Fox: “Why Don’t You Just Say What You Mean, Kevan?”

Labour’s Chris Bryant did his part to muddy the waters around Liam Fox this morning by tweeting: “I’m perplexed by this smear and innuendo about ‘smears and innuendo’.” An infinite loop of smear and innuendo…

There is a rumour doing the rounds that the Guardian have been sitting on some rather saucy details about Werritty and Fox since last Thursday, with the editor believing that Fox’s position is untenable without the need for the full picture being disclosed. In the mean time the rest of the media seem to be trying rather hard to get a message out there…

Sky News defence correspondent Niall Paterson said in a live broadcast that the Defence Secretary is “not normal”. He later sent a tweet presumably in an attempt at clarification claiming “’twas in the context of making clear that secs of state don’t usually bring their pals on trips”. Quite.

The Mail have a bit of a mixed message. Political Editor James Chapman has gone on the attack, implying that Labour are playing dirty:

“Last night, for instance, Labour’s defence spokesman Kevan Jones, responding to Dr Fox’s apology, declared: ‘This is a man in denial.’ Why don’t you just say what you mean, Kevan?”

Yet his Mail colleague Peter McKay has gone the furthest of any hack yet, pushing the same idea as Kevan Jones:

“There is a final, delicate reason why Cameron and Co might have shied away from dealing with Fox’s private and public association with Werritty. Although Fox has denied rumours that he is gay, his friendship with Werritty seems to go beyond what many might consider is normal in male friendships. But the more-inclusive-than-thou Cameron would instinctively steer clear of querying it.”

“Querying”, eh?

    Its about time we adopted the high level of democratic standards seen in Venezuela

    “The recall mechanism was introduced into Venezuelan law in 1999 under the new Constitution drafted by the National Constituent Assembly and sanctioned by the electorate in a referendum. Venezuela’s implementation of recall allows the elected head of state to be subject to it. This was most clearly demonstrated when President Chavez had to fight a recall election on 15 August 2004. Despite opposition allegations of fraud, President Chavez survived with close to 60% of the vote.”

    Even f***ing Chavez has more backbone than this lot.

    Who gives a toss what he gets up to in his bedroom.

    The thing about fox is that he was taking a friend who was not a member of the govt on ministerial trips and allowing that friend to use the minister’s contacts to further his business interests. To exacerbate matters further liamfox has been found to be a shareholder in werrity’s business.

    It’s unethical, its unprofessional its unacceptable and he must resign.

    Kevan Jones is the Labour MP for North Durham.

    Born in Nottinghamshire in 1964, son of a miner, he went to comprehensive school in Worksop and graduated in government and public policy at Newcastle Polytechnic and put down strong roots in the North East.

    Kevan was parliamentary assistant to Nick Brown MP for four years, then political officer for the GMB, rising to be regional organiser and finally senior national organiser in 1999.”

    David Blunkett was forced to resign over similar allegations.
    He tried to tough it out, and almost succeeded.

    But once the revelations that he was failing to register his many interests that would benefit form government contracts kept coming, even Teflon said he must go. The main charge was,

    Blunkett’s political opponents claimed that a conflict of interest was created by him having been director of and holding shares in a company proposing to bid for government contracts to provide paternity tests to the Child Support Agency – part of the Department for Work and Pensions, of which he was Secretary of State.

    The good news for Liam is that this was Blunkett’s second resignation.

    The ruling seems to be this.

    Labour – 1st offence – nothing
    2nd offence – apology {possibly pay some money back, wave a cheque, cry in parliament}
    3rd offence -resignation for three or four weeks.
    4th offence – – resignation for a year or two. Top job in EU in the meantime.
    5th offence – out.

    Tory and lib/dem is the same except 1+2+3 may all be treated as 4, even for a first offence.

    fox allowed werrity , who had no govt connection, to go on his ministerial trips and use the ministers contacts to make profits for his company. fox was a shareholder in werrity’s company so was also making profits out of werrity’s unethical activities.

    yes fox has been a good minister of defence, our first for years, and it is a tragedy this has happened. But it smells to high heaven and any honorable minister would have resigned by now. No-one is indispensible and they’ll find another good minister of defence, but fox must go!

