The papers are already ripping them to peices I had to smile at this in the Indi Doctor, doctor: why is my GP going on strike?" asks the Independent's front page. The answer, it says: "because a £53,000-a-year pension isn't enough."

For all his Millions and all the houses he owns Tony Blair still has to give his side of the story to Lord Leveson. Come Monday the costliest show in town meets the New Labour Millionaire ex leader of the Power to the people party. Can you credit it him a true RED worth Millions kissing and telling all over his time in office and his close relations with Uncle Rupert.
A few weeks ago a news reader was talking about Greece and said all that was happeneing was the powers to be were kicking the can down the road hoping it would go away.Now after what seems an eternity I think they have discovered it aint going to disappear and some one has to pick the can up and see what is left inside. For sure the Chinese produce more in a few days than Greece does in a lifetime, Poland is more powerful and Sweden is sweeter. But compare all you like the problems still remain Billions of €'s. If Greece bails out then you can kiss your sweet ass goodbye to any of the banks who have bonds getting anything back. Plus what about the rest of the euro nations finding it hard Spain Portugal and Italy would all love to wipe out their debts. Well the time has comme for someone to pick up that can sit it upright an the wall and see which side of the fence the Greeks decide on.

Can you imagine the cost of the Leveson Inquiry. I dont know how much a QC charges per hour but I recon a Barristter is about 600 quid an hour and there are about ten of them. Add the other secretarys and stuff plus Leveson himself I wouldnt mind betting it shapes up to a fair few bob and I doubt that Murdock will be paying so it will be you and me picking up the tab.

I had to smile Lords reform was less a sticky wicket than Gay Marriage so it got a mention in the Queens speech. Clegg has no idea of what a can of worms he has opened. Neither house really want reform even though it is long overdue. The commons on both sides will have their opponents and in the Lords itself it will be like turkeys voting for Christmas. I know it is needed but I dont think either Clegg or Cameron have the Cajones to pull off the root and branch reform that is needed. Still it will make some jobs for the boys, can you image the amount of paper that will be used getting this one through.

I see on the BBC news that the Cameron Clegg cosy up is to be relaunched. I wonder how that will look are they going to go round holding hands? I said yesterday we need to see growth ahead of crazy policies and after yesterdays French election results even Angela Merkel has softened her stance. So what is going on? The Greeks definitely don't want to play the austerity game anymore. I thought we were about to see a France Germany bust up but first signs are for a love in. Watch this space could this be the end of our 1930's style austerity measures or the begging of stock market crash as investors head for the hills? I don't know but I do know the Euro has fallen today.

I kept meaning to search the Tony Blair property values. I knew he had been building up a small empire of expensive house but 14 million quid seems a far way from his Labour roots.Enough said other than to mention snouts and trough.Click here
The Guardian - 15 minutes ago
On Sunday, France put an end to Nicolas Sarkozy's presidency. Five years after electing him enthusiastically, the French decided they would rather have an "ordinary" president than an "extraordinary" one.
I saw Julian Brazier in the BBC Kent news yesterday calling for the Tories to abandon the Wet Liberal policies and get on with more pressing issues. He unlike most of the coalition remembers we are in recession and need growth more than we need Lords reform or Gay Marriage laws. I thought he spoke well and some of his colleague's would do well to remember the Liberals are in the minority
