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.

      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!!

      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.

    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.

      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.
