Forgive and Forget

For those once great enemies, the BBC and Alastair Campbell have certainly settled their differences, and what’s more the Beeb seem almost hysterical about the launch of the latest edition of his diaries. When was the last time a book was publicised on every channel and radio station both locally and nationally with the author allowed unfettered readings and plugging?

“My voice is starting to go a bit already, having done breakfast telly and then 19 local and regional radio interviews, all in the interests of publicising a book which, if my twitter friends are anything to go by, is not in all the right places yet and has already sold out on Amazon ….”

It’s ridiculous that he is able to so brazenly use publicly funded outlets for his own commercial and political gain.

    It’s a disgrace. One can only hope that sales are limited to Blair, Brown (in order to chuck it at the walls) and Mrs Campbell.
    And that the rest are duly recycled into fertiliser for the Brazilian rain forests (courtesy Mandelson).

          Anyone else noticed how some of the names in this Cumbrian massacre are kinda spooky…? ie (village of ) Lamplugh, Gary Purdham is similar to Barry Prudham who was another Birdy in the 80’s that no-one mentions now and is still a bit of a mystery

            There was an intruder at my parent’s house in France. My father rang the police;
            Dad,”There is an intruder trying to break into my house.”
            Gendarmerie, “Do you have a gun?”
            Dad, “Yes, several.”
            Gendarmerie, “Shoot him if he comes in.”
            Dad, “Then what?”
            Gendarmerie, “We’ll be along later.”

            The intruder was frightened off by the sound of the bolt action. He went next door where he was immediately shot. The Gendarmerie turned up three hours later and removed the intruder to hospital. No charges were made against the householder.

            If you threaten them with that defence, they miraculously back off, as a successful claim would invalidate the whole licensing system (as it does).

            They’ve got no right to enter your home, anyway, and if you so much as mention that they need a warrant they give up.

      that's not what Dave and his Lib Dem boyfriend think says:

      Mr Cameron stressed that he supported the BBC

      He said: “The BBC is an important national institution. I want to see it prosper and succeed and be a fantastic cultural asset.”

      He added that he was a “supporter of the licence fee”

      Jeremy Hunt Conservative MP, Shadow Culture Secretary

      “I believe that the BBC is a great national institution.”

      “I am proud of the BBC. I think that most British people think that we are very lucky to have a BBC and most people who aren’t British, if they don’t have a BBC, wish they did have one.”

      “I don’t see the BBC as a State broadcaster. “I think people see the BBC as operating at arms length from the government and it’s very important that it should continue to do so and that’s why we’ve said we will protect the BBC charter.”

      Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has defended the BBC, saying it’s “unique in the world and we should be proud of it” and said the trend for politicians to constantly attack it was wrong.

            @ Susie. Thank you for this, and all your posts, which I invariably enjoy. Now I must confess that this is the first time I have heard the SSs, so it has been an education. I could not forget a name such as theirs and thought it apposite to describe the awful AC, I imagine you might agree on this.

            I used to read Sounds but somehow never put together that Giovanni Dadamo was also a band member, or that Arthur Comix’s “isgodaman” was also them. I was very busy at the time and it got to the stage that I could only skim it for stuff, primarily so as not to miss a gig.

            As to the SS’s music itself, it is a bit too avant garde for me. My tastes go back to R&R right through the 60s but when it got to punk, I could manage the Stranglers but not the Sex Pistols, to which end of the spectrum the SSs appear to gravitate. This approach of mine may of course be justifiably dismissed as old fart syndrome …..

His contribution to public life has been wholly negative; he has demeaned the body politic, devalued government communication and debased himself. Public life and British politics will be greatly improved when he finally disappears for ever, leaving only a bad smell and a small quantity of pre-printed toilet paper.

    It’s a banality to say it but if by some circumstance Stalin had power for only three years it is very likely that the death and suffering of countless people would never have happened, let alone the entire shape of history in the East of Europe and even much of the Western world would have been totally different. It didn’t happen of course, I guess the Russians and others who suffered just weren’t lucky. We on the other hand might, in the aftermath of the New Labour experiment and in particular the passing of the great beast Gordon brown, count ourselves lucky. I can’t help thinking that although this country has been brought to its knees socially, politically and financially by the New labour party and others working for them, we have narrowly avoided something even worse something like the horrors of life under Stalin. Because had the scottish monster had the guts to opt for an election in his first year as the usurper PM, which he could possibly have won, we would not only now be in the dire state we are in but having been given a legitimate mandate to govern who knows what mad laws and enactments the evil maniac might have imposed on us. Yet still the elements of this oppressive regime are still in place, most notably the propaganda are of New Labour: the BBC. If just one instance of proof were needed as to their involvement with the Labour party, I would point to alistair campbell, and say how is it that the BBC allow the propagandist of this party, who hasn’t even a mandate from the electorate, to continually voice his opinions, opinions that with the (endorsement) and power of the media have the potential of shaping peoples thoughts and actions. If this disreputable and discredited individual were to belong to any other organisations other than the labour party he would probably not even be allowed in the building.

