POLL : Permanently Marred?

As the anger grows over Andrew Marr’s audacity at paying to hide his own public interest story, while being paid to probe the lives of the rest of the political class, Guido thought he would gauge opinion:

Don’t forget we pay him £600,000 a year for the pleasure. No wonder he could afford the luxury of an injunction and to support a child that wasn’t even his.

          Typical BBC Lie Spreader. BBC should be privatised, we do not want to pay the licence fee it is another tax. If it was commercialised it could pay its presenters, executives diversity watch dogs etc whatever it wanted or go bust.

          We do not want to be in the EU at a cost of £9.2 billion per year, the increase in contribution is more than we are saving by the dreaded cuts. Economic madness. Add the over seas aid and it beggars belief what the govt is up to. Do they really have any concept how to run a household budget let alone one for the country??

          Hislop good? He’s a sh*t.

          I can’t believe apparently intelligent people are concerned about this. Of all the bad journalistic behaviour they focus on this. Who cares if he IS a hypocrite?? Are you telling me All other journos are pure as the driven snow, and that’s why they are allowed to ask questions? Rubbish!

          What matters is the job he does, not his personal life, which is irrelevant

          Marr has probably been treated like crap before this case was even discovered and crowed about by so many spiteful writers.

          Bad call, Guido

          • HappyUK says:

            Marr just a hypocrite? He’s a wanker.

            “What matters is the job he does, not his personal life, which is irrelevant”

            It is COMPLETELY relevant when he is probing the shortcomings, personal or otherwise, of others. How can complain about injunctions when he takes one out himself? Unbelievable arrogance!

            For this pompous oaf to take out a super-injunction while so openly carping about the failings others, the original sexual misdemenour pales into insignificance.

          • not now Kato says:

            Bollox – good call Guido.

            Marr’s a wealthy socialist twat and his hypocrisy, in a number of matters, is vile and contemptuous.

            Sack the fucker, then you won’t have to whinge about his job.

      Speaking of the odious wife, I unearthed this wonderful comment posted by Prodicus on CIF some time ago (courtesy of Devils Kitchen).

      “You need to broaden your dinner-party list, Jackie. Include some of the people you patronise, you overpaid, arrogant, insulting, blinkered, out-of-touch, know-nothing-actually, socialist, collaborating, casually-vicious, pathetic, crap-scribbling producer of utter fucking arse-gravy.

          You are correct Nemo but remember this the Conservatives rightly paid a heavy price for such deplorable behaviour. Some even went to Jail.
          The difference today is that those who engage in similar or worse behaviour whilst in public office seek and obtain the protection of our courts. This is a disgraceful state of affairs.

    Secondly, labour is a shambles and there aren’t many of us out here who care whether they are offended.

    Thirdly he forgets that the last time bliar tried to appear in the UK in public he nearly got lynched by the antiwar brigade; and he forgets that the majority of the UK regard the ex unelected pm gordon as responsible for our economic collapse because of his economic illiteracy and profligate spending not to mention his sneering egotistical attitude to the public that everyone other than him is a bigot.

    nicholas campbell says:

    Surely the reputation of Ms. Miles ( who apparently still can’t be named in the papers ) is shredded. Here she was taking money for child support from a man who only ‘might’ have been the father of her child, of course it depends on the number of lovers she enjoyed liaisons with, but apparently Marr took only one look at the child and began to doubt if he was the father—which suggests either that la Miles is duplicitous and deceiving or, for a journalist, worryingly unobservant. Cannot Marr now sue her for return of no doubt substantial sums of money, which would neccesitate Miles actually naming the father–rumoured to be a senior Labour insider ( was Miles using Marr’s naivety to protect the actual father. Marr is exposed as a useful idiot, but Miles, well who would employ such a conniving woman).
    The BBC is accountable to the public in that it must reveal if they helped Marr with his legal fees. Also the BBC must investigate and reveal its links, however tenuous, to al Quada via employees at the World Service. What a shoddy, disgusting organisation the BBC is. Nearly all the superinjunctions involve BBC staff or contributors ( except for the odd sportsman): their extra marital affairs are being funded by the licence payer. Well at least Long Lost Family is back on tv tomorrow night. Keep your distance Davina !

