As singer Tulisa hits out at her conviction for assault, we urge her instead to learn to respect the justice system Tulisa Contostavlos is best known for trashy tracks about “living on the edge of life” and has also sung lines such as: “Forgive us for what we’ve done, cause we young, we young, we young”. Today, though, this lippy singer didn’t show any desire to express remorse for her conviction for the assault of a blogger and instead angrily expressed her “outrage” outside Stratford Magistrates’ Court.
Crowdcube raise £1.2 million in 16 minutes as Glentham Capital proceeds with their second fund raise via Seedrs This week the UK’s largest crowdfunding platform, Crowdcube, opened and closed their bid to raise £1.2 million to expand their company in just 16 minutes.

Child killer Mick Philpott may get his just deserts for bragging about receiving free false teeth on the NHS Mick Philpott is a man who should only be remembered as a monster who burnt 6 of his 17 children to death in a house fire.

As well known buy-to-let tycoons Fergus and Judith Wilson sell up, we ask: “Has the British property market peaked?” Known as “Baron and Baroness Buy-to-Let”, Fergus and Judith Wilson were the kind of role models those who watch daytime shows such as Homes Under the Hammer aspired to be. With this week’s announcement that they’re selling their 900-house portfolio, could this be indication that the property market has reached its peak?
Aristocrats, Russians and a VAT case all come together at a £46.5 million Hampstead mansion Agents Knight Frank describe 22 Lyndhurst Road in London’s Hampstead as a “truly exceptional Ambassadorial period residence”. What they neglect to mention, however, is that this 15,177 square foot house has recently featured in a court case involving one of Winston Churchill’s descendants, Alexander Spencer-Churchill, and a dispute over the VAT payable on introduction fees for the property’s previous sale.
Matthew Steeples asks: “In becoming ‘prison porn’ what does the case of Jeremy Meeks tell us about society?” The countless articles that have been written about the “hot mugshot guy” Jeremy Meeks fail to miss the point that here is a previously jailed individual awaiting trial for multiple felony weapon charges.

Comparing phone hacking to Jihad is simply ludicrous In yesterday’s Sun on Sunday, “warm heart[ed], acid tongue[d]” Tony Parsons ranted about the “waste of money” that has been the “assorted inquisitions into the newspaper industry”. Whilst much of what he stated is true, the way in which he linked this to the war on Jihad was quite ridiculous.
As police raid the offices of Lord Janner, we urge those running Operation Fernbridge to step up their game The revelation in the Sunday People that Labour peer Lord Janner has had his House of Lords office raided by the police comes as no surprise following on from our having received many messages about this individual via Twitter for the last year. That this story has now finally been outed is progress but what needs to happen next is for the unconnected Operation Fernbridge to finally be given the resources it requires
An appropriate description of the SNP leader The biggest donors to the campaign for Scottish independence thus far have been Colin and Chris Weir, a couple who won £161 million in the EuroMillions lottery in 2011. They’ve funded 79% of the ‘Yes’ campaign and now as Scotland prepares to vote on this stupid gamble, we had to make an image shared with us by Peter Burrell our Picture of the Week.
Will the last person to leave please turn off the lights? The Euro election results clearly identified that we have become a nation of voters who speak from the knee rather than the brain. We have empowered a group of people with no real influence and it seems we almost favour a return to the 1970s.
Billericay here we come The future political landscape of Britain has been subverted by the most meaningless political party in our history
‘The Steeple Times’ issues a reward for information that will lead to successful prosecution of the killer of Alexander Monson Yesterday, May 19th, was the second anniversary of Alexander Monson’s death in police custody in Kenya.

R. K. Patrick on the potential of an upcoming space race MOSCOW — Russia’s recent annexation of the Crimea has bred a fresh batch of overnight experts. Most are now ruminating over whether Russia has further territorial ambitions in Eastern Ukraine but they are overlooking the obvious. It is now clear that Russia’s territorial ambitions extend far further than mere earthly possessions. Indeed by 2030, a new Russian Government report suggests, Russia will have colonized the Moon.
Katie Price’s antics set her on Titanic course When Katie Price married a part-time stripper named Kieran Hayler in January 2013 everyone cried “publicity stunt” and now she’s supposedly divorcing him, people are rightly shouting the same.
TOWIE’s Lauren Goodger is the only client to publicly stand by Max Clifford Loyalty to ones friends is an admirable trait but there are times when the only option is to cut ones ties. It seems highly unlikely but even Hitler might have nice as a little boy. The truth is, however, that anyone who admitted to having been his friend as his evil empire fell would be deservedly lambasted. In coming out in support of the family of “sex fiend” Max Clifford, Lauren Goodger of The Only Way Is Essex has put herself in just such a position.
R. K. Patrick reports on the first May Day parade in Red Square since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 MOSCOW — Last Thursday, over 100,000 people paraded through Moscow’s Red Square to celebrate May Day.

