  1. 1
    Calamity Clegg, Chief Cockroach says:

    Ed Balls


  2. 2
    Mitch says:

    I hate reading a newspaper online, and I’m DEFINITELY not going to pay for it. Just because something is possible doesn’t mean it’s a good idea.


  3. 3
    dai succinctly says:

    the statement would have benefited from proper sub-editing


  4. 5
    Chris Huhne says:

    Anybody know where I can buy some of this, on the QT?


  5. 6

      Change is on the cards for O’Bumberclart, Meesh will be down the road after his game of POTUS.

      She’ll find a quaterback and he’ll find a blonde.


  6. 7
    An awkward bastard says:

    No thanks to the Daily Telegraph I have just been in formed that some of these women making claims against Rennard are not averse themselves to spending time at the back of the bike sheds.

    What on earth has been going on here?

    No mention of it in Alistair Webster QCs report.

      A man on the Rue Du Cirque says:

      What a woman gets up to with politicians of little ability in private should remain in private.

      I am extremely indignant when there are attempts to bring such matters into the public domain and most certainly you should not be insinuating that I am responsible in any way shape or form for my long term girlfriend recently having to be hospitalized .

        Rumpy Pompidou says:

        The fact that a man is shown to be a lying, faithless twat who gorges at the public teat without remorse (or even mild embarrassment) should never be an issue in French public life. Jamais.


    • 23
      Sir William Wayde says:

      The fact the a man enjoys boxing does not entitle you to hit him in the face.


    • 28
      M­a­­q­bo­­ul says:

      Presumably these women had a say in who joined them at the back of the bike sheds.

        broderick crawford says:

        no . it was one of those games where all place their door keys into a box and after that it is the “luck” of the draw.


  7. 8
    VOTE UKIP says:

    Jo Coborn and Paddy Ashdown on DP laughing at the fact Nigel Farage who is recovering from a serious operation was hit on the head by a placard.

    I can’t wait to see their faces in May 2014/15.

      Privatise the BBC says:

      Watch the last 3 minutes of today’s Daily Politics for some real BBC bias. They just couldn’t pack in any more invective.


      • 34
        broderick crawford says:

        I think nigel is fantastic.

        the constitution of five oxen.

        nearly killed in that plane crash .

        now serious operation

        and days later bouncing back on telly all over the world as if nothing had happened .

        true churchillian !!


  8. 12
    Non twit / twat says:

    Will some kind tweeter point out the typo.

  9. 13
    Casual Observer 5 says:

    In these post Leveson days could this be the first politically inspired change in the previously free press ?


  10. 15
    M­a­­q­bo­­ul says:

    Next phase of its digital transformation.

    Like removing the pathetic paywall or putting a proper one in its place. It’s piss easy to get round it.


    • 18
      Telegraph Chief Content Officer says:

      It’s piss easy to get round it

      But why would anyone other than Johann Hari bother?


      • 25
        M­a­­q­bo­­ul says:

        It’s still better than the Independent and The Sun’s paywall is harder to get through than the Pentagon’s… so what to do?


    • 35
      broderick crawford says:

      my caucasian resident in sochi can get round any wall ….paywall, firewall , berlinwall, great wall , hadrians wall wailing wall … ice cream WALLS.

    M­a­­q­bo­­ul says:

    So does this mean Chris Evans will be giving up his Breakfast Show ?


  13. 20
    Sir William Wayde says:

    Chief content officer? It looks as though they need a chief discontent officer.


  14. 21
    Persona non grata says:

    Oh dear, yet another Monika bites the dust for daring to upset Fatty Fawke’s fragile ego.

    was Andrew Gimsom referring to Farage or Bloom when he mentioned the vulgar abuse that some women got from a certain kind of horrible boorish man, you get on social media? apparently they are to blame for women deserting the Tories in ever increasing No’s prior to 2015?


  15. 24
    Ian Smith says:

    Universal Credit will be delivered on time and on budget.


  16. 27
    Miss Trust says:

    For some reason I am very suspicious about the authenticity of this evidence. Something ain’t right somewhere.



  17. 29
    Dr Ke­lly says:

    Me too. It looks like a clear case of self h­arming.


  18. 36

    No doubt it will remain an anti cannabis rag filled with bigoted scare stories with no substance, basically the same rag as the Daily mail but for people who can read words more than seven letters long(mail reader stumble at 6 the sun readers at 5. The intellectual content in these three at least on cannabis remains the same no matter how long the words are!
