Flashback – Jan’ 08 : The Story You Won’t Get From Them

Remember this one from January 2008. The shock and horror was quite a sight to see:

With Andrew Marr currently topping the Twitter trends in the UK, that well known Yes2AV campaigner with a superinunction must have shaky hands today while they are stuffing envelopes.

      Guido. You should be ashamed bothering yourself with such trivia when Bonkers Johnson is planning a football team based on his little bastards. Its just like the good old days of “back to basics” – Yo-yo Yeo, Portillo and the strange case of Eastleigh, the better use of Chelsea shirts, to say nothing of a hot curry every so often. All we need now is for you to print the truth about the Natalie Rowe files. Why do I think not…..

          Not a bad idea, except for the time, knowledge and motivation needed. Like 95% of Joe Public I rely on the media including blogs for my info. If Guido claims to be outing wrongs why is so much missing that can be found elsewhere?

            Guido cant cover everything, thats why if everyone does thier own little bit then that completes the whole picture


          • Engineer says:

            Are you expecting Guido to publish everything about everything? Are you not prepared to look elsewhere as well?

          I don’t know what you mean by ‘Portillo and the strange case of Eastleigh’ . . . I know that the unfortunate Stephen Milligan was the MP for Eastleigh, Huhne is the current MP for Eastleigh, Ian Duncan Smith once got the PPC for Eastleigh, Conor Burns, to initiate some sort of petition amongst other PPCs (or maybe it was MEPs, I can’t remember) against Michael Portillo . . . and lastly that Portillo gave a talk at a place called ‘The Point’ in Eastleigh in 2007. There, my knowledge of all things to do with Eastleigh ends, so please enlighten me.

        It’s worse than you think. Football is an oik’s game, so Boris is unlikely to be trying to raise a team. It’s either rugby (a gentleman’s game, with added attractions of well-brought up violence), or even the Wall Game, which requires teams of about 30 a side.

        Cripes! Watch out SW6 Sloane Rangers. Boris is on a mission, and he’s got you in his sights. Lie back and think of England…

      misterned says:

      I believe that labour’s favourite phrase from those times was “let’s draw a line under it and move on”. meaning “we fucked up BIG TIME, but don’t want to talk about it.”

      Which is completely different to their behaviour with regards to the phone hacking story init?

      Even with Ed Miliband actively sucking Murdoch’s cock last week to beg the sun to back labour again, they are still not letting that hacking “scandal” lie.


      • 105

        Actually it usually meant: “Okay, we’ve been caught doing something corrupt/treacherous/criminal, but let’s ignore that and get the BBC to show this picture showing how great we are.”

    No wonder Marr hated bloggers: “A lot of bloggers seem to be socially inadequate, pimpled, single, slightly seedy, bald, cauliflower-nosed young men sitting in their mother’s basements and ranting.

    Scared they publish his dirty little secret ? Did the BBC know – did they pay for the injunction ?

    Why did it take him so long to find out? Was it the lack of massive ears, lack of a massive ego and lefty verbal diarrhoea as the years went by or did it take three years to get on the Jeremy Kyle Show?

    Penfold says:

    It seems to be a given, that those within the political machine regularly suppress the dissemination of news stories that may embarrass a politico, or fellow hacks. It all seems to follow the old MAD policy (Mutally assured destruction).
    Whilst this very pal-ship is all well and good and ensures that their is a mutual two way exchange of stories and information, it stinks.
    It sucks and stinks as it is used for personal gain. We see Marr abusing the system to protect himself, and his fellow hacks falling over to abase themselves from dobbing a fellow hack. Equally on the other side of the game, the lobby hacks censured themselves and cheated the public by not reporting on charlie Kennedy’s alcoholism.

    They are all scum and come the revolution will get their comeuppance.

    Buy lamp-posts and hemp rope.

      EvilPhilanthropist says:

      It seems that by digging up this article from 2008, Guido is disproving his own argument. Marr’s affair was not reported because of a super-injunction, not because of some Westminster/Media hush job to protect one of their own. Now that it has been lifted, the BBC, Guardian and Times are all reporting it, not ignoring it as you would foolishly have predicted.

    Sicko says:

    Given the Guardian’s historical difficulties with spelling, I’m left uncertain whether ‘censored’ in this quotation from the linked article is supposed to be ‘censured’ or not:

    “Tory MP Louise Bagshawe was censored after dropped a hint at the identity of a married Premier League footballer…”

    ‘After dropped’ suggests slovenly editing, rather than a comment on our beloved secrecy laws, though..

    Backwoodsman says:

    Re-reading Fawkes’s original story, the thing that stands out is the incredibly poor political judgement of two of the three involved, which should be sufficient grounds for dismissal from any reputable concern.
    The third one should be offered counselling by the HR Dept, on ‘how to spot a wrong ‘un.’

She has since sought comfort in the arms of fellow crack addict ——- —–, who is still a suspect in his last mistress’s murder.

    Also in the news, Pippa the Giant Panda has had twins. Andrew Marr has refused to comment.

      Kevin T says:

      Same reason many in Labour are against it, because they’re afraid they’ll lose seats to the smaller parties. The LibDems are in favour of it because they think they’ll gain seats. Milliband is for it because he has a cool £3 mill with William Hill, at 85/1 odds, that the Labour party will have ceased to exist by 2010. Now his leadership strategy begins to make sense!


  36. 108

    “Let’s not forget that Alice Miles is the trollop who gave birth to the bastard of that jug-eared fuckstick Andrew Marr.”

        It appears you are the one who has missed my point. I was not commenting on the rights and wrongs of super-injunctions, or the need for a privacy bill or, as most commenters here seem to be doing, mouthing-off with sub-Littlejohn rage. I was merely pointing out that the idea of media omerta around this story (which Fawkes’ original post was about) does not stand up to any logical examination.


  39. 122
    Sir William Waad says:

    I can see that a ‘contra mundum’ gagging order mean you’re not allowed to write about something and that you’re not allowed to write about the injunction, but are you allowed to write about writing about the injunction?

    Or could you, for instance, write something along the lines of:

    The injunctor, whose name does not begin with H, loves humbugs;
    The injunction does not concern financial dishonesty but does concern a woman of childbearing age; and
    The postman, who shaves with a cut-throat razor, went to Tenerife for his last holiday.

    Ian Hislop, who did so much to expose Andrew Marr’s hypocrisy, implied on the Today show this morning that the BBC had funded Narr’s legal fees in obtaining the injunction. Is it possible to find out if the license fee payer did pay for this super injunction ? That would be a disgrace of course and Marr should be made to refund the money.
