Labour Shadow Minister Says Murdoch Worse than Gaddafi

One day back in Westminster and the gaffes begin. Diane Abbott thinks Tony Blair overseeing the extraordinary rendition of terror suspects and cutting a deal with the murderous Gaddafi regime isn’t as bad as the fact he is godfather to one of Murdoch’s kids:

Guido would like to know how many of her Labour colleagues agree…

    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    Order of the OTT

    genghiz the kahn says:

    Somehow she won’t be holidaying on the beach at Bengazi.

  3. 3
    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    Hang on Guido, Murdoch employs thousends worldwide has led the revolution insports broadcasting in this country and others and contributes to society, Gaddaffi has slaughtered his own people at will and hugged Tony Blair.

    She seemed happy enough with Blair when he was winning elections for her.

  5. 5
    Moo says:

    Stupid fat cow

  6. 6
    Loungelizard says:

    Labour and the BBC feel Murdoch is all about Coulson and therefore will damage the Tories so in there eyes it’s bound to be worse than anything the Mad Dog did on Blair’s behalf.

  7. 7
    The BBC says:

    Murdoch/NI are a threat to our left wing ideology and must be stopped!

  8. 8
    Chris Jones says:

    No witty comment here. She’s an idiot. That is all.

  9. 9
    Tax Payer says:

    But….Jack said there was no rendition?

    Surely, he wasn’t lying?

  10. 10
    the BBC and The Guardian says:

    Clearly Murdoch is far worse than Gadaffi.

  11. 11
    Vince Cable's secret offshore account says:

    If you turn against Labour this is what you get. Labour are truly poisonous.

  12. 12
    Fubar Saunders says:


    Not half as stupid as the brain donors who continue to vote for this aberration of a “politician”…. Unbefuckinglievable that constituents could be quite so stupid.

    Then again…

  13. 13
    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    She is a Shadow minster? for what? Sumo suits?

  14. 14
    Tax Payer says:

    And she laughed about Libya/rendition??

    They don’t even pretend to be normal human beings, now.

  15. 15
    Steve Miliband says:

    She casts a massive shadow wherever she goes

  16. 16
    Yeah, right says:

    Tis true, but her very presence on the Labour front bench is reassuring. It reminds the electorate that a vote for Labour means than Abbott and her like will be running the country.

    Give her all the air time she wants.

    Fucking unbelievable…

    Dianne Abbott Fan Club says:

    She obvioulsy means the guy on the big boat that did not float good. Jim Cameron made a movie about it with the finance coming from Murdoch

    She isnt even worth a tit wank anymore
    Once upon a time even gayer Michael Portillo would have given her one
    Now she is just a fat drab saggy hypocritical whore

    She’s Ed’s shadow minister for obesity (among other tings).


    It’s all beyond irony.

    MrAngry61 says:


    Connections with a news proprietor – after leaving Politics – is worse than rendition.

    The left are vermin. And Abbot is Queen Rat.

  23. 23
    Penfold says:

    FFS what planet is Abbott on, or what medication has she been taking.

    The choice of evil/good here is a classic reminder to us all of the dysfunctional and disconnected Labour party that must never be allowed to lie its way into power again.

    I despair, but take courage that it is Abbott, not the brightest penny……..

    blu* 34 says:

    she has her own postcode and beeps when she walks backwards

  25. 25
    Sir William Waad says:

    She might argue that cosying up to Gadaffi was necessary, as a matter if diplomacy, whereas cosying up to Murdoch was voluntary, as a matter of personal advancement.

  26. 26
    Penfold says:

    Just remember the constituency, there not the brightest or cleverest and probably had a missin gpostal vote.

    IMO something worse than being pally with Murdoch is sending your children to public school whilst publicly advocating sych schools’ abolition.

  30. 30
    Marcs Aurelius says:

    Diane Abbott is a priceless national treasure and the Conservatives should take very good care of her. She should be on the TV every night sounding off about all kinds of topics.

    Anyone remember her great reaction to Finnish nurses coming to work in Hackney? “What would fair haired blue-eyed people know about us?”. Perfect long may she live!

