Another LibDem Donor Nicked

Scoop from the FT this morning: arms dealer and LibDem donor Sudhir Choudhrie has been arrested by cops from the Serious Fraud Office over allegations he was involved in alleged bribery by Rolls-Royce in the Far East. Along with bent trader Michael Brown that makes two of the LibDems’ largest donors implicated in major financial scandals. LibDem sex scandals were becoming ten a penny so nice to see them returning to old fashioned funny money. Don’t bet on them giving any of it back…

      What is worse, unlike UKIP who took money from a legitimate British taxpayer and were told to pay it back, the LimpDims are never ordered to pay back any money, no matter how dodgy the contribution – eg. Brown was not a UK taxpayer, they should never have accepted his money.

      Where is that lord who was made a lord and did not live in this country, you know the one, very big donor to the Cons and their one time leading light? Just asking, none of the parties are exactly as clean as snow more like the colour of driven slush, dig deep enough into any of them and you get dirty linen.

      Dave Wasted his chance of a lifetime says:

      So Dave the first Tory PM in a generation. He could have reformed the Lords, re-drawn the electoral boundaries, introduced the right to recall a crooked MP, scrapped postal votes for the fit and able, re-built the country’s electricity security and dredged the rivers to stop flooding.

      Instead he put all his efforts into homosexual marriage and white wind temples to the Green God of CO2.

        The wasted years says:

        And as for Austerity, we owe even more than when Dave started. Eric Pickles says we are a very wealthy country and Dave says money is no object.

          Some nice ideas #22, but you forget to mention that little ball and chain round his ankles (neck?) known as the treacherous wrecking Libdems. Now if he had had his clear majority…

          …. but I suspect that bumsex would still have appeared unannounced on the menu somewhere.

      What on Earth are we doing? says:

      I can’t see what all the fuss over Rolls Royce is about. At least it was creating British jobs for British workers, unlike Dave’s foreign aid to the Indian Space program and the African Spice girls.

      Give me a good old fashioned British jobs boosting bribe any say over scattering money like confetti over African dictators dressed up as foreign aid.

        No no no! This has fuck all to do with RR; it is all about Libdems receiving dodgy cash contributions from dodgy individuals.

      Eric Pickles says:

      Giving foreign aid to Africa will help the people on the Somerset levels. I am sure they will all welcome that.

      Why doesn't Dave ban postal votes except for the infirm and armed forces? says:

      Postal Votes make election campaigning worthless. If last weekend the Labour candidate had been outed as Jimmy Savile’s mentor and a London tube bomber, he would still have won.

      Why are plod interested? When the Saudis had their collar felt by the Serious Fraud Squad regarding corruption over a British Aerospace arms deal, their pal Blair used his ‘executive’ power to have the investigation shut down.

        The Cons in 3rd place in Wythenshawe and Sale East, backed by the Master, poor old Dave must be quaking in his shoes now, how long to the EU elections, 3 months is it, I might vote UKIP this time it will not make much difference really as I live in a one party state. I have yet to work out how I can vote for someone who I don’t know anything about especially when they are strangers to the area, same goes for voting in company meetings, most votes are cast by the big investors anyway, same in the small pension I get, how can I vote for someone I know nothing about apart from a paragraph or two in the voting bumph?

        He only lost because Murdoch gave him a lightbulb head.
        Right up to that moment he had a strong lead.

          The Fabians says:

          The polls before an election are always more reliable than the poll itself.

          We believe that in future elections should not be held, as they give dubious results. Instead the government will be determined by what IPSOS MORI tells us they expect the result to be based on a sample of 1000 people phoned early on a Sunday morning.

    • 25
      Officer Dibble says:

      Why don’t they take a random sample of 1000 of those postal votes in Wythenshawe, go back and interview the individuals who voted, check signatures etc.

      You could easily dress it up as a “competition” to prompte postal voting – eg. “a lucky 10% of postal voters could receive a prize”.

      • 34
        C.O.Jones says:

        Something needs to be done about it! High postal voting always benefits Labour.

        I mean its not really the party where most of their voters are on business trips abroad or holidaying in the Seychelles is it?

        May I suggest fraud?

        • 49
          C.O.Jones says:

          There is a very easy way to test whether fraud is involved and it is 100% foolproof.

          If all the postal votes reflect the choices of the walk in ballot box vote then there can be no arguing.

          If however the postal votes favour a specific party then democracy has been tampered with and is therefore meaningless.

          NE Frontiersman says:

          Always? Wasn’t the LD’s post-Huhne majority in Eastleigh won by sackfuls of postal votes?
          Here in Waltham Forest we’ve gone beyond such inefficiencies. We simply write in extra votes for Labour at the count.

    • 60
      Jeremiah says:

      That is totally incorrect, what should say there are a number of homosexuals in the Cons, there are some allegedly homosexuals in the Cons who are married for convenience shall we say, and there are some who in their heart of hearts are not quite sure what they are, the rest are straight and go to sessions with Miss Whiplash or whoever it is now. In short they a cross section of the public where it is said 20% are homosexual and 20% dead straight and the rest in to a greater or lesser extent between the two extremes. One of the greatest Generals in the ancient world was either way, which way, his name, Alexander the Great and he still stands head and shoulders above most of the politicos today.

        I have come to the conclusion that well over 50% of our MPs are J e w i s h, gay, foreign, have foreign parents or are crooks.

        I’m quite sure they are representative of the UK public as a whole, in the sense they believe in all manner of bull-crap, are corrupt and greedy, lazy and feckless.

      Well I never, but they did says:

      They did well in an area that a red rosette on a lampost would win, 38%? voted so 62% couldn’t get off their ar5es to go out and vote, tells you something is very wrong will this country, still they have their MP until next year, no doubt who will make sure he gets a good spot at the trough and the rest can carry getting their bennies.

        Jeremiah says:

        Agreed with eligible voters not going to vote, I have posted ad nauseam on this blog about it, you can understand it when you live in a one party area as I do, a very large Liebore majority a little like Wythenshawe and Sale, the only way way is proportional representation and I think Dave Boy will regret not bringing that in. All parliamentary constituencies should be marginal ones, a vain wish, then probably we would get more action and the MPs might actually work for their constituents. Just think, no more jobbies for life constituencies as per Yeo, no parachuting complete strangers into areas because they are favoured by party headquarters, it will keep the little darlings on their toes or they will be out.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
