Lording it Up, Azerbaijani Style

With lobbying top of the agenda and  Nick Clegg on his high horse, last week Guido brought you news of a LibDem with an unusual parliamentary pass that they denied was ever used inappropriately. This morning Edward Lord has accused Guido of an “unfortunate and highly inaccurate attack”, writing to colleagues at the City of London claiming that the piece had been given a “full rebuttal”. Not quite – the word Rwanda was replaced with Uzbekistan.

Lord denies that his parliamentary pass was anything to do with his work for the  European Azerbaijan Society. On his own website he claims to have stood down from the society in November 2011, which does little to help his case given the fact that his pass sponsor, Lord Kilclooney, was flown all expenses paid to Azerbaijan in May of that year. Kilcloony even went again the following year. As the above picture shows, Edward Lord remains a strong advocate for the republic. The Mail have more on Kilcloony and other sinister connections to the country. Passes and free holidays. A coincidence, no doubt.

    All expenses paid trip to Azerbaijan?

    I went there in 2008 over land from the Georgian border to the ferry terminal in Baku and found the description of a $hit hole would be an insult to other $hit holes around the world.

    You see the bit at the start of James Bond the world is not enough? Pretty much sums up the entire place horrific pollution, scamming population, scamming cops, scamming people. Mass deprivation, 4th world towns along the main road which was more of a dirt track than anything else.

      It’s changed beyond belief since 2008, after the money started flooding in from the new oil and gas developments. It’s not a bad place at all for a free holiday.

    One does feel that Mr Fawkes is shooting his load somewhat prematurely with this ghastly Sun “column” he seems insistent on penning. Particularly worrisome is the way that Fawkes advertises said ghastly column on this site each Sunday with little teasers as to what he has written about. One feels that he is giving his enemies something of a “heads up” as they say in certain parts of the land. If one was cynical one would feel that the once powerful blogger Fawkes has had his wings clipped by his paymasters at News International or what ever it is those dead child bothering scum are naming themselves this week.

    Seriously. Royal parasites breed. Shock, horror. We should mourn our pockets having to pay for another round of parasites. Deepest recession ever and we celebrate a useless permanent cost. Cue – the usual BS about tourism and trade generation. Because if France reinstituted royals their whole economy would get boosted by 10%, I don’t think. British folk really are fucking thick – QED hysteria about death of the biggest brainless blow-up doll in history in 1997.

      News doing the rounds at the moment is that the kid was still born last night and they are waiting for some other “slave” to drop a sprog right now to replace the dead one. Apparently they did a similar thing with Queenie years ago, only the real Elizabeth was actually born a fucking dribbling mong so the switched her and bricked the mong up in Kensington palace.

    So Lord gets done over on Friday. Then he gets done over on Monday. Knowing who he has tried (and failed) to do over himself, I would suspect this is the just the start of a VERY bad week for the corpulent Mr Lord. I hope he has a good lawyer. And deep pockets.
