this is to blame.

    Far from being victims of the press, they (and Clarence Mitchell aka Gordon’s aid) used the press in their regular briefings from the Algarve. So much so were the press on their side that the press much to the frustration of ordinary people both in Portugal and the UK never once condemned them for leaving their kids alone while they went out on the piss every night.

    They did not become so called victims until the Portuguese plod made them official suspects and they did a runner from Portugal.

    And it all started under a Tory Gov't says:

    As with many Indian communities around the world, Southall is dominated by Punjabis and Gujaratis. From North and West India respectively, these were the first groups from the sub-continent to emigrate.

    Close to Heathrow airport and with work available at a tyre factory and a bakery, Southall was a natural place for people to settle when they arrived.

    Southall is primarily a South Asian residential district, sometimes known as “Little India”. In 1950, the first group of South Asians arrived in Southall, reputedly recruited to work in a local factory owned by a former British Indian Army officer. This South Asian population grew, due to the closeness of expanding employment opportunities such as London Heathrow Airport.

    Where are Tony Blair's expenses says:

    Along with almost everyone else in the country I can have no comprehension about how the Dowler’s must feel about losing their daughter but to use them as a Tojan Horse to bring in Press Regulation is repugnent.

    The facts of the case are

    1. Millie Dowler was killed by a career criminal who should have been in jail already but for our liberal approach to law breaking

    2. Millie’s phone was hacked and as a result the NoW has closed down with hundreds of job losses. The Dowlers have been paid a 6 figure sum in compensation.

    3. The journalists responsible are being prosecuted under existing laws and will hopefully end up in jail. The question needs to be asked is to why the original investigation into hacking was called off when the evidence appears to be so overwhelming, what did Blair and Campbell have to do with it.

    4. Due to the incompetence of Surrey Police the man convicted of kiling Millie went on to kill at least two more women.

    5. It wasn’t the NoW who gave Bob Dowler a hard time in the witness box it was a scumbag QC.

    6. The NoW did not delete Millie Dowler’s messages, as suggested by the Guardian, they were deleted automatically by the mobile phone company.

    7. The Levenson enquiry was initiated in a panic by Cameron in response to the Guradian lie and gues what, put a lawyer in charge of an inquiry and the solution will involve more laws – simples.

    EU Watch says:

    The actual impact to the smaller savers is a lot more than 6.75%

    People are overlooking the 20-25% tax that is going to be levied on interest.

    Savings rate in Cyprus is 1%: So that takes the effective savings rate down to .75%.

    Cyprus CPI ~ 1.6%, so real deposit rates in Cyprus will be: -0.85%

    It is not worth keeping a savings account at those rates, however junior bond holders will receive a 100% haircut (loss) as they are to be fully bailed-in.

    Many in Cyprus switched their savings into bonds in order to get a +ve real rate of interest, and are set to lose all in this deal.

    Net: A depositor with < EUR 100k in Cyprus is set to lose ~7.6% on their deposits this year, variable upwards if inflation rises again. (Feb 2012, CPI in Cyprus was ~3.1%)

    Corporation tax is to be raised by 2.5% which will likely stimulate some price inflation as businesses pass on that cost.

    Point of Information says:

    Oh, and they covered up the death as they panicked and were more worried about their own situation than that of their children.

    This aspect of their psychology is born out by the events on the night in question alone, as well as the way they reacted afterwards.

    Going against police advice in releasing photos early is a big no no in abduction cases as it will increase significantly the chance of the child being killed.

    One twist: In the time between the abduction report, and the car with trace DNA being hired, where was the body stored ? This implies third party involvement, unless they had identified already very good hiding place. The former is more credible.

    EU Watch says:

    There are several reasons for London to do this:

    i) The move is going to finish Cyprus as a financial center, less competition for London.
    ii) The government employees need to be kept sweet, as their presence out there is strategically valuable.
    iii) The overall bailout for Cyprus is probably more valuable to London which likely stands to lose big if Cyprus defaults.

    They should be looking out for all UK interests though. And they should have had advance warning of what was going on and advised UK nationals to transfer their accounts offshore from Cyprus.

    The best that can be made of this is that despite EU membership, the UK had no knowledge that this particular decision was going to be made.

    Time to leave.

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
