+++ Liam Byrne Just Effectively Sacked Draper Live on Sky +++

Questioned repeatedly he disowned Dolly, he denied Dolly headed up Labour’s online operation.  Byrne denied he had any official role in Labour.

So why did they launch LabourList in Labour HQ with Peter Mandelson and Dougie Alexander in attendance?  Why did Gordon Brown invite Derek Draper to Chequers?  What did they discuss – Strictly Come Dancing?

UPDATE : Alastair Campbell has just disowned McBride and Draper, with a nothing to do with me  guv dismissal: “I barely know Mr McBride. I was vaguely aware of him being around the Treasury when I was in Number 10, and vaguely aware that he was closer to the Charlie Whelan school of strategic communications than my own. (I’m aware we tend to get lumped together in some sections, but I know the differences, even if they don’t.)”

UPDATE II : Clarke has just called for Draper and Whelan to consider their position.  His was the voice that put the final nail in the coffin for McBride.  He obviously hasn’t finished with that hammer…


  1. 1

    Does anyone have the power to sack him from LabourList though?

    Am I alone in thinking that Byrne himself should be sacked for the most blatantly disingenuous, cynically evasive interview I’ve ever seen in my entire life? From the Minister of the Cabinet Office for heaven’s sake!

    Juno says:

    Has he? On the BBC he was pretending he didn’t know who Draper was. He refered to him as McBride’s friend. The BBC let him off the hook, he kept refering to them as private emails and the pathetic interviewer didn’t come up with the obvious retort that it was on a government account.

    what is Draper’s job anyway, I can’t keep up with these shysters?

    Why is not anyone talking about the arseh*le in chief. Any bloke who relishes his own nasal waste in full view of the world will find putting this team of utter creeps together a piece of snot cake. Brown is the epitome of Labour hypocrisy and awfulness. Nothing else matters but their grip on power in order to “educate us all”. Blair’s mantra “Education..etc” obviously was referring to our re-education in Orwellian speak. Labour, Ughhhhhh…….

  19. 19

    if that is the case, why is Dolly still described as a ‘labour activist’ and also that ‘He remains a consultant to the Labour Party’ on labourlist itself? ‘consultant’ sounds fairly official to me.

    Please you vile, hate filled, lying, thieving, mentally unstable Scotch degenerates, please leave England alone.

    Spot on, I heard him say that Draper was not the head of Labours Internet Team. I do wonder about McBride though, expect him, after a short foreign holiday, (Gitmo would be good) to pop up at an obscure quango, after all all the political dirt McBride has collected over the years would have been for his book deal, the toxic tome to be published I suggest, just after the next General Election.

    If McBride by ‘resigning’ has preserved his top hat public sector pension fuirther investigations should be made to see if he should have been summarily removed for gross misconduct and alleged stealing of electricity as they used to do for dodgy phone calls…

    Keep up the good work Guido and get some top level media training ‘cos I think you are going to be on the box quite often in future.

    No longer can the politicians not read this blog, or claim not to have read it… second Hoons all round… best ever Easter present me thinks.

    My god the comments on the NOWT website are amazing….if ZaNuLabour don’t realise now how hated they are, they will never know.

    There are one or two desperate Nulab apologists but they are very much swimming against the tide and their feeble efforts are being drowned out by fury of working class people who have been let down by Labour’s sleaze and incompetant mismanagment of the economy.

    Let this also be a wake-up call to Mr Murdoch. You don’t usualy back losers….perhaps it’s time to sack a few labour Arslickahn merchants and get some real journalists, instead of having to make Guido do all your work for you.

    Not a Draper Fan says:

    I wonder if Gordon would like to invite this fraud and charlatan to Chequers now? When he originally invited him down he would have been under the impression that Draper was a fully qualified psychotherapist on retainer to such clinics as The Tavistock Clinic etc. Now it turns out that he he didn’t possess any of the qualifications needed by places such as Tavistock in order to do his job. As they state on their website, the minimum qualification must be “a full professional qualification in medicine, clinical psychology, nursing or social work”. Draper did not possess any such qualification.

    As usual the person we must all extend our sympathy to is Kate Garraway. The poor girl has genuine qualifications, a career that she has worked hard to make a success and a family she loves. Unfortunately Derek Draper is risking all of this in order to fulfill his own fantasies of self-importance.

