Half a Million Sign Petition Against MPs’ Pay Rise

Looks like one poor sod has not taken the election result very well. They think they’ve worked out what went wrong over at 38 Degrees:

A RIGGED GENERAL ELECTION.
TO: HARRIET HARMAN.

Harriet Harman must force an enquiry into this General election result. We are convinced it was rigged.

But rigged or not, the election was won on misinformation. And it needs to be sorted.

Why is this important?

One minute the BBC TV media were stating that it was neck and neck between Labour and the Tory’s, the next minute the Tory’s were zooming…That cannot be right ?

Also the Lib-Dems were crushed, why werent the Tory’s equally so ?

Perhaps they missed the bit where the LibDems were crushed by the Tories…

Terrifyingly, 1,066 special citizens have agreed with this loon.

Meanwhile over in the reality based community 440,740 people have signed a petition again MPs getting a pay rise.

Uber Chiefs Detained in Socialist France

CIVYupwWgAE9gKQ

In scenes more reminiscent of Caracas than mainland Europe, AFP reports that the CEO of Uber France and the General Manager of Uber (Europe) have been arrested:

“The spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor says two Uber managers have been taken into custody for questioning over “illicit activity” linked to the ride-hailing company’s low cost service.”

Like in an Ayn Rand dystopia, arrested for providing customers with a better, cheaper service at the behest of unions.

Labour Shadow Minister Present at Failed Commons Invasion

unnamed (1)

Yesterday’s lame attempt to storm the Commons by protestors did not get very far, but has upset MPs no end. After disability campaigners tried to force their way into the chamber during PMQs, Central Lobby was locked down. The Men in Tights are reviewing security, and there is lots of harrumphing about the direct action being beyond the pale.

So, odd then that Labour’s Shadow Disability Minister was front and centre of the action. What exactly was Kate Green doing yesterday, because the cameras clearly show her not trying very hard to stop the invasion. Awkward…

Continui-tea Miliband: Kinnock Spotted in Burnham HQ

tea

A co-conspirator over at 83 Victoria Street reports that Neil Kinnock was in the building this morning.

The Westminster serviced office block hosts both Liz Kendall and Andy Burnham’s leadership campaign teams, and no prizes for guessing where the windbag was heading.

The Burnham camp are playing down the meeting, with a source telling Guido that it was just a cup of tea and that the former leader will have “no role, formal or informal” on the campaign: “Andy meets with people from across the party”.

Kinnock didn’t pop in to see Liz though…

Labour Councillor Defends Auschwitz / Austerity Comparison

Labour councillor Bernadette Fisher could have said that she retweeted this tasteless Auschwitz photoshop by accident.

She could have said she didn’t look properly before clicking.

She could have said she was hacked.

All three would have been better than the defence she has given to her local paper.

“The point of the tweet is to see the consequences of austerity are grave for people. It’s a pretty extreme message but I think that if you ignore the needs of the poor what are we doing to them? They are trying to make a big thing of it but I am confident of the morality behind my decision to retweet it.

I am not intending to offend, I am intending to make a political point. I feel very strongly about this and I think it’s not good enough that all we are doing is dealing with the deficit. The danger is that you systematically destroy those things that make us so proud.

“I have all kinds of people tweeting back and they are all on the right. Whoever they are, they are doing it for a political reason. They are doing it to have a go at a Labour councillor and that’s what happens when you are doing a tweet and put yourself out there.”

No, Bernadette, they aren’t having a go because you “put yourself out there”, they are having a go because you compared government policy to the Holocaust.

Her critics are on the left too: the former chair of her local Labour party has called for her to resign:

A UKIP councillor would have gone by now…

UPDATE: And there it is:

No, 250,000 People Did Not Protest On Saturday

_83757829_de27-1

Numbers have never been a strong point for the left. Hence why Owen Jones and his new mate Charlotte Church were pushing the quarter of a million figure for Saturday’s march in London. It’s nonsense.

Even lefties are sceptical:

While the police will not publicly give a figure, a source tells Guido this morning that Parliament Square can hold around 20,000 people. With a bit of overflow, the working estimate is around 25,000…

250,000 would fill not only Parliament Square but Whitehall and Trafalgar Square too. Twice over.

In order for the comrades to have achieved 250,000 people on their march, 5,000 people would have to have left the starting point at Bank every minute – almost 100 per second – in the time they claimed to have achieved this fantasy number. “A tight military formation couldn’t even do that,” Guido’s public order numbers bod derides. 

Are the lefties really saying they had the same number of people who marched on Washington in 1963 at the height of the Civil Rights movement – put at between 200,000 and 250,000:

Landscape

Is Owen Jones really saying he is a bigger draw than Martin Luther King?

250,000 was also the figure given for Obama’s famous speech in Berlin in 2008:

obama

Notice a difference in the size of the crowd?

This is what 250,000 people looked like when Paul McCartney played in Mexico in 2012.

Shall we look at Saturday’s picture again?

_83757829_de27-1

Looks about a tenth of the size… pretty shoddy journalism for the papers to just regurgitate the number given by the People’s Assembly Against Austerity without so much as a raised eyebrow. Continue reading

Unite Labour Councillor in Sick Auschwitz Austerity Slur

Having served 25 years as a national secretary for Unite, career comrade Bernadette Fisher finally got the call up to be a Labour councillor in Whitstable in May.

Six weeks into the job and she is already retweeting tasteless photoshops of Auschwitz:

When she isn’t agitating, Bernadette spends her spare time working as a yoga teacher. Not very “om”…

Voice of Angel to Critics: “Hopefully Your Dick Will Fall Off”

church

Charlotte Church spent her Saturday marching with the People’s Assembly Against Austerity – whose aims include “increasing taxes on the super-rich” and “closing tax loopholes”.

As Guido revealed in the Sun on Sunday, this is the same Cardiff crooner who is the director of five companies all registered to the London address of Thomas Harris Accountants.

Alligator Wine Records Ltd, Charlotte Church Ltd, PACC Music Limited, Bounce Publishing Limited and Chick Flicks Ltd are all conveniently based at the firm’s offices in Merton Abbey Mills. Thomas Harris boast on their website:

“Lowering and deferring tax is, of course, a key aim… We can make your capital as tax-efficient as possible, taking advantage of allowances and reliefs of which many people are unaware, and ensuring you pay no more tax than you need… [including] tax-efficient gifting strategies”

What would her new comrades say about such sharp practices?

Seems Charlotte is finding her newfound critics rather taxing:

Voice of an angel, vocabulary of a drain…

Anti-Austerity Protesters Turn on Russell Brand

Not quite the reception Russell Brand was hoping for in the VIP area at yesterday’s anti-austerity protest:

“F**k Russell Brand… He should not be on the stage here… You have no f**king place here, you’re disgusting…”

“You’re a turncoat, Brand…

Quote of the Day

Charles Clarke says Cameron is the most successful PM for over a century…

“Under Margaret Thatcher the Conservatives gained 99 seats. They lost 211 under John Major, gained one under William Hague, quickly and wisely got rid of Ian Duncan-Smith, gained 32 under Michael Howard and have so far gained 133 under David Cameron who, to the great surprise of many (including senior Conservatives), has turned out to be the most electorally successful Tory leader since 1900.”
