Review of 2013: A Very Bad Year for MPs in Guido’s Crosshairs

It was a very bad year for the lying, cheating, criminal politicians that found themselves in the crosshairs of this blog. Guido was in court to see Chris Huhne sentenced to eight months for perverting the course of justice. You can enjoy it all over again by watching our Guy News specials recapping how Huhne lied and lied and lied again, a musical tribute to him “going down”, and 14 lies in 60 seconds. For the full story of how Guido hunted Huhne, from the day he walked out on his family and went to the gym having just told his wife he was leaving her for another woman, to his guilty plea, resignation and prison sentence, click here.

Santa delivered an early Christmas present by jailing expenses fraudster Denis MacShane for six months. During sentencing the judge said MacShane’s £13,000 expense fiddling constituted “considerable and repeated dishonesty”. The true figure is in the hundreds of thousands. You can read how Guido has pursued MacShane down the years, including reporting him to the police when new evidence of his criminality arose, here.

It didn’t end in court. Patrick Mercer was forced to stand down at the next election after being disgraced in a cash-for-questions sting. Guido has always know Mercer was a wrong’un, so it was no surprise to hear the bent MP’s fear of this blog revealed in his own words. Another sleazy Tory, conflicted Tim Yeo, escaped the same punishment after being exposed in a sting of his own, though he wasn’t so lucky with his local party who decided to give him the boot. Stay tuned as Yeo tries to fight for his political life in the New Year.

Guido has been on the case of randy Lord Rennard, the hands-on LibDem peer known as the ‘Door Locker’, for years before 2013 brought about his demise. Nick Clegg, Danny Alexander and Jo Swinson were slammed in a damning report on Rennard’s sexual harassment and the LibDems’ lies were finally revealed. Read Rennard’s sex pest history in full here.

Finally, spare a mention for Mike Hancock. Forced to resign the LibDem whip as he is privately prosecuted for sexual harassing a disabled female constituent.  The leaks from the unpublished independent report into his behaviour are damning. 2013 has seen MPs targeted by Guido for their various financial, sexual or criminal misdeeds drop like flies. Roll on 2014…

      Happy new years Geedes and chums, you will have to start looking over your shoulder, you have upset quite a few quite powerful people, and things happen to folks who cross powerful people, do not make any mistakes or they will all be digging their daggers in, B’Liar is no longer charge, thank goodness, but make one mistake and they will all be on to you and Rupe will not remember you. In the dirty world of politics lying is part of the game, the trouble after a time, politicos of all parties tell porkies just so they can stay in power, power means money and in some cases big money, and when you get large or potentially large companies and very rich people money changes hands for favours, and to gain advantage comercially (strange how planning permissions get granted when there is a large public objection to a development).

          Good Luck, you're going to need it says:

          This site deals in chump change.

          It boasts of its involvement in highlighting a few grand being cheated from taxpayer funds yet when it comes to the hundreds of billions of pounds of taxpayers’ money being embezzled by the “free markets” not a word of criticism can be found. Indeed, this site actively promotes free markets.

          And at the same time it attacks and blames the state for the loss of cash due to the funds embezzled by those free marketeers. Now that’s chutzpah!

          You really couldn’t make it up!

          Anyway, Merry Christmas to all the readers.

          p.s you aren’t going to make another incorrect prediction for the next General Election like you did last time, are you? As long as those cheques from Tory Central Office keep rolling in who cares, eh?

          • FFS says:

            We achieved more in the Victorian era with far fewer politicians getting in the way. Real progress in this nation has more or less halted because we are run by unelected politicians in the EU that haven’t a fucking clue what we want or need, and because “consensus politicians” have decided to follow a creed that has taken us on the wrong path since 1950.

    • 429
      Chump Change says:

      Guido deals in chump change.

      He boasts above of his involvement in highlighting a few grand being embezzled from taxpayer funds.

      Yet when it comes to the hundreds of billions of taxpayers’ money being fraudulently claimed in one form or another by his beloved “free markets” (guffaw) he doesn’t merely go missing, he actually spouts out propaganda on behalf of his fellow reactionary free market embezzling masters.

      And all the while he attacks the state who provides these handouts to his bankrupt friends. Chutzpah at its most Chutzy.

      You really couldn’t make it up! He’s a busted flush (as are his loyal Tory free marketeer readers).

      Anyway, merry Christmas Mr Fawkes, here’s to a happy New Year.

      p.s. you aren’t going to make the wrong prediction yet again for the next General Election, are you? Who cares, as long as those Tory HQ cheques keep arriving in the post, eh?