    Do they need to do much – other than express outrage and call for a personal apology from McTwat ?(some hope of course “it twas nuthin’ t do wi me”and he never apologises)labour are doing a pretty good job of shafting themselves without concerted Tory assistance – the more desperately Labour spin -the more doubt spreads – and as for letting Draper loose on the airwaves yesterday – Christ almighty – are the Labour Party leadership complete idiots or what ?- although come to think of it perhaps it’s a cunning ploy as firstly to make sure the majority of sh1t stuck to him and McBride and secondly makes it easier to give Draper “the long drop” to-day!!!! And thereby deliver another scalp to deflect it all away from Brown – if it’s not successful then no doubt more senior offerings than Draper will be given up to protect Brown – this still has a few miles to go yet I think

    Not sure Mandie or other Labour big wigs will approve of HIS return:
    From Wikipedia:
    “He resigned in 1999 after leaking information relating to Peter Mandelson’s resignation over a home loan. He has since carved out a career in the media. Whelan has kept in close touch with Gordon Brown since he left his employ and regularly attacks other members of the Labour government.”

    Athough he is “taters deep” with the unions so who knows. Depends on who pulls the strings.

  56. 56
    Juno says:

    but it is left looking like an official Labour Party web site. Draper and McBride didn’t really understand the blogosphere, a modicum of independence from the parties and big media is essential to gather an audience.

    “There will be more to come.

    There’s McBride’s in-pocket journo’s – clearly Brogan and Porter at the Telegraph, but quite likely to include references to Toe Nails and possibly Peston

    There’s more to come on the Unite link – clearly they were funding and one of their key men would have been writing RedRag

    There will be more on Watson. Guido’s just been teasing us up to now.

    The real question is how far Gordo managed to keep himself away from this. Given this is his inner circle, its pretty hard to believe he didn’t know. Its in his character and nature and smear is what he’s done all his life.”

    Quote Adam Boulton
    think we need to step back from this a bit and say ‘who is Damian McBride’? Most people probably haven’t heard of him. Well he’s someone who started life as a civil servant but he then was so devoted to the cause of Gordon Brown, that he resigned from that and became a special advisor – someone paid for while you’re in government, by the taxpayer but nonetheless who works as a political operative for his master, in this case, Gordon Brown.

    It is fantastic that they have effectively shot themselves and are now whining about how these emails came to light on the very week that this liberty bashing junta made law the retention of email details and web browsing logs. Perfectly safe I’m sure, because it’s not like anyone would act outside their remit would they? Like a civil servant engaging in constructing untrue political slanders?…

    An interesting comment from PB.com which I thought is worth repeating here. If true this makes me fucking sick to the stomach. This theory is being bandied about elsewhere too.

    Last night Mike Smithson said that one of the false allegations concocted by Brown’s henchmen, about Cameron’s health, was “of such a subtlety and magnitude you have to wonder whether Brown could be fingered”. When you compare and contrast this with what he have been told, SO FAR, there is a disconnect. It doesn’t fit the description.

    A vague hint that he might have had the clap years ago? How is that possessed of a “subtlety and magnitude”?

    I was pondering this disjunct, and reading some of the other comments and articles, and I suddenly realised what was being hinted – what was possibly being insinuated by Brown’s thugs. And indeed it is very subtle and it is very very nasty.

    As I see it (nervous readers please look away now) the implication is that Cameron had “an embarrassing illness” that he gave to his wife a long time ago, which might have contributed to their son’s birth defect.

    Now I don’t know if I am right. But that’s what all the hints seem to be pointing towards, when you join them together.

    And it is, of course, a monumentally despicable lie, especially at a time when the Camerons are grieving for Ivan’s death.

    I suppose the Draper/Brown/McBride defense would be, We didn’t mean that, we just wanted to imply he had the clap and Osborne’s wife is mad, but the trouble for them is that they have confessed they spend time making up snide and revolting fibs about opponents to try and “destabilise” them – how can we believe them when they say Oh, we only meant this nasty unpleasant lie, not that *really* nasty one?

    They should be hung by their own intestines. They are the lowest. Brown, Watson, McBride, Draper.