      Its upto Dave and Nick now to make damn sure,during their time in office,they lay down foundations that will protect our freedoms from a future NuLab gov or even better still make NuLab obsolete forever and our future governments either Tory or Lib Dem.That would suit me fine.

    Alastair Campbell is arguably the foremost political operator of our time. Along with Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and Peter Mandelson, he started the New Labour project that has changed the face of this country forever and helped to create a future fair for all.

    If you don’t believe me, why not ask the 500,000 children lifted out of poverty under New Labour. Or the same-sex couples who are now able to enter civil partnerships and adopt children. Or the working mums who have SureStart. Or the countless ordinary hard-working families who have benefited from the minimum wage, maternity pay, paternity leave, Child Tax credits.

    Or why not ask the cancer patients whose lives were saved by the Cancer Guarantee the Tories are scrapping.

    Campbell was Blair’s most trusted advisor, and a formidable political operator.

    I bet none of you who mock him on Guido’s site would dare to take him on in a live debate or a fist fight. He would pummel you into the ground and leave you whimpering and humiliated.

      I suspect you’ve never actually met your hero, though.

      I can remember being at the bar in a pub off Oxford St with a colleague a few years ago, and, upon turning around to have a look at the arsehole I had so far only heard behind me, I rapidly deduced that Campbell, as much in real life as in celebrity, was a wanker beyond redemption.

      Labour DID NOT lift children out of poverty.

      UNICEF voted the UK the worst developed country in the world in which to raise children in 2007 and the Child Poverty Action Group named Great Britain similarly one of the worst in Europe in 2009. The number of people officially in poverty in this country continues to rise.

      SureStart simply encourages irresponsible people to breed poverty-stricken offspring (with, presumably, the bizarre “upside” that some of them will become targets for gay adopters).

      Labour’s (and, by association, Campbell’s) record on child poverty is scandalous.

      Bad Al was found tongue-tied on Five Live this afternoon. What could have been the question that finally reduced him to silence, you might wonder.

      With whose name did the majority of our text correspondents associate you this afternoon?.

      The answer on his quivering lips, as in the minds of millions of listeners was, of course, Dr David Kelly.

      ‘Or why not ask the cancer patients whose lives were saved by the Cancer Guarantee ‘

      Getting seen rapidly is important to a very worried patient but would you care to set out your evidence for any lives having been saved by arbitrary time targets? The cancer guarantee is a typical piece of populism, dreamed up by people who have no understanding of the range, complexity and prognoses of different types of ‘cancer’ and the fact that almost any symptom you might present to you doctor could have some type of cancer as one of the differential diagnoses.

      The alternative explanation is that Brown and his acolytes knew perfectly well that their ‘cancer guarantee’ would be unachievable, just as so many of their targets have been over the past 13 years, but also knew that they would never be called to account over this as they wouldn’t be in power. The more ridiculous promises they made, the more they could accuse the Tories of letting people down if they didn’t match them. However, that would be cynical wouldn’t it?

    Kevin Maguire has launched a stinging attack on the ConDem government.

    Pinocchio PM David Cameron in a political stitch-up

    David Cameron’s Eton Coup in Austerity Britain would shame a banana republic.

    The Tory toff’s shabby plot to gerrymander democracy is the dirtiest ConDem
    politics.

    When Cameron talks of cutting MPs, he means axing Labour MPs.

    The House of Commons is to be rigged so he can’t easily be voted out of power. Dozens of Tory cronies will stuff a House of Lords he pretends to want elected.

    Labour’s financial link with the trade unions is to be severed so the opposition’s bankrupted.

    And he’ll stab in the back Lib Dem idiot allies by fighting electoral reform.

    The new politics preached by Cameron is the politics of the elected dictator.

    His nose should be longer than Pinocchio’s after claiming “opportunism doesn’t work”. Because opportunism’s worked for the Cons and the Dems.

    The coalition of the unprincipled’s sleazy deal was dressed up as a Queen’s Speech.

    But behind the official-speak the Cameron script stinks of hypocrisy. It’s crumbs from a rich man’s table when voters may sack an MP by a simple majority. And Cameron squats in No 10, a 55% padlock on the gates to Downing Street.

    The lost jobs, abandoned student places and abolished kids’ nest eggs will be missed in the £6bn ConDem downpayment. The pain will become unbearable after June’s Budget and autumn spending cuts raise the bill.

    I accuse Cameron of many things but he’s not daft. He knows exactly what he’s doing.

    The Buller Boy knows there’s an electoral tsunami coming his way.

    He’d be swamped unless he rigs the constitution.

    Labour heroes refused to back Blair and Brown’s draconian plans to lock up terror suspects without charge for 90 then 42 days. The same MPs must make common cause with Tories who refuse to play Cameron’s nasty political game.

