Diamond Hits Back With No Jerk Rule

Yesterday Nell Diamond caused a stir telling George Osborne and Ed Miliband to “hold my dick“, but this afternoon Daddy Diamond taught his daughter a lesson by enforcing his strict “no jerk rule“. With Bob explaining to the Treasury Select Committee how he got “frustrated with his technology“, the Lobby didn’t need an excuse to behave like schoolboys:

Brian wouldn’t stand for this smut…

VIDEO: Farage Batters Van Rompuy (Again)

“With everyone of your predictions it goes on getting worse, I’m sorry sir you don’t have the presence, the credibility or the standing for the international markets to believe you can provide a solution. And Mr Barroso here, who stood up at the G20 and said “we don’t need any lessons on democracy”. Says the unelected president of the European Commission… You’ve made yourselves an international laughing stock. You don’t have any credibility.”

Tax Cheating Danny Alexander

Following the Jimmy Carr crash last week Danny Alexander took to our screens to attack tax avoiders. That’s the very same Danny Alexander who conned the Treasury out of over £100,000 by flipping his home back during the expenses scandal. Beaker shamelessly registered the property as his second home when he became an MP in 2005, despite admitting to Revenue and Customs that it was in fact his main residence. The trick allowed him to claim over £37,000 of taxpayers’ money doing up the London pad over the following two years. In 2007 Danny then sold up for £300,000, using a tax loophole to avoid paying the then 40% capital gains tax. His accountant certainly earned his – or should that be our – money. 

Now Alexander is laying into the likes of Carr and Gary Barlow, lambasting tax avoiders as the moral equivalent of benefits cheats. People in flipped houses…

Loony Lefty Loses It Live On BBC With Toby Young

Part-time media studies teacher turned radical class warrior Francis Gilbert did the Local Schools Network no favours last night when he had a meltdown live on the BBC News Channel.

Guido thinks any head who employs Gilbert should take a look this.

Think of the children

UPDATE: In you couldn’t make it up territory: Francis Gilbert is married to The Times literary editor Erica Wagner. They sent their son to private school…

Shadow Schools Minister Kevin Brennan Fails Maths Test

Shadow Schools Minister Kevin Brennan had a mathematical nightmare in the Commons earlier, telling the House that three out of ten equalled 60%. Things only got worse for the Labour man, who then laughably accused his opposite number of being “not very good at maths“. It’s back to the classroom for him…

Before Miliband spoke, a school choir sang ‘Fix You’ by Coldplay. The first verse of which goes like this:

“When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse”



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?