      Hugh Janus says:

      And so did the rest of us. It would have been a ‘no’ vote from me even without his confession yesterday because his lefty tendencies have been on full display for so long now. I did watch his little programme once, but it soon became abundantly clear that he is not an objective and unbiased interviewer. In the world of political interviewing he is a complete lightweight, and certainly not worth even a fraction of what we are paying him. He is therefore a perfect choice for the BBC.

    the last quango in paris says:

    The poor little girl. Surely everyone knows that if you want journalists to ignore a story you make as little fuss as possible? By ‘blocking’ a story from journalists you ensure they chip away to find out what was so important that it needed a super-injunction in the first place. What do they find here? A journalist who should have known better, so desperate to protect his privacy after wrong doing he shells out a vast sum of money – and the victim?

    If Marr had let it all out at the beginning – he would have saved a lot of money and this story would be filed under ‘so what?’ – more importantly the little girl involved would presumably have far less stories to read when she is older.

      IF it was taken out to protect the child, which I very much doubt but let’s play along, then you can see that Andy boy might think that after paying 7 years of maintenance and a shitload of legal fees to protect a kid who wasn’t even his own, he had more than done his bit – and that mummy, or real daddy dearest, might want to take the strain.

      Of course, Andy is morally far better placed than whoever the real father is. And the mother come to that. They appear to have conspired to play Andrew Marr like a fiddle. Both would have known that Marr was possibly not the father from day one, and both decided to keep their gobs shut. If the father turns out to be an impoverished market stall holder from Shephards Bush then you could excuse him for letting the rich TV bloke provide for his child in ways that he never could. If the guilty party is a political heavyweight then he stands condemned thrice over and should be cast into the political outer darkness forever for his moral turpitude, with the CSA and Andrew Marr’s lawyers in hot pursuit.

      If it were to turn out to be Ed Balls, then it would be a sweet, sweet moment…

    We’re just nine days away from our first – quite possibly only – national referendum on how we vote, and things are evenly matched.

    Opinion on the street is volatile, but we know two things:

    •The more people understand what AV is – the more likely they are to say Yes.
    •Turnout will be lower than General Elections; the campaign that does a better job of ensuring its supporters go to the polls, wins.
    So our task is clear: explain why AV is better than FPTP to as many people as possible, inspire them to vote, and we will win.

        Our village copper came, incidentally born and bred in the village, and one of the questions is if you have any arms in the house. I showed him some of my collection of Japanese swords and gave him a demonstration. He told me they were only interested in shooters, but he was suitably impressed, as are many of the ‘robust’ policemem that work in the neighbouring countries. A Samurai hippy borders on the acceptable over here.

        Pleased with his reaction I thought that I would test the waters a bit further and explained in graphic detail the moment that I gave up pacifism, after 6 months in London. I told him how I found myself gripping a cheeky Londoner by the throat with one hand as I slapped him around the face with the other hand.

    As for Marr, get over yourself Guido and the right wing frothers here. Marr is a decent journalist, excellent presenter and the BBC is great value for money. So what if he spunked up Miles’ snatch, I would given half the chance. She is a bit hypocritical wanting to protect her child.She was happy to write all about her while taking a free holiday c/o The Times and a hotel wanting a free plug.

    Fucking Huhne.

    As much as I admire his work, I feel he has really shit in his own nest with his coming out of the injunction closet. The Beeb could find him another job….perhaps interviewing injunctionairs….The Injunction show.

    Who is the other dude with Miles and Marr?
    Could he be the father?

      Andrew Marr is employed to give an unbiased political opinion. If he lied to his own wife about the affair then sought to hush it up, just how much can he be trusted?

      People expect people in public life to have some integrity; Marr has shown that he has none.

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”

Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
