Left-wing British newspaper demands public funding, Fairfax next

A journalist and phone-hacker at left-wing British newspaper The Guardian has come up with an extraordinary way to save the dying newspaper, whose parent company last year lost £129.1 million ($A 200 million), with the newspaper contributing a loss of £75.6 million. David Leigh proposed a £2 ($A 3.11) a month levy for all British internet users.

As British political blogger Guide Fawkes says 'That’s right, they aren’t making money because people are not buying their papers, so they are now demanding a bailout'

How long until we see Fairfax and it's dying titles The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age demanding funding?

Book of the week: Flying Free by Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage is the Leader of the UK Independence Party. The party campaigns for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, and now has a full manifesto. The party supports selective education, opposes massive immigration, but is a non racist party. The party also supports lesser government and fewer taxes, and is sceptical of human contribution to global warming. Sadly, the Conservative Party in the UK has moved further and further to the left under the leadership of David Cameron who described himself as a 'social liberal', is a fan of the EU and green taxes.

The UK Independence Party is extremely similar to the Liberal Party of Australia. It is a conservative liberal party. The party came second in the European Parliament elections in the UK in 2009.

Farage is a an admirer of Australia and John Howard, and a big supporter of the Commonwealth.

Watch him in action here and here and here and here

His excellent book is Flying Free.
''In an age of colourless bureaucrats, Nigel Farage is a politician who is impossible to ignore, provoking controversy and admiration in equal measure. A fun-loving iconoclast whose motto is work hard and play harder", Farage's charismatic leadership and determination to battle the forces of anti-libertarianism have made him a Robin Hood figure to many, and propelled his party, UKIP, into a position of real power in the country. Never one for a quiet life, this paperback edition includes the story of Nigel's extraordinary escape from death in a plane crash on the eve of the 2010 general election (the light aircraft he was flying in got caught up in a UKIP banner it was towing and crashed shortly after take-off, badly injuring Farage and his pilot), his recovery and return to the leadership of UKIP in November 2010. Featuring sometimes hilarious and often terrifying encounters with a stellar supporting cast, including Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Nicolas Sarkozy, Jose Manuel Barroso, and UKIP's short-lived, silver-gilt masco, Robert Kilroy-Silk - and told with Farage's customary wit and humour, Fighting Bull is a candid, colourful life story by a fascinating and controversial character. It also shows that one fearless, determined individual can still make a difference.''

I would strongly recommend this book as part of my new Book Of The Week article.

Young Labor gets personal

NSW Young Labor have attacked this blogger over his coverage of the misleading Labor hate page.
The admin of the page accused me of being a 'conservative lackney'.
Unfortunately, the site admin has not addressed any of the concerns I raised yesterday.
They have not addressed why the page is pretending to be neutral
They have not addressed why they are hiding the involvement of the Labor Party head office
They have not addressed why the page does not contain an electoral authorisation
They have not addressed why they are posting insulting comments and photos
They have not addressed why they called the NSW Premier a 'scumbag'
They have not addressed why they say teachers will lose their job, depsite Government assurances
They have not addressed why they took party political signs into schools

Once they have addressed these issues, they can insult me all they like.

EXCLUSIVE: Labor caught out spreading propaganda and hate to school students

Note: If republishing this story, please credit Musings of a Young Conservative blog or
The NSW Labor Party have been caught out spreading malicious personal attacks and political propaganda to school students. The party founded a Facebook page called 'Students against school cuts', and have illegally failed to carry an authorisation.

In addition, the party has been caught out pretending the page was founded by non-political, independent concerned students with misleading lines such as 'We don't vote - so we need you to'. Other misleading statements include: 'We've started this page because high school and TAFE students deserve better. As high school students, we want a Government that increases funding for schools - not cut it. Join our parents, friends, teachers and family in supporting and speaking out against these cuts on our page.'

The party is only caught out when you follow the links to the 'Contact Website', which is On the bottom of this website is this text:
Yes. The so-called 'high-school student' happens to be NSW Labor boss Sam Dastyari. And this shameless farce continue, with the Labor party asking for donations:
Back to the Facebook page, and the party is spreading malicious comments and untruths to school students.  They are also posting these photos:
Here is a most telling image. The image was posted in 'Canberra, Australia Capital Territory.' Why would a New South Wales student opposed to school cuts be in the ACT?

Here the page is posting a like to a site called 'Scumbag Barry', whilst a Labor supporter predicts Mr O'Farrell will lose the next election, despite having a huge majority and being well ahead in the polls:

But here are some of the most shocking revalations of all. The NSW Labor Party took unauthorised and potenially illegal signs into NSW Schools. Here are Newtown Performing Arts School students with Labor Party signs: and here are students of Sydney Girls High with the posters: Here are students of Pennant Hills High with the signs:!/media/set/?set=a.393991047336615.90719.392932850775768&type=3

The claims made on the page about teachers losing their jobs are hysterical and untrue. No teacher will lose their job, the Government has promised.
For some unknown reason, the page has also published these unflattering images of Mr O'Farrell and Federal Opposition Leader, Tony Abbott:


You would have thought the NSW Labor Party had better things to do than set up vile abusive and juvenile Facebook pages.
UPDATE: Here is an ad flogging the site. These ads cost up to $2 per click. I highly doubt a 'concerned student' would fork out the money on this.
