Post-Election On-Message “Lines to Take” from Labour HQ

If you have ever wondered how it is that all the broadcasters always seem to end up with on-message Labour talking-heads spouting exactly the same drivel after an election, here is why – Labour HQ emails everyone a briefing on “lines to take” before they go on air.  The degree of control demanded by New Labour means ambitious MPs can’t be allowed to think up their own answers.

Hence we end up with a series of robotic talking heads mouthing the party line.  Backbenchers and cabinet ministers alike will all parrot the same form of words regardless of the question asked.  If you were watching the news yesterday you will have heard the script.  Guido is grateful to a “real socialist” co-conspirator for providing yesterday’s “lines to take”.  If you want to see it, Guido has uploaded the dull script to here.   Hopefully the next leader of the Labour Party will be less Stalinist and permit Labour MPs to think for themselves…

UPDATE : It appears that Paul Waugh has blogged this already.

        This is one of the very reasons everyone loathes them, everyone spouting the same old shite.

        Message to the Labour Party, we are not fools can you stop taking us for one.

        Oh and fuck off.

          It is pitiful. It’s all starting to make me feel a little queasy. There is a kind of mindless automaton, out of control, blindly flailing, pathetic, and no-one seems to know how to put it out of its misery.

          NuLab used this ruse of prepared rep-lies and it worked for them at first, but they’ve become addicted to it and now can’t stop, but the public have now developed a resistance (to continue the medical analogy) and find it even more unpalatable than the plain truth.
          This is where Blears got her rant wrong last year, she claimed it was the blogs’ “corrosive” effect on public perceptions that was lowering the voters opinion of politicians when in reality it was NuLabs micro-management – of which Gordon Brown is a prime exponent.

        I think you will find it wasn’t only for “Labour talking heads,” a number of newsreaders on the Beeb, yesterday, were using the exact same phrases.
        Starting with the Today programme, radio 4.

          Don’t be naive. The day after the next election the BBC’s sets and titles will be re-coloured blue and they will immediately toe the new party line.

          That’s what Pravda is for.

          I don’t ever remember the Beeb being being slightly Tory friendly.
          Breaking it up on the second day of a new government would be my suggestion but I’ve heard that there is no appetite for such a thing within the party.

          I’d like to see Labour friendly reporters skewered – I suppose that won’t leave many really.

          And that Labour crony and placeman Sir Michael Lyons chairman of the BBC Trust complains that Conservative plans to curtail the obscene flow of largesse to the BBC would be “a recipe for curbing the editorial independence of the BBC”

        It is a depressing fact of life though, Big G. Do you think the Tories will be any different? With 24 hour news media to satisfy (and lets be honest michief making blogs like yours seizing on any little off message comment) it’s what a political party has to do. Otherwise they spend their entire time firefighting the media.

          I can not really see the Tories forcing BBC News to undergo “adjustment training” in quite the same way that Blair made them do, nor can I see David Cameron forcing his own selected nominees into production positions in the BBC. If he does have the sense then Cameron could do pretty well by drastically reducing the burden by the BBC on the taxpayer (plenty of national and international advertising out there) and reappointing Greg Dyke as DG, instead of that professional apologist and Brownite Thompson.

          Too true – we get the same spun lines from the Opposition too. It is time for interviewers to challenge these talking heads by asking them whether they are expressing their view or their party line. Broadcasters are too ready to provide a platform for this pre-prepared garbage – or perhaps they think the politicos just dig their own grave when they all mouth the same PR soundbites?

          Nope he stopped regulating THE CURRENCY.

          The government/regulators decides on the volume of credit in the economy.

          Banks decide who it goes to.

          The regulator decided (in error) that as much credit as could possibly be lent was a good thing. Governments loved this as it meant credit was used for taxable things and the amount of revenue they were extorting rose.

          “‘You may think I oughtn’t to have a Waterford grapefruit dish. But I do. And I ate out of it today,’ he said.

          Sir Gerald, 79, whose £8,865 claim for a 40in LCD Bang & Olufsen TV was rejected, claimed to live ‘modestly’. However his expense claims also include:
          - £225 for a Viceroy Barley rollerball pen, purchased at Selfridges department store in London’s Oxford Street in March 2007.
          - $41.18 for a doormat he bought at New York’s Museum of Modern Art Design Store in April 2006.

          - £4.60 for a ‘replacement plastic cutlery tray’ from the Gracious Home store in New York in July 2007.

