Guardianista Fat Cats Tighten Belts 10%

Do you think Guido’s relentless goading of  the media fat cats Alan Rusbridger (Guardian editor) and Carolyn McCall (GMG CEO) has touched a nerve?  Guido has taken every opportunity available to point out their lavish bonuses and rewards for failure.

The very same things their staff criticise in the paper when writing about City fat cats:

They have announced they will not be taking their bonuses this year and in addition will be taking a 10% pay cut.  Rusbridger will have to scrape by on a £1/3 million while McCall will be reduced to a £1/2 million pittance.  GMG is expected to make a big loss this year…

MP's Expenses Scans Update :£10,000 Reward Offered for the Truth

They are being hawked around again. The Sun (as well as The Times) has been offered the disks, but are worried about handling “stolen” goods. Sources at the Mail on Sunday and News of the World say that have not been offered the scans and would in any case have to consider legal obstacles.  So much for a fearless free press.

After the last story a number of co-conspirators contacted Guido suggesting we have a whip round.  If you want to pledge support in the comments, feel free.

To the person who has the disks, what you have is of great public interest, what you have done is heroic, Guido and his co-conspirators will pay £10,000 cash in gratitude for the disks – today – no questions asked.  Call 0709 284 0531.

Jury Finds Jacqui Guilty

Jury Team, the new internet-based party set-up by Paul Judge to bring independent candidates with clean hands into politics, is making waves by running American-style attack ads in Jacqui Smith’s constituency – they will run online in Redditch local newspapers from tomorrow morning.

The advert is not that aggressive by American standards, by British standards it is, so much so that the newspapers in which it is running took legal advice before accepting the advert.

Iain Dale underestimates the anti-political climate that they are trying to tap into, anyone can stand in the party’s primaries. They are a small party but the internet means they can grow fast.  The Italian mani pulite movement in the early 90s started small and led eventually to the demise of the corrupt First Republic and the collapse of the old party structures.  When you have David Cameron proposing parliamentary reforms which will result in MPs pocketing more taxpayers cash you really wonder if these mavericks could go mainstream.  It happened in Italy…

Quote of the Day

John Curtice on fiscal policy:

“Attitudes to taxation and spending are basically counter-cyclical. If a government comes in and tries to reduce spending and taxation, after a while people will get worried about the state of public services. If a government increases taxation and public spending, after a while they’ll get concerned about increasing taxation…. In as much as there are lots of ideologues out there who think the state should be this proportion of GDP, they’re all wrong. Because the public’s view is counter-cyclical to the recent experience. It’s basically impossible to satisfy the public.”
