Leaky Brown-Era Downing Street Aide “Resigned”

Back in those heady days of June as the government were getting their grip on Whitehall, Guido highlighted a strange move in the Downing Street comms department:

“Interesting to note that Mark Flanagan, a Brown-era hire, brought in from the private sector by Stephen Carter, hasn’t been dumped but instead booted upstairs to a “strategic role”…”

Well Mark didn’t last long upstairs. He ended up at Portland PR after it was discovered he had been leaking sensitive information out via email. Funnily enough Mark isn’t returning Guido’s calls.  It isn’t clear why he was allowed the dignity to “resign” instead of being sacked outright…

    O/T but I wish Guido would spend some time looking into what is happening with McNulty.
    The fat thief appeared in a drunken stupor, glazed eyes next to Charlie Kennedy of all people(who appeared sober!) on the DP fronted by that labour supporting woman with a face like an arse.
    Shouting his loud mouth off at every opportunity, he must have gained 3 stone since the election so must be stealing money off the taxpayer from some other method.
    What is it with the bbc paying our money to put on ‘guests’ such as McNulty, Blears, Smith, Prescott and all the other thieves?
    Brillo and co have a lot to answer for, he even had the fat slag Abbot back on ‘This Week’ just to ruin everybody’s xmas.

    Instead of an advent calender, Guido should produce a rogues gallery version with every crooked MP Chaytor, McShane, Vaz, etc.and Lords/Lady’s Prescott, Martin, Udin etc. having a window which is opened to reveal their picture behind bars as they are committed.

    It could well have been our final chance.

    I remember when Guido posted it. The only sensible explanation back then was it was a sting. Tory HQ were waiting to discover who he leaked too, how he managed it and who his accomplices were. Then Tory security team alpha could swoop on the whole lot and boot them out as a warning to the others, or use him to feed false items to the Labour front bench.
    That would have been a possible, sensible explanation.

    Instead we discover that it was just plain old incompetence and total lack of judgment.

    Yep, Blair = NuLabour;

    Cameron = BluLabour.

    He had a clear choice between principle (being a Tory) and power (conceding to LibDem ideas). He chose power.

    After the election he had the moral position to justify running a minority government, but preferred the coalition as likely to last longer. It will destroy the LibDems electorally (no bad thing IMHO) and must be making many people like me consider options other than Canservative in future.

    Maybe we ought to have seen it coming. I put the ‘heir to Blair’ thing down at the time as a piece of inconsequential PR-inspired hubris. Now I’m not so sure.

    Hard left or hard right parties usually can’t win elections, they need to be controlled by a centrist PR leader to keep the public happy.

    I suppose Cameron is adopting a Tory-style Fabian approach, ie, don’t upset too many people all at once. War of attrition over time rather than risk outright war with the unions. I think Cameron will shaft 20% or so of the public sector, hopefully upset another 10% into leaving, by then the remainder will be the dregs, mongs and fabians and the public will squeal to chop the rest.

    While I am in general supportive of the generous loan terms of the new student fees row, I am left wondering if this is all about standardising EU nation budgets in the long term so they can be eventually brought under EU control.

    David Cameron says:

    I am a man, and I have done my Christmas shopping. I haven’t followed the typical stereotype for men and done it on Christmas Eve at whatever garage I could find, I have spent a lot of money as well as putting considerable time and effort into tracking down to the right presents. For instance, for Samantha, I purchased tickets to their favourite band which cost a fortune. I also bought a sparkling diamond necklace for my mum. For my sister, nail varnish and a day at a spa, my brother I got him some dry sherry and a delicious little plant pot. I can’t wait for Christmas, watching films and enjoying that lovely cosy warm feeling that comes with it. I believe I have made a great effort and have done a great job.

    I am also gay.

    Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur says:

    Trouble at the moment is that all three parties leaders look identical – rather like pink blancmanges.

    All this blurring and ambiguity of policy objectives just pushes people further towards the margins where the nastier alternatives lurk.

    Read any Labour or Tory bulletin board – it is full of people decrying the lack of traditional Labour or Tory values. I think politics might be better if Miliband was more overtly left wing and Cameron more overtly right wing (the Lis will be confused as they have been for 40 years – Thorpe about his sexuality, Ashdown about his duty to his wife and Kennedy about how many glasses of chardonnay is wise before making an important speech or TV appearance).

    Part of the problem is also that Labour has been in power so long that many important positions have been filled by their placemen and Cameron has lacked the balls to deal with this. First to go should have been Gus ODonnell followed swiftly by the ludicrous (and ludicrously named) Suzy Leather. The only decisive move in this regard I can recall the Tories making wasn’t even Dave but when Bojo managed to fire that archetypal Nu Labour copper Ian Blair right under Fat Jacqui’s nose.

    Anyone expecting radical change from Cameron or any kind of robustness towards Europe for example is severely deluding themselves.

