Read Guido’s Column in The Sun Today

Guido shares a page with Ed Miliband in today’s Sun, as an investigation by undercover reporters finds widespread cocaine use in our Houses of Charliement. In Guido’s column:

  • Good news for Guido’s campaign against parliament’s subsidised bars and restaurants
  • The PM ducks a challenge from Ed Balls
  • Boris slags off Dave over Andy Murray
  • Norman Tebbit has been back into No. 10
  • Hawkish Jim Murphy will stop Ed Miliband cosying up to LibDems over Trident renewal
  • Good News, Bad News from NHS England
  • David Ruffley’s £7,560 rage-related expense claim
  • Eric Joyce’s amusing rejected claim
  • “Nigel Farage: Gay Icon”!

Politics for the many, not the few. Just 60p…


  1. 1
    The EU is croques (de merde) monsieur says:

    Is the cocaine subsidised by taxpayers as well?

  2. 2
    Ear, Ear says:

    Osborne spends every waking hour trying to force the hand of the Labour Party (rather than, say, looking after the economic affairs of the country).

    Not that Labour have chanced their arm, what are Cameron and co going to do about it? Rather than getting all defensive about massive donations from Hedge Funds and rich businessmen? And splutter with indignation when it comes to tackling second incomes for MP’s?

  3. 3
    Neo Guido says:

    What’s the point?

  4. 4
    I fuckin luvs Marxist spunk i does, Stephanie says:

    I fully endorses this article, and everything wot the Labour party stands for i does

  5. 5
    Ear, Ear says:

    And people say the Right has a problem with sexism!

  6. 6
    Neo Guido says:

    Can you take a higher resolution picture if the column? It’s hard to read it from the image above.

  7. 7
    East India Company Wallah says:

    That mong in the picture-gormless lookin bastard
    Is he addicted or dealing?

  8. 8
    My Real Name says:

    If nobody wants to donate to a party, the party folds as it represents no-one, and no-one supports it. If people want to donate to a party, they will, and the party will survive as it has support. People should be free to donate or not donate, and donate the amount they want to. Simple really.

  9. 9
    Ear, Ear says:

    Especially as the Tory Party’s long term strategy is trying to bankrupt the Labour Party.

    Democracy. What’s that?

  10. 10
    Owen Jones says:

    There should be something like the TV licence fee to pay for left-wing parties:

    SWP, CPGB, UAF, Hope not Hate etc

  11. 11
    Bazinga! says:

    The the BBC paper review last night the female beeboid (Martine Croxall) was not impressed that Theresa May is rejecting the idea of an EU prosecutor. She couldn’t understand why anyone would be against such a great idea. “after all we’re in the EU”

    So I wonder if this overpaid dozy beeboid thinks perhaps we should have one for China, Russia and south America where most of the drugs and corruption comes from?

    The BBC always seem willing to throw our sovereignty away, just because of their hatred for anything ‘English’

  12. 12
    Whoop Whoop says:

    Remind us all again which party introduced laws discriminating against people based on their race and gender? Oh yes, the Labour party.

  13. 13
    Whoop Whoop says:

    Hating England and particularly the English, even if that means self-loathing, is the default setting of all leftards.

  14. 14
    Guido Fawkes says:

    Let me just say in the interests of balance today……..Owen Jones is full of SHITE!

  15. 15
    Whoop Whoop says:

    There is no other more worthy candidate for bankruptcy, than the Lying Labour party. They deliberately set out to destroy this country, based on their own narrow prejudice and hatred.

  16. 16
    JadedJean says:

    The ability to descriminate Is a measure of intelligence, Is it not?

    Are you suggesting that all people ate the same?

  17. 17
    Lynton Crosby says:

    What do you get if you mix a J*w with an Irishman?

    A discount on potatoes.

  18. 18
    Whoop Whoop says:

    I see Liz Truss is being tipped for promotion. Time to check out her credentials.

    Voted for Labour’s anti-terrorism laws.

    Voted for automatic enrolment in occupational pensions.

    Voted very strongly for equal gay rights.

    Voted very strongly for increasing the rate of VAT.

