Miriam Clegg is Friends With Nigella

According to LibDemVoice, Clegg’s wife Miriam Gonzalez Durantez and Nigella are friends. They knew each other before they did this video for The Stylist in 2011. Miriam wears the trousers in Chez Clegg and Guido suspects that Nick was on the receiving end of more than fleeting spousal abuse for his less than trenchant line on Saatchi’s throttling of her friend…

    Sadly these things are cyclical. For many years Nigella’s father was regularly abused by a female neighbour until he found the courage to leave.

    So this is the Radio Times website? says:

    Saw 10 minutes or so of Question Time for the first time since the Nasty Nick Circus debacle a few years ago. Is it always this bad? The old fool Dumblebore had lost control of the carefully selected lefty audience and he and the director were allowing shouting nutters to interrupt and be given airtime. Surely he must have a son to hand over the dynasty to. Russel Brand (!?) thinks the rich should pay more tax, unless they don’t like the government, in which case they shouldn’t have to pay any. Harperson thinks the financial crisis was caused because there aren’t enough wimmin in Banking (emale politicians have certainly proved themselves honest, after all), some hatchet-faced woman went off on one about the muzzies and the audience were allowed to howl her down so no point was made on either side. Boris looke dlike he had spent three hours having his hair styled to look “raffish” and, well, I turned off and tried to find “The Wright Way” on youtube.

    Just as well we women are in the kitchen. Men, for the most part, would starve if we didn’t cook! Or at the very best men would become obese and die early from eating junk food because they’re too lazy to do anything else.

    The feminist are having a great time attacking him over his answer when all he seemed to say was that he would like to know the facts before commented. Usually it is politicians getting hassle for making comments when they don’t know the facts.

    Rubber chicken says:

    As with so many crimes, the law does make it clear and there is abundant legislation to deal with all aspects of Domestic Violence.

    It all falls down when the perpetrators are brought to court.

    The judiciary have made it very clear that their sentencing ideology is not compatible with society attempting to root out and appropriately deal with criminals who engage in Domestic Violence.

    Time the government acted. Cameron actually promised minimum mandatory sentences for crimes as part of the Tory manifesto for 2010. Naturally, it’s not happened because Cameron is useless.

    Has it never occurred that the Cleggs might be good friends with both of them
    He’s hardly going to slag off someone he may have to face later is he ?
    The way to be a successful politician is to be able to never answer a direct question , and give a long drawn out answer that totally avoids the original question
    Unfortunately this is not a skill Clegg possesses , and come the next election Clegg will be lucky to find a job picking sprouts with his eastern european friends that he loves so much

    Of course bankers are greedy. They couldn’t do their jobs otherwise. You wouldn’t want a banker who thought that love of money was the root of all evil. (S)he’d be useless. What we need isn’t mystical, philanthropic bankers but competent ones. It is the massive, inexcusable bungling that shames them, as well as the regulators, central bankers, reporters and finance ministers who egged them on.

    The banking crisis of 2008 was the biggest cock-up since the Second World War and it was the result of crass incompetence, wishful thinking and stupidity, not greed.

    Legal Eagle says:

    If the DV issue goes the same way as it has over in places like the Canada and the US, but particularly Canada, the following goodies are in store.

    Boyfriend / Girlfriend are at a party, perhaps it is close to Christmas. Both are drunk, they have a little argument. The girlfriend is seen slapping her boyfriend, who of course does not respond. A concerned friend reports this to the police.

    Now: The police are compelled to take the report seriously, and the legislation forces them to arrest the girlfriend. She is then charged with assault.

    Now both parties explain that they were a little drunk, it is not a regular thing etc., and the police themselves do not really want to be wasting there time with this. But the problem is, the decision to prosecute is now in the hands of the Crown, and they see a case which they are duty bound to pursue. So they do.

    In the mean time the girlfriend now has to go to the expense of securing a lawyer, arrange bail variation so as she can spend time with her boyfriend over the festive period (as there was a mandatory restraining order imposed shortly after her arrest) and now only has two choices: Go to trial, or seek plea bargain.

    This of course is putting a strain on the relationship as the general perception is that the two can no longer be together as a repeat of the incident or a subsequent report would all but guarantee a custodial sentence for her. The Crown’s are still convinced that the boyfriend is really the violent one despite the case so are really looking for any way to get at him. This they tried with their victim witness support, but failed.

