Labour Distances Miliband From Dodgy Bercow Donor
Denial that Sassoon is “an Adviser” to Ed, Despite Her Claims


A spokesman for Ed Miliband tells Guido that Ed has met Farah Sassoon on several occasions “socially”, but that she is in no way an adviser to the Labour leader, despite her claims to the contrary.

Sassoon says she does different things when she meets different people, at different times in the evening. Yet one fact is very clear…

The Labour donor and business woman has been given a pass personally by John Bercow, who now admits she is funding his re-election campaign.

That does not pass the smell test. Pun intended…

    Anyone who knows me knows well that if this were true all those notes in my hand would be fifties. I wouldn’t sully myself with lower denominations which poor people might have regularly handled

    To suggest otherwise demeans my very high office (when I stand on a box) and makes Parliament seem cheapo (when if fact its very expensive)

    The Times of India tells you what the BBC won’t:

    Battling Palestinian militants in Gaza two years ago, Israel found itself pressed from all sides by unfriendly Arab neighbors to end the fighting.

    Not this time.

    After the military ouster of the Islamist government in Cairo last year, Egypt has led a new coalition of Arab states — including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan — that has effectively lined up with Israel in its fight against Hamas, the Islamist movement that controls the Gaza Strip.

    The Arab states’ loathing and fear of political Islam is so strong that it outweighs their allergy to Benjamin Netanyahu,” the prime minister of Israel, said Aaron David Miller, a scholar at the Wilson Center in Washington and a former Middle East negotiator under several presidents.

    This is an important development. Of course, these Arab states are not exactly shining models of democracy…

    It always takes them a bit longer to learn, but eventually even Arabs tire of living amongst rubble. The Middle East is at the point where the sane nutters are regaining control from the insane nutters. It helps that the insane nutters have no regard for their own lives and know nothing of military tactics. On a long enough time line their numbers can only go down. But it won’t last. Eventually the sane nutters take the piss too much and the ‘people’ if you can call them that, turn turn back to the insane nutters and it all starts again.

    that’s because they- women with kids on their own, and disabled are the biggest takers of welfare hand-outs, people trying to claim more than the average wage of working people, or claimants who have been thrown off the system are the only ones hit so far as I can tell- (unless you are disabled with an income over £60,000.00) who are worst off (the bedroom tax doesn’t apply to the disabled, although it’s still part of labours war cry, that hasn’t been effectively pulled apart by the media). All those photographed in a wheel chair can do a desk job on a computer from home for instance- where are the quangos paid to find them the work?.

    Changes in 2014

    Changes to 3 housing grant schemes were announced in January 2014. The changes came into effect on 27 February 2014, so any applications received before this date are being handled under the earlier rules. The main changes to the Housing Adaptation Grant for People with a Disability are:

    The maximum income threshold has been reduced to €60,000 (previously €65,000)
    The percentages of approved costs covered by the grant have been adjusted on a sliding scale (but the maximum grant stays at €30,000, or 95% of approved costs)
    Extension works will only qualify if no suitable cheaper option is feasible
    An occupational therapist must confirm that the works are fit for purpose and that they meet the applicant’s needs in the most economic way
    Income of all household members will now be included in the means test (though Carer’s Allowance should be disregarded)
    Applicants must prove that they have complied with the Local Property Tax

    The Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government is preparing revised guidelines for the 3 schemes.

    Just like an Ebola – sufferer’s blood vessels as they rupture. Just bursting at the seams. I liked that Professor that was wheeled on and said he had more likelihood of being killed cycling home that night than being killed by Ebola. What he should have said was that if he got knocked off his bike (which, as he doesn’t ride one, improves the odds no end) and was taken to casualty he would probably die from MRSA or something else he would catch at casualty THAT night. As for next week he wasn’t too sure what would kill him quickest. As for Hunt and the NHS being ready to cope with Ebola! Yes, sure. You could say that you were more likely to be bumped off casually by the NHS at Mid Staffs than Ebola, but it would be about even-Stevens by a week or two and definitely another winner for Ebola by four weeks. What, exactly, is the NHS ready with? Panic? a JCB to bury the dead in quick scrapes in the ornamental gardens? Nothing?

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
