The Daily Mail
Three articles for the price of none. Can’t be fucking bad.
The first is about the £10,000 per annum pay rise that our useless, parasitic, wholly corrupt, sexual deviant politicians are set to pocket. That wage rise represents just under £3000 less than what a man working 40 hrs per week, 52 weeks a year earns on minimum wage.
Not that our piggy politicians have ever worked 40 hours a week in their lives. In fact, did you know that neither the useless cunt who represents me, The Right Horrible James Duddridge or his boss, the equally useless RT Horrible Cunt Cameron, will not even acknowledge receiving my communications?
There ought to be a law against that.
But have no fear that poor man! Working twice as long and twice as hard as those Pillocks of society MP’s of ours, is about to be rewarded. In October, you too are getting a wage rise. Not quite £10000 of course. Still, an extra £250 a year isn’t to be sniffed at is it?
According to the Daily Mail: “A senior MP feared they would be accused of having their ‘snouts in the trough’ but argued: ‘Voters may not like it, but if you pay peanuts you get monkeys.”
So, “voters may not like it” aye? Which is just another polite way of saying “fuck you”.
And then!… And then! The cheeky three dimensional skid mark had the absolute bare faced gall to say that “if you pay peanuts you get monkeys”.
True, I suppose.
But by the same token, if you pay, pampered, thieving, rich nonces, wholly undeserved, vastly inflated wages for doing fuck all, you also get 650 useless cunts taking the right fucking piss.
Honest to fucking god people. The cunts need hanging.
The second article is all about how The Cunt Cameron said he is prepared to run the country without, Nick Clegg following a series of rows.
Never mind the fact that the coke sniffing, knob end couldn’t run a tap, he was deadly serious when he said it… No fucking smile or fuck all.
A cue to enter Naughty Nigel somewhere along the line no doubt… The bent cunt will no doubt also ask Naughty Nigel for help too.
Article three is about the afore mentioned Dick Clegg, and that money he stole on behalf of his foreign wife. If Dick keeps upsetting the Cunt Cameron, Dick could well find this little embarrassing theft refusing to go away, don’t cha even know.
MPs may get £10k pay rise: But they say: ‘It’s not snouts in the trough – if you pay peanuts you get monkeys’
- Annual salaries would increase from £65,738 to £75,000
- May be staged of five years from 2015, after the General Election
- Officials could also demand that they give up their guaranteed pensions
- One senior MP describes salary as a ‘pitiful pay cheque’

MPs are in line for a pay rise of £10,000 a year – but they may have to give up their gold-plated pensions.
Annual salaries would increase from £65,738 to more than £75,000 in a move being considered by Commons officials.
A senior MP said he feared they would be accused of having their ‘snouts in the trough’ but argued: ‘Voters may not like it, but if you pay peanuts you get monkeys.’
The rise is expected to be recommended next month in a report by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA), which is now in charge of MPs’ pay and expenses.
Well-placed sources say IPSA believes MPs’ wages are well below those of equivalent professionals working in London such as accountants.
According to some insiders, officials believe a pay rise as high as 25 per cent – taking salaries to £82,172 – is needed to give MPs a fair deal.
But it is thought they may recommend a figure closer to £10,000 to try to minimise the anticipated public outcry.

