Why Myers? Part I : Hague’s Boy Slammed Our Boys

As William Hague joined Sapper Matthew Westen on the Andrew Marr Show this past Remembrance Sunday the campaign aide he would later appoint as the third Special Adviser to Her Majesty’s Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary was giving a running commentary in an online chatroom.

Hague told Andrew Marr’s viewers that the Conservatives would, if they won the election, make the war in Afghanistan the government’s “single most urgent focus”. Hague solemnly thanked Sapper Westen for all he had done and all he had sacrificed in Afghanistan. Meanwhile at his keyboard Christopher Myers was online, tapping away chatting to his online friends:

“There was a chap on the the Marr show today, easily younger than me, who had lost his legs and one arm. I know that people sign up for the armed forces in the anticipation of conflict, and casualties are inevitable, but it’s all the harder to justify when it’s in the name of an unwinnable quagmire which is nothing more than a political folly.“

In public Hague was saying

“We’re here to make our own nation more secure and our allies more secure. We’re here really to try to make sure that Afghans can look after their own affairs and their own security in the future without Afghanistan presenting a danger to the rest of the world.”

In private that very same Remembrance Sunday, Chris Myers answered a chatroom friend in response to the question “What motivation do our soldiers of today have in Afghanistan?” candidly:

“Some vague notion that creating a stable state in Afghanistan, which the Soviets before us couldn’t do, will defeat global terror. It doesn’t exactly stand up to scrutiny – terror will always find a home and the major terror plots executed or foiled in the UK have all been home grown.”

In public Hague took the line “We regard progress in Afghanistan, and in the closely-related problems of Pakistan, as the single most urgent focus in foreign affairs for our work as a new government. Failure there would leave the world, ourselves included, much more open to terrorist attack.”

The dissonance between the line Hague gives to the public, and the line the close friend he would appoint as his Foreign Office Special Adviser gives his friends in private raises many questions, not the least of which being: Why did he appoint Myers?

Guido thinks we need to know:

  1. Did Mr Hague discuss with Mr Myers his views with regard to the government’s number one foreign policy priority before giving him the Special Advisers job in the FCO. If not, why not?
  2. Does the Foreign Secretary privately agree with his close aide that the war in Afghanistan is an “unwinnable quagmire”?
  3. Did Christopher Myers pass Developed Vetting before he was appointed to a position which would give him access to sensitive documents?
  4. If he passed Developed Vetting, why did it not pick up that he was politically unsuitable for the job he was given?
  5. Did Christopher Myers lie about his true feelings in order to secure the job, or were his views on British foreign policy known to Mr Hague?

    it’s a well known fact that ministers must only appoint Special Advisors who do and always have had positions, expressed in private, identical to that expressed in public by that Minister.

    You should just be more upfront about your desire to question whether it was all a gay love affair instead of hiding behind a pretense of suitability

    I’m not seeing any particular dissonance here.

    Yes Afghanistan is a screwed up mess, but we have to make the best of a bad job and try and leave it in a better shape.

    Do we have to have the tedious ‘all opinions in black and white’ of Labour, or is it actually better to have some shades of grey from a thoughtful politician who can discuss in more depth than simplistic ‘on message’ soundbites.

    This Hague bashing really is bloody tedious.

    righty right wing (mrs) says:

    Myers was completely unqualified for the job of advisor to a future or serving Foreign Secretary.

    He lacked the education & the experiencxe of international affairs & completely lacked any credible knowledge of the global Jihad we face.

    It begs the question why was he so clsoe to William & why was he kept in the position after the election, inspite of his obvious shortcomings?

    If I were a Tory I would say that Hague has to go – this daliance of whatever hue it was is not going away is it?

    Troops out.

    Of course any politician should surround himself with people who share his/her views. The confrontational approach of UK politics means that any disagreement in the ranks is seen as division and you need folks you can trust around you. What makes my burger hot and fusty is the probability that Myers was employed on public expense due to a special relationship. Millionaire Billy could employ Myers at his own expense and I would agree with some posts and say so what, there is nothing to see here, but misuse of the public purse is wrong and criminal.

    If that is what Myers is whispering in Hagues ear, then I think him the perfect choice and I am very happy for him to be there.

    So when did he “slam” our boys, Guido?

    If aides were appointed directly from the civil service, as some would prefer, it would arguably be improper (if not illegal) to vet them on the basis of moderate political views. How big a deal are these occasional differences if they take almost a year to come to light and then only after an obsessive fishing trip?

    There has been no talk or definition of victory in Afghanistan for almost a decade. I think it’s safe to say that “winning” has not been on the agenda for some time.

    This is pretty paltry stuff.

