Did Blears Leak Jacqui’s Exit to Destabilise Gordon?

A lesson Guido learnt the hard way in his younger days was “never antagonise a redhead”.   Could Gordon be about to learn the same lesson?

It has been bothering Guido that he couldn’t see the logic for anyone leaking Jacqui’s exit plans. Certainly doesn’t make sense for Brown central to leak it (contrary to LabourList’s claim).  Guido was putting the leak in the cock-up rather than the conspiracy category.  However the Blears theory makes some sense – Blears feels aggrieved that she got roughed up by Brown over expenses in a way that Darling (until yesterday) Hoon and Purnell did not.   She also feels imperilled by the reshuffle and of course she isn’t really a fan of Gordon.  By destabilising Gordon and revealing ahead of the re-shuffle that a woman is already leaving cabinet she shores up her own position.  She also scores some brownie points for the future by laying some useful ground-work for Alan Johnson…

    Blears gone before she is booted. No-one very surprised.

    Her resignation statement spoke of “ordinary people” and returning to the grass roots. Not a peep about Brown. Shame the ordinary people think she’s the number one trougher and piggy.

    After the Euros she might now join luminaries such as Charles Clarke in calling for Brown to go. Will it topple him ? If she wasn’t such a hate figure to the public and mired in the Expenses shit definitely.

    But she’s damaged goods.

    Still, the odds on Brown going have shortened.

    This is Nothing to do with expenses. Blears and Smith know they aren’t going to be ministers after the next election.

    Anyone but Gordon... says:

    They are dropping like flies now…who’s next ?
    Does Gordon have enough MP’s untainted by the expenses scandal to now even form a reshuffled cabinet ?
    Who in their right minds would even accept a cabinet position in a Government that is going down the pan faster than a flushed turd ?
    Surely accepting a cabinet postion now is political suicide.
    This is now a Government in meltdown, who on earth would want to be a part of it ?
    Roll on the debate next week on the dissolution of Parliament…or will Gordon call an election anyway rather than risk the embarrasment of defeat, as Michael Martin would have done if the confidence motion on the speaker had gone ahead.

    Hope Labour get totally wasted tomorrow.

    Hazel’s cabinet career is over and she knows it. She was getting revenge, and why the hell not? I’d put the boot in too if a useless prime minister had slagged me off to the televised world as a scapegoat.

    My only disappointment is she hasn’t been prosecuted by the police. Brown will probably retaliate by giving the nod to inspector knacker as a final act of vengeance for her backstabbing while his ‘unsinkable’ ship disappears beneath the waves.
    But that’s something Gordon’s an expert in as well, backstabbing, he does it so well as Blair discovered. A cabinet of vipers will bite automatically, it’s all they know. And Brown is the biggest viper of the lot of them and surrounded by vipers, I feel so very very sorry for him. Well actually I don’t. It’s almost like some kind of karma is being visited on him.

    Surely, there’s no need for a conspiracy theory to explain Blears and Smith’s resignations?

Also, by going now they’re avoiding any shit Brown might have slung their way, via whoever’s now doing McBride’s job, to discredit them in the run-up to the reshuffle. Only surprising thing is why Darling hasn’t resigned yet for the same reasons. Maybe he’s been promised the Home Office.

    Why ? Nothing is absolutely certain.

    Brown still has to resign. Blears was always going to be history.

    Yes it’s a calculated blow but it’s not from anyone Brown gives a shit about and Blears will get almost zero support for the Leadership after her expenses quagmire.

    I expect Mandy is on the phone right now telling her how unfortunate it is that her expenses might have to go to the C.P.S. As he wants to be Foreign Secretary very badly and Blears little hissy fit is spoiling his big day.

    Cetainly he COULD go and it is far more likely now. But remember that no-one on the Labour backbenches wants an Election right now and they fear that more than anything else as they are utterly terrified that Brown going might provoke it.

    Does Brown himself think he must go ? That’s the most important thing.

