84% of Public Say Clegg Was Stitched Up

At close of play almost 2,000 readers have voted in Guido’s poll over whether that really was a nine year old child grilling the Deputy Prime Minister on LBC this morning. 84% smell BS…

The station are sticking to their guns though:

“The LBC production team spoke to the boy and his mum, and we were confident the caller was genuine. Since the show, we’ve spoken to Rohan’s headteacher who confirmed he made the call from school in the presence of a teacher, and we’re completely satisfied he has a genuine interest in the issue.”

Show us the boy!

    If anyone deserved stitching up, it’s Clegg.

    Aye, show us the boy.

    Another nail in Hollande’s coffin and the French arms industry:-)

    WTF the Russians are doing farming out the defence of mother Russia to a bunch of cheese eating surrender monkeys is beyond me.

    The French warships are probably designed to sail in reverse and fly a white flag when under fire.

      Maybe for the same reason the government is farming out defence production (pure on cost you understand)

        Michael Fallon ( Conservative ) BBC website Re: 600 armoured vehicles.

        “US taxpayers won’t go on picking up the cheque if we choose to prioritise social welfare spending when the threats are on our doorstep.”

        Perhaps we should fire the unemployed and economically inactive people at ISIS ( sorry IS – sorry ISAL ) as it would be cheaper?

        ” Can anyone one tell how long to World War Three?

        I wanna know – I’ve got to book me ‘oliday ”

    I really couldn’t care less about Clegg, he’s helped to screw the country up and the less I hear/see of him the better, bog off Clegg, we want the country to recover, you don’t help.

      Another fucking tard with another fucking tumble weed blog. Do you even know how cringe worthy and embarrassing it is to read such a sad, desperate plug for a sad, desperate blog that no fucker is ever going to read. Do yourself a favour and delete the blog, all of it, it is taking up precious internet space that could be used for beheadding videos or Roxy Raye anal prolapse clips. I particularly like the ones where she fucks her own inside out rectum.

    The French mayor of Calais says that the UK is not doing enough to stop migrants arriving in Calais. Is this french logic?

      Owen Jones says:

      Slightly confused; immigrants want to shun the glorious Socialist paradise of France and instead come to sick capitalist Britain run by evil Tory scum? If they weren’t immigrants (and therefore diverse, multicultural and wonderful), I’d say they were as thick as shit.

      We don’t need their kind here. Except we do, obviously, because they’re diverse.

        It’s the benefits init?

        ‘Cause them benefits will allow them asylum seekers enough money to return, from time to time, to their dangerous war-torn countries that they have fled from, for holidays, family weddings…and to get their daughters cut.

          The NHS should be more inclusive, diverse and multicultural by offering FGM as one of its core, free, services.

      You look after them, England doesn’t want them, time your country did it’s international duty and sent them back to the last country, besides a Socialist country like yours should be taking responsibility for these people.

      He has a point. If we left the EU and deported illegal immigrants immediately, thee would be fewer of them cluttering up Paris.

    Considering he stitched the Tory party up over boundary changes, who is he to complain?

    Clegg may be stitched up, but cannot force the child into the lime-light.

    Blame Labour, Vote UKIP :-D


    Vote UKIP :-D

      Look at them . Six technophobes round a meeting table in late 2014
      and not a smartphone or tablet in sight.

      They appear not even to know what use to make of the writing pads

      We are indubitably in good hands.

          Hammond is desperately trying to distract folk from Dave’s bald patch.

          Vote UKIP :-D


          • Tommy Testicles says:

            Look at the above comments readers, a love in by the biggest fucking arsehole pub bore wankers on this site. Was any comment above clever or insightful? Did any comment above offer anything to the discussion? No, of course not, just the usual sad sacks wanking off in public thinking they are on their own personal HIGNFY and that some political editor will offer them a column. I would say most readers here fucking detest the above posters and that Mr Guido should disclose their addresses and the general public should go round an shit in their fridges.


          • Dave could get a wig.

            Vote UKIP :-D

    What does the Tory Bucks Council have to say about yet more Muslim grooming gangs in Buckinghamshire?

    There have already been convicted grooming gangs in High Wycombe and Chesham. Now Aylesbury. Has Bucks Council been covering up child abuse?

    That was no 9 year old – it was Ed Miliband in a very tight jockstrap

    Cleggsmegg says:

    Clegg seemed a bit put out and suggested the boy had some help from someone else. Presumably Clegg wanted listeners to think “how dare the boy be assisted by someone else”…after all, it’s not at as though Clegg has a whole team of briefers and speechwriters paid for by the taxpayers to feed him statistics and tell him what to say before every public appearance.

    If that was a nine year old boy and not his Grannie, I’ll join the LibDems.