    Attached is a House of Lords guidance extract from the Crown Prosecution Service specifically detailing what an unlawful grossly offensive message intended to cause annoyance or needless anxiety is under current case law:


    3. Unlawful content in electronic communications

    Improper use of public electronic communications network – Section 127 Communications Act, 2003

    The Communications Act 2003 section 127, see Stones 8 – 30110B [and Blackstones B19.40], covers the sending of improper messages. Section 127(1)(a) relates to a message etc that is grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character and should be used for indecent phone calls and emails. Section 127(2) targets false messages and persistent misuse intended to cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety; it includes somebody who persistently makes silent phone calls (usually covered with only one information because the gravamen is one of persistently telephoning rendering separate charges for each call unnecessary).

    If a message sent is grossly offensive, indecent, obscene, menacing or false it is irrelevant whether it was received. The offence is one of sending, so it is committed when the sending takes place. The test for “grossly offensive” was stated by the House of Lords in DPP v. Collins [2006] 1 WLR 2223 to be whether the message would cause gross offence to those to whom it relates (in that case ethnic minorities), who need not be the recipients. The case also said that it is justifiable under ECHR Art 10(2) to prosecute somebody who has used the public telecommunications system to leave racist messages.

    The offence is a summary offence, and part of the fixed penalty scheme.

    Ctesibius says:

    I may be a bit slow on the uptake, but the penny dropped with me a few minutes ago. I’m posting the comment I just put up on PB for the information of anyone reading Guido’s blog too:

    I simply don’t accept (as Geoff Hoon would say) that Gordon Brown could NOT have been aware of this. These emails were carefully put together – they were part of a PROJECT – and it is inconceivable that he could not be aware of what was going on. Imagine the scene once this spinning started? Would Brown’s acolytes in his office have been feigning surprise and amazement in front of him each time one came out into the press, then sniggering behind their hands as soon as the Great Man left his desk? Be real, people, that’s an inconceivable scenario with a workaholic control-freak like Brown.

    And what was that Project? The absolute, total, utter horror is that it revolved around Ivan Cameron, the most vulnerable person they could get at in the Cameron family. That has an utterly horrific, almost Dark Ages theological pathos. Here was a profoundly disabled person, suffering greatly all of his life, yet supported by the love of his family. Any ‘privileges’ Cameron’s family has are set to naught against the challenge they faced in caring for Ivan and allowing him to live in dignity and a loving household. These people are monsters who saw that, but laughed at Ivan and twisted their ‘toffs’ agenda to use him as a weapon against his loving parents. It’s almost inconceivable. It’s more like reading Beowulf and then finding that the vile monsters in the lake are alive and well and paid by me to sit around in Downing Street.

    This explains two things:

    1) The ‘Toffs campaign’ in Crewe. This was a sinister and evil development of that line: ‘look’, the Labour spinners would say, ‘Cameron has all that privilege, but he is sick inside. Don’t trust him, look what he did to his son’. We all thought the Toffs Campaign was a daft anomaly. In fact it was just the start of a sick, sick, sick personal campaign.

    2) Why the campaign was pulled. Draper said yesterday that he pulled the campaign just because he felt it wasn’t quite right. Draper lies compulsively, so we can discount anything he says. No, the reason the campaign was pulled was because poor Ivan Cameron died. And the reason the Government is willing to sacrifice its credibility on this level is damage limitation – to prevent this foul truth coming out.

    And this on Easter Sunday.

    How can Brown deny all knowledge when these e-mails have been
    in the news for days? They were even argued about on TV and their
    exsistance was falsly denied. Brown must have been informed then
    for their existance would prove so damaging. If they were being
    discussed Brown would have known and should have immedeatly
    sacked all the participants unless he was party to their use.

    And if Liam Byrne is the best Brown can put forward as a fire-fighter, the turd-in-chief is really scraping the bottom of the slop bucket, given that the majority of his cabinet (McNulty, Smith, Mandy et al) are already compromised as being thieving scum and non-starters for fronting the damage limitation PR machine.

    Guido, I salute you on a fantastic job brilliantly done (although it would have been nice had you sold the story to the NotW for a token penny.

