Hello, new visitors!

Welcome to the Guido 2.0 website!

Look around if you must, but if you are arriving just after Paul de Laire Staines' Newsnight performance, then the most interesting thing to look at right now is the comments under this post at the 'Guido Fawkes' weblog.

Manic's comment on this subject (which is sure to deleted soon along with all the others as soon as Paul gets home) read as follows:
Manic is struggling to find anything gracious or generous to say about Paul's performance... but he did enjoy Paxman's and White's breezy dismissal of his pointless 'anonymity' charade very much indeed.

Some excellent points from White, too. He nailed 'Guido' again and again and again.

Manic's only regret is that he couldn't watch Paul's face as it unfolded/unravelled (but he suspects this is a major reason for the silhouette nonsense).

Go for it, Mr Undercover!
Manic also enjoyed watching 'Guido' burn a source as he scrambled to save his own arse... he would not want to be a cat in the Staines household this evening!

Manic has spoken. End communication.

UPDATE (11:50pm) - Oh dear... 'Guido' is clearly feeling the pressure. Comment moderation has been switched on and Manic's comments have been hastily deleted ('Guido' will no doubt claim at a later date that Manic was being sweary and abusive). Outright arse-saving censorship and the sudden introduction of pre-vetting makes that comments thread far less interesting, so Manic will provide some key items of interest here instead.

Taking it decade-by-decade seems to be the simplest thing to do:

'Guido' being a twat in the eighties
'Guido' being a twat in the nineties
'Guido' being a twat in the noughties

Have fun.

PS - Tch! Dig *up*, stupid!

Manic has spoken again. End communication again.

The comments changed dramatically in tone and direction after Guido took hold of the reigns, didn't they?

Just wondered what your reaction is to the news that MP's have just voted themselves £10,000 per year each to set up web sites, your in for some stiff competition i can see it now: B-liarogg,The Fat-Pie-Man, Old-Git, Squeeky Green, Dazed and Confused, Alan B'stard Two, etc etc. No need to worry too much i guess, their record on setting up I.T.projects is so bad i suspect they will just stick the ten grand in their back pockets, rock on.

Simon: Waste. Of. Money.

None of it is going to go towards any kind of meaningful weblog/dialogue. The rules make it clear that party-political discussion is right out whenever this money is used, and party positions are a vital part of any political debate. We can look forward to many Miliblog clones (note: differnet source of cash, but same situation), with some newly established 'blog experts' coining it in and delivering many soulless (but very shiny) websites.

Now shush... Manic is trying to enjoy his schadenfreude.

Man, we've got to get the White/Staines exchange up on Youtube. That's going to keep me warm on many a long winter night.

But you've got to love the way his little ears showed up all pink and shiny. Bless.

Just a shame the smoke from his smouldering pants obscured the view so.
