Crowd Sourced Gossip : We Are All Watching Them Now

Guido is very much enjoying the growth of @eyespymp – in just a couple of days it has garnered nearly 1500 followers and is starting to bear more fruit than even its predecessor. Guido hears that some MPs are up in arms about invasion of their privacy and that hacks are chortling away. Though people are often too quick to dismiss her, Nadine was the first to clock that the Lobby might not be laughing for long: “The hacks are going to realise that @eyespymp may yet bite them on the bum!And indeed the penny is starting to drop.

Yvettte Cooper was outed earlier lunching with Polly Toynbee in the Atrium restaurant on Millbank. Whatever tit-bit she was trying to plant in tomorrow’s Guardian has had its source well and truly blown. Former hack-pack totty turned yummy-mummy Gaby Hinsliff* has had a moment of enlightenment:wow. @eyespymp is going to make it hard for lobby journalists to protect sources. start looking for more obscure lunch venues.” Lazy hacks might have to actually trundle even further than Shepherd’s at this rate.

*Is it just Guido that thinks Gaby might be missing the cut and thrust of Westminster life? She is tweeting away all day and he has seen her byline more times since she went to live a life of domestic rural bliss than when she was working for the Observer. Poor Mr Hinsliff must be close to a “it’s Twitter or me” moment.

            Poly Toynbee’s entire modus operandi is being briefed up to the eyeballs over lunch, and dropping a couple of selective, spoon-fed factoids into the next day’s op-ed

            it was never very difficult to figure out who’d been giving her one

            – – – – – –

            There’s a one-eyed yellow Scotsman of a dour and sullen hue
            There’s a stench of pious bullshit all around
            There’s a broken-heated woman dreams of socialism true
            And the yellow Scot forever lets her down

            He was known as Red McBroon, and he made the Party swoon
            Though his cowardice had long begun to smell
            But for all he was a wanker he was feted by the bankers
            And Polly Toynbee smiled on him as well

            He’d been stringing her along with his socialism strong
            She’d swallowed all he put into her head
            When she judged Blair’s time was short, she said Broon had her support
            Provided he would prove himself True Red

            He wrote to ask what promise she would like from Red McBroon
            They met for lunch as many times before
            And fervently she told him then that nothing else would do
            But his vote against Blair’s mad Iraqi war

            On the night of the debate, Red McBroon was in a state,
            His followers could bring mad Tony down
            But he’d never in his life had the balls to wield the knife
            For he knew the wielder never wears the crown

            When it came to the division, courage gave way to ambition
            And his scruples failed as surely as his balls
            When she heard them read the vote, fury welled up in her throat
            And ‘betrayal!’ was her cry around the halls

            Now Hell it hath no fury like a jilted Polly Toynbee
            First Blair and now McBroon had sold his soul
            As she stomped off in the night, for her op-ed piece to write
            She vowed vengeance on the yellow Scots arsehole

            There’s a one-eyed yellow Scotsman of a dour and sullen hue
            There’s a stench of pious bullshit all around
            There’s a broken-heated woman dreams of socialism true

            These fuckers rolled over and allowed Blair and the rest of those evil cock sucking, rimming, knob-jockey Neanderthals in the commons to ride roughshod over democracy, decency, justice and the rule of law to murder hundreds of thousands of men, women and children overseas and to set in motion the blatant theft of over a trillion pounds from our pockets to go to the banking wanking bastards in the city.

            These mainstream media bastards are as guilty as Blair is, for they knew the truth and they wilfully peddle more and more lies all the fucking time to prop-up the entire, false edifice of the establishment.

            Now all we need is for around 20 million or so more of us suckers to finally get the perfectly horrendous picture, and we might start to kick some serious arse.

            However may I very strongly suggest that we do whatever we MUST do as peacefully, and lawfully as humanly possible?

            Remember the parking, police services and armed forces are also one of us, although when they are pointing a riffle at our wives and loved ones heads, while checking our ID cards, this may seem almost impossible to achieve.

            Of course the one thing to very much remember are the establishment owned scumbags we all trusted, who helped so very much to get us into this hopelessly debt enslaved mess, which is the ENTIRE main stream media in general, and the BBC very very much in particular.

            Polly Toynbee at this point should be given a special mention, as well as Rupert Murdoch, Nick Robinson and Andrew Marr.

            One other thing to remember, a fully provoked, organized by them, and therefore very much predicted TAX strike is what the ID card is really all about, which will without doubt rapidly morph into an ID chip.

