    Guido, for the many who are not in the political loop, could you give us a backstory to this, because I haven’t a clue who this guy is or what he’s tweeting about!

    I wonder if Camoron still wants to allow free access to the UK from Turkey now that Al Qaida have set up at least 3 training camps in the country?

    C.O.Jones says:

    Click on his twitter handle, self explanatory.

    Guardian news copied says:

    Guido blogs sweet FA

  8. 8
    Mitch says:

    The timings of his tweets suggest they were pre-written. Plus, he needs to take the ‘editor’ out of his username?

    But yes, who gives a f*ck?

  9. 9

    I always though Oasis was overrated anyway.

    F....... Update says:

    and Why sacked?

  11. 11
    C.O.Jones says:

    We will be having local training camps soon if we do not put a stop to our governments pandering to Saudi Arabia.

    Sleepy says:

    Time for Guido’s mid-day nap.

  13. 13
    Mee the new boss, same as the old boss says:

    Our host needs to keep in with assorted meeja types who he might need to employ him one day. Therefore, we are given these pointless “puff” stories about people we neither know nor care about.

  14. 14
    Hugh Janus says:

    He continued the transformation of the DT into the Daily Mailygraph.

    Presumably those politicians who now seek to butter him up are fearful of his reincarnation…..

  15. 15
    Red Top while you can says:

    Short term job over at the Mirror.

    A Vulgar display of Gushing Twattery or What says:

    Bloody Hell

    Who does this Prima Donna think she is?

    Lent is coming. Guido can detoxify.

    Think Thrice Tweet once says:

    Is he having a mental breakdown?

    He’ll be embarrassed when he comes round.

    Sir William Wayde says:

    Daily Telegraph sales:

    in 2009, when Mr Gallagher was appointed: 783,000

    In 2013, when he was dismissed: 555,000

    Torygraph went wrong when they supported Duncan?Smith for the tory leadership.

  22. 22
    Dead Tree Left says:

    One of the soppy leftwiingers who have been posing as ‘conservative’ in the press for some time so that Common Purpose can get its cultural marxist messages.

  23. 23
    The Cold Truth says:

    He cares what happened; we don’t.

  24. 24
    Freedom says:

    With friends like that, he’s obviously lost his way in life and ended up as a knob gobbler for the establishment.

  25. 25
    A concerned citizen says:

    He can sweep the streets round my way if he wants. Minimum wage, of course.

    Propoganda rules UK says:

    Dey jus work for da man.

    Coeur_de_lion says:

    I personally think that if Cameron still had Coulson rather than Oliver, he’d be flying in the polls right now.

    Grangemouth, Falkirk, Reverend Flowers, Balls, economic data – all handed to the Tories on a plate, can anyone honestly say that they’ve taken full advantage?

    Too slow to react and not brutal enough by half.

  28. 28
    Propoganda rules UK says:

    The missing Noasis member ??

  29. 29
    Lock up your daughters, wifes, Moms and Mistresses says:

    Francois Hollande, the French president, has landed one in England.

    A headline story with whooppee

    Casual Observer 6 says:

    France is politically and militarily weak.

    Time to get some territory back and return democracy to them.

  31. 31
    Propoganda rules UK says:

    Sales ??????
    They give them away in a lot of hotels.

  32. 32
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    We should care a bit.

    As UK press is now state controlled this is clearly a government decision.

  33. 33
    Private's Eye says:

    Or todays news in a fortnight!

  34. 34
    Propoganda rules UK says:

    What’s happened to Zoe Williams ?
    She’s regressed from common sense and down to earth pragmatist into a Labour loving retarded sufferer of EU OCD.
    She needs a new career as the Guardian is dragging her down to obscurity.

  35. 35
    Anonymous says:

    Move along quietly, nothing to see here.


    Standard procedure, that’s all.


  36. 36
    C.O.Jones says:

    That is not a problem. The prevailing wind is towards Scotland.

  37. 37
    tAKING THE mICK says:

    Tom Watson, Danny Alexander and George Osborne know how to have a good laugh then. I never realised that.

  38. 38
    Anon says:

    He’s just some jour no, now if he was related to Rory then that would be a different matter…

  39. 39
    The Missing Link says:

    When did she have a common sense phase in her life?

  40. 40
    Whitehall says:

    But relative to our mighty fleet of armchair admirals, they could probably still put up a bit of a fight. Maybe we should just bid for their postal vote stuffing contracts.

  42. 42
    HR says:

    Does he know how to hack phones?

  43. 43
    Breakaway says:

    What happened to Lyle?

  44. 44
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    He still has a better chance of being hired by the Mail then M’edhi H’asan…

  45. 45
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    That’s where the politically weak aspect comes into play.

    They will not want to fight. At least not to defend their government.

    Tick tock…

  46. 46
    1 down, 1 to go says:

    I hope Knox is torn to shreds. Evil fucking b-itch c-unt piece of shit.

    Italian police have found Raffaele Sollecito near the Austrian border after a court reinstated his guilty verdict for the murder of Briton Meredith Kercher in 2007.

  47. 47
    Ba-dum tish! says:

    Married Tate.

  48. 48
    Don't Panic! Don't Panic! says:

    But what if Salmond mutates!

  49. 49
    Wait - what! says:

    Will the Telegraph be a little less left leaning now or wasn’t it down to him?
    Not sure why it moved that way, became an acceptable version of the Guardian.

  50. 50
    Idiot's Guide to Propaganda says:

    Gallagher must have upset someone in Gov’t.

    It might have been for leaving the comments sections on when attempts were made by the paper to smear UKIP.

  51. 51
    King John says:

    The thing is, I don’t really like Calais very much and Parisians are so very rude.

  52. 52
    Wait - what! says:

    Agreed though Cameron is still an arse that lied about a Euro referendum and enjoys giving away our money in foreign aid.

  53. 53
    Fuck the LibLabCon says:

    Gallagher obviously wasn’t smearing UKIP effectively enough for the LibLabCon’s satisfaction.

  54. 54
    The Sugar Beats says:

    Ah, that’s sweet.

  55. 55
    Propoganda rules UK says:

    Or today’s scandal 2 years ago.

  56. 56
    Dave's eggs in one basket case says:


    Not only are they a Nuclear Power, independent of NATO and expeditionary force. They are our aircraft carrier.

    Anonymous says:

    No wonder he was sacked.
    The self-obsessed prick has disappeared
    up his own arsehole.

  59. 59
    she's a convicted murderer says:

    Hopefully Sollecito will start spilling the beans.
    Knox is as guilty as a puppy next to a pile of pooh.
    Despite last night’s attempt by Newsnight to portray
    her as an innocent victim.

  60. 60
    bs says:

    Self-important tosser. Why should No. 10 write to him, he’s supposed to be holding them to account?

  61. 61
    jimbo says:

    and waitrose

  62. 62
    Trev says:

    The Editor of the Daily Telegraph has been sacked??
    Is there any danger now it might start supporting the tory party?

    As for some nutjob saying Cameron lied about a referendum – he did no such thing. He said (during the last Euros) if the treaty had not been ratified by the time of the general election there would be a referendum. the treaty was ratified by Labour once the Euros were safely out of the way.

    No lies except from those who have no arguments only ignorance and bigotry. Sorry to upset you nutjobs and intrude into the mass hysteria. TTFN.

  63. 63
    Trev says:

    Aw didums. Are you one of the loons and fruitcakes Farage is currently disowning? Never mind there is always nthe EDL.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
