+++ Maguire Helped Plan Red Rag+++

Ray Collins

News of the World press release below, full story here:

THE VILE website at the centre of the vicious plot to smear top Tories was set up with the help of the boss of the Labour Party, the News of the World can sensationally reveal today.

A new email shows that Labour’s General Secretary Ray Collins chaired a secret meeting to create the Red Rag website now ensnared in the Smeargate scandal.

The email’s existence links the dirty tricks site to the very TOP of the Labour Party.

And it exposes the LIE, put out by Downing Street, and repeated by government ministers this week, that the smears project was just a minor aberration cooked up by a couple of renegades acting alone—and which would never have seen light of day.

The new email, written by Labour’s then internet campaign chief Derek Draper, PROVES that the meeting took place, reveals WHO was there, WHERE it was held and WHAT was on the agenda. It shows that Collins travelled across Westminster for a summit in the offices of trade union bigwig Charlie Whelan. Whelan, one of Gordon Brown’s closest friends and his former chief spin doctor, was described last night by a Labour insider as the Prime Minister’s “unofficial Mr Fix-It”.

Joining Collins and Whelan at the meeting were the two men whose leaked smear emails later brought the scandal to light: Damian McBride and Draper.

McBride, another of the Prime Minister’s closest aides, was forced to resign last week after it emerged that he and Draper conspired to spread false and sinister stories about Tory leader David Cameron, Shadow Chancellor George Osborne and other Tories.

Draper has since been cold-shouldered by the party, too.

Also in the room was the man who was to be the public face of Red Rag, Unite press officer Andrew Dodgshon, as well as political journalist Kevin Maguire, who was there in a private capacity.

News of the meeting, and the presence at it of the Labour Party’s General Secretary, will horrify and appal senior party workers and Labour MPs who have already been disgusted by the smear campaign.

The email reveals the meeting took place on December 1 last year at Unite’s London HQ, on King’s Street, Westminster, seven weeks before McBride sent an explosive email to Draper outlining “stories” for the site.

Last week, after the News of the World’s revelations about the shocking extent of the smears, Collins slammed McBride and Draper, while he avoided mentioning his own role in the scandal.

Collins carefully followed a line taken by Derek Draper, husband of GMTV’s Kate Garraway, and McBride that they acted alone.

Draper claimed: “The idea that it was a big project orchestrated in Downing Street is ridiculous.”

However, our revelations show that Collins knew about the Red Rag site more than four months ago and did NOTHING to stop it—in fact he did the opposite.

Collins also tried to distance himself from Draper last week.

“I want to reiterate that Derek Draper does not hold a position or role with the Labour Party and this will remain the case,” he said.

Yet the General Secretary himself recruited Draper last year to try to set up a unit inside the Labour Party to attack the Tories using the internet.

We can reveal that despite internal opposition Collins granted Draper a pass to Labour Party HQ in Westminster, and even allowed him a Labour Party email account.

Both were quietly rescinded by Collins this week after furious protests from staff following our Smeargate revelations.

The Red Rag site was borne out out of those foundations, and was set up on November 4, 2008, weeks before the secret meeting.

A shocked Labour party insider told us: “It is devastating that Collins was there. It was a meeting called to set up, run and work out how to finance the Red Rag site.

“It’s no coincidence either that it wasn’t held at Labour Party HQ, or that it was at Charlie Whelan’s offices in Unite.

“Whelan is back as Gordon Brown’s unofficial Mr Fix-it, and he’s now so powerful that he’s effectively running the party.

“If anyone in the party was still daft enough to believe the Downing Street line about this being minor, this email finally exposes that lie.” Whelan was copied in to the vile emails between McBride and Draper and his role in the meeting at the Unite HQ raises further questions about how closely the union was involved in the dirty tricks campaign.

He is political director of Unite, which has two million members.

It is now one of the largest donor to the Labour Party, and it’s cash is effectively paying the near-bankrupt party’s wages as it struggles to manage debts topping £16million.

Last night Collins, himself a former assistant general secretary of Unite, admitted he attended the Red Rag website meeting but insisted he did not know about the McBride smears.

He told us: “I have had no knowledge whatsoever of any smears and found the stories and reports of the last week absolutely disgusting.

“I did attend a meeting at the Unite Head Office on December 1 to discuss online digital campaigning and how we could support and encourage left of centre websites and bloggers.

“This meeting was not about scurrilous rumour, personal attacks or smears as I would have been furious that such things could be seen as legitimate tools of political debate.”

Guido said it was strange that Maguire missed the scoop

        If all the MPs vote how they were elected ‘in the interests of the consituency’ rather than with party lines, people would surely feel more aligned with parliament and their representative.

        Bob,

        I wasn’t aware that this blog had a party affiliation – I regularly comment, and despite being traditional working class, Methodist Labour, noone has ever given me any grief apart from the xxx_Pride trolls.

        I despise New Labour and all they stand for – especially Brown and his coterie of lying cheating troughing scum. Everybody else I know does too, and would probably despise you too if they met you.

