Hacked Off Say Thanks to Secret Donors

You have to hand it to Brian Cathcart. Hacked Off’s self-styled nutty professor has summed up their secret donor dilemma in a typically self-important post this lunchtime:

“We do not regret accepting money to fund our activities from some people who did not want their donations made public. We understand and respect their desire to avoid the kind of hostile treatment that has been dished out to people who openly criticise the press, and we are grateful to them for their generosity. We are grateful too, to the very many generous people who have given money openly. We have been open from the outset about our funding.”

In other words thank you to the Billionaire Russian oligarchs, Gatsby-like Labour Lords and world-famous aristocrats that have donated. Despite Cathcart’s claim that they “have been open from the outset about our funding”, you only know their names thanks to Guido…

    Had a good laugh last night cooking up this new “hard line” on immigration. Does anybody actually believe this bollocks I spout out?

    We only really want to know who the ‘secret donors’ are so as we don’t have to read about their piss weak creations when they’re hawking them next time they feel like they need some free publicity.
    You can’t have it both ways f**k-faces.

    Enough Already says:

    Cameron thinks that the public oppose immigration because of the quality of the immigrants he lets in. Some do. But the real issue is simply one of numbers. We can’t fit any more people into our country. He should shut the door on new arrivals and remove all the illegals. It is a very simpletask, but one which he is not up to.

    Let's fill our country with self-replicating shitting machines says:

    There is clearly a plot by vermin such as Cable to replace the English middle class with Asiatics (as long as they’re not Moslems who hate people like Cable); this is to correspond with the prior policy of replacing the English working class with third worlders who are more criminal, thicker and lazier.

    CMD*DD’s real Masters the EUSSR, the ones that pull all the strings for the Lab*Lib*Cons, won’t allow him to stray to far from there enforced dictates before they give his lead a sharp tug & bring him back into line !!!

    We have seen what the EUSSR have & are doing to Cyprus & we will know
    what to expect once we are firmly in the cross-hairs of there sights.

    Fingers crossed that fate has decided the EUSSR House of Cards with its
    ponzi €uro currency will implode sooner rather than later.
    Which is what the FX’s are saying this afternoon…….!!!!!

    Plus some very large COSTS when its finally abandoned which of course
    the UK Tax Payers will have to pick Up !!!!

    Well done CMD something else to add to the EVER increasing national deficit
    but of course this wont bother you, as your’ll be in the Tax Free EUSSR Capital
    Brussels whooping it up at the tax payers expense like all the rest of your Eto*n Bull*ington Club fcu*king plo*nkers

    What a Joke says:

    Ah yes, double speak thrives – being open = open about not telling anyone what is going on……and the Prof has the cheek to say it? Of course he and his clique’s ‘open’ meeting with government and opposition before the vote went to Parliament was an equally wonderful thing.

    As he is a fan of democracy,perhaps he would allow an ‘open’ on-line vote so the rest of us could have our say?

    Thought not.

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.”
