Hunt Fires SpAd After Just Six Months

Guido understands that Jeremy Hunt has given his SpAd Sam Talbot-Rice, who only joined him in October 2012, the  heave-ho. Movements were afoot on Friday and now an Ed Jones is being drafted in to fill the gap. Guido believes he is a financial PR with a non-health background.

Sue Beeby will be on maternity leave again soon, but Guido is assured there will not be a return for Adam Smith…

      Population replacement is still a crime against humanity, according to the UN says:

      The majority of school aged, around 56% in London, are non-white.

      When they get older and start having children, scrub the ‘when they get older’ bit, they will outbreed natives by, on average, 3 to 1, so in the next generation, certainly long before 2031. The native British will be a minority in our own capital.

      Damn right. Nobody in my cabin got a wink of sleep on a recent over-nighter from Singapore to LHR thanks to some spoilt 2 year old and its fawning-my-lovely-unique-little-poppet-can-do-no-wrong mother. My once 2 year old would have been given something to cry for if he had done that. All the kid needed was a good clip round the ear and and an instruction of no more noise until we land. There should be a separate soundproofed cabin right at the back where these pests can yell their little heads off without disturbing people who have paid a lot of money for some comfort on a long flight. I am told that cabin staff have been instructed not to chastise parents who allow their brats to scream all night.

          A couple of years ago I went to the hospital to see a close relative who was undergoing a very serious operation. Just as I arrived I was informed that operation had been a success and the patient was now in the recovery room and would be moved into the the ICU where I could visit for a couple of minutes.

          Meanwhile in the corridor just outside the ICU door were a couple of 5 year olds who were running about and screaming at each other, balefully watched by a doting father.

          In my most polite voice I asked him very nicely to please control his kids as this was a hospital and not a playground and that there were seriously ill people just the other side of the door.

          He looked at me sadly and just said: “How can I do that?”

          I told him that if he wouldn’t or couldn’t do it, I would do it for him. No reaction, so in my very best harridan headmistressy voice, I pointed my finger at them and commanded the two brats to sit down, be quiet and that I did not want to hear another peep out of them until it was time to go home. I don’t think either of them had ever been spoken to like before in their entire lives, but they immediately became silent and retired to the sofa in the corner – and made no more noise.

          The father just looked me and then said: “How did you do that?”

          Some people really should not be allowed to breed.