        Speak for yourself. In my experience the wider British electorate don’t take too kindly to …

        Visually impaired kilt-wearers and their coterie openly deriding, and legislating against :-
        White English people, in particular white men
        Men and women who pay income tax on low earnings
        Working families
        Married couples and their families.

        We don’t take kindly to them:-
        Feathering their own nests at our expense.
        Cheating on their expenses, which are subsidised by every single person who pays VAT.
        Manipulating votes and changing electoral areas for their own benefit.
        Taking money from council tax payers in the south because they are “rich” and giving it to lazy people elsewhere in the country.
        Giving financial benefits to those too lazy to go to work that are greater than the minimum wage.

        We don’t take kindly to them :-
        Taking us into an illegal war, by telling lies.
        Manipulating statistics.
        Lying about threats national security.
        Being complicit in politicising the Police Force.
        Introducing petty crimes that incur swingeing fixed-penalty fines imposed by PCSOs who know little of the law.
        Creating a surveillance and database society that diminishes personal freedoms.

        We don’t take kindly to them :-
        Dumbing down education to ensure there is an ill-educated electorate, incapable of understanding anything but trivia.
        Introducing an academic apartheid, that benefits students north of the border, voted in by MPs north of the border.

        And these are just a few of the things “the wider British public” don’t take kindly to. If you aren’t aware of this you must be living in some little bubble, safely cocooned against everything that ordinary people have to put up with every single day

    Much more of this and Labour MPs will have to acknowledge that the best chance they have of salvaging their seats, at the next general election, would be to dump Brown and install a new leader. Brown cannot recover. As Nixon found out, disagreement over policies are one thing, but inspiring this level personal disgust among voters is fatal.

    Labour MPs lack the guts get rid of Brown but unlike the Tories there are no Men in Grey Suits to do the deed. So unless Labour’s union funders use their financial muscle to wield the knife, there won’t be much of Party left after the next election, taking millions of pounds of union members’ money down with it.

Simply blog on Guido and through Meltwater your blog ends up on Gordon Browns desk, in concentrated form (in big letters using a Sharpie pen no doubt) . Meltwater should also know that if they include any of my blogs in their digest, I also with Guido -if on his blog – retain copyright and expect a minimum £1 a word in fees. A simple freedom of information request to Number 10 to release all the Meltwater reports will keep this site going for another decade. So get onto it Guido , a few more spooks to slay. Your work is only just beginning…

        Should point out that the use of sich a media company usually means that the client has little to show his masters in tgerms of positive press comment so producing (by proxy) a heavyweight tome the meltwater report looks impressive and gives credence to the lie that Mcbride is on top of things when in reality he just had to rip off the executive summary.. probably been getting way with this for years and still drawing his six figure salary ( err paid for by the taxpayer) it really makes you weep.

    In the event that the labour MP’s decide to try to force Brown out, How can labour find a credible way to replace Brown? They cannot! It is impossible.

    Do you not recall at the time of his coup against Blair in 2007 that ALL the other senior Labour MP’s were happily and loyally filing round all the newsrooms to instruct us peons how wonderful Brown is, how UNIQUELY capable he is and how there was NO OTHER CANDIDATE ANYWHERE NEAR HIS CALIBER in the labour party. That he was head and shoulders above EVERYONE else.

    If they try to jettison Brown now, these discredited fuckwits and failures MUST be reminded what they were so insistent on telling us back then.

    They must be asked, OFTEN, If Brown is now so bad that he cannot be considered worthy of running the labour party or the country by his OWN side, then, how the hell is any other labour MP likely to be any better when all the leading labour MP’s themselves were constantly banging on about how superior Brown was to all of them, only 18 months ago.

    SO if they are now going to be telling the country that Brown is now a liability, then it follows that every potential successor would be even WORSE. Just following and applying their own logic.

    Thank you Guido for confirming that throughout all that time Maguire had a New Labour hand shoved up his backside working him. I knew that no one, not even Maguire himself, could seriously believe the insane cobblers he was coming out with.

    But now that Maguire has been outed as a New Labour propaganda stooge, I’m starting to think about all the other voices I’ve heard in the media and on the BBC, about all the times I doubted whether the speaker was actually living on the same planet as me or my workmates as we were shouting insults at the radio (yes, I’m looking at you Jeremy Vine)

    How many people in the media have been in on New Labour meetings getting their propaganda straight…and what was in it for them ?

    You’ve excelled yourself again. I hope it means that we finally have the truth about Tom Watson and Charlie Whelan – if not I hope the truth abouth them is coming soon.

    I think if something like this broke on our side of the Atlantic, i.e Democrat smear machine revealed, the mainstream media would try to cover it up, and the zombies who voted for Obama would just shrug it off. We actually have a few isolated examples already, but most people don’t seem to care. The media have explained it to them.

