Labour’s Leaky Civil Service Mole Now a Spinner

Newly married James Forsyth has some further information about yesterday’s rubbish Guardian rehash about taxpayers’ money going to the Free Schools Network. He points out:

“Gove’s office has been acutely aware of how many people in Whitehall can read their emails since they found out that a secretary to Gove’s advisers with access to their computers was applying for jobs with Labour MPs. As soon as the senior civil servants in the department found out that this secretary was trying to get hired by the Labour party, they instantly moved him out of the job that he was doing — aware of what a conflict of interest it was.”

Forsyth doesn’t name names, but Guido isn’t so prudish. Take a bow Matt Gillespie who left the Department of Education to go spin for John Denham the Shadow Business Secretary. It seems Gillespie, who isn’t answering his mobile, was still loyal to Balls. 

As Forsyth points out, Gillespie’s, now hidden, Twitter feed was a storm of pro-Labour bile, even when Gillespie was meant to be an impartial civil servant:

And it seems he’s mates with Balls’s lackey Alex Belardinelli. He’s clearly learnt from the masters of the dark arts…

    Alas you are right Billy

    The New Labour vs Conservative panto is just that, a show….or even a charade for the masses.

    Ever since Labour ditched clause iv there has not been any political alternative for britain. Many on here bandy the the socialist around, but exactly how can New Labour be construed as socialist when it renounced clasue iv (i.e. the ownership of the means of production).

    I just cannot understand why Red Ed is called Red Ed, i don’t remember him putting the reinstatement of clause iv at the top of NLabour’s agenda. Maybe it’s because he is a libertarian, just as Dave and George are libertarians i.e pro-democract/freedom in order to promote the free markets on all other nations….beacuaes that’s waht’s good for business and profits.

    Call them necons aka anarchists (i.e. deregulation for the markets). They are all extreme right wing in fact. Milton Friedmanites.

    That’s what the REAL politics is ALL about. Don’t be taken in bu the HoP charades

    Lady (spit on floor) Shirley Porter the Cohen woman: while leader of Westminster City Council she oversaw the “Building Stable Communities” policy, later described as the “homes for votes” scandal and was consequently accused of gerrymandering. The policy was judged illegal by the district auditor, and a surcharge of £27m levied on her in 1996.[3] This was later raised to £42 million with interest and costs. She eventually settled in 2004, paying a full payment of £12.3 million.[4] She moved to Israel in 1994 during the inquiry, and lived there until 2006.[5]

    It was a sunny day in August and Leaky Mole was feeling VERY pleased with himself. As he looked in the mirror, he puffed out his little furry cheeks, blinked his tiny eyes and wiggled his whiskery nose. He sang a little Mole Song to himself:

    “Gove and Co are foo-ools
    With their silly schoo-ools
    I broke all their roo-ools
    They’re a bunch of too-ools”

    Leaky Mole was thinking of the little saw and Moley Knife he kept for making these with, which were very very blunt!

    Then Leaky Mole packed a spare hanky and some nice worm sandwiches in his little bag and went hoppity, hoppity hop all the way down Whitehall to see Denham, the scarecrow. But then, Whoosh! Parp! Splat! He was run over by a taxi.

    The libertarians don’t really care if a large chunk of the populus are working or not. Remember, they are pro-FREE markets, they are, by definition anarchists i.e. they are deregulators, they want the markets (and more importantly big finanace completely DEREGULATED…..BECAUSE, that is the the fatstest way to EASY profits.

    EVEN THOSE WHO ARE DEPENDANT ON THE STATE have to spend their benefits at Tesco/Sainbury/Asda (great choise eh!).

    It’s why the libertarians (aka the cosmopolitan tribe) are all for increased immigration, more people means more consumers, which means MORE PROFITS. Immigartaion has significantly accelerated under call-me-Dave’s tenure.

    It has nothing to do with socialism, it’s all just a shell game.

    I knew Matt Gillespie quite well when he was at Queen’s University Belfast doing English. Knew he was interested in parliament (he did a stint with the Democrats in Congress), but didn’t realise he worked in Westminster now.

    Nice chap, but definitely to the political left (he regularly fawned over Democrat and Labour figures). Sadly, as I recall, he started sacrificing his university work for a political career long before he graduated. Perhaps if he’d applied himself there a bit more, he would have left with a stronger sense of ethical conduct. Disappointing, but not that surprising.

    Who are we?

    The second world war comprised of the capitalists (US & GB capitalists) against the national socialists (the third reich. It was a war of ideologies not a war of nations.

