FT v Gove Sparks Twitter Flame War

In the Westminster Village the battle between the FT’s education correspondent and Gove has been providing much amusement. As is the way nowadays the battle has gone all handbags-at-dawn and spilled over onto Twitter:

Chris Cook, himself a former CCHQ political adviser on education to David Willets and now the FT’s education correspondent, alleges that the SpAds around Gove are using their private email accounts to conduct government business off the record and away from prying FoIs. They say they are required to do this by the Code of Conduct for SpAds which requires them to

not use official resources for party political activity

Cook argues that private emails should be subject to FoIs and has got a barrister to support his position (with substantial caveats rendering it unlikely). This unsurprisingly hasn’t been jumped on by Labour because it is unrealistic and Guido would be FoIing, from 2 years back, EdBalls@Labour.org.uk in the blinky of an eye.

Cook has complained to CCHQ, the Cabinet Office, the DfE and Downing Street that the counter-attack is disproportionate and he has been defamed. The FT is apparently going to complain in writing on his behalf that the big boys have been horrid to him. Cook further claims that Gove’s SpAds should be fired for making ad hominem attacks on him in contravention of their Code of Conduct which explicitly prohibits

the preparation or dissemination of inappropriate material or personal attacks… Any special adviser ever found to be disseminating inappropriate material will automatically be dismissed by their appointing Minister.

As far as Guido can tell there is no evidence that Gove’s SpAds have made any personal attacks on him. The Twitter account is run by CCHQ not the DfE…

    Re the Ed Balls angle on this.

    It is claimed in the Daily Mail that Ed Balls wanted Gordon to keep Mcbride on.

    I was under the impression that Ed did not know “Mr Mcbride”, so if he did not know him why would he try and save his job?

    Re Gove

    Sounds like the Education dept needs a deep clean

      The department has loads of labour devotees trying to derail any inititiave to reflect badly on the coalition
      Here in Birmingham the LEA has just commenced rail-roading through Labour policy in primary schools that was abandoned in march 2011 by the coalition supported by the teachers,unions etc
      Any point voting if the entire civil service thinks voting and thinking Labour is “the right thing to do”

            A number of us have always wondered whether B’Liar’s knowledge and contacts from his former office have been used or contributed to his personal gain and whether any true robust inquiry/investigation has been made to make sure he has not abused his position or knowledge from being PM of the UK. Peter Oborne looks at this issue on Monday.

            B’Lair needs to be investigated properly for impeachment and war crimes arising from Iraq. Also formal judicial inquires into the Iraq war and Dr Kelly’s death would help the public’s confidence in politics.

      “It’s here year after year that Israel is unjustly singled out for condemnation. It’s singled out for condemnation more often than all the nations of the world combined. Twenty-one out of the 27 General Assembly resolutions condemn Israel — the one true democracy in the Middle East. Well, this is an unfortunate part of the U.N. institution. It’s the — the theater of the absurd. It doesn’t only cast Israel as the villain; it often casts real villains in leading roles: Gadhafi’s Libya chaired the U.N. Commission on Human Rights; Saddam’s Iraq headed the U.N. Committee on Disarmament. You might say: That’s the past. Well, here’s what’s happening now — right now, today. Hezbollah-controlled Lebanon now presides over the U.N. Security Council. This means, in effect, that a terror organization presides over the body entrusted with guaranteeing the world’s security. You couldn’t make this thing up.”

            … or their state is just v.v. angry.

            More seriously, unless something does happen, Israel will just keep on building settlements in occupied territory.
            The land was occupied in 1967.
            In 2047, the youngest Arab who actually owned and lived on the land before occupation will be over 90.
            By then, there will be 3-4 generations of Israeli settlers living there.

            Which claim to some patch of lemon trees will you consider the stronger
            – someone whose granddad farmed them
            – someone who lives there, works there, and so does their dad, granddad and entire extended family and all their attendant community.

            Israel has no interest in a peace deal except on their terms. In any other case, they will just carry on building settlements and let the clock wind down on the Palestinians.

            This is what we have seen since camp David.

            Those of you looking for peace need to understand that outside of a solution imposed externally, it will just not happen as the Israelis get 100% of what they want if they just hang on.

The Arabs have deliberately created and then kept the so called Palestinian refugees in horrible circumstances solely in order to use them as a weapon against Israel because the Muslim Arabs are racist haters of all Jews and do not want them to have a state anywhere, let alone in Israel.

          The Arabs could have solved the Palestinian refugee problem easily at any time that they wanted to, especially with their vast oil wealth, but instead they chose to use that money to mount a long term campaign to demonise Israel and ignored their so called Arab Brothers in the camps and Gaza and the West Bank.

      World Health Service (formerly known as the NHS)= ????£billions

      Please do not tell us there is not any money to educate our children, look after our pensioners in old age, pay more tax and we have to work longer because inept politicians cannot add up or run a household budget, but attended the PPE courses at Oxbridge.

        The reason there is so much waste in this country is because we are so rich. If we were a poor struggling country, these political vainglorious projects would not be started in the first place. There is no accountability because the political elite and the bureaucracy are well aware that they are both totally incompetent. They both depend on each other’s patronage and fear each other at the same time. No politician dare offend the bureaucracy as they would withdraw support and make the politicians look even more incompetent. By the same token, no bureaucrat dare offend the political elite, as no patronage would be forthcoming; peerages, knighthoods, CBE’s etc. If the mutual support was not there, the whole incompetent, self serving system would collapse. Add to the mix the Freemasons, who are powerfully involved in it all, and you will begin to understand, why I and many others have survived for so long. Boaz.

    The word Bollocks is banned as it sounds a bit sexist. It will be replaced with meaty vag flaps. Now where did I leave my strap on?

    Article about McDoom in the Daily Mail…

    ‘As political events moved on, he craved the power to release statements.
    And in the few speeches he delivered, he found it hard to curb his tendency to make policy announcements.
    ‘You’re not Prime Minister any more,’ he had to be reminded regularly.
    What’s more, unlike Tony Blair and his high-earning wife Cherie, he had to face the fact that he and Sarah had significant debts’

    That’s exactly the trouble with these Hunts, Blair included; they know how to rack up debts personally as well as ‘professionally’ in their capacities as political ‘leaders’. The Hunts have no leadership in their bones, they are charlatans; if they had any leadership qualities they would have been in business/industry creating real wealth and VALUE! I detest them all, the feckin’ wasters!!

    Why in the name of christ are we even talking about this misfit leading an English Parliament on whatsoever.
    This economic liability is a scottish tosser who thinks he can sort out the countries problems.
    My advice to Gordoom is that he should p–s of out of politics and to consider why he was an abject and utter failure.

    I see the so called financial experts are now preparing to let Greece default on it’s debts !
    What the fuck did they expect ?
    All those billions of pounds thrown at an economy that never had a chance of paying it back ,not once but twice
    This little jolly for these incompetent twats in Brussels has gone on long enough
    now they have decided to make the banks take a 50% hit on the money they have given to Greece , which in turn will put the French banks in serious trouble
    which means that the EU will come up with a great plan to throw shit loads of cash at these banks
    So Call me fuckin useless will be there yet again at the front of the queue waving the British tax payers cheque book to throw yet more of our “Recovery Money” at a problem that has nothing to do with us !

    I will vote for anyone who wants to get us out of the EU
    but not the lying bastard “Bean faced twat Cameron !

Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann on Cameron’s refusal to pay the £1.7 billion EU bill by December 1st:

“Well, then he’s gonna pay on December 2nd”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