      All those “expenses” should be allowances not fully chargeable expenses as they expect the lower orders to have, the darlings would have to pay 45% tax, all MPs should have their salaries and allowances payed into a UK bank account, in their own name, not into some sort of tax reduction vehicle, I cannot say avoidance that is illegal isn’t it.

          Indeed, by isolating themselves ( deliberately ) from the financial consequences of their wicked policies. The political class have placed themselves beyond contempt.

          Thousands dead in NHS death camps, no heads rolled. Thousands dying every winter, because of deliberate policies to make energy an expensive ‘luxury’ not so much as a shame faced apology.

          Yet of course MP’s food, heating and petrol, among practically everything else a citizen is forced to find from their ever shrinking wages, is subsidised on expenses.

          The entire facade needs ripping down and the LabLibCon EU lackey’s replacing.

        1995 £4 per night “subsistence allowance”. I used to work away a lot and got a £15 per night meal allowance (usually covered a hotel meal and drink, but after six weeks at the Stakis Windmill in Leeds you usually went to a takeaway and got a curry with an inflated receipt). The £4 a night was for days that you were actually working and covered hotel laundry, phone calls home (no mobiles in those days and hotel phones were expensive) and condoms from the hotel bogs.

      b c, why should low life be treated any more harshly than those who have go away with millions. I am not condoning thieving, it seems these days to be a fact of life, low life see their “betters” who should know better, and are wealthy enough already, getting away with stealing and sometimes openly condoned by the powers that be, as long as they are not publicly found out, then the powers that be tut – tut and walk away. I remember a certain Mr. Poulson with his friends in the north, in the good times Poulson was giving largess but he did one thing which eventually bought the stack of cards down, he had a “little black book” (probably quite a large one) in which he wrote down the names of those to whom he had given largess, should it be ever needed in the late 70′s it was when work dried up, I think members of all parties were implicated, he asked them for for work and they turned their back on him, that little black book eventually was the dynamite that exploded and sent several to jail and eventually fizzled out in the mid 80′s when Maggie called time.

        FFS says:

        They shouldn’t be treated any more harshly – they should ALL get gaol time.

        Apart from our left-wing activist friend helping stir things up this a.m. we all believe stealing of all kinds is wrong and should be punished.

        If someone steals in desparation it is up to the courts to sort that out. It is not up to some C.P. Plod to decide he is judge and jury and decide some chav is innocent before they’ve even been caught red-handed!

        That’s the real problem with Common Purpose. They take people that are supposed to be in independent parts of our constitution and bring them together. Before you know it they aren’t really independent, the appropriate checks and balances are gone and you have Chief Constables talking like they are Judges. And that’s not a conspiracy – C.P. are openly doing that kind of thing – they are basically a state sanctioned form of the men with the funny handshake.

          Quite right, though unfortunately the Moslem religion does allow homosexuality in a clandestine manner, but not lesbianism.
          The main problem is that these “married” people of the same sex are allowed to adopt children.

          • 21stcnow says:

            Isn’t this better Omar than allowing children to go lonely and unloved. Say you were 3 and your parents had been killed in a road accident or war. Would you prefer to be alone in a foster home or loved by adoptive parents? Its a cruel and evil man who would prefer the former because of some 9th century hadith.

            God/allah/yahweh etc etc indeed doesn’t exist. But would you dare say that to one of your beloved muslims? It’s leftie apologists like you who’ve enabled muslims to trample on our way of life, demanding and getting halal meat in schools – THE most barbaric way to kill an animal – burka clad nurses and female genital mutilation without any prosecution. How does it sit with you, being such a gutless hypocrite who loves to talk about equality but are deadly silent when it comes to muslims preaching homophobia, misogyny, violence and anti-semitism? Don’t get me wrong, I know a lot of right wingers here are homophobic too and they’re idiots. But you and your leftie friends never have any word of condemnation against muslims who call for gays to be executed and unmarried women who have sex to be stoned to death. That doesn’t quite fit with your politically correct “islam is peace” bollocks, does it? Much more comfortable to just shriek “Thatcher! Thatcher! Tories! Thatcher!”

            The militant gay lobby continually push the image of homosexuals as the soul of the party, every female’s friend and of a happy group proud of their sexuality. What they don’t want you to think about is the physical mechanics of their sexual practices. Using the human body’s garbage disposal system as a sexual playground is something the average person would look on with disgust, and the militant gays know it!

Only a few old codgers living in the past and wallowing in their bigotry just cannot bring themselves to see they have lost the argument. Bigtime. Talk about being on the wrong side of history. And whats the betting you call yourself a Christian or similar FFS. We have to laugh at your pathetic bigotry.

          • FFS says:

            Nope, quite a few straw dolls you have created there.