    Which tribe are pro free-market fundamentalism i.e. pro business. In the early parts of the c20th, there were large influxes of immigrants into New York who didn’t very much like the way they were treated in central Europe. They saw national socialsim as hostile to their ways and their kind.

    The cosmpolitans get very upset when they are affronted.

    Responsible department: Department for Work and Pensions

    The government needs to stop paying people child associated benefits once they have had two children. Not only do more tax credits have to be paid, more child benefits but also housing benefits, NHS costs for birth and through life, education costs etc etc. Stopping benefits after 2 children will make people think more carefully about having large families and their huge tangible and intangible burden on the state. They will no longer be incentivised to have a lot of children, get more benefits and never work. More worringly this culture is passed onto the children and they adopt the same approach until it becomes totally unsustainable.

    Liberal-Democracies operate by the rule of law where the laws protect businesses and individual human freedoms. If the law doesn’t explicitly proscribe behaviours, then they are legal. Morality doesn’t come into it, as it is illegal to infringe people’s Human Rights etc. I don’t think many people fully understand this. That’s how the system works. It abuses people’s naivety and lack of understanding of the political system they live under. Some, of course, say that’s precisely what’s good about it. People can make free choices they say. That’s why such (right-wing libertarian) people don’t like the empirical evidence about the true nature of diversity where many people function like grown up children and need protection by the state because of how they are physically made.

    statist says:

    At the end of the c19th and early years of the c20th Britain opened its doors to asylum seekers fleeing persecution in Eastern Europe. What Britain didn’t seem to appreciate is that amidst those asylum seekers were anarchists who were feeling not persecution, but justified antagonism towards their anti-statist subversive behaviour. Some of those migrants moved on to NYC. In 1917 elements of this same group were used by the German High command to get Russia off their Eastern front by toppling the Tsar. Others were used by Britain, according to Lloyd George, to destabilise the Middle East, and thus make things difficult for the Ottoman Empire, an ally of Germany. In later decades, anarchism became free-market libertarianism which is anti-statist. This is why we have such a weak Public Sector. The anger today is because a clever minority use other less able groups to further erode their economic competition. For decades after WWII, Britain built up its welfare state through hard work and austerity. The ‘liberalism’ of the 60s was in fact subversion. After all, the kids hadn’t paid for the state, their parents had. It’s been down-hill ever since, with Thatcher’s mob (Keith Joseph playing the the Grey Cardinal) promoting anarchism as freedom/individualism, whilst casting the USSR etc as evil (Saachi etc PR). It was of course quite the reverse in reality. The USSR, like China today, put people before self-interest, duty before rights, i.e responsibility before narcissism.

  235. 235
    statist says:

    This has all been about encouraging markets, i.e. uncritical (sub-prime) consumerism, and it’s been right-wing (i.e free-market libertarian, aka anarchistic) political correctness which has tried to stifle discussion of this, because airing it is deemed bad for the markets (consumerism).

  236. 236
    statist says:

    I remind you, libertarians are anarchistic i.e. right-wing, not left-wing, regardless of what they call themselves. Most people are politically illiterate these days, even (especially?) those who go to ‘university’!

    Do you understand politically what liberal-democracy is in practice? It is anarchism, i.e. deregulation, where the free-market determines value, not state planning. This is not he same as anarchy. Anarchism has to be planned (hence one of Von Mises’ books ‘Planned Chaos’.) Have a look into The Austrian School. The Mises website will do, or just look up libertarianism. German National Socialism and Soviet Socialism in One County under Stalin were essentially the same anti-anarchistic political system from Von Mises’ and the Austrian School’s perspective. Anarchism is the opposite of statism, the latter being vilified as ‘The Road to Serfdom’ (Hayek). Anarchism is what the UK has ‘enjoyed’ since at least 1979, and it’s what the USA exports as ‘freedom/democracy’. The Cold War was essentially a battle between statistism and anarchism, and it still continues today, just more subtly given the inconceivability of MAD. It’s why the Middle East (which is still essentially a satellite of the SCO) refers to the USA as ‘The Great Satan’, Israel being ‘The Little Satan’, sometimes these are cynically reversed. Terrorism may be seen as a response to the imperialism of anarchism.

    Not so much a dosser, as someone who had long since decided to put a political career above anything else. He was very conscientious when it came to his work with various links with the Democrats and in the Union (QUB SU being no different from most in its heavily left-leaning composition).

    It comes as no surprise that he ended up starry-eyed and in love with Ed Balls. It’s just a shame that he chose Balls as his role-model, because when I knew him, he was actually a really decent guy. Just goes to show what professional politics does to people I guess.

The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