- Support for UKIP reaches a record 19% as the party steals supporters from Labour and Tories – despite a gaffe-ridden month
- Education Secretary Michael Gove is heckled as headteachers pass vote of no confidence in his reforms
They may also suggest the rise is staged over five years from 2015, crucially, after the next General Election.
And to sweeten the pill for the public they are likely to demand that MPs give up their guaranteed pensions and switch to a less generous scheme.
Officials say that MPs will have to use most, if not all, of their expected pay rise to match their current pension deal.
Downing Street will be alarmed at the prospect of a big rise for MPs on the grounds that it would undermine David Cameron’s ‘we’re all in it together’ campaign to encourage other workers to make do with no increase or minimal rises of one per cent.
When MPs were asked by IPSA how much they thought they should be paid, one in three said they deserved more than £86,000 a year.
Speaker John Bercow has already warned the Prime Minister not to block a big pay rise for MPs because he is independently wealthy.
Mr Bercow said MPs resented party leaders blocking all increases in pay to ‘appease the public’ and urged them ‘not to feel the temptation to interfere’ with IPSA’s ruling.
Mr Cameron ordered MPs to vote down a one per cent rise last year and instructed Ministers to waive salary increases.
Mr Bercow said: ‘There is some historical resentment that party leaders who either had a higher salary by virtue of their office or who have had access to other sources of finance have been very quick to tell ordinary MPs what they should and shouldn’t be paid.
‘When you’ve got other means from whatever source, it’s quite easy to do that and I don’t think it’s clever or brave.
‘When IPSA decides what the rise – no rise, or low rise, or high rise – should be, it should take effect immediately.
‘The party leaders mustn’t do what they’ve always done. The generals have always abandoned the troops and engaged in a Dutch auction to appease the public by saying, “Well of course, I won’t take a rise. I will tell my colleagues that they shouldn’t take a rise”.’
In 2009, Mr Bercow said MPs should earn as much as a GP or council boss, many of whom earn in excess of £100,000, as their job had comparable ‘breadth, scope and contact with the public’.
A senior MP said: ‘We know we are going to see headlines of “snouts in the trough” but the issue of MPs’ low pay has to be resolved.
‘We got into this mess 25 years ago because we were frightened of being criticised by the press and public for giving ourselves a proper pay rise.
‘Instead, we were encouraged to claim more expenses under the counter. The expenses scandal ended all that and now we are left with a pitiful pay cheque. We are thousands of pounds a year worse off on a pay level that is a joke to any self-respecting London professional.
‘Voters may not like it but if you pay peanuts you get monkeys. Unless our pay goes up, the decline in the quality of people prepared to become MPs and Ministers will increase and the whole country will suffer.’
Cameron’s ‘prepared to run the country without Clegg’ following series of bitter rows
- Prospect of minority government could trigger early General Election
- Prepared to go without Clegg unless Tory-Lib Dem feuding ends
- But added he hopes to cling on to his ailing alliance with Mr Clegg

David Cameron has threatened to pull the rug from under his Coalition with Nick Clegg after a series of bitter rows that have rocked the Government.
The Prime Minister said he is prepared to run the country without his Deputy PM unless Tory-Lib Dem feuding that has paralysed his administration ends.
Mr Cameron added he hopes to cling on to his ailing alliance with Mr Clegg as they tackle the economic crisis and other vital issues together.
But in a move that could trigger an early General Election, he said: ‘The best way to do that is to continue with the Coalition, but if that wasn’t the case then we’d have to face the new circumstances in whatever way we should.’
The innocent-sounding ‘new circumstances’ he refers to are the sensational prospect of an end to the Coalition. It is the first time Mr Cameron has publicly aired his fears his political marriage to Mr Clegg, sealed with sunny optimism at their Rose Garden joint press conference in Downing Street three years ago, is about to end in divorce.
Revealing his frustration in a candid interview in Total Politics magazine, Mr Cameron said: ‘I’m here to deliver good government for the country and we’ve still got important work to do – paying down the deficit, turning round the economy, and all the rest of it.
‘What matters to me, though, is can we get things done? Can we improve the state of the country? Can we fulfil our manifesto?’
If not, he continued, he was ready to ‘face the new circumstances’ – in other words, break up with Mr Clegg and run a minority Tory Government. Potentially, that could cause far more chaos than any Coalition infighting.
It was the lack of a Commons majority in 2010 that forced Mr Cameron to team up with Mr Clegg. Without the backing of Lib Dem MPs, there are insufficient Conservative MPs to get Mr Cameron’s legislation through Parliament on their own.
In turn, that could force Mr Cameron to ask the Queen for permission to call an early General Election, instead of waiting until 2015, a key part of his 2010 pact with Mr Clegg.
Alternatively, Mr Cameron and Mr Clegg could agree to an amicable divorce, with the Lib Dem leader stepping down as Deputy PM but supporting the Tories on some issues, making it possible for Mr Cameron to cling on to power – for the time being.
It would allow them both to pursue their own separate manifestos in the run-up to the Election.
There are advantages to both leaders in a friendly split. Mr Clegg would get the chance to repair his battered reputation with Lib Dem activists. And Mr Cameron, although weakened, would be freed of constant bickering between Tory and Lib Dem Ministers and aides.
Mr Cameron’s comments follow reports that both he and Mr Clegg are facing up to going it alone in the run-up to the next Election.
In the Total Politics interview with Tory MP and author Rob Wilson, Mr Cameron vented his fury over the root cause of the Tory-Lib Dem schism – Mr Clegg’s U-turn on a pledge to back parliamentary boundary changes that would have made it easier for the Conservatives to win the next Election.
‘That was immensely frustrating,’ said Mr Cameron. ‘The Coalition has its frustrations, there’s no doubt about it, and we have disagreements. Sometimes those disagreements mean you can’t take actions in the areas that you want to.’
Mr Wilson said the PM’s comments could be a clear warning to Mr Clegg that he may be about to call an Election. A Downing Street spokesman said: ‘The Coalition will continue until 2015.’
New Labour? No, it’s more new Seekers as ‘tin-eared Ed begs, steals and borrows’
Ed Miliband’s economic policy has been savaged by his former guru as a ‘beg, steal and borrow’ approach, writes Glen Owen.
Lord Glasman told a private audience of activists the Labour leadership was showing ‘tin-eared contempt for the public’ by sticking to the left-wing belief that the Government should borrow billions to fund schools and hospitals.
And the Labour peer quoted The New Seekers’ 1972 Eurovision Song Contest entry Beg Steal Or Borrow to bolster his argument against Mr Miliband and Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls.
He said: ‘I think our position is like that 1970s terrible song . . . We’re going to beg, then we’re going to steal and then we’re going to borrow to get the money – that’s going to further humiliate people.’
Last night the Conservatives seized on the remarks as a sign of a ‘choreographed move’ at the top of the party to unseat Mr Balls – amid renewed speculation in the party about Mr Miliband’s leadership.
Lord Glasman’s remarks emerged days after a poll showed that Mr Miliband’s lead over the Tories had fallen to only three points.
Lord Glasman, one of Labour’s most influential thinkers, made his remarks in a private discussion on ‘reforming the public services’ at last week’s Progress conference, at which senior party figures gathered to discuss tactics for winning the next Election.
He condemned the Miliband- Balls approach for showing ‘this tin-eared kind of contempt for the public that still permeates – no, no, no, if you spend more it will be better’.
He added: ‘I think the State should be helping you help your mum – not we will help, we will take care of your mum. We’ve got to partner up with people.’
His intervention comes as Mr Miliband faces increasing pressure to flesh out the party’s economic policies. He admitted for the first time three weeks ago that Labour would have to borrow billions of pounds to fund its policies.
When The Mail on Sunday contacted Lord Glasman last night, he burst out laughing and said: ‘It just came to me suddenly – beg from the IMF, steal from the poor and borrow the rest.’
Asked if he realised his comments would be seen as a direct attack on the Miliband-Balls economic strategy, he said: ‘Well, we don’t even know what that is.

