An Open Letter to Paul Dacre

The Cellar
House of Commons
London
SW1 0AA

Mr Paul Dacre,
Editor the Daily Mail


Dear Mr Dacre,

I would like to apply for a job as one of your columnists. As you will see below your current columnist Andrew Pierce has deemed my work worthy of your hallowed pages, he will no doubt be happy to provide a reference.

In the last few weeks Mr Pierce has found my website a wonderful resource for his columns:

Since the beginning of October Mr Pierce has seen fit to lift an entire story concerning William Hague’s former Special Advisor Christopher Myers, he didn’t even try to find a new angle on it. Two days later my story concerning the Tories putting a press officer on Newsnight was lifted almost word for word. And just this morning exactly the same happened with my exclusive concerning Steve Hilton and Rageh Omar.

Given Mr Pierce appears to simply lift my copy and scoops without any payment, perhaps you should simply cut out the middle man and get your stories from the source? You may be unaware that Mr Pierce has a magpie-like long track record of cutting and pasting the most sparkling stories that would shame those avian thieves, as indeed Private Eye reported several years ago. Despite this Pierce continues to deny he is even a reader of my “ugly and boorish” website. You will no doubt agree the evidence suggests otherwise.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours in middle class solidarity,

Guido Fawkes Esq.

        The Daily Mail/Mail on Sunday has been ripping off plenty others over the years, including online news portal The Register and Mil Millington, who wrote the amusing website Things My Girlfiend And I Have Argued About.

        You’d be better served taking the trouble to read and learn – your writing is so poor you should take some lessons from the hacks who use your stuff and edit it so that it becomes legible. Besides, as you claim to be a libertarian why are you suddenly being a control freak about your content?

        Get off your soapbox Sta1nes, you’re not so special.

            Anybody know what happened to the money from that trust, that the bangle one set up, which subsequently disappeared?

            margaretmoran supported that apparently.

          • Animal says:

            So when did you first become a window licker?

            If Sta1nes thought the content of this blog was actually worth something then there would be a demand for royalties for each article that gets copied in another rag. But no, instead he just bleats like a spoilt fat little child as if he’s the only one who’s been ripped off by Dacre’s odious little collection of hacks. He isn’t, and there’ll be plenty more in the future.

            The Mail has long had no respect for original works and it’s up to Sta1nes whether he wishes to go after them. He could be making easy money with regular cheques from the likes of Dacre instead of having a hissy fit in the mould of BoringshiteEllie.

          That comment lost all credibility when it used the adjective ‘amusing’ and the title of Mil Millington’s tiresome Grauniad column in the same sentence.

      The Truth is 3 token Asian Lords have been stealing from the UK Taxpayer. They (the Asian Lords) see nothing wrong in this as this is EXPECTED in Asian politics. Even worse they have been given an easy exit, just pay the dosh back and you will be reinstated.

            These fine upstanding members of the looting community, deserve our full support in these difficult times.
            It is quite easy for us in the west to look upon financial probity as a endearing trait in a member of the Lords. However, this kind of fuddy duddy thinking went out with decimilisation and now in our vibrant and diverse nation, the new honesty, is dishonesty.
            Let’s face it, the boring old days of decency in public life, are long gone and the new progressive era of theft and incompetence, is here to stay.

      And guess what those hand wringingly anxious signs might be..?

      - Goes to bed late, late late.. like 3am.
      - Can’t get up in the morning, likes to lie in
      - May favour dark coloured clothing
      - Doesn’t talk much, just nods
      - Feels as if they aren’t a part of your world anymore
      - Hangs out with similar types of friends
      - Listens to gloomy or music
      - Listens to punk/metal style music
      - Suddenly changes hairstyle completely. If it was long has it cut. If it was short grows it long.
      - develops an interest in astrology or the occult.

      Yeah right. Thank you FeMail for another inepth look at a problem.

        I was going to add – when an MP thieves public money we have the opportunity to chuck him or her out. However, when a peer does the same thing, they appear to be there for the duration. Doesn’t strike me as justice. Nick £125,000 from your employer and your feet won’t touch the ground. Do it as a Lord and the sanction seems pretty limited to me.

      (Wikipedia) In 2005, she was selected as part of a delegation to tackle Islamic extremism by Tony Blair. However, in August 2006, Uddin was a signatory to an open letter to Tony Blair criticising the UK’s foreign policy. It was an open letter criticising the government’s stance on the Middle East. It was signed by three Muslim MPs (which included Sadiq Khan and Mohammed Sarwar), three peers and 38 community groups. The letter was criticised by the then Foreign Office minister, Kim Howells who criticised Muslim leaders for condemning British foreign policy.[12] In 2008, she was made the chairwoman of the ethnic minority women’s taskforce.

    Daily Mail Exclusive
    by Andrew Pierce

    Cauliflower faced blogger Guido Fawkes has indicated his advertising revenue is falling by applying for a job at the Daily Mail.

    Fawkes, whos real name is >research req’d – can’t be arsed – paste here< is not a real journalist, which is quite evident by his accurate and evidence based articles. He is considered to be an unwelcome addition to the old boy journo cabal, mainly because he breaks interesting and pertinent content, which, quite honestly, causes a lot of grief for real journalists and hack reporters.

