Will Lewis Partying Like Its 2009
Organising “Telegraph MPs’ Expenses Re-Union Party”

telegraph-exs
In what will surely add to the feeling that it is 2009 all over again, Guido hears that Will Lewis, formerly editor of the Daily Telegraph during its MPs’ expenses exposing high point, is organising an “MPs Expenses Re-Union Party” in May to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the award winning scandal. Which seems as fresh today as ever…

Awkwardly Will is now Chief Creative Officer of rivals the News Corporation. Guido looks forward to his invitation…

      Lets Get Them Out

      Maria’s expense claim hysteria
      Reminded me of Dave’s Wisteria
      And Duck houses on ponds that float
      We even paid to clean a moat
      Yet we must never make a fuss
      One rule for them and one for us

      The time has come to make a stand
      MPs greed is out of hand
      The people need to get a grip
      Turf this lot out and vote UKIP
      With the election drawing near
      Farage the man all MPs fear

      So look out now for dirty tricks
      With smears and lies thrown in the mix
      With racist slurs and nazi claims
      Designed to undermine our aims
      The peoples Army is on track
      UKIP will get our country back

      VOTE UKIP

      In our world you get sacked and your future ruined for stealing under £2.00, in their world they steal thousands, often tens of thousands and they get to say sorry and there is no question of them losing their jobs or going to prison.

      Two different outcomes for two very different classes of people, this is the reality.

        The spirit of the Conservative Party has moved to UKIP. Nigel is really the heir to Margret Thatcher not Dave. There is no desire in the current Conservative Party to tackle the real issues that the country faces. Dave really is appalling in that he like Millbean speaks the language of commitment without the slightest intention of keeping his word. May elections are the best chance in while to really piss on the elites self satisfied face. Don’t miss the chance!

            Under Duplicitous Dave the Dunce of Downing Street the Tories remain the nasty party, only there for their own benefit and completely out of touch with normal people. We have a golden opportunity next month to kick him in the balls for his broken promises, and an even greater chance to kick him and his ilk completely out of office in 2015.

      I believe that Blair’s expenses were shredded just before The Telegragh shone light on the terrible scandal. Another thing, I remember in the not so distant past that Mandelson had to borrow a large some of money in order to get a mortgage. Now he is a multi-millionaire. How is this possible? I don’t remember him taking a job. Where did these millions come from? Guido-please find out.

    Not repaying THE money, repaying SOME money, about 10% of half of what was recommended, so about 5% of the total.

    Do you get the idea that “Call me a C*nt” Dave is not the master of his own destiny? Even a rich boy whose daddy paid for the best PPE Degree money could buy doesn’t need the I.Q. of pond life to know that Mrs Miller will have about the same effect on the Electorate as an outbreak of Ebola virus (which we will probably be getting next week as well!). But he has been told to tough it out and give the finger to the voters. Now, if the Establishment has decided that “Call me a C*nt” has served his purpose, this is the sort of advice they would give him. Like telling the head-case in the class to stop a bus with their head, and they go and do it!
    Makes you wonder what future the Establishment has mapped out for her when she comes out. Can’t see her emulating Profumo, and all he did was mislead Parliament not put his hand in the till. I think she should work in a leper colony – so, it’s decided….she keeps the job!

    Time and time again he has displayed a complete detachment from the realities of life and the moral responsibilities of his colleagues.
    He simply does not understand public opinion in any senses of the words and clearly thinks he is above it.
    He is so extraordinarily weak that he is now way beyond a joke and if he loses the election, it will entirely his fault – his and nobody else’s.
