      The original Rich drawing has been hit by the cost of living crisis. Up by a massive 300% in just days. A future Labour government would freeze the price of a Rich and tax him at the 50p rate.

      I supose this drawing is intended to lead me to conclude that David Cameron is spending public money on getting his perverted jollies. I cant stand the man but I rather suspect that isn’t correct. The Rich cartoon has no finesse, humour, satirical merit or other redeeeming feature.

      This isn’t press freedom or freedom of speech. It simply reflects very poorly on Quido who desperately wants to be taken seriously. Come on Quido. Can’t you do better than this level of bilge?

        I have every confidence in the accuracy of this depiction as a metaphore for Cameron’s attitudes of narcissistic perversion at the taxpayer’s expense. Anyone who can get a polticial hard-on by taxing the poor to pay for windfarms and foreign aid is quite likely to be the kind of self-regarding millionaire who would spend 7p on a bulldog and adore the fact that he can expect HMRC to hound the public to pay for it.

    Bramber Giclee. There is a name to conjure with. Dunwich and Old Sarum. The latter, some of the older readers here may remember, as being where Salisbury cathedral used to be before it moved to the new place.

    What they have in common is they were all Rotten Boroughs. The 1832 Reform Act, well meaning and rather Whiggish, felt that villages of a handful of people, who would return no less than two MPs, was not representative.

    With the wisdom of hindsight, how fragrant that word Rotten has become. These MPs were not paid, one had to be a government minister for that. The minister for Wales had nothing to do. Quite right too. There is much more corruption and excess spending now than there was then.

    My proposal is that we repeal the Reform Act now. It was clearly a ghastly mistake for which we have paid dearly for rather too long.

    This morning I read that Cameron is going to kick start the building trade by reducing the scope of Building Regulations.

    I had the misfortune to buy a brand new house from a supposedly reputable national builder during our years of Socialist Rule.

    All internal doors were warped and needed replacing within 18 months. No such problem with the front door though: that was kicked off its hinges in 5 seconds flat by our friendly neighborhood burglar.

    The supposedly up and over garage door never ceased to amuse our dog. The kitchen made IKEA look a quality operation. Don’t even mention the gas central heating boiler after its first free annual inspection by British Gas.

    The point I am making here is a serious one against Mr Dave Bulldog Clip Cameron.
    The overall standard of spec building has been abysmal for decades with people constantly sold down the river (if you can pardon the unintended pun).

    Here we have an example of caring supposedly better than socialist highly efficient Politicians selling the people they are supposed to help for a fast buck.

    A foreign governor of the BoE talking about a new normal for interest rates ?

    This is the retarded fool who brought a Xanax’ed recycled sandal wearing inbred mong of a wife to mix with the better classes in London and advocate such shitty communist ideals (forced in Canada, particular on the first nations folk), and who over in Canada decided to extend mortgages to 40 years rather than deal with the rather nasty housing bubble there which could take their economy down.

    A major export from Canada is fertilizer – aka: Shit.

    Defining a ‘new normal’ for interest rates is perhaps the most retarded garbage yet to come out of this fools mouth.

    Mean reversion is the correct term, and that will be happening to about the 5% level within the next couple of years, likely after a short period at 7 to 10% in order to clear out the last of the dregs Labour left behind in the economy, and retards like Carney himself.

        A worrying aspect is whether or not this is part of the screwed up Fabian plot to nationalize key parts of private industry. Canada has a very strong Fabian presence which is why the appointment of this individual Carney was interesting, and also quite toxic for the UK.

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”