Max Clifford refuses to apologise as it is revealed that he’s been borrowing against his assets Sexual abuser Max Clifford’s only remarks since being convicted have been to say that he is “incredibly disappointed about what’s happened” and he’ll be “back to court on Friday”. When asked if he would be apologising to the women he’d indecently assaulted, he did not answer and simply smugly raised his eyebrows. Here is a man with no shame and no regret.
There’s nothing worse than being Max Clifford ‘Grubby publicist’ has been the description that has been attached to Max Clifford for many years but with his conviction yesterday on eight counts of indecent assault, that can now be replaced by ‘sexual abuser’, ‘liar’ and most tellingly ‘the man with the small penis’.
Two-letter web address sells for $3.6 million (£2.1 million) It’s barely news now when a social media website sells for a billion dollars, but news that a web address has changed hands for $3.6 million (£2.1 million) is quite extraordinary.
It is time to make St George’s Day a public holiday The Irish enjoy a national holiday for St Patrick’s Day and the Scottish celebrate St Andrew’s Day. Today, 23rd April, is St George’s Day and it is time we, the English, marked it properly.

Republic.org.uk are wrong to attack the travel arrangements of The Prince of Wales In an image already shared by 1,280 on Facebook, a shameful organisation named the Republic Campaign attacked the travel arrangements of Prince Charles and his wife. We think their comments preposterous and thus make them our Wallies of the Week. In the post, Republic state: “In 2011, Charles and Camilla charged the taxpayer £30,000 for a return flight from Clarence House to Balmoral for a private break with no public engagements”. “Their excuse? Clarence House said that because Charles is ‘always on duty’, travel between his residences is regarded as official expenditure”. Firstly, it’s news to us that there’s an airport named Clarence…

An examination of the ‘F’ word “F**king amazing” is considered a compliment by the Chelsea chicks that chatter but “f**king cheat” is one that they find themselves often using to describe what’s gone wrong with their relationships. The ‘F’ word is used by such people in many contexts, but one has to ask “When is using it appropriate?”
Donna Leon’s portrait of Venice has telling similarities to our view about what Central London has become In yesterday’s The Times, author Donna Leon was interviewed about her latest novel, By Its Cover.

Nigel Evans is right to demand the CPS repay his legal expenses Last Friday, contributor to The Steeple Times Nigel Evans was cleared of nine charges of sexual offences against seven men.

Katie Hopkins chooses to remain silent about the death of Peaches Geldoff The misunderstood motormouth who will say anything for a buck Katie Hopkins used her column in The Sun this week to announce that she wouldn’t be tweeting about the death of Peaches Geldof.

Mr Gus Instinct says: “London’s become a rubbish dump for high net worths” The expression ‘ransom strip’ has always been a dream hold in the world of property but nowadays that is exactly what has happened to the prime areas of Central London.

Today, this malicious mouthpiece used her column to complain that she “wakes up scared everyday”. We can’t imagine anyone will have any sympathy for her.
World’s richest man Bill Gates pledges not to spoil his children Bill Gates is a man who found it hard to fit in. The geeks he grew up with came to resent him for betraying them but as he was elevated to the position of topping any list of ultra high net worths, he was not accepted by the waspish elite of America.

A redrawn map of Scotland sums up the perils of independence It’s always been our belief that the sum parts of the Union are worth more together than apart. Great Britain is great because of the diversity brought together in uniting England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Commonwealth and with their attempt to become independent, the Scots lobbying for it just show themselves to be fools.

Mr Gus Instinct says: “Let’s salute the Swiss” Yet again, Switzerland has fearlessly shown the way on another issue involving its own borders.

What’s so special about the titled classes? We’ve previously separately featured two women who gained titles because of whom they happened to end up married to. They are the sorts that now enjoy using these ‘accolades’ wherever they go.

Noelle Reno shares the truth about London Fashion Week All myths in fashion boil down to one fact: no one has money. Retailers have money, the media has money.

Another pair of Chelsea fraudsters bite the dust The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, as we’ve repeatedly pointed out, attracts criminals and the case of the latest dodgy pair to come to our attention won’t surprise many of our readers sadly. Meet Emmanuel and Behnaz Scotts, a duo who funded a “high rolling lifestyle” via a £280,000 VAT fraud
Twitter in 140 characters… (well almost…) Twitter: Human beings showing sheep like behaviour and asking for drivel rather than information. Then the Twitterati actually went over the cliff when they bought shares in a company that loses $2 billion a year and has now dropped in value by 25%. Enough said.
The plight of Somerset’s ‘King Canute’ Sam Notaro sums up how bad flooding in the UK is The arrogance of government ministers about flooding and the many victims who’ve been underwater since December has been surprising but our Picture of the Week is what truly sums up the mess so many are in.

