Jailed £19 Million Money Launderer Was Doomed

Community ‘hero’ Abid Hussain has been jailed for his part in a £19 million money laundering racket, working with crime gangs in the Middle East to smuggle drug money into the UK. It all started to go wrong for Abid (second from left next to Labour MP Fabian Hamilton, who gave him a character reference in court) after a trip to Downing Street in 2010:

He was doomed.

Former Prime Mentalist’s £1.37 Million Income Spin

Embarrassingly, the Member for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath has been found to be Parliament’s top outside earner, in absentia. The Guardian reports, sympathetically:

“Gordon Brown earned more than £1.37m from giving speeches around the world. Brown said the income supported an office that he uses to “support my ongoing involvement in public life”, with £600,000 going to charity and none of the money to him personally.”


That line again.

Leaving aside that no evidence is offered up for these charitable donations, the cost of a few staffers and some flights around the world does not cover the other half million. Either it has been paid down to Gordon or Sarah somehow, or it’s all just sitting there in the “Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown” bank accounts, meaning Gordon’s direct income from speaking is not being taxed as direct income. It’s dishonest either way.

UPDATE: Always happy to help, Guido pointed out the Metro’s incorrect headline:

Wouldn’t want Gordon’s spin catching on…

Liability Brown

It’s official: 71% of Scots say the Prime Mentalist is a liability. Readers of the Scotsman say Gordon’s attempt to take on the freedom fighters will do his cause more harm than good. It would be some Jonah curse…

Voters Still Blame Labour For Economic Woes

Tory strategists could be forgiven for worrying that after three years of little or no growth and a £120 billion spending black hole this year alone, Dave and George’s reliance on blaming Britain’s economic slump on the last Labour government might be wearing thin with voters. Apparently not.

A study by media agency OMD of over 2,000 adults from across the UK has found that 53% still blame the previous Labour government for Britain’s ongoing economic problems, compared with just 39% blaming the coalition. 39% say Gordon is the main culprit, with just 27% fingering Cameron and 23% Osborne. Numbers Downing Street will be clinging onto…

Gordon’s Miner Catastrophe

Scottish Coal has gone into provisional liquidation, with 600 people losing their jobs. Asset strippers have moved in, mines are being sold off and the business is winding up. What went wrong?

The doom-mongering Prime Mentalist was all smiles and full of good cheer as he visited Scottish Coal at St. Ninians in Fife last May:

“The Company and all those who work on the site should be very proud of what they are doing. I am sure that the project will be a big success and become a significant asset for our local area.”

Everything he touches…

David Cameron on political promiscuity…

“On May 7 you could go to bed with Nigel Farage and wake up with Ed Miliband. Not one bit of that works for me.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