    Surely it must be illegal? (not the arse-banditry but the being a shareholder in your ‘mates’ firm and then taking him away on taxpayers money to further his business interests)

    Five years I’d have thought it should be.

    Stating the obvious here, but this whole business only makes sense if Werritty is Fox’s long-term homosexual lover. It seems here like we have another ‘Law’ situation, in that there might not actually have been no real harm (breach of procedures etc.) done, but the more Fox hides this from the public the more he unnecessarily ‘incriminates’ himself. Or maybe he is both corrupt and a homosexual?

    Tom Baldwin's Liebour Ajax supplier says:

    Pretty sad to see that Liebour rats on the sinking liebour ship attempt to magic some lifeboats out of thin air by starting up a witch Hunt/Ed Silly Band wagon to Out Liam Fox.

    Ironic when you think that he is the only Defence Secretary in the last 15 years to help win a war, but when compared to one of his predecessors, Mr Corrupt himself, dodgy money bags himself the Right Honorable Geoff Hoon MP, a man who made the mafia look like angelic teletubbies, that this witch hunt just smacks of desperation.

    yet stone the crows, out down from his Holy than thou perch should come Mr Honest, Chris Bryant, a man who has dealt with his own many witch Hunts, either over his underpants, outing as being gay, flipping his houses expenses scandal which the tax payer funded or hacking….a so called man you thought would be a bit more humble when seeing another person going through such stuff…….

    alas no…..Chris Bryant MP picked up the lighted torch and his pitch fork and decided to join the lefty mob in its witch hunt of another MP, well, with less evidence than they sent our brave troops on an illegal war….which by the way we couldnt win with that muppet Hoon/Liebour in charge!

    Bryant, like Hoon…just a sad pathetic little man with a chip on his shoulder….a chip paid for and flipped by the public!

    Politics, an ironic and dirty business….especially to those who should no better.

    Hoon, Bryant, SillyBand and Liebour…..Karma…what Goes around comes around…so watch your backs!

    Sorry nell, you don’t seem up to speed on what politics is for. The whole point of being in it is to help your mates and yourself to as much dosh as possible, even better if you can have shares in or be a ‘consultant’ for some of the companies you are handing out government (that’s your money) out to.

    It’s a wonderful system but only open to the ‘right sort’ of people. Don’t worry their track record over the last 30 years should put your mind at ease that given enough time they’ll fuck up the place to such an extent that they can just walk away with their cash and the rest of us can get on hunting for turnips in the EU (German) owned fields. Not long now I’d say.

    Kevan Jones is a fine one to accuse Fox of being in denial. When a Newcastle counciller he was widely thought to be a shirt lifting turd burglar with a keen interest in musical theatre but never admitted it. He was a spiteful little shit then as well.

    It looks like Fox is half out of the closet. This is from his own web site:

    “he served as Shadow Secretary of State for Heath before being appointed Co-Chairman of the Party”

    There is a rumour doing the rounds that the Guardian have been sitting on some rather saucy details about Werritty and Fox since last Thursday, with the editor believing that Fox’s position is untenable without the need for the full picture being disclosed.

    Alternatively we are watching one of those glorious moments where the Graun’s editor finds himself in a position to well and truly put the boot into one of the Thatcher-worshipping, baby-eating spawn-of-Satan but can’t because to do so would require him to abandon his right on, pc credentials.

    My guess is the editor is waiting for one of the “naughty boys” to open the closet door at which point he can join in the mass vilification believing himself to have clean hands.

    I couldn’t give a fig what his sexuality is… Lets step away from that for a second:

    Extra marital affairs are considered ‘bad’ for politicians, whatever form they may take. Again, don’t really care about this. Shouldn’t really be a career ender.

    Dragging your partner along on taxpayer funded trips is par for the course. Extra marital partner a little more naughty. But probably not career ending. The way I see it – whether partner or extra marital partner, the taxpayer picks up the same costs…

    Letting them masquarade as an ‘offical’ to hock their business interests is very naughty!

    Having shares in said business interests is downright crooked.

    That’s what I’m pissed off about. The crux of it is whether he knew what his friend was doing?

    There’s the added dimension that being embarassed about being ‘secretly gay’ whilst a married minister of the crown is a security risk. It does leave you open to blackmail…

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
