Speccie Say NO
Downing Street Say Guido is a “Relevant Publisher”

The Spectator have made up their mind on state regulation. Here is tomorrow’s cover:

Think that’s pretty clear…

Downing Street has cleared up yesterday’s confusion about whether or not Guido will fall under the Charter:

“No newspaper or blogger would be forced to join the regulator, the Royal Charter system is a system of incentivisation. However, those ‘relevant publishers’ that choose not to join the regulator would be subject to costs and could be subject to exemplary damages if taken to court. ‘Relevant publishers’ are specifically defined and could include blog sites that are written by multiple authors, have editorial control and are published in the course of business.”

It goes without saying that it’s a “no” from Guido too…

    Whilst this blog is hosted on foreign servers, if you were to be sued how would you stand as far as your personal assets in this country? i Assume Guido/harry own assets of one variety or another in this country? so could this law put them at risk if suckedoffhugh&co were to sue?

        They never deserted the Working Class, they were never interest in the Working Class. If Tories are posh boys who are more concerned by business than humanity then the Labour are posh boys who never got to run the family business and so needed a “constituency” to exercise their power upon. They have innate issues about proving themselves and a sense of entitlement. Anybody who tells them they are wrong needs to be silenced and we are seeing that with these move against the press. Socialism is always pushed by those rich enough not to endure the results of any of their policies. The difference with today’s Labour Party is that they have realised they can have all that but without the trouble of listening, or pretending to listen, to the needs of the Working Class or the poor.

      Actually they are scenting complete victory. It is why they have become so arrogant and their online trolls so nasty. The left in Britain have transcended from being one viewpoint in a plurality of politics to a neo-fascist, national socialist “movement” – Blair’s New Labour party as “nothing less than the political wing of the British people as a whole” and now being promoted by Miliband as his “one nation”. The whole collective is moving towards establishing a de facto single party state with the sham of political plurality confined to quaint but utterly meaningless theatrics in the Houses of Parliament while the real deals get agreed in Brussels or behind closed doors by the new, rich and powerful “third estate”.

      It is why anyone who disagrees with them is demonised. It is why their quangos and fake charities and lobby groups can intimidate and bully their way to power as we have just seen. And behind most of it is Common Purpose who have put one over the British people and imposed a cultural revolution of such devastating subtlety and lack of opposition that Mao could only have dreamed of.

      And muppets like “Timoof” who scoff at the idea of such conspiracy being far-fetched are their useful idiots, their fools and slaves who will help to bring about a one party state of mind here. And those who still resist it all, even moderates and the right of centre, will soon be branded “extremists”, marginalised from debate and monitored by the new state police.

        Yes I hear what you are saying; well put by the way. My thinking is more that some of the wiser elements of the Left know that the proverbial man (or woman) on the street aren’t agreeing with them (or Cons or LibDums). They may not express themselves in the same terms and words as 3rd year politics student. Bu there are concerns. To dismiss the majority as X Factor watching sheeple is the height of vanity. There is a disconnect between politics and the people. A vacuum. A gulf. And to use that hackneyed phrase nature abhors a vacuum. Something will fill it. If the Left look back in their history books they will see what happens to tiny minorities who ignore the majority. The politicians have got to understand that if the majority don’t engage in the political process it isn’t the majority who are at fault. The disengagement invalidates the political process as it is now. My fear is that we do find ourselves late next year with a police forces and benefits system at a breaking point because of influx from the east. If the streets do turn lawless something will happen to galvanise the natives. If anything that is the biggest wrong with all this press nonsense. Rather like gay marriage it is a non-issue. Europe on the brink and we have actors and the rich dictating politics in an office in the Palace of Westminster.

          I think we are coming to a junction in the road.One way is rapid decline, move towards one party state rule and extensive and frequents outbreaks of violence : the other requires the British people to regain their resilience , shake off their apathy and regain a level of emotional maturity so they take responsibility for themselves.

          In fact, the cultural Left is very fragile: they are a paper tiger. The problem no Liberal ( in the true sense ) or Tory with common sense, broad experience of life and a little courage has challenged them to honest and open debate .
          The Cultural Left has proven it is incapable of producing wealth, incapable of producing a numerate and techically competent workforce with the skills to compete in the 21st Century and it has imposed gagging orders on the NHS and allowed astate of fear to develop .It has spent money but not spent wisely and allowed immigration to reduce the wages of the unskilled and semi-skilled and allowed welfare costs to balloon.

          In fact the unskilled and semi-skilled have done worse under Labour than those working in smoke stack and overmanned nationalised industries under the Tories.

As long on election day somebody turns out and there is a vote that is all they care about.

    Have you been offended by untruthful or misleading stories in the press, on twitter or facebook? Has your health, welfare or family life suffered at the hands of bloggers like Guido Fawkes? If so, new government legislation means that you may be entitled to significant amounts of compensation.

    Our experienced claims handlers will deal with everything and EVERY penny that you are awarded by the People’s Confiscation Committee on Press Control, YOU KEEP. Our costs are paid by the organisations who, between us, we choose to finger.

    Mr G from Chelsea was awarded over £1 million when a National Newspaper accused him of an indecent act in a car whilst abroad. Mr G was totally innocent, the act being performed by his passenger was one of kindness – treating an injury, Mr G being in pain, having caught his gentleman’s relish in his zipper.

    We were able to obtain over £2 million compensation for Mr M, an elderly gentleman living in poverty in Monaco. Mr M had absent-mindedly walked into the wrong apartment, one where it transpired an educational video on human anatomy was being filmed. Mr M had agreed to help with a close-up when the press barged in.

    Could you be entitled to similar amounts of compensation OR EVEN MORE? New government legislation means that you might – but you need to act now. Ring our claims hotline today to speak with one of our experienced claims handlers and find out just how much you are entitled to.

    Don’t say it if you don’t mean it. No trying to evade the controls by publishing accurate, balanced and well researched stories. It’s not what we come here for.

    Am sure it’s been said somewhere on here over the last few days, but one would suspect that this charter thingie has been written specifically with Guido in the crosshairs.

    Good for you for saying no.

    in terms of moderation this is one of the very few places where free expression unfettered for the most part go on. i have had stuff chopped from time to time and whilst it is fucking annoying i do respect the fact that collective el guido most likely has very sound reason for cutting tings or maybe not or maybe both if and/or when they feel like it or not.

    conliblab fuckers getting paid for commenting stand out like a fucking sore thumb btw. most of us have seen through the whole political ping pong shite and we fucking hate you.

    It’s clear that only organised violent action will attain our aims. I have contacted the EDL on the premise that they are very pro free speech and will probably be glad to get hold of reasonable means to achieve their aims, ie, weaponry.

    The communist in No. 10 must be ejected along with the marxist horde he leads in parliament – as for LieBore and the FibDUMS, they are clearly traitors to this country, and any reasonable person would be persuaded that the return of the death penalty for their treasonous acts is a just reward for their attempts to turn us into North Korea.

    No from Save Our Community Healthcare Services (sochs.org.uk) too, and if they want to sue the site when we disclose the unlawful spin-off of Community Healthcare Services by NHS Kirklees management to their buddies, who then took high paying jobs at the Social Enterprise, aided by the Strategic Health Authority and DoH who all chose to ignore procurement law and statutory obligations to consult, which has now backfired as the company is making nurses redundant, then they are always free to get their lawyers to send a letter (though not the ones they first went to as they went into administration and were sold on).

    But at the same time a tinkerer with the economy. So what does that make him? A worthless overspender and totally over-excited minister with no real stimulation in the past.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