    Might I suggest a national campaign for street parties on the night of the next general election – ostensibly to give Mr Brown a good send-off? Given the catastrophic state he and Blair have left UK Plc in when looking at the hard years ahead, flushing this cesspit of scum into the sewer of political ignomy at the ballot box will give relatively little satisfaction – however, it could be the last night of national celebration for a very long time to come.

    This is still being played as a storm in a teacup. Brown is reported as being furious, the man who allegedly smashes phones by the dozen, so furious he simply accepts a resignation? The message is loud and clear, nobody was sacked, for something that is now going to haunt Brown and Labour in the press and the courts.

    It’s about as good an indicator as any that McBride was not doing this on his own at No 10 and he could not be sacked, there had to be a deal. Draper is damaged goods that were of marginal value to start with, they will isolate and cut him.

    Given that Brown did not sack McBride there must be more to this than is in the open, just how much more is there to this attempt to rig the next election? At Glenrothes electoral register disappeared when copies of it were requested to check for fraud.

    The squalid behaviour of Brown’s government is a contrast to what much of Labour has stood for in the past. I’m just old enough to remember the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders work-in in 1971 when the company went into receivership and the workforce decided that they would save the company by making it work. The Shop Steward Jimmy Reid insisted that the workers behaved themselves in an exemplary fashion, “no hooliganism, no vandalism and no bevvying”. He won the public and saved the jobs, it was an extraordinary achievement for a then communist.

    Reid was unsurprisingly disillusioned by New Labour and left the party, Brown represents everything that Reid opposed, I doubt Reid is surprised by what he reads in the papers this weekend.

    I can admire what Jimmy Reid the communist achieved in 1971, the contrast with the squalid little world of Gordon Brown is immense, things will only get worse, nobody got sacked.

    Damn it, I’m so sick of this Nu-Lab f**k-w**k that I’m going to state my case, perhaps a little prematurely:
    There is a paedophile ring right at the very heart of New Labour, and it involves Blair and Prescott, that much I am absolutely certain of. Brown is possibly involved too, but if not, then he is/was certainly aware of it, at the very least.

    I have some hard evidence, but so far it can’t be absolutely proved, and so it’s not enough to absolutely nail the bastards. It is known that someone else has video evidence, but they’ve gone abroad, and they won’t come forward with it unless certain conditions are satisfied. I’m trying to get those conditions met, which is very difficult as I’m not really in any position of power to do so, or to put it plainly, I cannot convince them to trust me. They’re scared, and I can’t blame them for that. Even if they trusted me, how can they know for sure that I wouldn’t be compromised by others?

    But damn it, there is a paedophile ring at the very heart of New Labour, I know that much for sure.

    There is a paedophile ring right at the very heart of New Labour, and it involves Blair and Prescott, that much I am absolutely certain of. Brown is possibly involved too, but if not, then he is/was certainly aware of it, at the very least.

    I have some hard evidence, but so far it can’t be absolutely proved, and so it’s not enough to absolutely nail the bastards. It is known that someone else has video evidence, but they’ve gone abroad, and they won’t come forward with it unless certain conditions are satisfied. I’m trying to get those conditions met, which is very difficult as I’m not really in any position of power to do so, or to put it plainly, I cannot convince them to trust me. They’re scared, and I can’t blame them for that. Even if they trusted me, how can they know for sure that I wouldn’t be compromised by others?

    But damn it, there is a paedophile ring at the very heart of New Labour, I know that much for sure.

    No, Lanc, I assure you that I am being deadly serious, and that my comment was not meant as some sort of “double-bluff” from a Labour stooge. Guido has my utmost respect for what he has achieved today, and I salute him. What I have written is not intended as any sort of smear (indeed, I don’t see how you have arrived at such a conclusion at all). I detest New Labour, and I’m being totally serious here. Please reconsider.

    Mr Oik has come to the conclusion because it is an obvious one. Tell us the difference between ‘Cameron has got the clap’ and ‘Blair is a paedo’?
    As it stands there isn’t any, one, the other, neither or both could conceivably be true, and why should we believe you.
    As it stands you are on the level with someone who has just seen a flying saucer and is telling everyone down the pub, who all think you are a loony. Only Martians calling in for a quick half before closing time will redeem your reputation.

