Chris Huhne: Crime and Punishment

Some pretty brutal headlines for Huhne this morning. Well done to Channel 4 News for digging out this old footage of his tough stance on crime and punishment:

99 criminals out of every 100 get away with it apparently. He is the 1%…

WATCH: Socialist Rapist Party Comrade Resigns, Sings Les Mis

Pure gold from Jack Brindelli, a precious Socialist Worker Party member who has resigned from the party following the rape scandal earlier this month. Brindelli is a self-styled modern-day Lenin who fought the bourgeois NUS and compares himself to Rousseau and Sartre. The ending is fantastically camp and over-the-top. The stage beckons comrade…

Iain Dale Blames Media for Politicians’ Unpopularity

Nothing to do with their money grubbing ways…

UPDATE: Iain posts in the comments

“Not sure which of your monkeys posted this, but did they actually listen to it? Probably not, it would seem, otherwise it wouldn’t have such a preposterous headline.”

Well, Iain, the Organ Grinder heard you say “I think the cynical way that people in the media deal with politics and politicians is corrosive.” On his new blog (we are paying attention) he said

“Our public life is being corrupted by a permanent sneer and cynical outlook by those who report on it. Yes, to some extent it’s the fault of those who serve in public life. The trouble is that the way politics is now reported in the print and broadcast media, it’s a wonder anyone wants to go into it. And this is why increasingly we will get a political class made up of geeks and obsessives. Normal people, people who actually want to do good, will turn their efforts elsewhere, and who can blame them?”

So the headline to do justice to Iain’s argument should perhaps have read “Iain Dale blames corrosive media for creating political class made up of unpopular weirdos”. Happy Iain?

WATCH: David Ward Car Crash Sky “Jews” Interview

David Ward has gone rogue and just had a Mel Gibson moment live on Sky News:

 “I’m accusing the Jews who did it,  [nervous laugh] so if you’re a Jew and you did not do it I’m not accusing you. I’m saying that those Jews who did that and continue to do it have not learned those lessons. If you are a Jew and you do not do those things and have never done those things then I am not criticising you.”

He goes on to say that he can think of no better day than Holocaust Memorial Day to raise these issues. A LibDem spokesman tells Guido “he is very much acting on his own”…

Here is how the story unfolded:

How Dave Promised “The Good News Will Keep Coming”

Back in October Dave gloated that “the good news will keep coming”, today GDP is down 0.3%. Ed Balls won’t let him forget that complacency when he tours the television studios later this morning. Yesterday’s headlines seem pretty far away now…