            What they really want is your cash, and more specifically the product of your own hard work and productivity. If you don’t allow them to take/ thieve it, they will simple take you permanently out.

    The two other alternatives which might be more palatable to our politicians are taxing the life out of those that can afford private education (almost impossible), or paying teachers in state education more than those employed privately to drain public schools of their best resource. We do this in many other public sectors to attract the best talent, so why not in education?’

      THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren’t only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.

      Some things about living still weren’t quite right, though. April for instance, still drove people crazy by not being springtime. And it was in that clammy month that the H-G men took George and Hazel Bergeron’s fourteen-year-old son, Harrison, away.

      It was tragic, all right, but George and Hazel couldn’t think about it very hard. Hazel had a perfectly average intelligence, which meant she couldn’t think about anything except in short bursts. And George, while his intelligence was way above normal, had a little mental handicap radio in his ear. He was required by law to wear it at all times. It was tuned to a government transmitter. Every twenty seconds or so, the transmitter would send out some sharp noise to keep people like George from taking unfair advantage of their brains.

    He was previously protected by a court order which banned the publication of his identity.

    Heaton was jailed indefinitely at Liverpool Crown Court and ordered to serve a minimum of five years.

    On Monday, the court heard how Heaton first struck in parkland near his home in St Helens, Merseyside, in April 2009.

    Debbie Gould, prosecuting, said: “He began to follow his victim, who was three weeks short of her 11th birthday, and stare at her.

    He grabbed hold of her and despite her resistance pushed her into some bushes.

    The sick monster who is in court today took my little girl’s childhood away from her
    Victim’s mother

    “She was trying to scream for help but he said to her, ‘If you shout one more time, I’ll break your neck’.”

    So this scum – a product of Brown and Blair – is sentenced to just 5 years.

    Oh – by the way,at the time of this crime,he was on bail for the rape of a 10 yr old girl.

    No wonder Gordon Brown doesn’t sleep at night.

      DO WE BELIEVE NOW THAT SOCIETY IS FUCKING BROKEN??

      He was sentenced “indefinitely” with a 5 year minimum, which is actually harsher than a 10 year sentence. He has to prove he is suitable for release (which ain’t happening) after a minimum of 5 years – whereas with a 10 year sentence he would be automatically released after 5 years.

      The new indeterminate setences are actually a step forward, but the way they are announced by judges and reported by the press make them seem relatively lenient.

    Beware the ides of March says:

    It is now clear that a March Election may well be on the cards. Labour have produced results which can be spun to show the economy is recovering ( yes I know its nonsense but thats not the point), already their strategy is to harp on about how the recovery must not be damaged by the evil tories. That is the narrative they have embarked upon.

    It is way to risky for them to wait until the next set of figures later in the year which may not be so easily spun.

    Their “best chance” is to go as soon as possible.

    I know that Brown would dither but I belive Mandleson will have the upper hand in deciding this.

    A couple of other points to ponder.

    What was the unexpected gathering of the cabinet about the other day? Could it be to decide this matter ?

    Bob Ainsworths so called Slip of the Tounge was nothing of the sort. His announcement was very deliberate, it was a poor attempt to wrongfoot the opposition.

    An early election will also mean Chilcott is put on ice. Handy for Gordon.

    March it is then.

Even a hick from the sticks such as myself can be aware of developing news in and around parliament within hours, sometimes minutes, without waiting for tomorrow’s papers, or even the 10 O’Clock News.

    Technology changes things. Communication technology is changing fast – bewilderingly fast for someone like me schooled before personal computers where common, and when phones needed wires. Journalism and politics will have to adapt to the new technologies and the things it makes possible, whether they like it or not. If it makes it easier to hold politicians instantly to account, it might be a good thing – if it makes it harder for them to conceal dodgy dealings, we’ll all be better for it.

          Someone certainly killed him, but it was not Blair, Brown, Campbell or any one else you could name, or ever will be able to name. Very likely that none of these people gave permission for such a deed, or indeed knew anything about it. These sort of things just are not done that sort of way. I doubt very much indeed that any one you could name had the slightest idea this was going to happen. Chances are they TB and all, shit their pants when hearing about said event, almost as much as Kelly clearly was doing a few days before he met his assassins and then maker.

          Perhaps you have not been reading enough James Bond books. It is all there in black and white?

It may not have even been emeyesix at all. It could have been The kaygeebee, mossarrrd, ceeeyiah, because they all ultimately work for the same people, and have a well established habit of doing each others most dirtiest of work.