    In an effort to reverse the fortunes of the Labour Party, Gordon Brown, Prime Minister (hallelujah), has decided, in a determined effort, to both shake Labour from it’s seedy reputation as a bad employer and bad governor of just about, well, everything and its crap use of the internet as a means of communication par excellence, ala Guido Forks, to deliver his most heartfelt and sincere not quite apology but something remotely near it, by way of starting his own blog.

    Agreed. there is no way that this was not known about by Brown. Cast your mind back to when the media was falling over itself to sell us the unique qualities of Brown to replace the discredited liar Blair. What was his primary quality? His incredibly anal attention to the finest detail. He knew everything that was going on. Now all of a sudden, he has turned into a Manuelesque “I know nothing!”

    Labour lacking any other strategy, after 12 years they have nothing positive of note to celebrate in terms of achievements, so this WAS to be their centrepiece. Smear and negative attacks. Of course Brown knew.

    However, I am not sure that Brown would really want to turn too negative and personal, after all, somebody must have a copy of a certain credit card transaction of Brown’s.

    Galloway & Boulton tear Derek a new one. Very entertaining. http://new.talksport.net/

    This story’s got legs you know…

    Nadine Dorries confirms her intention to seek legal advice (on Tuesday) & floats the idea of using other legal channels (F.O.I. etc.) to ‘get at the truth’.

    Grayling pushes for an aplogy from the PM… remember that line?

    With Liam Byrne the only cabinet minister visible, Charles Clarke wheels in (…again) to harrumph from the back benches.

    Looks like a lot of tories are having a working holiday ;)

    McBride’s gone & Draper’s damaged beyond repair.

    Tom Watson may well be the next target – either in the aftermath of this current debacle, or with another well-aimed strike on the next Bank Holiday weekend, only three weeks away.

    This would leave Brown exposed & de-stabilised (both externally & internally), with his best two attack/counter-attack dogs neutered.
    And Labour’s internet strategy is completely bent out of shape. Derek, being an ‘erratic’ driver has smacked Labourlist into the wall like an F1 rookie at Monaco.

    And then, four weeks after the Mayday Bank Holiday (nice touch, lads!) we have the Spring Bank Holiday.

    Between now & then, however, we also have the release of MP’s expenses. Whilst there will doubtless be embarassments across the board on that score, whose team looks in better shape to grasp that particular nettle?

    There’s also the small matter of The Budget, which as a matter of course focusses all attention on Brown & Darling, but gives Osbourne a set-piece ‘response’, with guaranteed coverage.

    I’m expecting Brown to enter the summer recess isolated, weakened & fretful. A hot, sticky, hostile & unrelenting prelude to the conference season, perhaps.

People like her a disgrace to the Journalistic profession.

    Stephen Pound was also on TalkSPORT in the “wee hours” spinning away ‘on message’, using the word “puerile” for some elegant variation on the “juvenile” shtick. Presenter Mike Graham handled him robustly, with mixed scepticism and outrage. Pound insisted it is impossible for bloggers to be sued for libel because they are in cyberspace; virtually implying that Downing Street had no other way to counter blogs “spreading rumours and tittle tattle” other than to do what McBride and Draper did (while of course condemning the e-mails). Asking the presenter “what would you do?”Is Pound actually right to say no blogger/website etc has been sued for libel? Graham objected to the way in which Pound segued talk of Fawkes with talk of pornographic websites, against which no action can be taken because they spring up elsewhere when closed down.

    Why do they keep repeating the fiction that the email traffic was merely between McBride and Draper, when the emails are addressed explicitly to “Gents” – indicating the existence of – at the least – one other co-conspirator?

    Is Master Fawkes soon to name new names? I very much hope so. This affair is like a small chink of light when the scales are torn at last from men’s eyes, and all can see that New Labour propaganda has worked upon us all like a false collective consciousness, oppressing all independent thought under a stinking blanket of night and fog.

    StrongholdBarricades says:

    McBride has only moved position, he is still in Downing Street, his resignation allows him access to his pension without the negativity of being sacked by Brown.

    By not being sacked, Brown is seen to tacitly approve of this “campaign” and therefore he should take the blame. McBride is currently being the fall guy, but you’re through the lines now…don’t worry about looting the baggage train we need to ensure a much greater renewal is possible, take Byrne if you can but ensure you get the “money shot”.

