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.

    "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.

Owen Paterson lifts the lid on the Green Blob:

“I received more death threats in a few months at Defra than I ever did as secretary of state for Northern Ireland.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