            What I object to is the state claiming it can “marry” people at all. What the hell business is it of the state? How is it reasonable for the state to sanction anybody’s relationship? It’s none of their fucking business. It’s fucking outrageous that agents of the state can say “ah yes, your relationship now has official approval”, let alone pick and choose what they think is an acceptable relationship and what isn’t.

            I don’t see anything in the 10 Commandments that has anything to say about gays, nor is it mentioned in the New Testament, so I take it that God doesn’t care too much.

            Having said that, promiscuous anal sex killed over a million gay men and has seriously damaged the lives of many more. So those that condemn it have a reasonable point to make.

            I believe only about 5 countries outside the EU have approved same sex marriage.

    Do as they say, not as they do says:

    May I suggest a new campaign, urging Polly Toynbee, Laurie Penny, Owen Jones, Billy Bragg and other high profile self-proclaimed socialists to move to France to enjoy its 75% top rate of tax? Surely they can’t have any problem with that? Polly and co would surely be happy to be taxed at that rate and would be keen to live in a country that has such admirable socialist ideals? There’s no way they’d want to keep the high net salaries they currently receive. That’s not what socialism preaches. It has to be subsistence-only. Any more than that is just profligacy and counter to the collective good. I’m certain Polly, Owen and gang want only to earn subsistence level salaries only. Right, Polly? Polly? Oh, looks like she’s flown to Tuscany. What about you, Owen? Laurie? Any of you?

      Thank you Labour, thank you Conservatives, and a big thank you to the LibDums, who hog-tied the coalition into surrender.

      Taking a route that had less ice when Sir Douglas Mawson was there a century ago. So much for the global warming lies.

      “The central aims of this expedition are three fold:

      To repeat the original scientific experiments conducted by Mawson’s AAE 100 years ago.

      To spread the word of the value of scientific endeavor to as wide an audience as possible.

      To complete the program in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.

      Our vessel, MV Akademik Shokalskiy, is well-experienced in these waters. She will carry a mixture of scientists and a limited number of fare-paying passengers. As a passenger you will be invited to act as a field assistant to help the scientists complete their ambitious programs.”

      “…Day 9-10 – 15 to 16 December 2013

      Working In Sea Ice Towards The Antarctic Coastline

      Each winter the sea around Antarctica freezes for several hundred kms out from the coast and in early summer the ice is persistent along the East Antarctic coastline. We anticipate it will take 1 to 2 days to work our way across this beautiful icescape, which is a critical habitat for diatoms, krill, minke whales, and crab-eater and leopard seals.

      Days 10-18 – 17 to 24 December 2013

      Commonwealth Bay And East Antarctic Coastline

      We hope to arrive at the fast ice edge in Commonwealth Bay on 17 December and commence our science work and over-ice approach to Mawsons Huts in earnest. Of course our progress will be dominated by weather considerations, but ideally we would moor the vessel against the fast ice edge so that ice and ocean studies can begin and we can send our airborne drone out to view the route towards Cape Dennison and Mawsons Huts. Once a route is determined we believe we will need to use our over-ice vehicles ( Argos) to mark a route then commence transporting scientists and passengers to the coastline as weather and ice conditions allow and the route is safe…”

    London New Years Eve 2013: Scratch ‘N’ Sniff ‘Multi-Sensory’ Fireworks Celebrations To Kick Off In The Capital ”

    20 tons of fireworks for Edinburgh , god knows how many tons for Londonistan
    (with all those explosions it will make the residents think they are back in their own country)
    and now we have flavoured fire works 90% of which will be blown miles away before it hits the ground

    Maybe it’s to celebrate the arrival of a million Eastern European Gypsies ?

    Politicians really know how to waste OUR money

      FTN members were scathing of Huhne’s contribution. His article blaming civil servants for a lack of trust in politics (talk about people in glass houses) and his slasher article on selfish pensioners (for daring to be old) were particular low lights.”

    A feast of fruity flavours including peach snow, edible banana confetti and orange-scented bubbles are set to descend on revellers at London’s New Year’s Eve celebrations.

    The aim is for an estimated 50,000 revellers, in an area around the size of three football pitches, to be able to taste and smell the party atmosphere when they flock to the banks of the River Thames for the annual fireworks display.

    In what is being billed as the “world’s first multi-sensory fireworks display”, there are to be clouds of apple, cherry and strawberry mist, peach snow, plus thousands of big bubbles filled with Seville orange-flavoured smoke and 40,000 grams of edible banana confetti in the tie-up between the London mayor’s office and Vodafone.

    All of the flavours conform to halal and kosher standards.