    Some were talking about a mass walkout from the Cabinet today which would clearly have finished him. This is one dead woman walking quitting without criticising Brown in the slightest in her statement.

    Watch P.M.Q’s and we will get a clearer view.

    I repeat nothing is certain yet.

    I for one would be delighted if Brown went but you have to remember all the other times that the soothsayers predicted Brown was dead.
    Not until you see him make the statement will I believe it.

    Will there be much sympathy for Blears on the backbenches or in the country ? As her piggery was utterly disgusting.

    I weep no tears for the little munchkin and I also well remember the hundreds of posts decrying her on here who were disgusted and appalled.

    Just a thought, but I wonder if people are making too much of all this shit hitting the fan just before an election? Does it actually make any difference? Sure, it doesn’t look good for Labour, but I would have thought that things are already so bad for Labour that this won’t make any material difference. Some people will always vote Labour no matter what happens, and they’ll still vote Labour. Some people may have voted Labour in the past and will have been put off voting Labour this time, but unless they’ve been living on Mars for the last couple of years they’d probably already have decided not to vote Labour before Smith or Blears resigned.

    Smith (and now Blears) have spoilt his game by jumping ship first. Leaking Smith’s exit was all Brown was left with in this power-play. It stinks of Brown to me.

    Having schemed and plotted and blackmailed his way to being an unelected Prime Mincer without the courage to try for a mandate of his own, he is now in danger of being ousted by plotters desperate to try and save something from the wreckage of the Labour Party.

    He is truly the architect of his own disaster. His reputation for financial competence is now in shreds, and the “No More Boom and Bust” mantra seems to have been abandoned along with prudence and “fiscal responsibility”. His brutal treatment of anyone who may or may not have been a rival for the top job he craved has left him with very few real friends in the PLP. He is losing what little support he still has from such as Alastair Darling through his failure to actively support them in the expenses scandals that they are almost all caught up in.

    And now, facing wipeout in the local and EUSSR elections, his only real weapon, the re-shuffle, has been pre-empted by The Fat Lodger and made almost useless by his pathetic attempt to get a Queen-free (appart from him!) photo-opportunity with Obama at the D-Day remembrances. It means he has to be in France when he desperately needs to be in Downing Strasse making sure that the rebellious don’t get the chance to wield the knife.

    The point about Howe was that he was vocalising that which had been unspoken but widely supported. It triggered a contest that the Conservative Party badly wanted while right now Labour does not want a competition. And Howe wasn’t mired in Expenses shit. Howe was a bit of an old duffer but still had a grudging respect despite that which is precisely why he was so effective

    The question is does Blears know where the bodies are buried and how far will she go ? Because she’s going up against Mandy and Brown and they are unscrupulous in what they will do.

    Where’s the queen going to be Saturday whilst he’s on the beach?

    What’s her family’s name?

    Will Gordon be asking HM to dissolve Parliament by Glorious Goodwood…

    I’d have a flutter on that whilst the Queen’s enjoying the Derby…

    Exactly. They are tearing each other’s throats out. The plan is to execute Brown and save their own skins. Alan Johnson is controlled by the CIA, he was selected by them a long time ago and sent on training courses. NEWLAB is dying as is globalism. You are witnessing the END of a historical epoch. You are witnessing the birthpangs of true democracy. It may be bloody or peaceful we dont know yet.

    And now Brown doesn’t even have to offer her a pretend makework job now.

    Of course the timing means this can’t be seen as anything other than a fuck you to Brown and anyone pretending otherwise is a Liar.

    I’ve taken this week off work to do a little DIY on my house, one of the things I was looking forward to was the inevitable door-knocking from the Labour councillor and his henchmen. I live in Blackburn, Lancashire in one of the few remaining white, working (admittedly a rarity) class areas and we are usually bombarded by leaflets, baby kissing, megaphones on hire-vans and the like. Nothing. Not a single red rosetted cretin.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