    Now: The reason why the case cannot collapse is because the person who reported the incident, quite honestly and rightly, is sticking with their story. Which means that the option of collapsing because the victim-witness (boyfriend if he had reported it) is unable to be a hostile witness and deny, as the actual witness is ‘doing the right thing’.

    In the mean time, this has cost the girlfriend her job after word got back to her employer, and she had to miss days whilst seeking bail following her initial arrest. Which was at her place of work.

    That is some of the future here: Is it right ? Maybe in some instances, but on the whole given the impact this has across the board it can be seen that a simple situation like this creates more harm to more people than if the police were given discretion to issue a warning and leave at that.

    If you are living in an area with the new DV schemes in the UK and wish to get a head start on divorce with a partner, constructing a DV claim is a very good way to do this under the new law. Just don’t get caught out in the lie, and if it isn’t a lie make sure you act first and have a couple of medical reports to back you up. The system is still geared against men.

    For the record: Males are more likely to murder their partners – those homicide rates are real. Females are more likely to hire or coerce someone to kill theirs. The female killing men homicide rates are about equal if not a little more if the numbers of direct homicides and ‘contract’ killings are aggregated.

    Enjoy.

    Your Friendly Neighbourhood Guilt-Trip Monitoring Service says:

    The partially-taxpayer-funded Public Broadcasting System, America’s BBC-lite which subsists primarily on tax-advantageous foundation grants and corporate donations, and selling overpr!ced swag to its in-the-main Champagne Socialist viewers during “Beg Weeks,” presenting a report on how, according to a University study, being wealthier creates a false sense of “being better” than other people, not as a person, just more entitled to whatever life has in store:

    http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/business/jan-june13/makingsense_06-21.html

    It would be risible in its predictability and the motives for its being presented, but for the fact that it acknowledges that “even” Lefties fall prey to this attitude.

    Obviously, expiation on the part of the wealthy is necessary, in their view, and, “Your local PBS station DOES rely on contributions from viewers like you…”

    The really interesting aspect is that it is comparatively easy to come up with what might be an original thought. Of course, the internet does not contain all original thought but it has a great deal of what has been thought.

    The BBC were criticized for some TV series which they ran on BBC America and some of the local channels last year over the fact that the programs seemed to be designed to stimulate racial divides and even a degree of conflict.

    They presented some very stereotyped and somewhat exaggerated if not plain fictional portrayals of apparent inequalities in American inner cities with a slant on race.

    After seeing some of these myself, I would have to agree (knowing directly the locations presented and people there) that they were false, and on reflection seemed to want to stimulate at the very least a class division.

    Many in the US are aware of this which is why much of BBCs output is treated with skepticism and generally ignored.

    It is a shame that UK license fee payers money is wasted on such negative and unwarranted propaganda.

    In all seriousness, the proprietor of this blog is happy if people come here to view the comments for any reason, as those viewers are also exposed to Guido’s advertisers.

    What GF will not tell you, however, is that he is well-chuffed if the posters on here reflect a certain attitude which is a bit less superficial than the celebrity websites, but is much less numbingly earnest than many of the other political blogs. It shows that there is a public out there which will react to the doings of the Westminster Bubble crowd with the scepticism they so richly deserve and perpetually engender just by being what they are.

    Guido is glad if people from all over and from all backgrounds get to feel a certain proprietary interest in what’s going on in the halls of power and their echo chambers, and express that feeling using his blog. In a way his blog and the viewpoint he and his posters express can be likened to that of a more wry and sardonic type of UKIP voter than anything else, and as recent results have shown, it is not a bloc you want to disregard or take too lightly. He has a certain power in that regard, and you had best believe the staffers for the Government and Opposition realise that.

    I may be well overstating the case and overrating our influence by putting it in these specific words, but there is a sense that the politicians and hacks must have, however deeply submerged and unacknowledged openly, of “How will the ‘Guido’ voter view this?”, if only as a way to avoid having whatever it is they say die a-borning in its sheer fatuousness.

    Tommy has changed his tack, and is in tune with the people.

    The BBC are not anymore.

    The reason they struggled is because the argument Tommy is putting forward is both reasonable and straightforward. You cannot argue that down using hyperbole without destroying your own credibility. Especially when you know that public opinion is on that side.

    The interviews on the BBC these days are no longer about presenting facts or throwing information into the public domain, they are all about trying to coerce public opinion back to the BBCs political position.

    This is why the quality of the interviews are so poor these days, and why many are switching off.