    Draper as a close confident of Mandy adequately demonstrates what his rhetoric supports, and surely there is no resurrection technique available to bring back his career

    It would be nice to now get a vote of “no confidence” in the house on this matter, and let us see how many of those on the labour side will still seek to shore up their leader’s methods

    The election winner then gets the opportunity of a longer mandate to solve the financial situation of the country.

    The trouble is they can’t sack Draper, he isn’t staff. Unlike the Apprentice you have to employ people before you can fire them. LabourList was run by them at arms length via Draper, cut off Draper and they cut off LabourList. Now LL might not be much, but it has a following among the Labour Party and there’s no knowings what Draper knows and/or has on them. I’m guessing he gets deflated slowly.

    Anonymous, in answer to your question about DVD Dachau (Comment 332 – 12.04.09), one of the DVD’s bases in Germany is said to be located to the right of the railway line that runs through Unterweilbach, Prittlbach and Hebertshausen into Dachau. It is adjacent to the Hebertshausen Bahnhof in an empty area ending in a very steep bank, against which 8,000 Soviet prisoners of war were shot dead in cold blood during the Second World War. Set into the bank is an odd-looking building with a security gate approached by a path. Beyond this gated entrance is a doorway. Inside the doorway, investigators have photographed evidence of recently used black magic paraphernalia.

    The really sad thing is Mr. Fawke’s is yet to realise that he has inadvertadely done most of mr. Mcbride’s bidding for him.

    McBride wanted the following rumours to appear in the mass media.

    1: Cameron has some sort of STD ( duh, heard it rumoured for a number of years anyway)

    2: Osborne is a toff idiot, who dresses up in drag (duh. everyone knew that anyway)

    3: Tory MPs generally use the commons to help their big business friend and family (a give, surel)

    He was going to do this by setting up a seemingly neutral blog, and leak the information to it. Errr, like this site I guess. But for Labour.

    Then Mr. Fawke’s gets given the info, by his tory paymasters, and knowing he couldn’t possibly keep his mouth shut, he does the smearing for McBride. McBride doesn’t even have to release it himself.

    Now the front pages are full of (and will be for weeks) the smears about Cameron and Osborne.

    Most likely, persuading people to come forward and sell other murky secrets about top tories.

    The police are investigating the criminal hacking of government e-mail accounts, which will probably come back to haunt Mr. Fawke’s cronies.

    And all McBride has had to do is fall on his sword for the public.

    Like it or not Mr. Fawkes, with the worldwide media coverage of the leaks, the entire planet are talking about Cameron’s murky STD past, and George Osborne being a cross dresser. It even made the Wall Street Journal this morning.

    And Gordon hasn’t lifted a finger. Doesn’t even acknowledged that he knew about it.

    Because the buffoonary of the tory backed blog network did all the work for him.

    All he did was give them enough rope to hang themselves. And stooges like Fawke’s couldn’t help but put his foot in it

    Lets clean up British politics says:

    Some remaining questions that the media should be asking:

    1. What was the reaction of Whelan and the other recipiants of the obscene e-mails on seeing what Draper and McBride wrote? Surely the right course of action should have been to contact McBride’s Cabinet Office supervisor about the inappropriate use of civil service resources? They need to apologise to Mrs Osborne et al. for not challenging McBride’s disgusting slurs

    2. How much did Gordon Brown and other senior Labour people know about McBride’s slander strategy? Has this strategy been used before by team Brown? Has Brown ever encouraged or authorised his special advisers to slander political opponents? Has Brown ever encouraged or authorised his special advisors to spread gossip to journalists about other politicians families/personal lives?

    3. Will McBride continue to serve Brown/the Labour party in any way? Surely the appropriate punishment for this level of indecency is permanent banishment? Is this resignation a real resignation?

    4. How did Guido get hold of the e-mails? Is Draper’s “my e-mail was hacked” bleat yet another slander?

    5. Given the public outrage at McBride’s slanders isn’t it time now to clean up political debate in the UK? When will blogs like this remove all unfounded gossip posted as comments? Can the leaders of the political parties promise to fight fair over the next 15 months? Surely gossip about politician’s partners or distant events in their personal life has no place in 21st-century politics?

    Does no-one else see the irony of self-righteous blathering about “vile smears” and leaks” on a web site, that was basically set up by Tory HQ, as a libel-protected platform, to release smears and leaks on to?

