The Truth Shall Set You free

Vince is whining that “…somebody who isn’t a constituent falsifies their name and address and comes in with a hidden microphone – it completely undermines the whole basis on which you operate as a local MP.” Does it really undermine the operation of an MP? If you are duplicitously two-faced, saying different things to different people it will undermine your standard operational procedure – lying.

As with Wikileaks people may have reservations about the manner in which the truth comes out, but one thing Guido is certain about: it is better that we the people know the truth. The political class treats voters like children who need to be shielded from the truth for their own good, making high-minded Platonic claims to “noble lies” when in reality they are too afraid of the personal consequences of living in truth. The truth will set us free…

UPDATE : Guido ran a survey when the Telegraph story came out asking, Could Cable Bring Down the Coalition? 4,217 politically savvy readers were polled, a whopping 89.85% said “No” and only 7.9% reckoned he could.

Methinks Cable is a bit vain in thinking he could bring down the government…

    Indeed, Mr Fawkes. Some say “Oh, now MPs won’t be candid with their constituents now” but the underlying assertion is that they’re being frank with their constituents but lying to the greater public, which is hardly desirable.

    Damn right.
    Politics these days is about telling enough half-truths, outright lies and misdirections to enough people to get their votes every few years.
    If we could follow these politicos around and record everything they say when they are trying to sell themselves to people, then make it all public, then the only ones who would survive would be the ones who are actually consistent.

    I agree with you entirely Guido, unless it concerns my privacy. Why haven’t you printed a retraction of all the terrible things you printed about me, now that I have been found entirely innocent of sexually molesting my ‘sexy princess,’ after all, I only visited her many times in her home, took her to dinner in The Houses of Commons and bought her a teddy bear. I am sure you will agree with the Hampshire Police and the CPS that my approach to my constituents is ‘entirely holistic,’ (I don’t know what ‘holistic’ means, but it sounds good, and the Press fell for it.) I am now going round to give her a ‘wet one.’

    Statement by David Cameron Regarding Afghanistan says:

    I would just like to make it quite clear I totally agree with Gordon Brown’s comments that the war in Afghanistan has made the streets of Britain safe.

    Since we illegally invaded Afghanistan and started bombing Afghan weddings and torturing people and murdering those dangerous Afghan shepherds we have not been attacked by a single shepherd from Afghanistan so there’s your fucking proof you peacenik wankers. Another benefit that has been derived from us assisting the American war criminals is that before we invaded the country the Taliban had shut down the heroin trade in the country but in the last nine years Afghanistan has become the number one heroin producer in the world so our occupation is getting results!

    Now all the junkies in Britain and Europe and America will be benefiting from cheap Afghan heroin this Christmas thanks to the number one heroin dealers in the world, the CIA.

    How do you like that you anti-war movement pussies?

    Unlike the rest of the country we licked your back bottom in a frenzy of misplaced Parliamentary unity in matters regarding war, took your words hook, line and sinker and were completely wrong too.

    You won’t find us admitting that though. We’re just as dishonest and thoroughly duplicitous in the whole sordid affair as Labour were.

    We deserve to be shot quite frankly.

    The Watcher says:

    This is what evidences the truth that representative democracy is a farce. True democracy would be reflected in the restoration of capital punishment, deportation of foreign scumbags, closure of our borders and leaving the EU. If you want a new year resolution Mr Fawkes, destroy the party system as they are all part of the same leprous diseased whole. Until and unless independent men and women stand for office the opposition will be confined to the splenetic and visceral hatred expressed on blogs.

    Public servants should have to right to secrecy from the public, at least with regard to their public duties. Conversely the public should have right to privacy from the state.

    Cable and much of the political class here seem to hold (or practice) precisely the opposite views.

    “Everything here is great…I feel like I am in’s true time really does fly in prison”

    Don’t spin the old line about post occupation being the driver of opium production. You’ll find in 1999 the Taliban grew and processed about 4,500 tonnes of the stuff.

    The only reduction came about when Mohammed Omar was bribed by the UN to declare that opium cultivation was un-islamic.