          “Sir Gerald accepted his claim was ‘bizarre’ and would not go down well with his constituents in Gorton, Manchester.

          But he explained he had to make it because of his condition.
          He said: ‘Because I’ve got this self-diagnosed OCD, I do things according to rules that I’ve created. I freely acknowledge it was daft and the Commons were quite right to say, “No, you can’t have that on public money.”

          ‘I’m sure that people in Gorton would raise their eyebrows about a thing like that.’

          Explaining why he needed two Waterford bowls, Sir Gerald said: ‘As part of my OCD, I have the same breakfast when I’m at home both in London and Manchester every day,’ he said.

          ‘Half a grapefruit, a bowl of muesli with semi-skimmed milk and a cup of coffee with a Rich Tea biscuit. That’s breakfast.’

          When a cleaner broke one of the dishes, he felt the need to buy a replacement.

          Oh he is fucking ” bizarre” alright.

          Now what was it that the champagne socialist fuckitt headed… oh yes i remember, ” Make poverty history”

      The only way Brown gets out of being despised by the public, even a little, is to actually DO something for once.

      Instead of tlaking about reforms and setting up endless useless fucking talking shops he would implement and legislate sweeping and badly needed reforms as soon as he could.

      But he’s a ditherer and a coward and his “age of change” after Blair was just more of the same pathetic PR bullshit. All talk no action.

      So let him sit in ihis bunker and do nothing but keep his enemies at bay and spin against them for 12 months. Because at the end of it he will get no reward from the voter even if the recession lifts slightly.

      He’s finished because he doesn’t have any ideas and is too scared to go for real reform.

    I consider myself a former labour supporter but cancelled my Labour party membership on the day Blair took us into iraq and haven’t voted for them since. This unnecessary destruction is all sad to see, Gordon is so useless. I am not sure what he is like personally but every time I see him giving an interview I just cant understand how he can be such an incompetent communicator how did anyone ever thing he would make a good leader.

    You can tell Brown doesn’t like it and that is why he tried to keep the Queen out of the celebrations. It is the best reason to keep the monarchy, Prime Ministers are reminded that they are just the Queen’s servants.

    It’s official I am suffering from writers block. I am so mad that my brain has stopped working and I am reduced to outbursts normally associated with those suffering from the sad but unfortunate mental condition known as Tourette’s Syndrome. Whilst sitting watching Quasimodo lie his face off during his cabinet reshuffle yesterday with my parents, I found myself spitting and shouting Hunt ,Hunt, Hunt in such a manor that you may be forgiven for thinking that I was impersonating Ben Kingsley’s performance in Sexy Beast. At one point my mum touched my hand and said “calm down dear it’s only an advert”, as more four letter tirades leaked out of my body as if said by some alien voice that I had no control of.

    As I switched from channel to channel looking for some form of journalism that wasn’t just a load of biased smear against the Tories I realised that my brain had gone into shut down mode as a safety precaution. You see I think we have all had the Gordon Brown debate so many times now that to make the same point one tries to say it in more refined and creative way. The problem is My brain is now trying to invent words to describe him as I have over used the entire English language and I am bored of it. Yes, Bored of my mind, bored of my own voice repeating that Gorgon Brown is the biggest Hunt in the world. Bigger than Mugabe, bigger than George Bush, bigger even than that giant rock in Thailand that, well looks like a Hunt.

    The voices are telling me that I need a break, some fun for example, it hints that a month in an opium den in Cambodia would be a great idea. And I have to agree it is tempting. Imagine going into a deep mind cleansing sleep doing battle with all your demons and then waking up 30 days later and finding out that yes it had all been some horrible dream and that it was all just a metaphor for the fact that I hadn’t been laid for a while.

    I mean there must be some Divine force at work here as I tell myself repeatedly that you just “could not make this up”. Was I stuck in a dream written by Hunter S Thompson staring me as a drug fuelled lunatic hell bent on doing the last thing that you could imagine. Sadly I am afraid to say I am not. I am quite sane and this is all very much real. Hunt, Hunt, Hunt.

    Watching the so called news conference yesterday, our overpaid gutless hacks are apparently only allowed one question to the dear leader; Unibond Brown (Why Unibond? -Got no nails) and if really brave might slip in another! It matters not. Whatever question was asked Brown kept to the script, basically, liike Stalin and Hitler, he is in charge and we can all lump it, democracy has been shown the back door and we have a Mugabe style of control.