Clegg officials ordered to hand over key emails following pressure over his role in obtaining funding for charity linked to his wife Miriam
- Booktrust received £12 million after lobbying from one of Clegg’s aides
- MPs have demanded an inquiry into how the payment was secured

Nick Clegg was last night facing fresh pressure over his role in obtaining funding for a charity linked to his wife Miriam after the Liberal Democrat leader’s officials were ordered to hand over key emails to Britain’s data watchdog.
The demand by Christopher Graham, the Information Commissioner, means the Cabinet Office will be forced to release to him a pile of private correspondence relating to the £12 million Government grant received by Booktrust last year.
The Mail on Sunday revealed in December that the charity received the money after one of Mr Clegg’s aides lobbied for it.
This meant the grant could be given direct – rather than having to compete with other charities.
This newspaper then made a Freedom of Information request to the Government for the release of emails sent between officials relating to the deal.
But this was blocked by the Cabinet Office on the grounds that their publication would ‘prejudice the effective conduct of public affairs’.
It is understood that the emails show senior civil servants expressed concern about the way the bidding process had apparently been manipulated to benefit Booktrust, which gives away books to promote reading among children.
Sources in Mr Clegg’s Cabinet Office have claimed the aide, Matt Sanders, had referred in conversation to the fact Miriam Clegg had hosted a lavish function for Booktrust weeks earlier.
Mrs Clegg, who uses her professional name Miriam Gonzalez Durantez, hosted the event in October at one of London’s most grandiose venues, historic Lancaster House.
At the charity’s 20th anniversary party, Spanish-born Mrs Clegg said she fell in love with Britain through reading Enid Blyton’s stories and was keen to encourage her three sons to read.
She quoted Roald Dahl’s Oompa Loompa song, from Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, ‘So please, oh please, we beg, we pray, Go throw your TV set away, And in its place you can install, A lovely bookshelf on the wall.’
Now, after an appeal by The Mail on Sunday to Mr Graham, a £140,000- a-year former BBC employee who previously ran the Advertising Standards Authority, the Information Commissioner said: ‘I have written to the Cabinet Office and asked it to provide me with a copy of the [requested information] along with detailed submissions to support its position that this information is exempt from disclosure.’
Mr Clegg’s office maintains that the decision on Booktrust’s funding was taken ‘in an entirely proper way by the Secretary of State for Education’.
There is no suggestion of any wrongdoing by Booktrust, which has given away 40 million books to schoolchildren in the past 20 years. It has received Government grants since 2004.
