Gobby Out of the Lobby

Paul Waugh has the full story, but it seems the BBC’s roving fixer Paul Lambert, affectionately named Gobby for his polite and considerate questioning style, has had his parliamentary pass removed after he chased the Murdoch pie tosser through the estate, filming him in cuffs.

As if the Commons authorities and security didn’t humiliate themselves enough in front of the world’s media, now they are trying to pass the buck. Instead of kicking out hacks for broadcasting their embarrassing failings, perhaps the men in tights should be pointing fingers at their own ranks. Maybe they didn’t want Gobby shouting “Are you going to resign Serjeant at Arms…?”

    Good one mong down 20,000 more at the BBC to go. Why did the media film this twat? If they all agreed not to film these stunts or give them publicity then they wouldn’t do it.

    If this guy had run onto a football pitch and slapped a pie in the face of Wayne Rooney the media wouldn’t have shown it, so why some leftie mong?

    Back in the Commons, Don Foster, the Lib Dem MP, has just finished speaking. He said that James Murdoch said in his 2009 MacTaggart lecture: “The only reliable, durable, and perpetual guarantor of independence is profit.” Foster said he profoundly disagreed.

    The MacTaggart speech is worth reading. According to Isabel Oakeshott in the Sunday Times (paywall) at the weekend, the speech had a significant effect on Brown’s relations with the Murdochs.

    It was a stringent critique of the BBC and Ofcom, the media regulator. Brown hated every word.

    Inside Downing Street, he pored over the text, line by line. “I can’t overstate how important that speech was,” said a former Labour strategist who was with Brown at the time. “It changed everything. He saw it as very rightwing and a direct attack on what we were doing. He felt the Murdochs didn’t share any of our values.”

    As you say, Billy, an 80-year old man who has been badly let down doesn’t deserve this sort of rough treatment from lefty scum, just because they have hard evidence. Endgame for James, of course, but he never did do much for shareholder value, so he ought to do the decent thing and take the rap.

    Well this is where the confusion is……

    The Beeb should be there because as the state broadcaster they should be transmitting the workings of our democracy out for all of us in the provinces to see. No biased analysis, no smarmy put downs, or whatever just camera in room and off we go.

    But the Beeb are really there as you suggest because they have an agenda which means biased analysis, smarmy put downs, etc. etc.

We also accept that MPs have been resolute in their efforts to correct things. We remain in charge and will seek results that are pleasing to us. in the meantime, despite the internal problems at Westminster, the problems with the economy, the problems within the Eurozone, the increasing poverty in this country due to the increase in unemployment, the total lack of any jobs strategy and the new premiership season due to start we are all going on our holidays for four months so can somebody kindly hold the fort until we come back

    We need a Tory who will do something about the budget, stop the 72% EU contribution in the last year, no more EU laws for the UK, stop immigration, proper defence strategy, stop overseas aid, change welfare benefit system, cut public spending, Cameron’s piss poor performance today lacked total credibility and only matches his piss poor performance over the last year with the Lie Dumbs. no wonder corruption is still rife in parliament when people like Cameron do nothing to bring about change or lead by example.

    Interesting that the man who caused this furore for the officers of parliament is a jonathon may-bowles, grammar school educated of middle class quaker parents.

    More interestingly he is a founder of ukuncut, labour member and is closely associated with the graudian who gave him a top ten award for his ‘comedy’.

    Though it doesn’t seem that too many other people rate his comedic talents very highly.

    militwit I suppose is patting himself on the head for his hysterical outbursts provoking this unfortimate young man to such stupid behaviour.

    jonniemarbles parents have my profound sympathy.

    Exacatly, David Cameron couldn’t win a fucking majority against Gordon Disaster Brown when the public where no longer buying his bullshit and giving Labour all time record low poll showings.

    The idiots at large on this site are well and truly showing how thick they are if they think the Cameron has a chance with the public next election after all this.

    They though he was a cock then, they think he’s an even bigger one now and are bored off all this shit dragging on when they want to get back to watching X Factor and living out their mundane lives in their little bubbles without too much Real Politiks being forced onto them.

    No. You are mere media fodder who can’t look beyond the end of a tin of shaving foam. Look at the clear evidence from the eye witness report that this was not a spontaneous lone operator, but a carefully set up op. Common sense would tell you anyway that a scruff would not get so close to Murdoch in the middle of the hearing, unless it was arranged with staff etc.

    And why did the tv transmission have a strategically placed white blob to obscure the lapel insignia of the pc plod who chased after Marblees?
    To prevent i d of his number perhaps? Hmmm.

    We all knew this as he correctly stated that the BBC wanted to take over the full media spectrum.
    The BBC’s borrowing of hundreds of millions of Euros from the ECB for its “commercial interests” underlined this ambition of Thompson.
    NOTHING has been done to curtail this ambition and that Hong Kong fellah is still dawdling in the wings.

    The proximity of the names MacTaggart and Oakeshott, in the same post, takes me back to the chance encounter of the same names in the previous century.

    John (JME) McTaggart (1866 – 1925) was a notable Idealist philosopher and, together with Russell and Moore, the three were known as “The Mad Tea-Party of Trinity”. He became increasingly conservative, it is sometimes claimed as a result of studying Hegel. MacTaggart later turned against Russell and actually took part in the latter’s expulsion from Cambridge.

    Michael Oakeshott (1901 – 1990) was one of the most conservative of philosophers of the last century, despite (or maybe because of!) his father being a member of the Fabian Society, and was hugely influenced by MacTaggart. Oakeshott declined a knighthood proposed by Margaret Thatcher, which at least shows the respect that she held him in.

    Oakeshott died without issue. Unfortunately, I have been unable to discover any links in either of these two family names.

    Yes, right. Let’s bring back the incompetents who nearly bankrupted the country and let them finish the job. And who exactly do you think will suffer when that happens? The rich? Gordon Brown, Balls and Cooper, and all the other hypocritical troughing MP’s?

    It’s claimed at the higher rate and paid to the majority of patients in ‘Special Hospitals’ throughout Britain, if you were a ‘normal’ punter in hospital the Disability Living Allowance (not Invalidity Benefit) would be stopped. Still it’s good to know that these lovely people can watch their LCD tellies and build up a big bank account at your expense, assuming you are a taxpayer. Sucks doesn’t it!

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.”