    I would also seriously question Browns medical and mental state. I along with many others are convinced that Brown, about the time of G20, suffered some form of mental breakdown and there are post-traumatic signs he is not only still under stress but being irrational. In the private sector, it is usually a condition of employment that the candidate must submit to a medical examination otherwise insurance cover may be denied. Clearly the time has come for Brown to agree to a complerte medical from an independednt facility and to have the results acted upon accordingly. It is not only Susan Boyle who might need to use the Priory.

    Finally, that make-up. Brown got away with it on sky news but when I tuned into Channel 4 news later that night the quality of the picture showed up the hatchet make up job , he looked more like the Joker out of batman. If he is going to waar make up at least get a professional into do it and put on some acrylic nails to cover the ones he has bitten down to the knuckle. Or invest in a bottle of Nilbite about £3.

    Why does Caroline Flint have the cheek to accuse Gordon Brown of sexism when she did a photo shoot in the Observer which made her look like a not very high class prostitute? She also comes across as very patronising and arrogant every time she speaks in public. Especially on Question time?’

    Labour=scum says:

    Brown claimed £382.39 for the cost of an electricity bill covering electricity usage over the period July 3rd to September 28 2006, 88 days.

    An average house in UK uses about 3,300 kWh of electricity in a year. In 2006 electricity prices in UK were around 10p per kWh, so £380 equates to around 3,800 kWhs of electricity used: more than the average annual usage, in only 88 days, less than one quarter of a year!

    Bear in mind too, the period claimed for is the summer period with usage being typically less than half the winter period. Presumably too Brown and family did not spend most of their time during these 88 days at this house(parliament not breaking up until end of July). So, on the face of it, would appear that Brown has submitted an expense for electricity usage at least four times greater than the actual electricity usage would have been. To clear this up all that is needed is his actual bill and the electricity supply company’s records for corroboration. If, as is likely, Brown has made a bogus claim, for an amount many times the actual cost incurred, he should be arrested and charged with defrauding the public purse.

        Only reason he agreed – all for a few more millions in the bank – or how did you think he made the money in the first place? Strange that the Conservatives had a schools policy in place 1997, which was ripped up and a £million donator Alan Sugar – soon to become – Sir Alan Sugar – had his company Viglen sell computers to schools wholesale, despite being far from cheapest!

      Isn’t it a no brainer that if Brown were forced out he’d ask for a dissolution and call an election immediately? Surely he’s far too vindictive to let someone else take over, and in any case he could argue (correctly, purely by coincidence) that it would be “the right thing to do”.

    If you are in a Labour constituency where the expenses of the MP are questionable ie fraudulent – make a complaint to the police and they will have to investigate then make sure the press know about it.

    Ditto Tories and Lb dems we need an election and this will only happen if WE take action not just talk.

    If the Police will not investigate – make a complaint to the IPCC.

    These are our public servants – let’s make them serve.

    I believe Brown views the British public as the enemy who need re-educating

    To him his views are honest and true, they are just very different from most normal people, I think he really is suffering from some type of mental illness.

    The fact that he is Prime Minister does not mean he is not some type of sociopath

    He appears to be able to keep his emotions under control at all times in public but is subject to uncontrollable rages at other times

    I never thought I would write this but Prescott, as thick as he is, at least has some basic emotional honesty, I was actually quite impressed when he twatted that protestor

    O/T Sorry but where’s Gordon – I’ve just been watching D-Day Commemoration in Arromanche and Caen – he’s nowhere to be seen.

    I know he was in Bayeux Cathedral early morning being followed around by a funny little man that bears an uncanny resemblance to Hitler – who was he? But in any case now they’ve both disappeared.

    In Caen there was only Obama and Sarkozy with the Vets and they only played the American and French national anthems. NO BRITISH ANTHEM – so much for saying thanks to our Vets for what they did on D-Day!!!

The Americans were responsible for the sector stretching from Arromanches westwards up the Cotenin peninsula and took in Utah & Omaha beaches and St Maire Eglise.

Labour will not say officially how many members it has, only that the number is “steady”. NEC sources say there was a surge in the months after Brown took over in 2007 but that since then numbers have dropped by around 10%, suggesting the figure now stands at about 160,000.