    Seriously, Guido, this Hague-bashing is getting desperately tiresome and has the appearance of becoming something of an obsession with you…

    Don’t be silly, I’m sure you actually know what developed vetting is. It’s a security clearance, not a political suitability test. Agreeing with the Foreign Secretary about everything under the sun is not covered by developed vetting.

    sockpuppet #4 says:

    Not particularly valid.

    He goes against the “training camp” notion of us being in afganistan. Now that might be wrong, but he’s not explaining that in detail. I’d want some full explanation. A quick wiki says that the most inept UK one – the shoe bomb bloke – did actually train in Afganistan. And today’s news about German nationals reinforces that (even if they were over the border in pakistan – shows the pressure counts for something).

    So I retract “not particularly valid”. Its a view that makes Myers a complete prat.

    Lord Palmerston says:

    Let me understand this correctly, when a parliamentary candidate (in this case Greg Stone) uses a website (in this case, order-order.com) to make disparaging comments about his would-be fellow members of the House of Commons, it’s all ‘good fun before we disappear down the pub’. But when a man (in this case, Christopher Myers) who doesn’t work for a Conservative MP uses a website (in this case, moopy) to make a comment that doesn’t happen to entirely coincide with the views of the Conservative MP he will one day work for, this is a national scandal.

    Have I got that right?

    Being a SpAd does not mean you have to sychophantically bow to your boss’s policies. The role of the adviser is to advise, the role of the Minister is to then agree with it, or dismiss it. The role of the adviser is not to just bend over and say “yes sir”. Which is, ironically, exactly what you’re insinuating Myers has done.

Everyone I know at the FO, MoD and DfID thinks Afghanistan is an unwinnable folly from which we must beat a dignified retreat without ruining our relationship with the Yanks. However, Hague, Cameron and Fox can’t say that because of something called diplomacy.

    Never mind what some light on his feet SpAd thinks – Kipling summed it up back in 1917, in what has to be his most powerful poem:


    They shall not return to us, the resolute, the young,
    The eager and whole-hearted whom we gave:
    But the men who left them thriftily to die in their own dung,
    Shall they come with years and honour to the grave?

    They shall not return to us, the strong men coldly slain
    In sight of help denied from day to day:
    But the men who edged their agonies and chid them in their pain,
    Are they too strong and wise to put away?

    Our dead shall not return to us while Day and Night divide –
    Never while the bars of sunset hold.
    But the idle-minded overlings who quibbled while they died,
    Shall they thrust for high employments as of old?

    Shall we only threaten and be angry for an hour?
    When the storm is ended shall we find
    How softly but how swiftly they have sidled back to power
    By the favour and contrivance of their kind?

    Even while they soothe us, while they promise large amends,
    Even while they make a show of fear,
    Do they call upon their debtors, and take counsel with their friends,
    To confirm and re-establish each career?

    Their lives cannot repay us – their death could not undo –

    So, somewhat more politely and without the swearing.
    You have brought a young soldier into your vendetta with Hague and I find that unacceptable. Please consider that not only this young soldier but others do not hold as to your opinion; it is not for you to take this soldiers injuries or actions as an advertisement for your own needs. Please show some respect, if you want to go after Hague by all means do so, but do not use our soldiers as a gimmick.

    I’m not seeing the problem. Hague is talking bollocks about Afgahn to placate our ‘allies’.

    The boy seems to know the score. Sounds like he would have been useful to have around the FCO.

    We should have got out at the end of 2001. We’d offed the Taliban government, and all the Al Queda types we hadn’t killed had fucked off to Pakistan with the help of the ISI. All we needed was a small SF/INT presense to target problem individuals (as the US is doing with drone attacks Pakistan now)

    The fact that Afgahnistan was (and is) a medieval repressive shitehole was not our problem, ever.

    “We’re here because we’re here because we’re here because we’re here.” Nice to see our generals and politicians haven’t learned from history.

    The uncomfortable truth, and I fully understand that it is the last thing that soldiers and their families want to hear, is that those 300+ lives have been wasted, those lost limbs, eyes, and mental trauma have been for nothing. That may sound callous or cold blooded, but I think that stringing people along, telling them that everything will be alright if we just stay there a little longer, as more and more casualties stack up only to end up with the same inevitable result is much much worse.

    Whatever small gains or success stories have been made will be reversed soon after we are out of there and the leaders are just in a state of denial.

    September 11th was not an act of war – wars can only happen between states, and there was no evidence of complicity by the Afghan regime, only their giving shelter to Bin Laden after the event.

    There was plenty of evidence that another country in the region was directly involved via their security service, but since they’ve got nukes and a lot more people than the other ‘Stan to their north, war wasn’t even considered.

    The whole action is and has been a complete mess based only on the desire of the US to see something done, and our commitment of thousands of troops was way out of line with other Nato members, all due to Blair’s obsession with licking the arse of that idiot chimp GWB.