    Dick the Prick says:

    That would require CCHQ being any way good at their job and in my quite limited experience they’re fucking useless. Before the election we were making shit up on regional policy because the daft bastards hadn’t even bothered to have a plan. Sure, hubris prevents a lot especially as it’s turned out to be a coalesced administration but is it too fucking difficult to outline policy options especially to the daft bastards doing the job. It’s all very well having qualifications on paper but politics is a contact sport and if the weasels don’t know that then, I fear, it’s just a slow walk to the inevitable.

    Their energy minister Huhne with Cameron’s full support, picks what is shaping up to be the coldest December on record (since records began in 1665) to announce measures which will add at least £500 onto fuel and heating bills in every household “because of AGW” which will be given to various wealthy landowners, corporations and in-laws.

    Everyone knows this amounts to a virtual death sentence for thousands of pensioners on fixed incomes who can barely afford to heat their homes now. They are Barking, Upminster and Crouch End, there is no doubt about it now.

    Blair was not Labour. He was One World Exploitation System. So is Cameron. They are put in place to deliver the policies required by the System.

    The System were worried about a Conservative outright victory in case the backbenchers became overly powerful. They were equally worried about a Conservative fourth defeat as the party could have fallen victim to a coup from the Mainstream, someone like Fox. So they rigged the ballot to get a hung parliament.

    Cameron’s job is to destroy what’s left of our democracy, and bury Britain deep in the EU, where the tendency to want to rebuild our independence will be crushed.

    The Mainstream will have to push Cameron out or see the Party’s support collapse. It would be better to lose ‘power’ back to labour and get the Conservative Party working than to sit there while Cameron does his work. That way there could be a Conservative future once more. It’s the only way to go. CAMERON OUT NOW.

    I think I’ve got this human rights thing sorted out now. I’m ready for the Today program.

    Mcnumpty- “ intend to repeal the human rights act in the UK and replace it with a UK wide bill of rights? But that will surely have to remain secondary to the European Court. that’s enshrined in the Treaty of Rome and its various amendments.

    BQmp. – “No, it take priority. All UK laws that conflict with Eu directives will take priority in all cases.”

    McNumpty- “but that isn’t possible. You can’t break the treaty or ignore the human rights act that you’ve signed into law.?”

    BQ- “Well, I’ve done it already. Ripped it all up.”

    McNumpty-“But you’ll be fined!”

    BQ- “So?”

    McNumpty- “So! So! People will still go to The Hague and have your ‘Britisher rulings’ overturned. you’ll be fined billions of euros..”

    “So? we won’t pay any fines.Or pay any attention to the judgment.”

    McNumpty- “..but..but..but you’ll be fined for non payment of fines..”

    “Really? well we won’t pay those either. We won’t take any notice. Just a polite reply to any demands “we received your judgment of the blah blah on the blah of 2011 and are currently considering our options..And then just ignore the whole thing..”

    McNumpty- “But..but..its unconstitutional..the courts! parliament! Shami Chakrabati! I God..what ..what..”

    BQ- “Calm yourself McNumpty. UK courts still have the highest powers. UK MPs still pass UK applicable laws..We used to manage all right before the 1970’s. What’s the problem?”

    McNumpty- “I…The Problem! Are you insane..the problem..the problem is…..the project demands compliance from member states and..and ..You can’t just ignore the highest court in Europe..I ..I… aghhhhh…”

    BQ- “Oh dear..He seems to have fainted..never mind..Here’s desert island discs with James Dreyfus..”

    I think the electricity generation announcement contains enough ambiguities in it to cover a multitude of possibilities.

There seems to be an opening for gas, in that they’ve called for backup for renewables – not sure that’s wise long-term, given the international uncertainty over forwad prices, and our increasing dependence on imports. The loser seems to be coal, because Carbon-Capture-And-Storage is a non-starter as things stand (and is pretty unlikely ever to be a starter).

    Leaks can be dangerous, and compromise good people trying to do their best. I feel that we lose too many good ministers that way.. I am a red but Gove is a likeable enough fella.

Blunkett was basically a decent man, and he came a cropper. Its a sad affair really. The UK has some of the highest quality ministers and we force them out on rumours.

Whether the cost is paid by the consumer or part-funded by the taxpayer is a political decision, and given that many ‘vulnerable’ consumers have part of their fuel costs paid through the benefits system, taking the load off the taxpayer is arguably sensible.

    I’d import unemployed Northerners to run on treadmills to cater with peak demand. Suspending a black pudding just out of reach works wonders.

    We could always get the gas we need for power generation, as opposed to domestic use, from coal. I’m not sure if the green lobby would wear it though.

    Leaks are usually bron because of a disgruntled employee. Question: why might an employee be disgruntled? I don’t have the answer, but by nature it makes me less likely to trust what they have to say…..

    If you had to give a reference on your CV, would you give your ex-partner? Again, I do not know the answer> My hunch is that you might prefer to pick someone who is batting for your side…

    My point: leakers have an axe to grind. From a personal perspective, it makes me treat them with caution. Also, the results of their leaking can be devastating. It causes me upset to see someone’s life ruined in that manner…

    ST says:

    Hmm, well the cost of just about everything will steadily rise as demand is starting to catch up with supply, especially if you put barriers in the way such as not using coal. Food, energy, and anything which involves chemicals (that is to say everything).