    Voted very strongly for university tuition fees.

    Voted for raising England’s undergraduate tuition fee cap to £9,000 per year.

    Voted strongly for more EU integration.

    So a Labour law loving, tax and spend, gay rights, EU serf.

    She’ll fit in perfectly with Dave’s SDP revival band of liars and frauds.

  19. 19
    Whoop Whoop says:

    I am suggesting all people are given opportunity in life based on their ability. Not based on their background, skin colour or gender.

    I understand that concept may be lost on some.

    Look...Global Warming is a Scam Minister Ok ? says:

    Just watched Ed Davey on Sunday Politics talking absolute rubbish about climate change to Andrew Neill. Despite noted academics putting in a report that Global Warming is not actually as serious as thought Davey was unable to accept this heresy

    Living in 97.3% white Merseyside says:

    It’s well over 20 years since I read the Sun.

    Which means it’s over 20 years since I used it as a substitute for bathroom tissues!

  29. 29
    A Sardine says:

    Nigel as gay icon ? Even this is cool.

    UKIP would be a good choice for the gay vote as they do not attempt to politicize homosexuality.

    Vote UKIP for a quieter and more discreet lifestyle with less militancy.

  30. 30

    No true Scouser would ever use the expression bathroom tissues ffs!

  31. 31
    Whoop Whoop says:

    A quick glance at just who will financially benefit from the Global Warming / CO2 fraud, tell’s all needed to know.

    As always, follow the money.

    A Sardine says:

    Bit of both unless his missus slipped him some of the kids Ritalin before he went in front of the camera.

    Bill d'Sarse says:

    The Labour Party seem to be doing a good enough job of bankrupting themselves.

    How can you “give politics back to the people” when you were instated by a Union?

    George Orwell says:

    “England is perhaps the only great country whose intellectuals are ashamed of their own nationality. In left-wing circles it is always felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman and that it is a duty to snigger at every English institution, from horse racing to suet puddings. It is a strange fact, but it is unquestionably true that almost any English intellectual would feel more ashamed of standing to attention during ‘God Save The King’ than of stealing from a poor box.” — Essay, “England Your England”, 1941

  37. 37
    Blair is a murderous traitor says:

    What is scouse for bog roll ? Shite roll ?

    That above comment does make it sound like the men of Merseyside have been spunking into the sun for the past 20 years. That I find incredible.

    Eh? Wotchew onabaat? Labour have bankrupted themselves or are your problems my problems in some fucked up collectivist victim culture obsessed socialist gutter? Me no comprende.

    The Labour Party has no God-given right to exist, any more than the Communist Party, the British Union of Fascists or Monster Raving Loony Party have.

    Speaking to his wine merchant, Owen Jones says:

    Forty million people are now wholly dependent on food banks for their survival. These are official figures from the Trussell Trust and audited by Labour, so they must be correct.

    Only Tory-voting filth can afford to buy food these days.

    While on the subject, I would like to thank all those generous, selfless people who have donated groceries to food banks. Without them millions more would die of starvation (hang on… something wrong here…

    “Is that so master Jones and will it be the usual case of Bollinger?

    Little Jones: “Rather, I’ve been invited to a boat party by Lord Mandelbum, it’s an all male affair and I want to give him a little present, oh and the wine.”

    And who put out his orders?

    A big nosed cowardly scotish bully comes to mind.

    Ippikin says:

    Somehow I am still not happy with Guido taking the Murdoch shilling.
    However you view it, a question mark is raised over his complete freedom of reporting.
    Would he for example report in his column any issues relating to the Sun; or indeed any of the Murdoch empire and if so, how long would his column survive the displeasure of his masters?
    Is the column subject to Editorial scrutiny and if so who makes the decision to print or not?
    I understand the desirability of ‘educating’ the masses in the realities of political life by giving them information they would never receive from the establishment press, but not convinced and so far have avoided patronising News Corp with my own shilling, which in itself raises a question.
    Not having read the column am I spouting a load of crap, or do I have a point?

    It would be very interesting to see a similar check on the presence of cocaine in the bogs at The Sun and News International’s buildings.