      One of the telling features about charlatans is that they create their own real time mythology and try to pass it off as the judgement of history. Preposterous. Hain is a stupid, pompous, bag of wind and history will have a very different story to tell about this lot, who can’t open their mouths without lying and peddle mediocrity as some kind of elitism (q.v. Jacqui Smith, etc.)

      Look at it this way, when the Nazis were in power they strutted about, arrogant and big-headed, bullying people, creating victims and scapegoats, patting each other on the back and puffing about how wonderful they were and their historical destiny. They made the rules, set the tone, controlled the propaganda. The truth was there all along, but just suppressed and intimidated by a parcel of lies and the complicit, craven sycophancy of the media. Now we know them for the gang of lying, murdering swine they really were.

      History will also not be kind to the political travesty that is New Labour, the national socialist party of Great Britain.

    Toynbee on Sky saying results so appalling that Labour can’t carry o with Brown and in a deep dark black hole and that a new leader would have to call an election but first clean up politics etc. Labour might not win but at least save themselves from losing next 2/3 elections. Results tomorrow night might bring on new wave of panic and give them a dose of reality; if they want to see a change of direction they need a fresh face as leader. GB has very few supporters but they want to keep himas better than awful consequences of changing leader – others say going to be awful anyway so get a glimmer of hope and get new leader. Cabinet and MPs need to go to GB on Monday and tell him to go. Catalyst (local elections) but other, future catalysts will be messier eg Royal Mail.

    It is now your mission, on behalf of all of us, to bring down the Kinnock bitch even before you turn your sights back on Hain.

    Let’s start with looking at why the auditor’s clearance of her accounts, as shown on her website, is more than a year out of date.

    Better still, have a look at D E Morris FCA – who seems to make a bit of a thing of auditing Labour MEPs – to see just how diligent he is as his job.

    This woman has never been elected by the British people, she is the ultimate parasite on the body politic. And before anyone challenges that statement, being elected on a party list system does NOT count as being elected by the people.

      Lord knows who Eleanor Burnham AM is but she thinks its OK for the taxpayer to stand the cost of her self-assessment tax advice:

      £525.00 Accountant fees self assessment tax return paid to C Archer

      John Griffiths AM thinks value for money is much more important, he uses the same D E Morris as our friend Glenys to get his accounts checked. And he pays the same £65 as the Kinnock bint for the privilege. No doubt Mr Morris does more than just provide an unquestioning signature for this fee.

      John Marek AM clearly has less well kept accounts, he claims a massive £1,300 for his accountant – sadly it ‘s a reimbursement to himself so we can’t see which loyal Accountant provides the Rolls-Royce service Marek so clearly needs.

      Karen Sinclair AM is another one who thinks you and me should pay for her self-assessment to be completed: £822.50 paid to MD Coxey & Co Ltd, nice work if you can get it.

    He has just called Omaha Beach – Obama Beach – !!!! I have never been so ashamed by our British representation – but he looks so shabby besides all these other statesmen.!!!!!!

    Ruth Kelly's plaything says:

    Just watched the Brown press conf, all 38 mins of it, at:-

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8086353.stm

    It has left me (a) concerned at the judgement of some of my fellow-posters who see a man in breakdown and (b) rather worried that he might, just, get away with it and turn things round.

    Setting aside my strong anti-NuLab feelings, what I saw was a man who was on edge (who wouldn’t be under these circs?), but fundamentally confident.

    What was REALLY wrong is that he got away with spouting utter rot, as he and his vile gang always do. They think we will swallow it, and the media faithfully report it.

    Two things are wrong here: (1) the political leader of the country ought not to think it’s his job to deliver fantasy tractor statistics, but ought to employ the candour of which he (falsely) boasted and tell us the truth; (2) after five minutes of this trash the journos ought to walk out declaring that they have better things to do. (I look forward to the day when at 8.12 am Humphrys says: ‘Minister, in the last two minutes you have made no attempt to answer the question. You have one more chance or I shall terminate the interview.’)

    Given that none of that will happen in my lifetime, what can we look forward to?

    My nightmare runs like this:-

    - over the next few months Brown manages to create an impression that he is getting to grips with things;

    - the economy starts to turn (or stops getting worse) and it is seen as attributable to Brown;

    - people see through Cameron’s wishy-washiness and decide that perhaps NuLab’s not so bad after all.

    Make no mistake – IT COULD HAPPEN!!!!!

    And what do we do then?

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
