Gordon Funds Jet-Set Lifestyle With £10,000-a-Week ‘Expenses’
Brown Office Gives Just 1 in 4 Pounds Raised to Charity

UPDATE 21 March 2014:  The above video was removed from the BBC iPlayer archive at Gordon Brown’s insistence. This is a copy hosted on our own offshore server rather than any third party provider.

———————-

Since 2010 Gordon Brown has submitted more Press Complaints Commission complaints than he has delivered speeches in the House, meaning you won’t read about the financial affairs of the Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown in the papers. So Guido was pleased to have the opportunity to share the story with a wider audience on the Daily Politics this lunchtime.

  • Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown has £10,000-a-week expenses
  • Not a registered charity, two thirds of funds raised spent on expenses
  • Less than  £1 million given to charity out of over £3 million raised
  • Vanity project lets  Gordon and Sarah enjoy jet-set premier life-style of first class flights and five star hotels

Brillo asked the pertinent question of Gordon: “Mentally, is he out of it?”

Labour’s Spoof Tory Facebook Memories

Pretty good attack video, light touch, amusing and not too laboured. This has Blue State Digital’s fingerprints all over it. Better production values than we have seen recently, will it win any votes?

US Assistant Secretary of State: “F**k the EU”

According to Kyiv Post, this is a leaked recording of US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt and US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland discussing a plan for UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon to help sort out the situation in the country:

Assistant Secretary of State Nuland: “That would be great I think to help glue this thing and have the UN help glue it and, you know, f**k the EU.”

Ambassador Pyatt: “Exactly.”

Always good to hear our transatlantic allies share our values…
