Denied Day in Court

So after Guido having instructed solicitor Robert Dougans of Bryan Cave to formally submit a Witness Statement to Lord Justice Leveson, as so compelled under threat of imprisonment, Lord Justice Leveson now says he is discharging Guido from appearing tomorrow. Well Guido had a lot to say.

It is almost as if they are embarrassed at the string of cock-ups. First of all no crime has been committed. The evidence was not restricted until after it was published. Some might think that an inquiry into matters like press hacking and privacy should be careful to protect itself from press leaks.

Alastair Campbell went from “shocked” on Sunday at his draft evidence leaking to the media to explaining this morning that actually he had emailed his dodgy document to a few journalists, politicians and friends. How shocking to discover that there was no WMD it leaked.

So all that dark guff about the Leveson Inquiry’s computer security being compromised turned out to be rubbish and Alastair Campbell is shown to be a disingenuous manipulator, again. Oh, and under the terms of the Restriction Order Guido is not allowed to tell you what he was going to tell the judge in his Witness Statement tomorrow. Suffice to say Guido was refusing point blank to reveal his source’s name. Maybe Guido should just email it to a few close journalist friends…

    Well done Guido for reminding us what a mendacious Hunt Campbell is. It is extraordinary how he has become reinvented as part of the Great and the Good, wheeled out regularly on the BBC to pontificate from on high on all manner of things. This is the New Labour bully whose stock in trade was intimidation and manipulation of the media. He did the job so well that the country failed to spot, for many years, that his lord and master Tony Blair was no better than his servant. And this man is invited by Leveson to expatiate on the wrongdoing of the Press. What a joke! Keep up the good work Guido. Shame you can’t cross swords with m’Learned Friends tomorrow – some of us were looking forward to that.

    Charlotte Church’s old agent was on radio 4 earlier, he DID arrange for mix Church to sing 4 free at Ruperts wedding, just as he did 4 prince Charles. Church was lying to Leveson.

    They also checked other witness statements , Hugh Grant lied, his medical records were not hacked it was simply a film star turned up at A&E , all the staff and patients gossiped about it and someone phoned the Sun.

    Lots of other evidence given by witnesses was also discredited. The Inquisition is a farce.

    So let’s see – Tom Watson MP posts Alistair Campbell’s draft evidence to Levinson on his blog highlighting what Campbell is going to say, especially about Cheri and the bump.

    Order Order then reposts the same information on the basis it is now in the public domain. Campbell has a hissy fit at Order Order and Levinson ignores the original source of the on line information but blames Order Order instead and like some Peter Cook ‘Justice Cocklecarrot’ tries to lock up Guido simply because he is a nuisance to the establishment while deliberately misunderstanding his notes on players of the pink oboe…

    Is it just me or is Campbell using this load of crock to try and discredit any Order Order submission to Levinson?

    Nah, Campbell is as straight as a die, honest as the day is long …………

    Suggest now that Guido:

    1. restores the link
    2. advises Lord Justice Lost-his-mind that he has done so
    3. tell him it is not too late to change his mind but

    The story so far says:

    Guido posted first I believe, but thats irrelevant as Watson followed suit and then told leveson a cock and bull story about where he got it from , claiming he copied from guido. This story fell apart when it was realised guidos version was different from the one Watson posted as it contained redacted information which was visible in Watsons pisting, thus rendering his excuse as a lie.
    Campbell tried some damage limitation by admitting at leveson that he, him, alistair fucking campbell was in fact the one who sent numerous drafts of his statement out to various people in advance of the enquiry including to Journalsts and friendly politicians.
    It is now suspected that Watsons version came directly from Campbell.
    Watson has been caught out again yet the inquiry does not seem interested in calling him before it to explain himself.
    Guido has had his appearance cancelled no doubt to prevent further embarrasment to what is now taking on the form of a show trial.
    I say this as someone who has no particular love of the press .
    As it stands ihave no fith in this enquiry.

    Has it dawned on Levity that Guido was about to tell truths that many do not want spoken publicly? Has Levity realised that people like Campbell and Watson are quite capable of manipulating the press or whoever else they see fit to, and willing to do so at the drop of a hat?

    Some journalists behave like vultures. Some politicians and spin-doctors behave much worse. Levity may be starting to realise what a nest of vipers politics can be, and thus why a free press is so vital to hold them accountable to the people they (supposedly) serve.

    This rigged inquiry has become a total farce. Leveson has shown himself to be not only biased but also totally incompetent. How this tosser ever became eligible to preside over legal proceedings is beyond me.

    It’s not just Leveson though. That four-eyed bearded idiot Q.C. that’s masquerading as Counsel for the Inquiry is just as bad, if not worse. He’s almost apologetic when questioning the various misfits, crooks and sleazebags that have made up the witness list, even though he’s been as easy on them as Stephanie Flanders would be on interviewing the two Eds.