    EDL are doing a good job. Am under no illusions with the act myself, but even though their politics I do not agree with at all, when they put their view that they wish to defend my rights as an English and that we should be proud of our country etc. I cannot disagree.

    Any trouble in a family which gets reported, true or false, the state will smash the family.

    For good measure it should not be forgotten that prison privatization is now a big agenda item over there with certain sections of criminal justice being actively privatized right now – G4S are major contractors involved.

    And a term to look out for: ‘Families in Transition’.

    The families which the state are breaking up, or which are breaking up naturally (not all marriages last forever) fall into the transition bracket.

    This is all being rolled out in the UK at present if you (not you Whilste’s as you are already aware) look around.

    To be fair, if there are witnesses to the alleged incident which took place in a public place, there is not much defense in the real world.

    You’re done.

    If there are no witnesses though and it did not happen, this could be defamation in the making and a good libel case.

    The damage to his reputation is settled for the time being.

    If he had the other brain cell he would have retained a good lawyer immediately (not that retard from Mishcon though, a decent criminal lawyer) issued a statement and then: Shut the fuck up and follow the lawyers advice to the letter.

    Max Clifford is a good example of where trying to spin your way out of trouble doesn’t work.

    You think these guys would have figured this out by now ?

    If you are going to throttle your partner in public, or be accused of that, the first thing is to stay out of the media, keep quiet (anything said could be incriminating), record all communication with the other party (think Br!scoe type situation / Huhne), and at the least consult with a criminal lawyer.

    The lawyer is duty bound to keep everything confidential.

    Watching your own back is your responsibility and a bit of fame / money is no longer a credible defense. Especially at a time when there is a clear political agenda looking for a way in to the public arena.

    In the mean time they shall continue to squirm.

    Optional funding would help cut them down to size, like with public service broadcasting over in the US.

    A public body trying to act as an all encompassing corporate propaganda agent for the UK government, or ‘Auntie’ as they previously like to describe themselves, never works.

    In all seriousness I think you set out the position with some accuracy here, if at the risk of compromising your moniker.

    What some people cannot adjust to is the subtle change which has occurred here in the life of this blog. It was, as its founder admitted, a sideline (purely to make mischief at the expense of politicians and for the author’s own self-gratification) which mushroomed into something transformative.

    He has ridden that tiger with great skill (the Chinese might say it would be unsafe to dismount anyway!) As it becomes more noticed, and everyone in the know reads or knows of it (Dave by admission in the first category, McDoom in the second) then there has been a clear need to accommodate some contributions of a polemical nature.

    You are right about our being the #1 creditor of the US, but also of Europe
    But it is all ying and yang
    We need eachtoher like never before
    That will ensure peace
    And, BTW, some Confucian numbers for you
    We have a growth rate of about 7% nowadays
    But 10 years ago, the economy was roughly half the size
    So that would mean a growth rate of 14% on 10 years ago
    No bad..

    Another document shows how Mr Burnham’s special adviser said she was “frankly disgusted” by television coverage exposing a hospital scandal ” They clearly were trying to stop the public from finding out that the NHS on their watch had become a death trap for anyone needing to use it. (Can anyone name the Spad?)

They believe that President Obama is a Muslim and that the young people killed by Norwegian Anders Breivik were not innocent victims.

    Failed social policy, aka Multi-Culti says:

    The idea was simple.

    Bring down costs of Labour and Pensions by importing cheap third world types to help break union grip on industry and dilute wages.

    Do this by manipulating credible lefty do-gooders to run with the selling and social conditioning to make it seem acceptable.

    Have government pass employment and various other legislation to keep the locals in line.

    When real competition, like Ch!na, comes along, attempt to head off at the pass by really ramping the intake of cheap third world labor.

    Unfortunately, when Ch!na keeps going and remains cheap (because they have more people, government foots more of the costs and their locals are working for a higher purpose rather than personal material gain) this breaks down as the third world types you have imported to the UK do not have the same level of skill / motivation or know how to work cheap and help UK industry.

    So this potters on until the third worlders children realize the error of their parents and the less than appealing situation they now find themselves in (marginalized, unemployable and divorced from their real roots, so culturally adrift), they will gradually polarize. Not having anything better to do, what comes next.

    And we do have Labour to thank for this as they made the problem worst. Without all the extra imports there would still be a problem but it would be much more manageable.

    The amusing thing is that the governments we helped out (by taking the ass-holes they would otherwise have had to ‘cleanse’) are having a right laugh at us as UK competitiveness dies and their own grows.
