We Rallied Against the Debt

According to the BBC 350 of us turned out to Rally Against the Debt, a petition passed round gathered 400 signatures so the actual number is likely nearer 500. The Fawkes girls were unimpressed with their first political demonstration and even their father’s speech until they saw a chihuahua dog which made their day. It was as promised, pretty civilised and good natured, there were no riots, arrests or any trouble – apart from 3 counter protestors. The after party at the Westminster Arms went on till late…

Why the Laws Punishment Was So Severe

Neo-Guido took on Mark Pack of LibDemVoice last night on the BBC News Channel to discuss why Laws was dished out the humiliating and potentially career ending punishment:

One thing really stands out in the Parliamentary Commissioners report:

“In July 2007, Mr Laws and his landlord moved to a second London property. This was financed in part by a gift of £99,000 from Mr Laws. Mr Laws remortgaged his Somerset property to provide this sum.”

Laws “gifted” the £99,000 to his boyfriend. Effectively he put up part of the deposit. Of course if he had an ongoing interest in the property he would not have been able to claim for the “rent”. Laws deliberately and knowingly played the system to allow him to claim rent to pay for a property in which he would have had an interest if his £99,000 share hadn’t been technically written off as a “gift”. No amount of spin that he could have saved the taxpayer money if he had lived elsewhere can disguise the fact this stinks. A seven day suspension is a humiliation, but Laws, Grender and Pack etc should be glad it’s wasn’t seven months at Her Majesty’s Pleasure…

The NO Campaign’s Secret Weapon

As polling day approaches, the No campaign have deployed their most devastating attack on AV yet.

Signed, sealed, delivered. 

Keynes vs. Hayek, Round Two

Maybe instead of arguing with Guido on Twitter, Will Straw should just step into the ring. Will always advocates more government taxing, borrowing and spending, Guido always advocates lower taxes, balanced budgets and an end to subsidies and bail-outs. Here is the rap version:

Moonwalking Politician Actually Quite Good

Edmond Talmacean has inspired national headlines in Romania with his Michael Jackson-style moonwalking and impersonations of the late dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. “Dancing is another kind of political message to appeal to the younger generation, that it is good to have fun … that you can go to a disco and dance,” says 40-year-old Edmond. Conservative Partidul Democrat-Liberal bosses have ordered him to tone it down with Prime Minister Emil Boc declaring the routine was more suited to “showbiz” than politics. That he is one of the most popular politicians in Romania with the highest name recognition is evidence that the Guidoisation of politics is global…

Edmond’s populist, centre-right Partidul Democrat-Liberal is the largest party in the Romanian coalition government. Yes there is such a thing as a popular centre-right Liberal Democratic coalition government party, all Clegg needs to do is get Cable moonwalking. That is if Cable doesn’t just walk

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
