“If the Government were serious about this problem, they would give local authorities the power to tackle excess second home ownership. They have totally failed to discourage this practice, and must act now.”
If she does get a bit lonely this new limited edition product should rekindle some memories…
The money is earmarked to balance up our tilted democracy blah blah blah, more likely it will be needed to pay off the dirty money defrauded by the LibDems biggest donor. The Electoral Commission has put out a statement
“Under section 58 of the Political Parties and Referendums Act 2000, the commission has the power to apply to a court for forfeit to the Consolidated Fund an amount equal to the value of any impermissible donation.
“We are considering the evidence and expect to reach a decision on whether to apply for such an order in the next few weeks.”
The LibDems are bleating that
“Our independent auditors, having seen legal advice, have been satisfied that we do not need to make any provision for repayment of these funds.”
They must be the same auditors who calculated Charlie Kennedy’s election losing Local Government Financing Plans…
Clearly the Guardian’s bosses are determined to break any strike by going around the union. Guido has offered to round up a crack team of bloggers for Georgina Henry to scab in the event of a strike. Successful bloggers like Tim Worstall, Devil’s Kitchen, Dizzy, who knows maybe some of the boys at Samizdata might help if Georgina asks nicely. These are all proven writers who would bring a different perspective and a high traffic following. Given how much traffic share Comment is Free gets in comparison to say Iain Dale and Guido, it will probably give them a boost. Of course we would need to be on the same daily rate as Alan Rusbridger…
No. I have got Bindmans on to the mockers. Iain Dale (filthy homophobe) he got a letter. He took it down. Ros Taylor at the Guardian, they got a letter and they have taken it down. No, no, no. Who is mocking now? Frightened of me all of them. Nobody is going to write spoof diaries about me and get away with it. I am Chris Bryant.
An easy mistake to make because Chris Bryant is beyond satire. Bryant threatened to sue Iain and demanded that his legal bills were paid for sending him a characteristically pompous threatening letter. Iain told him not to be silly and get lost – it was an innocent mistake. Bryant is now sulking.
