Flashback: Hague’s Gay Special Adviser

This is not the first time that William Hague’s choice of Special Adviser has raised questions. Back in December 1995, when Hague was a Minister in the Welsh Office, eyebrows were raised about the appointment of another young Special Adviser with no experience of policy in relation to Wales. Although in the case of Barnaby Towns he at least had some policy development expertise having worked in a Westminster think-tank.

Even so, the appointment of a young, openly gay, relatively unknown figure led to pointed questions being asked by the opposition in the House:

Ministerial Adviser
Mr. Morgan: To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what were the requirements for candidates for the recent appointment for a political adviser to the Secretary of State; what factors determined whether this post was advertised; and if he will list the previous experience, the current pay and length of contract of the successful candidate.

Mr. Hague: With the approval of the Prime Minister and after interviewing a number of candidates I appointed Mr. Barnaby Towns personally as my special adviser. His salary has been negotiated individually and in relation to previous earnings and is confidential. It is on a salary spine of 34 points ranging from £19,503 to £67,609; appointments are non-pensionable and the salary reflects this.

The appointments of special advisers terminate in the circumstances set out in the model appointment letter for special advisers. A copy is in the Library of the House.

Barnaby Towns had certain similarities to Christopher Myers, though in many ways Towns was better qualified for a SpAd’s job than 25 year old Myers. Myers has a second class History degree from Durham University, the Foreign Office press release announcing his appointment describes him as “a lawyer”. If you imagine this might somehow qualify him to assist with treaty negotiations or in matters of international law sadly this is not so. He is not a qualified solicitor nor does he have any experience having only just completed a law course.

Considering that the prestige of the Foreign Office attracts the cream of Britain’s graduates his appointment does seem a strange choice given that Hague could have chosen a foreign policy specialist from CCHQ or the staff of a think-tank. To instead hire an inexperienced, poorly qualified young man over and above more qualified candidates does raise the question: what special talent, unseen by the rest of us, does Mr Myers possess?

The existence of the government car pool rather makes Mr Myer’s experience as Hague’s driver during the election campaign redundant…

            Dear ‘I am Sick’

            Do you agree with us then that the war was a put-up, make-the-Blairs-rich job from the outset?

            We wrote to the press endlessly in 2003 as inside info from the USA told us to watch the world oil price zoom and with it the value of the Bush and Saudi Royal families’ investments. We’ve never seen that quantified but some of the quadrupled price went straight into the Blair’s overseas accounts, some under the guise of Cherie’s lecture fees we were told.
            No wonder Blair has avoided any public link with Bush like the plague until all the money was paid over.
            As for the stuff in today’s Telegraph Bush plainly had the leverage to keep Blair in situ until he’d reaped a second bonus from the pretence of bombing Iraq, thus driving up oil prices all over again.

          Blair's war says:

          He should be investigated and prosecuted. However, the UK could not afford a declaration of an illegal war as it would cost the country too much. Don’t forget Bad Al, Straw and those in the cabinet who turned a blind eye to what was going on. They were all protecting their self serving interests all of them, not acting in the national interest. Time to clean up politics I think. We need a good clear out, scrap Lords (who were nominated by lying scum) and pay MPs for what they actually do. They could vote from their constituency offices rather than profit from second homes- why should they have a house paid for by taxpayers? Give them halls of residence if they need accommodation in London. Dave has still done sweet FA about cleaning up politics, while he is sucking up to Obama.

          Best years of my life. There was a Temazipan phase for a month or two and met 3 natives in club Room, 2 of whom were using their buddy as a battering ram (head first) to open the bog door as their chum had the charlie inside. The lad in the swing was laughing his tits off, too. They all came back to our after party and were incredibly well behaved.

          Never got robbed, hit, mugged, arrested, ripped off (much) and have made life-long friends. Try telling that to some silver spoon gimp as though it was just normal behaviour. Ain’t gonna happen.

          There’s loads of shit you just can’t teach and for everything else, there’s either google or ask some one who gives a shit. I’ve just done nearly 2 years for the Tories and it took me about a year to work out to never ask any officer anything, at all, ever.

          There’s absolutely no shame in admitting ignorance – it’s who you admit it to that problems occur. If this lad has any wits about him and Billy gives him clear management, then he’ll probably be better than some arrogant muppet who may have shed loads of qualifications but knows jack shit about how officers and politicians talk to each other. Never let them know what you’re thinking, as Vito said to Santiano.

      Woman on a Raft says:

      Which is all very well but I still can’t see why we need to pay for anybody of any preference to have a special advisor. The ministers are paid money supposedly for their intellects and are supplied with civil servants who are theoretically independent and therefore should be reliable advisors, not dependent on a personal relationship with the minister.

      All SpAds are dead weight and not a public penny should be spent on them. If a minister is too fick to do their job, they should be replaced immediately.

    Moderniser Watch says:

    It’s not really the gay mafia bit that’s interesting, just some other wheels.

    Barney Towns is now working for Frank Luntz

    This was the pollster who first told the world (through Newsnight focus groups) that David Cameron could reach parts of the electorate that David Davis could not, although its quite clear that Davis would have certainly bettered the pathetic 3% uplift that Cameron managed. He tried to do the same with Portillo in the mid 1990s, with somewhat less success.

    Robbie Gibbs is likely to have been the producer who introduced Luntz to Newsnight, although I think he was probably Maude’s chief of staff during the Cameron love in.