Debate about empty homes on The Bishops Avenue continues In recent days there has been much debate about the many empty mansions on North London’s The Bishops Avenue. Uproar from campaigners against homelessness has been accompanied by justification from residents and estate agents.
Burkas and bin bags make for interesting companions Our Picture of the Week is certainly nothing but controversial.
Henry Irwin Pesch reviews ‘D’ORA: The Romanian Immigrant’ D’ORA by Delia Antal is not just another film. No, it’s not a film made by some amateur looking to get into the film business. It’s not the story about Romanian immigrants or any other stereotype you have in mind right now. What do you think of when you hear of a Romanian who comes to London? And when that Romanian comes over with their whole family and friends?
Will victory in ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ relaunch Jim Davidson’s career? If Jim Davidson were a product, he’d be Marmite. This entertainer polarises the nation due to his acidic style of humour and even after having seen off sexual assault allegations and having won Celebrity Big Brother 2014, he will continue to attract negative press attention.
Two cases that illustrate that it is often the victim who is forgotten Today, there have been developments in the murder cases of Meredith Kercher in Italy and Anni Dewani in South Africa. Reporting on both curiously focuses on their alleged killers rather than their victims.

Phone hacking trial is becoming a joke Jude Law’s relative, it turns out, was sharing information with the News of the World, Colin Montgomerie’s ex-wife got mixed up about what was said to her at Chequers and Charlie Brooks’ lesbian porn collection have been highlighted. The twists and the turns of phone hacking trial are certainly odd but frankly they’re nothing other than part of a “distraction technique” that we believe will result in this strange trial just falling apart.
Convicted fraudster Nigel Goldman on run after allegedly stealing another £2.5 million Marbella based Nigel Goldman was a man who supposedly had it all: a fortune, Ferraris, racehorses and “close friends” numbering Sir Mark Thatcher and James Hewitt.

Gordon Brown’s benefits from having been Prime Minister exposed Gordon Brown was undoubtedly one of Britain’s worst Prime Ministers. He was also the Chancellor who gave away our gold and a man known for his appalling temper and one who upset little old ladies. Now that Guido Fawkes has revealed the truth behind where the money passing through his office has gone, the nation has a clearer picture of the reality behind the fiction of his so called “charitable nature”.
Barman who tried to “arrest” Tony Blair to profit from incident The recent attempted “citizen’s arrest of Tony Blair” by a man called Twiggy Garcia has featured widely in the media in the last days.

Mouthpiece Monroe is a true moron Last time I featured the self-proclaimed “poverty campaigner” “Ms” Jack Monroe, she launched into a tirade of abuse against me. I expect more of the same today.
The perils and bonuses of being controversial The Steeple Times subscribes to George Orwell’s philosophy of: “Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations”.

As 1970s relics appeared in court, Matthew Steeples calls for Operation Fernbridge to be treated more seriously Rolf Harris, William Roache and Dave Lee Travis each appeared in courts yesterday in relation to separate sexual abuse charges. It truly was a day for 1970s B-listers.

Irene Ramsay shares her post-Christmas blues Waking up in January 2014 and glancing in the mirror has revealed that an entire month of disgusting excess has taken its toll.

Vicky Pryce shares her New Year’s resolutions with ‘The Telegraph’ Vicky Pryce, the disgraced former wife of the equally disgraceful Chris Huhne, shared her New Year’s resolutions with The Telegraph yesterday. They summed her up well.
Thoughts for the year ahead 2013 has not been the best of years. We’ve lost Margaret Thatcher and Sir David Frost and the word “selfie” has entered the Oxford English Dictionary. The economy has not got better – despite the nonsense spouted on the BBC – and the slaying of Private Rigby summed up the very lowest level humanity can reach.
Red Bull founder’s grandson remains subject to an arrest warrant In a case that echoes that of Florida’s John Goodman trial, 28-year old Vorayuth Yoovidhya – the grandson of the founder of Red Bull – remains subject to an arrest warrant for reckless driving, causing death and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

The not guilty verdict in the case of the former assistants to Charles Saatchi and Nigella Lawson’s highlights nothing but the mess that was their marriage #TeamNigella has trended on Twitter in recent weeks.

Assange takes on Harrods Revelations that the biopic based upon his life, The Fifth Estate, has flopped at the box office and took just $6 million against a $28 million budget no doubt cheered Julian Assange’s spirits, but it seems matters closer to “home” have been troubling his sleeping pattern.