    What’s interesting for me as a chemist is that we’re going back to the old papers to see how they did it 50-80 years ago before petrochemicals displaced other sources of feedstock chemicals. Most of us are now finding we’re back doing fairly old fashioned research, that is to say reinventing ways to make basic synthetic chemicals or crop fertilizers which is a bit of a shock given that the field since the mid 1960’s moved away from that into very blue sky areas.

    My girlfriend is a chemist as at a major chemical company and she is engaged in finding and assessing alternative sources for various chemicals other than petroleum. The problem is biological sources invariable have batch to batch inconsistencies and are therefore difficult to use.

    Now if we could use coal as a source, well that would be a different matter. But, for now, we’re being pushed down the route of seeing what we can squeeze out of a compost heap.

    You’re a bit behind the times, Cynical Old Bag. At Cancun they were calling it Global Climate Disruption. The disciples of Al Gore are falling over themselves trying to explain the Arctic conditions currently upon us instead of the Sahara -like heat they forecast would be the norm.

    The Moonbats are trying to convince us that every type of weather event is the result of too much CO2 in the atmosphere.

    He and Tracey and their little pals get enough head-hurts trying to suss the Green Book, let alone hard stuff like the 1971 Immigration Act.
    They’ll be so frit of grown-ups like the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants showing them up for silly billies again that your extrapolation could have real appeal.

    Cynical Old Man says:

    All these computer models are the result of bad science.

    It may be a long time ago, but I remember whenever we conducted experiments in the school science lab we always had to have a control experiment to check against.

    We only have one Earth. If they conducted their experiments properly they would have to have at least four Earth’s, including one control. One Earth to pump full of CO2, One Earth to pump full of Methane, One Earth to pump full of a mixture of both gases and one Earth to leave alone to see if the temperatures would change on their own. Basic good scientific practice.

    The fact they cannot do this means that most of their findings are based on guesswork which equals bad science. In fact it’s not science at all, it’s propaganda.

    I didn’t like Bono’s involvement in plans to bash about Georgian Dublin in order to create some modernistic hotel for plutocrats. Those plans cropped up during the boom before the euro got sick, of course.

    “What is so wrong with a country just being, and wanting to remain, a bloody country – looking after itself, respecting it’s history, culture and wanting to repel undesirables from it’s borders?”

    It doesn’t fit the into the Socialist Dystopia that the Reds are trying to bring about.
    To paraphrase a certain Austrian chocolate box painter.
    One (multi-cultural) People

    And thousands of Gulags for the dissenters.

    Yes. Thank you Susie, absolutely right.

    I think that when the public realise the extent of the stupidity planned by Huhne & co the AGW scam will lose the passive acceptance of several million more Brits. No matter how complicated they make the carbon tax appear to be, these regressive bills will hit people’s doormats and AGW scepticism will soar.

    Which mainstream politicians will be first to break ranks to capitalise on this discontent? The libertarian tories? Old Labour?

    …Oh and Animal, can you think of any other ways to improve energy efficiency other than hiking bills by 40%? Please try.. after all the scarcest resource is money and the most precious is freedom.

    Global Warming Mong says:

    The cold weather is caused by warm weather, which is caused by global cooling, which is in fact caused by global warming which is caused by four wheel drives, flushing toilets and Sony playstations. It can be cured by giving vast amounts of public money to professional whingers, bent scientists, data fiddlers and the owners of those windmills. the ones which do not work in winter becuase they are covered in snow and there is no wind in winter anyway.

    That’s the beauty of global warming – eeeeeasy money courtesy of the incompetent shits in parliament!!

    “It isn’t clear why he was allowed the dignity to “resign” instead of being sacked outright”

    It’s got nothing to do with trying to give people dignity when you ask them to “resign”, it’s purely to protect yourself legally/financially.

    If you sack someone then you have to have enough evidence to be able to prove things in court.

    If you have enough evidence to know yourself for a fact that they’re guilty (eg you saw them do it), but for some reason not enough evidence (or it’s not admissable) to prove it in court, then you really have no option but to ask them to “resign”, otherwise they’ll take you to the cleaners for unfair dismissal.

    When someone gets fired for something like gross negligence or something similar, then it’ll kill their whole future career; you need to have the evidence to backup the sacking so that you can avoid a potentially massive compensation claim against you.

    Remember that witnesses can lie and can’t be the only evidence for a successful case. If the only witness was the employer then the case will never stand up in court and the person who was fired would get compensated.

    Unless you have a dozen independent witnesses, a paper trail, video/camera footage, and electronic proof/logs, then you can’t really fire someone.

    I can’t remember the last time someone was actually fired (rather than being forced to resign), it’s extremely rare. Usually only happens in situations where someone’s punched their boss in front of 100 clients, or where someone got their todger out while standing on their desk in front of 100 people.

    It isn’t clear why he was allowed the dignity to “resign” instead of being sacked outright…

    Could it be the samereason he managed to keep his job last May? Which leads us to a far more interesting question: “What dirt does he have and upon whom?”

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.”
