Labour’s Sri Lanka Amnesia

Shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander says it was a ‘lack of judgement’, and Ed has written in the Tamil Guardian complaining that Cameron will not boycott this week’s Commonwealth summit in Sri Lanka, over the country’s human rights record after two decades of civil war. There is a coordinated attack by the opposition:

The former senior adviser on foreign affairs to Gordon Brown turned Miliband right-hand-man seems to have forgotten this one:

“UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown greets President Mahinda Rajapaksa of Sri Lanka and Sri Lanka’s Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama at Downing Street, London, ahead of the Commonwealth mini summit”

It’s almost as if Labour want to forget the past. Guido will have more on this subject later…

“Ex-Politician” Gordon Paid £349,501 in One Month

No wonder the Prime Mentalist has forgotten he is still an MP. In October alone he has declared payments for outside work of £349,501, including for speeches and junkets to Shanghai, Johannesburg, Monaco and New York. As ever Gordon warns the press:

“I am not receiving any money from this role personally. It is being held by the Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown for the employment of staff to support my ongoing involvement in public life.”

Presumably that’s the “ongoing involvement in public life” he cannot remember he is still supposed to be doing.

That “office” flies Gordon around the world first class and puts him up in five star hotels, refuses to disclose how much it gives to charity, how much it pays Sarah Brown, how much is sitting in its bank account for when he finally quits. Who does he think he’s kidding…

Prime Mentalist Going Loco Down in Acapulco

Parliament has a full schedule this week, so of course Gordon is instead jetting off to a Mexican party town to address a conference on the financial crisis. He has clearly brought the Curse of Jonah with him. Just this week Acapulco has been battered by storms and heavy flooding, if that wasn’t enough CNN reports on its recent “economic devastation”. It is also reportedly set to go bankrupt. Hurricane Jonah strikes again…

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…

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.”
