Fox in Burglary Admission

Despite the fact that the investigation into his activities is now directly hindering his job as Defence Secretary, Liam Fox is still fighting. Instead of giving press conferences in Paris, he is up this morning with new tactics. His old campaign manager Chris Grayling was on the the Today program saying “I think we’ve got past the point in politics where we needed to worry about people’s private lives.” This is true unless those private and public lives are tangled and blurred in such a way as this.

Fox has clearly briefed Nick Robinson who pushes the victim of a hate campaign idea. The line of Werritty seems to be:

” …when Werritty handed out business cards claiming to be an adviser to Mr Fox that was pretty close to the truth. In government, just as he had in opposition, he wanted to talk to someone who thought like he did, who could ask the questions he would, who was on his side.”

No harm in that, but the problem for Fox is that this was being funded by Tory donors, off the books, with no accountability, no restraint and no one beside Fox have the faintest idea what this man was doing.

Elsewhere the side story is gaining traction. The Sun forced a statement out of Fox late last night after they revealed that Tory spinners had kept quiet that a “younger man”, not Werritty, was staying with Fox the night he was burgled in 2010. The Mail also questions why Fox was tail-ending his official trips with extra nights spent with Werritty:

Still no smoking gun, but Fox can’t be far off death from a thousand cuts.

    “I anticipate Ed Miliband leading on this at PMQ’s and once again getting the better of David Cameron”

    Jess The Dog says:

    The innuendo about Fox’s sexuality is probably coming from the Left, rather than the Right, motivated by Fox’s past hostility to gay rights evidenced by his voting record. I don’t care about what Fox gets up to in his personal life, but it is completely inappropriate to include his friend in MoD business, especially when his friend has an extensive record of consultancy, including US industry.

    When Nimrod R1 reaches the end of its operation life, we are buying the aging US Rivet Joint ELINT spyplane. When ASTOR/Sentinel is scrapped under SDSR, will we be lend-leasing JSTARS? Nimrod MRA4 has been scrapped….will the RAF be using the P3 Orion? How much will US industry benefit? How much will Werritty trouser in consultancy fees? Does his ongoing consultancy retainer cover procurement intelligence? I doubt Werritty and his master are running down UK Defence for US military-industrial complex, but these questions will be asked all the time.

    Forget a Civil Service inquiry. Werritty should be interviewed by the Security Service as a matter of urgency. In past decades he would have been seen as the security threat that he is, even with the Establishment’s tolerance towards personal indiscretions.

    I still think this is grossly overblown.

    Misleading the press (esp the Sun) is hardly a serious matter – the press mislead us all the time.

    Why should the public know every detail of who a minister talks to? We don’t expect this of business leaders. Ministers need friends they can trust. It seems that Werritty was funded by “Atlantic Bridge” and although this may not have been a 100% valid Charity there was still no mystery about the donors to it AFAIK.

    The Politicians must realise that when you have had almost all of your responsibilities, laws and decisions taken over by Europe there are only personal things left to discuss, the best thing to do is for the politicians to get out of Europe and only select good honest decent people to represent them and then our political parties can run this country for the benefit of the British people.

    I can’t fo better than this quote:

    “Werrity is the sort of name Dickens would come up with. Magwitch and Werrity, dealers in hooves and glue, perhaps. Fox is too obvious a tag for an ambitious politician; Dickens would have used a derivative of vulpine. Wulpine, possibly. Werrity and Wulpine, then, dealers in hooves and glue, with a stinking yard in Bow from which the rendering chimney spews its greasy smoke over a widow’s flower garden. Something like that.

    However crawlingly Fox grovelled yesterday, however ready to lay down his partner for his political life, and whatever mock sincerity the Prime Minister pretended to evince, this was just more sleaze in the public’s mind, reinforcing the popular view of Parliament as the place where little men come to get rich. We don’t know what Wulpine got from Werrity; chocolates on the pillow, little splits of Moet or amusing cufflinks all seem possible. But over all hangs the stench of the glue works. “

Today, most workplaces (outside the less useful parts of the public sector) are sparsely staffed, so that even the most junior employee requires some self-motivation and basic gumption.

