Betting Suspended on Sky News Pol Ed

Paddy Power and Ladbrokes have suspended betting on the next Sky News political editor. It makes sense that if it is an internal hire we will hear imminently. Though the complexity of an external appointment may delay the news a little longer…

UPDATE: Who wouldn’t want the glamour of the job?

      Nope he’s right technically as any budget tax proposals will be effective from 6 April 2015

    This is about as exciting as it gets then? Boring. Who worries about Sky television anyway? Its overpriced rubbish that without he football would not survive. Channel Four news far better.

    Sky News = Political sycophants

    Painful to watch hard to believe peppered with mind numbing commercials and political dimwits long on politically correct opinions, short on hard hitting factual content.

    This budget I have decided to try being a Tory. Radical i know, but its worth a go. So I have instructed Oiky Osbo to

    1. Raise the 45% tax band to £172,000
    2. Introduce a 30% tax band at £38,000 – £171,999
    3. Freeze the BBC licence fee for 5 years followed by privatisation.
    4. End all non trauma related cosmetic surgery on the NHS
    5. Capping household benefits at £20,000
    6. Scrapping the zero and £30 vehicle tax rates as they are silly and starting the bands at £65

    This still leaves a shortage of £4bn to budget so i propose scrapping every fake charity, government lobbying itself and capping Quango payment salaries at £14,000, that members of the public will be invited to sit upon.

    Still £2bn short I propose we immediately grant Scotland independence, with any Scot granted automatic right of settlement in the remainder of the UK if they so wish.

    That leaves a £15bn surplus for each year which will be used solely to pay off our existing debt until that debt is removed.
    I will enshrine in law legislation today that ensures this or any future government is required to hold a referendum on our membership of the European union within 1 year of the 2015 election. Failure to do so will automatically cause another election.

    That is enough for today .

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