    In addition to his salaried UNITE UNION job, Charlie Whelan seems to have a number of lucrative sidelines, writing columns for his local newspaper, setting up Red Rag, writing blogs, sending out news releases, appearing on radio and tv, usually getting paid for it. What I would ask is how much of his UNITE salaried time is devoted to these extra activities and is he also using the Unions office, telephone, internet, computing and other resources? Does Whelan clain travel expenses and hotel expenses from Unite for these trips to London, claiming it’s Union business? A look at his desk diary by union auditors would be telling… would Indeed did Whelan give or lend Draper a Dell base station (CPU) -property of UNITE? Draper was pictured with one in a laundry bag getting into a taxi! You don’t normally take the desk computer with you unless the content of the hard drive is so “HOT” you have to take it with you! Where is that computer now? Does it belong to UNITE and where have UNITE agreed to take part , ie meetings, minutes, resolutions and so on.. Guido might also like to take another look at the media agency acting as the conduit for labourlist. I blooged on Guido that the agency Boasted they had set up a spoof website having a go at the tories and the press release is on their website for all to see.

    The role of PR WEEK in all of this also needs to be examined as for a long while Whelan had a regular column in that trade paper, critical comment of the column and many so called news stories by PR WEEK,( many straight lifts from the nationals and blogging sites) has always been ignored by PR WEEK unless it suits its own agenda.

    Even to get a simply apology PR WEEK bats way above its weight, threatening legal hellfire and brimstone – an empty threat as Haymarkets history on legal threats and Court Action is mainly hot air as the newish PR WEEK editor will no doubt find out.

    You could make it up says:

    Wiki……Ray Collins (born c.1955) is a British trade unionist who was appointed General Secretary of the Labour Party on 12 June 2008.[1]

    Collins was appointed Central Office Manager of the Transport and General Workers’ Union in 1984 and held essentially the same post until 2008, being redesignated Head of Administration in the 1990s and Assistant General Secretary in 1999.

    Collins has been a member of the Labour Party for over thirty years and has campaigned for the party in every General Election since 1970. He is TGWU representative on the Labour Party National Policy Forum and a member of Labour’s National Constitutional Committee.

    In December 2007 he was named the 27th most influential LGBT person in British politics by Pink News.[2] He helped steer the TGWU into a merger with Amicus, creating Unite, one of the largest trade unions in the country. Collins took the helm as the party is reportedly close to bankruptcy. In May, Electoral Commission figures showed the party was £17.8 million in debt.[3]

    Ray has the credentials to suit the ZanuLiebour Party…..

    The more I read on this site, the more I think how obtuse and thick most of the posters are. Do you really not see that our blogger is a raving right wing Tory who will twist everything to the advantage of his God i.e. the leader of the Tory party whoever it happens to be at the time. the thought of Cameron (who has never held a position needing a decision of any importance) in charge of our defence, hospitals, schools, police fills me with dread. The thought of Osborne being in charge of the Treasury is enough to make those with hard earned money quake intheir shoes. Its like being asked to accept a rat in a hen house. He will hit the middle and working classes with Tory taxes like VAT (don’t forget it was the Tories who increased VAT from 8% to 17.5%). a tax that hits the lower paid but the rich can pay without any problem. He will reduce income tax for his rich friends whilst piling on the taxes on things we use such as fuel, petrol,diesel,clothing etc. etc. He will cut funds to the NHS, Schools (unless public where he will give tax concessions), the police, fire Service – you name it he will cut it. Voters have very short memories. Waits of 2 years or more for hospital treatment, schools falling to pieces, school equipment, even books, out of date and in very short supply. Nurse, teachers, police, firefighters etc. all on very low pay which this government have increased more than any government in History. Old age pensioners have had their pensions increased more under this Government than under any tory one in history. Remember the £300 (this year was £400 + another £60) heating allowance. This is non taxable. The Tories want to include it into the pension and tax it!! Inflation is at its lowest for years. It will rocket under the Tories as last time. I remember the 15% interest on my mortgage under Margaret Thatcher and the thousands who went into negative equity and the thousands who lost their homes. Compared to the Tory years those with a mortgage today are considerably better off. Before the brainless start shouting abuse – no I am not a member of the Labour Party just somebody with a long memory and grateful that I and my family can get treatment within weeks and that my younger members have decent school buildings with plenty of modern equipment. We have more teachers today than we have ever had. Elect the Tories and watch teachers losing their jobs when the funds are cut. We have more doctors, nurse and other health professionals than at any time under the Tories – watch the nurses and others being made redundant if the Tries get into power. I can also afford to have my heating on and not be afraid to have a bath, something I could not say under the Tories. BEFORE YOU VOTE – go to your library and read up on the Tory years. do you really want the public school boys who have never been broke in their lives running our country? Do you really want these people who think they are the elite and consider all the rest of you lower class scum only fit to work till you drop for their benefit?
    If you do vote Tory do not ever complain when everything I have said happens.

    I wonder how long this will survive on this site as it is run by a Tory?
