Cuts to Labour Uncut

Siôn Simon’s Labour Uncut blog had two exclusives from Alistair Darling’s forthcoming new memoir. Both of which got a lot of follow-on from the media, and both of which appear to have been cut from the website today. Presumably this is under pressure from the publishers who have sold the exclusive extracts to the Sunday Times.

There is speculation that this leak could cost Darling a lot of money in lost serialisation fees. Guido has republished the cut bits of Labour Uncut here. Just trying to be helpful…

UPDATE: Labour Uncut confirm the cuts were made after threats from the publishers.

          David Laws Lib Dem fiddler says:

          Rather than give Sir Fred a golden pension, why did he not sack him? Afraid of what he might say?? Labour tossers.

          Darling could have changed the system. Blair, Brown and Balls changed the banking system which worked perfectly well until it was changed in 1998 following Clinton’s move. Clinton wanted sponsorship from banks to get elected and changed the Glass and Steagle system, in exchange for sponsorship, that was in place since Rosevelt changed it after the Wall Street crash in 1929. Greedy power mad politicians have wreaked havoc on the public’s finances and standard of living for their own self indulgent ends.

          Politicians allowed the bankers to cause the current mess. All should be held to account. Mervyn King and the likes should be no exception, he should have acted in the national and public’s interest. No golden pension for him either, he should be sacked.

          All the politicians who left the Treasury are entitled to £20,000- why FFS? Darling and Byrne got their payment tax free. An absolute scandal. Even Laws was entitled to it after a few weeks in office, but did not claim it. He should be investigated for false accounting- still waiting for some leadership to instil integrity in politics Clegg.

            60-70 bn bail out for the retail banks that were bust, so what.

            Government debt 7 trillion. 100 times bigger.

            No wonder politicians want to talk about the banks.

          • The Observer says:

            Don’t forget that Clinton also opened up Freddy Mack and Fanny Mae so that anyone could get a mortage (he was after votes as Labour was with immigration) and the banks crashed into this in a hell of a way.
            Now look at the mess in housing in the USA.

          Cameroon. Stated at Mansion House SPEECH. He would not be drawn into fighting on 2 fronts as Bliar did in Afghanistan and Iraq. So he now has opened up another Front in Libya. Needs to get a new Script Writer, and tell his Cabinet to STOP telling the Public this is the Biggest PEACE TIME DEFICIT. BOMB TAX Destroying our economy. NATO still Bombing Libya.

            Seems to have been quite successful bombing though.

          • F—sakes I would expect it to be, You have the Worlds largest and most sophisticated Military Machine NATO bombing Libya into the Dark ages. We did the same in IRAQ. Last Month internal attacks in IRAQ up 60%. The outcome may not be what is intended we shall have to wait and see.

          • Sungei Patani says:

            The object of the bombing in Libya was to stop Gadaffi massacring his own people. He did not after the bombing started, hence mission accomplished.

            Iraq has nothing to do with it.

Work it out. This is not 260 million pounds as we were told. A figure of 15 billion pounds seems more likely and that is just the cost of missiles.

    Does anyone really know what is happening out there?
    I have two questions:

    Where are the photos or other evidence of the captured? Gaddafi troops.

    Where are the women of Libya? Amongst all the over exuberant jubilations in tripoli I see not one woman. Are they already returning to religious intolerance of the middle ages?

      very reasonable questions but will not be treated as such here – there are far too many tribal tories – do you know the tory party is innocent …. of everything ….?

      Do we have any missiles left? Perhaps they were just coming to the end of their use by date?

      Possibly more telling is that the clearly amateur rabble in their toyota pick-ups that we are used to seeing on TV have suddenly given way to obviously trained troops in uniform with body armour tooled up with tanks, field artllery, rocket launchers etc.
      Wonder where they were hiding? Or did Gaddaffi’s chaps just change sides?

        Have you seen the large number of apparently new SLR L1A2 rifles now being used. Presumably given to them by our government while simultaneously arming our own troops with the ineffective SA80 peashooter.

    On R4′s ‘Boys from the Blackstuff’ retrospective this morning, Sue MacGregor said to Alan Bleasdale that the true genesis of the drama was the Labour party of the 70s. ‘Oh, I’m not going to blame the Labour party for anything’ he replied, ‘er, if you were a working class person in the streets of Liverpool reading the Guardian er, you were aware something terrible was going to happen’.

    You have to laugh. Maybe he meant if you were a working class playwright or poet. Maybe all Liverpudlian working class people are playwrights or poets.

      Reminds me of the classic Peter Cook sketch on the radio from about that time, outraged working class father hangs his head in shame in the community because son refuses to become a poet and is determined to work down the pit when he leaves school.

    Is it true Sion Simon porked Stephanie Flanders? That demonstrates shocking taste and poor judgement on her part.

    Sir William Waad says:

    Darling is really a very minor figure, an unsuccesful solicitor who found himself catapulted into a very senior position that he could not fill. He wasn’t expected to fill it, in fact – he was to be a patsy for Brown and Balls, who could take the blame if things went wrong.

    OMG – Sion Simon my former local MP. He was replaced by Harriet’s husband all the way from London to Birmingham (how did that happen on women’s only short list).

    Sion Simon – this bloke wants to be elected mayor of Birmingham.
    Most people in Birmingham I think do not him or any elected mayor.

    Sungei Patani says:

    Whatever has the school she went to got to do with opinions on terrorism? Because I went to both grammar and comprehensive schools does that make me more or less able to comment on topics of the day?

    In fact Eliza Manningham-Buller makes a very valid point that Tony Blair, supported by the Labour Party, caused an increase of Islam militancy both in the UK and overseas as a result of his criminal invasion of Iraq.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
