The dead tree press catches up … eventually

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Via Guido, the Guardian has noticed that Liebour has £13m of loans due this year despite being on the verge of bankruptcy.

They must be congratulated on their investigative journalism skills – after all, it only took them a week and a half to think of looking at the Electoral Commission website to see how much debt Liebour have got due for repayment this year.  It was the first thing I did after laughing at their misfortune.

Oh well, they caught up eventually.

    From today’s Morning Star:

    “Union leaders are taking seriously the possibility that party officials and members of its national executive committee could become liable, a point which was underlined by the decision of equity fund chairman David Pitt-Watson not to accept the post of general secretary.

    “The GMB union’s executive decided to indemnify its two members on the national executive – GMB deputy general secretary and former Labour conference chairwoman Debbie Coulter and GMB president Mary Turner – to protect their homes and savings. […]

    “Three major unions, UNISON, the Communications Workers Union and GMB, have tabled motions at their annual conferences next month calling for members to disaffiliate from Labour.”