    You live up to your name, Simpleton. Spouting Labour lies again! The Tories actually INCREASED NHS spending year on year when in government. Labour almost doubled spending, thanks to massive increases in stealth taxes and it was all pissed away on overpaying G.P.s, wasting billions on a useless NHS computer system, increased bureaucracy, employing more managers than frontline staff and lumbering NHS trusts with massive PFI payments. We got only a small increase in productivity and an unacceptable level of deaths from MRSA and other hospital borne diseases in return. Labour made hospitals places to fear entering in case you contracted an untreatable, and possibly fatal, infection

    Hardly value for money.

    David Laws Lib Dem fiddler says:

    Cameron and Clegg were going to clean up politics- no tangible evidence to mark any difference in standards or the pervasive corruption at Westminster.

    Good old Slovakia had the courage to vote against the new EU bail outs- good for them.

    As I understand it, Cameron said the UK would not be involved in bail outs (we know he has not told the truth because of money leant to Ireland, and the £9 billion to the IMF in July etc). Why weren’t the Tory MPs whipped into line last night so all voted against the proposal in parliament? Why did Labour MPs abstain??

    Mass immigration continues unabated, swarms of overseas students entered the country with family members, despite Cameron’s pathetic attempts to claim action being taken to combat the situation yesterday. Today unemployment reaches record highs, public services swamped by demand, welfare claims increase, households where no family member has ever worked since the age of 16yrs increases (370,000 households, not people).

    Is it any wonder that public spending continues to rise from the few who pay tax. I would have liked to think some tangible progress would have been made since May 2010- I fail to see any. The situation on key policy areas is getting worse ie EU, immigration, defence, middle east wars, public spending, tax increases, inflation increasing, hidden government charges on energy bills, education, NHS, even the HRA remains the same with perverted outcomes and the list goes on.

    It is very hard to accept the facts that Gordon Brown did a better job than Cameron. It is almost unbelievable.

    If the press are going to ask questions about the burglary at Liam Fox’s they probably ought also to start digging around the burglary at Gordon Brown’s house when he was at a Labour conference in the early/mid 90s.

    Arthur C Clark lived there because the police/government allowed him to practise peadophilia. If rent boys float your boat then this is on your list of holiday destinations.

    How many on disability benefit have been shifted to unemployment benefit? Labour put over 2 million long term unemployed on Disability Benefit to keep the unemployment figures down.

    Engineer says:

    The Nimrod programme was crazy, as far as I can see. What’s the point in trying to adapt 40 year old airframes, none of which are the same, to provide something with a life expectancy of decades? Whichever senior civil servant sanctioned that in the first place should be summarily dismissed.

    If you’re skint, you take a pragmatic approach to purchasing. If the Yanks have brand new off-the-shelf airframes for under £200 million apiece, what’s the sense in spending billions resusitating scrap Comets? Unless, like the aircraft carriers, it was a Labour job creation scheme, there is no logic whatever.

    As to the Fox/Werritty question – Lord knows, but it all looks very rum at the moment.

    Lord Lucan says:

    I just can’t fathom how an apparently intelligent Minister of the Crown thought he could get away with infidelity for one, but two homos*xual infidelity with his boyfriend on official trips, possibly paid for by either taxpayers or party doners. If this is true Fox has no judgement whatsover and that alone makes him unfit for Cabinet office.

    Liam Foxy-Fox says:

    Hague’s what? He is just an element of my personal life. My wife enjoys the occasional threesome with an ugly brute.

    Jeez, it looks like they are all bloody gayers. It is just a buggery-fest in the Tory ranks at the moment.

    A Penchant for buggery seems to be the main downside of Private education (and the Navy)…

    The Other Bloke says:

    I think that it was Peter Wright (Spycatcher) who pointed out that homosexuals posed such a great security risk, not so muh from fear of exposure, but from their propensity to engage in risky behaviour and their emotional instability. He pointed this out some years before homosexual cabinet members resigned their posts after having lover’s tiffs with their chums.

    Jess The Dog says:

    Nimrod was crazy but they got it to work eventually … and they scrapped it. I think this may have had something to do with the lack of airworthiness of the MR2 airframe and its early (late?) retirement.

    I note the photo above with Dr Fox in his much needed flack jacket, he doesnt seem to have the obligatory and newly developed crotch cover, so valuable to our troops. Might this be an oversight on behalf of Werrity, Im sure he would be very upset if any accidents or injurys occured.?
