Well Over Half Query Hague

Buried away in the Sunday Times was a poll on the Hague story – 46% of people asked think the Foreign Secretary was telling the truth about his relationship with Christopher Myers. That leaves over half the country doubting the Foreign Secretary’s words.

Asked about that statement, a small majority of 59% think he was right to publish it leaving a lot doubting Hague’s political judgement. On whether it was right to share a room  a slim majority (43% to 42%) think not. For those lining up to say this is a non-story, perhaps they should take on board that well over half of voters now have serious doubts about the man representing them on the global stage. Even the loyalists at ConservativeHome have registered a drop in approval. Easy on those “I will survive” tweets…

    From the Mirror:

    They can however be separated to make two beds, and the double duvet and sheet replaced with single ones. Although one visitor to the room said: “There’d still be barely a few inches between them.”

    How many inches would that be?

    From the poll:

    “the balance of opinion comes down strongly on Hague’s side on whether he is telling the truth or not (46% think he is, 12% think he isn’t) and whether he was correct to release his personal statement (59% think he was, 17% that he wasn’t)”

    Not quite what you’re making out is it.

    What has Profumo to do with it ? he resigned because he LIED to The House of Commons. That is commonplace nowadays. Profumo did pennance and was a marvel of philanthropy to shame any politician alive today.

    Don’t talk about Profumo and Hague in the same breath – Hague used public funds to hire unqualified personnel. Adviser on the Falkland Islands !!!!!! Just who does Hague think he is conning – 2:2 Durham – new entry qualification for Ruritania’s Foreign Office

    Guido: come off it this is ridiculous. You are denting your credibility.

    a. That photo shows twin beds, pushed together. They can obviously be configured as twin beds (as the Mirror article admits) and are not a Double.

    b. People who “don’t know” if he is telling the truth are not “questioning” him, it’s just that they have no opinion on the subject.

    I’m a raving Tory and frankly I can’t be arsed if willie is a shirt lifter or not. What bothers me is that they were so fucking wishy washy they couldn’t put away the worst labour government in labour government history, they compounded the error by not immediately sorting out the bbc and are now living to regret it and didn’t immediately highlight the tens of millions of pounds of tax payers money being given to unions to pay for union organisers, and stop it.
    Hague as number two man gets a tick in the ‘guilty of all of the above box’, so not too much syypathy here.

    Logic has never been your strong point – only 12% said they didn’t think he was telling the truth. The rest probably just don’t give a stuff. Still trying to deflect attention from your fellow master of the black arts?

    the twin beds are sold that way to customers with a double duvet and bedding

    you would have to specifically request the hotel to get brand new bedding replace it, relpace the quilt, and get staff to pull the beds apart.

    even if you did all that it’ss obvious from the photo they wouldn’t even be further apart more than a few inches beause of the desk tables and small amount of room

    Give it up Guido. You’ve moved on from revealing stories to desperately trying to justify this story. This about the 3rd or 4th post so far defending your choice to pursue this story. If you’re proud of it then just shut up and be proud of it, if not just say so, stop desperately trying to defend yourself.

    Move on man unless you’ve got some further facts to reveal.

    William Hague took his dr ver and friend Chris Myers on a taxpayer-funded trip to Afghanistan and on the way back spent two nights with him in Bahrain.

    The Foreign Secretary paid for Mr Myers to fly first-class from Bahrain back to London. Mr Myers also accompanied Mr Hague on visits to Northern Ireland funded by wealthy Tory donors.

    I go to Roger’s Corner Shop because he sells the toothpaste I like. If he stops selling the toothpaste I like, and starts selling shit instead, I will stop going there. Maybe not straight away, because for a while I’ll keep going out of some combination of habit, loyalty, and hope of a return to happier days. But eventually I’ll give up and go to Tesco instead.

    Roger knows that, that’s why he keeps selling the toothpaste I like.

Brown never really got over it and when the papers started calling him a confirmed bachelor found a woman to marry tout suite so he could become PM.

    Observe a certain likeness, for instance, in the height of forehead, tilt of eyebrows, structure of eye sockets, line of the mouth, shape of the chin, etc. Another example of the rich and famous choosing partners who look like themselves.

    Roger might start selling shit if his automatic-customers-through-the-door-ometer told him that he got loads of extra customers when he started selling shit. Whether his automatic-customers-through-the-door-ometer is able to distinguish regular customers from curious passers-by attracted by the novelty of seeing a corner shop that sells shit is a different question.

