Former Screws political editor Ian Kirby updates Facebook status

“Is astonished. I never knew there were two Alastair Campbells. The one I know told me Peter Mandelson was insane, but insisted I used it anonymously, persuaded Tony Blair to change the law in response to News of the World campaigns, spent years trying to befriend the Daily Mail and invented the claim that Sir John Major wore his shirt tucked in his underpants. He also encouraged me and Andy Coulson to ask Tony Blair if he and Cherie were in the Mile High Club to make a good headline. I’m worried that AC has been kidnapped and no-one noticed.”

    Billy Bowden is the most hated poster on here says:

    Campbell was more of a politicon than a politicon.

    Sounds like the behaviour of someone in immediate danger of a breakdown. Oh – wait.

      Making fun of someone who has suffered from a mental illness is really big, clever and funny. Oh, wait NO IT IS NOT

    "Billy Bowden" is a figment of our imaginations says:

    Surprised somebody hasn’t posted a clip of Humphrey Bogart as Captain Queeg from the Caine Mutiny yet.

    If Campbell said it was Wednesday today, I’d go and check. The word ‘liar’ doesn’t do that b*stard justice. We’ll have to invent a word to describe him – any suggestions?

    The Last Quango in Paris says:

    He’s the only one who’s worried. How can an unelected Spinner cause so much damage and have such influence? Hope he and his Mrs are raising a glass to free schools tonight?

    Also, seems to me all private schools were open today whilst the state ones often weren’t – therefore Miliband and Balls, by supporting these strikes are widening the gap between the rich and poor.

    That FB status is ‘not available’ any more!

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
