Tories Come After Labour Leaker

Last week Guido outed Labour’s mole in the Department of Education who was leaking to his old boss Ed Balls. Well the Tories are coming after Matt Gillespie, who now spins for John Denham the Shadow Business Secretary. Backbencher Chris Skidmore is flying a kite a little writing to Sir David Bell, the DofE Permanent Secretary, but it’s awkward none the less:

He’s also going after Denham’s office:

You never know what might fall out of the tree. A protege of Ed Balls and his Muttley like SpAd Alex Belardinelli, who knows what else Gillespie was up to…

      Why do all socialists think that the rules don’t apply to them?

      Let alone “spirit” or “convention”, or even the law.

      Because they think they are right, and everyone else is wrong, why let little things like that get in the way of their moral crusade to regulate and micro-manage everyone’s lives.

    A rather new ed at PMQs , he slowly rose on his tributes , peering above the parrapet , oh dear Dave still had loaded cannon for him , none the less a new approach being developed by the opposition .Ed balls on Adam Bolton was a bit of a slippery affair , as we have become accoustomed to with Ed , the speed of his evasions is quite deceptive as it makes him look as though his spin its of the utmost urgency , I liked the bit when Adam asked if he would cut child maintence …… Nurse Dorries even made Nick Clegg laugh , and Daves response to Huw Anchara Davies was pure skill.

    The health bill was quite interesting , and got quite legal and Mr Lansleys team were much more confident this time , I think I understand his ideas a little better now and can see why the changes may do some good , i have just heard one story in a labour constituancey that is utterly toe curling and fraudulent in how it currently works , I wonder perhaps if the brand hasnt been adrift from reality for some time in some aspects under labour , so over time it will be interesting if he can develope the service much better under a British run and owned model ,despite its political complexity , and ensure labour come to regret some of the moral sapping poison they have put out.

            Like those 1200 people at Stafford Hospital where there is a public enquiry taking place that no fucker is taking any notice of?

            Yesterday the odius Andy Burnham took the stand and in true Labour tradition explained that none of this had anything to do with him or his party.

            He was asked why he gave these killers ‘foundation status’ on the basis of 4 lines of information that he had been given. But of course he was only ‘following guidelines’ So hypocritical Andy set himself a different level of scrutiny than Labour expects from James Murdoch when it comes to ‘signing things off’. What was that about ‘wilful blindness’, Andy?

            Oh! and of course, Burnham denies claims that he was made aware of a range of problems at the trust

            And as for the deaths? This started in Stafford, he says. It was down to the Trust, the hospital managers, the medical staff. Of course it had nothing whatsoever to do with Labour’s target driven micro management culture.

            And then, outrageously, Burnam claims that he was ‘amazed’ that there was not more noise from the community about what was going on up there. But of course, the good people of Stafford are fair game now, in the same way as NI, they having also turned their back on Labour and voted Tory at the last GE.

            So there you have it according to Burman (and by Ben Bradshaw today) it follows that the people of Stafford got what they deserved. It was their fault.

            What scumbags these people are. They must account for their negligence and for their slur on ordinary people who were frightened of making complaints against the machine.

            And to all of those wreckers, those deniers (another Labour trait) who would frustrate the reforms that are necessary, look no further than Stafford to see why the NHS must change.

            For the life of me I do not understand why the media, the twiterati et al are largely silent on the enquiry into this outrage.