    Dweeb says:

    You only have a point if you can demonstrate that his position has been compromised.

    I would not include in that a failure to slag off the very organ in which the column appears. No journalist does that; it would be suicide and wouldn’t get through anyway.

    It’s a question of balancing the good that comes from “educating the masses”, as you put it, and the likelihood that he will not have Newscorp in his crosswires. There are quite enough others who want to hang the Digger.

  53. 53
    Happiness is knowing you are Welsh says:

    I think there should be periodic checks of lavatories and canteens of all private and public businesses to root out this little problem.

    The Sanitary and Inspection Department (SID for short) will not need a large budget or the aid of myriad consultants.

    Just call on say 5 people from every Job Centre give them three month contracts a Uniform flat cap and pencil plus either an electric car or Oyster Card and the job is as good as done

  54. 54
    Ippikin says:

    Gently, gently catchy monkey.
    You have a point, but it seems just a little odd to think of GF even thinking about considering pulling punches.
    Somehow does not feel quite right, but I guess you are right, the balance still favours the truth.

    We have a newspaper called the Independent. Anyone who thinks it is, or ever could be, must be independent of their senses.

    So let us put that one to bed. None of us is really independent, in that light.

    Now turning to our host. What started off as a way of letting off steam has turned into a major information source. It has happened against a background where all the traditional parties have gone off their rockers. He recognised that early, even earlier than I did and I wasn’t that slow. He has mercilessly plugged that line and it has borne fruit, tons of it. Farage has trodden a similar path and, again, he was ahead of me, this time by quite a long way. The disillusionment in Labour areas is much greater than I imagined though I was aware of the Blair/Brown divide.

    The important thing for Guido is that he gets his message out as there are many takers for it. Just look at how his Twitter figures have remorselessly risen. He is pushing at an open door. This column helps that objective so I think it is on balance a good thing.

    Your discomfort is a healthy sign. Keep it and use it against our host if you feel it necessary. We all need a man to whisper in our ears that we are only human, as a number of the Roman Emperors had. But there are too few Guidos, still, to counter the vast number of power-abusers in politics. I do not read the Sun either but I never did (except in the 1980s for a particular reason) and ceased taking any papers from the millennium change. Even if I wanted to, I cannot get it here without a struggle anyway. I fully understand that Guido has to show his bit by exhorting us to buy and that does not trouble me either.

    Old Blind Pugh says:

    “today’s Sun, as an investigation by undercover reporters finds widespread cocaine use in our Houses of Charliement”, Do the Sun’s ‘undercover reporters’ want to known where they are getting it from, so they can have a cheap source of supply. What out Geedo, the jealous ones might plant some snow on your desk, in the Little Shard, remember the picture of Gideon with a silly grin on his face sitting with that tart

    As if anyone would sneer at drunk upper-class yobs standing up on the Last Night of the Proms, trying to remember lines to God Save the Queen?

    Would the British public sneer at the rich boy’s Boat Race?

    Also, while they like a good Street Party, not sure that modern folks are THAT interested in the Royals.

    So leading the press to David Kelly, and then hanging him out to dry, is called “Manslaughter”?

  64. 64
    Anonymous says:

    While it seems unlikely that David Kelly was murdered by secret agents, it is far more likely that he was driven to his death by the Government as part of a desperate attempt to kill the scandal he exposed over tea with Andrew Gilligan (then BBC Defense Correspondent) at London’s Charing Cross Hotel.

    In light of this, a Mail on Sunday reporter (who was with Blair on a trip to the Far East the day Kelly’s death was announced) challenged white-faced Blair at a press conference: ‘Have you got blood on your hands?’ Blair stared in stony silence – and walked off.

    In 2003, a reporter working for the Mail on Sunday, abandoned protocol by sticking his hand up at the end of a Tokyo press conference and asking: ‘Have you got blood on your hands, Prime Minister? Are you going to resign over this?’

    The clip of a shocked and speechless Blair was picked up by grateful TV news bulletins. The reporter instantly became a hate figure for Alastair Campbell and legions of Blairites.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