    I’d have more respect for Blair if he was honest about both. Or indeed anything.

  32. 32
    Stinkfinger says:

    Gaddafi was the pin up dictator loved by the left.
    He backed communist terror groups and the IRA as well as having a go at the Great Satan,America.
    Plus he surrounded himself with young ‘lovelies’ like all good socialists do.

  33. 33
    Johann Hari says:

    Johann Hari gave me a wink, like a silver coffee spoon glinting in a cup of Blue Mountain Lignum Vitae Roast. Indeed, to me he was like a mountain, a towering genius, the furthest peaks of his intellect spied faintly and afar. Then he laughed, a laugh like rain on the roof of the Royal Greenhouse in the Palace of the Emperors in Meh’d-Itupp. “Johann”, he said, “you can ignore what Whittam-Strobes may say, estimable fellow though he be. I was there. I saw it all. It was not the snake that tempted Eve. It was Rupert Murdoch. But for him, we would all be in Paradise today. I warned the Big Man Upstairs, but would he listen?”

    It was my turn to laugh. “Johann, in all our conversations together I’ve never known him to take advice!”

  34. 34
    the last quango in paris says:

    Let us remember she ran to be party leader and therefore contemplated being PM and she has no brain………

    The more Labour bleat on about the Murdochs the more I like the Murdochs – they work hard and are successful – good on them! Why are Labour not bothered about other papers?

    Talk about sour grapes – The Sun say they wont support Brown and look what LAbour do! Fair paly to The Sun given what we read about the man – he should not have been doing the job.

    Why is the BBC trying to blame the Tories for the rendition and torture MI6 took part in when in fact it was the two Scottish homosexuals who ran Liebore for 13 years who are to blame?

    Not suprised says:

    Why is this woman given air time?

    Her record from They Work for us is “average” and let’s not forget she had failed to declare earnings of £17,300 on the Register of Members’ Interests which had been received for appearances on the television programme This Week.

    She had to apologize to The House.

    If I failed to declare £17300 income HMRC would string me up!

  49. 49
    misterned says:

    They have to paint Murdoch as being worse than Gaddafi. Cameron never sucked up to Gaddafi, and has played a leading role in the global effort to overthrow Gaddafi. Whereas, just like Blair and Brown, Cameron has sucked up to Murdoch.

    So Murdoch is worse, purely because they can attack Cameron over links to Murdoch.

    However both Brown and Blair were closer to Murdoch AND Gaddafi, than Cameron ever was.

    The evil, terrorist supporting, corruption of the labour years is leaking out thick and fast now.

    Learning a lot about moral relativism in and from certain high profile quarters these days.

    Guess that makes them worth so much more to the media that offer them safe, lucrative haven to say and do one thing as others are decried by the same odious collaborative bed sharing collective.

  54. 54

    I think you will find that Tony only ever just helped out when they needed an extra hand and Gordon was just too bitter, twisted and ugly to even get a fuck from a poof

    Not PC says:

    She is trying to paint Labour out as being whiter than white. Labour think they have made gains by attacking Murdoch. Lets wait and see what happens when Hackgate is over. Murdoch will not forget especially when the whole of the press is as equally as guilty as he is yet theytappear to be out of range on Labour’s moral radar. The Mirror will get off lightly with it being a Labour rag.

    Backwoodsman says:

    Well, not entirely, never having mentioned the screws from one month to the next, this paper, which represents about 1% of NI, became the fount of all evil to the bbc for commercial reasons. Their primary interest was in stopping the b sky b takeover – damaging Cameron was just a handy bit of colateral damage.
    They had to do some pretty selective one eyed reporting over the links of the freelance investigators with other papers ( Miror Group anyone), and deal with some pretty discredited politicians ( Underpants briant, bully boy watson FFS !), but hey, gotta do what you gotta do, to keep the old socialist orthodoxy on dem airwaves.

    Come on it’s pretty clear that Murdoch is far more monstrous than Gadhaffi. All brother leader did was throw a few hand grenades into prisons full of captured rebels and a bit of torture and stuff.

    He was never involved in hacking into celebrity voice mails.

    Where’s your sense of proportion?

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.”