    See my post above for some Kipling to educate you on the realities behind getting involved in the region – it was true in 1917 and remains unfortunately apt today.

    Strewth! Guido, if you want a REAL SCOOP – Check out what that flamin’ galah Judy Nunn MEP is getting up to on the continent. All in the name of the British people. Repugnant I tell ya.

    The Justification that dare not speak its name. says:

    We are in Afghanistan for one reason only: Pakistan.
    This is the real reason for the presence of British and US troops in this part of the world. It is feared that Pakistan could fall to the Talliban who would then possess a Nuclear arsenal. Puts it in a different perspective dont you think.

    ron Vibentrop says:

    The Taliban were NOT in Pakistan until the Americans and NATO decided to push them out of Afghanistan. They were quite happy with their AK47s living in caves and generally giving the locals a bit of stick as all previous regimes/warlords have done. Now thanks to the idiocy of America and the UK we’ve pushed them into a position of really getting their hands on those much talked about WMDs. Fucking brilliant!
    Afghanistan has always been concerned that Pakistan is going to invade them so the protection of Pakistan drivel is utter nonsense.

    Ex Para says:

    You too need to show some respect. I have no truck with a corrupt government sending our soldiers off to an illegal war and I have and still to this day see good men left alone and broken with no help from the politicians or MOD but that is another matter. My comment here was on Guido using the picture of this soldier to further his own cause, can you not see that or do you frankly not care and simply use my post to gob off; by your comments you again show no respect to our soldiers, if you want to make a comment about their treatment do so but don’t highjack me.

    By the way I have grown up, maybe you should grow some

    A bit like Heat, except with politicians instead of soap stars.

    Bill Withers says:

    In William Hague’s very public statement over Myers he stated:

    “He (Myers) is easily qualified for the job he holds. Any suggestion that his appointment was due to an improper relationship between us is utterly false, as is any suggestion that I have ever been involved in a relationship with any man”.

    What Hague has failed to explain, how was Myers easily qualified for the job given his lack of experience? And although he denies impropriety with any man, he does not explicitly deny he is Gay! You can be Gay without having sex. Bill Clinton denied have sex “with that woman”, because he defined sex in the biblical sense; penetration.

    Enough already!
    Boring, boring.
    I know you are under a self-imposed promise to be as hard on the new regime as you were on Labour. That’s as it should be and we all support that attitude but this thread is going nowhere.
    IMO you do your best work when you “follow the money”. Keep after the thieving bastards.

    A Harry and Paul fan says:

    William Hague – queer? Well, he looks like a queer, sounds like a queer, and he’s on television a lot. So he must be queer.

    I’m going to put him down as “probably queer”.

    Calm down Guido says:

    Guido, you’re confusing the importance of a homophobic-sniper-from-the-sidelines who doesn’t even use his own name, with a man who has contributed greatly to the ACTUAL running of this country.

    Pipe down and go away on this non issue.

    I think that the way that you are hounding Hague is disgusting Guido. You made your point….maybe you should just shut up now. MAYBE there was the tiniest public interest in the room thing. This just looks like a spiteful campaign now. Hague is a good man. You have shown yourself to be a nasty vindictive little bully. Does it make you feel better about yourself to belittle others?! How sad. I will no longer be reading your blog….

    It’s Guido that has lost touch with reality on this “story”.

    The real SLAMMING is being sent half-way round the world, tour after tour, to risk life and limb for a cause that is far from clear and with no obvious objective in mind.

    And then to be treated like shit if you happen to come home wounded, after falling prey to weapons that can be easily defended against with proper forethought in procurement.

    Being ex-forces, I have no problem at all with people in and around the goverment thinking more than once about the human costs and benefits of in terms of servicemen carrying out operations. I want them to do this MORE, so that soldiers feel LESS inclined to question their mission themselves.

    Red Ed the Manchurain Candidate says:

    Hague increasingly looks like he is a liar and a hypocrite who has put his lover with no apparent qualifications into a immensley serious government job. That is of immense public interest as it is corupt.

    Also, his judgement is in serious question now, especially after going all-in with the Jonathan Aitken-esque dead fetus defence.

    Anonymous says:

    Afghanistan is as much a folly as it has always been. Not for nothing has the second inviolable rule of the armed forces been “Never Invade Afghanistan” (The first being “Never invade Russia”)

    Everyone knows it’s madness. But it was instigated by Blair and we are now there and having interfered and killed civilians and so on, we obviously have a duty to it and not just walk out leaving chaos.

    While the Tories could criticise this in Opposition, in Government they obviously have to deal with it. The Private View will not have changed, but policy takes place in the public arena where if the Foreign Minister decleres it a disaster, it will become one. Afghanistan is a nightmare, trying to sort it out will not happen overnight, cut Hague some slack and let’s get Blair arrested for his crimes.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
