That Clegg SpAd Hypocrisy in Full

SpAd turned politician Nick Clegg’s pre-election promise to stop advisers being paid for by the taxpayer looks even emptier than ever today. Fun-loving Emma Gilpin-Jacobs becomes his 20th taxpayer-funded SpAd, appointed Clegg’s director of communications. The LibDems now have an average of five SpAds per cabinet minister, double the average of the Tories. At a total cost to the taxpayer of well over a million pounds a year. Government of the SpAds, by the SpAds, for the SpAds…

    Funny how Owen Jones, Laurie Penny and Polly Toynbee are silent when it comes to news like this says:

    A 14-year-old girl became pregnant after being taken to P*kistan by her father and forced to marry a man, a judge has said.

    She was subjected to violence during which a gun was produced, according to Mr Justice Holman.

    The girl returned to England where she gave birth.

    Details emerged in a written ruling following a hearing in the Family Division of the High Court in Birmingham.

      Look, you nasty bigot, these people don’t know any better. How dare you attempt to judge them through the narrow prism of evil western cultural imperialism.

      Girl is fourteen —

      Older than the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus or Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry VII

      Owen Jones, Laurie Penny and Polly Toynbee are silent about these as well. Christians and Royalists should shut up. Wish you had.

        ALL religion is for deluded half wits, but it seems that the religion of peace has a monopoly of sheer cruelty to the defenceless,imported knowingly into our country in vast numbers by Blair /Brown in order to rub our noses in diversity , what an accomplishment!!

      HEARDITALL says:

      Nobody should give a flying fuck about how the muzzies treat their own women, it only becomes our concern when young white girls are passed around amongst sadistic perverts with the connivence of the cowardly police, in the name of community coherence,or pimped out by some Labour local authority’ care ‘home.

          But I would offer them a mars bar to those among them who stop saying cover up everything, it’s showing your beauty away. What about male beauty in this day and age and what about gender equality. These concepts are accepted by muslim scholars but not by nut jobs.


          • HEARDITALL says:

            MUSLIM SCHOLARS!!!!! they are all nut jobs.
            ALL religions are barking mad, some more so than others.

    Surely all of Nick Clegg’s pre-election promises look pretty empty now.

    Along with all of Cameron’s. Just like all of Blair’s and Brown’s before them.

      I feel the cost of rope for 650 bastards would be prohibitive and rather expensive.
      How about killing two birds with one stone and throwing them all on the multitude of blazing bonfires tonight. Cheap inexpensive and somewhat ironic don’t you think?

        Fantastic idea but a bit wet tonight. We could do it on St Georges day though. A sort of national celebration of common sense.

        kmc says:

        A bit smelly though. Although I suppose in London no one will notice.

        How about using the same piece of rope 650 times?

    “SpAd turned politician Nick Clegg”

    Hang on, do you mean someone in parliament used to ask Clegg for advice? That’s pretty scary.

    The British Electorate says:

    Can ANYONE take Clegg seriously? The title “Deputy Prime Minister” for this boy must be a joke. He always looks like the bag carrier for The Prime Minister, trotting alongside him when he’s permitted.

      Clegg’s reputation is even more shot than Cameron’s.

      Observer says:

      The title of ‘Deputy Prime Minister’ is a joke in itself. It’s a vanity title and is meaningless in the constitution.

      Clegg is only Deputy P.M. because Dave failed to win the 2010 Election against the biggest open goal ever left by Gorgon.

      Clegg is Dave’s fault.

      Jack Ketch says:

      It is the Grand Tradition of John Prescott, Geoffrey Howe, RAB Butler, Anthony Eden, Michael Hesteltine and Clem Attlee–in other words, a post for ineffectual wankers or troublemakers. It nicely mimics the US post of Vice-President that has been honoured with the description of “Not worth a bucket of warm piss”
      The post of Deputy Prime Minister was invented for Attlee during WW2 in a coalition government when the real PM was obviously required to concentrate on vital matters like winning the war and the Deputy could handle stuff like blocked drains, perverted Bishops and a shortage of candles. As anyone who has worked in corporate life knows, when you give an arsehole a title and a fat salary, he things that he actually has to do something to justify his existence and when someone has no power, no direction and no real reason for being–he will make a canute of himself.

    ‘Fun-loving Emma Gilpin-Jacobs’

    Exquisite journalistic prose.

    Question: You mean there’s something wrong with loving fun?
    Guido’s Answer : Absolutely not.

    Just one more reason to read this blog.

      I suspect “fun-loving” is code for “college bicycle”. Like throwing a sausage down Regent Street.

        The Critic says:

        I believe Blair once described himself as fun loving….nothing like a few wars to cheer you up. Or being the Middle East Peace Envoy…..all quiet on the Middle Eastern front….not.

        Your dartboard ain’t exclusive to the Tories

    FFS — Why do we need Spads at all? They are just LibLabConner wannabe M.P.s who will take over once Dave, Nickelarse and Milliprat have been wheeled into the HoL.

    What we need are politicians with previous experience of real work and real life — not these useless fuckers

    Looking back to the Freud party which Cameron / Osborne were at, don’t overlook that Emma used to work for Freud’s PR firm.

    Different subject — the fucking taxpayers are having to pay for flying lessons for some 21year old asylum seeker.

    Neither I nor my children who have paid taxes for years can afford flying lessons.

    WTF is going on in this LibLabConner shithole?

    Spadocrisy leading to a Spadgate affair, which in turn leads to a inter-party commission of inquiry.

    So yet another PR person. How about taking on some spads with experience and expertise in something useful?

A ‘senior Conservative party official’ passes judgement on Theresa May:

“She is boring. A technocrat. She is Philip Hammond with a fanny. Not interesting, but rendered interesting by circumstance. And that circumstance is that she is a woman. And in an age when the Prime Minister gets it in the neck for refusing to wear a fucking T-shirt that says he is a feminist, that is a rocket boost right underneath you.”

Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