    Having said that, if you were to compare the readerships of, say, The Sun and, say, The Independent, you might conclude there is a ready market for shit. So perhaps it’s more a question of whether you want to be shit seller or not.

    Give it up? Lol, this isn’t going away. It’s nothing to do with homophobia – if Hague had come out years ago as a bisexual, most Brits would have accepted it and judged the man on his ability. As it is, now, he has been subject to blackmail for nearly three decades. His judgment is sub zero after panicking and revealing multiple misscarriages to save his skin. He needs to go. Now, together with all the hypocritical perverts that infest public life. And yes, it IS perverted to have multiple bi rent boys whilst maintaing a sham marriage. Ffion will be the last to know that she is just another in a long line of political beards.

    My concern in all of this is about favoritism, people appointed to public paid positions without obvious qualifications, without a proper selection process – Hague has not answered those questions but chosen to dwell on the apparent “gay” accusation and brought his missus into this as well. I am not in the least interested in the home life of the Hagues, though I bear them no ill will, I am interested only in knowing that people being paid by the public purse are there on merit – and not for any other reason.

    Imagine if Hague had appointed some attractive 25 year old female as his SPAD who was woefully under qualified for such an important job? Then it came out he gave her expensive gifts, and she stayed overnight in the same room with him on a number different occasions. The Guardianistas would have gone berserk and it would be huge news, and evidence of not only infidelity but an incredible lack of judgment for someone in such an important role.

    As it stands no Hague apologist has been able to answer the simple question – WHY was this hugely inexperienced former driver and recent graduate with no apparent foreign policy experience given this important role in the first place. The gifts and room-sharing just make it even more suspicious.

    Mr Plum says:

    Just looked this up on wiki, wondered where he got his inspiration for wars

    Beaconsfield has always been one of the safest seats held by the Conservative Party, and a Conservative victory was expected. The real fight was for second place; the Liberal candidate had finished a close third in 1979, and the Alliance was seeking to establish itself as the main challenger to the Conservatives, while Labour fought to defends its position as the main opposition party.

    On a slightly reduced turnout, the result was a win for the Tim Smith, with a fractional increase in the Conservative share of the vote. Tyler increased the Alliance’s share from 17.1% to 26.8%, a significant gain, but still a disappointment when compared with the breakthroughs seen in previous by-elections.

    Labour’s vote was nearly halved from 20.2% in 1979, down to 10.4%, and Blair lost his deposit as his vote was below the 12.5% threshold.

    The relatively good Conservative showing may be partly attributed to the surge in support for the government due to the on-going Falklands War.

Somehow its ok for the Tories.

    Hague’s moral choices also need further investigation. If he is having a secret double life as a gay, decieving the woman he made a pact with in the eyes of the Lord, then he would be a hypocrite, and I for one don’t trust him to be in government.

    William is clearly , intellectually, head and shoulders above the infantile militwit. He made a mistake but he has more than paid for it this last week. Unfortunately, Ffion also has had to share the pressure. And that I think is unfair. I really think that it’s time a line was drawn under this issue.

    A much more important question tonight is Where is gordon? He was supposed to appear in the HoC today , at least according to his own spokesperson, and he has yet to be seen.

    I’ve heard rumours that he’s hiding in the HoC loo waiting for the vote on AV to be taken later tonight. When that happens he’s going to shoot out of the loo and vote really quickly and then disappear into the murk of the westminster night.

    What an absolute coward this man is! What happened to that moral compass he kept banging on about?

Although when you ring up the Hotel du Vin, in your chosen town or City, and ask for a twin room, they probably won’t say ‘oh do you mean the, nudge nudge, twin room where the beds are nearly touching?’ So if that’s what you’re after you may be dissapointed.
    It may also be an eye opener to you to find that, in between different guests occupying rooms, they do actually change the linen with ‘brand new bedding and sheets’. Just like being in an Hotel really.

    Committee on Standards in Public Life says:

    It is ridiculous to criticise Guido for pursuing Hague on this… the heart of the issue is whether Myers’ unusual and improbable appointment was made by Hague to facilitate an affair – by allowing them to travel and work together – all on the taxpayer’s shilling. It wouldn’t be easy having a discreet relationship if you are the Foreign Secretary as every minute of your day is timetabled, so why not bring your lover inside? In other words, the issue is a serious abuse of office – not being gay, not even having an affair or unhappy marriage. The only reason the issue hasn’t gone fully nuclear is that no-one in the mainstream media broke the story, so they are sniffy about Guido beating them to it and fretful that ‘internet rumours’ are showing up how feeble they are as news hounds.

