Edwina Curries Favour

Rule number one when wading into a debate on welfare, don’t do this:



  1. 1
    Ian Dunderhead Simpkins says:

    Let them eat cake !

      Oliver Twist says:

      We can’t afford cake after we bought our sky package tv, ciggies, computer games, money for the fruit machines and scratch cards. We just have enough left for mouldy sausages and gin.

        How much did the BBC pay Mrs Huhne (aka Pryce) for her repeated appearances on Radio 4 as an Expert on the Greek economy, beofre her diary was filled with researching conditions in Her Majesty’s Prisons


  2. 2
    Who in their right mind aspires to be a scabby old socialist bag.? says:

    Curry is a prize pig at the trough. I doubt her weekly manicure costs less than £50.


  3. 3
    Baroness Scotland says:

    And ? People get paid for interviews . She didn’t say she wanted to live on 53 quid a week .

    53 quid a week is a fortune when your house is paid for and you have time to do a bit on the side . It is an infinite hourly rate.

      Who gets this £53 a week anyway ? is this for a single person ? i understand its after rent and other bills have been paid so not so difficult to do.

    Go Johnny go says:

    Edwina, another Tory that’s out of touch with the real world.

    Roll on 2015 ツ

      Just Saying. says:

      Not so out of touch as she asked for BBC for £500 and knew they would refuse.
      More savvy than the loony lefties in the BBC and Westminster.

    ReefKnot says:

    I was surprised to read the headline ‘Currie charges £500′. You would have to pay me £500, and give me a free paper bag.

      She should be chained in Trafalgar Square for public use, without charge.

      Tay King-dePisse says:

      “…[A] free paper bag.”

      For you, or for her?
      I’ve heard the same thought expressed as “having to put the Union flag over her face, and do it for Queen and Country.”

      John Major says:

      i’d do her (again) for £500.


  6. 7
    Hargaret Modge, Labour MP and Hypocritical serial long term aggressive Tax Avoider + expenses thief says:

    I think IDS should do it for a year…if Tony Money Bags War Dead Straight Kinda Guy Bliar and the Milli-millionaire twins do it as well.

    We’re obviously all in this together right? Are they refusing then?

      Divide my conkers says:

      Yeah. Exactly but the thicko socialists think Miliband is poor cos he works for a charity. Like the sad cases in the Oxfam book shop.


  7. 8
    Divide my conkers says:

    That woman is just awful.


  8. 10
    Divide my conkers says:

    How much a day can a politician claim on expenses. Bet its more than £50 for most of them.


  9. 11
    John Major says:

    Stupid bint

    I don’t see why people shouldn’t ask to be paid for appearing on the likes of Channel 5 and Sky. These are commercial organisations, why should they get their materials for nothing?

    Go for it Edwina … its worth a TV programme and the your lecture fee can be upped …

    I wonder how much BBC 5 live paid her this weekend she’s been on every day almost


  13. 20

    She is a nasty Tory, one of many, but why does this site attract more than its fair share of women hating inadequates?


  14. 21
    Dave P says:

    Don’t do what? Make stupid remarks like Nick Frost – or ask to be paid for appearing? She, and IDS, and all others have said they COULD – obviously to all but the loony left swamp life this doesn’t mean ‘and carry on business as a Cabinet Minister, TV pundit, Journalist etc etc’. By definition and by new measures support they are working so don’t have to get by on £53.

      John Humphry's Ego is bigger than the universe says:

      I earn far more than a Cabinet Minister and got a bulls eye with getting IDS to answer my stupid question. I will be on target bonus in time for the summer recess where I hope to join Pretty Polly in Tuscany. Campari anyone?


  15. 25
    I will be VOTING UKIP.ORG says:

    Nothing so extravagant as a very large Curr*y take away……… !!!


  16. 26
    Calm Down Dear its Only a Commercial the Spirit of Michael Winner says:

    £53 would not even buy an average bottle of plonk in my day , let alone a nuvo vintage from the new world which might be half drinkable………

    but certainly not acceptable @ the FCO, little Wil*lie, For*eign Sec*retary
    would make sure of that !! with a stiff memo written on parchment with there FCO quill pens…… and all made in Chi*na….

    M says:

    If ALL MPs want to set a good example they should try and survive on EXPENCES of
    £53 per week .
    That would save the country millions no !

    Fast Walking Frankie says:

    It’s easy,4 meals a day from a freezer shop at a quid a time is £28,plus teabags bread and cakes,milk etc .
    I can live on that without luxuries assuming all utilities are paid which is what I think it means.
    Poor is when you cannot feed,not when you don’t have enough to get bladdered or spaced on weed.
    Food stamps should be the norm,or get a job.

    Why would anybody want the opinion of a two faced adulterous has been on anything except how to cheat and lie.
