CCHQ Try to Put the Frighteners on Leakers

CCHQ get immensely annoyed when stories leaked from Millbank appear on this blog. Before Christmas George Osborne told a staff briefing that they may enjoy “ten minutes of fame” but leaks (and he named Guido in particular) could blow the whole election campaign.  Guido took that as a compliment.

The minor revelation on this blog that ballot papers will not have “David Cameron’s Conservatives” on them, a much mooted and trialled idea, has resulted in chief whip Patrick McLoughlin wading in.  At the Ashcroft / Cameron Tory PPC get-together this weekend the Chief Whip took the stage. He displayed the story on an overhead projector during a talk about loyalty. They’ll have to try harder than that to silence Guido, several PPCs got in touch to laugh about it…

Guido always protects his sources. The proof: when Downing Street threatened a security investigation, they got nothing.  Injunctions get filed in the bin, Court Orders get flouted, mole hunts end up in a hole.  To quote Rick Astley, Guido is never gonna give you up.

You make this blog happen. Sources are always anonymous (unless you want credit). If you know “the line” is a lie, ask yourself why you got into politics; was it to cover up the truth, or tell it? You may even get a conspiracy member T-shirt for your troubles…


Guido relies on you for information.

            Well telling the whole nation that we cannot go on like this with a BIG FUCK OFF IMAGE of Cameron’s airbrushed mugshot next to the tagline is completely amateurish fuckmuppetry of the highest order. The ONLY possible outcome from that poster was a reduction in the saleability of Cameron and the tories. It was OBVIOUS!

            I cannot believe that the Ad agency involved could have agreed to that poster going up unless they hate the tories too.

            I mean it is advertising 101 stuff. The basics. Do NOT associate your image with a negative message.

            Even if people liked Cameron to begin with, repeatedly seeing his face alongside the message “We cannot go on like this” will, slowly sink into the sub-conscious and turn millions of people off Cameron. It is how the human mind works. It is not magic, or a trick. It is just how we are wired.

            The tories are trying to LOSE the election. They are scared shitless of coming in after this labour created fucktastrophe.

            Or is someone claiming that they are actually trying to win? Because IF they are, they could not be doing a more fucked up, amateurish and stupid job of it.

            If this is how they try to run a winning election campaign, they should NEVER be allowed anywhere near running the country.

            We need to get rid of labour AND the tories!

            We have no option but to choose from what’s available, short of starting our own political party, which quite a few have been doing recently. (I was going to start the Apathy Party, but frankly I couldn’t be bothered.)

            So –

            Vote Labour = more debt, leading to collapsed economy.
            Vote Tory = we’re not really sure.
            Vote Lib Dem = even more lefty codswallop.
            Vote UKIP = out of EU (fair enough), then what?
            Vote Green = even more lefty codswallop.
            Vote Independent = fair enough, but no chance of exerting authority.

            Never make a decision until until you have to. The parties have several weeks to get a convincing manifesto out and convince the voters. So far, they aren’t making a very good job of it. Let’s hope that changes, or we do have a quandary.

          • The Conservatives ought to get over the notion that Libertarian writers such as Guido are “automatically on-message”.

            Should the Tories win – and it is by no means certain – since the GramscoFabiaNazis know how to rig elections for that is their job, libertarians will oppose fascist Tory policies, repression of liberty, and cock-ups by departments, just as forcefully as they do to the impossibly wicked and deliberately evil Labour fascists.

            There are no conditions under which a Cameron government will be able to behave sufficiently differently from a Labour one, as regards increasing individual liberty, lowering taxation to a level we might all reasonably pay, and the execution of monetarist/free market policies.

            To say nothing of the EU, Lisbon ID cards, DNA databases, and statofascist scams like those.

      So true, except Cameron is making a poorer fist of it than Osborne.

      The problem with Cameron is not he’s stupid – he clearly isn’t . Rather, he just doesn’t get it. Dave needs to wake up and start living in the real world. He has surrounded himself with vacuous PR men and professional policy wonk types at CCHQ many of whom have never done a proper job in their life. The ‘David Cameron’s conservatives’ poster fiasco is perhaps the low point in this series of incompetences.

      Most of us hate Labour and Brown with a passion that Cameron simply cannot imagine, and I speak as one who has never been a member of any political party. Labour has wrecked the country and it’s finances and we demand vengeance – red meat policies not watered down focus group shit. We don’t want green climate change bollocks or policy shifts designed to assuage ‘progressive’ metropolitan trendies.

      Put simply. we’ve had enough of Brown and Labour’s overblown, authoritarian, incompetent and corrupt quangocracy and demand that the Tories make clear that they will taken an axe to it without mercy – cut, cut, and cut again. Terminate with extreme prejudice, no sacred cows. We certainly don’t want simply to swap Labour jobsworths and PR politicos for Tory ones.

      Every time Cameron misses an open goal at question time, or backtracks on the severity of the cuts that are needed we groan in despair, as this is akin to giving succour to the Nulab enemy. You don’t take a knife to a gunfight and the Labour establishment will continue to lie, cheat and fight dirty as they have little else to offer. Cameron needs to up his game. The Tories need to remove the fat trougher Pickles from public view (in any event keep him off the telly). Dump the PR bullshitters and get stuck in.

    Hopefully a greedy thieving trougher will be exposed each week until Mays Doomsday, keeping the public well aware of exactly the kind of scum that is asking for their vote.

        Yeah that made me laugh … I thought things were about to get more exciting than a trip to Tesco with Richard Madeley. Nice to see such a heavyweight political figure available to replace toenails, and especially nice to see him without his granny for once.

    BREAKING NEWS!

    Tony Blair gets Best Actor nom. for his part in the gripping sleazy thriller “The Chilcot Inquiry”. “The role was considered to be unplayable, but he made it work.” said De Niro admiringly. Read about the scripts Hollywood agents are rushing to put before the British actor. http://cyberboris.wordpress.com/2010/02/02/oscar-nominations/

    Why can’t Dave ask ” Do you still think it was the right thing to do to sell off UK’s gold stocks at the bottom of the market?”
    And have today’s valuation ready for the follow up.

    All the plebs are selling off their gold now and this would resonate with them

    How is it that David Cameron is so effectively fighting on Labour’s own terms. Rather than continuously pointing out all the governments faults and constantly drilling into the electorate how bad this lot really are, he simply gets caught trying to make guarantees and pledges he later reverses and promises he can’t fund. He needs to change the narrative and start to fight to his strengths. 13 years of a Labour government and he can’t find any point of weakness in their armour? Stop trying to be all things to all people and start hitting those populist Tory messages.

    Promise a referendum on Lisbon, so what if he can’t actually drag us out. If the public decided that’s the policy they want then let them have it. At least he has the flipping mandate either way!

    Save our armed forces. Fight back against the complete lie that “we HAVE to work with our EU friends if we want to provide an effective force!

    Be explicit about health. Yes there will be cuts but not ONE front line role will go.

    Education is a shambles. Re-introduce comprehensive streaming and vocational schools. It’s not about Elitism it’s about helping the kids do what they are good at.

    Plus anything else that will win votes. Oh and whilst we’re at it create a rapid rebuttal unit aka Labour 1997. That stuff works.

    Finally attack, attack, attack.! No more Mister Nice Green Tory, take off the gloves and start giving the clunking fist a thump.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”
