Paul Richards is clearly not happy about Guido’s run of scoops about the Labour Party’s internal problems.

 “It’s a great shame that someone thinks passing regular updates to Guido Fawkes is the best way of settling disputes. I’m a bit exasperated and I expect many Labour Party members will be too. It’s pretty despicable really.”

This zinger just in from a senior Labour source

“Its a bit f*****g rich of Paul Richards telling people to stop doing hostile briefings, it is a bit like desperate Dan telling everyone to go vegan.”

Our source reminds us that when he was Hazel Blears’ SpAd Paul Richards constantly briefed against John Prescott to try and further Hazel Blears’ position. The poisonous “YouTube if you want to” uncoded attack on Gordon Brown was drafted by him and he encouraged Hazel Blears to wear a “rock the boat” broach on the day of the European and local elections after she resigned.

“He was one of the most poisonous f*****g briefers working for anyone in the cabinet…”

… screams our exasperated Labour stalwart…

      Tonight from Hull we have on the panel:

      Gordoom McMong -Former nation destroyer and respected idiot savant.
      Tony B.Liar – former world leader now runs a property portfolio of billions.
      Yaswhinge Cryababy Brown – Hack – Blubberer & winner of the the biggest over reaction to a comment award.
      John Minor -Former nobody who accidentally became prime minister. You may laugh, but this is the stuff of Miliband’s dreams
      Chris ‘speedy’ Huhne – Former backstabbing minister, now replacement for Top Gear’s STIG.

      And the first question – yes ..the lady in the lesbo dungarees. The one who is so ugly, may in fact be a man.

        He was an honourable man (except when he was knobing that awful egg woman).

    Hello Guido,

    Universally we’d like to complain; we can’t talk about Ken now that you’ve pointed out what a poisonous txrd and liability he is. Of course being Labour we’ll “out the hypocrisy” if he wins by rounding on the enormous significance of a win for Labour.

    … and now this, it’s hard enough as it is polishing the txrd that is the Labour Party and you are helping to ruin it. So what if the majority of the scandal, drama and ineptitude is Labour?

    New guardian add is interesting , still best not to mention how shell companies work in offsetts .

    QT was a little tortuous and I missed NN , some interesting views on Afghanistan as we look back upon the PM visiting ground zero . Gen Dannat had a soldiers view , but that bit about the Blair/Bush years and misson creep shows how Historys change .
    Before 9/11 there were perhaps two documentarys on what had happend to Afghanistan , both of them pretty shocking stuff on what Talimen were doing compared to our liberal democracies . New York 9/11 site is now a memorial , where a new generation will make its mind up about Talimen . As night came on that eventfull day , I went for walk , trying to have some memories of my little home , before what would obviously be some armed action changed everything . We forget just how big the Tora Bora complex and arms stash was , or just how small some of the training camps were . The Talimen werent particulary a difficult enemy to stop , with modern technology , but large parts of Afghanistan were hot beds of Jihad , intent on war with the west , wether innocents or not . We dont really understand , how Talimen got Afghanis thinking , glory of Allah , for all those bringing death to none Allah . Talimen pretty much destroyed outside media acces , creating this insular world , unimaginable to us .
    I never doubted the use of armed force in Afghanistan , I mean what was the option , there were some good years post 2002 , when Afghanis realised they were better off without talimen , free to trade and run markets , roads got built , improved medical care . Democracy had some hope , even if it didnt catch on on the few Jurgas that occured . Curious inst it , you could build all the foundational aspects for an educated and basic health care society , and it rejects them , even though it may have been done in some sort of region or tribe way . I mean where are the clerics , who instead of saying only death to west , and interpreting sharia , thought hold a mo , if we do some education we might get a better ecnomomy or health care …. all gone and it seems Afghanis unable to tell which one is better as withdrawal is on cards and revert back to playing polo with headless goat . In a way I perhaps feel sorry for Afghanis , as somthing could have met on bridge of different cultures and given them a better country , they may still do somthing when troops withdraw , but at this moment that time for Afghani cultural hsitoric reflection seems as far away as in 2002 . I can understand that a country may want shut of invaders , but I cannot understand one that is incapable of even considering how it can improve for its own people through a pan nation goverment that offers some rule of law .
    Perhaps we can have a quite and safe withdrawal with recent events in mind , to mutual benefit , a bad withdrawal would not be in Afghanistans interests , if it looks ahead to next ten years . Theres trouble brewing near by in Syria , Irans going to have electronic banking transfer cut , its as much of moment for those with influence in thses near continually troubled states , to do somthing . We shall see . Perhaps hope isnt somthing Allah does .

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.