    David Cameron aims to outdo Thatcher as he attacks the welfare state in Britain

    The Conservative Prime Minister sets out his plan to tackle something even the Iron Lady Thatcher couldn’t in the 1980’s, the concept of security ‘from the cradl…e to the grave’ as set out by the post war Labour government as he attacks the post-war consensus between capital and labour. David Cameron intends to destroy the principles of universality on which Nye Bevan set up the welfare state after 1945.

    Ed Miliband has to put the defence of the welfare state at the heart of Labours attack on the Tory/Liberal government before the Tory/Lib-Dem government introduce a £20 charging to patients for visit their Doctor along with prescription charges which now exist only in England since Scotland has followed Wales and Northern Ireland and abolished them. Thanks to Thatcher many people in Britain no longer have access to an NHS dentist when Cameron and Clegg are finished they won’t have access to an NHS doctor either. The National Health Service was set up by Nye Bevan to provide free treatment for all along with free secondary schooling, payments to mothers of school-age children, and payments to pensioners, the unemployed and the sick.

    The daily added some women suspected the prying eyes of the ‘woman’ hiding behind the nikab informed the Operations Department of the Ministry of Interior.
    The cops rushed to the area and as they were speaking to the ‘woman’, the voice behind the nikab unfolded the truth.

    “We consider the suspension should be renewed if baronessu has not repaid the money by the end of the current Parliament”

    They don’t expect her to cough up that £125k do they? because it all went into that marble palace in bangleland didn’t it?

    Anybody know what happened to the money of that uddintrust that she set up which subsequently disappeared.

      They’ll have a field day with every single cut, the thing is New Labour and the invertebrate MSM at the time along with the greedy banksters cause all of this in the first place. The BBC still haven’t learned anything from what’s happened, here they are blow jobbing the Labour parties new generation shadow Chancellor “Postman Pat”

    Please tell me I heard that right, Crick on Newsnight reckons that the govt are about to tell the BBC to fund the free TV licences for the over 75s.

    This apparently will save half a billion a year, and coincidentally reduce the income for the biased socialists by about 15%

    PLEASE PLEASE may this be right, can you imagine how much whining there will be in White City Salford..?

    News night seems to be finding its flagship feet again , quite enjoyably topical and challenging , Crick was sweating abit over BBc to fund free Tv licence (makes sense to CW ) although £550mn is quite a hit , even when you do fat salary slim down excercise , still short, they could just close TV at 12pm and open at 6am , or perhaps opt for a low rate for over 75s , but pretty clear its another example of unaffordable socialist giveaway debt converter . I dont know if selling off world service is any good , perhaps could go internet only fee pay ? Defintely sell off channel 4 its edging towards yet another porn and gambling channel anyway.

    being as defence is on all front pages and very strange they read too , CW is not an expert and always enjoys Admiral west experience , however its a tough call as arms are very hi tech these days even when trying to find a balanced ability . its a bit wrong headed of the lid dems to diss trident as it was probebely the thing that allowed there party to be born , we are however skint and even if not coldwar standards , unless the other nutters get rid of theirs , it acts as balance . I was listening to ming Cambell and he was right about , how it has to fit together which means a little different thinking to cold war . Tonight the ark royal and harriers are to go , these things have life spans I can see that , but I will make a defence of the harrier in the face of the joint strike fighter , anything that is catapult launched has to endure heavy takeoffs/landings and useually means shrter air frame times .Given that the plane is a platform is there not a case that harrier performs the role of apache , I know we have spent £2bn on joint strike fighter already , but given the progress in engine design and performance and the knowledge of harrier , particulary from carriers could a saving not be made on attack helicopters .As for heavy lift helicopters if we cannot build anything comparable to blackhawk or chinnok ourselves for less money then might as well buy them if they are as good as the americans claim .
    Of course if harrier wasnt such a well engineered plane than cant really argue it but at least they were built in the UK

      BBC: “But the Financial Times reports that Mr Cameron will also say spending will double on alleviating poverty in areas of conflict – such as Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia – to £4bn by 2015, while funding to other states like Russia and China will be reduced.”
      The pre-election Cameron fan club on here appears long ago to have slunk off with its tail between its legs. Should any stragglers remain, perhaps they might care to hazard a defence of the indefensible.
      Give it your best shot.

    Bitter Pills and riff raff says:

    Look at them, they clearly aren’t peers of the realm now are they. A jumped up johnny is just a jumped up johnny. To be a Lord you are upper class, if people do not act upper class then they should not be considered a Lord. I for one will never address ‘Lord’ Sugar as anything other than Mr. Sugar. Mr in itself implies he is a gentleman, something that I would queston.

    Bring back the heriditaries I say, kick all these corrupt johnnies out.

    The idea that any of them should be addressed as m’lord I find laughable only for otherwise crying at the breakdown of established tradition and societal values.

    It’s shocking the people who get made peers these days, Brown’s ex SpAd is now a Dame… If you’ve won a battle, lead the country or carried out some other daring, valuable and selfless act in the national interest then yes a peerage is a fitting tribute. Putting up with being yelled at by an autistic one-eyed scotsman for a few years doesn’t quite cut the mustard.

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.”
