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…

    Fuck the LibLabCon says:

    Snouts in trough surely.

    Nick Clegg says:

    You’re supposed to do as I say and not as I do.

  3. 3
    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.

    kmc says:

    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.

    Mustapha Djinn says:

    He’s a MP. What do you expect ? Hang the lot of ‘em.

    The Happiness Index says:

    I am not happy

    Owen Jones, Laurie Penny and Polly Toynbee says:

    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.

    The Dutch Ambassador says:

    And you’re supposed to do as I say. What I do is none of your business.

    Nick Clegg and his FibDemons will be wiped out in 18 months time.

    Ed Miliband says:

    A promise a day keeps my chance of becoming PM at bay.

    The Angry Birds says:

    We can’t wait that long. They are ruining the country now.

  15. 15
    kmc says:

    “SpAd turned politician Nick Clegg”

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

    Fuck the LibLabCon says:

    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?

  18. 18
    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.

    Ted Davison says:

    ‘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.

    You’re certainly revolting.

    Fuck the LibLabCon says:

    I wonder if her punani is as big as her mouth?

  22. 22
    Mustapha Djinn says:

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

  23. 23
    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?

  24. 24
    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

    It’s the fixed term parliament bill to blame. Needs a two thirds majority to call for vote of no confidence.

  25. 25

    Never mind those cnuts — it’s that lying bastard Dave that we need to destroy

    Faceless Bureaucrat says:

    Clap! – “Wipers!”…

    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

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

  28. 28
    Screwed Taxpayer says:

    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

  29. 29
    Nick Clegg says:

    That’s not fair, I promised to oppose tuition fees and stuck by that promise didn’t I? err well perhaps I broke that promise a little bit.

  30. 30
    Fuck the LibLabCon says:

    Well I’m calling for a vote of no confidence right now, anyone else?

  31. 31
    Fuck the LibLabCon says:

    Well said.

  32. 32
    Observer says:

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

  33. 33
    Screwed Taxpayer says:

    Get one brazier, one iron poker, heat it to cherry red, and shove it up Dave’s arse. Then repeat the exercise for every other M.P. and all the Spads.

  34. 34
    The British Public says:

    We should be.

  35. 35
    Government Censorship says:

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

  37. 37
    The Privy Council Press Gaggers says:

    Constitution? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

  38. 38

    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.

    Be afreud, be very afreud.

  41. 41
    Religion is disgusting says:

    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.

  42. 42
    Screwed Taxpayer says:

    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?

  43. 43
    Revolution now pls says:

    Will Clogg take them to Europe when he loses in 2015? Just go now please!

    Matthew's great grandfather says:

    I think there must be deeper significance in that.

    Not aged well says:

    I used to think she retained a few shreds of attractiveness but her voice… !!!
    Horrid Essex-girl vowels. Ugh.

  46. 46
    It's always nice to be part of a team says:

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

  47. 47
    Prison officer says:

    Well that’s liberal, sort of. But how many of these people actually would not be able to get a job elsewhere? No, don’t answer that.

  48. 48
    Prison officer says:

    Back go your cell, and tune in like everyone else to Auntie like I told yous – all asylum seekers can have their dreams, you meanwhile, find a field and a small caravan I suggest for your family.

    Little Bo Peep says:

    Window dressing should always be performed behind glazed windows.

  53. 53
    Little Bo Peep says:

    So what would happen if Dave sacked him?

  54. 54
    Little Bo Peep says:

    w.a.aa…yyy back when, Fleetwood Mac sang about making loving fun.

    Those were the days…

  55. 55
    Little Bo Peep says:

    Freud was one of the biggest charlatans going. People must have been exceptionally stupid to listen to his ‘theories’.

  56. 56
    Just a thought says:

    Perhaps the instructor can put on his parachute, take the cvnt up to say 20000 feet, and then jump out.

    Jack Ketch says:

    Was Owen Jones over 14 before he was forced to………………………………..?

  58. 58
    Jack Ketch says:

    “fun-loving” and “Useless fucker” appear to be mutually incompatible.

    Big Peep, little Bo's Daddy says:

    Now now, you know you’ve always loved me best really.

  60. 60
    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.

    How many Spads did Prime Ministers Winston Churchill and Clement Atlee employ?

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

    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.

  66. 66
    HEARDITALL says:

    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!!

  67. 67
    HEARDITALL says:

    I think you may find that the deputy PM was in fact Bevin.

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

    3 Lions on his chest says:

    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.

  73. 73
    HEARDITALL says:

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

  74. 74
    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

  75. 75
    The Critic says:

    Parachutist surely?

    Must agree, what a pair of cxxxs.

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.”