    Unsworth says:

    No mention by Cable of his Declaration of War on Rupert, of course. And he seems to think that his volunteering this information to the two giggling girlies is somehow their fault, that all his constituents are likely to enter his surgery with concealed tape-recorders etc. One wonders what else he has been saying to date. Does he have the slightest recollection of similar boasts and indiscretions – and to whom they were said or (highly unlikely, given his character) was this a one-off?

    I’m not impressed by Cable – never have been. His latest attempt to shift the focus is piss-poor. As has been said by many others, the confidentiality of such discussions is to protect constituents, not to save MPs’ embarrassment. Cable should have been a bit cleverer than that, but his customary stupidity and overweening arrogance have once again led to his downfall. Nobody in their right minds will view anything he says or does with anything but massive scepticism – and that ain’t going to go away. He’s permanently damaged goods from this point forward – I’m very pleased to say.

    Rupert has a massive diverse international fortune. He could piss all over Cable if he chooses, but, as before, he probably doesn’t think it worth spending too much time on trivialities such as this. The world has moved on, Cable is now impotent, the Telegraph Group is exposed, and the decision lies in the hands of others. Result all round.

    And so it should be. I fiddled my expenses, got caught and just paid them back. I have also been paying my wife £20K a year as an ‘occasional case worker’ and she has never done any case work and can’t even spell, she is even more uneducated than me, if that is possible. Must go; off to the Ukraine, Russia and Romania to interview a few children about their welfare and find a replacement for Katya. Merry Christmas and a happy new year mugs.

    I love the way Santa delivers GameBoys and XBoxes and iPods to children in the rich nations, but leaves the kiddies in the 3rd World to rot and starve.

    Not even a bowl of rice for them. Very Christian.

    How very Guardian of you.

    Make the most of this festive season. If there’s a snap election next year and Labour get in, they’ll probably ban it so as not to offend muslims who provide their helpful postal votes. As a side note, I find it a rather delicious irony that the majority of staff at supermarkets are muslims. I always enjoy going to the till with pork and alcohol products that they have to handle!

    Rupert Murdoch 3 and laughing at Tommy Sheridan who is likely 4-5 years in Barlinnie, Vince Cable demoted and the BBC looking like Pravda. Socialism is getting a much needed kick up the Jacksy.

    The rest of us in work have to put up with “mystery shoppers”, intrusive management surveillance, audits, checks, checks on the checkers…..
    you won’t get many peoples sympathy…..

    And as for those wingeing about IPSA…….everyone else in the public sector can only claim for “reasonable” and “justifiable” expenses supported by a receipt……

    Stop bleating and start putting up with the same shit the rest of us have – the joke is that you implemented it on the rest of us !!!

    Have you actually read “The Truth Will Set You Free” by David Icke? Compared to Vince Fable it’s another level of fucked up- (C)Fable can’t come close- he is a washed up reminant of what the LibDens used to think they were before they became a human shield but at least he doesn’t believe in the lizard people!

    I love the coalition- for the first time in 13 years shit is running the way I think it should. Long live the intelligentsia born of 1982-1986. None can ever cone to being the children if Thatchsr in the way that we uniquely are/ beautiful

    Irrespetive of the lie propagated by ddd, Vinnie the Cable-knit kid should have remembered the statement in the Bible that says “What is whispered in secret will be shououted from the rooftops”.

    Paul Marks says:

    “Uncle Vince” Cable does not like the truth, that he was going to allow his personal hatred of a particular businessman to determine a judgement of whether or not this businessman was going to be allowed to buy a company he himself created, to come out.

    It is always the way – “you used underhand tactics to reveal that I was ……..” to try and draw attention away from the nasty stuff that has been exposed.

    However, the broader point remains – policitians (nor administrators, or judges, or other government folk) should not have the power to do these things. Whether a person sells shares or not should be up to them and the person trying to buy them – it is naught to do with government.

    There is nothing “scientific” about “competition policy” or “anti trust law” it is the arbitrary will of politicains, bureaucrats and judges (for the court based system of “anti trust law” is at least as bad as our “competititon policy”).

    The whole thing is a nonsense and should be got rid of, regardless of whether the person in charge is the corrupt, hate filled, Uncle Vince Cable – or a saint.

    By the way – Uncle Vince (even after being expossed as the utter degenerate he is) is still in government. What does that say about David Cameron?

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Cable isn’t “a bit vain in thinking he could bring down the government.”
    Cable is vain.

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.”