    I suspect leveson had a rude awakening and reaised, once alycampbell admitted bald faced, that he had leaked his own submission, that he’d made a gross error in letting alycampbell bully him on Sunday into calling Guido to give evidence. So hence the ‘invitation’ was withdrawn.

    This will save 20% of the shirkers salaries and clear the national deficit in a fortnight.

    Lord Leveson: Thankyou. I am most grateful for your appearance here today and for your invaluable evidence from someone representative of the broadcasting side of the media. Just before you go I would like to tentatively enquire whether you would be prepared to answer a question of my own which would, I think, help me to understand the wider aspects of your evidence. There is no obligation to answer this question so you can say if you would rather not reply.

    Ms Diamond (apprehensively): If I can help, my Lord, I will.

    Lord Leveson: As I said, there is no need to answer this question if you do not feel inclined but it would be helpful if you could. The question I would like to put (ahem) is whether you have ever felt the urge to write articles for the tabloid press.

    Ms. Diamond: Well I have from time to time done so, according, obviously, to the best codes of practice.

    Lord Leveson: So the article in the ‘Daily ****’ headlined (ahem): ‘Fatty French Finally Falls For Fitter Figure’ was written in accordance with those codes of practice?

    Ms. Diamond: The headlines were nothing to do with me. I was invited to write a piece about Ms French and her astonishing reduction in weight. I am a great fan and I wrote a very supportive article from the view point of someone who also had a very real weight problem.

    Lord Leveson: That was clearly in the public interest?

    Ms. Diamond: Every woman will relate to the problems Ms French faced in the aftermath of her personal predicaments which had nothing to do with her public persona.

    Lord Leveson: I am much obliged. There are no more questions. I think we could all adjourn now for a nice cup of tea.

    Campbell and Twatson and the Guardian and the BBC and Leveson, they know who the enemy is and they have all the ‘evidence’ they need. Plus a string of desperate B list faders up for a little face time of course. It helps to have a tear jerker tale teller on board to tug those heart strings, real evidence? They dont need no steekin evidence! Actually that scumbag with the pie was a brilliant poster boy for the inquiry, that is what this inquiry is really all about and at the end of it the press will be gagged except for the state approved organs.

    Leveson had his conclusions handed to him before he sat down for the 1st day didnt he? In comes Twatson on his anti Murdoch jihad leaking titbits to his BBC and guardian friends. Its a show trial, and show trials dont like the script changing, cannot handle their set piece theatre being upset. Campbell and Twatson? Well, they just made an honest mistake didnt they? Happens all the time, doesnt everyone perjure themselves, deliberately mislead and lie to a legal inquiry every day? Happens to me every day.

    The Leveson “show business” Enquiry is becoming a running joke.
    It was categorically denied that Charlotte Church was offered £100k for her appearance etc from reliable sources, and that the offer of favourable publicity was offered and given, especially in the USA.
    So this could all turn very nasty on those zzzzz celebs trying to make publicity out of the big bad media.
    My advice to Guido is to not bother to take any part in it.
    More and more it reminds me of Stalin’s show trials with the doctors, generals etc.

    Yes, but the important thing to remember, nell, is the public sector ‘workers’ don’t want to contribute towards their own pensions. So obviously, everyone else should be more than happy to cough-up on their behalf. I mean, why wouldn’t we be overjoyed with this expectation?

    I don’t know about you, but I personally long to have my wages taken away from me and paid into a public-sector workers’ pension scheme, so they can have a pension I can’t afford.

    There’s a theory, one of the ones that tries to give a practical explanation for ships vanishing in the Bermuda Triangle. This is that a reservoir of methane hydrates — methane and water frozen together into ice — under the ocean floor partially melts from time to time, releasing a burst of gas that turns the ocean above it into a foam. The foam is lighter than water, so a ship on its surface sinks instantly, without warning or time to send a Mayday call.

    Tonight’s Panorama was probably an indicator of ALL that is wrong within the BBC.

    A young Russian girl has been going around shagging prominent Western defence officials/politicians, all of them very old married men. Then MI5 quite rightly decides to question this young girl and after questioning her MI5 thinks it is best to send her back to Russia.

    In other times this would seem reasonable but The BBC thinks otherwise and they produce a panorama show to insist that the attractive young Russian girl is only shagging old lecherous western defence connected men because she is in love with them.

    The BBC is a national disgrace and a laughing stock.

    (Tue Nov 29th – – ‘Watson Apologises to Judge’)
    “The Inquiry is satisfied that Mr Watson obtained his version of the statement from the Guido Fawkes website, rather than through other means.”

    It’s been said before, but, as Guido’s statement was redacted and Watsons wasn’t, it’s now patently clear Watsons statement came from Campbell and not Guido.

    The point here is, no logic on Earth can leave the legal inquiry ‘satisfied’ with Watsons ‘blame Guido’ apology. After Campbells statement, shouldn’t this taken further?

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
