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.

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.

    Matilda says:

    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.

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.”
