Oaten : Journalists Knew for Years

Disgraced LibDem MP Mark Oaten tells the Press Gazette that the News of the Screws had known of his activities for three years but had chosen to wait until he was better known to report his use of rent-boys. He claims:

“They had my story for three years I think, but hung on to it and never did anything with it. They could have made that public interest argument at any point in the three years. I had always been a Member of Parliament, but they waited until it could sell most newspapers, at the point at which I became well-known and at my most famous…. What annoys me is when they essentially expose people’s private lives and pretend they’re doing society a great service.”

In response to Oaten’s claims, a News of the World spokesman said: “The allegations were proven true… Mr Oaten is correct that we are indeed in the business of selling papers, however we chose not to print details of his grubby activities on the front page of a family newspaper… With that in mind, perhaps it is the married MP who paid rent boys for kinky sex who should consider a more ‘upfront and honest’ approach.”

The question which arises in Guido’s mind is that if as Mark Oaten reckons the Screws had known about his rent-boy frolics for three-years, doesn’t that contradict his original excuses?  He claimed that it was the sudden onset of male pattern baldness that unbalanced him.  Sudden?   Journalists knew for over three years?

      If he knew that the press had the goods on him for three years, I presume he told his party leader or chief whip to avoid later embarrassment? If no, he was disingenuous to accept promotion and allow himself to become better known with that hanging over his head; if yes, the Lib hierarchy obviously covered up for him.

      Either way, it’s not the worst Lib scandal we’ve seen: at least he didn’t pay a hit man five grand to find the journo who outed him – and shoot his poor, fluffy, little doggy. [RIP Rinka.]

    Well, I started losing my hair a while back, but I can’t say that it unbalanced me. I mean, on a purely physical level the shift in weight must have changed my equilibrium a little bit, but I can’t remember ever going off the rails and hiring rent boys to perform kinky sex acts because of it. Perhaps I should live a bit more.

    O/T SKY NEWS REPORTING

    Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards John Lyon has accepted a complaint about London MP Harry Cohen’s claim for a taxpayer-funded second-home allowance on a house in the capital.

    The MP for Leyton and Wanstead lists a house in Colchester, Essex as his main home, allowing him to claim for the cost of running a house in the east London constituency 70 miles away.

    He denied any wrongdoing last week when the Mail on Sunday reported that he had claimed more than £300,000 since 1990, saying it was “part of my salary” and had been cleared by the Commons authorities.

      Jacqui has obviously been taking voice lessons – low octaves – very much regret mistake of putting TV package on expenses – once I knew – immediately repaid etc etc o- very much regret allowiing the claim to come anywhere near the fees office;husband DOES not earn £40,000 rather “less than £30,000 – patio heaters etc to enable me to fulfil my duties although the allegation regarding this are not true etc etc etc etc.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they had a vast repository of sleaze cases lined up.

    The Murdoch media will probably want to hang fire until nearer the next elections before deciding to pounce with any really juicy stuff.

    Heard Jackboots on GMTV avoid giving direct answers to direct questions like the master obfuscator she is. That new GMTV presenter doing the questioning was a bit disappointing, she had the perfect opportunity to be a complete bitch but never took it.

    How on earth has this man got the nerve to still be involved in politics and public life after his truly abhorrent private life was splashed all over the News of the World ?

    It’s his poor wife that I feel most sorry for, what a betrayal slipping off to a seedy hotel for regular afternoon sex sessions with various rent boys one of whom was apparently an unemployed Polish male ballet dancer. He apparently used to get off by lying under a glass coffee table and watching the act of defecation taking place? As one of his rent boy’s later commented this is one very disturbed individual.

    Most people and even politicians having been caught out in the above circumstances would simply want to go home and die or have the earth swallow them up. Not Mr Oaten he simply carries on business as usual as though he’d been caught out committing a minor parking offence and of course the whole thing exploded during the Liberal party leadership campaign.

    God save us all from politicians.

    In response to Oaten’s claims, a News of the World spokesman said: “The allegations were proven true… Mr Oaten is correct that we are indeed in the business of selling papers, however we chose not to print details of his grubby activities on the front page of a family newspaper… With that in mind, perhaps it is the married MP who paid rent boys for kinky sex who should consider a more ‘upfront and honest’ approach.”

    ++++

    They were, of course, saving the front page to display details of Max Mosley’s private life in their “family” newspaper. Wish Oaten had the balls to sue for breach of privacy too.

    Speaking to Rachel Hine of the Portsmouth News yesterday Oaten said that “he doesn’t think the public was entitled to know what he was up to.”

    Oaten went on to say that he deserved more sympathy from journalists over what happened.

    All together now……..Aaaaaah!

    Oaten goes on “I just want them to be more up front and honest and say yep, we’re doing it to sell newspapers.”

    Don’t we all!

    What is most interesting though is that Oaten now claims that the News of the World knew about his sex life for THREE YEARS before breaking the story.

    Which begs the question “Is there more to this story than we all first thought?”

    Me smells a rat somewhere!

    In the meantime no doubt I will get as much stick today as he did for the original revelations for saying that what happened was almost certainly in the public interest and nothing short of perverted.

    MPs like Oaten are supposed to set an example to us all but as one of his constituents in the Denmead area of Hampshire told me yesterday “Having his face stuck on the Village Notice Board day after day is a humiliation to the people who live in it!”

    Either way, it’s not the worst Lib scandal we’ve seen: at least he didn’t pay a hit man five grand to find the journo who outed him – and shoot his poor, fluffy, little doggy. [RIP Rinka.]

    Maybe Guido;s being a bit faux-naif about this. Newspapers do – for obvious reasons, like not wanting to get sued – keep stories on the back burner, pending either corroborative evidence or some other outlet to put themselves in the firing line first. In my own experience, one such was an intense weekend of doorstepping Peter Lillie, then a member of the cabinet, which ended with the hacks evaporating as swiftly as they had appeared. Another was the discovery, in the Mirror Group’s photo library, of a long lens snap of a youth with a “flat top” haircut (then much favoured by the professionally gay classes) helpfully entitled “JohnRedwood’s boyfriend. To the best of my knowledge, this has never been published.

A ‘senior Conservative party official’ passes judgement on Theresa May:

“She is boring. A technocrat. She is Philip Hammond with a fanny. Not interesting, but rendered interesting by circumstance. And that circumstance is that she is a woman. And in an age when the Prime Minister gets it in the neck for refusing to wear a fucking T-shirt that says he is a feminist, that is a rocket boost right underneath you.”
