Coulson Hung Out to Dry

Andy Coulson has today lost his claim to get his legal fees paid by News International. As you contemplate tucking into your Christmas dinner and unwrapping the presents under the tree, reflect on the fragility of our lives. At the beginning of the year Andy Coulson was one of the most powerful men in the country, at the right-hand of the Prime Minister in Downing Street. Now he is a virtually unemployable pariah, abandoned by the Murdochs he long served and disowned by David Cameron whom he propelled into office. He is said to be selling his home and taking his children out of their private schools as he faces criminal charges which could lead to a lengthy imprisonment in the New Year.  Some will say he deserves everything he gets.

The greasy pole is a dangerous thing. Remember to be nice to people you meet on the way up…

    I feel sorry for Mr Coulson – why are they picking certain people off? It’s obvious that most of Fleet Street were either at it, endorsed it or knew about it so why is this going on?

    he should plead diminished responsibility and tell the court that legal proceedings were a “threat to his life, not just to his liberty” … looks like that will work for thief Margaret Moran

    With friends like Cameron…….

    No doubt Mr Coulson has a file or two squirreled away.

    And if he doesn’t then the Murdochs certainly do.

    Payback for the leftist hypocrits will be a bitch after Leveson.

    If Cameron can sh_t on his mates so easily then he will have no problems selling out the UK to the EUSSR and the Falklands to the Argentinians.

    Today South America declared war on Britain – where is William Hague? Why no repsonse at all from the FO or Downing Street?

    The Party that loses the Falklands will never be forgiven.

    Judging from the dwindling membership at the Conservative club I visited in the East Midlands last night it is a given that many Conservatives have seen through Dave & will indeed be voting UKIP.

    Piers Morgan supports LABOUR. Any crime, hypocrisy etc. committed by a LABOUR supporter is completely OK as it is done for the ‘greater good’.

    Andy Coulson of course is an evil baby burning Tory and hence, for him, boiling an egg for breakfast is a crime punishable by excommunication.

    Amazing that this cr*p still continues with Brown, Blair and Campbell being far from power. Cameron must be either extremely devious or pretty weak.

    Sandra says:

    When can we expect a robust response from Hague to the declaration of hostilities against the United Kingdon today from a cabal of South American countries?

    The least we should do is reciprocate & ban all vessels flying their flags from our ports & waters.

    And of course as Lord West has rightly demanded – send a nuclear sub immediately.

This will embolden Kirschner – Hague had better strat taking her very seriously – not to do so will cause bloodshed. A show of strength is needed – and of course to ban Argentine, Brazilian and Uruguay flag carrying vessels from our ports and waters.

    What is it that he’s supposed to have done? In the flying dust and shrapnel of the collapsing Euro, I think we have all forgotten.

    If it was to publish stuff about “celebs” that they were cretinous enough to “tweet” or to “say” on their voicemails, then all I have to say is “if you don’t think you’d be able to stand the heat, then stay well out of the kitchen.”

    Why couldn’t the slebbuggers walk up to whoever it was they were communicating with, and just say it…? They can even afford the air fares, if one is in Mustique (wherever that is) and the other is in Bali (I think I know where that might be, sort of.) They’d have been immune to bugging and hacking then. Unless, of course, GCHQ had a local microphone.

    Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

    What profit hath a man of all his labor which he taketh under the sun?
    One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.

    The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.

    The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.

    All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full: unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.

    All things are full of labor; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.

    The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

    Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

    There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

    Admiral Leach says:

    Hague needs to make a firm diplomatic response to this we’ve seen what happens when South Americans read the situation wrong due to a lack of forcefulness. The fleet is in a dire condition possibly the worst since King James I let it rot in port.

    The only real thing in our favour from the military point of view is that the Argentine forces are in a worst state than ours so we would be able to deploy a small force that would reinforce any diplomatic action. The key thing is that we’ve let Argentines build this alliance against us through a combination of tactless commercial activity and lack of focus.

    By all means start exploring for oil and exploit the fishing resources but do it so that it builds regional alliances that isolate the Argentines as intransigent letting other South American nations benefit from the development.

    Mrs Margaret Thatcher says:

    Dear Argentinians,

    are you enjoying your freedom and democracy? Do your wives and daughters appreciate not being kidnapped, raped, tortured and “disappeared”?

    Are you glad the Junta which heaped those miseries upon you, is gone?

    We did that for you.

  142. 142
    Admiral Leach says:

    Quite right to remind them of the awful nature of their previous rulers, we should be as accommodating as possible on sharing the economic benefits of the waters around the Falklands with the Argentines, but the issue of sovereignty cannot be part of this.

    We seek peaceful prosperity for the Falklands and its neighbours, but attempting to ‘blockade’ the island is not conducive to this aim and our government should be making the strongest diplomatic efforts to ensure that is understood.

    Ahhh, the smell of burnt flesh, sauteed in morality and served with a double helping of hypocrisy.

    There, but for the grace of incompetence, goes one person, of many, that society would like to eviscerate, pour encourager les autres.

    One has a touch of sympathy for the lad, after the performance of Piers Morgan, he was only doing what was an industry standard.

    I thought Coulson was Cameron’s friend.

    At least that is what Cameron used to say when giving Press interviews.

    I never liked Cameron and now people can see why.

    I never liked Coulson but am beginning to feel sorry for the guy.

    Our current Government has dismantled the Royal Navy, sold off the Harrier sqns, scrapped the Nimrod. No wonder the argies think that they are on a roll concerning the Falklands.

    Merkozy says:

    “Once upon a time there was a wicked leader. He ruled over the land with a mix of terror and arrogance. All his subjects were afraid of him.
    The ruler ordered all his people to gather for a census in the town of their birth.
    Public transport, that had been world class in 2010, had completely broken down by 2011 and so a poor, single, mother to be, was forced to travel by donkey.

    When she arrived in Bethnel Greenham she found all the hospitals were closed down by order of the wicked government and his evil cabinet cabal. So too was the sure start centre that had been the only thing keeping the economy going since 2009.
    She asked at a hostel but the manager was so uneducated having not gone to university because of tuition fees that he directed her to a shed out the back instead of a room.

    Being poor, and uneducated as she had not even stayed on at college because the uncaring government had scrapped the EMA that tens of millions of children depended on, she accepted this shed. It was full of animals as inflation had made food unaffordable for ordinary hardworkingfamilies.

    As she lay in the pain of childbirth, unable to afford even the most basic of prescription medications, she saw through a hole in the roof a very bright star directly overhead.

    “Lo, a wonder that I can see such a star. It must be because the council have shut all the street lights off as an austerity measure.”

    And in that lowly stable a beautiful baby boy was born on a bed of straw surrounded by livestock.

    And all because of the Tories. See what that awful David Cameron has reduced the country too! Its a disgrace. It really is.”

    The Nativity.
    As read by Ed Miliband to the mini-Milibands.

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.”