    And appeal to the hearts of Lib Dems deeply unhappy they’re expected to behave illiberally.

    The ConDem coalition isn’t going to disintegrate this year but it’s unstable.

    Cameron’s fighting on two fronts: economic and political.

    He’s on dodgy ground with both.

    So please, spare us the high-minded Tory lectures.

          So what did cause his death? And who was responsible for it?!

          That question will always remain if there is not a Coroner’s Inquest and suspicion will continue to be centred on those in government at the time of his death unless an Inquest rules differently.

        Correct. People in the village who knew the Kellys are convinced he was murdered.
        A ‘diplomat’ I met socially [for diplomat read spook] confirmed he was ‘without a doubt’ murdered – his words. All the medical and other circumstantial evidence points in that direction

        High time for this disgraceful cover-up to be exposed and the culprits brought to justice

I paid him shit but gave him a no limit booze allowance. I feel a little guilty that he abused himself and became an alcoholic before graduatiing to a self loathing manic depressive with strains of meglomania.

    I should like to pay tribute to Jeff Tinnion. Former chairman of Workington and District Taxi Association who died in 2006. I knew him from his time in Liverpool.

    He was “was a founder member of LAM (Liverpool against Militant) and was a fierce and unrelenting critic of everything that [Derek] Hatton stood for and took him on head to head during debates that became part of the national news agenda.”

    He “was a personal friend of legendary manager Bill Shankly” and used to tell me many tales of Bill’s life and time.

    “His reputation as a negotiator was built not on aggression but on the quality of his arguments.” He did much work for charity.

    He must have known Derrick Bird and would have been horrified about yesterday’s happenings.

    For anyone who is interested, his obituary is here (quoted from above, but I can vouch for much of it myself):

    “It’s ridiculous that he is able to so brazenly use publicly funded outlets for his own commercial and political gain.”
    It’s not so ridiculous. This is a common thing in television. Someone has a new product, TV station believes people would watch or listen if said person comes on, but for this to work, part of the said persons appearance(if not all of their appearance) will be dedicated to mentioning their said product. It happens ALL the time. You just need to turn on any of the talk shows, or morning TV shows to see Peter Andre and Katie Price flogging their wares. Although Alistair Campbell is equally as horrible a person, I don’t think he really deserves to be flagged out for this. If anything, it should be the practice of “plugging” in the first place. But without plugging we would never have had great TV as this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWEdi4uf7Eo

The comedy isn’t funny, the drama shows are pathetic, factual shows are shallow, sports go on and on for hours and if its not a five-minute ad break it’s a load of bloody trailers and idents.

        Great plot for a movie thriller. But most of our directors are too left wing do anything that would harm the Labour Party except perhaps Guy Ritchie. Just need a catchy title,

      Bollocks.

      Israel is like a middle-aged child abuser claiming that their shitty childhood somehow explains their disgusting behaviour as an adult.

      If Israel wants to be taken seriously as a civilised nation, it’s time they grew up and behaved like the rest of us – otherwise, they should be treated as on Rule 43 and isolated until they are fit to rejoin the general population.

      Sanctions, isolation and financial starvation are the only answer to this shittly little rogue state – they either play by the same rules as the rest of us, or we ask them to leave the game.

      McKenzie’s usually a man whose opinions I have a lot of time for, but on Israel he is wrong, wrong, wrong.

        The dollar millionaires comprising the Hamas elite do not live in the camps but live in luxury villas up on the hill where they receive their orders from Iran. It seems you are more convinced by Palestinian propoganda than Israeli. Everyone takes sides even if they’ve never been there.

          True – I’ve never been to Israel. I’ve been to Jordan, though, and know that a well behaved Israel would be welcomed as a good neighbour, and a valued trading partner. The Jordanians don’t much care for the Palestinian refugees – their victim mentality and sense of entitlement does not fit well with the character of the Jordanians, and the existence of their dispossessed cousins is almost a cause for shame.

          My sympathies are not with the Palestinians because I fall for Hamas propaganda – they are just not with the Israelis, because I have looked at the history and believe that the very essence of the Israeli state is psycopathic, founded on terrorism and an exclusive religious ideology.

          The existence of such a state in the area where a large amount of the world’s oil and gas is located is, in my opinion, a bad thing.

        Useful idiot collaborators do more damage to the fight against islamist terror than any fake charity. The west suffered from a wave of handwringing appeasers in the 30s and most of them were leftists and that taught Israel a lesson that cost them six million dead.
        Hamas wnats to exterminate the Jews and its ueseful idiot collaborators in the west are helping, nothing like the mental illness of the terrorist enablers is there?

    Campbell is the darling of the BBC for now. The BBC needs to accept that it is institutionally and politically biased in favour of Labour. A fumigation of the labrats is inevitable within the institution. Instead of going against the grain of this inevitability, the BBC should adapt and adjust itself to a new political era and evolve naturally.