    The BBC held a poll sigh “in line with other polls” showed a clear majority of the public support cutting the deficit. This had the BBC apoplectic with rage. Clearly the BBC have an agenda to spread as much fear as possible, to talk this country into a double-dip recession and they are palpably desperate to get their labour pets into office again.

    I could not give a shit whether Hague is gay, transgendered, mixed sex or whatever, BUT, whatever he is, he should be honest about it.

    For those who cliamthat this is a private matter between him and Ffion, I say bullshit.

    Hague had advertised himself as a heterosexual family man. That is how he has defined his character and his suitability to be an MP, former party leader and senior cabinet member.

    Being straight, gay, bi, or asexual makes no difference, but being honest DOES make a big difference.

    IF Hague is gay, then this would demonstrate that he is not only decietful to his wife, (if she did not know) but he will have deceived all his voters too.

    This problem is in addition to the very real and even more serious problem of Hague wasting public money to employ a man utterly unfit to hold the SpAd job he was given, by Hague.

    Correct. This is as much about the old idea of being above one’s station.

    When I was an IT contractor I would have to travel a lot. I worked for a company that was often a sub contractor. If my company was paying hotel expenses on a given contract, then (being run by tight gigs) it would expect all the IT grunts to share accomodation in whatever shitty motel it could find near the job. We did not get a say in who shared with who, but one thing is for sure, when a manager was staying, he or she would get their own room to themselves. There is no way we would be sharing a room with a person of a senior position in the company.

    If the company who employed our company was footing the bill, then we woul all get rooms to ourselves. Again, there is no way one of us grunts would ever bunk up with a manager.

    I cannot concieve of a reason for a man of Hague’s station to be bunking up with someone of a much much more junior rank, without there being some very dodgy reason for it.

    the boundary changes will most likely net the tories 10 seats, lose labour 5 and lose the liberals 10 with the rest being no change

    hardly the earthquake some of the spinners are pretending

    Nope. Brown was full of shit. Which is why only 29% of people voted for him. The other 71% realised his Mugabe-esque economic policy was ruination.

    What could be fairer than equal-sized constituencies?

    Why should the Isle of Wight (electorate 100K) have the same number of MPs as the Isle of Lewis (electorate 20K).

    Isn’t that just a teeny bit unfair Jack?

    Just publishing one figure (46%) is misleading. You have to give the Yes, No and Don’t Know figures or it’s meaningless.
    I read this article (which was “hidden away” in full view) and IIRC there was a thumping great Don’t Know vote associated with the 46% figure. I can’t check this because the ST is now electronically invisible.

    Batty Hattie Harmanescu says:

    There was an MP, Tory I think, who constantly found himself having to dismiss suggestions he was gay. About 10-15 years ago he was found sharing a hotel room in France with another man. His excuse – they were saving money by sleeping in one room.

    Didn’t convince anyone then, and doesn’t convince most people now. Think he lost a court case over it. I wonder can anyone remember his name?

    I really don’t care what Hague’s sexual orientation is, but for his own sake, and ours he needs to accept that it will all come out in the end, and be much worse when it does. In the meantime he needs to understand, that what most people object to is not the possibility he may be gay, but that he is lavishing a well paid job and hospitaltiy on a young man with no relevant qualifications or experience at public expense.

    How much of a fucking moron are you? Do you seriously believe that each and every unproven rumour or allegation has to be denied or questioned by CCHQ?

    So, everyone’s guilty until proved otherwise eh?

    Fucking stroll on. Which part of the Stasi are you?

    I stripped my shorts off for William and he pulled me towards him. His fly was open and he had his small Yorkshire cock out, it was very hard though and leaking pre-cum. William put his big Yorkshire hands around me and cupped both cheeks of my ass and worked them up and down all the time pulling me on and off his Yorkshire chopper. He yanked on my Insecure penis with his big Yorkshire hands and made me cum intensely. When I had recovered from my amazing cum he gently put his hands on my shoulders pushing me down. I have got a B.A so I knew what he wanted: I kneeled down some and looked up into his gloomy Yorkshire eyes as I opened my inviting mouth and wrapped my fragile lips around his small but hard-ish Yorkshire cock and sucked him tenderly into me. I guess he was too horny because he came in my silken mouth in about ten gorgeous sucks. He came and he came and I swallowed all his Yorkshire cum. THERE, SAID IT!

    I notice this weekend that a change to extradition rules is being drawn up to make it harder to extradite people.

    Do we have an extradition treaty with Bahrain?

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