    Gotcha, 21stc twat says:

    You’re a Blairite. I knew it would be a matter of time before you showed your true colours. Yes, I suppose you could call Iraq a mistake. One that resulted in a million deaths but has made Mr Tony very, very, very, very rich. And as Peter Mandelson said of Labour: “We’re perfectly relaxed about people becoming filthy rich”. Which is why Labour cut the top rate of tax for the richest for 13 years. Oh, except for the last 4 weeks before the 2010 election. Also the reason why Labour raised pensions by a whopping 75p.

    But yes, you’re right. That was the only “mistake” the “glorious” Blair regime made. That and PPI contracts in the NHS handed to his personal friends, resulting in hospitals being charged £350 to have a lightbulb changed and has left hundreds of hospitals in debt to the tune of millions, all going into the pockets of Tony’s cronies.. Oh, and calling September 11 a good day to bury bad news. But that’s it. Oh, wait, and there was the top down targets culture in the NHS which resulted in thousands dying in hospitals, followed by Labour covering it up because Andy Burnham and co didn’t want to be publicly embarrassed by inconvenient stories about elderly patients dying whilst lying in their own faeces. But that’s it.

    Wait a second. There was also Labour Health Department officials ordering crates of champagne while patients at Mid Staffs drank from vases. Or just died of thirst.

    So it’s just those mistakes. Nothing else. Actually, there was also smearing Dr K e lly as a Walter Mitty type and hanging him out to dry in public, followed by his TOTALLY UNSUSPICIOUS death in the woods.

    Not forgetting the biggest increase in peacetime state surveillance in history. That was grand. And the smearing campaigns against anyone who dared criticise His Holiness St Tony, like the scarred train crash survivor who condemned Labour and as a result Al Campbell set his pack of wolves the task of finding out who she voted for at the most recent election.

    Other than all that, yes, Tony was and is the messiah.

      A former Labour supporter says:

      They also allowed 4 million immigrants into the country “to rub the Right’s nose in it” and then wondered why (a) there was suddenly a shortage of affordable housing and (b) high unemployment among the low-skilled (ie traditional Labour voters). And a shortage of hospital beds, primary school places, GPs, and so on and so on.

      And don’t forget the “edjerkayshun” policy that left a generation of school-leavers more or less illiterate (and unemployable).

      Or Miliband’s Green Taxes which are causing ever-increasing energy bills (or “a cost of living crisis” as Miliband likes to call it, conveniently ‘forgetting’ that he’s the cause.)

      And the utterly useless (but compulsory) £450 Home Information Packs.

        Have to say, I could not believe this when I saw it broadcast live. Not only did it say everything I had warned about from the turn of the century but it was so wonderfully ironic too. Most people can watch this now and think how ridiculous they sound. Yet there I was in 1998/9, a full 8 years earlier listening to the real people and thinking You must be out of your tree!

        If you listen carefully, you can hear some gasps of astonishment coming from the audience. As if what they were saying was too audacious. Irony is normally taken to mean speaking the opposite of what is meant. I heard this same conversation, repeated in snatches, all that time beforehand. The people who were saying these things actually believed them. That is why it is going to take so long to turn this around.

        So perhaps I was stupid not to stay and line my pockets… I am happier with how it has turned out though.

    “There’s a misconception here – we are not trapped in new ice that’s been created because its cold,” said Turney. “This is very old, thick ice that’s been re-mobilised. It was attached to another part of the continent and has broken out and, with the south-easterly winds we’ve had, has pushed it up against the coast … and pinned us in.”

      The places to watch are the coach stations and the ferry terminals, but of course the MSM will go for the airlines where only the richest immigrants will use. An old transit van stuffed full of poor Roma is the preferred and cheapest method of travel, you can bet the farm the media will stay away from those places of entry. Other places that will be avoided? Housing and social security offices of course, you wont find the media anywhere near those places.

    UKIP first and last says:

    How bent is the MSM? A ship stuck in the Antarctic sea ice for well over a week and the MSM is not interested, I wonder why? The BBC and the guardian have their propagandists aboard a ship of fools on a global warming propaganda mission that went disastrously wrong, you can bet the media would have been peddling their stories like mad if the ship hadn’t become stuck in record sea ice. A multi million dollar rescue effort under way and not a sign of any real media interest or coverage, ice breakers called in and unable to break through, a real drama you would think the media would love. How bent is the MSM?

    FFS says:

    Manchester City Council have just taken £250,000 of taxpayers money and has put it in a separate fund to pay peoples’ food bills.

    Not content with doing this they have taken another £100,000 of taxpayers money and put it in another fund to pay peoples’ electricity bills.

    The only thing Cameron has done is say we should all be careful because his perception of an economic recovery is “fragile”.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

It’s money innit.