    Naturally this goes against the subject of science and is particulary upsetting as it was such a big and important subject , there are other examples of science political conspiracy to make markets , but this particular one is due to scale is beyond what you might call “a mistake” .

    While for now driving the jag can revert to fun again , there are still a few problems . new oil reserves enable the internal combustion engine to have an extended ecnomic life , there is still the problem of where other stuff goes and the importance of ensuring ecosystems work and perhaps letting nature do its own thing free from mans commercial instincts and pollution .

    So even if CO2 scare theory has been shot down , it doesnt make the challenges of feeding , clothing and housing 6bn people much less of a problem with unwelcome eco effects , which the socialist greens see as being a future . CW thinks not so , it is perfectly possible for capitalist market models to react both quicker and with more effect , yes it does mean preserving and perhaps re growing some important eco systems such as forests . It also means accepting that things such as clean air water and land , are the ultimate provider economies even if not defined in monetary terms . going back to the real life ecnomic story of how the dodo died and repeating it ,is not on . There are still limits , natural laws even which need to valued and respected .

    There is no doubt relief short to medium term about energy , but it must not excuse the idea that eco damage is somthing that doesnt matter .

    The IPCC handouts and money waste is very unfortunate , as if it had approached the eco problems , many countries would be starting to impliment the right sort of long term perspective , economic models , instead of the socialist fraud ones .

    At the moment Brown holds the cards regarding election timing. Now on balance he will dither and dither and dither and the election will be in June.

    But he risks the Q1 2010 figures showing we’re back in recession.

    Thing is – Cameron has oodles of cash for his election campaign and Brown’s party, like his government, is bank*rupt. So Brown will be going for a short, sharp election when he gets to book all the advertising hoardings ‘cos he knows what the date will be. Except he won’t. It will be on June 3rd. But Cameron can’t be sure of that.

    With me so far?

    What Cameron needs to do is call a Tory party conference for (say) the week before April 28th – the day when Brown’s economy officially tips back into the shitter.. Right now. A pre-election Tory Conference. Masses of media exposure. Brown and his jackasses wiped off the radar. Cameron buys himself a week of TV coverage unopposed.

    The beauty is that he doesn’t have to actually organise a conference. He can just let it be known that he’s thinking of doing such a thing.

    Now suddenly Brown is worried that Cameron will be able to get a bundle of his spare cash out there in an attention-grabbing way any time he chooses. Suddenly Brown is trying to second-guess the Tories rather than the other way around.

    It’ll eat him alive.

    Genius.

    I commend it to the House.

      jgm, unfortunately Cameron won’t be allowed a week of uninterrupted TV coverage, due to rules on impartiality from the day the election is called. The Tories would be caling Brown’s bluff big time if they scheduled something for the end of April on the assumtion that he would bottle it.

      I think the smart money now has to be on March 25th for the election, or possibly April 8th – will avoid having to present a Budget, the surely negative Q1 growth figures and seasonal unemployment as the sales finish and the retailers dump the thousands of Christmas temps back on the street

      But this is dithering Brown we are talking about, maybe Parliament will just ‘expire’ on May 10 for an election on Friday June 4th, the last possible moment…

        I know they won’t be allowed uninterrupted coverage once the election is called. That’s why Cameron should organise a weeks free coverage before the election is called. Or precipitate an election as Brown tries to out-manouvre him.

        But that’s my whole point. At the moment Brown holds all the cards on election timing. But Cameron can actually force his hand. He just has to float the idea of a pre-election party conference and Brown will be more or less forced to call an election just to wipe a weeks uninterrupted positive coverage off our screens.

            I know it’s Brown. That’s the beauty of my plan. The election will be on the last day possible. Even Brown doesn’t know it yet because he still believes – in his fucked up head – that he’s a decisive leader of men – that he holds the date of the election in the palm of his hand – a trivial decision to be taken when the time is ‘right’. Except we all know, that for him the time will never be ‘right’. The time was right in October 2007. Best chance he was ever going to get. And a single speech by Cameron had him bottling it.

            So Dave could quite confidently book (say) the O2 Arena for a week in April. Full week of rah-rah-rah for the troops with 24/7 coverage. Bright lights, bright colours, photogenic accolytes in the front row. All this followed by the news that – oh, fuck me – we’re still in recession and then the following week Brown has to call an election. Cameron has a two week free run of good news from the Tories and shit news from (Labours) economy.

            I tell you – it’s a fucking brilliant idea. Even if I do say so myself. Which I do.