    As in, Mr. Fawkes isn’t even brave enough to do his bidding in the UK. He’s been safely moved off-shore, by his blue-blooded paymasters, to avoid legal moves by his targets.

    That and the fact that his e-mail address was found to be on a Tory Party server.

    I guess (wrongly) leaking the fact that John Prescott was an adulterer (completely false) on here is just good honest fun.

    Whereas revealing Cameron has some ghastly STD, is some sort of moral outrage in middle England.

  578. 578

    I think you are talking rubbish with regards to this being a plan to get these smears “out” in the MSM via Guido, but I do fear that some people partly believe them and this may not be such an absolute Win/Win situation for the Conservatives as currently thought if some of this made up artificial mud (astro-mud?) sticks. As I wrote on my blog today’s top search term for people arriving at my blog are “david cameron’s embarrassing illness” followed by the rather telling search of “what is david cameron’s embarrassing illness?” All typed it seems as a matter of fact!

    With the public opinion of politicians so low, is there a risk people take the view – as one person I know has despite my attempts to change their view – that it’s “six to one, a half dozen to the other” and “an elaboration but there’s no smoke without fire”? In Harriet Harman’s Court of Public Opinion, everyone is guilty until proven innocent it seems. An apology from Downing Street is vital.

    re: Let’s clean up British Politics

    “how did Guido get hold of the e-mails”.

    I think the fact that Guido has refused to name who handed him the e-mails, shows you that it is someone he is wishing to protect.

    And then you add the fact that he’s received numerous leaks from this very same source, over the last 5 years, which he has published on here. To me, this makes it pretty obvious that it’s a tory source.

    That’s what I don’t get about the whole issue. Tory’s have been leaking confidential memos, e-mails to the press for the last 18 months. Mostly via sites like this.

    Now they are bleating about the fact that they are the subject of some of them.

    Live by the sword, die by the sword. If Cameron wants to live in a world of sleaze, spin and leaks, he can’t be surprised that he’s the subject of some of it.

    A lot of drivel about ‘hacked’ emails. largely from Derek Draper, who is a self-confessed computer illiterate. If you send an email it goes to lots of places, including numerous mail servers. It is in plain text at all of those locations unless you encrypt it. Even if it is encrypted then it becomes plain text at all endpoints, and the indications are that the email conversation had several endpoints. All it takes is one person with access to intermediate servers for unencrypted text or any of the endpoints and a flash drive and you have your data. No cybernetic master-criminal required. The most likely explanation in this case is a whistle-blower who reacted like most sane and normal people would to this content, with appalled disgust.

    freedom from Scotland sounds good for me – the ones who did great deeds have all left now, leaving a gene pool that’s a sort of slurry with a whinge on top.

    Geoffrey says:

    Yes, they can’t afford the line of play that starts with – Labour ministers are disempowered – and goes on to -because they cannot be trusted and are incompetent – and leads to – because the paranoid leader can only cope with ‘yes people’

    That would be Tom ‘next domino’ Watson

    Geoffrey says:

    That’s been bothering me a bit too – but I really don’t want to beliave that the BBC has a pro Labour agenda

    Geoffrey says:

    Hacking seems unlikely to me. I’d guess someone to whom it was sent or forwarded could perhaps not have had a strong enough stomach to go all the way with the Labour cause

    It’s instructive to have measured how long it took Mandy to get his team up in cyber, how disorganised they were when the ‘big wing’ arrived, how much resistance they met from the denizons and how half hearted they quickly became.

    how by telling the truth?

    Are Sky really Skynet? says:

    You are right Mr Christopher. The British State has some extremely nasty elements to it, as the Queen herself once acknowledged. David Kelly, John Charles De Menezes, Blair Peach, Ian Tomlinson… the death rate keeps rising, and when things get tough, people mysteriously seem to die more often…

    Keep safe Guido.

    By the way, if you need any help hauling barrels into cellars do let me know – figuratively speaking of course ; )

    An innocent bystander says:

    Have you ever heard of the old Hollies record “He’s King Midas in Reverse”? Perhaps the Tories should consider using it as part of the next General Election Campaign. The one thing that is certain, in these days of uncertainty, is the unerring ‘Brown’ Touch displayed by our glorious leader!

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