    Another connection that Barney Towns has with the modernisers is that he worked on the unsuccessful Norris mayoral campaign in 2000. Wasn’t a certain Mark McGregor around there all the time?

    Its the ex-FCS modernisers that you should watch. And never trust a Luntz focus group.

    I don’t actually quite understand the excitement here. There seems to a persistent undercurrent of suggestion that some senior members of the Coalition may be gay. Why is that a problem?

    Let’s consider Peter Mandelson. A man who was twice forced to resign on account of his personal corruption. Who pretended to be normal until outed. Who lives in ‘rue des Deux Matelots’ in Brussels on the public purse with a variety of catamites. Who was photographed last New Year (or was it the year before) in Morocco – a country where homosexuality is illegal – with a clearly underaged boy who he then took back to his Hotel.

    All this was ignored by the press, who treated the ludicrous, camp, mincing and incompetent Mandy as if he was a successor to Lord Palmerston.

    As far as I am concerned what someone does with their willy and their bottom, or with other people’s, is their own affair provided there is consent.

    I am interested in having good Governance of our benighted Kingdom after thirteen years of catastrophic mismanagement. If anyone can deliver that I am not remotely interested in their personal lives ONE LITTLE BIT.

      It’s fairly common for secretaries to gain employment for no other reason than they have big tits. Anyone can learn to type, right? That’s OK when it’s your own business and your money. It is not OK when the taxpayer is paying. If you need to pay for sex (gay or hetero or whatever) then do so out of your own pocket.

    I am a huge Guido fan – a three times daily reader – but I honestly do find this rather distasteful.

    The inference is that [a] William Hague is gay and [b] he’s appointed the new SpAd for reasons other than his proficiency as a SpAd.

    [a] who the hell cares, in 2010?

    [b] if you’ve ever been in business you’ll know that trustworthiness, diligence, commitment, enterprise and dedication, along with (yes, that’s right) personal are all qualities that make you right for a particular job, regardless of qualifications. Hague’s got a right to decide using these criteria as well as qualifications.

    I really do think this is all a bit low for Guido, who usually manages to get the tone just right. When it gets into prurience such as this, he gives his many haters sticks with which to beat him; they’ll use this sort of stuff as ‘proof’ that Guido is a sewer rat when of course he is really a seeker (and bringer) of truth.

    Give it a rest, old love!

    In my experience it has always been nepotism, whereby the bosses son gets parachuted into a position of responsibility and privilege that is way over his station. In Hagues case it is having his own bum boy. Some might call this sour grapes or jealousy but this just does not sit right with me.

    In terms of expenses scandal, there’s not much public anger about the employment of Special Advisors (compared to, say, suspicious rent claims).

The chances are The People wouldn’t be sufficiently outraged by the story and it would end up looking like a gay witch hunt. Which, in fact, would be the primary motivation.

    Indigo says:

    A new cold wind seems to be blowing in – it seems that Joe Bloggs’ tolerance of homossexuals has just gone past breaking point. The freebie newspaper Newsshopper this week printed, as its “star” letter, this

    and the south London gay community has gone into a flat spin about the writer’s remarks about gays, lesbians and bisexuals. The newspaper has justified the “star” award by saying that this is because it provokes debate. I am not saying much about this because prominent local gays are trying to make it a police matter.

    But I am interested in what the incident seems to reveal about how the recent relentless revelations about the hypocrisy of gays has been received by the proletariat. Mandelson “placing” gay people in jobs all over Whitehall? The ever-lengthening list of politicians who pretended to be straight in order to get power – there are so many of them, why didn’t they derive the strength from each other to be “out” from the start, instead of mewling – after they were outed – about how difficult it was to come out? The laws that prevent Catholic adoption agencies from placing children with straight couples instead of gays, in accordance with their faith; laws that criminalise B&Bs that don’t want gay guests (and yet there are lots of gay B&Bs). The male priests abusing boys for decades. Gay couples wanting to “have children”, although they can’t biologically have children together; and to have their partnerships called “marriage” – why can’t they choose another word?

    It looks to me as if there is a huge backlash starting, and the south London gay community would have done better to ignore the “star” letter in the Newsshopper. Had they done so, it would probably have been forgotten very quickly.

    As I say, I am staying out of this. I am interested in watching what seems to be a change of mood in the zeitgeist. Looking back on how many of our leaders who got us into the present economic mess were/are gay or suspected of being gay – and ESPECIALLY Mandelson – homosexuals may need to do some fast damage-limitation if they are not to find themselves blamed entirely by Joe Bloggs for his loss of buying power – booze, fags, satellite tv, etc.

      I suspect you are reading far too much fictional literature.

      Your homophobia has been fuelled by mandy who flaunted his homosexuality in an attempt to divert attention away from his evilness.

      Unfortunately he has, unfairly, as a consequence, given a bad name to homosexuals, rather than to troughing, bullying, incompetent labour where the real opproprium belonged.

      ‘Honest’ is what matters!

    Telegraph hints at Brown’s descent into schizophrenia:

    “I don’t understand why they’re beating about the Bush and Blair about Brown, though. We know the authorities all both sides of the House are colluding to keep Brown away from the public gaze, and we know the Press are also covering-up Brown’s “illness”.

    How much longer can this shabby conspiracy of silence last?”

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
